3 or 4 days ago, a popup came on my Facebook page saying that Firefox needed to be updated or fixed, sorry I don't remember what it said. I clicked on it and kept on the page with no problems. Got off the a page about an hour or so later. Came back later and tried to play a couple of games and they wouldn't load or took forever to load also a yellow lock showed up which was always green before. Went to the Monzilla site and tried to figure out what to do. Reinstalled Firefox as suggested and seemed to work after that. Came back later and tried to get on again and had the same problem. Again reinstalled Firefox, but this time it didn't repair it. Since that time, it hasn't worked to completely open at all. I have tried several times to reinstall since and still won't work or install partly. Have also run Norton complete system scan several times including Norton's eraser still didn't do anything. Been using Firefox for years and never have any problems before, I'm at a total loss.

As you can most likely see, I'm not a computer wiz, but, do use it several times a day.

Updated to Firefox 49.0.2 I go to facebook, and try loading a java game called Bingo Drive. It takes 3 to 5 mins to load the game. Tried running in safe mode.. Same results.. Tried refreshing, it said it had a problem with one of my tabs or something like that..

I usually run it with Adblocker plus and Video downloader helper..

If I go to facebook and load this game in MS Explorer 11, the game loads in 15 seconds.

No idea what is causing this problem of slowness.. It says all my add ons or what ever are up to date.

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.

Was updated to FF 49.0.1. Bookmarks and history all disappeared. Research said the bookmarks backup file in my profile could be opened with FF. It's a compressed JSON file. FF won't open it. If I open it in Word, it's all in some sort of gibberish machine language.

Would like to go back to the previous version of FF but now my Win 7 machine won't Restore to Earlier Time, either. Even with shutting off ALL security apps / programs and even disconnecting from the internet AND disabling all the add-ons, it always seems to go thru the motions but then tells me Restore failed and that I must have some type of AV program running.

WHY do all these changes have to be shoved down my throat?! I liked things the way they were and they worked. I didn't know I could require FF to ask if I wanted an update. How is a person supposed to find out about things like that?!

Hello. I'll do my best to be succinct here.

1. It started with Flash no longer working. Couldn't even load the Flash settings tabs. Worked in other browsers though. Changed some settings as described in these forums. This helped but only briefly. Flash stopped working again.

2. Did the "refresh" thing. This created new problems. Although add-ons weren't displaying in the add-ons tab, they were still there and operating in the background. Flash again worked but only for an hour.

3. I wanted to do a complete delete (using Revo) and re-install of Firefox. Somehow even after doing this, some settings (and incredibly, add-ons) remained.

4. I installed the x64 version, since this would give me a new install and hopefully a fresh start - the previous FF version I was using was the x32 version. This worked for a few days, but again, Flash died completely again.

5. Tried the refresh here too, and oddly, an ad blocking add-on is still operating in the background, even though it doesn't show in the add-ons tab.

6. I tried some other random things I found on these forums and online, such as scanning my hard drive for corrupted files. None were found. Some of the proposed solutions are a bit above my experience level, and/or aren't explained well, so I didn't attempt them.

7. At this time I have Flash working, and still have intermittent ad-blocking. I have no installed any add-ons since doing the refresh on the x64 version. (The x32 version is uninstalled.)

So, (A) what is going on here? (B) Why doesn't Firefox make it easier to do a COMPLETE uninstall and purge of all program-related files, in order to do a true clean install? (C) Any suggestions?

I don't know why - possibly after a firefox update to 49.0.2? But Firefox on Windows 10 is no longer saving or using my saved passwords. When I try to display saved logins, there are none showing. However, I do have intact key3.db and logins.json files, and I can see in logins.json that there are lots of logins stored in there. So I'm sure the data are there, but just not being read.

Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't help. Refresh didn't help. Synch seems to connect, but doesn't help. Isn't there some command to force the browser to read the saved logins file?

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

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?

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.

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 .....?

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.
