I am using the latest Version of Firefox. Sometimes while using the web - it all of a sudden hangs and I cannot use anything. After a few minutes, sometimes half a minute -- a small window pops up and says - Warning, Unresponsive script. A script may be running etc. I click on stop and then everything is fine.

The weird thing is that it happens Infrequently and Not specifically on a certain webpage. Sometimes it happens on google and sometimes it happens on wikipedia, etc -- and then it does that on different pages and Not on the ones it did that before.

Tried to uninstall and re-install, etc

Would appreciate anyone's help on this.

I have just been upgraded from the lastest version of Mozilla Firefox, to Mozilla Developer Preview 26.0

This has resulted in the loss of all stored passwords, and sending Web Developer back quite a few versions.

Is there any way that I can get the passwords back? This is a major problem for me at the moment.

Firefox misinterprets a link in my webpage as referring to the same folder the page is in.

I have a webpage with a link to another webpage. The link is in the form <a href="http:\\www.sitename.com" target="new"> In IE, when I hover over the link the address http:\\www.sitename.com appears at the bottom of the screen, and the page opens with no trouble.

However, in Firefox when I hover over the link this appears at the bottom of the screen:

addressofcurrentpage/\\www.sitename.com

and when I click on the link, I get a 404 message telling me that page does not exist.

Why is Firefox rewriting my link's address for me, and how can I make it stop?

I use Firefox as my browser. I did some action (which I don't remember or understand) which changed my settings such that after a google search, the results are displayed in extremely tiny print.

Webpages display in "normal/default" readable size after clicking on a page link, or entering a link directly into firefox browser.

How can I change my firefox display settings to give a default print display, when I need to show my google search results? Thanks, D.B.

Image viewer doesn't offer a native zoom level unless layout.css.devPixelsPerPx is set to 1.0, which makes the entire interface tiny.

I was asked to squeeze my question into one sentence, so there it is. Image viewer doesn't offer a native zoom level unless layout.css.devPixelsPerPx is set to 1.0, which makes the entire interface tiny.

The devPixelsPerPx is -1.0 by default, which causes firefox to scale with the OS setting, which is perfectly fine. The problem is that it also causes opened image files, and more importantly the offered zoom level, to also scale the same as the UI. One zoom level is fit to screen, the other is native. (One is a magnifying glass with a "+", the other a "-".) Or rather, the other *should* be native, but in practice it is not native, instead it is scaled by the OS setting, making it as arbitrary and blurry as any other zoom level, which defeats the entire point and makes it impossible to access a native scaling in any reasonable way.

The help 'About' dialog shows my system at 37.0.1 but I keep getting "older version of Firefox" messages, even from Mozzila, including an option to download 29!

I tried to send a page and the 'installing social services' sequence required me to update to "at least version 29." However, my system is up to date. I do so religiously.

So I thought I would send a support note to ask about that and the support sequence too fired back a message, "looks like your Firefox is out of date." I captured both that any my version info in the attached graphic.

I have gone through several re-installs to clear this problem but it keeps happening. Why?

I also see in the "educated guesses" of my system, below this note, that your system is showing my FF version as 26.0! Can a resident piece of malware hijack FF that badly to deny the updates from proceeding yet present a dialog that shows me as being on 37.0.1? I'm speculating here as this issue confuses me. By the way, I have used Kaspersky--also up to date--for ages.

And I still was not able to send that page, so over to Chrome/Explorer I must go!

I would prefer to minimize the browser window by double-clicking next to the open tab (and don't really have a use for tabs, anyway). However, with the way it's set up currently, I have to be very careful when double-clicking the window, making sure the curser clicks above the tab area or it will add a new tab instead of minimizing. I cannot seem to turn off this functionality in any of my preferences or toolbar options and do not have administrative rights to upgrade to the newest version of Firefox. Is there a command I can type into the location bar to hide or disable this?
