Since upgrading to 6.0, some sites can't be read at all. Instead of regular fonts, there are symbol fonts. Below is only one example. It doesn't happen on every site, only some. I've tried everything on the support page for "web pages not loading properly" (or whatever it's called). Could it be a plug-in problem?

I use Firefox on a Mac (Snow Leopard) and I recently updated Firefox to version 18.0. After I updated, Firefox will freeze everytime I go on Facebook and I would have to force quit it. One thing I noticed is that it crashes when almost everything is loaded but the chat. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Dear Everyone:

I use Firefox (V11.0) on a Mac OS X (V10.6.8). I have a persistent problem with Youtube. When I view a video, I may get the message: "An error occurred. Please try again later".

The frequency of this problem varies from day to day. Sometimes, it happens to almost every video, and sometimes, it rarely happens; sometimes, "reloading" it once or twice, the video begins to play, and sometimes, it never plays no matter how many times I reload it.

I also have Safari (V5.1.4) on my machine, and it does not have the above problem.

Could you let me know how to resolve the problem with Firefox?

Thank you! qquito

I am using Firefox 13.01 on a Mac os an I am using electronic box a Canadian ISP. I receive the message when i go to https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=electronicbox and a few others

"you have requested an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information. Information that you see or enter on this page could easily be read by a third party."

The message clearly states that infomraiton can be read or enter can be read by a third party. I would like to know why "youtube" which has https, or SSL service which I am using still displays that message?

Firefox 4 on mac 'snow leopard' (10.6.7) won't open new windows - only tabs

I upgraded a couple days ago, and just noticed that I cannot open a 'new' window, only tabs in the original window that opens when I initially click the FF icon. I've tried both command-N and clicking file/new window from the menu. If I right-click a tab and select 'move to new window' the tab just goes away - no new window appears. New tabs open without an issue. I've rebooted, but it doesn't help.

I'm running macbook pro 13", 8g ram/1t drive - shouldn't be resource starved. Doesn't appear to matter what else (if anything) is running. The only plug-in I've installed is Adblock.

My previous installation (3.something - was current) 'lost' all my plugins somehow - they showed in the list, but wouldn't run; I removed them all but it wouldn't let me re-install any (I forget the error). That seemed to all get fixed when I upgraded to 4; adblock installed and runs like normal. Not sure if there is any relation, but thought I'd mention it.

Thoughts?

Since updating to Adobe Reader 10.1.3, I noticed Firefox 11 does not display PDF files. It just shows a blank screen.

The only workaround I found is disabling the Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in (ver. 10.1.3) the update installs. Firefox will prompt which application to use.Choosing Preview allows the PDFs to display correctly.

Neither Chrome or Safari exhibit this behavior, nor does Firefox 11 (Windows) with the update installed.

Has anyone else experienced this?

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.

I have been having trouble with some orders I have made online. The webmaster from one online store told me I should be regularly deleting the temporary Internet/cache files. Is this accurate? I know when I do this with Safari, some banking websites want me to enter my passwords again because they say I am using a compute that has not visited this website before. As far as my problem with ordering items online and having problems with the store getting my order, I was told by the webmaster that any good computer practice includes regularly deleting the temporary Internet/cache files. How do I do this on Firefox? I am new to using Firefox. Thanks!

- FireFox often does not list attachments properly if at all thus cannot be downloaded. This problem does not exist when using Safari or the Windows Firefox. Yahoo Inbox shows that the email has an attachment, but when the email is opened,

- The listing of emails in the 'Inbox' does not have either a page number or scroll bar. This problem does not exist with Safari or the Windows FireFox (accessed via Windows via Parallels.)

- Sometimes the 'Inbox' mail items do not display at all despite clicking on the icon. This sometimes happens with the other folder icons such as Sent. Logging out & back in seems to fix it.

- Sometimes I log into Yahoo Mail & all my custom folders are missing. Again, this problem only occurs with the OSX FireFox version. Unless I click on Folders. But this is a little inconvenient as I have some mail deliberately sent to specific custom folders & will not know if there is any new mail in such folders unless I click on folders. Folders should show below the inbox, be open & not cover over the inbox icon.

I updated FireFox a month ago which temporarily fixed these problems but the problems have been back for the past couple of weeks.

I can no longer save tabs when I go to exit firefox. For some reason I can't restore previous session from the history menu and there is no restore session button on the default home page. I've also gone to about:config and made sure that 'browser.tabs.warnOnClose', 'browser.warnOnQuit', and 'browser.warnOnRestart' were set to true but nothing is working. I still only get the warning that I'm about to close tabs, but not the option to save them or not.

And I don't want to change the default settings to show previous tabs and windows on start up because I like firefox starting up on the default page, unless I needed to save tabs. Anyways, when I tried that option last it didn't seem to work.

I'm using firefox 4 on a macbook.

When I click on a video, I don't get a message such as missing plug-in or anything. I just get a page with a blank space where the video should be.
