Firefox will not open. I tried every single troubleshoot recommendation, and it still won't work. I thought it may be under the "corrupt profile data" troubleshoot article, but when I followed the recommendations to change to a new profile, the profile manager would not open or run on my computer--as if it never existed. I tried downloading a different browser, and as soon as I imported my firefox data, it started misbehaving in the exact same way.

This is getting extremely frustrating. Anybody know what to do?

I have tried nearly everything I have seen suggested so far, but nothing seems to work. Firefox started hanging and lagging randomly a few days ago. When scrolling, hovering over buttons, clicking and typing, there tends to be a half-second or 1 second delay. Youtube videos and other video websites are basically unwatchable because they lag so much.

So far I have tried:

- starting firefox in safemode - resetting firefox - using hardware accelleration and not using hardware acceleration to see if there was any changes. - disabling all plugins and extensions and disabling each one-by-one to see if any took up a lot of memory usage. (Firefox memory usage was sometimes over 400 Mb) - downloading a freeware program called "Firemin" which apparently stops memory leaks when used to launch firefox. (Memory usage went from 350-400 Mb to 4-8 Mb !) This helped slightly when watching youtube videos but not with any other hanging and lagging problems.

I'm currently using Firefox 22.0.

Please if you have any suggestions respond because I do not want to have to resort to using Chrome. I am too used to using firefox and don't want to lose my bookmarks.

Why is my Adobe Flash slow and laggy on Firefox, no matter what I try, but works just fine on IE7?

Whenever I watch anything requiring Adobe Flash (a YouTube vid, an anime episode on Crunchyroll, the latest episode of a show on RoosterTeeth's website, etc) on my Firefox (Version 22), it's horribly laggy and slow, with the picture AND sound lagging and 'skipping', and occasionally for YouTube the image will 'pixellate' and/or the sound quality will nosedive. According to the right-click option, my Firefox uses Flash 11.8. However, watching a vid on my Internet Explorer 7, which uses Flash 10.0, produces no such problems; the picture and sound are excellent. This problem has persisted ever since shortly after I first installed and began using Firefox earlier this year, when I (apparently mistakenly) accepted the offer to update my Firefox's Adobe Flash to Version 11 (it kept giving me "your Flash is outdated" messages that I had to click away to watch a vid, and that annoyed me so I wanted to make it stop).


This problem has been plaguing me for several months, and now that RoosterTeeth no longer supports IE7, I am unable to properly watch their new episodes. I have tried nearly everything - disabling Hardware Acceleration (with Firefox AND with Adobe Flash), having other tabs closed, several Flash updates as they become available since this problem's inception, upgrading my graphics driver, desperate prayer to God (and I'm a fairly secular man), EVERYTHING.


Could someone please tell me what is causing this months-running problem and how I could possibly hope to fix it?

Whenever I try to watch any video on youtube, it will not load more than a few seconds at a time. It will stop and stutter and lag for several minutes before it continues to load. This was not the case as little as 3 months ago. I have update flash and my computer and internet speeds have not changed. Even pausing the video and waiting will not usually allow it to load past about 3 to 10 seconds.

Hi there,

I'm trying to clear all of the browsing history from my Firefox but it's not working. The function clears all of my searches and website preferences and passwords bar one or two websites. I've ticked all of the options for clearing history, apart from 'form and search history' as it won't let me tick this box. I also deleted all of my bookmarks, ran a CC cleaner and STILL there's search history when I start to type into the bar at the top. When I go into my history --> show all history having cleared it, it says that there is nothing there...

For example.. when I start to type P in the bar at the top.. UK Parliament immediately comes up. And my bar at the top of the page isn't one of those where you can just automatically search via Google so I don't think its doing that!...

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox but even so some websites are STILL there! How can I track these websites down and get rid of them?

Thanks for your help!!

I've been using Firefox as my default browser for at least 8 years (after switching over from Netscape Navigator). I've never had any problems before, and I love Firefox! Per your info., I've assumed that FF automatically updates to the latest version (it's always been set in my Preferences to do that). But after I got up to Version 10.0, it apparently stopped doing that! When I would check the version, it would say "You are on the update release version" (paraphrase) and then the "checking for updates" circle would just spin.

Three days ago (June 28, 2013), I tried to go to what I assumed was a trusted site (Obama's Organizing for Action) (from a link on an e-mail notice), and I got a notice that FF considered this an untrusted site(?) The next day (June 29, 2013), I tried to reach another trusted site (via Google), the California Lifeline site (phone company), and I got the same "untrusted site" notice(!)

At this point, I decided to see if my FF was up to date. I checked info. on your site and found out that the latest version was 22.0! (Why wasn't it updated for all the versions after 10.0?!) So I downloaded the latest version. When I opened the new version, FF was terribly slow!! It takes forever to load websites or to switch between sites, or to do just about anything! THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE! I've read many articles on what could be wrong and how to potentially fix it, but I'd rather start here! Please help as soon as possible! Thanks much in advance!

I know that this problem has been asked here for many times. I have gone through many of possible solutions but without any luck. The problem is only on Firefox and Chrome. IE has no problem with playing at all. That means there's no problem with Internet connection. I updated my Graphic Driver to latest version (Intel Graphics HD 2000). I updated the Adobe Flash to the lastest version 11,8,800,94. Tried to restart Firefox to default. Turned off hardware acceleration on Flash. Still no change. I simply can't believe that it could so complicated more over when it worked a couple of weeks ago.

Ever since updating Firefox/Mac to v.22, the built-in Firefox PDF viewer won't open PDFs. Any PDF link automatically downloads the file.

I've set the Applications control for PDFs to "Preview in Firefox". I've also reset the mimeTypes.rdf file, but none of this has helped. The files download to my HD. Firefox won't open PDFs on its own. I've had to resort to installing the Shubert plugin to get PDFs to display. It works, but I'd rather get Firefox's native reader to work.

Is there, perhaps, a setting under about:config that might need changed? I don't have to enable Java, do I?

Firefox 22/Mac OSX 10.6.8

Thanks.
