The error message is as follows: "A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue."

It doesn't matter how you respond, the only way to clear the lock up is using the Task Manager to end Firefox.

I have cleared the Firefox cache and cookies, but the problem still happens.

I had a malware infection recently, but I've cleared most of it out. The only remaining effect seems to be that, in addition to starting where I left off, launching Firefox opens an additional tab accessing "Index of file:///C:/PROGRA~2/MOZILL~1/". Every scanner I've used says the malware itself is gone, but this effect won't go away.

I recently refreshed Firefox, and found myself suddenly dealing with an inability to clearly see and read what the letters on my screen were. I tried to change the font back to what it was, and that failed. I thought maybe refreshing again would fix the problem (I'm and optimist), but no. Changing the setting in options changes nothing in my browser. It's irritating because I don't like other browsers, but unless this can be corrected, I may have to find a new one.

To start off, I'm using the latest version of Firefox on my Dell Inspiron 1440 laptop, running Win 7 Pro.

I use Bing for image searching, because it is better than Google, particularly for finding gifs. However, since last updating Firefox last week, Firefox has been crippling Bing's image search results. Instead of pages of images, I get a limited selection, most of which doesn't apply to what I've asked for. When I try the same query, in the exact same words, in both IE and Firefox, I get a good selection of images with IE 11, but a paltry few with Firefox.

At first I thought the problem was with Bing, but I checked IE 11 on this computer using Bing, and I don't have this problem with IE; the image search results are normal.

For instance, when I search "Donald Trump Memes" using Bing in Firefox:

(I would have a series of 7 images to illustrate my point, but for whatever reason they won't upload.)

Starting this morning, when I tried to open FF, Crash Reporter popped up. When I tried again, same thing. It takes 3 to 6 times of "restart firefox" before FF finally opens.

I restored via MozBackup to a version of a month prior, but no difference.

I tried starting Safe Mode. The first time, it opened. I then closed FF, and every next time, same old problem.

I tried disabling all add-ons. No change.

I entered: about:crashes and got a long list of bp files. What might I try???

After I delete recent history it can connect to google.com, but once the history entries start to increase (after two or three times I make a search with google.com) the tabs says "Connecting..." and the bottom status bar "Waiting for www.google.com... but nothing happens.

B"H

My Firefox crashes on a page from my personal website: http://www.doviddebresser.info/Collection.php?letter=g

These pages show a large amount of small images. The strange thing is that only the letter "g" crashes, and "g" is by far not the page with the largest amount of images (that would be "s").

Another strange thing is that Firefox crashes right away when I try to open the page, not after beginning to open the page, as usually happens when there are too many images on the page, that the crash occurs after Firefox already shows a few hundred images.

I have the latest Firefox version: 46.0.1. Windows 7 with more or less the latest updates. The problem also occurs in safe mode. The problem does not occur using Internet Explorer. I have a few add-ons, like dictionaries, but nothing special. Java is also updated. I also have the Adblock plus extension, but it is de-activated on my userpage.

Firefox worked fine until the most recent "update" and now it crashes repeatedly, even in safe mode.

Firefox works (sort of) but many different things trigger yet another crash, including just trying to open a tab or almost anything in the menu.

I can open a private viewing window and look at extensions and add-ons, and I have tried disabling all of them, but nothing helps.

Searching mozilla help pages and everything else google can find and I've tried everything that everybody has suggested ... and I see that lots of other people are having the same problem.

Please help!!!
