Firefox updated to v.22 today and the Roboform toolbar is nowhere to be seen. It is in add-ons and enabled, but not visible through toolbars or as the icon to customize toolbars. All was well with Firefox 21. There appears to be a compatibility problem between Roboform and Firefox 22. Installed version is Roboform v. 7.8.9.5. Please work with them and issue an update. We're stuck without it!

Meanwhile, do you have any suggestions about how to get this working? Reinstalling RF didn't make any difference.

Why do I persistently get this particular script error that makes my browser hang for dozens of minutes?

chrome://global/content/bindings/tabbox.xml:73

It has nothing to do with any of the extensions or plug-ins I have activated. The only ones I ever have activated almost all of the time are Status-4-Evar in the Extensions category, and Adobe Acrobat in terms of Plug-ins. Both of these are up to date. It's also not about hardware acceleration, I don't believe, because I've disabled that feature in my options.

No, the error seems to pop up when I'm dealing with "busy" webpages with a lot of graphics and such. I've tried all of the little tricks they have here in the help, and it's still not stoping the script. I use to get a similar perisistent script error on older versions of Firefox.

A little help, por favor, to solve this once and for all, because I know I'm far from the only one experiencing this.

Turned on Firefox this afternoon to find all text rendering about 30% too big. Icons in tabs and on bookmark bar are too big, as well. If I press Ctrl+- twice, then it looks normal, but Ctrl+0 sets everything to abnormally large again. Gmail in particular looks wrong no matter what I set the zoom to, as if the UI is too big but the text is too small.

I have no idea what's going on. Restarting Firefox multiple times didn't help. Disabling every addon and plugin didn't help.

Ever since taking the latest update for Firefox, anytime I click on a link on a page that opens into a new window, if I try to "X" out that second window, it also closes the page I came from. If I manually open another window for whatever purpose, it seems to work fine. It's only when I get a new window from a link in the previous one. BOTH windows always shut down. Not tabs, but windows. It's very annoying if I wasn't done with the first page I was on. I even tried to minimize the second open window, then right clicking from my task bar to close it, but it will still also close the original window I was in when I clicked the link. This has happened on MANY websites I've visited from links.

[this is my second attempt to post; first effort not allowed as I did not have authorization-??]

I can open any one email, as normal. Links within an email seem to work, when I try them. However:

Once I open an email, I can not delete it or close it. When I click "ACTIONS" or 'COMPOSE" the pop-up message "LOADING..." never completes, apparently looping.

When I click "COMPOSE", a text msg appears on the bottom of my screen indicating, I think, what the computer is reading:

us-mg205.mail.yahoo.com/neo/launch?.partner=sbc&.rand=cgcse0vj3t121#/minty/page/compose

if I attempt to delete, the same msg appears, minus "minty/page/compose"

When I mouse-over or click the gear wheel (settings) icon it merely spins and does nothing. Same text msg, except instead of "minty/page/compose" it reads "yucs-help_inner".

This situation arose about two days ago on my laptop. The same email works normally with Safari on my Ipad, also on my laptop via Windows Live Mail (which I no longer use but still have the program). Thus this appears to be a Mozilla/Firefox issue?

When I perform a single word search in the firefox address bar, such as 'asdf', 'google' 'test', i get rediredted to sitecrafting.com At first a web logo for sitecrafting shows up but my single word search is still in the address bar. Then after a second or two the sitecrafting.com address appears in the address bar and the screen refreshes to the sitecrafting.com website.

However, if i do a multiple word serch in the address bar, then i get a google search as expected. For instance 'asdf asdf' give me a google search results page for that two worded phrase.

I have done the keyword.url reset. I have uninstalled firefox and removed all profile/preference and then reinstalled. I have tested in safe mode with all addons disabled. None of these have fixed the problem.

Please oh please help me!!!!

After the latest Firefox version magnified everything, I used the NoSquint add-on (at 60%), which now makes web pages look as they did before. However, although the top two bars at the top of the screen are of normal size, the lower ones are still too large. The bar that contains the URL on the left and a Google search space on the right, for instance, can display only the first couple of letters of a URL (after the //).

How do I make these bars look the way they used to? Thanks.

I have the latest version of Firefox and Windows 7. For the past fortnight or so web pages have been incomplete in Firefox but work in Google chrome. eg: if I open the Amazon site and wish to purchase an item the frames on the right named Add to Basket or add to wish list are completely missing. If I pass the mouse pointer over where they should be, the pointer changes to the hand symbol but no details appear.

I have completely reset Firefox and then opened in safe mode but the fault remains.

I have checked every option in the Tools / option section that seem appropriate but with no luck.

Can you advise please

Hello, I have been having the Unresponsive Script warnings for what is probably going on a year or so now, and it's getting increasingly difficult to use my computer. I'm not hugely technical with my computer, but I do know some, and have fixed many many problems before, even fixing my computer from a devestating malware virus a couple years ago myself, using only information from the internet. Which is why I find it so infuriating that I cannot find ANY answer to help me with this problem.

Here is some of what I get in a day or so:

Most of the time it's Facebook that's giving me a problem, but it does it on other websites too. Without going into tons and tons of detail, I have basically tried EVERYTHING I can do on my own. I have searched this problem for months and months, and always come back with nothing helpful. I tried FF safemode in the past day or two, and it occurs there as well. I have tried everything from changing dom.max_script_run_time default, I've tried Greasemonkey, I've disabled, enabled, and disabled every script I had, I've reset FF, I've turned off the hardware accelerator, etc, etc, etc. I can't even tell you everything else that I've done because it's been such an ongoing problem. I am to the point now, that I am not going on the computer for days (even though I have things to do) because I don't want to be on it for 6 hours at a time. I want to check facebook every day for about 30 minutes, to read my mail, and chat with my friends, but it turns out to be a lesson in frustration, and I've learned to play classical music when on my computer because it calms me down. Waiting 3 hours just to check your facebook is increadibly inconvenient; something that I did at the library in 10 minutes. It doesn't just happen on FB, but that's the MAIN culprit. My Shockwave Flash also crashes ALL the time, and I've updated it several times. I've tried everything, and I just can't win. If this continues, I'm giving up on FF. I love FF. I want to use it. It used to be the best thing ever. But now, I can't do it anymore.. my patience is so stretched, that I am just done. I am OBVIOUSLY not the only one with this problem, as there seems to be a million questions on the internet about this problem, and NOBODY can give a straight answer. WHY?? FF you can do better than this! You MUST solve this problem! It's affecting so many people out there! Sincerely, M

Ps.. I have a PC, Windows XPPro, FF22.0, and I had YesScript 1.9, Personas Plus 1.7,2.1, and Status-4-Evar 2013.02.16.23 (But all have been removed with the FF Reset) and none of them were the culprit because I disabled them a while ago, and still had the problem day after day.

Thank you for your help :)

I downloaded something from download[dot]com (I'm not typing in the address because I don't want anyone to link there without proper warning). I've searched and done *everything* I've found for removing this extension. MBAM, Spyware Terminator, Windows Defender (I'm on W8 and it's built in, so no reason not to use it), uninstall manually, nothing.

It's not listed *anywhere* on my computer. But while searching, I did find something. It creates a Windows Task object that re-installs the extension and it's component software (i.e. a separate program that collects user data) on startup if it's removed.

Can anyone provide help? I've even found the solutions listed here and they don't work anymore.

EDIT: for anyone else reading this, you have to find and delete the global folder that the extension has placed itself in.

There is a lot of discussion on https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=812695 about the right workaround or how to apply it. I'm starting this forum thread to move the discussion.

From the bug the current workarounds are:

  • in about:config set gfx.direct2d.disabled to true
  • in about:config set gfx.content.azure.backends to cairo instead of direct2D
  • Uninstall IE10 and update KB2670838
