I have a Mac and have Firefox 43.0.4 for my browser. I couldn't get an interactive website to work so did something with javascript. It was the wrong thing to do.

Gmail msg says: "JavaScript must be enabled in order for you to use Gmail in standard view. However, it seems JavaScript is either disabled or not supported by your browser. To use standard view, enable JavaScript by changing your browser options, then try again."

Somehow I ended up disabling javascript and now can't reactivate it. I need help as non of the sites are working now.

Thanks.

Hi all,

     I'm using the latest version of FF 53.0.3 (32-bit) on Windows 7, and lately, every single tab loads slow with a momentary pop-up stating "a web page is slowing down your browser".  The pages do end up loading, and I see others have this problem as well.  I am wondering if it's because Flash (again using the latest version) no longer works as Firefox has done away with all add-ons??  Getting extremely frustrated with Firefox.  I don't get these error pop-ups in Chrome!

While playing FarmVille 2 foxfire keeps hanging - says at top "not responding". I can load game and play for a few minutes but then hangs. Sometimes it hangs right after loading. Will not come back so I have to quit foxfire. I have been having the problem in last several weeks but yesterday it got really bad. I usually only had to restart foxfire once to get it to work. I have tried refreshing foxfire. Also disabling hardware acceleration. My plugins are up to date. My computer is only 1.5 years old and I have windows 10. I can play FV2 on Google Chrome and MSN edge but both are slow and jerky. I really prefer foxfire over the other ones.

HI, I've been having this problem with Firefox for the last two days. It does not display context and formatting of websites like Reddit, Mozilla, and sometimes YouTube. It has said many times that websites like youtube have an untrusted connection, and shockwave flash crashes. I tried uninstalling , cleaning, and reinstalling Firefox, I tried repairing it also.. I updated java, Flash, and shockwave. Did a complete scan of my computer with my Antivirus and Malwarebytes.

None of these problems are on Chrome or Edge.

I'm on a Mac, running with OS X Version 10.11.3, "El Capitan".

I just updated Java to Java 8 Update 73, the latest. Firefox is updated automatically and is now Firefox 44.0.2. Java fails verification on java.com with the message "We are unable to verify if Java is currently installed and enabled in your browser." The Java plugin is not listed on the plugins list page in Firefox (Tools / Add-ons / Plugins).

This is a replay of a question I asked about two years ago (archived, at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/975269). The versions are later. Firefox was starting in 32 bit mode, but this time unchecking that didn't help. Also this time, I "refreshed" Firefox, which I did not do last time, but that only helped temporarily.

Sometimes, when I'm lucky, I can verify the latest Java update on java.com. When Firefox is then closed, JavaAppletPlugin.plugin is listed in the [PLUGINS] section of pluginreg.dat. After Firefox is restarted, JavaAppletPlugin.plugin is listed in pluginreg.dat in the [INVALID] section, and Java verification fails.

My firefox has been crashing about 10 times day for about 6 months now. I've updated everything in my computer and all the firefox add ons. I've even updated to Windows 8.1 from Windows 7 and still the same problem. I'm starting to think its a hardware issue. I've even tried using Chrome. I'm still having the same problem and get the "aw snap" when browsing. The only plug in I have is Adblocker. The the extensions are Shockwave, shockwave for director, Adobe acrobat, and OpenH264 video codec by Cinsco. I've updated everything. Reinstalled everything and now started to buy new hardware. Recently put Windows 8 on a brand new hard drive and still having the same problem. I'm almost considering buying another motherboard. I have my crash dump file that I can send if anyone can help.

I am attempting to import HTML files from one computer to a new one & keep getting 'Warning Unresponsive Script' messages. I have had at least 10 & each time have to press the 'stop script' button. I have no idea how long this is going to go on for. How do I stop this stupid unhelpful process & just import my HTML files?

I am using Windows XP Pro and Firefox 41.0.1.

Is there an issue with the Java website when using Firefox Version 41.0.1?

When I go to the Java website to check that the latest Java update is installed, the box does not scan for the latest update. I checked that the latest update for Firefox was installed, cleared Firefox cookies, and closed and re-opened Firefox but the Java website is not working.

Anyone aware of this issue?

However, I can go into 'Add-Ons' within Firefox to check that the plug-ins are up to date or manually check the Java Downloads website for the latest Java version., both of which I did, and Java is up to date.

Since the last Firefox update, I have been experiencing issues with Yahoo Mail. I am using Windows 7 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop, and my security is provided by Kaspersky, which I just recently updated as well. At first I thought the issue was related to the Kaspersky update, but apparently not since Yahoo Mail works just fine in Internet Explorer. I do not, however, want to use Internet Explorer; I much prefer Firefox.

The problem is that when I log in to my Yahoo Mail account, the drop down menus don't work, for instance, Settings, Account, and Sign-out. Moreover, if I want to reply to an email, I have to keep clicking on "Reply" and sometimes even click "R" on the keyboard before the dialogue box opens. The same thing happens when I want to Forward an email. What's more, when I try to delete emails or empty the Spam or Trash boxes, I cannot always accomplish this by checking emails and then clicking "Delete." Sometimes I instead have to resort to checking off messages and then using 'Delete" on the keyboard. Finally, when I get ready to sign-out of Yahoo Mail, I have to click on Home, go to the Yahoo homepage, and only then will the drop-down menu work so I can log-out. One thing I have noticed is that there are no longer ads on the right-hand side in Yahoo Mail. there is only the a blank box with the word "Ad" in red letters the upper right corner, so I wonder if this absence of ads is somehow related to the issues I am experiencing. I am not tech savvy, so I would greatly appreciate if someone could address this question, and if you know what's causing the problem, tell me how to resolve it but tell me in layman's terms. :-) Thank you.

When I'm browsing on Firefox (always different websites) I often get error messages that say "A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue." The script identified is nearly always something different.

Frequently I'll be on one website and it will suddenly slow down or freeze, and I will get a series of these error messages - often a minute or more apart from one another - and I will be unable to do anything else on my computer (on or off firefox) until the issue has resolved itself, because things will move so incredibly slowly. Even just minimizing firefox may take up to five minutes. Sometimes I stop the script, sometimes I let it continue, and I always check "don't ask me again," but it doesn't do anything.

This situation happens perhaps eight times a day and I'm easily losing 15 minutes PER HOUR to it. This can't possibly continue, and I'm not sure what to do.

Hello.

I am using Windows XP and Firefox V.43.0.4

Firefox was used to check for the latest version of Java. A newer version was found so Java was updated. The older version was deleted automatically without any issue and was also removed from Add/Remove Programs.

However, when I went back to into Java to check for the latest version, using Firefox, it states 'Unable To Begin UnInstall Process: Out Of Date Java Versions Were Not Uninstalled'-Is this a glitch since the older Java version was deleted during the new version update process?

FF needs to become "smarter" about Restoring. Only do a chunk of say 10 tabs at a time, and improve the error recognition & handling so it doesn't just spin forever. Sometimes it doesn't even show the spinner; just won't respond & Activity Monitor says its Not Responding. Can't tell if the Not Responding is due to an active but CPU stealing process that is proceeding, or a stuck process where I should Force Quit. Just have to let it go for 10 minutes before Force Quit.

Restore needs to have a popup window that tells me exactly what tab it is actively Restoring at the moment, and a timer showing how long it was been working on that Tab. And I need to be able to tell FF how long to try before abandoning that Tab. I need to be able to tell it to abandon that tab sooner via a click button. Abandoned tabs go into a menu for me to mess around with later.

Noticed that mozilla.org is often "on top" when FF hangs up. And just now, navigating from the main mozilla page to here (3 layers deep?) I had to wait 5-10 seconds for each page to load. Is the mozilla server just underpowered for the amount of traffic, or what?
