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?

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 just update to Firefox 8 and a whole bunch of favicons in the address bar and the toolbar that worked fine in FF 7 now display with a dotted line square. Force refreshing or using an extension like Places does not fix the issue.

Approximately 20% of my sites that have working favicons in every other browser no longer work in Firefox 8

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?

Since upgrading to Firefox 8.0.1, it is hanging when I try to open it. Deleting profiles etc. doesn't help. I suspect the problem has to do with caching or history, since when I first quit after upgrading I had to force-quit as it was hanging.

bold textMacOS 10.5.8 is my operating system.

There is no actual crash, thus no crash ID--it just hangs forever and eventually I force-quit.

Restarting the computer hasn't helped

Downgrading to previous versions didn't help.

Deleting profiles and preferences doesn't seem to make any difference.

Apparently clean re-installs hasn't helped.

If option-opening is really safe mode on a Mac, then that isn't helping, either. It's the same hanging.

No problems are being noted with any other software.

I'm totally stumped--what else can I take off for a cleaner re-install?

Mozilla Plug-in page showed Java was outdated and needed updating. I did do that but the plug-in page still shows Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.90.5 10.9.2.5 & Java (TM) Platform SE 7U9 10.9.25 as being outdated. But when I go to my add-on page and check my plug-ins, those are both showing up as being installed and enabled and the date I updated them on which was today 12/12/12. Also I went to www.java.com to check what the latest version was and when you click on downloads it automatically checks to see if you are running the current version and it says I am running the latest version. I even went and uninstalled some old java updates that I forgot to remove in my programs. Should I just ignore the *outdated* plug-in reminders for those two on Mozilla's plug-in page since everything else is telling me I did it correctly? Thing is, how do I know when there is a new update if those two never update and consistently show they are outdated? Thanks to anyone that may be able to answer this question.

Over the last few days a few extension stopped working. I was also having trouble from your servers when updating extensions. There were also lots of problems accessing websites. So I upgraded to 8.0.1 from 8.0. Extension problems continue. I can access websites now.

This is what happens with extensions that don't work. If I reinstall them they start working. But with a new browser session the next day after rebooting my laptop, these same extensions stop working again.

This doesn't seem like an individual extension problem, but a browser problem. I really need it resolved. Please advise. The extensions are listed below. What happens with feedly is a little different. It opens my feedly in a new tab with a new browser session. There's no preference to adjust this in feedly itself, or an option to select it to do that. And my browser option for homepage on browser start up is not feedly.

I dont have a toolbar, it does not hijack my homepage. But everytime I open a new tab (which was always blank) I get a stupid bing search bar. That is the only place it shows up, but it is sooo annoying because I always go straight to typing whatever url I a going to, and this bar changes my cursors postion to it. How do I get rid of it?

I have looked in plugins/extensions. It is not there. I have looked in program files, and in control panel -> programs. Nothing there either. I even went into about:config and reset everything that had a bing value. Still having the problem. What else is there to try?

I just upgraded to Firefox 8, but it is using such enormous amounts of memory that my computer has slowed to a crawl. According to Task Manager, memory usage is now down to 1.3G but still that's so much that it's hard to see what I'm typing. The previous versions of Firefox didn't use nearly so much. If this can't be fixed, I will have to use Google Chrome or IE even though I much prefer Firefox. Closing tabs in Firefox maxes out CPU usage, and this is a new computer with lots of memory. I think this is a bug. I don't want to have to go in and disable features that I have been using. Can you tell me when there will be a fix for this?
