I'm using a MacBook (late 2008) with OS X 10.9.1. The icon for Firefox will not stop jumping. It was exhibiting this behavior before I started it as well as after while I was using another application. I have not seen this before. I am using the latest version (26.0) of Firefox so it wasn't an alert to update. It is even doing this as I type this info.

Is there an app or other way of comparing the urls of pdfs on my computer that have been saved & printed with urls in the browsing history (to find out if the browsing history has duplicates)? I'm looking for a means that doesn't involve the downloads manager or downloads folder.

Thank you!

If i log into our Corporate SharePoint server, i get 401 Unauthorized. The reason why is because when i go to the URL (local FQDN), this version of firefox does not ask me for a username/password. It just goes right to 401 Unauthorized.

I need to make firefox ask me for a user/pass.

I have searched the forums and cannot find anything. I have tried to changed the privacy settings under preferences for the History, and when i change it to "Use Custom Settings for History", when i restart firefox, its changed back to "Remember History"

This has caused our company a lot of grief when they all updated to this latest version and now no one can login. We have told them to use a different browser for now.

This use to work in all previous versions of FireFox.

Please help.

Thanks

I use browse by name queries to surf a good part of the internet, but there's a weird thing going on with the Fox and it's a strange operation.

Whenever I type in the name of a website hit enter and then goto a different tab, the page loads on the tab I changed to, not the original tab.

I start with Tab 1 and request cnet in BBN. I change to Tab 2 which has facebook loaded and I'm looking through it.

Request completes

Tab 1 has cnet in a google search Tab 2 has changed to cnet.com by itself.

How do I make this stop?

and the most scaring:

Why it happens? Is it dangerous? How can I turn it off?

I saw that on the latest Firefox release for Mac and on Firefox ESR 31.2.0 for Mac I saw that on Thunderbird release for Mac 31.2.0

I had about 20-30 tabs open, but that has never been an issue. Firefox was slow to load an active page, and suggested restore. I clicked restore and tried to reopen firefox. the main page came up and then crashed. I tried again and it crashed again. I opened in safe mode, and it crashed. I uninstalled from the app folder, opened opera to download and reinstall, and it still crashed. That was two days ago. I cleaned everything off the computer related to firefox in the spotlight search, and uninstalled and reinstalled. It opened for a little longer, and crashed again.

I am getting 1000s of emails. I made a tiny donation to Mozilla and everything went wild. I ended up going to google for help...as my email accounts are gmail. My mail program is Apple. Please investigate how this is happening and let me know. I think I stopped the damage by closing every account I could over the telephone today. Any help is appreciated.

Hi all,

I'm on a Mac Mini running 10.9.5 and Firefox 34.0.5 (which is the latest for my system, as of this writing). I'd been running Firefox without issues for a long time, but a few days ago I started it up and found that trying to reach the following sites all result in an immediate crash: 1) GMail.com (looks like it crashes once it redirects to gmail.com/intl/en/mail/help/about.html) 2) https://www.facebook.com 3) wikipedia.org 4) https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/

I'm finding that each of these addresses will cause Google Chrome to revert to its "Aw Snap!" error message — but Safari will display all of them without any problem.

Here are some things I've tried to solve this: 1) zapped PRAM, reset SMC, ran Apple Hardware Test, repaired disk permissions; 2) COMPLETELY uninstalled Firefox and all associated files/preferences, then started over with a completely new profile; 3) completely uninstalled both Flash and Java, then reinstalled them (I do need Java, unfortunately); 4) ran Firefox in Safe Mode, which doesn't solve the problem; 5) did a whole bunch of things to ensure that all the fonts on my system are valid, and are where they need to be

The only thing that's worked so far is to restart my Mac in Safe Boot Mode, and that plus the fact that these sites crash Firefox and Chrome but not Safari are my only clues... I just don't know what to make of them.

Anyone have any ideas? Something all those sites have in common maybe?
