When I try to load a webpage that is part of a secure message group, I am getting a "Header overflow" error and the message does not open. I can go to the main website fine and open all content except the message boards. I had been using FireFox on Win XP when the problem first started. Initially Win 10 on a different computer worked, but now I am getting the same error message. If I use IE the messages open fine.

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.

Hello - I have to take a training course for my job via pre-recorded sessions. All worked well until Firefox ran an update last night, now the video portion of the display won't work. I can hear the audio but the picture portion is now blank. Does Firefox have a solution for this?

I've updated FF from 48.0.2 to 49.0.2 and all my saved passwords are gone. The "Show passwords" button is blank. FF no longer asks to save my password. Did an uninstall, removed profile and reinstalled. No luck. Key3.db (and others) is not created. If I go back to 48.0.2, everything is fine.

I have tried the following:

Loaded new Firefox, refreshed Firefox, checked for errors and problems using Glary utilities, compressed all files for more room, opened in safe mode, did disc cleanup, deleted empty and duplicate files, checked how much space I have in C drive properties which is used space 38.3 GB and free space 244. GB. My computer came with 2 GB DDR3 memory. I have also set up my history to be deleted when I shut down the computer to take up less space. I am not computer savvy and don't know what else to do. Also, I don't know a MB from a GB so please talk to me like I'm a dummy.

Thanks

I'm using a Mac (OSX 10.9.5 Mavericks), and just updated to the latest version of Firefox: 49.0.2. However, every time I start Firefox, I get a prompt telling me to restart to update to the latest version (which happens to be 49.0.2). Even after clicking the "Restart" button in the prompt, it just restarts then immediately tells me to restart again.

The odd thing is, I have another user account on this machine where that is not happening. That account is using 49.0.2 and does not receive the update prompt.

Flash ran fine until I updated to the latest version. When trying to play a flash game the leak adds 100mb of memory usage every couple of seconds. HUGE GIANT MEMORY LEAK. other browsers are fine. Everybody with firefox is reporting memory leak problems after the update. I have a 144hz monitor and firefox still is syncing to 60fps after upgrading to 64-bit firefox. I asked for help about a long time ago. Firefox was really good until 64-bit. Did they hire college students to make the 64-bit? I'm switching to chrome right now but I will keep checking back on this post forever like I have my last one..!.. tyvm

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.

So there is this one website I occasionally watch videos (http://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/) and recently I noticed when I play videos all the control buttons like pause, play, rewind, volume no longer appear on the video. I tested it on Safari and the controls are there but I can not get Firefox to display them. I've tried disabling all my add ons and extensions, I've updated Firefox and no effect. In fact if i disable the ad blocker and click on the playing ad which pauses it I have to restart the whole video from the beginning since there is no play button there is no way to restart the ad to play it out. I've checked other websites and all the video controls display. Any help would be appreciated, I find this whole thing quite baffling.

When I first start Firefox, videos and GIFs on sites like Facebook and Youtube, etc. will play with no problems but, after Firefox has been running for a while, they won't play anymore. The only way I can get them to play again, is to close Firefox then start it up again. Running the 64 bit version in Windows 10.

Hello. Recently i was browsing with my FireFox and discovered something odd/strange.

Usually whenever i start up firefox, even on just the basic homepage, it starts up with Plugin Container in the background.

Now sometimes it does not show up with plugin container at the background at all.

Now this bothers me because a reset made the plugin container show up each time I open firefox.

I'm not sure if this is a major scale problem, but in short, is there a way to disable plugin container from showing up in the task manager list?
