How do I make Firefox quit reloading web pages multiple times (while I'm reading a page), so the back button will go back to previous page

The back button has not been working properly for maybe a month. I've finally addressed the problem but have no solution. Updated to Firefox 43.0, disabled all my add-ons plus reverted to default header, then also ran the refresh which deleted my add-ons. This problem happens on multiple web sites. I'll click on Rawstory.com (as an example), then click on an article and start reading it. While the page doesn't appear to reload as I read, I have noticed that the little Rawstory icon in the tab winks (as if reloading the page). This happens over and over again. Now I know to pull down the window under the back arrow to see what happened. The last page that I read ended up showing up 9 times under the back arrow, even though all I'd done was click on it once and read the article. I've wondered if my clicking on the scroll bar to read down the article is somehow causing this problem (ditto for using my fingers on the track pad). Thanks for your help.

Hi everyone !

I'm currently using Mozilla Firefox v.49.0.2.

I'm quite desperate after spending over 45 hours in working around to resolve the following specific problem that's appeared only with Mozilla browser:

My website address is: "www.visvikisbarlou.gr/index.asp" The main page is loaded perfectly and shows Greek font text, but when i click-follow any of the menu links, the Greek font characters are shown in little boxes with hex code in all pages !

I would like to mention the following crucial facts: 1) This problem exists only with Mozilla. In Chrome and IE the Greek font characters are rendered perfectly in all pages. 2) If i reload any of the pages in Mozilla, then suddenly the page works and shows up the Greek font text ! It's really weird. 3) I've declared and <meta charset="windows-1253"> in the header of all pages and when i check the encoding in Mozilla browser it looks that Mozilla clearly understands that -Mozilla shows as encoding Greek (Windows) in all of my pages. But in the pages the Greek text is shown up as little boxes with hex code. 4) If i enter directly the address of a page e.g. http://www.visvikisbarlou.gr/news.asp then the page shows Greek characters correctly without any issue. I really can't figure out why this is happening. Any help on resolving this problem will be much appreciated !! Thanks everyone in advance. Kind regards, George

Some web sites, such as www.jeepforum.com and http://www.weldingtipsandtricks.com either fail to load at all or fail to load completely with a message in the lower left corner stating "waiting for encripted.google.com". Other browsers, such as Chrome load the sites without a problem and Firefox on another machine running the same version of the OS loads the sites without a problem.

I've tried deleting cookies, emptying the cache, and all the other things one normally does to get the browser to work, but to no avail.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Bill Lugg

B"H

My Firefox crashes on a page from my personal website: http://www.doviddebresser.info/Collection.php?letter=g

These pages show a large amount of small images. The strange thing is that only the letter "g" crashes, and "g" is by far not the page with the largest amount of images (that would be "s").

Another strange thing is that Firefox crashes right away when I try to open the page, not after beginning to open the page, as usually happens when there are too many images on the page, that the crash occurs after Firefox already shows a few hundred images.

I have the latest Firefox version: 46.0.1. Windows 7 with more or less the latest updates. The problem also occurs in safe mode. The problem does not occur using Internet Explorer. I have a few add-ons, like dictionaries, but nothing special. Java is also updated. I also have the Adblock plus extension, but it is de-activated on my userpage.

As of today, 3/24/18, I keep getting web attacks with FIrefox on all websites visited, attacks which are being blocked by my firewall, Symantec's "Norton Security":

Intrusion type: "JSCoinminer Download 8", as per Symantec's description Attacker URL: thrillingos.herokuapp.com/mozilla/best-ytb-down/content/analytics

Happens through: "C:\ Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", although I use a 64-bit version of Firefox on Windows 7 (SP1), 64-bit.

Since it has "Mozilla" in the URL, does Mozilla know anything about this?

Happens on ALL websites, including, but not limited to, www.nytimes.com , www.washingtonpost.com. , support/mozilla.org/

Another post suggested a Firefox add-on causing the problem, but all add-ons listed in Firefox are ones I have been using for a least a year, and originally came from the selection offered by Mozilla. Does Mozilla know if any of these have been compromised: AdBlocker Ultimate, Ghostery, HTTPS Everywhere, Video DownloadHelper, YouTube Best Video Downloader 2

I've updated a website. When I paste the url into Firefox it keeps changing it and displaying a different page.

The one I want is http://megalithmovers.org/blog-2015-10-24.htm Firefox keeps changing it to http://megalithmovers.org/blog-2015-01-24.htm Both pages are valid (they have the date in the url as YYYY-MM-DD) I know the url is valid, I've pasted it into other browsers. Somewhere FF must have cached the January page. Being too clever for it's good, it's decided I've mis-typed the url and displayed that page, not the October one. I've deleted all the history for this site, but that makes no difference.

Please don't tell me to reset FF to the default settings - I'll have re-install all the Addons then.

I have been having this problem for a while now, and it has persisted through firefox updates. I actually get 2 types of hangs when loading up a big page sometimes (4chan catalogue or something with a lot of javascript like https://albiononline.com/en/)

The first type of hang is that firefox just locks up, I can't change any tabs or do anything in firefox.

The second type of hang, my whole computer just freezes, I can't even move my mouse on the screen. This type of freeze typically lasts from 30 seconds to 2 minutes.

These freezes are not consistent, they happen randomly (I can't just keep opening 4chan catalogue and make it freeze over and over), the only thing they have in common that I have seen is that they normally happen on loading a large page.
