Hi There

Hotmail have this week updated their website, since then on Firefox I can't seem to open, delete, compose or do anything with my emails. All I can do is get into the inbox and that's it. I have been on Safari and seem to access all my emails as normal. Is there anything I can do to solve this problem??

I have Windows Vista w/service pack 2/Windows Media Player 11/Adobe Flash Player PlugIn etc all updated. When trying to play Roadrunner video my Internet connection freezes up: also when browsing safe web sites etc. Also, cannot play Roadrunner Radio in Firefox, only works on Internet Explorer. Time Warner Cable cannot solve this issue. Please tell me what I can do. i really prefer Mozilla Firefos for my Roadrunner service overall, but need to work out these issues.

I upgraded last week to Firefox 3.6.7 and found it prone to massive hang/unresponsive issues. I updated all my plug-ins; still happened. I tested with disabling plug-ins, and it only happened with Flash. This morning I upgraded to 3.6.8, hoping it would fix the problem, but it's still tripping into hang.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== various sites or windows were active or attempting to be opened. It's happened when I've opened the Add-Ons window, but my usual test has been gmail. It goes into limbo there when I try to delete a message, load another page of inbox, or sometimes load a message.

I'm having problems with just some websites. They begin to load normally but never complete. So I can often see all or part of the page, but can't interact - e.g. I can get into an e-mail program (e.g. Yahoo) and maybe open an e-mail, but I'm unable to reply to it. Or only part of the page loads and then hangs. Or sometimes none of the page loads it just hangs for a half hour showing a white screen. Other sites load fully and normally.

This has happened with Yahoo Mail, Ebay, Hotmail and some other sites.

When I open a new tab it opens a Bing search window instead of a blank page like it used to. When FF starts it opens a blank page like it should, but if I click on the + to the right of the current tab is when the Bing tabs open. It's just a Bing search window not the Bing homepage. If needed I can submit a screenshot of the new page. I use 2 addons affecting tabs. Multiple Tab Handler, and Colorful Tabs. I think SlimBrowser is an IE based browser. I use Win pro 64 bi on a HP laptop and FF 3.6.8 I've never had this problem all the years I used FF until now Any Ideas? Thanks Floyd

When I do a google search, I get a bunch of results. However, when I click on a link, it goes to a different webpage - not the one shown on the search page. Sometimes it comes up at scour.com.

I looked up scour.com on Wikipedia, which states that there is a "redirect virus" that is infecting my computer. It cited "Mozilla Support." So, I am asking the Mozilla Forum - How do I get rid of the virus? McAfee is not finding and removing it, and neither is Malware Bytes anti-malware software. Any suggestions?

I've started getting the message below any time I try to use add-ons or plug-ins such as Google toolbar and Yoono.

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete. Script: file:///C:/Program%20Files/Mozilla%20Firefox/components/nsExtensionManager.js:623

Neither the "cancel" nor the "stop script" button will make the warning box go away. Nothing but a reboot will. And any time I try to go to Tools-Add-ins, or use any Add-ins, the box comes back and I'm locked up again.

Rebooting does not solve the problem, and oddly, reinstalling Firefox does not solve the problem. I also opened Firefox in SAFE mode, and I still get the exact same problem.

Upgraded to latest 3.6.8 Firefox version and noting it is still having issues loading heavy flash websites. Takes 5 to 6 times longer to load a webpage if there is Flash on it. I do have the latest version of Flash installed according to Adobe's website so that's not the culprit. Will be uninstalling this latest version and rolling back to the copy of 3.6.3 version I kept which worked great with all flash websites. Waiting for the problem to get fixed before I update again...hoping they can fix this. I noticed this problem starting back with version 3.6.6 and still hasn't been fixed with 3.6.8...

I am having issues with headers and other text on many sites, including popular sites such as Tumblr and Twitter. It has been noted that this is an issue with the Helvetica font and you must delete the font for Firefox to work properly.

This problem does not occur with ANY other browser except Firefox, and browsers are supposed to know to substitute fonts. This is an ongoing problem I have simply dealt with for a year at least until it started causing more and more problems with new sites I use. I'm a graphic designer. If I am forced to choose between a very popular font for my work or a malfunctioning browser with support that would rather duct tape the problem than give any real customer support, then I will definitely choose my font and a different browser more willing to fix its shortcomings.

Please let me know if there is any progress being made on this matter.

After running firefox a long time, i close it. But it appeared that it was still opened using a large part of memory.

I kill firefox, then reopen it, and 4 windows open with blank pages on the website infomoneyservice.com.

It appears these pages were opened before, but in an hidden way, and they don't show in history.

It happened to me 5 or 6 times since 1 week before i wa able to reproduce some symptoms in a systematic way.

I think this problem is also related to some interceptions of google results.

Downloaded Firefox 4 beta3. I'm on Linux (Mint-ubuntu). I am assuming it detected my OS, because it offered no choices. (got a .tar.bz2 file)

I was expecting a self-installing file (like Chrome and Virtualbox provide) where one can just click on the file and it installs (just like in windoze). (you guys really should make it as easy as for chrome - not everyone on Linux is a geek).

I have no idea how to install this. If it's just to extract, I don't know the conventions on where to send it, and have it add the program to the Mint menu.

Could you please provide with detailed instructions or point me to the correct file for download? Thanks very much.
