I am working from a brand new instal of Windows; also new video card, processor, hard drive. Last night Firefox was crashing every five minutes. It crashed once before I put on my addons, and multiple times after (somewhere around 30 times). I tried rolling back to an older version of Firefox and that crashed as well. It will either crash on startup, or it will open my tabs and then shut down.

Here is the information that might be helpful: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-864db5b8-b866-4d20-9f60-913862150406

I ran Firefox reset to get rid of my add-ons, but they were: Extensions: Adblock plus 2.6.9, Amazon Smile 1button for Firefox, Norton Toolbar 2014.7.12.7, reddit enhancement suite 4.5.4, abd speed dial [fvd] 6.6.7.

Theme: Fractal Frost

Plugins: OpenH264 Video by Cisco 1.3 (always activate); Shockwave flash 13.0.0.277 (always); NVIDIA 3d vision 7.17.13.4788 (ask to activate) - 2 of these, one Vision and one Vision Streaming; and WildTangent Games (never activate/disabled).

It has crashed at least 3 times since I reset Firefox.

In Yahoo mail premium-add free I can no longer access or close tabs. Messages open in tabs, tabs persist but I need to exit mail to close them. I can get back to In box and other categories but not the tabs. I figured it was Yahoo until I noticed the functions work with Chrome. Note: The free yahoo does not have multiple tabs and appears to be working normally. Regards

When I go to "Tools" / "Plug-Ins" and click on "Check To see If Plugins Are Up To Date" it goes to Mozilla Check Your Plugin Page, but fails to show plugins or checked plugins update status. ( https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_campaign=plugincheck-update ) I am using OS X 10.10.3 / Firefox 37.0.1 / March-14-2015

Tried, re-installing over original, clearing cookies, clearing cache and starting in Safe Mode to no avail. Another ridiculous oversight and there's never any support for when things do go awry. Unfortunately, I have received no professional concern, with a competent cause and cure. none. And I have had and reported this problem since Firefox 35.0.

Need info and a fix, for Months Now! Thanks! Whitebuck

Hello!

I'm testing a security flag in Firefox's config that will let my ignore HSTS certificate settings, but it doesn't actually seem to do that. I've triggered a certificate error from facebook.com, and attempted to set security.cert_pinning.enforcement_level to 0 as shown in the image to ignore the warning, but it won't anyway. I know that facebook.com is a protected domain (https://code.google.com/p/chromium/codesearch#chromium/src/net/http/transport_security_state_static.json), but I was hoping that the config change would override the cooked in protection. Can anyone confirm that the list can't be bypassed?

Hi. Trying to upload multiple items pdfs to merge here: http://foxyutils.com/mergepdf/ Should work 'normally' - control click to select multiple. I've used the site previously, but today got a fresh user account as the last one was setup incorrectly (but I had FF and this worked AFAIK).

FF 37.0.1 on Win7 enterprise, ghostery & adblockplus turned off, java temporarily set to "always allow", java dev set to "ask" (can't change).

Any thoughts anyone? Seems very strange. Not sure if it's a Windows problem; I can select multiple items with control+click in windows explorer...

Whenever a dialogue box or prompt box comes up, the all of the buttons or sometimes just the bottom two (OK and cancel) are blank and nothing happens when I click on them, with the exception of one website in which clicking the blank button that normally says "OK" takes me to a blank screen. This doesn't allow me to access certain websites or download anything when a dialogue box asks me to confirm. As a result, I also cannot start firefox in safe mode or refresh it.

Attached is an example. That is what came up when I tried to refresh firefox. Nothing happens when I click either of the buttons at the bottom.

EDIT: Attached the image.

Ever since a recent update Firefox has displayed some odd behaviour surrounding gifs. Occasionally, after viewing pages with large numbers of gifs and/or several very large gifs, Firefox will do things like not animate gifs, or even not load images at all,a and won't stop until I restart Firefox. What is more concerning is that sometimes in these situations Firefox will simply hang and stop responding, forcing me to kill the process. This page shows the hanging behaviour pretty consistently: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1021843&page=21 It seems more likely to happen when I scroll through the page quickly. The behaviour persists when I restart Firefox in Safe Mode.

Here is the list of problems with firefox claimed by a web designer. I just thought you should know about this.

A lot of people have the same issue. See below. If you can get a solution from Firefox, let me know. Seems the best solution is related to a corruption of the Firefox “mimeTypes.rdf” file located in “C:\Users\YourAccountName\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ffg#####.default”and the solution is to delete it , so it writes a new one.
