As a result I can't open my emails in Firefox.

Firefox has recently started locking up whenever I try to open some websites, and it then starts to hog computer resources by going up to use 50-60% of my CPU where it typically uses 5-15%.

I have had issues within the last three weeks or so where Firefox will lock up when accessing websites like deviantArt.com or Facebook, and sometimes even Google searches. When trying to load these sites, sometimes the program locks up and starts using 50-60% of my CPU and sometimes a steadily increasing amount of RAM. The only way I can fix it is to go into Task Manager and kill the program, then restart Firefox. This isn't always a fix, either, as sometimes the same exact problem immediately occurs when I reload Firefox and have to kill it again through TM. I typically have four to six tabs open, and have never had issues with Firefox like this before the approximate date of the 17th of September. Could this issue have been caused in the more recent updates?

Why doesn't Firefox 7 tutorials consider that people might be hearing impaird? You have a video about the position of the tabs which is useless to me because I am severely hearing impaired

Moreover, your register/login page frustrates my Roboform login manager. It fills the register form, when I am registered and will not fill in the login form. The login form and the register form should be on different pages.

I understand that the increased use of video seems to offer shortcuts to information. But it is not a shortcut for hearing impaired or deaf people. If you have a tutorial video and you have a transcript of article that provides the same information, it should be readily visible so that hearing impaired/deaf people can immediately switch to it.

I understand that you're trying to tell me that I have more options if the tabs are on the top, but it's a disconnect for me and so I clicked on the link to get information about how to switch back to tabs just above the web screen. What I got was a page with more arguments about why I should accept tabs on the top.

I clicked on the video hoping that it would be a slide show type of video, instead I got someone talking who I can't hear.

Please direct me to instructions on how to put my tabs just above the web page.

Thanks

I'm a long time Firefox user (a bit older version) on XP, until few days ago when I switched to Windows 7 (x64) and new Mozilla. And with that switch came whole set of issues I didn't quite experience earlier;

  • "Firefox is already running but is not responding" happens quite often;
  • Videos (YouTube) doesn't load at all, or terribly slow;
  • Websites load in basic html or not at all; videos load over again each time;
  • Gmail doesn't load (except basic HTML);
  • Navigation research engine happens to be Yahoo instead of Google;
  • Mozilla completely resets upon computer restart, losing my history, cookies etc.;

I can't tell what causes these problems, but generally, this ain't same ol' Mozilla I loved, and is only harder to use. In my opinion, noone ever needed simplified things, especially if used to what they once were.

Best regards
