I use Firefox all the time and really rely on it. I hate using IE. Lately, though (just in the past month or so) it is really annoying me. I will be using it just fine and then all of a sudden, clicking on links or putting in a URL will not work. It just hangs there, and the little round thing spins at the top of the tab (like the hourglass) and it just hangs forever. The only thing that works is if I close down Firefox and then restart it a little later (or reboot my pc). This is getting really annoying. It happens several times a day. Thanks! I am using Firefox 8.01 with Windows XP. I just reinstalled Windows a few months ago, so everything is clean and fresh and new :)

I don't want Firefox to "remember" the folders I've saved in from websites before. How do I return Firefox to its old image saving habits?

I recently got a new computer and upgraded to Firefox 8. Now, when I save an image from a website, Firefox will "remember" and, the next time I save an image, open a random folder that I saved an image in last time I was on that site, and choose to save it there. This wouldn't be a problem if, 1) it wasn't a random folder out of the several I save into, and 2), if I have to cancel out of an image for any reason, the next time I go to save (seconds later, without refreshing/leaving a page), it will have chosen another random folder for me to save in and I'm misplacing my files.

I'd like to return Firefox to the previous image saving habits, where I have to choose the folder each time, and it doesn't "remember" anything that I've done, as it is only causing headaches.

Since upgrading to Firefox 8.0.1, it is hanging when I try to open it. Deleting profiles etc. doesn't help. I suspect the problem has to do with caching or history, since when I first quit after upgrading I had to force-quit as it was hanging.

bold textMacOS 10.5.8 is my operating system.

There is no actual crash, thus no crash ID--it just hangs forever and eventually I force-quit.

Restarting the computer hasn't helped

Downgrading to previous versions didn't help.

Deleting profiles and preferences doesn't seem to make any difference.

Apparently clean re-installs hasn't helped.

If option-opening is really safe mode on a Mac, then that isn't helping, either. It's the same hanging.

No problems are being noted with any other software.

I'm totally stumped--what else can I take off for a cleaner re-install?

I've got a problem with the MySpace audio player. When I'm trying to listen to a song, there is a message popping up saying that the Flash cannot be played, it suggests me to refresh/restart browser or upgrade flash . But I'm already using this version of flash and I've got the latest FF. p.s.: IE had no problems.

Here's a strange problem. I always use Firefox, but of course, still have MSIE on my system. Today, 3 seconds after I log in to my hotmail account, the screen immediately switches itself to espn.go.com without any prompting from me (no clicks by me or mouse movement.) Thought it might be a hotmail problem (like it was hacked), but I don't experience this with MSIE, just Firefox. I ran a couple of deep cleaning virus/malware utilities, then rebooted and tried again. Same problem. Is it a Firefox hack? Anyone have any insight? I use Firefox 8.0.1 and haven't upgraded (don't really want to...actually want to go backwards so that certain add ons will work.)

Over the last few days a few extension stopped working. I was also having trouble from your servers when updating extensions. There were also lots of problems accessing websites. So I upgraded to 8.0.1 from 8.0. Extension problems continue. I can access websites now.

This is what happens with extensions that don't work. If I reinstall them they start working. But with a new browser session the next day after rebooting my laptop, these same extensions stop working again.

This doesn't seem like an individual extension problem, but a browser problem. I really need it resolved. Please advise. The extensions are listed below. What happens with feedly is a little different. It opens my feedly in a new tab with a new browser session. There's no preference to adjust this in feedly itself, or an option to select it to do that. And my browser option for homepage on browser start up is not feedly.

F.B. Purity, Missing e, Rapportive, feedly

Whenever I try to open a new window especially by clicking on a java script link or by clicking on a regular link that opens a new window the data will not load in and on the bottom it just says "transferring data." I have to hit the "reload current page" button at the top of the page if it is a new site, but if it is a java script popup window you cannot hit refresh at all.

What should I do?

What is causing this problem?

I get so tired to this.

I just installed FireFox 8.0.1 and it wiped out my ability to open MHT files. I HATE WASTING DO MUCH TIME WITH THIS.

I downloaded Word Viewer 2007 and installed that but it doesn't work either. All I get are some of the icons on the page.

HOW CAN I OPEN MHT FILES IN FIREFIX 8.0.1

Yesterday, this was not a problem. I had an earlier version of Firefox 8 installed. I think I have solved this problem before but don't remember how I didi it.

Right now I have a lot of work to do and I do not like screwing around with this problem.

I just downloaded the 8.1 version. It was a 30+mb file. Previously I ran 4.0. So I drag the new Firefox icon into the Apps folder. It does its merge thing with the old version. Problem is when I click to open FF now, it always throws up this window asking me about the disk image of what I just downloaded. I even tried restarting the computer--but the same message pops up. I checked on your website and it says that I need to "eject" the disk image (i.e. I'm guessing that means the 30+ mb file I just down loaded), so since I don't have an eject option that I can find (except for external harddrives and cd/dvd), I just drug it into the trash. I go to empty the trash and I get a message that that dmg file is "in use" even though FF is completely shut down. So again I'm guessing that means that even though I already merged that dmg file with the old 4.0 version file, if I dump the update file it seems that it's going to mess up the actual revised program file still remaining. I just want to be able to click on the icon in my dock like I've always done and have FF open. I don't want to keep being asked about disk image stuff. Somehow this feels like an easy resolution, but I just can't seem to put my finger on how to resolve it. Thanks for you help.

I have recently installed a security certificate on my site. I tried various ssl checkers and the certificate seems to be fine. Firefox, however, does not like it and displays a warning page that says:

www.academi.pl uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is not trusted.

(Error code: sec_error_untrusted_issuer)

This happens on Windows, Mac and Linux machines in my office. I have also received a number of reports from site users who experience the same problem. It seems that the problem did not occur in firefox 7.x, but I have yet to verify it properly.

Does anyone knows a solution to that? I tried deleting certificates manually in Preferences, but it did not help.

I dont have a toolbar, it does not hijack my homepage. But everytime I open a new tab (which was always blank) I get a stupid bing search bar. That is the only place it shows up, but it is sooo annoying because I always go straight to typing whatever url I a going to, and this bar changes my cursors postion to it. How do I get rid of it?

I have looked in plugins/extensions. It is not there. I have looked in program files, and in control panel -> programs. Nothing there either. I even went into about:config and reset everything that had a bing value. Still having the problem. What else is there to try?
