Hi. I made a dumb mistake and installed an add-on or extension (not sure which) that I was hoping would allow me to view YouTube videos in full-screen. Unfortunately I can't recall the name of the add-on/extension.

The problem is, now every time I open Firefox it opens in "full screen" and NOTHING (including F11) will allow me to access the taskbar, the address bar, or any of the other Firefox controls. I can't do anything at all but view the home page in full-screen! The only option I have is to hit control-alt-delete and close Firefox.

I tried uninstalling and re-installing Firefox and this didn't solve the problem. Please help. Thank you!

P.S. I'm writing this in Internet Explorer since I currently can't use Firefox.

I've been having a great deal of trouble with Firefox lately on my MS Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10. It began with my passwords not automatically filling in. I tick the check box and next time I start Firefox, it's unchecked. I tried all of the troubleshooting ideas I could find here and none of them worked. I tried refreshing. I tried safe mode. I even uninstalled Firefox and deleted the Mozilla folder in %appdata%. Reinstalling a fresh version of Firefox with no add-ons, no extensions and sync turned off still didn't fix the problem. To add to my woes, today I am unable to search from the Firefox start page. When I type a search term, the progress indicator just swirls away and nothing happens. The same goes if I type the search in the address bar or the search box in the new tab page. If I open up a Google page, the search works fine. There's obviously something on my system that is interfering with Firefox, but for the life of me, I don't know what it is. The only thing that comes to mind is my antivirus, Trend Micro, but disabling it didn't help. The issue with the passwords started a little over a week ago (at least, that's when I noticed it) and I only noticed the search problem today.

Using Firefox version 38.0.1. On an iMac OS 10.10.3, I have installed the plugin for integrating Firefox with Apple's keychain. But can't get Firefox to ask me to save passwords. I've set a master password for firefox but still doesn't work even after restarting Firefox.

It would be great if it worked as I'm sure it will, if I just push the right button. Which is? Thanks

I am running Firefox on Linux Mint 13 Maya. For some reason many of the buttons in Firefox (not on webpages but in FireFox itself) do not respond to mouse clicks. I have tried Safemode, refresh/restore and uninstall/reboot/reinstall. Still the same problem. I have a hard time accessing settings because the menu button is one of those that "depresses" but does not respond to any mouse clicks. Also I can not activate or deactivate plugins because of the same problem.

I've been through all the forums I can find, and tried everything suggested, but I still can't get FireFox to open to about:blank. I've gone through the about:config, and changed the start page repeatedly under the Options section, and removed a user.js file, but it's a no-go. Every time I start FF I get the FF start page. Spybot and MalwareBytes report no problems. I'm at a total loss why this is happening.

When I zoom in on a web page to get it to a comfortably viewable size, the zoom holds as long as Firefox is running. But if I shut Firefox down and then restart it, the zoom has reset to the default condition. It holds the zoom settings fine in Windows 8.1. Don't know whether this is a Windows 10 fault or a situation Firefox will have to deal with when the released version of new Windows starts getting installed on the 29th.

It seems to me that every time Firefox updates the browser, there is some kind of design thing that pisses off a bunch of people, myself included. You seem to have a sizable part of your fan base that has spent all the time they want to spend on getting the controls, the gui experience just right. We are told that nobody forces us to use the new browser and here is the link to the now unsecure version. I would like to suggest whenever you have an update that is required to fix a security flaw, include a ticker option to include any new skins that might be involved. You surely do not have to change the layout to something that folks are possibly going to hate just to fix a security flaw. Let us make the decision on whether we want to try out a new design. If some of us want to try the new design we should be able to click yes, I'll try it. If we don't like it we can go back and download the new version again and not click yes this time. Firefox has been my browser of choice for years now due to the fact of options, options, options. Completely customizable to a larger base of people, but when you force a design change on people that is more properly called a skin, you lose and we do too.

Firefox now has the customizable search engine bar. I would like to use Google and have no other search engines as options since this is the only one I really use. However, every time I set it to Google, it changes back to Yahoo within a couple searches. This happens even when I delete Yahoo from the options. Any ideas? In addition, certain websites and links are getting routed to the Yahoo error handler site, even when I search with Google. Seems to happen with only some sites. I know the sites aren't down, perhaps a bug? I am a real novice at computers, so simple, non-technical language would help me best. Hope I have provided enough information. Thanks.

Latest version of Firefox (for PC) does not handle search results from Ancestry properly. It should remember whether I want results ordered by Category or Result, but doesn't. It always defaults to Category. It should also remember that I want 50 results per page, but always defaults to 20. If I change it to 50, it reverts the order back from Record to Category. If I ask for the 2nd page of results (ie records 21 to 40), I just get the first page again. This is NOT an Ancestry problem - it works fine on IE (as it used to on Firefox). Ancestry research on Firefox is fast becoming impossible. Until it is fixed, I will have to use IE or Chrome for my Ancestry research.

Why can't I contact You with ACTUAL FEEDBACK? Why does Firefox Vers 28 allow me to download complete webpage files but Vers 30 does not? Plugins, Addons, Internet Security are all the same on both systems. I can download the files in IE but not Firefox. What gives? I use NoScript, Better Privacy, Ghostery, and Kaspersky Internet Security configured the same on both systems. The only reason I checked is because on certain sites, I can't download files and the view completely. Firefox Vers 30 will download but not create a complete html link in the directory so that I can open and view the file.
