This has been going on for awhile, I've made posts about similar issues but I have yet to hear anything. My Firefox is "broken" I guess that would be the perfect term for, At least my Firefox. I experience slowdowns on all webpages, it crashes, it freezes, I get what seems like an unlimited amount of "Unresponsive scripts" which forces me to use task manager to end the Firefox process because waiting for it to debug itself or letting the script load does nothing at all. Even the great check-able "Do not remind me again box" does nothing, I don't even bother checking the box because if there's another unresponsive script, even though its the same error the notification pops up still.

Firefox's memory usage spikes from 500k-900k all the way to 2million, I have exited Firefox and have also tried to use the task manager to end the process when it spikes because Firefox is unusable when it gets that high. Even though when I completely exit out of the Firefox program and use task manager to end the process, If I start Firefox back up the memory usage will climb back to where it was which is usually around the 1.5mil range then from there it goes to as high as 2.3mil then just crashes on me.

This has been going on for awhile now and nothing seems to be worked on.

Hi, Since yesterday (August 19, 2016) Netflix stop working and I get a message at the top of the page saying "Firefox is installing components needed to play audio or video, please try again later". I just called Netflix support and they say that recently they stop using Silverlight and moved to HTML5, they advised me to update Firefox to the latest version, I was running on 47.0.1 but now after installing the update I'm running on 48.0.1 but still get the same error message. I can watch Netflix with Internet Explorer but not with Firefox anymore! For years was working fine I am wondering what's going on, can you help?

I recently refreshed Firefox browser & found it had been taken over by Speedbit Search. When I have been using Google and then pressed the Home button to return to the Firefox homepage this was when I found Speedbit Search homepage. So I have been unable to access my Firefox bookmarks, passwords, history. I refreshed again and got back the Firefox homepage without the bookmarks and saved passwords, but I think Speedbit is still on the computer. Thank you, nick8000

I have set Firefox v48.0 to not record history in order to effectively achieve private browsing and thus enhance privacy. The only thing that now appears in History is a "moz-extension" in the following format: moz-extension://f111111b1-1111-1fae-1111-ef11111d11be/background.html. I've replaced each of the figures by a "1" so as to simply illustrate the structure. I don't know and have not been able to find out just what the moz-extension is and what purpose it serves here.

Okay, so I'm gonna start with this. My Lenovo laptop is only a year old, yet it's pretty corrupted by this program called Royal Raid[another question for another time] but to get to the point. Every time Mozilla has a not responding page, it either closes itself when it's bad or gets back from it. But this time, it was something that I had come across before but can't seem to solve. So see, one of my pages wasn't responding to a script[i'm not a tech guru, i don't know what that is, sorry] so I tried to press the stop script button to get back to my YouTube video. Then Mozilla stopped responding, but the sound from my video kept playing.[ A common problem i have, no biggie, right? Wrong.] I tried closing it. It wouldn't. Then the whole "close it or wait" tab came up and i closed it. But even then, i could still hear the sound from my video on YouTube STILL playing. Like i said, this happened to me before. I muted and waited until it stopped. When it did, i was pressing the Mozilla icon a LOT. [So much that i had tabs come up three separate times!] So then, i waited until all the tabs came, closed every one of them except the first, then waited. The homepage came up. Although i was confused i went to the menu and pressed Reopen closed windows which usually replaced my restore session tab since it never worked anymore, and it always brought back my tabs. Problem solved? Nope. Instead, it opened my OTHER closed tabs that i had closed WHILE trying to get my session back. Please don't tell me I'm screwed because i have stuff for school that i had on that session and i REALLY NEED IT! Please help. [P.S. like the title says my restore session tab has been grayed out. And not just now. I mean for a while]

Windows 10, all drivers up to date, latest version Firefox, only compatible addons running up to date, plugins all latest up to date Doesn't matter, 1 tab open or my usual 25+, after 32 or so minutes Firefox crashes quietly, closes slowly (I monitor memory and clean cache), then reboots itself after another 10+ seconds. I configged it to default hold extra cache (20) to try to help, no luck. Most sites operate fine on my tabs although like always memory usage creeps up slightly. But just now, to crash with only ONE tab open and sometimes linking and opening just 1 more from my email, STILL crashed. Strange. Never happened before WIN 10 and the update from maybe Firefox 44 to 48.

I have purposely been using an older version because I will lose access to some add-ons that are CRITICAL for my ability to use certain sites. I am aware of all of the risks, and I still want to do this.

While this link ( https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ ) offers a list of all the older versions, there are so many of each version, how would anyone know which version of a specific version # to choose. And then once you do choose (closing eyes and pointing to one, lol), there are so many files listed, how would one know which one is the exe file?

The above site gives no step by step instructions. So, I'm lost.

I have spent time searching, but I apparently I don't know how to phrase my question to get the info I need to choose the version of the version. (For example, do I get version 51 w/just numbers or the funnelcake version of 51s?) And then, which file to I click on to get the exe file? (FYI, 51 is the last version to support the add-ons I still want/need. And I have looked for similar add-ons, but there are none available.)

Thank you in advance for your help!

FF48 was working well. I updated to FF49 and experienced the first episodes of FF not responding. Didn't change anything but just rolled back to FF48. All was fine again. When FF50 released, I updated and experienced the same thing -- FF not responding. Again, did not change a thing but rolled it back to FF48 and all is fine again.

FF49 and FF50 go into this unresponsive mode after I either view a flash program or view something on YOUTUBE. Again -- this does not happen in FF48.

This "not responding" registers as an application hang in the windows system -- event id 1002. It does not show up as a crash and does not generate a crash report.

I am running in Windows 10 64bit.

Due to prior problems, I uninstalled and installed a new Firefox about a month ago. After that, I started getting error messages when I attempted to open the browser. (See attached image.) In the past week, Firefox has had more progressive problems. It started out with just a slow loading of pages, but this became prevalent with every page I attempted to load. I tried using the Refresh option, but this only lasts for about 20 minutes. I scanned my system with Super Antispyware, Malwarebytes and Norton 360 and removed all threats found. (Then I removed Malwarebytes to lower the number of security programs on my system.)

The crashes started about 3 days ago so I went to Support and tried to follow those steps. Nothing changed in Safe Mode. Nothing improved and in fact, things got worse. When I again uninstalled Firefox, I thought I was "wiping the slate clean", but this time, it reloaded what I'd have before. (The first time I uninstalled and re-installed, the new "copy" didn't have my bookmarks. Last night, when I re-installed, all the bookmarks were there.) Additionally, now there is a tiny red vertical line on each tab that I have open. It is to the right of the X to close the tab and appears with every tab I open. Also, since this second re-install, the browser keeps crashing. Last night, it gave me more than 6 chances to submit a crash report within a half hour. This morning, in the past 2.5 hours, I have submitted 4 crash reports. If you can't fix this, I'll have to use a different browser. I know that in this time frame, when I used Edge, there was only 1 crash report and when I've used Chrome, there have been none. I would prefer to use Firefox, but not if these situations are going to continue. At the present, the image that I want to upload regarding the error message mentioned in the first paragraph has still not loaded, but I'm going to submit this. I have no idea what will happen.

P.S. When I looked at your "educated guesses", I discovered that it said my OS was Windows 7. No! It's Windows 10.
