I can't get electrolysis/e10s/multiprocess to not be disabled by add-ons. Running on Debian.

So, I upgraded to FF50 (From the Debian unstable repos, 50.0.2 according to the repo and the about: page), and flipped the about:config key browser.tabs.remote.autostart to True.

Looking at the "Multiprocess Windows" field at the about:support page it tells me that it's enabled properly, with all my addons disabled.

But if I enable any addon (I've tried with every addon installed that the compatibility reporter tells me is compatible, you can see a list in the troubleshooting information) and restart the browser, the about:support page tells me that multiprocessing is "Disabled by add-on".

From reading at the mozilla wiki (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Electrolysis) and generally around the web, it seems that from version 50 and on, e10s should be working with add-ons as long as they are multiprocessing compatible, which the Add-On Compatibility Reporter (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/add-on-compatibility-reporter) tells me all of my add-ons are. (Except the DOM inspector, which I only enable when I need anyway)

Is there something I have overlooked? Something more that I should try?

Troubleshooting information is with the Add-On Compatibility Reporter enabled, and all other add-ons disabled.

I have several workstations on my network that will not properly boot into Windows after installing the 50.0.2 update and Maintenance Service. My end users have been performing several hard shutdowns in order to get Windows to boot properly( I do not advise this). This situation has been worse with computers that installed Windows updates during the same session as the Mozilla update. These computers get stuck in a continuous installation loop. Fixes that have worked include booting to safe mode and issuing " shutdown -r" in an elevated cmd terminal, or uninstalling Firefox and Maintenance Service completely from safe mode. Do we need to discontinue use, block your updates on our network, or is there another solution?

Hi all,

Am running LMDE 2, fully up-to-date and using Firefox 50.0.2 but Firefox has been really painfully slow for a while now - it's so slow to start, slow to scroll a page even with only one tab open, and takes a minute to type out a full word. I've tried starting Firefox in safe mode, completely deleting my user profile and starting fresh, used "apt-get remove --purge" and then reinstalling firefox.... and still stupidly slow. Chrome is speedy, starts up fast, can run 20+ tabs without a slow-down in performance, no problem at all.

And my laptop is no slouch - it's 3 years old, has a quad core i7 processor, 8GB RAM and a Quadro video card. I also run LMDE 2 and all apps from a 256GB SSD card. The home directory is on a 500GB SATA hard drive, however. So I do expect better performance from Firefox so there must be something wrong - I'd really appreciate it if someone can give me some pointers as to what could be wrong please?

Hi all -

I am using a 10 year old XP SP3 system for some legacy things and running FF 50.x. very nicely.

Let's face it, XP's days are past numbered. However, sites like CNET, CNN, etc. will not play the main video content. I've tried many of the articles and attempted fixes on this forum and understand that time is running out.

Is there some program or plug-in that can buy me some extra time or is it just going to be hit or miss? BBC's site works fine. It all depends on the website that is streaming the video.

How can I tell what format the video content is being streamed in?

I thought that Firefox would bring built-in compatibility by translating these new video formats so older systems can play them. Am I incorrect?

CNN Image attached to show example.

Any help appreciated and thanks! :)

For the last month or two I have started getting pop-ups from reputable sites which I have used for years. These are not the typical ad pop-ups either, like asking for donations to a site or the like, or even ads for products based on browsing history. These are specifically pop-ups for adult themed or adult suggestive games. Today's most recent one was for a game called Stormfall: age of war, which does not seem to be an actual adult game, but it asks if I'm over 18. It popped up while I was browsing audible.com of all things. I have Adguard installed, and sometimes it seems to catch the popups and either block them or give me a warning screen, but not always. One site I use regularly is Symbolab.com, which is a mathematics help site and calculator that I have been using for 2+ years without issue. It was the first site to start giving me adult game pop-ups, one of which was a game called P***y Saga, the others weren't quite as jarring, so I don't remember what they were. The odd thing is that it is specifically games, not porn sites, not dating sites, just game sites that specifically ask if I am 18. They seem like they may even be legit games, such as Stormfall, not malware or the like. Bitdefender doesn't detect any malware or viruses present, nor does Windows MSRT. I'm at a loss as to what changed to cause this to start. I'm the only one on this computer and my browsing habits have not changed recently. Firefox is up to date, and I only install updates directly from Mozilla, never from pop-ups. Any Ideas as to the possible cause would be greatly appreciated.
