On average, every 30 minutes or so when I open a new tab or refresh a current tab, the page is completely distorted, links or text missing, and other various caching issues. WHy does this happen so often? It is very annoying that I have to manually clear my cache every 30 minutes.... if I get up to eat dinner or watch a show or any other number of things... when I return my browser does not cache pages properly and I have to manually clear it every time.

This happened to me in the past and eventually went away... but after I upgraded the browser, it began doing this again. I am having to resort to using Internet Explorer against my wishes just so that I am not annoyed by this. How can this be fixed for good?

Goal - use remote desktop via citrix website; Did work in FF in July; now (Aug) it doesn't

Problem: Application frame with link to RDP is blank

I log into website OK - three frames should be present: 1) fileshare - I don't use this & it appears to load OK; 2) websites - I don't use this & it appears to load OK ; and 3) Applications - This frame is blank but it should load a collection of links including a link to remote desktop

Behavior: If I have just cleared the history then the application frame will "clock" (this is normal) but instead of showing the links a blank frame appears; If I have NOT just cleared the history, the application frame shows the "clock" but it is frozen; slightly different but still results in blank application frame.

I have tried: 1. clear history before logging in (change in "clocking" but still results in blank application frame 2. IPV6- disable by set to true; No impact on problem; toggle back to false 3. network DNS disable prefetch; disable by set to true  ; no impact on problem; toggle back to false 4. preference named plugins.load_appdir_plugins; change its value to true; no impact - set back to false

One significant change I have made "around" the time of the problem is I uninstalled norton that came preinstalled, installed adaware, and removed/ disabled the adaware browser toobar ;

I will appreciate any suggestions from the community.

Ever since I installed Firefox 23.0.1, I have had many problems. Firefox is very slow to open and crashes several times a day, especially if I'm on Facebook. The internet, especially Facebook & Facebook games are very slow. When Facebook updates, it is so slow that it hangs up my entire system.

My router and cable modem are working correctly. I recently installed new ethernet cables between the cable modem, router and computer. Brighthouse was here last week and I have a strong internet signal. All of my plug ins are up to date and so is Windows XP. I have cleaned my browser's cache several times. Closing and restarting Firefox helps for a little while.

When I open a new tab, instead of my home page (google.com) I get a bing search page. I do not get the "top sites" as I do on my other computers. I have checked them to see if I could mimic, but no luck. In the article about removing unwanted pages, the article shows a screen shot of a button in the shape of a square with little dots making the square shape. The article says to click that button and then reset my tab. My new tab pages do not have that button. It shows the down arrow for downloads and the home button for home page. I've looked in the add-on manager and the bing toolbar is not there. I've also gone through the Tools/Options and can find nothing there to get rid of the bing toolbar. My homepage is set to google.com in the options. Also followed the steps for about:config and after making the change, new tabs still come up with bing (and its ads). What do I do to get my home page to display? Thanks

The above. When I opened a new tab in the past, before the new update, firefox would automatically highlight the text in the address bar, and I could simply start typing from there the address of the site I wanted. I could quickly get to anywhere I wanted in less than a second. Now, I have to drag and click into the address bar every time. I installed an add-on called "custom newtab" but it just slows me down further due to a lag between the opening of a new tab, and the add-on kicking in and highlighting the address bar content. What happens is this: Click "new tab" New tab opens blank and the text appears highlighted "google.co.uk" for about a quarter second. Page loads Google and the highlighted text becomes unhighlighted for another quarter second. Add-on kicks in and highlights the text "google.co.uk" meanwhile I've already begun typing and end up losing the first part of the words, sending me to random web pages and searches.

Why did this change?! Fix it please!

Unable to completely download the firefox upgrade. For whatever reason it is not automatically updating it. I forced it this time and at the very end the progress wheel just spins and spins. (Happens on other web pages as well, specifically yahoo mail.) I am at 15.8 of 15.9 MB. I have Windows 7 on dial-up so obviously extremely slow download. I never use IE browser. I am unable to paste the screen cap of the dialogue box into this message showing the hang @ 15.8.

Thank you in advance for any help.

I am currently running 23.0.1 I have not had this problem until i updated to this new version.

How does it take a user like myself (been using ff for 7 or more years) 4 different pages to actually get to one to ask a question? Seriously, IE has better access to the support forums. Now on to my actual problem. I have a lot of bogging/crashing related to flash player 11, as well as even the most current version of flash (and yes I have uninstalled all older versions) reading as an outdated version. Is there no way to get ff to actually work concurrent to flash or am I just fated to run chrome instead? Wouldn't believe a hardware issue since it's just ff (even IE runs better at this point) but Acer Aspire 7741z with W7 (and yes I know it's an outdated system but specs are still up to current),

The new tab button disappeared from my navigation menu. No changes or upgrades had been made. Whereas all the support topics suggest going to Customize Toolbar, the new tab button no longer exists there either. It was there in the morning, gone in the evening for no apparent reason. The + does exist at the end of series of tabs, but not in the navigation toolbar, and the add tab + does NOT exist anywhere on a page there there is only one tab. I do have HIDE TAB BAR WITH ONE TAB 1.1 but have had it for weeks and the new tab button was always there. How can I restore the New Tab button to the Navigation bar if it is not available in the Customize Toolbar selection?

I am running an older machine, but with a fresh install of Windows 7. Until the latest update, I had no issues with the versions of Firefox since my last OS install. Now when I am in the latest Firefox 23.0.1, I get occasional freezing that will lock the entire machine and need a hard restart. I am still diagnosing, but to date the only constant I know is Firefox. I have not experienced the same freezes using IE.

Occasionally I will think the freeze is happening when I lose both keyboard and mouse control during a Firefox session, but after 1 to 2 seconds, they both return. Typically though, it just freezes. Most times it occurs while I am away from the keyboard getting coffee or something. It is so transparent, the only thing that tells me the freeze occurred (other than loss of mouse and keyboard) is the system time still being several minutes ago.

I have seen the other forum message regarding Firefox 21 and Firefox 22, but I figured I ask in a new message regarding Firefox 23.

I have done the reset to Firefox as of last night. I reloaded Ghostery as my only Add-On, which was the only Add-On running during earlier versions of Firefox. Already this morning I have had the 1 to 2 second pause, but no freezing yet. (Now Troubleshooter has been added due to this message.)
