Whenever I try to visit webpages, it crashes. Google, sometimes, or anything I click from google, at all. Constantly. As you can see from the crash IDs, it was crashing OVER and OVER and over. pretty much everything is crashing it.

Interesting to note, however, is that the non-internet stuff doesn't crash it. I was able to open the crash reports page, and the help; troubleshooting thing with no trouble.

This is infuriating, as I cannot browse with mozilla at all, and I don't really like chrome.

EDIT: Worth noting, other browsers are not doing this. At least, chrome isn't, I don't have IE.

I recently upgraded from v3.6 through several versions to v8.01 of Firefox. There used to be a small tab with a plus sign at the end of the tab bar that allowed me to create a new empty tab. It seems to have disappeared somewhere beyond v4.0

What happened to it and how do I get it back? Yes I know I can turn on the toolbar button for a new tab, but having it at the end of the tab bar is more natural to use.

Or I used to type "youtube" and after hitting enter, I was taken straight to youtube's homepage.

What can I do to make it like it was before so it takes me straight to the site? Secondly, my Norton passwords and usernames for all sites that was stored in my "Norton safe" doesn't appear in the browser. Will this be available soon?

Hi, on the home page just under the google search bar in the middle of the page I keep getting the message that I am not running the latest version of Firefox and not getting the most from the web. When I click the link it takes me to the advert for the Android version and the latest version of Firefox. I have the latest version and just in case I downloaded it again, and yet, I still get this little message saying I dont have the latest version. Its not a problem for me but I just wondered why my computer is not picking up that I have the latest version. I also have the computer set so that it takes all upgrades to the software.

When I search using the Google search bar the search results come up from google.de and in German. This has been happening for a couple of months and is incredibly frustrating.

Searches on the web point to changing code, which is beyond my expertise, or changing the Google default settings, which then get lost at the end of the session as I use private browsing. There do not seem to be any other settings either in Firefox or Google that I can use.

As this is a recent problem, is it associated with a Firefox upgrade? And surely there is an easy fix?

cheers  :)

After I upgraded to the latest v8.01 I have lost all my tabbed sites and even when trying to add them and save them with the Tools>Options>General>Start up>when Firefox starts selected feature "show my windows and tabs from last time" it does not hold the saved sites and when browser is restarted it always loses all the tabs and only shows one tab with Firefox home webpage. I need to have several sites open to work and the only way to do that now is to make sure I click the "Use current pages" under General Option in Tools. It is getting very annoying because I keep changing my tabs to different websites during a session and I am used to just closing the browser, relying on having them all back in when restarting Firefox.

At this time, Firefox is virtually unusable on the Mac now.

This is not related to any particular website, although websites with flash or java script or "fancier" I/Fs are assured to crash Firefox.

For example, a minute ago, I tried to enter a search phrase into Google (main page) and crash. I tried to enter a search phrase into Netflix search window and crash. I hadn't seen a crash on the Fox News pages though and they are rich content.

Firefox wasn't doing this before the 8.0.1 update (but I can't distinguish this event from the update of Flash to 11.1.102)

I do know that Firefox is virtually unusable (and I'm in Safari at this moment).

I suppose its possible that something on the Mac changed (firmware) but why isn't there a problem with Safari then?

Its not like I have time for a full fledged debug of another software application!!! I don't (and I AM a professional software developer that develops on ALL the platforms/OS including OSX all versions, Windows back to XP, and Linux most flavors and I'm a Qt expert also)

I've NEVER had this problem before. At first I was leaning towards the Flash update. But now I'm not sure.

If someone would suggest a progression of moves to isolate this issue, I'll take that much time to troubleshoot this. I can't quite believe that more people aren't having this problem.

ok.. I'll start with disabling plugins. Then I'll start backing up to previous versions, starting with Flash, then Firefox as these were the latest 2 updates.

I would like to see all of my tabs in the tab bar without having to scroll. I realize this "shrinks" the tab, sometimes to where they are not readable, but that's what I want.

I open about 20 stock pages and I can easily read the symbol of the stock when the tab is very small. The tab scroll bars and "drop down list" are very cumbersome. Is there something I can change in my about:config to get this back?

Thanks, Gene
