Running Windows XP sp2. Firefox 5.0 (latest), Adobe Flash Player 23.0.0.207 (latest). I completely removed and re-installed both Firefox and Flash Player since the problem started. I still have the problem.

On Facebook, I am no longer able to play the videos. It was working. I have had this problem before and was able to fix it by updating Flash Player, but that did not work this time. It appears that plugin-container is trying to start, but failing. There is not error message.

Can anyone help? Sincerely, Fred

This is a very specific crash. Probably related to my previous post on crashing everything.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1169327

The rate at whole system crashes has more or less stayed the same but this is a new glitch.

Recently Amazon crashes (a tab only, therefore no error report) on first keystroke on the password field. EVERY TIME Same goes on Facebook, the tab, and only the tab crashes on load if the messenger app is opened. Only happens with messenger open.

Since this is a tab crash, I can't see reports. If you want to see the settings I run, look at the link above, nothing has changed except running sudo apt-get dist-update.

Thanks

In Facebook, if someone posts a Youtube video, it plays with no problem. But for months now, no other type of video will play. When I click on, a new page opens on top of the old one with a large viewing screen and an arrow to click to play. Every time I click on it, it simply refreshes but does not play. I just updated the newest Adobe Flash player and restarted three times. Firefox is updated. I have Windows Vista.

Hello Everyone!

When I go onto Facebook, numerous things do not function when I use Firefox browser, this does not happen with the Chrome browser, so I assume it must be a browser problem. Problems mainly arise in (1) the loading of the page (slow), (2) the stylesheet is not read properly and the page that can be seen is solely HTML5. (3) Almost always pictures do not load, meaning that posts will be shown with a blank square where the picture is supposed to be. (4) I get strange pop-ups implying that I have tried to download something (php file) which I did not, usually it is a file with a strange name. See the screenshot for problems 2 and 4.

The first, is of Facebook acting weird the second, is of a pop-up where it is asked whether I would like to download a php-file that I did not request. Now to my very limited understanding of web development it is perfectly normal for a browser to request certain files (that is how we use the web) however it is not normal for me to get a pop-up to download the file to my laptop unless I specifically request that. In addition, there is no reason why Firefox would need me to permanently store a php file from Facebook onto my laptop (as far as I know...)

This happens randomly and I cannot replicate it. Hopefully someone will be able to help with this?

Sincerely,

Laura

Hi, I setup my freshly installed openSuse Tumbeweed PC. I have installed Firefox, started Facebook on it and experienced that the videos does not start to play at all. In opposite how it worked on my old linux PC (as normally expected : video starts embedded on its place automatically) on the new PC the video opens in a larger popup but does not start when I press Start button. Another case when I try to start a mpeg video on my google photos site it says: "The video format is not supported." This whole stuff is supposed to work without any interaction as it work on Chrome on the very same machine. I saw some other problem descriptions from other users but no solutions so far. I'd like to remain with FF but if this is not solved I'll remove it. Any idea or better than that: a known fix? Thanks!

I was trying to follow these instructions: https://help.twitter.com/en/managing-your-account/link-twitter-to-facebook. After disabling UBlock and changing Tracking Protection to be enabled for Private Tabs only, while I no longer see the error: "Failed to load the Facebook SDK. Please make sure you are not blocking connect.facebook.net." However, I still get this message next to the Facebook icon: "Having trouble? Learn more." (Link for Learn more text: https://support.twitter.com/articles/31113.) Refreshing the page changes nothing. This thread didn't help: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1130053. privacy.trackingprotection.enabled was already on false (at least after changing Tracking Protection to be enabled for Private Tabs only).

Ok. Another problem with Firefox. For some reason, when I'm on Facebook, then close it, the next time I open Firefox, the Facebook page opens at the log-in page and I have to re-login. Happens every time. It just started this two days ago and it's getting very tiresome. No problems before, When I closed Facebook and then sometime later clicked on Firefox icon on the task bar, Facebook would always open to my Newsfeed/Time line. Why is it doing this?

Also fb works fine in my Opera & Chrome Browsers, (I do not use IE for ANYTHING)at the same time I updated ff I also upgraded my Kaspersky Total Security (KAS)to the 2017 version, (this occurred before I updated KAS). I have tried starting in safe mode, same problem, updated to the most recent version same problem, here are a number of crash reports: Report ID Date Submitted bp-94e4b5e6-9c33-4092-91a6-67e192161123 11/23/2016 9:07 eaa36467-4d15-4f2a-9ce0-da91902f1296 11/22/2016 12:05 af0b9947-0126-41c4-a276-6a61f03bde22 11/22/2016 10:49 5c58c266-360c-4d7f-a235-41040483aa84 11/20/2016 23:30 bp-5c6482fa-2c8f-4edc-8801-513a52161118 11/18/2016 18:34 26309553-d3f8-4fba-96ed-923530254ca0 11/18/2016 18:09 bp-25c935fb-e21e-490d-ab46-bf9722161116 11/16/2016 21:53 bp-2dfce2c9-3985-473c-bc15-d55a52161116 11/16/2016 21:52 bp-810303bf-7de3-4f18-8622-b34ba2161116 11/16/2016 21:30 bp-1925f22d-6b20-49eb-87b9-a6e772161116 11/16/2016 21:29 e9823688-a336-4404-8022-7a0b6ab4150a 11/14/2016 3:36 bp-395c991c-914d-45a8-9a1a-847dc2141021 10/21/2014 9:36 bp-ce263c0a-0c60-4998-9911-9dee22141020 10/20/2014 21:04 bp-2e78c72c-49c3-49b2-8eea-195c22141013 10/14/2014 2:30 bp-89dd26c4-2ab6-49fe-a033-dd7fd2141013 10/14/2014 2:20

Facebook full site's Messenger mini-windows crash (disappear and fail to reappear) when I paste any copied URL into the box. This occurs whether I retrieved the URL from the address bar or by rightclick -> Copy link location, and persists until I refresh/reload the page (also, reloading the page does not resolve the issue). I can paste URLs on the full Messenger page; I can do other chat features (e.g. upload screenshots) on either version of the chat. What's going on? I have a number of extensions installed and some modifications to the about:config page, if one of those might be causing this. Thanks!

I used to run Firefox without problem but lately had been using Safari. Wanted to get back to Firefox last week and downloaded the newest version. Since then I can't start Firefox; it crashes on start-up every time. I'm on a Mac, OS 10.12.6 (Sierra). I'm not especially techy but I have tried safe-start and a clean start with no success. Did submit crash reports, the last one about 10 minutes ago (Crash ID: bp-18a0ccaa-1f9e-4478-ada4-3ea8d0181109). If someone could help, that would be great. I am really fed up with Safari :(. Thanks in advance.

Good day guys ,

Basically what I want is to make facebook.com logout when I close firefox and enter again. This should be possible by just going to >Cookies and site data >Manage permissions and blocking cookies for facebook.com but the problem is this option for firefox is completely useless , doesn't do absolutely anything as I'm still getting cookies saved from facebook.com , therefore every time I open firefox again my facebook is already logged in.

Is there any alternative solutions to this besides checking the box "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" ???

Because I don't want that either...cause that means I have to log into every site separately every time I open again firefox...I only want to do that for Firefox.

Thank you
