When I use Firefox for the IMVU online catalog and click to try on, it tells me I need to choose an application, but not which one. I hope you can help. I shop from the online catalog a lot, besides in the client. As I said before a launch application box, pops up, asks me to choose an application, when I click choose and look I have no clue which it wants and I can not just type in IMVU.com etc. I hope you can help, thank you.

YouTube website looks completely different and won't play any videos. Asks me for an application to play videos which it shouldn't do.

I took a screenshot but your image upload feature is not working. Little wheel spun around endlessly and never uploaded). So I will have to describe it.

YouTube looks like a cheap website with little thumbnails of the videos in a column along the left side of the screen with horizontal lines separating them. If you try to play a video you get a little box that says "This link needs to be opened with an application". Adobe Media Player launches but will not play anything. QuickTime won't launch at all, says file not compatible. But this is irrelevant, it should not require another application to play YouTube videos.

I have found since the recent update that the browser has developed several problems. It has become extremely slow and crashes multiple times per-day. Coupled with this, the flash plug-in also crashes constantly and video buffering is slow and unstable. I have made sure flash is up to date and I have also followed suggested fixes in other threads (ie. disabling hardware acceleration) to no avail.

My wife's desktop pc was hit by what I'd call "A Super Bundle" which unleashed total havoc on her pc. It took me a great deal of work 2 full days chasing down all the crap this apparent harmless download created. My approach; I'd describe it as it was like pealing back layers of an onion until everything was removed. Or to return her machine back as close to normal as I could. One of the "Leftovers" from this attack is something called; www-searching.com which has hijacked all the browsers on her computer. Nothing has worked I mean nothing. A lot of time and a great deal of effort has gone into destroying this menace now I'm asking for help.

Thanks for your time. Doug Sr.

I'm running Yosemite on a Mac Air, with fully-updated everything.

I'd like to stop pages reloading without my permission. This is usually an issue for me on news sites.

In FF preferences, the option to allow or disallow auto-reloading is tied to the option to redirect. I can allow or disallow both, but not allow one and not the other.

The net effect is, my news sites aren't automatically refreshing (yay), but other sites get stuck when a page redirect comes up. I play Scrabble online; now I have to manually allow a redirect with every play. Same with following Twitter links.

Is there some way to kill off the auto-reloads while still allowing redirects? Maybe a whitelist for redirects, as a secondary option?

Thanks!

When I visit some sites, some of the images render as small rectangles with letters & numbers inside. This issue seems to be with Firefox (see motogp.com_FireFox.jpg, attached), rather than the site because the site displays fine when I access it a different browser, such as SeaMonkey (see motogp.com_SeaMonkey.jpg, attached).

The site, motogp.com is one I frequently visit; it happens on this site. Please refer to the 2 attached images for an example of this issue.

Hello, I have tried several steps to remove this adware manually, but it still shows up as my start page. - I was not able to disable it from the add-ons (it wasn't there), - I was not able to uninstall it from the Windows Control Panel (it wasn't there), - I ran regedit.exe and manually deleted every single line that read "mystartsearch", - I refreshed Firefox and manually set the start page to the default. No good. It's still there. I also tried opening Internet Explorer and that's been infected too. What else can I do? Any advice would be really appreciated.

If I use the menu item "Tools" and select "Options", Firefox freezes, requiring a reboot. I used to have a tab that allowed me to make the changes/choices that I could see from the options menu, but I have lost it and cannot find it in my history. If I have that tab "Options" open, I can set the opening tabs to the currently configured ones. I need that. Help!!

As said in the title, every time I open Firefox, all my add-ons are deactivated, although they don't show as such in the add-ons tab. In order to have them working again, I have to deactivate and reactivate them.

On top of this, a few empty tabs show up. I use the "restore all my last session's tab on startup" setting, so these just appear after all the normal ones. A few of them show up with an address like this : " open.data:application/vnd.mozilla.xul+xml;charset=utf-8,<window/> ", while the other show up with the address of the pinned tabs I have, only incomplete, with just root address ( I mean like this : "support.mozilla.org" instead of that : "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop/fix-problems/form?search=On+startup%2C+all+ [...]" ). There is no webpage loaded in any of those tabs, but it doesn't say "New Tab" either, just an empty tab. When I click anywhere, "New tab" appears on all the previously empty tabs.

Here are a couple screenshots to illustrate all of that : before clicking : http://puu.sh/gAs1S/7ed9e1ac3f.jpg and after : http://puu.sh/gAs2j/cfb622c945.jpg

Hi there. So, for quite a while now, Firefox keeps on freezing my whole computer while watching videos on YouTube or streams on Twitch. It started a few weeks back & when I couldn't resolve the problem, I changed to Chrome. But I just don't like it, so yesterday, I decided to go back to my fav browser: Firefox.

But my problem remains: When I'm watching a video, my browser constantly keeps freezing my whole MacBook. It starts with the video just stopping but the audio keeps going on for some 10-20 seconds. Then I can't move the cursor anymore & finally the sound dies & nothing reacts anymore. I can't even open the Activity Monitor or do anything else. So the only possibility for me to get back doing stuff is to hard reset my laptop & boot it again. This just happened to me twice in the last two & 4 or 5 times in the last 24 hours... I would really appreciate, if anyone could point me towards an solution.

Oh, and I'm on OS X 10.10.2 using Firefox 36.0.1 (but it also happened on 35.x before). Hardware Acceleration is turned off & flash is on its latest version. Cache has been flushed several times as well.

Noticed the problem on http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/?expandAllOptions=true&Log=0

Drop down lists do not respond they way they did last week - before 36.0.1 upgrade.

Choose a brand, and then you are supposed to be able to select from a list of models. Not happening.

I have several of the privacy add-ons (see below) but they have not changed with the upgrade (unless they too were upgraded automatically.)

FF is becoming less and less of a joy to use as the years go by.
