This has been going on for awhile, I've made posts about similar issues but I have yet to hear anything. My Firefox is "broken" I guess that would be the perfect term for, At least my Firefox. I experience slowdowns on all webpages, it crashes, it freezes, I get what seems like an unlimited amount of "Unresponsive scripts" which forces me to use task manager to end the Firefox process because waiting for it to debug itself or letting the script load does nothing at all. Even the great check-able "Do not remind me again box" does nothing, I don't even bother checking the box because if there's another unresponsive script, even though its the same error the notification pops up still.

Firefox's memory usage spikes from 500k-900k all the way to 2million, I have exited Firefox and have also tried to use the task manager to end the process when it spikes because Firefox is unusable when it gets that high. Even though when I completely exit out of the Firefox program and use task manager to end the process, If I start Firefox back up the memory usage will climb back to where it was which is usually around the 1.5mil range then from there it goes to as high as 2.3mil then just crashes on me.

This has been going on for awhile now and nothing seems to be worked on.

Hi, Since yesterday (August 19, 2016) Netflix stop working and I get a message at the top of the page saying "Firefox is installing components needed to play audio or video, please try again later". I just called Netflix support and they say that recently they stop using Silverlight and moved to HTML5, they advised me to update Firefox to the latest version, I was running on 47.0.1 but now after installing the update I'm running on 48.0.1 but still get the same error message. I can watch Netflix with Internet Explorer but not with Firefox anymore! For years was working fine I am wondering what's going on, can you help?

48.0.2 on Mountain Lion 10.8.5. Fullscreen video on the CNN site plays initially, then stops with a circling round arrow. Lately it has started to do this with that video on the side as you scroll down the screen, as well. Very maddening. No problems on other sites. If I cannot fix this quickly and simply I will have to go to Chrome. Updated flash yesterday, no joy. Suggestions welcome. Thank you

Running Windows 10 on HP Pavilion Desktop, Firefox stopped allowing any access to https pages 5 days ago. Constant immediate error messages, sometimes "Secure Connection Failed", sometimes "Connection timed out".

(I am posting this from an old Windows 7 Computer ( I can't from the Windows 10 one as I can't log in on it - no chance of syncing it).

I have Kapersky and contacted them and not Kapersky problem. Did clean resintalls of Firefox. No Joy. Tried old versions of Firefox. No Joy.

Hired a techie geek, they spent 8 hours trying to get it to work. We tried everything in this link plus more https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems


Really don't want to try a System Restore. Am I doomed to Chrome?

Have followed ALL suggestions from the web to remove this hijack with no luck. I then refreshed Firefox (v48.0) and even the default is still hijacked. Newtab always ends up with startgo123.com.

If I restart FF with all add-ons disabled, it's OK, but there are NO extensions or add-ons installed that I don't know about. All were installed by me some time ago.

Please help. I am going crazy trying to solve this.

No malware scans find this, no supposed programs to fix it can find it. Where can it be hiding?

Firefox crashes

Due to prior problems, I uninstalled and installed a new Firefox about a month ago. After that, I started getting error messages when I attempted to open the browser. (See attached image.) In the past week, Firefox has had more progressive problems. It started out with just a slow loading of pages, but this became prevalent with every page I attempted to load. I tried using the Refresh option, but this only lasts for about 20 minutes. I scanned my system with Super Antispyware, Malwarebytes and Norton 360 and removed all threats found. (Then I removed Malwarebytes to lower the number of security programs on my system.)

The crashes started about 3 days ago so I went to Support and tried to follow those steps. Nothing changed in Safe Mode. Nothing improved and in fact, things got worse. When I again uninstalled Firefox, I thought I was "wiping the slate clean", but this time, it reloaded what I'd have before. (The first time I uninstalled and re-installed, the new "copy" didn't have my bookmarks. Last night, when I re-installed, all the bookmarks were there.) Additionally, now there is a tiny red vertical line on each tab that I have open. It is to the right of the X to close the tab and appears with every tab I open. Also, since this second re-install, the browser keeps crashing. Last night, it gave me more than 6 chances to submit a crash report within a half hour. This morning, in the past 2.5 hours, I have submitted 4 crash reports. If you can't fix this, I'll have to use a different browser. I know that in this time frame, when I used Edge, there was only 1 crash report and when I've used Chrome, there have been none. I would prefer to use Firefox, but not if these situations are going to continue. At the present, the image that I want to upload regarding the error message mentioned in the first paragraph has still not loaded, but I'm going to submit this. I have no idea what will happen.

P.S. When I looked at your "educated guesses", I discovered that it said my OS was Windows 7. No! It's Windows 10.

My system has gone haywire after the Windows 10 Anniversary update. Videos on other sites work properly. I do have an HTML5 plugin.

The problem might not have anything to do with Firefox, but I would appreciate your opinion on this.

When I enter my username and password, I want to open a new protected Firefox instance but it just complains that it can't locate the profile. I am forced to select it to open in the same window. I am on Dell™ XPS™ L502X, Windows 10 64-Bit , and using Mozilla Firefox 48.0.2. In debugging this problem, I tried to verify the profile by using the Profiler and the add-on Open Profile Folder 1.3.3.1. It shows the correct profile folder but Mozilla Firefox 48.0.2 says it can't find the Profile folder, While it is there! The profile.ini is correct. This used to work for me. Thank you, ~sreyes27

I know this question has been asked multiple times and it usually ends in the solution: Some font rendering issues are caused by graphics driver incompatibilities. Could you try disabling Firefox's use of hardware graphics acceleration?

orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Options > Advanced

On the "General" mini-tab, uncheck the box for "Use hardware acceleration when available"


However my hardware acceleration has been disabled for a long time. I've had this problem for many months and every now and then it annoys me enough to search for solutions. I've tried increasing and changing the fonts in my Content Settings. I've uninstalled and reinstalled firefox. I've checked multiple websites fonts to see where it happens since it seems to pick and choose what sites it happens on. I've even cross checked sites on Google Chrome as well to verify that this only happens with Firefox.

This leads me to think there is a bigger problem/bug in play within Firefox's Rendering Engine, Gecko.

As has been the case with each new update, I recently updated to Firefox 48.0. Since then, I've noticed the longer I get into a session, the more it starts to freeze. It seems to be using quite a bit more memory than even just the immediate previous version of Firefox. When I have to exit the browser when this becomes unbearable, it usually crashes 30 or so seconds after exiting. I get a plug-in container error. This is now to the point, where it's not even worth it to use the browser.

Anyone else having this problem with the new update? I'm pretty sure I have the system specs to run this, all plug-ins are up to date, all graphic drivers are up-to-date, I've experimented with turning on and off hardware acceleration in the browser to no avail. What problem(s) was/were the update supposed to be fixing?

I'm trying to stream ESPN, FS1, & NBCSN via XFINITY. When it starts to load they respond with a polite message that an updated version of the Flash Player is needed and supplies the Adobe link. Going to the Adobe site and initiating the update sequence Adobe replies with the message "Package 'adobe-flashplugin' is already installed". I'm using Ububtu 16.04 64 bit. Watching video on YouTube is no problem for example. There is no problem on a tablet using Win8 & Firefox to do the same thing.

Firefox crashed, like it does some times, like all browsers tend to do. However this time no crash report, which was weird but not something unthinkable. When I opened firefox again it didnt ask if I wanted to restore my previous session, also weird. I checked to see if I could restore my previous session my self through the history, nope. I checked if I could restore the previous session through the profile in AppData, somehow made the previous session and current in close succession so that was lost too. Though up a last chance to retrieve everything, connecting with sync on a different pc, NOPE, it had also synced when I had restarted firefox.

Now I have lost all my tabs.... for some people not a big problem, however I rather put almost everything in tabs than put them in bookmarks, cause in tabs I get visually reminded of something I wanted to read or check out otherwise. I can easily remember where I left the tab I want to look at without having to scroll through endless bookmarks or try to remember the title of the site to open the bookmark, I used to put everything in bookmarks till I had to search through 500+ bookmarks, which made me realize tabs are easier to work with. TL;DR I lost about 200+ tabs because mozilla randomly crashed without crash report.

Does someone know any way to retrieve my lost data, or can mozilla somehow get me a the tabs from any sync before 17/09/2016 6:00?

Kind regards
