Am not computer savvy, but know just enough to get by with performing most routine desktop usage tasks .. I am running Windows 8 on a Dell Inspiron 660 desktop which uses Intel's built in HD graphics 2500.

Up until Firefox update 82.0.2, I had no issues with Firefox whatsoever. Applying the update to 83.0 resulted in numerous error messages along the lines that my display driver had stopped responding (but successfully recovered).

While glancing through some of the event error logs, as best I recall having seen, at least one made a reference that Firefox could not access the graphics card (or something to that effect).

I then opted to perform a system restore and rolled back my system to where I was once again using Firefox update 82.0.2 successfully and without issues. FYI, I am using the last intel display driver available for my Dell, so updating my display driver isn't an option.

Unless and until others report a similar issue, guess I will continue using Firefox as updated to 82.0.2 and not downloading any further updates. Any comments would be appreciated.

after discovering the windows sysinternalssuite,.. i've noticed google is keeping like 50 or so pipes running in the background, AFTER i've closed chrome,.. but interestingly, WHILE having firefox open - is there any kind of software i can install in firefox to prevent google from doing whatever it is they're doing,.. presumably sending to themselves illegally, what i'm searching for when using firefox!!

this is a quick cut&paste of the pipes active well after chrome's closure,.. i checked in task manager,..

as a result of the pipelist64.exe command's result (the 1st number is the number of instances, the 2nd max-instances)

We had to download Firefox once we had installed Windows 8. Although we now have a Firefox tile on the new Windows desktop, to enable access to Firefox, whenever we click on it to go to Firefox, we get the option to select Firefox as our default browser. Whether we say Yes or No, the screen then locks up and we have to use Control, Alt and Delete to close it.

I moved user profile folders to my retail copy of Win8. My startups (I start TBird when the system starts) imported - and amazingly Thunderbird started up from the startups even though I hadn't installed it.

Then I installed Firefox, and it immediately booted up and asked if I wanted to restore my previous session! There was no previous session in the Retail - but it was the session from my copy of the Release Preview.

My questions are

"Is this a feature of Mozilla products, or a happy byproduct of storing program info/settings/etc in the AppData folders?"

"Will I lose my info if I remove the old hard drive with the Release Preview - or is everything stored in the AppData folders?"

Windows 8 was released 5 months ago yet Firefox won't run on it - Bad! HOWEVER - on this site there is no mention - UNACCEPTABLE!! You have let yourselves down.

There is some mention in the forums - but most of it is quite old - and in the support page you cannot sort by date - and I don't intend to read through 1,000 entries to find the one I want!

What is UNACCEPTABLE is the lack of clear information in a PROMINENT position at the front of the site.

I have just bought a new Laptop PC and could not get Windows 7 - I had to take Windows 8. Every PC in PC WORLD is now loaded with Windows 8 - and the Mozilla site doesn't even mention it!! And Windows 8 has been out for 5 months.

Is everyone asleep at Mozilla?

Clear information might stop your (ex?) customers getting mad at you.

Firefox works okay but I notice it slow down an lag. When I go on Pandora an play music it'll work fine but once I start opening other tabs it will start lagging the music. This doesn't happen on Internet Explorer. If I play a video YouTube in HD I sometimes have to let it load all the way up or it'll start lagging. I have none of these issues on Internet Explorer. What can I do to fix this?

This is giving a XML with empty update tags

However, if I change Windows version from 6.2.0.0 to 6.1.0.0 like this,

it is showing some update related xml.

Is the manual download and install is the only solution I've left with now?
