Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

OK, we're all about Open Source. We're about non-profit.

Why then are we posting on Twitter and Facebook? I know Facebook is pretty big and "down with the kids" but Twitter is just hype; and commercial at that.

It's sending the WRONG message. Come on Mozilla, let's use a completely OPEN solution to micro-blogging and show the world that we support OPEN developers.


This happened

Not sure how often

I opened the Mozilla page

Recently sycronized Firefox to Propel Dial Up Accelerator and now Firefox will not allow www.yahoo.com to load as my homepage even though yahoo.com is properly set as the homepage and we had no problems before.

We recently moved from to an area where we can only get dial up. We purchased Propel Dial Up Accelerator and synchronized it with Firefox. Now Firefox fails to display our yahoo home page as it always did before. Once the page is finished loading we get just a blank page even though yahoo.com shows in the address bar. We cannot get to yahoo.com by any means. We have had to bookmark yahoo news page as only way to get any part of yahoo. We can access our email by going to mail.yahoo.com and signing in there. We have lost all access to our yahoo home page

URL of affected sites

http://www.yahoo.com/

I just started using Firefox a day or two ago. I didn't notice a problem with his browser while on Facebook until I attempted to change my profile pic. Now I can't even download a profile photo and none of the profile photos appear when I log on to Facebook.

It can't be a problem with my Security or Account Settings on FB because I share this PC with someone else in my household and they are having the same problem with their FB account.

Thanks.

negotiating the screen changes just to ask a simple question took me through 9 screen changes already!!! why the "screen testing"? I am not trying to get a part in a movie. Simply, when I checked "help", "forum",and now prompted to ask this as a "new" question although I saw in forums 450 or so users complained that their FF4 was not compatible as the last version of 3 was. Without taking 6 hours of searching 25 more screen changes: simply does anyone know if this will crash/hang/send error pages or damage our PC's to have FF5 and this TM security add-on together? thank you for your consideration of my question, and I apologize if my fonts show up on your side and are bothersome. I need them for my vision impairment

I've recently installed windows 8 on a VHD (my main OS is Windows 7) and I was wondering if it was possible to share the same firefox profile on both operating systems. I have the profile manager from ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/utilities/profilemanager/, but when I tried to make a new profile at the location of my main profile, it instead made a subdirectory under my main profile. Is there anything I can do to share the profile between the two? I could always use sync, but I would like to share my addons, if possible.

When I go to y8friv.com, a game site, many times when I click a link to a game, Firefox says "connection reset while loading" and I can't access the game. However, when I use Google Chrome, I can play games without a problem.

Also, when I use deviantart.com with Firefox, it interferes with Yahoo Messenger - makes me logout or lose service with Yahoo at times. Again, with Chrome, this is not an issue.

Big Problem With Firefox versions 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

Peace be upon you and the mercy of God and His blessings!

I was using Firefox as my default browser for a long time and I love it! But at or after version 4 almost, I stopped using it and switched entirely to Chrome! I don't like the way of loading pages in Firefox 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. Firefox is very slow loading web pages on my computer. I know that Mozilla still support version 3.6, and update it from time to time. But they don't add the new features/options in this version!

Take a look at this link: link text

In Firefox 3, there is no hardware acceleration, but after version 3, Firefox uses hardware acceleration by default since version 4. Firefox’s hardware acceleration interacts with a machine’s graphics hardware via DirectX or OpenGL (or webGL), depending on platform. These interactions tend to be very sensitive to the graphics environment on the system (e.g., the specific video card(s) on the system, how much VRAM is available, the version of the video driver, the OS version, etc). I tried to disable hardware acceleration, but it doesn't help. I also tried to enable Direct2D and DirectWrite, but Direct2D is still labled as false in about:support. When I use Firefox 7.0.1 on Ubuntu it is working great and fast, however on Windows it is amazingly slow. Firefox in Ubuntu is different, because they adjusted it and improved it enormously.

How can I fix this issue? Does anyone have any suggestions? Do I need to buy new graphics card? Thanks in advance!

Firefox 9.0.1 freezes on a frequent basis when I use tabbed browsing. I click and drag links to the toolbar (as a new tab) and it freezes when I try to release it. Firefox becomes unresponsive at this point. If I wait, it can take, anywhere from 10 seconds to much longer for Firefox to return to a usable state. This problem happens frequently enough that it has become a nuisance. I have noticed this problem on both Windows 7 and 8 (64 bit). Is there a fix?

I have installed Firefox 10 and 11 in Windows 8 consumer preview.

It randomly presents unwanted artifacts especially on the tabs. E.g. when i right click on a tab, it may get the color of the firefox button (orange). If I click on sth in a page, some tab gets the color of the element I clicked. Other times, just maximizing and minimizing the window gets tabs colors mixed.

My graphics card is nVidia geforce 8200 GS
