So my adobe flash plugin apparently keeps crashing and this has been going on for awhile now. When I watch videos on youtube, the audio will stutter. Sometimes the video will crash too and whenever I watch a video on teennick.com, the video is constantly freezing and/or crashing. I've tried using the 'safe mode" version of firefox and the problem still happens. This is so frustrating, someone please help.

Only the upper left quadrant of the Flash Player screen has content. The rest of the screen is either blank or the original static image. This occurs on YouTube and any website that has Flash Player content. Computer is a Macbook Pro Retina using OSX 10.8.4. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Flash Player (twice) and uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. The problem doesn't occur when I'm using Safari.

There's a single tab and a plus sign next to it in 23. I thought we had the ability to turn that off.

While I'm here, I'll also say that for a while now it's been weird, opening a new window flashes open for a moment and then flips back to my original window. It makes multi window browsing difficult, sometimes.

Before you ask, no, I never use tabs. I detest tabs.

When viewing a user's photos on instagram.com/user, I click on one photo and it opens in a new tab (as opposed to popping up in the same tab in middle of the screen). Then, when I 'X' out the new tab and return to the old one with the rest of the photos, I cannot click on anymore. I have to refresh the page each time I want to view a new photo. This does NOT occur when I view the instagram.com/user page using Internet Explorer. Shockwave Flash and all other plug-ins are up to date. I just noticed this issue with Firefox's newest upgrade.

I had no issues at all with Firefox 22, but since upgrading to Firefox 23, my browser is becoming unusable. The biggest issue right now is that Firefox 23 crashes excessively when browsing Facebook. Sometimes I can't even fully load the Facebook page without it crashing, but I can almost always make it crash by just scrolling up and down and forcing it to load new content a few times. This happens even in safe mode, and even after following the instructions to reset my preferences.

Sometimes Google searches also crash within seconds of submitting the search, Firefox crashed 3 times in a row while I tried to search for "Chrome" to install it so I'd be able to look at Facebook. It's more inconsistent with Google searches though, where Facebook is just so completely unstable as to be utterly unusable.

I run windows XP i love it and im not looking to change. Up until the last "update" my Firefox worked fine no issues and rarely ever crashed. Since the update all Firefox seems to do is freeze and crash? not sure why nothing is different other than the update that was an automatic one. I have run malwarebytes scan i have done a deep scan with Kaspersky and also run tune up utilities just in case nothing was found i have no virus but what i do have is a non functioning Firefox. if i walk away from my computer for more then 10 minutes it freezes up i cant even minimize it and then it crashes.

I have looked through your forum i have inspected my plugins ( i dont have many ) nothing wrong there

Im not very tech savvy so please no long explanations with 300 steps because i wont understand it. i just want to be able to enjoy my Firefox again without it crashing multiple times a day.

Any help is much appreciated

The windows of the Windows bar are already a form of tabs, so I don't need them in Firefox. How can I disable them completely from Firefox 23?

RE: TABS ARE WINDOWS! The Windows bar already functions as a tab bar. Those tabs are called "windows." So, I find Firefox tab windows superfluous. How can I disable them completely from Firefox 23? I don't need what is essentially TWO windows bars covering up the entire width of my widescreen monitor's image! I already have a Windows bar at the bottom of my screen and, if I really wanted to, I could change ITS position to the top of the screen, so that it would LOOK like the Firefox tab windows bar. Firefox TABS are, essentially, a superfluous SECOND WINDOWS BAR.

Here are my reasons for why I'd rather use Mozilla's Firefox, than Microsoft's Internet Explorer or Google's Chrome. I love and admire Firefox for Mozilla's intent on good security, for Firefox's Personas add-on, and for Firefox's free use of the Ad-Block add-on which, as you know, has the distinct virtue of reducing screen clutter--the last of which is my motive for wanting to get rid of the SUPERFLUOUS Firefox tabs "windows" bar. I am dreadfully sick of companies forcing miscellaneous bars (mostly representing marketing campaigns trying to sell me something) into my browser (and down my throat) every time I download something. (In case you haven't guessed, I am deliberately referring to your Firefox tabs bar as a "Firefox tabs 'windows' bar," because TABS are WINDOWS!)

Firefox Version 23.0 Mac 10.8.4

With version 23 of Firefox the preference "Load Images Automatically" under the content tab is GONE. The only options that remain are Block Pop Up Windows, Fonts & Colors, and Languages.

I use this preference EXTENSIVELY and I have searched every corner of the preference panel in case it was moved and I cannot find it anywhere. Please do not tell me you got rid of this function.

All of a sudden Flash slideshows I have installed are getting an "unresponsive script" error when you click on any of the hyperlinked slideshow images. After clicking on the image, it takes a long time for the page to change, then the "unresponsive script" warning window pops up identifying this page as the culprit with a :16 at the end.

Example: http://accessretirement.com/new

The slideshow itself works fine, it is the hyperlink that is a problem. I didn't change the script. This happens in Safe Mode as well. Also happens on Windows laptop. Does not happen in Safari. Clients are screaming, have tried asking this question before but didn't get an answer. Appreciate any thoughts.

Right now, I'm using Fedora 19 with Xfce 4.10 and Firefox 23 on my laptop. When I download a file and look at the dowload window, it has a sidebar that I have no use for. I know it's possible to get rid of it because it wasn't there before I upgraded from Fedora 17, and it's not there on my desktop, which still has Firefox 22. There isn't an X to close it, there's nothing about it in Preferences and if there's something in about:config, I haven't located it.

We have a product that uses a java applet to run it. Until Firefox 22 (and for all previous versions), we could depend on the Firefox to work with our product, even when no other browser would. We need to be able to remove FF 23 and re-install FF 22. I've tried all the recommendations to fix the problem, but nothing works. Our Apple customers are the ones who are most affected because neither Safari 6, Chrome nor Firefox will run our product. Our PC customers can run IE.

How do I download Firefox 22? I have a saved copy of the FF 21 installer for PC but not for Mac.

I know that this goes against Firefox advice, but I'm instructing my company and my customers to turn off automatic updates for Firefox until such time that we can use future versions.

I just updated to 23.0, and for some reason changing the search engine in the search box also changes the default search engine in the URL bar as well. I'm not sure if this is intended functionality (I hope it isn't), but it is kind of irritating. I wasn't sure if it was related to an addon I installed around the same time, so I tried disabling that, but the problem was still there; therefore, I'm tentatively assuming it has to do with 23.0.

Hi guys,

Since last Mozilla update to version 23.0 my check-spelling isn't working anymore. I seem to be miss-writing every word, as all of them are being underlined.

How do I solve this problem? I do not want to change to another crappy browser just because I can't use a check-spelling add-on...

Just as a side note, this whole thing was working on version 22, and I don't quite understand why it isn't now. I just want to see this fixed, please help? Thanks in advance.

A new version of Conduit has hijacked my FireFox browser, among other things. Every time I open a new tab it comes up in the conduit search engine rather than my default of Google. Any mistyping of a url sends me to bing via conduit. I used to be able to get into about:config and fix such problems, but now any attempt to do that simply sends me to bing. This is a horrible mess, and keeps happening, and FF users need a way to block these conduit takeovers.
