I am not able to view any YouTube videos on YouTube or Facebook whilst using Firefox. My Flash Player/Plugin/Shockwave Player & Javascript are all the most recent and all show as up to date and working. On selecting a video to view I now have a blank screen which I have right clicked on & notice there is an Adhoc Plus - Block Image message and wonder if this should be there as this is not the case when viewing through Internet Explorer (which still allows me to view all videos & shows that I have Flash Player installed when I right click on the same screen). I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled to see if this would solve the problem but this has made no difference. I have also noticed on my Firewall that Javascript is not showing as an Exception and changed this to find that this has made no difference either. I am now at a complete loss - can anyone help me please as I would like to keep using Firefox. Many thanks

Everywhere I click the cursor appears like I am going to write something. Idk if I did something or something changed but it is kinda annoying. I may not have noticed it doing this before for a long time but today I have been. It appear wherever I click at the start of a line. I have not changed a thing on my Firefox settings for the longest of time. The only thing I had to do recently was reset how I wanted it to search for updates and it even went back to it's setting I had it on before.

So is this a part of Firefox that is just now catching my attention or did something change?

I have Firefox set up on my old XP machine. I now want to set up Firefox on my new Windows 7 machine. I can easily export my bookmarks to transfer to my new machine.

I cannot find any way to export my Options settings. In particular I need to export my lists of "Exceptions" to Cookie / Image / Pop Up Rules. However it would also be nice to Export the other settings such as homepage. I want to set up three accounts on the new machine and it will be very tedious if I must re-enter all the information - especially as it is not possible even to cut-and-paste the text from the Exceptions lists.

Is there any tool for me to save all the Options from one installation and then load then into another?

I knew which files and/or registry keys to copy it would help as I would not have a problem making appropriate registry changes if it would save me from having to go via the Options menus.

Surely there is some method to do this?

Regards. Steve

For quite a while now my Firefox has been crashing. I always assumed it was because I had too many tabs open so I didn't really try to remedy the situation. Recently, I finally decided to upgrade to Firefox 24 and the issue has gotten much worse - with Firefox crashing even when I have only a limited number of tabs open and it crashing much more often. Furthermore, after updating to Firefox 24, I've had issues with Adobe Flash crashing randomly as well (note: I did not have this problem with the older version of Firefox). My Adobe Flash was up to date and after a bit of research I read that maybe the up to date version of Flash (version 11.9) had a problem running properly with Firefox 24 so I downgraded to the Flash version 11.8 but alas the problem of Flash crashing it still occurring. But even when I don't have any Flash players open, Firefox will still crash or lag. I feel like the issues are all connected somehow.

I've visited various Firefox troubleshooting pages but as I don't know what the exact problem is, I'm not sure which help methods I should target. I don't use that many add-ons/plugins so I don't think they would be causing a problem. Also, I have unchecked the 'use hardware when available' to see if that made any difference, but it doesn't seem to.

On the about:crashes page, the overwhelming majority of the reports do not start with 'bp' at the front of them and there is mention of throttling when I click on them (maybe that's because I crash so often? I don't know). I am unsure about how to decipher the crash reports and would appreciate any help to my problem.

The five most recent crash IDs are: 427a3a5a-79ba-482b-81af-d96d25d8e642 ae01989b-2623-4889-9ab0-cbf193b0acd3 737a1945-29cf-4395-85f5-3a5424da5254 bp-4a49fa46-6fb5-4244-a221-e55d72131028 28ff6786-68b5-4dbf-b255-43f358155160

The five most recent crash IDs that start with 'bp' are: bp-87172abd-586d-4c7a-b53c-8908c2131027 bp-b74dbc36-9bf8-4236-be28-154c32131026 bp-3420cf79-36ad-4043-92b2-a14482131021 bp-a4d7de9e-fd9f-42cb-b570-34db12131021 bp-eaa24b3b-1a33-412e-99b6-62b9e2131018

I regularly get a nonresponsive script, especially in a browser session that has been around for awhile. I find that if I end nonresponsive scripts, the browser remains stable. Heaven help me if I leave a browser window open for several hours, and return to the computer to find it tied up and it will take 15 minutes to respond to a mouse click or a keyboard entry until I can finally get Firefox shut down or forced to end.

I tried to use the "Always perform this action" check box and select to end the script. I figured if I choose that option it would always end a nonresponsive script when it's time for the box to appear.

I would prefer that over finding the computer tied up with a nonresponsive browser four hours later.

OS Windows XP SP3 and now Firefox 27.0.1

Gmail and YouTube seem to be two sites that are especially troublesome.
