Javascript Application error: TypeError: text is undefined

Posted

Every time I opened Firefox I get this JavaScript Application Error: TypeError: text is undefined. I have so far, disabled my add ons and restarted with this same result. Re installed my JavaScript, with the same result. When I went back to check my add ons, all my plug ins are gone. Says my Javascript was disabled because of the version having problems. This is after I had uninstalled all versions of Java, and had reinstalled Java from your fix. I love my Fire Fox. Everybody says move to Chrome and I don't want Chrome, I want my Fire Fox working properly. It is not adversely effecting my browsing, but never had this problem and am having a problem with the fixes that are given. Thanks for any and all help in advance.

Chosen solution

This issue can be caused by an extension that isn't working properly.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.

  • Use "Disable all add-ons" on the Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode start window to disable all extensions.
  • Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")
