Google, ever helpful, has replaced the mp3 attachment player in gmail with something that apparently only works in Chrome. In other browsers, it blames the browser for not being able to play the attachment, and immediately demands that you download the file (preferable to Drive) and get yourself an app to listen. I just want to listen to my damn voicemail without being forced to do it in Chrome nor to preserve it for all posterity. Has anyone got a workaround for this crap?

Upgraded from v 24 to 25 and on program restart noticed my bookmarks menu is really long now due to extra added blank space between each bookmark. Is there any way to fix it as scrolling up and down all the time is a pain in the neck. The spacing is a waste of space now.

Ive tried everything in firefox so far but its just no working for me

i disabled addons manually to see whats gobbling up so much ram but nothing, i upgraded, downgraded all the plugins and nothing either (the new flash plugin was giving me issues so now im on an older one btw, was still having issues with recent flash version so thats not it) i added addons that supposedly reduce ram usage but nothing

i enabled and disabled hardware acceleration but nothing either

i cleared the cache and everything that firefox can clear except the browsing history but nada

i used speedfox to try and possibly fix this annoyance but nothing at all

i updated, downgraded, and basically did everything possible with my computer's drivers but nothing either

is firefox just meant to be like this and to behave like an app that never releases its RAM afters its used? in task manager its showing me anywhere between 1.2GB or RAM being used or over 2GB's!! this isnt normal especially since i have only 4 light tabs open, all this and to add to it the context menu loading when i right click is slow as molasses

please, please, can someone just help me here? i added a log thingy that could possibly help, idk whats even going on here anymore from this, one day firefox was great and using no more than 1 gb in total with over 100 tabs open but now with just 4 after firefox has been open for a long time its devouring a quarter of my total RAM, for a browser thats a bit insane, especially since in the days i used to use Opera itd use no more than 800MB at worst

Last week, I downloaded Mumble, a voice chat program. I was playing World of Warcraft at the time, and needed to download Mumble on the fly, so I was insufficiently careful and downloaded an extension, Websteroids, at the same time. Websteroids highlights words in text documents which, when scrolled over, lead to advertisements. The claim of the Websteroids website is that it turns a webpage into a meteoroids game.

I have repeatedly disabled and removed it from my extensions list, uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, deleted files with the Websteroids name on it, uninstalled it and Mumble, and any other files/programs that I could find from that date.
I've run my antivirus program (AVG), spybot s&d, and lavasoft ad aware and followed the advice from their scans. Nevertheless, Websteriods keeps reinstalling itself without warning.
I have restarted Mozilla in safe mode and I've also deleted anything I could find from the publisher, Creative Island Media, LLC.
The next step that I can think of is a system restore. Before I do that, is there any other less drastic step that might work? 

Thank you

is there anyway to get the old find bar back? i tried looking in about:config and searching online but couldn't find anything. i was hoping you could customize it like the other toolbars and i could remove the flexible space or move the controls around.

does mozilla do usability tests? i doubt they do because there is no way the new find is easier to use or an upgrade over then the old one. i really don't want to install an add-on just to make the find bar usable again. this is almost as bad as when they removed the new tab option from the tabs context menu (something chrome has). thanks.

why the new find bar is horrible.

  • the find next/previous occurrence buttons are tiny and much harder to click. there is no reason for them to be so small because there is plenty of unused space.
  • the find next occurrence was moved farther away from the textbox. i just about always want to use the find next occurrence option first.
  • highlight all, match case and the X to close the find bar are all the way on the opposite side. with ff maximized on a widescreen monitor that is nowhere near the textbox and next/previous buttons.

just to remind you how much better the old find bar was. everything about the top bar is better and more user friendly.

So far I have tried starting in Firefox Safe-mode (I don't use any add-ons). I went back to all original Firefox settings. I fully uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I did a close to four hour scan for viruses. And of course, I have fully shut down everything and started back up again and cleared my online files and cookies. Nothing is working. This does not happen on Internet Explorer, just on Firefox.

Hi,

In previous versions of Firefox, I used to move all the navigation bar items to the menu bar.

But now that the tabs can be at the very top of the window, which saves some useless space (great work there guys), I have to hide the menu bar to use it (and use the Firefox button).

Since I cannot find all options that I used to find in the menus in the Firefox button (it has less details and I have an additional module - ScrapBook - adding a menu to the traditional menus), I tried to move the menus to the navigation bar so I can use both at the same time. It seems that I cannot move the menus anywhere else than in the menu bar... Why? I don't see any reason for the menus not to be moveable as other items.

It would give a possibility to use both old (and extensive) menus and the new button at the same time.

Thanks.

Upgraded to FireFox 25 about 11/5/13 and immediately could not get certain information from a well trusted website I took for granted with FireFox 24. I use that feature A LOT (A LOT!) EVERY DAY. But now I CAN'T. The website used to display certain information automatically but seems to no longer do that. Resetting FireFox to factory default or whatever you call it does not fix the problem. How do I go back to FireFox 24 to see if that fixes the problem? The forum thing does not have the answer as far as I can tell. Your website doesn't even have it.

I have an issue thats been plaguing me so far for a month in Firefox; after Firefox has been in use for quite awhile (open for many days with hundreds of pages throughout those days being opened and closed) it never releases the RAM it has used, ive seen it go from being initially around 400MB at start in the first 30 minutes of being opened then after an hour it goes to around 600MB-900MB, that number is somewhat normal for me i guess (in the days of using Firefox 4 id get that usage alot on my old netbook) and then it goes to the point of insanity at random and uses a whole 2GB and once its done that its almost unusably slow and at times must be killed with the system's Task Manager.

This isnt normal. Especially because this happens when i have nothing but Firefox's homepage opened and everything else closed. Its as if all the content on the pages ive visited gets hoarded by Firefox over time and it never gets released, its almost as if Firefox is like how Windows 98 was if you kept it running for days without shutting it down.

Ive done practically everything to try and remedy this as was suggested by the kind helpful people in the linked thread.

  • Ive disabled all addons i dont need
  • Ive gotten rid of addons i dont need
  • Ive started a completely new Firefox profile and in it use nothing but the addons i need for my day to day browsing (so nothing else beyond what i need is enabled or in Firefox in the first place)
  • Ive updated flash player and most of the other plugins firefox lists
  • Ive updated all of my computer's drivers and updates from Windows Update
  • Ive cleared the cache and cookies and persistent data repeatedly to try and empty Firefox's used RAM
  • Ive used about:memory's "reduce memory usage" option to clear out Firefox's RAM but it did nothing, if anything at times it made it go up a few megabytes or two
  • As suggested i disabled 3 "jetpack" addons that i needed because they supposedly were the cause of this
  • Ive enabled addons one by one to see which is the problematic one, in each time that i did that when i found the culprit and disabled the addon that i thought was the one at fault the problem would only return in a matter of time making all that effort go down the drain
  • Did a crapton of virus scans
  • Ive read most of Firefox's help articles on fixing it, ive done it all
  • A portable install of Firefox runs just perfect, and even a fresh new profile without a single addon is perfect, its when i need addons the problems arise.
  • I have run memtest, memtest86, and even the memtest that comes with Windows, all show nothing is wrong with my machine


Ever since i created a new profile my previous problem of Firefox's context menu being as slow as molasses is gone, but the rest lingers on still (albeit less i admit).

So far Im left with two seemingly related problems in forefox, in short: Firefox's RAM usage at random stays very high even if there is nothing but one tab open, heck there could only be the homepage of Firefox open and itd still do that even if i leave it like that for hours without touching it. Heres an example from earlier today https://app.box.com/s/sc7xpmsjnmf18q3rx12t

And heres after i used about:memory's reduce memory usage command https://app.box.com/s/whbay8b4l2z89grdphzd

And if Firefox is not doing that, then i get the other problem of the CPU usage having a spike every so often that freezes up Firefox for a while, when it does that Window's Task Manager lists Firefox as using around 10% CPU usage, which is alot considering ive never seen Firefox use more than 5% at worst before. It even at times simply stays like that while its idle using that CPU figure. I dont have a screenshot at the moment of Firefox at it since its not doing it but heres a screenshot of another process doing it http://vvcap.net/db/aSXmdVEsoZ-9tQj4TnH6.htp

At this point i dont know what to do anymore to be honest, i love Firefox and its addons, its what makes it unique, without them i just cant browse, i could just as well use IE (ew). Part of the reason i got a beefy computer was so that i could use Firefox instead of Opera without having to worry about its infamous memory usage (at the time i recall it being a memory hog it was in the days of Firefox 4 -14, after i used Firefox 21 things had dramatically improved since) Ive gone down to using nothing but what i ONLY need for daily browsing in the new profile and kept all other kinds of use of Firefox's addons strictly to usage inside a virtual machine (VMWare to be preice). But still the problem lingers on. Im sorry that this is long, but i just want to be detailed as possible so that this can be solved

Finally, my specs; as i have no idea if the attached troubleshooting contains it or not.

Intel Core i7 2630QM @ 2.00GHz (with Turbo Boost 2.9GHz) Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology 8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz Radeon HD 6770M (HP) (theres integrated graphics too i guess) 112GB ATA KINGSTON SH103S3 SCSI Disk Device (the SSD i have Firefox installed on)
