After updating to Firefox 27 all webpages take a few dozen seconds to several minutes to load. When loading a webpage Firefox's status displays "connecting" and the CPU gets maxed out with 95 to 100% of its cycles taking by Firefox.

The computer is older so it is a little slow but Internet Explorer 8 has no trouble opening the webpages and neither do other computers on the LAN so it is not a network issue. I have tried restarting Firefox, disabling add-ons, deleting add-ons, disabling hardware acceleration, restarting the computer, and reinstalling Firefox after wiping every trace of it and its user data from the hard drive and registry.

CPU: AMD Athlon 2800+ 2.08GHz RAM: 1GB OS: Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 32bit

New problem in firefox 29:

When I click a link that opens the new page in a new window, the window pops open in the last partially maximized state that it was in. Should I maximize the new window (in Windows 8.1) and close it and re-click the original link, the window opens again in the partially maximized state, not the last fully maximized state that I previously closed it in.

To create it as I've encountered it:

-go to https://news.google.com

-click on any article. the default behavior should be to open the article in a new window

-the window won't be maximized in my experience

-you can maximize the window and then close the window/ article

-re-click on the same article and the new window should appear again in the non-maximized state, not the fully maximized state that you closed it in previously


One point of note. Right-clicking the same link that opens the new window and specifically choosing "Open Link in New Window" DOES open the new window in a fully maximized state. I repeat, the new window does open fully maximized when you choose "Open Link in New Window" from the right-click drop downs menu. But, this doesn't happen with the simple left-click, which I'm concerned with.

Yes, ever since the update to Firefox 29.0 the other day, I often get the "already running but not responding" message on trying to start the program, and thus have either to kill the service in task manager or reboot. I've already changed the properties of the profile to uncheck read only and already disabled an add-on (tab mix plus). My other add-ons are Better Privacy, AdBlock Plus, and Fire FTP, and darned if I am going to go without any of them. I can't help thinking there's just a serious bug in this new rollout. It's especially frustrating as I've used and supported Firefox and Thunderbird for so long now. I feel I'm being chased to Chrome! (I run Windows Vista, no firewall. The other suggested fix, deleting the lock file, is recommended, I see, only if the message persists after reboot, obviously not my issue.)

So recently my Firefox browser has been leaking memory like crazy going up to 1.7 GB in used RAM. It starts off fine when I first open it, but progressively gets worse over time, making scrolling a choppy and painful task. This started with version 28.0 but I've since upgraded to 29.0 and the problem persisted. I've done hours of research on the problem and have tried all the following solutions, to no avail:

- Turning off hardware acceleration/smooth scrolling/auto scrolling - Creating a new profile - Completely uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox - Running it in safe mode (still lagged, even in safe mode!)

Has anyone found any real solution to this problem?

Just updated to Firefox 29.0 and the tabs not currently viewed are now the same colour as the background above them at the top. File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Help are distinguished in a different colour though. I've checked but found this is the default theme. But it wasn't in 28.0, the tabs have always been a different colour to distinguish them. How do I tell Firefox to make the tabs a different colour to that above them? It's very annoying/disconcerting and just looks pretty awful. Not had this problem with updates changing the default colours before. Would have thought it's a no brainer for the default to have the tabs a different colour to distinguish them. Don't want to muck about with other themes, just want it like the default use to be. Thanks.

Very paranoid re connecting to web for updares downloads, no warez or cracks, behind a router, NIS in place , all installs scanned prior to running. Only Firefox 29 via stub with usual extensions ( NOScript as one of the first) and Office 365. Flash plugin installed. Other standard plugins.. No freeware added as yet

Even with IE as default, clicking the link opens FF 3 windows. !! Wot ? Flushed cache and cookies.. Scanned with all known scanners: cookies etc, nil else

Uninstalled Firefox. Ran the office > my account link: no extra windows  :(

What is this ?? .... PLEASE MOZILLA SORT THIS OUT. going ahead without FF would be a pain.

In the new interface on Firefox (which started for me today ... May 2 ...), I cannot open a new tab via the "+" sign along the top or by using Ctrl + T. If I want more than one thing open at the same time, I need to open a "New Window", which doesn't make much sense. I don't necessarily want a bunch of windows but may need a few tabs open at the same time.

I hate icons. I'm not an ancient Egyptian. The invention of the alphabet is what allowed civilization to be what it is today.

1) How do I make the icons bigger -- they are miniscule & I can't distinguish one from the other, even if I knew what the stupid symbol is supposed to mean.

2) How do I get text that is LARGE ENOUGH TO READ when I Hover over an Icon? Note that my Minimum Font Size for web page display is 24 Point. I need that on all of the text which the Foxfile "application" shows me as well.

3) How do I eliminate the icons altogether and instead get a drop-down menu (in 24 Point type) in English?

Cannot stop https from loading on browser on my.yahoo.com homepage. Homepage loads but will not allow access to any yahoo sites (mail, weather, finance, etc.) but I can access news, etc from other sources from the homepage. have tried disabling add-ons, reverting to previous firefox 29.0.1 from 30, manually correcting the address, nothing works. The issue seems to be limited to the yahoo homepage, but I have no idea why, and cannot access any yahoo sites (because of the problem) to try to get info from them.

The message I get is "this connection is untrusted" when I look further, it says "invalid security certificate", but I'm sure that's because browser is requesting a secure connection in the first place.

Any help would be appreciated.
