YouTube plays the first video fine, but when I select any other video from the browser window I get multiple Firefox crash alert windows. Nothing happens when I click the "Close the Program" option in the Crash Alert. Firefox remains open and eventually after a slight delay, the video selected will play, but the crash alert keeps popping up. -Began yesterday (3/11/19), no known changes to browser or system -Refreshed Firefox (did not help) -Attempted in Safe Mode (did not help) Thanks for any recommendations.

I am running Firefox on Linux Mint 13 Maya. For some reason many of the buttons in Firefox (not on webpages but in FireFox itself) do not respond to mouse clicks. I have tried Safemode, refresh/restore and uninstall/reboot/reinstall. Still the same problem. I have a hard time accessing settings because the menu button is one of those that "depresses" but does not respond to any mouse clicks. Also I can not activate or deactivate plugins because of the same problem.

Every now and then (maybe once a week on average), Firefox suddenly freezes, and checking 'top' shows that the plugin-container is using 90%+ of both CPU and RAM (I have 12 GB of RAM). So I kill firefox, and when I restart, it is running as normal again.

For extensions, I only have LeechBlock (and Ubuntu Modifications). For plugins I have Flash, Java, OpenH264 Video Codec, and iTunes application detector (apparently). Flash and Java are both up-to-date.


Since the problem happens somewhat rarely, I haven't been able to reproduce it or track down any kind of cause, but I thought it merited reporting anyway; a web search didn't seem to show anyone else reporting the same problem.

If I click on a blank field no cursor appears. If I click on another window eg. a safari window and then come back to firefox, the cursor is now in the field I clicked on. Then I type in e.g. a dollar amount, but no numbers appear then I go to safari and comeback to firefox and the numbers are there. Then I try to scroll down using my trackpad and nothing moves then go to safari and come back and the screen has scrolled. The same happens if I go to another window e.g. open office and then return. This began after installing el capitan. At first I may have had a lack of RAM, but I have taken care of this. Ideas? Is there any way to reinstall Firefox completely, preferably without losing my bookmarks to see if this helps? I'm on version 43.0.2.

I am getting a solid red screen with screeching sound saying a web site is trying to do something to my computer and that it's a FIREFOX CRITICAL ERROR and I need to call help desk. The only way I have found to close the window is to open Task Manager and close Firefox. Sometimes after rebooting the page will go away for a period of time but it always comes back. HELP! How do I get rid of this monster? The Windows 10 Virus scanner won't clear it and neither will Malwarebytes malware scanner.

Thank you, Jake

Eventually, 3 tabs or more tabs, the whole thing comes to a halt and freezes and I have to restart. I've cleared my history. Doesn't help. I don't know what to do. Thanks for any help.

It seems that recently Firefox (perhaps the pop-up notifications) are freezing my Windows 7 machine. I have used Firefox for years without this problem. During the past weeks I notice that system freezes seem to happen when a Firefox pop-up notification appears at the lower right of the screen (e.g. Firefox 38.0.5 is available ...). The mouse will continue to move the cursor on the screen for a few seconds, then that freezes to. I get no response from the keyboard, even CTRL-ALT-DEL and power button fail to reboot the machine; I must remove and reattach the power cord.

Hoping that Mozilla had fixed the problem I updated today to Firefox 39.0, but when a Firefox browser plugin presented a notification in the lower right of the screen the system froze again. I do not have this freeze problem when Mozilla Thunderbird presents a notification in the lower right of the screen (e.g. XXXXXX received 6 new messages).

If I am working online and leave for a few hours and then come back and go to open a new tab or even reload an existing tab or go to a new website using an already open tab, the only thing I get is the "spinning circle of death." I then must exit out of FF. Then when I go to reopen FF I get a window that says FF is still open, even though it is not and do I want to shut it down, so I click yes. Then I am able to reopen FF, but always get a message that says my user profile cannot be loaded properly, so I have click on that and reopen a second time. Then it finally opens and I am able to work fairly well until the same problem happens again.

I am really not sure what changed, but I never had this problem, I could leave FF open for days and come back and then open a new tab just fine and begin working again.

My PC runs fine and no issues, Recently upgraded to Widows 10 - no issues. Suddenly (and quite weirdly) I have this fault. I needed to activate new Reason software on Propellerheads.se site. The site loaded and I saw the image for about 2 secs and then the screen went black. The music I was paying continued (so I knew Windows was still running) but the PC was unresponsive - Alt.Tab, Start, Ctrl/Alt/Delete non of these worked. The Sleep button worked but when I woke Windows the screen remained black. Only recourse was a hard reset. So I tried to access Propellerheads.se with Microsoft Edge - it worked fine. So I uninstalled Firefox, made Edge default client and did the activation. Then reinstalled Firefox but still the same problem. I have reset default user agent, deleted all history/cookies etc, refreshed Firefox, run in safe mode, deactivated plugins. Still Propellerheads.se will not load successfully. I don't want to run Edge - my preference is Firefox - BUT!!!

Windows 10 and Firefox were running well on my (old) windows 10 Compaq pc. After uninstalling eset nod32 and installing Sophos it ceases to really start up. In task manager I see Firefox somewhere down below, but it does not complete the startup so I do not see the browser opening. Killing the Firefox instance, reinstalling and restarting it without any add-ons (they were https everywhere, bluehell firewall, CSfire, Click&clean , Privacy Badger) does not do the trick  :-(

Can you help (other than unistalling sophos...) ?
