Just started with this problem, when I open a new window which is my preference rather than Tabs I find that whereas it used to open the new window and that was active, it is now opening a new window and then reverting to the original one.

Any ideas?

Had Adobe Flash Player 11.3 r300 and it stopped showing videos, etc. in Firefox a few days ago. Now I've installed v 11.4 r402 and it still gives error message "Adobe Flash Player ... has stopped working." I uninstalled, downloaded again and reinstalled -- with the same result. No videos. Firefox Plugin check page shows it installed correctly. Any solutions?

I first noticed this problem yesterday when trying to copy/paste into Word 2003. I disabled all Add-ons, restarted FF, problem solved. I enabled all Add-ons, restarted FF and problem went away. Today it is back but not only a problem with Word but Windows Live Mail too. I see others have this problem so it seems to be a FF problem and not just mine. I'm running FF 15.0.1.

My OS is Windows 7 Pro 64 bit; using Firefox ver 15.0. I downloaded Babylon tool bar and related apps because they were associated with a tool manual that I wanted to review. I then discovered how invasive these apps are. Successfully removed Babylon downloader and Tool bar via Start | Control Panel | program menu. However I notice that "Search the web (Babylon)" is still listed in the drop down menu of search engine options. I have defaulted my search engine to Google, and I can delete the Babylon option, but it returns every time when I close my browser and then return to my FF Mozilla home page. How can I permanently remove Babylon as a search engine option?

I recently updated to Firefox 15.0.1, and I'm having a lot of trouble with it constantly freezing. This doesn't happen on any one website and is very random in occurrence. I have already tried running in safe mode and updated flash, and I'm still having the problem. After a few seconds, it may start responding again however, most of the time it continues to hang. In order to close Firefox when this happens, I have to open task manager and end the process because nothing in the browser responds. This has become very annoying, and I would appreciate any help I can get to solve the issue. Thanks!

UPDATE: I've noticed that the freezing seems to happen every time I check my email (Yahoo & Gmail), and when I'm on Pandora. It still occurs randomly at other times, but I noticed it's very consistent with these sites.

Firefox 15 randomly crashes on exit after having viewed pages containing Flash content (Flash 11.4)

It seems that since the automatic update from Firefox 14.0.1 to Firefox 15.0, the browser works normally when viewing pages containing Adobe Flash elements, but crashes when I close the Firefox window. Apparently the browser exits normally but one or two seconds later, Windows reports that Firefox has stopped working and the crash details indicate there was a problem with xul.dll.

This happens randomly, not systematically. But in all cases, it was after some Flash content was loaded. It never happened with Firefox 14 nor any previous versions, and Flash 11.4 was installed before the automatic Firefox update.

Using Firefox 15.0, Flash 11.4.402.265 on Windows 7 SP1 64 bits.

$("#dealer-warranty-parts-percent").bind('change', function(){ data.partsPercent = $(this).val(); AMMS.dealerWarrantyModified = 1; });

This code will not fire in the latest (FF 15) version of FF but does fire in the previous version. I am now having to switch to blur event.

I cannot seem to see certain websites "full" site. On Ebay...I only see text all piled up on left. If I click thru enough I can see an image but I want the full site. Not the second class citizen version. Also same with Netflix. Amazon is great. I've troubleshooted and cleared cookies and cache. I reset and now I'm using safe mode with add ons disabled but still nothing helps.

BTW...I'm very untechnical. Im using a laptop with Windows Vista OS if that helps.

Id also like to be able to use my amazon prime account to stream videos but naturally nothing shows up.

Please help. SOS.  : )

It acts like popups are being blocked but there is no menu bar to over ride that operation.

Firefox crashes CONSTANTLY. It is non-discriminatory as to when, where, what or why I'm doing anything. No one web page has done it. I have always submitted results and asked to be notified and have heard bupkiss... I would attache my last crash data, except you guys have 30 crash dumps already. I've tried disabling all addons (Ghostery, ABP and Flash) to no avail. I'm currently running unsynced from my other devices to see if that makes a difference.

I switched because I was tired of IEs pop up and crap, but now I think IE is a Godsend. If you guys can't get this fixed, I'll move on to Chrome!

The damn thing JUST crashed AGAIN trying to Copy and Paste the Help>Troubleshooting info... I'm done.

I updated my Firefox to 15.0.1 which I did not want to do, but it kept harassing me to do it and now the pages take forever to load. Anytime I go to my Earthlink email, it just loads and loads until it hit the stop "x" and then sometimes it will load. I did not change anything on my computer. All I did was update the browser. When I load the exact same pages in Safari, they load right away. I have tried looking online and found that many users have the same issue. I tried many of their suggestions and nothing worked. I use an iMac 10.6.8.
