The above options are no longer visible in Firefox. I'm using Windows 7Pro. I have tried the previously listed solutions (safe mode, default theme). I am already using the Default theme and have no appearance add-ons or plug ins installed. I upgraded to version 41 today and the problem persists. Firefox is the only application with which I have this issue.

http://bootsnipp.com is a snippets website I just cannot copy the snippets. It selects the code box but when I copy and then paste I literally get only this "?" I hope you can see its like those font icons that don't render properly on Firefox. I tried the safe mode but it just wont work. It works fine in chrome. Nobody else on the internet seems to have this problem(I guess they are not firefox users).

So don't tell me to start in safe mode I already did that. I am just getting frustrated here this is the 10th time this month I have had to open up google chrome to do some important work. FF has become worse than Internet Explorer I migrated out so many years ago. this is just so frustrating. Because I can troubleshoot really well and figure stuff out. But lately the problems with FF have just been strange with no explanation at all.

Hello,

I could also noticed that sometimes FF does not finishes the its downloads : that point is really annoying (I'm using Download manager S3 which is really basic). Some times (specially when the Internet connexion is heavy loaded (e.g; when a lot of download are done by uGet at the same time) , some downloads simply put them in standby, without the ability to restart them which is very annoying.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have been using Blur aka DoNotTrack with Firefox for years. Since the last up date its acting up. Its not a "signed" add-on and I can't find a way to get around that. Is the fact that it is unsigned by Firefox why I'm having issues with it? It is a very good add-on I've been using for years. The company has never let me down. If you could let me know what I can do to have my browser like this add-on that would be great. Gregg

Simple question. I saw a new version of FF 41.0.2 when I saw it at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/releases/ . Now it has disappeared. Am I at risk of anything horrible. It still can be seen at https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/ Seems to be working fine. Can someone tell me what happened? Am I at any risk greater than I was with FF 41.0.1?

I am NOT going to be nice. Here's descriptive - I turned OFF the "Query OCSP responder servers to confirm the current validity of certificates" option. Has no effect. Still I get this error:

An error occurred during a connection to **removed**.com. The OCSP server has refused this request as unauthorized. (Error code: sec_error_ocsp_unauthorized_request)

You ... ... won't even let the website load. Try again. Try again. Try again. Try again. Try again. Try again. The site certificate is fine as evidenced by SIX different SSL certificate checker websites. I can't add an exception because FF can't get the certificate.

I've tried clearing everything - cache, history, cookies, yada yada

I am SO Annoyed you people have cost me more time.

It's just fine in IE and Chrome.

If I didn't need firebug, I'd switch to Chrome right now.

On a website that lets you customize certain pages, I've noticed that I can't see certain fonts correctly. On a page that I was customizing, I was using a papyrus font. It seems to work fine for others but I don't see that font on my screen. The first image is what you're supposed to see and the second is what I see.

And on some sites, I don't see the fav icon in tabs.

I've tried hard refreshing, restarting the session, restarting my computer, and updating firefox, even though it was already up to date. I feel like I'm missing a plugin or something and I'm not sure what to do. Thanks.

I noticed what "Bookmark all tabs" feature stopped working at one point (in fact, Crating Folders from Bookmark Tab menu was not working either). I found the cause - Tab Mix Plus. Uninstalled - everything is back to normal. But I miss Tab Mix features - Duplicate tab, open closed tabs, etc.

What can I do? Is there a way to troubleshoot this issue?

I have the "Firefox title bar" enabled (default behavior, I believe, when FF installs), which hides the Windows title bar. This makes the viewport just that little bit larger, but the Windows title bar color indicates when a window has (or loses) focus.

The default theme that comes with FF changes the Firefox title bar color when the browser window loses focus, but the coloring of that theme makes some text and icons difficult to read/recognize. There are themes available that use pastel colors (which makes the text and icons easier to see), but I cannot find one that changes color when the browser window loses focus. Can someone please recommend a theme that makes text and icons easy to see, but that also changes color to indicate when the browser window has or loses focus? Please note: same issue for latest Thunderbird (currently 38.2.0), which uses the same UI.

Thank you....... :)

Hi, I have reviewed many similar posts but none of them works to fix my issue. Issue: "This Connection is Untrusted" with "sec_error_unknown_issuer ". But NO option of "I understand the risk". My firefox suddenly could not access websites such as YAHOO Mail, Google Mail, Facebook, Linkedin....etc while firefox is able to access other regular websites. Other broswers (IE, Chrome) do not have this issue.

Steps taken 1. Confirmed Date & time is correct. 2. "Certificate" shows these websites are in the list 3. Cleared Cache and cookies. 4. I am in company network. So I have to be either "auto-detect proxy" or "use system proxy setting". If I change to "no proxy", then Firefox could not get into any website. 5. deleted cert8.db

None of them worked to fix this issue. Please help to solve this issue. Thanks

Firefox still crashing/crashing/crashing... GFX1 GraphicsCriticalError

More details: Updated to latest Firefox 41.0, installed latest Flash, configured (with "Ask...") to block unless explicitly allowed. Only other update is ABP (AdBlock Plus), which is now considered manditory add-on. All works fine, until random crash, typically once or many times per day. System is an HP-Intel 32-bit box, 2 gig memory, stable as a rock - many other programs, including video, audio, math-calcs, big graphics programs (WGNUPlot, APL's ,etc...) *all* run flawlessly. System runs a patched (clean) WinXP-SP3. Numerous tweaks to limit lots of actions, stop autoplay, prevent any remote-desktop or Windows messaging, no Outlook or "cloudy" nonsense. Packets in and out are inspected, etc, etc... Solid box. Only weak point is Firefox browser.

I undertook to re-install the Intel 6.14.10.4764 driver, just incase it had become corrupted. It wasn't. Adapter ID is 0x2582, which is VGA standard, AdapterVendorID: is 0x8086 (which is Intel), AdapterSubsysID: 300d103c, AdapterDriverVersion: 6.14.10.4764. System has been scanned, is clean and stable. HP, Microsoft and Intel diagnostics report no conflicts or technical issues with any drivers. Network protocol is only TCP/IP, (NetBIOS support removed, just to see if it made any difference..)

The "details" on Firefox crash report indicates problem is: GraphicsCriticalError GFX1 - Failed to create device / Could not initialize the DeviceManagerD3D9. A snip of part of the "details" report, generated by Firefox, after it's crash, is provided below:



Start of Firefox "Details" Crash Report snip -----

end of portion of Firefox Crash "Details" report ------

What causes this? Is it related to an attempt to run Flash or OpenH264 ? I have OpenH264 plugin disabled, and Flash plugin (version 19.0.0.185) set to "Ask to Activate".

This is way beyond annoying. Firefox - latest version 41.0 - is now so unstable, I will have to dump it, if I cannot get a solution or at least a preventative workaround. The feature to disable javascript has been hidden, and java operation is unclear. For now, Firefox has become so unreliable as to render it useless. Is there an obvious solution here? What else produces "GraphicsCriticalError" ? If I can resolve this, I will post a followup to this question. Also, I clicked the "Share Data" button, and have included Firefox details produced.. - Russel

I started having a problem with my yahoo e mail recently it started out just working slower than usual then it stopped letting me compose any mail. I am still able to receive and read my mail but it works very slowly nothing like it used to. I have upgraded my system to windows 10 but this didn't happen right after I did that it was working fine with windows 10 for several months before this happened. I contacted yahoo about it they checked out everything and said it isn't a problem with their program and I can compose e mails using a different browser without any problem. I can also compose using firefox and my msn outlook act. I really would like to get this fixed since the yahoo mail is my main one that I have been using for years now and all my contacts are through it. can you help me? I refreshed my firefox like your troubleshooting guide said to try and it didn't make any difference. Also disabled my virus protection and any other program that may interfere with it still no difference. I had everything the way I liked it before , but now I have to do it all over again Is there an easy way to do that with the folder you gave me of all my previous add on etc.?
