Please fix Mozilla Firefox. Suggesting that users get rid of skype is not a solution. I have an older computer, and when I use that, I don't have these script errors, apparently because that computer wouldn't accept the latest skype update. So no problem on that one. I need skype on both computers and I can't continue working at the slow pace that this script message is causing.

I have Firefox on my old laptop (PC) with 300+ tabs open. I want to keep those tabs and transfer them so I can see them in Firefox on my new laptop (also PC). So I created my Sync account in Firefox on the old laptop, then logged in with the same account in Firefox on the new laptop. But my tabs were not there. How do I transfer my open tabs?

No matter what I seem to do, message "plug-in may be busy - continue or stop script" or something close to that, keeps coming up again and again and my PC hangs especially video have a Toshiba Portege running Windows 7 Pro. Have refreshed Firefox but no help. Also keep getting messages regarding Adobe requesting more bytes. Have been to Adobe site but while lots of chatter regarding these type of errors, no real fix seems to be available. I am an older woman, not a techie or 16 years old so these type of problems are really difficult for me if the directions on how to do something are not minute. I appreciate any help I can get and hope I have outlined what is happening somewhat clearly. Thank you very much for your kind attention.

I have just upgraded to Window 10 Home from Window 8.1 last night and found the Firefox 39 to be unable to connect to the internet. IE Edge and Chrome works fine. So, I install Firefox 40 beta; entering the url in the address bar or using the search box does not do anything at all. The page just remains the same. I tried to click on the links or use the search box in the default Mozilla Firefox start page and it does not do anything as well.

I have already tried to disable my antivirus and firewall and use the safe mode and it is the same. I'm not sure how can I resolve the issue.

После обновления, в панели поиска (рядом с адресной строкой), я больше не могу видеть какой поисковик используется по умолчанию. Раньше я мог одной мышкой в пару кликов выбрать другой поисковик или точно также открыть нужный поисковик на уже открытой другой странице. Сейчас это ужас, не видно ничего, какой поисковик используется, как мне открыть другой поисковик... Помогите решить проблему, так как это один из наибольших плюсов, из-за которого я пользуюсь браузером Mozilla Firefox.

Hi there, I recently lost my 'recent bookmarks' and 'recent tags' from my bookmarks folder. I searched help on the forums and followed the advice to restore the smart bookmarks folder (going to about:config, double-clicking on the smartbookmarks link, setting the value to 0 and re-starting) and whilst this brought back the 'most visited' tag to the toolbar (which I was happy not to have) and the 'recent tags' to my bookmark menu (which again, I don't really want), it hasn't brought back 'recent bookmarks', which is the one I actually want!

If anyone can help, I'd be grateful.

Many thanks,

Anais

I'm using Windows 7 64-bit, latest version of Firefox.

www.vine.co won't load, it just shows this loading circle you can see in the attached file, forever. The website loads just fine in other browsers.

I've tried to load the website with different profiles, safe mode and even in a different PC. The result is the same.

The strange thing is that I'm able to see embedded vines in sites like Twitter, but if I click the "View on the web" link, it won't load.

Please help me.

Now the problem is I don't see tab bar when I hover mouse on top of screen. This option is not simply disabling the animation but also my access to tab bar in fullscreen. Is there a work around? Thanks.
