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 : )

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!

The desktop application is misbehaving. Clicking on a tab always closes the tab. I can not get access to drop-down menus under file edit history etc. Sometimes many tabs are opened. I have tried resetting and reinstalling without fixing problem. I have also lost drop-down menus in Thunderbird. A scan using Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes showed no infections. This is being sent from a different computer than the one playing up Hope you can help

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.

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.

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.

Yet they have a 'lock' and I have a ! !!!!!!! before the https! I have verified my certificate with several other ssl verification checkers and and there are not any problems like the one firefox is fabricating. You are the only browser that does this since the new upgrade. What is going on? I suspect you heard this before. write me back and give me a solution or I'm out of business.

My history is set on private browsing. I tried changing it to remember history and removed cache and cookies if there were any. I tried to see if the sign on section on ESPN appeared. It did not. I am back on private browsing. Maybe I should delete Firefox and reinstall or delete ESPN and reinstall.

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

Hard drive broke. Bought a new one. Fresh Win 7 ultimate install. Fresh FireFox install ver 27. I had saved the xxxxxxxxx.default folder to import the bookmarks into the new install. Following the directions for copy and paste into the correct directory does not work. No bookmarks appear. I have a huge folder(310 MB) within the backup files called Cashe that seems to have a lot of something in it. The file called places.sqlite seems about empty. I don't know if my copy was corrupted or if it actually was that small, 10 MB?

Where are the bookmarks really kept, in places.sqlite? If so I guess they are lost forever. But what is the Cashe folder for?

Have been running Firefox on iMac with no problem till today - suddenly quit responding & won't open. Called Applecare. Uninstalled and tried to reinstall from your website. Won't download. Found an update of Firefox 27.0 that I had apparently downloaded and updated on Feb 8. When I try to open that, i get a window that says it's running a compatability check for add-ons with this version. There it gets stuck and never finishes running the check. I don't know what add-ons are, where they came from or where to find them to delete. I can't get into your support.mozilla.org website from my iMac using Safari. Had to resort to my PC laptop from work which has Firefox on it too (which is working fine) to submit this.
