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

Ticking and unticking hardware acelleration does not fix it.

I've updated FF from 48.0.2 to 49.0.2 and all my saved passwords are gone. The "Show passwords" button is blank. FF no longer asks to save my password. Did an uninstall, removed profile and reinstalled. No luck. Key3.db (and others) is not created. If I go back to 48.0.2, everything is fine.

Hello. I'll do my best to be succinct here.

1. It started with Flash no longer working. Couldn't even load the Flash settings tabs. Worked in other browsers though. Changed some settings as described in these forums. This helped but only briefly. Flash stopped working again.

2. Did the "refresh" thing. This created new problems. Although add-ons weren't displaying in the add-ons tab, they were still there and operating in the background. Flash again worked but only for an hour.

3. I wanted to do a complete delete (using Revo) and re-install of Firefox. Somehow even after doing this, some settings (and incredibly, add-ons) remained.

4. I installed the x64 version, since this would give me a new install and hopefully a fresh start - the previous FF version I was using was the x32 version. This worked for a few days, but again, Flash died completely again.

5. Tried the refresh here too, and oddly, an ad blocking add-on is still operating in the background, even though it doesn't show in the add-ons tab.

6. I tried some other random things I found on these forums and online, such as scanning my hard drive for corrupted files. None were found. Some of the proposed solutions are a bit above my experience level, and/or aren't explained well, so I didn't attempt them.

7. At this time I have Flash working, and still have intermittent ad-blocking. I have no installed any add-ons since doing the refresh on the x64 version. (The x32 version is uninstalled.)

So, (A) what is going on here? (B) Why doesn't Firefox make it easier to do a COMPLETE uninstall and purge of all program-related files, in order to do a true clean install? (C) Any suggestions?

This is driving me crazy and beyond frustration. Now, I have tried every thing mentioned in the blogs none of the suggestions work ,so lets take a fresh look. My version is 49.0.2 The web pages are usually newspapers The Sydney Morning Herald and the Guardian. When Icut and paste these pages into Chrome or Opera they work fine, but Firefox .well sometimes I get sound and no picture, sometimes I get nothing. I also notice i can't log into any of the blogs on these newspapers, the button for comments just isn't there , it's gone, and yet once again I open these pages in another browser and I can comment, the button is there and all the log in details are available . Totally at the point of uninstalling Firefox forever.

To Whom It May Concern,

I have updated FireFox and noticed that when I begin typing in the address bar you added a 'search with Google' feature. This is interfering with my usual performance because I use the search bar to search my bookmarks. This now adds an extra step that is not wanted. How can I disable this? Thanks!

Upgraded to OS X Sierra. Started Firefox and it crashed about 30 seconds after starting. Tried to restart it. Same thing. Problem continues every time I try to start it. Tried starting it in Safe Mode. Same thing. Tried refreshing it. Same thing. Uninstalled and did a clean install. Same issue. Followed every procedure I could find and nothing seems to work. Kind of wondering what's going on and how I can fix it so I can ditch Safari (useless POS browser)

Not very technical btw.

Thoughts?
