When I right-click to bring up the drop-down menu and chose "copy" to copy text from the browser my entire computer freezes for 1-2 min before allowing me to do something with what I've copied.

I've cleaned out the cache, history and run CC cleaner. I've run FF in safe mode with no problems but I can't seem to figure if an add-on is causing the problem. I use the same add-ons on all my computers and it only causes a problem on my desktop.

How do I tell FiIrefox to only restore a sesson of more than one tab, and disregard the restore of a single tab session (ie. closing the browser)

I am on the beta channel of Firefox (currently 17.0, by the about window) and I cannot seem to find a way to limit the size of a browsing session that is automatically restored when re-opening the browser. In the past, Firefox would only save sessions of more than one tab when closing the entire application, and ask me about restoring said session when restarted. Now, Firefox seems to treat a session of just a single tab the same, which is a preference I dislike, given that I use a blank start page to great effect.

I am using a number of addons, including Tab Mix Plus, which specifically modifies tab behavior (although I have it configured to use Firefox's default session manager), but the problem persists even with all addons disabled.

I cannot seem to find an option in about:config to change this behavior. Is this a permanent change within Firefox, and if so, is there or will there be an option to specify the number of tabs that constitute a session that will be automatically saved?

The link I was using was to the Old Yahoo Mail site, so the thought was they've closed the link to force users to start using the New Yahoo!

I also get this distorted page with text on the left side along with no images when going to facebook.com, but once I login and get to the content, the page is fine. With Twitter, no matter what page I go to, it shows up in this format.

I just got a brand spanking new Win 8 computer (intl English). The only things installed on it are Adobe Master's Collection, Steam, Office and Firefox. In addition I tried installing adblocker, because that's a must for me and if this problem is resolved by removing it I will have to switch to another browser.

Now, the problem is that FF is having problems loading pages with CSS. Occasionally, this results in a pages with nothing at all (except background color, it seems) or with just unformatted text. Most of the time this is fixed by doing a shift+reload, but not always. Some times it's just partially fixed and some elements don't load still.

I've tried disabling all extensions and plugins and I've also tried resetting FF. The problem always comes back. I've even tried resetting my hosts file.

Do you have any more ways of fixing it? I believe I've done everything in my power, except change browsers (which I really don't want to do unless it's my only option).

The only thing I haven't tried, which I'll try now, is unpin all my app tabs and see if that fixes anything. I'll update this if I can...

Pages affected: Facebook (some of the time), Couch Potato (installed on my server - never seen this on other computers or even other browsers on my computer, always), MyFitnessPal (occasionally), and some low-tech dating page I'm on.

Cheers, Lars

I have upgrade my Firefox to the 17 version and it worked just fine from the beginning but it have become slower and slower on communication to the internet. I have used your product for some time and I like it but this is not ok. I upgrade the system as soon as there is something new. It is important for me to be able to save the bookmarks. I use the Swedish version!
