I am running an older machine, but with a fresh install of Windows 7. Until the latest update, I had no issues with the versions of Firefox since my last OS install. Now when I am in the latest Firefox 23.0.1, I get occasional freezing that will lock the entire machine and need a hard restart. I am still diagnosing, but to date the only constant I know is Firefox. I have not experienced the same freezes using IE.

Occasionally I will think the freeze is happening when I lose both keyboard and mouse control during a Firefox session, but after 1 to 2 seconds, they both return. Typically though, it just freezes. Most times it occurs while I am away from the keyboard getting coffee or something. It is so transparent, the only thing that tells me the freeze occurred (other than loss of mouse and keyboard) is the system time still being several minutes ago.

I have seen the other forum message regarding Firefox 21 and Firefox 22, but I figured I ask in a new message regarding Firefox 23.

I have done the reset to Firefox as of last night. I reloaded Ghostery as my only Add-On, which was the only Add-On running during earlier versions of Firefox. Already this morning I have had the 1 to 2 second pause, but no freezing yet. (Now Troubleshooter has been added due to this message.)

I took the old drive out of the laptop and put it in a USB case so I now have my entire OLD hard drive as drive E ...but no applications will actually run of course.

Hi any one who can help me. I have 'websearchinc.net' on my computer I comes up as my default browser called "websearch' seems harmless but I'm not sure. I don't know how it got on my pc and I can't find it any where in any installed programs or software. I tried sending them email to explain how I can remove it but no reply from contact@websearchInc.com as they suggest is their support address.

So does anyone know how i might have got it, is it safe and how to remove it ? Thank you, Nick890

Running a version of Linux, the default application for PDF files is "Use Document Viewer (default)", which appears to be /usr/bin/evince. I'd much prefer to use /usr/bin/okular; how can I change the default. This question is NOT about how to change the function that is automatically applied when I access a link, in this case "Preview in Firefox", but rather to the default application that I can select when I download a file being viewed in Firefox's previewer.

I log on to by bank and firefox remembers my account #, but when the next screen pops up the bank does not recognize my computer. Each time after answering the correct security question ,I check the box to remember this as a personal computer but it never does. This only happens when I use Firefox, not other browsers. The other browsers remember the acct and that it is a personal computer.

With the release of Firefox 23.0.1, different options were changed and I had to go back in to change them. One small change was disabling the start of videos on Youtube, Dailymotion, etc. The plugins.click_to_play was set to true, and changing it back to true today, videos are still automatically playing on their respective website. Is there any alternative or adjustment in the options that will do the same as plugins.click_to_play? Prefer this option to work, but if there is something else out there, I'll consider it.

every page on every open tab refreshes every 30 seconds and each time it is saved in my cache. If I want to go back to a previous page, I have to click back once for every 30 seconds I was on the current page. Very annoying!! It just started doing this recently and I don't know why. I did reset the about:config to "0", but that didn't help.

Ever since a couple of weeks ago, I've been having trouble playing Flash videos on YouTube, etc. in Firefox. They often freeze on the first frame of the video while the audio still plays. Sometimes the video starts playing normally, but then freezes. I cleared the cache and I have the latest version of Flash. I don't have this problem in Chrome or Safari, just Firefox.
