Youtube links doubling up?

I have just noticed an odd situation that cropped up yesterday. When I click a link on Youtube, it seems to open the link twice, meaning that when I would normally hit the back button to watch a different video on a channel, it opens the same video again, meaning I have to hit back another time to get back to where I was. I don't know if this is due to a glitch and might be fixed by doing a reset or if this is just because I'm on an older version of Firefox due to how old my computer is and the fact that it doesn't seem to be able to handle the newer versions properly anymore. (I'm still using 28, and no longer simply due to my dislike of the new interface, though that is still an issue. My machine is over 13 years old and looking back, I'm surprised that it runs Firefox 28 at all.)

I am including a screenshot of what I am seeing, which can be seen by looking at the links that right clicking on the back arrow shows. As you can see, the doubling up is happening both on Youtube's videos and some parts of Youtube itself. This does not seem to be occurring anywhere else that I visit. Not sure why though. Is this on my end or theirs? Again, this doesn't occur anywhere else I go on the net. Curiously, it did not start happening till after I had visited tvtropes.org, but I have everything but the website itself and one font that the site runs on blocked as far as scripts go. I also ran a check for malware on my machine just in case, and came up clean. Dunno if that will help, but I figured the more you guys know, the better you can try to answer the question. For all I know, this might be happening on other later versions of the browser as well.

i am on FF 28 for a long time now and i would like to switch to latest 64bit version BUT

i have 1775 tabs which ARE NOT being automatically loaded/opened because i have tab mix plus

and my current FF 28 takes MAX 60 seconds to fully open and load FF but any other version after 28 including FF 40 it takes UNBELIEVABLE 5 MINUTES to start with 1775 tabs

it already is a pain for me to make any version after 28 to resemble and function as 28 i need to do a LOT of setting up searching for add ons restarting etc.. so it takes me some 2 days to fully customize any version after 28 to my

liking and finally start working and ONLY problem i was unable to solve and that is preventing me to upgrade is EXTREMELY SLOW loading and start with 1775 tabs

i tried everything like:

fresh install

no add ons

different settings

etc.... and i still need to wait 5 minutes


AND THE MAJOR PROBLEM NO.2 IS

if FF IS RUNNING and i click on external link new tab opens next to active one AND THAT IS OK

and if i am example on tab 501 and i close ( ANY VERSION OF FF ) and start it again it will open where i left it AND THAT IS OK

BUT if i close FF and click on any external link like in Steam or Windows it will open a new tab on the END so than in need to double click and scroll 3 minutes OR MORE to get where i was


so here is what i do i install new version of FF and just copy sessionstore.bak sessionstore.js in c:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\4j0mi1a7.USER\


AND THE MAJOR PROBLEM NO.3 IS when it happens that power goes off or i get BSOD which i got 2 times in 5 years until 2 months ago and that was related to a game and memory timings and it is resolved

i lose sessionstore.bak sessionstore.js

so EVERY day SEVERAL times i must back up

sessionstore.bak sessionstore.js

because i once lost 2000+ tabs

I have two problems:

1. I have no idea where to actually contact a Mozilla Support member to get help other than post it in on this page. When I click "Contact us" it takes me to "Support" when I look through support there are no options to contact support. So, I click on "contact us" which takes me to a map and again no way to contact anyone so I click "support" and go-round and around.. you catch my drift....

2. I just need help on a specific account sync problem. I need to sync my Firefox browser with the old Firefox Sync key to get all of my old information and then I can update to the new system. I have my old key, but no account/password associated with the account number, because the old version of Firefox I used to use only used the firefox sync key. Also, I do not have access to the computer with the firefox browser settings that I had saved on it (so I can't just update the browser to the newest version and sync it with the new settings). I don't understand why Mozilla just didn't add in the profile management settings, a line to put your old sync key, in case (the many people who use/used this service) would need it.

I am very disappointed with you Mozilla. Now you won't even let me view flash videos, even on Youtube, unless I click on the link or pop up to activate the adobe plugin. This is a very serious issue with me since you claim that even the latest version, 18.0.0.203 that was released 7/8/15, is unstable! The inability to set flash to always activate is unacceptable! I DO NOT WANT to have to CONSTANTLY MANUALLY activate flash until they put out a new release! I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY SECURITY PROBLEMS REGARDING THE FLASH LEAKS BEFORE and I would appreciate you give your users to be able to set these so called unstable plugins to always activate. MOST OF US UNDERSTAND THE RISKS AND SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO KEEP OUR PLUGINS ACTIVATED IF WE WISH TO!

I have checked on the java website through their verification applet after updating to Java 18.0.0.203 (most current version). The applet (which was blocked) confirmed that my version of the JDT was the most current - 8.0.450.14 11.45.2.14. All of a sudden, you have decided to add it to the block list and now I am constantly asked if I want to activate it whenever I come across a page that has a non Youtube video (usually a news video). Java's website says that this version is secure after running the verification applet. I am aware that your blocking of this plugin may be due to the fact that I am using FF28. However, I REFUSE to upgrade my FF since I do not approve of the new interface. Please remove this from the block list or give us the choice of always activate back for blocked plugins. It's annoying being constantly interrupted by popups asking to activate or having to constantly click on activation links for java content.

Hey all. I have a bit of an odd question today. I am making the jump up to a Windows 7 Pro Laptop from a Windows XP Desktop. And one of the programs I used to use on XP, may not work properly (or even at all) on Windows 7 Pro. I am specifically referring to the old netscape composer program, which had been part of the old Netscape communicator set. I'm not sure if the program will work at all on 7, so my next step was to look and see what other options are available. I became aware, via Wikipedia, of two almost immediately: Mozilla Composer and SeaMonkey. of the two, only Seamonkey had a website link, so I tried that one. I am unable to find the composer component of Seamonkey (I am currently on the Library's computer and tried it out on 8.1) and so my next thought was to try to find Mozilla composer, however I've had no luck with that finding that one at all. is there a copy of this program still available from Mozilla, or am I kinda screwed here?

I am a senior software team lead. Firefox is getting worse gradually. And they are doing childish acts. You should never make changes to themes without the user consent. You should not make changes for political reasons or marketing reasons. If I am in charge of Mozilla, I would fire multiple managers. I believe this is not a developers issue. Firefox is losing backward and forward compatibility for many web pages. Also it is having more performance issues. Please do not expect users to have time to go to forums to fix issues. Prevent issues in the first place. Is Mozilla being paid by Google to make Firefox more terrible gradually, so all people will be forced to switch to Chrome?

Firefox started crashing every minute or so after a recent Windows update (coincidence). After trying the following procedures (see below), creating a new profile solves the problem until I select "Automatically add" on this page, so the problem must be related to running scripts. (it also means I can't automatically add my troubleshooting information)

These are the procedures I attempted after the problem started which did NOT fix the problem: Uninstalled most recent Windows updates. Disabled Networxs and Spybot. Ran Firefox in safe mode. Run full virus scan (Malwarebytes). Reinstalled Firefox. System restore to before most recent Windows updates. System restore to last week (problem only started yesterday). Re-reinstalled Firefox. (note: my drivers are all up to date) Created a new profile which this allows me to browse without crashing until (as far as I can tell) Firefox attempts to run certain scripts. In the old profile Firefox crashes within two minutes even if I do nothing except open the browser and leave it alone.

Given that the problem persisted even in safe mode the problem must not be add-on related. And since Firefox still crashes with a new profile is must not be a configuration conflict. But it also pesists after a system restore and being reinstalled, so it must be something Firefox uses outside of the profile files that isn't an add on and isn't overwritten.

I don't want to do a complete clean install because that would mean losing my history, passwords, customized add-ons (user dictionary, AdBlock scripts, NoScript allow/block list, etc.), bookmarks (I realise I can recover those), and custom about:config lines. It was working fine two days ago so it has to be something that auto-updates in the background because I have all updates (Firefox, Windows, etc.) set to manual exactly so I can avoid nasty surprises like this one.

Any help in resolving this issue so I don't have to start again from scratch and lose literally years of customization would be greatly appreciated.

The username field on sites where I have a saved username/password doesn't autofill. You have to type the first letter of the username and then will the rest fill in. Which defeats the whole purpose of autofill because if I could remember the first letter I could remember the whole username.

The arrow keys and any kind of clicking in the name field do nothing. Also, I have tried setting the signon.autofillForms pref to true and to false and neither solves the problem.

The exception is on that tiny handful of sites (such as Gmail) where I have more than one account, i.e. two or more username/password combinations. For those, you type the down-arrow and a drop-down list of usernames appears. This is exactly what SHOULD happen on all the other sites.

so i was browsing a comment forum and all of a sudden when i scrolled down it acted like a backspace to another page, if i scrolled up it went as foward to the next page.

The scrolling was not happening at all until firefox said it wanted to start in safe mode....

is this some sort of exploit? i was reading and it just froze and crashed, it changed my homepage to the regular start up one
