For example, on Xfinity when I try to view a video clip in says that is is loading and will stay as loading for an hour or more. I have downloaded and installed the latest Adobe Flash player from Adobe and it still does not load. Another site I am having this problem with is AARP. I contacted them and they stated that the problem was with Firefox and how it is handling the Flash Player. If I use IE things work fine, however, I don't like IE and would prefer Firefox.

I am using Windows 10, and Firefox 43.0.3

Since the windows 10 upgrade,here is what has happened. 1. My Android smart phone has tried to sync with my laptop. Yahoo mail is my default. 2. Google and Yahoo mail work fine on my phone. 3. I never set up a "MASTER" password for Firefox. 4. Firefox recognizes my email for yahoo but not my p/w. 5. The p/w that I have been using for 9 years is not recognized for Firefox. BUT I used it for this forum. 6. Every time I use a p/w I get the message to log in with my Master p/w. I choose cancel. Then continue. 7. How can I reset, hopefully "WITHOUT LOOSING MY FAVORITES"

I recently uninstalled Firefox and downloaded it again. I was having trouble with Firefox and thought it might be corrupted. After a new installation Firefox worked fine. I just got a warning that my network was vulnerable and there was a security patch recommended. I deleted the message and didn't download the patch. I have searched the Mozilla support but can't find any info on the "patch". The question is is the patch recommendation legitimate?

For two days, I cannot access one website on FF. The website is not down. I also pinged it.

I can access via IE.
  I did the troubleshooting tips at Tips & Tricks http://sidsuniverse.blogspot.com/2008/10/firefox-cannot-access-internet-other.html, which seems to be VERY comprehensive.

I just installed 43.03 today, Prior to that, I was dealing with two days of- "FF Not Responding." I uninstalled v42 and upon reinstall, I got the notice that the new version was ready for install. Immediately upon opening the new version, I ran into "FF Not Responding" and then it stopped. I am still left with ONE Website being inaccessible. There is no error; it just doesn't load.

What I didn't try was Safe Mode and installing an earlier version (I guess 41 or so). Since I can disable anti-tracking and ad blocking apps (which I DO), then why would I have to try Safe Mode? Disabling all potentially conflicting apps does not make an iota of difference. I'm at the end of my abilities. One website only = no errors; no opening either.

Thank you.

Hello all at Mozilla. Happy New Year. !!!!!!

While surfing, the a window pop up (with pop-up disabled) and tells me my "network is infected" and to download the Firefox Patch. This is the URL that it comes from:

https://ahteetgv-europe.org/a5d5d96c0b4e1fcf815594cc26ed6b02.html

Since I did not see any mention of Mozilla or Firefox in the URL, I didn't trust it.

My AVG program warned me that it was dangerous

Crash ID: bp-575767fe-cd41-4770-a945-cd3b52151230

December 2015 ..Since the latest Windows update and Firefox Update I can no longer access Firefox. As soon as I open Firefox it crashes and the pop up window says submit crash report...which I have done. My operating system is Windows Vista. I have 7 other computers in my house running Windows 7, 8 and 10 and none of the other computers are experiencing any issues with Firefox. I have gone through ALL the steps recommended by Mozilla, uninstall, reinstall, safe mode, without plugins, check internet connection etc...nothing has helped. On the reinstall Firefox would open and stay open but would not connect to any websites. I then would get the message cannot locate XPCom. I did some research online and read that XPcom is not used in Firefox any longer so that was odd. So in the end I did a system restore back to the end of November 2015 when all was working well. But now I am back to Firefox crashing every time I open it. Help Please. I am a "only ever want to use Firefox as my web browser person". I have used Firefox since the beginning of time and it has NEVER failed me. I cannot bear to be forced to use Goggle Chrome instead of Firefox. :( Thank you for all you do to provide an amazing product! :)
