For the last few years, when opening multiple tabs (esp. facebook. For example 2 dozen of facebook tabs, usually much less if other websites are already loaded on other tabs), black rectangles appear on the page, and after opening a few more tabs, Firefox becomes unresponsive and crashes. Since I already know what's coming, usually I don't let it come to this, but restart Firefox when black appears on the page. (to be more precise about this black thing: the whole page would be black and Firefox button and tabs would also not be displayed correctly (see attachment), and then when elements are graphically "rerendered", like on mouseover event, or when scrolling, they sometimes would be shown normally again.) Still, overall I've submitted so far over a thousand crash reports.

I tried reinstalling Firefox, "Refresh Firefox", and this behaviour still happens on safe mode. Since many times RAM usage would be maxed, I upgraded my RAM to see if the problem would be solved. While performance improved, the problem persisted and I found out there's no need for RAM usage to be maxed out for these crashes to happen. I believe unchecking the hardware acceleration setting didn't help either. I vaguely remember reading about an open bug about black on pages. One way or the other, any help or ideas how to solve this problem or what would be causing it would be greatly appreciated.

Purchased a new Dell - Inspiron 17 5000 Series Model 5759. Windows 10 x64 bit system. When using Mozilla FIrefox, latest version, 44.0.2, I get the following message "Display Driver Intel HD Graphics Drivers for Windows 8(R) stopped responding and successfully recovered". Firefox becomes blank for a few seconds and then resumes. This happens every 2-3 days, not every day. All drivers updated as well as updating all Windows updates.

To isolate the problem, I started using Chrome. The message does not appear when using Google Chrome browser.

I would like to determine the cause so I can use Firefox as that is my browser of choice. Any ideas here? This is a fully updated system, so what's the problem?

When following links on wikipedia itself, this does not happen, it's only on the google search results page. It also doesn't happen when I'm opening the link in a new tab.

The same also happens for other sites like stackoverflow.com... VERY annoying...

I suspect that running Cclean does something to FireFox 44, which results in FireFox re-installing plug-ins. I only have two plugins Setpoint (which is not installed) and Adobe Acrobat -- Create PDF 2.0 (Acrobat 11.0 professional) (which I want installed).

I general run cclean to remove temporary files and cookies. The programs worked together until FireFox 44.

What can I do to prevent FireFox from uninstalling (plug-ins are not visible) and the requesting to re-install Adobe Acrobat -- Create PDF 2.0 (Acrobat 11.0?

Whether it be a shopping website or a forum, when I try to log in with the correct details it just keeps refreshing the page back to the login page and won't let me check my accounts or anything. This is extremely annoying as it is on every single website I try to log onto!

I don't know if something in the recent firefox update messed up my security settings, but this is really annoying. I also can't make changes to wikis for example, it just keeps refreshing the page.

Hi,

we have a user that's having an issue with thunderbird crashing when opening certain emails. Not all emails just a few from the ones received each day. The crash signature relates it to the following unsolved bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1016524

The user did not submit all crash reports but the ones that were submitted follow:-

bp-aa9a5f44-ce90-4494-86a5-296d92160204 bp-b3513a59-5569-4328-8cbc-237f82160208 bp-fdfe8f2f-099a-4437-bc94-242e32160210 bp-d96f869c-7b31-44f7-bcee-e0db82160210 bp-ebc6b533-2cac-4e5f-8ac6-38f922160210 bp-a392ce9b-3eb5-47b3-9cfd-e30f62160210

Then we upgraded to windows 10 but the issue persists:-

We have disabled add ons, reinstalled Thunderbird, deleted the accounts and data stores and re-downloaded the email from scratch but the issue persists.

Any help or suggestions appreciated

The website AutoRoundUp.com recently went through some redesigning and since, the pop-up that usually appears has not been working in Mozilla. The small dialogue box is supposed to pop up and stay on the user's screen until they exit out of it. The computers that we are currently use in the office have no Add-Block extensions and each has had the settings adjusted so that pop ups are allowed but we still are not able to see or access the pop up dialogue box. On one computer, box will occasionally pop up for 1-2 seconds, but then disappears.

The Firefox Homepage says "Mozilla stands up for online privacy. Will you join us? Sign up to get important email updates and opportunities to stand with us."

And then asks for my email, first name, and country.

And then says "I’m okay with Mozilla handling my info as explained in this Privacy Notice." with an unchecked checkbox next to it. Below this, there is a "SUBMIT" button.

In the right hand corner of this is an x, it appears it is meant to make this go away. I click it, and it does not go away. It seems like ti goes away for a split second, then is back. I keep clicking the x, and it keeps coming back.

I do not want to fill this out. I will not supply my info. I will not check the box. I am NOT ok with Mozilla handling my info. I will NOT click the submit button.

How do I make this intrusive request for my info disappear? Or do I have to go back to another browser? Thank you.
