I used Firefox up to version 3.5 and it worked well. But ever since, FF has frozen as soon as I've opened a webpage other than Google. FF even freezes when I'm in Mozilla's help pages ! I have trashed and reinstalled several times, updated constantly as suggested. I'm now using (or trying to use) version 25. No success. I have done everything that was suggested :
- trashed and reinstalled ( several times over the years, to see if new versions of FF would work) - restarted FF in safe mode - tweaked the profile as recommended - I've painstakingly checked that all my plug-ins etc were up to date. They are.
None of these solutions have worked. As I have written more than once, none of them should be necessary : Firefox should "just work". After all, other browsers do - I use Safari and Chrome, for instance, as well as SeaMonkey. Does any one know what's happening ?
I'm now running Mac OS 10.9.

I get sooo sick of this! It prevents me from working :/ Every time I start Firefox it freezes after 1 minute max. It doesn't matter which page I visit, or if I just start it blank. It freezes every time, and I have to kill the process. This has been going on for a couple of Days now.
I have tried resetting Firefox, as well as removing and re-installing it and the problem is still there. I use Win 8 and the antivirus says there's no problem with that part of the pc, so it's not caused by any virus etc.
I used Firefox prev. to this and never had this particular problem.

I run FF 38.0.1 on Win7. I download MP3 files from our audiobook forum by right clicking on the link and selecting "save as". Since moving to FF38, using "save as" method to download a file gives me only a file fragment. I am able to use "save as" to download the complete MP3 file with IE or Chrome.
For an example of the files I am trying to download, see "Listen" links under "Listen URL" here: https://forum.librivox.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=56485 (This is a sample project file - we have a couple hundred of these projects open at any point in time, where we collect the MP3s until it is time to put them in finished audiobook form. The issue seems to arise across the board on all of the MP3 files on our open projects.)
We have quite a few FF users among our audiobook community - and several people have now reported this problem when they updated their FF to FF38. This was not an issue with earlier versions of FF. None of the other reports indicate what OS is being used. We download both MP3 and FLAC files, and the people with this problem have it with all files that they try to download using FF (so it's not that some MP3s can be saved and others can't - the "save as" function doesn't work for any of them). They also report no issues using Save As to download any files using IE or Chrome.
One of our forum users reported that if you begin playing the MP3 file by opening the link to the MP3 in a new tab, you can then navigate to the new tab, right click anywhere in the page and click "save page as" to successfully download the MP3 file. I have tried this and it does work. But it would be quicker to be able to use "save as" without having to begin playing the audio file first in a new tab.
I have tried using "save as" to download an MP3 file for one of our finished projects which are hosted over at Internet Archive. That works fine, and "save as" results in the entire MP3 file being downloaded. As an example, I successfully downloaded the MP3 of chapter 1 here: https://archive.org/download/drjekyllandmrhydedr_1505_librivox

Hi - please help! I'm running Windows 10 on a Dell Laptop. Firefox won't shut down at all and every morning it asks if I want to restore the previous session. This is causing all sorts of issues. I've followed all the advice in the troubleshooting guide (ie updating windows, stopping fast start up, and everything else in the guide - as well as deleting and reinstalling Firefox) but nothing has worked. It's driving me nuts! Any help would be appreciated.
Flash stops working and freezes firefox. I have Fast dial and dont want to lose it so what can I do to fix this?

It doesnt matter what site or what I am doing it will come up randomly and freeze firefox then finally a box pops up and says Flash is busy or not responding continue or stop plugin. Naturally I stop plugin. I always install the latest flash versions I have even uninstall and reinstalled flash and downgraded and still no change or it bugs me to update. I am using firefox 26.0 I usually stay away from the betas if all possible. My biggest worry with using the reset firefox or making a new profile is my fast dial I have tons of sites right there waiting for me to click on and im afraid if I do all this I will lose it. But I have used same profile for years and years so maybe its time. I will just have to redo my fast dial I guess Unless someone can come up with another way to do it. I have disabled hardware acceleration on firefox I have to it makes my browser do some weird things. I also have disabled Hardware acceleration in flash as well. I have cleant temp files and registry. I am good with computers but have never seen issues like this with flash. If anyone could help that would be great. Thanks.

It mostly crashes on startup. Rarely it opens but crashes on the first or second click. It doesn't even work on safe mode. Tried every possible steps from http://mzl.la/Kpf7Zn and http://mzl.la/MP6ZBS but none of them worked. I even re-installed the windows 7. Then it worked for a day then it again started crashing.

HI, I've been having this problem with Firefox for the last two days. It does not display context and formatting of websites like Reddit, Mozilla, and sometimes YouTube. It has said many times that websites like youtube have an untrusted connection, and shockwave flash crashes. I tried uninstalling , cleaning, and reinstalling Firefox, I tried repairing it also.. I updated java, Flash, and shockwave. Did a complete scan of my computer with my Antivirus and Malwarebytes.
None of these problems are on Chrome or Edge.

I've been having a lot of trouble with youtube in FF on and off for a while now. I noticed if I run FF in safe mode, it works without any problem, but normally playing a youtube vid (even embedded in another site) can cause my display driver or even my pc to crash. My driver is fully updated, and was reinstalled cleanly. I tried refreshing FF and it didn't help. I uninstalled FF completely, even manually erasing any trace of any file/folder that had firefox or mozilla in it. Reinstalled and still the same problem continues.

Firefox hangs when I open a new tab or new webpage. It's really annoying!
Everytime I do the automatic updates this shit happens. I used to go to one of the articles where it gave me instructions on how to reset my preferences, but that thread has since been modified, it now says to delete my pref.js, but that doesn't fix the issue anymore.
So i'm resorting to actually making a god damn account and asking why this shit keeps happening. I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed aswell, but it saved some of my data which I kinda need (bookmarks). That doesn't help.
I know that resetting my preferences back to default every update used to fix it, but I forget how now. Thanks...
Can someone just tell me how to fix it so I can update without having to do all this shit again.
I have only one extension and that is adblockerplus. Not likely the cause as it does this aswell without.

I need help! :) Disclaimer: I'm actually trying to help a friend of mine, and I personally spent over an hour at my friend's apartment trying to fix his Firefox. I'm posting here so I can hopefully get some more tips from all experts here.
Symptom: Firefox completely hangs when playing back Flash videos (eg. Youtube). You can usually still hear the audio in the background, but the video freezes, and indeed the entire UI freezes. You can't even click the red [X] button to close the window at that point.
Workaround: Getting the Windows Task Manager up and killing plugincontainer.exe makes Firefox respond again, showing the "Plugin crashed" box in place of the video, and you can finally interact with the browser again.
I've tried the following:
- Ensuring that he's running the latest Firefox (8.0.1)
- Upgrading Flash to latest version - same problem before and after
- Upgraded the graphics card drivers to the latest version (it's a ATI Radeon HD 3200) - same problem before and after
- Created a new Firefox profile - still the same problem
- Made a clean install of Firefox by wiping the program folder - still the same problem
- Created a new Windows login account - still the same problem
- Tried in IE - it works fine!
- Tried in Chrome - it works fine!
I'm suspecting that this is some sort of graphics driver/flash issue, but what really boggles my mind is that it works fine in Chrome, which (I think?) uses the same non-ActiveX version of the Flash plugin.
Another piece of evidence that I think points to the device driver: running Windows in Safe Mode actually makes the video play fine (although very very low fps).
Any clues, anyone? I feel like I've tried all possible troubleshooting steps!

Since the latest updates, I now am experiencing lockup issues when accessing secure sites which I previously was able to load. Firefox shows it is busy but totally locks up and I have to use task Manager to force Firefox to close. Typically occurring during the login or verification when entering the sites.
I have used Firefox since its creation and this is the first time I have had issues of this nature. It is my default browser.

Just got my new Macbook 12in 2015 and migrated all my files, but no apps. So I reinstalled Firefox for Mac on this new laptop thru Safari. It opened right up and had all of my info saved - history, bkmarks, etc - which was great. But I can only get it to open new Tabs. It will not open up a New Window from the file menu, or the shortcut.
I reinstalled another dmg of Firefox thru Safari, but now the Preferences also won't open. Nor New Windows again.
I've been using Firefox for years and don't know how to migrate all my info from FF into Safari to be able to use New Windows in that program. Please help : ) Carolyn

I'm using a dell Inspiron with windows vista (home basic). I downloaded Skype and was promoted to install some emoticon thing with it and somehow it closed my browsers. When I went to open it again, I'm getting messages from Microsoft windows that says "Firefox has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." I uninstalled Skype and the emoticons, restarted my laptop, and Firefox still won't open at all. Please help me! Thanks.
For the last year following an Firefox upgrade and since then, it takes the better part of 3-4 minutes for FF to load my homepage. Chrome and IE are still ok?

As previously stated. Whenever I turn on my Windows PC, and after the Desktop loads, I get no response from the Firefox icon to load my home page for 3-4 minutes. This happens without fail anytime I'm starting (not restarting) the PC. If I click the icon more that 1x I just get that many windows opening when it finally does start. No other browser is doing this. I have all the auto checks and updates turned off as well. I have tried changing my homepage to no avail. Thanks Dan Meno in Indpls.

Two days ago firefox stopped working for me. When I click on the the icon nothing happens, the only way to get it to launch is to run the installer. I've tried all the institutions on the this site to fix the issue and nothing works. I've tired to completely remove everything related to firefox then install it, this doesn't work. My guess there is a corrupt file somewhere that I need to remove but I've tired every where I can think of.

This morning also it froze up for a good 10 seconds and then it loaded the web pages again. Especially when i am browsing on a forum and return to main page or something. It just takes ages before i can select anything. It loads somewhat slower also but the part of it that i cannot select anything or scroll down before it stops thinking.
