After upgrading to 10.0.2 my browser has become very unresponsive while loading pages/opening blank tabs. I've already tried safe mode with all plugins deactivated and a full reinstall. My plugins are up to date, I do not use custom themes and it doesn't matter what kind of page I'm loading. Seems like its the engine itself. Running a Win7 x64 notebook - I did not have this issues before the latest update.

Occasionally, when I try to do a Google search, numerous "opening search" pop-up windows appear. I cannot continue typing in my search until I've closed all of these pop-up windows. How do I stop them from EVER popping up again?!

They are small pop-up windows. When I start entering in keywords to search, ever so often, these things pop-up and not just one. Many of them. Popping one upon another upon another upon another. I cannot enter anything new into the Google search box until I have closed all of these windows. And, commonly, numerous ones of them will pop up again when I enter in the next letter in my search.

This is what it says in the pop-up box:

Along the top it says in the light blue margin "Opening search"

Under the above and in a white box it says:

"You have chosen to open

[a Windows symbol] search

    which is a: application/json
    from: https//www.google.com

Then on the outline of an inner box, it reads "What should Firefox do with this file?" and it gives the following options:

    Open with ["Browse" button]
    DownThemAll!
    Save File [This one is checked as the default]

Then a check-off box with the text next to it: "Do this automatically for files like this from now on.

Under that is an "OK" button that is gray and cannot be checked and a "Cancel" button that can be. I have never done either but used the "X" in the upper right corner of the box to close out this window.

Now I see I have limited options for "This happened" for frequency. It isn't every time Firefox is opened but it is FAR more frequent than "A few times a week". More like several times a day.

Chrome is OK This took forever to type -- it's like FF works for 10 seconds then hangs for 10 sec, and after every click. Sometimes fills in what I typed when it's hung up, but not always and not very much.

Firefox works fine for a few minutes and then just stops reloading och opening new tabs. My other browsers work just fine and have a good internet connection. When I then try to restart firefox it still shows that the process is open in the background and won't restart. So, I guess it is some sort of crash.

I had to update Firefox manually from 21.0 to 25.0, since it told me it was up to date. probably an issue with all versions being x86-64 Linux versions, and not i386 versions.

I also updated to the newest x86-64 Linux Flashplayer (V11.2.202.310 from 2013-08-20) and put the libflashplayer.so in its usual place on a Linux x86-64 system: /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

But FFx and sites like youtube insist I have no flashplayer installed...

Addons/Plugins tells me I have no plugins of that kind installed. Youtube tells me "Flash player is required for video playback".

Where is the error? The user can access the file in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so, and its the right version as well:

  1. file /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, stripped

I get sometimes black images when I open an image on Facebook and other sites. It happens often when I have more tabs open. I tried the following solutions but it did not help at all:

-clean cash -make sure that site permissions do not block images. -no antivirus is interfering with the browser -running Firefox in "safe mode" with all add-ons disabled -reinstalling Firefox

This does not happen with other browsers. So it seems to me that it is a bug in Firefox. I am using Firefox 10 with Windows XP SP3.

Any ideas?

Thank you Mido

On Amazon, the Javascript-driven (?) buttons for Amazon's Look Inside! feature no longer work after upgrading to Firefox 10. The previous version 9 did work with the Amazon feature.

Amazon's Look Inside! feature permits a prospective customer to sample multiple pages of a book before buying. Very often, this feature spares the customer wasted time and money with a book whose promotion looks promising, but whose pages turn out disappointing.

In addition to dysfunctional "Look Inside!" buttons, I have found I cannot move a selection already placed in my cart into "Save for Later". The button is unresponsive.

I have complained to Amazon about keeping up-to-date with Firefox, due to the security issue of letting browser page compatibility fall behind the current browser standard. Of course, Amazon does not usually answer the complaint, perhaps reasoning that this is merely a customer issue.

In any case, check out the failure of Firefox 10 to work with Amazon pages. I have reviewed my own Javascript and cookies configuration already, and my Firefox 10 is as wide-open as can be-- I do not even clear cookies or history after a session.
