Just updated to Firefox 23... now I cannot see.......

Hi .... I just updated to Firefox 23 on my black macbook running 10.6.8 Snow leopard...... and now when I open the Firefox preferences window I cannot see the very bottom part of the window....and there is no green dot in upper left corner to enlarge the window to possibly see the bottom portion with last setting options...only the red dot to close window or yellow to hide in dock is present...where the green dot to expand window is it's just a blank un-colored dot??.....the window shows only about 1/8 or 1/4 or less of for instance under privacy tab the "location" settings at bottom of window....same thing with other setting tabs ...the window does show the complete purple question mark in left lower corner, but not the complete last preference options at the very bottom... why is this I cannot expand the window to see everything???? !
I hope someone can help please!!!!......thanks, Steve
black macbook SL 10.6.8

Hi, thanks to both of you for reply and attempted help, I tried both suggestions as good as I could a few times but no luck fixing issue.... ,also I was told from another person and I did not know that the green expand button for pref window in v23 FF was not supposed to be there and to work as usual to expand the window....is this true??? ...... maybe yes because I tried moving the window around screen and does not move up and around so that would not fix prob either.....I've tried starting in safe mode and removed plist and trashed it as you said and did what what both you said to try above a few times and no luck, still the same.......
'''Maybe I should trash Firefox 23 and all the other older FF apps still on my HD then do a clean install?.... (but leave the apps in trash until I get this resolved??) I noticed when I first tried to install v23 FF last night (I updated from 3.6.? or something...I have not used FF in a long time as you can see!) it downloaded FF v22 first.... then it auto updated to v23???? weird it did that...is it normal?? ....then I dumped the v22 into my trash but did not empty it yet.....I'm still a Mac dummy still after 10+ yrs using them unfortunately....so complex answers kind of go over my head and also reading complex web links do too.... so all suggestions should be written for a Mac dummy like me....hopefully some more simple step by step instructions would be appreciated if possible....
I have quite a few brain farts at my semi-advanced age....to much screwing around during the 60's-early 70's if you know what I mean :-D had a good time living in So. Cal growing up.... but my two or three brain cells that are left are a bit of grey matter now!!! try to forgive my slow and simple mind.....
here's a screen shot of what problem looks like
Regards, Steve

  • I just upgraded itunes. And now I cannot see my iPads or iPod in the left margin of itunes? But I can still see them in my Windows Explorer?

    I just upgraded itunes. And now I cannot see my iPads or iPod in the left margin of itunes? But I can still see them in my Windows Explorer?

    Hey there MattSK123,
    Thank you for your question. It sounds like you are unable to see either of your devices in the sidebar of iTunes after a recent update. A number of issues could cause this type of behaviour, and would recommend starting with the troubleshooting from the article named:
    iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts1538
    If the issue is not resolved, I would next re install iTunes from either of the following articles depending on the version of Windows you have:
    Removing and reinstalling iTunes and other software components for Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1923
    Or
    Removing and Reinstalling iTunes and other software components for Windows XP
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1925
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    Take care,
    Sterling

  • TS2529 just updated my iphone 4; now I cannot sync with my music on my mac nor download music from itunes. all other items: photos, calendar, email syncs; not music. how do i get music on my iPhone?

    I just updated my iPhone 4. I now cannot synch with music on my iMac nor can I download from iTunes. All other syncing activity works: calendars, email, ibooks and contacts are all automatically updated across all devices. Not music.
    How do I get music to download and sync?

    Plug your phone into itunes.
    Click the iphone there, and go to the music tab.
    Is the Sync Music tab checked off? And is the entire music library selected?

  • Just updated to Firefox 29, now I have this thing at the top that says "Google Sharing Disabled." What is that?

    When I click on it, it says "Google Sharing Enabled." What does this mean? Can I leave it disabled but get rid of that button/bar? There's no real trouble. I'm just curious about this, and also it's a little annoying.

    This sounds like a problem with the GoogleSharing extension that shows in the System Details List.

  • I just updated my Firefox, and now whenever I use Youtube, I only see black screens where the video should be, but I can still hear the sounds; what gives?

    The Youtube pages load as normal, but as stated above, the player contains only a black screen, and the progress bar moves as usual when playing the clip, but I can only hear, and not see, the actual video.

    Thanks so much for your reply fanboy20. 
    Yes, just made sure of that.  I do have the latest version of Flash player.  But I have just staggered upon the answer.  Chalk it up to being a newbi.  I was not putting my apple tv to sleep and it would not allow me to see
    you tube on my computer while it was still operating on my TV.  When I realized that, I put the apple tv to sleep and bingo, my computer runs you tube fine.   Thanks again for your response.

  • Just updated to Maverick and now I cannot open any of my applications on my Airbook.  It shows the program running but no windows appear on the screen.  Help!!!

    Any ideas as to why the applications do not open in a window?

    Is an external display connected and turned off? If not, open Mission Control. Do you see the window(s) in any other spaces?

  • Just updated to firefox 3.6.8 and now my laptop's hard drive failed after subsequent firefox crashes.

    I just updated to firefox 3.6.8 this morning after getting prompted to update as I started firefox. The firefox update successfully installed page said that I should update to the latest adobe flashplayer, so I did that as well, although that installation failed for whatever reason. I figured that I would update it later. I started watching live streaming videos on a website, and it was working for awhile, but firefox started to not respond. I tried opening up task manager, but even that started to lag and took minutes to open. The problem seemed resolved for awhile, but firefox started to not respond off and on, task manager stopped responding completely, explorer crashed, and my computer blue screened. It wouldn't even get off the blue screen after minutes of waiting, so I shut my laptop down manually. I'm positive that this couldn't have been a virus, since I only visited my usual websites, and I have both adblock plus and noscript installed. As for my laptop now, it won't boot to windows vista. I tried the hard drive test and failed. Now my laptop isn't even able to turn off no matter how long I hold down the power button. It's not an old laptop, so I doubt that it was just time for it to die.
    I have always been a fan of firefox, but this is just horrible. I don't know if it was firefox's fault but it sure seems like it...
    I'm currently on my older laptop, since my other one is obviously dead now. My broken one had vista installed and again, firefox 3.6.8 version.

    I have the same problem. I have never had a problem with Firefox before, and use it as my main browser. However recently, after updating to 3.6.8, its been crashing all the time. Up to 20 times an hour. Usually it occurs when I click a link from a Google search, or in Yahoo. Even if I send in a crash report and restart Firefox, it crashes as soon as the same page is brought back up, or the same link is clicked. I have also had it crash when completely idle. Its very frustrating as it is my favorite browser. I've resorted to using Google Chrome for the time being.

  • I just updated my Firefox version to 3.6, but I can't find any detials in My Bookmarks now? Where are they?

    I just updated my Firefox version to 3.6, but I can't find any detials in My Bookmarks now? They are not in the Favorites folder which is in the local drive either.

    1. The version of Firefox that you posted here with looks like Firefox 2.0, based on the UserAgent string this forum read from the browser being used. Is that what you updated from? <br />
    ''See this to fix your UserAgent string - https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Websites+or+add-ons+incorrectly+report+incompatible+browser ''
    2. If you ever used a Firefox 3.0+ version in the last three years and then went back to the Firefox 2.0 version, the 3.6 version you now have is using your old bookmarks file from when you previously had a Firefox 3.0+ version in use.
    3. Firefox doesn't use the IE Favorites folder for storing bookmarks. Firefox bookmarks are stored in the Profile folder, in the file format appropriate to the version of Firefox being used. Firefox 2.0.0.x and earlier versions, it was the '''bookmarks.html''' file and in Firefox 3.0 and newer version, it is the '''places.sqlite''' file.
    4. What do you want to do as far as bookmarks go? <br />
    Import your IE Favorites into Firefox 3.6? <br />
    Or, restore the bookmarks that you were recently using in Firefox 2.0?

  • I have just updated my iPad and now cannot access any apps as they just close down straight away. Any ideas why and how to solve?

    I have just updated my iPad and now cannot access any apps as they just close down straight away. Any ideas why and how to solve?

    Have you tried a reset ? Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.
    I've also seen it suggested that people try downloading a free app from the store onto the iPad (as that seems to reset something), and then re-try the apps - the free app can then be deleted.

    I just uninstalled it and am waiting for it to reinstall. I sincerely hope that I have not lost everything that I worked on so hard. Now that mobile me is gone, I have not been able to go between devices to transfer things. I was merely trying to take a document I had worked on and open it in pages, but it said my version was too old. When I updated, it wouldn't load. Now I cannot do anything. I hope that the reinstall fixes it without losing everything. Please advise!!! Yes, I am in panic mode.

  • I just updated my itunes and now I am unable to open any of my songs... please help me.

    i just updated my itunes and now I am unable to open any of my songs... please help me. Every time i click it, it says it cannot be read because it was made by a newer version of itunes.

    Try resetting the Nano with it still connected to a high powered USB 2.0 port on your PC. To reset the iPod, press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.

  • Just upgraded to Mavericks. Now I cannot access scans from my hp scanner. After it complete the scans and I try to save as tiff, jpeg or pdf I get a either a grey blur or a message that says cannot save because the file cannot be written to.

    Just upgraded to Mavericks. Now I cannot access scans from my hp scanner. After it complete the scans and I try to save as tiff, jpeg or pdf I get a either a grey blur or a message that says cannot save because the file cannot be written to. I did not have any problems before the upgrade. I would greatly appreciate any light shed on this.

    Go to the HP site and look for drivers for your scanner. It apparently needs an updated driver to work with Mavericks.

  • Just Updated to Firefox 26.0...Hanging Worse Than Ever.

    I just updated to FireFox 26.0 a few hours ago, and now when I visit a site like Wonkette.com, the browser hangs are worse than ever before...and they were bad before. My browser is hanging (becomes completely unresponsive) minutes at a time before it either loads the page, or tries to load it and I get a script error (which takes more minutes to pop up while the browser's unresponsive) before it loads.
    God help you if you go anywhere with an IntenseDatabase commenting system or any kind of embedded video player. I have on no add-ons or plug-ins, so it is not that (and they are all up-to-date, anyway, but that's irrelevant).
    No, this is not something solved by going into Safe Mode - the seeming catch-all cure that never works, either - so don't even offer that up as a solution. Thanks.

    Hello,
    The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. <br>
    '''Note''': ''This will cause you to lose any Extensions and some Preferences.''
    *Open websites will not be saved in Firefox versions lower than 25.
    To Reset Firefox do the following:
    #Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
    #Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
    #Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
    #Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.
    Further information can be found in the [[Reset Firefox – easily fix most problems]] article.
    Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!
    Thank you.
