We've been having multiple Firefox crashes a day for a long time now. Time to look for some answers. Sometimes Firefox crashes, and sometimes it freezes so I have to go into the "Start Task Manager" and manually end the Firefox process.

Vista is the operating system, and we have Norton Security Suite installed.

Memory usage might have something to do with it, as the computer often sounds as if it is working extra hard before it freezes or crashes. I also find that CPU usage is often around 50% when this occurs.

On my other computer I open Firefox and immediately get a pile of pop-ups. These pop-ups seem to be cookie requests from my speed dial sites, and no matter what I click ("allow" or "deny") they keep coming back and then freeze up and I can't use the browser so I have to turn off computer. Help, please.

I received a message stating that " Total Browser Security could not be verified for use in Firefox and has been disabled." Total Browser Security is made by Mozilla which makes Firefox!!! So Why in the heck could it NOT BE VERIFIED for use in FIREFOX?

So I would like to Delete it/Remove it from my list of "Extensions". however I have tried to remove it following all of the suggested methods, but have been unsuccessful. Is there a way to actually remove it?

Also, would the Total Browser Security disabled keep causing the Adobe Flash Plug-in to crash, and cause all of my web browsers to freeze and crash and then cause my computer to freeze? Or could that just be due to my computer being 9 years old?

I plan on building a new computer either later this year or early next year, whenever I get the money. I am trying to make this computer last.

Tried to get help with my ant-virus program. The techie wanted to access my computer to help him solve the problem, using www.gotoassist.me We tried many ways, including using Safe Mode, but none worked. The download would not open, so we could not go any further. Is this something Firefox has a fix for?

I use Windows Vista on a Toshiba Laptop, and my Firefox is up to date: 49.0.1

Hello, I cam home from work, the computer was logged off from prior evening, however, it was up and running with a PC Cleanup type site I had never seen before running scans! I always default to Mozilla Firefox, but now it defaults to Palikan.com for a search engine and not firefox. What happened? and how can I remove Palikan.com? I went to the Control Panel to see about removing the new program and it is not listed in programs. They say virus sites dont detect because it attaches to a already trusted program...but it knocked Firefox out. Your Logo is still avail to click on, but Palikan starts up. I pasted the link below. Please advise and assist. Thank you in advance. Lillie G. C.
