These are all web pages I visit regularly and usually they load quickly. Just now I tried to start a new post on my blog and it was being slow, so I opened a new tab to play a game while waiting for Blogger to get its act together. Same thing happens here. The little loading Icon starts spinning, but nothing happens. Tried a couple more tabs and a couple more games with the same result. Finally tried YouTube and it popped up instantly. Went back to the first game tab, clicked x to stop loading, and then selected the same game again. This time it popped up right away.

Just read the release notes. Firefox has no known issues with memory leak or Flash not working correctly? I spent over 2 hours running all wonderful suggestions under the running slow label, which blamed it on users, to find my system was fine... twice in last 5 days. No mention of how flash quits randomly (works fine on the other browsers at same sites). I just wish I could figure out what I am doing wrong with secure sites randomly being blocked on firefox when the others do not have that issue and all the addresses are https. My fault again. I must be doing something wrong on a desktop that only affects firefox randomly... Shame on me.

Figured I would let you know that firefox has no issues... all my fault.

How to Block Elements using Ublock Origin?

A lot of sites hit me with Javascript-based animation, while requiring Javascript to work. I have sensory processing issues, so animation and flashing is painful, and can trigger my migraines; outside it can also be disorienting and dangerous.

I have Ublock Origin, but can't find out how to block elements with it.

Obviously if I'm trying to block an element, I've *already* been hit by it. But it would sometimes help to be able to freeze it. And *then* I would be able to consider further steps. If I can't freeze an animated element, I have to get away from it. If I try to scroll away from it, a highlighted area shifts left as I scroll down. If I mouse over the text box, it flashes.

I tried AdBlockPlus but deactivated it because it broke copy/paste.

I use a website that has drop down boxes that are used to make selections. I have been using this website for years with no issues. Several months ago the drop down boxes stopped being "recognized" as selections and will be 'reset' when the 'enter' button is pushed - thus negating the selections. I have tried everything I can think of to get this working with no luck. I can use the website in Internet Explorer but only just within the last week. It appears that something called SSV Helper and SSV 2 Helper have been installed recently in IE which, presumably, is what allowed the website to work as normal. I would try to install these plugins in Firefox but I'm not sure how to do that or if I even need to.

I have tried disabling Hardware Acceleration, restarting in safe mode and trying, as well tried refreshing Firefox all with no luck. Any help on how to remedy this situation in Firefox would be helpful as I do not intend on using IE.

Hello. Some time ago I installed a program on my PC and either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox started having problems when trying to access some websites (eg: I go to https://www.google.pt and all is good, but if I remove the "s" from https it don't work; Also I am here posting using Mozilla Firefox because this websits is https). I tried a fix I found on youtube, that was changing the chrome.exe name to something like chrome1.exe, worked, but only for a few days. Tried to reinstall Google Chrome and nothing. Later I installed Google Chrome 64 bits and since then I am not having problems with Chrome, but Firefox is still with problem. Microsoft Edge (I've Windows 10) works perfectly. Now talking a bit more about the problem. Trying to access http://www.tecmundo.com.br/ , http://www.google.pt/ , http://agar.io/ , and lots of other webpages, the uploaded message shows (in portuguese, and I dont know how to change language to english quickly). I think it is maybe some adware or so that I installed with that program that is causing the problem, as it's not affecting Edge, didn't affected Chrome when I changed the exe file name and don't affect 64bit Chrome. What would I do? I tried many fixes that I found in this site and nothing is working, so I thank you for help to fix it. Thanks.

My Firefox (48esr) has started losing login status--especially for one site I visit frequently--when I close it and later restart. It did not formerly do this...logins were persistent if so set.

I did a bit back install a cookie manager extension that I did not like, and uninstalled it. I suspect it may have changed something in settings and not reverted them when I uninstalled...maybe.

Pic shows current cookie settings.

What do I need to change so login cookies are retained if set to on the site login page?

I know media.autoplay.enabled, but if i change it to false, autoplay is disabled for all sites. That's what i don't want. There are few sites where i accept autoplay of html5 videos. We can enable notification for flash contents and give perpetual or temporary "blessing" to websites to display flash. Is there any addon which can show such notification for html5 videos?

When are we going to get FF 45.0.2 ? 45.0.1 sucks. The Menu icon does not work. IE Tab freezes the Reload function. The URL drop down uses 2 line options with an icon and with what looks like watermarks behind the options, rather than the previous single line options. . Worst FF in years.

The error message i get is;

There was a problem including the file leaf_signature.png in the message. Would you like to continue sending the message without this file?

This has only just started to happen. They were loading up until a few days ago.

I have checked the route to the server and they are all in the correct location, and it is frustrating not to find the problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

I got a new phone that I wanted to sync to my account, but I could not remember my password. I tried the wrong one too many times and I am now locked out of my sync account on every device. I tried to set up a new sync account with a different email, but it tells me that my "limit is exceeded" when I do that, too. How can I create a new account? I don't mind doing that, because then I can sync it across my devices, but it is refusing to let me. I rebooted my computer, too, to see if that would help.

Hello. I'm having issues on Firefox for couple months. My issue is lags with scrolling: when i scroll down there is random lag appear like CPU spike and then I get scroll with stuttering. This doesn't appear always. This is randomly, but happens quite often to annoy me enough and almost complete destroyed all my nerves. I even started feeling that lags are my imagination.

What I have tried so far: 1) Resetting Firefox - didn't helped 2) Safe mode - didn't helped 3) Disable HW Acceleration - no difference, but I think its happen less often (but that also can be my imagination) 4) Enable / Disable Smooth Scrolling - no difference (normally I work without smooth scrolling) 5) I even tried complete uninstall Firefox with all subfolder and stuff and installed again - no difference 6) Tried Firefox 43 and 45 - no difference

With addons or without it doesn't matter. Lags appear even on freshly installing firefox so I'm kinda lost. Nobody I've asked doesn't have this issue so I really don't know what to thing. Google won't show any results for similar issue, so I think I might be the one...

I have Windows 7 SP1 64x with all updates and Logitech G100S mouse if its matter. Please ask for any additional details if you need.
