I'm getting crash reports the length of a toilet roll. Can anyone pin this down ? Strong suspicion it's wretched flash again. I've downloaded/repaired Win 8.1 so many times, and checked the compatibility issues, and still can't get my beloved programs to function properly. How does one deal with Windows registry issues ?

I downloaded the addon manually because it wouldn't let me automatically. The addon is just to verify the iso image. tails.boum.org has always been the official website. Why does it say insecure connection -- untrusted - phishing attempt and why does it not let me add it as an exception ? Never had a problem before .

Per instructions for the router, I enter the address 192.168.1.1 in the address box. I have to enter my username and password. They are correct but are not not accepted. The name and password are right -- they work with Internet Explorer, though I do get a message about an unsecure connection.

What do I have to do to allow this with Firefox?

This is my last straw using Firefox unless this is remedied. . Open any webpage with Firefox and literally HUNDREDS of ports are connected out. One time I counted 278 ports were open (screen capture then counted). This slows my PC down to a crawl to the point of freezing up. Nothing in the browser will work until, usually about a minute later, ports start to close. I do not want to hear it is my PC, this problem did not happen in 10 or so previous versions of Firefox. This port opening problem was slowly growing over the last (about) 10 versions. EVERYTHING on my PC is up to sate, drivers, hardware, etc. and yada-yada. IT IS NOT my PC, it is Firefox software.

Hi there. I recently bought a new Windows 10 PC and immediately downloaded Firefox v44.0.2. I logged into Sync, and everything looks great except for ESPN.com. The top of the page where all of the scores are is clearly displaying incorrectly, but it looks fine on the Edge browser. I'm trying to upload screenshots to this post, but that's not working either?  :-( I tried going back and forth between No Style and Basic Page Style. That actually fixes it temporarily, but it just goes back to displaying it wrong. Could this be some issue with Sync going from Windows 7 to 10?

Thanks!

I am a bit OCD about text and images lining up on my website when I publish content (via Wordpress).

Yesterday, for no reason I can ascertain, all of the content on my website is displaying very slightly differently - so that the images no longer line up with the content.

This is only on my PC - everything is still fine when I look on my laptop. Also, most people who I have asked to check for me don't have the same problem as me. However one other person did.

It is also only an issue with Firefox - everything still looks ok on my PC on both Chrome and IE.

Have I done something stupid?

I am attaching an image as an example of how it now looks in Chrome for me (left), compared to Firefox (right).

I went through the trouble shooting steps of, checking firewall, deleting and re-adding Firefox to exception list. I've updated and did a full system scan with ESET Nod 32, I disabled add-ons, I uninstalled and reinstalled into a new folder I was able to use Firefox until I closed the browser and now when I restarted it, no web pages will load BUT I have no issues with other programs or browsers connecting and using the network and internet. Currently I am connected to my network and internet using a CISCO USB Wi-Fi stick. This issue just started last night after I upgraded to version 44.0

Using Windows 10, upgraded to 44.0.2. Now Firefox says it unexpectedly crashes when opening and gives me the option to start in safe mode or refresh. I tried refreshing but nothing changed. I tried to open in start mode, but only get a white screen and then it says "Not Responding" in parentheses on top bar of page. I have tried a clean uninstall per directions on Mozilla support. I also captured the crash ID per Mozilla support and that is below:

All of a sudden I can't download anything. I'm pretty much technically illiterate but I DO download images/documents frequently and have never had a problem. Until now. Now no matter what I try to download- or when I try to view my previous folder of downloads instead of seeing the image I get a page of random symbols and letters. I have no idea if I pushed something by mistake to make this happen??? Any help most appreciated!

I installed Networx on my W8.1 PC, in order to try to establish why my internet download/upload total useage had increased recently. Result: an excellent, continuous view of my download & upload traffic - and one puzzle:-

Why does Firefox 44.0.2 trigger a regular download pulse of 60KB/s lasting several seconds**, exactly once a minute? Over time, this adds up! It's unrelated to any webpage that I am looking at (or that is open in another tab). It stops when I close Firefox, and then resumes either when I open up again, or else spontaeously later. Having Firefox in its safe mode doesn’t prevent it.

Does anyone have a suggestion? Thank you.

    • to be exact, it’s a symmetrical tapered pulse: 6 sec at the bottom, 3 sec at the top

Following the instructions given for the download and install of firefox 45 I can run it from the terminal but that is it. I can not find the information needed to complete the install. Also even though it runs 45 from the terminal the flash player is outdated and I ran into the same issue with that install as well. I am running Zorin 10 ultimate 64 bit OS. I have ran into issues with Ubuntu commands not working for Zorin on two different versions. This one and 9 core 64.

We've been notified and will get working on a fix." with a big blue 'Home' button that takes me nowhere (see image attached).

First of all, thanks for volunteering your time. I really appreciate it.

My problem has to do with my inability to restore my bookmarks. To begin with, at some point recently, my bookmarks "disappeared". I initially thought that they were lost and gone forever - but subsequently found an encouraging note that Firefox saves the last fifteen backups - backups that are done automatically. With that information in hand, I went to the Mozilla article 'Restoring from backups". Per the instructions, I clicked on the Bookmarks button, selected "All Bookmarks" to open the Library window, clicked "Import and Backup" and then selected "Restore". A number of backups appeared in a list and I selected the one that I wanted to restore from. It is 40.7 kb in size and has 500 items. (Needless to say, when I saw that information, I breathed a major sigh of relief.) I highlighted that one and clicked "OK". According to the article : "Your bookmarks from the selected date should now be restored." Wrong! There has been no restoration. There has been no change in the bookmarks list . My question: What need I do - or what need I do differently - to restore the bookmarks? Thanks again.
