When I was opening new links from Google search result pages, sometimes I got the 'Server Not Found' pages. I had to refresh two times like that to get the pages loaded. I searched for solutions online and I had tried to turn off antivirus, disable DNS prefetching, uncheck "Tell web sites I do not want to be tracked", disable IPv6 in Firefox, restart with add-ons disabled but they all failed. I found that there is no problem using Google DNS. Help thanks.

Hello everyone, here is my problem:

I can't log into Twitter from Firefox, I am using the latest version that is available on OS X Yosemite. I can log into Twitter from other browsers like Chrome and Safari. And whenever I put my login credentials it just resets back to the login page, it doesn't say wrong password or anything, it just resets the page. Also, I have looked around a few topics related to this and a few related solutions such as clearing cookies and cache, and editing the about:config option that I forgot the name of.

Thanks for the help!

Hi there,

Since the last update, I've noticed that there seems to to be asian writing across the top of my browser where my tab normally are.

Not sure what this is about or if it is something I should be worried about.

I'd just like more information if you have it, or the best way to stop it from happening.

I've added some screenshots too...


Thank you,

Joe

The update option is hidden or removed in the Ubuntu Release Version. I don't quite understand what they are saying on installing or updating FireFox on the Ubuntu site?! I was hoping to receive an easier explanation as to how to either update FireFox to a Mozilla Version or how to install the Original Mozilla FireFox Version!! I am new to Ubuntu and don't quite understand the Linux Lingo! I tried to add an image, but it would not upload my image. Thanks and I look forward to hearing back from someone :^)

I don't know what details are needed so I'll just rattle off anything that I can think of.

I am running an Asus laptop with windows 7. I have never had an issue with firefox in the past (beyond the usual freezing and some obvious issues with pop up ads that are par for the course with firefox since adblocker never does what it says.... not really. Lets be honest.) I am using Avast for my virus protection and it is also up to date.

My issue started about an hour ago when firefox stopped responding. The video I had playing kept going but I could not interact with anything. Assuming the program froze for the billionth time that week I rebooted it. This has always solved freezing issues in the past. Now, however, firefox is doing something new.

I can access the menus and almost everything on the window itself except for the minimize/maximize/close buttons, I cannot move the window at all, and I cannot manually resize it. I have also noticed that although videos will play, I can only click on their buttons if there is another smaller window overtop of firefox. The video controls will only appear that way and when I click them firefox naturally comes to the front and the video responds with the button I used but the buttons are gone again and I cannot resume playing without the smaller window back in front to make the buttons show again.

It's as if half of firefox is frozen while the other half is still running somehow.

I have no themes that could be causing this. Literally none. I only use firefox for the things that can no longer be opened in Opera so I have no need for any theme beyond default. The only addons I installed on purpose were adblockers (lord knows why. they don't DO anything.) though several other random things seem to have been installed over time to aid in one thing or another. Various plugins and players and versions of java, that sort of thing. But I have everything (and i mean EVERYTHING) in the addon menu disabled. I have tried booting it up in safe mode (the program, not windows) and the problem is still there except now it won't show the menu bar at all unless I press the alt key first and even then it wont let me actually click on anything in the menu bar. When I try the whole bar vanishes. I had to close firefox with the task manager. Rebooting will fix the issue for about 15 seconds before it all comes back. Any attempts at updating have failed as it says I am already up to date on everything so I don't know what its issue is.

It's not an urgent issue right now as most of what i need to do can be done on the half screen window I am using, but some of my sites have buttons that literally vanish in anything but full screen and I imagine that this will be a much greater annoyance within a few days.

My wife's machine is running Windows 8.1, Firefox 34.0.5 and Adobe Acrobat X Standard. Cannot open .pdfs in the browser. Clicking a link to a .pdf will open a new tab that immediately closes, leaving me right back where I was, as if I had never clicked the link. I can right click, then Save As, download the file and open in Adobe Acrobat X. But that's not what I want, and not how it was designed.

Internet Explorer 11 opens .pdfs in the environment described above, in-browser, with no problems.

I've followed all the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/972278 and http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/cant-view-pdf-web.html. Neither Mozilla's nor Adobe's instructions can get me up and running.

As a nuclear option, I uninstalled Adobe Acrobat, restarted the machine, uninstalled Firefox, restarted the machine, re-installed Adobe Acrobat, restarted the machine, and re-installed Firefox, and restarted the machine. Attempting to open any .pdf yields the same result, even after uninstalling and re-installing everything. What's going on here? Why does Firefox open a blank tab, and then close it right away? Block pop-ups is set to off, and antivirus pop-up blocking is disabled.

My own machine running Windows 7, Firefox 34.0.5, and Adobe Acrobat X Standard opens .pdfs in-browser just fine, with no problems.

Any advice? I'm pulling my hair out!! Thanks for your time.

When my browser sits idle I will come back to find a new tab has opened without any action on my part. Almost always this tab includes some sort of link. When I touch that link my security suite blocks the action. It is a continuing series of these tabs, all of which are hacking attempts. In addition, I find that when I start my computer Firefox will often launch spontaneously and go to Bing.com as a start page. I don't use Bing at all, so this is another unwanted launching of a window or tab. These things are happening without my consent, and are totally undesirable. There should be a way to prevent the software from opening without any action on my part, or it should be my choice to permit tabs to be opened without my consent. I've searched my computer thoroughly and can find no hint of virus or malware, nor any add-ons that would enable this sort of activity. I'm looking either for help, or for you people to recognize that your software may have a security flaw that is being exploited, one that you need to isolate and resolve.

When I get my bookmarks the way I want them on my computer and delete the ones I do not want it gets messed up. I have 4 computers on my account and every time I sync it brings up old book marks. I have deleted all book marks from my computer and set up a new sync account then deleted all book marks on my other computers. Then I set up the new sync account on all the computers and still brings up Book marks.

Also, on Youtube Home screen, provides the following: Hello, you seem to have JavaScript turned off. Please enable it to see search results properly.

As a result, I've updated Javascript, Flash and have made certain Javascript is ENABLED. Still no taskbar. that will enable me to play YouTube videos.

PS: HAVE TO USE Firefox 34 as ALL subsequent updateS result in the following JavaScript Application error:
