Everytime I play a game, firefox decides to pop up about 20-30 pages of my homepage. How do I stop this? I scanned my computer for viruses and have adblocker and none of these work are contributing. Its been going on for 2 weeks now. If I'm not using firefox, it happens on Chrome as well.

My Firefox 32 .0 is using lots of CPU, and it frequently goes into "not responding" state. I restarted in safe mode, and the same condition happened. Is there any way for me to determine what tab(s)/URL(s) are causing the problem? I really do not want to start closing each of my many tabs and windows one-by-one to see which one(s) might be causing the problem. I am running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. Thanks.

Firefox has been running slow upon opening and slow upon closing .( Hanging; with up to 500k in memory. To close now I must end task via the Task manager. it is so bad I must use "the other guys" browser that begins with "I" and ends with "R" in order to contact you.

The following, are solutions I have tried.

Safe mode disabled add-ons and plugins removed cookies, session, places, SQLite files among others as suggested deleted old profiles; created new profiles re-installed, fresh installs of various versions * after removing all traces of FF on the system run various virus, malware checks *including Microsoft, Malware Bytes, Trend Micro (full system online scan which took hours to complete). replaced the Time Warner Cable Modem Tried with and without add-ons directly connected from the Modem to the Computer bypassing my router. spent hours trouble shooting using various recommendations and suggestions via the internet and this forum to no avail. and have accomplished nothing accept make the situation worse.

its a miracle if I can get FF to start even in safe mode .

I am handicapping you I am sure since I am unable to provide more trouble shooting information. I don't know how to get it from FF into IE. for that I apologize. Currently using

windows 7 home sp1 64-bit I7 3770 16.0 gig RAM

FF Ver. 41.0.2 yes I know it is a tad older but the problems remain regardless of version. 

I am lost, old, and tired after having spent countless hours on this and not being to familiar with Forums, I am begging for help and thanking you in advance for it.

Cheers,

Adobe Flash Player Making Firefox Crash/Hang

So, I've been having this issue for sometime now. I went through all the help pages, read through all the different ones on Mozilla support and Adobe's official forums, and I haven't been able to stop it from crashing.

It started around a month ago, and I've just been trying to deal with it, but it has gotten to a ridiculous level of hanging. It almost never crashes, but it hangs indefinitely making me have to end it in the process area of the Windows Task Manager. It hangs when I open a new tab, when I'm mid-video, when I just leave it for too long, and randomly whenever it feels like it. And each time it looks different.

I also have some of my most recent crashes here if they are helpful:

I had about 20-30 tabs open, but that has never been an issue. Firefox was slow to load an active page, and suggested restore. I clicked restore and tried to reopen firefox. the main page came up and then crashed. I tried again and it crashed again. I opened in safe mode, and it crashed. I uninstalled from the app folder, opened opera to download and reinstall, and it still crashed. That was two days ago. I cleaned everything off the computer related to firefox in the spotlight search, and uninstalled and reinstalled. It opened for a little longer, and crashed again.

I realize this may only be something cosmetic, but it is something that shouldn't happen. I've only noticed it in the past couple of days, since I upgraded to v47.0 (on a Slack64 v14.1 system). Everything, except that arrow, still seems to work as it always has. I'm not talking about the arrow on the "Downloads" button itself, but the animated arrow that shows a download has completed. It used to appear small, grow larger, and then disappear. Now, it does everything but disappear. Parts of it disappear if I hover over buttons it is covering. It disappears completely if I right click on the toolbar and select "Customize", or if I restart Firefox; I find both of those options to be a bit much.

I get this message every time I try to browse.... This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to services.addons.mozilla.org, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

I am at a company, where we have a strange problem. On our mac´s that is running firefox, latest version, they can access our internal portal fine from our headquarter. They open the firefox, and are asked to login - and then it works At one location however, when starting firefox the login page also comes - but then when trying to login, the login site is just reloaded. There is no error or anythig. So it must be somekind of location problem

What is the best way to debug such a error. If there is somekind of firefox log somewhere, where I can see what is going on, since login is not working?

In the past week or so, I've been having daily crashes with Firefox 35.0.1 after not having them, at all, for months. It doesn't happen on any particular sight, but it seems to involve how this version renders graphics. Sometimes, I'll be viewing a page and as a scroll down parts of the page black out and/or the graphics at the top repeat unto the bottom of the page as a scroll. Often, I just close out the page and then go back, but that doesn't always fix it. Eventually, the whole page crashes and I get an error asking me if I want to close out of plugin container afte the crash. This has happened while scroll down Flickr and on some newspapers I read online.

Is anyone else having this problem? It seems as if this is a problem with Firefox and not my computer. I've changed nothing on my system, recently, that'd explain this. I have no viruses or malware on my computer. All my plugins are up to date, and I even uninstalled and reinstalled Flash hoping that that would help. Could it be some of the add-ons I have active?

We'll soon be using a core program in are organization that works better on Firefox than in IE. However, We are at a point where Java 7u67 is the supported version of Java. Having installed Mozilla Firefox v.33.1.1 I find that it is rejecting Java 7u67 for security reasons. Is there a way to allow the use of 7.67 with our core application?

I have no idea what I can do to fix the problem.

I'm using two displays and several desktops on my Mac (OS X 10.9.4). When I need to restart Firefox, it remembers to open windows from last session in correct display, but does not remember which desktop was used for each window. So when the application starts, it opens all windows on a desktop which is currently active instead of reopening them on desktops used during the last session. How to fix the issue?

twitter.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.enflick.com, enflick.com (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Enflick.com is the creator of the online text app i use, TextNow. I don't why it says anything about enflick when It ry to get on twitter. My time is right and I cannot bypass the error by clicking I understand the risks.
