After the last one or two updates, the text size in my bookmarks toolbar, my search bar, and the tabs have all from a size 10 or 12 down to a size 6 or 8. This makes them very hard to read. I have gone through all of the menus and can't find a way to change them back to normal - even a small increase would help. Right now the text is small enough to allow 13 bookmarks in the bar. I used to have seven. All bookmarks do work, but it's a matter of have to almost crawl into the screen to read them. I also tried the refresh with no help. I have the latest update, 49.0., using Win 10 with the newest updates.

Can't find a simple solution to preventing Firefox 49 from creating duplicate bookmarks everytime I add a bookmark.

At least since updating to v.49, whenever I add a bookmark to a folder or sub-folder, I get a duplicate in unsorted bookmarks. The duplicate entry cannot be deleted (delete option is grayed out). Deleting the entry in the folder/sub-folder deletes both entries. Recreating the bookmark in the folder/sub-folder just recreates the duplicates.

Solutions on Mozilla support involve deleting control files, modifying the registry, removing firefox, re-installing, etc. l-- sorry going through something like that is not why I have a firefox browser. Is there a simple solution to this problem? Is the firefox community working on preventing these duplicates in future releases? Is there at least a workaround?

BTW: I don't think this is a Sync problem. The machine I sync with is powered down 90% of the time.

When I get your typical "save" or "open" file dialogue, Firefox ALWAYS downloads no matter choice. Have already runned Firefox in Safe Mode to rule out any Add-On issues. This is starting to get very annoying, used to love opening PDF's in the built-in PDF-Viewer.

I have shortcuts for 6 websites "saved" in my taskbar as I visit these websites very often (please see 1st screen shot). Ever since the last Mozilla update, I get a message saying "File Download - Security Warning" (please see screen shot with warning message). If I click on "Open" in the warning box, it takes me to the website, however, it's quite annoying to have to click "Open" every time. I tried re-saving the shortcuts to my taskbar with no success. I also copied the shortcuts from my taskbar and pasted them on my desktop. When I click on the copy/pasted shortcut on my desktop, I am taken directly to the website with no security warning. I have not changed any security settings before/after the last Mozilla update. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to keep my website shortcuts in my taskbar without receiving the security warning message. Thanks!

Win 7 64 bit. Firefox 49.0.1

Num Lock key is ignored. This is very frustrating. I learnt to use a keyboard when that was all there was. In the last few months I'm just gettting to dislike this more and more. I have googled this and saw many suggestions that the caret browsing mode (what ever that is, Something a rabbit may enjoy?) can be toggled with the F7 key. Have tried this and it makes no difference with the Function Lock on or off. Have restarted in FireFox safe mode and the behaviour does not change.

Any clues appreciated before I reluctantly jump ship?

Hi, so I started learning to develop websites a while ago, and all was good. However, recently I've had an issue. When I make a change and I'd like to refresh the page, to see it how someone visiting for the first time would see it, the page reloads, however it's exactly the same. For example, I've got 2 buttons. When button 1 clicked, button 2 gets disabled. Refresh the page and... button 2 is still disabled. In other browsers, both buttons return to their "default state". Shift-clicking the reload button does in fact refresh the page as expected. But a normal click, even if the webpage was retrieved from cache, should at least refresh the page, right? I've tried refreshing firefox, so add-ons are not the issue, and this hasn't been an issue before, any help is appreciated.

Every time I visit Ebay site, when using Firefox (at Ebay), I continue to randomly be prompted to download a file titled "firefox-patch.js" despite NEVER asking or clicking on anything to prompt this, simply loading Ebay at an random given time, and also a fake Firefox page (which looks very authentic) is automatically opening a new tab in my browser, circumventing my popup blocker and security software. I have confirmed with Mozilla/Firefox and reported the issue to Norton Small Business, as this continues to be a problem In reaching out to Mozilla support, I am informed that this and others are surely fake, and pose a threat to security - such as Trojans, worms and other malware which seems only to happen when at Ebay. I have confirmed, these threats (which have been confirmed as fake and security risks) with Mozilla and have had Symantec perform several scans and investigate that this has not actually successfully infiltrated my systems, however every time I visit ebay, these or similar attacks are occurring; and per Mozilla support they are receiving several reports every day regarding these attempted attacks.

The last two potential threats that nearly have circumvented my security (fortunately, I have been cautious after noticing that they were suspicious due to the URLS) are from the following:

Threat Source URL or Spoofed URL: https://kahdacitylinkexpress.org Incident URL: https://kahdacitylinkexpress.org/2571196760355/7b393ecf118dc15d4f6e925feea6ab53/13f5cda28c1df11a7536ab141ede954.htm

EBAY MUST ADDRESS THIS MATTER AS IT IS CAUSING ALARM AND OUR COMPANY NOW QUESTIONS WHETHER OR NOT EBAY IS A SAFE MARKETPLACE AS THUS FAR, THIS IS ONLY OCCURRING WHILE AT EBAY!

Please, we respectfully request that your security department attempt to stop these attacks, as it has been happening fairly regularly, despite the attacks appearing to being somewhat random. The only certainty we have experienced is: IT SEEMS IT IS ONLY OCCURRING WHILE ON EBAY! We have reported this issue to Mozilla, Norton/Symantec (NSB) and Ebay.

We kindly ask that this matter be investigated, and please note, we have reported this to Mozilla and to Symantec to help warn customers of a potentially serious risk.
