I'm on a newish MacBook Pro using Snow Leopard with FF 11. Lately I can no longer use the Clear button when I am in Advanced-Network-Cached Web Content-Clear Now. I used to be able to use it when I had severalwildlife Flash webcams running that caused large caches. Now Flash keeps crashing since I can't clear it.

I had firefox open twice and accidently closed one, leaving one open. Then I closed the other. The first had 22 tabs open, the second just one. When I opened firefox again it only remembered the last window I closed, the one with just one tab open. This has happened once before and it remebered the window with one tab open, but I just closed it and opened it again and it remembered the window with multiple tabs open. This time, though it will not remember the 22 tabs and I ve tried closing it and re opening several times, but my 22 tabs dont re-appear. I ve tried contacting Mozilla and there is no way of doing so, unless I want to fly to the US and knock on their door, as their address is the only contact details they give. I really need those 22 tabs open again as I cant remember them all ! Some tabs have only been open a few days, some for months so a simple check in history wont help.

This morning Firefox is no longer responding when doing a Google search. When I type into the search box and hit a hard return, nothing happens. It is also unresponsive when I use the mouse to click the search box. Other search engines such as Bing & Yahoo work fine. Also, Google search works fine in Chrome. I've started in safe mode, disabled all plugins and add-ons and cannot seem to fix the problem.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

From what I understand, Firefox create a daily backup of it's bookmarks in a .json file the first time it closes each day. We found that if a user has already closed Firefox in the present day (and the .json bookmarkbackup file is already created for the present day), it won't add to this file the bookmarks added later in the day at futures Firefox closes...

So if, for example, places.sqlite gets corrupted later in the day, all new bookmarks added after the first close (and creation of original daily backup) of Firefox aren't backuped...

Is there any way to set it so that each time it closes for the current day, it regenerate the daily backup of bookmarks with the lastest bookmarked pages?

Thanks

Firefox is consistently crashing at startup even in safe mode. Only Firefox is giving me problems, Internet Explorer and other programs works fine.

One of these two things usually happen:

The first is that it will slow the computer to a crawl and then Werfault will close the program. This usually happens when I first try Firefox after booting. Under Event Viewer it generates the following two Application errors:

Event 1000 - Faulting application firefox.exe, version 11.0.0.4454, time stamp 0x4f5ecc44, faulting module MSVCR80.dll, version 8.0.50727.6195, time stamp 0x4dcddbf3, exception code 0xc0000006, fault offset 0x0003a7f7, process id 0x1674, application start time 0x01cd092f8d05a15e.

Event 1005 - Windows cannot access the file C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft.vc80.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.6195_none_d09154e044272b9a\msvcr80.dll for one of the following reasons: there is a problem with the network connection, the disk that the file is stored on, or the storage drivers installed on this computer; or the disk is missing. Windows closed the program Firefox because of this error.

Program: Firefox File: C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft.vc80.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.6195_none_d09154e044272b9a\msvcr80.dll

Additional Data Error value: C000009C Disk type: 3


The second thing that consistently happens not long after the above is if I try Firefox it will instead generate the crash reporter and show this:

Oddly enough, if I screw with it long enough it may start to work and when it does it will start up and work fine from then on until I shut down my PC. Once it's boot up again, the consistent crashing returns.

I've searched Google and have tried everything to no avail. I've done clean installs of Firefox, system restore, chkdsk for both system files and bad blocks, registry cleaner, uninstalling all versions of Visual Runtime C++, full scan for malware/virus, etc. and nothing has worked. Help please.

After upgrading Firefox to 11, it appears that fonts are 'invisible' when I go to Twitter.com (this is the only site so far where I notice this is happening). It appears only certain letters are showing, such as "N" and "l". This is not just on the home page, if I log in it continues across the site. I am on Windows 7 and have not made any major changes on my computer lately (no new programs, no new Firefox plugins).

Late last week I noticed I had accumulated a huge number of cookies. I decided to clear both cookies and history by selecting "Clear history when Firefox closes". I cleared cookies then closed Firefox. Firefox began closing but quit responding before closing finished. I forced Firefox to close (Mac OS X 10.6.8) then restarted Firefox which still failed to respond. I unchecked "Clear history when Firefox closes" and Firefox resumed normal operation except I am now unable to download files and documents from any web site. I tried a different browser (Safari 5.1.5) and downloads are normal.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Just starting up a new Windows 7 (64-bit) PC today. Firefox 11 generally works fine. I used Firefox to install Flash 11.1.102.63, which is what is recommended for my system at adobe.com/software/flash/about.

YouTube works, but when I load a page with a .SWF file, what appears is "A plugin is needed to display this content. Install plugin..." and clicking it launches Firefox's Plugin Finder Service. This window assists me in installing Flash 11.1.102.62 (note the last digit), which of course fails because Adobe refuses to supply an outdated version.

Firefox's Plugin Check says: "For your safety, Firefox has disabled your outdated version of Flash. Please upgrade to the latest version. [link to adobe.com]" This is simply a matter of Firefox mistakenly thinking this Flash version is outdated. It tries to force me to install what it thinks is the current version, but that is incorrect and impossible.

I'm having trouble getting certain videos to play. None of the live feeds on www.ustream.tv work. Nor do the videos on www.mtv.ca, nor those on www.kelbytraining.com. They all used to work just fine. Now, I just get a perpetual loading graphic. They all work fine in IE.

I've read the other threads relating to this and no luck. I've cleared my Macromedia and Adobe Flash Player caches in the %appdata% folder, cleared everything using CCleaner, disabled hardware acceleration in the flash player settings, disabled all of my plug-ins, permitted all inbound and outbound connections in my Panda firewall, disabled Panda firewall entirely, updated my flash player, updated firefox...and nothing seems to solve it.

Can someone please use your witchcraft to make it work again?

This is similar to a post I made a few days ago. Reposting because I have not got any more replies to that post, possibly due to my having accidentally marked one of the replies as "helpful" before checking to make sure if it solved the problem.

I was told that Firefox 11 would have a pref for disabling per-site remembering of download directory. I now have Firefox 11, but unfortunately, disabling that "feature" that many users hate and consider to be a bug is not as easy as checking or unchecking a checkbox in Firefox's Options like it should be.

Cor-el said "The browser.download.lastdir.savePerSite pref doesn't exist by default (it is hidden). Create a new Boolean pref with the name browser.download.lastdir.savePerSite and set the value to false. "

I did that and it had no effect. per-site remembering of download directory was not disabled. I tried clearing my recent history with no tabs open except for a blank New Tab. In the dropdown, I selected Everything and in the checkboxes, I selected Browsing & Download History, Form & Search History, Cookies and Cache. That had no effect.

Is there anything else I can try?

Also, is there any chance that FireFox's developers will add disabling per-site remembering of download directories as an option in Options instead of it being a hidden feature? Considering how many users dislike per-site remembering, I think that's what they should do.

I encourage anyone who reads this to please go to https://input.mozilla.com/en-US/feedback and submit a suggestion to make disabling per-site remembering of download directories as an option in Options instead of it being a hidden feature
