Firefox will stall and crash after attempting to add or download any kind of files. I have also note that when highlighted the words in the boxes under the top of the screen menus File, Edit, Tools and Help will look like frayed, this will not happen with the menus View, History and Bookmarks where the words are solid and clear. I recently reinstalled Firefox and the program has created a Old Firefox Data in my desktop. The last version I had +/- two years was also having a similar problem plus a total freeze and crash by going to Options, which does not happen anymore.

Firefox 22 Windows XP Media Center Edition SP3

Hello, everyone!

I've filed a bug report here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1004476 The problem is that after installing Firefox 29 with no profile at all and installing any addon that requires a browser restart (NoScript for e.g.) Firefox restarts OK, but after closing it and trying to open again I get a message: "Firefox is already running". I can see in the Task Manager that there is already Firefox running in the background. I've found several people complaining about this issue. Here: http://forums.informaction.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=19612 And here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2825639

Thank you in advance

2nd Update. (Comment by a moderator)
Engineers are working on issues that have been identified.
The known issues are problems with Firefox hanging on closedown resulting in Firefox not restarting unless the hung process is killed.

Workaround ensure Firefox is NOT set to clear History on Close down
Use NewButton New Fx Menu → Preferences → |Privacy| Firefox will: [Remember History v ]

Firefox has arbitrarily disabled IDMcc even though I have been using it multiple times a day for months with no problems. I wish to reinstall IDM and use it. If I can't I will stop using Firefox and go back to IE. I would prefer to stay with Firefox but I will not use a browser that won't let me use IDM which was working just fine.

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?

locked by a moderator on 2-7-2012 - has outlived its usefulness

In Firefox 3.6.16 (and presumably other earlier versions) one could force FF to offer to remember user ids and passwords for many sites by editing the file ...\Mozilla Firefox\components \nsLoginManager.js to ignore site- requested autocomplete disabling (_isAutocompleteDisabled returns false).

FireFox 4 does not use that file or any similar that I was able to find.

Can the result (FF ignores site attemps to turn off autocomplete) be achieved in some other way or by editing some other file?

Hi, Somehow, Babylon toolbar and search provider got installed. And now I want to get rid of it. So, 1) I uninstalled it from "add or remove programs" in the control panel 2) cleared out the "add-ons" from all the browsers and even 3) searched the registry for "Babylon" and deleted all the traces of it 4) searched C: drive for the keyword "Babylon" and deleted all the folders

But still to my surprise, the search results of about:home in Firefox 11.0 came out of "Babylon"

This has started happening since the last Firefox upgrade (to 14.0.1). It affects two machines - one running Windows 7, the other XP. The symptoms are identical.

Firefox is the default browser on both machines. I'm using only a default profile on each machine. I've checked that there are no stray "no-remote" switches in the command line or environment variables and I've tried deleting "parent.lock". The fact that it has happened to two separate installations, as a result of the upgrade, and the fact that all other functions of Firefox work as expected, makes me doubt that it's a profile corruption. I have also tried opening Firefox in Safe Mode but the behaviour is the same.

Here's what happened/happens:

Previously, if I had opened Firefox in the normal way from the start menu and then clicked on a link in an email in Thunderbird, the link would open in a new tab in the running copy of Firefox. I could do this with multiple links, each opening a new tab.

Now, if I do this I get the "Firefox is already running" error box.

If I close Firefox the click on a link in an email in Thunderbird, it will start Firefox as expected, and open the link. But if I then click on a second link, I get the error message.

If I click on URLs in other applications (for instance Pidgin instant messenger), the links open in new tabs in the running Firefox in the usual way, so the problem seems to be specific to links opened in Thunderbird.

As an experiment, I rolled my FF installation back to 13.0.1 on the XP machines. Everything then worked as before, and as expected, so this is clearly to do with the upgrade.

The Issue.... Coupons.com plugin disapeared after upgrading FF to v21 (from FF Help Menu>About) I then was prompted to install the plugin when i went to print a coupon from coupons.com... the installation shows it succeeds with no issues, however the plugin is still not showing in the plugin list, and of course coupons don't print (You are prompted by coupons.com to download the plugin...over and over again)

How it happened..... I almost never reboot the PC. Before today everything was working fine. I didn't reboot PC, but decided to upgrade FF to latest version (previous was 20.something)... because i was getting a really long (and context insensitive menu when right clicking anything).

The upgrade appeared to run flawlessly, but then the issue with coupons.com became apparent, and upon a quick look in about:plugins, i noticed the coupon.com (coupon printer) plugin is no longer there....

I closed all browsers, uninstalled the Coupons.com plugin (from Add/Remove programs), and verified that Internet Explorer can't print coupons anymore from coupons.com. Then i reinstalled the plugin (from coupons.com) and Internet Explorer was once again able to print coupons. This means the plugin is being installed on the PC, and while Internet Explorer works, Firefox doesn't (since this version 21)

Ever since I upgraded my Windows 7 desktop to Firefox 5 it has been a nightmare! It hangs, freezes, is unresponsive more often than working. I have to us my laptop, still on FF4, to post this or risk being totally grey before I could finish posting. I see by the comments that I am not alone in having this problem, but do not see any offered solution. Do I have to revert to FF4 to use my desktop or is a solution forthcoming?

Adobe Flash 10.1 won't load media when using Mozilla Firefox 3.6.6. There are no errors. Both IE and Opera operate well with Flash 10.1. I contacted Mozilla chat support, but to no avail (person disconnected session after I mentioned that Flash 10.1 works well with my other browsers). Also, I've noticed Mozilla and Adobe have had similar problems after each upgrade of either Firefox or Flash (the internet has a long track record of user complaints going back to 2007 and later).

The key point is Mozilla bears the effects of the problems because users transition to other browsers (e.g., I now have configured my Opera browser as my primary browser, IE is second, and Firefox is on hold until Mozilla resolves Flash 10.1 compatibility issues).


This happened

Every time Firefox opened

In past two weeks, when Firefox no longer recognized an older version of Adobe Flash and requested I upgrade to 10.1.

Before the update everything was working fine, but yesterday after the update I noticed that whenever I open a page and after that I hit back button, it doesn't reload the page like before. It's annoying, because I use forum and sometimes is confusing when I open a thread and after that it still says that "new thing", the only way to remove it is to reload the page from the refresh button.
