Firefox latest update has disabled my webcams because the plugin that enables them is not verified. So I have no way to view my security system unless I set up on another browser. So you must not want Firefox to be used for this type of service. All was well until the latest update was installed.

Yesterday I noticed a folder on my desktop named "Old Firefox Data". In that folder were copies of two of my profiles (I have at least a dozen profiles set up). They are both dated 11/11/15 and timestamped about 35 minutes apart. I've researched it a bit and the information I got was that it is a folder created when one 'Refreshes Firefox'. I am fairly certain that I've never used that function. This happened just before or after Fx upgraded itself from v42 to v43.

A user of one of my extensions posted a message to my support forum that the same thing happened to him and he swears he never 'Refreshed Firefox'. in fact, he doesn't know how to do it even if he wanted. He said he got up to answer the phone and when he came back, his computer had re-booted, the folder appeared on his desktop and all his extensions were missing from Fx along with any customization of the UI.

Refreshing Firefox is not something that can easily be done accidentally. In fact, I can't even find a button to do this with Fx v43.

Is there any other way for that folder to be created other than 'Refreshing Firefox'?

Note: I realize there are similar questions on this board about this, but none of the answers really provide a satisfactory solution.

I have used Firefox for many years but tonight it is severely letting me down. After restarting my machine a favourite program no longer was visible, Readability, which I rely upon. When I attempted to download it several times Firefox kept refusing to reload it even though I have used it for many years with Firefox, saying there was some kind of a conflict between it and the company. When I attempted to seek help from this Forum, it started asking me for login information which it then repeatedly rejected. So I have created an entirely new login and hope that this one works. At the moment I'm extremely frustrated and contemplating leaving Firefox altogether, which would be a real nuisance as I have many bookmarks etc. It is all set up and I don't want to leave it but will be forced to do so if someone cannot resolve these issues. What has gone wrong with Firefox?

Hi everybody,

I am having a little problem with Firefox on my Ubuntu, and I was wondering if someone could help me. The problem is that my Firefox started to act very slow after the v43.0 update. I am using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64bit.

Every page that I try to open takes about 5-30 seconds to load, and sometimes it doesn't load at all (displays that connection was restarted, or blank tab). I tought it was problem with my OS, so I started up Windows Vista in virtualbox with Firefox v42 (it wasn't updated yet), and went to compare it. And really the Firefox 42 on my Vista in Virtualbox was A LOT faster when opening pages (almost instantly) than Firefox 43.0 on my host OS - Ubuntu.

Then I updated the Firefox on Vista virtualbox from 42 to the version 43.0.2., and it was OK, the speed was the same as before. So no problems on the Virtualbox with the 43. But on host OS, my Ubuntu 14.04, Firefox 43.0 is very slow when loading any page. I read something about nvidia network manager on Firefox reddit, but I am not sure if I do have that program on my Ubuntu. I have laptop with optimus technology and I am using only Intel GPU, so Nvidia should not be the problem, right?

I also checked for updates, to see is there Firefox v43.0.2. for Linux also, but no new updates were found. I am huge fan of Firefox, but this is annoying, browsing the web is simply imoposible. It's even worse when you know that everything it's working fine on Virtualbox, but not on host OS. I tried opening my test pages on Ubuntu browser (based on Chromium) and it worked ok, the load speed was almost the same as on virtualbox. So that leads me to the conclusion - is it something wrong with Ubuntu or Firefox, and can it be fixed?

Note: The problem is that Firefox is slow to "contact" the site. It's like it is testing does website even exists, or does the connection works or something like that. So the problem is in contacting the page, beacuse sometimes it showes nothing, just blank tab, or error message: "Connection was restarted".

I would really be greaful for any help. Thanks!

I have noticed that since the new way of displaying status has been implemented in FF many web sites (usually questionable ones) are able to hide the box that shows the web link that one is hovering over, I cannot find a setting to force the links to be dispayled and this makes FF very vulnerable.

I have been having an issue with Firefox freezing "sporadically" on my PC. In a nutshell, Firefox freezes typically once per boot-up cycle. By freeze, I mean that my whole PC locks up and is unusable, no clicking is allowed for any task, but my mouse is free to scroll around. Once the computer unfreezes, typically under 1 minute later, whatever action I had taken will pop up (including but not limited to ctrl-alt-del). This freezing only occurs on certain websites, and only after boot-up. The frequent problem I have isolated is yahoo mail, where the browser becomes stuck on "read s.yimg.com".

As far as I know, this only occurs shortly after boot up. If I magically avoid culprit sites, the PC eventually reaches a state where I have yet to witness a freeze. So say I get lucky on a few websites and edit a word doc for an hour, when I eventually load yahoo mail, it may NOT freeze.

I am currently running Firefox version 43.01. I had been using 36.04 until I updated to 43.0, and the problem started occurring on 36.04. I ran Firefox via safe mode, and also manually disabled all add-ons, but the problem persisted.

Also gave google chrome a shot, and I did not come across this same issue.

Anybody see this before? Curious for any insight you are able to provide, and a possible solution. While it may seem like a stupid question (do stupid questions actually exist?), could this be a virus? My gut tells me no, but I am no computer specialist.

Thanks!
