I have some Ajax in a test program that accesses a local file. This worked fine until I updated to Firefox 10. Does Firefox 10 block access to local files even if they have the same source location? Chrome has this problem but I can overcome it by launching Chrome with the "--disable-web-security" option. Is there a similar option in Firefox 10?

How do I stop Firefox 11 from starting automatically on login? It starts automatically on one of the user accounts on my less-than-week-old Mac Air (OS X 10.7.3) is started, but not the other. I have investigated the usual suspects and found none of them guilty: 1. The options associated with the icon do NOT have “Open at Login” checked; 2. The Login Items for this user does NOT include a Firefox entry; 3. Some have suggested a PopClip link, but I’ve not installed that; 4. Some have found Firefox installed in an old installation of TOR Browser/Vidalia, but I haven’t installed that either; 5. It is not an issue with the “Reopen windows when logging back in” option on the logout screen – it opens whether the box is checked or not and whether Firefox is open or not at logout; 6. System Preferences -> General -> “Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps” is NOT checked.

Any ideas?

I keep getting the unresponsive script warning. This has been happening for three days now. It happens on all websites. I have uninstalled and reinstalled three times now, once completely and am working off a 'clean' version now - no extensions, no profile, no bookmarks. I've extended the run time in about:config. I don't know what else to do apart from use a different browser.... which I don't want to do. Any suggestions? I've run Firefox for years and never had this :-(

Duplicate of /questions/976177 Firefox constantly freezes on my Mac, although I've installed the latest version and tried all suggested fixes - without success. (locking)]. aw

I'm using an iMac, system 10.9. My problem is that Firefox 25 launches correctly and displays Google (which I've chosen as my start page), but that whenever I go to to a web page, Firefox hangs/freezes. For instance I can go to the BBC site, but once there FF hangs/freezes. Then it won't respond to any clicking or commands, and I have to force-quit.

Firefox has even done this in the Mozilla help pages !

I've tried several other "fixes", all to no avail. Besides, a fix or workaround should not be necessary -it isn't with other browsers. And I've trashed FF more than once, doing a clean reinstall (yes, I've been careful to also trash any associated file, using Appcleaner).

The problem has been there in every version of FF I've tried in the last four years. Version 3.5 worked well but all the subsequent versions have caused this problem. Why ?

As I said, other browsers work, and do so without needing any "fixes". So they work, and so does my computer. The problem is with Firefox, that obviously has a flaw somewhere. I'd love to know what it is.

I support a local government environment. After the latest updates to firefox 25.0.1 and Java 7 update 45 we are facing a lot of difficulties accessing sites provided by the central government. In some cases the problems are solved by re-installing java or by allowing the plugins to run. In a particular case we can access the full functionality (java script links and even pics) of a site using an administrator account but cannot using a simple user. Enabling java deployment toolkit and java(tm) platform plugins for the site did not work. The computers facing the problem run Windows XP Pro + SP3.

The same issue does not appear when running google chrome...

I don't know where it came from, but there is a box full of what appear to be Firefox control icons over to the right of my Google search field on the toolbar. There are two rows; on the top row, they are all greyed-out, if looks like 'back', 'forward', 'reload page', 'cancel', 'downloads', and so on (they're icons, not words, but I think that's what they correspond to). On the bottom row, there's one like a clock, and one like 'favorites', those are in white. Clicking on any of this stuff does nothing, and if I double-click and hit 'customize', the whole box behaves as a single object, but I can't delete it.

I'd be happy to add a screen shot, but I don't know how. I looked around the Mozilla pages and the internet, but I don't see anything like this. Sorry! Thanks!
