I am currently using Firefox 43.0.4 on my WinXP HP Pavilion desktop computer. Whenever I have tried updating, Firefox crashes. I tried before with Firefox 47 and 49 - always the same thing. Firefox updates and when the computer reboots it crashes and I end up having to remove the update and go back to the earlier version which is now not supported. My WinXP has the SP3 and I am unsure as 32 or 64 bit. How can I do a good clean install of the latest Firefox?

I recently was having problems with my computer (Dell Latitude D830) with its Windows 7 Professional operating system. I was using the Firefox web browser. Sometimes while playing videos on Youtube (or anywhere) the video would bail out, and I'd have to go back to the web site again and start over. Mostly the video would leave if I paused it for too long. So, I tried to uninstall Firefox so I could install Waterfox. I thought that web browser would work better. I think I'm right because I'm using it now. Anyway, I tried uninstalling Firefox but it never quite left. It's gone from the program list, but when I try to uninstall when I go into the Control Panel and click on uninstall (and then click on "Yes") it doesn't disappear like it's supposed to. It just stays there. So, now I have Waterfox and it operates. The problem with that is Waterfox is trying to update me (or upgrade, I forget) on its web browser but can't because it knows that Firefox is still there, somehow. It wants me to get rid of Firefox. How do I totally erase Firefox from my system?

I found a solution to my problem, but I just wanted to make the problem/solution available to all FireFox users ... Doing "Microsoft Print to PDF" I was getting "a error occurred while printing". This error also occurred trying to do "Microsoft XPS Document Writer". Using "Process Monitor" (from Sysinternals) found "access denied" entry. This occurred even though I had total security access and ownership too. I had been using a non-default "tmp" user environment variable. I set "tmp" back to the default and the problem went away. The problem was not occurring in the other browsers IE, Edge, or Chrome. Also, reinstalling FireFox did not solve the problem since the "tmp" variable was not affected by the reinstall.

I too am experiencing the problem of having to press the back button multiple times to return to the main page of a web site. http://www.seattletimes.com/ Select any article, right click in the back arrow and you will see 5 or more url's which are all the current page with the main page at the bottom. System is Windows 10 64 bit, Firefox 64 bit. I just upgraded to the 64 bit version of FF but this occurred with the 32 bit version. The same web site when viewed with IE 11 or Edge does not do this. Therefore it is a Firefox problem, not the web site.

I've installed Adblock Plus 2.7.1. I can't check the filter list. When I go to the preference, I can't click on the "Filter & preferences..." button, also "Count filter & hits", "Sync Adblock Plus settings", "Show useful notifications", "Show in toolbar".

I tried to subscribe a list in "https://adblockplus.org/en/subscriptions" but an error screen show: """ The address wasn't understood

Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (abp) isn't associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

   You might need to install other software to open this address.

Why is the Roboform toolbar missing in Firefox but not in IE11 in a Windows 10 Standard user account but not in the Administrator account?

Upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 went fine, but I notice that the Roboform toolbar is missing in Firefox in my wife's Standard User local account (but it IS there in IE11). The toolbar shows up as normal in both browsers in my Admistrative local user account. In Firefox, clicking on View/Toolbars does not show Roboform as an option. I've tried uninstalling Roboform and re-installing the most recent version but the same thing occurs.

Can anyone provide a solution to get the toolbar to show up?

On most sites, menus now flash open when users scroll onto the top of the menu.

This may be useful for some users, who have trouble with clicks, but it is a problem for some other users, who have trouble with flashing lights. For example, they hurt me and trigger my migraines.

On many sites, menus now flash closed when users scroll off of the top of the menu.

This makes it impossible to use the menus, because if we try to scroll to from the top to the entries, the menu closes. I have specific greasemonkey scripts for some sites, but that's not a good solution, and I don't know how to program my own scripts.

This has been a known bug for at least 4 years.

The former bug is common across browsers, but the latter does not appear in Safari and may be specific to Firefox.

There ought to be a way to only open menus after clicking on them, and avoid closing menus while using them.

I have been unable to watch videos on certain websites - I keep getting the message that I need to update my Flash. I have updated, to Flash 20, but the websites don't appear to recognise it and still think that I only have Flash 18. I have checked in the Add-ons Manager; Flash 18 is disabled, and Flash 20 says "ask to to activate". I have tried to remove Flash 18, but all I have managed to do is remove Flash 20. How do I get rid of it altogether?

Hi, my problem is that in Firefox, none of the videos n the BBC website and most of the audio (aparently the ones that use Shockwave Flash) do cause Firefox to hang . It says at the top that Frefox is unrepsonsive and that I can either close or wait. If I wait long enough it did on one occasion just close the affected tab, on other occasisons I usually have to close Firefo entirely, sometimes needing the help of the task manager to do so.

The BBC videos and  audio do work fine if I use Internet Explorer.  I'm adding    screenshots of the Crash-ID.

The crash still happens if I update Firefox or start in safe mode.

Would be grateful for suggestions!

Many thnaks
