Installed/upgraded Firefox v27 to v28beta to try out the Windows 8 Touch version on my Surface Pro 2. Relaunched via menu link in desktop version. Opened in Metro on my home page ok, but no menu bar/ icon. Closed and reopened using Metro icon. Opened to the start page? where it shows links, history, etc. None of the links worked and there is no menu bar visible. Forced to restart in desktop mode.

Accidentally (2 days ago) deleted my firefox browsing history by running CC Cleaner on windows 8.1. The index.dat reader I use tells me that Win 8 doesn't use such files anymore. The "places.sql" file in my profile folder has all my history in it. But it still doesn't show up in the history tab or the search bar (the dropdown display of matches, when I type a few characters) i.e the browser acts like there ain't no history. The history tab shows just 2 days' history !! yelp!!

I have the same problem with my laptop with IE10 and Google Chrome that runs Win 8.The common thing is my Mobile Partner(HUAWEI) USB modem that I have to insert in either PC to connect to the Internet or check email. I have uninstall and re-installed its SW but still have the same problem.No problem with emails with gmail,OE or Mail.

Whenever I use Facebook dynamic search, Firefox stops responding. This issue also involves writing a new post/comment using the at-sign, which starts dynamic user search.

  • Before update from FF27 to FF28 it did not happen. (I use Windows 7.)
  • Safe mode does not help.
  • Clearing cache and deleting Facebook cookies does not help. Neither new profile nor clean install helps.
  • There are no crash reports within Firefox as well as no Windows error logs generated.
  • Other browsers on this computer do not have this problem, another computer with FF28 that I use works well. Firefox 28 on this computer with Ubuntu Linux works.

Edit: I got Firefox not responding even at going through conversations (messages). So I can generalize that any operation at Facebook, during which three "waiting" bars appear, can lead to the not-responding state of Firefox.

Under Tools > Options > General, my Firefox home page is set to: https://www.google.com/. When I open a new tab, the page opens up to the old Firefox Start/Google home page. The address shows: www.google.com/firefox. In the middle of this screen reads, "You're not on the latest version of Firefox. Upgrade today to get the best of the Web!" I have the latest version of Firefox. Why aren't my tabs opening up as my initial home page opens up to: https://www.google.com/? I was looking to add a screenshot of my home page and the tabs home page, but I don't see an option to do that.

This is the same problem as https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/987650

What the moderator, cor-el, did not understand and the poster could not seem to explain is that it is not Firefox's autofill that is the cause of the problem. So, clearing the forms history will not fix this issue.

It is Firefox's reaction to Facebook's attempt to present a dropdown list of friend and page suggestions for addition to your comment the same way it would if you typed "@" first. FB's attempt to make things simpler for it's users by doing this without the "@" symbol seems to be causing a conflict in Firefox that totally freezes the browser. "Mozilla Firefox (Not responding)" is displayed and no amount of waiting changes things. No option for a crash report or anything but to close it.

It happens randomly when typing in a comment or status, usually after 2 or 3 letters into a word that matches the first 2 or 3 letters of someone in your friends list or liked/followed pages/groups or even other commentators. Unfortunately, for me, that means even typing "the" can cause this issue. As far as I can tell, there is no way to turn this off in FB's settings.

I understand that this is caused by Facebooks implementation of the feature, but it is my hope that someone at Mozilla can offer a fix or patch for this since it's unclear how many FF users are affected and it may take some time before FB addresses the issue.

Please help. I would really prefer to not have to type my comments in Notepad before pasting them on FB.

Thanks.

Hi

We use FFox in a corporate environment due to issues with IE on certain intranet pages.

The existing version 17 had a number of files that we used to customise and lock down firefox, ie preventing users going in in safe mode etc.

These files no longer appear to be present in v24.2.0

I need to prevent users from pressing the shift key and entering ffox in safemode as they could disable/remove the plugins we use to assist locking down the application.

Can someone please advise on how I can achieve this in this version.

thanks

I really need a new IP address. My whole info I believe has been compromised. I have so much going on with my e-mail address that I can't change it because of job applications, gov. contacts, family contacts, my whole life was put in this IP and e-mail through yahoo that I will literally be dead in the water without help. They hacks are so crafty they have been calling my cell phone to get a voice recognition recorded. I get calls from a place asking if I'm some African guy. THIS IS TERRORISM! I'm being attacked. Some one is trying to say they are me, I try and not take it personal but I AM. They are mocking my character and my ability to be crafty. They picked the wrong guy. "What if" I had members in my family that worked for the Government and needed my safety to be SAFE for theirs? Please Mozilla get down to the bottom of this for me. Tell me I have an over active Imagination, so I can laugh at myself. If not tell me other wise, I WILL cooperate to catch this thief. Let us lay a trap. They are blocked from this screen, I have a green lock on it in the corner. That is, if my suspicions are right. Thank You.

I set up Sync on my PC a few weeks ago in preparation for purchasing an iPad. I now have it.

I have just installed Foxbrowser and I am putting the code it gives me when I 'Paira Device'. The app just has a message saying it 'Cannot Setup Sync' pop up. I've been searching and I cannot find any results on this specific problem. The device shows that it cannot setu[ after I enter the code into FF on my PC, so it has some sort of connection.

I have seen a mention of sign in to sync. I don't have that option, just Tools>Setup Sync. I guess I would explain it that I have set the browser to look like its older version.

Thanks for any help.

Hi, I get repeatedly crashes.

Test on add-on don't give results, too all recommanded checks.

On reports I get for all recently : since 28 version installation but I got error with quite all versions from 17.1 esr

The same shape error in Raw Dump has these common content :

OS|Windows NT|6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 CPU|x86|GenuineIntel family 6 model 42 stepping 7|8 Crash|EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_READ|0x10|0 Module|firefox.exe|28.0.0.5186|firefox.pdb|565F6F37B8D94EF4838ED774CDAA63012|

Sometimes "Module|UnlockerHook.dll" with various adresses can appear in the stack before Module|firefox.exe

It is quite impossible to work normally for last four months. The more stable was 17.1 esr used last year, but it is not possible to remain longer on this version. I have send always a report (there are may be 450 crashes since three month). No crashes in protected mode. Add-ons have been inactivated successively without success. As I am informatician, it seems that FF is unable to access memory (running win7x64 sr1), because the crashes occur when a quite new heavy page is loaded or reloaded, but sometimes during restart or at the first click when restart is successful. To suppress active pages (any) seems to stabilize. Sometimes js seems to have a lack of resources because some functions are no more able to activate (as in firebug). After crashes memory used by system (out of counts, not available not declared) increases. As I have 16Go I restart the system when I have lost 3 or 4 Go... I have no crash with any other software.

Reading others crash report data I have not found anything, but I am not sure to read correctly.

Hope to find a solution
