I've been having this problem for a couple weeks now. Firefox will hang randomly. I've disabled all my addons to narrow it down and even upgraded to FF 5.0.1 but I still have this issue.

Firefox hangs while browsing the internet. Sometimes, it happens when I click a bookmark in the toolbar, sometimes it happens when I click a link, and even when I'm just scrolling down a page. It does it on sites with flash and without flash, it doesn't seem to discriminate.

Anyway, I love firefox but this is just a killer. It's incredibly frustrating to be in a hurry and have to wait 30 seconds for the it to unfreeze. And..it just did it again as I was typing.

Help me!

Using my Macbook Pro, Late 2008, OS 10.7.5, Firefox 5.0.1, I cannot upload pictures from my desktop to my Facebook page. If I switch to Safari it works no problem. I like the way Firefox works most of the time, but this is irritating.

I am using Firefox 5.0.1.4205 with Windows 7 Home Premium Service pack1. My new tabs in Firefox open with a search engine for imvu rather than google as I would prefer. I can't find an answer to my problem so far because when I try the recommended use of about:config and finding browser.newtab.url; it is not listed. Is this version of firefox to old to have that, or is it just missing? What can I do to get my new tabs to open with a Google search engine. This is on my 80 year old father's computer so he is not likely to upgrade browsers as I would on my home computer. Thank you for any help with this.

I have been unable to update my firefox for ages. When I click to update, it just shows a never ending update. I am running an extremely old version (5.0.1) because when I try to install something newer, I get a not compatible message. My operating system although old, shows on the mozilla site as still being supported. Don't know what to do. I've tried suggestions written in this forum, but none work.

I'm running xp pro sp2 : I recently upgraded to firefox 5 and would like to keep it. everything works great. My problem is that I use the xfinity tv guide online. I can use another guide ,but I like this one. all the set ups on the page ; ie zip code ,channel line up work fine. there is a drop down to change the d.s.t. + or - an hour it lets me select it but nothing changes. It's not on their end, and it works in explorer but its horribly slow and glitchy. I know this may sound petty at best, but I like what I like.... so any ideas ? thank you, ..... shredd
