Last night, my system was still using Firefox 3.5.8. I was playing Farmville on Facebook and everything was working fine. This morning, I log onto my computer and find that I am upgraded to Firefox 3.6. I have been trying to play Farmville all morning, and the Adobe Flash Player keeps crashing. I have tried to update the Flash Player. I have tried restarting the computer. Nothing is working.

Longtime FF user. Still on 3.6.28 mostly, due to my need for my large collection of hierarchically organized bookmarks. I have 2000+. Trying FF 19 today. Successfully imported the json file from other system. Via the Bookmarks menu, Show All reaches Library view and everything is there. Except for the fact that this FF design will not let me see the contents of more than one folder at one time. Which is why I've stayed with 3.6.28. Now, a friend has shown me that I can see multiple folders AND the contents of multiple folders using Sidebar Bookmarks, just as I wish. Great! But after importing my bookmarks, all I see is a random list of bookmarks in the Sidebar view. There are no folders or subfolders so with this view I lose all the organizational structure I see in the Library.

Am I missing something? Is there a way (an addon) that would put everything in the Library Right Pane? instead of just one folder? That would be fine.

OR

Is there a way to preserve the organization of my bookmarks after importing them, in the Sidebar view? That would also be fine.

Thanks for any helpful answers. Otherwise, back to 3.6.28 I go.

I do not want this box popping up anymore. It seems like a bullying form of forcing something on someone.

My laptop has limited RAM - about 2GB. Of the browsers I've tried (Chrome, Safari, Firefox), Firefox uses the least RAM, but it still uses around 1GB of RAM to display about 10 tabs (gmail, facebook, reader, and assorted other websites) - this seems insanely high.

Thinking back, this didn't seem to be a problem "back in the day", so to speak, so I tried installing Firefox 3.6 again.

Lo and behold, with the same addons and the same tabs open, Firefox 3.6 is using 300MB of RAM where Firefox 21 used 980MB of RAM. In addition, navigation is noticeably snappier in Firefox 3.6 - probably because it doesn't have to page to disk as often (which would often lock up my computer using Firefox 21).

I thought that newer versions were supposed to improve memory performance, not triple the required memory...

I've installed all updates recently (win7/x64) apart from Windows Live Essentials.

In firefox (umm... 3.6.3), a single word search in the location bar, eg; "facebook", results in a bing page, not going to facebook.com, or showing google results like it used to.

Multi-word searches resolve with google.

I don't have any tool bars installed. Google is my default search engine. About:config keywordURL is set to google. "search helper extension" doesn't appear in add-ons, nor does zugo or bing bar. I've disabled all add-ons, restarted. Same result. I started in safe mode Same result.

I've removed bing from IE8, set google as default. There are no toolbars installed.

I've searched my programs list. Nothing mentioned appears, everything seems fine. I looked at recent updates, nothing related to "search". I've looked in program files/program files (x86) for Program Files\Microsoft\Search Enhancement Pack\ but no such folder exists. I searched regedit for "bing", few results, but nothing that seemed linked with FF.

Why is bing showing up? I don't want it, I didn't ask for it, and I can't get rid of it.

Well here's the screenshot of my problem: http://img177.imageshack.us/img177/7263/flashorsomething.jpg

As you can see preview windows on YouTube don't load. Also - user menu won't show.

I think it's a problem with flash plug-in, since the problem started right after I was updating it (even though I didn't need to I guess). And that leads to another problem; I tried to update it since instead of videos on people's profiles I would get error saying that I got Java Script disabled or old Flash version - it was wrong then, it is wrong now - now, cause it still gives me that error.

I post here, because on Google Chrome YouTube works perfectly fine.

I tried to reinstall flash, didn't help. Some suggestions?

EDIT: Also, now I see that YouTube on Firefox got some basic problems with functionality, like can't view "more" of videos description and so on... eh. It gots to be flash or something.

Since the new version of Firefox that was released a few days ago, I am seeing huge performance issues on most websites that are using the Flash plug-in (I have the latest version of Flash). Each website with flash-content that is bigger than a small video results in 60+ percent CPU usage and Firefox is highly unresponsive and getting almost unusable after a few seconds. It looks like the newly introduced plug-in container is making things even worse, not better. Is there a way to turn this feature off other than downgrading to an older version?

I've already downloaded the latest update 3.6.6 which updated the timeout for plug-ins and I've manually set this value to 60 seconds, but I don't think this is the actual problem. It looks like the new plug-in container and Firefox together are consuming way more CPU + memory to run Flash content than Firefox alone did before.

Issue

Firefox is having problems with certain web sites

Description

Yesterday, firefox updated itself automatically. The "what's new" screen suggested that I update Flash immediately, so I did. I had a little trouble. I eventually uninstalled Flash and re-installed with the latest version, but it is now up to date. Now flash videos will not play properly in full screen. The picture will freeze for a few seconds with the audio still playing, the screen will go blank, then the video will restart from where the audio was when the screen went blank. Sometimes Flash will crash completely and I will have to reload the page to restart the video, even not full screen. Other times I get an error message that my video driver stopped working. I have checked and my video driver is up to date.

Within the last couple days I'm getting the most annoying pop up ads...in the top right hand corner it says "SKIP THIS AD" and you have to click on it to get past it.

I've searched all around the net and I keep reading that this is specific to FireFox. I've tried running my spyware and protection software, all with no help.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit. I've installed the add on called "Ad Blocker Plus" and have added the different suggested filters, all with no help at all.

Can someone please tell me how to COMPLETELY disable these annoying ads. I've been a Firefox user for as long as I can remember...if I don't get this completely sorted out VERY soon I'm going to completely switch over to Safari.

Can anyone help me with this? Please email me if you have any permanent solutions. My contact email is jamcha00@gmail.com
