Firefox Hangs for 5 Seconds After Render on ASPX Page with Large Drop Down Lists

I am a web developer, and I have a page that is a middle tier interface for my site. It is not used on a daily basis, but it requires about 10 Drop Down Lists, that have about 1200 List Items Each.

The page loads very quickly and displays in firefox, then it becomes unresponsive for about 5 seconds. After that time you can work normally, but if it posts back and needs to render again, the same thing happens. I replicated on multiple PC's in version 25.0

Is this a known issue?

My pin tabs don't work. What's going wrong

My PINNED TABS don't work. This is what happens: Al SET 4 TABS [ie: SCU.net.au; , anz.com.au; telechoice.com.au, 131500,com,.au] {Have I set them in Tools/Internet opt… (read more)

My PINNED TABS don't work. This is what happens:

Al SET 4 TABS [ie: SCU.net.au; , anz.com.au; telechoice.com.au, 131500,com,.au] {Have I set them in Tools/Internet options in the past? Doesn't look possible in Fox. I PIN them now.} That's a credit union, a bank, my mobile account, and transportation guide. That means four handy helps under my finger tips.

 I also add Firefox

Four four years ... FOR four years, this worked admirably. That was on the old ACER, Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit.

WHAT'S DIFFERENT? Am I talking Windows 8? Are we into the Twilight Zone because I turned 63 last January? BUT ... they stopped working.

WHAT HAPPENS? The TRANSPORTATION link comes up with a STRING: 131500.com.au; ANZ.com.au; SCU.net.au;telechoice.com.au; mozilla.org.au FOX says is can't find this page. OR Transport says "Page does not exist" Which is all true.

"OK, you, I'll reset it again..." And I do and it happens again. Then I discovered this option.... get advice from the good people of Firefox at Mozilla.org

Let me know what you think. PS: To register, the Fox wouldn't let me have "ahq.mozilla" . Said it was "inappropriate". Must be Spanish for "Yahoo"? (Jesus). Why is that:

I want to change the program firefox uses to scan files I download. I think it doesn't have my AVG selected. When I download the EICAR test file, I don't get a virus alert. When I scan it afterwards AVG does recognise it as a virus. So I think something isn't set up right and because of that the scan on downloaded files isn't done by AVG.

i would like to know if there is an add on OR if it is possible to filter out news articles i do not want to see. for example, any article with the kardashians i will never be interested to see.

can the browser block these articles on major news websites like the bbc?

can something like this be developed by the open source community or by me if i teach myself how to do it?

or is mozilla firefox set in stone and cannot be edited?

Hi,

Facing this bug ever since I have installed firefox. Whenever I scroll up or down on any of the webpages the text/images on the page starts apperaing blurry. I continues to appear blurry unless I change a tab or perform some other action like move mouse pointer on text/image. Basically unless the entire page (displayed content) is redrawn it continues to appear blurry.

When you import bookmarks from Firefox or another browser into Firefox in a separate computer the bookmarks get imported fine, however their icons get disappeared. You have to click on every single bookmark in order to load its corresponding icon!

Note: The Google Chrome does not have this issue. The bookmark and their icons get imported to Chrome without further clicking on the imported bookmarks.

I am using a new Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro laptop with a 3200 x 1800 display. Though in general the high-DPI scaling works to keep text sharp for most webpages (something that cannot be said for Chrome or Opera), Flash does not scale with the rest of the website. For example, when I watch a Youtube video, the text, objects, etc. scale appropriately, but the buttons for the flash player are very small.

The virus took over FF mainly, I managed to clean the computer with the help of Bleeping Computer forum, with many cleaning tools, but the virus must have taken the form of some kind of hijacking add on that leached on to FF, and did not disappear. Only when I uninstalled ff including bookmarks and preferences, did it finally disappear (or so it seems, currently). Now I want to get my bookmarks back but I'm afraid once I log in to sync, somehow either through bookmarks or preferences the virus will return. I do have an older computer that is synced to my FF account, but this computer was turned off during the whole virus episode, so I'm also afraid when I start using that computer it will contract the virus as well. Is there a way to sync my FF to an older date, before I got that horrible virus? What can I do? Thanks a lot for all your help!!

When trying to upload an image, like f.e. .jpg, it does not show in the webbrowser. Nor do I get to see some images. When I upload a picture, I only get to see a small blank square. When trying to use IE I get the same problem, but only then I get to see a black X. Is there something wrong with my computer or my browser(s)? And if so, what can/should I do about it?

Everytime I wish to set up a Sync it goes to hell. I setup a Firefox Sync account, I select Pair a Device and I select Set up Firefox Sync on the other device. I click on I have an account and the link is dead. I check to find out if I am logged in or not. Search for Firefox sync page on google. (What is wrong with a bloody link FF/Mozilla??) All connected, try again = The same bloody result I select Pair a Device on the other (by now I just do this for kicks) and guess what, Create a New Account or I Have an Account. As I already have an account, I select I Have an Account... Dead link, Right click and I don't even get the expected menu of options on what to do with the webpage.

Have broken the camels back and would like an actual SOLUTION instead of Firefox's (probably correct if bug free and behaving) in my experience completely incorrect and unhelpful standard issue operating instructions.

any assistance (ASAP as I might be forced tp move to another more reliable browser) would be most gratefully recieved.
