I've said it all in my question - I click on a link in an email, and all that Firefox loads is my homepage. I have tried setting it as my default browser (already was), made sure Safari had it set as default as well. This happened right after your last update.

Despite choosing English as a language I keep getting the Danish language displayed on several of the Mozilla websites. The most intrusive and hindering case is when I try to set up a Firefox account with about:accounts following this guide https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-update-to-the-new-firefox-sync. I click get started which consequently redirects me to a Danish registration form.

My skills in Danish are currently not sufficient enough that I feel comfortable registering for anything without being 100% sure of the content. Is there anyway to ensure that content remains in English.


I realize that about:accounts must be an internal configuration site, meaning that a proxy most likely wouldn't solve my problem. Is there anything I can change in about:config?

I recently updated Firefox from v29.0.1 to v30.0. Each time I exit the program, the following dialogue box is displayed after the Firefox window has closed:


Firefox has stopped working

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.

[ Close the program ]


When I reinstalled v29.0.1 the problem stopped.

Until v30.0 all Firefox updates have worked with little or no problems.

Anyone else having this issue?

after updating to firefox 29 and then 29.0.1, the cpu usage that firefox are using are insane,

it ranges between 50%-100% cpu usage.

and it happens even on normal non flash tab,

besides even if the site is using flash, i am using flash block and adblock plus,

so anykind of flash material wont play or uses cpu.

please fix this ASAP, because firefox has now gone from useable to resource hog,

oh and i don't like the new look, because firefox has become more similar to chrome on User interface,

and i don't use chrome, because i don't like the UI, and now firefox tried to be chrome twin ?

i think that's all, thanks in advance.

edit : fixed some typo

I've done -both- selecting & blocking the domain name of Google for prefs, etc from it's website AND using the Firefox security options page and typing in Google's domain name then selecting it to remove its cookies. But every time I check the "Show Cookies" tab, google is STILL there in the cookie list even after I've done all this stuff. What must I do, what secret domain name must I type to ensure Google doesn't track me?

I'm already using DuckDuckGo as my sole search engine so there is NO reason why google should be able to attach cookies to me as I am NOT USING GOOGLE. Please help.

After trying out the "pin tabs" option, the icon associated with that web site disappeared. I unpinned both sites, yet (even after reloading the tabs) I cannot get the icons to show on the tab.

I have had this happen before, even without pinning tabs: certain icons no longer show up on my tabs. It is becoming very difficult to locate the tabs I want now. I ended up having to remove FF completely, then reinstall it - NOTHING else worked. This is not an acceptable option.

Please help me before I decide to abandon Mozilla products forever!

With the change in recent email format, my ability to printout the email has disappeared. No problems before this rcent change. The 2 options available: the "File" option on the menu at top left of page, and the 3 horizontal bars indicating "menu" on the top right of page -- BOTH print out the whole page with the email itself truncated.

Another irritating issue is my inability to find the email address of the sender. This has got to be easy to find, BUT I CAN'T find it!!

Shockwave Flash 13.0.0.214, Shockwave for Director 12.1.0.150 and Shockwave for Director 12.0.9.149 are all installed and activated on my computer. Firefox is so slow and I am wondering if having all of these plug-ins activated is the problem. I have repeatedly changed the 'always activate' option to 'never activate' on the Shockwave for Director 12.0.9.149 version but when I do, then leave and return, I find that the Shockwave for Director 12.1.0.150 has been changed to 'never activate' also, or, I find that the Shockwave for Director 12.0.9.149 has been changed back to 'always activate'. My computer knowledge is very limited so I am reluctant to make changes without direction. I have tried other troubleshooting options for slowness but nothing is fixing the problem. I will appreciate any help you may provide.
