Hi,

whenever i start a fresh Firefox Process and open Websites (example: g2play.net), Firefox will freeze for around 3 Minutes before the Website loads. This happens on a bunch of different Websites. Different browsers work fine (tried IE10).

What i have tried to fix this issue: - Disable all Addons - Disable Javascript - Start in Safe Mode - Clear all Files (Cache, Offline Data, everything) - Completely remove and install Firefox new - Create a new Windows user - Update all Drivers - Closing all the background programs i could close

Nothing fixed my Problem so far.

Computer Specs: Windows 7 64 bit SP1 updated to the newest versions AMD Phenom II x6 1100T - 6 core proccesor running at 3,30 GHZ noname 8 GB DDR 3 RAM ATI Radeon HD 5750 noname 2 TB Harddrive

Programs running in the background: Steam, Thunderbird, Avast, Winamp, Piclair, Brother ControlCenter3, Brother Status Monitor, Razer Lachesis 5600, AMD Vision Engine Control Center

I think (im not 100% sure on this) that the problem first appeared with Firefox 20.0.1. Also it only happens when loading that website for the first time, once its cached it doesn't hang anymore (i have my firefox set to clear the cache everytime the browser exits).

edit: it's not my connection, neither my DNS Server. I got a 100mbit connection running and i have tried to access the website directly over the IP but the problem still remains.

Updated to Firefox 20.0, now whenever i go into private browsing mode, it switches back to default firefox theme, i have a custom persona installed for firefox, which works in normal mode (and used to work in earlier versions in private browsing as well), but in FF20.0, private browsing just loads up with default ff theme, although i still can see it enabled in Add-ons tab, but it just does'nt shows up in private browsing window.. :(

Continuing from: https://support.mozilla.org/he/questions/954790?esab=a&s=&r=3&as=s

After reading the file http://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/services/healthreport/README.rst I created in about:config a new Boolean “datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled” (false) and then manually deleted other “datareporting” entries from prefs.js. Most of the entries haven’t reapeared. 2 have: user_pref("datareporting.healthreport.nextDataSubmissionTime", "1365184210363"); user_pref("datareporting.policy.firstRunTime", "1365097810363");


If you can think of a better way please let me know.

I'm running FF 20.2 on Mac OS X 10.8.3. I recently found that item in drop-down menu cannot be selected by clicking, although it can be selected by hitting "enter" on keyboard. I have no add-ons installed so that shouldn't be the problem. Like go to http://www.newegg.com/ and click search menu, I can't select any options. Thanks for your help in advance.

I am desperate to remove Delta Search from my new tab page. What do I do after I open about:config? I have done at least a dozen resets, have removed DS via add/remove, am running a virus scan at present...this is TERRIBLE, and there HAS to be a way to get rid of it. When I do a reset, the new tab page is what I WANT...my previously saved pages. However, when I CLOSE FF and reopen, the new page is, once again, Delta. Can you hear me SCREAM? Can you see my TEARS? I am really fed up. Thanks for getting back to me with a solution that WORKS. jo

I don't know but i am uncertain of the tagging in Firefox. Have the Firefox team changed the tagging in later revisions of Firefox?

Back in FF 4 i think i made som tags on a certain adress (in this case www.tranceadict.com) which in turn created a virtual folder called Tranceaddict.


When looking in the tags of the bookmarks in that folder i don't see any tags applied at all. So i wonder how i could create such a virtual folder before but not now?

Thanks!

For some reason this afternoon, when i go onto Mozilla Firefox, and select another tab, Amazon.com goes into every tab I select. This has also happened with Google Chrome. On Mozilla, Amazon.com has also made itself the home page, although I had bbc.co.uk as the home page. I have uninstalled Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, and then reinstalled both browsers, which I though had finally stopped it from doing it, only for it to start doing it about 30 minutes later. It doesnt do it with Internet Explorer but I prefer to use Firefox and also Google Chrome so it is frustrating to find out why is this happening. I have done a full antivirus scan and virus definitions are up-to-date, and nothing has shown up to indicate it is viral. Any ideas ?

Please can anyone help I am getting an error message pop up that says "Something is trying to trick firefox into accepting an insecure update. Please contact your network provider and seek help." I recently did a clean reinstall and deleted all of my program folder before reinstalling a fresh copy after having a similar king of error message pop up, but it seems I have swapped one kind of problem for another. I am a complete novice at computers and any help anyone is willing to give me needs to be in step by step form and as basic as possible. Thanks.

When I go to the Tools menu, there is no option for private browsing. The option was there earlier today when I was using version 19.something (I checked the version when another computer in the office had upgraded firefox and had the same problem) When the browser upgraded to 20.0, private browsing disappeared.

I have backupped my bookmarks using Firefox's functionality to do it automatically and saved the file to an external HD before I was making a clean installation of Windows, which means all my files were removed. Later on, after re-installing Firefox, I tried to use the backup I had so I can have all my bookmarks once again, but when I try to look for that file, it seems it has the wrong format (a regular "File" instead of JSON or HTML, not sure which one of them should it be). So I tried to change it to "*.JSON" and it still didn't shoe up in the dialog box. So I tried "*.HTML", which DOES show up but everytime I try to import it, it actually does nothing.

I really need this file since it contains many sites that I need. Thanks in advance.

Ever since I upgraded to v20 of Firefox a problem has occurred where I will close Firefox properly (close browser and then quit application as I am on a Mac) but when I open it again I will get a message. This message is "Oh this is embarrassing..." and try to get me to reopen my tabs I had before. This will also happen if I have just one tab open and then close it. I was wondering if there is a way to fix it!

Every time I turn my computer on, I click my Firefox icon in taskbar at bottom, BUT, not only does my homepage tab show up, but lately I have been seeing another tab showing up beside it called "New Tab" but it is Blank. I don't how it all of a sudden showed up, but I can't seem to get rid of it. I right click & "close tab", but I have to do this every time I turn on my computer. Isn't there a way to Permanently Remove this Tab so it doesn't keep showing up on my Tab Bar?
