I'm observing very sluggish performance in Firefox on my Surface Pro using Windows 8.1 RTM. I can't quite track down what's going on, but some startups take as much as 10-12 seconds. Additionally, the overall browser performance is sluggish.

I've tried running in Safe Mode and it's still quite slow.

Hi,

I am unable to install extensions, they show up with "will be installed after you restart Firefox" even after I restart.

The "Staged" folder is present and remains after a restart, but the extensions do not get installed. They show in the extensions page with the "will be installed after you restart Firefox" message and remain like this no matter how many times I restart.

Any Idea's?

Running Firefox 24.0 on Windows 8.1

Many Thanks, BD

P.S. Just tried to install the "troubleshooter" add-on before posting the question and I got an error saying it cannot install because it cannot modify the needed file. (I did it manually instead)

Hi there, I get an egg timer cursor indefinitely (I left it for at least half an hour yesterday), whenever I try to "save image as" or download an installer, (for example update an add-on such as Silverlight.) Uploading images to Facebook (as in status updates) result in the same problem.

Task manager has this as not responding. Error is hungapp.

Have reinstalled Firefox, restarted addons, removed extentions in order to figure this out. Other browsers DO allow me to download/upload but both Opera and Chrome (pretty much the only options open to XP) will not allow me to get on facebook due to certificate errors, so that's out of the question entirely.

Firefox 36.0.1 on Win XP, service pack 3 (2003).

Many thanks for any help.

I've recently installed windows 8 on a VHD (my main OS is Windows 7) and I was wondering if it was possible to share the same firefox profile on both operating systems. I have the profile manager from ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/utilities/profilemanager/, but when I tried to make a new profile at the location of my main profile, it instead made a subdirectory under my main profile. Is there anything I can do to share the profile between the two? I could always use sync, but I would like to share my addons, if possible.

Hi - I'm using Firefox v. 24, which I believe is the latest version and since I use automatic updates, I believe that my system is up to date. The problem that I'm having on my Windows 8.1 Preview system (Thinkpad X1 Carbon Touch) and I can't get FireFox to show 100 Gmail lines as a setting that sticks. Every day I try to fix it, but at the next boot-up, it just goes back to 20. Very frustrating!! I haven't had this problem before installing v.24. Any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks!!! SS

I am using Firefox stable version 24 on Windows 8.1 (RTM).

I would like to clear all cookies upon exit of Firefox, except for those sites specified in the exceptions list. When I add websites to the exceptions list they are saved until I restart firefox, at which point the exceptions list becomes empty again.

I have tried to play around with the about:permissions page, but the list of websites on the left is also empty despite me having visited numerous websites in the current browsing session.

Any help would be appreciated.

negotiating the screen changes just to ask a simple question took me through 9 screen changes already!!! why the "screen testing"? I am not trying to get a part in a movie. Simply, when I checked "help", "forum",and now prompted to ask this as a "new" question although I saw in forums 450 or so users complained that their FF4 was not compatible as the last version of 3 was. Without taking 6 hours of searching 25 more screen changes: simply does anyone know if this will crash/hang/send error pages or damage our PC's to have FF5 and this TM security add-on together? thank you for your consideration of my question, and I apologize if my fonts show up on your side and are bothersome. I need them for my vision impairment

Win8Consumer Preview Nvidia probs

I have two desktop PCs with identical MOBOs and processors running Win8CP, one has an NVIDIA GT220 graphics card and is on WiFI, the other is on integrated AMD 3000 graphics and wired connection.

The one with NVidia card shows odd artifacts around the close/minimise/maximise gadgets top right in Firefox (actually fragments from elsewhere on the display window) and also oddities in tab colouring with the same prog and also odd tab colour behaviour when mousing over certain areas of some websites (eg gmail). The other machine seems rock solid.

Other programs seem to run fine, inc. Opera, IE10 and Chrome running gmail.

I suspect the NVIDIA drivers or how firefox is coded.

1 Is this a known problem?

2 what further information might help resolve the problem?

3 Does anyone know of if there likely to be any further driver release?

4 Any other suggestions welcome.

Best Regards, George

For reference the mobo is ASUSTeK Computer INC. M3A76-CM

I noticed Foxit Reader Plugin throws a lot errors on some pages about PDF document, even though there's none. First I saw this problem on amazon.com. There's no errors on main page, but when I choose any item it throws around 5 errors. Today I noticed similar happens in my hotmail account. When I try to view inbox it throws 8 error dialogs, also page doesn't work in general; can't view emails, navigate folders (just nothing happens if I click). Is there a way to fix this?
