FF17 updated to 18.0 late last week. Running W7 x64. Since the update I cannot even open FF. Crashes upon opening and all I get is the crash report box. Won't even open in safe mode. Had to roll back to 17. This seems to be happening to nearly everyone at my company.

When I close out of Firefox 17 it always restores my previous session when I open the browser back up, no matter how many tabs I had open before I close. It does not take me to my homepage setting, just reloads the previous session before close. All the time. How do I fix this issue?

I will be surfing on the websites stated in the question and all of a sudden, the page will go all wonky and even if i refresh, close the window and reopen or even restart the computer it will still be unable to be used and it's like a plugin is missing and nothing can be clicked and its rendered unusable. It happens multiple times a day and the only fix is to reset firefox which gets really annoying after a while.

I have been having trouble with some orders I have made online. The webmaster from one online store told me I should be regularly deleting the temporary Internet/cache files. Is this accurate? I know when I do this with Safari, some banking websites want me to enter my passwords again because they say I am using a compute that has not visited this website before. As far as my problem with ordering items online and having problems with the store getting my order, I was told by the webmaster that any good computer practice includes regularly deleting the temporary Internet/cache files. How do I do this on Firefox? I am new to using Firefox. Thanks!

My desktop is running Windows 8, which recently crashed. Since then, every time I start up, Firefox 17.1 (which is in the startuo folder) does not load, but brings up an error window saying (Couldn't load XPCOM). Dismissing the window then allows me to start Firefox myself. I have uninstalled Firefox (but not the personal stuff), downloaded a new copy of Firefox 17.1 and re-installed.... same thing happens.

Just to clarify ..... this only happens once, following the initial boot up of the desktop. I dismiss the error window and all is well after that.

Any bright ideas please?

What is XPCOM referring to? A missing dll file? can I find this file elsewhere and move it to the correct location?

Many regards.

I've been using a custom font (DejaVu) with unchecked "allow sites to use their own fonts" since a long time. But now some sites came with this new idea of icon fonts that look completely broken (a weird box with crazy stuff inside) until I globally check "allow sites to use their own fonts". Is there any way to configure different fonts per site? Specifically I would like to keep my all time configuration except for these specific sites which should be loading their beloved fonts.

I have upgrade my Firefox to the 17 version and it worked just fine from the beginning but it have become slower and slower on communication to the internet. I have used your product for some time and I like it but this is not ok. I upgrade the system as soon as there is something new. It is important for me to be able to save the bookmarks. I use the Swedish version!

Background images does not print from today from about 12.30pm

Changed nothing. Not sure if FF updated during the period or not. Did restore to 6am to make sure. Reset Firefox. Restarted computer. Checked printer drivers - ok.

Shows up without background images in "print preview". But no difference when pressing print background images/not.

Worked fine prior to 12.30pm today.

Any ideas?

As stated, I can get all the way to being able to join a channel, but I don't any 'chatting' going on. I can see the user list, I can see the MOTD, I can do a listing, but no incoming traffic from the channel. I installed mIRC just to see, but same thing. I am thinking that there is some generic setting common to both clients that I am missing somehow, but I really don't know.

Is this a common error that I might be making? Is it a connectivity issue, or similar?

There is not a lot of info regarding this specific problem that I can find.

What do you guys think?
