Hi There,

As of today I seem to be having a strange issue with Firefox 31, I'm unsure as to when this problem began as I haven't developed on this project for around 2 weeks. I have a PHP Development server running on localhost port 8000 using the following command: "bin\php -S localhost:8000 -c php.ini" (without quotes)

Upon trying to connect to this server via Firefox I'm presented with "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 127.0.0.1:8000." the message adjusts to show "localhost:8000" when connecting via that method, I've tried running Firefox in Safe Mode, reinstalling Firefox and also changing the network settings to "No Proxy" from "Using system proxy settings".

I'm able to connect through Chrome, IE and also by running a cURL command.

Just recently (I believe on Oct 30) I have been encountering this problem while trying to log into the Rooster Teeth web site. I have tried clearing cookies and cache multiple times to no effect, and the help page suggestion for the workaround of clicking "Or you can add an exception..." doesn't work because that button does not appear on the warning page anymore. I am only getting this warning error when trying to log into ( http://roosterteeth.com/home.php ) and only while trying to log in, it doesn't pop up for anything else on the site or any other site that I've gone to. Any help on fixing this problem would be greatly appreciated.

I was trying to load facebook.com and this is error it get


The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

any idea how to resolve this?

I am not used to the bookmarks being in a panel either on the left or right of the FF window. I use tabs for places I visit and use Roboform to complete the entry to a particular website of my choosing. All the bookmarks I desire are in Roboform and rarely use FF bookmarks. Firefox is a wonderful tool and I use it exclusively, but sometimes they do come up with something that is intrusive to the way one is used to working. I personally do not like their bookmarks ad where the update has placed them.

There is very common in the section of the plugins, in the AddOn menu, the message that the java plugin is vulnerable an it is to be used with caution. Now in 8.0.25 again. What does it means? Is there or will be there a solution for that? Is NoScript in this case useful, or another security option?

Thanks!

When attempting to watch any programme on LiveGo.tv there is an error message across the screen where I would normally see the programme "Video format or MIME type is not supported" I have never had this before with Windows XP or Windows 10 but I now have a new PC with Windows 8.1 installed as the OS.

Any fixes?

I frequently switch between different headsets and speakers using USB audio devices. Whenever I change from audio device to another, Firefox does not change it's audio output to match my current device. Other programs/games follow suit when I change my default audio device and I really dislike that I have to exit out of Firefox completely and reopen for my audio to come through the correct device. It's not a huge issue, but when I have multiple windows and multiple tabs open it can be annoying having to start my browsing session all over again. Any tips to deal with this issue?

Thanks!

I tried to use Firefox in three different computers but only in the one with over 4 GB of ram is usable. Why it uses so much RAM and renders so slow? Specially the scroll is really laggy.

I tried clean installations but they do not fix the issue.

When opening Firefox and Chrome and playing a video in YouTube, Firefox uses over 500 MB while Chrome uses less than 300 MB. Both with the same single addon.

Is there something that can be done to use Firefox in computers with less than 4 gb of RAM?

So when I turned on my computer today I opened Firefox, and it updated like it does. Normally, this isn't an issue. When I opened it up today, however, all of my addons were disabled. I re-enabled them, but it didn't quite go back to normal. Normally, I keep the Adblock Plus and YouTube HD addons to the right of my search bar. But for whatever reason, I just can't get them to show like they're supposed to. Now, there's a magnifying glass on the right part of my search bar that wasn't there before, and anything I put to the right of the search bar is hidden and only accessible by clicking on the little arrow button and finding it in a context menu. I don't want the arrow button, I want the addons to be visible in the pane next to the search bar. And if anyone knows how to get rid of the magnifying glass, that would also be appreciated. Also worth mentioning is that the only addons I have that affect UI are Classic Theme Restorer and TabMixPlus.
