Can't paste into text windows, and I keep getting signed out of websites. This happens with any version of Firefox newer than 49.0.2. Is there a fix for this?

Firefox is not loading pages at the pace it normally would. Comparing the same page versus IE, IE is loading it almost instantly but Firefox can take 20/30 seconds to load the same page. Further to this Firefox has begun to crash/shutdown unexpectedly very frequently.

Firefox goes non-responsive, lags, wont let me search or go to websites just constantly loads. Safe mode fixed it but i cant figure out why.

Details all in question, I load it up it freezes and says non-responsive for a bit then rights itself, I tr to type it goes non responsive again, I try to open the options area, not responsive. If i use the adress bar for a search, it just sits there and loads, if i use a bookmark or something the furthest it gets is saying the website name on the tab while constantly loading.

I loaded it in safe mode, worked perfectly but I kinda need some of those add-on's.

I updated the ones out of date. Java deployment toolkit was there and it said it was vulnerable so i set it to never activate, that didn't fix it.

I currently have: Extensions AdBlock Plus Avast online security Avast safe price (disabled) Grammarly for firefox

Appearance: Default

Plugins: OpenH264 video codec provided by cisco systems inc. (Always active) Primetime content decryption Module provided by Adobe Systems Incorperated (Always active) Shockwave Flash (Always active) VLC Web Plugin (Always active) Widevine Content Decryption Module Provided by Google inc (Always Active) Adobe Acrobat (Ask to activate) Java(TM) Platform SE 8 U101 (Ask to activate) Nvidia 3D Vision (Ask to activate) WacomTabletPlugin (Ask to activate) Java Deployment toolkit 8.0.1010.13 (set to never activate)

Services: None

(ps) I'm posting this on a different computer then the one with issues but i have changed the version and such to match properly)

This popup appears every time I shut down the computer; from event viewer: Application popup: plugin-container.exe - Application Error : The exception Breakpoint A breakpoint has been reached.

(0x80000003) occurred in the application at location 0x4f49006f.

Click on OK to terminate the program

the location generally ends with either 6f or 2b.

These are some crash reports that should correspond to the error

is there any way to determine what plugin is causing this?

When I open Firefox it opens on Yahoo instead of my gmail account. Prior to this, I was on ebay, and I noticed that my address book was in the window(!) which seemed suspicious. I exited the internet. When I turned it back on, clicking on Mozilla Firefox, it went to Yahoo, not Google gmail. All my tabs are gone. What can I do---have I been hacked? what do I do? I hope somebody can help me. masako

When I went to see if there were any Mozilla updates for v.49.0.2 it noted that I needed to restart to update Firefox and seems to indicate that if I do I will receive funnel cake onboarding Q3-2013 v1.2 and mozilla88-values existing 1.0. What the heck is that? Do I need it? I am a minimalist. Can I avoid downloading that stuff just mentioned and just get normal updates? Also when I did click on the update a couple months ago it looked like it was going to be a large file including these two items so I bailed out on it. I just don't want unnecessary software and want to know if I can get normal updates or is it required to download these two items just to get the latest update.

Today when I started Firefox V49.0.2 (Windows 7) I found that "one" of many bookmark folders which contained additional folders inside is missing. My first thought was it might have gone into the Recycle Bin but it did not. Next, I looked for it in other folders in my Bookmark collection but did not find it their either. Using hints on the Support Pages, I looked in my Profile Folder and cannot find a readable view of the folder nor the links that it contained. I did find commands in REGEDIT for FIREFOX and BOOKMARK but found nothing helpful. What is most odd is that a link opened from History when I try to Bookmark it, one of the subfolders in the high-level folder is present in the list even though the folder is not shown in Show All Bookmarks.

I really need to recover this folder, subfolders, and links so hope that someone can define the process necessary to accomplish this task..

Hi. Been having an issue with Firefox this last week (though it's happened before, just not to this extent) in that's it's being incredibly slow and moves at the pace of a snail. To give some examples, when I try type (like right now) there's a delay for the words to show up instead of popping up as I type. Another is the browser seems to freeze up for a couple seconds when I try and scroll up or down, before doing at an quick and uneven pace.

I'm uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox (reinserting my profile after doing so), disable all themes, plugins and add-ons, restarted Firefox in safe mode, and none of these have made a positive difference (in some cases it actually made it worse).

Any way of fixing this? I've been using Firefox for years now and I don't relish the idea of having to transition to another browser if hte problem could just be solved on its own.

After using firefox for a while (usually longer than an hour consecutively) I will occasionally scroll on a webpage, only to have the scroll icon which appears not disappear after I have stopped scrolling. Interestingly, the scroll bars do not disappear even upon closing firefox; currently, the only way I have found to get rid of them is to restart my pc. I have attached some screenshots to better convey this issue, and if there is anything else I can do or provide let me know!

Thanks

So basically I've been using Firefox for quite some time now, I have a load of bookmarks and I frequently have upwards of 50> tabs usually <100. I use an old OS - Vista.

I have found Firefox to be stable until recently, as it is really unstable. I am almost crashing a lot of the time. What I mean by almost crashing, is that the browser stop registering my clicks and the page(s) I am viewing go cloudy and the browser goes in a 'not responding mode'. However, it rarely actually closes Firefox and crashes properly to desktop. But I usually have to wait a good 10-30 seconds for it to respond and return to normal. Sadly, this happens often and it is quite common for a 'not responding' problem to be followed by another immediately after.

I have sometimes lost old 'restore sessions', so I may have edited a few things in my directory - but I don't see why that would affect the stability of the browser in this way.

Again, the problem is not that Firefox crashes full on to desktop; it's that it goes into a 'Not Responding Mode' more than frequently.


Any help would be appreciated.


Many thanks,

Rich
