In C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles there is one profile (qanl58lx.default) and my extensions is in the profile folder, but in Firefox options/extensions there are none. This has been going on for some time, but suddently 2 days ago a window for every extension showed up and asked for updating, which was done, and now extensions were shown inOptions/extensoins. But today they are all gone again. I have scanned for malware and there are none.

Whats wrong?

I have installed this enhanced Profile Manager :

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Profile_Manager

I cannot find any release history. Has this product been kept up to date, and does it work correctly with the last Firefox version ? Can it be used in parallel with the regular Profile Manager ?

My problem is, both my profiles are shown as locked (see screen grab). A locked profile, as I understand it, is currently in use, and should not be used by another instance of Firefox, in order to avoid corruption.

However, my profiles are always shown as locked, even when Firefox is not open yet. The same happens after Firefox is launched : the profile that's not being used is still "locked".

Every day around 9:30 PM, browsing the web becomes impossible. nearly every site I visit brings up a This Connection Is Untrusted page. I have tried using different browsers and Different Devices. Even my 3DS doesn't work. This has lead me to believe that the problem is either with the modem or my service provider. I checked the certificate of Google via chrome://pippki/content/exceptionDialog.xul, and it read ISSUED TO Common Name (CN) security.frontier.com Organization (O) security.frontier.com and when I checked it now, it reads ISSUED TO Common Name (CN) www.google.com Organization (O) Google Inc I don't know what fixes this problem since the problem stops at different times. It started around when I installed AVG, so I tried uninstalling it, but the problem didn't stop. While I'm fairly certain the problem isn't related to Firefox, this is one of the sites that I am able to visit when this problem occurs. I have tried manually adding the exception so I could bypass the Untrusted Connection page, but the page never loads and the next time it happens, the page is there again anyway.

Hello

The downloads box when I click the down arrow "Show More Downloads" expands to a large box with NO OPTION to close it. It remains open, and takes the whole screen up. I have only been able to move it to the side, but still not been able to close it for weeks (unless I restart my computer, but which then, when I click Show More Downloads again.. it happens again).

There are no red/yellow/green options to make the box smaller, larger or close it!

I've tried searching everything and still no answers, and it it slowing down my internet browsing too (making it often crash).

See screen shot attached.

Firefox has stopped uploading files of more than 500k. In Yahoo mail on smaller files the green upload bar shows and the file loads when it is complete. On larger files the green progress bar never shows up and eventually the message is check you internet connection.

There are no problems when using IE or Chrome.

The two machines which have problems are both Win7. A new Win10 machine is OK using the same add on's (Adblock and FX Chrome).

Firefox has been started in safe mode, had all add on's removed and had a clean install. None of these steps have solved the problem.

I've just upgraded to Firefox 42.0 and, unlike previous versions, the background color setting in "Content" does not work anymore. On the setting page the "Background color" indicator does change to the color I select (not the white one) from the color theme choices, but whenever I open a blank window the background color is always white. Then, when I go back to the setting page to check, that indicator still shows the color I have chosen. And whether I tick the "Use the system color" box or not tick it, the result remains the same -- the background color of a blank window is always white.

This is a problem I have never encountered before. I would like to find out why.

Thank you for any help.

I've had this problem several versions ago, and don't recall that it was adequately addressed.

Think of it this way... FF thinks the Windows taskbar is auto-hiding, and extends its windows to the bottom as a result.

Maxing the window helps, but only for that session. It'll happen again when the same site is opened later.

One site it's known to occur consistently is weismarkets.com, a chain of food-markets in the Northeast USA.

Now what? Just manually resize the window at the bottom, then do a Ctrl-dblclick on the last open FF?

01.12.15 Firefox freezing mostly when utilizing bookmark features

Firfox freezing seems to be a widespread issue with firefox, since looong time without a real solution. Simply searching for "freeze": among so many others, also with Thunderbird(wher I never ever noticed any frezzes, so far: https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1082233 I "solved", no, I hide it by entering a system varibale to suppress message (like blind the warning lamp an th alarm panel, or what)

https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1073963 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1068669 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1079575 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1090889 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1086151 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1072930 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1096059 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1094223 "Large Cache wit FF"? BTW, This is another example whot to "solve" an issue by "disable this and disable that" Hey guys, are you doing this when you buy your car? disable the breaks, when the make noise? Or disable a warning light? For me, that is not a "solution". Not even a workaround!


I personally have very rarely noted any freezes/crashes related to videos/flash sites with my pc

After trying all mentionend workarounds, even crating a new user profile in WIN 81, I face Freeze-issues - not each time, but randomly - when - click into FF window after PC sleep mode - click on bookmark symbol(star) to set a bm - click on tab to "add bookmarks for all tabs.." - switching between FF windows.

I use bm feature quite extensively, I read several news pages one by one, each time I open it in a new window and open interesting links in new tabs, at the end I save all tabs to bookmarks [ newspaper_date ] and finally delete history/all cookies.

I am running adblockplus, noscript and ghostery-add on, thus avoiding any flash advertisement or movie to be downloaded/started automatically

I rarely see any videos, so far I have not found any relation between looking some videos and a freeze.

As mentioned an other question, I will observe this issue by building a new bookmark database.

Now in about:config, setting <browser.preferences.advanced.selectedTabIndex> to <false> does not open a pop-up window, but rather a new tab.

The videos wont play or load at all. As will the thumbnails. The comments section constantly says "loading". I have tried every thing listed on the website here to fix these problems. The only thing that has worked to be honest was loading Internet Explorer. Adblock plus and Flashplayer plugins are either removed or disabled. Tried making a new profile as well as deleting the folder in %appdata%. It works for a while and then randomly does it again.

Things that MAY assist in this problem. Youtube is the only website that does this when it comes to videos. Sites require a flash use sometimes wont play even though everything is clean installed. I have Nvidia Geforce experience running with shadowplay enabled to also record desktop connections. Since it uses the h.24 codec I thought it was clashing with it causing the problem. I can turn shadowplay off and reload the youtube page 2 to 3 times and the main video only will play.

Finally I gave up the other day , put everything back the way it was and put the computer to sleep. When I woke up I decided what the hey, Ill just load youtube up for laughs to see if it magically fixed. Well it did. Then tonight its back to square one again. I had noticed my yahoo home page with the news wouldnt change articles when moused over. So I decided to try the webtools / network tool to reload the page. It fixed yahoo flash run news articles but then my youtube problem came back! Ive had fire fox for as long as I can remember and never had problems with it! If Ive come here, it means ive given up being stubborn. I pride myself on fixing my own problems , but this one has me so I yield.

Below is an attatched image.
