I am running Firefox 51.0 Beta 11 and it crashes consistently whenever I try to create a new bookmark. This behavior also exists in Beta 10 version but not prior to that. Once restarted, I found the new bookmark has been created but not completed. I can go ahead complete creating/saving the new bookmark without a problem. But why does it crash?

Closing as duplicate please see and continue with /questions/1148123#answer-938726 ~J99

I'm looking for a Flash or HTML5 video player add-on so I can watch Youtube and other videos from Firefox 51.0 Beta. But all the add-on Flash or HTML5 players in the Firefox add-on library will download but refuse to install because none are compatible with the most recent version of Firefox.

I have instructions for downloading and installing an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow compatible flash player directly from Adobe's website. But there are two Android 6.0.1 compatible files names on the site, and I don't know which one to use.

Should I download and install the Flash player file with the highest alpha-numeric filename, assuming that it is the most recent version, or should I wait until I can get a definative answer from Adobe?

Oh,, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Having an issue with Thunderbird/comcast email account in that messages are apparently sent, but don't display. Asked that help be sent to Firefox/Yahoo account so could read. Firefox asked to change it's password. Did so. New password does not work. Changed three times and still doesn't work. Old pw doesn't work either. Had some issues with setting up "Forum account". It didn't like the Firefox/Yahoo account so switched to Firefox/Microsoft account. What a mess. Please help!

The Server has been rebooted. I have attempted to run Firefox in safe mode (Firefox.exe -safe-mode) and it still fails. I have uninstalled Flash and still fails. Reinstalled to the latest version. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Event log shows an error for Plugin Container muzglue.dll.

All efforts have failed. Any thoughts / suggestions would be appreciated.

Whenever I run a search using Google all the items recovered in the search appear within white text boxes. This makes genuine search items difficult to distinguish from sponsored pages and advertisements. Similarly if I run a Google Scholar search the first thing that comes up is a series of similar boxes for individual scientists that link to their CV-type pages, which is not at all what I asked for. Other links on the GS searches do not show up as previously giving the number of cached items and also where these items might be downloaded.

I thought initially this was caused by some add-on or similar that I had accidentally switched on but I can find nothing of the kind. None of my colleagues are suffering the same inconvenience. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox but it will not go away. What can I do to eliminate the boxes, please?

The following quote at the top of every forum page is cryptic at best:

"NOTICE: We are currently in the process of migrating the site. This means that any new content that is posted will NOT be moved. This includes your forum posts and answers, knowledge base edits, and changes to user profile information. We expect the migration to be complete on February 1st 19:00 UTC / 21:00 EEST / 20:00 CET / 11:00 PDT. Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience. "

Do you explain somewhere what this means to your community users? Sounds like discussions taking place during the "migration" will drop off a cliff. What do we do to continue active discussions? -- jclarkw

All the reports from today, the frequency is increasing as time passes by. I couldn't pinpoint a exact thing that could be causing this (sometimes it crashes as I went to the kitchen, etc, without any new pages loading or anything like it), but the three 7 PM crashes happened when I was trying to log in on a site using google. Thanks for the help

My computer is running slower since I updated to version 51.0.1. When I open the Task Manager, it shows firefox.exe*32 is running in duplicate with two different amounts of memory being used. Also, the same happens with the FlashPlayer Pluginn (24.0.0.194) when I go to play a game on Facebook.

I've tried uninstalling Firefox and then re-downloading it to my computer but the same thing happens. I'm running 64-bit Windows 7.

How can I fix this?

This problem I believe just cropped up with the latest version of Firefox on Windows 51.0.1. When I click on a URL in ANY of my Email Programs it launches Firefox but then Firefox hangs. It does not display the website BUT this only happens if Firefox was CLOSED. If I already have Firefox OPEN then the URL works fine and FIREFOX goes to the website without a problem,

Here's what I've done troubleshooting already.

Tried resetting Firefox....Did not work....Problem remained. Tried completely uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox....Did not work...Problem remained. Disabled Antivirus ( Kaspersky Internet Security)...Did not work...Problem remained.

This problem I believed just cropped up with this latest version of Firefox. I have this same version on another computer with the same antivirus/settings and the problem does not exist.

I'm stumped...I believe I've seen this problem in the past with upgrades but can't seem to find the fix.
