Firefox consistently locks up for minutes at a time when Huffington Post updates. This has been going on for at least 18 months and it does not appear there is a serious effort to address the problem. I have read though all the forum questions and replies and I do not see a serious effort on the part of Firefox to address this. It is causing significant enough problems to make using Firefox an issue. What is the problem and will be be fixed at some point?

Basically the PDF just loads indefinitely without ever bring up the preview. I have reinstalled and updated all relevant programs and I have tried using the Firefox native PDF reader but this does not load the PDF either. I can load PDFs from Chrome.

Hi! I was trying to make an online purchase & the yellow PayPal selection button wasn't visible. I called the company to make sure they accepted PayPal, (they do), & they opened their browser & made a test purchase so they could tell me where the PayPal button was. On their browser the PayPal button was there...on mine it wasn't. I closed out Firefox & restarted it, but the PayPal option button never appeared. I decided to try to make the purchase using IE & the PayPal button was right where the company told me it would be!!! Do I have to change one of my settings somehow?? I avoid IE like the plague...I even deleted the Desktop shortcut for it on my laptop...I had to do a search so I could use it to test this issue. I really don't want to have to use IE for anything!!! Help will be greatly appreciated!! Thanks very much  :) Nuts4Mutts

Firefox Sync not keeping devices bookmarks, ect the same.

So I have Firefox on a main O/S Windows 8.1 & a second boot Ubuntu 12.04. I've set up my sync account on Windows 8.1 & when I set it up on Ubuntu with the recovery key it will import the bookmarks, add ons, preferences ect. The problem is if I add bookmarks in Windows Firefox & then boot Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Ubuntu, if I add a new bookmark on Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Windows. They both keep their own instance of my sync but won't share it & share the changes.

Am I supposed to select a setting at the Sync Options to tell it to keep both the browsers the same & to also let each other add bookmarks? If you know what I mean ;)

Standard import function only copies over the first few links from IE 11 Favorites... So I read the explanation about first exporting the Favorites as HTML and then importing that file to Firefox. But the export function doesn't appear on IE window, under File or Internet Options or anything.

i love firefox. not once has it crashed...where internet explorer crashes 4 times an hour! :) i am submitting this as I had A LOT of add-ons and one ended up being a phishing scam...it would cause key words to be underlined and on mouse-over it would show a link to some advertisement, and when hitting the question mark in the pop up box it went to navlink.com. i believe believe it or not that it was the add on - do not track me.or disconnect me. one of the two. i ended up deleting everything and reinstalling Firefox as i also had the all-in-one sidebar...it used to display my downloads as they were downloading but then that stooped working.. i don't know what i did but i will be more careful when adding things and whatnot.. . i backed up my bookmarks using both the backup and export options. however upon reinstalling, i could not load my bookmarks back into Firefox. this was very disappointing as i had ALOT of bookmarks. i am sending this plus more in the support section. but even though i lost hundreds of bookmarks, i will still be continuing to use Firefox. chrome became so ridden with garbage that i deleted that too! it's too bad Mozilla still doesn't design Netscape. that's the first browser i ever used, version 1.2 waaayyyyy back in the late 80's i believe

all in all, thanks for the best browser there is. if i could send my bookmarks file it generated and see if it can be fixed so I can import/restore it that would be great~!! watson.danny@live.com

Because I think Mozilla is all about open source and stuff, but can Mozilla have things open source, to make their own browser by using their tools? And if they do it, do they have to put under Mozilla's name too or not?

A couple times today, while seeking support from Mozilla - I was directed to internal Mozilla instructional pages that do not load. I get "No Server Found" errors on these internal pages.

One time I was seeking info about an "add on", the other time I was seeking support for the "Set Up Sync" function. I have NEVER been able to get my Sync functions (between my desktop PC & android phone) to work. When I click the "Show Me How" link, I was directed to: https://services.mozilla.com/sync/help/manual-setup (This is one of my "No Server Found" pages.)

Also, I am having serious "stability" issues with Firefox, that have gotten progressively worse over the past month or two. Firefox freezes up and cannot be shutdown. Sometimes it happens while I have many tabs open, sometimes while Firefox is being minimally used or even idle. I can only close Firefox via the Task Manager. (I hate to admit this, but I went over to the dark side today, and set up IE on my desktop to use when Firefox crashes.)

I do not have "No Server Found" issues on any other web sites, only Mozilla support pages. Could these two issues be related? Can anyone offer me advice on one or both issues?

Thank you for reading my post, and thanks for any advice you may offer.
