Ever since taking the latest update for Firefox, anytime I click on a link on a page that opens into a new window, if I try to "X" out that second window, it also closes the page I came from. If I manually open another window for whatever purpose, it seems to work fine. It's only when I get a new window from a link in the previous one. BOTH windows always shut down. Not tabs, but windows. It's very annoying if I wasn't done with the first page I was on. I even tried to minimize the second open window, then right clicking from my task bar to close it, but it will still also close the original window I was in when I clicked the link. This has happened on MANY websites I've visited from links.

[this is my second attempt to post; first effort not allowed as I did not have authorization-??]

I can open any one email, as normal. Links within an email seem to work, when I try them. However:

Once I open an email, I can not delete it or close it. When I click "ACTIONS" or 'COMPOSE" the pop-up message "LOADING..." never completes, apparently looping.

When I click "COMPOSE", a text msg appears on the bottom of my screen indicating, I think, what the computer is reading:

us-mg205.mail.yahoo.com/neo/launch?.partner=sbc&.rand=cgcse0vj3t121#/minty/page/compose

if I attempt to delete, the same msg appears, minus "minty/page/compose"

When I mouse-over or click the gear wheel (settings) icon it merely spins and does nothing. Same text msg, except instead of "minty/page/compose" it reads "yucs-help_inner".

This situation arose about two days ago on my laptop. The same email works normally with Safari on my Ipad, also on my laptop via Windows Live Mail (which I no longer use but still have the program). Thus this appears to be a Mozilla/Firefox issue?

After the latest Firefox version magnified everything, I used the NoSquint add-on (at 60%), which now makes web pages look as they did before. However, although the top two bars at the top of the screen are of normal size, the lower ones are still too large. The bar that contains the URL on the left and a Google search space on the right, for instance, can display only the first couple of letters of a URL (after the //).

How do I make these bars look the way they used to? Thanks.

I downloaded something from download[dot]com (I'm not typing in the address because I don't want anyone to link there without proper warning). I've searched and done *everything* I've found for removing this extension. MBAM, Spyware Terminator, Windows Defender (I'm on W8 and it's built in, so no reason not to use it), uninstall manually, nothing.

It's not listed *anywhere* on my computer. But while searching, I did find something. It creates a Windows Task object that re-installs the extension and it's component software (i.e. a separate program that collects user data) on startup if it's removed.

Can anyone provide help? I've even found the solutions listed here and they don't work anymore.

EDIT: for anyone else reading this, you have to find and delete the global folder that the extension has placed itself in.

My Mac's Firefox is notifying me that it wants to be updated to v23. But the keyword url string breaks in FF23 on Windows and as I use both mac and Pc, I need it to work on both every time.

Keyword.url and Google's Browse By Name is how I use the internet, it's not a feature, it's a requirement.

What can be done to resolve this?

Thanks!

This is a strange problem that I have only encountered on a few sites; it is consistently happening on a specific game website (quakelive.com).

Anyway, I have my password for my account saved. When I log in, though, the Firefox does not auto-fill the login or password fields. If I enter the login, it still does not auto-fill the password field. I know that Firefox knows the password, because if I enter the wrong one (as I frequently do), I get a pop-up with something like "Would you like to update the saved password on...?" Well, no, Mr. Firefox, I wouldn't like to update it, but I *would* like you to fill it in if you know it (which you do).

I've checked and double-checked all of the basics in the other articles; I am fairly confident that all of my password and security settings are correct. I rarely have problems on other sites, though I do recall it happening elsewhere before (quakelive seems to be the primary culprit here, and it may be a specific issue with that site). I can always go into the password manager and find it, but that sort of defeats the purpose.

Any ideas?

After several minutes on a webpage that uses Shockwave, the page will crash and the browser will freeze. Then I get an error message saying a plugin has stopped working and asks if I want to continue or stop the plugin. I have been unable to get the page to startworking again. It requires me to quit Firefox and restart the browser.

When trying to play any sample from any album sold in Bandcamp.com the player starts playing, but there is no sound. Meanwhile other browsers plays it fine.

I use latest FF, I tried disabling various addons and plugins but it didn't help (they are not sound related anyway).

I run on Win8x64.

Update: The sound plays fine everywhere else on Firefox. YouTube etc. It plays everywhere except Bandcamp.

And the Bandcamp player is not Flash, it has nothing Flash related. It is HTML5 player.

Hello,

Whenever i'm trying to visit Hotmail/Outlook, Firefox is hangs and not responding for about 15-30 sec. It is not just Hotmail/Outlook, any HTML5 based websites (like Canv.as, 9GAG etc.) causing same problems too. It is not relative to my system, because my laptop is just couple months old and has Intel i5 processor and 8 GB RAM.

Here are the steps that i already tried and not helped:

1. Delete and create profile 2. Clean restart without add-ons 3. Clear browser history, caches, temp folders etc. 4. Uninstall/Clean Firefox install

Please check out the video below for see in action.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/2aodq6eo9d6azhh/ekran_002.wmv

What am i supposed to do? I'm using Firefox since 2005 and i don't wanna use other sneaky browsers.

Any help will be appreciated.

My computer (running Win8, FF 22.0, just installed) is set for maximum performance, which means it enters sleep mode only when I tell it to. But recently FF 21.0 and 22.0 has started shutting down to 5% of its normal operating memory use after as little as 60 seconds or so of inactivity. Then when I try to use it, it will SLOWLY reload, sometimes taking as long as 5 minutes or more! This is a relatively new behavior and a basically intolerable one. I cannot find any setting under Tools that addresses this, and the right click on the icon upper left now only deals with resizing. I do not want to go back to IE and have never liked Chrome at all, so I would hate to leave FF but I simply cannot continue to wait several minutes do do everything.
