I have the current Firefox version installed. Am using Win 7 Home Premium. This issue started several months ago after a Firefox update. Every time I open a "New Tab", I get this message on the screen, surrounded by a red box:

XML Parsing Error: undefined entity Location: about:newtab Line Number 139, Column 47: <button class="launchButton" id="settings">&abouthome.settingsButton.label;</button>


^

Haven't the vaguest idea what it means or how to get rid of it. Am going back to another support page that tells how to get pinned windows restored that used to show up every time I opened a new tab. Perhaps that will help? We shall see - wish me luck! Thanks to all the Volunteers on this site in advance if anyone has the cure that ails me!

Oh, and before posting this, I did install the Add-On called "Troubleshooter" Regards, Deb and Dakota

I used to be able to click on a Word document link and the document would open - now when I click on the link, I receive an error message when Word opens up saying:

Word experienced an error trying to open the file. Try these suggestions:

  • Check for file permissions for the document or drive.
  • Make sure there is sufficient free memory and disk space.
  • Open the file with the Text Recovery converter.

Nothing has changed in regard to web page where I am looking at the files from or on my computer, except that the version of Firefox has updated. I am now using FF version 32.

The files will open with IE, but not Firefox. I loathe the idea of having to use IE.

I have tried the different choices under Tools -> Options -> Applications for Word documents, and none made a difference.

I have two plugins for Microsoft Office 2010 and they are both set to 'Always Activate'.

Please help!

I installed the latest version of Firefox 32.03. at the weekend and since then I have experienced problems. Shockwave flash kept crashing and all FF browsing was slow. I also noticed that 'Restore last session' was not working (greyed out in history) although the tabs open at end of previous session were reopening mostly. I decided to reset Firefox as I had lost my pinned tabs and did not want to lose them once more after setting them up. Resetting did not improve things and the final straw came this evening when I tried to download a BBC iPlayer programme to view later. The application association had vanished and when I set it up again, Firefox went manic and started opening tab after tab and ignored all my attemps to stop it. When I eventually stopped it by Ctrl+Alt+Del, there was over 380 tabs to be closed.

I am really sorry I updated to the latest version as everything was going really well with my two year old laptop and I was very happy with Thunderbird and Firefox, using Google infrequently and not using Internet explorer at all. Please help me to return to my favourite browser. Thunderbird is working as terrifically as usual and I will be most reluctant to install a later version.

12.10 am I just had Adobe Flash Player crash so there is something going on.

Hi Everyone!

I am not sure if I am missing something or if other people are seeing the same problem.

The problem I am seeing is that Firefox does not seem to be automatically updating. I have checked the settings and the option is selected. It will sit on the version I installed no matter how long I wait. However, if I go to the About page for the browser then it instantly starts downloading the newest version and installs it.

This is not just on my PC either. I support a large number of family PCs and majority of them follow this same behavior.

Any insight into this would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I have this stupid new tab page that I can't figure out how to get rid of. I have my homepage set to facebook, I've checked my programs installed and there are no adwares or toolbars or anything. I've checked in the add-on menu and extensions and there is nothing unusual. I can't figure it out. It is called "sweet-page," and I'm sure others have had the issue. It seems to have hidden itself. I even tried the uninstall directions from THEIR page and it didn't work. I just tried to un and re-install Firefox, and it didn't fix it. Help please, it's not killing my computer or anything, just really annoying. Thanks in advance.

FF version always most recent.

For several months, file size of automatic backup .json files used to be about 1.930 kb on all machines that are connected to 1 sync account. I never deleted more than a dozen of short term bookmarks. Since last monday, file size of all of them decreased to about 700 kb.

Does that indicate loss or damage? If so, how to check and repair?

For several weeks Firefox crashes when I close it down for the day. Firefox error message box sends crash report. Today I got I think from Firefox: please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off". <configuration>

   <system.web>
       <customErrors mode="Off"/>
   </system.web>

</configuration> Then there's a second file it says to add. Umm, where/how? The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL. <configuration>

   <system.web>
       <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
   </system.web>

</configuration> Okay, but under ProgramFiles>Firefox there are several folders and none of them say "root" so where am I to create said file and how do I get it there? And then what? I sure don't want to crash Firefox any more than it does as it at least still works.

As the question explains, some of the icons for visited sites appear only as a dashed rectangle. There are several bookmarks that have been successfully imported from an html file and a few of them have no icon showing on the Firefox toolbar or bookmark list yet they did on the original browser where they wre imported from. Typically, the icons will "fill in" when each of the imported sites are visited some some do not regardless of how many times visited.

I have checked to make sure that the fonts and colors are being selected by the site/server so that is not the problem.

Although it is a somewhat cosmetic feature (navigation works fine, just no icons), the icons make site recognition much faster visually, making browser that much faster and easier on the eye.

Any help to resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated for a "second-time-around" Firefox user.

I have run several malware programs, disabled or removed all extensions and plugins but still cannot stop this hijacking. It started about two or three days ago. Also present in IE and Chrome but Firefox is my preferred and most used browser where it started. Help!! My computer is infected with something that I can find no solution for. I have put up with several invasive ads on my Firefox pages which I think you should give us a way to block, but this is the first time that my browser gets froxen.
