This popup appears every time I shut down the computer; from event viewer: Application popup: plugin-container.exe - Application Error : The exception Breakpoint A breakpoint has been reached.

(0x80000003) occurred in the application at location 0x4f49006f.

Click on OK to terminate the program

the location generally ends with either 6f or 2b.

These are some crash reports that should correspond to the error

is there any way to determine what plugin is causing this?

Something has snuck into my browser even though I always delete any search engine changes etc. when installing programs. I usually have quite a few tabs open and I have ffox set to show windows and tabs on startup but something got in to change my search to yahoo and it apparently deleted all of my tabs. I do not see them in history, only my recent searches. Restore session is greyed out. There was also a ffox update, so I don’t know what did this. I removed anything that may have caused it, have done scans and got my default search engine back (google). Still nothing. I do not see any file called sessionstore.js in profiles; it has files that are called .default. When I rename that file and put in the upgrade.js file (I think it was from that ffox upgrade) it gives me an error so ffox can’t start (no preferences etc). There are other files in the sessionstore-backups but they are from after when this happened. How do I get my tabs back? A system restore won’t do anything for this will it? W7 and 49.0.2. Sick of stuff like this from those helpful people changing things on me.

Firefox changes all Facebook URLs to the same one I don't want.

Firefox 49.0.2; Windows XP SP3. When I go to the Facebook Homepage, it opens a page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Totnes-on-the-Move/336125953141654) which must somehow… (read more)

Firefox 49.0.2; Windows XP SP3. When I go to the Facebook Homepage, it opens a page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Totnes-on-the-Move/336125953141654) which must somehow have been set up 5 years ago as a 'default' page. I have no memory of this. Result is I can't go to the Facebook Homepage because either Firefox or Facebook switches the URL to the Totnes-on-the-Move one. Every other Facebook URL that I type into the address bar gets switched to that Totnes-on-the-Move one. It's probably very simple, but everybody in town that I've asked is baffled!

Hi. Been having an issue with Firefox this last week (though it's happened before, just not to this extent) in that's it's being incredibly slow and moves at the pace of a snail. To give some examples, when I try type (like right now) there's a delay for the words to show up instead of popping up as I type. Another is the browser seems to freeze up for a couple seconds when I try and scroll up or down, before doing at an quick and uneven pace.

I'm uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox (reinserting my profile after doing so), disable all themes, plugins and add-ons, restarted Firefox in safe mode, and none of these have made a positive difference (in some cases it actually made it worse).

Any way of fixing this? I've been using Firefox for years now and I don't relish the idea of having to transition to another browser if hte problem could just be solved on its own.

After using firefox for a while (usually longer than an hour consecutively) I will occasionally scroll on a webpage, only to have the scroll icon which appears not disappear after I have stopped scrolling. Interestingly, the scroll bars do not disappear even upon closing firefox; currently, the only way I have found to get rid of them is to restart my pc. I have attached some screenshots to better convey this issue, and if there is anything else I can do or provide let me know!

Thanks

This is driving me crazy and beyond frustration. Now, I have tried every thing mentioned in the blogs none of the suggestions work ,so lets take a fresh look. My version is 49.0.2 The web pages are usually newspapers The Sydney Morning Herald and the Guardian. When Icut and paste these pages into Chrome or Opera they work fine, but Firefox .well sometimes I get sound and no picture, sometimes I get nothing. I also notice i can't log into any of the blogs on these newspapers, the button for comments just isn't there , it's gone, and yet once again I open these pages in another browser and I can comment, the button is there and all the log in details are available . Totally at the point of uninstalling Firefox forever.

So basically I've been using Firefox for quite some time now, I have a load of bookmarks and I frequently have upwards of 50> tabs usually <100. I use an old OS - Vista.

I have found Firefox to be stable until recently, as it is really unstable. I am almost crashing a lot of the time. What I mean by almost crashing, is that the browser stop registering my clicks and the page(s) I am viewing go cloudy and the browser goes in a 'not responding mode'. However, it rarely actually closes Firefox and crashes properly to desktop. But I usually have to wait a good 10-30 seconds for it to respond and return to normal. Sadly, this happens often and it is quite common for a 'not responding' problem to be followed by another immediately after.

I have sometimes lost old 'restore sessions', so I may have edited a few things in my directory - but I don't see why that would affect the stability of the browser in this way.

Again, the problem is not that Firefox crashes full on to desktop; it's that it goes into a 'Not Responding Mode' more than frequently.


Any help would be appreciated.


Many thanks,

Rich

To Whom It May Concern,

I have updated FireFox and noticed that when I begin typing in the address bar you added a 'search with Google' feature. This is interfering with my usual performance because I use the search bar to search my bookmarks. This now adds an extra step that is not wanted. How can I disable this? Thanks!

Since the last Firefox update all of my tabs go blank after I leave them and have to reload when I come back and the reloading is extremely long. If I close and restart Firefox the problem stops for a short time but ALWAYS comes back. I have never had this problem in previous versions of Firefox.
