When I am watching a video that requires adobe flash player, for example YouTube, and I unplug my extended monitor my Firefox freezes completely and a minutes later displays an error. I get the error message : "A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: chrome://global/content/bindings/browser.xml236" [ Continue ] [ Stop script ]

Firefox freezes when I click 'Continue' then unfreezes a few minutes later and the message comes back. When I click 'Stop script' my adobe flash crashes on all pages I have and needs refreshed. How can I fix this or is this a known bug? I also noticed that I now have an Adobe Flash Player audio mixer volume(speaker) when I have FireFox open. I didn't have this before. I'm curious to why the script is in the directory of Chrome as well.. Thanks.

Ever since I updated to firefox 20.0 I've been having a problem with firefox. Every time I start up firefox I get a message saying that this is so embarrassing for trying but failing to restore my previous session and it gives me the option to either close the page and go to the welcome screen, or to restore my previous session. My preferences has the show my home page selected, and every time that I close out of firefox, I close the page by hitting the red x, and then I highlight either the firefox icon or the firefox tab at the top of my screen and select quit. I reset firefox twice and that didn't work either.

Windows 7. I am the sole user and the administrator. Each time I start Firefox I get the "The update could not be installed. Please make sure you do not have any other instances of firefox... etc." Task Manager reports all firefox instances are closed, both apps and processes. Happens even after rebooting Windows 7 Help About Firefox reports I am on 20.0.1 "You are currently on the RELEASE channel.

There is a "Restart to Update" box. When clicked, Firefox restarts and the "The update could not be installed..." notification is there again.

I have seen this reported forever, it seems, and lots of "fixes" are suggested, yet none work. Does ANYONE have any idea why this happens, or better yet, how to fix it?

How to save all files associated with a website?

I am an administrator (but not the creator) of a website that I am responsible for updating. I do not have the documentation that I need to carry out some of my tasks. So I thought I could find out enough simply by saving the site from Firefox. The last time I did this (several years and versions of Firefox ago), there was a "Save As" command that would save the main HTML file in a selected folder AND save all the referenced subsidiary files in a unique subfolder, so constructing a local version of the site. When I tried this today in v20.0.1, both "Save As" options created a single file of the current page with all the original cross-references left as links only. Is there some other way for "dumping" the whole application onto my local hard drive?

My browser freezes then I get the error about adobe crashing. This has been happening for a few months now. I've uninstalled and reinstalled firefox and adobe multiple times. I tried making a new profile for firefox also, but nothing has helped. This past week I have also been getting errors about the shockwave plugin crashing. I've tried malware removal, antivirus removal, but it's all coming back clean. I'm not sure what to do anymore.

Here is a screen capture of it. It is the regular menu, randomly clicked, which appears everywhere. http://s23.postimg.org/ur0zwg4bf/regrigclibar.png

PROBLEM SOLVED! This is so embarrassing, but here's what fixed it. I'll leave the question here in case others download the add-on and can't figure out why it's doing what it's doing, but if a mod wants to delete the question I won't mind.

Anyhow, I right clicked on exactly the right spot on the bar and chose Delete, which brought up the add-on tab, which showed an add-on called "Default Tab," restarted Firefox, and now both behaviors are gone--no more search window in the tab bar, and no more search box in new tabs. I must have thought Default Tabs sounded cool, but didn't expect it to do what it did.

********************************************************************************

Sometime between Friday and this morning a new search box¬ appeared in Firefox that called itself the “Updated Search Bar” until I tried it the first time. I’d like to avoid resetting Firefox, but if that’s the only way to fix this I guess I’ll have to. All suggestions are welcome.

The box looks much like the default search box except that it has a big orange button on the right saying "Search." It’s located in the tab bar, next to the last tab, taking up valuable real estate if I have more than 4 or 5 tabs open, which I often do. The default “search” is Bing, the other options are things like Facebook and Twitter, and it has no option to manage search engines. It doesn’t appear in my extensions or plugins, and I can’t find information about it anywhere.

BTW, my old search box is still in the navigation bar, and although I haven’t been able to get rid of Bing for the “search” search, I’ve made DuckDuckGo the default by moving it to the top of the list.

Thanks for reading!

I have a problem with Firefox 20.0.1 under Windows 7 with Shockwave flash 11.7.700.169. When I access a web site / web page with some content that requires Shockwave (usually videos) I can view the video, however, when I exit Firefox, it will crash with "Firefox encountered a problem - check for a solution ...". I also have a web site "MyHeritage" that when I access a family tree I repeatedly get a message "Video driver stopped working - NVIDIA driver ... has successfully recovered". If I disable Shockwave, Firefox will not crash in both cases, unfortunately, I cannot watch any video content. I did go to the Adobe web site and updated what I thought was my version of Shockwave, unfortunately this installed Director for netscape V12.2, I have disabled this plug-in. BTW - running Firefox in safe mode (add-ons disabled) stopped my NVIDIA driver from crashing and also stopped Firefox from crashing when exiting.

I had this same problem about a month ago and turning off acceleration helped some. Acceleration is still "off" but the problems are back again. I'm also not able to scroll all the way down a document, it uncontrollably returns to the top. Somehow this is related to using my mouse. I have no trouble when I use IE as my browser. So it leads me to the conclusion that it is related specifically to FF.
