This has been going on for years. When I have 3 or 4 tabs, especially facebook open, and am watching a youtube video Firefox freezes up a lot. I just dealt with it but I'm starting to get sick of it. The only addons I use are DownloadHelper and AdBlock Plus. I have a lot of plugins disabled. I don't know what is causing this but I just checked on my CPU Usage and Firefox was using 266,000+ K and that's not counting Flash, which was using 70,000+ K. Someone please help me fix this extremely irritating issue.

PC Details: Windows 7 Home Premium (32 Bit) 3.00 GB RAM 2.10 GHz AMD Phenom Triple Core Processor

I am having trouble backing up my Firefox bookmarks to dvd. I've been backing up the (XP) FAVORITES folder but I just noticed that the bookmarks in this folder are not my present Firefox bookmarks that are displayed on the Firefox Bookmarks "drop-down." Where are the bookmarks located to see them and burn them to dvd using Ulead Burn Now? I followed the path C:>docs and settings>user name>application data>Mozilla but I couldn't find any bookmarks inside any of the folders within the Mozilla folder. Shouldn't I be able to see these bookmarks in some folder? Thanks for your time and consideration. A.C.

I am now getting the 'well this is embarrassing...' message EVERY time I open Firefox; I have my Home page set to always open 9 tabs - these are the SAME tabs I have opened at start-up for about 2 years - WHY this annoying message now?! When I click 'close' the Home page opens with all the tabs with no problem, but the message is really irritating & doesn't seem to be telling me anything, as there isn't a problem with any of the tabs? NB: In case you ask 'why 9 tabs'?; these are essential websites I use every time I am browsing/working; I cannot keep opening them manually every time. Please advise why this message comes up as here seems to be no problem, & how I can get rid of it? Thanks.

Pages with web fonts, like http://google.com/fonts, are not rendered correctly. All text that should be web fonts is shown with the default font. This is Firefox 20.0 on Ubuntu 13.04 with Gnome 3.8. - Starting in safe mode does not help. - neither does starting with a new blank profile. - There are no error messages in the Error Console. - Javascript is enabled. - not allowing hardware acceleration does not help. - the "Allow sites to use their own fonts" option is checked. - I am not behind a proxy.

What else is there to check?

When I go to the Tools menu, there is no option for private browsing. The option was there earlier today when I was using version 19.something (I checked the version when another computer in the office had upgraded firefox and had the same problem) When the browser upgraded to 20.0, private browsing disappeared.

Hello everybod,

google cache doesn't work via firefox any more. At least not for me. I HAVE emptied firefox cache, have restarted my computer, and it still doesn't work. It doesn't work via email explorer either. I'm asking here because google, as we all know, has no customer service, so I don't know who else to turn to. Got any info or advice? Please???

Thank you for your help!

Hi, Just a few hours ago, firefox has updated itself to the new version, 20.0. After restarting, it seems all working fine. But when I did right clicking to view the context menu (and copy image location), I saw a long list, with options like "Pause", "Play", "Mute" and so on.

Here is a shot: http://2imgs.com/2i/i/515c6224/79903d27bae38742936c6eea68084f43/d1af1c36e5.f.png

They are in the question. I was very pleased with the old download box, I have a mac so when I got the new update from firefox, I was very surprised to see I can't look through the old downloads and can't see the speed in which the current file is being downloaded, it doesn't make sense to cut those options off...

When I start up Firefox takes a good 1+ minute(s) to load the homepage or any other page I try to type up. I've figured it was either one of two things: Firefox itself, or Flash, which is having problems loading games as well as initializing when I try to uninstall and reinstall it the regular way. My brother's account on this computer is not having any of these problems. I've done everything both Mozilla and Adobe says with both Firefox and Flash, but nothing is helping.

I know Firefox 20 can open all downloads in a tab with “about:downloads” via the address bar. Also it’s known when clicking on “Show all downloads” in downloads pop-up, the downloads portion of library is shown. Is there any way to open that “about:downloads” tab with “Show all downloads” link? I’ve seen this behavior in Private Window, but I want it for non-private too.

Regarding old Firefox folder that strangely appeared on my desktop---may I delete it? I like a clean house. Did not read where anyone asked that question and got a specific answer. It has been there since March 10th, according to the properties button. I just noticed it. But I do not want to delete anything where I may lose extensions or something else. If it is just a backup, can't I just get rid of it. I would not know what to do with it anyway.
