i'm seeing a bunch of anomalies such as taskbar buttons closing & reopening without my doing anything to cause it. i'm seeing flashes of some sort of changes to the top window border. i'm seeing the text input stop responding momentarily. i'm seeing windows open & close before i can see what they are. i'm seeing a busy icon for the mouse pointer while some of these things are happening.

the browser itself hasn't crashed & the plugins haven't crashed (though flash crashed a time or two). i turned off the automatic adjusting of the clock & that caused things to stop for about a minute or two & then it began doing it again.

it is beyond annoying & justifiable reason for me to not only uninstall firefox but also speak of the avoidance publicly.

Pretty much as in my query.Everything works ok,surfing,vid dld,(except for Ant vid dlder) etc,but I can't use the google search box because of the "problem loading page" message which suggests that I have the wrong url for that page..Thing is,I don't know if there was a FFx update in the update of 3 days ago.Never had this problem before in about 6 yrs of using FFx. Downloadhelper for vids works ok though.That's about all really.

After a recent update on my Linux/Ubuntu system, all select > options have a background color of black and the text enlarged to almost double the size (background and text size for the select boxes were not affected). IE, Chrome, and even the edition of Firefox on my wife's computer were not affected and are still showing the options with a proper white background with reduced type size. What gives? The website is bhardin-rps.com. I tried to post a screen shot, but it won't upload.

I just created a new sync account on my desktop, but when I logged on my laptop, the prompt asks me to create a new account. I am sure that my user name and password are right. Both devices have Firefox 51.0.1 Laptop is Windows 10 and desktop is Windows 7.

I had this problem since last year, but only recently did I urgently need to since my bookmarks and passwords.

Thanks

Something is wrong with Firefox. Any time I go to any site and visit it for awhile then get ready to leave it, the computer completely shuts down by itself and reboots itself. I never ever had this problem with any of the other Firefox until now today 1/26/2017 approximately 1;30 PM.

Recently Firefox always starts in firstrun mode. I have tried various ways to stop this happening. I have: 1. Refreshed Firefox 2. I dont have Zencast, Mcafee or Norton 360. Nothing else on my machine changed. 3. I don't have a user.js file.

I have been using Firefox for years as a developer. Its becoming unusable for me. I can't waste so much time trying to get it to work.

This is a recent problem that I haven't had before and none of the answers I've seen have solved my problem. Whenever I try to watch a YouTube video, it buffers for a long time. Sometimes I never get past an ad because it will stop two or three seconds in and the only way I can get it going again is to refresh the page. I have to constantly refresh to hopefully get a five second ad or one that I can skip in order to get to the actual video and when I get there, it starts buffering and at that point it either plays after a minute or two or it doesn't play at all. It does the same thing in safe mode. The only time I'm able to watch videos without this problem is in a private window.

I have uninstalled Firefox two times and refreshed multiple times, but nothing seems to be working. Every other website I get on works fine, but videos don't fully load on any of them. Can some please help me, I've been trying to figure this out for hours and I really don't want to use another browser.

This is about Firefox not from Firefox. Seems to originate from Entrust.net which I never applied for. Trouble started after I downloaded Windows 10 and caught a bunch of trouble from Yahoo, then tried to update Java and got extra sneaky stuff with it. I use Kaspersky, which is apparently sending the message about you and they have taken over my computer trying to fix everything for several hours yesterday and today but still getting the message that Firefox certificate is basically expired. Whatever a certificate is. BTW box with message is still up in the corner, don't know if you can see it.

Hi all

e.g. ask for 'xyz.com/dir1/dir2/abc.php' but get 'xyz.com' instead.

If we reload the page immediately it comes up correctly but wait too long and it goes wrong again.

It does this 30 - 40+ times a day! 

Only firefox seems to have this problem. I tried adding 'www' to the front so above would become 'www.xyz.com/dir1/dir2/abc.php' This worked fine for a day or 2 then it started going wrong again. The content of the web page makes no difference - I substituted a 3 byte file for a problem page so it only contained 'abc' = no markup at all and it STILL went wrong.

actual typed url: http://www.sdf-curtains.co.uk/imapTest.php actual page seen: http://www.sdf-curtains.co.uk

are there any settings to adjust? I have not touched about:config I swear (yet!)

Thanks very much

Steven
