Days and days wasted following boilerplate instructions. Disable hardware acceleration: blah blah blah- Edit flash MMS.cfg file - blah blah blah pages freeze - pages turn white- ball spins endlessly. uninstall - reinstall program ...uninstall profiles...plugins on plugins off ...blah blah Blah Win7 64bit - did system restore. Total waste of time. Please Give us a chance to go back. Many report the same problem, yet you act like it's never happened and offer the same lame corrective steps.... Shame. Why lie??? Why lie??? Give us a link to revert, or tell us your done trying so we don't waste any more of our time our time in futility.

Firefox is eating up between 90% CPU usage to %230 CPU usage, while on a text-only page. I've tried many of the fixits. They didn't work. What can I do?

I've cleared cookies multiple times

I've emptied the cache

I cleared my download history, and a majority of my browsing history

I've tried having hardware acceleration for both flash and firefox on and off

I turned off all my apps and plugins and when that did nothing I turned back on the ones I need. I never had a lot of apps to begin with. only a max of 5. I had quite a few plugins, but i disabled all but quicktime, flash, and silverlight. I have those three set on "ask to activate" so none are "always active" anymore.

I also tried a couple things from the FAQ and forums here about changing a few settings in the "about:config" setup.

A few of the above things initially worked, but after a day or two it'd be back to sucking up my CPU and memory. I would then try the same thing again, and this second time there would be no improvement. The real memory will fluctuate between 200 MB and 1.7 GB, and has done so for quite a while.

Even after I've left streaming sites, and sites with lots of images, and I'm not downloading anything, the memory and the CPU will still do that. I only have a handful of tabs open at a timeusually, and all of them are mostly text. I'll quit and reopen firefox, which will initially bring the memory and CPU usage down, but it inevitably climbs up quite quickly, regardless of my tab usage. It'll be the same if I'm playing a flash game or scrolling through blogs.

I never had any of these problems with Firefox 23, and my internet usage habits haven't changed at all. I had some of this slowness a few times with version 24, but nowhere near as bad as this, or as constant. Almost everyday I end up googling for other ways to speed things up. Everything I do never slowed down Firefox on earlier versions.

I've tried all my usual tasks on Safari which will never climb above 30-40 MB of memory, even on netflix streaming, or flash games, and the CPU will average around 8 and 11%.

Hello, I have had this issue for a while and I have finally decided to ask for some help, usually I can find answers to my problems but am a bit stumped on this one. My issue is this: I do a search, right click link and open in new tab - works 80% of the time. ok other 20% page wont open just stuck. Whats interesting though is I have found if I refresh the google search page I can then open the link fine, - the first open page is still sitting there spinning around, sometimes when the link opens this will kick the first try into finding the site. Now it has been getting worse. Now links on web pages becoming inactive as in i click on the link and nothing happens, right click and it does not have open in new tab ect. Its as though the page has lost all of it connections to the internet. sometimes when i refresh the page after a link not working it will open the linked page? bizarre. I have done a lot of research on this and have done things like clear the cache, uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, changed to new profile, and a myriad of other things mainly in regards to pages wont load. does this happen in other browsers, I barely use other browsers so haven't noticed that it does. I use ghostery and ad block plus, ad block pop up, ad block is set to exclude google. does this happen on other computers with firefox on my wireless network? not as much sometimes pages wont load but can put that down to internet or wireless issues. I cant rule out it being a browser issue because when pages wont load from google links i can open bookmarks and the pages load as well as links from them out to the internet, and the page open via google still sits on spinning, try the link again and again and still wont load. Could it just be a bad link? it happens far too often for the internet to have that many bad links. other clues, Ad block plus and ghostery have used this and updated for a long time with out these issues. Issues only started with the last couple of firefox updates. something of interest is that this issue started around the time we upgraded to adsl 2+ from adsl and got a new modem, but the internet is still connected and I can still surf from the bookmarks so that could be just a coincidence so I still cant rule out a browser issue. oh does the page time out - eventually yes but takes a long time, I do see it saying waiting for fonts.google or other such things but tried all of those fixes and nothing helps. I hope I have been able to get my issue across. Any help would be greatly appreciated Soleous75

When I updated to Firefox 25.0.1 all my add-ons were gone so I downloaded some of them again. My problem is with Flashgot when I downloaded it I can add the Flashgot (thunderbolt) sign to the toolbar, but the Flashgot media icon (which looks like a cinema reel) is not visible.

So basically when I try to add add-ons I right click on the Firefox toolbar which gives me the option to "remove or add items" by dragging them. So I dragged Flashgot media (called FG Media) (which is not visible in the menu by the way) and predictably was not visible on the Firefox add-ons toolbar

Anyone know what's up?

At the *very* least "This Month" should always be an option! I could not browse 3 days of history until changing my clock.

I received an email from AppleID@customers.appstore.36.ca asking me to update my account info. As my cc expiry date had just changed so I thought oh damn I forgot. I put in my updated info, then when I hit submit, at least I think that was what was on the bottom, don't honestly remember, any way a screen for "Reported Web Forgery" popped up. I got out of there I did not go any farther but did my information go anywhere? Looking closer at the email, there it DHgate.com web address at the bottom. Please put my mind at ease! Thank you. I just need to know if my info went any where.

Can't think of a proper title, sorry. But anyway, good day to everyone.

Before, Firefox had this option of disabling images from loading on websites. Recent Firefox updates removed that feature, but I'm okay with that, but... How am I gonna view/enable the images again on the sites I have included in the list of auto-disable image display? =/

I tried the Right Click > View Page Info option and unchecked the checkbox that blocks images from loading in the [Media] tab, but every time I close it and refresh the page, nothing happens and the checkbox is checked yet again. Same goes to the [Load Image] under the [Permissions] tab. =/

So, uh, yeah... Help?
