I upgraded last week to Firefox 3.6.7 and found it prone to massive hang/unresponsive issues. I updated all my plug-ins; still happened. I tested with disabling plug-ins, and it only happened with Flash. This morning I upgraded to 3.6.8, hoping it would fix the problem, but it's still tripping into hang.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== various sites or windows were active or attempting to be opened. It's happened when I've opened the Add-Ons window, but my usual test has been gmail. It goes into limbo there when I try to delete a message, load another page of inbox, or sometimes load a message.

When I do a google search, I get a bunch of results. However, when I click on a link, it goes to a different webpage - not the one shown on the search page. Sometimes it comes up at scour.com.

I looked up scour.com on Wikipedia, which states that there is a "redirect virus" that is infecting my computer. It cited "Mozilla Support." So, I am asking the Mozilla Forum - How do I get rid of the virus? McAfee is not finding and removing it, and neither is Malware Bytes anti-malware software. Any suggestions?

I've started getting the message below any time I try to use add-ons or plug-ins such as Google toolbar and Yoono.

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete. Script: file:///C:/Program%20Files/Mozilla%20Firefox/components/nsExtensionManager.js:623

Neither the "cancel" nor the "stop script" button will make the warning box go away. Nothing but a reboot will. And any time I try to go to Tools-Add-ins, or use any Add-ins, the box comes back and I'm locked up again.

Rebooting does not solve the problem, and oddly, reinstalling Firefox does not solve the problem. I also opened Firefox in SAFE mode, and I still get the exact same problem.

Upgraded to latest 3.6.8 Firefox version and noting it is still having issues loading heavy flash websites. Takes 5 to 6 times longer to load a webpage if there is Flash on it. I do have the latest version of Flash installed according to Adobe's website so that's not the culprit. Will be uninstalling this latest version and rolling back to the copy of 3.6.3 version I kept which worked great with all flash websites. Waiting for the problem to get fixed before I update again...hoping they can fix this. I noticed this problem starting back with version 3.6.6 and still hasn't been fixed with 3.6.8...

I am having issues with headers and other text on many sites, including popular sites such as Tumblr and Twitter. It has been noted that this is an issue with the Helvetica font and you must delete the font for Firefox to work properly.

This problem does not occur with ANY other browser except Firefox, and browsers are supposed to know to substitute fonts. This is an ongoing problem I have simply dealt with for a year at least until it started causing more and more problems with new sites I use. I'm a graphic designer. If I am forced to choose between a very popular font for my work or a malfunctioning browser with support that would rather duct tape the problem than give any real customer support, then I will definitely choose my font and a different browser more willing to fix its shortcomings.

Please let me know if there is any progress being made on this matter.

After running firefox a long time, i close it. But it appeared that it was still opened using a large part of memory.

I kill firefox, then reopen it, and 4 windows open with blank pages on the website infomoneyservice.com.

It appears these pages were opened before, but in an hidden way, and they don't show in history.

It happened to me 5 or 6 times since 1 week before i wa able to reproduce some symptoms in a systematic way.

I think this problem is also related to some interceptions of google results.

When I try loading a web site, the FF doesn't load anything. If I move or press the mouse(or press a key on the keyboard), FF loads a small part and stops again, until the next mouse movement. After the site has loaded, if there are flash animations in the site, they don't animate, until I move/press mouse/keyboard. I noticed this while loading embedded.com, but this behavior is seen for all the sites. Only that on some sites, the flash animations play without a problem. On embedded.com(I've tested there mostly) when I right click on a flash movie, the site continues working fine - everything plays smoothly. But when I click elsewhere it all stops again. I have latest version of FF and Adobe Flash Player installed. WinXP OS with latest updates. I have not tried to restart my browser because I'm afraid this behavior will disappear - but it doesn't mean it won't happen again :)

After I open a few different pages or tabs within the pages, the plugin-container.exe max's my cpu usage and the system hangs horribly. It comes back and then hangs again. The plugin-container is reasonable new, because I don't recall seeing it in the Task Manager. Is there a way to fix this?? I know it's related to some apple piece of garbage software that I could totally do without if that helps.

Thanks

I just got my new laptop and installed FF, but some websites have scrolling issues.

I have already tried running in Safe Mode and the issue remains, so I assume the problem is not any of my add-ons. I have also updated my gc drivers and re-installed FF, but to no avail.

I do not have this issue when i use Internet Explorer.

XUL runner 1.9.1 self loaded at some point. By trial and error I found out it was redirecting my Google searches for "Anti Virus Software" to web site other than I clicked on. I have looked in registry and found no reference. I did a clean re-install of Firefox and it is still there. The extensions "uninstall" button is greyed-out.

It has been some times that Firefox didn't keep the tabs I had when my last use. So, all the tabs were gone when I restart Firefox, despite that I already chose the 'save and close' option. This problem occurs now and then, about twice a month. Two issues raised; 1. Is it possible and How to retrieve those lost tabs, when I find the tabs are missing the next time when I start my Firefox? and 2. Can I myself fix this problem, or it is just can be fixed by Firefox ?
