Ive tried everything in firefox so far but its just no working for me

i disabled addons manually to see whats gobbling up so much ram but nothing, i upgraded, downgraded all the plugins and nothing either (the new flash plugin was giving me issues so now im on an older one btw, was still having issues with recent flash version so thats not it) i added addons that supposedly reduce ram usage but nothing

i enabled and disabled hardware acceleration but nothing either

i cleared the cache and everything that firefox can clear except the browsing history but nada

i used speedfox to try and possibly fix this annoyance but nothing at all

i updated, downgraded, and basically did everything possible with my computer's drivers but nothing either

is firefox just meant to be like this and to behave like an app that never releases its RAM afters its used? in task manager its showing me anywhere between 1.2GB or RAM being used or over 2GB's!! this isnt normal especially since i have only 4 light tabs open, all this and to add to it the context menu loading when i right click is slow as molasses

please, please, can someone just help me here? i added a log thingy that could possibly help, idk whats even going on here anymore from this, one day firefox was great and using no more than 1 gb in total with over 100 tabs open but now with just 4 after firefox has been open for a long time its devouring a quarter of my total RAM, for a browser thats a bit insane, especially since in the days i used to use Opera itd use no more than 800MB at worst

Youtube is still working with Safari and Chrome but for some reason it stopped working with Firefox. This happened the night before it updated to Firefox 25. I thought the update was the issue but it's not. I've tried everything that I've read about to fix this issue. I've tried playing vids in safe mode, updated to the latest version of flash, disabled hardware acceleration, I've cleared all cookies and cache, I've reset firefox, I've deleted all my add-ons, I've deleted and re-installed firefox. Nothing is working. Anyone got a clue what to do?

I was putting up a sales page on my site and I noticed that the redirect on my page was NOT FUNCTIONING with Firefox version 27, so I downloaded Firefox version 25 and the redirect on my sales page was working with Firefox version 25.

Can you look into this redirect problem with Firefox 27 and get back to me (all of us) with a solution?

Here is the URL for my sales page: http://cybermark-solutions.com/4steps1

When you try to leave the page, the page should redirect to another page. It works with Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari, BUT NOT FIREFOX VERSION 27.

Please fix this redirection problem and get back to be with your solution.

Stalling/Choppy Scrolling for Some Sites on Tumblr?- STILL NEED HELP

For the past couple of days, scrolling for some pages on Tumblr has been what I can only describe as "Stalled" or "Choppy". Unfortunately, I cannot screenshot this, nor do I know if there is a way I can record this phenomenon, so unfortunately, a description will have to do for now.

So, the problem. On some pages on Tumblr, I will try scrolling down, but not get a response until a second or two after I attempted to scroll down. That's..pretty much the basic issue. And it only seems to happen on certain pages. All other pages scroll just fine.

Why I do not think this is an issue caused by extensions: Well, the fact that I'm on a freshly-reset browser, and the problem is still coming up tells me that this problem is not due to extensions.

Why I do not think this is a Tumblr problem, or a problem with my computer itself: This issue does not occur when I open the same page on Chrome, and again, it's not happening throughout all Tumblr pages.

I have tried clearing the cookies and cache, resetting the browser, and virus scans. Nothing has been picked up, nor has anything worked to solve the issue for more than an hour. My plugins and browser are all up to date. Things were scrolling just fine a couple of days ago, and I have not made any changes to my computer or browser since then.

EDIT: I would much prefer that user @jscher2000 help me with this, since I've found them the most agreeable to work with. HOWEVER- I will welcome any answers from anyone for the sake of not skipping over anyone who might be/have had the same issue and knows something about it, or at least knows what to do.

Your update to Firefox 25 from 24 F***** Up Everything. Shit canned all my addons?? Can't even open emails?? Your support sucks too! I have 6 years in college in Computer Science, currently work as a Network Administrator for one of the Countries largest leading firms in the IT industry and I had to completely remove Mozilla, remove all registry entries, and reinstall it from scratch! You idiots at Mozilla ever think of asking if we want our stuff updated? Especially since most people don't need to update from X to version X.1 just to go to X.2 tomorrow! Get your shit together! Test your stuff before you release it! I have been a long supporter of Firefox but lately you guys are way out of control!

Can someone offer a legitimate reason why someone cannot figure out how to place a "clearly visible" ICON that you can click to exit full screen mode.

It wouldn't even have to that friggin big, would it.

Where would it be located at. How about right near the point where you clicked to enter full screen mode.

I'd rather get frustrated hunting for it.

And restarting Firefox doesn't friggin help, does it.

Yeh, I found it, hence the post.

Hello, recently I have noticed that when I type in my address bar, I get results that I have not seen before. When i type in "facebook", the facebook page comes up in my address bar, but also in bold black I see a mangifying glass like its a recent search i did, and it just says facebook. When I click on it it gives me a bing search for facebook. How do i remove these bing search suggestions from my address bar? Depending on what im trying to navigate to, i get anywhere from 3-10 searches and I can't see any of my history to navigate.

With each new version you suck a little bit more.

You have become as bad as google, updating and changing for no good reason, in a race to the bottom with yourself.

The whole reason I started using Firefox is because it worked, now after thousands of installs and convincing users to ditch IE you have become just as bad.

I now restart Firefox a dozens times a day on the 3 machines I use daily. The memory requirements are staggering and FF is now SLOW.

First thing out of the box you will say "you have too many add ons", sorry, I only use one, noscript and not even that on 2 of the three machines.

Three tabs open and nearly 600,000K and using 1-12% CPU just to type this text.

Don't bother with an answer, just clean up your mess. In the alternative we can all wait for someone to come along and eat your lunch. Give me a browser that WORKS and I will forget Firefox ever existed.

Error message below.

Connection to registration was unsuccessful. Quicken registration requires cookies and an internet connection. If there is an error registering Quicken, follow the steps below to correct the issue.

Connectivity

You are not connected to your the internet. Try browsing to a web site such as www.google.com using a browser such as Internet Explorer. Quicken may not be part of the allowed software that your Firewall program allows to connect to the internet. Please consult your firewall software instructions on how to add Quicken to the allowed programs. Some virus scanners prevent the connection. We have seen rebooting your computer will allow Quicken to connect. Make sure Internet Explorer browser supports 128 bit SSL encryption. You can confirm this by opening Internet Explorer and clicking Help and about Internet Explorer from the menu bar.


I also tried to go through Explorer, but Explorer says "isearch.avg.com" is not set up to establish a connection on port "World Wide Web service (HTTP)" with this computer so I could not follow the instructions below.

Check Your Internet Explorer Privacy Settings

If you use Internet Explorer 6.0, the following procedure shows you how to change your privacy settings to allow cookies. You may still be able to use these steps as a general guide for other browsers, but you should consult the manufacturer's instructions for your browser if you need additional assistance.

Launch Internet Explorer. Choose Tools menu > Internet Options. Click the Privacy tab. Select the appropriate option: If your Privacy settings are Custom, click the Advanced button, select the Override automatic cookie handling check box , select Accept for First-party Cookies, and click OK. If your Privacy settings are not Custom, adjust your settings to Medium High or lower on the slider. Click OK. Register Quicken. Check for Viruses or Spyware on Your Computer

Quicken requires a secure Internet connection. Many viruses, spyware and adware will interfere with Quicken's ability to establish a secure connection. Make sure your virus protection is up to date and run a full system scan.

There are many third party systems that will scan and remove spyware and adware from your computer. Intuit recommends periodically checking your system for spyware or adware and removing programs you do not want on your computer.

I'm afraid to click on the update message because it might be spam/virus/whatever. Mozilla tells me I've downloaded the latest version of Firefox successfully.
