I freshly installed Windows 10 and I can't install Firefox inside "ProgramFiles (x86)" I tried running as admin, changing admin privileges but nothing worked, then I tried to install it inside "C:\Users\*username*" and that worked. Any ideas why this might happen?

Last week I downloaded Windows 10. Since then my Internet connection has slowed from the 30 mbps I pay for down to 1 mbps. I have made sure all my drivers are up to date, updated and performed a full scan with my anti-spyware/anti-malware software, and performed all the disconnections of sharing that I can think of. Is there some way to restore my Internet speed? This is regarding Wi-fi speed, and all other devices in our home on Wi-fi (which are still on Windows 8) are performing at full Internet speed.

I installed Win 10 on my Toshiba laptop and when I launch Firefox it opens but then just hangs up. It does not go to my homepage. It has all my bookmarks but when I click on one, nothing happens. I ran it in safe mode, same thing happens. I uninstalled, downloaded fresh version (40.0.2) and it will not go beyond opening. Anyone else experience something like this?

Since upgrading to Windows 10, when downloading a video from youtube or any other site, video works but there is no audio. I have updated all the extensions, restarted in safe mode, made sure quicktime, realplayer, flash were enabled and can't get any sound. Opera and Edge work fine. What to do other than switching to Opera?

I am running Windows 10 with Firefox 40.0.3. If any more information is needed, just ask.

I go to the SAP Support page and log in with my credentials. I then proceed to 'Simplify my Login.' When I click on 'Download and Install a Browser Certificate,' I receive a page saying there is an 'Authorization Error.' I had no issues with this using previous versions of Firefox. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So, randomly whenever I have FireFox or IE open I get a random black screen for a second or two then it comes back on, I only ever get this when browsing the internet, never when gaming or anything else, I can't narrow it down to anything since I recently installed Windows 10, I have a GTX770 (HDMI) I have also checked Event viewer and there is nothing there about it.

(I have tried running Firefox in safe mode and it still does it)

We are working on a library system management software that also provides us a webapp to work. The date is auto-populated in forms in the format yyyy--mm-dd instead of the fact that the computer is setup on mm/dd/yyyy format. Is there a way we can change this or is it something that is embedded in the website. Just a note that the same thing works fine in chrome only.

Hi,

I know you have all seen this question before but none of the answers I have found work for me. My site loads perfectly fine in other browser, just not Firefox.

I have a local website with a style sheet that is saved in the same folder:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" />

I have defined the character sets in the HTML and CSS documents:

HTML = CSS = @charset "UTF-8";

I have both the latest updates for Chrome, IE and Firefox as of today.


Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

I'm unable to login at aa.com for about six weeks now. This only happens when using Firefox. Error message is:

Error code: ssl_error_inappropriate_fallback_alert

I have been browsing the forums and looked up similiar errors but none of them were helpful.

1. All TLS settings are standard in about:config

2. I don't have Bit Defender anti virus or any other third-party product

3. I'm using Windows Defender

4. The issue just came up recently

It works fine in Chrome and even Internet Explorer. I am using Windows 10. Manipulating TLS settings in about:config does not solve the issue.

Any suggestions?

As of early this afternoon (Tuesday, September 15th, 2015) my Firefox browser has been acting odd and hanging over and over on sites that mainly use HTML5, such as Youtube. As far as I can tell, no-one else has encountered this specific behavior before using the latest version of Firefox. The hangs persist even in safe mode, and I am certain that my addons are not causing the issue. I have tried refreshing Firefox, updating my graphics drivers, and even updating Flash, but nothing is changing.

firefox 40.0.3.

a couple hours ago it started to hang when downloading of a file completes. i've tested it in safe mode, i deleted the entire mozilla folder in appdata\roaming, i've cleared the entire history, cache, etc. i've cleared the windows temp folder. i've disabled my AV and still the issue is present.

this started a few hours ago. two days ago it was fine. i've encountered that issue a few versions before but i dont remember how i got rid of it.

it will even freeze when i open the 'all bookmarks' window.

what could possible start that behavior out of the blue?

Hello, I have had a problem with watching videos on Youtube (Firefox crashes when loading it) but have fixed it by clearing corrupt cookies. However it seems this only works when either logged out or logged into a second account, whenever I log into my main Youtube account it corrupts the cookies, and only this one singular account. Is there a corrupt cookies tagged along with this account? All and any help is appreciated.

While playing FarmVille 2 foxfire keeps hanging - says at top "not responding". I can load game and play for a few minutes but then hangs. Sometimes it hangs right after loading. Will not come back so I have to quit foxfire. I have been having the problem in last several weeks but yesterday it got really bad. I usually only had to restart foxfire once to get it to work. I have tried refreshing foxfire. Also disabling hardware acceleration. My plugins are up to date. My computer is only 1.5 years old and I have windows 10. I can play FV2 on Google Chrome and MSN edge but both are slow and jerky. I really prefer foxfire over the other ones.
