this happens on popular sites, so it's not an isolated problem for me. I just updated flash to 11.3 and I am having this issue, along with a now invisible progression bar in youtube videos, until I mouse over it, which somehow makes it appear again.

Deletion of the last of the offered thumbnail choices can freeze that tab. Happens when using the new New Tab feature on Firefox v13.0.1, installed 6/17/12. I can still delete the entire New Tab screen and then start another.

I am running Win XP+SP3 on an Acer Inspire One netbook with a 1024x600 screen. This seems to happen every time I try it. This morning's update informed me about this new feature, so I was trying it out.

To reproduce:

Click New-Tab and the 9 thumbnails almost fit the screen (pic1). I scroll down to see the bottom of the screen (pic2). I click the [X] to delete the bottom right thumbnail. The thumbnail images shift up a little, then the screen image freezes (pic3).

I have screen images for pic1-pic3, if they might be useful.

I tried safe mode so that isn't it and i tried reinstalling flash player. I have also tried adding an 's' to http and that hasn't helped. I have also disable adblock and that doesn't work. When I go onto a youtube video page, there is a big play button as if the video were embedded on another page and when i click the button all that happens is a notification that says An error occurred, please try again later.

I can no longer click on certain things in firefox. Sometimes if I reload the page I can click, but that doesn't always solve the problem. This is most common on things like facebook, the birthday and event tabs. If I click on them nothing happens, but sometimes when I reload the page it works. I have noticed this is mainly when it involves things/links that open a small drop box that you have to click or enter information into.

For example, the drop box that allows you to write on people's walls when it's their birthdays. Or another example is on my company's website. If i want to pick up a shift, I click on this button that says pickup shift and then a drop box comes out that says "enter comment" for my manager.

I am not sure what to do about the following 3 third-party plugins. It appears that the Windows Presentation Foundation plugin "has a major security vulnerability that can be exploited by malicious websites as described in the Firefox Article "How to enable and disable Windows Presentation Foundation." It seems that the easiest way to deal with this plugin is to disable it via the add-ons manager. My question do the other two plugins pose security risks - should I disable them. I have tried to find additional information on all three plugins and cannot seem to ascertain whether they need to be updated or if, in fact, there are updates for these plugins. I am not sure if they are even compatible with Firefox, perhaps they been added to the Mozilla Add-ons block list. At any rate, any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

The three plugins in question are:

Microsoft Office 2003 Unkown  ? Research Office plugin for Netscape Navigator plugin

Windows Presentation Foundation Unknown  ? Research (WPF) plugin for Mozilla Browsers plugin

Google Update Unknown  ? Research Google Update

Thank you in advance.

when I pick a room to play on pogo I get this message fb connect library is missing and the game will not load. If I pick play now I cam play by myself. I also have SeaMonkey as a back up browser. When I pick a game using SeaMonkey the games work just fine. I can pick any room and it loads just fine. So how do I get pogo to work right. This problem started about a week or so ago before that I had no problems.Thank you for your help.

I am also having a problem opening Firefox since updating it. I clicked on Add-ons and nothing is happening.

I have an install of phpMyAdmin on my web server that has a local session timer of 30 days. This keeps me from having to repeatedly log in to my own server locally. Ever since the update to 13.0.0, my sessions would last a maximum of 4 hours. 4 hours on to the second, it would remove my session, even in mid-use, cancelling out any SQL I was working on when it timed out. Now with 13.0.1, it's only lasting a maximum of 2 hours 30 mintutes.

If there's no way to revert this change or an option I can't find, then I'm reverting the latest version of 12.x I have tucked away on my flash drive and disabling auto update.

If I want to set my sessions longer than you suggest, that's my problem. Not yours. Fix?
