I updated to FF 17 about an hour ago and since then the back & refresh buttons no longer work. I do not have McAfee site advisor or tab mix plus on my browser.

How do I fix this? It's making my browsing VERY difficult and I have work to do.

About 4 days ago, Adobe Flash Player updated to 11.5 and started crashing multiple times a day. So when Firefox updated to 17 today, I immediately uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled the new versions in hope that the problems would be fixed. When that wasn't the case, I followed all the steps for Flash 11.3 and nothing has worked. This is only happening in Firefox. Flash works fine in Google Chrome and in Internet Explorer. My school's primary requirement is that I use Firefox with Flash to do my schoolwork. This is an issue if I have to restart Firefox multiple times during my session. 25% of all Flash crashes also crash Firefox. I need help soon.

This is more of a criticism than a bug report. It seems that whenever I run Firefox, there is an issue. I can't tell you how many computers I've been to where:

  • Firefox complains that it is out of date.

I get it, updating software is hard, but don't burden me with the issue. Updates should be quiet and seemless.

  • Firefox needs to inform me about my rights.

99.9999999999% of users don't know or care about this.

  • Firefox is unhappy that it's not my default browser.
  • Firefox babies the user when downloading extensions.

Adding a 3 second timer to your install button doesn't make the user choose safer decisions. It just makes me impatient. What's the justification for this delay? Do you have proof that you've curbed malicious behavior?

I just want to run Firefox and not be burdened with all of this. Don't bother me with updates, don't treat me like a baby, just get out of the way so I can get to work.

Thank you.

I've added a few Firefox add-ons since upgrading to Firefox 16.0.2 and would like to donate. However, the donate links which re-direct to paypal are not working for me (the donate links that redirect to the developers personal website do work, however). After trying to re-direct to paypal, it doesn't succeed and then turns the webpage a transparent grey, with the Firefox webpage visible underneath. Before upgrading to Firefox 16x, I was running Firefox 8x with Flash Player 10x (with Windows XP sp3), and the donate link worked fine. It should be noted that I am running Flash Player 10.3x because I also have the Real Player Download plug-in which is incompatible with Flash Player 11x. I've disabled other add-ons which might be causing a conflict (like Adblock plus and Real Player Download), and have enabled pop-up windows in Firefox options, but the donate link still doesn't work. I think my only option is to upgrade Flash Player 11x (which then I would have to downgrade after donating if I want the Real Player Download plug-in to work). Anyone else experiencing this problem?

Since I believe ffox 16 (on both OS X and Win7), I've found that whenever I correct a misspelled word in a Gmail compose window using rich text — by backspacing and retyping — ffox will highlight *the retyped part of the word* as being misspelled. This has been driving me nuts. I've since tracked down the problem to the rich text environment within ffox itself, I think. Examining the original source of the email message in Gmail, you can clearly see the 'corrected' text in the MIME HTML encoded message, and using view selection source prior to sending. Firefox is inserting tags at the point where I begin retyping! So my guess is the spell checker fails for the 'new' word, where it is not valid in its own right.

To illustrate, I wrote a simple new email with the text 'what is this nonsense', where 'this' and 'nonsense' were first misspelled (missing letter), then corrected by backspace and retyping.

I'm using an onload eventlistener to call a script which increases the value of a variable. I need to get the variable's value before I increase it. Safari and Chrome (Webkit) give the right result but Firefox always alerts "0"... To be clear: Firefox also alerts "done" which means it gets the job done but it does NOT alert the right value before I increase it!


This is my Script:

var obj = {

   build: function() {
       var progressCount = 0; 
       var otherFunction = function(number) {
               alert(number);
       } ;
       var finalFunction = function() {
               alert("done");
       } ;
       var progress = function() {
               alert(progressCount);  // very important line!
               progressCount++;
               otherFunction(progressCount);
               if (progressCount == ARRAY.length) {
               finalFunction();
               }
       };
       ARRAY=document.getElementsByClassName("picture");
       for (var i = 0; i < ARRAY.length; i++)
       ARRAY[i].addEventListener("load", progress);
   }

}

obj.build();


What else could I try? Thank you very much!

Firefox skips rendering text in Canvas

Please find below jsfiddle for reference

jsFiddle for Mozilla Firefox -- http://jsfiddle.net/ranu_mandan/EBmdf/

Javascript (FF)

var c=document.getElementById("myCanvas");
var ctx=c.getContext("2d");
ctx.font="30px Arial";

var counter = 0;
c.addEventListener('DOMMouseScroll',function(event){

    draw();

    return false;

}, false);

function draw(){   

   var j = ++counter;
   for(var i = 0; i < 10000; i++){
    ctx.clearRect(0, 0, c.width, c.height);
    ctx.fillText("Hello World " + j ,10,50);
   }

 }

jsFiddle for Google Chrome -- http://jsfiddle.net/ranu_mandan/mk5rZ/

Javascript (Chrome)

var c=document.getElementById("myCanvas");
var ctx=c.getContext("2d");
ctx.font="30px Arial";

var counter = 0;
c.addEventListener('mousewheel',function(event){

   draw();

   return false;

}, false);

function draw(){   

  var j = ++counter;
  for(var i = 0; i < 10000; i++){
   ctx.clearRect(0, 0, c.width, c.height);
   ctx.fillText("Hello World " + j ,10,50);
  }
}

HTML

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<span>Scroll on below canvas</span>
<br/>    
<canvas id="myCanvas" width="600" height="100" style="border:5px solid #d3d3d3;">
Your browser does not support the HTML5 canvas tag.</canvas>
</body>
</html>

Now try Scrolling fast using mouseWheel on canvas on above fiddles , you will find numbers are skipped in Firefox , whereas Google Chrome renders smoothly without skipping the numbers.

How to make rendering similar to Google Chrome in Firefox browser ?

Probably around once per day I get this issue with Firefox. I will always be working in FIrefox when it happens. The program will start flashing on and off (as if I was selecting and then deselecting it in the taskbar). It will be doing this more than once per second. The issue continues until I shut down firefox. If I click onto another program, the problem will stop occurring in firefox but WILL occcur with this new program instead.

I have tried unistalling and reinstalling firefox to no avail.

Since installing windows 8 firefox keeps freezing. I waited to install FF17 but even that freezes the very same way.

  • The only way I have found to solve it is to restart the computer and once in a while it fixes the issue till the next restart when the same happens again.
  • I have used FF for long and never saw this till I installed Windows 8 Pro few days ago.
  • I opened FF in safemode and the exact same happens so I guess this is not an add-on problem.
  • I reseted my FF and same problem is there.
  • After resetting, I opened FF in safemode, and still problem is there.
  • This happens when I open a webpage (most pages but not all), and after a long freeze FF says "Unresponsive script" and depending on the webpage gives a line, for example this when I tried to open www.BBCpersian.com:

Script: http://node1.bbcimg.co.uk/glow/glow/1.7.3/core/core.js:19

So. I was a pretty loyal chrome user since it's Beta. Noticed that it used a lot of processes for each tab I had open.

I didn't like that.

So I installed Firefox.

Noticed that Firefox is very slow. I mean VERY SLOW. Youtube videos? 5+ mins to stream a 3 min video. If I am lucky.

Gmail? Last attempted login took 5 refreshes, and still took over 3 and a half mins before it finally let me in.

Tried these same things on Chrome. Got into Gmail in under 5 seconds. Youtube videos? Don't even need to let it stream ahead. Played the same video flawlessly.

Tried everything in the troubleshooting to make this slow issue go away. Don't like Safari, hate IE like it will give me the plague. Opera is... meh. Okay I guess. Marginally better than Firefox at this point. I'm sorry to say, I am going back to chrome. None of your solutions fixed the issues, or even offered marginal performance increases to warrant holding out hope that there may be something just around the corner to make this a great browser again.

So. With that said, Firefox, we were once good friends, but like a business investment, it's time to cut my losses and move on to bigger and better things.

Ciao.

I've noticed that my Firefox using really extended amounts of RAM (600 MB or so). I have tried everything what is suggested on Knowledge base, disabled plugins & addons, started in safe mode, etc etc, but problem still ocurs, even if I have opened only two tabs. But when I have closed gmail tab, Firefox's RAM usage jumped down to 100 MB. When I have opened it again, RAM usage will become something around 600 MB again, so it seems to that gmail is causing my problems.

Why gmail consuming so much RAM in my computer? Is there any way to get rid of it?
