After a refresh FF was not responding correctly so it was uninstalled and reinstalled. I have it back up but now cannot see my saved logins even though I can see the exclusions list just not the passwords. I am using ver. 49 and copied both the logins and key files from the backup into the new "default" profile. When I open the logins file in Scratchpad I can see the data but each entry has a "null" after the "httpRealm" entry:

'id': 1,

     'hostname': 'https://www.google.com',
     'httpRealm': null,
     'formSubmitURL': 'https://www.google.com',

Other than this the file "looks" normal.

For about a week I have been getting a pop up every time I attempt to log onto Firefox. I always click 'no'. Yesterday I installed the latest version of Firefox (49.0) and today my pop up problem continues. I have run antivirus, and malware/spyware scans which have found no problem. I couldn't take a screen shot, but am including photos of the pop up I took with my camera. I need to know if this is from Firefox and I should click 'yes' and proceed (but what is the point? I've checked on Firefox's updater site and it says I have the latest version) Or is this NOT from Firefox? If it isn't, does anyone know how to stop the annoying pop ups? Please advise me.

Firefox crashes on various pages. For example, if I go to "eauclaire.craigslist.org", it will open. If I try to go to "Auto Parts" on Craig's List, it crashes. If I go to "Cars for Sale" it opens. If I go to "Motor Cycles for Sale" it crashes. If I go to "www.Westconsincu.org" and attempt to open my personal account, it crashes. If I go to the "Show details" at the bottom of this page, it crashes. This began on 9/24/2016 coincident with the upgrade to version 49.0.

There isn't any pattern, sometimes it will run for hours (or even days) and other times it will crash after few seconds to a few minutes and crash maybe 2~7 times on re-start. I've tried the troubleshooting tips and checked everything is updated but nothing seems to work. It has been happening for probaly 18 months on various releases, I was expecting 49.01(? whatever number is latest release in Sept 2016) to fix all the issues but still the same problem. It's only happening on Linux based OS, Laptop with Win 10 has only had crashed one time in few months. I wasusing Mint 18 on laptop but it isn't very reliable on wireless connection . Opera isn't having a problem on desktop so I'm pretty sure it's NOT a hardware problem

After a recent firefox update, I realized that I can no longer access my wrt120n linksys router. I go to 192.168.1.1, and it asks for the login info, which I enter. Then it asks for the info again. And again. Incessantly. Hitting cancel after many attempts just takes me to a 401 page. Oddly enough, I can log in fine in chrome, or ie. Router is up to date on firmware as well.

My wife and I both use firefox. I have no issues at all. On her account you she is having issues with saving and using bookmarks. She clicks on bookmarks and continually gets a long pause, then script error, and then the pull down menu drops down, but you still cannot do anything with it. Click on a bookmark and the pull down closes and that's it. On my side it works perfectly. I have reloaded and updated and still the same....this is driving me nuts...any help is appreciated....

Firefox keeps crashing when trying to open the following sites: arconline.co.uk/ www.theforumbarrow.co.uk/ http://www.skiddle.com/

It does NOT crash with many others, for example: http://www.google.co.uk/ http://www.radiotimes.com/ http://www.facebook.com/ https://www.songkick.com/ http://www.bandmix.co.uk/

Here are the last few crash reports: bp-dac0a26c-a6a5-40a6-8319-851092160928 28/09/16 16:00 bp-7203a801-4025-42ad-ab66-5ebac2160928 28/09/16 15:58 bp-e7b1f6a4-3366-40ba-ab51-6c5212160928 28/09/16 15:07 bp-ccef5ec7-487f-406f-944d-5c5d72160928 28/09/16 15:02 bp-32db60c3-188e-4914-b9cd-3bec22160928 28/09/16 15:01 bp-dff136f9-e3dc-4dca-a8d2-2654a2160928 28/09/16 14:59 bp-d08e3ae5-887c-41e4-9c4a-c885e2160928 28/09/16 14:22 bp-132c3941-300a-4c8f-b706-d15d72160928 28/09/16 14:20

I've tried safe mode / disabling plugins, refreshing Firefox, emptying the cache and manually deleting almost all cookies (just kept a few for trouble free sites). I've shut down and restarted the machine along with doing the above.

For info, I have another PC still running XP that works fine.

Any help gratefully received!

Thanks,

Piers.

P.S. It just crashed again when I clicked on the 'show details' button next to the educated guesses about my current browser!

First and biggest problem: When I scroll through a page it freezes up somewhere and whatever is in view gets drawn out. I have unistalled, deleted everything connected to Firefox and reinstalled it. Thought for a few minutes, YES it worked and then. Nope. Back on square one. And this ONLY happens in Firefox. No other program or browser.

Also... now I have lost my English grammar/spellcheck and have no idea how to get it back. Really annoying when every single word is redmarked.

OK; uploading screen shot of problem isn't working either. Fun Fun Fun. It's only 26kb. No picture then.

I have used Firefox for years as it has been one of the best browsers for some of the sites I use. Today? NOT AT ALL. I give up.
