Firefox 12 is very slow to load pages and if two tabs are opening it lags. I've tried everything (e.g virus, defrag, I've created a new profile in "run", etc). I've had my router/line etc all checked and after 2 weeks of cleaning/testing etc its all pointing to Firefox as the problem. Please help as it's driving me nuts.

After upgrading from Firefox 11 to 12 I'm having serious problems with Firefox over-caching pages.

For example if you: Go to a URL where you can enter comments. If after comments are entered you are sent back to the same URL Firefox is showing the old page (without your new comments). You have to do a refresh to see the new page (with the new comment)

Even if the page has PHP headers: header('Cache-Control: no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate'); header('Pragma: no-cache'); header('Expires: 0');

Firefox ignores this too.

There's an annoying pop-up that loads every time I start Firefox. It tells me to upgrade my operating system, as the latest version of Firefox doesn't support it. But it's the most advanced version of the OS my system will cope with, so that's not an option.

How do I turn the pop-up off?

I still have this problem and now it is starting to affect the browsers functionality and useability. When Firefox is my default browser any link outside of Firefox (like in my e-mail) won't open which is becoming a nuisance. I am running Windows 7 which may be the cause of the problem via a setting but I can't locate the needle in the haystack or it may have happened at a Firefox update. Firefox has been my favorite and only browser since Netscape 1.0 but if I can't resolve this problem I will have to switch to another which I really don't want to do. Help!!!

bold textIn the past few days I started getting an error when ever I tried to play a video. I'd get "an error has occurred, please try again later". I did, but I get the same error on all videos, regardless of location or topic.

To fix and troubleshoot, I tried disabling Real Player extension - no joy. I tried Safe Mode - no joy. I UNINSTALLED and REINSTALLED all of my Adobe apps with the most current versions (Reader, Air, Shockwave, Player,etc.) - no joy.

The only changes that have taken in place anywhere near the start of this issue are 25 Windows updates over the past 72 hours or so. All called "Security" or ":NET Framework" updates.

I am running Win 7 HP X64 on a HP Envy i7 laptop. Unless Youtube has done something to cause this, it almost has to be those Windows updates. Any solution? And why can't you make FF 12.0 compatible with Deng bookmarks and Real Player? All these FF update that turn off my favorite add-ons and and extensions are NOT welcomed! Can't you work out these issuye BEFORE you visit them on your users? Try working with these other providers, BEFORE publication. Bad form!

Hi,

It started last night, corrected itself the next morning, and by afternoon it was permanent.

It shows up on the Google Search engine as Google espanol.

I have decided I want Google out anyway. I am fed up with them.

So, how do I replace Google Search with Bing Search?

In English please.

Thanks for the help. I might could do it myself but I don't read Spanish. Help.

I can access the same site from other computers using FireFox in the same local network. But on this PC FireFox claims that the certificate issuer is untrusted (sec_error_untrusted_issuer) and does NOT give me the option to decide myself. Frankly I'm freaking out by this incredible decision to take control away from the user. A warning is nice and appreciated, but I should ALWAYS have the right to take the risk. Actually I knew what I was doing and I was in a hurry and it was important to get access. I HATE Firefox for this :-(.

I short ... I want to see the warning but I want to be able to access anyway.

I already deleted cert8.db while restarting FF ... didn't solve the problem. I believe my mail operator is INDEED sending the wrong certificate, but I don't care. I want access. Man in the middle ... OK, I usually don't use the webmailer, but I want to be able, damnit.

I live in a remote and rural location. Dial-up internet is the only option. Broadband is not available.

The large Version 44.0 update file download will not remain on-line because of rural dial-up limitations.

I've tried a good quality Download Manager software. But the Firefox Update Version 44.0 webpage will not allow the RESUME command needed for a large file download using dial-up internet.

I cannot upgrade to Broadband. I cannot download the Version 44.0 file---it produces a corrupted file--or webpage refuses RESUME command.

A creative workaround from an open-minded Firefox savvy individual is requested.

Thank you in advance :)

I have read and tried several suggestions on how to change my search engine to google and it will not change to google. I have deleted anything yahoo from my computer, I did the troubleshoot suggestions, I used malawarebytes, and microsoft essentials. Additionally, I deleted the spigot/youtube downloader and toolbar, that includes the add-ons, ms config, the registry, and in my programs. Does anyone know, outside what has already been mentioned what I can do to change the yahoo search engine to google. I would like to add, I still have the same issue in safe mode.

This problem has been so frustrating it actually got me to finally upgrade from 3.6 to 12.0. Sadly (for me), the problem still existed after upgrade.

When I put it any zipcode or any search criteria for searching on the main page (Find a home) of REALTOR.COM and press the Orange SEARCH button, only the banner displays, not the search results. The url that shows up on the mostly empty page is bogus and seems incomplete (http://www.realtor.com/search/SearchRoute.aspx?). The url that shows up on a working environment after a search is http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-search/01740 (e.g.).

I found 2 similar questions from 10 mo. ago on forum, ea. w/ 25-30 additional people experiencing the prob. 2 weeks ago i asked about 2 problems, have been unable to repair them. Now focussing on this one only. Session restore does not function after quitting, and Restore previous session, recently closed tabs, recently closed windows all grey. I've tried everything short of uninstall/reinstall FF. Was suggested to create new profile w/o corrupted files, but I've no idea what's corrupted. I'm no geek, but can usually follow instructions. however, my concentration is impaired, so I'm really afraid of making things worse.
