Name Setup      X

CHECKING...
---------------------------
                       OK   
---------------------------

This is the error box I get as soon as I open FireFox. I never had it before. It started as soon as I downloaded FF27.0.1. If you cannot help me, I will have to remove FF from the family computer because it is very annoying. If you click OK, it goes away for seconds and comes right back. I will await your reply.

I have analysed all services, startup programs and none of these causes a NON sleep issue. Only opening Firefox: it still works (slepp modus). Only opening Thunderbird: sleep modus okay. ONLY when both are open, sleep modus will not be activated. This occurs on any 2 of my Vista, HP desktops!

Instead of showing certain characters/ASCII, it instead shows gray boxes with 4 letters/numbers. I have the "allow pages to choose their own fonts" checked, but it is the same with it on and off.

It was like this since I installed firefox, and fiddling with the font options did nothing. :/

VERY FRUSTRATED! THIS PROBLEM WILL NOT GO AWAY!! FORCED TO USE CHROME AND I HATE IT. I WANT MY FIREFOX BACK...PLEASE!!!! I have checked online for answers. I have used your Help Topics. I have Downloaded the New Version of Firefox and Updates Today. I have tried all of the suggestions and checked all the settings. I have checked the "let websites choose the color" in content settings. The colors on my favorite site - Rense.com - shows up with White Background/Black Text. Supposed to be opposite. Should have Black Background/Reverse Text This problem has happened ever since I switched to New Version last year. I still can not get this issue resolved. I have Windows Vista. I used to love Firefox. Now I simply can not use it.. Must use Chrome because it works. Firefox will not. I would LOVE to have Firefox Back in my life but don't know how.

Yep.

they would play on my laptop hewlet-packered, windows vista sp2, flash last year.

I reformatted my laptop hewlet-packered to windows vista.

Updated to sp2; Flash is updated to 17 (march 28 2015); norton virus scanner to "allow everything".

Still the three little circles (in the bottom right) just keep pulsing.

For a couple weeks ive been getting seemingly random popup/under ads for things after clicking a link. Not always, or even most of the time, but enough for me to notice. I can't seem to make it stop. I have Firefox's popup blocker enabled, Ive tried doing a clean refresh. Ive scanned my computer with malwarebytes, ad-aware. microsoft security essentials, and Nod32. None of them found a single problem.

But the popup ads keep coming! What should I do to stop them?

I wanted to switch from netscape to Mozilla firefox. When I downloaded the software I encountered email problems. I could read my emails, but i could not save, copy, reply. The entire menu on the left side of my emails disappeared. Netscape people said Firefox was incompatible. They deleted Firefox and I was back to normal. Later, I tried again to download firefox and have the same result. Now i seem to be unable to completely delete Firefox and cannot respond to my emails.
