Every time I go to Yahoo.com and try to sign into my mail accounts, I get the Recaptcha. It may ask me to click on all cars in the pictures. When I do that I notice the "Continue" button is superimposed on the pictures of the cars and then when I try to click on the "Continue" button, I get a circle with a diagonal slash mark through it. Yahoo won't help me with this until I pay money. This problem started when their pay for phone tech program started. Please help!

I have been having trouble opening many web pages on Mozilla Firefox. Eventually I get the dreaded "The Connection was Reset." I have tried updating the browser, resetting Firefox, disabling extensions, opening in Safe Mode, but these do not work. The only thing that seems to work is if I close out the browser completely, reopen it again, go to this same web page again and it will open. Please help. It is very frustrating to have this continually happen. Many web pages open right away, but many have this same problem on my PC. I have updated to the latest version at the moment, 33.0. I have a Dell PC running Windows XP. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I'd rather not have to start using Internet Explorer. Thanks for your help. This even occurs when I go to update Firefox. No data is transmitted. So I quit Firefox, reopen it, and then the download works.

When loading certain websites, Firefox freezes for 10 to 30 seconds. When this occurs, the entire operating system is unresponsive. One website it almost always happens on is the Comcast TV schedule site I use: http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/tv-listings It happens with some regularity on facebook.com as well. Once the problem has occurred, it does not recur until the next session.

I have the usual "Icons replaced with boxes or letters" (or tomshardware for example, the Toms Hardware logo is replaced with "t H") but none of the solutions I've found have worked. I've tried Firefox Refresh, clearing cache/cookies (also with CCleaner), Checking gfx.downloadable_fonts.enable, making sure Firefox is set to download custom fonts.

This happened once before, and it just went away. Then it happened again, and a Refresh fixed it for a little bit. Now it's back, stubborn as ever. It's happening on every site that has special icons (e.g., YouTube's like/dislike buttons, though as I was writing this the like/dislike buttons came back). It's also affected profile pictures on Tom's Hardware, not showing them either.

Any help is appreciated. :) (I can't upload images, it just stalls. Let me know if I need to post them through Dropbox or similar)

This morning, Firefox had updates for version 3.6.6 and I did this and now gmail is not working. The page loads and I can see my mail, but I cannot open any of the messages or compose a message and I cannot even see the people on the chat feature (I think this feature didn't even load). Since I can use gmail fine on internet explorer and have checked with other people who say there is nothing wrong with gmail, I am assuming it is a problem with the updates to firefox. My yahoo account works in firefox, so I will give you that email to reply to me.

This is when you click the "whats on your mind" box. Started happening yesterday. Works OK on IE. Scanned page source and found composerTourStart on firefox but not IE. COMPLETELY deleted firefox, saving and restoring only bookmarks. ALL plugins and extensions are disabled. Same thing. I see this exact problem reported a lot, but on Chrome.

Also, the buttons for friend requests/messages/ all clear the number and do nothing. Both started happening at the same time.

Firefox 14.0.1, XP SP3

I put what I think is the area causing the message from the Page Source area.

When viewing a user's photos on instagram.com/user, I click on one photo and it opens in a new tab (as opposed to popping up in the same tab in middle of the screen). Then, when I 'X' out the new tab and return to the old one with the rest of the photos, I cannot click on anymore. I have to refresh the page each time I want to view a new photo. This does NOT occur when I view the instagram.com/user page using Internet Explorer. Shockwave Flash and all other plug-ins are up to date. I just noticed this issue with Firefox's newest upgrade.

Let me explain, when I open a webpage with a lot of images like for example an official thread about a game in a forum, the connection in Firefox is stuck, I mean It loads the web but not the images and saying "connecting with... " and It doesnt load any image.

But the weird thing is the connection is out forever, I mean if I go another website is still "connecting with..." and the only fix is reboot Firefox 6.

Also Let me explain what things I tried.

-IE and Google Chrome works fine. -Firefox 3.6.20 and Firefox 5.0.1 works fine. -APB+ disabled in Firefox 6, the problem is still there.

So I dont know what kind of problem this thing has, also browsing with 5.0.1 its not safe right? because its not longer supported.

Dear Everyone:

I use Firefox (V11.0) on a Mac OS X (V10.6.8). I have a persistent problem with Youtube. When I view a video, I may get the message: "An error occurred. Please try again later".

The frequency of this problem varies from day to day. Sometimes, it happens to almost every video, and sometimes, it rarely happens; sometimes, "reloading" it once or twice, the video begins to play, and sometimes, it never plays no matter how many times I reload it.

I also have Safari (V5.1.4) on my machine, and it does not have the above problem.

Could you let me know how to resolve the problem with Firefox?

Thank you! qquito

Since the new version of Firefox that was released a few days ago, I am seeing huge performance issues on most websites that are using the Flash plug-in (I have the latest version of Flash). Each website with flash-content that is bigger than a small video results in 60+ percent CPU usage and Firefox is highly unresponsive and getting almost unusable after a few seconds. It looks like the newly introduced plug-in container is making things even worse, not better. Is there a way to turn this feature off other than downgrading to an older version?

I've already downloaded the latest update 3.6.6 which updated the timeout for plug-ins and I've manually set this value to 60 seconds, but I don't think this is the actual problem. It looks like the new plug-in container and Firefox together are consuming way more CPU + memory to run Flash content than Firefox alone did before.

Issue

Firefox is having problems with certain web sites

Description

Yesterday, firefox updated itself automatically. The "what's new" screen suggested that I update Flash immediately, so I did. I had a little trouble. I eventually uninstalled Flash and re-installed with the latest version, but it is now up to date. Now flash videos will not play properly in full screen. The picture will freeze for a few seconds with the audio still playing, the screen will go blank, then the video will restart from where the audio was when the screen went blank. Sometimes Flash will crash completely and I will have to reload the page to restart the video, even not full screen. Other times I get an error message that my video driver stopped working. I have checked and my video driver is up to date.

Within the last couple days I'm getting the most annoying pop up ads...in the top right hand corner it says "SKIP THIS AD" and you have to click on it to get past it.

I've searched all around the net and I keep reading that this is specific to FireFox. I've tried running my spyware and protection software, all with no help.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit. I've installed the add on called "Ad Blocker Plus" and have added the different suggested filters, all with no help at all.

Can someone please tell me how to COMPLETELY disable these annoying ads. I've been a Firefox user for as long as I can remember...if I don't get this completely sorted out VERY soon I'm going to completely switch over to Safari.

Can anyone help me with this? Please email me if you have any permanent solutions. My contact email is jamcha00@gmail.com

Thanks in advance everyone!
