I received a stunningly unhelpful email today (image attached) which is completely pointless unless I *was* the person syncing a new copy of Firefox on another laptop. If this wasn't me, how do I know? What device? What location? What exact time? And if I had any questions - as in 'this wasn't me - what do I do now?' where's the email address / what forum do I raise this in?

It's a bad email because 1) the grammar is awful - why not just say "a new device began syncing with your Firefox Account" 2) it should include an "if this wasn't you, please go to... and change your password now" comment.

Thanks for a cool browsing experience, but please fix this email!

Using Netflix with this version gives only a note of a problem with Internet connection and an error code: F7111-1103-500. I have an otherwise perfectly working 100 MB landline Internet, OS Win 8.1 Home. With other browsers, e.g. Chrome and IE, Netflix works OK. I've read and followed the instructions on this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can , but to no avail. I have all the relevant checked up-to-date plugins. I'd be glad of any advice.

When I updated to version 42 something happened during the upgrade. The activity icon keeps circling and my staus-4-ever add-on bar remains on and wont go away. When I try to check for updates in options it does not show the update to version 42 but when I go into help about Firefox shows I have version 42. I tried restarting my computer and it still shows the download icon circling etc. T the shut down the computer and powered it back up with the same results. I refreshed Firefox and that didn't help either. any suggestions?

Firefox has crashed 17 times since September , it does this in the middle of browsing for no reason , it just closes with the "Firefox has crashed" box popping up , since October it seems to be crashing more frequently , it has already crashed 5 times this month , since we are only on the 6th day , this is getting old fast , its obvious the latest update did not fix the issue , if anything , it made it worse , i have changed nothing else on my PC , and have not added anything in months , so i am thinking its something within Firefox itself , i do not have Add-Ons , or anything , so its not that , i am about ready to change it from my "Default" browser , i am usually browsing forums when it does this (several different forums that i always frequent , as well as Craigslist , so i do not think its the site themselves causing this either) , and even though it opens back up after i click to restart Firefox in the crash box , its still annoying and especially since its done it pretty much every day this month so far , so its getting worse , this needs to be looked into , as i even went as far as to start using Internet Explorer to browse , so its getting serious .....

Here is the last crash report which happened just prior to posting this

I had a big night writing lab reports last night (so much fun). However during that time Firefox updated to 42.0. When I turned on my computer this morning I was receiving an error message "from Microsoft Internet Explorer" which was very obviously malware. It came up with an error code of PORNDROID9007QD1 and would persistently make a high pitched beeping noise. It gave two options: "Leave page" and "stay on page" (no browser was open).

I did not do any questionable browsing or downloading. I have virus protection installed, and I'm also very security conscious having been on the internet for most of my life and know dodgy content when I see it. I don't download music, movies, or programs.

I can only find one other person with this issue online (http://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/code-porndroid9007qd1-insufficient-privileges-to-post-in-browser-hijacks-forum.381267/) and they only got this issue the other day as well. From reading there it appears to be a javascript bug originating in Chrome, but I don't use Chrome. Yes, I have a Chromium browser installed (Maelstrom) but have not used it in months.

I'm thinking this might be a new threat that just hasn't been identified yet, but the only thing that changed on my computer last night was Firefox updating.

Has anyone else had this issue?

"We're Sorry. Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore your tabs and windows when it restarts. To help us diagnose and fix the problem, you can send us a crash report. (Which does nothing)

This happens up to 3 times in a minute. Then it runs for a while and maybe the next day crashes again. Not sure whether it's add ons or something.

Any help appreciated.

Now... This browser (and others) are enabling advertisers to adjust screen sensitivity... And 'pause' adverts as we scroll down screen. Several times now i have inadvertently clicked on adverts when DEFINITLEY not applying greater finger pressure. Ive looked for touchscreen sensitivity settings... Seems they have been removed from newer android types. I bought this device and buy my data.. Why are you writers still allowing advertisers to RULE over us! Ive never ever responded to a browser add... And now because of one comanies 'intelligent' advertising i will not be ordering from them again. Adds are ruining the mobile Internet.

But today they are all gone again. I have scanned for malware and there are none.

Until this week I easily handled my cookie preferences by NOT checking the "except cookies from sites" option. I then made exceptions to this default with the exceptions tab or through a cookie manager add-on. Since the last recent Firefox update, this no longer works. Nothing in cookie exceptions does anything. In addition to not letting me allow cookies, it will also not let me block cookies when I do check the "except cookies from sites" option. The Cookie Exceptions Do Nothing. I will appreciate any real help.

In Firefox i set an SOCKS5 proxy. But for the past months it is numerous case that i accidentally accessed webpages being not proxiffied / not using proxy and i was unaware about this and realised the fact too late..

For example after proxy managing plugin installation or i temporarilly disabled proxy.

My aim is to prevent me accessing webpages without proxy. I mean somehow locking the firefox proxy configuration so even plugins cant modiffy my firefox proxy setting.

Just want to be sure i will never access internet without proxy.

Having latest Firefox and WIndows Vista.

PS: i sitll need unproxiffied access to certain websites. I have the whitelist in my Firefox proxy configuration now.

I am experiencing random occasional crashes with new Firefox versions 40 (40.0.2 , 40.0.3 both so far). They just happen randomly after a while of browsing. Sometimes it's triggered by just a mere mouse cursor movement (really strange..). Anyway here are some details.

This is what I see in .xsession-errors file after a crash:

case 1) firefox: ../../src/XlibInt.c:595: _XPrivSyncFunction: Assertion `dpy->synchandler == _XPrivSyncFunction' failed.

case 2) firefox: ../../src/xcb_io.c:385: _XAllocID: Assertion `ret != inval_id' failed.

The 2nd case happens much more often than the 1st one.

$ uname -a Linux bt 3.2.6 #1 SMP Fri Feb 17 10:34:20 EST 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I'm using a bit old linux distro backtrack 5 R2. I know this is kinda outdated distro and you will probably not gonna rash into fixing this, but I just couldn't find any info about those failed assertions, so I'm posting it here. In case you find out how to fix it or workaround it (so the new version of Firefox do not crash for me), please let me know.. Thank you!
