I have only experienced this fake update request when using Yahoo.com news/stories. When visiting other sites using Firefox no problems thus far, but this fake malware attempt (see image) occurs when I visit Yahoo.com! I don't take the bait but it pops up almost daily when visiting Yahoo.com, item java script (firefox-patch.js) is always the same but the URL it's coming from changes each time.

Just and FYI to all.

Hi, I use firefox as main browser for developing and I got problem with its cache.

changes in code are not visible automatically, firefox keeps files in chache. So it happens, that I make some change and it takes long time, when the effect show. I am now compensating it by Test pilot Containers modules, but it is not much comfortable, to have one page loaded 5 times and after any small change trying to refresh all tabs, if some of them will reload propertly.

Also, I know the CTRL+F5 and CTRL+SHIFT+R shortcuts, but it does nothing. It will not do the clean reload, it again takes cached files.

So, any other shortcut/way, how to force a tab to get purely loaded from server?

Thanks :)

hey all I need some help. I'm fairly computer literate but my hp envy with windows 8.1 running a shell for the start menu to act like windows 7 keeps making this horrid sound. It happens every 10 minutes. the jing vid plays the sound at about 2:53 second mark. If anyone can help me with this I would be grateful. BTW I have all windows sounds turned off. Sound happens when firefox is connected to internet. I have webroot and spybot so I don't know what this can be but I am losing my mind hearing it. Not joining live hangouts etc because of it. I may have mentioned that this happens in chrome as well but it does not. I have refreshed my firefox and it is a temporary fix. I don't know what the catalyst is that causes it to start again.

No matter what version of firefox I have, if I close firefox and click on it again, it will reset my settings and go back to default. Is there a fix to this? Its driving me insane. Ive tried everything from uninstall and reinstall to going into the the about:config and seeing if that .js is there. Ive tried to disable add-ons (although the only ones there are the default) and nothing seems to be working. Please say there is a fix to this.

Firefox (Win 7) not responding for 2 seconds in every 5-7 seconds

Since auto-upgrading to 54.0b9 version (using Win 7), the Firefox browser hangs for 1-2 second (not responding) in every 5-7 seconds. When it hangs (during that 1-2 seconds), when I typed some text on the form, the characters didn't appear until after that 1-2 seconds lag time. When I scroll down a webpage, it stopped for that 1-2 second and them scrolled again. During that lag time, even the mouse cursor didn't change to an arrow if I point the cursor to an active link. I noticed that the Hard disk light was on during that lag time which may be that Firefox was trying to use the SSD/HDD.

I have tried re-installing, refresh firefox, boot in safe mode, with no plug-ins, switching of the Trendmirco internet security, delete places.sqlite to places.sqlite.old and places.sqlite-journal to places.sqlite-journal.old (if it exists), deleting session js files, switching off hardware acceration. All failed.

Please help. Thanks.

When downloading from Google Drive (or Google Team Drive) a large folder with Firefox, I only end up with the last zip part file. All the other zip files are missing.

Detailed example (Firefox 53.0.2): After downloading a folder named "folder", I only get a file named "folder-20170517T210208Z-002.zip" in my download folder; however, the first zip file "folder-20170517T210208Z-001.zip" is missing hence I can't download my folder.

All zip files except the last one are not downloaded.When doing the same on Chrome I get both the 001 and 002 files (hence I get all the data), so all good with Chrome.

How do download all the individual zip files with Firefox from Google Drive?

Hello,

Firefox 56.0b6 crashes during startup with EAF mitigation ( EMET 5.2 on Windows 7 x64 ).

It doesn't happen on earlier versions ( 56.0b5 for example ) of Firefox so I wonder is something has changed?

I had to turn off EAF and EAF+ in EMET to start Firefox.

Greetings, Mike

About every two days or so, my Firefox icon disappears from the desktop and my taskbar. I have to relocate the icon and repin it. Annoying. Is this something to do with being on the beta version? Or is anyone else having this repetitive problem, likely due to updates? Anyway to stop it from happening?

After starting Firefox. If I navigate to a page to soon it jumps back to the start page again (about:blank for me). Like it's restaring again somewhat. Just before the page is reste there seems like a windows opening in the bottom right but it closes before I manage to see content. Only add-on I have i uBlock Origin. Do you have any idea why this is happening. Is there some log I can look at or enable to see what is really happening? 73.0b7 x64 on Windown 10
