I had some opened tabs for my work and everytime I was opening Firefox, all of those tabs were opening without problems. I am on windows 7 64bit. Since yesterday, when I open Firefox the tabs open but they are all empty (New Tab).

This is how it looks: http://puu.sh/r6nlu/e0484d37db.png

How can I get my previously opened tabs to work again?

Thanks!

I've done the trick where you change the config: "media.windows-media-foundation.enabled" value from true to false. But after the new update to Firefox 35, all vines are just permanently frozen for me. I can see they load up perfectly, but they never start playing.

I was watching Netflix in a single FireFox tab (no new tabs were open), fell asleep, woke up, and there was a new tab open that thanked me for (supposedly) installing this extesnion. I check the Add-ons Manager and it had been installed as an add-on into my FireFox Browser without my knowledge or permission. I live alone, no one was visiting, and my cats aren't -that- savvy! Ha!

There is no excuse for this. Please ban this Jason Savard creep by every means possible, including by his computer's IP address, any smart devices he uses, etc. If you're able to track down his ISP, please report his activities to them, as this kind of activity is illegal and likely against his ISP's policies.

Please also include a reporting system in your Add-ons/Extensions page, or include a "Report Abuse" link on the pages for each extension that FireFox users come up with. I'm not happy about having to "post a question" in order to communicate this problem to you.

PS. I have tried to upload a screen shot of what I saw when I first woke up, however, your image uploading tool is not working. It pretends to upload a file, but even at a high upload speed for my ISP, it can't handle a simple .jpg screen shot (1400 x 900 dpi on a 17" screen). Please fix this issue as well. If you want the screen shot, please email me so I can reply to that email with the .jpg screen shot file. I'm not going to sit here forever waiting for some silly uploading-in-progress icon to never change to "Done" or whatever.

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 48.0 on a WIN Vista PC & when looking at ads. (on Craigslist for example) QR codes (i.e. the actual squares) posted on the ads. do not appear on the page. However, if I look at the same page with IE 9, the squares are visible.

Why is this?

I have just installed the extension called "QR Secret Decoder Ring" (v. 0.7.0) thinking it might help but it's made no difference, as there is no "QR code square" shown to decode!! If the code squares are visible, I am assuming the above mentioned extension will show me what the code says. Is that correct?

A solution would be greatly appreciated, as I have already spent several hours trying to solve the problem.

Thank you.

Tried to get help with my ant-virus program. The techie wanted to access my computer to help him solve the problem, using www.gotoassist.me We tried many ways, including using Safe Mode, but none worked. The download would not open, so we could not go any further. Is this something Firefox has a fix for?

I use Windows Vista on a Toshiba Laptop, and my Firefox is up to date: 49.0.1

I received a message stating that " Total Browser Security could not be verified for use in Firefox and has been disabled." Total Browser Security is made by Mozilla which makes Firefox!!! So Why in the heck could it NOT BE VERIFIED for use in FIREFOX?

So I would like to Delete it/Remove it from my list of "Extensions". however I have tried to remove it following all of the suggested methods, but have been unsuccessful. Is there a way to actually remove it?

Also, would the Total Browser Security disabled keep causing the Adobe Flash Plug-in to crash, and cause all of my web browsers to freeze and crash and then cause my computer to freeze? Or could that just be due to my computer being 9 years old?

I plan on building a new computer either later this year or early next year, whenever I get the money. I am trying to make this computer last.

Mozilla support does not receive these questions and calls for help?...this goes to community? How customer facing is this? Not very.

I just set up Firefox this morning. I used it years ago but became disenchanted with it dropping my sessions and telling me that Firefox cannot find this site.

Today, in the short time I have been using Firefox again I am repeatedly asked to log in on Facebook & Yahoo mail. Those are the only two sites I have been on today. I could not sign in fast enough on Yahoo Mail to keep up with the sign in messages so I got out of it.

I just set up Firefox this morning and Just being on Firefox such a short time it has so annoyed me by asking me to log in again, again and again. 20-30x and I have not been online much today. This is absolutely ridiculous.

Having people choose to be kept logged in and to save their passwords to try to get around this failure of Firefox is incredible. It is unsafe to their sessions on those sites and it also makes them more exposed to break ins by crooks.

I am not sure what to do to avoid this short of not using Firefox. Does anyone have a solution for this?

Thanks, jaaess
