Hi,

Whenever I try to open a web page that has a vine video in it, firefox crashes. This happens everytime. Even opening http://www.vine.co will crash firefox. I noticed the same thing with this website www.flashscore.com, whenever a team scores, firefox crashes. I tried running firefox in safe mode, I even made a complete uninstall and reinstalled, same thing. I really don't want to use another browser. Your help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

for 36.0.3 but there are none. So was this a legitimate release without documentation or did I just get snookered into installing rogue software?

I am another former Tab Mix Plus user, and I had grown accustomed to being able to open new tabs adjacent to current open ones. I tend to keep multiple tabs open, and really dislike it when new tabs open at the far right. None of the available add ons seem to address this issue. Does anyone know of a solution?

the page http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/10.0.2/whatsnew/ keeps on opening when I start Firefox. It also keeps asking the same question about helping to improve Mozilla - Even though I have answered the question several times. I am sick of seeing this same screen, when all I want to do is see my normal homepage prior to doing some browsing. Please help me get rid of this screen.

Hello! New Firefox user here, since I got too annoyed with IE crashing. So, I often download PDF documents from the Web. With IE, you get a pop-up that asks you to pick a location in which to save the download. I like that. But with Firefox, all I can do is download it to some "library" that I can't find on my computer or retrieve the articles from. My two questions:

1. Where is that library? On my computer - where???

2. I want the articles on a flash drive, not in some library. How can I specify to Firefox to save the article on my flash drive or desktop, instead of that library?

Thank you!

My search field has stopped working. (I'm not sure if that's the right name for it - it's the field containing "EMF" in the attached screen shot.) I can type into the filed, but when I hit the search arrow or the magnifying glass (to select a search engine), nothing happens.

I tried "refreshing" FF. It wiped out my add-ons but didn't change the problem.

Do I need to uninstall/reinstall FF completely? Would that fix it? Any other options?

~ Thanks in advance ~ Ken

Firefox version 3.6.18 and Yahoo mail classic . All buttons within the browser to check mail/inbox do nothing (shows blue bra loading at top of window but status bar indicates done). Most will if I right click and select open in new tab/window.

Windows 7 starter with java and flash updated. Works with IE8.

I removed and updated to latest version 6.0 and still had same problem. I hate the new ad driven interface with the latest Yahoo mail and will stay classic as long as I can.

I know they are phasing out Yahoo Classic mail but in the meantime is this Yahoo problem?

Just installed Firefox Dev Ed, haven't even signed in or anything, I simply imported my bookmarks (one attempt from chrome and one from an .HTML file) and when I go to open up the sidebar panel, Firefox crashes. I cant click on anything inside the window, cant close it, nothing. and it just stays there until I go into the task manager and kill it.

I'm running Windows 10 Home Insider Preview - Build 17035 (64-bit), and no other apps are running when doing this.

Any Ideas?

When I try to log in to firefox to access the internet mail (yahoo) I get the following message.."You have asked Firefox to connect securely to us.mg6.mail.yahoo.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure. Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verify If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue." So I have stopped using Firefox for the last two weeks and need to know what to do. I like Firefox so this will be unfortunate if I have to quit using it.

I've updated to Firefox 11 and now I can't open online pdf's. This has happened on more than 1 computer, using both OS 10.6.8 and OS 7.0 and on more than one website. I tried unchecking "block pop-ups" under preferences but that didn't help. When I use Safari to open the same pdf's, they open up fine. Everything worked fine with my Firefox until I did the upgrade.

I'd prefer to continue to use Firefox, but I can't figure out the root of the problem.

Has anyone else had this happen as well?
