It also occurs in any folder that I have in my Bookmarks Toolbar. Restarting in safe mode resolves the problem, but it returns after restarting normally. I also went through all of my Extensions and Plug-Ins disabling them individually and restarting after each, but I ended up with none of them enabled and the problem still exists.

I installed Firefox 16.0.1 yesterday. I was running 15 earlier in the day and it was fine. FF 16 however has suddenly started hanging for about a minute when I try to access certain websites. It unfreezes fine after that minute, no crashes or anything, but it's very irritating. From what I can tell it only seems to do it on pages that use Flash. I've got the latest version installed, and it's made no difference. I tried downgrading to FF 15 and it's still the same. Anyone know what's going on? Thanks, Mark

Before installing the 16.0.1 update, I had one particular tab group open, out of several that I maintain for different projects. (I could switch freely between tab groups in FF 15.) After the install, the Tab Groups Button does not open the Panorama view when clicked, nor does the drop-down command next to it move the view to Panorama, nor does the keyboard shortcut work. I've re-started FF twice, which did nothing to fix the problem.

I'm pretty sure you where able to search from the location bar,however I can't do that anymore. If you type just a word, a message comes up saying its not valid, or a valid url. If you type in a word thats associated with a web page it will go to that page.. for example,,if you type in fire engine, i get the message, but if I type in snopes it goes to www.snopes .com

It started on Friday, my Firefox has been non stop having issues of going into non-responding phase of about average 1-2mins then clears up or longer. Usually on a site using flash, I check my Task Manager and find 2 Flash 11.4 operations running with Firefox. It hangs too even when saving files or closing/switching to new tabs, so I don't think its all the new flash fault or not. Also randomly opens a tab in a new page at time when the freeze ends.

It's getting really annoying doing this all day.

Whenever I type in a URL, I don't usually bother to add http://www. in the URL. This has always worked for me up until a couple of weeks ago. Now, when I don't include this, the URL automatically switches to "https://www." format. For example, when I type "example.com" in the URL bar, it automatically makes the URL "https://www.example.com/". I do not have any add-ons or extensions installed that should cause this problem.

Ever since somewhere around the last FF update, I have been unable to upload pics to ebay. The ebay app appears to be uploading; in fact, it says it has finished. But the pic doesn't appear. If I use IE, it works with no problem. The odd thing is that when I use FF on my other PC, I can upload pics to ebay with no problem.

Another odd thing is that when the upload window appears, it immediately hides itself behind the main window instead of being in front.

I recently bought a new computer and downloaded FireFox. When adding my favorite sites to my bookmark, the names are automatically added. They're too long, and I'd like to edit them, however FF isn't letting me right click to edit the name.

When I right click, it just goes to that bookmark as if I used left-click. The right click on the computer itself works, but not when trying to edit anything in a toolbar.

Any suggestions?

Firefox opens normally and runs properly -- until I close all its windows. When zero windows are present, and I return to Firefox and ask for a new window, Firefox hangs. To resolve the problem I must Force Quit the app, which generates a crash report to Apple. Occasionally Firefox has crashed on its own and generated a crash report to Mozilla, but this is rare. I have tried disabling all add-ons, but that had no effect.

As long as there is at least one Firefox window open, the app functions normally. This problem only occurs when going from zero windows to one window.

After upgrading to firefox 15.0, I have had nothing but trouble with freezing and becoming unresponsive. Just about every time I have used it the windows become unresponsive, I can't close out or do ANYTHING with firefox, and have to Ctrl+Alt+Del to get it to close.

Often, if firefox does not freeze completely, when trying to minimize or close out, the buttons will just flash continuously (roll-over animation on Win7).

I love firefox, but this problem is so bad I can't even hardly use it at all anymore.
