Hello, since a day or two (22/nov/2013) youtube is not displayed proprely, in fact the whole page is a real mess and its unusable under firefox. I had to use chrome to watch videos today because of that.

I have the latest flash updates, same goes for firefox.

I made a screenshot of the whole things, but it doesnt seem like I can include it to this post.

This has been going on for a few days now. Every 10 seconds or so the pages freeze, either loading a page or watching videos.

I've tried:

- Turn off hardware acceleration - Reinstalled flash - Reset Firefox - Clear cookies and cache - Restart in safe mode and troubleshoot plugins (Disabled all plugins) - Reinstall Firefox.

After trying all these solutions, problem still persists. I'd really rather not switch to Chrome, so you can someone help me fix this?

I have used Firefox for years, Mozilla before that. Back in the day when you started a download it would pop up a download window that you could move or minimize and then you could close the browser and the download would continue.

Ever since the download manager has come along, this behavior has disappeared and frankly, it's extremely annoying. I don't want downloads to load the download manager need a download manager, I don't need to see a list of every file I've ever downloaded. I don't want the browser to prompt me when I close it if I want to continue downloading. All I need is the nice little progress bar for the download that is currently running and I want to be able to close the browser window without cancelling the download progress, pretty much how it worked in version 1.0 was simple download perfection.

This "classic" interface was simple and useful. Sure download managers have their uses, but we should not be forced to use them. If the manager can't be turned off, does anybody know of a plugin that restores classic style behavior?

I tried reinstalling Firefox and it resolved the issue then shortly afterwards the problem popped up again. Reinstalling a 2nd time didn't fix the problem. Resetting Firefox didn't fix it either.

The Firefox Mozilla Sync server has been down all night. I have tried from numerous computers, devices, and different ip address and locations.

Im unsure what more info I can provide, but I have not seen anything on the internet relating to this new event, so Im unsure when this will be fixed. It has caused tremendous headaches for what I have done sorting some bookmarks, intending on using the sync to update my other device.

I run Win7 64 bit and have been having intermittent problems where FireFox will crash maybe 5 or 6 times a day when I try to open it. Then other times FireFox opens just fine. I have the mini dump file that was generated as well as the the Event Viewer Errors that show up. Hopefully these files will be helpful, but I am not sure how to include them in this question.

Since 25.0.1 upgrade firefox hangs my whole system, inc. the task mgr. I'm running vista, BTW. This hang is so bad, that the task manager freezes also, so I can't even stop the process to restart firefox. As an experiment, I left it in that state last evening, and when I got up in the morning, nothing had changed. My only option was to hard power cycle the computer. This is happening about a dozen times a day - pretty much every time I try to use my computer for more than about 20 minutes.

When this happens, I can move my cursor, but can't click on anything, even other applications such as MSWord. NOTHING responds at that point. Again, the only option is to hard power cycle my computer.

How can I go back to version 24 or so? Or is my only option to switch to a different browser?

I have Firefox 25 beta and am on the beta channel & want to uninstall and install the latest version of non-beta Firefox. I need to know what the latest non-beta version of Firefox is and where I can find this version. When I uninstall the beta version I assume all I need to do is to go to control panel and uninstall Firefox. I will save my bookmarks. Should I also save my profile and restore it to the non-beta version? Thanks for any help. JD

I have come across pages from time to time that try to prevent me from closing them by continuously opening dialog boxes. Generally these come up as pop-ups or hidden redirects from other pages, rather than from a site that I actually intended to visit. The only fix that currently works is to drag the offending tab into it's own window and ignore it. This allows me to continue browsing, but the only way to get rid of it is to force quit Firefox.

When I did a web search for a way to prevent any further dialogs from opening from a given page all I could find were repeated requests to get rid of the feature and no way to get it back now that it's gone.

My suggestion would be to make an option available, if it does not already exist and easily accessible to force close a tab. This action should kill any scripts that it might be running and close it with out permitting any dialog boxes, pop-up windows or any other action. Placing it in the right click menu alongside "close tab" would be ideal, though if this is considered dangerous in the hands of the average user then create it and use a preferences bit to enable it so advanced users can enable it themselves.
