Hello, Sometime ago I suddenly realized that JavaScript was not working in my Firefox. I get a very explicit error message from Stack Overflow:

"Stack Overflow requires external JavaScript from another domain, which is blocked or failed to load."

Many other websites also do not work.

I currently am running Windows 7 and on typing "java -version", I get the following output:

java version "1.7.0_40" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_40-b43) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.0-b56, mixed mode)

I know Java is installed and working because I can compile and run .java files from NetBeans.

I am in a fix as I have spent many hours troubleshooting this problem but could not solve it. I am very hopeful for a solution here.

Thanks

Forced to use the windows 2000 OS. By release date 24.8.1esr is identical to 31.1.0esr (not working on w2000) and close to 32.0 (newer than 28.0) So, between 28.0 and 24.8.1esr, wich is: - faster - safer - less resources - better rendering - accept more new addons/extensions/plugins - has better chances to become obsolete (die) the latest

I an stucked on windows 2000 for an undefinite period in the future and I wish to be able to use the best browser Firefox has to offer.

I use the PORTABLE VERSIONS, at some point, I could share the same profile between 28.0 and 24.8.1esr. I guess they can share alternatively the same files in the profile folder ?

This problem just started today, prior to this I've had no problems with youtube. Earlier today, I tried to reload a video I had watched earlier and got the message "An error has occurred." I tried everything on youtube troubleshooting page, to no avail. I upgraded to Firefox 24. I tried using youtube in Chrome and Safari, and it worked fine. Then I tried signing out of my youtube account in Firefox. Videos played just fine. I signed back in, and the error was back. I tried signing into my account in Safari and Chrome (I had not been signed in whem I tested them before) and they still worked. So videos won't play in Firefox, but only when I'm signed into youtube, and work fine in Safari and Chrome, whether I'm signed in or not.

If I cannot solve this problem I shall have to stop using Firefox.

I tried many ways, but nothing helped: - Help > Troubleshooting information > Reset Firefox - Restart with addons disabled

I tried to read on net how to remove this f... malware, but nothing helped (e.g. https://www.google.hu/search?q=how+to+get+rid+of+dosearches&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&gws_rd=cr&ei=Y1VpUoLVDoruswa3r4DADQ)

How do i make Firefox STOP frequently logging me out of sites when I chose "remember me"?

I have FF 24.0 now but this has happened through multiple versions, and its getting more and more frequent. (Win 7x64, 8G ram, 1T drive)

I always check "remember me" and "save this password" yet sites like Facebook, Google+ and many others keep logging me out, at *least* every other day and sometimes multiple times a day, so I have to login all over again- today I had the frustration of being logged out of a forum with each refresh of a page! (I'm logged in, hit "reply" and suddenly, "sorry you must login to do that!" HUH?)

I dont care if cookies never expire, and no one else but my husband has access to my computer and we know each other's passwords anyway.

I am hoping I can fix this without either reinstalling firefox or deleting the profile, because I have a pretty large bookmark file and about 9 add ons to reinstall, plus various plug ins!

I am starting to suspect its related to running out of cache space- sites can't seem to remember me when the cache is full?! , since its frequently at max (it was saying 350 max, now it says 500), I clear the cache whenever I notice its full. I did not clear it today until after it logged me out multiple times.

Today, perhaps as a result of an update, I am suddenly getting an Opera-style speed dial page whenever I open a new tab. Formerly, I got a blank tab. How do I disable the speed dial page? I have not installed any add-ons that might be causing this behavior.

I am using Firefox 24.0 on a Windows XP with all available updates.
