Every now and then, when I'm on Firefox it will not respond then the window will fill white and at the top it will say "Mozilla Firefox (Not Responding)".

It responds after about 10-15 seconds but this keeps happening every 2-3 Minutes and is making Firefox unusable to watch videos on Youtube and read other things as when it starts responding it take me back to the top of the page.

I cannot pinpoint which websites this is on but it normally (But not always) happens when I have more than one tab open (Usually on Youtube + SammyServers.com)

My Firebox browser had all of it's menu bars, address bars, and toolbars closed (to make room for a web screen on a Netbook). I am now left with the Tab area... and the title bar... but *nothing* else.

While in this state, I can't find any area of the interface where I can right click to "recheck" any of my bars... menu, address, or toolbars.

Is there a Windows registry setting that could get me started? Or perhaps a key click combination to enable any of those functions?

Right now I'm stuck with no ability to navigate to another site, or do anything other than open more tabs.  :-)

Help! Thank you!

Apparently this has been an issue in the past (2007, I think). Recently after updating my Firefox browser to ver. 3.6.9, I am not able to reply to emails I receive in my Godaddy webmail. Are there updates available to fix this issue? If so, how do I obtain them? I love my Firefox, but I also love my Godaddy! Having to use Safari for webmail now. Not sure if I should or even need to post URL for this issue. Please advise.

Thanks, Susan

When I try to print a multi page URL, it only prints the first page and identifies it as Page 1 of 1, instead of Page 1 of x. But, IE-8 prints ALL x pages of the same URL perfectly. I've noticed this exact same FF problem with certain other URL's.

This problem is on the current version 14, and dates back to version 9 or before! Any suggestions?

Has anyone filed a Bugzilla Report? Please see Replies below, and visit:http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=511130&start=15 for more information.

Is there any way to do a manual session restore if Firefox doesn't open your previous session - and doesn't give you that option?

I've got Firefox configured correctly and it always opens my last session. However, sometimes when the computer crashes and a second Firefox window is open (this time it was either a pop-up window or the Firefox update window), Firefox only recognizes that window as the "last session," and it loses the most recent multi-tab session. (Hmm, maybe what I need is "re-open recent sessionS" or "last multi-tab session" ?!)

Anyway ... is there any way I can retrieve yesterday's open tabs without picking through my history and finding them one-by-one?

I am using Firefox 3.6.9 so is my husband. When I go to many sites, I get this error message AFTER it displays the page for about 10 seconds. My husband can go to the same site and it stays up. We have checked my setting against his, cleared the cache and history repeatedly and mine still does it. I am using win7 64 bit and Firefox3.6.9. Please help me get this issue resolved or I will have to go back to using IE which I totally dislike, but I can view the same web pages and it does not go off. Thanks, JoAnna

Hi. I'm trying to get Firefox to display characters from ancient scripts. I have installed all the necessary fonts, and changed the encoding to Unicode. When I try to view Phoenician and Imperial Aramaic characters (other scripts too), I just get boxes with numbers (10900 and so forth). I have a laptop that is able to display these characters but I need to be able to see them on my current system.

I updated Firefox yesterday to 3.6.9. When I receive a URL link in an email within Outlook, I cannot open the link in Firefox. As I said in the question, when I click on the link, a Microsoft Office Outlook error message appears which states that a General failure has occurred in sending the command to the application (which is Firefox). I am using Office 2007 This did not occur prior to the upgrade of Firefox.
