after I updated to the latest version of the product, some sites have been slow in rendering, but the biggest problem is the not display of styles in some sites, such as in particular hwupgrade.it.

the menu is not recognized. the console does not show any serious problem.

the problem does't occur with previous versions or with other browsers

I have a problem with only two websites. Each requires a pw for access. Once in, can't get access to info on more pages. Not browser specific.

Here's the error I receive: The connection was reset. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. This happens consistently with only these two websites. I've checked with them (one is my bank, other is realtor) and there are no technical issues on their side. It only happens on my MAC running OS X 10.8.1. Firefox is 16.0. Happened on previous version as well. Safari just shows a blank page which never loads. I've checked with my ISP to no avail. Can't find solution anywhere.

My son downloaded MSPaint but it appears the download was infected with malware. It downloaded several programs that weren't approved including the Bucksbee Loyalty plugin. I thought that when I removed it I would be able to use Google once again as my default search engine. But somehow Bucksbee is still the default. Google is also listed as my default search engine in about:config. SO somehow the malware has hijacked that setting as well.

When I do some searches by clicking on Google search results it takes me to sites like Match.com rather than this site for example.

I've found the MSPaint software in my Windows/System 32 folder. When I try to delete it I get an error saying Trusted Installer won't permit it.

I ran my Spybot software hoping it would catch & remove the program. But it didn't.

Anyone have any idea about how to neutralize & remove this nasty bit of malware?

Hello!

I have a problem in the chat (German). An user can't install Firefox anymore. It gives the error message, not having the required rights to install. The user couldn't uninstall Firefox before but had to as it was not able to start Firefox again. The reason maybe was a addon-bar that he don't know how it appeared there.

Do you have an idea how to solve it?

I recently had an update (or upgrade?) for FF 16. Today (and I believe the update was done a day or two ago?) my cache, cookies and history are not clearing when I close FF. Also, certain links are not working. Not links for full web pages but for site pop-ups (like the smilie window on a message board). They worked a few days but are not working today. I click the link and nothing happens. I noticed the problem with the cookies not clearing for a few weeks ago but it was only on one site not all sites which is what's happening now.

My apologies if that's a little confusing. Thanks!

Starting from about 2 weeks ago, Firefox has been crashing. The crashes is seemingly random, but normally happens when many pages/tabs are open. Also, all observed crashes happened in middle of some user operations. If I just leave it open(and loaded), it would never crash even after a long time.

Also, the crashes would still happen even after ALL extensions are disabled manually. However it doesn't seem to happen in Safe Mode.

After every crash, in the crash report dialog, the "Details" report would not respond. However I can open the reports using about:crashes.

Before the crash would happen, sometimes the following ill-behaviors could be observed:

  • Firefox fails to render CJK characters, displaying them as square boxes instead
  • CJK IME(Namely Google Pinyin, an IME for Simplified Chinese) could no longer be activated in Firefox, neither on a webpage element nor on UIs of Firefox itself(i.e. address bar or search bar)

The following has been tried but no luck:

  • Disable ALL extensions manually
  • Start a new profile
  • Reset Firefox
  • Uninstall/Reinstall Firefox
  • Switch from FX 14 to 15, then to 16 beta

Okay, I had some help from the community getting rid of the Launcher Bar on the bottom of my home page and it worked well for several months, then the other day Firefox crashed and when I got it restarted it also started throwing up the launcher bar again. I tried the solution given to my by madperson a few months ago but now it doesn`t seem to work even if I restart my computer. "Chosen solution by madperson

this line in the userContent.css file should hide the bar:

@-moz-document url("about:home") { #launcher {display:none!important} } "


When looking at the profiles.ini it seems Firefox has reconstructed itself to search another folder... 2lbb5bu1.default-1348169446250.

Can anyone come up with an idea to get rid of the launcher bar on the bottom of my Google homepage? THHHAAAAAANNNNK You!

I don't know what happened, all that happened was I was away from my keyboard at the time. I left firefox on and randomly popped up, I could not close firefox! I then had to shut the process and every time last night and this morning, he/it/she was there! I resorted to using an alternate browser but it is now fixed. I would like to know how and why this happened! EDIT : He was using his Webcam although my webcam was deactivated to fix a problem, I think he was trying to hack that too!
