Why won't the Firefox icon stop jumping up and down on my dock? (OS X 10.9.1)

Posted

I'm using a MacBook (late 2008) with OS X 10.9.1. The icon for Firefox will not stop jumping. It was exhibiting this behavior before I started it as well as after while I was using another application. I have not seen this before. I am using the latest version (26.0) of Firefox so it wasn't an alert to update. It is even doing this as I type this info.

Hi ppalan, The only time I have seen this is if there is an update notification, there are a few things that can cause this: updates on add ons, automatic updates to Firefox.

When did this begin to occur? and how do you launch the browser, manually, or on start up?

If you right click and close the browser and open in a new profile does this still happen? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-fi...
