I have a tab/website that I cannot close. Every time I try, I receive a large window that states "Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page? PRESS ESCAPE OR CLOSE THIS ALERT", then the site remains. I removed Firefow from my computer. Then went to the Firefox web site, re-installed Firefox and the same website/tab in still there.

What is happening here?

Just one site - fsheff.com - doesn't show images in Firefox; they appear in The Other Browser. The site also leaves a little blue hummingbird as favicon.ico. I don't know if this was true before migrating to Win7, but it doesn't seem so.

Add'l problem just noted: The address bar does not show the displayed page name once a page other than the "http://fsheff.com/" is selected on that site. "http://fsheff.com/" sits there as long as you are on that site.

Weird.

I have closed the toolbars and navigation bar by mistake and do not see any way to re-open them. I have absolutely nothing at the top of the page except the blue mozilla border. HELP!!

The Mozilla help refers to the tool bars to reset the tool bars. I dont see anything and cannot find anything by right clicking anywhere on the page.

From the example given in the Firefox tutorial, it would appear that Firefox performs an automatic backup of the user's bookmarks in a haphazard fashion, i.e. sometimes every day and other times several days (weeks) go by without Firefox automatically backing up the bookmarks. Does anyone know how often we can rely on Firefox performing an automatic bookmark backup? I'm new to Firefox and want to know if I need to perform regular manual backups of the bookmarks to be safe in case of crash. Thanks!

I tried to delete all cookies using Tools->Options->Show Cookies->Remove All Cookies. But all deleted cookies keep coming back after few seconds. I suspect there is a malware doing this. I run into this problem in the past. It was caused by an AddOn called something like * xg.dll by Relevant Knowledge. When this add-on was removed the problem went away. But now, it comes back again.

For many months on one of my computers when I'm trying to connect to: https://hitslink.com/logincheck.aspx I've got that strange message "This Connection is Untrusted" While I managed to add this exception permanently on some computers, it is impossible on one of them. Why? Every time I'm connecting to this website, I have to add the exception again and again.

(Latest) Firefox gets berserk when using Java applet to upload videos on YouTube

Whenever I use YouTube's Java applet for uploading videos to Youtube, Firefox goes berserk - CPU usage max (I have a 3.2GHz CPU!!), Firefox gets unstable and hangs a lot and it won't be possible to do anything with Firefox anymore until I quit the page that has that java applet.

I don't know if it's a Firefox's personal issue with Java or is it caused by an Add-On.. Is there a "Add-On Task Manager" for Firefox or something like that? Where I can see which Add-On(s) starts eating up CPU, when Java app at YT is started?

I left Firefox to upload videos and I went to sleep. When I came back CPU usage was still at max. I wanted to browse the web and I though that hanging problem affected only the page with Java app, so I opened another Firefox client. But that one lagged too of course and when I closed IT, the first FF, which was uploading to YT closed too - it crashed, silently. Restarted FF and it came up with a message, that recovery was not possible due to corrupted recovery data.

I got pissed off and I got myself Google Chrome again - It has no issues with YT's Java video uploader applet at all and CPU usage is also nonexistent.

Hello "It Takes a Community", I'm new to Mozilla Firefox, which seems more like a climbing wall than a learning curve. But I like it much better than the Google start page.

  • I'm using a Toshiba laptop and a Windows 7 system.
  • Mozilla Firefox Start Page has a Google Search box in the middle of the page. The font in and around the box looks like a 4. Whatever it is, I can't easily see the words.
  • Clicked the Tools drop-down, clicked on Options, clicked on Content, changed the font to 12, and clicked OK. The font did not change on the start page.
  • I went into the Advanced option and un-clicked the box to allow websites to use their own fonts, but that didn't help at all.
  • Then, looked all over the Google support site, but I couldn't find a solution.

Maybe using the word "font" in my search is my problem!!! I've been looking for a solution for well over an hour.

Please help! If this keeps going on, I'm going to need an anti-depressant!

Best regards, and thanks for any suggestions.

Hello, I have had this issue for a long time now and just dealt with it by always reading my mail in IE, which I dislike very much. It's very strange...When I click on my Yahoo Mail shortcut (or access it any other way), the page shows up for several seconds very distorted and totally magnified before it reloads in IE, at which point this is in my browser window: chrome://ieview/content/reloaded.html. I set the page to automatically load in IE because I cannot read the distorted page what-so-ever in Firefox. At one point, it worked for a couple days and I thought it somehow fixed by itself. However, it went right back to messing up. The thing that initially triggered this was that my cat was stepping all over my keyboard one day and somehow she hit a combination of keys to cause this issue. Any help would be much appreciated!

I have cookies set to expire when I close Firefox, but want some select sites to have permanent cookies. I can make this work by by going into the Tools | Options | Privacy | Cookie Exceptions dialogue box and then manually typing in the URLs for the site I want to have permanently stored cookies. But it seems like if the website is currently open in a tab, I should be able to click something, somewhere, like"Allow current website to have permanent cookies".

Is that possible?

I am using Firefox on many sites. Among them, some are in french while other are in english. No problems while reading. But, when we are writing something, it would be very nice if Firefox was able to switch to french/english, provide for example an associative list of languages/URLs
