When I open Gmail, I get the usual list of messages. When I click on a message to read it, everything appears as usual except the box with the message text in it. To see that text, I have to click in the Reply box, and then I'll see the original message text quoted.

This is true on three different Gmail accounts. I've not changed any Gmail settings. I have enabled and disabled various extensions and User Styles that affect Gmail, and turned off Greasemonkey, without effect.

Yesterday I did update Java 7 update 10, but Gmail was still working after that. I did install several new extensions at that time, but I tried disabling them and restarting, and the problem persisted.

Please help. Thanks.

I use a Mac desktop version 10.6.8. On advice from my ISP and Apple advisers they said uninstall Firefox and then reinstall a new version and that should not have Alot as the opening page. Have tried this several times following online instructions but each time the new version opens with Alot!

Recently, most of the icons that signify specific sources or locations or actions on web pages in my browser have stopped appearing. I get either no image or only generic gray icons (like a document icon). It makes most sites (e.g. like Amazon) nearly unusable. I don't think I've made any changes recently in my browser or my system. What has happened and how can I get my icons back. (BTW, I am NOT having this problem with Internet Explorer.) I am using Firefox 17.0.1, with an up-to-date Windows 7.

I installed 17.0.1 soon after it was released. Worked fine; worked fine yesterday.

Today when I start 17.0.1 a window pops up "Abine initialization error Please close Internet Explorer (sic!) to complete initialization. Cancel to continue initialization later. [Cancel] [OK]"

OK button closes window and pops up another: "Abine initialization cancelled Restart FireFox (sic) to complete initialization and use Abine."

Cancel button pops up first window again. After a few of these, the second window is popped up instead.

.......

Tools Add-ons Taco Disable, followed by Remove gets the grey bar with the text saying that Taco has been removed. Exiting and restarting Firefox repeats the behavior above.

Against your advice, I tried installing 16.0.2 over 17.01. 16.0.2 now crashes every time. I have reinstalled 17.0.1 Behavior is as above.

........

I suggest that, once this problem is solved, Mozilla reexamine the approval of add-ons from Abine. This is not the first time that Abine has arranged to have a Firefox add-in that can not be removed.

Firefox' about window shows "Restart to Update" every time an update is released, as many other users already reported. After restarting the same happens again. This issue is as old as Mozilla is providing the Mozilla Maintenance Service. Completely uninstalling, rebooting and reinstalling Firefox, as suggested in the KB, only works until a new update is released! This, unfortunately, already forced me to replace Firefox on all machines in my domain with Chrome half a year ago. Despite MSI deploy of Chrome, it keeps all Chrome installations up-to-date without any Admin intervention.

> This problem occurs Workgroup-PCs as well as Domain-joined-PCs on operating systems Windows XP SP3, Windows 7 and Windows 8 or the respective server equivalent.

> Sometimes, "Restart to Update" is shown when Firefox is already current, sometimes it is not current.

> The problem occurs only for ordinary Windows User Accounts (not Administrators). When logging in as Admin it says "Hooray..." and in about window it says "up to date".

> When restarting and logging in as ordinary User, it again shows "Restart to Update".

> Possibly this is caused by a permissions problem for ordinary Users to query the Mozilla Maintenance Service!?

I am running on Windows 7 x64, and whenever I try to use a version of Firefox newer than 17.0.1, I get the "couldn't load XPCOM" error, followed by two instances of "FlashPlayerPlugin11_5_502_149.exe - Bad Image: C:\Windows\system32\msdmo.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support."

Then Firefox closes. Every time I try to open it, this happens; it is unusable until I uninstall Firefox, delete the folder in Program Files, and reinstall 17.0.1.

The MSDMO.dll error shows up even in 17.0.1; I'm not sure whether they're related, but in 17.0.1 only one instance of it shows up shortly after I open FF, and then FF works normally.

The MSDMO error has been showing up since sometime last summer, but doesn't seem to interfere with much.

Have https://www.google.com/ set as home page.

What I get: Go to a website

What I do: click Bookmarks>Google url link

Result: https://www.google.com

Go to a website does result in Google home page loading, but it appears to be loaded locally, not via an internet connection. Have Flagfox installed as an add-on, but this does not load until I do step 2, and only then is any activity seen in the lower left hand corner of the browser as the Google page loads.

Odd thing is, without an active internet connection, FF reports page not found error and Google is not displayed.

Note that step 3 is missing a backslash at the end of the url, even tho it is set and entered properly in Options for General>Startup.  ???

A https connection should also be green if valid, and I am not seeing that on most https sites. GRC.com does show this green color, but that is the only one that seems to work for me. Clicking the lock icon does give me vendor ownership information; the others state 'unknown'. Example: "You are connected to mozilla.org which is run by (unknown) Verified by GeoTrust, Inc. Your connection to this website is encrypted to prevent eavesdropping.

Firefox hangs after resume from hibernation

The problem is basically exactly like described here, only the solution presented there does not actually work for me: http://askubuntu.com/questions/59062/a-script-on-this-page-may-be-busy-or-it-may-have-stopped-responding-everytime

What happens is that every time I hibernate my laptop (with Windows 7 Pro, 64bit), when I resume from hibernation, FF is completely unresponsive (hangs) for minutes. Easily around 5 minutes. Eventually a dialog box pops up with the following:


"A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete."


And the two buttons are: "stop script" or "continue". After I click "stop script" the unresponsiveness finally goes away, and FF starts working normally again.

I think possibly even clicking "continue" also makes it go back to normal, but I'm not sure anymore since I have recently just switched to sleep mode out of frustration in order to not deal with it anymore, and I don't remember exactly if I get the same result from clicking either option.

This is extremely frustrating.

Someone else reported an extremely similar symptom here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/935110?esab=a&as=aaq It might even be the exact same symptom. Maybe that person simply never waited long enough for the dialog box to appear, but otherwise the unusability symptoms are the same.
