I have dealt with this for years. I have "reset" Firefox numerous times, I have uninstalled Adobe Flash and reinstalled version 16.0.0.235. After I uninstalled and updated it ran for a while but I am back to the "Flash is busy" message. The only way I can go on is to stop the plug in, or disable it, but of course then I have no video. I installed "Videowithoutflash" (I think that was the name of it listed with Firefox extension and highly reviewed, and it all ran fine for about a day. But then the next day no videos would play unless I enabled flash, and then it soon starts crashing again. This is a problem for years now. I have been through many forums trying to find an answer, nothing works, or if it does not for long. Is there not some way to get rid of Adobe Flash and play videos? Are there any browsers that don't use flash for viewing videos? Help! Thanks in advance Bill

Hello I recently downloaded the latest version of Firefox 54 for Linux. Everything worked great however even after making it the default browser links from external programs such as Pidgin won't open in a new tab in firefox. Instead a new window will pop-up with my home page. I've tried solving it by uninstalling the other version of firefox I downloaded from the repository (Firefox 45)

I fear it might be because I didn't really install it, instead I just ran the file directly form the download labed just firefox. It seems to be working fine and there was no README file so I assumed that was the way it should've been done.

Firefox as default browser (regular solution doesn't work)

Hello,

I've tried to make Firefox (version 43.0.1) my default browser on Windows10 (version 1511 Build 150586.36), but the "default apps" page in the control centre doesn't give me any options beside Microsoft Edge and looking for an app in the store. Searching the store does not yield any results for Firefox either.

I have been using Windows 10 for some months now, and always had Firefox as the default; however, since an update about a week ago, the option simply vanished.

FIrefox works fine otherwise, but opening links from mails or documents automatically uses Edge without giving me any other option.

Thanks for any help, and happy holidays.

I have been running Firefox for a number of years but uninstalled the programme last week as there seemed to be some problems with the system. I then tried to down load the current version. Every time I press the green download tab on the Firefox page a small pop up box at the bottom of the page asks if I want to save the file and when I say yes it then tries to download but then advises that the file can't be downloaded. This has happened about twelve times over the last three days. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium and am having to use Internet Explorer to access the Fire Fox Web Page

I've had a lot of crashes, some just firefox, some the whole computer. In process of migrating to new machine so wasn't overly concerned. But after a restart today, I found I could not get firefox to open at all. After finding the system searching for firefox.com, I checked program files\mozilla firefox and firefox.exe is not there. A search showed it not to be anywhere. Not ready to stop using this machine just yet. Any way to get firefox.exe reloaded without losing all my related stuff??

Firefox will not load. I installed Kaspersky Internet Security and everything was working fine until it wasn't. I then uninstalled Kaspersky, but Firefox would still not load.

Since I love Firefox I restored my computer to a previous state and that fixed everything, so then I installed a different Kaspersky product and everything was perfect. Now the problem is back again.

I don't know if the problem is on Kaspersky side or Firefox, but I would prefer not to restore again and I have no more troubleshooting ideas.

Firefox starts in Windows safe mode. When I double click on the Firefox icon the mouse indicates FF is loading, but then it doesn't start. Chrome starts fine. Contacted Kaspersky, but their first troubleshooting tip did not work. Under Event viewer I can see crash details for Firefox, but I can't interpret them and I don't know if they are related to FF not loading.

I'm okay with unintelligible Firefox and then reinstalling, but I do not want to lose my bookmarks, themes, add-ons, etc.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

I was having trouble with AOL and clicked the AOL specific update for Firefox. Now I have the AOL version of Firefox. I do not want this version of Firefox but I don't know how to restore the previous version without losing all of my stored data, i.e. bookmarks. My biggest problem with this version is that every time I open a new tab the AOL homepage appears. I have changed my default homepage back to google but AOL still opens with every new tab. Any help is greatly appreciated.

These problems started when upgraded to version 36. Each time there were newer upgrades while still in version 36, for example; when I check for a newer version in Help/About/check for updates, there have been 4 sub-upgrades 36.0.1, 36.0.2, 36.0.3, 36.0.4.

When I was asked to restart after it downloaded the upgrades, it closes my browser and then about 30 seconds later, the crash reporter comes up. This never happened before and is getting to be a concern at this point.
