When viewing the BBC News website, videos will not play. Something to do with Adobe Flash player. Then another message says that I am using an old version of Firefox. I can download the latest version of Firefox but I can't seem to install it. The Mozilla support site talks about opening a Terminal. How do I do that?

This is a continuation of the problem report (with the exact same question) that had no solutions and was recently closed. I have no idea why an active problem report was closed. This is actually the THIRD instance of this problem report.

I had another4 occurrence a few minutes ago. I installed three MS Windows 7 patches, and a reboot was required. After the reboot, Firefox started with only 10 windows - my main window was missing. I ran my script to archive and process the three files - previous.js, recovery.bat, and recovery.js . Then I exited Firefox and re-started it. On restart, all 11 windows were present. I still do not have an answer to these questions :

1) WHY does this occur?

2) When it does occur, WHAT DIAGNOSTICS can I run to help debug this problem? This is clearly a bug in Firefox, and I want it fixed. I assume that I am the only one who is experiencing this problem, and I am willing to do almost anything to help debug this problem when it next occurs.

For those who have not read the other two problem threads - I am always running the latest non-beta Firefox, and I always run with add-ons disabled. This is a Windows 7 Professional 32-bit system.

Purchased a new Dell - Inspiron 17 5000 Series Model 5759. Windows 10 x64 bit system. When using Mozilla FIrefox, latest version, 44.0.2, I get the following message "Display Driver Intel HD Graphics Drivers for Windows 8(R) stopped responding and successfully recovered". Firefox becomes blank for a few seconds and then resumes. This happens every 2-3 days, not every day. All drivers updated as well as updating all Windows updates.

To isolate the problem, I started using Chrome. The message does not appear when using Google Chrome browser.

I would like to determine the cause so I can use Firefox as that is my browser of choice. Any ideas here? This is a fully updated system, so what's the problem?

Since the only other thread about this was closed by the powers that be, I will open it for Version 44. What happened to the "Ask me every time" option for cookies. It is the major reason that I have been using Firefox for many years. All there is now really is to allow cookies Always or Never. I never had a problem until V44 when I noticed I was no longer being asked the question to allow the setting of a cookie by new websites. I looked at the reasons given for the removal and it is bogus. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=469260 The only one who hit the nail on the head was: Charles Evans 2012-03-27 17:25:41 PDT

Someone who does not want to be bombarded by these questions should simply turn it OFF. Those who had it turned ON (like me and countless other loyal Firefox users), have no problem with it. Now that it has been removed, the question becomes, is there a way to get it back through an easy workaround? And PLEASE, don't write this issue off because it is "a developer issue" as I read in the previous thread about this disaster. It is not. It is a privacy issue and my bet is that ALL who selected this option, want it back!

Dear Sir/Ma'am

Do you have other versions of Mozilla Firefox which has less options/functions e.g. no print, no search bar in the right side(because i can use the main bar to search), etc. because I don't need those anyway and also my laptop is so slow when using it(with only ad-block addon and clean install, and also new laptop).


edit: removed large space before the Do as it was causing a horizontal scrollbar.

I currently have Firefox 44.0.2. I don't want to update yet, because I use the Tab Groups feature, which will be discontinued if I update. Just a moment ago, whilst I was away form my desk, Firefox began to update automatically, without my permission! I interrupted the file download, and rebooted the computer, but it still says that it will update when Friefox is restarted. How can I stop Firefox from updating?

My P/C started automatically in safe mode a few days ago. I took it to my repair guy & he fixed it. When he tried to open Firefox, error message as stated above was displayed. Since then, Browser does not seem to work as well as before. I believe all he did was to download a fresh copy. My question - should I try a Refresh of Firefox to remedy the problem or can you suggest anything else to try first?
