hi about 2 days ago ff stopped working. i type an address into the usual window like i've done a million times, hit enter, and nothing happens. i click on a bookmark, the url shows up in the address window, but nothing happens. there are maybe 3 bookmarks that still work, and all the rest are duds. auto-complete still works, but firefox refuses to take to the address. i get a lot of "flash crashes" (thanks, adobe) so i recently updated flash, and that started the problem. this is why i distrust updates. (for the record, i keep current with firefox updates, even though it is still bloatware that uses 2 GB just to run 3 windows. anyway, any help you could offer would be most... helpful! (not sure why my exclamation points are printing as open-brackets, but hey, whatever, that's the internet) thanks, tim

I depend on Group Tabs and if/when FireFox crashes sometimes sessionstore.js gets corrupted. I regularly archive copies of that file so I can recover. In one of the latest versions (after 11/8/2014) it appears that you have either changed the method or hidden sessionstore.js somewhere other than on my C:/ drive. it is no longer "findable" with "show hidden files" turned on

1. Will you tell me/us where it is now located or 2. Tell me/us how to recover our sessions

I read the previous thread about this problem under FF 32 but wasn't able to respond there, so I'm starting a new thread.

I have had this problem for some time, back under FF 32. I even downloaded and reinstalled FF and when that didn't work, did the reset procedure. The update to 33.1.1 hasn't helped.

I'm running OS X 10.6.8 and Apple Mail v. 4.6. I keep FF open on my desktop after starting it. Usually it works OK when first started but then stops opening links or becomes erratic, sometimes opening them and sometimes not.

Any help/suggestions/news about this issue will be much appreciated.

When I open websites all text appears as little square boxes. I un-installed Firefox 33.1 and restarted my laptop. I re-installed Firefox and again re-started my laptop. The issue is the same. I read an article that stated to adjust the zoom to see if the font size would rectify the situation. That did not work for me. Another article said to be sure that each website can select its' own fonts/sizes. That was all set also.

When I'm using Google+ Hangouts, after a while the window starts glitching out. When I mouse over anything clickable the chat scrolls up by itself, the chat box moves halfway up the window and the video/webcam area goes half black/white then it all goes back to normal a split second later. This keeps happening until I refresh, but then it starts happening again. http://i7.minus.com/iFkcflNZvwmx5.png That's a screenshot of how it looks.

Nothing I've tried has solved it. I've reset firefox, re-installed, created new profiles, restarted my computer, all my drivers are up to date, my memory and cpu usage is minimal. Everything else works fine it's just this that doesn't.

Browser freezes up periodically and gives a (not responding) error. If I force close the program I get a "Firefox has stopped working" popup, and then a second popup that says "Plugin Container for firefox has stopped working". It happens constantly, whether I have 1 tab open or 10. It seems to especially happen if I load up a Youtube or Imgur page. Is there something to be done about this?

This question was addressed earlier in the year here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1012101?esab=a&s=&r=0&as=s

but the problem has returned with a vengeance, for no reason that I can figure out. Below are my 5 most recent crash reports- it's worth noting that there are FAR less crash reports than incidents of crashing. This is happening multiple times per day, every day.

Ok, so whilst using Firefox, lately adobe flash player has been crashing upon opening a YouTube video. This could be when i click a video and the new page opens and freezes, or when I actually get to the video but it then crashes. Alongside this, sometimes the videos are delayed to start, as in the video starts bufferng but doesn't actually start playing until later.

I've tried many proposed solutions but none seem to have worked

(Tried: New profile Clean Install Clear cache,cookies, etc.. Disable plugins Addons (video without flash, etc...) Protected mode (for FF and Flash) Virus scans (had nothing bad that was scanned) Disable/ Enable hardware acceleration Updating Flash (i'm using the latest version... 15.0.0.233)

Alongside this, i've tried using Chrome which also gives similar results, crash, hanging or the video delay at the start.

What could be wrong?


Heres a crash report i submitted (the latest one)

After the second-to-last update, I started noticing an increase in browser crashes. The issue is always that the Plugin-Container has stopped working. I understand that the plugin container's function is to prevent such problems, but it does not appear to be working. I have the latest version of Firefox, updates, etc, but that doesn't seem to be helping. Crash reports have been sent to Mozilla, but the problem is ongoing. I use my browser heavily in both standard and incognito mode for business. I've used Firefox for a long time, but if I keep losing information mid-process, I'm going to have to consider other options. If anyone has any experience with the problem or suggestions on a possible solution, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Nomenica

I encountered the same problem at the previous version: it was slow to load up, unresponsive when it actually opened and would crash often - shockwave plugin crash or some other sort of crash.

I don't want to do that again - someone really needs to fix this.
