Im currently using Firefox 40.0.3 but certain pages on Youtube are giving me grief. When I try to open the video's webpage, only the backgroud will load and after a second or two Firefox will automatically return to the previous page I was on.

This cannot be cancelled by pressing the 'stop loading page' button and restarting and clearing the cache doesn't help.

The affected videos will not appear in my playlists even if they were already in there and they cannot be found through searching or channel upload pages. My situation does not affect Chrome and I can use it to search for the videos, get the URLs and paste them into Firefox but the above problems occur still.

I don't know when this happened, but today I noticed that I cannot paste text into youtube comments on firefox. It still works just fine on Chrome. I tried to use an addon to copy plain text only, but that didn't help, nor have I ever needed it before.

Is this google's latest monopoly trick or something, or what is going on?

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 on my laptop and every time I sign on to Firefox and while I'm on Firefox, I get this message: "Runtime Error. C:\Windows\system32\atibtmon.exe. This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way." I don't have this problem on my PC. I recently refreshed Firefox on the laptop because it was running slow and hanging before upgrading to Windows 10. Could this have something to do with the runtime error. How can I fix this problem? thanks

I'm pretty hopeless at this. Just bought it this aft. Now I need to get on line and get things back to normal. Don't know where to start. My laptop has a bad hard-drive. It's on the way out. I prefer desktop anyway. So I sprung for this used computer, which so far has nothing on it. I have no idea what the first step is. So far, I like this unit. But I'm in the dark as to what I should be doing.

Dear support for Firefox. I need help. Elements of Yandex don't work when the history of the browser is disabled. Why is the new version of elements doesn't work? I don't want to include the browser history. Solve my problem please. Maybe I have mistakes in sentences. I hope that you'll understand me.

Ever since I upgraded to Windows 10, my Firefox browser keeps crashing with the message Adobe Flash Player Plug In has crashed. I have and have reinstalled the latest versions of Firefox and Adobe Flash Player. The crashes are constant and are making it extremely difficult to use Firefox as my browser. Neither Adobe Flash Player nor Firefox seem to have a solution.

Your new "signed apps" will not allow use of unsigned after version 41. This will not allow Epson's "E-Web Print" app at present, and description says you will disable rather than allow me to assume risk. I love Firefox, but will not trash my new Epson printer - so will be forced to use another browser. Will you ALLOW users to assume risk for non-signed apps for a longer period, so such exclusions do not occur for those willing to assume risk?

i turned on Firefox today and found out that it's showing a new session instead of my previous session. which happened right after the update. then after i finished using my PC for the day i chose the option to restore previous sessions instead of showing homepage(i don't have one) then i closed and re-opened Firefox. still showed me a new session.

and i also need to mention got one of those hijacker junkwares which seems like i caught before or after the update (i followed online instructions to remove it) but removing it did not solve this problem.


i'm not sure which one is the reason for the problem. so i would be grateful for any kind of help :)

Is this statement below true? If so I will be forced to use another browser. These are safe and well functioning extensions I have installed from trusted web developers. I have trusted Firefox since, well "forever", and now limiting or even causing my extensions to stop functioning is bad. So upset about this and after all these years of having a functioning browser with the ease of making it more my own and having limited use such as with Chrome, Safari or IE is far the worst decision I have ever seen in the history of Mozilla. Hoping some feedback from others may help the developers make a better decision, and hoping Firefox can remain in the top for user-friendly experience. There are enough FREE web extensions out there to protect us all from malicious web sites and virus protection programs we all can use to keep us safe on our computers and web, why would a decision be made to limited extension security be implemented when all is working fine. Even my McAfee SiteAdvisor and Avast Online Security are showing they cannot be verified now with version 40. Ridiculous and bad for consumers who have always liked and trusted Firefox for a more user-friendly experience.


August 21, 2015

Mozilla just announced their intent to deprecate so called XUL-based add-ons in favor of what they call the WebExtensions API within the next year or two. The WebExtensions API is supposed to be mostly compatible to Chrome/Safari extension APIs.

What does this mean for XUL-based add-ons? Well, for starters, Extensions will be dead if XUL-based add-ons with XPCOM access are gone. Simple as that. The new APIs would only allow for a severely limited in functionality, severely stripped down Extensions at best.

Gone will be add-ons that e.g. let you change major bits about the Firefox user interface (e.g. tabs tree add-ons), add-ons that allow you to do more “advanced” stuff than just showing or slightly altering websites, such as e.g. restarting the browser upon click (unless mozilla kindly provides an API for that, which won’t be compatible with Chrome, of course). Add-ons like NoScript will be severely limited in their feature set as well. Say byebye to Greasemonkey and hello to Tampermonkey, with it’s limitations. Want that add-on that lets you change the new tab page for something else or enhances that page? Maybe it will be available, maybe not, depending on if and when mozilla kindly provides WebExtensions APIs for such things. And of course, depending on if there will be an author creating this entirely new add-on from scratch.

What this also means: Almost all your existing add-ons will be broken, entirely, save for some Add-on SDK add-ons, namely those that don’t do anything fancy. Sure, even today, lots of add-ons break, and some add-ons will not get updated when they do and there are no suitable replacements. However, with this change, almost every add-on will be completely broken and in need of major updating by the extension authors. Good luck with that.

It is safe to say, that Firefox will not be Firefox anymore as far as extensions go, but instead will become yet another Chrome-clone.

To be clear: I was furious when the extension signing stuff was announced and then actually implemented, which effectively created yet another Walled Garden, but regarding this announcement I am just sad. Right now, it feels like I just learned my dear old friend Firefox is going to die.
