I've never had trouble with Firefox before. I was using 14.1 when it stopped showing everything the way it was supposed to. I scanned for a virus, rebooted my machine, turned off the plugins and nothing worked so I decided to try Safari. I set up the plugins I wanted etc., used it for a while and decided I liked Firefox better. So I pulled up Firefox and pushed the reset button. This made it worse! I had checked for updates and it said I was up to date. To make sure, I went to Firefox download page and found an update. I downloaded it and the new version was just as bad. So, I decided to upload Firefox 15 - everything was still a mess. Check boxes don't show on any sites but if you remember where they are the spot will still work. Colors are showing up. Everything looks stripped to the bare bones. I deleted Safari and Chrome - I've canned my entire computer for viruses, file fragments, etc. I don't know what else to try! I'm disabled so my browser is my link to the world! I love Firefox when it works - please don't make me go back to IE!

When I use the hyperlink button while composing a message in Hotmail, it produces what looks like a good link. When the recipient clicks on the link he gets: The address isn't valid




         The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded.
      



 Web addresses are usually written like
   http://www.example.com/
 Make sure that you're using forward slashes (i.e.
   /).

They used to work but have been failing for several releases now. I can send a message to my own address and observe the problem. I'm using Firefox 15.0.

If the recipient copies the link and pastes it into the browser address line it works.  The url is ok but the link fails.

If I create the same message with IE or Chrome the link works.

Please let me know when you get this fixed. I'll be using another browser in the mean time.

This site works fine in Safari but not in the latest version of Firefox on 2 of my computers:

http://ase.tufts.edu/biology/labs/levin/resources/books.htm

I've cleared cache, restarted, etc. - no good. On Safari, I see a bunch of tiled thumbnails for various books on Amazon. On Firefox, I see absolutely no thumbnails, just rows of text and horizontal lines (I can't figure out how to upload attachments here).

NBC is streaming the olympics at www.nbcolympics.com , one is required to sign in ONCE. I tried, chose the directv icon, which I use at home, and NBC's login popup is blank, it says essentially it cannot read my login information. I've check ed with friends, they had no trouble using firefox and directv. I've started FF in safe mode, with no relief. I've killed malwarebytes, no joy. The only things running (I am pretty sure) are windows firewall (WIn 7 64 bit) and MS security essentials.

Words w/friends, bingo blitz etc. I do not have the problem when using Internet Explorer or Chrome so firefox is the problem.

I have spent days starting firefox in safemode, disabling add-ons, combing thru help pages in firefox & on facebook sit.  I have the troubleshooting info, but don't know how to submit to you .... please help  as i hate the other browsers.

HW: A quite old Fujitsu Siemens Amilo laptop (Pentium 4 2.60GHz), ATI Mobility Radeon 9600, that sorta thing

SW: Microsoft Windows XP, SP3 (on complete autoupdate), Firefox 15, on beta update channel, Flash 11.3 r300 (on "please notify" update), ATI driver 6.14.10.6375 (updated ... well, a long time ago), Antivir, firewall adequate and running, I guess that's about everything I can imagine pertinent

As said, Flash freezes on 11 second intervals, doesn't crash or hang Firefox though. Once I click on the video slider it plays another 11 seconds ... not really practical for watching 30 or 60 minute long programs, tutorials or such.

I've just endured this for a while (through several updates of both FF and Flash), but the problem remains exactly the same. It's a bit odd and doesn't seem exactly like any other FF problem reported here.

As it's easy to make the problem worse by "just trying things out", I'd like to attempt the lowest risk (and if possible, effort) fix and proceed with extreme caution. I'm working with "senior" equipment here (in computer years), after all.

Thanks for your attention.

When trying to access my VPN site, FF launches a routine to download (but not launch) Juniper Host Checker but stays stuck in that loop, even if host checker has been launched manually and successfully connnected. This was not a problem in recent earlier versions of FF although I've seen that folks had similar problems in FF 7 but that apparently were fixed in FF8.

I am on the beta channel and one would think that Firefox would want to and have an easy way to report issues, but that does not seem to be the case.

Anyway I have found that FireFox 15 just closes unexpectedly from time to time. It does not seem to be a crash (ie there is no freeze nor is there any restart attempt) it just closes--seems to be just like I intentionally closed the program. I would say that it does this every couple of hours--a pain if I am in the middle of something and have not saved, but mostly just annoying. If I leave the computer for any period of time with FireFox open, when I return to the computer Firefox is almost always closed. I have found this to be the issue for both 15.0b1 and 15.0b2.

Thought that someone might want to know; though since there is no way to report such issues I have my doubts. Not sure what the reason is to have us on beta.

FF 15 is constantly jumping from a normal screen to full screen and when it does I loose my menu bar, Navigation Bar, my tabs and my Task Bar. I have to sit with my finger on F11 so I can switch it back when it jumps to full screen. I have tried setting my options and that doesn't help. I know that it will probably be a year (if ever) before anyone replies to this with any help but it's worth a shot.

I've been having a problem on my work PC for a couple of months now, and only found 1 other person suffering from this. The PC is running the newest version of FF just like all my other machines (both mac and PC) but when I try to use the google search box up there *nods upwards* to the right the google page doesn't load I just get a load of these symbols:

��?�ڷ0�^��d�df2����U��?e��n[����?�Վs�9�=�["�Ba+? �B�GA�?ﶡ�*�ɗ_�??�:��m���?

The weird thing is, I have located a URL for google search that doesn't do this, and I can use it normally through this, but if I click on any other google links (video, shopping, help, forums, gmail) it reverts straight back to the symbols. This is also happening on twitter, I can't load ANYTHING form twitter either.

I know it sounds like a google problem, but it's only hapening on this one machine, with FF, all other machines I can use google fine, and obviously through my workaround link I can use google, so I suspect I've broken Firefox :)

Any help would be appreciated.
