My 'Task Scheduler' won't display running tasks since updating Firefox yesterday.

When I use my Task Scheduler and select 'View all running tasks' I get "unavailable". The last succesfully recorded task history was immediately before upgrading to Firefox 23. What did you do!?!

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed after a reboot and now everything is working again with Firefox 23 installed. The real shame is that most users don't even know enough to even check their Task Scheduler or Event Viewer for problems.

Hi Zuhl3156, is the Task Scheduler a feature of an add-on or a website?

(As far as I know, there's no Task Scheduler built in to Firefox)

Task Scheduler is a standard utility in Windows 7. My PC was working perfectly fine including my Task Scheduler until I updated to Firefox 23. Nothing else has been changed. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS and have run the SFC utility without any errors. I have run Intel Rapid Storage Technology and verified the integrity of my SSD array. I can find no issues with my OS or PC. I have been using Firefox for a long time and I dislike that 23 removed my Bookmarks folder from the Bookmarks bar and I now have to click on the 'star' to see my bookmarks. There seems to be no way to get Firefox 22 so I can roll back to it.

I can't think of a reason for the Windows Task Scheduler to have halted. Have you restarted Windows since the update?

Regarding the bookmarks icon, you could try dragging it back to the Bookmarks Toolbar. To do this, you need to enter Customize mode using one of the following:

  • right-click a blank area of the Tab bar > Customize
  • (tap the Alt key to display the menu bar) View menu > Toolbars > Customize

After moving the icon, click the Done button. Any luck?

My Task Scheduler is operating and starting the tasks it is supposed to start but I can't monitor the 'RunDuration'. After I upgraded to firefox 23 my mouse pointer would flicker whenever I hovered over text. I had to reboot to get that to stop. If I feel energetic later this week I will uninstall Firefox. If that resoves my problems then I can resore a System Image from Monday morning with Firefox 22 in it and I will never upgrade. I used Chrome for years until some 'genius' decided to double-space my bookmarks to make it more "tablet friendly" without any options for me to decide what I wanted. So here I am using Firefox and I am worried that Mozilla has genius programmers working for them too! Removing Firefox forces me to use IE-10 essentially knocking me into the browser stone-age.

FYI, I just removed Firefox from my system and everything is fine now. Obviously something in Firefox 23 is interfering with the proper operation of my Task Scheduler. Way to go, guys!!! Now what do I do for a browser?
