Hello,

In Windows 8, after updating to Firefox 83.0 64-bit, when I open any web page, the following error message appears:

X Display driver stopped responding and has recovered Display driver Intel Graphics Accelerator Drivers for Windows 8(R) stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

And then:

X Application has been blocked from accessing Graphics hardware Application Firefox.exe has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware.

In device manager, I updated the driver and it stated the driver is up to date.

Should I revert back to 82.0.3?

Best regards

When I upgraded to Firefox 83, I discovered that the screenshot function, which previously appeared with a simple right click, had disappeared. I did some reading, and have tried the 'page actions' drop-down' menu, and the 'about:config' modification, but neither, frankly, did a thing. So, what gives? And why me? instead of, say, you? And, oh yeah, a solution would be cool, too...

I just updated from 55 to 84. Immediately the video driver started crashing. After three crashes, the video driver bans Firefox from using video equipment. It still works but the CPU usage in YouTube is up and the fan is spinning all the time, which it didn't do before the update. I reinstalled video card driver. I reinstalled video accelerator driver. I reinstalled the damn firefox too and then I did a clean installation. NOTHING works. Any advice? Or is it yet another "unexplained" problem that will never be solved?

I'm not able to pick an item from a 'dropdown' list of choices. The list flashes on and off so quickly that it doesn't pause long enough to make a selection or it doesn't show the dropdown list at all. This was not an issue for me before FF 19.

Hi, I have just brought a new laptop running windows 8 and have installed Firefox. My old laptop was running XP and I didn't have a problem running Firefox on it. I am trying to install Kindle for PC on my new laptop but I keep getting the message "this link needs to be opened with an application". I've never seen this message before on any web browser that I have used. I have "googled" the question and some suggestions are: > reloading Firefox-no point I've just loaded it > downloading through Internet Explorer-which I don't want to do as I want Firefox my browser of choice > Some talk of changing profiles-which I haven't a clue about.

Any help in plain and simple English and assuming I have no prior knowledge (I'm a car driver rather than a mechanic) will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I was able to access this website prior to 2 weeks ago. I can access this website on other computers without issues, and I can also access all other websites on this computer.

The following is what is listed in the navigation bar when I get the error message.

http://iphantom.com/wisd/restricted.html?fn=Default&FP=l&ip=10.201.5157&ibip=66.206.97.9&ldu=l&re=0&bu=wps.prenhall.com

I noticed it says wisd/restricted, but I can log on to this website using my wisd computer without issue, and I get the same error message at my home/other locations. So I know that it is not restricted. I have used all the other suggestions "no proxy", shut down firewalls, but nothing has worked.

Any help with this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Cody

Problem: There is 1 website which I had downloaded a pdf from in the past, now this download window continues to popup every couple minutes with a window for me to download again. When this download windows opens I have to click "cancel" repeatedly to get it to close.

I use to have this issue about a year ago, but I found the problem with a program and uninstalled it. But I am not finding anything like that this time.
