MAJOR issue with Firefox freezing up. Every time ANY secondary window opens, the entire browser freezes, and I have to use the task manager to shut it down. This includes windows like a little verification for a bill pay, task/link entry windows in various forums, and even Firefox functions, such as the clearing cookies/cache/etc window. When I open even that, to clear things, I can't do it. Even if the browser hasn't been opened but a few minutes, it freezes. The little windows won't close, I can't navigate from the page, nothing. I am using 3.6.28, and no, I do NOT want to upgrade. We have the latest version on other systems, and it stinks. Pop-up blocker doesn't block things that it DOES block on my system (things on the same site, same page, etc), the themes are totally GONE (and I would miss Captain Jack Sparrow at the top of my browser window!), and often, various STANDARD browser items are missing - back button, bookmark link, refresh, etc. I don't want a version with all those issues. i like the layout I have, and I like my themes. However, since the latest "update", I have had this stupid issue, and this seriously restricts my browsing. I have already tried disabling ALL of the add-ons/plug-ins, to no avail. No change whatsoever. Tried disabling all cookies. Didn't work. I can't even find mention of this particular issue in all the help pages, and I HAVE tried all of the solutions offered for Firefox "hanging". Np proxy to connect, no extra session files, no plug-in issues, nothing. I really have to wonder if this issue wasn't created, to attempt to force me to upgrade. I will NOT do so in such a fashion. I don't like being pushed. Yes, I have also checked my antivirus settings, and they are still fine. Firefox is listed as "trusted", and not restricted at all. Never caused a problem before, either, and I don't think that's the issue now.
So, who else has this ridiculous problem? Who else would like a solution that doesn't offer a limited browser with no themes? Or, hey, live chat to discuss it with a real tech person, that can DO something about it??? Yeah, i am frustrated. I LOATHE IE, and I started using Firefox because of major issues with various versions of IE, in various versions of Windows, on various computers. been using Firefox for a LONG time now, more than a decade, and never had issues like this. What gives? PLEASE help. I want the features I have, and I don't want to use IE, and will NOT use anything from Google. Need help! Someone have an idea on how to get the fox's paw out of this trap?
