I have an asp page (vbscript) which reads file names from a folder, parses the names to add them to a MS SQL database, renames / moves the files and then shows how many file have been processed. In Chrome it works. in Firefox most of the process works but the number of files always shows as zero.

I also have an other asp / vbscript page which imports a csv file into MS SQL, but almost invariably it doubles up on the number of records it imports. In Chrome it works every time.

Am I doing something wrong with variable handling?

This has been a recurring problem. In the past I have had to manually reinstall Firefox from their website each time new version comes out. But then when the next version comes along, it never updates itself again. I would think installing the new, latest version from your website would fix this, but it does not. Why does the update feature of Firefox never work on my Win & system? Every time I install Firefox I use the same folder, but not the default. I am installing into "C:\Program Files(x86)\Internet Applications\Mozilla Firefox". I would hope your updater would be smart enough to know that, but thought I should share. Everything else should be standard.

I'm running the latest version of Firefox (as of 3 Oct 2014-- can't check which version because I can't figure out which button to press-- see question) on Windows 8.1. I haven't closed the browser but suddenly ALL icons have disappeared. If I click on the blank spaces, the functions will still work (e.g. I can still close a tab), but I cannot see the following: Reload, Home, etc. buttons; Bookmark folder icons; Any of the icons in the Settings tab; Exes in the upper right-hand corner of the tabs; Favicons.

Vevo or any other official music videos are not playing in Firefox. After loading for 10 seconds, I am getting "An Error occurred" error. I don't have this problem with other videos. This problem occurred yesterday, although I didn't do any system changes or software updates during the day. In Internet Explorer 11 which using HTML5 Player by default, those videos are starting to play but only after 10 seconds load and not immediately like other videos. When forcing HTML5 Player in Firefox those videos are starting to play after 10 seconds load like in IE but HTML5 Player is very instable in Firefox. Software wise everything is up to date and I already reinstalled both Firefox and IE but the problem is still there. Even System Restore didn't help. Net research also didn't bring any solutions.

System: Intel I5-2500 @ 3.30GHz 16GB RAM Win 7 Ultimate 64bit OS which is run in Admin Mode FF33.0 32bit ran in 64bit (Large Address Aware 2.0.4) TuneUp Utilities 2014 x64 Perfect Disk 13 (all drives are done in Smartplacement Performance)

Network: Telenet Fibernet XL (189.85Mbps down, 9.45Mbps up, 9 sec latency)

Extensions: -Ad-Aware Security Add-On 3.7 -Adblock plus 2.6.4. -Adblock Plus Pop-Up Addon 0.9.2 -Ant Video Downloader 4.9.7.26 -Download Helper 4.9.24 -Easy Youtube Downloader 6.9 -Flash and Video Download 1.62 -Flash Video downloader - Youtube Full HD Download 6.1.2 -Greasemonkey 2.2 -Youtube Center 2.1.0 -Youtube AAdblocke 1.0

Now, whatever I do, such as typing, every 5 seconds I get a 2'ish second freeze. Often, I crash loading a new tab. I run appx. 24 tabs. Tune Up Utilities has Simultaneous Connections for FF on Unlimited.

Minor Questions: Why does my system, which is not too bad, does this? It should be able to run FF smoothly, no hangs, no crashes. But it does not seem to work this way. Do I have conflicting Extensions, or Plugins? Do I have conflicting Extensions that run amok with a plugin? Why do some Plugins appear double? Can I kill one of the doubles off?

Major question: How can I make FF smooth again?

Thank you beforehand: Xog

FF needs to become "smarter" about Restoring. Only do a chunk of say 10 tabs at a time, and improve the error recognition & handling so it doesn't just spin forever. Sometimes it doesn't even show the spinner; just won't respond & Activity Monitor says its Not Responding. Can't tell if the Not Responding is due to an active but CPU stealing process that is proceeding, or a stuck process where I should Force Quit. Just have to let it go for 10 minutes before Force Quit.

Restore needs to have a popup window that tells me exactly what tab it is actively Restoring at the moment, and a timer showing how long it was been working on that Tab. And I need to be able to tell FF how long to try before abandoning that Tab. I need to be able to tell it to abandon that tab sooner via a click button. Abandoned tabs go into a menu for me to mess around with later.

Noticed that mozilla.org is often "on top" when FF hangs up. And just now, navigating from the main mozilla page to here (3 layers deep?) I had to wait 5-10 seconds for each page to load. Is the mozilla server just underpowered for the amount of traffic, or what?

My Firefox 32 .0 is using lots of CPU, and it frequently goes into "not responding" state. I restarted in safe mode, and the same condition happened. Is there any way for me to determine what tab(s)/URL(s) are causing the problem? I really do not want to start closing each of my many tabs and windows one-by-one to see which one(s) might be causing the problem. I am running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. Thanks.

Firefox on mac osx with automatic updates for OS and Firefox up to date for over a year recently started producing failed downloads (probably between 9-13 and 9-14, around the time of the last Firefox update). What has been tried to fix this: everthing from the Mozilla help pages “What to do if you can't download or save files” asserted to be based on information from “Unable to save or download files (mozillaZine KB)” with the exception of dealing with the "plist" file since that could not be found in this OS installation. If anything has changed through these efforts, it has been to cause the failure to be more severe. Before attempting any fixes, the downloads usually produced a zero-byte file of the expected name and an apparently full-length download file with the expected name and a ".part" extension (or an abbreviated download file with a jumbled alphanumeric name and ".part" extension). After all the fixes were attempted, with the additional trial of patching the profile from TimeMachine back-ups well before the initiation of the problems, and then a final effort of a complete Firefox re-install (freshly downloaded via the separate account on the computer then Firefox removed prior to a fresh install), downloads now fail for that one problem account producing only the zero-byte file of the expected name and no ".part" files yet seen again. Created new profiles in Firefox under the same computer account inherit the same download problems (tried twice).

FYI: in addition to the troubleshooting information below, the computer account with the Firefox problems reports another four plug-ins (Blue Jeans, RBlue Jeans and "install" for both). As these do not show up on this computer account where the Firefox browser has no download issues, this may matter. But since the download issues were independent of Safe Mode operation for Firefox, presumably the plug-in differences would not matter.

Hey everyone! I have such a weird issue. About two months ago, my Firefox (after years of being stable on my 2012 Macbook Pro) started crashing consistently. Many times, it crashes only seconds after opening a webpage, and will crash every time that website opens. After trying everything I could to fix it, this weekend I reinstalled OSX Mavericks and started over again. I installed Firefox and then Flash, and instantly the browser started crashing. It crashes no matter what website I visit. I would say--somehow--the problem is worse than it was in the past. Sometimes, like in the second report below, I can keep Firefox from crashing as a browser for quite a while but Flash has crashed within the browser and typically won't work any longer.

Here are some crash reports from different sites.

I wish I knew why Firefox has been crashing, but even in Safe Mode it dies. Here's what I do know:

1) Firefox was running fine in Fedora 17. Very rarely a crash even with 30 windows and 100+ tabs on multiple desktops.

2) I upgraded (as in: new install, but same home directory) from Fedora 17 to Fedora 20. No new hardware. Constant crashes - sometimes multiple times per hour. Sometimes multiple times per minute. Sometimes, crashing immediately on 'restart' of session while opening all my tabs back up & I have to do this a few times to get it working... usually, once it's up, it stays running for an hour or two.

3) Reduced windows to 12-15, and tabs to ~30. No effect.

4) Tried creating a new profile; tried different desktop environment (Cinnamon vs Gnome); tried uninstalling Flash plugin, other plugins, and then tried Safe Mode. Crash, crash crash.

I'm kind of at my wit's end. Fedora 20 is updated with latest packages. I am using the Nvidia proprietary drivers, but it crashes even in "Safe Mode", so hardware accel shouldn't be the cause.

I can run memtest86+ (which could take quite a while on a 16G RAM machine), but it would be quite a coincidence that I would have a memory failure right at the time I upgraded to Fedora 20, would it not?
