Whenever I open Firefox, there are two firefox.exe running the background whenever I open the browser. Whenever I try to close the second one, it crashes all of the tabs that are on the browser, and whenever I reload the tabs, it pops up again.

I've scanned my computer multiple times with multiple anti-viruses, but there was no viruses to be found. I've also disabled the plugins that I thought were the issue, and refreshed Firefox, but it was still there. I restarted my computer, no luck in doing that. Uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox didn't even do the trick either.

The double processes sky-rockets my RAM and CPU, and it's starting to get annoying. Please help! I appreciate any cooperation!

I used to be able to go to a website, click on the drop down arrow and see all the options, but now when I click on it nothing drops down and I have to use my arrow keys to see what is there. I tried this on other browsers and the drop down menu works, just not on firefox. I am running Firefox 50.0.2. How do I fix this?

Thanks!

I have some add-ons installed which keep disappearing from the top toolbar where I want them (next to the search bar). They include Video Download Helper and Self-Destructing Cookies. I entered Customize, and these add-ons are not shown in the "Additional tools and features". They are definitely installed as they show in the Add-ons Manager, but they are not at the top bar -- I have the bottom Add-on Bar Restored, and several of my add-ons do show there, but not those. There is no drop-down arrow indicating that they are actually there but hidden. They are not there. I'm assuming there's some kind of conflict, but I don't know what it could be. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with what theme I am using at the time. Thank you. using: Windows 7, Firefox 50.0.2

How can I select a client certificate from a smartcard?

Hi,

I have a spr532 card reader with a test smartcard with Firefox 50.1.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 up to date. I want to use the client certificate from the device to log in on a website that I am developing.

I also have a test certificate that I generated and it is not on the card. I can log in with the test certificate that I have but not with the one on the card. The problem is that in the "User identification request" page I cannot see the certificate from the smartcard. I can see my generated certificate but not the one on the smartcard. Firefox asks me for the pins for the smartcard (I have two certs on the card and they both have PINs). Firefox sees my certs from the smartcard in about:preferences#advanced > View Certificates > Your Certificates column. I have both the certs on the smartcard and the one I generated in that table. But when I try to log in, Firefox only shows me my generated cert and not the one from the smartcard.

What can I do? How can I debug this? This is a dev environment. I can change any configs on the server so I can decrypt the TLS session and see what is going on between my server and the browser.

PS: I tried to send this message with 2 other email accounts but I do not get the confirmation email.

Thank you!

Hi all!

I began experiencing this problem a few days ago and not sure what's causing it:

In my Windows Task Manager, there are two firefox.exe that appear under Processes (under Applications, Firefox only appears once). I've used End Process to close each of the firefox.exe that appear and the result has been peculiar. Depending on which one I End, either the window closes entirely along with all the tabs or the tab that is currently open crashes and I get the message: "Bad news first: This tab has crashed."

I've scanned my computer with AVG for viruses and everything came back clean. I also scanned it with ESET for malware and nothing was found.


Any idea what I can do to resolve this? Any help would be appreciated.

Standard view in gmail worked until a few weeks ago. I cleared all the history (cache, cookies, etc.), turned off the computer, then restarted it, but I can still access gmail only in HTML. Standard view works in Internet Explorer and Opera. Strangely enough, I have two computers, and they BOTH have the standard view problem in Firefox. Can this be fixed (easily...for a non-tech person)? Thank you.

We need someone from Firefox programming team to give up the option to obliterate "Other Bookmarks" a.k.a. "Unsorted Bookmarks" to Kingdom Come, without any Add-On. We have been living with this utterly useless folder for months on end and now it is turning into years, time to trash this useless and idiotic folder for good. Please don't advise of any add-on, my Firefox and Windows can't handle one more add-on, we need a simple forward solution, like Delete and it is deleted or changing a setting in the about:config and it is done.

The HTML5 player controls will hide itself after a few seconds when a video starts to play either from clicking a YouTube video link or when the video is resumed from pause. However, the controls will remain visible as long as the video is paused. The controls are quite obstructive due to certain moments when I need to pause to see a certain thing in the video in a very short time-frame but got covered by the player controls and disappears when resume playback. So, how do I make the HTML5 player controls to also auto-hide a few seconds after the video is paused or instantly hides when the mouse is outside the player area?
