In recent weeks Firefox has begun to crash repeatedly and unexpectedly - mostly when I click to open it. I often get the infuriating "well this is embarrassing" message. Most unhelpful. I send you the report of the crash and expect to hear from you as to why I am having problems but nothing happens. I can't find how to locate the "about:crashes" in the location bar. Can you explain this.

Hi,

Thanks for any help in advance.


Of course the new Firefox is messing with me...But I have one specific question...

Facts...

1) I own a iMac...17 inch...So I can open lots and lots of tabs at once.

2) I just rebooted my computer back to brand new.

3) I'm working on finding all my old stuff, but can't seem to find two specific items...

In the previous version, and before I rebooted, I had about 40 tabs (Including Cluster Tabs) opening-up whenever I started a browse session. But now, I can't seem to control the size of the tabs, so they get less narrow as I had them?

I've already downloaded "Vulcanize Tabs" but that's no help...I think it was a specific theme that allowed me to do this, but many of the themes don't work with this new version of Firefox.

I suspect I'll just have to wait until the themes are updated? Or, do you have a better idea?


Also...

I want to get rid of the "X" on each tab and only have a close tab button on the far right of my tabs navigation bar.


Any help?

If so, thanks again!

Ps...Is there a way to reverse my downloading of this newest Firefox version and go back to the previous one until this new one gets many of the bugs worked-out?

A couple of months ago I forgot I had left my computer on when I walked away while browsing the web. When I came back some hours later there were pop-ups promoting porn sites on the screen. Firefox was locked up and I had to "force quit". Since then I have problems getting a new window. If I make repeated attempts, multiple windows open simultaneously sometime later. Toolbar menu buttons and add-on toolbar buttons work at first but often stop functioning after half an hour or so. When this happens, I generally have to "force quit" to escape Firefox. I have tried deleting Firefox from my computer and downloading a fresh version but the problem continues. No other program seems affected. I have Integro Virus Barrier X5, and I am running a trial version of X6, but I have found no sign of any malicious software. Suggestions?

I have been unable to download graphics on web pages that use a lot of them, i.e. Facebook, New York Times, etc. but everything is fine with other sites. It's not just a Firefox problem, Chrome and Safari are the same way. I've cleared out cache, started a new profile, etc. and nothing has changed.

My search bar does not work. I can enter text and the autofill works but when I hit enter or click the magnifying glass, nothing happens. (The location bar is working). I can change the search engine from google to other default engines but they don't search either. When I open "Manage Search Engines" the menu opens and I can make changes but then it won't leave and I have to force quit firefox to get back to normal browsing. This is driving me crazy, please help! I've tried restarting the search engine, my computer, modified settings as suggested by other pages, but nothing helps. (Safari's search bar is working, but I don't like using Safari so I'd really like to figure out how to fix this).

Firefox is extremely slow for the past couple of weeks. I can't even open my banking site. I can't scroll or type without painful delays. I keep seeing the color wheel spinning and then after several seconds, it seems whatever is happening is finished and things return to normal for a few more seconds and then I get the same thing. Everything is fine on Safari.
