Hello - For some reason my Firefox install is not displaying web fonts properly - It may have been doing this before the 13 upgrade. Doesn't matter if it's @font-face or Typekit or whatever, it's just goes down the fallback list until it finds one that I have installed on my computer.

Awhile back I was installing a program and it had something that asked if I wanted to install the yahoo toolbar and I accidentally installed it as the checkbox was already checked. I uninstalled it right after but ever since then I have had pages (mainly on my localhost) which aren't 404's redirect to Yahoo 404 pages; these pages work fine in other browsers.

I did some searching and found out this may have been caused by Yahoo's "404 Assistant"; so I reinstalled the toolbar, unchecked that option and then removed it again...... but the problem still remains.

Please help!!

I typed in the website (www.n2yo.com) and pressed return to open it. Unfortunately it just keeps acting as if it is refreshing and not opening the webpage. Ie the image to the left of the url keeps flashing in alternation with a square like shape, and the progress circle and line at the top just keeps flashing and resetting.

It worked fine yesterday. Certain parts of the website worked fine earlier today also. But now every variation of a page within that site seems to be doing the same thing.

Thoughts? Guidance?

After installing the newest version of Flash Player, on most YouTube videos I try to play the message, "An error occurred. Please try again later." comes up. Also, on websites like Tumblr other media, like audio and videos uploaded there, don't play at all - it's just a blank white space where it should be. This all works fine in Chrome. I've tried everything I can think of - I cleared the cache and removed cookies, updated all plug-ins, uninstalled and reinstalled both Flash and Firefox, disabled Ad-Block, ran it in Safe Mode and private browsing, restarted my laptop a couple of times - but none of it worked.

Hi,

I got an update to Mozilla Firefox over the weekend, and since then, it's not been working 100% correctly. I have version 13.0.1

I use gmail, but now can't seem to log in. I can get to the log in page no problem, but when I out my details in it tries to connect but nothing really happens (you can see "Connecting..." with the moving circle in the title field of the tab, so it seems to be doing something, but nothing actually happens).

Sometimes I get the "loading mynamegoeshere@gmail.com..." with the progression bar underneath, but the bar stays clear all the time. I don't always even get that far, sometimes it stays on the log-in page even though the Connecting circle is moving, sometimes it just changes to a blank page.

There has been one occasion when I got to the inbox, but only the HTML version (you know the one that you get if you have a slow connection), but then I couldn't actually open my emails and eventually logged out. That has not happened since.

I also use another gmail account for work (which we use by logging in through a portal on our website), and have been having a similar problem with that, only that sometimes the pop up window that appears just comes up as an about:blank tab.

Refreshing the page (for either account) doesn't seem to have any effect.

I can get around the problem for the moment by using IE, but for a host of reasons I'd prefer to be able to use Firefox.

Is there any way of fixing this? I have looked here http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-problems-connecting-websites-after-updating?s=firefox+13.0.1+gmail+problems&r=4&e=es&as=s and updated my Windows Firewall putting Mozilla in as an exception, but that doesn't seem to have made a difference.

This also applies to other Google stuff like the calendar.

I am not having any problems with other websites.

I use AVG for my anti-virus, but Windows Firewall.

Thanks

Every time I try to play a YouTube video or a streaming song on Grooveshark, on Firefox, the sound is very choppy. It stutters and sounds similar to the way your voice sounds if you are speaking through the rotating blades of an electric fan.

The problem began shortly after I disabled the Paging File (swap file) on Windows XP Professional (due to a nearly full hard drive). After freeing up some space on my hard drive, I re-enabled the paging file, but the problem persists.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I attempted:

1) Ran Firefox in Safe Mode

2) Went to Control Panel-->Flash Player-->Advance-->Delete All Browsing Data and Settings

3) Cleared Cached Web Content in Firefox

4) Troubleshooting Information-->Reset Firefox

5) Uninstalled Firefox as directed by Mozilla (deleted Program Files-->Mozilla Firefox folder, then re-downloaded and reinstalled Firefox)

The sound is fine when listening to these websites in Internet Explorer, so the problem does not appear to be hardware-related. It is specific to Firefox.

Firefox is fast when using Windows directly. But when using RDP it is very slow. For example, empty new tab takes about 6 seconds to open. The RDP connection is fast and other programs response immediately (e.g. browsing of the same pages in IE is fast). What is the problem with Firefox?

So most updates stop the functionality of addons I REQUIRE DAILY! I would rather ONLY UPDATE AFTER MY NECESSARY ADDONS ARE COMPATIBLE. Other than that IE is as functional as Firefox. Without functioning addons Firefox is pointless. Please allow us(the end user) the ability to wait till addons are compatible before we(the end user) choose to update.

Problem has only started since I upgraded to BitDefender 2013 from BD 2012. When I've used the "add exception" I've gotten a very basic page. Example- tried to log in on my att-Yahoo email and got the TCU message. Did the "add exception" and now instead of the sign in screen I've always had it is now a very basic left justified page. Why? When I sign out of my att-Yahoo home page I get the TCU for cprox.att.net. This even happened when I tried to sign President Obama's B-day card! (A Republican plot?) I think there is a problem between Firefox and BitDefender 2013.

As of 6/10/12, Adobe flash 11.3 would NOT work in Firefox 13. On any web site. I had no problems with IE. I run Vista, latest update.

None of the posted answers on this site solved my own particular problems.

This is how I successfully addressed the issue:

1) I removed all Adobe Flash caches as directed in http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/flash-player-games-video-or.html#main_6__Remove_Flash_Player_cache .

2) I uninstalled all instances of Adobe Flash through Programs and Features in the Control Panel.

3) I restarted my computer and Firefox.

4) I opened YouTube in Firefox. It directed me (automatically) to install Adobe Flash 11.2.202.235. Though I was aware of that version as the version previous to the current version (11.3), I was unable to locate it for download on the Adobe site.

Flash then worked again in Firefox 13.0.
