Hi people,

I've got a dev server with xampp on Windows 7. When trying to access localhost or 127.0.0.1 I get a "Socket Error connection refused by remote host", network.proxy.no_proxies_on has both of them declared, thing is I'm connected to the company's domain so I'm guessing I've gotta set localhost somewhere else, but where? IE works fine BTW.

Why does Firefox 17.0 on Android 4.0.4 crashes during page loading with no error message or warning even when installed to phone?

I have a Sony Xperia Ion running Android 4.0.4 with Firefox 17. Firefox frequently crashes when it is installed to the phone memory. This was with sync. I then uninstalled the app, and reinstalled it, then moved it to internal memory. The app is extraordinarily slow and the keyboard only works about 1/3rd of the time when it is installed to internal memory without sync. I have not yet tried turning the sync back on. Either situation makes the app unusable. I have tried clearing the data and cache, I've tried moving it, uninstalling it, I tried culling my other apps to make more memory available. I'm at a loss.

Neither the Dock keyboard or any of the on screen keyboards are functioning. They'll sit there as i hit keys and nothing will get entered on the screen. Sometimes flipping between the two keyboards helps, but only for a few key strokes. If I get the keyboard working, every time it will be in the middle of the page, the cursor will jump to the beginning of the document. When I put the cursor back in the right position, after a keystroke or two, the cursor jumps back to the top of the page again. I've tried the asus keyboard, the Android keyboard and the hard dock keyboard, all with the same results.

Hello all. I have sort of found information regarding this issue, but not entirely so I come to you.

Yesterday I was working on a profile for another site, and when I hit submit it told me to log-in. Once logged in, I lost all of my work. In hindsight, I would have copied it just in case, but I don't have that luxury unfortunately.

I have closed and opened my browser a couple times in order to attach add-ons to assist with this in the future, but I know there has to be a footprint of sorts with the page in that session.

I am on a Mac... I am not technical, but I am also not an idiot... just a fool that forgot to copy/paste on a site that said nothing about session timeouts.

Is there anything I can do to retrieve this page? When I had it filled out, and hit the submit, that log-in prompt happened, but I hope that will make this possible to retrieve.

I thank you already for your assistance and I hope you can help fix this issue.

Thank you!

This is not a duplicate of 792342 because several actions make it crash. Some times it crashes at start. Fire fox has been crashing every day. Actually every hour. After the crash, everything else starts crashing too. It started about 5 days ago. I've been logging the crashes using aLogRec and aLogCat. I'll try to include the files in this report. Sadly, I still couldn't isolate the issue for reproduction. Once it crashed at start. Once it crashed using facebook (aparently some javascript bad coding or bad interpretation when clicking the message buttom in facebook's site). What I surely know that always happends is that I only can use the device again after turning it off and on again (resetting makes it crash from start or loop).

When typing in a text field on a website, why does the cursor jump behind the already typed text?

This issue only happens when inputting text in a form on website (not in the address bar). The cursor randomly jumps a letter to the left, thus making input rather impossible.

Im using a rooted Samsung Galaxy S3 running GalaxyMod14.1 (4.1.1 JellyBean) and the stock keyboard. Using Firefox for Android 18.0

Every time I open ( or attempt to open) Firefox, I get a little window that says Mozilla crash report and says something along the lines of Mozilla crashing and that I will try to recover my tabs when it restarts. The problem is that no matter what I do it will never restart so I cannot even get the Mozilla window open to even disable all add ons/ start Mozilla in safe mode. What do I do to fix this because it happened extremely all of a sudden. Thank you for any help
