The extension plugin-container.exe wanted access to the internet. The file was located in my Mozzile folder, but I read somewhere that it is malware. Is this file supposed to be there, and is it normal for attempt to receive a connection? Is it safe?

This happened

Just once or twice

If you cannot see the request, please click on the icon next to the address bar.


I didn't have this kind of troubles before until the new version, I'm so frustrated that I'm really thinking to switch to Chrome instead.

And in case someone wonders, there isn't a request icon at ALL.

- Session restore brings up tabs that I had closed before closing Firefox. Sometimes it even selects a tab that I didn't have selected when I closed it.

- Leaking memory like nobody's business. It went from 500 MB to 1.5 GB overnight (i.e. while it was "idling" minimized on the desktop).

- The config.trim_on_minimize setting is missing. Why is this?

- When the memory usage gets above ~1 GB (FYI, this is a guess), I start seeing problems with Firefox displaying web-page graphics and even, in one instance, shutting down text input on a web page (this was within Facebook).

- Randomly crashes for no apparent reason. FYI, this happened after I updated to Firefox 28 as well.

None of these problems ever happened before I upgraded to Firefox 28 and 29. I'm very close to abandoning Firefox altogether if these problems are not resolved promptly and permanently. In other words, I've nearly had enough of this. Whatever happened to "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"?

Upon upgrading from FF 16 to 17, I can still drag the icon that's to the left of the url to the desktop (or even to the XP Quick Launch Bar, Folder Shortcuts, etc.) to create an internet shortcut to the current page. However, with 17 this method produces a shortcut that shows a generic Windows icon instead of a Firefox-page icon. Even though a generic Windows icon normally denotes "no program associated," these still open with FF when double-clicked. But it doesn't look right. (BTW, all the shortcuts created by this method in FF 16 or lower retained the FF-page icon with the upgrade to 17.)

Any ideas why this changed and how to fix it so it looks the same as before?

Pending resolution of this (and another issue) I went back to FF 16, and it works normally again. However, the shortcuts that were created while I had 17 still show the generic Windows icon.

fixed in Firefox 21 - locking this old thread

I've filed a bug report here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1004476 The problem is that after installing Firefox 29 with no profile at all and installing any addon that requires a browser restart (NoScript for e.g.) Firefox restarts OK, but after closing it and trying to open again I get a message: "Firefox is already running".

2nd Update. (Comment by a moderator)
Engineers are working on issues that have been identified.
The known issues are problems with Firefox hanging on closedown resulting in Firefox not restarting unless the hung process is killed.

Workaround ensure Firefox is NOT set to clear History on Close down
Use NewButton New Fx Menu → Preferences → |Privacy| Firefox will: [Remember History v ]

Google, ever helpful, has replaced the mp3 attachment player in gmail with something that apparently only works in Chrome. In other browsers, it blames the browser for not being able to play the attachment, and immediately demands that you download the file (preferable to Drive) and get yourself an app to listen. I just want to listen to my damn voicemail without being forced to do it in Chrome nor to preserve it for all posterity. Has anyone got a workaround for this crap?

locked by a moderator on 2-7-2012 - has outlived its usefulness

In Firefox 3.6.16 (and presumably other earlier versions) one could force FF to offer to remember user ids and passwords for many sites by editing the file ...\Mozilla Firefox\components \nsLoginManager.js to ignore site- requested autocomplete disabling (_isAutocompleteDisabled returns false).

FireFox 4 does not use that file or any similar that I was able to find.

Can the result (FF ignores site attemps to turn off autocomplete) be achieved in some other way or by editing some other file?

So, 1) I uninstalled it from "add or remove programs" in the control panel 2) cleared out the "add-ons" from all the browsers and even 3) searched the registry for "Babylon" and deleted all the traces of it 4) searched C: drive for the keyword "Babylon" and deleted all the folders

But still to my surprise, the search results of about:home in Firefox 11.0 came out of "Babylon"

The Issue.... Coupons.com plugin disapeared after upgrading FF to v21 (from FF Help Menu>About) I then was prompted to install the plugin when i went to print a coupon from coupons.com... the installation shows it succeeds with no issues, however the plugin is still not showing in the plugin list, and of course coupons don't print (You are prompted by coupons.com to download the plugin...over and over again)

How it happened..... I almost never reboot the PC. Before today everything was working fine. I didn't reboot PC, but decided to upgrade FF to latest version (previous was 20.something)... because i was getting a really long (and context insensitive menu when right clicking anything).

The upgrade appeared to run flawlessly, but then the issue with coupons.com became apparent, and upon a quick look in about:plugins, i noticed the coupon.com (coupon printer) plugin is no longer there....

I closed all browsers, uninstalled the Coupons.com plugin (from Add/Remove programs), and verified that Internet Explorer can't print coupons anymore from coupons.com. Then i reinstalled the plugin (from coupons.com) and Internet Explorer was once again able to print coupons. This means the plugin is being installed on the PC, and while Internet Explorer works, Firefox doesn't (since this version 21)
