I have used Mozilla for longer than INternet Explorer and think it's great. However, since installing Webroot Security Firefox has routinely started crashing. Not always in the same place or with certain sites, but randomly. I emailed Webroot who said it's not a problem they have encountered, but they issue reguar updates - blah blah. I usually use Norton which is fine, but we have so many PCs / Laptops at home it made sense to buy a bigger licence product.

DOM Storage is becoming used more often for tracking purposes, so I would like it to be cleared when Firefox closes. This link says it can only be cleared under certain conditions: http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/DOM:Storage#Storage_location_and_clearing_the_data

The "Clear history when Firefox closes" Settings in Options -> Privacy does not have a checkbox for DOM Storage.

Setting dom.storage.enabled in about:config to "false" affects all sites. Some sites I've visited *require* DOM Storage to be enabled for those sites to function.

Does enabling one of the checkboxes in "Clear history when Firefox closes" clear DOM Storage already? Can DOM Storage be allowed only for specific sites like regular cookies can? Is there any built-in (non-addon) way to clear or control DOM Storage automatically?

Like many people I suck at typing. For some reason, a certain accidental keystroke combo makes me go back the to the previous page, thereby losing everything I typed, such as form data or forum comments. This happens randomly and I NEVER use keyboard shortcuts while browsing because I always use the mouse except when typing. I really, really want to disable all keyboard shortcuts but there is no option to do this. What do I do? Go back to Exploder? I hope not!

This happened

A few times a week

When Firefox 4 (final) was released I tried it on Windows 7 and it worked fine. I decided to downgrade back to Windows XP 64 on the same machine and found Firefox would usually unexpectedly close roughly 5 to 10 seconds after launch, with no error message or crash report. If I open it several times it works fine eventually, as if it does not close after about 15 seconds it doesn't prematurely close at all.

I occasionally crash Firefox after downloading a file. It does not happen every time. In fact a crash seems to "reset" it and it won't crash again for some hours. Then the next day, or later that evening I will try to download a file (any file can trigger it) and the browser will crash again.

I've taken all the steps I can find about crashes from the support site and nothing has worked. Since the error isn't very repeatable I can't just try in safe mode or limited addons/plugins due to the aforementioned "reset" period I always seem to get afterwards. And I really don't want to be browsing all day without my addons, it's defeating the purpose of using the browser.

Any help would be much appreciated. Let me know if any other information is required. Thank you.

I can't figure out how to enable Japanese in Firefox. Since following existing tutorials yielded no positive results, I tried installing the latest Java, but that only made things worse. Now I have two problems:

I still can't view Japanese characters. I can't uninstall the Java Deployment Toolkit plugin.

The tutorials I've found on uninstalling the plugin don't work because I don't have the options they say to use. I'm using Firefox version 24.0 on Windows XP.

I need to import passwords from an old version of Firefox (3..0.5) into version 28.0. I have read the other threads, but they refer to signons.sqlite which I do not have, instead there is a signons3.txt (which does appear to contain valid details but with encrypted names/passwords. I do have a key3.db however. What would be the best way to import them, preferably without uninstalling V28, installing 3.0.5, porting the necessary files, then upgrading repeatedly until the signons.sqlite is created?

Firefox is not responding to scroll requests sent by my Lenovo USB optical mouse via the Scrollpoint. (FYI the Scrollpoint functions pretty much like the Trackpoint on a Thinkpad keyboard, giving it 360 degree scrolling much more fluidly than any wheel on an ordinary wheel mouse.) The Scrollpoint commands are recognized quite well in just about every other program I use, including word processors, email programs, and especially other browsers such as Opera. I have, in fact, switched to Opera as my main browser until this feature issue is resolved in Firefox. Thank you for your support.

Every once in awhile after closing Firefox 3.6.13 the process continues to run. The way I discover this is my CPU temperature monitor is increasing from 36C to 50C, so I open the Task Manger and see that it is using 50% of the CPU, slowing down the computer. I am running XP Professional 64 bit SP2 with all the latest updates on an Intel E8400 3.0GHz overclocked to 3.6GHz and 4GB dual channel DDR2-1066 at 800MHz. This happens only occasionally, maybe once or twice a month. I just end the task and the temperature of the CPU drops and everything is normal again.

This was most recent website visited and when it automatically redirected to the next video in line, it froze the mouse. I tried to launch the task manager at which point it locked out the keyboard.

(This PC is a Dell Precision T3500 w/ 6G of RAM running WinXP Pro x64, there is no rationale for this kind of incompetence.)

This happens WAY TOO OFTEN, like more than 50% of visits to video oriented sites like youtube etc

With "Accept Cookies From Sites" unchecked, I am getting about 10 or 20 ad cookies every 5 or 10 seconds. What kinda bs is this?

I just read that the Windows Presentation Foundation plug-in ( as listed below) is a .net security update from Microsoft meant for Internet Explorer that Microsoft who has no apologies and says is malicious and can not me removed. I am able to disable it. Hopefully this will be sufficient.
