After updating to Firefox 27 all webpages take a few dozen seconds to several minutes to load. When loading a webpage Firefox's status displays "connecting" and the CPU gets maxed out with 95 to 100% of its cycles taking by Firefox.

The computer is older so it is a little slow but Internet Explorer 8 has no trouble opening the webpages and neither do other computers on the LAN so it is not a network issue. I have tried restarting Firefox, disabling add-ons, deleting add-ons, disabling hardware acceleration, restarting the computer, and reinstalling Firefox after wiping every trace of it and its user data from the hard drive and registry.

CPU: AMD Athlon 2800+ 2.08GHz RAM: 1GB OS: Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 32bit

Whenever I use Facebook dynamic search, Firefox stops responding. This issue also involves writing a new post/comment using the at-sign, which starts dynamic user search.

  • Before update from FF27 to FF28 it did not happen. (I use Windows 7.)
  • Safe mode does not help.
  • Clearing cache and deleting Facebook cookies does not help. Neither new profile nor clean install helps.
  • There are no crash reports within Firefox as well as no Windows error logs generated.
  • Other browsers on this computer do not have this problem, another computer with FF28 that I use works well. Firefox 28 on this computer with Ubuntu Linux works.

Edit: I got Firefox not responding even at going through conversations (messages). So I can generalize that any operation at Facebook, during which three "waiting" bars appear, can lead to the not-responding state of Firefox.

The Firefox plugin checker is reporting "vulnerable - Update Now" for my Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.510.13. and Java(TM) Platform SE 7 U51 plugins.

The 'update now' link takes me to the Java download page which invites me to download the latest Plugin 7.51. but i already have 7.51 installed so the plugin checker is incorrectly displaying "vulnerable - Update Now". I have had 7.51 installed since January 17th and run the plugin checker on a weekly basis so i'm not sure why it has suddenly decided that this is a vulnerable plugin.

I am running Firefox 28.0 on Windows 7

thanks ...

Facebook crashes Firefox when typing a comment by making "@" suggestions.

This is the same problem as https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/987650

What the moderator, cor-el, did not understand and the poster could not seem to explain is that it is not Firefox's autofill that is the cause of the problem. So, clearing the forms history will not fix this issue.

It is Firefox's reaction to Facebook's attempt to present a dropdown list of friend and page suggestions for addition to your comment the same way it would if you typed "@" first. FB's attempt to make things simpler for it's users by doing this without the "@" symbol seems to be causing a conflict in Firefox that totally freezes the browser. "Mozilla Firefox (Not responding)" is displayed and no amount of waiting changes things. No option for a crash report or anything but to close it.

It happens randomly when typing in a comment or status, usually after 2 or 3 letters into a word that matches the first 2 or 3 letters of someone in your friends list or liked/followed pages/groups or even other commentators. Unfortunately, for me, that means even typing "the" can cause this issue. As far as I can tell, there is no way to turn this off in FB's settings.

I understand that this is caused by Facebooks implementation of the feature, but it is my hope that someone at Mozilla can offer a fix or patch for this since it's unclear how many FF users are affected and it may take some time before FB addresses the issue.

Please help. I would really prefer to not have to type my comments in Notepad before pasting them on FB.

Thanks.

Using FF 29.0 or 29.0.1, session storage seem badly broken.

All commands for restoring previous sessions are disabled (whether or not they are from an extension), and even when the browser gets restarted (for example when an extension is installed or updated) all the sessions get lost: I click Restart in the extensions tab with 10 different tabs opened, and the restarted Firefox window contains NOTHING but the default startup page (on which, by the way, the search box doesn't work at all).

Before someone asks, I've already tried all the standard suggestions:

1) Tried with a new empty profile with NO extension at all 2) Tried deleting ALL profile info, uninstalling FF, then reinstalling and using the default empty profile with NO extensions whatsoever

And the problem is still there: session storage does not function (sessionstore.js doesn't get created).

The only thing that solved the problem was reverting back to FF 28, which I have done.

(By the way, this bug led me to discover another thing which I consider a total ergonomic failure: in FF28 the "check for updates" button in the about dialog MUST be called in another way: this button DOES NOT check for updates, it INSTALLS updates! In fact, if clicked, it does not check and tell me if a new version is available: if the new version is available, having clicked "check" is interpreted as "Download and immediately install the update", and NOTHING can be done to stop this when clicked; even closing FF results in the updated version being installed as soon as downloaded, and the only way to get back to the previous version is to download the specific installed from mozilla and reinstall it! This is NOT a version check, this is a forced update a la M$!)

Any other suggestion form the experts?

I am using the latest Firefox (28.0) on Windows XP in a shared computer environment. Although I do not have Administrator access, I installed Firefox myself and can change whatever Firefox config settings I want (including about:config and mucking with the files in the installation directory).

I want to disable the tab that appears on Firefox startup, "Another program on your computer would like to modify Firefox with the following add-on". This tab usually appears once per day (the first time I startup Firefox each day). I want the tab not to appear at all, from now on.

The "another program" in question is some program that is used in the facility where I'm using the computer, so I can't just uninstall that program. Although this is a shared computer environment, they don't "wipe" the machine every day, just reboot. So the Firefox I installed is still there with all my config settings intact. As far as I know, I'm the only person who uses Firefox on this computer.

Solutions that don't work:

"Just click Continue" -- but then I still see the "Another program" tab every day, and don't want to see it.

"Click Remove in the Add-ons list" -- I removed the Add-on in question but the tab still appears every day.

I would like a solution that either eliminates the Add-on request for that particular application, or eliminates all such requests ("Another program...") regardless of what application requested it. The ideal solution would be if the request itself had a checkbox for "never ask this again" but, alas, no such luck.

Hi

We use FFox in a corporate environment due to issues with IE on certain intranet pages.

The existing version 17 had a number of files that we used to customise and lock down firefox, ie preventing users going in in safe mode etc.

These files no longer appear to be present in v24.2.0

I need to prevent users from pressing the shift key and entering ffox in safemode as they could disable/remove the plugins we use to assist locking down the application.

Can someone please advise on how I can achieve this in this version.

thanks

Accidentally (2 days ago) deleted my firefox browsing history by running CC Cleaner on windows 8.1. The index.dat reader I use tells me that Win 8 doesn't use such files anymore. The "places.sql" file in my profile folder has all my history in it. But it still doesn't show up in the history tab or the search bar (the dropdown display of matches, when I type a few characters) i.e the browser acts like there ain't no history. The history tab shows just 2 days' history !! yelp!!

I really need a new IP address. My whole info I believe has been compromised. I have so much going on with my e-mail address that I can't change it because of job applications, gov. contacts, family contacts, my whole life was put in this IP and e-mail through yahoo that I will literally be dead in the water without help. They hacks are so crafty they have been calling my cell phone to get a voice recognition recorded. I get calls from a place asking if I'm some African guy. THIS IS TERRORISM! I'm being attacked. Some one is trying to say they are me, I try and not take it personal but I AM. They are mocking my character and my ability to be crafty. They picked the wrong guy. "What if" I had members in my family that worked for the Government and needed my safety to be SAFE for theirs? Please Mozilla get down to the bottom of this for me. Tell me I have an over active Imagination, so I can laugh at myself. If not tell me other wise, I WILL cooperate to catch this thief. Let us lay a trap. They are blocked from this screen, I have a green lock on it in the corner. That is, if my suspicions are right. Thank You.

                                      Sincerely, A concerned customer.
