Since yesterday, and after updating to a new version (39.0), I am facing a problem with Firefox not loading some web pages, although it can be done with Chrome and Safari. I've tried almost everything which is suggested here and there but nothing works. It would be nice if someone could give me a way out of this problem.

Disabling hardware acceleration also screws up font anti-aliasing

As in title.

First screenshot shows what happens with hardware acceleration enabled, which looks better, second screenshot shows how it looks aliased with acceleration disabled, with the stroke missing in certain places on very light fonts.

However, when hardware acceleration is enabled, if I open very large images or lots of inline images at a time, the browser window will flash white, all tabs will lose their favicons, and the browser must be restarted. For this reason I'm looking to keep hardware acceleration disabled, but use it (or its method) for rendering fonts only, if such a thing is possible. Alternatively I'd like a fix for hardware acceleration causing such behavior, although that seems more difficult.

Cleartype and font smoothing are both on systemwide. Disabling any of them makes the fonts even worse.

Thanks in advance.

I'm using Windows 7 64-bit, latest version of Firefox.

www.vine.co won't load, it just shows this loading circle you can see in the attached file, forever. The website loads just fine in other browsers.

I've tried to load the website with different profiles, safe mode and even in a different PC. The result is the same.

The strange thing is that I'm able to see embedded vines in sites like Twitter, but if I click the "View on the web" link, it won't load.

Please help me.

Firefox keeps freeing/hanging. First you will see the errors that pop up for me. Then the troubleshooting I have done to solve this problem.

Script Error: Script: http://z-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/browser-scripts/imageBlock/imageBlock-3190704718._V1_.js:773

Script: http://z-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/digital/sitb/reader/v4/201411111537/en_US/sitb-library-js._V319867744_.js:34


Script: http://z-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/browser-scripts/site-wide-js-1.2.6-beacon/site-wide-5809221203._V1_.js:184


For troubleshooting I have tried the following: disable addon's and restart in safe mode (did not help) disable theme and restart in safe mode (did not help) reset firefox (did not help) uninstalled Firefox & removed all traces of browser from my computer (yes even the registry was removed)


after doing the above I still had all my previous settings. I used IE to download a fresh copy and tired again. Still have all my settings, plugin's, tabs, and unremoved cookies and a little history

I am not tech savvy but the script errors made me think of Javascript. I went to about:config and searched for Java when javascript.enabled showed up I disabled and the problem has disappeared.

I know I need this javascript enabled. I cannot do much of anything at my site with is disabled.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this script hanging problem.

Thanks for any help.

Please fix Mozilla Firefox. Suggesting that users get rid of skype is not a solution. I have an older computer, and when I use that, I don't have these script errors, apparently because that computer wouldn't accept the latest skype update. So no problem on that one. I need skype on both computers and I can't continue working at the slow pace that this script message is causing.

I don't like the animation firefox's using to go fullscreen. I disabled "browser.fullscreen.animateUp" by changing value to zero. Now the problem is I don't see tab bar when I hover mouse on top of screen. This option is not simply disabling the animation but also my access to tab bar in fullscreen. Is there a work around? Thanks.

One installation of Firefox 38.0.5 on windows 8.1 does not display spinner box controls (see attached image). They are there but with 1 or 2 pix height as clicking the grey bar sometimes increases and sometimes decreases the numeric value.

Tried creating a new profile with no addons. Same problem. Haven't tried reinstalling Firefox yet.

This is not a problem with the website as this occurs on all sites with this type of form element.

It is also probably not a Firefox bug as I have Firefox 38.0.5 on Windows 7 at work that displays these form elements correctly.

Zoom (Ctrl +/-) does not change the erroneous appearance of the controls.

Any idea how to fix this?
