I work online transcribing medical reports. Some of the time I have to run a quick search for information. Firefox has stopped blocking video popups. I read the articles about this, but I am losing valuable work time by stopping to write about it and don't have all day. WHY isn't there still an option to stop these? I'm going back to IE because this is frustrating and a ridiculous waste of time.

Don't load tabs until selected option makes firefox sometimes forget the correct address of a tab.

Observed on the steam marketplace (on activation some older tabs will load an item instead of what used to be a search query listing multiple items, page url changed and no back button available).

For example: The tab url was http://steamcommunity.com/market/search?q=RPG+Maker+card

Browser was then closed.

Sometimes when I come back to that tab in another session the url changes to one of the listings inside (a page that was visited) with no way of going back to the old url.

In this example steamcommunity.com/market/listings/753/220700-No%20Transparency?filter=RPG%20Maker%20card

Also note the %20 instead of spaces.

This happens to about 50% of my tabs. (I have over 50 open) I do not know if this applies to other website, but I would assume it would.

Is this a known issue?

For about a month now the version of firefox on my work pc, the "new tab" tiles can no longer be updated. I can move existing tabs. I cannot add new tabs. Dragging a bookmark over an empty tile opens the link in the "new tab". If I accidentally delete a tile, it is gone forever. Firefox does not prompt me to restore it. I am running the current ver. of Firefox. I even uninstalled/re-installed to see if that had an effect, it did not. Windows7, Firefox 27.0.1

I bought a new laptop its an Asus V550C with windows 8 64bit. Ever since I installed Firefox I have had an issue when I use Google. When I go to type in the search box I can get maybe 4 letters in and it will freeze up (Firefox will display "not responding). I have to leave it alone for 10-20 seconds then it will come back but it is a constant problem. It will then usually follow with a script error message asking me to "continue or stop script". I know the description is vague any help would be greatly appreciated. This is a constant problem it happens literally every time I use Google. If it makes a difference it will freeze the minute the search suggestions show up after I type even after it comes back when I continue to type it will usually freeze again before I can actually complete the search. This is an extremely annoying and frustrating problem. I figured this would be the best place to look for answers. Thanks a lot in advance any help at all is greatly appreciated. -Matt

I've seen similar posts, but none that are exactly like the problem I am experiencing. Since updating to FF27 (I'm on a MBP with OSX 10.7), I will go to a page and am unable to scroll down for a short amount of time. Usually it's about 3-5 seconds, and then the 2 finger scroll functionality kicks back in. It's not choppy, just delayed. It seems to happen more on pages with many images on it. I would assume that it had to do with the loading of the images, however, it will happen if I hit the back button to a page that is already cached. I really don't want to switch to a different browser, I've been a dedicated user of Firefox since 2004 and would really like to keep this relationship going : )

Whenever I have Firefox browser window open, and then select to open a private browsing window, the open Firefox browser red X close button grays out and does not close, minimize, or restore up or down. This happens to both the regular Firefox browser window and the private browsing window. Sometimes, this occurs when only the regular Firefox browser is open and not any private browsing windows.

Sur le SIV (immatriculation des cartes grises) depuis la dernière mise à jour de Firefox, nous ne pouvons plus imprimer les contrats provisoire d'immatriculation (CPI) et seulement les CPI les autres documents nous pouvons les imprimer.

Voici la page : https://pro-siv.interieur.gouv.fr/map-ppa-ui/unfiltered/getPdf.jsp?typeDoc=DOC_CPI et le message qui s'inscrit : Une erreur est survenue. Il est souhaitable de réinitialiser la session de votre navigateur avant de vous reconnecter.

Bien entendu nous avons tout réinitialisé sans succès. Nous avons aussi tout réinstaller pour nous reconnecter au SIV (utilisation d'une clé chiffré) sans succés. Nous avons aussi tout réinstallé sur un autre ordinateur sans succès.

Nous avons fait de même sur internet explorer et nous avions le même problème, mais nous avons réussi à le résoudre en ajoutant dans les paramètre d'affichage de compatibilité l'adresse du site interieur.gouv.fr et depuis nous avons de nouveau la possibilité d'imprimer les CPI avec internet explorer.

Comment peut-on faire sous firefox pour résoudre le problème. Bien entendu nous avons essayé tout ce que vous indiquez: coockies, cache, pop up, modifications des préférences dans Adobe... rien ne fonctionne.

Merci de votre aide.

I just ran into this the other day, but it's become a major issue. The exceptions I enter into the popup blocker don't persist from session to session; as long as at least one instance of Firefox remains open the exception list is there, but after I close Firefox and reopen it I have no exceptions left. I only need a handful of exceptions, but I don't want to have to type them in every time I access those web sites!

This is the error box I get as soon as I open FireFox. I never had it before. It started as soon as I downloaded FF27.0.1. If you cannot help me, I will have to remove FF from the family computer because it is very annoying. If you click OK, it goes away for seconds and comes right back. I will await your reply.

Actually several problems have started occurring in the past week (has some kind of automatic update been done recently?), but:

  1. 1) on all three of my pcs, no matter how many times i change the theme, it resets itself back to the default the next time I come back into FF. I've re-downloaded and installed the themes and I've downloaded and installed two others to try different ones. Same thing happens. I restart and the theme is there, but when I close the browser and open it again later, I'm back to the default.
  1. 2) FireFox periodically has been started crashing (quite often) on my PC's.
  1. 3) On two of my pcs, I constantly have to switch to ie tab 2 in order to view some websites. the thing is, I'm using FF on the same websites on other computers without having to use ie tab so I know FF will work on those sites/pages. Sometimes on the two pcs in question I can even view pages in FF but when I go back to the same pages I have to switch to ie tab in order to view them again. this is really frustrating
