It seems Firefox is only allowing support for activeinbox up to 6.0.34. Activeinbox are aware of issues with this and have allegedly issued version 6.0.38 into the blackhole that is Firefox and are claiming that they're waiting for you to approve it. https://twitter.com/rivergateuk/status/809020714028269569 I've been pestering in them for weeks about this issue but they keep blaming Firefox for not authorising the update. You guys need your heads knocked together to get this sorted!!!

I was getting "Firefox not responding" message on many webpages I visited. Thirty seconds of downtime per. I refreshed Firefox, only to have it revert suddenly and without warning to the previous Firefox about eight hours later. This has happened twice.

I like Firefox because it eliminates following, information gathering, & all the hated things. I always open & run CCleaner when shutting down and noticed that when all is cleaned, Firefox has the most crap cleaned by a wide margin even though I have ABP add-on for FF.

Don't think this should be. How can I eliminate Firefox getting loaded down with crap while running? It's trashing up my machine & slowing FF down! What do I do???

Mac OS X El Capitan

Every time i start Firefox on all user accounts i get the message to restart to upgrade to version 50. I am already running version 50. When i go to the update history it says version 49 not 50. I have refreshed Firefox and downloaded a new version 50 and re-installed. Still no joy,

I keep getting the restart message every time Firefox is opened..

I have heard that its possible to delete the update history but its not obvious where it is

Does anyone else have the same problem?

If I have Firefox open and close the lid, it crashes every time I reopen it. Brand new machine running macOS sierra, never happened before on my old one using mountain lion. Sometimes the crash reporter itself crashes. I tried a reinstall and nothing happened. I did import my data (bookmarks, saved searches, passwords...etc) from my old computer. Could it be something corrupted from there? Or a plugin?

Plugins I have are: Flash, Silverlight, Acrobat, Creative Cloud, Bitdefender, Adblock Plus, uBlock, and Video Download Helper

For 2 different email name choices to create an email account, it gave me an "invalid name" error message, I don't care whether I have a FF email account or not. I just want to complete the installation & get the icon(s) on my desktop. This is a desktop I am installing with Windows 7, although I have had Mozilla FF on 4 or 5 other machines. This is not the 1st time I have run into this problem of not liking the email account name. Recommend that 1) provide some guidance on what is wanted or why the selection is not satisfactory; & 2) provide a way around the problem if an account is not desired or needed. Have not finish loading app's yet. Attempted FF acct: * Respond to: * .com
