어도브 플레시 플레이어 자체는 크롬과 충돌이 일어나지 않지만 파이어폭스 에서는 플레시 플레이어가 설치가 안되고 자바는 사용할수 없음 으로 나타납니다. (드물게 특정 사이트에서는 오류가 뿜어져 나오고요)

프로그램 추가 제거 창에서 제거시 파이어폭스 충돌이라고 나오고 파폭으로 다시 받아서 설치해도 동일한 현상이 계속 됩니다.

크롬 + 코모도 + 파이어폭스 셋다 포기할수 없어서 그냥 쓰고 있습니다만... 알려 드릴 필요가 있을것 같아서 질문글 올렸습니다.

When I run Firefox it just churns away and expires. Sometimes, if I just leave it, after ten/twenty minutes it will run v, v slowly. I have uninstalled and installed Firefox. I have the most recent version of Avira [14] and have removed Firefox and added to permitted applications, still no joy. Am writing this from another Browser. Also if I close Firefox and then try to restart I keep getting the Firefox is running... Getting seriously annoying now. I can only assume that Firefox is not quite up-to-date with Avira's version yet. The other browser runs without problem.

Any attempt to get to gmail (from google search click on gmail, gmail or gmail.com in url, etc.) results in Unable to Connect -- Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at mail.google.com. This happens only in Firefox running on Server 2008.

I have been googling problem and have cleared cookies, and re-installed. Still have this problem.

I can get into gmail from IE no problem and from Firefox that is running on XP. It is just my machines that are running on Server 2008. This problem just appeared around November 21st.

Thanks for any help!

I have a sony vaio duo 13 which is a sliding laptop tablet hybrid. I run nightly on the desktop for all my web browsing because i guess i am what is called a power user. I need all the options and features that firefox gives us, and don't care for the barebones yet more fluid experience of the Metro app. My problem is that when I am using Nightly in Desktop it runs great, but anytime i close my screen (which doesnt close in the traditional sense, it folds the screen out) and transforms it into tablet mode, it launches the Metro version of Nightly. If i was using the desktop version it transfers all my tabs to the metro app. and when i open the screen to laptop mode, it simply closes everything. AFAIK i don't remember installing the Metro version... I can go to the Start Screen and find the metro app but i am afraid to uninstall it because i think it will uninstall the whole Nightly Application, which i dont want to happen. I created an administrator account and went to the MetroApp repository on the harddrive but there is nothing there related to nightly or firefox so i can't just delete it.

Hi I'm having some issues currently with my Firefox v. 25.0.1. As soon as I start the browser up, it tries to load the restore session page from the previous crash. Pretty much before the page could fully load Firefox would crash.

I have tried to create a new profile and the new profile seems to work just fine but as soon as I try to copy the sessionstore files from the crashing profile to the new profile, the same thing would happen. From time to time I would be able to get the browser working but that's maybe once in 25 or so attempts where it actually loads up correctly for me to restore my past sessions.

Hello everyone, I was happily using Firefox untill few days ago. Since then Firefox takes about five minutes to start (you cant see in taskbar or Application in task manager, just in Processes in task manager). When it finaly opens the first window it is not responding and there just blank window). It does the same in safe mode. I tried to reinstall it several time, with deleting every Firefox related files on computer (following every relevant instruction from Support). I tried to backup my profile and start with new one after reinstall. Every time with same result: Firefox works perfectly after reinstall (even when I transfer files from old profile, every bookmark is right), but when I restart computer the problem is back.

I checked PC for malware and viruses by Avast, there should be now collision with other software since I did not install anything recently. I have cleaned registres, cache and cookies with CCleaner.

I am running 64-bit Windows 7 Lenovo E430, everything worked perfectly for half a year. Only problem I can relate to is a warning message about low free space on system drive, which occured at the same time problems with Firefox started (but it is now even true, I have 5 GB of free space on system drive).

I found other unresolved topics, one of them with same system configuration as mine. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/956861?esab=a&as=aaq https://support.mozilla.org/cs/questions/958824

Any suggestions before I desperately change to Firefox Portable?

I've cleared cookies multiple times

I've emptied the cache

I cleared my download history, and a majority of my browsing history

I've tried having hardware acceleration for both flash and firefox on and off

I turned off all my apps and plugins and when that did nothing I turned back on the ones I need. I never had a lot of apps to begin with. only a max of 5. I had quite a few plugins, but i disabled all but quicktime, flash, and silverlight. I have those three set on "ask to activate" so none are "always active" anymore.

I also tried a couple things from the FAQ and forums here about changing a few settings in the "about:config" setup.

A few of the above things initially worked, but after a day or two it'd be back to sucking up my CPU and memory. I would then try the same thing again, and this second time there would be no improvement. The real memory will fluctuate between 200 MB and 1.7 GB, and has done so for quite a while.

Even after I've left streaming sites, and sites with lots of images, and I'm not downloading anything, the memory and the CPU will still do that. I only have a handful of tabs open at a timeusually, and all of them are mostly text. I'll quit and reopen firefox, which will initially bring the memory and CPU usage down, but it inevitably climbs up quite quickly, regardless of my tab usage. It'll be the same if I'm playing a flash game or scrolling through blogs.

I never had any of these problems with Firefox 23, and my internet usage habits haven't changed at all. I had some of this slowness a few times with version 24, but nowhere near as bad as this, or as constant. Almost everyday I end up googling for other ways to speed things up. Everything I do never slowed down Firefox on earlier versions.

I've tried all my usual tasks on Safari which will never climb above 30-40 MB of memory, even on netflix streaming, or flash games, and the CPU will average around 8 and 11%.

Give us a link to revert, or tell us your done trying so we don't waste any more of our time our time in futility.

When I click on the Mozilla icon in the task bar to open the browser the browser window does not show up on the screen. I know it is opened because when I drag the mouse over the Mozilla icon I can see the page in the small screen I can click on that but it still does not appear in maximized size. I can click on the x in the small box and Mozilla will close.

I did nothing to cause this just left my desk for a minute came back and could not get the window to reappear. Tried to update the program but that did not change anything.
