When I run Firefox it just churns away and expires. Sometimes, if I just leave it, after ten/twenty minutes it will run v, v slowly. I have uninstalled and installed Firefox. I have the most recent version of Avira [14] and have removed Firefox and added to permitted applications, still no joy. Am writing this from another Browser. Also if I close Firefox and then try to restart I keep getting the Firefox is running... Getting seriously annoying now. I can only assume that Firefox is not quite up-to-date with Avira's version yet. The other browser runs without problem.

when using an Adobe flash page a small window appears requiring a download (usually 10kb) to get past the grayed-out covering of the flash item. Ad blocker can stop download window, but then the flash page will not appear for use. Quote:

"Adobe Flash Player Settings Local Storage cdn.arenaconnect.arkadiumhosted.com is requesting permission to store information on your computer. Requested: up to 10 KB Currently Used: 0 kb (with) Allow & Deny buttons "

Of course, the "request" makes it impossible to get past the Deny to the flash page.

For a long period of time (I'm sorry, I can't remember exact dates, but this problem is over the course of a couple years that it began, and in the past couple months it's gotten significantly worse.) I've had Firefox consuming large amounts of memory. Several years ago it was generally only half a gigabyte when this problem started, and my main annoyance was that flash would occasionally crash. But now over the past several months the issue has only gotten worse, as firefox typically consumes 1 gigabyte to nearly 2 gigabytes of memory sometimes with as little as 2 tabs open.

I generally have a maximum of 10 tabs open, 6 on average, which as far as I've seen from others using other internet browsers is actually not an incredibly high figure. If the memory troubles are starting up, closing flash heavy tabs like youtube or some advertisement heavy sites does seem to help, but it never, and I really mean never, fully alleviates the issue, it just decreases the amount of memory usage somewhat, slows the growth of memory usage until I visit a few more sites.

I run Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, have an incredibly huge amount of bookmarks (if that's the issue I'll cry), and am in the bad habit of only turning my computer off every few days. If I do not turn my computer off, close firefox when it's having memory troubles, and then re-open it when task manager claims the processes ended, the memory troubles start much faster than if I restarted my computer. I do not have many plugins or add-ons, primarily just java, flash, silverlight, and a few other things floating around. I have tried disabling all of them except flash several times and the problem still persisted. I admittedly, have never tried disabling flash player. All of my plugins and add-ons are up-to-date. I have followed the troubleshooting instructions such as booting up in safe mode to no avail.

I hope you can help, I really don't want to leave firefox and find some way to transfer my horrendous amount of bookmarks. Thanks much.

Also, on a side note, it is hilarious that your troubleshooter add-on does not have its author verified.

Hello,

I've been having this crashes for very long time and I can't bear it anymore. I appreciate any help. I tried to reinstalled firefox and rebuild my profile with add-on I usually use. I use quite a lot of add-on. It didn't help and then I think it might be my window. so I upgraded OS to 64 bit windows 7 (i was using windows 7 32-bit) and it still crashed. It happened usually when I have many tabs, over 20 tabs memory usage is over 1.2GB. My computer: Dual-core E6500 2.93GHz, 4GB ram, is it not powerful enough to run many add-on (just counted, I'm using over 40 add-ons) and many tabs?

My laptop doesn't have this problem. They are sync, so they have the same profile, but it is a i5 CPU and 8GB ram. my friend's firefox has much less add-on and running XP with 2GB ram and he can run more than 60 tabs without problem (he doesn't close tabs)

please let me know if you need any other information.

Cheers

Hello, I am writing as I am experiencing some issues with my favorite web browser after updating to Windows 8.1. Here are some details. I updated from Windows 8.0 to Windows 8.1 and ever since Firefox has run somewhat strangely. In particular when on sites with a lot of images like Facebook. It is like there is some kind of Flikr effect between the desktop and the images and between the images and the browser (almost like old 16 bit video games flikering). It is not too bad but it is an issue. I have tried resetting firefox and restarting the computer. I haven't tried a repair, and I haven't done an uninstall yet.

Flash will not work on certain web sites. I never had a problem before with flash on FF in the nearly 15 years that I have used FF. Just recently it stopped working for some reason and on certain sites flash will not work, NHL.com and a kid's website Herotopia being just two of them. I updated FF, Adobe flash to the newest version reinstalled them several times deleted all files that were stored on my laptop; i.e. profiles, saved bookmarks anything that I could locate and in all the user accounts and in the app data local, local low, and roaming folders. What is strange is that I cannot adjust the local storage setting for flash either. When I visit Adobe's site to view the Adobe Flash Player settings manager I can move the scroll bar but cannot check the: allow third party flash content to store data on your computer. I cannot do that on a website where flash will not work. When I try and changed it on any website it goes back to zero. Not sure it that is part of the problem. I tired numerous suggestions on the support pages here but nothing works. I even tried to this http://forums.adobe.com/message/4566499#4566499#4566499

The other odd thing is that I used to get the "Warning: Unresponsive script" prompt that says "A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete." sometimes when I would shop on Macy's.com. That would be the only site that this happened on. I know I have only limited tech knowledge but I have been trying to figure this out for a few days now and just do not know what happen. The only thing I can think of is that I have corrupt files somewhere that is causing this issue. I just updated to Windows 8.1 this evening in hopes that may help but to no avail. I would be very disappointing if I could not use FF or have to go back and forth using Chrome and FF. Sorry for the long posting but any solutions would be very much appreciated.

I answer questions in several different forums.

What I have tried so far, resetting firefox, running firefox in safe mode, restarting pc, restarting firefox

I can copy/paste in xp forums here:

http://www.xpforums.com/

as you can see above the link is not in link form the address would have to by typed in or copy/paste into the address bar of a new tab.

I generally can copy paste links with no problems except here in firefox.

can copy text between tabs and from documents to reply box, links from my documents will show up in reply boxes as links.

Not sure what other details are need but will provide whatever is needed.


Edit: it appears now that the link did post as a link. will test on the microsoft forums. 12:25 am

Edit 2: no it did not work after submission on the microsoft forum, still copy/paste as plain text.

In addition to the question below, another problem is not only are my email responses erased when the browser refreshes, the message itself is no longer available. I have to start from the beginning point in my email list, rather than remain on the once-opened email.

By the way, I have reset and restored my Firefox as a solution, which didn't help. I did this twice, following instructions. The process was tedious and I had to recover quite a bit of information, not to mention a problem with merged bookmarks. I'd like to avoid this solution, at all costs. Here's what I said earlier. Again, thanks for any/all help you can provide.

For the past several weeks, now, I've noticed that my browser "refreshes" the feed more frequently, so frequently, in fact, that any emails, forms, or survey questions that I am answering get wiped clean. This started happening with the latest update. I am unable to locate any setting in my preferences that will stop the constant refreshment (reload? page update?). This is also frustrating when trying to make purchases on line, and as I said, write emails, complete forms, complete surveys, etc.

Thank you in advance for quickly resolving this most frustrating problem? I use a Mac, and am running Mavericks. This problem was present with the previous OS, too. Thanks again!

I am running Firefox 26 on Windows 7. Last night Windows needed to do some security updates so I closed Firefox as I normally do by using the exit tab and let Windows go ahead with its updates. This morning I found that Firefox had been deleted. I looked to see that my sessionstore.js file from last night still existed and it does. When Firefox came up all of my tabs were gone, also my bookmarks, add-ons, etc. I clicked on "restore previous session" but nothing happens. I have a bookmarks file from last night in the bookmarks folder, and the sessionstore.js file is dated from last night when I closed Firefox in a normal manner. I'm stumped. Firefox didn't crash, I closed it as I always do before I allowed Microsoft to update Windows and reboot. What am I missing/doing wrong? I'm leaving this session open so that I can continue to have access to that sessionstore file, plus I have copied it to a folder I use for these kinds of disasters. This necessary windows update also deleted my MailWasher Pro program, changed the way that Windows Explorer operates and other "fun" surprises. Thanks Microsoft. It is barely possible that I can recreate my tabs and that would be hugely aggravating, but I have no way of re-creating all of my bookmarks. I need help.
