Previously this seemed to driven by an addin which I removed. Now each time Firefox updates itself every 1-2 days this problem reappears without the original addin. Because the chinese characters float over the top of the tab name it makes it difficult to read the tab name is is plain irritating.

Hello I have a bunch of tabs, and some of them get periodically replaced with some javascript code? I'm not sure, but i did find a few people that have exactly the same problem:

And further this:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Internet_Email/Web_Browsers/Q_28246484.html

Now ,my pc is windows 7 ,running whatever the last version (always up to date) of firefox was at the time (a few months ago it started and then happened a few times)

I still have the tabs sitting like there like that , and would appreciate if there's a solution. I would like a solution to prevent it from happening again and i want to understand what the meaning of the code is and if there's somewhere within it that i can find the lost webpages.

Thank you

After deleting prefs.js file Firefox does not create a new one.

Firefox does not save any of my settings so i tried all the method described in the following articles:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save#w_unable-to-save-any-preferences-or-settings

finally I uninstalled FF completely, deleted the FF installation directory and moved my old profile. Reinstalling FF did not help in anyway. After reinstalling, the preferences were still not saved so I deleted the profs.js file. When I start Firefox it does not create a new profs.js file adn of course my setting are still not saved

What can i do? change? I'd rather fix this than install chrome instead...

After Firefox updated to 34.0, it suddenly started freezing up at inopportune times. Not always at the same point, nor at the same web site. I tried Google Chrome on the same sites Firefox would freeze and Chrome worked perfectly as did Internet Explorer 11. I also noted that it would only scroll part way then freeze, then scroll a bit more then freeze, so badly I could not view the page at http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2875544/How-escape-Alcatraz-Researchers-reveal-1962-escapees-presumed-dead-freedom.html. I tried this same page on Chrome and it worked perfectly. I did not have this problem prior to the latest update. Please also note that Firefox 34.0 may work fine for a day or so then start the freezing again. I tried Safe mode and could not get the freeze problem to duplicate. But like I said, sometimes it works fine then others not. I will try to remember to run Problem Step Recorder the next time it starts freezing. I also installed Troubleshooter as per below. I just tried the above page link and recorded it with Problem Step Recorder. It froze up loading but then started working again. Previously, it would show a Not Repsonding message in the top bar of Firefox. It did not this time.

When loading certain websites, Firefox freezes for 10 to 30 seconds. When this occurs, the entire operating system is unresponsive. One website it almost always happens on is the Comcast TV schedule site I use: http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/tv-listings It happens with some regularity on facebook.com as well. Once the problem has occurred, it does not recur until the next session.

After the latest Firefox update (34.0.5), I can't get Silverlight to work on Netflix. I get a black screen with no error codes.

Netflix has a checklist of things to do if you get a black screen (https://help.netflix.com/en/node/95), and I've done all of these things several times -- manually removing Netflix cookies, uninstalling and reinstalling Silverlight (and I used a Fix-It app on the Microsoft website to troubleshoot), disabling ad blockers and virus software, and scanning for malware. I've done all of these things, and nothing has helped. I can play Netflix videos in Chrome, but I think there's no reason why I shouldn't be able to use my preferred browser, especially since I was able to do it without incident up until Wednesday night.

I had two chats with Netflix tech support. Neither were much help, but the second person suggested that I uninstall Firefox entirely and then reinstall. I don't really want to do that. I'm not really that tech-y, and I'm afraid of losing my settings. Honestly, I would cancel Netflix before doing that.

Has anybody else had this problem? Are there any OTHER workarounds or suggestions of what I can try to fix this problem? Also, is it possible to be prompted when there's a new Firefox update.. and not have it automatically updated without my permission? I can't, by any chance, roll back to the version when everything worked fine?

Having issues with saving and history

"Save Link as" isn't working at all. When I try it, either nothing happens at all, or when something does happen, I can't save a file. When something does happen and the folder location where I'm trying to save it opens, it just says "dwn" in the filename box. And I can't save anything I try to save.

And when I "left click" when trying to save something, it just says "connecting..." and after a couple minutes, it will let me save the file I'm attempting to save. But if what I'm trying to save a file and the link has a limit, it always expires before I get to save it.

I've tried Safe Mode, restarting Firefox to factory state, I've uninstalled it completely and reinstalled it, cleared history, cache, and cookies, but nothing has worked.

And also when I cleared the history, my address bar wasn't cleared at all.

Please help me with this, it's getting really frustrating.

As of midnight 12/12/14, Firefox started blocking plugins (in this case, Adobe Flash and Java Deployment Toolkit, possibly others as I've just been to websites that use those), saying that they're out of date. When I click on "Update Now," the Plugin Status page tells me that all my plugins are up to date. (I'm currently running Flash 15.0.0.239 and Java Deployment Toolkit 10.71.2.14, for the record.)

I get the point of this feature, and I really don't want to permanently turn on "always allow," but having to click two "allow" prompts every time I load a website that features Flash is quickly making web browsing intolerable. I'm on the verge of switching to Google Chrome over this.

Nothing seems to work. Any ideas? Thanks a bunch.

I have dealt with this for years. I have "reset" Firefox numerous times, I have uninstalled Adobe Flash and reinstalled version 16.0.0.235. After I uninstalled and updated it ran for a while but I am back to the "Flash is busy" message. The only way I can go on is to stop the plug in, or disable it, but of course then I have no video. I installed "Videowithoutflash" (I think that was the name of it listed with Firefox extension and highly reviewed, and it all ran fine for about a day. But then the next day no videos would play unless I enabled flash, and then it soon starts crashing again. This is a problem for years now. I have been through many forums trying to find an answer, nothing works, or if it does not for long. Is there not some way to get rid of Adobe Flash and play videos? Are there any browsers that don't use flash for viewing videos? Help! Thanks in advance Bill

Until the most recent update the dropdown listing of available sites in the search box was easily legible and simple to use. Being able to target one's searches so readily and conveniently was one of Firefox's most attractive features.

Now I'm confronted with a panel of mostly indecipherable and in many cases confusingly similar icons. I hate it and want my simple verbal listing back!

Yes, mousing over the icons and hovering will reveal what they represent. But having to do this every time makes what was a quick, convenient routine irritatingly slow and clunky.

Please at least let us choose whether to have icons or a simple listing. Please...

Text is being cut off on websites.

I just noticed this problem and so far it's only happening with my school's website. I assume this is because of the latest update. See this link: http://catalog.uab.edu/undergraduate/collegeofartsciences/psychology/#courseinventory The text becomes cut off at PY 390. (The last class that should be displayed is PY 499.) This happens on every single page that lists each major's courses (Here's another example: http://catalog.uab.edu/undergraduate/collegeofartsciences/justicesciences/#courseinventory). Only the tabs that display courses are affected, so I assume this probably has to do with page length?

From what I can tell this is a text issue with Firefox - when I zoom out, I can see that all the text is still there, but Firefox is cutting it off for some reason (tested this in Chrome and it's true - I can see everything fine in it). But obviously that's not practical and would likely cause eye issues.
