Hello the old motherboard (Nforce 410/ Geforce6100 AMD X2 4200) finally died, found a newer (used) board with CPU and RAM. Now have Asrock 960GC-GS, AM FX 4300, 4GB DDR3

XP repair OK, most things running alright. Firefox and the avast anti-virus are crashing.

The dump says exceptionillegal instruction. What does that mean? Something wrong with my CPU ? Firefox running an instruction not supported?

It crashes at startup, but not every time. Currently using onboard video (ATI Radeon 3000 graphics) HW acceleration off.

Please advise here's the ID of some of the crashes

Hello,

Firefox crashes randomly.

- I updated Firefox to latest version - I tried in safe mode - I tried on two different Windows version ( formated two hard drives ) - I tried on two different hard drives - I tried initial graphic cd rom drivers and latest graphic drivers - I tried two different graphic cards - I tried two different DIMM Ram - I tried to format bios and load default bios settings

Google chrome is also crashing randomly. Only Internet explorer is working. ( Microsoft Edge ).

Here are my crashes:

Plugin container often takes 75 to 80% of memory even when all addon's have been removed/deactivated

I've been using Firefox for years...since early 2005 and it has been a dream. But recently it has started to crash and the Plugin container regularly uses 50% of my memory and this has increased to over 95% causing the computer to freeze altogether. Even trying to open task manager to close Firefox has on one occasion taken 20 minutes. This seems to have only recently started to happen since I "upgraded" to Firefox ver 49.0.2 I have tried installing earlier versions, but keep getting annoying popups to upgrade, so I've reinstalled 49.0.2. I know earlier versions may have security issues, but anything has to be preferable to the Plugin container taking over my computer. It still happens now, even thought I have disabled all my plugins/add-ons listed below I have an Acer laptop with 4Gb memory and running W 8.1 Help in resolving this would be appreciated Eddie

Hi. Been having an issue with Firefox this last week (though it's happened before, just not to this extent) in that's it's being incredibly slow and moves at the pace of a snail. To give some examples, when I try type (like right now) there's a delay for the words to show up instead of popping up as I type. Another is the browser seems to freeze up for a couple seconds when I try and scroll up or down, before doing at an quick and uneven pace.

I'm uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox (reinserting my profile after doing so), disable all themes, plugins and add-ons, restarted Firefox in safe mode, and none of these have made a positive difference (in some cases it actually made it worse).

Any way of fixing this? I've been using Firefox for years now and I don't relish the idea of having to transition to another browser if hte problem could just be solved on its own.

After using firefox for a while (usually longer than an hour consecutively) I will occasionally scroll on a webpage, only to have the scroll icon which appears not disappear after I have stopped scrolling. Interestingly, the scroll bars do not disappear even upon closing firefox; currently, the only way I have found to get rid of them is to restart my pc. I have attached some screenshots to better convey this issue, and if there is anything else I can do or provide let me know!

Thanks

I have a continuing problem with Junowebmail on Firefox. It frequently crashes. It stalls out entirely than starts again. I have no extension running in firefox. In the past I adjusted the 'ABOUT:CONFIG' settings for network pipeline. This took care of some of the problems with typing Emails on juno. But now the juno website causes Firefox to lock and crash frequently. I don't have this problem on Safari or Chrome. Any suggestions. I am running an IMAC with the latest software version and everything up to date. It has plenty of room on the hard drive and again no other browsers have this issue with Juno.

After my husband logs in and Firefox starts up, he continues to get window to Restart Firefox To Update. When I click on About Firefox it also indicates that we have to Restart Firefox To Update. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox from Mozilla.org 3 times now and this problem continues. Refresh also does not eliminate the problem. Clicking on Firefox in Applications file identifies version as 49.0.2. Operating system is OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

When I log in to Firefox under my user, I do not have any problems.

When I browse to https://www.pandora.com/ I get the "Secure Connection Failed" error with exactly the same text as in the screenshot at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/secure-connection-failed-error-message

This is a really poor error message. It tells me nothing about what's actually wrong and how to fix it. WHY did the secure connection fail? Is there any way to find this out?

The site gets an A- from SSL labs https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=www.pandora.com&lates... and definitely supports TLS 1.2, so I'm pretty sure the problem is with Firefox and not with Pandora, but the error message is horrible regardless.

Hello

Since the latest update of Firefox, all our Terminal Servers (2008 R2 and 2012 R2) with Applocker enabled are unable to use Firefox, either for admins or users. It works only if you specify everyone or a specific user in the Applocker rule, but not for groups as it was before. With version 49.0.2 it works perfectly.

I think something in Firefox was changed that impact the way applocker rules are processed.

Could you please help ?

Thanks

OK, so what in the heck is going on ..... !?

It seems like ever since a few MS patch Tuesdays a while ago my Firefox'es are now acting like crap ..... I'm getting constant crashes and restarts! I can't even run it on some machines at home now so I have to use chrome because flash stuff keeps barfing ....

I'm also getting this constant crap where its asking me where it keeps asking me if I want to allow all of my add-in's - constantly!! (see attachment) It opens multiple tabs across the top for each of my add-in's - "oh do you want to allow this" - well DUH - WTF ?? - I added them in for a reason!!!

I am getting so pissed with Firefox I've even resorted to added Chrome on to all of my systems, Booo!

It used to be a good stable browser, why is it screwing up the same way on 5 different PC's? Yes, you can tell from my tone that it's driving me nuts!!! It almost feels like MS did something in the last few batches in Patch Tues to deliberately screw up Fire fox!!

Is anyone else seeing this .....?

I don't want the browser to autoplay any videos! It bogs down everything because web site managers are too stupid not to limit the amount of video ads they put on one page. If you have several tabs open the browser hangs terribly! I don't want any videos to play automatically and I went into about:config and set the preference to not autoplay videos and yet it still does?? How can I stop this behavior?


And as another pet peeve of mine: why can't firefox switch to some other video player besides adobe since adobe changes daily and constantly has vunerabilities and then you have to reinstall the damn thing every other day or your shockwave stuff doesn't play?? Please do something to stop that behavior as well!

Mozilla vs Wordpress

I am having a problem with the view in Mozilla when attempting to access my blog on Wordpress.

I posted in the Wordpress forum- https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/desktop-apbrowser-using-browser-returns-locked-pages?replies=1#post-2785273 - before I realized the issues is with Mozilla and not my other browsers e.g. IE & Chrome.

I will have to link back to this forum because I am not able to upload a screenshot in the WP forum. I apologize for any confusion. In fact, if you follow the link to the WP form I go into detail.

In light of repeating myself, I realize the screenshot shows my add-ons, but I have attempted to view the pages in safe mode, thus disabling my add-ons. I have also cleared my cache (I do that regularly) and dumped whatever cookies I had and set the browser to accept "sll" cookies, I had been only accepting cookies from sites I visited merely to avoid tracking cookies.

As I said, I go into more depth on the WP forum, mostly because I suspected WP. I was making a post yesterday in one tab and updating one in another and strangely, I had a normal view in the new post page and this blank view in the tab I of the post I was trying to update. At the time, I didn't give it a lot of thought. I simply thought it was a glitch. However, today every link from the front page leads to a blank page like the one in my screenshot, with the highlight in the address bar.

Mind you, if you read my post in the WP forum, they did release an update for their desktop application yesterday/today, and so I still wanted to believe the fault was with them, and it still may be and yet the pages view find in IE.

????????

I'm truly stumped.

I would hate to have to do a clean reinsall of Firefox entirely because I am not sure if it is all Mozilla except that I only get the blank view in Mozilla and not IE.

I am going to link my WP forum Post back to this one so, hoefully, someone can see the screenshot.

As always, any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Upgraded to OS X Sierra. Started Firefox and it crashed about 30 seconds after starting. Tried to restart it. Same thing. Problem continues every time I try to start it. Tried starting it in Safe Mode. Same thing. Tried refreshing it. Same thing. Uninstalled and did a clean install. Same issue. Followed every procedure I could find and nothing seems to work. Kind of wondering what's going on and how I can fix it so I can ditch Safari (useless POS browser)

Not very technical btw.

Thoughts?
