Firefox has worked fine until this morning. Now it crashes instantly on startup, even in safe mode and even after uninstalling and reinstalling a fresh copy. I've captured many crash reports, including ID=6c53dcc4-7ca3-4877-a074-9ed522151003

My only workaround so far is to start Firefox as administrator. No idea what to try next...

I have set up Firefox to bring up three specific tabs. THAT just works fine.

But here's the problem: When I open a new Firefox window, those three tabs come up again. That's not what I want. I want another, single page to come up. A blank page would be fine, as well. But I don't want the three tabs coming up fresh every time I press Ctrl-N.

PC is 5 months old, Firefox worked well until the last couple of weeks when I noticed I couldn't open a tab in the usual way. Upon further investigation I have found that I can open a new tab by right clicking on a link. I have never had "ask" tool bar on this machine. I have refreshed Firefox and ran in safe mode. Neither of these helped. Also over the last week firefox has tried to open a new tab from a link (right clicking) and it has hung twice forcing me to restart the PC.

Could the developers of Firefox please re-implement the feature that enables setting a specific webpage for newly opened tabs (as prevented from 2015-Oct-03)?

4 Oct 2015. This question is directed more to developers than users. With the introduction of New Tab Controls an hour or two ago, the about:Config, browser.newtab.url setting no longer works. I found this feature very useful, and don't much like new tabs displaying my favorite pages as icons (or otherwise), or just being blank. If this question does reach the developers (people to whom I and every user of Firefox are indebted, albeit not financially), could they consider adding a New Tab Control setting that provides the option of setting a selected page that need not necessarily be the Home Page? Thank you.

I have tried all of the fixes in past threads, but FF new update 41 refuses to open new tabs in Google.ca. I have been to about:config and through newtab, adjusted columns and rows to 1 each, tried about:home for the URL, as well as the full URL for Google.ca. I am not using Chrome. No add-ons, no extensions, no profile.js file, no recent programs added without my knowledge. My new tabs come up with Google.ca as a thumbnail, so I have to click on it. This is madness! Google is shooting itself in the foot. Can anyone help me solve this, please?! Thank you.

Using FF; Windows 7: (1) I am NOT tech oriented and I indavertently left the "stay signed on" box checked. Now my username always appears automatically and I don't want it to, but I can't find how to fix that ANYWHERE. (2) How do I keep that "stay signed on" box unchecked permanently. (3) Before I came to this page, there was a page that asked me for my email address, etc. It said that email address was already in use. No kidding; it's me. It was trying to create a new account, so I finally just used a different email address & set up a new one.

Since I've updated, Firefox crashes on startup. I've followed all the different scenarios like re-installing, deleting certain files etc. but still end up with Firefox crashing. It does in fact run in Safe Mode and I took that opportunity to turn off all my add-ons. Didn't help. My guess is that Firefox is allergic to something on my laptop.

This started recently, possibly after a recent update when I was asked to reset default settings. When entering text into input fields, I type 1-3 characters and the debugger pops up in the Inspector window. There does not seem to be any correlation to the URL or to the characters that I've typed.

When I installed Firefox update, I checked my plug ins & it said to update Adobe Flash Player, which I did. I've also checked the version installed, to be sure it updated properly. It did. I have the latest version available - 19.0 something. However, when I restarted Firefox & double checked the plug ins page again, it has not registered the update & seems to think I have version 18.0 something. Odd, as the version showing for Shockwave Flash on the Add Ons page is correct (19). HELP !!!!!

Crime Watch which puts ads in Firefox seems to have installed itself somewhere, it does not show up in my programmes and I have used a recommended removal but it is still showing ads. Even turning off add ons doesn't stop it. The last suggestion of the list of ways to get rid of it was to uninstall firefox and reinstall, but of course the site just tells me firefox is up to date when I try to download it and I need to download it before taking it off. The recommendations were to use Adwcleaner, then Malawarebytes and then HitmanPro. Can you help me please Margaret/gencat
