bp-1ebfd562-c4f0-4c58-a7f9-b19962140128

crash usually happens when I try to upload a doc, after clicking on buttons like "upload resume" type. FF 26 freezes from time to time for about 5-7 sec and than look like everything comes back again.

crash and freeze might be related but they dont happens with the same frequancy. mostly freezes, crash is about twice a day.

addons I suspect are "flashblock" 1.5.17 and "Ads EWOQ Mobile Viewr 1.2" possibly "noscript"

while "Noscript" is not important, I cant do my work without "Flashblock" and "Ads EWOQ".

Ever since last week up to 2 weeks ago my Firefox Browser (26.0 Version) will just stop working and say (Not Responding) like ever 5-10 minutes, even reset the browser and even put it in Safe Mode still the same thing happened and it will freeze my computer to where I have to shut it down. Also I have run my Microsoft Security Essentials anti-virus, malwarebytes, and superantispyware software (not at the same time obviously) still nothing and run C Cleaner, and then if I am watching a movie, listening to music or playing a game in the browser or Spotify it will say plug-in not working and asks me to shut it down, same thing will long scripts and I don't understand this I am at my wits end what do I do? Because this is becoming ridiculous real quick! Thanks in advance for anyone who can help me answer this question!

Alright I have nothing happen when I put something in the google search on the start page. It just sits there. I the awesome bar it works. I have searched a long time to find the answer and have had no LUCK. I am using Zorin 7.1 in VMWare. I have cleared cooking, Cache, and reset FF 26 several times all with no success. I would like to fix this.

This is my first time with a question here is it emailed or how do I get an answer?

Normally, when Firefox encounters a link with a pseudo-protocol that it doesn't know how to process (such as iTunes store links, which Apple only wants you to open with iTunes), usually Firefox puts up a "Launch Application" dialog each time, which allows the user to choose a program to use for the URL (or, for the way I usually use this dialog, to cancel the attempt to act on the URL completely) - unless you check the "Remember my choice" option, in which case it will stop asking, but put an entry on the Applications page of the Options dialog, in case you want to change the chosen action in the future. However, in the case of the new Windows store URLs, I don't get that dialog and I don't have an entry in the Options; I automatically get thrown off the Desktop and into the Windows store app every time, with no obvious way to change this behavior. What's different about these URLs (or about Firefox's reaction to them) that won't allow me to modify or abort this action?

when i play a youtube video in nightly brower and the video is finished , it repeats it self from the beginning then finishes and repeats again and again. so how can i solve this problem, because repeating videos consumes my internet bandwidth specially if i was in facebook and played a video in the facebook page itself. note also that i have download an addon that allows full youtube video buffer (youtube center addon) so the solution in my case is not pausing the video. thank you.

Today, I wanted to view a model on thingiverse using their thingyview. This javascript 30 viewer uses webGL. I remember using it in former firefox versions quite often.

Now, it won't work. It works in Google Chrome and Opera with no problem, so I assume this must be problem of browser configuration, not drivers.

Before the update everything was working fine, but yesterday after the update I noticed that whenever I open a page and after that I hit back button, it doesn't reload the page like before. It's annoying, because I use forum and sometimes is confusing when I open a thread and after that it still says that "new thing", the only way to remove it is to reload the page from the refresh button.

Why don't you make a new version of Mozilla Firefox for windows computers that wouldn't crash if you open 10 or more tabs? I like your browser, don't ruin it!

Seriously, more and more people are leaving Mozilla because of constant crashes after opening few tabs. I don't like google chrome as I am using this browser for years and the only thing I hate here is crashing. If chrome doesn't crash, why can't you copy their solution and stop crashing in new version of Mozilla firefox? My internet connection is fine, so is speed, so there aren't some other causes of crash, and many Mozilla users I knew stopped using it and are now using chrome. Please do something about it, don't let google outnumber you.

Today I had problems printing a shipping label so the customer service rep told me to clear my cache history. I dont know if my problem is related to this but earlier I accessed a website and after this I could not. I kept getting the error:

The connection has timed out

The server at www. .com is taking too long to respond.

   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.

its weird beacause the url goes blank

I tryed restore it cannot restore I tryed another browser and it could not get site. I tryed other sites and they load fine..

What can I do ?

How to restore session when sessionstore.js/.bak is corrupted

Hello. Here we go again with the same (very) old and (very) annoying story. Windows 7 somehow decides to freeze, forcing me to force shut down. And guess what? That's right. My Firefox session is gone..

What's that? Try to search sessionstore.bak to see if it stored the previous session before it was gone? Ok that'll work. Except that sessionstore.bak even if it has the correct time and it's 2.30 MB it contains nothing more but many many empty spaces.

Tried restoring previous file version method, didn't work. (I probably had this function disabled). Tried Recuva program to restore deleted files, found the correct one (.js) only to be the same with the current (containing spaces). Found another almost 2 weeks old (.js), 3.02 MB, contains weird characters and a list of registry keys that are uncompleted(?). Tried copying the contents of that file to that site "herokuapp" ("When All Else Has Failed" - Why this should not), didn't work probably because there aren't any valid tab websites in there.

So here's a suggestion to Firefox developers and those who are involved with it: The .bak file was a good idea. It stores the previous session when something goes horribly wrong. But what if that file gets corrupted or accidentally replaced? You should add an alternative backup method. Another file that will store the session ONCE at the beginning of EACH new day, even if Firefox had not been shut down. Also add a friendly option to access this file through Firefox from its menu. That will save a lot of headaches, a lot of time and more. I am sure this wouldn't be hard for you. And please do not rely on third-party add-ons for this, it should be an official working function. TABS = FIREFOX, keep the tradition, keep it good.

So, is there really another way of accessing my lost tabs (or websites) without these files? I mean except from going through hell (History), which is considered my only option right now, and I don't even remember most of my tabs. What's even worse I don't keep the pages loaded to save memory avoiding Firefox crashes, Flash plugin crashes and extremely painful slow downs, when I don't quit Firefox for a few days. Unless I am missing something here.

Please help and thanks.
