Hello.

I'm having a problem with firefox and it is getting really annoying.

When i search for something on the top right search box, Firefox opens a website with my search already put into the site (For example ebay or amazon but it is irrelevant because i search something like "How to...") But i do not want to do this, It has never opened a site i want.

I have also disabled every search engine apart from google in the "Search" settings.

I have also refreshed firefox and reinstalled it multiple times.

Thanks

After adding a keyframe text marquee, all text on the page in view is fuzzy on page load but clears up after scrolling the marquee out of view & remains ok even returning the marquee back in view. I see the same thing on tables but again scrolling the page clears it up. Don't see this problem with chrome. Obviously the marquee is affecting Firefox's text rendering but is there a fix for this?

This is terrible. I have used Firefox and it predecessors ever since I started using a computer in 1994. Now I am now forced to use IE because I cannot solve my problem which started a couple of Firefox versions ago. I have tried the font thing the hardware acceleration, disabling the add-ons, everything. Pictures, text and buttons are missing. Videos don't work and just display a dead black screen. It's totally unusable. I have done several system restores and even tried Chrome which I hated. I want my Firefox back. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate and the problem is on BOTH my laptop and desktop. I have done virus and malware scans. Is it possible that Super AntiSpyWare or Malware Bytes could have done some harm or removed something from windows that helps FF to work? I have used these programs for years though and they mainly seem to just get rid of tracking cookies. Please help as I am at my wits end. I am attaching a screenshot of my Yahoo page both with Firefox and IE. Thanks

Hello,

Please reference this support thread on SoundCloud's tech support forums. The thread contains all pertinent information, including videos of the problem and console screenshots made by myself and others. https://www.soundcloudcommunity.com/soundcloud/topics/skipping-to-the-middle-of-a-track-causes-stuttering-and-glitchy-audio-chrome-firefox

In a nutshell, when you try to skip forward during streaming audio, there is a buffering/stuttering issue that prevents proper playback of the track. This problem is confirmed on SoundCloud and Traxsource, and other people in the support thread have mentioned Mixcloud and other streaming sites. In other words, this is not the fault of one particular streaming service or another.

The problem does not occur in Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, or Chrome. Well, to clarify, when the problem was posted on the SoundCloud support forums, Chrome was having the same issue. However, they did a version push a few days ago, which fixed it.

Here is my original post on SoundCloud support (minus erroneous information about Chrome), which has pertinent details. Note that we upgraded both Flash and Firefox recently, so although I mention previous versions in my original post, everyone involved has since updated their browsers and Flash.

As of now, the only fix for the issue is to roll back to Firefox 40.0.2. Thanks for any and all help =)

Matt

Original Message===========

Skipping to the middle of a track causes stuttering and glitchy audio (Firefox).

I am running Windows 10 Pro.

There seems to be a caching issue affecting playback - I started noticing this problem three or four days ago. Previously, I could skip through my stream at will, going straight to the middle of tracks or mixes to listen to a few seconds, and determine if I liked the track. Now, I cannot do that on Firefox 41.0.1. The problem is merely annoying on songs that are 3 or 4 minutes in length, as I must let them "cache" for perhaps ten seconds before skipping around. Unfortunately, the problem is a game-breaker on mixes that are, for example, 90 minutes long. If I skip to a point directly in the middle of the mix, nothing happens. The playback button alternates between the "Play" symbol, and the "Caching" symbol ("..."), and if audio does resume, it is glitchy and consists of different parts of the track being played back at once.

I've eliminated my internet connection as a source of the problem by loading up Edge. In Edge 20.10240.16384, the problem does not exist. I can scroll down to any 2-hour mix in my feed, click on the middle of it, and the audio starts right up. No caching, no stuttering or glitching.

I rolled back Flash to version 18 to see if it fixed the problem in Firefox, but it did not. The problem persisted, so I re-upgraded back to Flash 19.

Getting constant crashes, error signature: 41.0.0.5738 mod name: mozglue.dll

I have had this plug-in container problem for several months causing the browser to hang especially when I have several tabs open and crash when I use task manager to fix; for example on 8.26.15, the error signature was 40.0.3.5716; samd mod name: mozglue.dll

and last April 13, 2015, it was called plug-in container 37.0.1.5570, mod name (different this time) called: mozalloc.dll

Below is a possible fix I found but I'm scared to try to use it involving opening file browser ( what is that) and find program files (I know that is in C file) and replace anything named firefox to .old (is that dot old). then it says Now run the full installer. If all goes well, remove the OLD folders when you are done. what is the full installer; you have to re-install Firefox.

What about going back to a prior version of Firefox; how do I easily do that?

I have constantly updated carefully every add-on to latest version appropriate for my computer which is old, using windows xp professional. I'm also afraid to use tune-up, that I would lose all the add-ons, extensions not allowing the browser to work properly.

I think that Firefox updates are an overreach for older computers with windows xp that can better function on an older version of Firefox. I need an expert to help me; perhaps tomorrow.



Possible fix below I found - I didn't work for this guy:

mozglue.dll = Firefox = Mozilla Foundation

Download Firefox Full Version For All languages And Systems {web link} Save the file. Then;

Using your file browser, open the Programs Folder on your computer.

Windows: C:\Program Files C:\Program Files (x86) Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. Linux: Check your user manual.

• Linux: If you installed Firefox with the distro-based package manager, you should use the same way to uninstall it - see Install Firefox on Linux. If you downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder Firefox in your home directory.


Look for, and rename any Mozilla or Firefox folders by adding .old to them.

Now run the full installer. If all goes well, remove the OLD folders when you are done.

I am legally blind. It has become a never-ending struggle to get Firefox to display colors properly. I use the high contrast black theme. and Firefox is configured to display white text on a black background. Recently I needed to tweak the colors for unvisited links. I couldn't because the palette colors were all black. I found a fix here to toggle the state of (I think) browwser.treference.inconfig. That gave me the old options screen back and it worked. Now I can't go back because the addons screen and about:config display white text on a white background.
