I'm not sure exactly where this question should go, so apologies if I picked the wrong category. As far as I can tell, it fits into 'other problems': So I was getting an 'unresponsive script on page, do you want to stop it' dialogue for a Facebook page I frequent. Got sick of telling FF to stop the script every time, so I checked the 'do not ask again' box, hoping it would automatically just stop the script whenever it became a problem. Well, it's working a little too well. Now the page loads zero content. I'm just wondering how to 'undo' checking that box. Is there maybe a line in about:config I can look for, some setting I can adjust, to reset the 'do not ask again' option on 'stop unresponsive script' dialogues? Thanks in advance for any help!

I run Ubuntu 10.10 LTSP server/client network and DO NOT want to upgrade Ubuntu... too much trouble, nobody can guarantee it will not hammer my LTSP install and besides, Unity is awful. I need newer Firefox due to some frequently used web pages, so I need an install procedure that will not hammer anything. It's a mission critical user environment. If anybody has positive experience with Firefox upgrade in similar environment please advise.

Normally, when Firefox encounters a link with a pseudo-protocol that it doesn't know how to process (such as iTunes store links, which Apple only wants you to open with iTunes), usually Firefox puts up a "Launch Application" dialog each time, which allows the user to choose a program to use for the URL (or, for the way I usually use this dialog, to cancel the attempt to act on the URL completely) - unless you check the "Remember my choice" option, in which case it will stop asking, but put an entry on the Applications page of the Options dialog, in case you want to change the chosen action in the future. However, in the case of the new Windows store URLs, I don't get that dialog and I don't have an entry in the Options; I automatically get thrown off the Desktop and into the Windows store app every time, with no obvious way to change this behavior. What's different about these URLs (or about Firefox's reaction to them) that won't allow me to modify or abort this action?

When I open Firefox there is a box in the middle of the screen where I usually place items that I want to look up.

I am unable to re install Firefox on my Windows 8 PC. Since yesterday trying to launch Firefox causes my PC to crash and then as it shuts down I am advised to search online for bad_spool_header info

After I did (both Chrome and Explorer work) I found a" search by conduit" add on which I was able to uninstall and completely (?) clean out from my system I also ran several malware tests and cleaned out my registry keys. The computer works fine only issue is with Firefox. Since Firefox immediately launches after install and this causes PC to crash I am stuck in an endless loop and cannot even go into safe mode for Firefox, attempting to do that to stop the launch caused not only a crash but a weird vibrating noise from PC.

Please note I use Win 8 as old style Win programs from regular desktop/start menu, not via app/charms interface (in case you are sending me instructions). Hope you can help me get my Firefox back!

Hello Everyone,

On my company I'm working on a replacement of 100 virtual Windows machines. The users on the old virtual machines are complaining about the FireFox profile is overwriting the max profile size of the windows profile... Some users have moved the FF profile to a different location and has a size near 300MB. On the new virtuals I really want to move the FF profile automatically on startup or something. So users don't have the problem with the profile size. Is there any way to do this? Maybe with a startup of logon script? Or a policy setting.

I hope someone can help me with this.

I was running Firefox just fine until today, when I noticed that NO websites I went to would display any graphics at all. Not even the homepage of firefox where the download link is, the firefox logo that normally is there does not display. Cannot see the google logo in google either for that matter. I never changed any settings at all. I was just watching a YouTube video, and then, loaded another site, the graphics never displayed (at first I thought it was just a problem with the website so I ignored it, but then I went to about 7 other websites and each and every single one of the gave me the same problem. Like I said, I never changed any settings, nor did I download any plugins. Im actually typing this on another browser because it's annoying me.

Reset does not work, new account on my email doesnt do either. "Attempt limit exceeded." is all I get from firefox. I am one step from getting rid of it after many, many years of our relationship. I pitty that firefox is getting slower and slower, I get more and more problems, and still hang on to it. Today I couldt find any useful help. Its quite disturbing. Maybe it has come to "Attempt limit exceeded."?

Setting up five new Acer Veriton E430G Windows 7 x64 desktop machines for work, each has been Windows live updated to latest spec as of end of March '14. All were brand new factory pre-installed Windows 7 x64, all have had the same set of software individually installed, Adobe Flash player, Adobe Shockwave, Acrobat Reader, QuickTime, Oracle Java 8x32 and x64, Picasa, 7-Zip, LibreOffice, Skype and of course Firefox 28.0. All have the exact same behaviour in that when the "Welcome to Firefox" first run page displays, it displays in text only with a large grey box "No video with supported format and MIME type found. If you go to Tools\Add-Ons\Get Add-ons, the internal page displays in full text only as well - no graphics, same problem when you load "Plugins" page and click "Check to see if your plugins are up to date", the following page/tab loads as text only.

After taking one of the machines brand new out of box and creating an Acronis snapshot of the entire drive [factory install before first run] using it as a test install, I played around with a number of software / driver / updates / Firefox add-ins scenarios trying to get to the bottom of this. I have come to a dead end in as much as all runs great within Firefox, web pages from all internal pages and many on-line websites render correctly when I load a previous version of Firefox [v26.0 or v25] rather than the latest v28.0 onto each of the machines, I tried v27.01 & v27.0, these gave the same text based pages. This has been replicated successfully on the other four machines with all of the above listed latest software versions installed [no AntiVirus software installed yet as not fully in use in Office yet], change nothing else other than load the latest version v28.0 Firefox and the problem reappears.

I did for the sake of completeness test the brand new factory install just past 'first boot set-up' and first time desktop hello, let everything settle and installed Firefox v28.0, [tested with v27.01 & v27.0] this too exhibits the exact same text only page rendering on internal Firefox pages. Yet again, over install Firefox v26.0, clear history and the same pages start loading correctly.

I am open to suggestions regards a fix for this as I really do not want to leave the machines with old version Firefox installed on each desktop. I would also prefer not to allow each member of staff to install Google Chrome. The on-line web pages that were found to be loading as text only within Firefox 28.0 were tested and rendered correctly within Chrome 33.0.1750.154 and IE 11, this would indicate something to be clashing with Firefox or Firefox not behaving with something else. I would like to get this resolved.

Since using Firefox on Windows 7, I have been encountering crashes and hangs that all exhibit the same symptoms. Large blocks of the screen go black. Moving the mouse restores the images, then they go black again. It happens most quickly when scrolling through images (like from a Google image search). Sometimes I will kill FF, but other times it crashes before I can kill it. The Windows eventvwr doesn't record the crash.

I've reinstalled FF from scratch. Reimaged my machine with Windows 7. Bought another laptop installed Windows 7 from scratch and the crashes continue. I've started Firefox in safe mode, still crashes. It usually takes a couple of hours of use before the video goes black and it crashes, almost like a memory leak.

This has been going on literally for months.

Based on a problem someone else here reported, I've pasted the last few crash ID's below.
