So, I've been having this issue for sometime now. I went through all the help pages, read through all the different ones on Mozilla support and Adobe's official forums, and I haven't been able to stop it from crashing.

It started around a month ago, and I've just been trying to deal with it, but it has gotten to a ridiculous level of hanging. It almost never crashes, but it hangs indefinitely making me have to end it in the process area of the Windows Task Manager. It hangs when I open a new tab, when I'm mid-video, when I just leave it for too long, and randomly whenever it feels like it. And each time it looks different.

I also have some of my most recent crashes here if they are helpful:

As of today, February 9, 2015 I am unable to connect to my Verizon Fios home page. When I click on the Firefox icon to open the browser, my bookmarks appear, etc. bit it will not connect to My Verizon home page. I am able to go to all the web sites that I want to but I cannot connect to Verizon. I called Verizon but they weren't able to help me, unfortunately. I hope that someone here will be able explain how to resolve this.

I tried using Google Chrome and was able to connect to Verizon's Email and News, therefore, I presume that this is a problem with Mozilla Firefox.

Thank you.

I have Windows 8.1 and the latest version of Firefox and Java installed. When I try to use the screen recording feature of www.screenr.com/recording the screen loads and looks great until I try to resize the recording window. If I try to do that then the recording controls disappear and the screen recording window does not resize. I tried to attach images, but Firefox would not upload them. It just sat there loading and loading and .....

If I just try to record as is then when I click on "Record" nothing happens. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Java, and installing earlier versions. I checked "about:config" to see if "true" was listed under "java-enabled" and it was. My son has the same setup as me and it works fine on his computer. My wife has Windows 7 Ultimate, but everything else is the same and it works on hers. I tried running www.screenr.com on Chrome and IE, and it does not work in either of those browsers either, so I am really confused.

I have gone into the settings of Firefox and added java.com, and screenr.com to the "Exceptions" box. I have clicked on the green lock in the address bar to see if "install add-ons" feature was set to allow for screer.com and it was. I have opened the Java Configure console and also added screenr.com to the whitelist and still no luck.

Can you help?

Thanks

I recently upgraded to 36 and am running Windows8.0.

I opened up Firefox after the update and it worked fine until it suddenly stopped connecting to the internet. It doesn't say that it can't connect to the website, it just sits there with the loading charm circling endlessly.

I can restart my computer and use the "Delete Parent.lock" fix, but it doesn't last for more than about 5 minutes. I also can't untick the box for "Read Only" on the folders for profiles. Rather, I can, but it reverts after hitting "OK" and closing the Properties.

Refreshing Firefox after rebooting my computer worked for about the same length of time, so that fix will not work.

eWallet crashing when using Firefox on 64 bit Windows 8.1

Hi there,

Since I upgraded my laptop recently to a 64-bit HP Envy running Windows 8.1, I’ve been having trouble with eWallet (a digital wallet for passwords) using Firefox V35.0.1.

In case you don’t know eWallet, it is possible to store passwords, user-id’s and sign-on web page URLs in a card format. When you click on the URL, it populates the fields in the sign-on page.

I am having the same problem on a 64-bit Dell Inspiron laptop my wife uses

eWallet works seamlessly on 32-bit Win XP.

eWallet works on both the 64-bit machines using Internet Explorer and Chrome, but not Firefox.

After many emails back and forth, several complete removals (using Revo Uninstaller) and re-installs of both eWallet and Firefox, this is the conclusion of eWallet Support….

It looks to me like the Firefox installation still isn't quite right on your PC. If you look at the text file you sent me, you'll see on line 43[of the registry dump I sent them] that firefox is referenced under the "Program Files" folder -- but in other places in the file, it's referenced under "Program Files (x86)". My guess is that eWallet is trying to launch firefox using the path Windows is giving it (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe), and firefox is not actually there. Please note that this area of the registry is Microsoft's, not ours -- we don't change anything in it, we merely use this area for its intended purpose: getting the path to the appropriate browser. I can't explain why Firefox isn't installing properly, but it's outside the scope of eWallet to be able to resolve that particular problem.

My understanding of what they are saying is that Firefox is not installing correctly for some reason.

I have also tried starting Firefox without any extensions or plug-ins, again no success.

Plugins and Extensions installed: Extensions

  Block site 1.1.8
  Classic Theme Restorer 1.2.9.3 
  Download YouTube Videos as MP4 1.7.31
  Ghostery 5.4.1
  Lightbeam 1.2.1
  SSL Version Control 0.4

Plugins

  Open H264 1.3
  Citrix Online Web Deployment Plugin 1.0.0.104
  Foxit Reader Plugin for Mozilla 2.2.4.903
  Google Earth Plugin 7.1.2.2041
  Google Update 1.3.26.9
  Intel Identity Protection Technology 4.0.5.0
  iTunes Application Detector 1.0.1.1
  Microsoft Office 2010 14.0.4730.1010
  Picasa 3.0.0.0
  Shockwave Flash 16.0.0.305
  Shockwave for Director 12.1.6.156
  Silverlight Plug-In 5.1.30514.0
  VLC Web Plugin 2.1.3.0

Could you please provide me with some guidance that may help me in resolving this problem?

Thanks and regards, Steve

When starting (or restarting Firefox) everything is fine - even with loads of tabs open. Slowly, even if I'm not using it the RAM usage increases 500M and up.

I'm running 35.0.1, but the problem existed with earlier versions too. Reading various threads looks like I'm not the only one, but none of the threads come up with a solution.

I have however tried all the things suggested, disabled hardware acceleration, running in safe mode, etc. Makes no difference. The problem remains. The only thing that works is closing Firefox and reopening it, say every 30 minutes - that's a pain.

As I say this has been going on for a long time in various version (certainly a year or two) and on various PCs. On 64 bit machines with loads of RAM it's a nuisance, but I have some applications which will only run in a true 32 bit environment, and in on those machines Firefox is to all intents and purposes unusable.

The other thing that works is using explorer, but I've been a Thunderbird user almost since day 1 - back in the days when real mozilla techs gave real technical support - so I really don't want to have to do that.

Would be good, as a starting point if someone could say how much RAM Firefox should use running in safe mode with only one tab open. That would at least put a stake in the ground.

I've updated the javadevelopment and shockwave flash plugins. These were the only ones that indicated it required updates. I ran these updates independent from the site and through the providers. Still appears to be a problem.

These problems do not occur in Chrome

My hard drive failed and was replaced by my desktop support team. As a result, I had to re-install FireFox, my preferred browser to provide console connections to my production servers. These connections are old, firmware platforms that are not updatable behind multiple firewall layers. They use old versions of ssl and self signed certificates. Your new browser simply blocks access. Without the ability to override permanently this 'feature', I am unable to access the consoles of servers doing billions of dollars in business. I have a work-around in place with other browsers.

Just finished turning off Firefox's auto updates on all of my computers. Because I had to learn to get in the habit of copying my Firefox profile about once a month. Why? Because I keep losing my settings! Mainly my passwords. This is now the 3rd update in a row that has dropped my passwords. 2nd time on that computer. (Windows 8.1) .

Please figure out why this occurs. (I can't be the only one). If it was always the same computer, I would point at it. But, the other 2 are Windows 7.

OR................ maybe...........instead of the profile being updated and possibly losing files, or over writing them. At the start of the update, say it makes a backup? Just in case v. 36,37,38,39,40,41,42.................cause the same issue. At least then if the passwords are the only issue, grab the 2 files and drop them back in the profile. done.


I hate sounding like a douche, just really freakin annoyed.

We use some dumb terminals to log multiple users onto a Windows Server machine. All the terminals login using the same account (and profile). However only one of the logins is able to use Firefox, everyone else gets the message saying its already open. We don't have any issues with IE, but... its IE... ugh.

Is there a way around this? I understand a lock file is created in the profile (which would then apply to all users logged in on that account). Is there a way to make them unique in some way? Please don't suggest we have to change browsers :(

I only noticed on Dec 13th that Firefox v34 or v35 wiii not connect to any Google site on the 13th of the month. It occurred on 13th January too. After that I experimented with the date reset facility in Windows XP, ran a reboot and found I could reproduce this problem. Google search, maps, analytics are all affected and browser eventually says "server times out" with a plain grey background.

I have devised a routine that backsteps and then jumps for a date so that "the 13th" never happens again on this system.

Hey there

I tired to install GimpShop, which suppose to be already customised to look like a PSH version of Gimp. However the installer makes some funny business and all the crapware possible: toolbars, addons etc. I stopped the installation and removed the crapware using AdwCleaner, SpyBot 2.0 and Eset Online Scanner. However, my dictionaries, add-ons in both Firefox and Gimp were either disabled or removed.

So, here are my questions:

1. Why where they disabled or removed? BTW I couldn't reactive them. 2. Why Firefox is the only browser that installs without asking addons form freeware installers (which very often you can not uncheck their installations)? Chrome has less crap and Opera never has anything unwanted installed. 3. Why Firefox keeps hanging up ale slowing down the system when there is only one heavy page? Or keeps freezing when Adobe Flash in YouTube constantly crashes?
