Firefox safe mode does not solve the issue. Disabled and also uninstalled antivirus and firewall and did not help. Disabled all startup items except the ones known not to cause the problem. Other browsers such as Chrome has no problems. Mozilla Thunderbird also will not connect.

I have read and applied all the fixes from previous responses to this problem and nothing works. Scrolling through Facebook is a nightmare with the page re-loading every 10 seconds, and creating a visual disturbance on screen. Please advise a permanent fix. Thanks

Then a whole bunch of repeated: http://criticalupdateserror889.com/3C2tK/0123456

I ran a Norton full scan and it found nothing. I'm now running Malwarebytes.

Any clue what got corrupted in FF to allow this to happen? Windows 10, Firefox 53.0.3

I want to share internet connection from notebook to my mobile phone (Keon) with micro usb cord (because I don't have wifi). I found in Firefox OS (version: Boot2Gecko 1.1.1.0-prerelease) Settings only the possibility to share internet from mobile phone to PC. I use a Debian based OS: Knoppix. I tried to accomplish this with Networking Manager and I did a new wired connection via my phone with "Shared to other computers" IPv4 Settings and with FE:...:02 (usb0) MAC address. But on my phone there is not internet although the connecton between my notebook and phone is estableshed.

I'm not sure exactly where this question should go, so apologies if I picked the wrong category. As far as I can tell, it fits into 'other problems': So I was getting an 'unresponsive script on page, do you want to stop it' dialogue for a Facebook page I frequent. Got sick of telling FF to stop the script every time, so I checked the 'do not ask again' box, hoping it would automatically just stop the script whenever it became a problem. Well, it's working a little too well. Now the page loads zero content. I'm just wondering how to 'undo' checking that box. Is there maybe a line in about:config I can look for, some setting I can adjust, to reset the 'do not ask again' option on 'stop unresponsive script' dialogues? Thanks in advance for any help!

I have a clean basic install of Windows 7 64 bit Pro. It is completely up to date. New install of Firefox 49.

When going to Netflix I get the message

"Firefox is installing components needed to play audio or video..."

but never completes. If I try to run a netflix video my pc crashes, won't reboot until I do a power off.

The desired videos play on Netflix in IE fine.

I have NO antivirus running, FF is set to auto update.

Any ideas ?

I run Ubuntu 10.10 LTSP server/client network and DO NOT want to upgrade Ubuntu... too much trouble, nobody can guarantee it will not hammer my LTSP install and besides, Unity is awful. I need newer Firefox due to some frequently used web pages, so I need an install procedure that will not hammer anything. It's a mission critical user environment. If anybody has positive experience with Firefox upgrade in similar environment please advise.

When firefox asked if I wanted to update to the newest version, I answered NO! I had already discovered on my other computer that if I allowed the update, I would lose my ability to restore the previous session, so I wanted to save the tabs so I could reload them. I also lost all of the saved passwords on my other computer and didn't want the same thing to happen on my work computer. But despite answering NO. Firefox updated anyway, and I have lost days of work. How do I get it back? Jack

In C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles there is one profile (qanl58lx.default) and my extensions is in the profile folder, but in Firefox options/extensions there are none. This has been going on for some time, but suddently 2 days ago a window for every extension showed up and asked for updating, which was done, and now extensions were shown inOptions/extensoins. But today they are all gone again. I have scanned for malware and there are none.

a few days ago my firefox started acting weird. after random time, usually about 30 - 100 minutes after using it, it would crash. in fact, it doesnt "crash", but actually just stops loading pages. when i then close it, the firefox process keeps going in the background. and nothing i do, not even terminating it will kill it completely. it just stays.

on this website it says you can try deleting the profile.ini file. so i did that, and it does infact kill the process and let me start firefox again. BUT! this time, it instantly crashes again. on the first page i try to load it dies and doesnt load it, and when i then check the task manager, there is TWO firefox processes (the first one reappears, out of nowhere it seems).

i also tried reinstalling it COMPLETELY (deleting every firefox folder i could find on this pc) and am up to date with the versions. i did the same to java and adobe, just in case. doesnt fix.

there are of course many other things to try on this website, and i think by now i tried all of them. they do work for the moment. they will untangle firefox and let me start it once more, but with not much success as it will create another process and crash right again.

i've also tried safe mode with network, and it actually works there. interestingly, if i then restart the pc again, it will work just one more time without a crash - well, until i shut down the pc and start it a second time, where the problem will reappear.

yesterday the same thing happened to skype! when i started it there then were two skype icons in the task bar, one of them being completely dead (you couldnt even click on it, and right clicking it would open a small, empty box) and the other one being the actual skype, but just not working because no matter how hard you tried, you couldnt log in. however, this was fixed by disabling uPnP in the skype menu. could it have something to do with uPnP? does firefox use it too?

im currently using google chrome while firefox isnt working, and i would love to return to firefox soon. please help! im all out of ideas.

Hello,

I am running the newest update for firefox (Version 38.0.1) on Mac OS Version 10.6.8. When I open a new window in firefox, the close, maximize, and minimize buttons are located in the top left corner, as usual. However, if I enter fullscreen mode on a video, and then exit, the buttons are not there. They are not simply invisible - clicking in their usual location has no effect.

Thanks, ReOsIr
