I installed the add-on "PCMan Firefox Extension" in order to use a BBS in the Firefox browser. Now, even after removing the add-on, every single time I open a new tab a small window pops up that says "This link needs to be opened with an application?" even when I am not clicking on any links. Is there a way to prevent this window from appearing?

It seems that ever since Firefox updated (I have version 48.0.1) the suggestions that pop up when I click in the address bar are much too wide. Before the update the suggestions (like previous websites that I had visited) took up only a small space, less than half the width of my screen. Now since the update the suggestions that pop up take up the entire width of the screen. It's really annoying. Does this in fact have to do with the most recent Firefox update and is there any way I can change the size of the suggestions popup smaller, like it was before?

So I have just re-installed my windows 10, installed a fresh Mozilla Firefox version and logged-in into my mozilla account, which I used before when Syncing my information. Since I didn't get back my synced information automatically i pressed Sync button (in Menu), but still nothing happened. How do I get back my Firefox information which I Synced before re-installing windows?

Firefox 48.0.1 crashed a while ago. I quit the application from the crash notification window & restarted my iMac. When I restarted Firefox, the session restore page appeared indicating that I should examine my windows & tabs, but that page contained no windows/tabs. I have no idea how to get back the tabs I had before the crash. The same thing happened recently, but I honestly don't remember whether it was the last time FF crashed, since it crashes not infrequently for no apparent reason.

I have poured over every single article on similar issues with no help. I have tried every single suggestion. After installing windows 10 firefox continuously crashes, I can't open more then 4 tabs at a time. The task manager says Plugin for firefox running at 1.5gb plus firefox itself running at about 1gb. My screen goes black and blotchy and then just dies. Typing this article in itself was painful it is so slow. I'm at my wits end. I feel that obviously everything worked fine on Windows 7 so this definitely has something to do with windows 10. Unfortunately Microsoft is not helpful at all. Surely I can't be the only person with this problem.

FF 48.0.1 is running very slowly on my Windows XP service pack 3 PC.

I did a FF Refresh but no change.

I then uninstalled FF and installed version 43.0.1 (with no added add-ons) and it ran OK. But when I upgraded to the current version (48.0.1) (still with no added add-ons) it runs very slowly. And it fully uses one core of my 2 core CPU when I attempt to do anything using FF, even when accessing the drop-down menus (there were even pauses when I was typing in the details of this question). Since nothing was done between the install of version 43.0.1 and the upgrade to version 48.0.1, the issue points to the new version of FF.

Is this something that can be fixed, or should I go to an earlier version of FF. If I need to go to an earlier version of FF, what is the latest version I should try (beyond 43.0.1) and where do I obtain it?

"Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page" doesn't keep all websites from reloading.

The results can be annoying, such as fivethirtyeight.com reloading thirty seconds after loading, while I'm trying in another address, forcing me to type again. The results can be migraine-inducing, and potentially seizure-inducing, such as helpx.adobe.com flashing and reloading every few seconds. I seem to recall trouble exiting that page too.

Please do not ask me to refresh Firefox or try Firefox in safe mode. I have a strobe sensitivity, and migraines, and need a number of animation-blocking tools to use Firefox.

I followed the directions for transferring profiles exactly. The transfer worked, I found the file. Next I ran the program to open the file "Firefox -P" which brought up a window showing the data I transferred as Default User. When I clicked OK, Firefox opened -- but none of the data Bookmarks, tabs etc. appearared. I am at a loss what to try next.

I am using TabMixPlus and Session Manager add-ons in my firefox. But since almost 6 months or more session restore is not working as expected. Everytime I restore a session all tabs are created from that session but they are not loaded. Previously everytime I restore a session automatically firefox loads tabs in group of 3 tabs. So, after restoring a session after a minute or two I had all tabs loaded in that session. But now a days I need to go to each and every tab - when I open the tab it loads that. So, manually I have to visit each tab after restoring a session. It takes a long time as I generally use 30-40 tabs...

Thanks for your help.

I type in my email address and password (correctly!) in Facebook, click log in, and the two field clear. No error message appears. I try a couple of times without success and finally change my password in FB. That works until I log out of FB. Then, the problem appears and I have to repeat changing password... etc.

This problem does NOT occur if I use Safari
