I have recently installed Firefox and uses Vuze to download torrents. Vuze does not want to download torrents now after the Firefox upgrade. The fire wall is blocking the torrent downloads. Following message appears: There appears to be another program process already listening on socket [127.0.0.1: 6880]. Loading of torrents via command line parameter will fail until this is fixed.

I just got the latest ZTE Open, with FFOS_V1.0.0B02 . There are several wifi SSIDs in my university operate like this: first connect to AP without authentication; visit any web page; get redirected to the web login page; after authentication, can communicate with other sites. It turns out none of them works. Firefox complains "The address isn't valid" when get redirected. My other devices work find with those SSIDs.

Also note that 802.1x is not supported yet.

Get wifi connection is the first thing to do. Then I can try update the system and install apps. It's frustrating to get stuck at the very beginning. Please advise what should I try...

Dear Sir or Madam

When I open the website https://settings.adobe.com/flashplayer/mobile/ to costumize the settings of flash player I get some weird symbols but nothing more.

I have tried disabling all addons I have but it didn't work also the theme I am using. Then I reinstalled the flash but still the issue kept continuing. Then I reinstalled the Firefox but still no solution.

I can send a ss related to this issue if needed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Yours sincerely.

Hi I'm having some issues currently with my Firefox v. 25.0.1. As soon as I start the browser up, it tries to load the restore session page from the previous crash. Pretty much before the page could fully load Firefox would crash.

I have tried to create a new profile and the new profile seems to work just fine but as soon as I try to copy the sessionstore files from the crashing profile to the new profile, the same thing would happen. From time to time I would be able to get the browser working but that's maybe once in 25 or so attempts where it actually loads up correctly for me to restore my past sessions.

Hello everyone, I was happily using Firefox untill few days ago. Since then Firefox takes about five minutes to start (you cant see in taskbar or Application in task manager, just in Processes in task manager). When it finaly opens the first window it is not responding and there just blank window). It does the same in safe mode. I tried to reinstall it several time, with deleting every Firefox related files on computer (following every relevant instruction from Support). I tried to backup my profile and start with new one after reinstall. Every time with same result: Firefox works perfectly after reinstall (even when I transfer files from old profile, every bookmark is right), but when I restart computer the problem is back.

I checked PC for malware and viruses by Avast, there should be now collision with other software since I did not install anything recently. I have cleaned registres, cache and cookies with CCleaner.

I am running 64-bit Windows 7 Lenovo E430, everything worked perfectly for half a year. Only problem I can relate to is a warning message about low free space on system drive, which occured at the same time problems with Firefox started (but it is now even true, I have 5 GB of free space on system drive).

I found other unresolved topics, one of them with same system configuration as mine. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/956861?esab=a&as=aaq https://support.mozilla.org/cs/questions/958824

Any suggestions before I desperately change to Firefox Portable?

Entering a simple "e" in the search/adress bar still suggests ebay.com, "r" suggests rambler.ru and so on, this is highly annoying seeing as I only want it to suggest things out of my history, not suggest new items.

Tried;

Clearing all data browser.urlbar.autoFill false browser.formfill.enable false signon.autofillForms false

Firefox latest (non beta), Android 4.2.2, HTC One X.

At loss what to do at this point, if I can't get it fixed I'm switching firefox for chrome in a heartbeat because I keep losing so much time typing in extra information or deleting auto-fills information.

Certain views only show up after a given date it. Current views (12/5/2013): Today Yesterday November ..etc

If I change my computer clock to be later in the month the views change. Current views (12/7/2013): Today Yesterday Last 7 days November ...etc

At the *very* least "This Month" should always be an option! I could not browse 3 days of history until changing my clock.
