It does it on any site I visit. I have tried clearing my cashe and cookies. It has gotten to the point I can't do anything becasue it stops responding. This started when I had version 3.5 and has continued since I upgraded to the newst version. It is only Firefox and not my other browsers so I don't see how it is my computer. Anything I can do to make it stop and work properly?


The reason mine was doing it was becasue of the add-ons. I deleted them all and only reinstalled AdBlock Plus, no script, request policy, and the video downloader. I have not had a problem since. It was either Mr Tech Toolkit or the personas. :(

Well here's the screenshot of my problem: http://img177.imageshack.us/img177/7263/flashorsomething.jpg

As you can see preview windows on YouTube don't load. Also - user menu won't show.

I think it's a problem with flash plug-in, since the problem started right after I was updating it (even though I didn't need to I guess). And that leads to another problem; I tried to update it since instead of videos on people's profiles I would get error saying that I got Java Script disabled or old Flash version - it was wrong then, it is wrong now - now, cause it still gives me that error.

I post here, because on Google Chrome YouTube works perfectly fine.

I tried to reinstall flash, didn't help. Some suggestions?

EDIT: Also, now I see that YouTube on Firefox got some basic problems with functionality, like can't view "more" of videos description and so on... eh. It gots to be flash or something.

I would like to completely disable the "this connection is untrusted dialog." I am an administrator and deal with many intranet sites. It is not cost effective to set an exception for each site. Corporate standards require us to use either IE, or Firefox, and I would prefer not to have to use IE.

To be clear: I am not looking for a solution that lessens the amount of overall clicks, like in browser.ssl override behavor in "about:config" nor am I looking for an Add-on (like "remember certificate exception"). I am looking for a way to remove the "this connection is untrusted" dialog completely.

When I use the video tag in HTML5 or videos the .ogg and .ogv files won't play. I get a grey block with an X in it.

I have looked at other posts on this topic but the replies are altogether too geeky and I cannot understand them. Why do Flash and mp4 play without any problem, exactly as they are supposed to do, but .ogv doesn't?

I convert the video with the Froggy in Firefox thing and then upload it to my server. The .ogv plays in VLC player, so it seems OK, but something happens between creation>upload>download to browser.

I would really appreciate a reply in plain English.

Finally, a plea to the Mozilla team -- why not get with the strength and embrace H264? I've read all your reasons but they don't hold up.

Firefox displaying JPEG images with green colour cast on Facebook and Flickr, images correct in all other browsers.

Since an update to Firefox early in the year JPEGs have begun appearing with a green colour bias (very noticeable in black and white images) which isn't in the original image. I first noticed this on photos viewed on Facebook and initially believed it to be a problem specific to that site, but am increasingly seeing it on images from many different websites - including Flickr.

Having searched for examples of people with a similar problem, the only suggested reason I've been able to find for this was that the images were created using the wrong colour profile and should work fine if created in sRGB. However, this happens with images I upload to both Facebook and Flickr myself and having checked, all are already in sRGB.

All images effected display correctly when viewed in other browsers (tested myself using both IE8 and Opera).

I've tried running Firefox in safemode, uninstalling then reinstalling Firefox, and also uninstalling Firefox along with the whole profile to do a completely fresh install and then checking again before any add-ons/themes were installed - under all circumstances the images continue to display with this green tint to them.

The URL I've provided (http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=1062726&l=e70ee32093&id=1424061557) links to a screen capture I took and placed on my Facebook profile to illustrate the problem to others soon after I first encountered it.

Originally I hoped this was a small bug within Firefox that would be fixed with a later update, but this clearly isn't the case as there have been several updates since then without this changing and other people using Firefox have told me that they don't have this problem viewing the same images. Having searched the support pages and forums several times over the months since this first began, and having now found the time to do a completely fresh install of Firefox - all without managing to fix this problem - I'm now drawing a blank as to how to proceed.

Any help would be very gratefully received. I've used Firefox since the days it was known as Phoenix and much prefer it to the other browsers available. Having to keep switching to Opera whenever I need to be sure what I'm seeing and any images I upload are coloured correctly has become really irritating over time.

I’ve stayed away from the newer Firefoxes, as my experience with 3.5 was poor, with its frequent crashes. However, I eventually went to 3.6.10 and had no problems.

Since 3.6.11, Firefox has crashed daily. Then, later that week, twice daily. Then, the following week, thrice daily. When 3.6.12 came out, I note that it crashes even more often, up to four times per hour.

This happens on both Windows XP and Windows Vista (I am entering this report and crash ID from the latter computer).

FF version 3.6.12 is hanging every few keystrokes or mouse clicks. It simply stops responding for 4-8 seconds (my estimate). The more windows that are open, the worse it is. However, this wasn't happening in version 3.5, so I know that this is a FF problem. I have a fairly new computer (one year old) running Windows 7.

Re. Firefox 3.6.12 and Youtube.com:

Searches of Youtube.com using the Web site's search feature are not working, and texts provided with video clips are not expanding. When I click on Search and click on the little icon or button (whatever it's called, downward arrows anyway) to expand the text posted with video clips, nothing happens. This never happened, before, with earlier versions of Firefox; not for me, anyway.

I think this started happening only today, or this week anyway, and also think to have used Youtube since upgrading to Ffx 3.6.12 while being able to expand text with video clips and possibly Youtube searches, but don't precisely recall when Ffx was upgraded to 3.6.12.

However, neither is presently working. There's a problem at one end or the other, now.

Actually, and this is an update to the original post on this problem, I just clicked on the "Like" button at Youtube for a video clip and this also doesn't work.

Firefox just updated to 3.6.12 today, and after that, my gmail stopped working normally. I can no longer compose or reply to messages following this update, however, I can use gmail on my iPhone, so I assume this is an FF issue. I had Buzz disabled for months, which can be an issue, but obviously it had been working with it offline, so I don't think that is an issue in this case. Gmail does appear to work okay in Basic HTML form, following my switching back to that, but I hope this can be resolved so I can use the standard new Gmail as I had with no problem for years. This is the first problem I have ever had with Firefox updates, again, assuming that is the cause. Maybe it's not, but if/when anyone has any info, please reply.

Thanks!

---I despise IE as well as refuse to allow MS to control my PC. I use to use FF only, but at times I have to use IE for Windoze Updates and such. To me it is just another MS invasion so, I will use my wife's browsing as an example because otherwise it would be rantings.

---My wife plays Farmville. She uses FF to log into her account. When she opens FarmVille in IE, her account information is already provided. Besides her not saving her account information at the login page, how do we go about sparating IE and FF again... or do I have to use another browser and give up FF now?

---I do not trust IE and will not allow IE to merge with my browser. Period.

Dear Folks,

I've noticed that some pages on my website/blog do not display Google Adsense, and nothing can be seen where the ads are placed when I'm using Firefox. I have the latest version of the browser.

I've tested the same webpages using Internet Explorer 8 and all of the ads are well seen. I know that other people are facing this problem, too.

Can you help, please? My website/blog is: http://www.plafstudies.com/

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FRONT PAGE IS ALWAYS OK TO SEE THE ADS. THE ISSUE ONLY OCCURS WHEN I CLICK ON THE OLDER POST LINKS.

UPDATE: Just noticed that the issue often occurs but not always. I wonder why.

Thanks a lot for your time and assistance. Have a good day, Paulo Franca.
