Why does Firefox work so poorly with Twitter compared to Opera?

When typing in the "What's Happening?" field on Twitter, my Netbook (Intel Atom n450) cpu goes straight up to max frequency and heavy utilization and stays pegged there until, apparently, the whole SoC (System on Chip) crashes and screen flashes white. Also there is heavy lag as I enter characters faster than they get displayed. I installed Opera web-browser on my Netbook and typing on Twitter is just like typing in Notepad with Opera. I'm guessing that something about the way that Firefox processes the javascript of Twitter in regard to character counting/scanning etc. is causing unnecessarily extreme cpu load.

Despite forums galore and answers galore, the continuing Flash Plugin is still crashing. This happens on Safari, Chrome and IE as well as Firefox. It's obviously an Adobe issue but no one is addressing that. Considering the major consternation over the web, can we (the world) have a resolution please!

Not sure when this started to happen - perhaps the last update but now the Baseball website and the Jay Leno's garage website's video will not play. They appear to go to sleep while loading. (The little circle goes round and round but never stops.) Other sites seem to work fine.

I have checked the option to warn me when a page attempts to redirect or reload, but some redirects are still happening without warning or approval. The redirects are solicitous in nature and hijack me away from a page that I was viewing without me clicking on anything. When it happens, reloading the original page sometimes results in another redirect but sometimes it doesn't. It seems pretty much random. I can only guess that the redirect is somehow imbedded in a banner or something - though I really no very little about how web pages work, so who knows. A few days ago I tried to reste the option by unchecing it and restarting firefox, and tehn rechecking and restarting firefox again. But today I got redirected. It's really a minor annoyance and it doesn't happen often, but I thought throw it out there. Thanx!

I'm trying to download a few files from one certain site. None complete because once the size of the file downloaded matches the file's actual size, both 'download speed' and 'est. time remaining' turn to 'unknown' while the amount downloaded doesn't stop; eg 4.0 MB of 3.0 MB completed. Is this the site's problem, and not an issue with Firefox? All downloads from other sites run normally.

Hi there,

When Download items, ex: picture, mp3, movies, any files (doesn’t matter the file size) when it reaches 100% complete downloads it will disappear automatically in the download list and on the actual file location, I’ve try to copy and paste when the file reach 98%99% and I'll quickly copy the file, but the original 100% file will just disappear, it just happened 2days ago, was fine before.

Also I have been trying to relocate the download file and location, but it still happened, disappearing, so could not download anything at the moment, even for a small little picture.


Please assist in the matter, will be much appreciate, thank you very much! 

Regards,

Firefox support user

Before today (when I updated FF) whenever I would close FF browser it would log me out of everything I was logged in to (ie. gmail, FB, Hotmail etc.) which is the way that I like it. However since updating my browser it keeps me logged in to everything, I have changed all of my settings so that everything is supposed to be cleared when FF closes but it doesn't change anything I am still logged in to all the sites. How do I change this back?
