Firefox is hanging at sites like www.kongregate.com which use Shockwave Flash player. I get the "unresponsive script" error and nothing is helping. I've already reinstalled Firefox and Shockwave. I've tried disabling hardware acceleration and Adobe Flash protected mode (it was already disabled both in Add-ons and about:config). I've tried changing dom.max_script_run_time to 20. Everything works fine when I disable Shockwave but then I can't play most of the browser based games. Then again it might be the sites fault. I'm not sure what else to do. Help would be appreciated.

Last revision of Firefox disallowed Garmin plug in that is essential for downloading info to gps unit. I must have this plugin and it must be allowed. Internet Explorer is too slow and frequently crashes. I really like Firefox, but if I cannot use it for this function-it is of no use to me. It did run ok until I down loaded the latest version of Firefox. Can I get to old version back or are you willing to undo this fiasco?

I've double-checked that no other program is deleting the history, and there are no scheduled tasks running that would do it. I have Firefox set to KEEP history. I DID have a crash at one point - could that have corrupted a user file?? How do I create that corrupted file to check if that is it?

Thank you!

I have a desktop running Win 10.I bought a new Lenovo Thinkpad running Win10 Pro.I created a sync account in FF to copy all my bookmarks,add ons ,and preferences from my desktop to my Thinkpad.This worked really well,BUT...I use my desktop for most of my work and make most of my book mark additions and deletions from the desktop.The problem is that my desktop disconnects from sync when I close my browser and when I log back in,it copies the bookmarks from the Lenovo Thinkpad,so any additions,rearrangements,and deletions I made on the desktop are now gone(sometimes this can be several days worth).How do I make the desktop the computer that I want other devices to sync from? This is very frustrating and unproductive.

I have two problems: 1) Firefox crashes after I've been online awhile but I am able to send the report and refresh and get back to where I was online. 2) I get an Adobe plugin crash for all videos on FB. I can play videos on You Tube though. I believe this Adobe Plugin crash is something I can change in my settings but I don't remember how to do it. I tried changing the disable scripting settings but that didn't work. Reloading the page after sending the crash report with the ULR does not help. I have tried to refresh firefox settings and restate in safe mode to no avail. I recently updated to windows NT4 from windows 7 and I think that's when the plugin problems started and the maybe the crashing too. I may have deleted Quicktime plugin too. Using XP. I have plenty of memory though.

Here is the adobe plugin crash report: Crash ID: bp-7d662fa5-2a29-4a98-a7d9-636702160319

The latest version of Firefox that shows as available to me is 43.0.1 I have installed and re-installed it several times.

I have Vista, 32 bit.

I also keep getting Flash error messages, and cannot update that either, assuming that problem is related to this.

As an example: In my browser (in green) it shows a 'padlock' Mozilla foundation (US) [in black text] https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions

the https:// portion is so faint I can hardly see it, the mozilla.org is darker then the rest of it gets faint and unreadable again. In the search box it says "search" but is so faint I can hardly see the word. What I type in is fine though. When I am on a site that I need to fill in with information, such as name, address, etc there is usually a box to type in and you can't even see where that box is.

I can't figure out why this has occurred suddenly. Can anyone help?

I have an application at work for which I need Java 7. The newer versions of Java do not work with it. I've been using Firefox 41.0.2 just fine with Java 7R17 (32 bit), but now that I have upgraded to Firefox 43.0.1, Java 7R17 no longer works. Even if I just go to the "verify java" page (https://www.java.com/verify/), the Java plugin in Firefox locks up and after a few seconds I get the following pop up window:

Warning: Unresponsive plugin

may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the plugin now, or you can continue to see if the plugin will complete.

Don't ask me again Continue Stop Plugin

I encountered this in Firefox 42 also, and was forced to roll back to 41, which I will be doing now as well. Please let me know if there is a way to fix this.

Currently, I'm using Firefox 43.0.1 and if the browser crashes and is restarted, it tries to open dozens of windows, which most of them I already had closed long *before* the crash. Before my update to v43 (sorry, I don't know which version I had previously - maybe something like v24 or so), the browser restored only the windows that where opened during the crash. Now, my system freezes for dozens of seconds, producing a lot of network transfer (because every opened window loads one tab and if it is YouTube or some other heavy website, you can imagine what happens - especially if it plays sound!), and almost kills my system. What did the Firefox Developers changed? How can I turn this dump feature off again?

Firefox crashes in all instances, including in Safe Mode. I have tried a clean re-install several times. I cannot access the Profile Manager (also get a crash). Notably, there was no "Firefox" folder in the Application Support folder. I've already moved on to Safari but am really just curious what happened. On my last Mac (I bought a new one 2 months ago), if I opened Firefox, it would just continually open a new instance, crash and repeat over and over until my whole computer crashed or I rebooted the whole system. Now, if I quit Firefox, it politely stays put, but still will not ever open. The crash report reads as follows; thanks in advance for your help!:

Since yesterday I have suddenly a problem with Firefox.

When I try to upload a photo to Flickr or Coppermine (installed at a webspace provider) it fails. For a long time Firefox tries to connect to the sites and then gives the message the connection was re-initialized.

What have I done to try to solve this:

- Checked if there were updates for the plug-ins I use.

- I cleared the cache of Firefox, did not help.

- I tried to start to start Firefox in "safe mode" to see if one of the plugi-ns caused the problems, but that didn't solve the problem.

- I re-installed Firefox (after de-installing it), sadly the problem was still there.

- I disabled all the plug-ins on the new install, no result.


I loaded Internet Explorer and I could upload photo's to both Flickr and Coppermine without any problem.

I loaded Firefox on another computer within my home network and I could upload photo's without any problems to Flickr and Coppermine (btw all installs of Firefox are of version 43.0.1).

Anyone an idea what might be wrong here?

Regards, Rob.
