I have no idea why this is suddenly happening a lot lately, but I'll be using my Browser then suddenly everything goes blank and nothing appears on the screen except black & gray (see attached pic).

Sometimes it shuts down and then I have to restore it, other times it takes a minute and then everything works again. What's wrong? Flash player crash? A conflict?

All plugins are upto date.

Thanks!

Whenever I visit http://tarmak007.blogspot.in the memory usage keeps increasing from the initial 200 odd MB to a couple of GBs and more. Had similar problem earlier too with the site but it got resolved later. I use ublock and tried disabling too. The other browsers such as IE do not seem to have the problem. I am using 43.0.4 version on 64 bit on Win10 64 bit OS.

Says it has disabled adobe acrobat dc - but I have downloaded the latest firefox and adobe acrobat dc but it keeps doing it. Also with Kaspersky it says it has disabled it but kaspersky says computer is protected and it is working.

I am using Windows 10 which may be part of the problem as most of your solutions are for windows 7, vista or windows 8.

after restoring previous firefox session sometimes all the tabs are replaced with "pli" + "sh" + "man" +".2f" + "h.co" or similar

I can't find anything on the web about it so i suspected a virus/worm/something that prevents me to find info about it but avg and malwarebytes antimalware didn't found anything

I've done a firefox refresh (via Troubleshoot screen) and the problem went away for a while then it returned, i have the same problems on my pc and on my laptop but no other computers and tablet/phone in the house experience this issue (though i can't find info about that string on any of them) so now i suspect that there is an extension that does this.

Since it doesn't happen regularly i'd have a very hard time in identifying the culprit (i have lots of extension - that i use) and i'm hopping there is a way, a log file or something to figure out what extension accesses and writes that string into the tab's address bar.

Or, if someone else found this issue with certain extension .. ?!

I'll add some screenshots and troubleshooting info .. hope someone can help.

It allows me to type my information, but when I click submit, nothing happens. I've tried all sorts of solutions on this website, and so far nothing has worked. It's not urgent, as I can still login through IE. And it may not totally be just a browser issue. Something could be wrong with my computer also. I had updated firefox and my League of Legends game, and then did a restart of the computer(I think firefox required it). Upon getting back on my computer and playing some League, I noticed some of their information boxes weren't showing up like they normally do. I also noticed that I'm getting a bunch of captcha requests on firefox. A few days later I tried to login to Patreon.com and it wasn't letting me. I had never tried to login through any of the other browsers, but I noticed chrome was having the same issue, and even IE was too until I tweaked some of the settings. I had put a lot of the security settings to low and turned off pop-up blocker on IE before it let me sign in. But nothing I've done seems to help with firefox.

With hardware acceleration turned on I get weird artifacting on the Youtube timeline (see image), it looks like white noise in the real world since the image doesn't show all of them. Without the acceleration the artifacting disappears. Only noticed this on Youtube. In rare cases it used to crash the display driver after switching videos, but I have not experienced this for some time now.

I am running Intel graphics on a Lenovo T450s. Drivers are updated.

I have crashes-Firefox gone, crash report trying to work but never gets submitted-something (?) blocks it. I have screen go black with/out curser-use Window's key to bring up side-bar-get "3DText" listed and when I can close it, the screen comes back. I get script stoppages and Flash plug-in stoppages, very slow response from browser to frozen and latest, since I have been applying the suggested "fixes", Tabs would open, Firefox menu would open, but nothing else. The new tab would not display anything else, including "Getting Started" at top of page. I did get to refresh again but no help. I have run the Maleware program suggested, which helped my pc but not browser. I have Refreshed twice-no change. I have updated plug-in as well as Mozilla - no change. If anything, it is running worse with this new "New Tab," unresponsive, blank page problem. I am so, so frustrated. I have had difficulty getting my problems stated fully because the problems stop me. I hope someone can help me. I know this is a lot but I feel completely stuck. I really want to keep this browser as I like it best but I keep thinking maybe I'll have to switch. Please help! Thank you

Since the 43.0.4 update I can log onto one of our banks site, but once there, most links will not work - including "log off"; IE works fine.

once I log on, there are links to select which account I want to view - those work. There are also 15-20 other buttons or links to get to other functions or pages, or to change things like how many days worth of transactions I want to view - none of those work. Once I select the account to view, only 3 pop-up notices work. log-off never works, I just have to close out the site & hope it logs me off, or wait until it times out.

IE works fine.

FF worked fine until the latest update on 12/28. my other PC [with 43.0.1] works fine.

I've disabled no-script - no help. No changes I'm aware of since 12/28.

I'm running WIN 7 prof on a toshiba satellite L870, use avast free AV. anything else you need to know?
