Recently in this week, when I open up Firefox, it automatically opens up a new tab and loads Bing. It originally only loads up my previous tabs, and only activates the one I was showing last time. It still does pretty much the same thing, with the one I was reading on my last visit activated, but it then opens up Bing. I didn't pay attention to it the first time, just got suspicious since I never used Bing(kinda hate M$ to begin with) so that wouldn't be my last site visited. I did checked and it is the real Bing and not a phishing site of a virus, and simply closed the tab. I started to get annoyed by the third time, so I got into about:config and deleted all the results that returned Bing. Just two of those and none seems to matter at all to my current situation. I made sure that google is my only search provider, closed the browser and restarted it, Bing didn't pop up that time so I thought I'm fine. But the next day, same thing happened again, and don't have any results in about:config with Bing. My homepage is a blank page, and my new tab page is the Firefox default one(with google and some of the sites I pinned. I have some plug-ins and add-on installed, but none are related to Bing, and I installed all of them quite long ago, so it doesn't seem to be a recent plugin that screwed me. And no, I am not stupid enough to have Bing bar installed and not noticed it.

I did a search in my about:support page, and it returned no "Bing" results, and the "Search" results returned 2, Tineye and google scholar. The only Microsoft addons I have is sharepoint and lync.

This thread on the forum, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1038882, seems to be the closest to my situation, but none of the anwsers helped. If I open another Firefox window, it goes to the Firefox start page.


Thank you in advance to anyone who tries to solve this problem.

Until recently (unless my memory is completely shot), clicking an image to view it at full size would center the image around the point that I clicked. Recently, clicking has defaulted to zooming to the upper-left corner of the image. It can be a real pain to scroll to the portion of the image I actually want to view when I'm looking at a particularly large image. Is there any way to restore the previous behavior?

I go to my minor league baseball site for the games. I click on the button to get an animated view of the game with real time action. Firefox tells me I have to have a flash player and must download it. I close firefox, go to google, go to same site, and click on same button. I gert exactly what I want. Google doesn't ask for any player. What I have is good enough. Why is firefox trying to force me to download a flash player i obviously do not need? Do I have to keep google towatch my baseball games??

I recently had someone malicious change my router's DNS server IP address to a bad one. When it was changed, I could not access google or facebook. I have fixed it and can browse both sites, but the search toolbar in the top right won't take me to google. I get an "Unable to connect" error. Doing other search engines (eg wikipedia) is fine.

Firefox 37 right out of the box (+router nonsense) on Ubuntu 14.

Firefox Sync on my laptop does not work when my laptop is connected to my home network, but e.g. if I'm at my office.

The internet connection at my home is fine, I can surf the web with that very Firefox on both IPv4 and IPv6, DNS etc. is also working. Logging in to accounts.firefox.com also works, as does connecting Firefox to the Sync account. Only the process of syncing itself fails. On my desktop computer at home, I have exactly the same problems. When I open https://sync-209-us-west-2.sync.services.mozilla.com/ in a browser tab, I see a confirmation message that sync runs on that server, so apparently the network path between my computer and that server is free.

Upon investigation with Wireshark, I see the successful TLS handshake, then some packets from the client that are not answered and after some time the server closes the connection (Encrypted Alert). Apparently, no content is transferred between client and server. I attach a screenshot of how Wireshark sees the conversation between server and client (The image upload here didn't work so I put it on the web: http://ibin.co/1zXABHKdj5mA).

To exclude a possible misconfiguration or bad add-on, I created a clean new Firefox profile and connected it to my Firefox account, but this shows exactly the same problems.

Fun fact: Firefox on my Android phone does sync in my home network.


Below, I will link two log files, one successful sync (office network) and one failed sync (home network): Sync @ office: http://pastebin.com/rZmfrbdL Sync @ home: http://pastebin.com/a3KUCevJ

I have an old Safari browser version as well as the latest Firefox for my Mac OS 10.6.8 I have set Safari Version 5.1.10 (6534.59.10) to use Firefox 37.0.2 as my default browser. Apple no longer supports OS 10.6.8 with the latest Safari browser.

I have set Firefox to Always check if firefox is your default browser.

In the Firefox 37.0.2 General tab, it says "Firefox is currently your default browser". When I shut down and restart, my Mac always opens up using Safari. What must I do to get it to open up in Firefox?

I posted a reply to my original question, and when I previewed it, it was "different" (cannot explain, however the string of words has an extension). I tried to correct it, and even re-posted it, and there is no way I can edit it or delete it. I hope that it is "readable the way it is now (?). I would have deleted it if there were an option for that.

Almost 12 hours ago, after opening the browser ( home page is https://www.google.ro/ ) I navigated to wikipedia to search for a airplane and suddenly it opened by itself a new window with a " Mozilla annually survey ". I took that survey, which was consisting of 4 questions. After that survey, randomly firefox started opening Adds. I'll post here the link which i think might be " doing" this, if this is some kind a virus.... I'm just saying, because i can't find any explanation.

I have uploaded a Print Screenof my firefox and the Windows 7 Task Manager. You can see that firefox is using a big amunt of RAM and the Flash Player plugin too, half a gigabyte. I don't think it's normal, because it has never used so much memory not even when i opened 10 videos simultaneously on youtube that uses this plugin.

I hope that the picture has been uploaded, because in the last 10 minutes that I've spent writing this the square picture where the uploaded file should be has been loading all the time. Even now it is saying ""Uploading "Firefox Problem 3.png"... """ . if you need more from me to tell you, i will.

I am developing a website (my first) and I wish it to display much the same on the major browsers. With Firefox, things are 25% larger than I specify. I did a simple test with a div element: < body >< div style="background-color:red; width:300px;" >This is 300px div< /div >< /body >. (Spaces added in this question as otherwise the tags are not displayed.) The size of the div element on my screen is 375px (as determined by pasting an image of the screen into Paint).

My Firefox setting is 100%. I have a 1680x1050 screen and I wondered whether Firefox was making an adjustment based on my screen resolution. I changed the resolution to 1440x900, 1360x768, 1280x1024, 1280x800 and even 800x600 and got the same result.

I could adjust the zoom setting to compensate on my screen, however that is not a solution because I clearly can't do that to visitors to my website.

What is causing Firefox to display larger than I expect and how do I compensate?

PS. When the browser window is maximized and the screen resolution is 1680X1050, document.body.clientWidth and document.body.offsetWidth are both 1311 - giving a ratio of roughly 1.25. Why are clientWidth and offsetWidth not roughly equal to the width of the screen.

I just installed Windows 8.1 to my computer, and I am currently using the latest version of Firefox. I've noticed that after I've used the browser for a while, when I am watching a stream/video, or scrolling/clicking through pages, the browser stalls temporarily for a second.

The thing that stops the choppiness is restarting Firefox (both with and without addons). While the browser turns choppy, I tried other browsers like IE to see if it applies to that as well, and it behaves more smoothly.

After a while, it gets really annoying having to reset exit and start up the browser, every time it starts to get choppy. Any guesses as to what could cause it?

I am having a problem with Java and firefox. Any webpages that use Java either cause firefox to hangup(tabs are still clickable, and the window title changes but the page does not), or crash all together.(I can't even use the Detect Java app on their website, it just causes the hang, and never recovers)

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Java and Firefox several times in different orders and nothing has corrected the problem yet. Java does not work in safe mode either. I am running Windows 8.1 Pro, Java 8, 45, and Firefox 37.0.2. I suspect that it a problem with either my computer or settings in Firefox because I am not getting any popups asking me to allow/deny pages that want to use Java like I get with IE. But Java does not work in IE either.

If there is any other info I can provide please let me know, I'm going nuts with this trying to figure out the problem and I'm stuck.

Problem grew progressively worse over 2-3 days. First, a few bookmarks disappeared from the toolbar. At the same time, "Bookmark This Page" stopped working, and the "Recently Bookmarked" list went blank. When I followed the Firefox-recommended procedure to backup and restore, I repeatedly got the message that Firefox was unable to process the restore. Then 3/4ths of my bookmark folders disappeared. This happened trying it with several different backup dates. Now I find that a number of other people are having similar problems. Like some of them, my problem may have started during a restart due to a lockup in another program. The Mozilla Support system seems way too complicated, time-consuming and circular, and talking to a live person does not appear to be an option. If this isn't fixed in the next 24 hours I'm trying other browsers, after using Firefox almost exclusively for several years.

Firefox crashes every few minutes. Doesn't matter if I'm watching a video on Youtube or just have a single tab open with Google on it and nothing else happening.

I've tried "safe mode" and it still does it. Here are the last few (a lot are ones I did using a Youtube video as I can get it to crash reliably there, although the last few crashes happened when I was posting this message here).

Here are the last few "About:crashes" links:

  • bp-4431a7ef-8c61-43da-8904-b07d32150427

  • bp-e1199181-2117-4deb-a891-4cf802150427

These are just a few of them. I have a bout 50 or 60 more if you need them.
