I have already tried restart in safe mode but it still crashes. Installing another profile is not really an option because of my fast dial its not something I can backup and keep the settings. I have the crash reports... I am using Firefox 29 RC1. I already went back to 28.0 final not beta and its still crashing. This just started as you can tell.

Why are FF29 and Australis so extremely bad compared to older Firefox version? What were the developers thinking when producing this catastrophy?

Why are you trying so hard to make Firefox look like Chrome? WHY? Why is Firefox trying so hard to be a bad copy of Chrome? WHY? Why isn't Firefox the nice and functional Browser I once knew? WHY?

Whoever had the idea of making Australis, please kick him out. And if you're gonna copy Chrome, then WHY DON'T YOU MAKE MULTIPLE PROCESSES FOR TABS?! Instead, you're working not make Firefox look dumb. Great.

I need to UNINSTALL the new AOL version - which has totally messed everything up, it won't even open my email - and INSTALL Mozilla's latest most powerful version.

The version I was using (no idea which but relatively new) started hanging constantly ("Script may have stopped running on this page - continue?") then crashed, so thought I"d try this. BIG MISTAKE.

I'm job hunting and need SPEED and NO PROBLEMS. HELP, MOZILLA EXPERTS! I"m Techno-Idiot and require step by step instructions;would LOVE someone who's willing to work with me by phone me for ten minutes MAX to guide me if possible - I'm much clearer verbally!!

Thanks!

With each new version you suck a little bit more.

You have become as bad as google, updating and changing for no good reason, in a race to the bottom with yourself.

The whole reason I started using Firefox is because it worked, now after thousands of installs and convincing users to ditch IE you have become just as bad.

I now restart Firefox at least two or three times a day. The memory requirements are staggering and FF is now SLOW.

First thing out of the box you will say "you have too many add ons", sorry, I only use one, text to voice 1.10.

Three tabs open and over 300,000K and using 1-7% CPU just to type this text.

Don't bother with an answer, just clean up your mess. In the alternative we can all wait for someone to come along and eat your lunch. Give me a browser that WORKS and I will forget Firefox ever existed. (!!!)

I had a problem with an add-on/extension virus called HQ Video a couple of weeks ago and thought I fully solved the problem. I was exploring Firefox about:config and saw that had embedded itself into the Firefox configuration on my PC. Specifically:

Should I manually delete these strings? I know it says that modifying the configuration could void the warranty, but I've already tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox twice now and still the values are there. What should I do?

Like a lot of people my blank page had been hijacked by AVG. This post is not so much a question as the answer. None of the support answers I saw solved the problem but a Google search "avg hijack blank tab" yielded the following link which solved the problem:

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CDgQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fnewmediamike.com%2F2013%2F06%2Fremove-avg-secure-search-toolbar%2F&ei=3odxU_GwAtjooATulYCYAw&usg=AFQjCNHSMcjJYn6pMBa_YKn7KrpkHXftsw&sig2=wruND3cBa_VwyKgbLHKVtA

Basically, when AVG updated their anti-virus program, they by default installed their "AVG SAFE SEARCH" toolbar. They did this while my system was unattended so I was not able to deselect their toolbar during install.

1.) Goto the CONTROL PANEL 2.) Select "Add or Remove Programs" in Win XP, or in Vista: "Programs and Features". I don't know what Win 7 or 8 calls it but it should be similar. 3.) Uninstall: "AVG SAFE SEARCH TOOLBAR" 4.) Reboot if necessary.

Problem solved. Save yourself from rage at AVG.

Regards, Teri

I was trying to respond to the question that was asked on this forum because I found out what was doing it... https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/982727

I tried malaware check, virus check... then figured it out. In Control panel first uninstall the two SnapDo programmes (if you have them - solves the issue of not being able to change your irritating new search options)

Then look for a programme on the list in your Control Panel List called fst_za_17 That's the little naughty that is messing with you... After uninstalling it I FINALLY fixed the freaking issue.

I would like to know what the 'barriers to entry' are for the next gen mobile OSes (Tizen, Sailfish, BB10, Ubuntu Touch etc.). I know iOS and most of the older ones are ruled out because of no support, but I can't come to terms with the development aspects because most of the above OSes (mostly Linux based) use very similar libraries, so I don't understand why porting even the old Maemo version would be difficult. Thanks in advance.

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

I have been having this problem since 06/01/2014 with www.cruzetalk.com & www.9thgencivic.com. I have submitted multiple crash reoprts. I am using an ASUS TF700T tablet with v4.2.1 OS and the current version of FF. I only have this problem with these two sites with the Android version of FF. There are no issues with the current version of the Windows version of FF on these sites. After afew seconds of typing, FF will just crash. It can be a few as 5 or 6 words and if you pause for a few seconds, FF just crashes, or it will crash while you are typing. My usual internet connection is via the local router in my house. My wireless connection speed is 54Mbps and my cable modem connection speed to the ISP is 26Mbps. I am using AdBlockPlus and Ghostery addons also, as I do on my Windows version of FF.
