I had to go back to ver.18 because the plugin container hangs in ver. 19 & 20, and it was worse in 20. also in ver. 20 there was an exe named plugin contain hang ui. to keep Firefox running even at a crawl I had to keep forcing the plugin container to close. I also do not like the fact that my bookmarks can no longer be found which forces me to go through the bookmarks mgr to back them up. I also kept looking for my downloads and finally found them in the library. Is there some way to simplify the browser like it used to be.

have re-installed and repaired my existing Adobe XI, but I cannot print any PDF documents. I keep getting an error message when I try to print. I have checked to see if my Adobe plugin was up to date, and it apparently is. When I try to open a PDF file, first, it asks me to download (or save) the file, and then when I open up the downloaded file and try to print, I get this error message:

"Cannot load library DLBAPRB.DLL. Using Defaults. Error: 126"

My website boscarn wedding cars opens as it should using internet explorer or chrome etc, however recently I received complaints about the layout or display of my website using mozilla firefox. I have investigated and research ways to fix this and have gotten no where. I have no control over people using firefox if they want to, but when it starts effecting my business I have to try and get it sorted. I use windows xp pro but know that this same thing happens on windows 7 and 8 also.

I use daily.com instant website, web hosting to create my website. The site is www.boscarnweddingcars.co.uk please take a look and advise on how to fix this problem.

Please get back to me as soon as possible. this is my livelyhood.

-- Duplicate of /questions/977733 --

Hello, Is there a way to Export (EX:Similar to REGEDIT)-save the entire "tree". Way to export about:config settings? *Native* to Firefox? (preferable) Have not checked ADD-ONS, prefer "Native" as feel more stable.


My Goal (2) 1st- Doing my "Fall Clean" of my PC, (FORMAT C::)  :-) And don't want to have to remember the settings (nor necessarily "Sync" all the same settings again).

2nd-In the future, before making any about:config settings (a.la. REGEDIT) -can make an EXPORT to put back what didn't work.

Thanks!

You took away my address bar. When I call up Mozilla I get the middle of the page search bar and then the request for a donation. Please give me back my menu with all the options and give me back my toolbar. I have asked the question every way I know how and every answer I get assumes I can get to a menu that has the suggested choices. Bur all I get is the search box. Not acceptable. I will have to start using Internet Explorer.

Last three or so months, my FF26+NoScript+AdBlock+BetterPrivacy (with Avast AV Free on my Win XP Pro SP3 PC) is very slow downloading every page from online.wsj.com (the Wall Street Journal). Each page hangs for 1o seconds before continuing and eventually showing. Before I Reset, could some other folks try and advise? I have said Yes to the Troubleshooting Info installer. Now, I am unable to post this question because "Ensure this value has at most 30,000 characters (it has 37,355)." Is that because my Troubleshooting Info is too long? There are MANY lines -- maybe hundreds of lines -- that start "print.printer_ " So, in the Troubleshooting Info, I am DELETING most of those lines. But I'm saving a copy on a Word doc - how can I send it to you? Thanks.

I have used FF for many years. Even bragged about it to other people.

However, version 27 sucked, and I looked for an actual answer here that might work, but never got one.  Then, I waited and waited for version 28 to come out, and it recently did.  I installed that one, only to have it crash immediately.  did everything everyone asked me to do AGAIN, and it STILL doesn't work.  So, sadly, now, I'm leaving FF and using Chrome.  Going to download it right after this message.  

Apparently, no one really knows whats going on, just a ton of the same answers (did you start it in safe mode?, did you try reinstalling it? did you...did you...did you?" ) YES, I did. thanks but no thanks. My life is way too busy to be having to deal with a crappy browser. FF has gone down hill lately, and I have no time to waste trying to do this, that and the other thing to figure out something thats not my problem to begin with.

So, goodbye Firefox.... Hello Chrome.

There seems to be an issue with opendns free servers

(Locked. Not a support question. See bold text for reasons of locking -m)

This is more of a "I found it" than a question as this seems to be an issue with the opendns free DNS servers related to certain torrent sites and the duckduckgo search engine. However any thoughts are appreciated.

While looking for a solution I followed troubleshooting steps found here to no avail regarding cookies (I'm accepting them from everyone including third party cookies and their dogs), clearing cookies (do that all the time as a matter of routine, did it again several times), clearing the cache (did that, got the T-shirt, now I'll never be naked) and checked the about:config setting (I forget which one but it was already set to 20, the default)

Note that I can eliminate these issues completely by setting my DNS to "automatic" however I've been using opendns free DNS servers for years and have changed nothing except when troubleshooting this issue.

The following is a detailed description. It can be confusing if you don't read it carefully:

I had this happen on several torrent sites however I can get through on others but when I choose the .torrent link I get the same problem on most like at: http://kickass.to/movies/genre/news/ and the KAT mirrors... on KAT I can get to the page but the .torrent links are at http://torcache.net and I am unable to get those .torrents at all. (getting the "the page isn't redirecting properly" Firefox error message and the very long http://guidetest.a.id.opendns.com/?url=guidetest%2E (goes on forever) URL

I'll post a few links that I've tried (just to see if they work) below.

http://www.torrentz.eu/ - can't see the page at all, I get the "the page isn't redirecting properly" Firefox error message and it redirects to the URL: http://guidetest.a.id.opendns.com/?url=g...Ecom%(goes on for something like a couple of hundred characters)

Same issue with several other torrent sites...

lazypirate.net I can't get through at all - same issue

http://extratorrent.cc/ - no problem with pages or .torrents

http://isohunt.to/ - again no problem with pages or .torrents


Particular torrents I get the:"the page isn't redirecting properly" Firefox error message and it redirects to the URL: guidetest.a.id.opendns.com/?url=guidetest%2Ea%2Eid (blah blah forever) are:


http://thetorrent.org/A5F7D7D92D8CDE2576...9B.torrent : (getting the "the page isn't redirecting properly" Firefox error message and the very long http://guidetest.a.id.opendns.com/?url=guidetest%2E (goes on forver) URL

I can go on to list individual .torrents but I think you get the idea...

I've had this issue with more than a few torrents over the last couple of days and can't remember them all but further checking does seem like it's either particular torrent sites I can't access at all or on sites I can access but store their .torrent files on either torcache.net or thetorrent.org so there seems to be mixed issues, being able to see some pages but not get .torrent files from those sites if they're stored somewhere else.

On duckduckgo I get the "this site is untrusted" error.


Again, when I abandon the opendns DNS servers I've been using for years and go to "automatic" both of these issues disappear with no other changes. and I've done that several times just to verify the problem and even confirmed that the opendns server addresses are correct, which they are the same ones I've used for years.

I've emailed opendns and described the issue and they are completely confused and tell me "it must be your settings"

Although this doesn't seem to be a Firefox or a Windows issue, I'm using FF 28.0 on win XP Pro SP3, legal OEM copy, Pentium D, 3.66 GHz, and 4 GB or Ram (3.65 GB of RAM recognized by XP, this is normal)

Again, this issue only happens with the opendns free DNS servers I've been using for years and vanishes completely when I choose the automatic DNS setting and has only been happening a few days.

I have screenshots of the errors and thought there was a way to post them here but I don't see that.

The error on torrent sites is "The page isn't redirecting properly. FF has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. (and goes on to say blah blah cookies blah blah that I've checked and rechecked)

The error on duckduckgo is "This Connection is Untrusted. You have asked Firefox to connect securely to duckduckgo.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure." blah blah (you probably know the rest). I expect that I could add an exception but again the problem doesn't happen when using automatic DNS server detection.

I have no problems on other sites that I see.

Should I manually delete these strings? I know it says that modifying the configuration could void the warranty, but I've already tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox twice now and still the values are there. What should I do?

Firefox uses way too much resources on windows. This includes memory and cpu. I have done extensive research online. This is not an issue of extensions or profile. It seems to be a matter of javascript. If you turn it off then things get better but too many sites rely on javascript.

What is needed is a fix not work arounds. Firefox needs to put a leash on javascript resource usage. It should run but only in the tab that is currently open and with easily adjustable limits. I don't want my machine to be handed over to some web site to run whatever they want on it. However I do want to be able to access legitimate features that require javascript. There are many sites who do not seem to respect the difference. Therefore it fall on the browser to decide it for them. Maybe we need a sort of built in noscript.

From now on have 4 months remaining on TMobile contract w/ 4 phones.

    girlfriend gets NO coverage (not even emergency only calls) on her college campus; phones work in our house about 8% of time. Plan was to sit tight till contract expired and switch to Verizon. But two phones now experiencing problems with keyboard and want to act sooner. Cancellation penalty is $400.
    Can I buy an unlocked phone, use it on TMobile for duration of contract, then bring it to Verizon? i choose this NO.1 S7 phone on www.234buy.com .someone talk about difference in technology between the two, but more current posts speculate that problem may no longer exist. HELP!

I guess since I can't disable the security warnings in Firefox 30, I mean Chromefox, yes that's exactly what it is now, I am going to can Firefox until they decide to get with the program! This message pops up with just about everything so no point in asking stupid questions back like what sites, or coming up with some dumb fix that must be enabled on every site in the world! Mozilla really dropped the ball lately and should be ashamed of them selves! Firefox used to be my favorite browser because they were different! Now I see no point in having it at all! May as well just use Google Chrome! I mean after all why use a cheap substitute when you can have the real thing? Mozilla has become a joke now! Lets see what type of dumb answers come up with this post! Bet they will be " You don't want to do that" " What sites are you having problems with" This is a clean computer with clean OS and fresh install of Chromefox! You know what they say, if it looks like a duck, sound like a duck and acts like a duck, then it must be a duck! :{
