Not sure what triggered a recent change: either a Firefox update or a change to my IMAP server password. I used to see all my IMAP folders on Firefox - now I only see the standard folders: Inbox, Sent, Junk, Trash, Drafts. The folders still exist on the server, but don't show up on Firefox. All the folders are marked as "subscribed" on the server.

I check for updates every time I launch Firefox.

This morning (25AUG16) my WIN8.1 PC updated from 48.0.1 to 48.0.2.

My 10.10.5 MAC continues to list 48.0.1 as the latest update. I relaunched Firefox several times and "refreshed" Firefox.

I checked "About Firefox" several seconds ago and it still lists 48.0.1 as the latest update. Up until now I have never seen different versions on the MAC and the PC.

Should 48.0.2 be available for the MAC or is the 48.0.2 running on the PC somehow "bogus"?

I type in my email address and password (correctly!) in Facebook, click log in, and the two field clear. No error message appears. I try a couple of times without success and finally change my password in FB. That works until I log out of FB. Then, the problem appears and I have to repeat changing password... etc.

This problem does NOT occur if I use Safari

In the past week or so, Ive been seeing a box in my junk mail that says to report spam here. It is in the body of the mail. I clicked it and it gives a link to ask a question about it It's a red screen and says this site is known for Phishing etc... and gives this address 46.182.32.110 It has another link that says " why is this paged blocked?" I clicked it and it took me to supposedly Your site and has all the preferences etc showing you how to use your privacy settings etc...Sometimes the mails do not have this option. And sometimes if you click it you go to a blue screen , supposedly Yahoo thanking you for marking it as spam and tells you to click the button to the right to close. I don't see a button on the right on my MAC. I went to the Apple store yesterday to have it scanned for Malware and install a program to use on it. Is that a legit program now with you? Funny thing is.....I have gone from 100-200 spams per day to maybe 10-15 !! Whats Up??????

On Windows 7 Enterprise, x64, FF v. 48.0.2, tried both x64 and x86 and same problem occurs.

Following launch, FF opens to start page tab, with the default browser question popup. Thereafter, it is unresponsive. Task Manager shows "Not Responding". Processes shown as taking around 145,000K of memory.

I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling multiple times.

I tried to start in Safe Mode from command line, and the Safe Mode dialog appears, but buttons are also nonresponsive and will not proceed.

I do not see any crash reports, just InstallTime files, and the events folder is empty.

I have done numerous malware checks.

I don't know what else to try.

Thanks for any help.

I'm experiencing some issues on djshop.de / dj-shop.at with latest Firefox 64-bit and Waterfox also. The player on this website doesn't play any sounds. But it works successfully on 32-bit FF, IE or Google Chrome. I've been told that it is Firefox issue as there's no problem on other browsers.

Firefox v48.0.1 OS X yosemite

In the last 2-3 weeks I am noticing that the browser screen isnt repainting when switching between tabs. Typically the browser screen will be frozen on the content of the last tab opened. To see content of the other tabs the last tab needs to be closed. This is pretty making Firefox unusable.

Hello Mozilla,

When attempting to access Sky Fantasy Football Site above I get repeated......

"Whoops! You appear to have lost your connection! Please ensure you have an internet connection and then try again"

I am not alone, there are many people on the Sky forum with same issue and they have marked it down to a bug in Firefox, which would appear to be correct because Google Chrome and Safari both work

Have tried uploading the screen shot below but that does not appear to be working

Thanks Paul

Dramatis Personae:

Me (a Chrome user, but attempting to help a Struggling Co-worker) Struggling Coworker (co-worker who is not tech savvy, prefers Firefox, and would like to keep the Firefox settings he has been using historically) Poser Coworker (the guy who broke Struggling Coworkers Firefox)

Issue:

I am submitting this on behalf a Struggling Coworker. Last week, Poser Coworker made some kind of changes to Struggling Coworker's preferred Brower, Firefox, supposedly to speed up or make Firefox more efficient. Struggling CW is unsure of what Poser CW did, aside from "remove a series panes." As of writing this post, his Firefox runs for a few seconds or minutes and then crashes. Any fixes involving the search box will not work, as the search box does not execute on anything inputted therein (Firefox just sits there doing nothing, no error message, no thinky icon, just the original input information as entered). The issue is not the internet connection nor the hardware, as Struggling CW is using successfully Chrome as a workaround.

Our IT vendor has traditionally been of limited assistance, so while Struggling CW has engaged IT vendor, it may be more efficient to receive feedback from the Mozilla community, where there are people who know what they are talking about and are motivated to fix the problem (as an example, IT vendor cannot even successfully explain to me or provide me instructions for the proper Outlook settings to get it to work with the email server and security settings that they have arranged, while sales tech company's IT successfully instructed me to set up a complicated security device on a different network, so it's not me!)

I have already attempted the fix recommended here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1075976); the problem persists as described. My objectives here are to get Firefox fully functional without losing any Struggling CW's settings or profile data. The issue, I am guessing, is either with Firefox or some process that Firefox uses with his operating platform and/or his PC).

OS = Windows 7 Professional (64 bit)

PC = Dell Optiplex 3010

Processor = Intel Core i5-3470 CPU @ 3.20 GHz

RAM = 4 GB

Firefox version = 48.0.2.6079
