Hi,

I was wondering how to get a 64-bit version of Firefox, for Windows 7. An Internet search shows these as being available on a couple of website: http://www.windows7download.com/ http://www.firefox64bit.com/

I'm assuming that these are genuine, but I am confused as to why they are not available on the Mozilla website. I searched the support forum and found an answer that is a year old (http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/782154), indicating that a 64-bit version might be available after Firefox 12. Unless I'm confused about the versioning nomenclature being used, the latest version of Firefox is 24. Is there still not an official 64-but version of FIrefox available for Windows?

Thanks & regards, Ashok

My question is similar to "Java Plug-in for JRE7u21?" but all the suggestions there that worked are for Windows, and I'm on a Mac, and I don't want to hijack that thread. For the record, that thread is /questions/958847. aw

I have Mac OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion, Firefox 24.0, which says it's up to date, and Java 7 update 45, also up to date. I only want answers for Mac OS X, not Windows, not Linux.

The online Java test works OK in Safari but not in Firefox. Firefox thinks Java is not installed. There's no "Java Applet Plug-in" in the plug-ins list.

Since Safari is OK, I assume there's a bug in Firefox. Can we narrow it down by identifying which combinations of versions (of Mac OS X, Firefox and Java) have the Java plug-in and which don't?

Why has the function of my up & down arrow keys changed? Did I click something by accident? Help please?

(My new kitten *might* have stood on something on my keyboard - she's done that before & put Full Screen mode on, but I managed to fix that)

Normally, I scroll down a web page a bit at a time using the down arrow key on my laptop keyboard. Since yesterday, when I press the down arrow, the page jumps to the bottom (like pressing PageDown would do) and the up arrow jumps all the way back up.

How do I set it back so that it scrolls a bit whilst I press the key?

Firefox eating memory during regular browsing all the time

For the past several weeks I'm becoming increasingly aware of severe memory issues when using FF (currently FF30 32bit). No matter what I do, FF seems to keep allocating more memory to the point where it starts having severe issues and slowdowns, eventually crashing when the used memory reaches about 2.4GB, according to Windows Task manager (I'm running Win7 64 on 8GB of RAM). Currently, the whole process got so bad that it only takes several hours for FF to crash. I don't even have to use FF for this to happen - if I simply leave it running for two hours, when I come back, it's process is already using a few hundred MB of memory more.

I've tried disabling all of the add-ons. I've tried disabling all of the plugins, including Flash (which is always udated to latest version). I've tried the safe mode. I've even tried a clean profile. Nothing really changes much - some of my add-ons might have some influence on how fast FF eats the RAM and they certainly have visible impact on how much memory is used from the start, but even without any add-ons, the memory footprint of FF still gets bigger and bigger over time just by regular browsing.

I've also tried both installing FF28 with clean profile into clean directory - again, the same behaviour was observed, although it used less memory by default and its memory footprint was getting bigger slower than with FF30. I've also tried current nightlies (FF33a1), both 32bit and 64bit, again with a clean profile, installed into a separate new folder. Again, didn't really solve anything.

I also have a second separate Windows 8 install on my PC, so I've tried FF30 in this install as well, however, it behaves exactly the same. FF does this even under my Linux installation, so I really doubt it has something to do with my Win install.

Note that I've also tried running current Pale Moon, and while its allocated memory grows much slower than with FF, it still grows over time unexplicably, and as Pale Moon is based on FF code, I'd say this suggests there's some kind of issue there.

Also note that I usually have quite a few tabs open (around 50 is my average - and no, I don't want to use less tabs, before someone suggests that, I think any browser on current hardware should be able to handle 50 tabs without much issues, and pretty much any other browser is), but the same behaviour was observed even with under 10 tabs. I also always disable the delayed tab loading, meaning that all of my tabs load at browser startup, not just after I click on them, so my starting memory footprint with all of my tabs and add-ons is around 1.4GB (1.1 in Pale Moon), which probably means I'm seeing this issue manifest faster than many other would. I'm fine with the memory it eats at startup and with the slower startup. I would even be fine with my browser taking up 2 gigs of RAM (I've got 8GB of RAM for a reason), as long as it doesn't keep on allocating more and more memory without it ever going back down, even when I close several tabs.

Finally, it might be interesting to note that the memory measurements at about:memory grow much slower than the allocated memory reported by Task manager - meaning that quite often, FF memory measurement says it's using 1395MB RAM, while in Windows Taks manager, the Firefox32 process is reported as already taking up e.g. 1.8-2.0GB of RAM, and around 1500MB RAM in FF can equal to 2.2-2.4GB in Task Manager (meaning it's pretty close to FF crashing). And the "Free memory" buttons in about:memory seem to have no effect on the allocated memory, reported in Task manager (even though they do have some minor effect on used memory reported by FF itself there).

I don't really expect much help, I think I've already tried pretty much everything there was to try and for the time being it seems to me using Pale Moon is my only option right now, as in it the memory issues are at least somehow manageable and not as annoying as in classic FF, but I still thought I might post this here, if perhaps only for someone to take notice.

My Firefox is completely unresponsive. I can't get a browser or anything. I just grabbed the application folder and threw it in the trash, because the add/remove program function did nothing. I also cannot download the newest version of Firefox. It tries, but then says, "Your download was interrupted".

How can I make sure I've removed ALL of the old Firefox and what can I do to download the new one?

Over the weekend, Yahoo has somehow been made my default homepage. When I go to Preferences and change it to my desired homepage, it only works for the next launch - then it reverts back to Yahoo. So I uninstalled Firefox and downloaded a new copy. Same thing, so apparently it's a moderation you have made to your browser.

I do not like this. If you don't tell me how to permanently remove Yahoo as my default page, and allow me to PERMANENTLY decide for myself what my default homepage is, I will stop using Firefox altogether, even if it until now has been my favorite browser.

For several months now, Firefox has been crashing at random times. I have been ignoring it for the most part, but it has been happening more frequently the last few days, so I want to finally try to figure out what's going on. I assume it has to do with add-on/extension conflicts, but if so, I don't know which ones and I have no idea how to read the crash reports. I have tried updating Firefox (as well as my add-ons and plug-ins) a few times, but it hasn't helped. And as far as I can tell, there doesn't seem to be anything specific that triggers the crashes. Sometimes it will happen when I go to a Youtube link and sometimes it will happen when I'm in the middle of reading plain text. And sometimes it happens when I'm not doing anything at all.

I'm currently using Firefox 24.0 on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. I run malware scans regularly with MBAM and SUPERAntiSpyware, neither of which have turned up anything malicious in the recent past. Here are my 5 latest crash reports:

Crash ID: bp-50ab1ac1-15de-440c-8470-7b74a2141006 Crash ID: bp-62d19aa7-ac6d-4b37-a917-8c7422141006 Crash ID: bp-94865f73-d8f6-4dc2-a58e-4e4972141003 Crash ID: bp-ce3b2a65-ee86-4b1e-88a6-2d8752141001 Crash ID: bp-6aa03c14-30ab-4b1a-ac82-04ede2140928

Hello,

I've been having a problem with HTML5 video playing in firefox when hosted on GoDaddy. I'm almost positive that this is a server side issue but GoDaddy doesn't have the technical support to give me any more solutions than what they have repeatedly suggested. Here is the link to the index page I am having problems with:

http://gerardtonti.com/CV/index.html There is a video that plays above my name. You can see this in other browsers. The HTML for the video is this:

<video width="220px" height="227px" autoplay>
    		    <source type="video/mp4" src="http://www.gerardtonti.com/CV/img/Sneeze.mp4">
                    <source type="video/ogv" src="http://www.gerardtonti.com/CV/img/Sneeze.ogv">
                    <source type="video/webm" src="http://www.gerardtonti.com/CV/img/Sneeze.webm">
 </video>

GoDaddy has suggested creating an htaccess file that contains the following code:

AddType video/mp4 .mp4 .m4v
AddType video/ogg .ogv
AddType video/webm .webm

I have uploaded the htaccess file with this code and nothing happened. I've placed the file in the root and in the folder that contains the videos. Still nothing. I have had this problem with another client who hosts on GoDaddy as well. Is there a solution to this problem?

Thanks!

Gerard

Hello, Sometime ago I suddenly realized that JavaScript was not working in my Firefox. I get a very explicit error message from Stack Overflow:

"Stack Overflow requires external JavaScript from another domain, which is blocked or failed to load."

Many other websites also do not work.

I currently am running Windows 7 and on typing "java -version", I get the following output:

java version "1.7.0_40" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_40-b43) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.0-b56, mixed mode)

I know Java is installed and working because I can compile and run .java files from NetBeans.

I am in a fix as I have spent many hours troubleshooting this problem but could not solve it. I am very hopeful for a solution here.

Thanks

This question was probably asked before, but I guess it's important to keep asking so that the developers will realize that this is actually important.

I'm running a 64-bit Windows 7 for a few years now. I'm not sure if they even make 32-bit processors anymore. Any new PC you see advertised comes with Windows 8 64-bit. Both versions of Windows come with 64-bit IE. To be honest, the 32-bit IE is not only included, but is also default, but this is for the sake of backward compatibility. Opera is available in 64 bit, and so is Firefox, but only for Linux and Mac OS.

So where's the 64-bit Firefox for Windows? For years we've been hearing about plugins. Now, both Flash and Java are available in 64-bit. 64-bit Nightly works perfectly, I run it for years without any problem. Third-party builds also exist and work fine. So why not make an effort and promote the 64-bit Nightly higher up the production chain?

Sometimes we hear about "other priorities". But let's be honest here - what other priorities? I'm not sure why would I care about HTML5 - YouTube already works, and I don't see why should I care if it's in Flash or HTML5. Same about most other "cutting edge" features. I don't think I notice them. But I do notice that I have to run a 32-bit application on a 64-bit machine. Some people ask - what's the advantage of using 64-bit Firefox? I ask, why should I run a 32-bit application on a 64-bit machine? Just because it works? That's just not good enough.

So, enough with the excuses, just do it! That's what people are waiting for, not the "Firefox OS" (now why would I buy anything from a "proudly non-profit" company?)!
