Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

Firefox 3.6.6 is running REALLY slow.

Firefox just updated (automatically - I seemed to have no choice) to 3.6.6 on my Mac (OS 10.5.4) and is now running unbearably slow. Every website I try to load shows, at the bottom left "waiting for" (then website name) and loads very slowly, compared to Safari 3.1.2. I tried clearing the cache but that didn't help.

Even when on Firefox's own Mozilla support pages, it loads really slow.

What gives? Why did Firefox automatically update to something worse? Can I go backwards and reload the previous, faster version?

Firefox version

3.6.6

Operating system

Mac OS 10.5.4

Plugins installed

Hi There

Hotmail have this week updated their website, since then on Firefox I can't seem to open, delete, compose or do anything with my emails. All I can do is get into the inbox and that's it. I have been on Safari and seem to access all my emails as normal. Is there anything I can do to solve this problem??

I experience strange things with Firefox and Flash. Youtube Videos will not be recognized properly and I have to click the play button not once but a couple of times (up to 10 times) until the button gets triggered. Even worse with camera-recognition (for example on Facebook when you want to take a photo with your webcam): the question if I want to allow access to the camera pops up but I can not click anything. It just does not react at all. I already restarted in safe-mode with all add-ons enabled and it did not help...

I upgraded last week to Firefox 3.6.7 and found it prone to massive hang/unresponsive issues. I updated all my plug-ins; still happened. I tested with disabling plug-ins, and it only happened with Flash. This morning I upgraded to 3.6.8, hoping it would fix the problem, but it's still tripping into hang.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== various sites or windows were active or attempting to be opened. It's happened when I've opened the Add-Ons window, but my usual test has been gmail. It goes into limbo there when I try to delete a message, load another page of inbox, or sometimes load a message.

First, system info: I'm on Mac OS 10.5.8 I was using Firefox 3 until yesterday when I updated to 9. Had no apparent problems with bookmarks after the update but I had not closed the session; it was only after starting up this morning that all my bookmark folders are missing from the Bookmarks Menu.

I've been through all the "lost bookmarks" sections of Firefox - no answers there to my specific problem. Most of them focus on bookmarks being completely missing - but in my case it's only the Folders that are missing.

Here are at least some of the pages I've looked at and been through all the suggestions that were relevant: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Lost_bookmarks https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Lost%20Bookmarks http://kb.mozillazine.org/Lost_bookmarks#Bookmarks_missing_after_restarting https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/common-questions-after-upgrading-firefox-36 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/latest-firefox-issues

There was a momentary power-down yesterday, but the folders were still there when the power came back on, so that's not it.

There was one anomaly with the way my bookmarks WERE. That is, when I selected Bookmarks from the top navigation bar, go down the drop-down past Bookmarks Toolbar, instead of all my folders being displayed there, I'd have to go to Bookmarks Menu and then to a side panel of the Menu which showed a folder saying All Bookmarks and from there I'd have to go to another side panel that opened off that to access the list of all my folders and run down to select one. This strange functionality came after some previous update, never could fix that and got no help with it. So I just put up with having more mouse work to get to my sites.

This is a serious problem for me - I am in training on SEO, internet marketing, Wordpress, etc plus running another business. EVERYTHING I rely upon for my work was meticulously organized into those folders, which now seem to be gone.

Are there any seriously technical people in Firefox/Mozilla who can go deeper than the stuff suggested on their websites?

For the past month, maybe longer, Firefox has been extremely slow. The videos are also delayed. I have used firefox for many years and now I am disappointed with this browser. I cleared the cache and cookies, twice within a week. No improvement. I've been using Safari for my videos, but all my bookmarks are on firefox. How can we fix this problem? Whats going on ??

The auto-upgrader ran when I opened Firefox today. Am now at version 3.6.4, Mac. I also upgraded my Adobe Flash player to the latest version after the initial app re-start as was suggested. Facebook now crashes the app every time I go to it. Can't log in, doesn't even load, the app just crashes as soon as I type in the URL and hit return. FYI...

I recently upgraded two Macbooks from Leopard (10.5) to Snow Leopard (10.6). With just one of the laptops, now when I type in text boxes (not the ones that seem to specify a font in their style), like the body of an email in Outlook Web Access or the body of a message using a web form, the font is in italics. The other laptop is fine. Note that this doesn't happen in Safari or Chrome, only Firefox. I started with Firefox 16 and moved to 18 - that did not solve the problem (so I didn't bother with an uninstall since 18 was a clean install). I opened up my version 12 and the problem wasn't there, so it is only with later versions.

Also - this is not where everything is italics, like in other posts. It is only in text boxes.

I have tried resetting my font settings in Firefox, replacing the Arial font on the laptop with the one from the other laptop, and clearing the font cache. I installed the fontinfo addon, and it shows the same font used as the other laptop - nothing weird.

What can I do to make Firefox act correctly like it does on the other laptop?

Thanks.

Title of my post says it all really: On a Mac, when command-clicking an auction link in a page of search results, the auction should open in a new tab. Instead, nothing happens. If I control-click to bring up the contextual menu I can open in a new tab OK.

This started happening a few weeks ago - maybe after a Firefox or Java update?

This does not happen on eBay.co.uk, by the way, just the US site.

When scaling in page setup, 1st page prints correctly, but subsequent pages do not scale correctly/too large for the paper, parts of the text missing

When trying to print in Firefox, and when scaling the page size in page setup, the first page prints correctly, but subsequent pages do not scale correctly and are too large for the paper, with parts of the text are being cut off at the top and right. This is not fixed by checking or un-checking the "ignore scaling/shrink to fit page width" in the print window, or by changing the scaling%.

I am running Firefox 15.0.1, on Mac OS 10.5.8.

The same problem happens in the print preview and if I save the print as a .pdf

I have tried all the fixes in the how to's and others in various forums with no improvement.

This happens every time I try to print a document scaled up or down only in Firefox.

Moving my mouse over flash animations or flash embedded movies results in the flash being reloaded. It's hard to explain. Basically, it reloads just the flash area every time I move my mouse over it. I know it's not very detailed but I just don't know how to explain it.

I've tried version 3.5.10 and it works fine. Version 3.6.6 is where I'm getting the issue.

I'm running Mac OSX.

I'm using FF5 for Mac and recently installed Java for Mac OSX 10.5 update 10. Since then java no longer works in FF and I cannot find any java plugin in my add-ons (don't know if a plugin was there before the java update, but java worked ok). I tried reinstalling the java update, uninstalling and reinstalling FF5....no luck. My mac won't let my install an older version of java. I don't know if it's directly related to the update or if something is corrupted in FF. Java is working fine in Safari. I installed Google Chrome-java doesn't work. That makes me think it's related to the java update, but I never had Chrome before so I can't be sure. I thought if it was directly related to the java update many people would be affected and the internet would be filled with similar questions, but I haven't heard any yet. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
