the timer shakes and flash does not load I have followed most of the instructions already posted. plug ins says I have the plug in, and it is on 'always allow' Lexulous..a scrabble site, lets me go to the website, but I can't get the game component to download. Chrome does it fine. I tried some other sites and it seems to be Flash. it was working fine until 3 days ago.

It's about the design of the Bookmarks arrangement. I wonder if I could put a specific Bookmark (E.g. Google web page) to the corner right under the Menu button? or at the bottom of Firefox?

I would love to have a bottom bar space available in Firefox for Bookmarks or the other Tools & Features.

Google search page will NOT load as home page, despite being set up in Options exactly as per instructions in FF Help. When I fire up FF, the surroundings all come up OK, but no home page - just 'blank screen'. Sometimes if I mess with FF, like close it and open it again likketysplit, it works - very slowly - but usually not. But if I open a new tab and call up Google from Bookmarks or manually type in the URL (as specified in Options entry), it loads up right away no problem. Even if I overtype 'blank screen' with the call to Google at the home page (sic) stage, Google loads up OK right away. I've checked the shortcut details on my desktop, which is all fine. Why won't this pretty simple requirement work?

It seems like when I have the Tools .. Options dialog active, that makes the entire session crash. I have not gone through all the steps to determine whether the crash will stop if I disable an extension. But I thought that Classic Theme Restorer should be harmless. Likewise with my selected theme, I will try disabling one or both of those. LastCrash is 1455739927

Crash ID: bp-3b5f1371-860d-476f-960d-d4f182160217 Crash ID: bp-fdaa2980-c244-48f0-886e-fa1d42160217

In recent weeks, I have encountered more than a few websites that Firefox (ver. 44.0.2) does not handle. Main my problems have been (1) either the browser fails to respond when clicking "submit" or (2) page printing produces garbage. I have reproduced these problems on two Windows 10 machines running Firefox, so I don't think the problem is my installation. Moreover, in every instance, my problems have been solved by switching to Chrome or Edge and completing the same actions. All other aspects of Firefox are working perfectly on my machines.

Might anyone have suggestions about what is going on here?

I have used Firefox almost since its inception. While I have, over time, flirted with other browsers, I've always returned to Firefox. But these recent problems may be the last straw because they impeded workflow, increase frustration and require a significant commitment of unnecessary time. Whether the issue is with Firefox or particular websites really does not matter because the result is the same.

Thanks for your help.

When I load SalesForceIQ from a saved bookmark it only displays in a partial window about 1/3 and on the left side. Here's the URL, https://app.salesforceiq.com/app.html#/home I have tried other websites and they load correctly. I also tried Chrome and SalesForce load just fine. Then I open the history window and select SalesForceIQ - loads OK.

I am running Win7 I tried to load SalesForceIQ from my laptop, using WinXP and FF - load just fine. I have cleared my cache - no change. I have completely removed FF and did a fresh install - no change.

So any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Dave

Lately every time I go to a different site at the top of the page I get a small bar the length of the window saying: "Firefox prevented this page from automatically reloading". I can either click on "Allow" or "X". When I click on "Allow", it just keeps popping back up, so I always end up just clicking "X" to get it off till I go to another site and have to do it all over again. Is there something wrong here? How & what can I do to get rid of it? Thank You PattiT

This problem started on Wednesday, before then, it didn't have any issues with scripts.

I've recently started a web page of my own on Weebly.  While the dashboard is usually slow to open, I always put this down to my internet connection. However it normally worked fine.  Then on Wednesday, I got a dialog box saying there was an unresponsive script.  I tried "stop script", and "continue", but the box kept popping up.

I finally selected "debug script", but nothing happens. I am not technologically savvy enough to know what to do next. I've contacted Weebly support, and the page opened fine for the support person that I chatted with. Today, I refreshed Firefox, but the problem still keeps happening. I also tried this in IE, and Weebly wouldn't even open (the old "server can't be found" excuse popped up).

NONE of the websites that I usually visit (Gmail, Faceboo, Yahoo, etc) have this script issue, ONLY Weebly. I am extremely frustrated, and I want to punt the computer across the room, but computers generally frown on rough treatment, so I can't do that.
