This only occurred after I upgraded to Firefox 25.0. I've already tried all the methods as described here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-already-running-not-responding

Using these methods, it does work. However, after each restart, another parent.lock file is created and the profile folder becomes read-only again. How do I fix this permanently? Move to Chrome?

After having upgraded to windows 8.1 the context menu 'flyout'(extended menu) arrows are now huge... I thought it might have been my DPI which is 108(so I fixed the about:config setting), or it could be something in my chrome.css file... It is neither of the above it would seem. Looking at a fresh install of Nightly also renders these oversized arrows. Any thoughts? Btw, I don't wish to stray from my custom DPI setting in Windows...all was well in 8.0?!

I am so fed up with the error message that adobe flash plugin has crashed. You have had two years to fix this problem and all your suggested solutions do not work. I cannot see any alternative but to go back to Internet Explorer. It is so frustrating when I am checking my emails and click on a link to get the same message over and over again. Why is it that this problem only happens with Firefox? It does not happen with Internet Explorer and it does not happen with Google Chrome. Otherwise Mozilla Firefox is great.

can't find a way to get rid of mysearchdial. no orange firefox tab in browser so can't get to manage add ons and no mysearchdial program in installed programs in control panel so can't uninstall there.

tried changing homepage but no matter what I do, mysearch dial stays there. went to mysearchdial web page, followed their instructions, no use. Tried running malwarebytes anti-malware and it did not see anything. my browser opens really slow. Microsoft security essentials isn't helping either. Tried booting from start up repair disk, didn't find any problem. searching on my computer for mysearchdial or anything unfamiliar doesn't show anything. ran Tune-up utilities on registry, didn't find anything.

What should I try next? Thank you very much.

I've recently built a new computer and de-activated some of the Windows features to make the computer run faster. When I installed Firefox, I continued to get a "This connection is untrusted" error message when trying to access any site requiring login information such as Google, Facebook and even Mozilla's site. When I do access these sites, images don't load and some pages appear as plain text as if there's no CSS file. Applications such as Gtalk won't log in, and I can't log onto MMOs I have downloaded through steam.

I've made a collage of the sort of errors I'm getting. Note that I've tried other browsers (Chrome) and gotten similar error messages.

When I click to open some (not all) sites a new tab is generated. Often the new tab is to respond to a survey or simply an advertisement related to the site I originally selected. Example - click Wells Fargo and an additional tab opens that advertises mortgage rates OR click an online retail store URL and the additional tab offers me to take a survey. This issue began when Windows 8.0 was installed. The update to 8.1 did not resolve the issue. My Firefox is version 25. How can I stop these new tabs from opening in Firefox?

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/986038]

Although I have "remember password" checked, I have to re-enter it every time I open FIrefox - Google is my homepage. To be fair, my username and password ARE remembered, but I would prefer to stay logged in permanently. This only became an issue when I added the PrivacyChoice Tracker Block add-on. I have since removed it from my toolbar. I also had a custom setting for Tools/Options/Privacy with exceptions to cookies but I have resorted back to Remember History. All cookies and cache are cleared. I'm not experiencing any other issues with other sites, yahoo, social media, etc. Just Google. Any ideas what to do next?
