I've used Firefox for years. A few months ago it got wonky & would hang when I'd try to shut it down. I eventually reloaded it, and it will not work at all. No error msgs, just won't connect or do anything anything. I really prefer Firefox to Safari and would love to be able to use it again.

Hi,

I posted this question some time ago and since i didnt get any working solution and I still have this issue I am reposting it now. My problem is simple: I start up my computer and open Firefox. I browse the internet normally. No problem so far. But lets say I go to take a nap or I just stop browsing to do something else on the computer without closing Firefox or whatsoever. After a while I go back to browsing on Firefox (the same window with the same tabs are still open) but now no page will finish loading no matter how long i wait.

So I close Firefox and open it again. Then I get a popup error saying Firefox is still running and that i need to close it. When i close that popup then i get another error saying it was unable to load my profile. I close that and reopen Firefox. Now it loads pages normally again but but only for 1 or 2 minutes and not any more after that. I repeat the whole process and i still get the same results until i restart my computer.

I have checked for any viruses and i have none at all and there is absolutely no problem with my overall connection since no other programs have this problems only Firefox. What can i do?

Thank you.

Edit: Im having the issue right now and I just checked but seems like some tabs work and some dont so i really dont get it.

Alright. I am using this on a separate system running Vista. Connects to the internet via Ethernet and wireless. When I try opening it during boot, it works fine. Anytime else and it runs in the background without loading the U.I. Same goes for IE. Chrome is the only one that works perfectly fine. I've reinstalled it and still didn't work. I've ran the maintenceservice.exe, and it did nothing. Note: I am writing this on a separate system.

Hello Mozilla, I'm using Firefox 36.0.1, my OS is Windows 7.

After I update to Firefox 36.0.1, every time my network disconnect ( my router is disconnected once a day), I can't use Firefox so that I must close it. But after closing, firefox process still remain and I can't terminate it by Task Manager. if I try to open application again, I will report that "Your firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible".

So that I must restart the computer to kill firefox process. When I open Firefox again, the report is the same. I did clean reinstall once, but can't solve the problem. I'm very tired when syncing my profile again and again ( It's lucky for me because I signed an account for syncing).

Please answer me soon. Thanks for your help.

Please note that this issue never occurred before the update and it's extremely annoying! I also tried to close Firefox by using the "Exit Firefox" button but it still gives those error messages. Please advise on how to proceed! Thank you!

I've read and tried MANY supposed fixes for this problem, but, so far none have worked. Constantly says FF is already running, but not responding. I have to kill it in Task Mgr. everytime.

After FF opens, the little circle on the tab rotates and says "Connecting". That's all I can get out of it.

Uninstalled and installed numerous times to no avail. IE 11 works great (can't believe I just said that--lol).

Have tried "No proxy" and "Use system settngs"--still a no go.

Created new User Profle--still a no go.

Open Add-ons mgr.--just says "Loading" until I clck Extensions, then "You don't have any add-ons of this type installed"

Click Plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. automatically installed by Mozilla...)--Always Activate Primetime Content Decryption provided by Adobe Systems, Inc.--Always Activate Windows Activation Technologies--Ask to Activate

I haven't installed any plugins--these were already there.

Please help. I used to install FF and then off to the races I'd go, but not this time.
