After I stop clicking/scrolling on any website windows I opened, their background color turn to black instead of transparent so to browse again I need to refresh them every time. ( I still can see/read through but it is "veiled"). Or right click and go to "inspect element" then to "inspector" to change background color from black to transparent. Well, you know it is CSS. I have tried all the things like disabling ad-on and extensions even cleaned the comp with new Kaspersky 2014 and also used Registry Fix Files software. Nothing. Please help me to find the solution. Is it something to do with Java Script? Thank you. This problem does occur on my off-line, internal files etc

When I got to youtube, or other sites with videos or items that use shockwave, I get a popup that says shockwave isn't working - do I want to retry or stop it. No matter which option I try, firefox remains frozen and I have to restart it. I DO have the latest version of FIREFOX AND SHOCkWAVE. I HAVE ALREADY reset Firefox and that doesn't work either. Why hasn't this been addressed? I see many, many other people have this same problem and it's been going on for months and months and months! PLEASE fix this issue.

This only started happening recently and it's driving me nuts! Everything works fine and then suddenly my history for 'Today' is completely wiped - even sites that are saved in my bookmarks. However, sites that I've visited before 'Today' are fine. I then have to restore my history and bookmarks to get them back. I've done a complete re-installation of Firefox and I still have this problem. What is going on? The only program I've updated recently is Advanced SystemCare from 6 to 7.0 Pro and I'm wondering if a setting in this program is causing the problem. If anyone could help me, I would really appreciate it.

I had to erase my mac and revert back to an older operating system. I was using Time Machine to back up my computer, so I thought it would back up my Firefox bookmarks file as well. I reinstalled Firefox, but I can't seem to find the file anywhere. I checked in this location Library/Application Support/Mozilla

I also have a Sync account, but can't find my recovery key and I no longer have access to the other computer that it was synced to.

Any ideas on how I can get my bookmarks back?

Since this morning Gmail doesn't display icons regarding Change Account, Logout etc. anymore. In IE everything looks fine, so it's not an Google issue. Looking in the Error Console shows a lot of warnings:

and so on.

Also, on a normal Google search page, logo's and icons (magnifier glass) are missing. Any idea what might be wrong??

I have tried disabling the add-on = no help I have tried removing the add-on = no help I even searched the add/remove a program in the control panel = no help

It just keeps on reappearing! This is very annoying and is only occurring in Firefox. I am using Windows 7 64-bit

Is it hidden in my registry somewhere? I also try to permanently remove the Yahoo toolbar using the same steps above, but that mysteriously reappears as well!

I prefer Firefox over the other browser out there, but I am very close to ending this relationship if this cannot be resolved.

What is the trick???

I also have been experiencing the same problem as the OP. Google services including Google Search, GMail, and YouTube are all intermittently inaccessible through the most recent version of firefox on my MacBook Pro running OS X 10.6.8. Additionally, sites that use Google APIs also hang (sometimes) when they try to load.

This is frustrating to me because I depend on these services for much of what I do on the web. It is especially frustrating because Firefox has been a dependable and useful browser for me for years. I have had to start using chrome as a workaround but would really prefer to stick with Firefox.

I have identified this problem as specific to firefox, as I have no issues with the Google services in Chrome or Safari. I am also always able to get normal pings to https://www.google.com and https://www.gmail.com through Network Utility on my Mac.

I have tried all of the above solutions including - clearing the cache and cookies (like a zillion times by now) - disabling and deleting all add-ons - starting firefox in safe mode - deleting firefox and reinstalling from a freshly downloaded dmg - manually deleting the user profile for firefox from Library - Changing the manual proxy setting to NO PROXY in firefox preferences - removing all trusted add-ons from firefox preferences - Pushing RESET in the about:config dialog - Resetting my modem/router

I tried to adjust the keyword setting in about:config but when i searched for it it was not present. I wonder if this is part of the problem.

Additionally I have removed the Auto-update files that google software like google earth use to call home to check for updates.

None of these have resolved the issue. I still can only sometimes access Google services using firefox. If I am logged in to GMail using Firefox, i will at some point lose connection and be unable to reestablish the connection for an indeterminate period of time.

This problem has been going on longer than a week or two, maybe a month. I don't know what to do to resolve the issue.

I believe there must be something broken in the way Firefox handles requests for google sites that I have not yet been able to reset or change.

Please, if anyone has found an actual, permanent solution, respond to this thread.

Thanks!

(this seems to be similar to the problem described in another Mozilla support thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/963648 )

it still does it in safe mode, i've reset firefox, did both virus & malware scans (even being in Linux), the flash players up to date & is the only plugin installed.

$ uname -vr 3.11.0-14-generic #21-Ubuntu SMP Tue Nov 12 17:07:40 UTC 2013

It's completely random, never the same webpage. Feel like a JS script get unresponsive, then maybe a minute after everything is frozen, all windows close and Xubuntu give me a crash report window. ( That I submit every time )

I have both windows that are "normal", and some that are "private", maybe 5-10 tabs in each.

Never had this problem before.

I am trying to ftp sites in Firefox 25.0.1 But getting error :

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at ftp.mozilla.org.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I have tried many times, even ftp.mozilla.org is not opening. Same error is there every time. Please help me.
