Been having problems with V36 hanging on loading sites, and it seems that there was a change made in 36 in relation to DNS issues, Bug 1093983 apparently refers to it, and I can't determine the best course to resolve, do I revert to 35, and is that even safe to do without all manner of problems, or install the 37 beta,
As things are right now, this issue is causing significant slow downs on loading sites, and regular failures to load the site, which is not exactly helpful, so I can't just ignore this, I need to go with one of other of the above, unless someone can suggest a better option

OK, I have NEVER before had this iisue with Firefox. ONLY after the use of Firefox 36 has it been happening. I have seen similar issues mentioned on some other web sites, but no real answers. What happens is after I have been surfing, a while, I shut down Firefox, and there are NO issues. When I restart Firefox, it will sometimes come up with the ENTIRE screen black. The monitor power LED indicates I have signal and all that but nothing on screen I have to try various things and then I get my screen back. Now, as I stated, I have seen mention of this on other sites, BUT, no solid usable answers to how to fix let alone why it happens. They seem to mention that with as they call it "some types of web sites" cause some sort of issue with FF. Oh and it always was with older versions of FF (usually from FF 28 to FF 33) which also claim that "this issue should be cleared up with the next release". Now, I do NOT have use hardware acceleration checked as I know it is an issue on my machine. And NO safe mode does not appear to anything, but may ahve to do a bit more research. BUT, what I really would like to know is if it is an addon, why is this issue SO random. I can surf a bunch of sites and quit FF, and restart FF and no issue, yet other times black screen again. This is why I am leaning toward it NOT being an addon, but instead something else. As to what? I have NO clue. That is why I am posting here to see if any useful ideas crop up.

OK, I DO NOT have to do ANY of the NORMAL tricks to solve this. So, PLEASE do not tell me to reset, or alter anything. IT IS FIREFOX 36 ITSELF at fault. Previous verion was running smoothly. VERY smoothly. After updating to 36, it went downhill quickly. FIRST I am CONSTANTLY getting SERVER NOT FOUND errors, and SECOND the browsing speed is SLOW. Now, these WILL NOT HELP NOR ARE THEY AT ISSUE: Reset Firefox My addons My AV My Firewall My Profile THESE ARE ALL THE EXACT SAME as in previous version. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE is it is now Firefox VERSION 36. Something in 36 is seriously broken. And yes it is the browser itself NOTHING ELSE.
Sorry about all the caps, but I am angry. Previous updates everything was good. But as soon as 36 installed, no longer good. I am now going to see about downgrading to my previous version just so I can surf again in a smooth and wonderful fashion. IF, and it is a BIG if Firefox's NEXT update fixes these issues, I will be happy to upgrade again then. But I am VERY nervous about ever upgrading again. Now, IF there may be a NEW setting you put into 36 that could be screwing up my surfing, PLEASE let me know so I can change it. I will wait for a bit before doing a downgrade.

Hey professional people: I need some help understanding something. Here's the problem. I may go to an online TV station like CBS TV Shows. So, there I am watching one of my favorite programs like Hawaii Five O. All of a sudden during the program my notebook computer shuts down. ???? This happens when I am choosing to watch an online TV program. It's so annoying. If I use my notebook computer for other basic stuff, the notebook computer is working fine. So, what's up with this problem? I am using an older operating system which is unsupported anymore: Windows XP Media Center Edition, SP3. I know its outdated. But why is this problem occurring? Thanks Tech People!
Tech people have suggested: check power-savings menu. Turn them all off and see if it solves the problem...
Then I did this: I went to my control panel. I went to power options. I set monitor and hard disk to Never shut off. Also the same for System standby and hibernate. It doesn't stop the problem.
It seems this problem only happens when I am trying to watch an online TV program from episode (see my original posting). What can I do to stop this from happening?
Then I realized something interesting: I don't know about this, but I just noticed something interesting. Check this out. I tried again to watch an episode of the Blacklist (good drama) and I noticed that the video and audio were not in sync with each other. It was kind of like the video wasn't in step with the audio, which seemed quicker. So, me--the bright one--pauses the video for about 30 seconds. Then the audio and video were in sync when I hit play. Ah ha! So, me--little old me--decides that maybe, just maybe, this is part of the reason why my computer shuts down during the watching of an episode. Maybe the video portion of the video stream is taking too long to download onto my computer, while the audio is racing ahead quicker. Hey now, I'm no scientist, but something tells me this can be part of the problem. I don't know! Could this be possible? Maybe if the video portion drags to far behind the audio portion it causes a glitch in the computer system causing it to shut down. See, when I periodically paused the video to allow the video stream to enter my computer and I pushed play after waiting 30 seconds, it seemed to solve the issue, the computer didn't shut down. Humm. I am wondering what the tech professionals think of the realization. LLAP
So the guy I spoke to wrote back saying: I'm happy it solved your problem, but i dont really see how an out-of-sync movie can be anything else then very annoying. Somewhere somebody who is too smart for his own good will know the answer to that one, but I am not that person.
Thumbs up for solving your own problem.
However, I still haven't solved the problem: I just got done with figuring out another unrelated problem. My FF wasn't loading into my computer. I would press the FF Icon and my computer would say something like it couldn't find Mozilla run or something like that. So, I started to figure out how to use my IE8 to download FF again to my computer. Then I started checking around to see if I had the latest verison, which is now at 36.0.1 and I believe it is the latest version of FF. So, I am happy about that. I continued looking around and found the Firefox Health Report. It said that it crashed on Wed 4 Mar 15. This probably caused my problem getting it to run again on my computer. But then, I thought to myself...Why not ask FF about my TV episode viewing problem. Which is why I am here writing this mini thesis to you. Hope you're laughing a bit. So, I continued to read through some of the prior posting tips before actually typing this out to you. That's when I realized I am not alone in experiencing Audio/Video playback problems. However, I don't know if one of the suggested links will solve my problem. So here I am writing you now.
My episode playback problem still exists. Even when I pause the playback and restart playback about 30 seconds later, when I see the video is lagging behind the audio. You can tell when this when watching one of the actors speaking in the video. It's like the audio is ahead of their lips moving to say the words just heard on the audio.
When the problem occurs, it just completely powers down my entire computer system. And then I've got to reboot the whole system again, which as you know takes time. Oh, how annoying this is. Please help if you can. Thanks.

I typically run with cookies disabled (do not allow web sites to store cookies). I then manually allow selected sites to do so.
I recently tried to add a site to the exception list only to discover that many of my settings have been changed and all of my exceptions have been deleted.
I did not do this intentionally. The only thing I can think of is I allowed FF to upgrade to 36.0. I think this was a few weeks ago.
How can I get the cookie exception list back? There were at least 100, maybe a lot more. I have no way of knowing which ones they all were.
How can I prevent this from happening again?

i was using firefox 35.0.1 and just applied the 36.0 update few hours ago. after that, i was unable to run firefox. when i double clicks on the firefox icon, it bumps out 2 error message. 1 of them is "GetLogicalProcessorInformation ... kernel32.dll" and the other is "unknown exceptional error (0xc06d007e) at 0x7c812a5b"

I just updated my copy of Firefox to version 36.0 on my XP SP3 computer. As soon as the program starts, my firewall alerts me the Firefox is making an outgoing UDP call to 126.96.36.199, port 1900. I deny it and it immediately pops up again. The second time I deny it, it stops for a while and then after about a minute or so, it repeats the process. I made a rule to block the calls. Does anybody know what's going on here? According to my research, 188.8.131.52, port 1900 is the IPv4 multicast address implemented through Universal Plug and Play. Why would Firefox now need to be calling that local address? Is there something I can disable in Options to stop Firefox from making those calls? I try to minimize the number of rules my firewall has to use whenever possible.
