Starting this morning, when I tried to open FF, Crash Reporter popped up. When I tried again, same thing. It takes 3 to 6 times of "restart firefox" before FF finally opens.

I restored via MozBackup to a version of a month prior, but no difference.

I tried starting Safe Mode. The first time, it opened. I then closed FF, and every next time, same old problem.

I tried disabling all add-ons. No change.

I entered: about:crashes and got a long list of bp files. What might I try???

B"H

My Firefox crashes on a page from my personal website: http://www.doviddebresser.info/Collection.php?letter=g

These pages show a large amount of small images. The strange thing is that only the letter "g" crashes, and "g" is by far not the page with the largest amount of images (that would be "s").

Another strange thing is that Firefox crashes right away when I try to open the page, not after beginning to open the page, as usually happens when there are too many images on the page, that the crash occurs after Firefox already shows a few hundred images.

I have the latest Firefox version: 46.0.1. Windows 7 with more or less the latest updates. The problem also occurs in safe mode. The problem does not occur using Internet Explorer. I have a few add-ons, like dictionaries, but nothing special. Java is also updated. I also have the Adblock plus extension, but it is de-activated on my userpage.

Our hospital EHR software has a feature that will display the text of a nurses note when a button is clicked in the documents library for the patient. When the button is pressed using FireFox, the window appears, the text appears for a split second and then the box is blank. This feature works well in IE 10 & 11, also in G Chrome and in all browsers the window displays 'about:blank' in the address line. Many of our users (me included) prefer FF and if this issue can be resolved, it would be a real help. I've tried various things recommended by others online; safe mode testing (Neg), clearing cache (Neg), displaying the details window in a tab (Neg).

I went to this website which claimed that if you share a link to it every time someone clicks you get a point and say 8 clicks could get you a voucher for steam or roblox or something like that, this is a link to the site https://EpicCodes.com/ ?ref=853127 basically my malware states that it is a virus and that i need to pay them 65 dollars to get it fixed, i was wondering if someone at firefox could remove the site and any messages on the internet with the link to it, help remove my virus, and tell the other major browsers, thank you.

Accessibility - Voiceover keeps saying "Firefox busy"

Working on implementing/fixing the accessibility features of my client's website, we stumbled on the particular case that Firefox decides to set focus to an <iframe> when tabbing through a page, which no other browser does. The client then suggested that the <iframe> content be given a title attribute (in the <head> of the loaded HTML) so that the Voiceover feature (and its equivalents) reads the <iframe> title out loud.

This should work, however the browser keeps saying "Firefox busy" no matter what we tab onto.

What would cause this situation? We would appreciate some guidance, in order to see if we need to change something in our content, or if this is an issue with Firefox itself. Thanks in advance.

After some extremely bad customer service encounters with Tripadvisor yesterday (they gave me an unsolicited spam phone call, so I pulled up their site to complain and found that they have no customer service contact address), I discovered today that to add insult to injury, the *$%^-ing Tripadvisor pop-unders have caused Firefox to forget my saved session of 60+ tabs! I searched for how to block pop-unders, but all I found was how to block pop-ups, which I'm already doing according to Tools > Options. Can anyone here please tell me how I get rid of these wretched pop-unders and stop that ever happening again? Thanks.
