I just updated to FireFox 26.0 a few hours ago, and now when I visit a site like Wonkette.com, the browser hangs are worse than ever before...and they were bad before. My browser is hanging (becomes completely unresponsive) minutes at a time before it either loads the page, or tries to load it and I get a script error (which takes more minutes to pop up while the browser's unresponsive) before it loads.

God help you if you go anywhere with an IntenseDatabase commenting system or any kind of embedded video player. I have on no add-ons or plug-ins, so it is not that (and they are all up-to-date, anyway, but that's irrelevant).

No, this is not something solved by going into Safe Mode - the seeming catch-all cure that never works, either - so don't even offer that up as a solution. Thanks.

Portable Fox installs persistant nagware boot popup from two choice ad options when no choice selected.By Fox design?

When I downloaded installed portable Fox (from Mozilla Site) to thumb drive I was presented with two options from an advertiser in which I could choose by checking one of two box's (which I didn't check) continued with process which stated I will need to enter my email when the install completes. That never came up and I suspect it was because I elected not to choose an advertiser.

After rebooting the installing PC (after I installed Portable Fox on thumb) from which I downloaded portable fox to a persistent boot nagware pops up from all - any signed in user account on the PC.

Was this foxes intent to allow the advertiser to this with out warning of nagware install and choice to opt out and discontinue the install process?

I have windows & pro I had to go to the process running and then click process properties / security and disallow it access to all users to stop the pop up. But the point is Mozilla should have been 100% clear about the nagware install even if under certain conditions it installs (being I suspect if you don't choose one of the advertisers box's and continue with install.

Skype Click to Call 6.13.0.13771 is not compatible with FF 26.0. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Skype, as well as clearing the cache and cookies. Is this a Firefox issue? A Skype issue (which of course Skype says it's not their issue)? An issue with my hardware?

So I have Firefox on a main O/S Windows 8.1 & a second boot Ubuntu 12.04. I've set up my sync account on Windows 8.1 & when I set it up on Ubuntu with the recovery key it will import the bookmarks, add ons, preferences ect. The problem is if I add bookmarks in Windows Firefox & then boot Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Ubuntu, if I add a new bookmark on Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Windows. They both keep their own instance of my sync but won't share it & share the changes.

Am I supposed to select a setting at the Sync Options to tell it to keep both the browsers the same & to also let each other add bookmarks? If you know what I mean ;)

I did the update to Firefox today. I am able to log into Comcast, but am having trouble with staying logged in. I go to the home page, it tells me I am not logged in, so I go to the log in page, log in, and it takes me back to the home page showing that I am logged in. When I try to go access my email, instead of taking me to that page, it just takes me back to the log in page. It also does this when I navigate anywhere else on the site. Help!

In regards to browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite

It feels like this should NOT be a true / false option, but rather offer 3 options:

1) Do NOT remember 2) Remember Site/Domain (top level) 3) Remember specific server/subdomain

Firefox currently offers only 1 (false) or 3 (true), which is absolutely INSANELY annoying on sites that are powered by dozens or 100's of unique servers who's URLs are not masked.

When browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite=true, downloading a group of 10 files or images may require changing re-navigating your directory structure up to 10 times, which is just as bad / annoying as if it was set to false.

Alternately, just remembering the top level domain instead of the subdomain or server would be MUCH better in every case I've so far encountered.

Please consider changing this... !!!!

Ctrl+J now brings up the Library.

In about:config, browser.download.useToolkitUI is set to True, which was the fix for this problem in previous versions.

The Library isn't a desirable interface because:-

- takes longer to appear - no "clear downloads" button - no "pause", "stop", "refresh" button - takes up more screen space - resizing it to take up less screen space also affects how the History is viewed (History needs a big window with lots of detail, Downloads otoh needs a little window exactly like the one Mozilla has tried to get rid of).

History and Downloads and Bookmarks and Tags don't belong in a single Library any more than my bags of groceries, the street I live on, or my shopping list belong in the same physical Library.

- no download progress shown (or if it is shown it is less conspicuous) - the change was not optional, in this day and age ANY change to a UI however slight should be opted for by the user.

If I roll back to FF25, the initial install will have the "automatic update" box checked, causing it to automatically download and install FF26 before I can get to the checkbox. So it would be good to have a way of bringing back the old download window.

I used to use new tab king, and when I opened a new tab, it would always open the new tab to the very right of my session, out of the way and not somewhere randomly in the middle. However, I wanted my restored windows to open where I had closed them in my session. I have since changed to use new tab plus instead, and it worked that same way before, but since I updated to firefox 26, it seems to have reset that option (as well as others), it opens in the middle of the session now instead of the end.

Hello, I will start off by admitting that this is not an issue with Firefox, or any browser for that matter. However, I am not quite sure where I can ask this at this time of night that wouldn't cost me money that I currently do not have. As of about an hour ago, this started popping up (The IDT Audio window): http://i.imgur.com/V0WpYKd.jpg?1 I have had this pop up before, and it was able to be solved, but I cannot recall how it was solved. Simply closing it doesn't work, and restarting the computer doesn't either.

So, is there anyone that knows how I can stop this from coming up again?

I tried recommendations that I understood in this forum to no avail. I tried resetting Firefox. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled. It still doesn't work. It used to work all the time. Now it works once in a great while. Instead of showing as an image in the email it shows as an attachment at the top of the email with the option of slideshow. If you click on the picture it sometimes will appear, more often than not it will not. It works every time when using the Chrome browser.
