Attempting to upload file via yahoo mail or gmail to no avail. As soon as I click on upload file in either mail system Firefox hangs, cannot drag and drop either - must force quit to continue.

Any click in File Upload hangs Firefox.

Troubleshooting so far: Firefox safe mode Deselected hardware accelerator Firefox reset Other browsers do not work either - Safari or Chrome. Updated plug-ins Updated MAC Cleared download history OSX safe mode Ran TSM adware cleaner

Please let me know what I may be over looking to solve this issue. Thank you!

Since the update to FF 32.0.2 on my Mac the mouse starts flickering when moving over the screen. It seems as if this flickering is related to the underlaying HTML Structure. It occurs on all websites, so no specific site related issue is detected. Until the update to 32.0.2 (this morning) no flickering occured.

I have recently deleted my history, but in the location bar, all my history keeps coming up. It's deleted from the history toolbar, because it only says today.

The location bar include my bookmarks, and the history that I've deleted and it's as if I haven't deleted my history at all.

Strangely, in Options - Privacy and Location Bar, if I choose suggest: History, it doesn't come up with any of my deleted history, only from today. If I choose Bookmarks, it only comes up with the bookmarks. However, when I use History and Bookmarks, it comes up with all my deleted history. I would like to use the History and Bookmark option.

How can I make it so that Firefox doesn't remember any of my previous history at all and use the History and Bookmark option for the location bar?

I when I click on a file in Firefox, nothing happens and when I look in my downloads folder, the files say file. I was able to download files yesterday and I don't think I did anything to the settings. It happens with both files that are emailed to me and files on websites. I have tried everything in the Cannot Download or Save Files article so please don't post a link to that. Nothing worked, not even a reset. I would try scanning my computer for malware, but I CAN'T DOWNLOAD ANYTHING. I'm pretty sure this is a problem with Firefox since I am able to download and save files in Safari. I would just use another browser, but all my passwords, bookmarks, etc. are saved in Firefox. This is a very frustrating problem since people send me numerous files everyday that I have no way of viewing!

Am running the latest version of Firefox (32.0.2) on three devices: a PC laptop, a Macbook, and an iMac. On each and every machine, cannot sign in to Firefox Sync. Every time I receive a "connection interrupted" error. Yesterday I set up two Firefox Sync accounts (one for me and one for my husband), but today I can't use either of them because we can't sign in. What can we do?

Please help my Firefox has started to freeze when I go to the next page of anything. It hangs for about what seems like 30 seconds, which can get quite annoying when your in a hurry. Is there a straightforward and uncomplicated way of fixing this, it didn't happen before the last two updates so I'm wondering if it's something to do with that. Thank you.

Apparently, crashing YouTube is no longer compatible with Windows 8. Today I had to restart my computer five times because YouTube freezing and crashing managed to break my entire desktop. This only happens with Firefox. Also, YouTube is much slower to load on Firefox, which will most likely make Windows 8 crash more often.

Vevo or any other official music videos are not playing in Firefox. After loading for 10 seconds, I am getting "An Error occurred" error. I don't have this problem with other videos. This problem occurred yesterday, although I didn't do any system changes or software updates during the day. In Internet Explorer 11 which using HTML5 Player by default, those videos are starting to play but only after 10 seconds load and not immediately like other videos. When forcing HTML5 Player in Firefox those videos are starting to play after 10 seconds load like in IE but HTML5 Player is very instable in Firefox. Software wise everything is up to date and I already reinstalled both Firefox and IE but the problem is still there. Even System Restore didn't help. Net research also didn't bring any solutions.

I'm running the latest version of Firefox (as of 3 Oct 2014-- can't check which version because I can't figure out which button to press-- see question) on Windows 8.1. I haven't closed the browser but suddenly ALL icons have disappeared. If I click on the blank spaces, the functions will still work (e.g. I can still close a tab), but I cannot see the following: Reload, Home, etc. buttons; Bookmark folder icons; Any of the icons in the Settings tab; Exes in the upper right-hand corner of the tabs; Favicons.

Firefox Exploit Screen-Captures

Hi guys, Well, I think I bring here a very interesting thing for the Mozilla team. I found I have some sort of exploit which takes screen captures whenever I click on any web page. It is specially active whenever you are entering sensitive information like when I log-in onto site accounts, o whenever I check something on the bank. I checked processes using process explorer, and everything points at Mozilla being very active and nothing else. I check the creation of those screen captures and they are always, there. I normally kill every process which is not necessary, and the ones left are just essential. I ran several bootable antivirues like Eset, Kaspersky and Bitdefender and they don't detect anything weird. I removed from a bootable CD all temp files this "thing" creates while making files and take snap of my screen. I goes back on when you are back on Windows. I know that something was going on when on the bank site I had a AVG-antivirus alert saying that an exploit was active and gave me the option to remove it. Other than that, you don't feel a thing. As said, it goes back the alert everytime you visit the bank and some other log-ins, specially while banking. I also disable all Firefox add-ons, as well as the Java on my computer -I believe there's some connection with Java here-. I have the suspicion that it is pdf/exploit coz I saw a glimpse of that name while uninstalling something which I thing was Facemoods. Not too sure how it got there. So there, guys!! I don't know where this "thing" resides, really does -it could be doing more things-, or how to get rid of it. PS: I saw a while ago that I have to mozilla folder hanging from "program files". One is mozilla.bak. I'm digging into this now. Any shed on this, you pros!! I'm not a pro myself, yet I love IT :-) Thanks a bunch in advance to anyone taking the time to solve the one big problem Firefox has and is going to have in the short run. BR F

Okay. A few days ago, I suddenly began having issues with Firefox crashing every time I try to save any sort of file. It doesn't matter the type - image, file, etc.

I have tried everything I can find in the forums and troubleshooting sections.

I started Firefox in safe mode. Still crashed. I reset it. Still crashed. I rolled back to an earlier version. Still crashed. I deleted Firefox and did a clean install. Still crashed. I have checked for updates on all the plugins/add-ons/extensions. Still crashed. I updated my graphics drivers. Still crashed.

I can't even include a link to the most recent crash report because every time it crashes, I get a message that Firefox had a problem submitting the crash report. I'm out of ideas at this point. I have a lot of extensions installed and enabled, but even fresh from the new reinstall, before I added any of them back, the browser would crash whenever I tried to save anything.

Please help!

We are trying to create a lockdown in Ubuntu where users are only allowed to use firefox without being able to print, edit/open settings, and are only allowed to use the extensions already installed by us (Java). In order to do this we created a new session in /usr/share/xsessions

[Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Name=Kiosk Mode Comment=Firefox Kiosk Mode Exec=/usr/bin/firefox -height 900 -width 1440 Type=Application

When we start in this session, everything seems to work fine. Firefox starts, no menu's in the background. When firefox is closed, the session is closed too. With this session somehow the menu's cannot be opened with the mouse, but keyboard shortcuts still work.

But the real problem is that the users need to go to a certain site which is using dropdown menu's. The problem is that when we use this session, users cannot open the dropdown menu's. They can only select an option by selecting the dropdown menu and use the arrows on the keyboard. We want them to be able to use the mouse to select an option in the dropdown.

We are using Ubuntu 14.04.1 with Mozilla Firefox 32.0.3.

Edit: In order to test this problem, I created a new virtual environment with the same session, but a new Firefox profile and no extensions. This gave exactly the same problem.

Continuously refreshing a tab after an interval leads to high memory consumption (400MB to 800MB in 30 seconds for 3 refreshes at 10 secs interval), why?

Environment: MAC OSX 10.9.5 Firefox 32.0.3

Firefox keeps consuming lot of memory when you keep refreshing a tab after an interval.

I opened a single tab in my firefox and logged into my gmail account on that. At this stage the memory consumption was about 400MB. I refreshed the page after 10 seconds and it went to 580MB. Again i refreshed after 10 seconds and this time it was 690MB. Finally, when i refreshed 3rd time after 10 seconds, it was showing as 800MB.

Nothing was changed on the page (no new email, chat conversation, etc. nothing). Some how i feel that the firefox is not doing a good job at garbage collection. I tested this use case with lot of other applications and websites and got the similar result. Other browsers like Google chrome, safari, etc. they just work fine.

For one on of my application with three tabs open, the firefox literally crashed after the high memory consumption (around 2GB).

Can someone tell me if this is a known issue in firefox? and is firefox planning to fix it? Right now, is there any workaround or fix for this?

I use browse by name queries to surf a good part of the internet, but there's a weird thing going on with the Fox and it's a strange operation.

Whenever I type in the name of a website hit enter and then goto a different tab, the page loads on the tab I changed to, not the original tab.

I start with Tab 1 and request cnet in BBN. I change to Tab 2 which has facebook loaded and I'm looking through it.

Request completes

Tab 1 has cnet in a google search Tab 2 has changed to cnet.com by itself.

How do I make this stop?
