I have a mid 2012 MBP with Retina display. When I try to install Firefox upgrades i Get the message that teh update will not be installed, are you running more than 1 copy of Firefox. This occurs no matter what I try even from a restart. Activity monitor only shows one copy of Firefox running

I reset Firefox to the default and that did not help, I started in safe mode and that did not help.

The address bar used to show a line between search / auto-complete results. Now the line is gone and it's very hard to see the grouping of description and URL and find what I'm looking for, they all blend together. I want the line back! I really wish FF wouldn't make these changes - make them available as an option, not forced.

hi, i updated firefox today to 16.0.1 and the forward and back buttons are always greyed out, it doesn't matter how many times i navigate to a new page, they never become active. also, the open in new window right click option does not work either, it will open a new window without the url of the link i clicked on and just displays a blank page. it seems that open in new tab is still usually functional though.

i am on a macbook pro running mac osx 10.8.2 and i also tried upgrading to the firefox 17 beta to see if that would fix it and it did not resolve any of the problems.

please help!

I'm running Firefox 16.0.2 on Mac OS X 10.8.2.

"About Firefox" reports that I'm on the "release"update channel.

The User-Agent string is "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.8; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0"

Why does the User-Agent string not say "16.0.2" instead of "16.0"? I know that if I follow a different update channel (like aurora, etc.), I'll get a shortened version-number in my UA string, but since I'm on the "release" update channel, I figured that when I got 16.0.2 the UA string would say "16.0.2".

Note that I've never tried to forge my UA string nor do I have any plug-ins that I can imagine would mutate the UA string.

I do not know anything about technical jargon or anything about add-ons or plug-ins, I just know that typically if I open a PDF file from a website it opens just fine in the browser. However, I am unable to open PDFs inside of Adobe Reader. When I do, the error message reads as follows:

"Adobe Reader cannot show documents in this browser. We are sorry, but Adobe Reader is unable to show documents in this browser configuration. Please use your browser to download this file and open it in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat. To avoid this message in the future, many browsers provide a way to turn off certain add-ons, and some are able to show this document natively. Please contact your browser vendor for more details."

I have no idea how to fix this, as Adobe Reader is installed and I assume it is installed correctly? Please, any help would be fantastic.

I receive a message box asking if I would like to update Firefox. I click on yes and it goes to the download box with the long horizontal download bar with blue and white moving lines. That never changes...it simply stays with this box, the download bar never changes and it doesn't matter how long I wait for it to complete install it never occurs. The update box appears randomly in time, but it is quite often.

I'm trying to use the new min-resolution dppx media query support in Firefox 16 to work with my retina MacBook Pro, however when targetting the dppx with min-resolution it's not being supported by the browser. Is this actually correctly supported by Firefox now, or is it still outstanding?

Test case is here - I've set it to 1dppx, so as far as I understand the text should be red on any screen (not just a retina one): http://mjw.in/firefox/test1.html

When I try to download a file, everything at first appears to function properly. I get the option to specfic the download location, for example. It does not matter if I accept the default location (downloads), or if I specify a custom location (for example, my Desktop). Once I initiate the download there is a brief animated sequence showing a file icon going somewhere. Once that's done, however, I find there has been no download accomplished. The file is not in the specfied location, and a searching the computer does not show that it went anywhere else either. I have no difficulties downloading files with Safari. I would prefer to use Firefox.

I am set up to use a default layout of four tiles in Firefox 16.0.2 (OSX 10.8.2) so that I can look at four separate web pages at once. This is really handy; however, it does not work consistently. Sometimes when I open a link, the link opens within the tile, which is what I prefer. Then I just use the "home" function or the "back" function to get back to the original tile. On the other hand, sometimes opening a link spawns another complete four-tile layout.....and another link within one of those tiles might spawn yet another 4-tile layout. Can I configure Firefox so that links only open within the tile? If so I can't figure out how.

Also.......saving the 4-tile layout does not seem to remember the four separate four links. If I have to reload my saved layout I simply get 4 tiles of the home page.

If I can't, then my suggestion is that Firefox be "improved" to do that because having multiple 4-tile screens gets messy real quick.

so I noticed lately (the past ~5 weeks) that Firefox runs REALLY REALLY slow. I usually have 3 windows open all the time (one with about 7-8 tabs and the other two with 5-6 tabs, total of 20, maybe 25 tabs at some point but ends up going back to about 20 tabs at the end of the day)

it was fine for the past 2 years never had a problem. usually it takes about a week (or longer sometimes) before I need to restart my laptop to clear up some memory. but now I cant do it at all. as soon as I open firefox I will notice my laptop gets slower and slower and the fans comes on and laptop gets hot fast. CPU usage for firefox is high same with Ram.

here is what I did to try and solve the problem. I first updates all the add ons, didnt do anything. cleared the cash,,, nothing. disabled the add-ons. it helped but still wasn't fast enough. so I reset firefox and had all the add ons removed. still same thing. I deletet firefox and reinstalled it... still same problem. to confirm that my laptop is good enough to run those many tabs I downloaded google chrome to test it and I had three windows with a total of like 34 tabs (yes 34) and it was running fine. actually I think from now on I will be using chrome and not even go back to firefox due to how fast it was!! and its using 30% less of the memory too!!


I have been using Firefox since 08 and it was the best browser I have ever used and never looked at any other one. but I downloaded chrome to check and see if my laptop was the problem but now I know its the browser. I noticed that this problem only started when this update came on few weeks ago (not sure which one because in the past 5-6 weeks I kept getting those updates. I think I did at least 3 updates if not even more) but I am sure it was one of the 15.X updates. now I am running the latest update which seems like its even worse.

any help would be appreciate it. I am still trying to make this browser work but if this problem keeps going on then I guess I have no choice but to move on to a different one. I miss some of the features that firefox have over chrome.

I have a mid 2010 macbook pro. OS X 10.8.2, 320GB (with has about 72GB of free space), 8GB ram, 2.66GHz intel core 2 duo, running latest updates on everything and running Lion with the latest update too.

tried to search but kept geting those old thread and its locked now so cant post in it.

Thanks
