Hi! I am aware that there are numerous articles about this problem, but unfortunately none of them solves my problem.

Very frequently, at least once a day (usually from 3 to even 7 times a day) my Mozilla Firefox freezes and I am forced to restart it. It typically occurs when I try to open a page with some interactive content in it (youtube, some fancy flash pages, even gmail document preview). When I try to close it, Windows pops up a message saying that "Firefox stopped working" and terminates the application itself, and then another window pops up, saying "Plugin Container for Firefox stopped working". It's usually either that, but sometimes Mozilla also shuts itself without any warning and the same message appears.

As for "script does not respond", it does happen as well, although way more seldom. Usually it happens on the pages with lots of images. The whole browser then freezes for couple of seconds, then it pops up a window saying that the script does not respond and asks whether I want to force it to continue or not. It doesn't make any difference which option I choose because usually the browser crashes anyway.

I am using version 34 and I made sure all my plugins and addons are up to date. I also disabled hardware acceleration and tried to reinstall whole flash thing. I wonder whether it's the fault of one of my addons, but I admit I am not too eager to try and disable them all and then test it one by one because it would take up way too much time. Apart from that, none of the previous solutions seem to help, and the problem really gets on my nerves because numerous times I lost a huge block of text I was writing. Now I learned to copy everything I write couple of times :/

Maybe the crash reports will help. I'll link them from the newest to the oldest (for some weird reason they are 3 crash reports from today, yesterday and 3 days ago - weird, because the browser has shut itself today at least twice, not to mention previous days):

https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/ba7f5087-3d7d-4b2c-b9b1-04e6d2150105 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/72eaf792-5f06-445b-806c-cd7922150104 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/c3f81ff8-df10-45a6-8400-1c5912150103

I'll be glad for any help because, honestly, I can't stand it anymore. No reinstalling of Firefox or restoring settings to default have helped me yet.

The Firefox help on this subject titled "N900 Keyboard Shortcuts" indicate that the either Cntr + Left Arrow or Cntr + Backspace equates to hitting the "Back" button ... Neither work. Perhaps this advice is a remnant from an earlier version that no longer works ... This is an important shortcut for those of us with repetitive motion strain ... Or for using a touch pad ...

Thanks

PROBLEM: Accessing a site I've always used with ease, and siumilar others, login pages no longer show the Captcha "I'm not a robot." that uses the images "Click on the street signs", or "cars" or... etcetera. Yet, Chrome displays it fine, as does IE.

TESTS: - Tried to access with add-ons at normal. FF has, as always, has Adobe products blocked. FF refuses to let me use it anyway, refuses to let me upgrade it because the FF "Upgrade" link just opena a Moz wall of geekinese attempting to explain that FF is protecting me - but no update. I fought FF and was still able to update Adobe stuff.

- Tried with all addons disabled.

- The "About Mozilla Firefox" screen that cannot be copied and pasted here on barely visible, very light gray font "Firefox is up to date". 52.1.2 (32-bit) Apparently, it is now called Firefox ESR. What ever that means.

I've attached an image showing both versions. The working one by the Stalker - Chrome, and the one that quit by Firefox.

When I start the computer and open Mozilla all that comes up is a blank tab. Whatever I had from the previous session is gone. I've tried going into options and setting it under general to open them and that doesn't seem to work, and when I go to my menu bar at the top of the page and look under history there, it shows nothing. Before this last update, that's how I restored a lost session when necessary. I'm just at a loss to figure out what's going on now.

The big problem is that it is wrong since more than 2 months. And i have to use back IE only for fb.

Occurency : always Firefox version : up to date, now v15 Extension and plugins : default ones Conditions : brand new PC at work

For info, i have the same issue on my home PC since 3 months, since FF12 release, in this case with plugins protecting privacy. But even desactivated, it is not working. As a first contact, i posted related bug report in fb process, but i never had any reply since, neither one email to confirm bug report.


How to do, please?
