I just had to do a fresh install on my laptop after my hard drive fried. I reinstalled Firefox, and apparently it gave me a new version. I am an online student, and I need Java to run my school's website. However, when trying to find the appropriate tick box in the Options/Content menu, it is not there. I need Java to be on at all times, not just for one site. I also do not see anything about a red plugin icon on these websites; I don't see a plugin icon anywhere. I need this fixed ASAP, so I would appreciate a quick response. I cannot get homework done without it.

Hello,

Whenever I want to visit www.google.com or www.youtube.com, I receive the massage: "Connection is not secure"

"You have asked Firefox to put up with www.youtube.com, a secure connection but we can not confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally websites will show trusted identification when you want to set up, to prove that you are going to the right place a secure connection. The identity of this website can not be confirmed."

This problem just showed up recently, and I haven't changed anything in my FireFox settings. Is there any way to solve this problem?

Kind regards, Gerben

I went to a website to watch a video, and when I was finished I closed the tab the website was on. When I was finished on my computer I shut down Firefox. Upon reopening Firefox later it restored the page. I do not know why it's doing this, and I cannot seem to get it to go away. I have cleared all my cookies/cache, etc. as well as doing a virus scan and nothing can tell me why this is happening. It's quite annoying, and I would like my browser to function properly. I have recently updated to the latest version of Firefox so everything is up-to-date. I'll take any suggestions anyone can throw at me because I am fresh out of ideas.

Thanks in advance.

I can access Gmail on any other browser, but not Firefox. I have looked at other suggestions, and nothing works.

I have cleared Cache, History, etc. In fact, I have it that Firefox automatically clear cache and history when I close the browser. I also removed any cookies pertaining to Google or Accounts.Google, and I even tried disabling a few plug-ins and extensions that I use, yet it still won't load.

The error I get on the page is:

"The page isn't redirecting properly. Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

Firefox consumes too much RAM, caused by js

I'm having problems with Firefox consuming too much RAM memory. Several people are complaining about this but I did some further research before posting here, using about:memory, and I found out that js-non-window and js-main-runtime are causing this.

When I start up a blank Firefox session I immediately have an allocation of 260MB of RAM. About 75-80% of this is taken up by those two js (javascript?) processes.

After opening about 10 tabs with different webpages the RAM usage has gone up to about 750MB. During the time the tabs are open most of the extra MB's are consumed by the window-objects (40MB per page, still seems quite a lot to me for just a news site with one article...) but after closing them the memory usage didn't go down and it transferred to the two already mentioned js processes. This transfer to the js processes is not always the case, it seems to happen only if I open a lot of tabs, let's say 10+ perhaps.

I tried disabling Javascript using the plugin SettingSanity, but this makes browsing quite uncomfortable of course and worst of all it doesn't solve the problem. The mentioned processes keep using the same amount of RAM.

I have this exact same problem on all my computers and laptops so it can't be a coincidence. Is there nothing I can do about this? Is this under investigation? How can a browser with 10 web pages open need almost 800MB of RAM?

And please don't answer "install more RAM". The pc I have most problems with has 2GB of physical RAM and I really do think that opening 10 web pages should be possible on such a computer. Doing the same in Internet Explorer consumes less than half the amount of RAM memory.

P.S: I sent this query using IE because I could't get to this page in Firefox. The "Ask This" button didn't work...

Every time I open my Firefox browser Win Patrol reports a hidden file. I'm using XP Pro with SP2 and they are always in C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp. These files always have etilqs as the prefix with the last group of numbers and letters changing at the next time I open Firefox. This is beyond inconvenient, it is more annoying almost harassment, having to respond to WinPatrol's report. There is no way to ignore it in Win Patrol's settings so I have to either uninstall Win Patrol or Firefox. Do you know what these hidden temp files are and how I can stop them from being a constant nuisance every time I try to use Firefox? Thank you for any help you can give me.

After clicking on link, Firefox opens 2 duplicate address tabs of that link. Here is the the website: http://www.hifishark.com/search?q=sony

On the right side of page, When I click on SHOW, 2 duplicate address tabs of that link open. I have been on this site before and 1 tab would normally open.

I think this started to happen when I clicked on "Restore Default Set" in the Customize Toolbar window.

This does not happen with IE or Chrome browsers.

The SHOW link from above website, seems to be the only link that this is happening. When I right click on SHOW and click on "Open Link in New Tab" 1 tab opens.

No change when in safe mode.

Does this happen for anyone else?

Any ideas appreciated.

Thanks,

This is extremely frustrating and has been happening for months now. Sometimes the sites load, but then stop working after a few minutes, and then it's nearly impossible to get them to load again. It just hangs at "connecting" for ever until it either times out or just goes to a blank tab. Other sites work, but anything Google related such as search, gmail, finance, etc or Facebook simply don't work.

It appears that this is a common problem recurring every 6 months or so according to this board. I've tried clearing cookies/cash and then even reset Firefox and it still happens. Any suggestions to fix this problem?

Thank you very much!

Hi, I am not IT savvy, so hope I can explain this well enough.

I use Firefox as my default web browser, but reluctantly feel I need to move away because I cannot resolve a problem I have with Adobe Flash crashing regularly every day.

I have restarted Firefox, but the problem is still there. Same when I restart my laptop.

I have even reset Firefox, following instructions in a thread I found on here. The problem went away for a few days, but is back again. This is so frustrating. Friends tell me to give up on Firefox, like they have, but I'd rather find a solution if I can.

I don't watch videos, so typical sites I have problems with are eBay, Facebook and 'Street View' on Google Maps.

Other info......I am in the UK and my laptop uses Windows 7. I have checked the Firefox Plug-In page, and all my plug-ins are showing as up to date.

Please help.

Vikki

So I recently switched from Opera to Firefox because they had a horrible updated that stripped all the features I loved. Anyways, the first week or so after using firefox it worked fine and never crashed, now recently it crashes almost every 30 minutes or so. I get a crash report asking me if I want to restart. I have no idea why it keeps crashing and I have tried closing all my tabs (I usually have about 6-7 open at all times), but the problem is still there. If you need any information ask and I'll give it. Thanks!

This has been going on for at least a year. Every time I update Firefox I hope the issue will be resolved, but if anything it's worse. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling. I reset. I turned off Hardware acceleration. I updated all of my plugins and Firefox. I tried Safe Mode. I turned off protected mode in Flash. It has something to do with flash, I'm sure. I used flash blocker and it seemed to help, but not totally. I'll open a tab and it will freeze. Says (Not Responding). Little green processing circle will freeze as well. This happens with flash intensive sites, which these days is most sites. I tried using IE and the sites worked. It's gotten to the point that I actually have to stop using Firefox. What's the deal? Why is it STILL like this? The only resolution is to open task manager and close Firefox.

I have several FF preferences and add-on preferences that will not stay after a restart. I set them, but after I quite and restart FF, the old settings are back. I dutifully followed the mozilla support-site instructions and tried all options to fix the issue:

1) check for locked preferences--nope, not locked 2) User.js overides -- no such file 3) Reset Firefox to default -- not possible "reset" button is completely missing

I've used the reset several times, now, which was quite disheartening. But, it is very suspicious that I cannot find the reset button at all, now.

Someone seems to have asked this before, but the answer to just make a new profile was horrifying. Either this button is supposed to be there or it isn't. If it is supposed to be there, then this is an extremely serious security problem. Something is wrong and I must find out what. Why is this happening?
