I am running Firefox (always the latest non-beta) in Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. I ALWAYS run with add-ons disabled. After a while (depending upon my usage of FF), but usually every day or every other day, FF becomes "non-responding". I have no idea what that term means in MS WIndows terms. When this happens, FF begins using up to 50% of the CPU, and is using 1.4 Gb of private space. When this happens sometimes the software will allow me to click "Exit" to terminate FF. Other times Windows will not allow me to click "Exit, andI have to use the Task Manager to cancel the firefox,.exe process. And, more times that not, when I am able to click Exit, Firefox takes a few minutes terminating before it crashes and gives me the option to cancel FF or restart it. I always send the dump to Mozilla. I have not looked at the recent crash reports.
This happened this morning about 15 minutes ago, and FF is behaving properly now. But it is already using 1.1 Gb of private space. i do not know if this private space usage is related to the problem. I do have11 FF windows in my current setup, as I use a different window for each project on which I am working. But so far I have only accessed two of the windows since the restart. I assume, that based on my projected usage of FF today, by tomorrow morning FF will have crashed by itself or I will have to Exit and restart.
What is happening? In MS terms, what is happening when a process becomes "non-responsive"? Is there some resource shortage that causes this? And when this happens, how can I debug FF and get more diagnostics? My records show that this has been occurring for over a year. Thanks.

Hi, Firefox repetitvely and seemingly randomly crashes. Almost 60 crashes in 1 mth of usage... This is only the "visible part of the iceberg" though, since I've changed just everything, my internet connection, my WiFi key, my GPU, up to my OS and my PC, nothing seem to solve this, even switching browser (sorry) or using older versions of Firefox doesn't help since those also crash as well.
I uploaded my entire about:crashes page -to date- there: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=79134913395586749201 (also a screenshot of the page is attached) The most recent one is: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/1aba5f95-753c-4fea-9857-662e02160625
Weird and worth mentionning, I think, is that the problem seems to sometimes disappear, I've not experienced any problem for almost one month,(after I changed my WiFi key) as you can see on the uploaded page, then it's pretty every 5 minutes - sometimes Firefox can't be even launched again after a crash, and I need to reboot the PC. In a couple occurences, I even encountered BSOD – not sure weather they really have a connection but anyway, so far I've got those only while browsing the Web, as far as I can recall. These are mostly about Memory Management into the Kernel; I also uploaded a list here: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=91555958203709593743
I'm just too tired of that now and I really hope a solution can eventually be found. Thanks.

My issue with the download arrow only occurs 3/4 of the time. May be dependent on amount of tabs open (20 max)
Last month, the only issue with mozilla was if I had 10+ tabs open, there would be some artifacts at the top of the window above and on the tabs themselves. This would go away when I minimized mozilla and brought it back up. After a fresh OS install when I got a new SSD about 3 weeks ago, I noticed that along with the tab issue, the animated download arrow would freeze on the last frame of the animation. When I mouse over the bookmarks/buttons around it, the frozen bits disappear but only over the things that have changed (highlighted buttons when moused over etc). In the process of getting a replacement SSD due to a defective first one, I have reinstalled windows about 4-5 times now, each time with this issue. The first time, everything was up to date including windows. Windows refuses to find any updates until about 4 days after a reformat, so currently I am out of date. But since my issue occurred when I was up to date, I assume this is a bug with mozilla itself. The fact that when I was running an older version of mozilla before my first reformat, I didn't have the issue, makes me think this as well. I also noticed today that the animated heart when pressing the like button on tumblr does the same thing, floats up and freezes on the last frame of animation as seen here: http://puu.sh/pyxgx/198461de3b.png
Also, when I open mozilla, or close/open a new tab, there are black lines that are grouped close together near the bottom of my screen for a split second that were not there with my old version. I can live with those, just thought I'd mention them in case they help diagnose my problem.
To test that it IS an issue with the recent mozilla update, is there any way to install an old version of mozilla without the installer finding the new versions online and forcing me to use those?

OK - I have searched and Googled.
This happens with FF 46 32 bit, 64 bit, portable, on Win 7 32 bit, 64 bit and windows 10. It happen in safe mode. It has all plugins up to date. I t has remove all but needed and non removable add ins - such as Flash, Acrobat Reader, etc. It happens on computers with plenty of RAM (16 GB). Oddly enough, it happens worse with safe mode and plugin container is run-a-way. With normal mode, it appears that plugin container is under control and Firefox itself runs amuck.
So - totally repeatable. Page down in Firefox with one or 50 tabs open - no matter. It will crash. Goes black, or stops responding. Until Firefox closes. NEVER happens with Edge for example.
I have to think it is a Firefox memory leak, but even using Firemin does not help much if at all.
What can be done? I have done my homework!

More info, of course. End of my rope on this one....

When I am trying to login to a public wifi hotspot, say like at a hotel, Firefox is preventing the redirect to the wifi login page associated with that particular access point. Firefox is throwing "Your connection is not secure" error with the following The owner of www.anysite.com has configured their website improperly. I would imagine this is happening because when I start Firefox it wants to go to my homepage, however, the wifi access point want me to be redirected to the login page. Without the redirect, I cannot login to the wifi and get access to the internet. How do I correct this? This only started with latest Firefox update.

After updating to Firefox 47.0 my browser doesn't keep the position and size of original window on the next launch. This issue happens when i set layout.css.devPixelsPerPx value to 1 (if i choose to not restore tabs and just open homepage the window keeps position and size). I have tried with my original profile and with a new profile after a firefox reinstall and the two have the same behavior.
