Why doesn't Firefox 26.0 doesn't show my downloads anymore!!!!

- Session restore brings up tabs that I had closed before closing Firefox. Sometimes it even selects a tab that I didn't have selected when I closed it.

- Leaking memory like nobody's business. It went from 500 MB to 1.5 GB overnight (i.e. while it was "idling" minimized on the desktop).

- The config.trim_on_minimize setting is missing. Why is this?

- When the memory usage gets above ~1 GB (FYI, this is a guess), I start seeing problems with Firefox displaying web-page graphics and even, in one instance, shutting down text input on a web page (this was within Facebook).

- Randomly crashes for no apparent reason. FYI, this happened after I updated to Firefox 28 as well.

None of these problems ever happened before I upgraded to Firefox 28 and 29. I'm very close to abandoning Firefox altogether if these problems are not resolved promptly and permanently. In other words, I've nearly had enough of this. Whatever happened to "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"?

Hello, everyone!

I've filed a bug report here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1004476 The problem is that after installing Firefox 29 with no profile at all and installing any addon that requires a browser restart (NoScript for e.g.) Firefox restarts OK, but after closing it and trying to open again I get a message: "Firefox is already running". I can see in the Task Manager that there is already Firefox running in the background. I've found several people complaining about this issue. Here: http://forums.informaction.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=19612 And here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2825639

Thank you in advance

2nd Update. (Comment by a moderator)
Engineers are working on issues that have been identified.
The known issues are problems with Firefox hanging on closedown resulting in Firefox not restarting unless the hung process is killed.

Workaround ensure Firefox is NOT set to clear History on Close down
Use NewButton New Fx Menu → Preferences → |Privacy| Firefox will: [Remember History v ]

I've been anticipating the new update I was told would be today, and it was. After I updated it to Version 28 I opened FF and it immediately crashed. I sent in a crash report, and did that three other times. So now, sadly, I'm back to version 27 that stinks as well.

Anyone have any ideas as to whats wrong with it?? I checked my addons for compatibility and said they were fine. I did nothing different except update to newest version. Not sure what else to do. I refuse to uninstall anything at this point, although that seems to be the basic "advice" given here.....it never solves my problems LOL

So, what next?? And thanks for any help.

I have Windows 7

I am running Firefox 52.9.0 (32-bit), Win XP PRO SP3 on several computers and only my desktop has this problem.

Youtube videos embedded in other pages do not work and only blank space is displayed but if I go to Youtube the videos play correctly. This only happens in one computer. In other computers running same Firefox 52.9.0 (32-bit), Win XP PRO SP3 this problem does not happen.

I guess it might be some configuration problem.

Trying to allow a manufacturers' system scan after suffering longstanding desktop issues but before this can happen I have to download their support assist launcher. So the problem is, the download is blocked after the run/save window with another saying unknown publisher and so refuses to start downloading. The manufacturer says check internet connection. It's fine Now I've allowed the name of the support launcher in firewall via exceptions but it still won't load. Even tried it with firewall turned off. The download Icon TzsetupSfx, is shown in the downloads folder along with its file version 1.2.0.715 and name of publisher. So what can I do to get the download accepted by Firefox. I'm running 52.7 in win XP 3 pro. The manufacturers' URL is a www.

Several months ago, my smallest window size was less than 2 * 2 inches. Then for no reason, the smallest size became about 2*2 inches. This was larger than I wanted but couldn't figure out why the change occurred or how to change it. So I learned to live with it.

Yesterday (12/19/13) when I logged into Firefox, the minimum size became 4*2 inches. This is too wide for me for many of the views that I want. I have not updated Firefox or Java recently. I don't know why this change occurred and would like to know how to redefine the minimum size window on Firefox.

The minimum size window for my IE browser and my Chrome browser is still 2*2. So the problem with the minimum 4*2 window is with Firefox only.

I'm working with a DELL Desktop DV051 with XP operating system 2002 Service Pack 3; 2.79 GHz; 1.99 GB Ram; Avast security

After adding a keyframe text marquee, all text on the page in view is fuzzy on page load but clears up after scrolling the marquee out of view & remains ok even returning the marquee back in view. I see the same thing on tables but again scrolling the page clears it up. Don't see this problem with chrome. Obviously the marquee is affecting Firefox's text rendering but is there a fix for this?

This error message came up after just a few minutes of FF running. It had just crashed and I rebooted. I'm using XP SP3 and I know I have more tabs than I probably should have opened. Problem is as I work down the line getting rid of them S M is not updating. This time the session that restored was from months ago. I have been bookmarking so all is not lost. If I disable S M ( This Just In: The session/window data is corrupted: undefined(undefined) ). will sessionstore take over? The only problem I had with sessionstore was it only saved one back-up. Tired, I made the mistake of thinking the New Tab that pops up when FF starts was an error, having set FF to open all the previous tabs, I quickly shut it down to save my tabs. knowing no better I killed my only chance of restoring my tabs when I came to my senses and reopened FF to find out if there was anyway to restore my tabs. Ever since I have been looking for a better solution. But it seems that Session Manager is not it. SessionSaver worked, but it's not around anymore. I have a one terabyte drive so memory should not be a problem. So. If I disable Session Manager will sessionstore take over? Otherwise How can I get off this merry go round? Thanks

The Firefox plugin checker is reporting "Update Now" for VLC media player Web Plugin 2.1.0. The 'update now' link invites me to download Plugin 2.1.2. but i already have 2.1.2 installed so the plugin checker is detecting the wrong version. I have had v2.1.2 installed since December 9th 2013 and run the plugin checker on a weekly basis so i'm not sure why it has suddenly decided that this is a vulnerable plugin.

I am running Firefox 26.0 on Windows XP

I have a recurring issue that's really annoying: my left/right arrow keys (including CTRL+arrow keys) occasionally and randomly fail to work when entering text in certain text boxes on certain websites. This never occurs in "simple" unformatted text boxes (Facebook, search boxes, this very box I'm typing in...), but unpredictably happens in more complex ones (WYSIWYG editors, new youtube comments...).

I have tried disabling all extensions and running Firefox in safe mode and this *seems* to have solved the problem, though I can't be sure and I can't isolate which extension it might be, since the issue happens at random: on the same website it will happen and then not happen.

I'm on Firefox 25.0, though I've had this issue for years with countless versions of Firefox.

The extensions I have installed and enabled:

Adblock plus Bamboo Feed Reader, Dimmer, Download Helper, Drag&Drop Zones, Flagfox, FlashVideo Downloader, Flashblock, Flashgot, Grab and Drag, MouseZoom, Status-4-Evar, Youtube High Definition

Thanks in advance for any help you may give me.

I recently made Firefox my default browser, in lieu of Chrome, mainly just for variety and to keep abreast of things; no biggie. There are numerous problems playing videos. I recently solved one big issue, where videos would play but NOT in fullscreen at foxsports.com/foxsportsgo, by disabling hardware acceleration, as suggested under Firefox Help. Thank you. Yes, I've read pretty much ALL of Firefox's canned help suggestions on the topic of video playback problems but I haven't got a solution. I did try doing the master reset as suggested, but it was to no avail. I checked and I have the latest Flash Player plug-in, 15.0.0.189. It's set to Always Activate. I haven't problems with any videos playing when using Chrome. I experienced a number of sites and video play problems but here I'll focus in on just one: a video appears and it seems to have loaded Ok since it shows a frame (a teaser, not the 1st frame); but when I click Play it says, "An error occurred, please try again later" and there's a "Learn More" link. Following that link, the subsequent page says I should wait 30 minutes and then try playback again. That's a crock. As a sample of this problem, go to http://davidblaine.com/video/street-magic and click any of the videos. They all consistently fail for me with that singularly unhelpful generic error message!

[Edit] I just now noticed/realized that I'm on the beta update channel, and just in case that fact is contributing to these video problems, I've uninstalled v34 and installed v33.0.3. But the cited playback problem persists despite the version fallback.
