In addition to the question below, another problem is not only are my email responses erased when the browser refreshes, the message itself is no longer available. I have to start from the beginning point in my email list, rather than remain on the once-opened email.

By the way, I have reset and restored my Firefox as a solution, which didn't help. I did this twice, following instructions. The process was tedious and I had to recover quite a bit of information, not to mention a problem with merged bookmarks. I'd like to avoid this solution, at all costs. Here's what I said earlier. Again, thanks for any/all help you can provide.

For the past several weeks, now, I've noticed that my browser "refreshes" the feed more frequently, so frequently, in fact, that any emails, forms, or survey questions that I am answering get wiped clean. This started happening with the latest update. I am unable to locate any setting in my preferences that will stop the constant refreshment (reload? page update?). This is also frustrating when trying to make purchases on line, and as I said, write emails, complete forms, complete surveys, etc.

Thank you in advance for quickly resolving this most frustrating problem? I use a Mac, and am running Mavericks. This problem was present with the previous OS, too. Thanks again!

I have a recurring issue that's really annoying: my left/right arrow keys (including CTRL+arrow keys) occasionally and randomly fail to work when entering text in certain text boxes on certain websites. This never occurs in "simple" unformatted text boxes (Facebook, search boxes, this very box I'm typing in...), but unpredictably happens in more complex ones (WYSIWYG editors, new youtube comments...).

I have tried disabling all extensions and running Firefox in safe mode and this *seems* to have solved the problem, though I can't be sure and I can't isolate which extension it might be, since the issue happens at random: on the same website it will happen and then not happen.

I'm on Firefox 25.0, though I've had this issue for years with countless versions of Firefox.

The extensions I have installed and enabled:

Adblock plus Bamboo Feed Reader, Dimmer, Download Helper, Drag&Drop Zones, Flagfox, FlashVideo Downloader, Flashblock, Flashgot, Grab and Drag, MouseZoom, Status-4-Evar, Youtube High Definition

Thanks in advance for any help you may give me.

Hello, I am writing as I am experiencing some issues with my favorite web browser after updating to Windows 8.1. Here are some details. I updated from Windows 8.0 to Windows 8.1 and ever since Firefox has run somewhat strangely. In particular when on sites with a lot of images like Facebook. It is like there is some kind of Flikr effect between the desktop and the images and between the images and the browser (almost like old 16 bit video games flikering). It is not too bad but it is an issue. I have tried resetting firefox and restarting the computer. I haven't tried a repair, and I haven't done an uninstall yet.

I used Firefox up to version 3.5 and it worked well. But ever since, FF has frozen as soon as I've opened a webpage other than Google. FF even freezes when I'm in Mozilla's help pages ! I have trashed and reinstalled several times, updated constantly as suggested. I'm now using (or trying to use) version 25. No success. I have done everything that was suggested :

- trashed and reinstalled ( several times over the years, to see if new versions of FF would work) - restarted FF in safe mode - tweaked the profile as recommended - I've painstakingly checked that all my plug-ins etc were up to date. They are.


None of these solutions have worked. As I have written more than once, none of them should be necessary : Firefox should "just work". After all, other browsers do - I use Safari and Chrome, for instance, as well as SeaMonkey. Does any one know what's happening ?

I'm now running Mac OS 10.9.

Since Ubuntu Mozilla Daily ppa is no longer regularly updated (see https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-daily/+archive/ppa ), I want to build my own self-signed Firefox packages similar to the ones created by Ubuntu Mozilla Daily; but I can't find anywhere the way they are built.

Actually I successfully compile Firefox, so I need just the necessary informations in order to build a deb package with it.

Thank you

I use IE-Favorites not only for internet url shortcuts, but also as a normal folder (which it is actually). I work with Firefox on a Windows PC with plugin "PlainOldFavorites" for the bookmarks.

On my Mac , I would like the equivalent function (IE folder for bookmarks in Firefox) but the same plugin does not work on Mac. Which plugin would have that functionality ? To have access to the same folder (or a synchronized copy of Favorites) ?

Thank you

I have an issue thats been plaguing me so far for a month in Firefox; after Firefox has been in use for quite awhile (open for many days with hundreds of pages throughout those days being opened and closed) it never releases the RAM it has used, ive seen it go from being initially around 400MB at start in the first 30 minutes of being opened then after an hour it goes to around 600MB-900MB, that number is somewhat normal for me i guess (in the days of using Firefox 4 id get that usage alot on my old netbook) and then it goes to the point of insanity at random and uses a whole 2GB and once its done that its almost unusably slow and at times must be killed with the system's Task Manager.

This isnt normal. Especially because this happens when i have nothing but Firefox's homepage opened and everything else closed. Its as if all the content on the pages ive visited gets hoarded by Firefox over time and it never gets released, its almost as if Firefox is like how Windows 98 was if you kept it running for days without shutting it down.

Ive done practically everything to try and remedy this as was suggested by the kind helpful people in the linked thread.

  • Ive disabled all addons i dont need
  • Ive gotten rid of addons i dont need
  • Ive started a completely new Firefox profile and in it use nothing but the addons i need for my day to day browsing (so nothing else beyond what i need is enabled or in Firefox in the first place)
  • Ive updated flash player and most of the other plugins firefox lists
  • Ive updated all of my computer's drivers and updates from Windows Update
  • Ive cleared the cache and cookies and persistent data repeatedly to try and empty Firefox's used RAM
  • Ive used about:memory's "reduce memory usage" option to clear out Firefox's RAM but it did nothing, if anything at times it made it go up a few megabytes or two
  • As suggested i disabled 3 "jetpack" addons that i needed because they supposedly were the cause of this
  • Ive enabled addons one by one to see which is the problematic one, in each time that i did that when i found the culprit and disabled the addon that i thought was the one at fault the problem would only return in a matter of time making all that effort go down the drain
  • Did a crapton of virus scans
  • Ive read most of Firefox's help articles on fixing it, ive done it all
  • A portable install of Firefox runs just perfect, and even a fresh new profile without a single addon is perfect, its when i need addons the problems arise.
  • I have run memtest, memtest86, and even the memtest that comes with Windows, all show nothing is wrong with my machine


Ever since i created a new profile my previous problem of Firefox's context menu being as slow as molasses is gone, but the rest lingers on still (albeit less i admit).

So far Im left with two seemingly related problems in forefox, in short: Firefox's RAM usage at random stays very high even if there is nothing but one tab open, heck there could only be the homepage of Firefox open and itd still do that even if i leave it like that for hours without touching it. Heres an example from earlier today https://app.box.com/s/sc7xpmsjnmf18q3rx12t

And heres after i used about:memory's reduce memory usage command https://app.box.com/s/whbay8b4l2z89grdphzd

And if Firefox is not doing that, then i get the other problem of the CPU usage having a spike every so often that freezes up Firefox for a while, when it does that Window's Task Manager lists Firefox as using around 10% CPU usage, which is alot considering ive never seen Firefox use more than 5% at worst before. It even at times simply stays like that while its idle using that CPU figure. I dont have a screenshot at the moment of Firefox at it since its not doing it but heres a screenshot of another process doing it http://vvcap.net/db/aSXmdVEsoZ-9tQj4TnH6.htp

At this point i dont know what to do anymore to be honest, i love Firefox and its addons, its what makes it unique, without them i just cant browse, i could just as well use IE (ew). Part of the reason i got a beefy computer was so that i could use Firefox instead of Opera without having to worry about its infamous memory usage (at the time i recall it being a memory hog it was in the days of Firefox 4 -14, after i used Firefox 21 things had dramatically improved since) Ive gone down to using nothing but what i ONLY need for daily browsing in the new profile and kept all other kinds of use of Firefox's addons strictly to usage inside a virtual machine (VMWare to be preice). But still the problem lingers on. Im sorry that this is long, but i just want to be detailed as possible so that this can be solved

Finally, my specs; as i have no idea if the attached troubleshooting contains it or not.

Intel Core i7 2630QM @ 2.00GHz (with Turbo Boost 2.9GHz) Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology 8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz Radeon HD 6770M (HP) (theres integrated graphics too i guess) 112GB ATA KINGSTON SH103S3 SCSI Disk Device (the SSD i have Firefox installed on)

Hello,

I've been having this crashes for very long time and I can't bear it anymore. I appreciate any help. I tried to reinstalled firefox and rebuild my profile with add-on I usually use. I use quite a lot of add-on. It didn't help and then I think it might be my window. so I upgraded OS to 64 bit windows 7 (i was using windows 7 32-bit) and it still crashed. It happened usually when I have many tabs, over 20 tabs memory usage is over 1.2GB. My computer: Dual-core E6500 2.93GHz, 4GB ram, is it not powerful enough to run many add-on (just counted, I'm using over 40 add-ons) and many tabs?

My laptop doesn't have this problem. They are sync, so they have the same profile, but it is a i5 CPU and 8GB ram. my friend's firefox has much less add-on and running XP with 2GB ram and he can run more than 60 tabs without problem (he doesn't close tabs)

please let me know if you need any other information.

Cheers

For a long period of time (I'm sorry, I can't remember exact dates, but this problem is over the course of a couple years that it began, and in the past couple months it's gotten significantly worse.) I've had Firefox consuming large amounts of memory. Several years ago it was generally only half a gigabyte when this problem started, and my main annoyance was that flash would occasionally crash. But now over the past several months the issue has only gotten worse, as firefox typically consumes 1 gigabyte to nearly 2 gigabytes of memory sometimes with as little as 2 tabs open.

I generally have a maximum of 10 tabs open, 6 on average, which as far as I've seen from others using other internet browsers is actually not an incredibly high figure. If the memory troubles are starting up, closing flash heavy tabs like youtube or some advertisement heavy sites does seem to help, but it never, and I really mean never, fully alleviates the issue, it just decreases the amount of memory usage somewhat, slows the growth of memory usage until I visit a few more sites.

I run Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, have an incredibly huge amount of bookmarks (if that's the issue I'll cry), and am in the bad habit of only turning my computer off every few days. If I do not turn my computer off, close firefox when it's having memory troubles, and then re-open it when task manager claims the processes ended, the memory troubles start much faster than if I restarted my computer. I do not have many plugins or add-ons, primarily just java, flash, silverlight, and a few other things floating around. I have tried disabling all of them except flash several times and the problem still persisted. I admittedly, have never tried disabling flash player. All of my plugins and add-ons are up-to-date. I have followed the troubleshooting instructions such as booting up in safe mode to no avail.

I hope you can help, I really don't want to leave firefox and find some way to transfer my horrendous amount of bookmarks. Thanks much.

Also, on a side note, it is hilarious that your troubleshooter add-on does not have its author verified.
