hey all I need some help. I'm fairly computer literate but my hp envy with windows 8.1 running a shell for the start menu to act like windows 7 keeps making this horrid sound. It happens every 10 minutes. the jing vid plays the sound at about 2:53 second mark. If anyone can help me with this I would be grateful. BTW I have all windows sounds turned off. Sound happens when firefox is connected to internet. I have webroot and spybot so I don't know what this can be but I am losing my mind hearing it. Not joining live hangouts etc because of it. I may have mentioned that this happens in chrome as well but it does not. I have refreshed my firefox and it is a temporary fix. I don't know what the catalyst is that causes it to start again.

I was trying Firefox Hello. I sent the link to my friend via IM client and he joined the conversation. He was able to hear my voice but I wasn't able to hear his voice. To confirm that the problem was not on his side, I tried it with my few other friends but to no avail. What could be the reason behind this?

I've completely tested my headphones they're all working fine. I've tried other browsers too. But the same problem. Any suggested fixes?

Updates keep coming almost daily. However, I open 4 tabs with different info and the browser crashed and shuts down attempting to reopen and reload. This has been going on for at least the last 4 updates. Wouldn't it be more efficient if they fixed and tested the update properly before rushing to a quick new release? They've been releasing patches over a worn out NEW outfit.

The 'Pin It' button for pinterest has disappeared from my toolbar and I am not having any success adding it back on.. Having recent issues with Adobe Flash, I reset Firefox settings and that's probably when it was removed. In an attempt to simply add it again, I tried searching for it as an option in the Firefox 'get add-ons', but cannot find it--which I find unusual because it's a very popular add-on.

I tried to add it from the Pinterest, following their specific instructions for Firefox, but if it has been successfully installed, I cannot find it on the toolbar and it does not appear in the 'additional tools and features' that I navigate to via the 'customize' option.

I noticed recently that my browser looked odd when opened, it made my task bar at the bottom of the screen disappear. I checked my settings option and clicked on full screen, it showed it was turned on but the browser went back to normal, so when I turn full screen off the browser goes back to the messed up version. Then when on youtube, I want to make the video full screen but it no longer goes to complete full screen. the top of my browser page is still visible, like the address bar and tab bar and all that is still there. How do I fix this?

Mate just tried 'calling' me on Firefox Hello, message popped up, ding noises sounded, but I couldn't click the 'answer' button, but kept dinging. She sent me a link to chat, but got an error message saying Hello only works on browsers that support WebRTC. Weird, right? Try it in safe mode, same results. Try it with a fresh reset, same thing. I tried 'calling' my mate, an error message says she's unavailable. Tried making a room, it works, sent her the link, she gets the same message about Hello is for WebRTC browsers. I'm currently on version 41.0b4. Help?

I have 32-bit and 64-bit Dell desktops, both running Windows 7. Beginning with version 41, Firefox either will not download, install, and launch, or else doesn't recognize the security certificates of certain common web sites (e.g., amazon.com, facebook.com, firefox.org (!)) and displays them as text only. On the 32-bit machine, I was okay through version 42.x, but when I tried to update to version 43.0, Firefox isn't recognized as legitimate software. I am running McAfee virus scan 8.8, in case that's relevant.

I hope you can solve this problem, because I much prefer Firefox to Internet Explorer, which I'm forced to use when Firefox isn't working.

Thanks.

Every time I try to access some web pages on Tumblr, using Firefox Developers Edition 43.0a2, it also occurs on the normal Firefox version, the tabs crashes after a few seconds, when staying on that page. One example is http://bovrilcat.tumblr.com/mywriting . I then tried loading the page on my Windows Phone 8.1 (Internet Explorer), and using data from my wireless carrier just in case if it was due to a problem with my home internet, and it worked perfectly. So, I tried to see on my laptop where this tab crashing is occurring if it happens on other browsers. Well, the problem does not occur on Microsoft Edge Browser/Internet Explorer on Windows 10, nor does the problem occur on Opera. I have had Firefox set as the default web browser ever since I bought the laptop. The same problem occurs at the college computer when using Firefox. Is this something to do with the browsers rendering platform?

Suddenly, I can not pull up Firefox. it is version 45.0. I was on the day before yesterday, and I was scanning through the support pages because I want to block the thing that stops Firefox from going to another page, but I never figured it out. Probably did something by mistake. Message: "Firefox is not responding" - blank browser screen. When I follow "We've made some educated guesses about your current browser and operating system" on the support page it brings up blank fields.

I did try to download a newer version a couple of weeks ago, but the download did not go through. I am able to pull up Safari, but I prefer Firefox. Running Mac OS 10.10.5.

Is there a phone number for Mozilla support? Looked and could not find it. Thankyou.

Yahoo's webpage locks up the Firefox 45.0b6 every morning for about a minute. Freeze the whole GUI, nothing works until it releases. This has happened in the past, goes on for months until some update changes things, then it works fine for awhile, but usually something else stops working, a never ending cycle with something always broken.

I use both Firefox and Chrome. When I use Google as my search engine in Chrome I never face the bane of submitting Captchas or being flagged as a spam bot.

But on Firefox I get these captchas regularly and they're killing me. Is there a way around them? Is there a way I can prove permanently to Google that I'm a trusted IP?

I suspect that this is a nifty way of Google driving users away from Firefox. If you hate these captcha traps why would you persist in using Firefox (their thinking, perhaps)?
