Since the last couple of updates, Firefox has begun to restore minimized windows to a smaller size every time it is restored.

Example (sizes are ballpark, not exact): Window is 1200x800. Minimize and restore. Now it is 1000x650. Minimize and restore. Now it is 800x400. Minimize and restore. Now it is 600x300. And so on, all the way down to nothing.

I have two windows (both with this behavior), one on each monitor. I run Windows 8.1 and Firefox 48. Same behavior in safe mode so not addon-related.

It would be so helpful if we could create an account to reply to existing threads rather than starting up a new one, but since we can't, I guess I'll have to use this method.

The firefox "urgent update" malware is definitely alive and well. Another company's website where this is being delivered up as a paid advertisement, and the one that I always get redirected to it from, is http://fiostrending.verizon.com/news/

These companies really need to choose a better source for their advertisements, if they insist on forcing them on their customers, if their sites are being hijacked by this malware!

Interestingly enough, the hit-and-run website that I'm being redirected to NEVER shows up in my browsing history.

Sync in Firefox on Mac OSX stops Firefox for 20 seconds

Hallo I use Firefox 48.0.1 on a MacBook with OS 10.11.6

Since some versions of Firefox, I don't know exactly since when, each time, I open the bookmark library or even if I set or change an existing bookmark, Firefox stops, the spinning wheel is visible and after about 20 seconds Firefox continues to be usable. This issue continues each time I do something with my bookmarks. I found that it is related to Firefox Sync. If I disable Sync, no problems at all. How can I fix this? Firefox is nearly unusable like this, because I depend strongly on the bookmarks. I have around 4000 Bookmarks. I already exported them, deleted all and imported again, no change. On my PC (Windows 8.1 - 64 Bit) I have not at all this problem.

Thanks

frank

PS.: I had to use a Proxy Server from US to get to this support page. I am in germany and there is no real german support page. Only a link to a user forum, where nobody can help if there are real bugs in Firefox like this, e.g. Is there another, maybe easier way, to get to this very support page than to cheat with proxy? Thanks

The past few days I have not been getting the official site label when searching with DuckDuckGo. Somehow it is not showing this or it is not checking the security certificates.

Additionally, for a few weeks, I keep getting a popup that wants me to: "Use DuckDuckGo as your primary search engine". DuckDuckGo has already been selected as my ONLY search engine.

For a while I've used the Firefox add-on "DuckDuckGo Plus", but I removed it and still have this problem.

I've read comments on the web that some people think this is a virus. So how do I find out if my version of DuckDuckGo is the real one and it hasn't been hacked?

I tried to add an image for this question, but it didn't work.

Additionally, I noticed in the details covering installed plugins, it states that I have installed Adobe Acrobat Plug-in for Web Browsers, Version 15.009.20077. I deleted everything from Adobe or so I thought. I no longer allow anything from Adobe on my computer. Is this part of Firefox 48.0.2 for Mac? And I don't have iPhoto6 installed.

Installed Plugins:

  • Adobe® Acrobat® Plug-in for Web Browsers, Version 15.009.20077
  • Provides information about the default web browser
  • Displays Java applet content, or a placeholder if Java is not installed.
  • NASA's Eyes Visualization
  • Microsoft Office for Mac SharePoint Browser Plug-in
  • iPhoto6

Short version: I'm getting a Bad Pool Header intermittently when FireFox is running

Long version: This computer also has Google Chrome on it and I'll also get a bad pool hear in Chrome. I did some digging and found out this is a common problem that is caused by USB driver issues so I updated the USB drivers but that didn't solve it. I thought switching browsers would help but It didn't. I do have dump files. This is a Windows 7 -64 bit machine.

Hi all. Trying to transfer bookmarks from FF 48.0.1 to Safari 9.1.2 -so as to be able to sync with iPad Safari. I've always done this by means of the direct import option from Firefox in Safari but this has stopped working. Nothing happens, not even an error message. Not 100% sure, but I think this started happening after upgrading to FF 48.0.1. No recent Safari upgrades. Thanks for your help.

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 48.0 on a WIN Vista PC & when looking at ads. (on Craigslist for example) QR codes (i.e. the actual squares) posted on the ads. do not appear on the page. However, if I look at the same page with IE 9, the squares are visible.

Why is this?

I have just installed the extension called "QR Secret Decoder Ring" (v. 0.7.0) thinking it might help but it's made no difference, as there is no "QR code square" shown to decode!! If the code squares are visible, I am assuming the above mentioned extension will show me what the code says. Is that correct?

A solution would be greatly appreciated, as I have already spent several hours trying to solve the problem.

Thank you.

Almost every time I am on Facebook and click on Farmville to play that game, the first time I click on to go to my farm, I've been getting the "official-looking" red firefox screen and logo pop up with a gray colored pop up box that says it's an urgent firefox update. I've never clicked on the save button, I alwasy click cancel, close the pop up box, go back to Facebook and click on Farmville again, and everything runs fine, The latest one I encountered says it was a Java script coming from the following link, again it popped up after I logged into Facebook, and clicked on Farmville. Here's the link and file info: Urgent firefox update firefox-patch.js JavaScript File (2.6 KB) from https://podaimt2.net https://podaimt2.net/4761283090238/bea2ae3697608b4f8ce3a682c30d7e46.html

Macbook Pro, 2011, 8Gb, OS 10.6.8, OS up to date. Crash on Quit happens on every version of Firefox for a year. Did FF Reset, no better. Cannot use Safe Mode since the websites I visit play videos.

If I visit several sites in succession, most notably huffpost.com, click on several links (and opening new windows as I do), Firefox runs slower and slower and slower. After browsing, with all windows closed, when I quit FF the pinwheel appears, and about 30 seconds later Crash Reporter opens up, which I dutifully fill in. (Note that I have never, ever received any feedback for the over 100 reports filed. Is anybody actually looking at them?) This happens daily, although not in every browsing session. I can minimize the crashing by quitting FF frequently. The more I hyperlink, the more likely FF will crash on Quit.

I recently told FF to erase History on Quit, hoping that would help. It did not.

Something is happening in FF when it is releasing resources prior to quit. It gets worse the more URLs are visited in a browsing session.

I can't believe this is not happening elsewhere.

I am getting seriously tired of this nonsense.

Four at least the fourth or fifth time a Firefox update has messed with my computers settings and programs. This time update 48.0.2 has disabled my surfing protection extension, HP Simple Pass and Norton Identity Safe, saying that the programs "could not be verified for use with Firefox and has been disabled". Naturally, and one again, this arbitrary action has been taken with no information (or even option) on reversing the blasted change.

On top of that, because of these changes my security programs and a few other startup programs have been blocked from running at startup.

Would somebody please tell me how to reactivate these essential items or, preferably, show Firefox's techies how to create an update that doesn't screw with the users settings?

Thanks.

Awesome bar in Firefox prevents access to other applications

The awesome bar's list of completion suggestions is displayed on top of all windows, not just the Firefox window. This causes problems if the spinning beach ball appears while suggestions are being displayed.

When the spinning beach ball appears (as it is often wont to do) while the awesome bar's list of completion suggestions is displayed, Firefox becomes unresponsive and I am unable to switch to another application to continue working. Or, more specifically, I can switch to another application but Firefox's list of completion suggestions covers up the top half of the screen and hides all other application windows. This effectively blocks me from using any other application while Firefox remains in "beach ball mode".

The only recourse is wait until Firefox becomes responsive again, or kill Firefox. (Thankfully, the Force Quit window still is accessible even in this situation.)

I believe this is a change to version 48 as I don't recall running into this problem with earlier versions. Based on my memory, when this happened I could still switch to another application and continue working. Firefox's list of completion suggestions did not hide any application window other than the non-responsive Firefox window. I could continue working in another application and when Firefox became responsive again, I could switch back it.

I am switching back to Firefox version 47 for now but am looking for a workaround in version 48 so I can move up to the latest version.

Hello Folks,

This is not a question but a notification about Crashing and Freezing with two add-ons that I had installed on Firefox 48.0.2. After I updated Firefox was crashing and Freezing every few minutes I filled out the crash reports sent them closed Firefox, I would then open it again only to have the same issue repeat itself after a few minutes. I then tried to figure out why and the only thing I could come up with was the below two add-ons that had been installed after a Windows 7 clean install, which were not the same as I'd used previously. So after uninstalling them everything is working 100% no Freezes or Crashes since. I know nothing about debugging or script writing and could not find a contact email to report the issue so I thought here would be the best option, just incase someone else has the same issue and that this notification may help.
