Whenever I return to my PC Firefox has disappeared. I then click on my Firefox icon and obtain a screen stating 'This is embarrassing.....etc.) I then have to click 'Restore' or 'Close' which takes me back in.

Firefox also sometimes disappears while I am working and I'm left looking at my screensaver - I have to repeat the same process as above.

Is it possible to obtain a stable version that does not keep dropping off the screen?

When I reinstalled firefox, each time I open a website it bring this annoying security question.

This Connection is Untrusted You have asked Firefox to connect securely to support.mozilla.org, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure. What Should I Do? If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

Please help HOW TO REMOVE THIS SECURE CONNECTION

For about a month now the version of firefox on my work pc, the "new tab" tiles can no longer be updated. I can move existing tabs. I cannot add new tabs. Dragging a bookmark over an empty tile opens the link in the "new tab". If I accidentally delete a tile, it is gone forever. Firefox does not prompt me to restore it. I am running the current ver. of Firefox. I even uninstalled/re-installed to see if that had an effect, it did not. Windows7, Firefox 27.0.1

This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to xxxx.xx.xxx, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

xxxx.xx.xxx uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Observed on the steam marketplace (on activation some older tabs will load an item instead of what used to be a search query listing multiple items, page url changed and no back button available).

For example: The tab url was http://steamcommunity.com/market/search?q=RPG+Maker+card

Browser was then closed.

Sometimes when I come back to that tab in another session the url changes to one of the listings inside (a page that was visited) with no way of going back to the old url.

In this example steamcommunity.com/market/listings/753/220700-No%20Transparency?filter=RPG%20Maker%20card

Also note the %20 instead of spaces.

This happens to about 50% of my tabs. (I have over 50 open) I do not know if this applies to other website, but I would assume it would.

Is this a known issue?

I have installed Aurora (version 29.0a2, Australis interface) on my PC running Windows 8.1 64-bit. When I run Aurora in Windows 8 Touch mode (using the Windows 8 button in Aurora) it just shows the app's splash screen and disappears. Needless to say, Aurora is set as my default browser.

Is this a known bug and would be solved soon, or is it just happening with me?

UPDATE: I found this error message in the Windows event logs: "Activation of the app DefaultBrowser_NOPUBLISHERID!1E05176855CC7D2F for the Windows.Launch contract failed with error: Access is denied."

I bought a new laptop its an Asus V550C with windows 8 64bit. Ever since I installed Firefox I have had an issue when I use Google. When I go to type in the search box I can get maybe 4 letters in and it will freeze up (Firefox will display "not responding). I have to leave it alone for 10-20 seconds then it will come back but it is a constant problem. It will then usually follow with a script error message asking me to "continue or stop script". I know the description is vague any help would be greatly appreciated. This is a constant problem it happens literally every time I use Google. If it makes a difference it will freeze the minute the search suggestions show up after I type even after it comes back when I continue to type it will usually freeze again before I can actually complete the search. This is an extremely annoying and frustrating problem. I figured this would be the best place to look for answers. Thanks a lot in advance any help at all is greatly appreciated. -Matt

I've seen similar posts, but none that are exactly like the problem I am experiencing. Since updating to FF27 (I'm on a MBP with OSX 10.7), I will go to a page and am unable to scroll down for a short amount of time. Usually it's about 3-5 seconds, and then the 2 finger scroll functionality kicks back in. It's not choppy, just delayed. It seems to happen more on pages with many images on it. I would assume that it had to do with the loading of the images, however, it will happen if I hit the back button to a page that is already cached. I really don't want to switch to a different browser, I've been a dedicated user of Firefox since 2004 and would really like to keep this relationship going : )

I just ran into this the other day, but it's become a major issue. The exceptions I enter into the popup blocker don't persist from session to session; as long as at least one instance of Firefox remains open the exception list is there, but after I close Firefox and reopen it I have no exceptions left. I only need a handful of exceptions, but I don't want to have to type them in every time I access those web sites!
