I have a PC with 2 GBs of RAM, running W2K, primarily. I had avoided upgrading from the Firefox 3.x.x series ( or 5 ? ) because it was my understanding that it was the last one suitable for Windows2000. Not long ago, I got an automatic robot request from Firefox to update, and tried to make sure it was still within the compatibility range for W2k.

I thought that I was getting a minor update to a W2K version, but instead, have Firefox 12, which has totally disrupted my internet activity because it constantly bogs down into barely running, or else freezes up for long periods, and frequently crashes.

I want to roll back to whatever I'd used before this disaster. And if there's any special ways to do that, I want to know how it works. Thanks.

Hi. Every time I open Firefox it stays on the homepage for two seconds, then it exits and shows the "Firefox has crashed" window. Usually, I can restart the program in Safe Mode and then it works just fine, but I can't be on Safe Mode forever! I've tried restarting my computer, resetting Firefox, searching the Support site for answers, but nothing works. My version is 14.0.1 and it's up to date.

This is getting really annoying, help please?

from this cache because your username and password are incorrect or your user group does not have permission to web browse. Please check your username and password. They are case sensitive so make sure Caps Lock is not on. This happens 100% of the time.

Hello!

So this last week Firefox has been causing me to have some SERIOUS problems! From time to time I cant view any kind of videos or anything, it just makes my Firefox crash and not loading or anything.

I cant even listen to my own music on my computer :(

I never had this problem before and getting this now is so annoying!

I got Firefox updated, same with Adobe flash player and all that! And as I said, I NEVER had this problem before and I've been using Firefox for alot of years now.

After I open a few different pages or tabs within the pages, the plugin-container.exe max's my cpu usage and the system hangs horribly. It comes back and then hangs again. The plugin-container is reasonable new, because I don't recall seeing it in the Task Manager. Is there a way to fix this?? I know it's related to some apple piece of garbage software that I could totally do without if that helps.

Thanks

I have Windows Vista w/service pack 2/Windows Media Player 11/Adobe Flash Player PlugIn etc all updated. When trying to play Roadrunner video my Internet connection freezes up: also when browsing safe web sites etc. Also, cannot play Roadrunner Radio in Firefox, only works on Internet Explorer. Time Warner Cable cannot solve this issue. Please tell me what I can do. i really prefer Mozilla Firefos for my Roadrunner service overall, but need to work out these issues.

I think some that suggest superfish or surf canyon do not install anything unless you agree is complete nonsense. I think the work for these scam sites and trying to pull your leg. I searched all of my computer and did not find either one of them anywhere. I never allowed any software to install unless I have researched what or who they are and what good they do for me. But nevertheless I got this vicious software interfering with my search on every shopping site I was on. God knows what information they got. Imagine they are on the sites where you buy stuff and enter you passwords, credit card numbers, your address and phone numbers etc. Scary uh!!!. If this company is legitimate why dont they show up in you programs as superfish since their address is superfish.com? Why is there no easy way to uninstall this like real programs? Sorry but I think these scams need to be stopped and rooted out. Superfish: If you are legitimate show up on our computer as one! Dont sneakup and install your scamware in our computers. Please post removal instructions!

Firefox ignores single click and needs double click to a single click feature like a link, a bookmark, enter a text box, push a button

Firefox 7.0.1 on Win7 pro 64

Hi FF team & community,

sometimes FF 6/7 shows a VERY strange behaviour: while doing "normal" things on websites (click links, edit text boxes, scrolling, changing tabs) FF starts to ignore my single clicks. The only way to work is using double click instead of single click (i.e. for links, enter a textbos, changing tab, even for open a Firefox menu) for ALL actions!!!!!

A minute ago, the last example was on

 https://plus.google.com/circles/find 

while moving a contact to a "circle" - FF changes to only accepting double clicks. No error, no message.

I found this buggy behaviour on many different websites - simples sites and sites with complex functionality, too - in the last weeks since FF6+7 are current versions.

With my other two questions I'm getting the idea, that current FF releases contain more bugs than releases between FF1 to FF3.

I have a lot of plugins and extensions and sometimes I don't know which stuff I need/use all the time and which ones I don't use and could be slowing down FF. Could you please go through my plugins and stuff and see which ones you think are unnecessary and why/what it would be used for/what it does - if you know - and how to not only disable them but uninstall too, if necessary. I'll post my most recent crash just in case. It was several days ago - the 18th. It crashes only once in a while. I've kinda been considering Chrome recently; I hope this fixes it. I tried clearing my cookies too, just in case - which I think is shown in the Troubleshooting Info, I think.

Unable to load Farmville (Zygna game - Facebook). I just installed the latest version of Firefox and Flash (11.5) and I had previously fully uninstalled both of them. I checked that the Firefox settings were correct in Tools/Options. Disabled Plug-ins and Extensions, Hardware Acceleration, POP-up blocker, Restored defaults, started in Safe Mode and anything else that was suggested. I would be grateful for any other suggestion.
