I have been getting Pop Up Emails from a site that says it's conducting surveys or offering discounts to click on and proceed to another site. It usually says it's conducting the survey for a known company like Quest, or often uses the name of the company site I'm trying to go to. I have tried restricting cookies, pop up's , etc. but can't seem to get rid of this annoying site. I even had it come up 3 times while trying to navigate the Firefox site. Ex.address .... http://spinandwin.com-eso.pw/us/initial_p.php?t=rp

How do I stop or block this site? Thanks, CCS

For the very first time in recent memory, I am being prevented from "reading more" about various articles received and read in Firefox from both the Huffington Post and Washington Post. When I click on "read more", I get a message that Firefox is preventing me from rerouting from the page I am on to another page. I would like to know why this is happening. This just started today, and most recently occurred on a Huff Post email post about a speech delivered in Baltimore today by Elizabeth Warren. Can someone tell me what the problem is and how to fix it?

Thanks.

We all realize that certain websites are loaded with scripts and moving objects. As an example: accuweather.com, or weather.com. I am running FF 51.0.1 on Windows 10. It's always running into problems. It cannot load weather.com at all. Now Google Chrome handles those websites without problems. What's the difference? Why is FF so lousy with certain websites? Thanks in advance for your help or tips.

I can not make sense out of why FIrefox is crashing. It seems random. Sometimes it happens in safe mode (immediate crash - FF will not open). The crashes happen daily. What seems to fix the issue temporarily is to refresh. OS = Ubuntu 16.04.01 64bit FF = 51.0b9 Here are the steps I have taken: I installed the newest version. This seemed to be the answer for several days. Then the crashing started again. Tried safe mode. Sometimes work, sometimes does not. Refreshed - again, temporary. What do I need to do as a user to get help with this issue? What information can I share? Here are crash reports for the last week: bp-4f8a418e-02df-4e5c-bf6f-ad8bf2161221 bp-b4049ff0-cfe1-44e0-8043-8d2352161221 bp-bfa874f2-2c38-4c88-a5ad-a42162161221 bp-6a116e41-a992-4991-8ba9-77cda2161221 bp-1e27bc84-b5ce-4905-80e0-6057f2161221 bp-ec5e854b-d157-4fe6-a305-131d92161221 bp-9798e30b-e118-45e4-a116-b05af2161221 bp-074c37e9-cfe4-4019-af5d-bacfb2161220 bp-f602efea-5117-4172-b5d9-995842161220 bp-917e1df5-f260-4989-8fc1-a8db32161219 bp-917e1df5-f260-4989-8fc1-a8db32161219 bp-17cf032c-bfd0-44d7-a4bb-3e9dd2161218 bp-7ccfce82-b508-44db-bdd7-f8b7a2161218 bp-e46baed3-432b-4cc0-a972-de6b52161218 bp-8b23dc44-6bf8-4457-bbe1-f1afd2161218 bp-ab89670b-587c-414c-8cad-0bb4d2161218 bp-a2f0a2d7-0d99-40af-a9b3-2e87f2161218

On line for the past week and Foxfire keeps crashing. Says it is sending crash results and I get nothing but crashes. No response or a email on how to fix such crashes. I have been getting for a year or more that Foxfire is not responding but it usually goes away in a minute or two and resumes. This however kicks me off the net all together . Even in the middle of a conversation. Can I get help? I have got my crash reports which are in Greek and ancient Hebrew ( I have no clue what the report states . It is in English but might as well be in those).

Hi all, been using and loving FF for years but have run into a small glitch in the past year or so. I thought it was a system problem I was having but having recently replaced all of my hardware and reinstalled everything fresh I'm still seeing this. I apologize in advance if this has been covered in numerous other locations, I hunted around for a bit but couldn't find this specific problem.

The issue: More often than not, 70% of the time maybe, when I try and bookmark a site using the drop down, before I can finish renaming or choose a folder the window will just close and put the bookmark in the main folder. It's not a big pain just an inconvenience as I then have to open the properties of the mark, make my adjustments and move it manually to the sub folder I want.

ie. The default looks like this: CNN - Breaking News, Latest News and Videos

     When I try and shorten it to just "CNN" and put it in my news folder it will just save and close leaving me with a bookmark in the main folder that just says "CN" or "C"

Again, no biggie, just a minor irritant. Any tips or ideas would be great. Thanks all :)

I had a disk crash where I had to send the disk out for reconstruction of the data. The app data folder data for the profiles was lost, however the favorites where the bookmarks are stored is OK. I can't find a backup file that will import the old bookmarks. With a directory with all the favorites in it, how can I get firefox to use these bookmarks?

I am running Firefox 51.0 Beta 11 and it crashes consistently whenever I try to create a new bookmark. This behavior also exists in Beta 10 version but not prior to that. Once restarted, I found the new bookmark has been created but not completed. I can go ahead complete creating/saving the new bookmark without a problem. But why does it crash?
