Why is the latest version of Firefox 33.0.2 using 100% of my CPU?

Just like the last update to Thunderbird, with no changes on my system, the latest version of Firefox uses 100% of my CPU where it didn't before. I've run every test, disabled my anti-virus, run in safe mode and it makes no difference.

Since there was no useful answers when I posted about the TB problem, I doubt there will be any here.

Sorry Mozilla, but you're about to lose my support. I already moved away from Thunderbird. Now that FF has the same problem, I'm about to switch my browser to Chrome, even though it is not as good.

I currently have Firefox version 33.0.2 and would like to know if there is a way to install a download progress dialog so I know what my download is doing and how long until it finishes. Currently all I see is a flash blue arrow and then I have to wait until the file appears. Thanks

I have a new MacBook Air. I have tried downloading several Download Helpers to download videos from YouTube, but none seem to work. When I downloaded the product "Dowload Helper" I did see an icon on the tool bar. When I would open Firefox I would see it in color momentarily, then it would "ghost". It would never activate or spin on any videos.

I work at an extension campus for a community college and have never had this problem before when searching the college's library catalog. Every time I click to open a book record or see the next page in a list of books, this Security Warning box appears. That is a lot of unnecessary steps to delete this box every time.

Hi,

I want the users to be able to update Firefox themselves. right now it says "Update failed. download the latest version" but when I do that that doesn't work either.

I already unblocked https://aus3.mozilla.org and ^.*mozilla.*$, but that doesn't work. From where do the updates come from? Can I get the update.xml myself?

The web filter we use is Websense Triton.

https://aus3.mozilla.org/update/3/Firefox/33.0.2/20141027150301/WINNT_x86-msvc/en-US/release/Windows_NT/update.xml this URL doesn't work.

have tried all the fixes this system could throw at me, honestly had tried 98% of them myself already, more then once. anyways my issue is this sites like CNN.com, IGN.com, mozilla.org (and some but not all related sites) will either hang and load very slowly or not at all. This issue just started out of the blue a couple days ago. i did not load any new software or patch anything as far as i know (can't speak for auto-updates) I do not have this issue in IE at all. Things i have tried to fix the situation:

1. Ran malware-bytes, spy-bot, norton anti-virus (also disabled all them to ensure no cofilicts there either)to find mal-ware or virus....nothing found

2. uninstalled firefirefox also deleted firefox folders in C:/users/(username)/appdata/local and roaming as well as from my C:/program files (x86)..I then reinstalled Firefox

3. Disabled hardware accleration and also tried it on.

4. Ran in safe mode

5. ran CCleaner

6. changed my firefox profile

7. reset firefox

8. did a system restore

9. did a registry fix check and repair

I might be forgetting a few but as i said i read ever bit this trouble shooting program threw at me and tried it. I am totally at a loss as i can usualy clear things like this up myself. I would really like to get this working and short of the very unappealing, possibly ineffectual re-installing windows, i am out of ideas.

No text on some websites in Firefox

Some websites display no text at all. This is unlike earlier reports (e.g. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1011611?esab=a&as=aaq) where there was some text. There is also no text in the tabs, menu bar or search box.

I am on Windows, and everything was fine before the Firefox update.

I have tried disabling and reenabling hardware acceleration. Other programs are handling fonts without issue.

This reminds me of a bug I reported back with Firefox 4, I think, where there were issues with font formats. However, as far as I can make out, it’s OpenType and TrueType fonts that aren’t appearing, whereas that time it was an issue with Postscript Type 1.

One of the sites with no text is Facebook.

This appears to be happening only on Windows, not on Mac. I haven’t checked on Ubuntu yet.

Why does Firefox crash, every single time I am looking a my page of comics at gocomic.com?

I get an e-mail through gmail that notifies me that the days comics are available for me to read. I open the e-mail and immediately click on the link that takes me to the site and my page of comics. I shut down the e-mail and only have the site page open. Somewhere about halfway through the list, Firefox crashes. Usually it then gives me that "inform Firefox" notice, but it also just tells me that it has crashed and I have to restart Firefox from the desktop. Rarely, it will let me do a "restore" but, as I say, that is rare - I usually just have to restart Firefox and go back to my e-mail and start all over again. Also, when I am on the site, the icons for going forward or back on the individual comics is not showing, I have to guess which icon is under the pointer.

I have not reset Firefox back to original, as I don't really want to do that, since I seem to always lose important information when I do that. I am using the most current version - 33.02. Even while typing this, FIrefox won't show that dash "-" mark, I just hope it's there.

Also, my bookmarks save(exported) file is 12,924 KB in size, which seems rather large to me. And I do have a large amount of sites saved, so...

Any ideas/help?

Thanks!

Michael

Running Firefox 33.0.2 on Mac Mavericks. Set to do auto updates but every time it tries to update firefox, it just gets stuck "connecting" and never actually updates. I tried going directly to Mozzilla and doing it from there but same thing. In last few days since getting these messages to update, in email a script error occurs repeatedly and then Firefox crashes. How can I update when it won't complete it?

On my corporate intranet, there are a couple of internal systems with web interfaces that generate the sec_error_reused_issuer_and_serial error. Every resource on mozilla.org and other sites that I have found lists only two options: 1. get the admin of the site to fix the problem, or 2. temporarily add an exception

Even the Mozilla support article specifically about this error message is not helpful: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Certificate%20contains%20the%20same%20serial%20number%20as%20another%20certificate

I have asked the exact same question here and the question was closed without an answer as well: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/996094

Nowhere have I been able to find information regarding a permanent exception. I understand that ideally, for a public website, the long term fix will be for the website admin to fix the problem, however there must be a way to permanently add an exception in Firefox to completely ignore this error message. I already tried deleting the "cert8.db" file and this has not resolved the problem. I am not interested in any temporary exceptions or temporary resolutions; I am specifically asking how to permanently ignore this error message.

Thanks.
