Using Firefox 43.0.4 but this problem was present in earlier versions. When I read an article on the jpost.com website, once I start reading the comments section, Firefox inevitably locks up (usually after a minute or few minutes). Then Firefox eventually crashes unless the process is killed first by the user.

Microsoft Edge does not have this problem.

Refreshing Firefox only makes it worse because it removes add ons that make FF useful. Then you have to go looking for them again. The real problem is the last update which "Broke" something. After you restart nothing works the way you want, i.e. I hate videos loading when I want to read news. FF has several flash blockers but they get removed when you have to "refresh" because FF is a failure i.e. It also kills the theme, then you harrass us to get themes and other crap??? Whats the point if you continue to make updates that cause it to crash. Get rid of your promotions if your going to continue to break the browser! This has been the continual problem with FF it has all these cool features but they crash when you push out the update because the developers aren't as fast as Mozilla. By the time the dev responds you make another "update" and the evil cycle continues just like GOOGLE!

My Firefox keeps on crashing; it doesn’t seem to matter what I do it seems. I’ve tried deselecting the “Enable hardware acceleration” for the flash player plugin but it still crashes especially when watching videos on YouTube but it generally happens everywhere. I did a memory test on my pc and removed a bad ram card from my motherboard it still crashed and I still got bsod’s. I’ve wiped my SSD, reinstalled Windows 7, and updated all of the software but it still crashes.

Operating system: OS X 10.9

Starting about four months ago, I began to see untitled and non-selectable windows spawning after my browser had been open for a while (i.e. after I visited a few sites). The number of these invisible windows grows over time, but are removed if I close the browser and start a new session. This has persisted through many new versions of Firefox.

I tried turning off all of the add-ons. Still happened.

I tried keeping track of what sites caused the problem. No correlation.

Today I uninstalled Firefox, using AppZapper -- which should have removed everything -- then did a new install. The only thing that I imported were bookmarks from the backup directory in my old Profile folder.

...and it's happening again. Here is a screen shot: http://imgur.com/ojcODd1

Any help would be appreciated.

The problem started with Outlook.com not wanting to send attachments all of a sudden. Unfortunately I let somebody from the Microsoft support mess about with my computer through a remote app and now it's gone from bad to worse. On every site I visit, I get the This connection is untrusted error and when I just go through to the site, the website doesn't show properly. I don't get images, just the words as links. I then reset my system a couple of days back through system restore but that didn't help. I have uninstalled Firefox and downloaded a new version. Still the same problem. I have deleted cert8 but that didn't help either. I know the guy did something in Troubleshoot Problems so my guess is that he deleted a certificate of some sort but I don't know how to get it back. My partner uses Firefox and he has the same problem at the moment that Outlook.com can't attach files.

I hope someone can help me as I'm at my wits end at the moment. Thanks. (I'm surfing in Chrome at the moment as Firefox doesn't work)

This has been going on for longer than I should have let it. For the record, I have tried going into Safe Mode but it didn't fix the issue. The crashes that I receive are random. I can be watching a video or I can just be reading something on a forum, regardless the browser crashes. I had a Java Applet plugin that was out of date so I also tried disabling that but I still had the crashes. Any help would be greatly appreciated, here are a couple of my crash reports.

I've had this problem since version 44.0, but when I post comments to WordPress (https://wordpress.com/) blogs, what happens is not what is supposed to happen - the comment either automatically posting or saying "awaiting administration" - but the page reloads as if the comment went through, but instead it takes me back up to the top of the page, more particularly to the address bar and the url is the url of the page, but with a "#" sign at the end.

I considered this may be the problem with a particular WordPress blog, so I wrote the creator. He told me he hadn't blocked me and that other's comments were coming through. So, I've seen been on other pages, but the same problem occurs. All I can think of is that it must be a particular personal Firefox setting or the browser as a whole.

Anyone else having this problem?

Sorry, but to be honest with every update FF becomes worse and worse. It's sad because for me it is (on the edge already to say it was) the best browser.

After the latest update I have one more issue - when cleaning history manually (besides that that time Adobe Flash process opens even on a blank tab and I close it from Task manager) the CPU usage becomes extreme. I always clean my history manually, because I wanna chose what to be Forget That Site or only Delete Page (so to keep the cookies for certain pages). I do this everyday. CPU usage jumps up to 90% and when I close FF it stays in Task Manager forever with 60% CPU usage and can't close itself. I need to end FF process every time.

Because all recent issues I disabled many addons. When Googled issues with Adobe Flash (which also might mess with history cleaning) I read some blame AdBlock+ or/and NoScript that in their job of blocking ads and scripts they could cause FF slowness and high CPU usage.

Hello everyone

I think that recently I had to update Flash version and it was all okay even after the update. But yesterday videos on YouTube all of a sudden stopped displaying. Just like that, in the morning they were okay and then around of noon, all of sudden blank. Didn't install anything new or something.. now I only get White screen with no any border, just an empty spot where the video should be. Beside that, any other flash content [i.e. videos on Facebook, vimeo are not displaying as well]. All I get on YouTube is constant "loading" indicator beside the cursor which keeps blipping.

Now the strange thing is first - I have no problems with this on other browsers like i.e. Google Chrome, and second.. IF I uninstall Flash from my PC, I can watch YouTube videos on Mozilla although the max resolution is 720p.. and vimeo/facebook videos will still not work. How da heck is that even possible? O.o

I've tried a lot of different things and nothing helped.. here are some of the them [I hope I won't forget something]

- Uninstalling Mozilla/Flash then installing them again - Uninstalling Flash, then letting Mozilla suggest me to add it - Disabling/Deleting all of my extensions - Turning off that hardware acceleration thingy - Deleting cookies from YouTube then adding them to exceptions - Clearing out whole history/cache or whatever - Right clicking on the "empty space" where video should be.. to see if any options will pop-up [Of course they don't, there is no video to start with] - Scanning for viruses [Nothing]

Can anyone please help me? Any suggestion, what can I do?

I'm using latest flashplayer, and I guess firefox (32.0.2) too couse I have automatical updates. For addons I use adblockplus, youtube high definition 32.0 and proxymate.

For plugins i use adobe acrobat 11.0.9.29, Java se7 u67 10.67.2.1, pando web plugin 1.0.0.1, shockwave flash 15.0.0.152. 

I have read about adblock plus can couse this problem but when I disable it, nothing changes. Also i have reinstalled flash player, firefox used Ccleaner to clear all cookies, history, etc. and it doesnt help. I have tried Google chrom with same addons and it works, but i dont want to use Google chrom so i ask you what to do.
