So, whenever I go to websites(like someecards, etc) and there are embedded images from Instagram, I can't see the pictures, only blank squares with a clickable description underneath it. I can view the pix fine on Instagram(or sometimes if someone shares Instagram pix on FB, I can see them fine there, too.) Just not embedded.

Any help would be appreciated!

I want to keep my of addons, extensions and plugins private. They can have acceptable content-types, but I don't want content delivery contingent on having/not having elements installed.

I assume this would have to be a per-site configuration item, I would prefer to block all, accept some (like I have to do with flash/java).

Search bar lets me type inside it but gives no suggestions and after I press enter nothing happens. However, using the address bar does work fine. Safe mode solves nothing (for machine 1). Any suggestion? I looked at this link:https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1072262 and was able to resolve the issue by deleting the search.json file on machine 2 (several weeks ago). However, this time I don't see the file (or the others listed).

This is occurring on two different machines exact problem except running in safe mode the search bar DOES work for machine 2. Machine 1: Dell Laptop, running Windows 7 (64 bit) Enterprise (Service Pack 1), running 48.0.1 FF. Machine 1: Desktop, running Windows 7 Ultimate(32 bit) (Service Pack 1), running 47.0.1 FF.

Mysteriously, FF v48.0.1 now launches at start-up. Mac 10.7.5. Just started doing this 3 weeks ago. In system pref, it is not checked as log-in item. Am stuck running on older OS due to vital software that has not been upgraded (replacement software search in progress). Have searched preferences - can find no setting. Have Googled - nothing pertinent, or applied to older versions, not this one. I guess I can deal with it but it's so annoying. My machine is running slow enough as it is, and this slows start-up down.

I was having this issue before, so I did a completely new install of Firefox and it worked normally. I added a couple of what I would call essential add-ons (like Tab Mix Plus and Adblock Plus) and things still worked normally. Everything was completely fine until I logged into Twitter... then the inspector rules stopped showing up again. I tried logging out and running in safe mode, but they did not reappear. It seems completely ridiculous that logging into a website would break something like that, so I'm lost.

Side note: the inspector works normally on all other sites, but the rules would go blank randomly on some from time to time before - I have not experienced this yet with the new install and simply restarting the inspector would make them appear again.

Windows 7 Ultimate; Firefox 48.0.1; 9 extensions and 1 theme installed, but it worked fine with all of them before I logged in and so I would assume is working fine with them now?

"Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page" doesn't keep all websites from reloading.

The results can be annoying, such as fivethirtyeight.com reloading thirty seconds after loading, while I'm trying in another address, forcing me to type again. The results can be migraine-inducing, and potentially seizure-inducing, such as helpx.adobe.com flashing and reloading every few seconds. I seem to recall trouble exiting that page too.

Please do not ask me to refresh Firefox or try Firefox in safe mode. I have a strobe sensitivity, and migraines, and need a number of animation-blocking tools to use Firefox.

Not sure what triggered a recent change: either a Firefox update or a change to my IMAP server password. I used to see all my IMAP folders on Firefox - now I only see the standard folders: Inbox, Sent, Junk, Trash, Drafts. The folders still exist on the server, but don't show up on Firefox. All the folders are marked as "subscribed" on the server.

I have poured over every single article on similar issues with no help. I have tried every single suggestion. After installing windows 10 firefox continuously crashes, I can't open more then 4 tabs at a time. The task manager says Plugin for firefox running at 1.5gb plus firefox itself running at about 1gb. My screen goes black and blotchy and then just dies. Typing this article in itself was painful it is so slow. I'm at my wits end. I feel that obviously everything worked fine on Windows 7 so this definitely has something to do with windows 10. Unfortunately Microsoft is not helpful at all. Surely I can't be the only person with this problem.

Every time (well most times) I put the cursor anywhere in Firefox, a little window appears (I dare not say pops up because it's apparently not a pop-up) with suggestions (copy past, check spelling, save, all the stuff....) and it slows my work down considerably. I click away and it comes back click away again... I don't want them! Nobody does!

On Windows 7 Enterprise, x64, FF v. 48.0.2, tried both x64 and x86 and same problem occurs.

Following launch, FF opens to start page tab, with the default browser question popup. Thereafter, it is unresponsive. Task Manager shows "Not Responding". Processes shown as taking around 145,000K of memory.

I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling multiple times.

I tried to start in Safe Mode from command line, and the Safe Mode dialog appears, but buttons are also nonresponsive and will not proceed.

I do not see any crash reports, just InstallTime files, and the events folder is empty.

I have done numerous malware checks.

I don't know what else to try.

Thanks for any help.

was installing an extension. Firefox prompted me to “Reset The Page”. I misread and thought it said “Refresh the Page”. It did not give me an alert or warning it simply restored it to Factory Defaults and now everything I had accumulated in Bookmarks, Add-ons and Extensions is gone! How do I get them back? It would take me days to replace them manually.

I was attempting to add a screen shot nut your platform is not allowing me. Just imagine a BareBones Version of Firefox. Not normal for this Developer/Designer!

Firefox 48.0.1 crashed a while ago. I quit the application from the crash notification window & restarted my iMac. When I restarted Firefox, the session restore page appeared indicating that I should examine my windows & tabs, but that page contained no windows/tabs. I have no idea how to get back the tabs I had before the crash. The same thing happened recently, but I honestly don't remember whether it was the last time FF crashed, since it crashes not infrequently for no apparent reason.
