Hello, everyone!

I've filed a bug report here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1004476 The problem is that after installing Firefox 29 with no profile at all and installing any addon that requires a browser restart (NoScript for e.g.) Firefox restarts OK, but after closing it and trying to open again I get a message: "Firefox is already running". I can see in the Task Manager that there is already Firefox running in the background. I've found several people complaining about this issue. Here: http://forums.informaction.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=19612 And here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2825639

Thank you in advance

2nd Update. (Comment by a moderator)
Engineers are working on issues that have been identified.
The known issues are problems with Firefox hanging on closedown resulting in Firefox not restarting unless the hung process is killed.

Workaround ensure Firefox is NOT set to clear History on Close down
Use NewButton New Fx Menu → Preferences → |Privacy| Firefox will: [Remember History v ]

I support a large number of users who are... let's say, technically challenged. virtually every site they need to use for work requires Java, as do many of the ones they use at home. It's not practical for me to go around and train them all how to figure out whether a site uses Java and how to enable Java when necessary.

Is there any way for me to just globally enable Java on their systems?

Forcing them all to switch to Chrome or IE would bring other problems, but will be significantly easier than trying to train them new behaviors with Firefox.

Recently I updated my Firefox from version 22 to 23 and I noticed copy and paste text from web pages in Firefox to other applications like notepad and even Firefox not working in my windows 8 x86. Copying text from other apps like notepad and pasting to Firefox works fine! I also updated it to beta v24 and same problem is still there. I don't have any issue with IE. BTW I don't have ZoneAlarm Installed.

Firefox used to remember my bank password, but it does not any longer. After downloading the update to version 23.0.1 today, the remember password feature appeared broken.

I tried many things and eventually got passwords working on other sites, but not my bank. I deleted the saved password from the password manager in an attempt to try and get the Remember Password prompt to show up again, but it didn't work. I checked in Exceptions and it's completely empty, so that's not it. I also tried using the bookmarklet for fixing autocomplete on sites that it's disabled and my bank doesn't appear to disable it.

I've spent an hour and a half researching this and trying everything I could but I am at a loss. This computers main user is an elderly man so having the bank remember the password is a MUST.

The plugin checker page, however, shows that my flash is supposedly "vulnerable" but it is most definitely not (it's the latest updated version offered by adobe in their extended support cycle for corporate use)

I prefer the tabs to be under the address bar on my Firefox. Previously I could simply click or unclick an option to do this, and it remained the same as I upgraded. However, I recently moved to Linux Mint 16, and it had Firefox 24 already installed. I synched my bookmarks, but was unable to locate the option to move the tabs. I actually have the roomy bookmarks toolbar, and the tabs previously sat below it. Ideally, I would like to get them there again.

My website boscarn wedding cars opens as it should using internet explorer or chrome etc, however recently I received complaints about the layout or display of my website using mozilla firefox. I have investigated and research ways to fix this and have gotten no where. I have no control over people using firefox if they want to, but when it starts effecting my business I have to try and get it sorted. I use windows xp pro but know that this same thing happens on windows 7 and 8 also.

I use daily.com instant website, web hosting to create my website. The site is www.boscarnweddingcars.co.uk please take a look and advise on how to fix this problem.

Please get back to me as soon as possible. this is my livelyhood.

Im trying to sync my desktop with a new laptop. Have followed instructions and entered 12 digits where requested having signed up for an account in advance.

After adding the 12 digits neither of them shows any sign of syncing. the next page asks for account details plus a Recovery Key. I've not found a Recovery Key and have spent some time looking at Support pages. The Sync tab on both shows pairing and syncing click-ons only - no manage account etc as indicated in support info.

be very grateful for somebody to talk me through this in a simple way. Many thanks in advance

So I am having exactly the same problem as this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/959280

In short, I updated firefox and now new tabs always open with a bing search. The url that keeps opening is: search.conduit.com/?ctid=CT3312375&octid=EB_ORIGINAL_CTID&SearchSource=69&CUI=&SSPV=EB_SSPV&Lay=1&UM=2&UP=SP634F83D9-5B86-4960-A131-4A6C35FD668C

I'm quite sure this isn't a problem with any add ons. I've disabled all that could possible affect it.

I've tried to use the suggestion of the top reply but in the about:config section I don't have a searchinnewtabeenabledbyuser preference name. I've looked at all the other "newtab" related preferences names and done what the original replier said (type false into the value section) but it hasn't worked! There's a preference name called browser.newtab.url with the url that is opening in each new tab as the "value" but every time I try to change it, it just reverts back to that url.

I would so appreciate if someone would help me. I hate Bing!!!! Even more so now that they've pulled this crap.

Have installed Java 7 update 45. Have both 32- and 64-bit versions installed from Oracle website.

Works in Chrome.

Firefox 24.0 displays error message stating that the Java plugin has known vulnerabilities.

On the support page there is a link to this explanation from January 2013 which regards Java 7 update 11. https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2013/01/11/protecting-users-against-java-vulnerability/

Does anyone have a permanent fix and preferably an explanation for this?

I know how to allow Java to run once as well as always on a specific site https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-enable-java-if-its-been-blocked

What I'm wondering is why Firefox still blocks Java per default when Java has been updated many times since the explanation was written.

Thanks a bunch!

Today, I noticed an advertisement on a page I visited. This advertisement was labelled "Download Keeper" and showed a few pictures with products and prices in dollars. I didn't expect such advertisements on the site in question and so I looked more closely at it. In the mark-up, I find a lot of elements containing classes starting with SF_ like SF_IIAD_EXPL and url's starting with http://www.superfish.com. Also, some javascript files are loaded from http://rvzr-a.akamaihd.net. Then, I looked at my add-ons and found 4 suspicious ones: DDoowload keeper 1.6 DoWnlOad KeeEper 1.6 Download keeper 1.6 DownnlOadd KeepEr 1.6 How could these have come here? I certainly didn't add them intentionally. Will they have come in with some software installer? Is there some way I can prevent these types of add-ons to be installed?

I use Firefox 24, and lately it's been freezing every couple of seconds. It seems to be worse whenever I try to type in a text box or open a new tab. I've disabled hardware acceleration. I'm confident it is not a malware problem. I didn't have this issue with Firefox 23 up until recently, and upgrading to 24 didn't help. I don't understand what the problem is. My best guess is that upgrading to Flash 11.8.800.168 did it, but Googling it didn't seem to reveal anyone else having these issues after patching.
