FF has been gradually getting slower by the day over the last couple of months, but only on one specific website. I play the game at www.fairylandgame.com and now when i play which is daily, i get continual "freeze" I have to "stop" in task manager and restore. The game works for a few mins and then freezes again. I have tried everything i have read on these support forums, cleared cache, checked for virus, unticked hardware accelerator. The game plays fine in IE11 so it has to be FF at fault. I have reset firefox time and time again and it's not resolved the issue. I even contacted the tech guys at fairyland support and they advised me to change my browser. I love Firefox and want to keep it, but because i love the game i play so much i am going to have to change to another browser if this fault cannot be rectified.

As you can see below I have a ton of opening bookmarks. I rearrange them regularly, adding and removing them as my interest grows or wanes. Over the last week, maybe two, Firefox stopped letting me change the list. It took a while to notice, but over the last couple days I've been tearing my hair out trying to fix it. It's also started not letting me change which accounts I have logged in to Google+, I don't know if that's related or not.

I have tried resetting the list to default. I've tried leaving it blank. I've tried deleting preference files. I've tried resetting Firefox entirely. Every time I load Firefox it resets the Homepage list to what it was before. I'm getting pretty frustrated. Do I need to delete Firefox and reinstall it from scratch, or is there something else I can try?

Thanks.

I have been having trouble watching YouTube videos in Firefox over the last few weeks. Basically, the video will start up and if i keep it in the small video player mode it works fine. But if I click full screen the video will stop for several seconds, then catch up and repeat this to the end of the video. However the sound always plays continually throughout the video, even while the picture is frozen. I do not have this issue in Internet Explorer or Google Chrome, and it is only happening on one of three computers that I use Firefox on. I have run full scans in Malwarebytes Anti Malware, Kaspersky Internet Security, and Windows Defender, so i am fairly certain that it is not malware or a virus that is causing the problem. I have also tried the following solutions to no avail: Reset Firefox, Run Firefox in safe mode with no addons, Reinstall Firefox (plus another clean reinstall), Reinstall Flash player

I just can't seem to figure out what is wrong, and Firefox is my favorite browser so any help would be much appreciated.

Hello,

I've been having this crashes for very long time and I can't bear it anymore. I appreciate any help. I tried to reinstalled firefox and rebuild my profile with add-on I usually use. I use quite a lot of add-on. It didn't help and then I think it might be my window. so I upgraded OS to 64 bit windows 7 (i was using windows 7 32-bit) and it still crashed. It happened usually when I have many tabs, over 20 tabs memory usage is over 1.2GB. My computer: Dual-core E6500 2.93GHz, 4GB ram, is it not powerful enough to run many add-on (just counted, I'm using over 40 add-ons) and many tabs?

My laptop doesn't have this problem. They are sync, so they have the same profile, but it is a i5 CPU and 8GB ram. my friend's firefox has much less add-on and running XP with 2GB ram and he can run more than 60 tabs without problem (he doesn't close tabs)

please let me know if you need any other information.

Cheers

I have had a problem that has corrupted IE10 and IE11 and they will no longer start. I tend to swap between IE and FF. I have an old set of bookmarks in FF but want to update it to those more recently used in IE. I have found them in a folder c:\users\stuart\favourites\(lots of subfolders), but if I import via FF using the "from a browser" option, it imports nothing. The folders I want are not html, they are folders containing url files.

Is there some way to delete my old set of bookmarks from FF and import this up to date set fro those folders?

Thanks

I downloaded and installed several animated lightening themes from your site and these use to work in an earlier version of Firefox. Now the only way they animate is by disabling and then re-enabling them but when I close Firefox, I have to do the same again so the animation works. Everything is up to date and I have followed all the steps disabling and running safe mode etc. but it makes no difference ... Same issue. I have removed Firefox, restored Firefox, updated Firefox, down dated Firefox, but the system auto updates to the latest automatically and the themes are back once again not working.

I have tried to delete internet explorer and there seems to still be an .exe file I cannot find to delete.

I installed firefox and have already set it as my default browser, cleared my cache and cookies of all thing (most) things IE. Still firefox comes up first, followed by a full screen take-over by MSN, with a banner at the top that says, "Replace Firefox with Internet Explorer, its faster and safer".

My choice is Firefox, I tried MSN and can't stand the tabloid any more. Please, help me.

Thank you, Evelyn

When I browse a TXT file, the tab character is rendered so as to look much like 8 spaces. Is there a way to control the apparent number of spaces in the rendering? Yes, I know that things like

in CSS3 would control that number in the rendering of HTML elements, but I want similar control for a TXT file.

Gmail and Yahoo mail are very slow to load. I get a script message almost every time instructing me to continue or stop script. Whatever I do stop or continue the browser goes white and locks up. I then have to restart Firefox. I have followed all suggestions on the help pages for slow or problematic email accounts. (cleared cache etc, reset etc etc) nothing fixes the issue. I only noticed the problem since the first update of FF25. Even stopping scripts on these pages is not acceptable as you are directed to pages that insist you must restart scripts. It is a nightmare! Both Gmail and Yahoomail are very slow responding to clicks as well.

The comment button is still there on Facebook when I use my laptop. It is gone on my desktop computer, but for some reason I still have to press comment then press enter to post on Facebook. Does anyone know why this might be happening??

I am running on a 2011 Macbook Pro (it behaved the same with OS 10.8 & 10.9), along with Firefox 25.0.1 (it did the same thing with previous versions of Firefox). Does anyone know how to get rid of the comment button?? I have tried clearing everything, but it didn't make any difference. The only addons I am running are AdBlockPlus, Comment Snob 4, Download Helper 4.9.2.1, and Facebook Purity (I run all the same ones on my desktop computer and it works fine). Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Clicking the "email link" menu item gives a lot of problems:

The cursor oscillates between normal and hourglass. To get rid of this I have to close Firefox.

When I've done this, a lot of copies of Internet Explorer fire up, there's an error message window on each of them saying "Could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed". To get rid of these I have to close all the IE windows from the taskbar. This is worrying: the default mail client within FF is The Bat! - why on earth is IE firing up at all?

I have a feeling that this may have started after MS Update installed IE version 11, but that may be a coincidence.

I've reset FF - this lost most of my personal settings and is now a serious pain. I've put back some of the Addons and plugins, but my NoScript settings have vanished - where are they please?

My problem is that when I'm watching Videos in the web it goes about 15 seconds in to the video and then the video screen freezes but the audio continues BUT as a replay of about 10 back in the video. When these 10 seconds have passed the video continues along with the synced audio. After about a minute or two It happens again. 10 seconds video freeze and 10 seconds of audio replay. Which is really REALLY annoying. This only happens with my Mozilla Firefox browser, I've uninsulated it and installed it three times and I'm using Windows 8. (I know it sucks). I also got the latest version of Adobe Flash Player V11.

Thanks.

Many search facilities will honor a phrase. If I specify "tab character" [including the quote marks!], they will search for the phrase "tab character" and only return links to documents with that phrase. As I discovered when trying to answer a question about controlling how the tab character is rendered, the search function in Mozilla support returns links to everything dealing with browser tabs. I tried using s-quote marks rather than d-quote marks, but that did not help. I could not find any button with a name like "Advanced" to get more control over the search. So far as I can tell, [Search Mozilla Support] insists on treating the phrase "tab character" as a search for anything with the word "tab" or the word "character".
