I am a Tor Browser user, and I really like the Firefox interface. According to my about page, my Firefox browser is up to date. But For some reason I cannot save desktop shortcuts for a website. Every time I drag the icon next to a website (variously a glob, a green lock, and other icons), I get a denial mouse icon anywhere I try to put the web shortcut on the desktop. This even happens when I drag bookmarks from my bookmark bar! My guess is that something is blocked in the Tor settings that won't allow shortcuts. Any suggestions on where the shortcuts settings are in Firefox?

Yesterday I installed FF 43.0 - 64bit. I did as clean install as I could, uninstalled old version, and deleted from HDD every "mozilla" and "firefox" directory I could find. Since then, I am unable to access next sites (I believe list is not complete): https://www.google.com/ https://www.facebook.com/ https://www.google.com/maps https://www.google.rs/?gws_rd=ssl

Error msg is alwaays the same: "You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.google.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure. Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. What Should I Do? If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue. This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate. Technical details: www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)"

Sites that I can normaly access with this FF are: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/ https://translate.google.com/ https://mail.google.com/

All other browsers can access all sites without problems.

Hello

I have spent 3 days trouble shooting this and can't resolve it. Firefox won't load pages, just get a grey spinning circle forever. No other message. I close firefox and restart, it won't start as it is still running in background. Task manager will not close it. I have to reboot the PC. I have tried deleting profiles, which helps for a few minutes then it locks again. I tried re-installing firefox and again it works for a few minutes then nothing. I have completely deleted all 'appdata' and still no luck. New profile doesn't help. I checked all security settings, firewall, etc. and nothing helped. I tried safe mode and the problem still exists. I have used firefox for years and now may have to walk away. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Hi all, I am seeing this problem since I wiped my computer and installed Windows 10 a couple of days ago. Just to clarify, everything was fine on Windows 8.1, which I was previously using.

I see that fonts are not correctly renderded, there is a lot of aliansing and they're quite thin. They are ugly. The problem is well described in this ticket. https://support.mozilla.org/it/questions/1115938.

I have tried to reset Firefox, run withot plugin, nothing changes. Here you can find values I see in about:support. I use Firefox in Italian, i have translated these values in English. I don't remember what values I had in W8.1, but my suspect is that my GPU (AMD HD7950) is not detected/enabled correctly by Firefox. http://pastebin.com/QEmYBXpp

I noticed: - DirectWrite enabled false - Assert D3D11 device creation failed: 0x887a0004 - Support for H264 HW decoding No; Hardware video decoding disabled or blacklisted

Maybe I should not say this (lol) but Chrome does render fonts properly on my machine.

Can somebody help me please? Thanks

After updating Firefox to version 43, Firefox now recognizes when text fields are selected and auto pops-up the virtual on-screen keyboard. The issue is that this breaks several websites and heavily interferes with web browsing (since I use a wireless keyboard and mouse with my tablet, having the virtual keyboard pop-up is useless). I'd much rather have the previous behaviour where I choose to have keyboard pop-up when I click on the taskbar button.

Several websites, once visited, have text fields auto-selected which trigger the keyboard to show up. This is very annoying.

How can I disable Firefox from having the on-screen keyboard auto pop-up?

NOTE: This is a NEW ISSUE in the 43rd version of Firefox, I've installed a vanilla copy of Firefox 42 and it does not have this issue. Once I've updated to 43, the issue appears. (Currently running Windows 8.1)

Operating system: OS X 10.9

Starting about four months ago, I began to see untitled and non-selectable windows spawning after my browser had been open for a while (i.e. after I visited a few sites). The number of these invisible windows grows over time, but are removed if I close the browser and start a new session. This has persisted through many new versions of Firefox.

I tried turning off all of the add-ons. Still happened.

I tried keeping track of what sites caused the problem. No correlation.

Today I uninstalled Firefox, using AppZapper -- which should have removed everything -- then did a new install. The only thing that I imported were bookmarks from the backup directory in my old Profile folder.

...and it's happening again. Here is a screen shot: http://imgur.com/ojcODd1

(Sorry for my bad english, it's not my native language) Hello, it's been many months that I have a problem with automatic scrolling Firefox Maintain pressure on the mouse wheel can slide in all directions of the web page, very useful for long pages and also for very high resolution pictures.

Off for several release (from 40.0.0 I think but not certainty), scrolling stops and / or is extremely slow and choppy until the page is not fully charged. This is all the more painful if we wait for loading a heavy image on a slow site.

I tested with the Firefox Safe Mode and it changes nothing. Disable graphics acceleration nor solves this defect. Test a new blank profile ... Remove and reinstall Firefox ... Namely I met no automatic scrolling problem on Internet Explorer or Chrome.

As I visit large high resolution photo galleries, is often sucks having to wait finish loading before dragging on the page with the pressed wheel. I leave then your knowledge to help me determine the source of this defect.

P.S. Windows 7 x64 with ATI HD7870 2go

This morning I updated to Firefox 36. All seems well on certain pages, but I am noticing periodic long lags as some of my own websites load. I have done the "reset firefox" and went through the whole process retaining only my permissions.sqlite and cookies.sqlite. Then I began the re-adding of the three extensions I have:

Expire History By Days

Firebug

Places Maintenance

When I had "rebuilt" everything I tried the same trying again and kept finding the same lag. I do delete cache (only) on exit. I have no malware or viruses on my box (it is also a server). With 35.01 I did not have this problem, but with 36 it remains. So I believe I have done everything necessary to make 36 correct, however the problem remains. On was with a YaBB bulletin board which loads in about a second in 35.01 but spins for several seconds before loading on 36. The other is a simple site for one of my clients which should load fast. I ran speed tests on both of these sites and they did not show anything unusual.

The Uri's in question are: http://www.wisearch.com/wcwcwboard/YaBB.pl (speed test a shows 891 microseconds) For me it "spun" for about 5+ seconds. and http://www.glytek.com/ (speed test shows 276 microseconds) Same Lag as above.

I got tired of this and did a reversion via windows restore on the two application data folders and the main program files Mozilla Firefox. Essentially, I am now back on 35.01 and unless something enlightening occurs I guess I am off the "update" boat.

It's too bad...I had been waiting for 36 and was downloading it before it was even showing up on the Mozilla Release Notes page (it is now showing up): https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/releases/

Any ideas?

In Firefox 36, once you hit the right hand edge of the box that you type your post into, rather than it automatically moving down to the next line, it just continues on to the right and a horizontal scrollbar appears, like this: -

http://i.imgur.com/xkVP5Ck.jpg

I have tried upgrading to the latest beta version of Firefox 37, but the problem remains. I have also tried restarting Firefox in safe mode, with all extensions disabled, but it's the same. As soon as I downgrade back to 35.1 again, it works fine.

Is this a bug in Firefox? Is there an advanced setting I can change somewhere so that this doesn't happen?

I have been running Firefox 64Bit on Windows 7. Recently I have been having problems trying to watch movies online, Firefox keeps returning a message that the Shockwave player was out of date, you go to the link but it returns you to the same page. Finally figured out that it only supports updating the 32Bit version.

Uninstalled the 64Bit version, rebooted computer as advised, downloaded the 32Bit version. Ran an update on adobe flash player then ran the install for the 32Bit version of Firefox.

The extractor runs quickly but then nothing else happens. I have shut down and downloaded a fresh copy of the 32Bit version again and again the extractor goes through perfectly and again nothing else happens. I have tried this process with both the full and stub versions with exactly the same results.

Why will it not install?
