My computer is configured, that on boot-up, my Google Calendar is opened in my Fire Fox browser. However after a recent Windows 7 update, it now opens duplicate Google Calendars. (The URL is identical except for case in some parts) This then requires me to close the duplicate calendar before working on the default calendar. How can I eliminate the duplicate.

After firefox update cannot have program automatically open to right website

Up to before v.43, our emergency alert program would open Firefox at http://cad.chp.ca.gov. Now Firefox opens to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/43.0.1/firstrun/learnmore/, and disappears within a few seconds. Accepting "Try the new private browsing" does not solve the problem.

What has changed so we can modify our code?

Thank you for help.

I'm running OSX and every time I open Firefox, it freezes up. I can't type in the URL area, can't click on bookmarks, and can't select the profile folder. It's completely stuck with no functionality. I tried to uninstall and reinstall to no avail. I tried using Safari and it works fine but I want my Firefox back!

Thank you for your time and consideration :)

I am using Firefox 43.0.2 (43.0.1 would always crash few seconds after start) on Windows Vista. I have tried uninstalling Firefox and making clean install. When I try to visit any URL (like www.google.com or about:healthreport) nothing will happen, no error message, no loading, just a very short loading icon hints that Firefox have tried something. Only URL like about:config and about:license seams to work.

Hi, all of a sudden my FF crashed and won't open. I keep getting the crash reporter. I uninstalled and downloaded a new copy - same problem. It won't even create a troubleshooter file.

I have Panda antivirus software (free) and that just stopped working too. FF fix, or is this maybe a virus?

When I start Firefox, the window opens up and "connecting" appears top left of screen, as normal... but it won't connect. It will not connect to homepage, or any other bookmarks, or clicking on a link in email. I have uninstalled and reinstalled (twice), but still have the problem. I am having trouble uploading screenshots. Thanks.

Two days ago firefox stopped working for me. When I click on the the icon nothing happens, the only way to get it to launch is to run the installer. I've tried all the institutions on the this site to fix the issue and nothing works. I've tired to completely remove everything related to firefox then install it, this doesn't work. My guess there is a corrupt file somewhere that I need to remove but I've tired every where I can think of.

This just started yesterday. I have flash player plugin version 20.0.0.306 installed. When I set it to "Never Activate" in Tool\addons my homepage loads fine when I open Firefox. When i have it set to "Ask to activate" or "Always activate" my homepage will not load and i get a blank New Page. I reloaded firefox from scratch and reinstalled the flash player from the adobe update website. Kinda weird but I am wondering if this has been addressed or if anyone else it seeing this. i am running 64 bit version of FF on Windows 7 Pro. FF version is 44.0. Thank you !

In general, Firefox was running very poorly, freezing up at times while loading sites. I once ran RogueKiller and it detected a rootkit affecting Firefox. Following this I decided to reset Firefox. I was also prompted to update Firefox to the latest version, which I also did. After this, Firefox does not open a window upon starting the program. It will show that it is opening on the task bar (I have Windows 7) and then after about 15 seconds the icon appears as if it is not open. Upon checking in Windows Task Manager, it shows that FF is running, albeit in the background. I have tried various anti-virus/malware scanners (Spybot, AVG, Sophos Virus Removal Tool, Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware) and other scanners (TDSS Killer, CCleaner, AdWCleaner) but nothing malicious is detected (even in safe mode). I suspect some kind of deeper infection which is evading all these attempts. FYI Internet Explorer is also affected by the same problem. Thank you so much for any kind of help.

The title is pretty much self explanatory. Whenever I reboot my computer (Ubuntu 16.04), firefox loses ALL of its data. Any persistent cookies are removed, any customizations I make to the title bar are removed, my extensions are gone, and I have to sign into sync again. It's like a completely fresh installation.

Thanks for your help!

Firefox suddenly stopped working today. When I open it, it tells me that it's already open (which it isn't) and that it can't find or load my profile. If I go directly to profiles and create a new one, I can open it, but all my bookmarks are gone. And then if I close and try to reopen it, the same thing happens--I can't open it and get the same error message.

One thing I figured out is that the profile can’t be read only, and I discovered that mine was (why I don't know), but when I try to uncheck read only, it instantly reverts back to read only, which is weird.

I’ve tried reinstalling Firefox several times, but it’s always the same, even with a brand-new installation, I can’t open it and get the same error message. What can I do if reinstalling doesn’t even work?
