A few days ago I started having an issue with streaming media (youtube seems unaffected, vids in fb also are unaffected) When I'm playing something, and switch tabs to do other things while media plays in the background, the video freezes but the audio continues to play. This does not happen when playing vlc outside of firefox. I have cleared my cache and cookies, cleared network cache, eliminated all addons and extensions, and got rid of flash. Nothing is working. I can't find any other resources to help. I'm using windows 7, have checked for malware and viruses (none), everything is updated.

3 or 4 days ago, a popup came on my Facebook page saying that Firefox needed to be updated or fixed, sorry I don't remember what it said. I clicked on it and kept on the page with no problems. Got off the a page about an hour or so later. Came back later and tried to play a couple of games and they wouldn't load or took forever to load also a yellow lock showed up which was always green before. Went to the Monzilla site and tried to figure out what to do. Reinstalled Firefox as suggested and seemed to work after that. Came back later and tried to get on again and had the same problem. Again reinstalled Firefox, but this time it didn't repair it. Since that time, it hasn't worked to completely open at all. I have tried several times to reinstall since and still won't work or install partly. Have also run Norton complete system scan several times including Norton's eraser still didn't do anything. Been using Firefox for years and never have any problems before, I'm at a total loss.

As you can most likely see, I'm not a computer wiz, but, do use it several times a day.

Updated Firefox to 49.0.2 this AM. Since then... I can log into eBay.com, but NONE of the photos come up. I cannot log into www.kiva.com at all. I do have the ABP Ad Blocker add-on activated, but deactivating for eBay web site gets me ads but not photos. I am assuming the setting for the prior Firefox version carried over into the newest version, but I do not know how to confirm this.

In the meantime, I am finding this new version a waste of my time...

I did try to go to www.isup.me/ per another user's string w.r.t. version 49, but that web site seems down as well (or cannot get into it if Firefox is tying up connection). Strange response message there, too, about google.com being down.

Upgraded to 49.0.2 this morning. whenever I use either the "Back" or "Forward" navigation buttons (or whenever forward is available) the drop-down menu of sites is displayed and won't disappear until I click somewhere on the page in question.

This is annoying yes, but it also makes me wonder why I am still fighting with FF.

Each time I go forward or back a page (using the left and right arrows at the top left of firefox, next to the address bar), the pulldown history automatically opens. I am NOT right-clicking either arrow, and yet, this occurs.

This just suddenly began happening (before AND after updating from 49.01 to 49.02). I made NO changes to FF, nor updated any app/extension.

It's annoying and frustrating, because each time I go forward/back a page, the pulldown opens, then I have to click to close it, then click to continue with that page or go forward/back another page.

I hope I've explain this sufficiently.

Please help . . . annoyance/frustration level is high. ;-)

Not sure how to describe this...

On my Windows 10 system with Firefox 49.0.2, clicking the bookmark button results in nothing happening. It looks like a bookmark is taken and passed from the star button to the book button (ie. bookmark). However, when I go look for the bookmark, I cannot find it in the bookmark file. I do not see any error messages. I've checked the bookmark file to ensure that it is *not* read-only -- in fact, I deleted it and recreated it. I've also disabled the only extension that I think is doing anything with bookmarks (PinIt for Pinterest). Still the bookmarking doesn't work.

Any ideas what else to try? Reinstall Firefox from scratch??

I have been trying for some time to install add-on for LastPass and TrueKey, both password management programs.

Each time I try I get the connection failure message and nothing gets installed. Is it a problem with Moz servers? I have found nothing in the public forums except a lot of frustration that this error is occurring after being reported so many times over such a long period.

If it cannot be resolved quickly, I will have to stop using Firefox, even though it is my preferred browser for general use. I need access to my password lists.

Every single time I either resize the window or scroll through pages, firefox does this strange visual glitch. It doesn't happen on chrome, internet explorer, or anything else. I have already tried downloading and updating firefox to its newest version, but to no avail. I'd really like an answer to this, as it is horribly annoying. Thank you.

In Firefox, embedded video on my favourite news site plays preceding ads ok, but then only plays sound, not the vision from the following news clip. None of the suggested solutions I've found seem to relate to this particular issue. However the same embedded video plays fine when using Chrome and Edge. Whilst this isn't a 'deal breaker', it is rather annoying. In other respects I much prefer Firefox and don't want to change.

Last night I could no longer play Bejeweled Blitz, Solitaire Blitz, or other Adobe Flash player based games on Facebook using Firefox. The games load but do not respond correctly. I have to click twice on the page to get the view to update. However, these games work correctly in Internet Explorer. This started for me on the night of October 19. I tried four different Flash games tonight, some from different developers, and none of them worked correctly. I tested a Flash game on a site outside of Facebook, and it worked fine.

I believe I have finally been able to register!! Anyhow my main question is how to get rid of the thumbnails on each new tab. Before updating firefox, each new tab just had google .co.uk which came up on each new tabl, now it just contains thumbnails which I do not want. I have done the about config bit, exactly how it was explained however nothing has changed at all. A technician who had gone into my computer had it set to having google on each new tab and not all those thumbnails. I know its simple when one knows how so any suggestions would be fantastic.
