I will not use Firefox 29 or newer until the crappy interface introduced in v29 it made user friendly, and bring back certain missing thing from v28 (they may be profile holdovers from a much older version), no the classic theme restorer does not bring them back. The above is here simply to try and stop suggestions about using v29

I have tried going into options menu Firefox>Options>Advanced>Never Check for Updates, but that does not prevent updates. I have had to uninstall Firefox 29 5 times today every time after telling it to "Never check for updates."

(I had intended to reply to another thread on this topic but Mozilla Support forces you to start a new thread in order to register)

When Firefox Starts: show my windows and tabs from last time.

No setting change - either in Preferences or in about:config - changes the behaviour of Firefox to restore tabs from previous sessions.

Options I have seen suggested:

  • Create a new profile to test it out
  • Uninstall Firefox and reinstall
  • Delete sessionstore (?) files in your profile folder

From the time I updated the 28 version of Firefox a couple days ago, every time I write a link on the toolbar and press "go to the address" or the enter button, it refuses to load anything and just stays where it is. Unless I go through search and find the site I want or my saved links/tabs. Also I realized that that the copy/paste button of plain text, has disappeared and it only works on the toolbar.

April 7 I wanted to download a free book from a Google search (Concluding Unscientific Postscript by Soren Kierkegaard) in PDF format, in following the prompts I wound up with a homepage called Genieo. It has a clickable "Remove Genieo" but requested your Mac password to proceed. Alarmed, I backed out at that point! I turned off wi-fi and was able to delete it from my Applications folder, and do a secure empty trash, but it continues to exist and come up as my browser home page. I don't use it, but want to get rid of it. THANKS!

I noticed that this problem doesn't occur in version 28 of Firefox. For some reason when I try to go to Netflix, I can login but I can't play any videos without getting an 2103 error message with Silverlight. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both 64bit and 32bit versions of Silverlight 5. It worked last night, but for some reason it won't work at all. So I've went back to version 28 of FIrefox and the problem is gone. I also want to note that this problem isn't happening with Chrome or IE11.

All I ever get is that the flashplayer has stopped and windows is searching for a solution..... I also did the firefox reset which did not work. Is this fixable or do I need to purchase a new modem????

Open a Telnet link with Firefox and bad things can happen

I happened to come across a site with a number of links, and the one I chose happened to be a telnet link. Here was my experience, and I had to put myself into the shoes of the average user who knows nothing about programming.

The link that caused Firefox trouble when Firefox was chosen to run it is this: telnet://dxc.nc7j.com:7300

Click on the link and Firefox tells you that you need to select a program to open the Internet Shortcut Shell extension DLL. I have never heard of this, and I have no idea what to do here.

Choose to open with Firefox.

Now, if some error-handling routine had caught that Firefox, which is not capable of doing Telnet, was selected by the unknowing person behind the keyboard to go ahead and do Telnet, the error-handler would advise the user to the fact that this protocol is not supported and kill the process that is going to run out-of-control otherwise. Or cause to open the program that will run the Telnet session.

Better yet, I clicked on the Telnet link and offer a better description of the choices.

After all of what happened below, I installed Iron, a Chromium-based browser, and it opened a Telnet session window right away.

So what did happen, I clicked on Firefox to do this chore and was greeted by a never-ending opening of empty tabs and upon closing the browser, it relaunched and was off to the races again. And again.

OK so this ain't getting us anywhere.

Firefox opens once again, this time hit the big red X to close it, and let the prompt to close however many tabs anyway prompt sitting there.

I chose to run CCleaner, and I set that to blow away Firefox Cache and session. Run CCleaner, and tell it to force Firefox closed when it prompts that Firefox is open.

If by chance Firefox launches again, timing was perfect that the file that was causing Firefox to open was not yet cleaned, so run the CCleaner again a few times. When Firefox is no longer opening, we are back to the world of sanity.

Now, I could go in and reset the Tools Options Applications tab and look for Telnet, and replace the use of Firefox with "ask me."


Fortunately, I know a little more than some about the computer, and I knew I had to use a utility to clear out the Firefox cache.

You have a description of the issue in your knowledgebase, but it has Firefox opening endless empty tabs, but Firefox was closed and the situation is under control.. Restart Firefox manually, start a new session and then enter the Tools menu and fix the setting.

There is a knowledge base article on this very topic, but it has the user close Firefox and then all is back to normal. One can open Firefox and get into the menu to fix the issue. There was a mention in there about malware as a possible cause of the constant reopening I experienced, but Malwarebytes scans were clean.

"Well, this is embarrassing!" I have seen that nice touch to Firefox for many years, and may I compliment those who thought of that one.

This isn't so much a question as a contribution of solution.

On a new computer running Windows 8.1 a new installation of Firefox 28 was repeatedly crashing or freezing ("no response"). Loading pages could be slow, and scrolling jagged. Totally unusable, especially after playing content with Shockwave.

Although I had not installed any plugins apart from Shockwave and Adobe Acrobat, I had a look and was surprised to see several that I had never asked for. I deactivated those I do not think I need: Intel Identity Protection Technology Photo Gallery WildTangent Games App V2 Presence Detector.

Since deactivating these, Firefox is running fine. But I had been obliged to use another navigator for a week until finding the time to research the problem.

Why are these unasked-for and obviously (for at least one) troublesome plug-ins installed by default? It's not doing Firefox any good!
