Just started happening a few days ago. Firefox had crashed itself (as it does from time to time) upon loading again it asked if I wanted to restore lost tabs, I said no so I could start fresh. Now when I try to click a bookmark, load up a page, type in a URL, Google something in the box it quickly confirms and stops right away (as if it is done) and all the tab says, still, is 'new tab' and nothing to show for it. As I am having to process this request through a different computer, I do not have details on my plug-ins at this time. I have recently updated to the newest Firefox edition. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the browser with no effect.

When I try to manage my Norton account, I get a message that I need to load in the latest version of Firefox. When I look at the version I have in my system it shows 43.0.2 . No matter what I do, the latest version of Firefox is not recognized. Norton isn't the only software that doesn't recognize the latest version. Facebook is another not recognizing the latest version. My system is a HP desktop that's about 5 or 6 years old. Don't know what to do, I've reloaded a number of times but nothing gets recognized.

The first observation was today. If I enter a web page address Firefox deletes the address after pressing enter and nothing else happens. There is no error message. It is not frozen and the cursor is always blinking. This happens using either the address filed or the search field of the Firefox start page. The Internet Explorer has no problem opening the pages I tried with Firefox. I have removed Firefox using the Geek Uninstaller and installed the latest version. No change. I am using Win 7 64 bit and no proxy.

Web Site Pane Flashing On and Off

Can anyone help me resolve a *maddening* (recent) issue:

BACKGROUND Currently using Firefox (v. 43.0.2 ) on a MacBook Pro (v.10.11.1) The issue (described below) only, but *always*, occurs at this web site, to which I go daily:

http://internacional.elpais.com/

It never occurs elsewhere.

NOTE: 1. The above URL is the web site for one of Spain's main, national newspapers. It's equivalent to NY Times in US, The Guardian in UK etc. 2. The problem has developed recently, and, as stated before - never occurs on any other web sites. Nor does it occur if I use Safari at this site (which I don't wish to do) !

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The above URL opens the following: (see screen shot attachment #1). Obviously, as it's a newspaper, the page content will change daily, but its format remains the same. And....that opening page is always fine (no issue there).

However, any and all links on that page will, in turn, open pages which are always divided into 2 vertical columns or panes. (See screen shot attachment #2). And the link (just clicked on) always opens in the left hand column . The right hand pane always contains links to "Latest News", "Latest Videos", "Recommended Articles". etc. etc. etc. going down the length of the page. It takes up almost 1/2 the width of the screen.

And ......***that entire right hand pane flashes on and off, like clockwork, every 6 seconds - or more precisely - it's ON for 6 seconds, OFF for 1 second, ON for 6 seconds, OFF for 1 second, ON..........ad nauseum....making it almost impossible to concentrate on what one is attempting to read (in Spanish!) in the left hand pane!!!***

It's totally distracting and finally untenable. (See screen shot attachment #3 - taken 1 second after attachment #2 - and you'll see the right hand pane has momentarily disappeared, leaving empty space).

I'd be grateful for any insight into what might be causing this one web site to behave so annoyingly. Since I'm not experiencing this issue (or any issue, for that matter) elsewhere and since this does not occur if I use Safari - I have to surmise there is a weird interaction between Firefox and that specific web site.

But what might it be?

I'm running FIrefox on IMac OS-X El Captain version 10.11.21. Pages I am on (especially on Facebook) randomly switch to other pages and then in some case return back to the page I was originally on. I've reinstalled Firefox and followed other suggestions, however the problem remains. Is this a Firefox problem or something other. More importantly is there anything I can do to fix this?

Sometimes I close Firefox with the windows and tabs left open because I plan to use them the next day. I also close tabs after a crash when I have been running too many programs at the same time. When I open Firefox the next day, I'm asked which of my previous windows and tabs I want to restore and even though I only indicate certain ones, when they are restored there are old tabs that open up with them and I have to go through and delete each of the old tabs again. Today I tried not restoring anything, which closed Firefox. When I opened it again, the same window that I had unchecked was asking to be restored. I unchecked the window and closed Firefox several more times and then decided to open the window......this time there was a string of about 50 old tabs that opened up with the window!

While I was customizing Firefox, one of my Navigation Toolbar buttons (for an add-on) accidentally got moved to the Bookmarks toolbar; since then, it hasn't been visble. I went into Customizing Mode, but the button didn't show up. I move the Bookmarks Toolbar links to a temporary folder, but there still wasn't any sign of the button. Before I uninstall and reinstall the addon, is there some way to force a hidden button to appear swo that I can move it to the navigation Toolbar where it belongs. I would appreciate any comments, especially those suggest a solution. (You mightask why I haven't just gone ahead with the uninstall/r3einstall; well, I'm hoping for a general answer that woul work for both add-on buttons and standard toolbar buttons [where there's no add-on to work with.) Many thanks in advance.

The last two firefox updates somehow rendered my option inaccessible. I have to boot in safe mood to make any changes which is annoying. I did a refresh as well as a new reinstall and I still have the problem. All my addons worked fine until this last update. I also use Avast antivirus and tried to disable some options I thought may interfere with firefox but did not disable "web protection" altogether. I am at a loss.
