So this has been bugging me for weeks.

I keep having Firefox crash on me every single day, usually in the morning everything runs smooth and there's no problem, at night if I have a full screen YouTube video with just the Reddit homepage in another tab, it crashes constantly, sometimes I can't get further than 5 minutes watching without it crashing.

It's worth noting I'm having constant 'display driver has crashed' errors as well when gaming but for the most part I THINK they're unrelated to why Firefox is crashing, I'm not 100% certain. Aside from that I haven't had any slowness or bugs, but I have had the odd graphical glitch in my browser where it comes up in black blocks but it doesn't happen often.

I've refreshed my browser and the whole delete-reinstall phase, no dice. Even tried disabling all my addons, nothing.

Happy to provide any further help if I can.

Recently, I enabled getting desktop notifications when my opponents in Words with Friends made a move. I would really like to disable these notifications. I have no idea where to do that. I looked in Words with Friends tools and I looked in Firefox and I looked in Facebook (which is where I play Words with Friends). But I can't seem to find the place to disable these banner notifications that pop up in the upper right corner of my screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Ok a couple of days ago I had to do a refresh on firefox has I was getting very slow speeds with a lot of sites, which actually fixed the problem but now iv got a bigger problem that is now firefox will NEVER remember none of my passwords, and I don't even get the box asking would I like to save passwords.

Iv check all the settings ie Private browsing is set to off / Remember log in sites is checked, made sure that clear settings was all turned off when shutting off FireFox ect ect, and even when i open up the saved logins tab the box is blank, tried to import saved passwords from MS + Chrome ( not at the same time ) it tells me that its done but still nothing shows up and still doesn't remember any passwords when logging in to sites.

I don't have any other password mangers on my system so there is no conflicts at all, everything was working fine apart from slow surfing before I done this refresh

If I switch to another Browser (like Edge) everything is fine. I'm not a techie at all so I'll need the dummied-down version of an explanation. Thanks for your help.

Recently I have become unable to upload my audio files to sites like youtube and sendspace. Files also fail to upload with email attachments. Uploads suddenly stopped working a few weeks ago. I have a Dell Inspiron with Vista Home Basic. Could a recent update on Firefox be incompatible with Vista or something like that? Like I said up until about 10 days ago everything was working fine. Would appreciate any help.


Thanks

Hi this is my first time asking on here as ive tried most things and am stuck....

after the update for firefox (i think 43) it has started Not Responding / Unresponsive Script on some sites.

Youtube.com - when i am on the video manager and trying to add annototins. clipconverter.cc - when converting youtube videos to download, it just crashes and hangs and turns white for about 10 seconds and i cant do anything.

when it does this on those sites it will show a round blue circle as if its loading and then go on and off and on and offagain flashing as if its trying to connect but after 10 mins nothing just does not load the site.

here is 1 of the scripts that it says was "Unresponsive" or something " https://s.ytimg.com/yts/jsbin/www-core-vflYSgAbC/www-core.js:191 " not sure if that will help.

what ive tried...... i have went into about:config and done.... DNS Prefetching IPv6 set as No Proxy cleared cache cookies etc. and i have refreshed firefox

and now here i am as the problem still exists.

has anyone got any ideas why this is happening a it was working great before the update and i have to upload videos on firefox and then go onto internet explorer to edit them and set annototions etc.

ive uploaded a screen of youtube annototions page and its just doing nothing. i have java installed as thats what youtube uses and also the videos all work and play on youtube its just the annototions and edit page that wonte work.


Thanks in advance for the help if any...

I've been troubleshooting for issues of Firefox hanging. It is primarily with one location, full of media content: http://www.theguardian.com/au

First, I closed some windows with many tabs, which didn't help. I followed instructions for increasing speed by changing settings for pipelining, which did not seem to help. I started to, but did not, change places settings. Also looked at suggestions re shockwave, but do not think I followed any.

Then I downloaded YesScript. This has solved the loading/hanging problem. But it has also made viewing comments in their normal presentation impossible. Even when I turn YS off, the comments do not load in a useful way.

Since it now appears that my primary problem is due to javascript, is there any other way I can rectify the problem? Thanks.

This worked last year. I have VB8, VB 2015. VB 2015 works. I can compile programs and it works properly. All of a sudden, I can't compile with VB 8. I end up in Firefox. I even made Internet Explorer the default browser, just in case MS did something sneaky. But Firefox jumps up there with no website visible. I don't want to uninstall Firefox. Can somebody point in the correct direction?

As of 1/15/16 every time I open Firefox and try to log onto one of my Google accounts, I am prompted to enter my six digit code for two-step authentication. I have marked this as one of my trusted computers, and this is not been an issue in the past couple of years that I've been using two-step verification. I did not make any recent changes to privacy settings or cookies. Does anyone else have this problem, and is it related to a recent Firefox update?
