I have been having an issue with Firefox freezing "sporadically" on my PC. In a nutshell, Firefox freezes typically once per boot-up cycle. By freeze, I mean that my whole PC locks up and is unusable, no clicking is allowed for any task, but my mouse is free to scroll around. Once the computer unfreezes, typically under 1 minute later, whatever action I had taken will pop up (including but not limited to ctrl-alt-del). This freezing only occurs on certain websites, and only after boot-up. The frequent problem I have isolated is yahoo mail, where the browser becomes stuck on "read s.yimg.com".

As far as I know, this only occurs shortly after boot up. If I magically avoid culprit sites, the PC eventually reaches a state where I have yet to witness a freeze. So say I get lucky on a few websites and edit a word doc for an hour, when I eventually load yahoo mail, it may NOT freeze.

I am currently running Firefox version 43.01. I had been using 36.04 until I updated to 43.0, and the problem started occurring on 36.04. I ran Firefox via safe mode, and also manually disabled all add-ons, but the problem persisted.

Also gave google chrome a shot, and I did not come across this same issue.

Anybody see this before? Curious for any insight you are able to provide, and a possible solution. While it may seem like a stupid question (do stupid questions actually exist?), could this be a virus? My gut tells me no, but I am no computer specialist.

Thanks!

Hi there,

I have installed a British dictionary, as I don't use American spelling (I'm Australian).

I've changed the language to British in settings and deleted USA from the options. Every time I close the browser it changes back to the US dictionary and the spellcheck starts correcting me based on USA spelling. I right click a text box, click languages and it's set itself to English (USA).

Is there some way to delete the USA dictionary entirely? Why does it keep changing back to the default?? It's so frustrating!

I am using a Mac, latest OS, with the default Firefox theme.

Thanks in advance, Hayden

This one is really weird - the problems have developed over the last week or two. TB is sometimes unable to read emails, while at other times it succeeds. When it is unable to read emails, it can send them OK. Sometimes I can get it to work by re-starting TB, sometimes that doesn't work and I have to re-start Windows. Some days this problem exists, other days it all works fine. My ISP has checked my settings, and they're fine.

FF is generally working OK, but I'm having trouble with one particular website, and then only with the secure pages (https:) within it. I can access the first few pages OK, but after a while the site stops responding (at least that's what FF says). When FF is stuck like that, I can open another tab and access pages on other sites with no problem .

I would appreciate any suggestions.

When I click a web link from a email message (Thunderbird) or any other web link, , I get a wait circle from Win 7 for about 10 seconds but the page never loads in Firefox, but a firefox.exe process starts up. I can do this 10 times and the tab never loads the web page but I will get 10 Firefox process running. If I exit Firefox, all those 10 processes remain running and I need to stop them all before I can start up FIrefox again. I did startup Firefox in Safe mode and without my virus program running - no change. Extremely frustrating.

I use Thunderbird. I checked and Thunderbird is designated in my mailto action.

Today I clicked on the same email, clicked on the same link, and it opened in FireFox.

When I first got the email and it would not open in FireFox I right clicked on the link, clicked on "Copy Link Location" and pasted it to open the link.

Can you tell me what is going on?

This is not the first time this has occurred.

I downloaded today's update at the bequest of Mozilla. When I opened the program, I could not get past the master screen (I'm not sure what it's actually called.) Could not get to messages received or messages sent or contacts or any other category. Then I closed the program and could not even get back into the program. This same thing happened about a week ago when I was using Windows 10. I since went back to Windows 8.1 and Firefox was working perfectly -- until today's download update. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. Roger

When I send an email, I get a pop up that says "unable to save a copy to the sent mail box". How do I enable this feature?

This doesn't happen all the time. It seems to occur when I send an email from a webpage, not directly from my Thunderbird account.

Recently my technician switched me to Mozilla Firefox & Thunderbird. I am 88 and only have low vision with Macular Degeneration. To use the computer I have to use a text magnifier. The one I use is ZoomText from AiSquared in Manchester Center VT. Currently they do not support Mozilla even thoughI have repeatedly contacted them.

The problem is that when I scroll in any application the text breaks up and becomes unreadable which is annoying to say the least. Would you please contact them and see if you can resolve this problem. support@aisquared.cm.

I was switched from IE because of problems and would prefer no to go back to it.

I no longer have the time to constantly close down Firefox given the number of times it totally stops when browsing.

I am not sure whether this is because of gradually changes to the browser or because of the increase in the number of websites that are now media heavey.

In the past I could regularly check news sites and leave tabs open to be able to compare articles etc..

This has now become a daily ordeal. One newspaper web site I am forced to use chrome.

Worse still the bloated use of memory is compounded by the excesses of Thunderbird which now also hangs and sometimes stops all processes.

What has gone wrong?

I am still using the same computer system with Windows 7 professional and Office professional.

But over the past 4 years Firefox and Thunderbird performance has dropped.

Currently having only just restarted Firefox is it consuming 143,972K and Thunderbird 86,696K also just restarted.

By comparison Chrome is using 60,000K and Internet Explorer 12,372K, while Outlook is using 7,872 (ie a 12th of Thunderbird) and Eudora 5,356 (a 13th)

Have followed all the various options offered over the past year for solutions. Nothing seems to return Firefox to being the reliable, and for me preferrable, browser.
