Since 28th of January, Firefox keeps crashing after 15-20 minutes of usage, if not more often. It doesn't depend on anything, it can crash on opening new page, or being idle. Tried updating all plugins, Flash, Shockwave, etc. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox (without deleting profile). Updated Windows. My browser usage habits include having a LOT of tabs open and I mean really LOTs, but that was not a problem until recent events and I already closed like half of tabs that were open.

Here are several reports from 28.01 till today.

Firefox lost it's mind when it comes to upgrading - At least where Flash Player is concerned. What broke?

Up until 2 versions of flash player back, everything worked fine. A new version came in from Adobe, I'd say go ahead and upgrade, it upgraded, I restarted Firefox and everything worked.

Now it takes 3, 4 or more attempts to upgrade Adobe. Firefox thinks I am running LINUX now, when I hardly know how to SPELL "linux". So I change that and download the "correct" version. Then that completes and gets stuck on this screen with NO OBVIOUS EXIT MECHANISM: "Hey buddy! you wanna buy a subscription to BOX LIGHTER AND ONLINE PAINTING (or somesuch). The only apparent choice is to click the BUY button. I have to close the window.

Now I am back at the screen telling me that I have a dangerously outdated version of Flashplayer: mozilla

Check Your Plugins Keeping your plugins up to date helps Firefox run safely and smoothly.

Well, updating the plugins broke more than I even know. Now I get error messages saying it can't install because JAVA is dangerously out of date. Well, it IS NOT. I updated it more than 2 versions of ADUBBY FLUNK PLANER ... sorry ... adobe flash player ... upgrades back. Now Firefox is pretty useless, because what was running JAVA just fine 1-1/2 hours ago will not run b/c JAVA is "out of date". But, oddly, the plugin check and update screen doesn't say a thing about it. Just that jinxed snail player.

I like firefox. I've always used it and chose to use it above MSIE and "chrome". Now, it seems, I have no choice but to use either of the formers.

Oh, yes. I did re-install Firefox, and currently running V.35.0.1.

Hello, In file http://www.bankofgreece.gr/BogEkdoseis/oikodelt201412.pdf there are differences when using Firefox's viewer to show the document and adobe acrobat, especially in colors. Way to reproduce the problem: 1. Open the above page in firefox 2.Save the file 3. Open it with adobe acrobat and see page 12. The line in the right diagram in firefox is grey where as in Adobe acrobat is green.

You can also see the problem in http://www.bankofgreece.gr/BogEkdoseis/oikodelt201412.pdf

I could select adobe acrobat plugin to show the file but I wonder the cause of the problem.

Thank you

I had to change my motherboard and processor the other day and immediately after that incident, I seem to have lost all of my passwords. The reason I'm certain of this is because the only password that's saved is from a site I only used after this incident. The only thing I'd done recently other than change hardware was update firefox to 35.02.

Even after restoring my key3.db to a version 4 months old, not a single difference was made. The password manager still only has that one single username and password, rather than the many I had before. Other than the change of hardware, the boot partition and drives are the same and nothing was uninstalled. Also, I'm not sure if it's related, but my logins.json file is 1KB while the logins.json.corrupt is 109KB. Were the passwords saved in there? What should I give a try?

EDIT: Solved with a post by Chris at http://codeverge.com/mozilla.support.firefox/saved-passwords-disappeared-on-update/2006894 I'm not sure how to close this ticket, so feel free to

I am using an extension called Black YouTube Theme (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/black-youtube-theme/). Currently Whenever I start Firefox using restore session from last time. For any YouTube links I have open it pops open a little JavaScript Application box, one per link, which returns "Error: document.domain is null". That is the only problem I have, so I was wondering does anyone know how to disable JavaScript error messages using about:config?

I have a basic html form embedded in a Wordpress footer widget to collect email addresses and I can place the cursor in the input field (there is only one input field) but I cannot see what I'm typing. If I enter an invalid email address (without being able to see what I'm typing) and hit the submit button I can see on the error page (since a valid email address is required) what I originally typed. The URL is askdrkyle.com and the form is on the left hand side of the footer.

I do not have this problem in any other browser.

Thanks!

To my knowledge, all sites except Twitter work properly. When I read tweets that contain hashtags I see a small space where the hashtag should be ( I can't see the # sign either). If I try to compose a tweet, it disappears as soon as I enter a character from the alphabet unless I place a number infront of the # ie. 3#DOT.

I have tried different dictionaries and settings but nothing works... Google Chrome works fine. One other item that I would like to know about is... with this high res screen, I have to increase the size by 20%.. Isn't there a way to make that a default?

I can go into chrome without any issues and watch any video without any problem. the second i get into firefox nothing works. i have had this issue on and off for years. i really do not see why you cannot fix this if everybody else can. i have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox and flash player multiple times. nothing seems to work. I am truly getting really tired of this same problem year after year, i stay with firefox because you are privacy conscience and are being more so consistently. i do not know what other details to tell you other than this just keeps happening and it is making it very tough to do anything on firefox when i cannot use a simple thing such as flash player. as i said, if the other browsers can fix this i see no reason why firefox cannot year after year. i hope there is a simple fix for this problem because it has basically halted a lot of my work on the net as i will no longer use google or microsoft. thank you

I'm running Firefox 35.0.1 on Windows 8.1 and when I start it up it takes a while to load my home page, Google.com. I've set the home page link to just google.com and with the default extensions it adds when the page loads.

I've changed the home page to github to see if that loads faster and it does. Also, I've checked google.com on Chrome just to make sure it wasn't Google's server. Other sites are running fine and Google will load quickly if I hit the home page after going to another site. I disabled extensions just to see it that was causing the issue as well.
