I tried everything except complete reset of Firefox. All websites, including Google, display way too big font and images. Causes parts of websites to break down. Using zoom doesn't solve anything. Checked fonts settings, no problem there. Unworkable for productivity. Couldn't even reach this page because link for logging in didn't work. Only after re-installing FF 21 creating this ticket became possible. In FF 21 all aforementioned issues are not present.

I've been trying to access a website but it won't load. I used to be able to access this website all the time from my work and home computers and my mobile device. I haven't made any changes to my browser. I've even tried other browsers and still can't get the website to load. It stopped allowing access from my work computer 3 weeks ago and from my home computer 2 days ago. I've emailed this website and they have told me there are no problems with their server and have received no other complaints from other visitors. They told me to clear my cookies and I did but nothing happened.

My computer crashed due to another application, when I restarted it, FireFox had lost the sessions.

I located sessionrestore.bak, made another copy of that for safekeeping, then copied to sessionrestore.js, however when I restart FireFox and go to History > Restore Previous Session, it is not working, it does not restore the full session.

  • I have opened the sessionrestore.bak and it DOES have my old session in it.

How can I get FireFox to read the sessionrestore file? Is there any way to select which file to use to restore the session?

Also - if I type in "about:sessionrestore" in the location bar, I get "the address isn't valid"

Thanks for any help...

Tried deleting cookies, clearing history, reinstalling flash, firefox safe mode, all add ons turned off, made a different firefox profile, restarted firefox to its default settings. Nothing works, start playing any youtube video and at the 1 second mark the error appears. It doesn't matter if the video is embedded.

Curiously, youtube does work in chrome.

What do I do?

I upgraded from ver 21 to 22 on Win7 on two computers. My bookmarks have disappeared on both machines. I tried restoring from a cloud backup and they are not there. I restored them from an old computer running an earlier version but still nothing appears when I go to the Bookmarks menu.

When I try to bookmark a page still nothing appears in my bookmarks when I go the menu option (ie Menu - Bookmarks - Show all bookmarks.

It appears that the bookmarks system has been corrupted.

I'm generally using FF with around ~100 tabs (or more). Whenever FF reaches a certain memory level (somewhere above 1.1GB), it crashes. I have submitted several crash reports, but I didn't get response to any of them. I have upgraded memory from 2GB to 3GB in my computer without any luck. It is terribly annoying to have a crash every so often (every some hour). This is an issue for several months now (don't know when it started, probably like 6 months ago), and it persisted through several FF/Flash upgrades (I don't think it has something to do with Flash though).

Any ideas? If you need more info, just tell me.

Thanks, Peter

Many of the sites I visit are instruction text separated by large images. Unfortunately most of these sites implement lazy loading which delays loading the image until you scroll down to it. In some cases scrolling down just leads to a white page until the image loads.

My connection is quite fast enough to load the whole page by the time I have read the first scroll.

I have not found a single browser that allows disabling lazy loading (as if it was not specified in the code). If I disable javascript only the first image loads.

In the days of dialup you could preload all the content from pages that were linked to on a page, in case you clicked the link. Some browsers do something like this but still do not load the images until you scroll there.

Is there anything in about:cfg or an extension that can actually load all the content when I open the URL (I don't care if the images load before the text, that isn't my issue).

Thanks!

A number of different websites are having issues where the pictures aren't loading, and there are large blocks of white space on the screen. I have no idea why this is, but I have tried the solution steps that were listed on the help page, I tried restarting in safe mode, and disabled adblock. Some web pages are fine, but others are broken. Take a look at this screenshot: http://imgur.com/CeyR5MM

Examples: beautifulpeople.com, myfitnesspal.com, mail.aim.com

Oddly enough, these websites display BETTER using IE6 than in Firefox 21! I have no idea what the problem is, I hope you guys can help. Thank you!

I am using Windows 8 Firefox Version 21. I really would like to Upgrade to Firefox V22. I would also like to be able to revert to V21 if I encounter problems. I've found what looks like the development directories for V21, but I need to be pointed to an installable download of Firefox Release Version 21.

Otherwise, if someone can instruct me what to do with the files @ http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/21.0/win32/ in order to be able to Install the old release Version 21. I do not have a compiler or an Installation program. Thank you in advance. ss

I've been having unbelievable trouble with the firefox sync. I don't understand why I can't just have an account, log into it, and hit "sync my info" or something and that be it. I'm so unbelievably frustrated with this "recovery key" business, and I have NO other devices, but it keeps asking me when I hit the "I have an account," that I have to get this information from another computer/device. Why can't I just get an e-mail with this key? And I don't understand how to even get a new recovery key if I can even find out where the one I have currently is! Again, is there no way for me to just log in and find that information? It's driving me crazy, and I'm... I'm just reaching the end of my mental rope, it's so ridiculous.

I was on hotmail, then Microsoft stuck me with outlook.com. Using firefox, I can't see the bottoms of my contacts names, but in Internet Explorer it is ok. Online help groups tell me to open my firefox page, but I can't find that either. They told me to uninstall Babylon, but it is not installed.

Please help.
