Occasionally when I go to webpages the entire page will turn black. This most often occurs when scrolling, but can also happen when loading a page or even randomly. Usually, but not always, more scrolling fixes it. shortly after getting these problems Firefox will often crash.

I print several EBAY labels a day. Just upgraded to firefox 29 (not realizing really what had changed - now regretting) and the built in PDF viewer no longer prints properly. It shows the label fine on the screen, but when sending to the printer (I tried two different ones) it just prints out two blanks pages. I tried a number of different printer settings and as i mentioned two different printers. Can't get anything to print now except two blank pages. If I switch the application settings in firefox to use an external 3rd party PDF viewer (e.g. Adobe reader 11, PDF Viewer plus, etc) those work fine. However, the default built in PDF viewer clearly broke in this new version. A very disappointing launch for me as this is critical feature for my use. Yes, I have a work around, but the point (and new bug) is still valid.

I recently updated Firefox from v29.0.1 to v30.0. Each time I exit the program, the following dialogue box is displayed after the Firefox window has closed:


Firefox has stopped working

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.

[ Close the program ]


When I reinstalled v29.0.1 the problem stopped.

Until v30.0 all Firefox updates have worked with little or no problems.

Anyone else having this issue?

Firefox has become very slow to load.

After about four minutes, the Firefox frame for a webpage appears. Eventually the screen for my homepage (Bing) fills the screen. I receive the following error message: "Warning: Unresponsive script: A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding....Script: chrome://browser/content/places/browser Places Views.js: 115"

Is this script connected to Bing or to Firefox?

If Firefox, how can I stop evoking this error? I uninstalled Chrome from my laptop and would strongly prefer not to use it.

I clean out my Internet cache, using CCleaner, every night. Often the files add up to 200 to 320 MB.

Win XP Pro SP3.

Thanks so much for your help.

This has been happening for awhile now and I have tried a few things to fix it, but I just can't seem to narrow down the cause of it. Of the course of a session Firefox will open additional processes http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a253/ravenillusion/Screenshot2014-05-14144644_zpsedeb97f0.png. Each of these processes is using around 4MB of RAM and can be closed without affecting Firefox. When you close Firefox these additional processes do not close and will prevent you from reopening Firefox until they are closed. So far the most I have clocked were 50 of them and having to close them manually is a pain. I have tried adjusting my addons and that has not solved the issue. I have a feeling and a believe it is related I am getting an error every time close Firefox:

I brought my father a new PC and three months later had to do a complete windows reset because he does not know how to browse the internet. He infected it with malware, causing software errors, and causing some Win 8 files to be corrupted where Blue Screens of Death started to appear. All but one malware was removed and the unremoveable one was one of those persistent ones that keep reinstalling itself as a browser plugin. What I need to know is how to prevent firefox from being able to download and install plugins. I setup a basic secondary account (a standard user user, no admin privileges), setup the windows 8.1 family filter and the internet security software's own family for two layers of protection, but I can not prevent firefox from downloading/installing new plugins. How do I make it impossible to add plugins unless permission is granted? The fact that firefox (I use 29.0.1) can potentially install plugins when the user account I setup blocks software installation is a security risk for me.

I can then return to the offending website and it doesn't do it. If I click on another page of the website though, it begins all over again.

I don't know what it is called, autocomplete or autofill? Anyway, every time when I type in log-on box of ANY forum, email account, any account, firefox remembers the sign-on information and autofill it. I don't want this function. I only want the autofill to work in location bar on the top, which it works. But it is autofilling every and any sign-on box. Really bad. And no, it does not autofill password, which is good. I don't want autofill for password, either. Is there a way to ask Firefox to just autofill search box on the top but nothing else? I am running on windows 7 and firefox 29.0. Thanks.

Before the update, I was able to use Stylish to get this functionality. However, something is broken with how -moz-box-ordinal-group functions. The only valid entries are 0 (places it above the Menu Bar) or !0 (places it at the very bottom).

Neither of those two places are what I desire. Here is what I'm aiming for, from top to bottom:

Menu Bar
Bookmarks Toolbar
Tabs
Address Bar

See this Stylish for a picture of what I used to have:
http://userstyles.org/styles/46274/firefox-4-bookmarks-toolbar-above-tabs-enhanced

So, my question here is, how can I restore this functionality? Having bookmarks below the address bar does not follow logic, in my mind. And this "now things are easy to customize how you want it!" thing that Australis is supposed to allow... doesn't let me customize it how I want it.

Any help would be appreciated, be it a config setting, a plugin, or some CSS I can plug into Stylish.

I get the message "The content you requested cannot be displayed right now. It may be temporarily unavailable, the link you clicked on may have expired, or you may not have permission to view this page." This happens every time I open a Facebook or Mafia Wars page in Firefox. I've removed any corrupt cookies, etc., and done all that troubleshooting. I even disabled all my plugins, to no effect. I'm afraid it's some sort of virus.

Continually get unwanted ad popups and unwanted redirected windows. I cannot deal with this. It is very stressful. I will have to try another browser if these problems can't be resolved in Firefox. There are already many users who have posted very detailed problems I am having. There are some help replies with trouble shooting I have followed. Nothing seems to work. I also feel no one cares.

Hello,

I am running FF 29.0.1 and going to ANY page gives me the same error, over and over again.


Tijdstempel: 21-5-2014 01:13:13 Error: localhost:26143 uses an invalid security certificate.

the certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed

(Errorcode: sec_error_ca_cert_invalid)


As for an example, when I go to google.com, this error will showup a couple of thousand times in the FF errorconsole. When I press 1 letter in the google search bar, the error shows up 37 times...

As I am using the error console allot for site debugging, I really have to get ride of these errors that flush away the important ones. My system is running a Apache server, for local developing purposes. However, I have NOT set a certificate, nor am I using port localhost:261432 (or SSL for that matter). CMD->Netstat tells me that programID "4" is listening to that port, which is the "System" (NT Kernel & System). But I assume "System" functions as an internal proxy, so what program really listens to that port, is unclear to me... I have not been able to find any rootkits on my PC and I am not using any proxies. Also, I have not seen any screen asking me to "trust" the certificate, nor have I been able to actually find the un-trusted certificate in FF........ Left of the address bar, FF shows me the correct certificate of the site, in green and does not tell me that it is invalid...

The weird part of this all; the error stops showing up when I enable private mode!

Any help is welcome!
