Firefox (Version 29.0) keeps crashing on me several times per day. I have done the following to try and fix it but it still crashes. I was better off on the Aurora it seems.
Add-Ons: I tried disabling them but Firefox still crashed. I only have 2 extensions installed.
Plugins: I have checked all my plugins and it says that Adobe Acrobat (Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 10.1.9) is vulnerable but when I go to update it, Adobe tells me that I already have the latest update installed. The same thing for Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.550.14 & Java(TM) Platform SE 7 U55. I go to update them and Java tells me I am already up to date.
Reinstall & Safe Mode: I have completely uninstalled then re-installed Firefox along with trying Firefox in Safe Mode. It still crashes.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanyone have any idea why this keeps happening?

Immediately after automatically updated to Firefox 29.0 every single time I click a link to download any file, Firefox crashes. It also crashes when using cPanel (cPanel sometimes opens windows in a frame, or at least that's how in appears). Please see the most recent crash report below:
I tried the following, which did not help:
- Reset the profile
- Turn off hardware acceleration
- Remove and download list (downloads sqlite)
I sure would appreciate any help.

In the new sync feature I can select passwords to be synced but then I need to disable my master password.
How exactly are my passwords stored and encrypted when I sync them? I want to be in control of the encryption key that encrypts my passwords. I don't feel that the security solution for storing my passwords in the sync solution has been adequately explained to me.
I'm considering getting lastpass instead.

I get a lot of untrusted connection messages on my work PC (behind firewall) and they don't always give the option of bypassing (the I know the risks option).

Since upgrading to FF29 I get a lot of untrusted connection errors on my work PC which is behind a firewall. These error messages sometimes show the technical details (e.g. plus.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.) but there is no "I know the risks" option provided to bypass and add an exception. I've seen the response about framed windows, but for sites like plus.google.com there isn't a framed window; right clicking doesn't give a "This Frame" menu item. I've deleted the cert8.db file as well, and that didn't resolve the issue.
I can't access much of google. I can't play YouTube HTML5 videos, though I was able to work through the HTML source to at least get the CSS file to load as even that was failing initially. I cannot load the accuweather site, though that doesn't seem to use https and so may be unrelated. I had no problems with any of these sites before upgrading to 29.

I often get fed up with firefox, the only reason I stay with it is because of the 3rd party plugins, but this is a step too far.
I am so seriously pissed off with Mozilla Firefox, not just because of the new design but the complete lack of respect for your users.
I got a message saying that there was an important security update, it did NOT NOT NOT warn me that it intended to install a completely redesigned application.
Have you guys heard of change control management?
I am in the middle of working and I spend 15 hours a day online, now i have to figure out this AWFUL user interface.
I guess this is what you get when you have a bunch of amateurs developing software.
So what was it, did not one person in Mozilla figure NOT out that you need to tell users that an upgrade includes a serious change in UI or worse still did you know and think FFF..orget them we will just do it and tell them it is a security update.
Rather than creating this terrible user interface you should have focused on the biggest problem with Firefox MEMORY and CPU usage with the ability of users to figure out which tab is using memory or CPU,
If I had wanted a Google Chrome clone I would have installed Google Chrome, but I hate the Chrome interface. Do you not know that Google are the worst company in the world at designing a UI, their email is rubbish, the new adwords Keyword Planner should be used in schools and colleges as a "how NOT to design software"
What pisses me off is that you have the arrogance to think that you can just bulldoze over your userbase. If I were local I would come to your office ask which bright spark was in charge of this and punch them in the face.
I have seen others ask how to roll back and again in your ignorance you make pathetic excuses and lock the question, as you did with the guy here:
well if you do that with me I will raise this on every blog related to Firefox. I wonder if there is any interest in creating a fork in the development?
I do not want to have to install an old version, I have a lot invested in my Firefox user interface which has been completely screwed up by this update. In addition to this I can't move the address bar and put it next to the menu and I can't move the tabs below the menus and toolbars.
You have also screwed up my colorful tabs which I need because of sight issues.
THIS IS MY DESKTOP do not DICTATE how I layout my screen!!
To call you complete F'ing Morons would not be enough!
Now if I roll back I am going to be facing nagware and security risks.
In future can you PLEASE respect your users by doing the following:
1. Do NOT install UI changes without informing the user and giving them a choice 2. ALWAYS include a feature to stick with the old UI 3. Allow users to stick with the old UI and still get REAL security updates.
I am so angry with you right now!

FF is tring to restore session when starting. There is usually not enough time to do anything before it crashes again.
If I'm given a few seconds extra I might be able to load another page but it will then crash just the same.
I have succesfully opened FF in safe mode (I'm writing this from safe mode) but I don't know what the next step should be.
In my case I suspect two possible culprits:
1. FF OWN RESTORE SESSION. "Show my windows and tabs from last time". This have been put in the "Show my homepage" option by Safe Mode I assume, and I will let it stay there.
2. TAB MIX PLUS. I'm planning to delete this add-on as it has it's own restore manager that might have some broken start-up file or something.
What I want to know is this: After deleting TAB MIX PLUS should I close FF and restart it? And should I restart in safe mode again or a normal start?
I have a couple of other profiles that seems to work OK so I'm pretty sure this is the problem and nothing else outside the FF domain.

Moderators, please read first before closing/removing this topic right away?
To those wanting to react here on this topic: please, also read ;)
Since my original posting https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/997009 was closed because one of the moderators felt it was going off-topic (although it was red a lot and had 131 "have-this-problem" in just a few days), here a kind of re-opening but on-topic.
Why? Because I feel we have the right to express our feelings on this major change. And publicly there is actually only this forum where that can be done on the Mozilla.org domain.
Sure, the change is there and we have to live with it (if we choose to). But that doesn't mean we can not have our voice here because after many, many years of supporting FF with our use, we suddenly are facing a layout we were always running away from.
So yes, that can cause ranting and so on (within the forum rules of course) because people feel strongly about there beloved browser.
(edit rules link note the whole topic is ordinarily outside the scope of the forum ... Posts in the Mozilla support forum must be either questions about the use of Firefox, ... Users who post about things other than Mozilla support will be directed to an alternative discussion place .... . ~J99)
Plus this way you can centralize all the negatives here instead of a lot of separate postings about the same subject ;)
To the people reacting here in this topic: there is only 1 real way to let Mozilla itself know how you feel on the new lay out and that is not through this forum. The way is to go to https://input.mozilla.org/feedback/ and let it know there.
You need to use a supported Firefox to post Feedback so that will soon not be possible from Fx28 2nd edit. I was wrong feedback works with any version of Fiefpx now~J99
And I think when that is done in normal words (so no f*ck you rants and so on) and suggestions, then maybe, just maybe, it has some effect.
Also, there is an Mozilla support page with info on how to get the "old look" back, see How to make the new Firefox look like the old FirefoxBut it will only partly restore the old look, certain FF29 things can not be changed.
And yes, I myself am back to Firefox 28 which is not supported or suggested by Mozilla because it has things (bugs and security) that are not fixed in it. (Edit Please use Official downloads if you must downgrade links in Install an older version of Firefox and the growing list of exploits you will open yourself up to is listed here: https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox.html ~J99)
I am not suggesting or advertising to others to do the same. It is a risk I am willing to take and only say it is an option.
edit My reason to go back to FF 28 is because that version still has the intuitive feel and look Firefox one was praised for. With a logical lay out and a good way to simply customize it (also in about:config).
For those who say/think "Come one man, stop whining! Grow up and just accept that Firefox has to go with its time!", to them I say: nope ;)

i'm having problems again with firefox on facebook games and simple mail sites. i've reset firefox, the issues still present, i've removed and reinstalled firefox, the issue persists. the other days i read something about this issue would stop if i downgrade to an earlier version. can anyone support this advice? is there a way to upload a troubleshooting report without installing the applet? thanks.

Running FF 29...
Whenever I try to print to Nitro PDF, FF hangs...I can't change the file name in the "Save As" box and I end up having to exit out using the X in the upper right hand corner of the window...
I KNOW this is an issue with FF due to the fact I have uninstalled/reinstalled both FF and Nitro...and still the same issue...additionally, I do not have this problem in IE or Opera...
I am finding more and more reasons to move away from FF...and this is just another notch in the negative column...
I see that others seem to be having problems printing to PDFs, so is there a fix in the works?...
I saw in another post that the poster was asked if they reset the printer in the "about" options...Why should we have to do this?...We EXPECT the browser to continue to work from one version to the next...
The only thing really keeping me on FF at this point is the speeddial option, which does not have a compatible add-on for Opera/IE/Chrome, that functions like the one for FF (dial groups)...but if I need to switch, I will do so...

I created an account for the new firefox on my laptop to sync my bookmarks. However, I can't retrieve them when I log into the account on my desktop. Nothing changed after login.
All the newest bookmarks was on my laptop but my laptop has been formatted due to some serious problem. How could I retrieve my bookmarks from firefox sync?

I Just got a new Dell XPS Dimension PC w/Win 8.1. It didn't have Firefox, so I downloaded it (version 29.0.1).
Nearly every time I try to attach a document, e.g., a photo, or other file, Firefox crashes. The crash occurs when I double-click on the directory and/or folder that has the document I want to attach. I have submitted over half a dozen crash reports the last few days.
Instead of double-clicking, I tried simply clicking once on the OPEN button that appears when I ask to attach a document. This reduced the frequency of crashes, but, did not eliminate them.
The crashes have occurred when i was attempting to attach a document to an email in yahoo mail. The crashes have also occurred when I was attempting to add a photo to a news article i was writing for Examiner.co using their publishing tool.
I just switched from Windows XP. Firefox NEVER crashed when i was trying to do this in XP.
I tried to duplicate the problem in Internet Explorer 11, which came with my PC. I have not been able to duplicate the problem with Explorer.
What is going on?

I have 3 computer running: windows XP, windows 7 and windows vista. The one running windows XP was updated to Firefox 20.0.1, everything went well but it refused to sync any data at all. I read that I had to upgrade to the latest sync software on all computers to get sync to work. Rather than doing that, I removed Firefox and all associated data, then installed Firefox 20.0.1 in the 2 remaining computers; big mistake, now I can’t sync any of the computers. I don’t even know if my sync data is still there or not, there is no way to find out. Note that when I was running the previous version of Firefox, sync worked perfectly on all computers, I didn’t have any problem. Note: in Firefox 20.0.1 sync has been degraded, now we don’t get any options, just sync; which doesn’t work. If I click on “manage”, all I get is “change password” or “remove account” but I don’t want either, all I want is to sync. Please help, and thanks much in advance.

Firefox's old sync was clunky but extremely useful. I can't get the new sync to work at all, which is not at all useful. Basically, I've gone to Settings > Options > Sync > Unlink this device. That displays a very large dialog box with just one very short statement on it which reads "Determining your account status ..." Apparently, that task takes a very long time indeed because I've let it sit there for two days, and it's still determining my account status. I can click OK or Cancel, and the dialog box will go away. Then, if I go back to Settings > Options > Sync, it doesn't even give me a chance to tell it I want to unlink. Instead it goes directly to the dialog box stating that it's still determining my account status.
I would very much like to be able to sync Firefox across a couple of computers. Is there any way to do that?
