Why is Firefox suddenly extremely slow or altogether unresponsive in a way that seems to be affecting the speed of other programs on my Macbook as well?

Sometime between 7 and 8 pm EST on 7/7/11, Firefox went from speedy to an absolute standstill. After trying to force-quit, the entire Mac froze. I turned it off and it … (read more)

Sometime between 7 and 8 pm EST on 7/7/11, Firefox went from speedy to an absolute standstill. After trying to force-quit, the entire Mac froze. I turned it off and it would not reboot (not clear the gray apple screen with the clockwise light pattern). Left it shut-down for the entire night and it started up again properly this morning, but there are still problems with Firefox. When I run it, it lags very slowly for a maybe a minute, then quits responding. I tried twice to clear caches and this only prompted more non-response.

Hello,

When I want to listen to a radio (.mp3) using firefox under linux fedora, it doesn't work. So I have downloaded mplayerplug-in but it still does not work. In fact, when I click to the mp3 link, it seems that it tries to open it with jw player. The problem is I can't manage to tell firefox to change the software tool it uses for opening this file. I know it sounds stupid but I have looked at a lot of place but it has been successless. Anybody could help me? Cheers.

I have keyword.URL set to http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&btnI=I'm%20Feeling%20Lucky&q=

However, when I type 'foo' into my address bar, it tries to take me to http://foo/ instead of executing a google search for foo and taking me to the first hit, which is what I was expecting. I end up seeing a message from my ISP that the site does not exist. Anyone know how to fix this? Google only seems to turn up advice on changing keyword.url, with nothing on forcing firefox to obey keyword.url.

It never use to have that prompt, but now it is every time. I push ok and everything is okay again, time next time. How can I fix this?

I am running ver. 11 of Firefox but Gmail keeps saying I am running ver. 3.6. I have disabled EVERYTHING but I still keep getting "Some important features may not work in this version of your browser, so you have been redirected to the Basic HTML version. Upgrade to a modern browser, such as Google Chrome." AFAIC, 3.6 IS a modern browser. Are they doing this just to get me to use Chrome? I am running Windows XP SP3

At first I did a simple update; downloaded the new version and installed. After doing that several times and still getting messages when visiting sites (including Firefox) that I need to install a newer version, I tried quitting Firefox, removing it from the dock, trashing it and reinstalling from the download to the newest version, 8.0.1 for Mac OS X. I'm still getting this: "Hey there! Looks like you’re using an old version of Firefox." and this: "The browser that you are using is not supported by AT&T's website. You may continue to explore the site, but many features and layout elements may not work or display properly.

Currently supported browsers:

   Firefox v4.0 and above
   Safari v4.0 and above
   Chrome v7.0 and above
   Internet Explorer v7.0 and above"

etc....

Obviously I'm way past v4.0 if I'm installing 8.0.1. So, what's the deal?

My bookmarks have not worked in over a month I'm not sure if it was after upgrading or if something else caused this. I'm currently running ver. 15.0.1 on my desktop & laptop & am only having the problem on my desktop. I've tried deleting & re-importing my bookmarks but they still don't work. They display fine but do nothing when I click on them.
