Last night I could no longer play Bejeweled Blitz, Solitaire Blitz, or other Adobe Flash player based games on Facebook using Firefox. The games load but do not respond correctly. I have to click twice on the page to get the view to update. However, these games work correctly in Internet Explorer. This started for me on the night of October 19. I tried four different Flash games tonight, some from different developers, and none of them worked correctly. I tested a Flash game on a site outside of Facebook, and it worked fine.

3 or 4 days ago, a popup came on my Facebook page saying that Firefox needed to be updated or fixed, sorry I don't remember what it said. I clicked on it and kept on the page with no problems. Got off the a page about an hour or so later. Came back later and tried to play a couple of games and they wouldn't load or took forever to load also a yellow lock showed up which was always green before. Went to the Monzilla site and tried to figure out what to do. Reinstalled Firefox as suggested and seemed to work after that. Came back later and tried to get on again and had the same problem. Again reinstalled Firefox, but this time it didn't repair it. Since that time, it hasn't worked to completely open at all. I have tried several times to reinstall since and still won't work or install partly. Have also run Norton complete system scan several times including Norton's eraser still didn't do anything. Been using Firefox for years and never have any problems before, I'm at a total loss.

As you can most likely see, I'm not a computer wiz, but, do use it several times a day.

Upgraded to 49.0.2 this morning. whenever I use either the "Back" or "Forward" navigation buttons (or whenever forward is available) the drop-down menu of sites is displayed and won't disappear until I click somewhere on the page in question.

This is annoying yes, but it also makes me wonder why I am still fighting with FF.

Each time I go forward or back a page (using the left and right arrows at the top left of firefox, next to the address bar), the pulldown history automatically opens. I am NOT right-clicking either arrow, and yet, this occurs.

This just suddenly began happening (before AND after updating from 49.01 to 49.02). I made NO changes to FF, nor updated any app/extension.

It's annoying and frustrating, because each time I go forward/back a page, the pulldown opens, then I have to click to close it, then click to continue with that page or go forward/back another page.

I hope I've explain this sufficiently.

Please help . . . annoyance/frustration level is high. ;-)

Updated to Firefox 49.0.2 I go to facebook, and try loading a java game called Bingo Drive. It takes 3 to 5 mins to load the game. Tried running in safe mode.. Same results.. Tried refreshing, it said it had a problem with one of my tabs or something like that..

I usually run it with Adblocker plus and Video downloader helper..

If I go to facebook and load this game in MS Explorer 11, the game loads in 15 seconds.

No idea what is causing this problem of slowness.. It says all my add ons or what ever are up to date.

A few days ago I started having an issue with streaming media (youtube seems unaffected, vids in fb also are unaffected) When I'm playing something, and switch tabs to do other things while media plays in the background, the video freezes but the audio continues to play. This does not happen when playing vlc outside of firefox. I have cleared my cache and cookies, cleared network cache, eliminated all addons and extensions, and got rid of flash. Nothing is working. I can't find any other resources to help. I'm using windows 7, have checked for malware and viruses (none), everything is updated.

Updated Firefox to 49.0.2 this AM. Since then... I can log into eBay.com, but NONE of the photos come up. I cannot log into www.kiva.com at all. I do have the ABP Ad Blocker add-on activated, but deactivating for eBay web site gets me ads but not photos. I am assuming the setting for the prior Firefox version carried over into the newest version, but I do not know how to confirm this.

In the meantime, I am finding this new version a waste of my time...

I did try to go to www.isup.me/ per another user's string w.r.t. version 49, but that web site seems down as well (or cannot get into it if Firefox is tying up connection). Strange response message there, too, about google.com being down.

I have been trying for some time to install add-on for LastPass and TrueKey, both password management programs.

Each time I try I get the connection failure message and nothing gets installed. Is it a problem with Moz servers? I have found nothing in the public forums except a lot of frustration that this error is occurring after being reported so many times over such a long period.

If it cannot be resolved quickly, I will have to stop using Firefox, even though it is my preferred browser for general use. I need access to my password lists.

My college set up their own link to Pearson's Math Lab, where I can access the course and complete assignments. I have other classes that use Pearson's labs and I have no problem accessing any of them-or any other website-, EXCEPT for the math lab. I can access it on my phone when I'm not connected to my wifi, but its hard to do any work on such a smaller screen. I keep getting the same error message when I try to go to the page to log in. I've tried other browsers, clearing cookies and history, reinstalling Firefox, restarting my router for the wifi, and nothing has worked. I have the current version of Windows 10 and Firefox.

The website I'm trying to go to is https://centralaz-mlpui.openclass.com/

The error message is : Secure Connection Failed

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I've been trying to fix this since this morning, so any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated!

Might have too many adobe acrobats installed? Dunno. There are 3 showing. Firefox used to work much better than Chrome. Now, Firefox is so bad and Chrome is actually working much better. Has the world been turned upside down :D?? The biggest problem is with playing Farmville, Zoo World and Solitaire Blitz on Facebook. It used to work fine. What happened? There used to be some plugin box that I could find in a folder, uncheck or delete, and then things would work fine, again. Am not computer savvy and cannot find that box, anymore :D. Apparently, some script or something in Adobe Acrobat was written incorrectly or something? I am on Windows Vista Home 32 bit.

Somebody please help.

Not sure how to describe this...

On my Windows 10 system with Firefox 49.0.2, clicking the bookmark button results in nothing happening. It looks like a bookmark is taken and passed from the star button to the book button (ie. bookmark). However, when I go look for the bookmark, I cannot find it in the bookmark file. I do not see any error messages. I've checked the bookmark file to ensure that it is *not* read-only -- in fact, I deleted it and recreated it. I've also disabled the only extension that I think is doing anything with bookmarks (PinIt for Pinterest). Still the bookmarking doesn't work.

Any ideas what else to try? Reinstall Firefox from scratch??

Since the update to 49.0 and subsequently .1 and .2 whenever I'm on Facebook and login to Clash of kings (Flash Player required and is latest version) the game is completely unplayable. Jerkiness, slowness and basic no playablity.

My PC is no slouch as it's a gaming rig but for Flash Player to reach up to 2.2Gb of memory usage is kind of weird. So far I've seen no evidence of issues with other websites but there are not many that I go on that still require Flash Player but I play Clash of kings a lot and unfortunately the latest Firefox updates have "forced" me to use IE yeah IE!! who the hell uses that! Because it has no issues at all playing Clash of Kings and it still uses Flash.

Hoping you will resolve this because Firefox is my browser of choice and I refuse to use Google Chrome and will only use IE if in dire need.

If you need more info then I'll post it here, but whatever you did in 49.0 broke some stuff.

Cheers,

Dave

Every single time I either resize the window or scroll through pages, firefox does this strange visual glitch. It doesn't happen on chrome, internet explorer, or anything else. I have already tried downloading and updating firefox to its newest version, but to no avail. I'd really like an answer to this, as it is horribly annoying. Thank you.
