How to prevent the "are you sure you want to leave this page?" prompt on Facebook?

I'm using Firefox 35.0.1. If I make a post on my Facebook timeline that contains a link, when I hit "Post" and the page goes to refresh to add my post to my timeline, it asks if I'm sure I want to leave the page. I've seen that messages on some sites before, for example, if I'm on a forum and I write a post and go to leave the page before hitting submit, it'll ask me that, but I've never seen it on Facebook until a couple of days ago.

Is there any way to turn this message off? Or even better, can it be turned off just on Facebook? Thanks.

Normally I just use control+F to open the bar to search the page. However recently Firefox has been opening this quick find bar whenever I tap any letter. It's not too much of a big deal, but in instances where I want to go to Google and type in as soon as the page is loaded (like I used to be able to do) instead of clicking on the search bar, it can get annoying. Normally the search bar or whatever is selected automatically and you can type right away, and it still is, but unless you actually click on it again it isn't ACTUALLY selected; typing will just open up quick find.

Any way to get rid of this?

Firefox 35.0.1 Under certain circumstances Firefox starts using excessive CPU time. It seems to happen when trying to do too many things at once. But, once in this condition exiting all functions (closing all tabs) except my homepage Firefox still is stuck using 50% CPU and over 200,000k memory. The only way to get out of this is to close Firefox and restart it.

After much experimenting I found that disabling (extension) McAfee SiteAdvisor "cured" the problem. Is there a know incompatibility here? Is there a fix, other than disabling SiteAdvisor?

How do I report this to mozilla developers?

  • Summary

Firefox aborts its http request within almost 60 seconds(period till timeout varies) and tells nothing to users. This happened with both of Nginx and Apache.

  • Environment

Client browser: Firefox 35.0.1 Client OS: Windows 7 Enterprise 32bit SP1 Web Server: Apache 2.2.3-91 & Nginx 1.6.2-1 Server OS: CentOS 5.11 PHP: 5.3.3 FastCGI: spawn-fcgi-1.6.3-1

  • Description of the issue

I have noticed that nginx logs http response code 499 so often.

We use nginx almost only for two web applications, the one based on PHP and others on ruby. We experiences this problem in both apps. The server and client PC belong to the same subnet.

Since last month, nginx logged 624 errors for Firefox and 16 for other browsers(almost IE).

So for test, I wrote the simple PHP (see the bottom of this article) and tried to access it through both of Apache & Nginx with Firefox 35.0.1 and IE 11. IE11 waited 120 seconds and returned html successfully through both of nginx and Apache, but Firefox failed either.

Let me describe Firefox's behaviour.

1. Enter the test php url at location bar and press enter. 2. The message 'waiting server response' appears at status bar for a while. 3. Watching network conversation through Wireshark, 'Keep Alive' signals are repeated some times between server and client, and after that, 4. The message dissappears. 'FIN' signal is sent to the server from the client just after that. Firebug logs 'Aborted' at the almost the same time. 5. The server responses 'FIN ACK.'

There is a bit difference with nginx and Apache in behaviour after 'FIN ACK'.

A.Nginx

Nginx logs '499' error and finish conversation immediately.

B.Apache doesn't log anthying at this step. After 120 seconds(sleep timer in PHP) from request it returns expected html. Of course Firefox don't render it but I could confirm both of request and response from Wireshark's 'Follow TCP Stream' function. Finally it is logged with http status code 200 at httpd log file.

I repeated this test several times. Actual timeout period varies from 22 to 70 seconds but results are same.

With my understanding, the browser is expected to show 'time out error' after such situation but it doesn't show anything. So end user can't know what happend.

---

  • What I tried to solve the problem
  • disabled all extentions other than firebug.
  • set 'network.tcp.keepalive.enabled' to false at about:config.
  • set 'network.http.spdy.enabled' to false, too.
  • set 'network.http.response.timeout' to 0.
  • disabled IPV6 and DNS prefetch seeing the following help.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-dont-load-troubleshoot-and-fix-errors

  • changed Timeout to 0 at apche's http.conf.

My purpose is make our web apps to work properly in our working environment. I've recommended Firefox to our collegues because it was very cool application. Changing the default brawser is nightmare to me. Any suggestions are welcome.

Hi dear support,

I couldn't solve my problem even I tried lots of tipps and settings for allowing the cookies for google... Its a very tough issue.. I am using No Script and Adblock, but I hope they are not the issue.. I also found out, that whatever changes I make to FF cookies, like accepting third party cookies and adding exceptions, after a FF restart everything is by the old: 3rd party cookies are disabled and the entries are removed... Even if making the changes and loading the page without restart - the page in the attached screenshot appears.

Please help me with this issue...

10x u a lot and be blessed for ur work!!!!

I often have multiple internet windows open (often each window will have multiple tabs). I would like to be able to exit all the windows with just a single close of firefox. Currently, I can close each window that has multiple tabs with a single close. I would like to extend this to multiple windows (each with multiple tabs). In Explorer, I just right click on its icon and one of the options is to "close all windows" and that's it. I would like to see that option available on firefox. Thanks

I've tried some possible solutions here in the support but it keeps happening.

It doesn't happen with others browser, such as Chrome.
