Today I opened Firefox 36 and saw that there's and update. I updated it to version 37.0.1. After I restarted the browser, I realized that it works very slow and opens an Advertisement pop-up with this address: http://offers.bycontext.com/scjs/tb/ctxjs/index.php?kw2=www.softgozar.com&affid=1145&subaff_id=888888000000000000&intformat=roll&nextpage=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.softgozar.com%2FWebPage%2FSoftwareDescription.aspx%3FSoftwareId%3D21%26Title%3DMozilla-Firefox-3701-Farsi-Cyberfox-3701-x64-Waterfox-3604-x64&ch=6801&sbrand=name&folder=v6.5.1&typrd=ctx&cu=31661&country=WW&original_country= It's really annoying. I didn't install any untrusted add-ons and my Firefox always updates itself from Mozilla. Please help. I really need it. Thanks.

Image shows booting into everyday, newly updated to v.37 FF, with all addons enabled. FF booted into safe mode looks exactly the same. Have already tried disabling WindowBlinds (provider of title bar skin); that made no difference. Have disabled/enabled/disabled hardware acceleration of video. No good. Hardware drivers up-to-date (unless they've released one in the past week). I hate using IE, and I'd rather not load Chrome. My time for playing with multiple browsers has been over since HotJava.

Hi there, let me explain my problem.

We need to offer an book to people buying for donation to congress. ( Order form is here: http://christian-heritage.eserbia.org/order )

So, we have page for selecting persons or institution for donation. Buying goes via PayPal. After patron pay books using PayPal we must know whom to donate payed books.

We have tried following: 1. Patron should select person in the page ( http://christian-heritage.eserbia.org/order ) 2. After this he should click on PayPal button "Pay Now" and this click brings user to PayPal. ... and how to record patron's choice in the form ( http://christian-heritage.eserbia.org/order ) ? After one submit form to PayPal, all data about users selections in the form are lost.

Solution was : On click on the button "Pay Now", before submit, collect patron's selections (using JS) and using AJAX post data to php script for saving to database. After this, submit only books quantity to PayPal for buying. And this works in all popular browsers except Firefox (tested in Chrome, IE, Opera and all works fine.)

More details with codes (code is simplified):


$('#beforesend').on('click', function(){

  var data = 'quantity=' + books_qty;
   $('#result li').each(function(ind){

data = data +"&dat[][users choices from form]" });

     ....
      $.ajax({

url: "app/ordering.php", //Record user choices to database. type: 'POST', data: data, dataType: 'text' }).done(function(dat) { console.log(dat); }).fail(function(jqXHR, textStatus) { console.log("Firefox paranoia..."); return false; });

      $('#buy').submit();       // Without this line AJAX works... but  we can't send post to PayPal.
      return true;

}



I can't see security risk if this AJAX post goes to the same domain as script domain.

As I said, this script worked in all tested browsers except Firefox.


Sorry for my not so best English. :(

Best regards.

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.gmail.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate. www.gmail.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided.

(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

I have Firefox 35.0.1 and I've been trying to update it. I get the notification for the update, click on it, it prompts me to restart Firefox, so I click restart and after it restarts, it prompts me to update again and in About, it still says I'm at 35.0.1.

TL;DR: I'm getting recursive update notifications that never update. Restart, update, restart, update, restart, update...

Hello there, I am having a problem where in firefox the gmail page resolution is far to low. The images are very large and the fonts and such are spaced out greatly. Comparing gmail in chrome I can see at least 50% or more of my emails and images are much smaller. I have gone to other sites and there is no resolution problem. Both chrome and firefox show the same for all other sites. It is specific to the gmail page and potentially all google product pages.

Can I fix this problem. It is a bit confusing.

I am working from a brand new instal of Windows; also new video card, processor, hard drive. Last night Firefox was crashing every five minutes. It crashed once before I put on my addons, and multiple times after (somewhere around 30 times). I tried rolling back to an older version of Firefox and that crashed as well. It will either crash on startup, or it will open my tabs and then shut down.

Here is the information that might be helpful: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-864db5b8-b866-4d20-9f60-913862150406

I ran Firefox reset to get rid of my add-ons, but they were: Extensions: Adblock plus 2.6.9, Amazon Smile 1button for Firefox, Norton Toolbar 2014.7.12.7, reddit enhancement suite 4.5.4, abd speed dial [fvd] 6.6.7.

Theme: Fractal Frost

Plugins: OpenH264 Video by Cisco 1.3 (always activate); Shockwave flash 13.0.0.277 (always); NVIDIA 3d vision 7.17.13.4788 (ask to activate) - 2 of these, one Vision and one Vision Streaming; and WildTangent Games (never activate/disabled).

It has crashed at least 3 times since I reset Firefox.

Greetings, whenever i open a new tab the page always directs to "chrome://quick_start/content/index.html" which would be alright except that page doesn't seem to exist, I believe it may have been hijacked by a "fake add-on update" whilst my mom was using my laptop, anyways I've tried to remove every trace of the update and undo all it's changes, however i can't seem to get this right, even if it is to direct the new tab to a new site..e.g google.com that would be helpful, thanks in advance! Much appreciated.
