Many times when I launch Firefox (v. 48.0), a second tab opens automatically and it is directed to the noscript page, which happens to be right now https://noscript.net/?ver=2.9.0.14&prev=2.9.0.13. I don't want this, the focus changes to that page even if I am right in teh middle of typing in an URL in the tab that I launched. It is very annoying.

Had to post this to register for a username, I went round in circles half a dozen times but there is no link to do that anywhere. You have to find a topic that does not come up with any help suggestions, hence the gobbledegook. What a ridiculously stupid way to try to stop people raising issues when Firefox does not work!

Unresponsive Scripts and Crashing

I'm not sure why but I now get constant unresponsive scripts and crashing. The unresponsive scripts freeze my firefox and checking the box that says "do not show again" or whatever does not seem to do anything at all. Even if I do check that box the same unresponsive notice will appear.

That however is not a new thing, The issue when the unresponsive script comes up and checking the box so it does not show again does nothing, it has been going on since the past updates. Nothing has been done, and its starting to seem that after 3 years nothing will be done about it.

Every time that my Firefox crashes I send a "crash report" but from what I can tell that also does nothing at all, I've been sending crash reports for awhile now and nothings been done at all it seems, I even put my email so that firefox can communicate with me about the crash. Granted, I can't do anything but provide details about the crash, but if the option is there why not make use of it?

I have a computer running Window's 7, 64bit. I have the latest version of FF installed. When I try to open FF it gives me a message that this version is not compatible with Windows XP. I have gone through the entire options menu and cannot find a way to remove this issue. I have also uninstalled FF and reinstalled.

I recently sent a question to you guys about my problem with 48.0.2 and this is the answer I received.....


"Firefox 48 crashes at startup if websense is installed. Right now, they aren't sure how to fix it. The hotfix was deployed to people using Firefox 47 and lower (down to 40) to detect if websense is installed, and if so, not update Firefox yet.

I don't see how it would affect game rendering. It's probably not the cause, considering disabling it doesn't fix the problem. :)

What games are you having the problem with? If you can provide the address, we can check what the cause might be. If it's on Facebook, try the solutions at Fix problems with Facebook games, chat and more."

Maybe a photo will help..

Hello: I've searched everywhere and seems NO OPTION to change my email address in my Firefox Account? The past forum had no posts from qualified Firefox users. One post said "there is no account in firefox" huh? The next post took the topic off the subject of "change email address in firefox account" to "change email address in the notifications" ?? So why is it so difficult to change my email address in my Firefox Account? Thank you.

The update from 47 to 48 has been devastating. This time, the search engine is always Yahoo Search. I assume Firefox gets a kick-back for this new feature.

I have no add-on or tools-bars and version 47 was fine (48 sucks). This applies to the search bar or the default home page search.

Isn't there a simply fix? I can't find a customize feature to change the default search Yahoo to eBay permanently. Its always back to Yahoo after every single search. I what my browser MY way.....not someone else ideas of what I want or need.

If I can't make Firefox mine....Its off my 4 computers here at home. To many other choices to be hamstrung by Firefox. Right now Firefox is right there with Microsoft Edge as the worse browser on the planet.

BIG thank you to Wesley Branton! You are so awesome!

Moses a smaller thanks to you for your comment and for closing the old thread. Your fix would've been above my abilities and comfort level. I'm really sorry that my question was off-topic. I've used "only" mozilla firefox since I had my first computer and have loved it. The fact that mozilla firefox was constantly crashing (and sending crash reports) I thought the mozilla firefox community would be a perfect place to come. Had you, Moses been the first reply to my question I would've been forced to move on from mozilla firefox for good! There's no way that I could've put up with the constant crashes any longer. Please feel free to immediately close or delete this thread! Thank you.

Thanks to mozilla support. Appreciate you all.

Wesley Branton you are the man! Please take care and have a safe and wonderful weekend!

Please consider this question/issue solved. T/U

Every earth cam went black several weeks ago. Mind you I still use an old OS. (NO intention of upgrading it either.) So my version of firefox is 48.0.2 And I even tried with Safari though that one is so dated now I rarely use it.

I tried on two computers. One got the most recent update of flash just the other day, AND the most recent update of java. The other I rarely use and has not had those last two updates. BOTH stopped being able to view earthcam at about the same time.

I tried starting firefox in safe mode so all the adblockers and what not are off. Same issue. Even tried looking at earthcam on my cell phone and got the same black screen.

So could this be some problem with AT&T? I read that somewhere that once that person drove away from home it worked on their phone. I don't see how that would matter, if their carrier is ATT wouldn't their phone just use the nearest ATT tower? I haven't tried it yet but will soon.

One last thought, earthcam is flash based isn't it? What are they going to do when flash goes away for good by 2020?
