I have tried EVERYTHING I could find on your website. Nothing has fixed the problem. Wife having same problems on her PC. Firefox just stops or hangs. Can NOT change websites, scroll up or down, nothing. We get "Unresponsive Script" and Unresponsive Plugin - Shockwave Flash. Where we purchased our PC's is saying all their customers are complaining. Do we have to go to Chrome to solve this problem?

I had got a new laptop a few weeks ago and immediately installed Firefox, which I've always used. The laptop has been really, really slow and I've had problems opening FB games and visiting any other pages with a lot of graphics. I actually thought it was a problem with the new laptop's graphics and was ready for calling Toshiba, but I decided to try Internet Explorer there and hey presto .. everything works just great!

Is there a compatibility issue with Windows 10/Firefox? I've tried resetting Firefox, etc, but to no avail.

Firefox 48.0

have tried to stop the plug-in, but the box disappears so fast. have managed to click it, but the message keeps coming up every minute. opened the Task Manager to try and see what it says. "Plug-in hang for Firefox (32-bit). I have checked that all my plug-ins are up to date. not sure what else to do. cannot use AOL or play any games on Facebook. The main content works on Facebook just not the games. this makes it rather tough to use Firefox because it's locked up or at least very very slow. you can only click on one thing and wait 60 seconds before browser refreshes. would appreciate it if you can help. until then I will be using Google Chrome but not willingly. :(

thanx, harumi52

How to enlarge firefox ui without enlarging websites?

I use 125% dpi in windows so everything is nice and big for me but Fx ui is too small. Fiddling with layout.css.devPixelsPerPx does help, wetting it to it's default -1.0 state makes every website and images on them out of proportion so it has to be manually set to 1.0, that makes websites display at 100% dpi but it also makes firefox display at smaller ui size. I want Firefox UI to become bigger, is there some addon for that or ADVANCE measure via about:config for this?

PS: I don't look for noob advices PS2: I'll add image comparing windows menu sizes and MS Edge Ui size with websites at 100% dpi compared to firefox. I wanted to upload the image here but since it doesn't work here is a proper link to imgur for it: http://i.imgur.com/79TQqDM.png

Form inputs are not working. using firefox 46.0 version, using safe mode or theme solutions, it doesn't solve my issues. They are still there. Form inputs cannot be clicked, you cannot edit these fields via click but as far TAB is working. via tab you can access to the input fields!

My laptop 2012 Sager with Windows 7 home premium edition. I am no longer able to connect to the internet with this laptop and I want to try and save/recover my Firefox bookmarks.. I sign up for sync today, but I don't know it that was too late to be of any good. I am going to do a clean install of Windows(to try and fix the connectivity issue) and wanted to try save my bookmarks before the drive is wiped. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I have a few dozen RSS feeds, among which askwoody.com and ghacks tech news. After updating to v48, the vast majority of them won't load. Not after a full reboot either, and deleting them and readding them does not help either.

Running W7 full updates, have tried disabling all addons, no joy.

Randomly after closing and re-opening Firefox (probably a hidden update) I found the dropdown menu for the URL bar is now the entire length of the window instead of just the horizontal length of the URL bar.

How do I get this back to the way it was? It's annoying when the window is maximized because all the sites are on the left side of the window now.

Firefox, on our family's Dell Latitude Windows 10 (business), cannot access internet: we receive "insecure connection" message. Firefox continues to work as usual with our desktop Windows 10 (business), connected to the router, and our netbook Windows 7 starter that uses the same wifi extender signal as the Latitude.

This problem began about a week ago and it did not change after we tried the following fixes: --uninstalled, reinstalled, and (today) updated Firefox. --followed Mozilla advice to access the Windows Firewall and change apps; a McAfee firewall blocks all changes in Apps. --followed Mozilla advice to reset McAfee firewall settings to defaults --called McAfee support, which tested the problem by having us disable the McAfee firewall. The Windows firewall still would not allow any changes and Firefox still rejects all attempts to access the web as "insecure connection."

I am sending this message from the desktop where I can access Mozilla, not from the problematic laptop.

Firefox has disabled one of my extensions that I no longer use, called Adobe Acrobat - Create PDF. It does not have a "remove" button in the dropdown menu for add-ons, nor does it show up in the list of extensions when I use the manual method in about:plugins recommended by Mozilla. Yet the disabled extensions still shows up in my list of extensions in the tools menu of Firefox. Any way to get rid of it??
