Another long time user that has been with you for years has had enough, over to Opera where I can write an email without looking like an unprofessional dummy that can't even use spell checker.

Linux mint 14, fully updated, two different pc's both same problem with spellchecker, this problem has been going on for a long time now. Do you really expect people to use a browser without a spellcheck? This has been a 'bug' for how long now? People just go elsewhere, why wouldn't you, try running a business and sending people sketchy looking emails.

I fix PC's for a living, I used to put everybody onto Thunderbird and Firefox, do you think I still do that? Obviously like the people I know who do the same thing for a living, I put them onto Chrome so they don't ring me complaining that it doesn't work properly.

You guys are loosing market share for a reason, we need a functional non bloated browser that doesn't freeze and crash all the time, forget the fancy add-ons and themes, make the basics work because from the techiest person to the most useless pleb luddite, we all need the basics to work or the browser is a useless piece of crap.

This site is proof of how you are alienating people too, I go to register and it tells me I don't need to register for a new question, I click on that and half way through it asks me to register, then when registering it took about 6 tries for your javascript to accept it: "username too short", "password is short", "username exists". Tell us before ffs! I nearly gave up and shut the window. Anybody unfamiliar with pc's would have given up after a try or two and gone back to IE.

Please, please, get your stuff together, I love Mozilla and I love Firefox, it's named after my favourite baddies in the original Donkey Kong, ffs, I love you guys, get back to basics and make a functional browser that people prefer to IE, you are killing it, get back to basics and make it FUNCTIONAL

I've had this weired problem with Firefox. While i was browsing an error message come up saying cannot connect to the website... check proxy settings. In other tabs there were some chinese sentence saying basically the same thing. Other browsers worked fine. So i did a research and found this forum: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/715401#answer-121372 which suggested to set the proxy settings to no proxy. I did that and worked but when i closed and restarted firefox again the problem was still persisted. So i tried again but this time at the proxyx settings tab by clicking to the network tab the poping up window was not the same instead it was a window with some autoproxy setting window so i was not be able to set it to "no proxy" again. And also with the previous attempt i found out that there was some weired proxy set that i have never seen: 218.201.21.176:80. I went back to the forum for more research and i found that i should disable some add-ons so i did disable foxy proxy. The problem seems to be gone now however my question is: 1. What's changed my proxy settings? 2. Can it be a trojan, virus or malware? 3. If it is one of them How is it possible, when i'm using ubuntu (13.04)? 4. How can i comfirm this?

Thanks for the help

I have a new machine with a new install of Ubuntu 12.04. In Firefox the menu bar is missing. I have the black border with 3 buttons in the left and the current page title. I also have a tabs bar and toolbars. I've looked in the forum/help and tried the suggestions there, here's what happened:

If I right-click the tab bar, the only toolbars shown in the drop-down menu are Navigation, Bookmarks and Add-ons, so I can't show the menu bar that way.

I don't have a Firefox button.

I've tried creating a new toolbar and moving all buttons except the address field and google search across in case it was a lack of space on the toolbar but that didn't help.

I can't reset the profile as I don't have a help menu.

I've re-installed Firefox and there was no change.

Does anyone have other suggestions please?

What if you aren't even given the check spelling or languages menu option yet the broken red line under mispelled words occurs and no spelling suggestions made when right clicking on those words?

In my about:config i do have the following in bold: spellchecker.dictionary;en-US user set string en-US

I need to install an older version of Java on my Redhat 5 Enterprise workstation.

Since Firefox 17.0.5 the installation folder changed from /usr/lib64/mozilla to /usr/lib64/firefox. In the 64 bits version, there is no plugins folder, is that normal?

When I create the missing plugin folder and that I install the java plugin in it, it does not appears in the plugins list.

The 32 bits installation is working though ( /usr/lib/firefox/firefox ).

I've tried installing flash player a dozen times, with both the instructions on the adobe page and the mozilla page. I'm running Fedora Core 11 with Mozilla 3.5.9. I've gotten "libflashplayer.so" and copied it to every "mozilla/plugins" directory on the drive. It does not work and is not listed when I bring up "tools/add-ons." One instruction said to copy "flashplayer.xpt" to the "mozilla/commponents" directory, but the download included no such file and I have no such directory. (Probably pertains to an older version.) I've tried downloading it with the .tar, .gzip, and yum; all with the same result. It doesn't work online and doesn't show up in my plug-ins.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Only time I've tried to install it.

I have a new install of fedora18 and I was trying to recover my firefox settings from a backup. The backup doesn't maintain file ownership so I ran 'chown -R john:john /home/john'. Now I can't start firefox, probably because of a file permission issue but if I remove the firefox dir and try to start firefox again it will create a new firefox dir and put a Crash Reports dir in it and then fail with an access denied error. So where is the premissions issue???

After the last Firefox update to Firefox 19.0.2, I got the error message "Couldn't load XPCOM" when i attempted to open my Netflix Desktop App, I did not get that error message when starting Firefox only when trying to open Netflix. I thought it had something to do with Netflix so I removed it then reinstalled but the error message continued. I searched and asked questions to no avail. I did a command line search: "locate /xpcom" It came up with a list of files relating to xpcom, only one refering to Firefox itself and they all ended with xpcom.dll. When i did a search in the File folder I found this: usr/lib/firefox/libxpcom.so .

One of the people trying to help told me this: "The error is caused by the lack of the path "/usr/lib" in the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH Solution Add the /usr/lib path to the environment variable in this way: export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"

I was informed to do the following:

"Get to a command line prompt (CLP) and use gedit to add that line to your .bashrc file: your.account> gedit .bashrc when you're done, just save and exit. Log out and back in, and from then on whenever you log in, it will be in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH for you. You might also want to copy .bashrc to some sort of saved version; I use bashrc.sav."

No change.

I have done a reinstallation of Firefox and numerous reinstallation of Netflix all with no change.

Is there a chance that a complete removal of Firefox followed by a reinstallation correct the problem? i don't want to do that unless it is the only solution.
