So I had to reinstall Win10, So a fresh install with Firefox and a new profile (I imported bookmarks). And now everything is sluggish. Videos and .gif are fine, but the UI is lagging. If I open and close tabs I can clearly see them stutter, before it was fluid movement. It's the same if I zom an image (the images get larger and "pops up") I can see it stutter. Same with right click, it takes a moment before it opens.

It was working fine before, but now it's not working properly. I tried to create a new profile and reinstall Firefox, with and without addons, but didn't help.

I started off being unable to print anything. Firefox says it can't find my printer (I paraphase). When I try to find any settings to check, I can't find them. The options that others have listed to resolve these things are options I can't find.

So, then I tried to log on th the Firefox site but can't, as I can't remember my password. hit the lost password option, key in my email address, it says email has been sent. Nothing received although other emails are arriving in my inbox. Check spam, waste bin and so on, but still no email to reset my password.

Wait an hour then go through the same process again. Still received no email after checking trash and spam as well as inbox. Don't have a separate folder for Firefox or Mozilla either.

Have had to create a second account to be able to post this message. I don't know where to turn or what to do next. Does anyone have an idea of what's going on please?

When clicking on the Help/About Firefox link on Firefox, 41.0.1, the popup shows the correct version number but not whether the version is up-to-date. Clicking on the link: https://mozilla.org/firefox notes that I'm up-to-date. On the other hand, occasionally I am getting a pop up message that says something like my computer doesn't have permission to update firefox.

I also have Firefox on my Nexus 7 and I think it's set up to do some kink of syncing of URLs, etc. Might that be what's causing this strange behavior, at least strange compared to my previous experiences.

What's going on?

I had to reset my PC & re-install FF without having a manual backup of the bookmarks first. The reset process apparently keeps all data files but doesn't keep Apps. I'm hoping I can point my new Firefox to the old bookmarks file and ... hey presto.. I get my favorites back? (Thanks in advance for any suggestions)

Everytime I attempt to start Firefox, it crashes. It gives me the crash reporter, but that's it. It won't let me start in safe mode either.

I have tried all the suggested fixes, including resetting factory defaults, and downloading and reinstalling Firefox. I have Norton, which indicates no viruses present. I'm running Windows 7, and have downloaded all the required patches/fixes/etc. from Microsoft.

The odd thing is, I went to bed with it working, then woke up the following day with it crashing, and there weren't any downloads or program installs in between.

Crash ID: bp-2dab4fe9-cb15-43ec-b6d3-a8fce2151010

I attempted to 'automatically add' troubleshooting information, and apparently all that did was try to open Firefox with predictable results (crash) so I opened the details and pasted them below. So now, the above crash is not my most recent, as the directions told me to post, the below crash is. Both are the same issue however -- Firefox just won't start.

When I start Firefox (41.0.1), all network access is completely blocked. Before starting FF, I can access the Web (using Chrome or IE), other computers, but as soon as I start Firefox, all network access (including connecting to other computers) is blocked. Also, my computer won't shut down anymore.

AFAIK, I haven't installed any extensions or add-ins lately.

I have Firefox set to "Show my windows and tabs from last time" on startup. Since upgrading to Firefox 41, I've noticed that it doesn't always remember where I've scrolled to in all of the tabs, which it did perfectly before. Typically not every single tab is affected, but usually a decent portion are. Firefox 41.0.1 did not fix the issue.

I am using Firefox 41.0.1, and on every web page I have to click on the box I am trying to fill in - after every letter - to type.

For example, I go to Yahoo to log into my email, and to type in my email address the cursor shifts to the top address bar after every letter?! It has very recently started this, and I really need a solution please.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.
