Firefox Crashed and Lost Tabs - Sessionstore backups not working.

Firefox was hanging a bit, so I closed it. Then I ran it again. It just immediately froze and the entire window was white, so I closed it and ran it again. No tabs. I immediately went into appdata and saved copies of the sessionstore backups. I then went to close firefox again so I could use them to restore the tabs, but it said it was updating right before I closed it and then updated to a new version and restarted.

I then closed it and tried putting one of the sessionstore backups into the profile folder as sessionstore.js. Opening firefox then just opens two separate windows with one tab each of google. I tried the other backup and it just does the same thing. This is all it will open instead of my 173 tabs that were open.

The backup files are 4.22 MB large though. Surely the tabs are still in them? Maybe they are corrupted? Is there any way to fix this and get them working?

Long running script giving "continue" "debug" and "stop script" dialogue box. Stopping does not stop script and have to use task mgr to close firefox.

See the attachments.

Firefox is having difficulty with a script and it appears to be having difficulty with a script in outlook.com or at least with one of the internet sites i have open, outlook.com, gmail, or outlook contacts "people". I get this script error and slow response often but not every time i'm logged in. However, it always happens with outlook.com open. Scrolling through the debug window has some references to outlook.com. It is always this same script and when it happens, stopping the script or clicking continue does nothing but hang up firefox. I have to use task mgr to kill firefox and then restart it. Can i do anything on my end to fix this very annoying issue? I have clicked on share data with outlook.com open but i'm not getting this script error at this time.

Firefox Cut-and-Paste not working, found solution in a FEBE AddOn setting

This is not technically a PROBLEM per se , but hopefully more of a possible SOLUTION for a general problem, for some users anyway.

I had been fighting a problem with FireFox updates (I thought) having disabled my Cut-and-Paste ability from practically any webpage to my word processing products (like "Microsoft's Word"). The Cut-and-Paste feature would work if pasted to Window's Notepad, but not to Word. After lots of searching, I found (by accident) a feature in the Environment Backup Extension (FEBE) AddOn feature for Firefox to be causing the problem (for me). Using the "about:config" feature, I searched for "clipboard". I then reset (toggled) the "extensions.febe.copyToClipboard" from "false" to "true". The problem went away. I don't know what issue this may be affecting in the AddOn, but I can do more without FEBE than I can Cut-and-Paste not working.

First I am not using Nvidia Forceware I see that is an issue. I do have an Nivida graphics card but I just double checked I have never used Forcewar

What happens is if I install Firefox, it will launch one time and operate as normal. If I close it(and it is closed I see the exe gone from Task Manager) and I reopen it, it does not open. It just sits as a 20-30 meg exe in Task Manager.

I have tried deleting my profile manually(the profile manager won't even launch), safe mode, and deleting all of my addons. My addons are Ghostery, Thumbnail Zoom Plus, uBlock Origin, and Who Deleted Me for Facebook.

Plugins OpenH264, Flash, and VLC. All at the latest versions.

Regardless even with a fresh install this happens.

I have cleared my cache from %localappdata% and compelely deleted my profile from %appdata%

If I install Firefox 42 the problem goes away immediately.

Any ideas? Thanks.

It’s there on the ftp site and I can get the portable (.paf) version.

Please (for general benefit) fix the link.

Got a brand new MSI laptop and ever since installing Firefox the look of the web page crashes some elements (look white) if the program has been minimized and then opened up again. Usually, when moving the mouse over it pops back again. But it is annoying and I'm thinking of switching to another browser instead. Latest nVidia driver.

Hello.

Since I updated Firefox non of the shortcuts seem to work, desktop or quick-bar. Only way to star it is from the root folder of Firefox, I tried creating new shortcut from there but it doesn't work. Funny thing is that no matter how many times I try to open the Firefox via shortcuts they are shown in the Task manager, all of them, but non of them open the program, they are all around 2.000 K in size but the one that works goes from 75.000 K up.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I have Firefox 44.0.2 but this problem has been going on even on previous versions. If I click on the star it goes through the motions of placing a bookmark. I even see this animation of a star moving to the list of bookmarks. But when I go into the bookmarks they are not listed. I have tried right clicking on the page and clicking the star and I have tried it form the tool bar. Neither works. I have also renamed the places.sqlite to places.sqlite.old and that doesn't seem to do a thing.
