WOW long time Mozilla Firefox user, but new update just keeps getting better and better ( NOT!) It took away my icons bookmarks etc, and started giving me forbidden access errors for websites and would not let me open sponsor links in Amazon, and would not let me re- download updated yahoo tool bar, and I could go on and on, but the point is: this was NOT beta version, its the real deal and all it is ends up being more trouble than its worth! WHY oh WHY must Mozilla update and yet make it all worse for it's users? I spent hours trying to find work arounds, etc, and finally have been forced to go back uninstall it and install the Mozilla 35 version that might not be perfect, but it works and so does all my stuff work in it. The other thing, I do the syncing, but that does not help get anything back and I do the mozbackup ( software program) but it would not fix the issues Mozilla firefox 36 has.

So I guess like many others, I will have to wait around till its been out awhile and see if same issues, then go back to 35 if all else fails. This is why I stayed so long on FF 17 or 19 anything to keep from updating, but I know I know, its about security blahblah blah... so i finally break down and update, but always always always to my dismay it takes me hours to get things back or get them right or lose them altogether frankly I wish there would be no final update until testing is really done, i know you can't help what add on's etc we have as there are so many, but beyond those crashes or not working add on situations, there are problems with this update ( and so many of them) so can you please fix them before you put this stuff out there for us to use???

In an attempt to find out why Firefox keeps logging me out of my email and Facebook three or four times a day, I have search the internet as well as the Firefox forum. Everything seems to depend on my being able to find "tools." I have the version of Firefox (34?) that has the three bars in the upper right-hand corner which, when clicked, opens a menu of icons, none of which is "tools."

In both versions 34. and 35. when I go to any Google site I get a pop-up box "Opening" with a message about opening 'application/octet-stream' and asking what should Firefox do with it. This never happened to me in version 33. and I have scoured the message boards looking for others reporting this problem but can't find it so must be something with my system config but I don't know how to troubleshoot it. Running Windows 8.1, Kaspersky virus protection on a Dell Envy AMD A10 processor ... I like Firefox and don't want to stay on version 33 so any help is appreciated.

So in the past 2-3 weeks Firefox has been really been frustrating to deal with on YouTube.

These are the issues I am having: - When in "My Subscriptions" and trying to hide videos from clicking the arrow in the top right corner, nothing happens. - Using the "Watch Later" button that appears in the lower right corner of the thumbnail does not work. - When in "Watch Later" list cannot rearrange videos by dragging on the three dots on the left of the video tab. - When in "Watch Later" list cannot remove videos by clicking the x in the top right corner of the video tab.

Yesterday only it worked for like a few minutes and then it was back to not working. Is anybody else experiencing these issues? In Chrome it works without a problem. I've been even considering moving to Chrome cause of this which I would hate to do. I thought the new update that came out today would fix this but nope, still nothing.

And on the side note: When will Firefox implement 60 FPS video playing on YouTube? Come on now Mozilla, you're slacking.

Yahoo Toolbar (added from Firefox Add-ons) stopped working when I updated to Firefox 36 on both my Windows 7 & 8 computers so I RE-Installed Firefox 35 via a 3rd party download site. I didn't have the same problem on My Linux Computers until today when My Linux Computer UPDATED to Firefox 37. Now the only link which will show up on the Yahoo Toolbar is my "Mail" link.

It seems (based upon my research) that Mozilla is trying to sweep this screw-up under the carpet by blaming Yahoo, and yet they continue to display the link/add-on in their "Add-on Repository" ! Maybe Mozilla need to find a better Janitor cause the current one can't seem to See or even Smell the manure they're shoveling !

Don't get me wrong. I've been using Firefox & Yahoo Toolbar for 8+ years and been a fan of both, but I ditched Micro$oft Window$ because of Compatibility Issues within their own Software Programs. I would like to continue to use Firefox and Yahoo toolbar, But if they can't manage to work together and find a solution I WILL solve the problem by "Ditching Them Both" in favor of another provider and take all my current tech customers with me when I do. FYI, they number in the thousands.

I use PayPal for many of my online purchases. While I have been able to open my PayPal website, it displays as text only in a column on the left side of my screen. This display is not user friendly. This is the only website that this happens on; all my other secure sites open and display just fine. What's the problem with PayPal not working on Firefox? I can go to Chrome and the website opens just fine but that's a bit inconvenient since I'm vested in Firefox. Could I have something set wrong in my Tools and Options or is this strictly a Firefox problem? Help!

I tried using Google Chrome and was able to connect to Verizon's Email and News, therefore, I presume that this is a problem with Mozilla Firefox.

Hello

I recently upgraded from Windows 7 'Firefox 35 to 36' and noticed that after a restart i was still logged into pages days later after reloading Firefox, and I have just tested on another laptop which is running Firefox 35 that this is not an issue and seems only to be an issue in Firefox 36.

I then realised this is a 'Massive Security Issue' and did a test logging into my bank account then closing down Firefox 36 and restarting my laptop and found that i was still actually logged into my bank account free to carry on banking as normal. - THIS IS A MAJOR CONCERN NEEDS RECTIFYING ASAP !

Imagine the scenario of a user with basic knowledge using a public computer thinking that by closing down Firefox and the machine completely without clearing cookies they would be secure and totally logged out, but not the case and totally open to any other users to use the account to their advantage.

I personally have found a couple of work arounds for this which are:-

- When Firefox Starts: Show my homepage

- About:config - browser.sessionstore.privacy_level (user set 2)

I would appreciate a response regarding this as i see this as a major issue, and would like someone to acknowledge the problem.

Kind regards J Booth

Sometimes when I'm doing some casual browsing, Firefox will hang and about twenty seconds later I'll receive a popup message stating that Script: Chrome://browser/content/tabbrowser.xml:2088 [sometimes also entries: 2054 and 2077] have stopped responding. Occasionally, I'll see if the script will respond by selecting 'continue' but it always hangs until I stop the script.

The entries seem to always differ from the last on what has stopped responding. It's more often 2088 rather than the other two mentioned. The browser will not let me continue without the script because it will hang and send me another error until I choose to stop the script entirely.

I am unsure of what the script wants me to do in order to stop it from becoming unresponsive.

While it is not a major issue for me, it causes an annoyance in that whenever this occurs and I stop the script, the tabs will not close. Any tab I open becomes permanent until I restart Firefox.

Hopefully someone here can help me as I have not found any solution or mention of this issue (with solution) elsewhere.

I've upgraded Firefox and Java to all of the newest versions but it's still not working. When I go to the Java control panel, under "Advanced" and under "Default Java for browsers", the check box next to "Mozilla family" won't stay checked. I'll check it, click "Apply" and "Ok" and then when I open it back up it's unchecked again.

There is a 120mb folder called "storage" in my profile directory which wasn't there before. The last time I checked was when I disabled disk cache some weeks ago (guess it may have to do). The Offline Web Content and User Data options seem irrelevant, so I would like to know what it is, and how to prevent it from being created, or at least growing so much. 106mb of it is in a "temporary" subfolder for unrealengine.com, but if it is temporary, why is it still there weeks after I visited that site? I'm just trying to minimize drive usage and occupation as much as I can without losing usability, so any other tips for that would be welcome.
