Hello,

I am having some issues using any google related websites. Sometimes when I try to perform a search on google, or load a video on youtube, it simply wont load anything. At first I tought I had internet issues, but I dont not. As soon as Firefox wont load Youtube or perform a search on google, if I try this at Chrome I can do it with no problems. So the problem is in Firefox, since at Chrome and IE there are no issues at all.

I have all my plugins updated on Firefox. Anyone could help me regarding this issue?

Fan runs high & hot watching youtube videos. Have new macbook pro retina 15" mid 2015. 2.5 GHz intel core i7. Started happening after second to last Firefox update. Updated to most current thinking it would be fixed. It doesn't happen if I use Safari. Apple support senior lead tried to resolve issues. Sorry, I'm not very technical. Tried shift, control,option start. Tried option, command,R,P start. Tried logging on as a new user. Tried so many options, I can't remember them all. Uninstalled, reinstalled,and uninstalled again. ran disk repair(?). Followed Firefox troubleshoot all the way to the end. Started in Safe Mode...everything. She told me to contact Mozilla to see if you had any answers to my issues. I also had issues last week with Firefox crashing 3-4 times in a row while watching youtube. I sent reports to Firefox. I hope someone can help me. I prefer Firefox to Safari! Thank you!

Hello, so the crashes had not been as frequent, but I've noticed the weekly crashes occur, and with the reports having similar IDs, I figure there's still something else I'm doing wrong. I've attached the ID for the latest crash and hope to hear something soon. I've already gone through uninstalling-reinstalling my browser and updating my plugins to try to prevent crashes. If there are new suggestions, I'm open to them.

First, repeating my original issue: I have a Mac, OS 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard). I can access my Hotmail "Contacts" page using Safari, and at one point it seemed I could with Firefox. Now, I can still get to my Hotmail account with Firefox, but not my "Contacts" page. When I try to, I get this message:

"This page is temporarily unavailable. We're sorry, there was a problem showing this page. We experienced some technical difficulties retrieving the content."

Although I had my OS restored a few days ago, this problem may have existed before that, but I was using Safari, so I may not have noticed it.

Please use layman's terms--I am not tech savvy.

The response from Mozilla was to clear my cache and cookies, but they clear automatically when I exit Firefox. Then there was advice to start in Safe Mode--that sounds more like for a PC then a Mac. I had this very problem last year when I could access my contacts through Safari, but not Internet Explorer on my PC at work. After a few months, IE suddenly connected to my Hotmail contacts, WITHOUT MY DOING ANYTHING. COULD IT BE THAT THERE IS SOME KIND OF DISCONNECT BETWEEN FIREFOX AND HOTMAIL, THAT HAPPENS AFTER GET INTO MY HOTMAIL ACCOUNT, THAT WON'T LET ME GO TO MY ADDRESS BOOK? CAN SOMEONE CHECK ON THIS, SO I DON'T SPIN MY WHEELS TRYING TO SOLVE A PROBLEM FROM MY END, THAT NEEDS TO BE SOLVED INTERNALLY THROUGH FIREFOX/MOZILLA?

After updating to the new version 41.0.1, silverlight has been crashing many times throughout the day for several days in a row now. Yesterday for example, I sent at least 24 crash reports to Firefox. So last night I went back to version 40.0.3. So far I have had no silverlight plugin-in crashes yet. Is any IT or contributors aware of this problem? I need Firefox to be reliable for what I do for a living. This is not reliable.

It is getting to where FF doesn't load most pages correctly or at all, with or without plugins installed, and regardless of whether the cache is cleared or not. FF is extremely slow too, even after a fresh install. FF is also not sandboxed. I have no such problems with Chromium.

Tech folks are telling me FF is dying. I was hoping FF would beat Google because I hate Google. I'm finding myself using Chromium most of the time and I hate how its preferences and plugins are limited compared to FF and it doesn't load the home page I specify, instead loading a useless mess of preset links I don't approve. But I have to say I'm at the point of ditching FF completely, which is a disgusting feeling of defeat because now it seems Google dominates the PC browser and it's not even customization-rich and I don't even get to assign my home page to the home button.

If I had to give FF a grade, it would be F. It's like an old car that only goes 25mph and only drives on a rapidly decreasing number of roads where upon the instrumentation fails to light up or the engine might stop altogether. What kind of legacy is this? I'm tired of google maps not displaying correctly. Missing fields, maps, buttons, and graphics all the time. What's the deal? FF used to be great but now it's useless to me; I don't understand why it's still around. Are there plans to redo FF to address all these issues?

If pages would just load correctly I'd even tolerate slower program loading. Sandboxing would be a huge plus and I don't think it's that difficult to achieve. Much has been done to beautify the FF gui while its basic ability to display pages properly and securely is heavily neglected. May I ask where this is going? Give me reasons to stick with FF... Isn't FF worth fixing up?

Thanks, A user concerned about browser monopolies and diminished ability to browse the web productively and in alignment with my computing needs.
