On the evening of April 28th, I attempted to open Firefox, and it notified me that it was updating itself. Once the update was complete, I was able to launch it. I did notice that it had some minor issues (getting stuck "looking up" web pages, even when other browsers worked fine), but those same issues had occurred before.
My current problem is that Firefox will not load ANY pages, including any Mozilla help pages. This first started happening after I used Windows Update to upgrade the .NET Framework to version 4.6.1 (KB3102433). After my system restarted, I noticed that Firefox couldn't connect to any website (doesn't even say "looking up" or "connecting" in the bottom right hand corner of the screen, just tries to connect indefinitely), and that my antivirus program (McAfee LiveSafe) couldn't connect to the internet for automatic updates. Other programs such as Steam and Internet Explorer had no issues.
My first step to try and fix this was to roll my system back to the restore point just before I upgraded to .NET Framework 4.6.1. My system went back to .NET Framework 4.5.2. This did not fix the problem. Firefox and McAfee LiveSafe still couldn't connect to the internet. I also tried modifying my connection settings in Firefox. It was already set to auto detect proxy settings, which matched Internet Explorer's settings, so I made no changes. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, but that didn't work. Oddly enough, this DID work for McAfee LiveSafe. After I reinstalled LiveSafe, it was able to connect to the internet.
I've tried starting Firefox in Safe Mode, as well as refreshing it. The problem persists. Firefox isn't being blocked by a firewall (checked Windows Firewall and McAfee's firewall). I even tried turning off all firewalls to see if Firefox would work. It still doesn't work. I haven't downloaded any new add-ons for Firefox recently, other than an add on from McAfee LiveSafe that was added on after Firefox started having problems (when I had to reinstall LiveSafe). I'm at a loss as to what exactly is causing this issue with Firefox, and what further steps I need to take to fix it.
It's worth noting that every time I have to close Firefox (after seeing if it will function correctly), the Mozilla Crash Reporter pops up after a short period. It's odd that it pops up, since I close Firefox normally each time I need to. The Mozilla Crash Reporter has successfully sent the crash report every time, which is interesting. I'm not sure how the actual browser doesn't work, but the crash reporter can connect with no issues.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Mozilla Firefox (45.0.2) keeps running my laptop fan continuously: as soon I start the soft fan switches on, and vice versa. CPU usage is normal, memory usage is normal. Hardware acceleration is off. Graphic driver is up to date. (my system: win 7, i3, 8 GB RAM, Lenovo E330, Intel HD Graphics 4000)
I have changed my old HDD to SSD to have some silence, and now the fan... it drives me nuts :)
Any idea, pleas?

I have a dual monitor setup, with two browsers open in each monitor. Typically one browser in the second monitor has open various tabs such as Facebook, Streaming audio/video such as youtube or netflix, gmail, and other content.
In my main monitor I will have open what I am actively engaged in in the browser such aas a web forum like spiceworks. If I try to refresh the page with either F5 or FF refresh button, Firefox freezes, video or audio stops in the second monitor, and my computer becomes slow to respond. It last for about 10 or so seconds, then the page comes up and the video resumes. This has been happening since FF 46 push.

Firefox has been running slow upon opening and slow upon closing .( Hanging; with up to 500k in memory. To close now I must end task via the Task manager. it is so bad I must use "the other guys" browser that begins with "I" and ends with "R" in order to contact you.
The following, are solutions I have tried.
Safe mode disabled add-ons and plugins removed cookies, session, places, SQLite files among others as suggested deleted old profiles; created new profiles re-installed, fresh installs of various versions * after removing all traces of FF on the system run various virus, malware checks *including Microsoft, Malware Bytes, Trend Micro (full system online scan which took hours to complete). replaced the Time Warner Cable Modem Tried with and without add-ons directly connected from the Modem to the Computer bypassing my router. spent hours trouble shooting using various recommendations and suggestions via the internet and this forum to no avail. and have accomplished nothing accept make the situation worse.
its a miracle if I can get FF to start even in safe mode .
I am handicapping you I am sure since I am unable to provide more trouble shooting information. I don't know how to get it from FF into IE. for that I apologize. Currently using
windows 7 home sp1 64-bit I7 3770 16.0 gig RAM
FF Ver. 41.0.2 yes I know it is a tad older but the problems remain regardless of version.
I am lost, old, and tired after having spent countless hours on this and not being to familiar with Forums, I am begging for help and thanking you in advance for it.

I recently upgraded OS from Vista to Win 7 Enterprise (like Pro); I added 4 Gb of RAM at the same time for a total of 6. I am using a Thinkpad T500 with 64-bit duoprocessor. My Firefox is current.
Seems I am having issues with GMail alone - at least Firefox only crashes using GMail when I am writing a new message! It happens frequently after about 60-90" of typing. I either get a Firefox crash report box, nothing, or an OS message that says: "The instruction at 0x77e1e43e referenced memory at 0x0eeaa8e8. The memory could not be read. " Sometimes the referenced numbers differ eg 0x77e2ba86 and 0x00000024
Any suggestions gratefulyl received & appreciated as this is very frustrating/annoying! At least GMail usually saves what I am drafting.

When browsing on some websites, FireFox will become totally unresponsive and will, on occasion display a dialogue that gives the options to continue running a script, debugging a script or stopping a script. In all most all instances selecting the stop script fails to do so and Firefox remains in an unresponsive state and in some cases the FF thread must be killed in task manager in order to recover.
During the recovery process one must quickly stop the offending website before it has a chance to run the script again or you must again, stop FF from running using Task Manager.
Mozilla please fix this issue and prevent wayward scripts from locking up FF. This issue was resolved in earlier versions but it has returned in this version 46.0 and the previous version of FF.
I would welcome any comments and effective solutions for this issue.

My printer no longer will communicate with my computer. Now when I try to print something it just says to connect the printer. It is connected. The printer itself works fine but will not copy from the computer any longer. In my Moxilla profile folder it shows the printer name many times (I think this means when it was trying to work??). It is a Dell 968w All-in-one printer.
Thanks, I hope you can help me as I need this printer. I would be afraid to buy a new one and have the same thing happen. It was working fine and does not seem to be broken.

Notes: This is only affecting a single site (as far as I can tell), feedly.com, on a single computer (my desktop). Firefox works normally on my laptop (which is set up the same as my desktop, same extensions and everything), and it works fine in chrome on my desktop too. Also, this is a basically new install of Windows 7 (since the end of Feb.).
The issue is that, whenever I try to save an image from that site, it always names it as "unnamed"+whatever the file type is. All the images have filenames, but something is changing them. As I said above, it works normally elsewhere. This is not the first issue I've had with firefox and this website since this new Windows install. At first, feedly wouldn't show any images (just empty boxes); however, this was fixed by simply doing a clean reinstall of firefox. Given that I was playing catch-up with a bunch of stuff after having to reinstall everything on my desktop, I'm not exactly sure when the whole filename thing started. I know it has been several weeks though, I've just been ignoring looking into the issue until now cause I was busy.
I tried another clean reinstall of firefox yesterday, and it worked (filenames were back to normal)... until I tired restoring my bookmarks and a few of my essential addons (like Tab Mix Plus). So, I tried another clean reinstall to see if it was the addons or something, but this time it started right away with the "unnamed" stuff - so, not an extensions issue. I tried clean reinstalled a few more times with different versions and such, a couple times filenames were restored, but then later reverted to "unnamed" upon trying to install/restore other things as above; mostly it just started with "unnamed" - so, not a version issue.
Since feedly works properly elsewhere and since it does work, even if only momentarily, on some reinstalls, I can only assume that something within firefox is not giving the right permissions or something to cause this to happen. Any help in fixing this would be most appreciated.
This doesn't happen on Microsoft Edge, and I set Firefox to auto detect proxy settings, and disabled the IPv6, yet it still doesn't load pages

I installed new version 46.0 today and immediately had problems.
I have an add-on that allows me to save a Web Page as MHT/Maff which is set to use the file name from the web page. Now, it's always blank and I have to fill in the name.
Worse, when I try to "Save as" files and images, there is no pop-up to pick a file location to save too.
I've already seen people raising these same issues.
Please fix this, or revert back to the prior working version.

I've been having this problem for almost 7 months now. Firefox stops playing videos and GIFs on random (on Youtube, Facebook etc.). All I see is just the 'buffering' icon circling.
Videos start working normally again when I restart the browser (do shift+F2 -> type "restart" -> enter). But the issue comes back again usually within hours. Sometimes it even happens midway through the video - the rest of the video or any other video simply won't play until I restart the browser.
One observation I've made is, around 90% of the time when this happens, 'Supports Hardware H264 Decoding' field in about:support says 'No; Too many DXVA videos playing'.
I have tried the following and none of them seem to work: - Refreshing profile - Uninstall, delete profile folder, reinstall - Disable hardware acceleration - the problem was observed even while it was disabled - Update graphics card drivers to latest versions, both Intel and Nvidia
Only addon I have installed is adblock plus.

I've had this issue before and I believe I solved it by restarting my computer last time. That will likely fix it again, but that should be necessary.
Anyway, so as I stated I can no longer use the mouse to drag the Firefox window around the screen, nor can I double click the top of the window to maximize or unmaximize it. The buttons in the right corner still work.
Firefox briefly lets me move the window around when it first starts, but after a few seconds it will go back to not letting me move it around.
I have already tried all solution I could find, such as safe mode, no addons, enabling the menu bar, etc.
