We are using Google Web Toolkit interface base application while using application we are facing crash several times. I have downgrade the Firefox from ver.8.0 to 6.0 and as in ver. 8.0 crashes were occurring very frequently (Every 10 Min. it use to crash with ver. 8.0 but now in ver. 6.0. it crashes twice to thrice a day) To resolve the problem I have followed several troubleshooting steps provided on Firefox Help as follows on different Pc. But the problem is still occurring.

1. I’ve tried three different Firefox ver. 5.0, 6.0 and 8.0

2. Started browser in to safe mode.

In the safe mode crashing frequency was low but it use to occur at least once in every one to two days.

3. Disabled “Use hardware acceleration when available”. Users have default themes from Firefox.

4. Manually removed all plugins.

5. Updated windows and display driver. 6. Uninstalled IPV6

Firefox 6.0 (release) has a memory leak.

Tested with 5 windows and 43 pages loaded and left overnight, it crashed after several hours. Able to fully repro this every time.

I left it for 10 mins after all pages loaded. I opened Task Manager and I can see the Memory (Private Working Set) increasing every few seconds.

I have 2 blogs with Blogger also known as blogspot.com and after I was forced to install Firefox 6 I can not see any of my photos on the blogs and I also can not post any new photos to the blogs. I was able to post to my blogs using Explorer and other people using Firefox 6 can see the photos okay. I have taken a screen snap of the problem if I need to email what the problem looks like to me. This is the 2nd time this has occurred and the 1st time the problem only lasted a few hours but now this is almost a full 24 hour day that it is not working.

It works fine on IE. I disabled all addons 1 by 1 and problem still existed. I then uninstalled Silverlight and Firefox completely clean and reinstalled and problem still exists. It's definitely a Firefox problem since Netflix works fine on IE-6 on up and other browsers. This has to be fixed ASAP or I and 1000,s of other users will be forced to use IE which we all hate and despise. Other posts show that since Firefox 3.6 update that the problem occurred requiring a hard restart. I also had that problem and it was Antivir Antivirus causing a conflict. People posted that adjusting Flash Player fixed the problem. Yea it did when viewing Youtube but that has nothing to do with Netflix since it doesn't use Flash Player. If Silverlight is uninstalled and reinstalled then the problem is gone until the 1st few times of watching Netflix full screen then the problem of full screen freezing reoccurs ASAP.

I upgraded to new firefox 6 and there is this awful Unsorted Bookmarks in the Bookmark Menu. If is forced at the bottom which to me serves no purpose and is annoying. There seems to be no way to delete it or move to a location that you chose. It is nice to have new features, some people may like this, but to make them static so people who do not like this can't turn them off is not what firefox use to be like, it seems the are getting to be more like internet explorer. If there is a way to move or remove it it would be helpful.

I don't care for firefox updates, trying to be bigger and better than the competition, I get it. However, each update is 100% incompatible with Java and in case the individuals who collaborate and makes such updates are unaware, the entire world wide web uses Java. Why would anyone want to use firefox when they can't even use the internet?

Why is it that now for every new FF update a feature is removed?

With the latest release I can no longer "hover over" a link with my pointer to see what URL it is going to.

This is a very important feature and should never have been removed.

To FF programmers, STOP removing features! Please!

Firefox 6.02 crashes or just disappears/closes randomly all the time after it is open for a while. It crashes randomly at any website. Firefox also never generates any crash reports after it crashes or disappears even though I have the option to generate crash reports turned on which is very frustrating. I performed virus and spyware scanning on my pc and never had any issues found. I also checked to see if I had the latest plugins and add-on's. I had this same random crashing problem with the 6.0 and 6.01 versions also.

I originally started using Firefox because of problems with IE which are now fixed. Fire Fox 3xxx was great then 4 came out worked ok till the first update ,then pages will not load completely, wheel just keeps spinning 5 was the same and 6 is the same. one Fix is to turn off Java, this makes the sites load but then other sites require Java, can't keep turning on and off. Why are so many add on not compatible? Please fix the loading problem or I will have to stop using Firefox and I do like it when working right. Windows XP fully up to date all add on s are up to date. There are several site with the problem sometimes they load fine but most of the time they do not Richard

When loading a page using Firefox, at the top of the page, I get a mesage telling me "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page - Allow?" This happens almost every time I begin a new page and Firefox will not allow the page to continue uploading. I have to tell it to allow every time, even on pages I've 'allowed' in the past.

I have successfully been using dropbox to sync Firefox profiles across multiple computers - basically the method was to create a folder in dropbox, copy there the contents of my profile and create new profiles pointing to that folder in my various (windows) machines. Since FF 4 however I have this problem :on start-up of FF on a given machine not all Add-ons are enabled, with FF reporting that some are incompatible with current FF - On running 'Check for Updates' the so called incompatible Add-ons report that they will be enabled when Firefox is restarted, which without downloading any updates they successfully are.

Not all add-ons are affected. I suspect there is a corrupted file somewhere. I slightly modified the question found here : http://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php?id=41983&replies=2#post-349997

NB: syncing with DB is equivalent to manually copying the profile folder from machine to machine and creating a new profile. No reason why it shouldn't work - if one does not browse on 2 machines simultaneously and lets DB sync before launching FF - so please do not answer that this is a DB problem. Also - may be a problem with particular add-ons (some of them had this problem in FF 4, 5 and 6)- but before posting to their threads I post here in case there is a easy solution.

EDIT: confirmed not a DB issue (see title) Profile in custom folder - FF 7.0.1

Thanks
