I recently switched to Firefox from Internet Explorer. Since then, I'm not able to print a selection from a webpage or an email, etc. I followed all of the steps in the tutorial "Fix printing problems in Firefox" but it did not help. I also tried the suggestion to use cntrl-P, but that did not work either. On the print preview window, the selection is grayed out.

What do I need to do to fix this?

Thanks

Mozilla Firefox v. 40 and later, Google, mail.ru, Yandex, Rambler and etc. and ssl v3

In this screen shot shows the settings for SSL v3 browser Firefox v. 40. As you can see it is set to «true», which means using the SSL v3 protocol in the browser. But recently (about six months ago), this protocol was declared as compromised and it was recommended not to use it in applications like cipher RC4. I was carried out a simple experiment, namely, the parameters of «true» were replaced by the option «false», t. E. I have been using this protocol is disabled in the browser Firefox v. 40. And what was my surprise when you try to open the browser's https protocol such well-known sites like Google, mail.ru, Yandex, Rambler and etc. I started to write a browser that can not connect because of the inability to use SSL, word for word: "... does not support the protocol SSL». E. Support any other version of SSL in Firefox does not. Available as options to include other versions of SSL in the browser Firefox v. 40 and now also no later! Previously, the ability to disable SSL v3 protocol present! That such "care" developers "free lunch» Mozilla from the world of Open Source on the safety of users of its browser.

edit: removed your abusive language (& also the section posted in russian, since we can't judge what niceties you have posted there). please refer to the Mozilla Support rules and guidelines! (philipp)

Firefox has been running slow upon opening and slow upon closing .( Hanging; with up to 500k in memory. To close now I must end task via the Task manager. it is so bad I must use "the other guys" browser that begins with "I" and ends with "R" in order to contact you.

The following, are solutions I have tried.

Safe mode disabled add-ons and plugins removed cookies, session, places, SQLite files among others as suggested deleted old profiles; created new profiles re-installed, fresh installs of various versions * after removing all traces of FF on the system run various virus, malware checks *including Microsoft, Malware Bytes, Trend Micro (full system online scan which took hours to complete). replaced the Time Warner Cable Modem Tried with and without add-ons directly connected from the Modem to the Computer bypassing my router. spent hours trouble shooting using various recommendations and suggestions via the internet and this forum to no avail. and have accomplished nothing accept make the situation worse.

its a miracle if I can get FF to start even in safe mode .

I am handicapping you I am sure since I am unable to provide more trouble shooting information. I don't know how to get it from FF into IE. for that I apologize. Currently using

windows 7 home sp1 64-bit I7 3770 16.0 gig RAM

FF Ver. 41.0.2 yes I know it is a tad older but the problems remain regardless of version. 

I am lost, old, and tired after having spent countless hours on this and not being to familiar with Forums, I am begging for help and thanking you in advance for it.

Cheers,

Using Macbook Pro, OS 10.6.8. Yesterday after running a maintenance application I discovered that whenever I try to log in to my Google, including gmail, accounts Firefox crashes. I have the latest version of firefox and have even opened in safe mode. It still crashes. Everything else seems to work OK. I can open bookmarked pages and do google searches.

All of my add-ons are disabled each bootup or wake it from sleep and start of Firefox session. Once I decide an add-on is desired, I want it to default to be enabled rather than disabled on statup. I've done my best to set preferences to allow my add-ons by default, but either I'm ignorant of how to do it, or it is not obvious

Example add-ons: 1Password; Adobe Acrobat Create PDF; Disconnect; NoScript: Open With Photoshop; Privacy Badger; Self-Destructing Cookies

I've been a very satisfied Firefox user for years but since about ver. 41 (i'm on v. 41.0.2 now) Firefox has become too inconvenient

I down loaded the windows 10 upgrade. and had repeated problems including repeated freeze's and "critical errors". So i did a system re-set, removing all drivers but keeping my files. I then down loaded fire fox and thunderbird (due to being VERY dissapointed with microsoft). but i now have "foxstart" on my home page, I am pretty sure i downloaded foxstart with firefox. but i am now struggling to find any referance to it in mozilla. So obviously I dont want something thats not been approved on my home page. T.I.A for any help, advice or assistance.

So last week firefox has started getting progressively slower for me and now it takes a while to open and hangs upon opening new tabs, clicking links, and loading videos. I can usually troubleshoot issues but I've tried so many routes in order to fix this and have yet to see any form of improvement. I've updated all my software and any plugins associated with firefox, tried running firefox in safemode (no improvement), uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, used the refresh feature, and a few other methods but absolutely nothing has changed which leads me to believe something is corrupted or that a program is blocking firefox. On that note, I am using Microsoft security essentials and avast as my antivirus right now and I don't feel as though they are the issue; they don't SEEM to be blocking anything in firefox. I've also gone into my windows firewall and made sure that mozilla wasn't being blocked there. I have done a few virus scans and boot time scans but nothing has come up.

Here are a few side note: I used chrome before this and switched to firefox a couple months ago because I was having this issue in chrome and it slowly got to the point where chrome was unusable. the problems of hanging and slowness only occur once I start using a browser (everything is fast when I'm playing video games or running other software). There was no specific change that I've made to this computer around the time this issue started to occur HOWEVER, chrome started acting funny once I installed a new SSD and migrated data over from my old drive. This wouldn't seem to be an issue because I had deleted every trace of chrome and anything associated with it but upon re-installation the hanging and extreme slowness was still there.

I'm totally out of ideas on this one and it's getting to the point where I can hardly do schoolwork on this PC =[ If anyone has any information on what might be causing this issue or how I could fix these symptoms please help me out. Thank you for your time!

After version of 41.x.x we have notice that Silverlight application get hang and crash very often (few times per day). There is no way to replicate it ... it happened from time to time without any reason visible from our side. Before it worked well. So, users work inside our Silverlight application, and then from time to time browser return crash report (or on some users it just crash). For those which get crash report, looks like uploaded picture.
