Private Browsing issues: New window is a "pop-up" & Right-clicking bookmarks shows grayed-out options

When I'm in private browsing mode in Firefox 38.0.1 for Windows 8.1, I cannot do the following things.

1. When I click on a link to open a new window, that new window is like a pop-up window (no menus, no scroll-bars). But I have pop-up windows blocked, so it acts like but is not technically a pop-up window since it's not being blocked.

2. When I choose a bookmark and then right-click on it to choose another bookmark either in a new window or new tab (or any of the other options that appear), the text is grayed out so that I cannot choose it.

Are these "issues" normal for Firefox 38.0.1?

I have a page with all the links I like to use; I've been using it for years. Each link on the page spawns a new page (target="_blank"). All of a sudden the new pages come up with nothing but a non-editable address bar... no menu bar, no search field, no toolbars. That's not the way new page links have ever behaved and I want them to continue to behave the way they've always worked.

I have to say, I'm really tired of the Firefox development team deciding to change the behavior of things and make it a requirement that i spend a couple hours or more finding out what they've done, why they've done it, and how to fix it. Y'all seem to think that every time you come up with a marvelous idea we're all supposed to just love it and the idea that we might not is unthinkable to you.

I can maximize the window size, but have no way to see the lower part of the page.... [ see attached capture]

NOTE... it states at the top of that capture Private Browsing... The scrollbars/menubar/bookmark bar are gone., That capture is a pop-up....it is suppose to be a new private browsing window/web page.

- This is definitely a bug in the last upgrade. - using ver 38.0.1 - Browsing in a normal window works fine...that link opens in a new window fine, as is expected. , but something's broken when browsing in private windows. - Resetting mozilla did not fix the problem.

I have my system set to tell me when a new upgrade is available. That happened today. I uploaded the latest upgrade. My Firefox is now sitting at 38.0.1.

I don't use tabs. I want a new separate window for everything I open. Since the upgrade this morning... when I open a brand new window it is fine. But when I click on something in that window when a new opens it doesn't appear to be a full new window. There are no tool bars and there doesn't seem to be any way to have any toolbars displayed. Therefore I have no control over that new window except to minimize or close. That's it. It is not appearing as a tab either.

This sucks! Was this intended?

How do I get back to the previous version before this morning's upgrade? Otherwise I will have to find another application to use other than Firefox because i don't like this at all.

Thanks,

ksburrus

Hello. First of all i will list all the fixes i tried to get that out of the way.

1: Complete new install of OS with fresh install of recent firefox, no add on's or extensions. 2: Complete uninstall of firefox including protected and hidden files and folders as well as registry entries. 3: Firefox reset or refresh. 4: Full virus and mal/spyware scans (none detected). 5: Effects Windows XP, 7, 8.x, and linux including Mint and ubuntu dists. 6: Tested on different computers. 7: worked in the about:config swipe settings (no fix). 8: Tested with and without any firewwall or AV. 9: Tested for same problems with MSIE, CHROME, OPERA, and several linux browsers, never had a problem. 10: Checked and updated adobe flash player, shockwave and java script, no fix.

The problem:

A: No matter if a direct link click, or open in new tab or new window. Firefox will not load the side or bottom page scroll bars, nor will it load the "file, edit, history, e.t.c." menu bar, no bookmarks bar, the backspace button is disabled, no back or forward arrow buttons.

B: The only thing that works is the up down arrows on the keyboard, not even the num pad pgup/dn keys work. My mouse scroll button down not work. I can move the mouse around as normal , however if i right mouse click on a blank part of the locked page i do get a pop up window with back-forward arrow keys, save, page info options , however the back-forward arrow keys are greyed out most of the time.

C: The SSL lock does not appear on the locked/stalled pages so that's a security problem.

D: I often have to right click on link then open in new tab or new window several times before firefox actually loads the page correctly.

In conclusion the only fix i could get was to go back to firefox v29.x and lock out auto update.

Hi,

  Ever since I upgraded to FF 38.0, whenever I try to open a link in a new window, (which I do all the time - not a tabs person ;) ) the right hand side scroll bar doesn't show, nor does the new window respond to the scroll wheel on my mouse.  If I open up another instance of FF, and copy/paste the URI from the window without the scroll bar, all is fine, but that's quickly becoming a real pain. I've tried starting FF in Safe Mode - no difference.  Tried uninstalling all of my extensions - still, no difference, and apparently my google-fu is failing me on this one.  Any thoughts, by chance?

Thanks,

Dylan

P.S. On Win 8.1 Pro 64.

When I'm browsing and I press command N (on a mac) and it pops up a new window, it has a tab at the top that I can combine with other tabs. When I click on a link within a website (like google drive from my google account for example), a new window pops up without a tab at the top (It's not just google). Everything else about the browser still works, but was there some sort of update that changed this? Has anybody else noticed this?

I installed Linux Mint 17.1 recently. It came with Firefox 33. When using it for the first time, I got a message saying Firefox was out of date. I updated to Firefox 38. Now the arrows on the ends of the scroll bar are missing. I use a small laptop when I travel. I don't use a mouse, as the mouse is very inconvenient in the passenger seat of the car. I need the scroll arrows back. It is the easiest way to scroll around the tiny laptop screen with the touchpad.

Please explain in English, not computerese (or even worse linux-ese), how to restore the scroll bar line-at-a-time arrow buttons that used to be on the top and bottom of the scroll bar. The help forums either jabber about opening files I don't know how to find and editing code that I don't have permissions to edit, or they talk about changing settings in older versions of Firefox that no longer have the menu options available. I step by step instructions that work.

I have laptops, desktops, and tablets. Tablets Use Android and are not a problem. The other machines run either Windows 7 (especially the ones at work) and 8.1 (personal laptops.) Different makes and models, some with wireless mice, some with USB connected mice, the former mostly Logitech and the latter Dell. For the purposes of the rest of this description, note that the touchpads on the laptops behave the same as the mice. In all these machines, after recent upgrades (Firefox for certain, but probably other things), about 50%-75% of windows open without scroll bars and do not scroll with the mouse wheel. I can navigate with the keyboard arrows and the links in the windows respond to mouse clicks. I assume the windows are opening in some script or platform (Java?) that is different from what is used in other pages I navigate to and through. In most cases they are opened from links on other pages, although I have come up with some that appeared after entering the URL, and the presence of a tool bar is inconsistent. Sometimes there, sometimes not. Most of the times I am paying attention, the standard one is not there (i.e. no scroll bar/slider or standard toolbar. Looks like a popup with URL and search window and the bookmark toolbar.)

I am guessing this is a Firefox thing because Chrome works, but whether it is the browser itself or its interaction with Java, some setting, or what-have-you I don't know. Suggestions?
