after updating to firefox 29 and then 29.0.1, the cpu usage that firefox are using are insane,

it ranges between 50%-100% cpu usage.

and it happens even on normal non flash tab,

besides even if the site is using flash, i am using flash block and adblock plus,

so anykind of flash material wont play or uses cpu.

please fix this ASAP, because firefox has now gone from useable to resource hog,

oh and i don't like the new look, because firefox has become more similar to chrome on User interface,

and i don't use chrome, because i don't like the UI, and now firefox tried to be chrome twin ?

i think that's all, thanks in advance.

edit : fixed some typo

I've done -both- selecting & blocking the domain name of Google for prefs, etc from it's website AND using the Firefox security options page and typing in Google's domain name then selecting it to remove its cookies. But every time I check the "Show Cookies" tab, google is STILL there in the cookie list even after I've done all this stuff. What must I do, what secret domain name must I type to ensure Google doesn't track me?

I'm already using DuckDuckGo as my sole search engine so there is NO reason why google should be able to attach cookies to me as I am NOT USING GOOGLE. Please help.

Thank You! EarthGrrl

I have downloaded a second flash player and it is still the same. Firefox has been crashing daily for a few weeks. I noticed that your adblocker plus was updated 6/4. Since then I have almost no use of firefox, because the Adobe flash player 13.0.r0 and Shockwave crash notices are constantly popping up. Could that update have something to do with why the flash players are not working? Below are an example of the crash details. Thanks for the help. I prefer your browser, but this has made it non-functioning.

In trying to fix it, a window came up that asked would I like to change it back to a previous working image, which was Windows XP. Although this computer is Windows 7, I clicked the box yes, and said I wanted it to work like Windows XP. I see in your Operating System below, that it reads Windows Xp, but this computer is actually Windows 7. I can't find that menu to change unclick and change it back, so that it is working as Windows 7.

I often copy and paste items into website forums with no problem. However, since I upgraded to 29.0.1 I can no longer do that and it's so frustrating. I have tried doing the extra steps of clicking on your copy and paste items but that doesn't help. I even tried uploading the AllowClipboard Helper but that didn't work either. I never needed that add-on in the past.

This is ridiculous.

How do I revert back to version 28? It worked fine but you just had to go ahead and "fix" it and I hate the new version. I was able to download the Classic Theme Restorer which helped a lot but some things I could not make like the version 28.

It's working now but won't be for long. Soon I will continuously start getting the mozilla crash report. Refresh does not fix it, fresh reinstall does not fix it. i have made an image file of my C drive prior to the problem so I reinstall my C drive to fix it. This will last maybe one day before the problem comes back. System is windows xp, internet security is Kaspersky, latest version.

Once again, a FF update just drives me crazy and wastes my time.

So, I update to FF 29.1 (When will I ever learn?)

My preferred theme--no longer compatible. Forecast Fox--no longer compatible.

I see no "refresh" or reload button any more. Where did it go? How do I get it back? I also see no "STOP" button. How do I get that back?

I once went to the trouble of putting tabs on bottom (below the toolbars...not the bottom of the page) But the new "upgrade" wipes that out. Thanks! Nothing like constantly having to redo the same things. How do I do that in the new version?

I want my status bar back, too. I like putting certain things at the bottom--particularly Fox CLocks and Forecast Fox (oops!). Where did it go? Things that used to be there are now up near the search/url box, taking up space I do not want consumed there.

I saw a note on opening up extensions and selecting Classic Theme---but it's not there to select. So, I'm reading an instruction on selecting Classic Theme but there is no classic theme to modify. So, I have to download something to get back to where I was?

Perhaps we can simplify this. If it takes this much effort to make the new version look like the old version, maybe I should just have the old version. How do I revert back to the last version and get rid of this new design with the least amount of fuss and effort?

For some reason, ver 30 doesn't work for me. Nothing wil load - it's as if there is no internet access. The Internet Explorer works fine.

I see the advice about it being a problem with the firewall, but I don't know what's wrong or understand how to fix it. I changed my options from automatically install updates to "Check for updates, but let me choose..." and then I did a system restore, and went back to ver 29, but the option to automatically download also was restored, and ver 30 reloaded and will update next time I open Firefox. I tried this twice and am stuck at the same place.

Is there a way just to restore previous version? I'm hoping that sooner or later Norton and Firefox will get back in sync ...

Thanks!

Hi!

Firefox on my Windows 7 pc keeps on reverting to version 29 over and over and over again...

I update it and after a while when I restart it I end up with version 29...

I tried to remove everything by first uninstalling it and then deleting the content of a few appdata directories but nothing seems to work...

This really feels like groundhog day...

I guess some sort of update file for 0.29 stayed stuck somewhere and it tries to apply it over and over again but I can't seem to find where it is...

Any ideas?

Thank you!

Nick

Hi I have recently installed a new HDD with a refreshed windows OS (7). I have searched for how I can copy my bookmarks to my new profile, however the old one does not appear to list the bookmarks I had saved, so I wasnt confident in copying anything.

Am I missing something (should the old bookmarks name be there)?

Either way if someone could guide me, it would be much appreciated.

In Safari, I can Cmd-click on a link that is a link to a PDF document, and I get a popup asking me how to handle it.

I want to SAVE AS with my own version of the filename.

Seems like FF can only immediately download with the given filename. It does not even display the PDR within FF. Which is sometimes what I want to do too.

Hi,

I have some local files (HTM pages) that I access through the FireFox browser. These pages have a collection of links. Some of these are within [iFrame] /iFrame markups. The ones that link to URL images work fine. The problem I have is any iFrame I have that link to a text (URL) looks like it is not working. The box 'appears' blank (the same background color as the page).

However, when I click and highlight inside the iFrame, the text indeed is there. How do I get the text to appear in these iFrame boxes? (I tried it with [Embed], same problem.)

It is like I never existed on Firefox. My page is empty of all my addons, toolbars, bookmarks, my Reminder Fox, which held very, very important information and all my doctor appointments/reminders. It is a brand new empty page and a HORRIBLE purple color to boot. I am just sick about this. In lots of info I've read today, it states that Firefox stores information off sight for safety and so it is never lost. Well, everything I've accumulated and saved is absolutely lost. The trouble shooting info is of no use, nothing works. I will try the steps below, but I have little patience or faith left! I've been a Firefox user [and advocate]for many years, this is so disappointing.
