I asked this yesterday thinking I would get an answer via email but I guess it doesn't work that way so I'll try again now and stay on this site awhile hoping to get an answer. I have Firefox set up to automatically update but it doesn't. Every time I start the computer, before too long, there is a popup box that tells me to update to version 45.0.2 When I click on "update and install, it says,"connecting to update server." but it never connects no matter how much time I give it. Suggestions please.

I don't care if I EVER see another unwanted ad so I blocked all those sites permanently from cookies. Anybody see a problem with that? Not sure if it will prevent random multiple connections from opening but we'll see.

Here's the situation: My firefox is not responding. I click on it and nothing happens, yet when I go to Finder to try and open/close it from there, it gives me the error message "The application Firefox is not open anymore," however, when I try and shut down my computer it won't let me because Firefox is open. My dashboard is signaling the program is running, so I'm not sure why it's not responding. If it helps, I was able to re-download and install a second version of Firefox which seems to be running fine. Attached is a screenshot of my dashboard, with the Firefox on the far right being the one that's operating.

I downgraded to 35.0 because my add-ons stopped working including download helper. Now it doesn't work in 35.0 either, what gives because it was working until the updates came out and was working when I went back to 35.0 and then it just stopped working at all.

The icon for download helper is not animated (it's grey) anymore and not working at all.

Hello everyone, sorry for the long post.

For the last 3 days, I have been experiencing a very frustrating issue with videos posted ONLY on Facebook.

Every time I try to open a Facebook video, the Facebook player opens (the one where you can see comments and likes on the right side), and Firefox gives the impression that the video is loading. But after a while, a 'cross' appears in the middle of the screen, below which 'No video with supported format and MIME type found' is written [Kindly refer to the attached screenshot].

Prior to this problem, I had NEVER, in 2 years, experienced any issue whatsoever with playing ANY videos on the Web. Firefox just suddenly decided to stop playing Facebook videos.

WHAT I ALREADY TRIED: - Reload video pages and play them again (FAILED) - Clear cache, cookies and restart Firefox (FAILED) - Start Firefox in Safe Mode (FAILED) - Uninstall Flash Player, try to play videos with the default Firefox player (any video on the Web would play, but Facebook videos FAILED) - Enable the Open H264 Cisco codec (FAILED) - Changing a few values in about:config *(such as media.directshow.enabled) to true/false (FAILED) - Refresh Firefox from https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/refresh-firefox-reset-add-ons-and-settings (FAILED)

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: - I use Firefox 35.0.1 and have no other browser (besides the default Internet Explorer 6 which I never use) - I use Windows XP SP3 Professional - I have not downloaded/installed any software/extension/add-on which could have caused this problem

I still love Firefox, and have no intention of migrating to a competitor's browser, which is why I hope a prompt solution shall be found. As well, I am not considering dropping XP SP3 anytime soon; it is very stable and fulfills my requirements.

Thanking you for your time.

I installed new Firefox update now Download Helper doesn't work right also my homepage will not stay set as I set it. I have three computers in my household and I have updated Firefox on two of them and both have problems. I still have version 35.0.1 on my main computer and I do not plan to update until Firefox works right with these problems and any other I might encounter. The reason I'm still running version 35.0.1 is when I updated 35.0.1 to next update, Download Helper would not work. I contacted support and was told that Firefox ver. 36 was not compatible with Download Helper and that the problem would soon be fixed. I have the latest ver. of Download Helper and it still doesn't work right with Firefox. I had to reinstall Firefox ver 35.0.1 to get things working again, so I will stay with ver. 35.0.1 until the problem is fixed although I am constantly hounded to update to ver. 39. I realize that there might be some security issues but in order to keep my software working and keep my home page(Yahoo.com) I will stay with ver 35.0.1 until I am assured that all problems are fixed. I thought an update was supposed to make things better not worse, but this has not been the case since ver 35.0.1.

At random times Firefox crashes, it happens all the time. Sometime it just freezes and shows a blank screen, forcing me to kill the process. Here the latest crash report: bp-09c208cc-9d31-4a44-88e0-5029d2150218. Usually it seems to have something to do with video and image intensive websites.

Using Windows 8.1 64bit, latest drivers installed etc etc.

This is just really annoying, what can I do about it? Thanks
