Frequent, repeatable crashes when navigating to most websites. Some sites will work fine for months and then suddenly start causing the crash. (This problem has been going on for 6+ months - originally I just quit visiting a few of the sites, but now it's most any site I visit.)

Specifically, going to usps.com, frysfood.com, or even the support.mozilla.org site causes immediate crashes (well, a 2 second hang, and then crash, but no loading is completed) of the browser. Visiting some sites like zerohedge.com, which started causing them today, the page will load somewhat before crashing.

I tried posting about this on the MozillaZine forums but was not able to resolve the issue. I think I've tried everything - disabling all my addons/ plugins (the 'never activate' and then rebooting). Disabling hardware acceleration. Uninstalling, deleting folder, reinstalling. Creating a new profile. Refreshing firefox. Disabling Flash hardware acceleration, removing old versions of Flash and Java. My drivers are all up to date, and have been repeatedly updated as i went through this process. I've been repeatedly scanning for malware and viruses, and none are ever detected by Malwarebytes. I've tried Firefox safe mode, still crashes. (I even tried Windows Safe Mode with Networking - that actually let me browse normally, but I can barely use the computer in safe mode.)

One of my most recent CrashIDs - https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/e5bc09ce-c44d-49d0-8b25-7521f2151104 . I just really don't know what to do, at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I couldn't do the 'automatically add' because I have to submit this in Chrome. Even just sitting at the 'restore previous session' page now causes crashes.

The lateste 42.0 upgrade has removed to fix I applied (Adjusting the preference 'browser.preferences.inContent') to continue allowing the Options to appear in a pop-up window rather than in the flat browser window. This is really annoying and awkward to use, the pop-up window was a lot easier to use and have floating 'above' the browser window.

Adjusting the preference 'browser.preferences.inContent' no longer seems to work. Please tell me if there is some way to fix this as i am in and out of options a fair bit and it really is a pain to use now.

Thanks.

When I updated to version 42 something happened during the upgrade. The activity icon keeps circling and my staus-4-ever add-on bar remains on and wont go away. When I try to check for updates in options it does not show the update to version 42 but when I go into help about Firefox shows I have version 42. I tried restarting my computer and it still shows the download icon circling etc. T the shut down the computer and powered it back up with the same results. I refreshed Firefox and that didn't help either. any suggestions?

Have just upgraded to Firefox 42.0 and background color setting does not work anymore - a blank window is forever white.

I've just upgraded to Firefox 42.0 and, unlike previous versions, the background color setting in "Content" does not work anymore. On the setting page the "Background color" indicator does change to the color I select (not the white one) from the color theme choices, but whenever I open a blank window the background color is always white. Then, when I go back to the setting page to check, that indicator still shows the color I have chosen. And whether I tick the "Use the system color" box or not tick it, the result remains the same -- the background color of a blank window is always white.

This is a problem I have never encountered before. I would like to find out why.

Thank you for any help.

For the longest time my address bar's upside down triangle button(I am assuming it is called the location bar history or something) always showed my most visited websites in a large box with all of my sites. Now it still does the same thing but the window its shorter and now has a scroll bar on it, is there a way to revert or change this option back to the way I had it?

I've had this problem several versions ago, and don't recall that it was adequately addressed.

Think of it this way... FF thinks the Windows taskbar is auto-hiding, and extends its windows to the bottom as a result.

Maxing the window helps, but only for that session. It'll happen again when the same site is opened later.

One site it's known to occur consistently is weismarkets.com, a chain of food-markets in the Northeast USA.

Now what? Just manually resize the window at the bottom, then do a Ctrl-dblclick on the last open FF?
