this is really to report what occurred this morning.

since the update to v 17 Firefox would not run d/loaded the new version twice (uninstalling between) but to no avail - the program would not open although Task Manager shows the process running.

have re-installed v 15 so I have a browser.

lack of a way to report such problems is a weakness which needs addressing

Not using firefox anymore, here's why(Not really a question, more of an "I QUIT" rant).

So. I was a pretty loyal chrome user since it's Beta. Noticed that it used a lot of processes for each tab I had open.

I didn't like that.

So I installed Firefox.

Noticed that Firefox is very slow. I mean VERY SLOW. Youtube videos? 5+ mins to stream a 3 min video. If I am lucky.

Gmail? Last attempted login took 5 refreshes, and still took over 3 and a half mins before it finally let me in.

Tried these same things on Chrome. Got into Gmail in under 5 seconds. Youtube videos? Don't even need to let it stream ahead. Played the same video flawlessly.

Tried everything in the troubleshooting to make this slow issue go away. Don't like Safari, hate IE like it will give me the plague. Opera is... meh. Okay I guess. Marginally better than Firefox at this point. I'm sorry to say, I am going back to chrome. None of your solutions fixed the issues, or even offered marginal performance increases to warrant holding out hope that there may be something just around the corner to make this a great browser again.

So. With that said, Firefox, we were once good friends, but like a business investment, it's time to cut my losses and move on to bigger and better things.

Ciao.

Firefox 17 keeps locking up on websites. No longer showing http or https. It shows a fox icon in the the web browser.

My computer keeps locking up. Why isn't it showing Http or Https on the web browser? It shows a fox icon. I have been on IE and there is no problem at all.

I've noticed that my Firefox using really extended amounts of RAM (600 MB or so). I have tried everything what is suggested on Knowledge base, disabled plugins & addons, started in safe mode, etc etc, but problem still ocurs, even if I have opened only two tabs. But when I have closed gmail tab, Firefox's RAM usage jumped down to 100 MB. When I have opened it again, RAM usage will become something around 600 MB again, so it seems to that gmail is causing my problems.

Why gmail consuming so much RAM in my computer? Is there any way to get rid of it?

Firefox v. 13.0 was the last version that gave me good performance. I tried 13.0.1 but my speeds dropped substantially. I was able to go back to v 13.0 and resumed my normal speeds. I tried further updates but, since my speeds again dropped, I again went back to v. 13.0. Now, when I installed v. 17.0, not only has my speed dropped, v. 13.0 no longer works, either.

Using www.speedtest.net my ping went from 5 - 8 ms to 85 -135 ms! Right now I get a 113 ms ping using Firefox and a 6 ms ping using Opera. My speeds are showing up the same but the difference in ping times is indicative of the tremendous slowdown I've experienced by doing nothing more than updating to a new release.

I've tried all of the suggestions given to others who have experienced this frustrating slowdown but nothing worked. I finally wiped out everything I've accumulated over the many years I've happily used Firefox except my bookmarks and reinstalled v. 13.0, the last version that worked, but even that failed to solve my problem. What a pain in the butt! I completely removed v. 13.0, deleted all of the folders and installed v. 17.0.

I've run in safe mode, I ran the fresh install of v. 17.0 without installing any add ons or extra plugins. I deleted my profile. I started from zero. Nothing worked.

I can't use Firefox. It's turning my 20 Mbps internet connection into dial-up speeds. Please help!

I'm using an onload eventlistener to call a script which increases the value of a variable. I need to get the variable's value before I increase it. Safari and Chrome (Webkit) give the right result but Firefox always alerts "0"... To be clear: Firefox also alerts "done" which means it gets the job done but it does NOT alert the right value before I increase it!


This is my Script:

var obj = {

   build: function() {
       var progressCount = 0; 
       var otherFunction = function(number) {
               alert(number);
       } ;
       var finalFunction = function() {
               alert("done");
       } ;
       var progress = function() {
               alert(progressCount);  // very important line!
               progressCount++;
               otherFunction(progressCount);
               if (progressCount == ARRAY.length) {
               finalFunction();
               }
       };
       ARRAY=document.getElementsByClassName("picture");
       for (var i = 0; i < ARRAY.length; i++)
       ARRAY[i].addEventListener("load", progress);
   }

}

obj.build();


What else could I try? Thank you very much!

Please find below jsfiddle for reference

jsFiddle for Mozilla Firefox -- http://jsfiddle.net/ranu_mandan/EBmdf/

Javascript (FF)

var c=document.getElementById("myCanvas");
var ctx=c.getContext("2d");
ctx.font="30px Arial";

var counter = 0;
c.addEventListener('DOMMouseScroll',function(event){

    draw();

    return false;

}, false);

function draw(){   

   var j = ++counter;
   for(var i = 0; i < 10000; i++){
    ctx.clearRect(0, 0, c.width, c.height);
    ctx.fillText("Hello World " + j ,10,50);
   }

 }

jsFiddle for Google Chrome -- http://jsfiddle.net/ranu_mandan/mk5rZ/

Javascript (Chrome)

var c=document.getElementById("myCanvas");
var ctx=c.getContext("2d");
ctx.font="30px Arial";

var counter = 0;
c.addEventListener('mousewheel',function(event){

   draw();

   return false;

}, false);

function draw(){   

  var j = ++counter;
  for(var i = 0; i < 10000; i++){
   ctx.clearRect(0, 0, c.width, c.height);
   ctx.fillText("Hello World " + j ,10,50);
  }
}

HTML

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<span>Scroll on below canvas</span>
<br/>    
<canvas id="myCanvas" width="600" height="100" style="border:5px solid #d3d3d3;">
Your browser does not support the HTML5 canvas tag.</canvas>
</body>
</html>

Now try Scrolling fast using mouseWheel on canvas on above fiddles , you will find numbers are skipped in Firefox , whereas Google Chrome renders smoothly without skipping the numbers.

How to make rendering similar to Google Chrome in Firefox browser ?

I've posted about this in the past, and never got a solution. Before I begin, let me point out I've already tried - several times - to fix this issue using the various boilerplate steps: I've deleted and created new profiles, removed folders, removed and reinstalled java and flash, and even went in and deleted registry keys I felt safe in deleting. I've done all these things several times.

The quick explanation is, I cannot use anything past Firefox 3.6. Anything newer than that, and I run into a myriad of problems, which oddly enough always remain the same. Among them: Whenever I click a link to download a file, the browser freezes. Whenever I go to the Tools/Options/Applications menu tab, the browser freezes. I also can't get "Words With Friends" to work ... I just see the board, but none of the games I'm playing will load.

I don't think this is something in Firefox as much as it is something either in my registry, file associations, data execution prevention in windows, an issue with a windows service, or some other permissions-based setting that, for whatever reason, only allows me to do these things in Firefox 3.6 or older. Anything above that - from 4.0 on - and the same problems occur. And I've tried them all.

Surely this sounds familiar enough to someone who has encountered it before and knows that one stupid little setting or switch I can flip to proceed into the 21st Century and not have every website I visit tell me "Dude, get a new version of Firefox already."
