I visit a few known intranet locations that do not have proper certificates installed; therefore, I receive the "This Connection is Untrusted" notice.

In 3.x versions of Firefox, I could click the "Add Exception" button to add an exception and continue to the site.

In 4.x versions of Firefox, the "Add Exception" button simply doesn't work. There is no way to add an exception from the "This Connection is Untrusted" screen.

Thank you in advance. I upgraded to firefox 4, and since then I have had a problem. When opening a new tab I have chosen to be directed to google.com. In the past my cursor automatically went to the search bar on that page when I open a new tab. After upgrading the cursor just stays in the address bar, but I would like it to automatically move to the google search bar on the page. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks again.

I have a website which loads PDFs to the browser. In each PDF there are icons linked to .MOV video files residing on the same directory as the PDF. On two Win7 PCs I have, they all work, both in Windows Internet Explorer and in Firefox. However, on my XP PC (Firefox 4.0.1), they work only in Windows Internet Explorer. Firefox always complains with the message "Cannot play media <filename> cannot be opened. The file may not be present".

No doubt this has something to do with how I have this installation of Firefox configured. But what?

Thanks for your help.

I can no longer save tabs when I go to exit firefox. For some reason I can't restore previous session from the history menu and there is no restore session button on the default home page. I've also gone to about:config and made sure that 'browser.tabs.warnOnClose', 'browser.warnOnQuit', and 'browser.warnOnRestart' were set to true but nothing is working. I still only get the warning that I'm about to close tabs, but not the option to save them or not.

And I don't want to change the default settings to show previous tabs and windows on start up because I like firefox starting up on the default page, unless I needed to save tabs. Anyways, when I tried that option last it didn't seem to work.

I'm using firefox 4 on a macbook.

I use the mouse wheel for scrolling on my desktop and the "middle" button in conjunction with the pointer nub on my laptop (lenovo W500 thinkpad) to simulate a mouse wheel. At the point in time I upgraded firefox to V4, this function quit working. I've tried it in IE and it still works there, and it still works in OpenOffiice.org swriter, so it isn't something changed in the hardware or OS (XP). Any suggestions?

I have just installed the new FF (which actally looks a lot like Explorere). I used to be able to type a word into the address bar eg: Facebook, and I would either be redirected immediately to Facebook otherwise FF would perform a google search. Has this feature been eliminated or is there a setting that can do this.

BTW, I do not like the new FF. The previous version was much more user friendly and visually pleasing.

I am a developer. Not sure if it was a programming thing or not but now FF 4.0.1 constantly opens up multiple windows each time I open it. Sometime around 3-4 and other times about 15 to 20 windows. I have searched your KB and Google and have tried every recommended fix but nothing helps. I am not infected, no malware and everything else is fine. I will provide remote access to my system via TeamViewer (or your option) if someone can please identify the problem or provide new details on how to troubleshoot this. I will have to find a new browser soon if this is not resolved. Many folks are suffering due to this...not just me.

My home page has a banner on the top, which includes tabs for support, web mail, contact us ,etc. The banner box is blank, but because I know where the tabs in the banner are I can still use them. I had the same problem on my old XP laptop. I also have it from time to time on my Vista PC.

Other symptoms along with this problem are, Yahoo mail will not load, and on Facebook I can't enter comments ( I can enter the comment , but it will not post when I hit enter.) I used to be able to exit Mozilla and reboot and it would go away for awhile on the other laptop and PC, but now I can't stop it from happening every time on this one. I have FF4, just d/l it, I allowed pop ups, all to no avail.

I have Norton 360 on all puters, along with System Mechanic, but this happened when I used Kaspersky and a different registry cleaner on the XP laptop only.

Naturally I have pop-up blocker functional but there is a new and really, really annoying "coupon" pop-up that is always on Amazon but also on other sites. Close the coupon window and it pops up every time I navigate to look at any product. It really is bad and vexingly doesn't even offer anything that the Amazon template doesn't already offer ("free shipping" above a certain expenditure on some items etc.). It has a distinctive green border and appears on other sites as well. How did they get around your software? How can I make this stop?

This is quite frustrating. Ever since the release of FF6 the performance of Firefox with Flash related content literally sucks! The plugin container is ALWAYS crashing consistently.

It seems that in Mozilla race to compete with Google Chrome in their rapid releases has resulted in rapid blunders. If better testing was in place this crap would not be happening. Mozilla needs to slow their roll in all honesty of people that have been long time Firefox users are going to move to Google Chrome since it is not plagued with issues that are getting all kinds of loyal Firefox fans pissed off over something so simple as flash.

I have had more problems with crashing since Firefox 5 has come out. Obviously the proper testing has not been done by Mozilla. In the 3. series i maybe crashed once a year, now is daily! WAKE UP MOZILLA!

Before I go any further i have read numerous post in here with people have the same problem. I have also done some testing on my own from what Mozilla suggests, in which NONE of their solutions corrects this issue. My solution however, which is not a solution but more a work a round solves totally any plugin-container.exe crashing. It was simply to roll back to Firefox 4.01. I updated to the newest flash player via their site. I have been crash free for days now! THIS IS NOT AN ADOBE FLASH ISSUE. If it were then i would have crashed in 4.01 as well. For those concerned with the update nag, simply go to options->advanced-> and the tick boxes. that will prevent the nag

I thought that i could re-install Firefox 7 and simply replace the plugin-container.exe from 4.01, however that did not work. It resulted in a complete lock up of Firefox 7.01, and was honestly hoping that it would be that straight forward.

I read some peoples success with the 8b3. So, I tried that, and didn't solve my problem. I crashed within 24 hours again on flash related content. ( the crash ids are for the 8b3 i listed ).

Maybe someone needs to take the plugin container, and associated components in 4.01 and incorporate it in a new release, or revert back to that engine all together so that we can have a nice web experience without all the crashes.

You can get Firefox 4.01 here: ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/4.0.1/


edit: replaced random unofficial download site link.

Answer: I figured it out.

History lesson first. Ever since the 4.0.1 update, Firefox 4 has been crashing A LOT. It's gotten so bad that FF4.0.1 will eat memory with no end in sight and eventually Windows (Win 7 64-bit) forcefully close the program due to an out of memory error.

I have 8 GB of RAM installed. And, it would crash once it exceeds 1.5 GB of RAM used by Firefox 4. I've seen Firefox 4 go up to 1.85 GB of RAM in Task Manager. This is with 20 tabs open.

With the add-on Leak-Monitor, I've narrowed down the issue. Having only Leak-Monitor as the extension installed, all pop-ups point to how poorly Firefox 4 handles Javascript!

MSNBC Leak Monitor issue: Leak Monitor log from MSNBC.com

I've gotten more pop-ups from even support.mozilla.com because of the Javascript on this website.

Firefox 4.0.1 is leaking memory from every Javascript on every website I load. It's leaking memory as we speak with only this page loaded (one tab).

FIX IT! Firefox 4 is poorly handling Javascript, especially when multiple tabs are opened.

I had no problem with the last version (can't remember what it was) but after being bombarded with messages trying to persuade me to get FF4, I ddownloaded it. It freezes and I have to force-close it literaly every session. It plays YouTube videos so slowly and jumpy I just can't watch them. I am considering going back to IE, which is something I have never considered once since discovering that other browsers exist, aged about 9. Bad call, guys. Bad call.

I've had Firefox 4 since the release date, but today it's been acting up - it's not loading certain webpages properly, removing all the formatting and just putting all the text/links/etc in a list along the left hand side of the window. It's also not showing some pictures at all any more, although they're all hosted on Photobucket. This is literally ther first time there's been a problem with it since updating, and I've not changed any settings on it at all, so I have no clue why it's suddenly broken. Is anyone else getting this?
