I have a user that keeps getting the same issue with Firefox about 2-3 times a month.

Whenever she launches Firefox, it stays white. She can interact with the browser, but nothing attempts to load and everything is locked to a white screen. She's unable to open any bookmarks or load any websites. It just stays white.

We've tried uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox from the server she was in at the time, and it worked temporarily. And it seems to be a single server that has this issue. It's up-to-date.

Hi!

It worked before but suddenly stopped working. When I click the icon, it looks for a second that firefox will start since the icon shows in the dock for half a second, but it then disappears and the program doesn't start. It doesnt even tell me that something is wrong. I have tried open the terminal and entered "/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P" but all I get in the terminal is this message "The patch directory path is not valid for this application (/Users/jonatanf./Library/Caches/Mozilla/updates/Applications/Firefox/updates/0)".

I hope you can help me so i wont have to browse on chrome anymore.

missing minimize/maximize/close icons from hyperlinks in OE

Running Windows 8.1 PRO version and latest version of Firefox 37.0.2 I set Firefox as default browser in Windows 8.1. When I open Firefox normally from the taskbar or from the shortcut on the desktop all things work as normal. IE The Minimize / Full Screen / X exit but all appear in upper right. Works fine always. using standard themes and no issues there.

I downloaded and installed Outlook Express 6.0 (a version of Outlook Express re-designed to work with Windows 8.1 from here: www.runasxp.com and the program works just like the old Outlook Express I used in Windows XP PRO. I dual boot and by using this email client I can save my emails from my different accounts to the same drive and folder(s) of my other emails that was built using Outlook Express (Microsoft) in my XP operating system. Point is they save exactly the same so I don't loose any emails going back and forth from Windows 8.1 to XP.

I also have another email client I use mostly for weeding out emails I don't need or want to download, called POP Peeper. Fully enabled email client with ability to have multiple accounts and also ability to reply, forward, or create new email in there if I want.

Problem comes when I open Outlook Express in Windows 8.1 and follow a hyperlink in the email. If my default browser, Firefox, is not already started and OE starts the Firefox, there is the missing icons in the upper right. IF the browser is already running and the icons are present (as they always are), then any hyperlink from OE will open a tab, as normal, and the icons are still there, as normal. I do not get this situation when I click on a hyperlink from POP Peeper when Firefox has not been already opened. I do not get this when Firefox is up and running and I click a hyperlink from an email in Outlook Express 6. ONLY when it first starts out running "Firefox" from a hyperlink in OE6 do I get this issue with the blackened icons area in Firefox. The icons appear to still work, because when I click in the appropriate area it minimizes, full screens and all the way to the right where the X is it closes like it should.

Why does Firefox behave like this? Is there something missing in the registry that does not open Firefox properly from hyperlinks at times? You can also see the conversation at this link where I posted pretty much the same question. The "creator" has emailed me in the past that it is a Firefox issues as he googled and found issues with this same problem. Except under normal circumstances I do NOT have issues with Firefox and the missing icons in the upper right. link -> http://runasxp.com/Thread-Firefox-and-links-from-OE?pid=6437#pid6437

Hello, when I place a .lnk file for Firefox in my Autostart Folder and I restart my PC and log in a Firefox Window is open but some things don't work:

-Bookmark-Bar doesn't load properly. -Right Click/Addon Windows doesn't work. -Fullscreen Mode is weird.

I think it may have something to do with Firefox unable to read User-Files when I am not logged in?

I have a fairly slow link to the Net (because I'm cheap). I also have an older machine (32-bit Dell, same reason). Hence I have noticed recently that certain pages/sites have greatly increased in size. In particular, when I invoked FF this morning with a blank starting page, approximately 7MB had to be downloaded before anything happened. This took 56 seconds, which is rather a long time to bring up a browser whose code is already on my disk. Is this the new normal? Am I doing something wrong? I have a few extensions like Adblock (a necessity) but I would think these could be backgrounded while the initial page is being set up.

With FF not running, I'll be using my computer and FF will open to an empty page... and maybe 30 seconds later it will close. This happens at random times. I've looked through Sync & Auto Update settings and do not see any controls established by FF that would allow it to run autonomously. Any ideas?

I re-installed Firefox. Every time I start Firefox, I get a long message in a window called “Browser console”: alert() is not supported in background windows; please use console.log instead. There was an error configuring Browsing protection. This may be due to your proxy configuration. Please run the command "/usr/local/f-secure/bin/proxy-localhost-bypass" in Terminal or ensure that your system is configured to bypass proxy for host 'localhost'.

Can somebody explain what this "bypass proxy for host 'localhost" means for my iMac?. (any security risks?).

Hi, I have Windows 10 in a VMWare Player 14 virtual machine. This installation is fresh new. I had installed Firefox 58 and when I try to start it, it flashes for an istant and disappear, but it's still open.

I tried to enable hardware acceleration on the VM, nothing changed. I tried to reinstall it or rename xulstore.json. Even the safe mode is not working and flashes.

The pc where the VM is running is also Windows 10 installed fresh new and there Firefox is working without problem.

Could you help me?

After deleting my user profile, firefox won't start anymore. Every time I start firefox the Crash Report window opens. This happens also in safe mode. I tried creating a profile with the ProfileManager option, but the result is the same. I have been waiting for a couple of weeks to see if a system update would eventually fix this (I installed firefox from Arch's repos). I run Arch Linux 64-bit. I have also tried installling firefox-nightly and even downloading firefox from mozilla with no success

If I want to open a link from anything external, text editor, desktop shortcut, applications, etc., while Firefox is running, I have to close Firefox and then click on the link, which will then open Firefox. This is an ongoing and intermittent problem that can't always be duplicated and seems to occur most often after Firefox has updated, but I am asking for a resolution or workaround now because there hasn't been a recent update and Firefox is once again ignoring outside links when running, and only opening them if I have completely closed Firefox. This is annoying and unnecessary and of course if I change default browser to Chrome or IE, external links will open in those browsers with no problem while those browsers are running.
