Our home computer frequently locks up when using Firefox. It is currently running the latest Firefox and is a Windows Vista 32 bit Home Edition desktop computer by Dell. This has been occurring for a while now (since July?) I have tried to fix it by doing the following:

- Reset Firefox using the reset tool.  There are no add-ons or extensions currently installed.
- Did a RAM test on the computer. (Passed)
- Updated drivers, including display drivers.
- Installed a graphics card.
- Cleaned out all the dust out of the case.

None of these has fixed the problem. The specific problem is while using Firefox the computer totally and permanently freezes. No keyboard or mouse input is recognized. No blue screen of death comes up. The only resolution is to press and hold the power button till it shuts down. I don't think it has ever occurred using any other program. It has occurred on many different websites, but Facebook is one that consistently seems to crash it within a couple minutes of being on it. I have not reverted yet to an older Firefox to try and fix it.

I am writing this from a different computer right now so I cannot "Share Data".

Hi! Earlier this morning, I removed some old bookmarks that were automatically on Mozilla when I installed it a few months ago. But maybe that is what caused the problem - I don't know. But I do know that it is not as easy to switch from page to page as it used to be now. At first, it was extremely hard to find an "x" to exit at top right corner. I finally fixed that somewhat by changing some of my options in Mozilla, etc. But I still don't like how the page is filled up right up to the top of the laptop desktop. I don't like how I have to feel around to switch to another page. I don't like how other tabs sometimes can't be seen, until I click up in upper right corner. Maybe what I should do is to uninstall Mozilla and then reinstall it. Then I won't have to bother how to figure out how to manually get it back to the condition it was at first. I think I'll do that later today.

Yesterday I checked Firefox for speed, and since then, whenever I go to an internet site, when I click the "home" button on the toolbar to go back to my default page, an additional tab of Outlook opens. If I go to 3 different websites and click home each time, I'll get 3 additional Outlook tabs. How do I fix this?

Should read "I am now asked to click on a link WHEN I am not directed to a site, why?

Previously when I clicked on a link in my emails I went directly to the site - now I repeatedly get a message asking me to click on a link if I am not sent directly to the site.

I have two hard drives set up to act as two seperate PCs, both user Firefox as the default browser. I wonder if I have made some mistake in setting up these two accounts.

I always use Firefox, but lately it's been acting funky; that is, about every 5-10 seconds it pauses (the cursor spins, so I cannot use it), and even when scrolling it does that. Driving me insane. So I thought I would try Internet Explorer, and it was fine. So, I went to my downloads, and I noticed two Firefox's. When I clicked on them, one was Firefox, the other Firefox 2. I have no idea why, but I must have been upgraded, or downloaded new version, who knows. Anyway, Firefox was the culprit, and Firefox2 is my old, regular friend. So, if you are having this problem, that might answer it for you.

Firefox told me 2 radio stations ad-dons where not safe and recommended I clear them, then FF suggested 4 or five search engines, all of them, I would not not recommend to my worst enemy, but anyway I HAD to pick one of them, so I picked the old BING with the knowing I could uninstall it later, they don't suggest ixquick or others which are safe to use. So I click for FFox to clean the radio stations off the browser, I was going to remove the radio stations anyway. And you know what the sods do? , they delete EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING, at 80 I had 70 or 80 in bookmarks, now I have NOTHING and for the life of me I don't know where to begin. To think I donated to FireFox. You Have a great day you ruined mine for the next 2 to 3 hrs. FireFox tells me, they have made some educated guesses about my current browser and operating system. Tell me, have you now got all my passwords? Have you read all my emails? Do you now have my credit card details? Your sick. You made some educated guesses, bloody liar, you sound like Obama.

When clicking on the Help/About Firefox link on Firefox, 41.0.1, the popup shows the correct version number but not whether the version is up-to-date. Clicking on the link: https://mozilla.org/firefox notes that I'm up-to-date. On the other hand, occasionally I am getting a pop up message that says something like my computer doesn't have permission to update firefox.

I also have Firefox on my Nexus 7 and I think it's set up to do some kink of syncing of URLs, etc. Might that be what's causing this strange behavior, at least strange compared to my previous experiences.

What's going on?

Hi, I have coordination trouble, and trouble typing. It isn't so bad as long as I can correct my typing. Unfortunately, some apps make it hard to select the correct spot and correct my typing. For example, Firefox. if I click on the right spot in the search box, Firefox chooses the whole search phrase, and if I click again, it chooses the whole word, but it alternates between these and never chooses the particular spot where I want to add a letter or delete the previous letter.

Is there any way to change this behavior?

Firefox 41 on the Mac.

Someone could give this tip to the dev team, at least give us a way to set newtab as `about:blank`, for instance with a boolean flag.
