PDFs stopped loading for me several revisions ago. I do not use any PDF plugins. I have followed the advice given in other troubleshooting threads on this topic by: trashing mimeTypes.rdf; turning off hardware acceleration; setting Preferences -> Applications -> Portable Document Format to Preview In Firefox; all of my pdfjs about:config options are set to the defaults. PDFs will not load. I am given an endless loading animation.

Since I have installed a new PC & downloaded Firefox it won't allow me to log into secure sites such as the FA and RAC. As these are reputable sites I don't understand why I can't access them. This problem has only started since the new download. What has happened to Firefox? I am having to resort to Internet Explorer or using my laptop!

Since I transferred some files from a thumbdrive, I often see Arabic in other download file names and error messages. Refreshing Firefox (at the cost of losing my add-ons) did not fix this. Thanks for your time. I am having trouble downloading generally, files sometimes do not download completely.

Thanks John 99 for your suggestions.

Thanks, I was on 45.0.1, although i have set auto updates - now on 45.0.2 The problem happened with 3 different merchants, so I think not a problem with their sites, and yes I can access my Amex account using Firefox. So it makes me think it is a one of my settings or pop-up barriers or something.

I'll try again when I next buy something, and if it is still a problem, I'll try in safe mode and delete cookies and cache (although I have auto delete of cookies - maybe that is a problem?) and I recently cleared the cache.

If it is till a problem, I'll post again.

Thanks again.

Hi,

I have opened many windows of the Firefox (No tabs) so there is no connections between them. When I press on the 'File-Exit' or on the power button in one of the windows, it closes All the opened windows instead of the specific window that active.

Is it should be like this or not?

Thanks...

Apps called Web2Pdf and Web2Pdf Converter, neither one works

I'm using a Toshiba 64-bit laptop, running Windows 10 Home, 8gb memory, 1T hard drive.

In the past I've had the App Web2pdf and it worked very well and I really liked it. Just within the last couple of days, it has stopped working. I disabled it, rebooted, re-enabled it, didn't work. I uninstalled it, rebooted, re-installed it, didn't work. I then uninstalled that and installed an App called Web2pdf Converter, thinking it would do the same thing, but it wouldn't work either. I disabled it, rebooted, enabled it, and it didn't work.

When I click on the little icon for it on the menu bar, absolutely nothing happens. If I click on the little drop down arrow next to the icon, I get a drop down menu containing Options and Web2Pdf Converter Home Page. When I click on either one of these options, again absolutely nothing happens.

I've run out of ideas, so I'm here asking for help. Thanks for any suggestions you can provide.

How to prevent Firefox from loading Adobe plugins in about:config?

Hello,

I have two adobe reader installations both of which include a plugin for Firefox in their directories deep within Program Files (x86). After a search I found that to disable Firefox from loading these plugins I need to edit plugin.scan.Acrobat preference in about:config. Hence, I changed it to 100. However, both plugins were still available even after I relaunched the browser. I tried other values like 100.0, 100.0.0, 100.0.0.0 with no success. Ultimately, I'd like to only load one of the plugins with the higher version but first I need for the preference setting to work.

Thank you.

Firefox crashes

Firefox ESR 45.7.0 on a Lenovo ThinkPad T420s running Windows 8.1 x64. Graphics: Intel HD 3000 (9.17.10.2843) and NVIDIA NVS 4200M (10.18.13.5445) Optimus. Because I was … (read more)

Firefox ESR 45.7.0 on a Lenovo ThinkPad T420s running Windows 8.1 x64. Graphics: Intel HD 3000 (9.17.10.2843) and NVIDIA NVS 4200M (10.18.13.5445) Optimus.

Because I was getting some Firefox display corruption with default Intel HD graphics​, and since this machine also has an Nvidia adapter with Optimus technology, I configured Optimus to use the Nvidia adapter for Firefox, which fixed the display corruption issue (at the cost of increased power consumption), but then I started getting crashes in plugin-container.exe.

Tried disabling extensions, but that did not solve the problem.

I switched back to the Intel HD adapter and the corruption returned, but the crashes went away. Not a terrific trade-off, but then I remembered that Firefox has a graphics setting:

    Options → Advanced → Use hardware acceleration when available

Unchecked that option, which had no apparent impact on performance, and the crashes went away along with the display corruption.

Diagnosis: Firefox has issues with hardware acceleration that may be exacerbated by Nvidia Optimus.

My FF browser this morning suddenly stopped going to indeed.com.

when i type in indeed.com in the browser bar, it stays on the current site.

Indeed.com is up and running - works in IE and Chrome.

I tried clearing FF cache/cookies but no luck. Ran virus scan - nothing came up.

Good afternoon! My name is Andrew - I've been using your browser for 10 years and I was happy with everything in his work. I hasten to inform you that about a week ago, the browser itself was automatically updated and instead of the usual fvd speed dial (an extension for using bookmarks), I had ("NEW TABLET" - screenshot attached). Firstly, I did not ask me to impose anything, Secondly, this service is terribly inconvenient, in the third place, I can not return the bookmarks I lost from the fvd speed dial extension. Please write how I can get back the work of the fvd speed dial extension and remove the "NEW TABLET" service. With all respect, Andrew

The current bookmarks include text, which is totally unnecessary IMHO, especially after using IE (although MS loused up this in edge too.) Having many book marks to go to and seeing the loss of convenience when having to go through another menu to find the desired bookmark, why not have the ability to use small icons? Why not make it simpler? Why not make it easy? Why not live up to the propaganda of being a better browser?
