Hi,

I had an automatic update install to firefox around 2 weeks ago. Since then it has gone from being the best and fastest browser on my computer to the slowest.

Even just typing this message there is a massive lag between me typing and it appearing on screen. Prior to the update it used to run perfectly. If I try and clear the search bar to type in a new address it can take 5 - 10 seconds or won't do it at all so I end up typing into what's already there! Basically every action I take with keyboard or mouse has a delay attached to it.

I have so far tried to reset Firefox option which has made no difference.

Am running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 with 4 GB of RAM. Over half of hard drive space remaining.Chrome which I also have on my PC is running perfectly normal. If possibly I'd like to carry on using firefox! :-)

Thanks for any help.

A lot of people have this problem, so did i.

It only happened if i was logged on as an user (on multiple computers), thus the administrator user account didn't had any problems.

After multiple months of frustration and browsing the internet for a solution i was at the point of try to change each setting in Firefox and see if it would work, if not set it back. Luckily my first educated guess was the correct one! :)

What worked for me was to set the 'dom.ipc.plugins.flash.subprocess.crashreporter.enabled' to false in about:config

1. Thus type in your browser the next url: about:config 2. Click the button: 'I'll be carefull, I promise!' 3. type in the new searchbar: 'dom.ipc.plugins.flash.subprocess.crashreporter.enabled' 4. double click on the preference to set it to false. 5. close the tab in Firefox 6. close (all instances of) Firefox 7. start Firefox 8. happy surfing :)

Enjoy

Last night I was installing a software and it tried to install SEVERAL viruses on my pc that I successfully managed to stop the installation. But I got another serious threat that I want to know whether it's still there and how can I get rid of it.

When I opened the software I was trying to install, it automatically opened a new tab on my Firefox opened window and in that same instant I knew something wrong was happening. The thing is that it loaded some pages in the same tab, using a full redirection so I couldn't go back to them and it ended in a modified Google (www.google.com/"something"). The thing is that I tried to go to the download page and Firefox started telling me THAT IT DIDN'T EXIST, then I knew something heavy was going on. I used the Reset tool (about:support) and parts of the virus got lost in the process. But the thing is that even when Firefox is set to start at https://www.google.com.uy or even when I put the blank page option for starting, it ALWAYS redirects me to the page of the virus ( http://www.istartsurf.com/?type=sc&ts=1412823435&from=sky&uid=WDCXWD5000AAKX-00ERMA0_WD-WCC2EHK4239242392 ) and if I then open another tab/window without closing the main, it justs do as I configured it (home: google, new page: blank).

Since I already reset Firefox, I want to know whether I should use another mechanism (likely deleting the entire ...\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla folder) or just reinstalling Firefox? I have already passes a full scan of my PC with AVG Internet Security 2015 (found 23 virus on the virus main folder and some Windows folders) and passed Ccleaner against every Firefox component.

If I forget about adding anything, please let me know.

Tried everything: deleting History, deleting relevant cookies, checking Hosts list, etc etc.

I am currently using Firefox 32.0.3 now on my Windows XP machine and I hate the look and find it difficult to navigate customizing the thing. It took fifteen minutes to set everything up to even come close to resembling what I used to have. Even with the Classic Theme Restorer it is horrendous. Will Firefox be able to restore the look and feel of 28.0? I would appreciate it if the next update went back to the classic settings and appearance as a default. The only reason I updated was due to supposed vulnerabilities in 28.0, otherwise I would never have upgraded. And as it is, I am seriously considering returning to 28.0 as it is, because honest to God, I cannot stand this thing. I wish I had a screenshot of how it used to look to show as a comparison to how it looks now.

On my desktop (laptop is okay), my homepage is Yahoo portal, when I start FF, Yahoo loads and displays correctly, if I try any link, I get streaming text only scrolling down the page, if I click a link, close FF and start it again, the link now loads and displays properly, but again if I click any link or click on the Home icon (which is set to Yahoo portal), it displays text. Been like this for a couple weeks (the desktop has auto update for FF, so I'm not certain which one started the problem. All works fine in IE or Chrome. My laptop (which has identical addons) works fine. I disabled all addons from the desktop, but still the same result. Is there anyway I can reinstall FF without losing all my bookmarks and settings? I think this is the cleanest solution, just don't want to lose everything I've accumulated over the last 10+ years.

My firefox screen typically goes black and then crashes. The black screen seems to sometimes be initiated by scrolling, other times it happens seemingly without any input. The black screen flickers on and off (without a discernible pattern) when I scroll. Sometimes it goes back to normal, most times it doesn't.

Firefox typically crashes after the black screen occurs. But, FireFox also crashes regularly even when there is no black screen issue.

My Firefox tends to crash every few minutes and is therefore unusable.

Here are my last 10 crash logs:

I have lost everything as the ultimate result of all this (and a really stupid local tech that wiped most of my computer.) All I want to know is how do you contact SOMEONE at Mozilla that could help me.

If there is no way to communicate with some ultimately responsibility entity then anyone who has an issue is really just hanging in the wind with NO RECOURSE!!!!! AT THE MINIMUM all users should have a way to identify LEGITIMATE techs -something I haven't found. It is also a bummer that many questions here go unanswered. I am turning completely against the idea of "user developed" applications due to this.

If that is not possible then I will have no choice but to start a VERY LARGE campaign to WARN everyone to STAY COMPLETELY AWAY from ANY and ALL software that doesn't some ultimate corporate responsibility. I don't care HOW HIGHLY Firefox is rated now
