My Firefox browser has been acting sluggish recently. Opening more than one window (a normal Window & a private Window) somehow affects the browser's performance overall. And the problem worsens when using apps that don't require Internet access (e.g. Facebook Games Arcade BETA).

What can I do to fix the performance that does NOT involve resetting my Firefox browser? My Firefox version is 49.0.1. Any help would be nice here!

The listed solution for installing Outlook.live.com mailto hasn't worked for me on Firefox 49.0.1.

I get the appropriate response when installing the "string" via the Web Console and I've clicked on "Add Application" and selected "Use Outlook.com OWA to" as my default mail, but when I invoke "Email Link" to send an email, the "To:" field is not blank, but populated with a long string (attached). The body of the email is blank

I have two users set up on my PC. On only one of them, pages have begun "smearing" lines down the page after scrolling a few pages down. This smear continues, and then pictures/text load below it. When scrolling back up, the smear/lines are still there. This doesn't happen on the other user. I even created a third user, and it started happening there, but still not on the other user. I've updated Firefox on all three, and have gone through all the Tool/options settings and all are the same.

There is a similar question to this already posted, but I could not add to it until I posted a new question... The image I'm trying to add isn't loading. I'll try later.

Win 7 64 bit. Firefox 49.0.1

Num Lock key is ignored. This is very frustrating. I learnt to use a keyboard when that was all there was. In the last few months I'm just gettting to dislike this more and more. I have googled this and saw many suggestions that the caret browsing mode (what ever that is, Something a rabbit may enjoy?) can be toggled with the F7 key. Have tried this and it makes no difference with the Function Lock on or off. Have restarted in FireFox safe mode and the behaviour does not change.

Any clues appreciated before I reluctantly jump ship?

Cheers Norm

Hi, so I started learning to develop websites a while ago, and all was good. However, recently I've had an issue. When I make a change and I'd like to refresh the page, to see it how someone visiting for the first time would see it, the page reloads, however it's exactly the same. For example, I've got 2 buttons. When button 1 clicked, button 2 gets disabled. Refresh the page and... button 2 is still disabled. In other browsers, both buttons return to their "default state". Shift-clicking the reload button does in fact refresh the page as expected. But a normal click, even if the webpage was retrieved from cache, should at least refresh the page, right? I've tried refreshing firefox, so add-ons are not the issue, and this hasn't been an issue before, any help is appreciated.

Is there a way to prevent the text that appears under the search box when I open to the Firefox homepage? If not, since I've already fled Google because of the Doodles and may have to flee Firefox because of unwanted, in-my-face messages, is there a Browser out there that is clean (i.e. just search box and navigation tools) that I can turn to? Thank you.

Our entire office is having the same problem. Our BlueTie accounts are not working properly and Firefox says it is a certificate problem. Most of the program is functional but not IM. We have added site exceptions in Java and in FireFox. After this we still get the message below (see attached screen shot). We have to click this box daily in order to get functioning IM service. Please research this. Hopefully you can find a fix for us.

if playback doesn't begin shortly, try restarting your device - SOLVED

Win 10 pro, version 1607, os build 14393.321 Firefox 49.0.1

For the past few days some videos will not play in firefox, not on my laptop, my kindle fire and my galaxy 3 phone, and yet the videos work on any other browser (Chrome, Pale Moon, Edge) I have on my devices. It either says, "if playback doesn't begin shortly, try restarting your device" or the swirling circle just keeps on swirling to a black background.

I fix computers for a living and have done all of the standards: restarted my laptop, cleared cache/cookies, tested in safe mode, un/re-installed firefox, my drivers are the way they are supposed to be, ensured my plugins are all active and I had the latest versions of flash, java, and real player.

Then I went up a notch: installed a VLC add-on, disabled hardware acceleration and restarted ff, made sure my firewall and antivirus programs trust plugin-container.exe, and followed the instructions from here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-video-audio-problems-firefox-windows,

What gives? And why doesn't FireFox have a fix for this miserable problem?


SOLVED (for me): Installing YouTube Flash Player helped, but only for the youtube video part: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/youtube-flash-player/?src=ss

Going to about:config, and changing media.autoplay.enabled from false to true, then restarting FF, fixed the remainder of the video problem.

I used to be able to use chatstep with no problem. I am using Windows 10. Maybe 3 weeks ago or so suddenly, when I dropped an image into the chat, I got error code 713 image cannot be downloaded. I also cannot receive images from others. I used Windows Edge and I was able to download an image without an error. Therefore, it must be firefox. I also turned off my antivirus and firewall and nothing changed. I tried changing most settings on the page information and that also did not help.

Any ideas?
