Hi All,

Recently I noticed that downloading files using file manager is stopping at random times giving an error that hard drive can't keep up with the incoming data. I checked the Task Manager and noticed high I/O read bytes for FF. I was monitoring this for some time. After initial opening the amount of read data increased to 200MB within 5 seconds. Then when I was using the FF it increased to 1GB. On one occasion it reached 16BG within 4 minutes. This is causing my disk to slow down. The amount of data read I think depends on how many tabs I have open and how intensively I'm using FF.

Can someone help me to identify what is causing this?

Latest version of FF is used Add-ons and plug ins up-to-date Windows 10 x64

Thanks

BUG in amazon "Was this review helpful to you" (using latest firefox): press yes or no and you are put back to page 1 of reviews, thus losing your place!

Amazon: This discourages all feedback and needs to be fixed!

I wasn't able to replicate the issue on my side. Was this happening on a specific product? If so, can you provide a link to that particular item(s) so we can investigate?

Please cancel my bug report as not reproducible (I would have done so but I had no idea how to access my report after I sent it).

It happened on two separate occasions today (for the very same page) and on each occasion I patiently kept trying to vote a bunch of times on different posts on different pages of the reviews, but then on restarting firefox each time the bug disappeared (update: not really sure it disappeared -- I could have just gotten tired of replicating it). It must be some intermittent problem with firefox (they are always updating the browser and recently a big UI change occurred) -- sorry I blamed amazon. I have never seen that happen before. I was looking at the amazon Mio FUSE product page and clicking yes or no for helpful reviews. Each time I did that it failed to register my vote and put me back at the top of page 1 of the reviews (there are many pages of review for that miserable device). I was logged into amazon properly.

If it happens again and doesn't go away after restarting firefox (and after reboot, etc persistent problem) then I'll let you and firefox know.

Sorry to have wasted time with this -- next time I'll make sure it is completely reproducible before reporting an issue.

Wow! I take it back that this is unreproducible.

I just tried it again and again and again with the same bizarre result as originally reported (tried voting No or Yes on different reviews on page 3 of reviews for https://www.amazon.com/Mio-Training-Activity-Tracker-Crimson/product-reviews/B00MYK59TQ/?ie=UTF8&pageNumber=3&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending#

The same thing happens whether I have Adblock Plus enabled or disabled.

I don't see how this could be a problem with just one amazon product's pages. But if not, lots of folks would be reporting this. My firefox on Windows 7 version is 41.0.1 . Perhaps it is a cache issue with firefox??

I just restarted firefox and the problem still reproduces! I am logged into firefox and vote Yes or No on page 3 (undoubtedly this affects all pages) of the reviews for this product and the vote does not record and I am put back at the top of page 1 of the reviews.

I did not explicitly clear the cache or reboot though (I've taken enough time with this issue today).

Update: next day -- this problem reproduces for me on _all_ amazon pages when I vote for a review which is on a page beyond page 1. Still a problem after reboot. I'll just stop voting on reviews, which is a fine workaround.

Conclusion: It must be something unique to my machine, since other folks don't see this issue.

FWIW...also have Win7, FF 41.0.1 and ABP enabled. Was able to vote on the reviews of the page you linked with no issues.

OK, Got it!

I cleared the firefox cache using the free CCleaner. Problem gone!

So it is a cache issue that causes this strange amazon problem using the latest firefox. And that explains why other folks don't see it who don't have their firefox cache already full.

It is clearly a bug, but I believe more likely with firefox and not amazon. Hopefully the next firefox versions will fix it.

The issue title which I can't seem to edit should specify the condition "when the firefox cache is full".

After years of using Firefox, it now crashes on my iMac (OS 10.10.5) - even in safe mode. I've tried starting my desktop in safe mode too and nothing works. I've downloaded a new copy of Firefox several times and each time I get the message "Firefox crashes when opening. " When I try opening Firefox in safe mode, it starts for a few seconds but then I get that darned spinning wheel again, and again, etc. So I have to "force quit" Firefox and try again. Today is the first time I've had such difficulties. I haven't installed any new software or made any other changes that would affect Firefox. Could it be that my Xmarks that stores my Firefox ookmarks is a problem? Or is there some website among my 'favorites' that could be crashing Firefox? Any help will be appreciated.

These appear to be related to a couple of different javascript errors, but my "expertise" goes little further than that. This problem DOES seem to occur more often when there is video on a (even unloaded) tab, but can happen when looking at any page with any type of content, or while not looking at the browser at all (inactive window). I have also recently been getting "This browser does not support video playback" on Twitter, but I assume that is related to the change from anigifs to HTML5. I have tried refreshing Firefox, as well as completely restarting from a fresh install. My video drivers are up to date, moreso than my on-board Intel hardware. Hardware issues MIGHT be a possibility, so if anyone sees evidence of such a problem from the dumps, please advise me of it so I can close in on the root of the matter.

While trying to enter this info and search for answers, I also had these crashes pop up: 73e8fb64-d0f9-4be2-9c5f-310c3313a6e9 10/4/2015 6:03 PM 21cb12f7-f658-4976-9baf-3fe5bcd58e78 10/4/2015 6:03 PM bp-a83a747f-45e8-4c93-a3b8-af4da2151005 10/4/2015 6:00 PM bp-2f3617c3-159a-4d24-9a8d-bff172151005 10/4/2015 6:00 PM

I am a medical insurance biller. I downloaded Windows 8, and Mozilla Firefox so that I could use United Healthcare Authorizations because they stopped allowing use on Google Chrome. I tried to get on the site, and the message I received was:

"An error occurred during a connection to saml2.radiologynotifications.com. SSL received a weak ephemeral Diffie-Hellman key in Server Key Exchange handshake message. (Error code: ssl_error_weak_server_ephemeral_dh_key)

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."  

When I looked this up, it said that your site said this was a malicious site and blocked it. This is a secure site. And I need this site for my work. I have been doing this for 15 years, and If I cannot use this I will be forced to use another browser.

Can you please help me?
