Performing any facebook actions (post, like, comment, ...) is redirected to the webpage https://www.facebook.com/ajax/ufi/modify.php "Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on getting this fixed as soon as we can. Go Back"

The big problem is that it is wrong since more than 2 months. And i have to use back IE only for fb.

Occurency : always Firefox version : up to date, now v15 Extension and plugins : default ones Conditions : brand new PC at work

For info, i have the same issue on my home PC since 3 months, since FF12 release, in this case with plugins protecting privacy. But even desactivated, it is not working. As a first contact, i posted related bug report in fb process, but i never had any reply since, neither one email to confirm bug report.


How to do, please?

I updated java and ended up with snap.do as my search engine and home page. I researched it and found nothing good about it, a typical malware program that isn't picked up by CCleaner for some reason. It is easily uninstalled in chrome and IE but for some reason Firefox resists efforts to uninstall it. It doesn't show up in programs to uninstall, how can it be uninstalled along with all it's components and why does Firefox aid in its destructive methods by making its removal so difficult?

I recently updated to Firefox 15.0.1, and I'm having a lot of trouble with it constantly freezing. This doesn't happen on any one website and is very random in occurrence. I have already tried running in safe mode and updated flash, and I'm still having the problem. After a few seconds, it may start responding again however, most of the time it continues to hang. In order to close Firefox when this happens, I have to open task manager and end the process because nothing in the browser responds. This has become very annoying, and I would appreciate any help I can get to solve the issue. Thanks!

UPDATE: I've noticed that the freezing seems to happen every time I check my email (Yahoo & Gmail), and when I'm on Pandora. It still occurs randomly at other times, but I noticed it's very consistent with these sites.

My list of "Favories" bookmarks from Internet Explorer disappeared; I can't find them- "Import from IE" brings up an obsolete list of Favorites...how do I find

I have tried every option under all of the "Help" articles in order to find my missing bookmarks ('Favorites') from IE, and nothing has worked. When I tried "Import from IE", it loaded a list of Favorites at least a year old. I cannot find the current bookmarks which are stored in the folder "From Internet Explorer". When I click on the bookmarks icon (star) in the upper right corner, the menu no longer displays the option to select "From Internet Explorer". The only thing I have not tried is the "Restore" option available in the library window under "Import and Backup": I don't know which of the files listed would be the correct one, and the instructions caution that whatever file(s) are chosen now will replace the earlier file. I don't want to accidentally erase all of my stored bookmarks (hundreds of them), and be left with only the bookmarks that I've saved just recently - I also don't want to end up with an outdated (old) set of Favorites.

Videos from youtube, facebook, or other sites won't play. Quizzes from a learning site won't work. All play fine in Explorer. I have updated flash and java. I have disabled my add-ons.

When a video is supposed to play, I either get a screen that won't load OR....an error message saying to try again later. In youtube, I see all the thumbnail videos on the side, but can't play anything.

I'm stuck with Babylon as a homepage. I used REVO to remove the toolbar but something in the process must have gone wrong because the homepage keeps coming back. I cleaned the About:config as stated in earlier posts (mstone, homepage and new tab) and when I restart Firefox the first tab is firefox and the second babylon. When I close and startup firefox again then the first tab is babylon and I'm back to square one. The removal of the browser manager seemd too technical to me and I didn't dare to do it. Any suggestions?

I just updated Firefox to version 15.0 on the Mac. Suddenly, all of my bookmark folders that are supposed to be in my Bookmarks Toolbar are no longer there, and the Toolbar won't let me put them back there. This is substantially non-optimal. I must say, I'm becoming less and less of a fan of Firefox with every passing update, which saddens me.
