When I try to start Waterfox, Firefox loads anyway. I have them both and want to use Waterfox when I don't need my Norton Toolbar. How do I make it work?

I suppose I need two profiles, one for Firefox, one for Waterfox. What is the best way to accomplish this without creating a mess. I have installed both, and want to be able to use both, simultaneously if possible.

I did find the article on Using the profile manager to create.... at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles

but it's not enough to move forward confidently. Right now, the default seems to be firefox. attempts to load waterfox load firefox.

Thank you. BTW, I have all my plugins on "Ask first". Incredible change in speed, and no more 'hang's' and crashes.

hey guys, i wasnt sure where i could put this info, i have discovered some info regarding the "FLASH PLAYER PLUGIN." that doesnt seem to be documented on any kb article or support thread, so hopefully one of you will be able to help getting this submitted. obviously this wont fix everyone's problem, but it should be included.

THE PROBLEM::

Flash Player Hanging or Crashing (unable to watch flash/video content) Script has become unresponsive error message when trying to view flash/video content

THE SOLUTION:

a possible cause to this problem is that you have lost permissions to the file directory where flash is actually stored. without these permissions you will be unable to properly utilize the flash plugin on firefox.

to fix the problem we will need to update the security settings on the flash directory.

for 32 bit machines: C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash

for 64 bit machines: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash

navigate to the \Macromed\ folder and right click on the flash folder and select properties. click on the security tab at the top of this box then on the advanced button at the bottom of this box. after navigating to this screen, you will need to click change permissions. first make sure there is no deny statement which is denying access to this folder, if one exists, remove it. second make sure that the name "Everyone" has the abilty to read and execute, to do this: click on everyone, then edit. next, select: apply any changes to: "This folder, subfolders, and files." this is at the top of the edit box. after you click ok to the changes you made, you will need to enable the option: "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object." now click the apply button, then ok button. now check to see if firefox is working.


if you find that you are unable to change these permissions, then you lost access to the parent folders as well and they are replacing child object permissions. you will need to apply the solution above to the parent folder that is overriding the permissions. this will either be: \system32\ or \SysWOW64\ depending on your machine or possibly even the \Windows\ folder.

If you find that these parent folders indeed had their permissions lost, then you have likely acquired some malware. You should download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and do an update and full scan.

OS: Windows 7pro Sp1 64bit History: About 3 updates ago Firefox started to randomly hang when I entered text, such as text in Gmail or in search engine windows. Or while filling out this help request. I tried unsuccessfully all the suggested remedies. I then uninstalled Firefox, and deleted any remaining references to Firefox and Mozilla in the registry. Finally I downloaded and did a fresh reinstall of the latest version. I used Febe to restore Bookmarks and Passwords. The problem continues. Details: Leaving Firefox by clicking on any icon on the taskbar or clicking on the desktop and then returning to Firefox restores the ability to enter text. Until the next hang. Amount of text I can enter between hangs seems random. It can be a few words or several paragraphs. When Firefox hangs the cursor stops blinking and the program becomes unresponsive to any input. Plea: Is there a solution or do I have to give up on my favorite browser and switch to Chrome or (gulp)IE? Thanks in advance for any help!

Running Windows 7 Pro x64, Intel core i7, 8GB RAM

Firefox 40.0.3 was hanging a lot when browsing eBay pages after upgrading. Removing all addons did not resolve the issue, nor did clearing cache or re-installing 40.0.3.

Re-installing 40.0.2 resolved the issue.

Some change introduced in 40.0.3 or possible eBay site upgrade is causing one of the top ecommerce sites to becomes unusable.

I recommend contacting ebay techs to resolve this issue if you believe the change did not occur on the Firefox end.

Additionally, when bringing up the task manager application, I see the ffcert.exe is running most of the time when the hangs occur. I never noticed this app previously, but that may be due to the hang not occurring so I had no reason to keep task manager open.

I was using my computer a couple of days ago with no issues, shutdown the computer for the night, then the next day there is a delay for the context menu to show up after right clicking in both Firefox and Thunderbird.

Aside from installing a few updates I have not made any changes to the computer since the day before & I have no issue with context menus in other browsers or the OS.

The hardware a Dell Optiplex 790 with an i5-2400 quad core, 12 Gb ram running Ubuntu 17.04 64bit.

The symptoms:

- The right click context menu takes approx 5 to 8 sec to show up. - Drop down menus on web pages & in settings behave the same. - Occasionally the FF window will darken for a second or two then return to normal. - When an option on the context menu is clicked it is taking about 3 sec to go through.

Fixes tried:

- New Profile. - Safe Mode. - Disabling Hardware Acceleration. - Complete removal of FF & TB as well as their folders. - Downgrading to FF version 50. - Checked on another computer (this one is running Lubuntu, & does not show the issue).

Does anyone have any ideas?

Firefox v55.0.3 64bit is extremely slow in loading pages (so slow that I'm using IceDragon in most cases). I looked up increasing performance by using Hardware Acceleration by increasing the Content Process Limit (see attached). I have Hardware Acceleration selected. However, the selection for Content Process for my version of Firefox is set to one and the option is grayed out so I can't change it.

Any ideas on how to increase my performance? Running Win 10 Pro 64bit CU with latest updates.

Not only I tried a fresh reinstall, I tried resetting all settings, safe-mode, rebooting, disabling hardware acceleration, upping the amount of processes FF uses, ALL the solutions the questions normally had... you name it.

This won't be solved by any of the other solutions I found here or anywhere else.

EVERY SINGLE TIME I open a new tab, FF Quantum (version 57, up to date as of today November 16th) freezes for 5 to 15 seconds. If I have a youtube video opened for example, the sound keeps playing (so the video is still playing on the "background") but I can't click anywhere or do anything, can't close the browser either if I don't open the task manager and shut down the process.

It's getting REALLY annoying, but I want to get a fix before I definitely decide to swap to Chrome. Please, don't make me switch to Chrome.

I have read and tried several of the fixes for this but I continue to have firefox over a period of time use up to 6 gigs of ram. I have spent several hours on this and I just want to let mozilla know that I am going to give up and go to a browser that doesn't cause my whole computer to freeze up because of this memory problem. I have used and recommended Firefox for many years but I no longer fell like I can do this with the current version of firefox. I did not have this trouble before this version.

 I also do computer tech work and I will now have to recommend a different browser to my clients in case they have

the same problem as me.

 I dont feel that it should take several hours of trying solutions to see if I can fix something that is a problem I didnt have

until this version of firefox. So much for it being much faster and better, this is not my experience.
