I am really getting fed up with this browser, it is constantly more work than it is worth. The damn thing keeps giving me error messages in individual tabs that are silly and insulting (at the same time), telling me it is sorry but it had to close the damn tab because of some stupid problem it can not even identify. Screws up everything one is doing at the time and happens MUCH to often to be a serious browser. Also, several times a day, that damn thing closes completely dumping everything that is open, including downloads, and destroys hours if not days of work that just go out the windows, who the hell thought this one up. In addition, many serious websites will not support it's functions making me have to use IE or Chrome to do some things that are so simple it is beyond explanation why someone, anyone, who is trying to push the use of a serious browser would allow such problem to persist past the first one, let alone months of the same problems. This browser sucks and is nothing to be used seriously, what so ever.

I have checked her browser against mine (downloaded latest version of the browser from the site last week, after a total hard drive replacement) and the settings seem the same on ll side menu items. She is getting this notice virtually every time she opens a browser page or visits a site.

Firefox is her default browser. Her laptop is running Windows 7.

She is getting extremely upset over this.

Firefox will not create new tabs

I was using the tree style tabs add-on. Firefox popped up a message about a problem with that add-on, which I unfortunately clicked on, and all my tabs vanished. Now not only do I not have my tree-style tabs, Firefox will not create new tabs at all, and "restore session," or "restore all tabs" does nothing. FWIW, in safe mode, it will still give me standard abs at the top.

The Add-ons page offers me "find alternative add-ons," but will not download the alternative it offered me.

I've been a loyal Firefox user since the very first iteration of Firefox, but this has got me ready to bail and find another browser. Really pissed that it gave me no option to read up on what the problem was before killing all my tabs and refusing to allow me to even make new ones in the standard top tab mode without safe mode. I understand there being a problem with an add-on, but this sort of behavior is beyond the pale.

Anyone encountered this problem? Any solutions beyond changing browsers?

Hi I got a problem which I think is caused by Firefox/Facebook.

Sometimes (quite often) when I'm in Facebook and scrolling down, suddenly Facebook starts to scroll on its own and then the cursor starts flickering. The only way to correct this is to restart the computer. Very often when i log in for the first time afters such a restart all my desktop icons are shown wide apart, and the I have to logoff/logon again. Then it works until the next time.

I have switched the hardware acceleration of in Firefox with the same result.

Acctually, it happend right now, and now I don't have Facebook open.

If I can't fix it i have to stop using Firefox!

I am finding many websites do not work properly with Firefox and I am forced to use Chrome. I had contacted support for each website with which I had problems and they all told me to try Chrome. In every instance Chrome worked but Firefox did not.

A few examples of problems: I am unable to log-in on one site, I cannot put any item I want to purchase into the shopping cart of 2 other sites, I can't place a for sale ad in my local newspaper and today I was told I can no longer use Firefox for my webmail account. If I don't use Chrome I can't load new messages or compose messages. Please help.

Thank you!

Hello, I have a really annoying problem with Firefox. Many times when I try to access a bank website or similar that I have saved as a favorite, Firefox hangs up and stops responding without indication as to what may be wrong. This can happen when I open Firefox and go to the site before any other or after viewing other sites first. I have to go to the windows task manager and stop the process. After about a minute or two, I can go back, open the browser and log in to the site without any problem.

I have the browser set not to remember history (which is exactly what I want) and using Bitdefender antivurus. I am not sure if this is a common occurrence or if there is a known fix. Problem is becoming annoying enough that I considering not using Firefox any more.

Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

Thank you
