I am trying to deploy a cfg file to 5000 devices. In there I have already configured it to set the automatic proxy configuration URL. When this is done it greys out the No Proxy for Box
I need to understand
a) is it possible to still get Firefox to bypass proxy if you use a automatic proxy configuration URL as im not sure it does. I want Firefox to get to a number of locally hosted sites without have to first check a pac file to speed it up
b) How to set the details I want to add to the No Proxy for: using about:config

Hi, Can someone point out what is causing frequent crashes to Firefox 47.0. This started after I updated to 47.0 from some very old version that was there when I first installed fedora17. I am still running fedora17. The system is up to date, i.e. no security updates needed. The crash happens even in safe mode. The crashes happen more often if the website is not a simple one, such as facebook, and other interactive sites. Here are some crash reports:

Firefox is not reading the full desktop, it omits many items when I browse it in my real estate prgm. This just happened 3 days ago and was totally fine before.

When uploading pictures that I have put on the desktop, firefox is not "reading" or "seeing" or "finding" the pictures. I even tried to save the jpegs in my documents and pictures and I see them in the folders and on the desktop but firefox is only seeing a limited amount of items. This happened on my desktop and at my office so it is definitely a firefox problem that happened three days ago. I have had an update during that time. I rebooted twice, no help.

Frequently, almost daily, Tags I've assigned to Bookmarks disappear from my list of Tags. I have quite a long list of Tags under different Tag categories. (I hope I'm using the correct terminology here.)
What happens is a Tag categories will disappear from the list of other Tag categories. They I must go to one of the Bookmarks that I know is under a specific Tag category. They I select the properties for that Bookmark. It will show it is check marked under a Tag category, though the Tag category is not accessible (missing). I remove the check mark and save the properties page for that Bookmark. I immediately turn around and re-check the Tag category, they go to the top of the window where the list of Tag categories appears. The missing Tag category will now re-appear, along with any other Bookmarks that were checked in the properties section to be shown under that Tag category.
This is obviously a "bug" and I would hope that this will soon be fixed, since it is time consuming to go through the process above as a work-a-round.

OK - I have searched and Googled.
This happens with FF 46 32 bit, 64 bit, portable, on Win 7 32 bit, 64 bit and windows 10. It happen in safe mode. It has all plugins up to date. I t has remove all but needed and non removable add ins - such as Flash, Acrobat Reader, etc. It happens on computers with plenty of RAM (16 GB). Oddly enough, it happens worse with safe mode and plugin container is run-a-way. With normal mode, it appears that plugin container is under control and Firefox itself runs amuck.
So - totally repeatable. Page down in Firefox with one or 50 tabs open - no matter. It will crash. Goes black, or stops responding. Until Firefox closes. NEVER happens with Edge for example.
I have to think it is a Firefox memory leak, but even using Firemin does not help much if at all.
What can be done? I have done my homework!

More info, of course. End of my rope on this one....

This is a continuation of the problem report (with the exact same question) that had no solutions and was recently closed. I have no idea why an active problem report was closed. This is actually the THIRD instance of this problem report.
I had another4 occurrence a few minutes ago. I installed three MS Windows 7 patches, and a reboot was required. After the reboot, Firefox started with only 10 windows - my main window was missing. I ran my script to archive and process the three files - previous.js, recovery.bat, and recovery.js . Then I exited Firefox and re-started it. On restart, all 11 windows were present. I still do not have an answer to these questions :
1) WHY does this occur?
2) When it does occur, WHAT DIAGNOSTICS can I run to help debug this problem? This is clearly a bug in Firefox, and I want it fixed. I assume that I am the only one who is experiencing this problem, and I am willing to do almost anything to help debug this problem when it next occurs.
For those who have not read the other two problem threads - I am always running the latest non-beta Firefox, and I always run with add-ons disabled. This is a Windows 7 Professional 32-bit system.

I'm a web developer and designer, and as such I use the Responsive Design Mode nearly every time I open Firefox. Lately, however, I've been having some trouble with Firefox. CSS Media Queries aren't rendering at the correct breakpoints, but instead, as closely as I can tell, anywhere between 200px-1000px below the correct place. For example, if I set a breakpoint at 1120px, it doesn't render until the browser window is around 1000px. Strangely, if I set the breakpoint to around 1000px, it renders when the window size hits around 800px. I've cleared my cache, cookies, history and all of that stuff. The one thing I have not done is reinstall Firefox and I hope I don't have to go that far, Haha. Version is 47.0
Is anyone else having this problem?

after many tests, I managed to get Firefox working with a wok-related program. Problem is, it requires manual configuration that is not that easy for quick deployment. Instead of configuring the 200+ workstations by hand, which is time-consuming, I would like to know if there's a safe way to make a Firefox installer that would automatically download the latest ESR revision of Firefox with custom configurations and the two extensions needed for proper operation.
Firefox 47.0 and 47.0.1 updates DYSFUNCTIONAL after message, "chrome: //global/content/bindings/browser.xml:[nnn]"

I'm presently running Firefox 47.0.1 on Mac OSX 10.6.8.
I see in an archived (locked) thread that other users have had similar problems with Firefox updates related to "Chrome" add-ons or extensions. In my case, the first Firefox 47 update (and thereafter) triggered nearly complete Firefox dysfunctionality: Firefox would be completely unresponsive for as much as 20 or 30 minutes; it would consume 95-120% of CPU core usage for this whole while (a reported 120% = 100% of one processing core + 20% of another); and CPU temperature would go through the roof for that whole while — my system would get so hot that I was regularly forced to force quit Firefox (which refused to respond to "Quit").
Unable to fix this problem or use Firefox for the next few weeks, I very reluctantly had to resort to using Safari for this time — even though most of my web-browsing usage depends upon chronicling vast research with a vast organization of bookmarks (which made continuing all present work impossible). During this time, I found Safari's handling of bookmarks preclusively cumbersome... so, I held out hope I could get my Firefox installation working well again.
I have since learned that I could have fixed my problem right away:
I had assumed, since this dysfunctionality coincided with an automated update, that the fault was faulty new Firefox code; and thanks to this (wrong) assumption, I also presumed that I was not going to be able to use Firefox any longer — at least until updates *may* have fixed its wholly dysfunctional behavior. My bad, evidently — but not a completely irrational assumption, in that the dysfunctionality coincided immediately with an update. I am thus posting my question both to inform others of ready solution, and to ask Mozilla users or developers how we might more efficiently identify an offending add-on?
I HAVE SINCE FIXED THE PROBLEM, thanks to a post I just discovered here at Mozilla Support:
By interpreting the identifying term, "chrome" in the error message, this thread very helpfully advises to disable Chrome add-ons. I then searched for how to disable "Chrome" add-ons... and found no useful information. My question is, "how do we identify Chrome or other types/classes of add-ons"?
The unresponsive script warning reads, "A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue."
Firefox was regularly unresponsive to clicking any of these options for over 5 minutes. Even then, you had no idea if it was ever going to finish whatever it may or may not have further engaged in doing.
In my case, I was readily able to presume the offending add-on, because the "Warning: Unresponsive script" message was raised regardless of whatever tab was focused of over 100 tabs — *including the customize toolbar tab* (for example). Inasmuch as I presumed the latter (example) related to no conventional page... and realizing that I had just *one* add-on which might, at startup, have wanted to analyze material in every page... I clicked on that add-on. The add-on was Grammarly.
I tried to search the add-on for "Chrome," to identify if it was a "Chrome add-on" — but no luck: No search box. So I just disabled Grammarly, re-started Firefox... and poof... no more problem.
I think it would be helpful therefore if Firefox developers could comprehensively document:
1. How to comprehensively interpret the Unresponsive script error messages;
2. How to identify and to shut down offending tabs (pages);
3. How to identify and disable types or classes of add-ons or extensions (if an add-on or extension is the problem).
Meanwhile, I'm very happy to report that I am back up and running — and even moreso... happy to be able to continue to use the extensive system of bookmarks which chronicle my research.
