I've been troubleshooting for issues of Firefox hanging. It is primarily with one location, full of media content: http://www.theguardian.com/au

First, I closed some windows with many tabs, which didn't help. I followed instructions for increasing speed by changing settings for pipelining, which did not seem to help. I started to, but did not, change places settings. Also looked at suggestions re shockwave, but do not think I followed any.

Then I downloaded YesScript. This has solved the loading/hanging problem. But it has also made viewing comments in their normal presentation impossible. Even when I turn YS off, the comments do not load in a useful way.

Since it now appears that my primary problem is due to javascript, is there any other way I can rectify the problem? Thanks.

for the last 3 days Firefox crashes after 3 - 20 minutes - no real consistent time or status as far as what I am doing. so far I have done the following with no success: 1. refreshed Firefox; 2. restarted Firefox in safe mode; 3. restarted Firefox with all add-ins / plug-ins disabled; 4. uninstalled Firefox and reloaded it from Mozilla site; 5. after reloading Firefox I again tried the refresh and safe mode restarts and still had crashes.

I am running Firefox on a HP destop with Windows 10. Hibernation and sleep are disabled and the power setting does not have the hard drive shutting down. Crashes happened while on websites as well has just working with Firefox settings. But did have several websites in my homepages - Google mail & calendar, Facebook, Linked-in, and Google - but also had the problem with just the default homepage from the reset option open. The upgrade to Windows 10 was done several months ago and Firefox operated fine until 3 days ago (generally used daily for several hours). Microsoft Edge does not have this crashing problem - but I still prefer Firefox and want to fix it. Any suggestions about what to try next??? I would appreciate any suggestions.

Dear Firefox Support,

I have just bought a new Lenovo Laptop with Windows 10. Everything is working perfectly (knocks on wood) but one thing has been bothering me. When I am using Firefox, I sometimes get a weird effect on my toolbar, or the whole top part of the screen. Sometimes even on the webpage, like it's not loading properly. I made a picture and added it in this message. I have tried setting the .exe as running as administrator and other settings and am quite good with computers (can bench test and build my own computer) but can't seem to solve this. All graphics drivers are of course up te date.

I also get a weird thing when opening my bookmarks, also made a picture of that and added it with this message.

Also, to add, I added the new tasbar skin so it would maybe help with the problem, it did not, so the cause is not the skin.

Maybe you know a quick solution to this problem?

Thank you very much in advance for the help.

Edit: I can't seem to upload the pictures through the website so I uploaded the to a website:

This is getting ridiculous, I like FF but if they don't fix this I will go elsewhere. One of the best add-ons there is and just because I let FF do an update I can't have it anymore and this has happened in the past, it's bs and you need to fix it. With pretty much everything else OK how the hell did this happen?? You keep causing all of us these reoccurring problems and don't do anything to fix it then there is not much of a reason to stay with FF. You will be no better the IE.

Recently I have become unable to upload my audio files to sites like youtube and sendspace. Files also fail to upload with email attachments. Uploads suddenly stopped working a few weeks ago. I have a Dell Inspiron with Vista Home Basic. Could a recent update on Firefox be incompatible with Vista or something like that? Like I said up until about 10 days ago everything was working fine. Would appreciate any help.

I continually experience the dreaded rotating blue-green circle with “Firefox not responding” message. My only option is to close the program. When I reopen, FF may work for a site or two but clicking on a new tab invariably triggers “not responding.” If I open FF via Run As Administrator, the problem does not occur. I’ve tried every fix I can find, including: 1) uninstall and download a new copy of FF; 2) Refresh FF; 3) create a new profile (although when I then clicked Start FF, nothing happened); 4) close FF and rename places.sqlite (to places.sqlite.old) and cookies.sqlite (to *.old); 5) set sessionstore resume-from-crash to False; 6) unchecked Use Hardware Accelerator; 7) made sure there is no session-store.js file; 8) change status of Shockwave to Ask to Activate; 9) change HomePage to FF default. What have I missed?

This worked last year. I have VB8, VB 2015. VB 2015 works. I can compile programs and it works properly. All of a sudden, I can't compile with VB 8. I end up in Firefox. I even made Internet Explorer the default browser, just in case MS did something sneaky. But Firefox jumps up there with no website visible. I don't want to uninstall Firefox. Can somebody point in the correct direction?

So this has been bugging me for weeks.

I keep having Firefox crash on me every single day, usually in the morning everything runs smooth and there's no problem, at night if I have a full screen YouTube video with just the Reddit homepage in another tab, it crashes constantly, sometimes I can't get further than 5 minutes watching without it crashing.

It's worth noting I'm having constant 'display driver has crashed' errors as well when gaming but for the most part I THINK they're unrelated to why Firefox is crashing, I'm not 100% certain. Aside from that I haven't had any slowness or bugs, but I have had the odd graphical glitch in my browser where it comes up in black blocks but it doesn't happen often.

I've refreshed my browser and the whole delete-reinstall phase, no dice. Even tried disabling all my addons, nothing.

Happy to provide any further help if I can.

Ok a couple of days ago I had to do a refresh on firefox has I was getting very slow speeds with a lot of sites, which actually fixed the problem but now iv got a bigger problem that is now firefox will NEVER remember none of my passwords, and I don't even get the box asking would I like to save passwords.

Iv check all the settings ie Private browsing is set to off / Remember log in sites is checked, made sure that clear settings was all turned off when shutting off FireFox ect ect, and even when i open up the saved logins tab the box is blank, tried to import saved passwords from MS + Chrome ( not at the same time ) it tells me that its done but still nothing shows up and still doesn't remember any passwords when logging in to sites.

I don't have any other password mangers on my system so there is no conflicts at all, everything was working fine apart from slow surfing before I done this refresh

I backup the folder in %localappdata%\mozilla\firefox\profiles regularly. I just reinstalled windows on a new SSD, and installed firefox through Ninite. Doesn't seem to matter if I copy all the files into the new profile folder or delete that and copy the old profile folder over, neither way seems to want to take. I have 2 copies of this, 1 from earlier today(that seems like it might have somehow wiped itself out...it appears to have similar files to the fresh install, no sessionstore.js, search.json, etc.) and another from the 7th(of this month).

I don't know why it doesn't seem to want to take the profile, even though the backed up files stay in the folder after opening up firefox.

I'm using a Toshiba laptop, 64-bit, running Windows 10 Home, 8gb memory. Firefox version 43.0.4. This is really hard to explain but all these things started happening about the same time so that makes me think they are related. I can't tell if these problems are Firefox or Windows 10 related. Windows 10 has been the OS from Hell since I installed it. So if some of these things are Windows rather than Firefox, please tell me so I can contact them, yet again.

When I open a new window, it brings up the Firefox home page which is what I want. I start typing and I can get 3 or 4 words typed before they show up on the screen. I may be Super Woman in many ways :-) but not with my typing speed. The words used to appear immediately. Another thing, when I close tabs it take 3 to 5 seconds for them to close. It used to be immediate.

I'm pretty sure the issues above are Firefox, the ones below, I'm not so sure. If I happen to move my cursor over one of the icons on the taskbar, the little picture appears above the icon showing which screens were open which I like. However, now they don't disappear, even if I'm scrolling through a different application. I have to actually type something in a different application, or select the picture above the icon. They used to disappear when I moved the cursor off of the taskbar icon.

The other thing is that when I right click on the icon on the taskbar, for instance on Firefox, it would give me a menu to either open another Firefox window or close all the windows currently open. That menu no longer appears.

I've closed all the applications and re-booted but nothing has helped. There were a number of Windows Updates that occurred on 01/22 and 01/23 but I don't think they caused the problems because I've only noticed these problems the last few days.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
