Hello and thank you for your time. I've looked all around for an answer to my question but found nothing related to my problem. I've also had assistance in the past with this problem and temporarily fixed the problem but not for long at all. When i try and go to a specific website that I've been to before and have seen the captcha box appear, there's nothing there or it says recaptcha status in black bold letters. Previously i got an recommendation to clear cache and cookies of the website, update java and turn the browser into safe mode and restart which temporarily worked until i closed the browser and then the problem persisted even after doing it all over again? Please help!?

Actually just prior to this update, i click on wisn http://www.wisn.com/weather and it will not give error message but doesn't play the weather update morning video. I have used it forever, but suddenly nothing, no message. I tried it in safe mode, I tried it turning off adblockerplus, I tried to figure out if anything was blocking or stopping, my java is enabled, and yet, nothing. please help me discern what steps to do. i also cleared cache/history. it doesn't work in safe mode etc... so its not one of my add ons. I hadn't put any new ones on in long while, anyhow, i really really like to watch morning short video of weather instead of turning on tv, but now I can't . I would love to have some problem solving steps if anyone can provide them. I tried to "automatically add" troubleshooting information at the bottom of this page to submit it, but it takes me to "not found" so is that my computer or your website issue?

Hi,

I'm not able to access https://pixabay.com/ as I get the message above (question bar) showing. Having checked out Q&A I tried deleting the cert8.db file then re-starting Mozilla, no joy. I am a bit reluctant to do a refresh as I'm unsure how it would affect my system? I am not that computer literate! I did do an SSL check & both their server & info bar url came back as A+.

Around the same time I now also can't access https://personofinterestdiscussion.com/ I did an SSL check & that came up with vulnerabiities. (I made a note of some if needed.) Their overall safety rating is F - grade capped to C . I haven't made any changes to my laptop lately (Windows 7) & haven't had problems accessing either site until a couple of days ago & I just don't know what to do to get back onto both. I have anti virus, anti spyware, anti malware etc installed with no problems, also Mozilla's website protection. I scan my laptop daily. This has came on so suddenly & I really want to get back onto both sites, so any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks!  :)

Updated to Firefox 49.0.2 I go to facebook, and try loading a java game called Bingo Drive. It takes 3 to 5 mins to load the game. Tried running in safe mode.. Same results.. Tried refreshing, it said it had a problem with one of my tabs or something like that..

I usually run it with Adblocker plus and Video downloader helper..

If I go to facebook and load this game in MS Explorer 11, the game loads in 15 seconds.

No idea what is causing this problem of slowness.. It says all my add ons or what ever are up to date.

Before you respond with your list of troubleshooting for this issue, I have tried them ALL! There is so much on your website and the internet about this issue, the fixes are well known and well tried. Everytime I try to watch a live youtube streaming, plugin crashes and Firefox freezes and I need to restart my pc! I would thing the brilliant folks at Firefox would hve come up with a REAL fix for this by now. Apparently not.

so, I have disabled Shockwave, but it seems none of the other plugins suggested for this will work. The error message is always, "your browser does not recognize any of the video formats available", then suggests HTML5 . I tried all of those, and they won't work. Last time I sent you a question about this, I think it got deleted (on purpose?) because I couldn't find it. Please don't do so again. Or I will have to take further action.

I have shortcuts for 6 websites "saved" in my taskbar as I visit these websites very often (please see 1st screen shot). Ever since the last Mozilla update, I get a message saying "File Download - Security Warning" (please see screen shot with warning message). If I click on "Open" in the warning box, it takes me to the website, however, it's quite annoying to have to click "Open" every time. I tried re-saving the shortcuts to my taskbar with no success. I also copied the shortcuts from my taskbar and pasted them on my desktop. When I click on the copy/pasted shortcut on my desktop, I am taken directly to the website with no security warning. I have not changed any security settings before/after the last Mozilla update. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to keep my website shortcuts in my taskbar without receiving the security warning message. Thanks!

Programming in PHP. kind of a form (actually it is not a form but it uses form elements - js is used to submit.) When submitting, data is stored in session variable, and the page is reloaded, same form is shown, with data modified (formattet different). This shows data the way the user typed them - not the way PHP formats them.

Useless.

And yes, I have verified, with a different display section, that PHP is actually doing what it's supposed to - but firefox does not display data in input lines, the way they are programmed - they do not display the programmed value, but the value the user typed last time.

Likewise the web tool, does not show the actual sourcecode, but a modified version of it. Selecting "View Source" does not give the same source as "Inspect element"....

I don't know why - possibly after a firefox update to 49.0.2? But Firefox on Windows 10 is no longer saving or using my saved passwords. When I try to display saved logins, there are none showing. However, I do have intact key3.db and logins.json files, and I can see in logins.json that there are lots of logins stored in there. So I'm sure the data are there, but just not being read.

Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't help. Refresh didn't help. Synch seems to connect, but doesn't help. Isn't there some command to force the browser to read the saved logins file?

Hi,

Often, like 1/10 times, it's very long (10-15 seconds) to hit a website (any website, like google.com).

I don't have this problem with other browsers (chrome, ie).

Same problem after completely reinstalled firefox (first deleting Mozilla folder in %appdata%).

Same when connect directly to modem.

Why only firefox does that ?

Hello, for the past 2 days my Firefox on my laptop has been acting weird when it has suddenly refreshed itself. When I go to the Add-ons page, the graphics looks very poor (see attached image) and so does Youtube. I went to see if any plugins were having issues and saw that the Java toolkit is at some vulnerable state and cannot be accessed (Firefox simply won't let me to that Java page as it is untrusted). I was trying to re-install the Session manager add on, but the entire graphics of that Add-ons' page looks disabled. My Firefox is up to date, according to the to Firefox itself. Please advise me what to do, as I would very much like to get my old (proper working) Firefox back, and which would be the best way to uninstall it, as clearly that didn't work either?

Thank you all in advance.

The majority of websites with embedded links to videos and embedded videos also mostly fail. As of now my Firefox will not play the majority of videos around the web.

Something has changed and I didn't hear about it - videos all of a sudden crashing and burning. Twitter videos will not play. Videos on Grabien.com all fail.

It stated that firefox is using 49% of battery each time the laptop is turned on. Could someone tell me how I fix this please. Never had any problems before the Windows10 update.

I've been using Firefox for years...since early 2005 and it has been a dream. But recently it has started to crash and the Plugin container regularly uses 50% of my memory and this has increased to over 95% causing the computer to freeze altogether. Even trying to open task manager to close Firefox has on one occasion taken 20 minutes. This seems to have only recently started to happen since I "upgraded" to Firefox ver 49.0.2 I have tried installing earlier versions, but keep getting annoying popups to upgrade, so I've reinstalled 49.0.2. I know earlier versions may have security issues, but anything has to be preferable to the Plugin container taking over my computer. It still happens now, even thought I have disabled all my plugins/add-ons listed below I have an Acer laptop with 4Gb memory and running W 8.1 Help in resolving this would be appreciated Eddie

After the last one or two updates, the text size in my bookmarks toolbar, my search bar, and the tabs have all from a size 10 or 12 down to a size 6 or 8. This makes them very hard to read. I have gone through all of the menus and can't find a way to change them back to normal - even a small increase would help. Right now the text is small enough to allow 13 bookmarks in the bar. I used to have seven. All bookmarks do work, but it's a matter of have to almost crawl into the screen to read them. I also tried the refresh with no help. I have the latest update, 49.0., using Win 10 with the newest updates.
