Hello,

   We have been using Outlook Web Access 2010 within our organization for a few months now, and have been using firefox to do so. With the latest Firefox 8 update, it seems that certain attachments download as "attachment.ashx". Yes, I said ASHX not ASPX. My research tells me that ashx files have to do with the .NET Framework. It seems that this is only occurring since we downloaded Firefox 8.
   Yes, changing the file extension allows us to open the files, and we can set a program to handle the file extension, but that would only apply when the ashx extension is only affecting one file type, but it seems to happen for more than 1 document type. I have experienced this issue with .pdf, .doc, .xls, .docx and .xlsx.
   Any ideas as to what would be causing this as of the latest update?

I use Firefox all the time and really rely on it. I hate using IE. Lately, though (just in the past month or so) it is really annoying me. I will be using it just fine and then all of a sudden, clicking on links or putting in a URL will not work. It just hangs there, and the little round thing spins at the top of the tab (like the hourglass) and it just hangs forever. The only thing that works is if I close down Firefox and then restart it a little later (or reboot my pc). This is getting really annoying. It happens several times a day. Thanks! I am using Firefox 8.01 with Windows XP. I just reinstalled Windows a few months ago, so everything is clean and fresh and new :)

Wanted to let you nice people know who tried to help me that Java put up another new update (gee, I wonder why?) and after several installs and removal of older Java, it finally took. Everything matches in my computer where it's supposed to be except for one thing. Someone who had earlier answered my question told me to go to the Java homepage and test there to see what version I had. After Java properly installed and plug-in page and my add-on page and my installed programs all jived, I went to Java to just check if it reflected my new version and it doesn't. It bounces to a page saying why Java isn't working. Well, duh. I have news for it, I have it done. I think these things are done to drive us crazy. LOL! Anyway, just wanted to let you know the latest and thanks!

As I said. Firefox has never given me any problems over the years. However, in the last 3 weeks it keeps freezing on me. When it does this I open the task manager and end the process "plugin-container.exe". This then gets firefox going again.

This is happening on both my work computer and my home computer. All plugins on both are eith up to date or disabled.

I did get some random flash crash messages earlier today when I hadn't even got Firefox open. Please sort this out as it's getting very annoying.

Hey there, I have been using Firefox for a few years with out any troubles. Then I updated to 7 last night. And since then Firefox has been more or less un-useable. The issue happens when I have about 3 or 4 tabs open and browsing in each one. Firefox has trouble loading up a site and then it can not load any other site in the tabs. I am not talking about small sites, but gmail, msn, netflix, engadget, CNN, ect. This has NEVER happened before. I have tried to disable all addon and start in safe mode only to see the same thing happen. It even happened to this help page.

It almost as if when a site is slow to load something, it cause any new site not to load from that point on. The fix is to always go back to the offend tab. Stop it and all other tabs. Then try again.

I opened up IE 9 and tested the same URLS and sure enough they did not have this issue.

Any ideas?

When i log into my googlemaps account and want to add my own icons to the map, they do not appear anymore when i use firefox. It looks like there is a broken GIF error on the maps and then nothing shows up. I have tried IE and Chrome on the same computer and it works fine. Would love to have my firefox back though. Please let me know if you can help with this issue. It seems to have started late afternoon last Thursday.

Hi again community,

maybe it's just me, but i think lately Mozilla might be rushing firefox updates without any noticeable changes, or in this case, a change for the worse.. can't make much sense how within 1 year or less we go from firefox 4 to 8, without any significant improvements from version to version, especially when other browsers are becoming faster and lighter, and whenever i update firefox i lose one or two more plugins, and still, it becomes slower..

usually i handle it well and bite the bullet, but this time, sometimes i'm getting 1-2sec. response delays, which i just can't handle.. i would like to know either: - how do i solve this problem on ff8? or.. - how do i rollback to ff7 without losing all my definitions?..

Thanks!

I work from behind a corporate network and use Firefox for web development.

Firefox 8 works fine for web browsing but when I use "Ctrl F5" the Authentication Required dialogue comes up for every element on a given web page.

This is obviously not practical for pages with large numbers of images and so on.

The following message appears at the top of the dialogue:

"The proxy moz-proxy://proxy1.netkit.mycompany.gov:6000 is requesting a username and password. The site says: "moz-proxy://proxy1.netkit.mycompany.gov:6000""

If I use just "F5" then Firefox works as normal. I have older versions of Firefox Portable on the same machine that are unaffected by this issue.

I recently got a new computer and upgraded to Firefox 8. Now, when I save an image from a website, Firefox will "remember" and, the next time I save an image, open a random folder that I saved an image in last time I was on that site, and choose to save it there. This wouldn't be a problem if, 1) it wasn't a random folder out of the several I save into, and 2), if I have to cancel out of an image for any reason, the next time I go to save (seconds later, without refreshing/leaving a page), it will have chosen another random folder for me to save in and I'm misplacing my files.

I'd like to return Firefox to the previous image saving habits, where I have to choose the folder each time, and it doesn't "remember" anything that I've done, as it is only causing headaches.

I updated to Firefox 8.0 today and noticed my App Tabs aren't saved when I close Firefox.

I have set Firefox to open up my home page upon startup. Firefox 7 would open my home page along with any App Tabs from my previous session. Under Options>Privacy, I have set it to "Firefox will remember history". This problem also occurs when I have all my Add-ons disabled, so I am sure that's not what is getting in the way. Am I doing something wrong?

The address bar does not show the current tabs FULL URL. I have tried the Trim URL trick to no avail. It is also disheartening that there is no COPY LINK option in the file menu. I need to be able to see the full URL and be able to copy it for a host of reasons. Would also be nice to make sure that I am on an HTTPS page and not have to guess. Take a look at this website and see that no matter what page you go to, the URL stays the same.

Really would like to know the reason that FF took it out of the mix, what is the problem or issue or was it just someone's idea of a cute piece of code?
