Like others I am tearing my hair out over repeated Flash crashes (FF25.0, win 8.1).No matter what updates etc - you get the idea....

One solution deep in help is 'Re-initializing the plugins database'. This really works but I wonder is there some way I could run this each time I start up Firefox to pre-empt the problem with Flash?

...Pretty much exactly like the title says. I checked the plugin checker after updating to Firefox 30 to see if there was anything that needed updating. Of course, there was: Shockwave and "Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in".

While I was able to get Shockwave up to date just fine, the Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in is presenting some trouble. As in, when I click "Update Now", instead of redirecting to an update page, it redirects right back to the Plugin Check page.

Where can I go to update this plugin? Does it need to be updated? Is this a glitch in the checker, and therefore I don't need to do anything?

Hi everyone!

I've been experienced an issue on my new laptop: in Firefox, on every website, It became very laggy when I scroll through a page and when I use "Energy Saver" Windows's power plan. Is there a fix?

I don't think that my hardware is the issue, there is:

Dell XPS 15 Platinum (9530) with Windows 8.1, i7-4702HQ at 2,2/3,2 GHz, 16 GB Ram, Nvidia 750M GT (2GB DDR5) and 512Go Samsung SSD.

So long story short...... I deleted my firefox history and cookies, and had the box checked off 'do not remember history' etc. I then restarted my computer and I have CCleaner which runs at start up.

To my dismay I realized I cannot find some of the sites I visited in the past 24 hours through search again and I need to find those sites. My history is empty, and I have no system restore point showing for the past 24 hours in windows 8. Now I've looked in the app data - roaming - folder and found the SQlite file, I installed the reader and the only history that has is from last week and nothing from the past 24 hours. I am confused at this point. I even installed Recuva and do not know which files I am looking for that CCleaner may have picked up. With Recuva, it is only finding the SQLite file from last week.

How can I recover my browsing history for firefox from the past 24 hours given the above scenario? There is no reason I shouldn't be able to since I found data from last week (and CCleaner runs daily on startup).

Thank you

As recently as 08/25/2017 everything worked.

When I tried today I found that the button/options are no longer there. I checked the videos I downloaded last week to confirm something has changed.

I am using FireFox 54.0, Windows 8.1 (64-bit), Verizon Fios. I have confirmed the same happens on my Laptop (same parameters), and my wife's computer running Windows 10 (FireFox 54.0, Verizon Fios)

I tried using a gmail account to log into YouTube with the same results. I grabbed another download program for Firefox with no change.

This site recommends http://www.ithemesforests.com/how-to-download-youtube-videos-with-firefox-in-any-format/ But all that does is show "This add-on has been removed by its author." (Note: This link should be removed.)

Any help out there?

Firefox used to be working fine,but ever since the upgrade to version 27.0.1, everything that I do inside the browser lags from time to time, quite frequently. I try to watch a video on Youtube, it lags for a bit in the middle of the video. I try to open a new tab, it lags a bit. I try to scroll down a page, it lags. I try to write an email, it lags while typing. The lag is a few seconds at arbitrary intervals.

I've tried restarting firefox with all addons disabled and it didn't work. What do you suggest I do next?

Hi all,

I'm submitting this question/report because I'm used to some specific behavior on Firefox that doesn't seem to exist anymore and I want to make it happen. As some pre-problem information I know that the showquitwarning setting hasn't been enabled by default for a while but that's always something I've enabled when first installing firefox. I also don't like the option to "Show my windows and tabs from last time", as sometimes I just want to close the tabs and not necessarily always save them.

So what's different now is that in the past I toggled showquitwarning to true and you'd be prompted to see if you want to save your tabs for next time. If you closed the browser using the red X or doing File->Exit your tabs would just pop up the next time you started Firefox. This is the behavior I want, but it's not the behavior I can get. Currently, there's a few things that happen depending on what else you have set (keep in mind all of this is with ShowQuitWarning set to true):

-As I hinted at before, if you set "General -> When Firefox Starts: Show my windows and tabs from last time", your tabs are always saved on quitting and pop up when you start up Firefox again, you get no choice in the matter (and you'll get the Confirm Close popup instead of an option to Save and Close)

Homepage set to Mozilla Firefox Start Page: -If you exit using the red X and "Save and Quit" and startup Firefox again, you get the Mozilla Firefox Start Page and a "Restore Previous Session" is showing at the bottom of the page which when clicked will restore your saved tabs.

-If you use File->Exit and "Save and Quit" and startup Firefox again, your saved tabs from the previous session pop right up

Homepage set to some other page/blank: -If you exit using the red X (and hit "Save and Quit"), on starting up Firefox it goes to your homepage, you are not given an option to restore previous session (but you can select it from History->Restore Previous Session)

-If you use File->Exit and "Save and Quit" and startup Firefox again, your saved tabs from the previous session pop right up

I'd like for the latter behavior in these cases to happen all the time...not sure what changed for Firefox 28 when hitting X instead of File->Exit. I've tested this on 27.0.1 and sessions pop right up any way you exit after hitting Save and Quit. This is preferred to me mostly because I'm so used to it and the behavior just isn't consistent. Having to hit Restore Previous Session from the History Menu or from the Firefox start page (if you even have that start page enabled) is a pain since you already told Firefox you want to save your tabs for next time. What ends up happening is that I forget it's saved when I don't see them pop up and then proceed to think it failed to restore the previous session.

Thanks in advance,

Hello,

I have been having constant problems with Firefox and Windows 8. What will happen is that Firefox will lock up my entire computer piece by piece until I am unable to interact with anything, after 1 - 2 minutes, the system will work again. Checking event logs shows nothing. The system does not crash but simply slows everything down until no movement is possible then it works. I honestly do not know how to fix this and any advice from anyone will be helpful. Below is a list of everything that I have done. It will happen with one tab or multiple tabs. It will happen on ANY site.

Specs: Windows 8.1 Pro 64-Bit AMD FX 8120 CPU 16GB DDR3 1066 120GB SSD Boot Drive 6870 2GB Video Card


Completely reinstalled Windows. - One of the first applications (after drivers of course) was FF. Started happening almost immediately. Upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1 - No Change Disabled HW acceleration - No change Enabled HW acceleration - No Change Changed Flash to click to enable - No change Updated BIOS - No Change Updated video card drivers - No Change Set FF to run as admin - No Change Disabled C State in my CPU - No Change Ran FF in comparability mode - No Change Updated sequentially to other FF versions - No Change

This is pretty infuriating when I am trying to work. I love FF and although I am OK using IE, and have no issues there.

Please help!
