It happens after i changed my proxy setting few days ago. Now every time after i start Firefox, i have to click option--> proxy setting and then click OK without any changes or mirror changes, it then works.

I cant save my setting in the option--> proxy page. Every time I start firefox, the proxy setting is selected as "manual" with nothing in the ip blanks, although I have changed it to "Auto" last time before i closing it.

The problem is not fixed under the "add-ons disabled" mode. The removal of caches, cookies or sth else do not work either.

What should I do? Plz reply me, it's annoying.

Chosen solution

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

Thank you very much, it is solved. Form the article you gave me, I found that there's some wrong settings in the user.js file, and it was fixed.
