Thought I would report on 47. I have reverted to 46.0.1

1. The option for "Don’t load tabs until selected" is gone and it seems like the default is checked. I am not fond pf that choice. 2. Three plugins broken (might be two)

Extended Status Bar and/or Status 4 evar: At least one not working and a lot of status bar goodies missing now. I did not take the time to see which it was or if both. They are back working ion 46.0.1

Bookmark Replace - Stopped working. Needed to revert when I reverted to 46.0.1

Been a while since an update borke things. It did thisd time. I shall stay with 46 until I have confidence those plugins will work with 47.

Very curious if others find the "Don’t load tabs until selected" setting missing as well. Did it get moved?

Frequently when I re-start Firefox (it seems to crash about once a day), the firefox exe process hangs with NO I/O. Firerfox does not even get to the point of asking me if I really want to start in safe mode. I tried getting a dump via the Task Manager, but taskmgr tells me "permission denied". Attached is a screen capture of the latest occurrence. This is the latest FF 46.0.1 on Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.

I have do not have any mobile devices. But I like the Marketplace and the games. It states if I get to FF 48 it is history. I have FF 46.0.1. After upgrading it from 45, it all stopped working. I tried following the directions. But I am a simple minded person and have problems comprehending this stuff. I spent a week correcting a virus the .5 stuck in the computer

Now I would like to install Marketplace since I do not have auto updates. Can anyone tell me the easiest way.

Windows Vista. No, I can't change my OS. I didn't used to have this problem. Firefox downloaded a "security update" <-- it was not a spyware, virus, bug, glitch, flaw or related to any other program or operating system. I'm a systems analyst, I know it was Firefox's own security update. Here was the result:

Everything on the internet now had two problems: 1) Every site is now an "Attack Site" including google.com (not results, the main page) same for ebay.com, amazon.com, etc. 2) Everything now had an infinite number of "incorrect certificates"

I would like to disable delete and destroy these "security" features. I never use the machine to do anything that would ever pose a security threat. I would like to have zero security. I say this because I think it's highly unlikely that there is an actual "fix." I don't need "security" for anything. I would just like to sometimes upload files to the internet.

Right now, my machine has no internet. The "feature" that firefox downloaded blocks all sites on the internet on all browsers. And no, it doesn't block the internet. I can still ping servers. The internet is working fine. It's just "attack site" and "certificate" warnings make the internet inaccessible from any browser due to an update I'm 100% certain came from the Mozilla Firefox update I just received, because I'm never had a problem before on this machine, it happened instantly after the update.

I've been having major problems with cursor control by mouse wheel and keyboard on the Ubuntu install. I've improved it by alterations in about:config, but it's still not right.

I have this install on Windoze Vista that works perfectly, through no fault of my own, just as installed.

Can I simply copy the file from the Windows Vista install to the Ubuntu install to fix it?

If so, what is the file name (about:config ?), and where is it located?

Thanks!

I have SUCCESSFULLY used Firefox in tandem with Kaspersky for several years.

This morning I "REFRESHED" Firefox at the suggestion of a note across the bottom of the browser window that said something like "Firefox seems slow to load. Would you like to REFRESH Firefox to fix this problem?"

My last enquiry regarding my inability to access Google was answered with a statement "unfortunately this issue will be caused by kaspersky security software on your device tampering with secure connections."

UNFORTUNATELY, I CAN NOT ACCEPT THAT. The fault lies in the REFRESHED version of Firefox.

Since my last enquiry, i have found several other problems such as Amazon is impossible to use and my bank's website resets before loading.

This is unacceptable. Please resolve this internal conflict or UN-REFRESH my browser.

Thank you.

Why does Firefox open tabs and crashes even if no malware is found?

Dear all,

The problem: I am accessing a webmail server (Outlook) located at a British university. Either when I log in or log out there, Firefox stops responding. I have to close the window and then restore the session to get my tabs back (which has led me to open very few tabs these days).

The diagnosis: I thought it might be malware, especially because sometimes tabs opened with the name "prosperent.com/", but were not fully loaded. I think whenever I used CCleaner just before logging in, the log in was smooth.

Attempted fixes: - First of all, I reset Firefox internally - to no avail. /// Next, I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but the settings were remembered for some reason. So I uninstalled again, deleted all personal Firefox setting folders and reinstalled it again. Firefox was now pure in start mode - the problem persisted. /// Then, I installed a malware programme to check for hidden viruses in addition to my normal anti-virus programme. The malware programme found a few cookies and deleted - the problem persisted. /// Last, I started Firefox in safe mode, which worked - until I closed the browser and opened it again.

The situation still is that with some pages Firefox opens a tab with the URL "prosperent" and crashes when logging in or out the webmail account. Only when I empty the cache, does the problem not occur, but this cannot be the ideal solution to the problem.

I do not know what else to do now. I would thus be very happy to know what else you might recommend here.

Best wishes, Matt

I've migrated my AMO account to Firefox Account, but i was negatively surprised that we are not allowed to change our email address. We are advised to create a new account, and abandon (or delete) the old one, so is there really no way to keep your reviews attached to your current account now?

I have Mozilla sync'd between my (old) laptop and my phone, and it was a lovely pairing. Old laptop got stolen earlier today, and in setting up my new laptop, I forgot my old password and ended up resetting the password to Firefox Sync on the new computer. I'll hit 'sync now' and nothing happens, no favorites, no tabs, no recent session, nothing.

This computer is running the latest version of mint, and my old computer was running mint 13 I believe. It hasn't been updated in ages but was happily puttering along while I blissfully neglected to update the software to a newer version which may overwork that relic.

1) It takes a long time to star Firefox. 2) It takes a LONG time for pages to load. Internet connection is OK, and MS Edge works fine. But I really prefer Firefox!

I have the latest version of Firefox (46). It even takes a long time to change between open tabs. It just started behaving like this about 3 days ago (around April 29, 2016). I believe I downloaded the new version of Firefox around that time?

Please help. Thank you!

bold text I have WINDOWS Firewall on. I get the following messages when I attempt to reach www.shorpy.com

The connection has timed out

The server at www.shorpy.com is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
