I recently had an update (or upgrade?) for FF 16. Today (and I believe the update was done a day or two ago?) my cache, cookies and history are not clearing when I close FF. Also, certain links are not working. Not links for full web pages but for site pop-ups (like the smilie window on a message board). They worked a few days but are not working today. I click the link and nothing happens. I noticed the problem with the cookies not clearing for a few weeks ago but it was only on one site not all sites which is what's happening now.

My apologies if that's a little confusing. Thanks!

Starting from about 2 weeks ago, Firefox has been crashing. The crashes is seemingly random, but normally happens when many pages/tabs are open. Also, all observed crashes happened in middle of some user operations. If I just leave it open(and loaded), it would never crash even after a long time.

Also, the crashes would still happen even after ALL extensions are disabled manually. However it doesn't seem to happen in Safe Mode.

After every crash, in the crash report dialog, the "Details" report would not respond. However I can open the reports using about:crashes.

Before the crash would happen, sometimes the following ill-behaviors could be observed:

  • Firefox fails to render CJK characters, displaying them as square boxes instead
  • CJK IME(Namely Google Pinyin, an IME for Simplified Chinese) could no longer be activated in Firefox, neither on a webpage element nor on UIs of Firefox itself(i.e. address bar or search bar)

The following has been tried but no luck:

  • Disable ALL extensions manually
  • Start a new profile
  • Reset Firefox
  • Uninstall/Reinstall Firefox
  • Switch from FX 14 to 15, then to 16 beta

I don't know what happened, all that happened was I was away from my keyboard at the time. I left firefox on and randomly popped up, I could not close firefox! I then had to shut the process and every time last night and this morning, he/it/she was there! I resorted to using an alternate browser but it is now fixed. I would like to know how and why this happened! EDIT : He was using his Webcam although my webcam was deactivated to fix a problem, I think he was trying to hack that too!

I have FF, Win 7 Ultra, 32-bit, HP a465c. I bookmarked a pronouncing dictionary that won't pronounce! Yikes! When I try to get an unusual word pronounced, I am prompted to download Apple's plug-in. I have no Apple products and don't want any. When I try to download Quick Time, it always fails. Then I'm prompted to manually install it. I don't know how to do this. What does FF have that will pronounce desired words readily? Methinks that that would be a commonplace, built-in FF feature.

Danke.

The close tab icon ("x" box) does not appear on the tabs. Safemode and no add-ons, new window with only 2 tabs, still the same behavior. Why? How to fix?

It would seem the key is explained by the browser.tabs.closeButtons setting ( http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.tabs.closeButtons ). Mine is set to 5. If I set it back to the default of 1, then I get the close buttons ("x") showing up on the tabs again (or on the active tab only, if there are several). But 5 is not a valid value according the description. I'm sure that *I* did not change it to 5. So anyway, I changed it in safe mode back to the default of 1, and the close icons appeared immediately. Yeah! So then restarted firefox to have the add-ons working again. This caused it to be be automatically changed to 5 again. Grrrr!

Is there no way to trouble-shoot which add-on is screwing with the setting? I mean, other than turning them off one by one and restarting firefox each time? That could take all day.

Problem 1: All update (beta, RC) fails in my computer. After download, when I click in apply button, Firefox closes and a process "firefox.exe"starts with (~2.800 kB) and nothing happens. Every time and every versions in my 2 computers (Vista and Seven). It occurs since ~10 version (9, 10, 11... i don't remember.

When I download the exe from Mozilla, the update works.

Problem 2: Since the ~10 version or flash version, mostly embedded youtube videos doesn't load in firefox (in all pcs again). In youtube site it works, but embedded only shows a black square. In Google Reader it occurs all the time.

My day started with a New Browser format (http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/central/) From there my Download Helper Icon disappeared...even though at You Tube the Icon does appear to & seems to work. Next I went to (http://www.downloadhelper.net/install.php) but that was No Help...problem only got worse. Maybe If I went to Another Computer and found an OLD Version (copy & paste) I could get the Icon back. Why does this have to be so hard since I'm at Mozilla Support? After looking for my old version in My Files and trying to find my old DH it had been replaced with a tryout version. Nothing worked better than the old version...prove me wrong... give me Video Download Helper v. 4.9.10.
