I noticed tonight that some websites were not loading fully on firefox. I tried to use Safari to see if it was a firefox problem but it had the same problem. However, when I loaded those sites on Google Chrome they worked fine.

I tried resetting firefox and clearing the cache but it didn't help so I uninstalled it and reinstalled it but it still won't load those web pages properly. It just shows it as constantly trying to load and bits of the site are missing or broken. I'm on a Mac using Mountain Lion software. I updated the Java plug in but it doesn't seem to have done anything to help the situation.

We have 2 RDP servers with Windows Server 2008R2, we recently upgraded firefox from version 9 to version 17.01 because of flash plugin crashes. After the upgrade firefox crashes very regular for every user.

After opening a site, we see it for a split second and then The following error we get: "Firefox has stopped working"

This is the case for most sites, some sites however do work, like www.google.nl Sites that don't work for example: www.youtube.com www.nu.nl www.unox.nl

I thought it would be flash again. What have we tried: - uninstall Firefox and reinstall it again. - uninstall Flash player and install it again. - Disabled all add-ons - tried save mode - tried this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/922902?esab=a&as=aaq - tried this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=Managing-profiles#os=win7&browser=fx17 - Reset Firefox to factory default - Installed older version 16.02 (after uninstalling 17.01)

I have run a bit out of options. Any help would be very much appreciated!

kind regards,

Joost

Firefox has been freezing constantly for the past 2 days on my Mac Pro, Mac OS 10.8.5, Firefox 35

Have tried the following :

1. Fresh Install 2. Downgrade to firefox 34 3. Closing & unpinning certain tabs 4. Refresh

However ultimately there will come a point where the app will freeze and cease up - consistently when it asks for the master password.

Turning off the master password function has helped but entering back into preferences will crash the app again.

Its not generating crash reports and I was only able to find this possible reference in Console

18/01/2015 21:47:31.000 kernel[0]: firefox (map: 0xffffff801fc1d308) triggered DYLD shared region unnest for map: 0xffffff801fc1d308, region 0x7fff96200000->0x7fff96400000. While not abnormal for debuggers, this increases system memory footprint until the target exits.

Please advise on what I can do to fix the problem.

I am using firefox on both my macs (on is running mountain lion and the other snow leopard. It is annoying that in any fields typing only works upon the first click or ->tab on the field, when I click - for example mid sentence to delete a letter (for example) it does not type and the mac sounds the sound effect of "thump" - when you are trying to type in a non-field. The issue is resolved for that instance when I click into a different field (can be the same tab - for example I am typing into the ebay search tab - click on it a second time (thump - no typing) then click in the address bar, now back to the search - now carefully press the arrow howevermany times I need to get to the desired position or just retype the search string - mightily irritating. Same happens in emails, messages... any field! I really like firefox, after a run in with opera, some trouble with safari (tab support)... it was my favourite, with cross computer spaces... I hope this gets resolved soon.

Just upgraded from version 17 to 20 to find, somehow, Firefox has taken a step backward in how the download window is displayed.

This is the old one: http://limi.net/media/copy_of_Downloadspopulated.png

Look at all that useful information, File name, file size, URL of site, and time/date completed.

Who thought it would be a good idea to take all that info away when "upgrading" to Firefox 20?

Why can't people just do their job right :-s
