While browsing, doing school work, or streaming video Firefox will stop responding. There will be a small white ribbon at the top of every window opened saying, "Mozilla Firefox (not responding)." Sometimes waiting for more than one or three minutes it will respond. But it usually does it again and again until it completely stops responding. A forced shutdown through the task manager is the only way to shut down Firefox. Then I restart it and restore my previous session. This is unacceptable as I use Firefox to take tests and quizzes which can only be logged into and completed once. Firefox is beginning to affect my schooling. I have gone through so many trouble shooting steps I'm done with it.

I am using McAfee, AVG, and Super Anti Spyware at the same time. If I use Internet Explorer, I have no problems but, I do not like I.E., Chrome, or Edge. Please advise.

This problem is new to my use of firefox which I've used for many years. I've never had this problem before. I have version 50.0.1 of firefox. Normally when I want to log out of firefox I left-click on my account photo which can be seen in the screenshot that I've provided and select the logout link. This link no longer exits as can been seen in the screenshot. I am uncertain whether the screenshot is being uploaded as there is a thumper in the Uploaded images box below this dialogue. My screenshot is a 300x165 px .jpg.

I do not like the idea of being continually logged in to my gmail account, or any of my online accounts, for security reasons so please lend me a hand with this issue.

One of the techs at Bleepingcomputer suggested I contact you for this problem. They went through my computer for malware and gave me a clean bill of health. Tech said he knows it has something to do with certificates, and that he wasn't really an expert on FF. I have several addons that contain important data I would hate to lose. So I'm wondering if there is an easy way of doing this without reinstalling FF and all of the addons again, backing up and restoring data.

I'm using W10 and FF 64-bit. It's a Lenovo laptop.

I was on a website, clicked onto a link & immediately got a huge flashing pop-up with print & audible warning that my computer was locked, & to call a certain number immediately. Couldn't close this page, & was unable to close Mozilla Firefox, & had to use force shut down.

I waited a couple minutes & then turned my computer back on, ran Malwarebytes scan & clean, then scanned again. Also ran Avast Premier, & no problems were detected.

Is there anything more that I need to do, or can I rest easy?

Disable "Recommended" topmost item in Location Bar list

Even with Provide Search Suggestions unchecked on about:preferences#search and History, Bookmarks, and Open Tabs unchecked on about:preferences#privacy, the location bar … (read more)

Even with Provide Search Suggestions unchecked on about:preferences#search and History, Bookmarks, and Open Tabs unchecked on about:preferences#privacy, the location bar still suggests one "Recommended" item at the top of the list, even above the option to use a search engine. It is displayed in a different style than any other item. Most confusingly, it's often a website I have never visited, so it can't possibly be getting pulled from my history and is therefore almost always useless to me. How do I disable this? Putting it above every other item means I just have to skip past it to find what I'm really looking for. It behaves essentially like an advertisement, and when it pops up after I've typed only one or two letters, it's virtually guaranteed to not be relevant to what I'm actually looking for.

The question title pretty much explains the problem.

EDIT: "Open Link in New Window" works fine, as does clicking a Link or Bookmark to switch a Tab to the linked page.

"Reload Tab" doesn't do anything. The page only loads if I stop it and reload.
