For the last few weeks mozilla firefox has constantlly crashed and Im getting sick of it.

Every time there is an UPDATE everything is screwed up.

Now I can't even open up mozzilla because I get this window which says firefox has crashed etc etc.

Previously I lost all my bookmarks and I'm really pissed off at this product.

Should have stayed with IE.

Can't find my already-asked question posted on forum so I'm asking again: "Reload" option has disappeared from "View" drop-down in navbar. I have tried all of the following, as suggested by a contributor:

Restarting with Add-Ons Disabled Restarting with "Reset" option Disabling hardware acceleration Completing entire troubleshooting protocol for add-ons & extensions

Nothing has restored the "Reload" option. The Add-Ons Manager tells me there are no extensions installed, so there's nothing I can follow to troubleshoot there.

What else can I do? If nothing, I'm switching to Safari for default browser. Don't want to as I've liked Firefox, but I use "Reload" a LOT and this situation is not sustainable for me.


Really stuck and really

I would like to get the bookmark section back on the left side of the screen which is a much more convenient spot for my application. It appears mozilla has discontinued this, why? The bookmark saving is cumbersome at best. It makes no sense to remove things that work for something that is not necessarily better.

Have never had this problem until a few days ago. Using Windows 7. I like to use sleep mode whenever I leave my desk (whether for a few minutes or several hours). Always has come back just as I left it (tabs, work in progress, etc.) until recently. If I restart, everything's fine, until I use sleep mode again. So vexing.

What I want to know is why Mozilla would, in effect, make it's latest "upgrade " amount to a downgrade...at least for me...and here is the reason- I downloaded Firefox 22 & now the add-on Easy Youtube Downloader is not compatible. For me this add-on is ESSENTIAL. what i had to do was go back to Firefox 21 & I also know of at least 10 other people who did this for the same reason. What i want to know is if & when this add-on will be available with upgrade versions of Firefox. I prefer Firefox over any other browser & would HATE to have to switch because I have been using it for many years. How can I directly contact MF & have them email me or let me know whether this add-on will be available or does anyone have contacts at MF who can let me know? Also still irritated that Google Tool Bar is not compatible & has not been for over a year...come on MF...you are gonna lose customers!

For any videos hosted on yahoo.com and that aren't youtube, they just sit on the black screen with the blue circle cycling through. They never play and this has been an issue for months. Google this problem and you will see how many people have the issue and that no one give an actual fix to the issue. I would think that someone could actually fix this bug at some point but nothing has been done

Locking as a duplicate, please see

  1. copy & paste thread /questions/964115
  2. size & blurry thread /questions/963969

1) Copy/paste function is non-functional. 2) Web pages too large and seemingly out of focus 3) Don't want to have to start tweaking the browser

Firefox has been a wonderful partner for several years but the above issues are bogging down work to a great extent. I'm not a fickle user but I do have work that requires #1 especially. Hope there is a fix in the works because I don't know how to remedy that glitch.

I'm using FF 22 on a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.7.5. In Preferences>Applications I have set the app for mailto as Gmail. However, mailto links refuse to work. They generally open a blank tab. Gmail is also set as the default mail application for the system. That didn't help.
