Hello and thank you for your time. I've looked all around for an answer to my question but found nothing related to my problem. I've also had assistance in the past with this problem and temporarily fixed the problem but not for long at all. When i try and go to a specific website that I've been to before and have seen the captcha box appear, there's nothing there or it says recaptcha status in black bold letters. Previously i got an recommendation to clear cache and cookies of the website, update java and turn the browser into safe mode and restart which temporarily worked until i closed the browser and then the problem persisted even after doing it all over again? Please help!?

I was using Firefox 52.0.2esr and it was working fine. I got a Microsoft Update and after that it would not open after being launched. I am using Chrome browser and have troubleshooted renaming profiles which did not work. I have uninstalled, rebooted, and reinstalled ver 49.0.1 and I still have the problem. I have run my Virus, Malware, and Spyware and it is clean. Firefox shows in Task Manager as running but the window never opens. I have killed the process subsequently to doing everything I have said above. Please help. I do not like using Chrome but it's the only other internet browser that is working on my XP PC.

I admittedly have way too many tabs in one session, but haven't had too many problems with concerning losing any tabs or being unable to restore my previous session. However, Firefox froze while I was browsing and I restarted my computer and opened up Firefox and was not able to restore my previous tabs. Usually if I restart my computer without exiting Firefox, the option always is available when I reboot Firefox. I am not sure why this is suddenly not an option, but I am desperate to get these tabs back, or even just a list of what each one was instead of the actual tabs. I read about ways to do this, but some seem dated and I did not understand how to do any of them. I am not sure how to find sessionstore.bak/js, which seems to be the most recommended way of fixing this issue. I currently have Windows 10 with the latest version of Firefox as of this posting. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I find that using Firefox 49 and 49.0.1 versions do not handle aol.com well. The browsing is extremely slow and choppy. This is on both of my MacBook Pros, an early 2011 17" and mid 2012 13" running macOS Sierra, and even on Firefox for Android on my both of my Nexus 6's running Nougat. I can browse aol.com in both Safari and Opera with no problem on my Macs and aol.com runs better on Naked Browser Pro than mobile Firefox.

I`m reading shown below, to solve this, NPSWF32DLL should be deleted in Firefox program files folder by looking for a plugins folder, but i cant find "Firefox program files folder". It also says to delete corresponding flash player.xpt, Could you help please?. My computer is Windows 10-Firefox 49.0.2

""Go into the Firefox program files folder and look for a plugins folder. If you find a folder by that name, open it and see if there is a NPSWF32.DLL file in there. If so, delete that file and delete the corresponding flashplayer.xpt file from that folder. Actually, you can delete that folder altogether - Firefox hasn't had that folder for a number of years now, but will use whatever files might be in there from years ago.""

Actually just prior to this update, i click on wisn http://www.wisn.com/weather and it will not give error message but doesn't play the weather update morning video. I have used it forever, but suddenly nothing, no message. I tried it in safe mode, I tried it turning off adblockerplus, I tried to figure out if anything was blocking or stopping, my java is enabled, and yet, nothing. please help me discern what steps to do. i also cleared cache/history. it doesn't work in safe mode etc... so its not one of my add ons. I hadn't put any new ones on in long while, anyhow, i really really like to watch morning short video of weather instead of turning on tv, but now I can't . I would love to have some problem solving steps if anyone can provide them. I tried to "automatically add" troubleshooting information at the bottom of this page to submit it, but it takes me to "not found" so is that my computer or your website issue?

Twitter web player embed doesn't work on certain site

Just a forewarning, I'm kindly asking to not have any political arguments or time-wasting here. On this page http://www.infowars.com/pathetic-hardly-anyone-shows-up-to-tim-kaine-florida-rally, there are multiple embedded HTML5 videos from Twitter. I am able to view the videos fine other ways, but not as they are embedded on that specific URL for me. I already tried safe mode, and the videos on that page would still not display. What I get instead is in the attached screenshot. Clicking the play or any other buttons in that blank white box does nothing.

Unfortunately, the videos embedded in the page play as intended on Google Chrome, and they even work on my Firefox only IF I go to the respective pages on twitter.com and play them.

I tried comparing the inspect element tool between both Chrome and Firefox, and I can only tell that Chrome has a LOT more coding for that 'player container' as it's called.

I do use both AdBlock Plus and NoScript, and disabling both (along with all other add-ons) surprisingly didn't fix the issue.

I'm running FF 49.0.2.

Thank you to anyone who might have the same issue or be able to help.


Once again, this is not an error with the way the specific site or page is encoded, because the page's player works on Google Chrome. Just not Firefox.

Also, I have noticed this same issue with other videos from Twitter on the same site (infowars.com) on my Firefox.

Mozilla vs Wordpress

I am having a problem with the view in Mozilla when attempting to access my blog on Wordpress.

I posted in the Wordpress forum- https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/desktop-apbrowser-using-browser-returns-locked-pages?replies=1#post-2785273 - before I realized the issues is with Mozilla and not my other browsers e.g. IE & Chrome.

I will have to link back to this forum because I am not able to upload a screenshot in the WP forum. I apologize for any confusion. In fact, if you follow the link to the WP form I go into detail.

In light of repeating myself, I realize the screenshot shows my add-ons, but I have attempted to view the pages in safe mode, thus disabling my add-ons. I have also cleared my cache (I do that regularly) and dumped whatever cookies I had and set the browser to accept "sll" cookies, I had been only accepting cookies from sites I visited merely to avoid tracking cookies.

As I said, I go into more depth on the WP forum, mostly because I suspected WP. I was making a post yesterday in one tab and updating one in another and strangely, I had a normal view in the new post page and this blank view in the tab I of the post I was trying to update. At the time, I didn't give it a lot of thought. I simply thought it was a glitch. However, today every link from the front page leads to a blank page like the one in my screenshot, with the highlight in the address bar.

Mind you, if you read my post in the WP forum, they did release an update for their desktop application yesterday/today, and so I still wanted to believe the fault was with them, and it still may be and yet the pages view find in IE.

????????

I'm truly stumped.

I would hate to have to do a clean reinsall of Firefox entirely because I am not sure if it is all Mozilla except that I only get the blank view in Mozilla and not IE.

I am going to link my WP forum Post back to this one so, hoefully, someone can see the screenshot.

As always, any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Text Font and Spacing in Drop Down Menu is Wierd

Hi all,

So about a week and a half ago I formatted my PC as it was running slowly and just generally not performing well. I want to say I had no issues with Firefox before that and I never really changed any settings in Firefox. Maybe a couple about browsing/data storage, but that's it. The only Addons I had ever installed were AdBlock Plus, uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger and I forget the name of it, but it was a Flash Player blocking addon. Still no issues though.

Anyway, after formatting I reinstalled everything, Firefox being first, and things were going along nicely. However, a few days passed and I noticed that the text in all of my drop down menus looked off. I had a closer look and noticed the font was different and the spacing was weird. Not only that, but I was seeing fewer items in longer drop down lists. At the time of writing this, my uploaded image still hasn't successfully loaded in, so here's a link to what I mean. http://i.imgur.com/qwodW7Z.png (The correct look of the text is on the left, while the odd one is on the right.)

I don't know what caused this. I didn't change any settings at all after reinstalling Firefox. I asked a friend who uses it, and I even went to the Firefox Subreddit for some help but nothing worked. I checked my display settings and text was at 100%, I checked internet options but the default text was set to Times New Roman, just as it is in Firefox itself - it's all default. I disabled hardware acceleration and that didn't work, I was told to try setting "gfx.content.azure.enabled" to 0 (which I assume is "false"), but I couldn't see that in my about:config page, so I added it as boolean. I was then told to add it and try it at 0 and at 1, but if nothing works leave it at 1 (which I assume is "true"). I tried all of that but still nothing. It has been like this for several days and the problem is still persisting.

Here's the weird part though. I've refreshed Firefox in the Troubleshooting Information section, and after doing that the text goes back to normal (how it looks on the left side of the picture), BUT when I close and open Firefox the next time, the text has gone weird in drop down menus again. I removed and reinstalled Firefox but it still persisted. I removed all files and folders of Firefox/Mozilla from my machine, reinstalled and the text went back to normal... only for it to go weird after I closed and reopened Firefox.

I have no idea what the problem is. I've even tried changing the font in Firefox but it did nothing! I've tried Internet Explorer, Edge, and even Chrome to see if the problem persists there but it doesn't. I open it, try the same website across all browsers and I see the text looking fine. I close and reopen all of them and the text looks the exact same. Why is it that Firefox decides to change that text? Is this part of a new update? Did I just not have the latest version of Firefox before my format? If this IS part of an update, why does the text look one way after I refresh, but a different way when I open Firefox any time afterwards?

This isn't a huge issue, but seeing the text looking totally wrong in my drop down menu multiple times a day slowly annoys me more and more each time. It's almost like I'm being taunted because I don't know how to fix it or what's causing it. I don't want to change browser just for peace of mind, I'd never know what was causing the problem if I do that! My machine and my graphics card drivers are all up to date. I don't want to have to format my PC again just for a slight chance it might fix the problem, especially when it's not guaranteed to fix the problem!

I use Windows 10 and I have the very latest version of Firefox, 49.0. Graphics card is a Radeon HD 5770 and I run a 64 bit OS. I don't know why this is a problem. I never had this problem before my format and I've never had any other problems with Firefox, so what gives? I can't find anyone else with this problem online at ALL. Am I just crazy, and this is all part of an update but for some reason the first time I refresh Firefox it doesn't load properly, or what?

Any help would be appreciated. I'm all out of ideas, I don't want to format and I don't really like any other browsers except Firefox. Yes, I'm sure I can try to live with it, but it annoys me every time I see it.

(Please tell me there's something in my troubleshooting information that solves this problem).

QUICK NOTE: The ONLY place that drop down menus look totally normal is the Firefox Options page itself.

Hi,

I'm not able to access https://pixabay.com/ as I get the message above (question bar) showing. Having checked out Q&A I tried deleting the cert8.db file then re-starting Mozilla, no joy. I am a bit reluctant to do a refresh as I'm unsure how it would affect my system? I am not that computer literate! I did do an SSL check & both their server & info bar url came back as A+.

Around the same time I now also can't access https://personofinterestdiscussion.com/ I did an SSL check & that came up with vulnerabiities. (I made a note of some if needed.) Their overall safety rating is F - grade capped to C . I haven't made any changes to my laptop lately (Windows 7) & haven't had problems accessing either site until a couple of days ago & I just don't know what to do to get back onto both. I have anti virus, anti spyware, anti malware etc installed with no problems, also Mozilla's website protection. I scan my laptop daily. This has came on so suddenly & I really want to get back onto both sites, so any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks!  :)

Updated to Firefox 49.0.2 I go to facebook, and try loading a java game called Bingo Drive. It takes 3 to 5 mins to load the game. Tried running in safe mode.. Same results.. Tried refreshing, it said it had a problem with one of my tabs or something like that..

I usually run it with Adblocker plus and Video downloader helper..

If I go to facebook and load this game in MS Explorer 11, the game loads in 15 seconds.

No idea what is causing this problem of slowness.. It says all my add ons or what ever are up to date.

Before you respond with your list of troubleshooting for this issue, I have tried them ALL! There is so much on your website and the internet about this issue, the fixes are well known and well tried. Everytime I try to watch a live youtube streaming, plugin crashes and Firefox freezes and I need to restart my pc! I would thing the brilliant folks at Firefox would hve come up with a REAL fix for this by now. Apparently not.

so, I have disabled Shockwave, but it seems none of the other plugins suggested for this will work. The error message is always, "your browser does not recognize any of the video formats available", then suggests HTML5 . I tried all of those, and they won't work. Last time I sent you a question about this, I think it got deleted (on purpose?) because I couldn't find it. Please don't do so again. Or I will have to take further action.

Hello Everyone.

I had a list of bookmarks displayed under 'Bookmark Toolbars.' I clicked on the 'Bookmark' icon, saved it in the Bookmark Toolbar, and it was available in 'list' form.

However, I added another bookmark to the 'list' and somehow every bookmark was displayed as tabs under the URL.

I deleted all of the tabs, not realizing that would delete the Bookmark Toolbar list as well.

How was a tab added and how do I turn that setting off?

I just want to add Bookmark Toolbar in drop-down list format.
