For the last few days my Firefox does not display the downloads window. I have tried to follow the suggestion set out in Firefox Help ie Tools --> Options --> General

But my General Tab doesn't show under Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file". Under Downloads, the only option shows "save files to Downloads" and "Always ask me where to save files".

Any suggestions on how I can get to --> Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file".

Thank you in anticipation

FIREFOX 3.6.6 FREEEZEZ ON GOOGLE FIRST SEARCH PAGE

Dear Mozilla,

As of the last update to 3.6.6 when one searches anything in GOOGLE the Firefox will take you to the first searched page. Any attempts to click on any other page or the 'next' arrow results in a little box appearing where you are clicking and then basically nothing.

That's all you get. The web address for the next page search appears in the address bar but the page never appears...Firefox leaves you sitting one page in.

If you hit the 'refresh' icon the browser will move to the next indicated page but then that's it again. Help!!! I rolled bacl to version 3.5.6 but this still keeps occurring, suggesting that my registry has become corrupted in regards to Mozilla. Thanks Bill

My OS is Windows 7 Pro 64 bit; using Firefox ver 15.0. I downloaded Babylon tool bar and related apps because they were associated with a tool manual that I wanted to review. I then discovered how invasive these apps are. Successfully removed Babylon downloader and Tool bar via Start | Control Panel | program menu. However I notice that "Search the web (Babylon)" is still listed in the drop down menu of search engine options. I have defaulted my search engine to Google, and I can delete the Babylon option, but it returns every time when I close my browser and then return to my FF Mozilla home page. How can I permanently remove Babylon as a search engine option?

After restarting my computer, I got a new FF web page and ALL my bookmarks as well as history have been deleted.

How do I get them ALL back?

I have tried every solution on the Mozilla Help section - I cant do a Restore I have a very old version of backups - 2016

The online help system is going around and around in circles not giving any solutions. 4 hours of trying to sort this out is ridculous.

I really do not want to have to move to Chrome, I far prefer Mozilla, but I can not afford to loose more time sorting this problem out. If not resolved here, I will reluctantly have to restart all my bookmarks in Chrome.

I need all my bookmarks - some are work related.

Please Help

I switched to FF a few years ago and never had a problem Wonderful program. FF wanted to upgrade to V7, and it installed fine. Since then, FF locks up every five minutes so bad I have to reboot. My email locks up, yahoo freezes, and I cannot type more than 5 letters in a chat without lockup. Somehow, your annoying help section tries to blame this on other programs!

Some HTML5 videos won't play in my Firefox browser.

This vine for example (https://vine.co/v/b3v5h3Piwt7) only shows up as a static image. I can click the mute/audio button though, but it won't play. When I look at the webconsole when I load the page then 2 javascript warnings show up, the first one say that the Mediasource [long url here] can't be encoded and another one says loading of all candidate sources failed. loading media paused.

I'm using Firefox 21.0 and I tried to run Firefox in safe mode with disabled add-ons, and I also tried to reinstall it, but without success.

Thanks in advance.

During normal usage Firefox will suddenly stop loading all pages in all tabs/windows. Every currently loading page remains blank, with the usual 'Connecting to ____' message. Any new tabs or windows opened, or any new page requests, get stuck in the same loop. The program itself does not hang and, other than failing to load pages, performs normally. No change in behaviour with all add-ons disabled. Seems to happen with any website, but seems to happen more often on pages with any elements that take excessively long to load. Only current solution is to close program and restart.

This is not a router/connectivity issue, IE and other programs can connect fine while the issue is occurring. Full system virus scan came up empty (Sophos/Ad-Aware/WinDefender). I believe I first starting having the problem with FF6, feels like it has become more frequent with FF7.

This problem popped up for the first time a few months ago. but I was able to work around it by by clicking on "I understand the risks" on the "This Connection Is Untrusted" warning page, and then by adding a security exception. That fix would work for random lengths of time... sometimes for days, sometimes for minutes. Now, after updating to the latest version of Firefox, I get the same security warning but the option to click "I Understand the Risks" is gone. I get this error message on the technical details page: (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer

I have done everything listed here many, many times: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/connection-untrusted-error-message I mean everything. Delete cert.db, start in safe mode, empty cache, delete and reinstall.... Nothing works.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello,

I've seen this problem listed several times prior to this post, but none of the solutions have helped me.

I've been using Firefox for ages and the last 3 updates or so have been exhibiting this issue. When I attempt to load a website, Firefox will begin to take me to the page and then hang. The circle in the tab will stop moving and it will sit there until I move the mouse or press a button on the keyboard. As long as the mouse is continuously moving or keyboard buttons are pressed, the page will load fine. The same thing happens with YouTube. The video will start and then freeze unless the mouse/keyboard is moved. Firefox also exhibits this behavior when I try to download a file from a website. The download will start and then hang until I move the mouse or press a button, then it will continue for a few seconds and hang again until I repeat the mouse movement or keyboard button press.

So far, I've tried updating Firefox, Java and Flash; starting Firefox in Safe Mode; uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox: doing a complete uninstall and reinstall of Firefox with profile removal and creation. I've run the following ad and malware detection tools with no infections found: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, AdwCleaner, SuperAntispyware, Microsoft Safety Scanner, Windows Defender, Spybot Search & Destroy, Kasperky Free Security Scan and Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller.

The only thing that I've tried that "seemed" to work was starting Windows in Safe Mode with networking and running Firefox there. I was able to watch YouTube videos without freezing and websites appeared to load properly. Obviously, I can't run in Safe Mode all the time.

I've attached a screenshot of what it looks like when Firefox hangs on Google News. Notice that the images partly load, but a good number of them are either waiting or not loaded.

I hope someone can help me, since I really like Firefox and I'd hate to switch to Chrome or (shudder) IE.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I am running Win7pro and Firefox 35. I am able to access the history channel website history.com, but the link to "full video access" does not appear. "Full video access" is a link to login with your particular TV provider that permits one to watch all available episodes. I have confirmed that Flash is up-to-date and enabled. I have confirmed that Java is up-to-date and enabled. I have deleted all history, cache, and cookies. Third party cookies are allowed. History.com is not listed as an exception. I have also deleted the cookies.sqlite from my profile. Still the login link does not appear. Other information - I am able to access this website including the "full access video" link on my other Win7 computer using Firefox 35. History.com support tells me that the problem is on my computer not on their website. Can anyone suggest what might be the problem?

Hello

I have spent 3 days trouble shooting this and can't resolve it. Firefox won't load pages, just get a grey spinning circle forever. No other message. I close firefox and restart, it won't start as it is still running in background. Task manager will not close it. I have to reboot the PC. I have tried deleting profiles, which helps for a few minutes then it locks again. I tried re-installing firefox and again it works for a few minutes then nothing. I have completely deleted all 'appdata' and still no luck. New profile doesn't help. I checked all security settings, firewall, etc. and nothing helped. I tried safe mode and the problem still exists. I have used firefox for years and now may have to walk away. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I have tried updating to FF 14 two times, and every time I do, FF won't open at all. I'm back running 13 with no problems, but as soon as I update to 14, I have to uninstall FF and reinstall 13 and not update. But I need to update, most of my add-ons aren't compatible with 13, they say and I don't want to be vulnerable to any security problems.

It can't be my profile because it works fine with 13. I turned off my security systems and it still won't open.

Any help????
