I have recently started having the redirection issue with Amazon. I click on a product link on the Amazon website and now I get the message that this page is not properly redirecting. I try Chrome and it works fine. I have cleared my cache, insured that cookies are accepted and I have searched for solutions. I did find several others reporting this problem, but none of their solutions worked for me. The odd thing is that some links on Amazon still work properly. But others don't. Here is a link that is not working for me: https://www.amazon.com/ChickenFuel-OMRI-Listed-Organic-Compost-Fertilizer/dp/B0102PAT9O?ie=UTF8&fpl=fresh&redirect=true&ref_=s9_cartx_gw_g86_i3_r
Here is another link that works fine: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VOLHKHA/ref=br_asw_pdt-2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-4&pf_rd_r=57NDHMP0ADH9BCSMAPX8&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=4ccd27f1-4604-40d9-92c7-3318b57f8ba8&pf_rd_i=desktop
And, as I wrote above, all these links work in other browsers, i.e. Chrome. But I hate switching to Chrome so I can use Amazon. As far as I can tell, Amazon is the only website that has this issue. I browse a lot, so that seems strange to me.

OK - I have searched and Googled.
This happens with FF 46 32 bit, 64 bit, portable, on Win 7 32 bit, 64 bit and windows 10. It happen in safe mode. It has all plugins up to date. I t has remove all but needed and non removable add ins - such as Flash, Acrobat Reader, etc. It happens on computers with plenty of RAM (16 GB). Oddly enough, it happens worse with safe mode and plugin container is run-a-way. With normal mode, it appears that plugin container is under control and Firefox itself runs amuck.
So - totally repeatable. Page down in Firefox with one or 50 tabs open - no matter. It will crash. Goes black, or stops responding. Until Firefox closes. NEVER happens with Edge for example.
I have to think it is a Firefox memory leak, but even using Firemin does not help much if at all.
What can be done? I have done my homework!

I have Windows 10 & Firefox 46. I am not computer savvy. Windows security is telling me I need to tun on Smartscreen. Is this necessary to enable with Firefox? I do access a remote desktop from work that uses Internet Explorer but I do not use it for my personal browser. Thank you kindly for your tips.

The language selector menu from the right-click menu doesn't print out correctly the language name of the spellchecker dictionary.
I have installed the venetan dictionary (language code ISO639-3 vec) I've created (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dithionario-de-lengua-v%C3%A8neta/?src=ss) but in the right-click menu appears the language "vec" alongside my default "English (United States)". Why doesn't it spell out "Venetan"? Is there something I did wrong?

This is probably the most bizarre computer issue I've had, and I have absolutely no idea where to go from here.
I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. No problems with ANY other programs(that I've seen so far), except Firefox.
It appeared that Firefox wasn't registered as a program. When going to Default Programs, Firefox was not an option on the list, and in fact, it was not even in the System>Apps&features list(or appwiz.cpl) to remove. The shortcut on my desktop and in the start menu were still there, but when I click them, nothing opens. Checking task manager, it would open under Background apps for a split second, then drop off the list.
So I downloaded the Firefox installer and installed it over my current install, same version of Firefox, to repair registry entries. Now it's registered. Was able to select it as the default browser, shows up in the Apps&Features. I have uninstalled it, and then again reinstalled it from the downloaded installer, and it still will not open from the shortcuts, or even directly double-clicking firefox.exe in its install folder. Reinstalled it... the same issue still. Now I looked this up a little in Mozilla Support. Checking in %appdata%/Mozilla/Firefox/Crash Reports, there are no crash reports from these failed opening attempts (renamed the old Crash Reports folder, and a new one isn't even created). There was also the possibility that the profile was corrupt, so I tried firefox.exe -P to open the profile manager, but I got the same exact issue with it the first time. It would show up for a split second in Background apps on Task Manager, then disappear. No crash reports. Also, for the heck of it, tried to Run as Admin, no results.
This is where things actually get weird. You see, I had an HTML file on my desktop, and decided to open it. It still had the Firefox icon, because I had firefox set as the default program to open it back on Windows 7... Firefox opened to the file. Everything was there, too. All my bookmarks, my settings, saved passwords, theme, interface setup, plugins, extensions, everything. Well, the profile doesn't seem to be the problem. So I closed Firefox. tried to open it from the shortcut, still nothing. Went to test something else, pulled up Thunderbird, went to an email that had a link in it, clicked the link... Firefox opened to the link.
Once it's opened, everything works perfectly fine.
I've tried changing my homepage and "when firefox starts" settings... they have yet to result in anything useful.
So I dove into my registry a bit, and looked at the associated commands to open Firefox via HTML files and URLs... in the command line (and run prompt too) "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -osint -url "http://www.google.com" Nothing. "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -osint -url "file:///C:/Users/Rich/Desktop/test.html" Nothing.
I have absolutely no idea what could possibly be going on with this.
Checked Windows Event Viewer... and there's most certainly a crash message, but it provides no useful information.

If dumps of the Windows Error Reporting data would help, I can also post those. I am at wits end with this. Sure, I can open Firefox still, which is good, but I do not like having to use the hackish methods to do it every time.

Starting this morning, when I tried to open FF, Crash Reporter popped up. When I tried again, same thing. It takes 3 to 6 times of "restart firefox" before FF finally opens.
I restored via MozBackup to a version of a month prior, but no difference.
I tried starting Safe Mode. The first time, it opened. I then closed FF, and every next time, same old problem.
I tried disabling all add-ons. No change.
I entered: about:crashes and got a long list of bp files. What might I try???

I'm stuck with Firefox version 36 with no options to change. I need to be able to send a config file or batch file to multiple users that will update the popups exceptions list with a specific site while leaving popup blocker enabled. I'm also running Windows XP (also stuck to this with no option of upgrade). I've tried using a hostperm.1 file with this line in it: "host popup 1 mysite.com" and this doesn't work. I've also tried adding it to the auto config file with this line: "pref("xpinstall.whitelist.add", "mysite.com");" but this doesn't work either. Is there a command line that will do this for me? Or another config file that will accomplish this?

I've seen some rumors as to why 1-star and 2-star reviews have been being deleted on the pages of add-ons such as Adblock Plus: the most notable ones being that either the developers themselves somehow have the ability to delete these reviews, or some random people have been simply flagging them all for deletion and whoever is reviewing these deletion requests is simply complying (if so, then they seem to be using rather lax criteria).
Either way, I haven't seen official responses regarding this odd occurrence, from either developers or Mozilla. It's rather hard to trust anything that has all of its negative reviews deleted with no explanation, so I think this needs to be addressed.
(I would also like to know if I posted this question to the correct place. It's not about Mozilla Firefox itself, but it is about something integral to the Firefox experience.)

Hi all; apologies for the long post.
All of the major browsers recently dumped applets or intend to, including Firefox. I have spent the last five years developing a ranking engine web site and software based around a 64,839 line Applet that needs to pass customised ranking criteria back to the server once the user has finished modifying the preset criteria to their needs (the ranking criteria is stored as graphs).
Web Start is simply not going to do the job and its too big a project to start from scratch and rebuild it in something else. The whole project, including test data SQL code is over 234,000 lines of code and was due to be launched in March next year. Seriously, they could not have picked a worse time to dump Applets.
The following is a bit of an overview of the engine. Please; to any Mozilla staff reading this, this engine is well worth supporting...
Even if just one browser supported Applets, I could convince people to switch browsers. This technology will change the web and computing like no other, and will attract a lot of users, so I would please ask that Mozilla consider reinstating the option of running Applets. The web site is only a product ranking engine for retail products at present, but will expand into other areas at a latter date. It can capture a knowledgeable expert's ranking knowledge, for virtually any retail product, and then make it available for anyone to use at the click of a button.
The engine is based on an abstract theory for how the human brain uses neural networks to rank things for us. The engine is capable of ranking pretty much anything the human brain can rank. Like the human brain, it is capable of ranking entities that have absolutely no attributes in common within the ranking criteria (I'm not really sure what that can be used for yet). It can also use any attribute, that the brain uses to rank things, for which we have no formal system of measurements. This is possible through the use of graphs to capture, edit and store the ranking criteria. Essentially, if an entity type has describable attributes, then it can be ranked by this engine.
If the user is always willing to accept the highest ranked entity, then it can be used to capture a large number of decision processes which use ranking of a set of options, and which do not make use of the imagination. It can then accurately emulate that decision process. This technology will allow Robotics, AI and Software Agents to make a large number of decisions the way that we do.
This theory is part of a wider theory for how the human brain generates most all emotions and feelings, including those for interactions and the Ego, using neural networks. This theory was developed over a period of 17 years. The ranking engine was merely a byproduct of this work.
This is no pie in the sky theory, the engine has been fully functional for over two years, and is currently ranking 1225 digital cameras using 89 attributes. It is only the background administration of the web site that needs finishing. I also have an Australian Provisional Patent "METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR RANKING ENTITIES - AU2016900828" (http://www.ipaustralia.com.au/applicant/wegner-ronald-robert/patents/AU2016900828/). My patent attorney firm, Spruson & Ferguson based in Sydney Australia, would never allow a hoax to tarnish their reputation.
If anyone at Mozilla is reading this, please consider keeping the option of Applets!
Kind Regards, Robbie Wegner

See question above. This has happened with numerous updates -- data destroyed, passwords, formatting and add-ons and bookmarks are lost by the thousands. This has stopped us cold as a company, losing significant revenues and much labor time to try and repair.
Why the f*ck does Firefox think it is okay to destroy customers data, disrupt their business materially and leave the customer holding the bag WITH NO IN-PERSON LIVE SUPPORT AVAILABLE FROM FIREFOX/MOZILLA TO REMEDIATE THE NUMEROUS PROBLEMS THEY HAVE CAUSED. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.
As a prompt to the "upgrade" to 46.0, Firefox has the nerve to ask the question: "Would you like to "freshen up" your Firefox?" HOW DARE THEY?
I FOR ONE WANT TO KNOW WHO AT FIREFOX IS ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS!!!!
I EXPECT A PHONE CALL FROM THAT PERSON -- I HAVE CALLED INTO THEIR MOUNTAIN VIEW OFFICE THREE TIMES WITH NO RESPONSE AND I AM LOSING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AS OUR WHOLE TEAM WAS "UPGRADED" AT THE SAME TIME AND SO OPERATIONS JUST STOPPED.

Having a problem with one particular webpage. Have deleted an DNS unlocker from my programs, run malwarebytes to remove a pup, run firefox in safe mode which is fine, and refreshed firefox, which then works ok only for a couple of browsing sessions before the problem returns. The problem being, the page hangs and then becomes unresponsive, but only on this website. Have successfully done this twice but the problem still returns. My operating system is windows 7.

My Firefox crashes on a page from my personal website: http://www.doviddebresser.info/Collection.php?letter=g
These pages show a large amount of small images. The strange thing is that only the letter "g" crashes, and "g" is by far not the page with the largest amount of images (that would be "s").
Another strange thing is that Firefox crashes right away when I try to open the page, not after beginning to open the page, as usually happens when there are too many images on the page, that the crash occurs after Firefox already shows a few hundred images.
I have the latest Firefox version: 46.0.1. Windows 7 with more or less the latest updates. The problem also occurs in safe mode. The problem does not occur using Internet Explorer. I have a few add-ons, like dictionaries, but nothing special. Java is also updated. I also have the Adblock plus extension, but it is de-activated on my userpage.
