I've been using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and had immediately installed Opera as that was the browser I was used to but I quickly noticed that my cookies would automatically be removed when I shutdown making browsing a problem, so I reverted back to Firefox but it crashes quite often and the interval between the crashing seems to be growing smaller.

I can't get electrolysis/e10s/multiprocess to not be disabled by add-ons. Running on Debian.

So, I upgraded to FF50 (From the Debian unstable repos, 50.0.2 according to the repo and the about: page), and flipped the about:config key browser.tabs.remote.autostart to True.

Looking at the "Multiprocess Windows" field at the about:support page it tells me that it's enabled properly, with all my addons disabled.

But if I enable any addon (I've tried with every addon installed that the compatibility reporter tells me is compatible, you can see a list in the troubleshooting information) and restart the browser, the about:support page tells me that multiprocessing is "Disabled by add-on".

From reading at the mozilla wiki (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Electrolysis) and generally around the web, it seems that from version 50 and on, e10s should be working with add-ons as long as they are multiprocessing compatible, which the Add-On Compatibility Reporter (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/add-on-compatibility-reporter) tells me all of my add-ons are. (Except the DOM inspector, which I only enable when I need anyway)

Is there something I have overlooked? Something more that I should try?

Troubleshooting information is with the Add-On Compatibility Reporter enabled, and all other add-ons disabled.

I have a super odd issue where firefox will not load images on my site and I cannot for the life of me understand why!!

I am using firefox 50.0.2 on win 10 64 bit. I have removed all add ons, cleared all cache, force reloaded and nothing seems to work. The site displays completely fine in Edge, Chrome, and Opera.

A public URL for the site is https://contributorbeta.imagesource.com

In the page header at the very top left of the page firefox displays the title / text instead of the logo. It says "IS Contributor Portal" The same issue can be seen throughout the page.

If you right click the header text where the logo should be and inspect the element, when hovering over the src of the image tag the firefox console reports that the image could not be loaded. However, if you right click the text again and copy the image location then open a new tab and paste the location the image can be loaded.

If you edit the source code using the inspector, you can add a dot '.' to the front of the URL and press enter and the image will show up. You can then remove the dot and press enter and the image will stay so there is no problem with the referencing I can see.

I have tried turning off hardware acceleration to no avail. I have also tried on two different installs of firefox 50.0.2.

Thanks, Kevin

FF 50.0.x leaves behind part of Window frame on exit

The light-blue bar across the top of my screen (image #1) is left behind by Firefox V50.0.0 et. seq. It's not QUITE the same size, sometimes it's "L" shaped (has short sides) and seems to be an occasional artifact. Not always the same shape, but PART of the original window frame. Color is the same as my selected light-blue frame, but often (like this one) includes bits of text. The second image happened as I opened and closed another FF windows to check some data, while the first window was open with this form on screen.

It is only an artifact of FF; no other programs exhibit the behavior. And, it is inconsistent; not always does closing FF leave vestiges. I generally only use FF, but my occasional use of IE 11 never exhibits the symptoms. No, Chrome is not installed.

My system is a very stable Windows 7 SP1, x64, updated through KB 3185591. (In retirement, I still manage a dozen or so other computers for other small businesses in my town; haven't see it there, but most of them just stick to IE 11...against my better judgement.) It MIGHT be the video card I use (to keep power consumption and heat down), an ATI Radeon HD 3600 manufactured by HP. The system is a Dell Optiplex 960 w/ 8GB RAM.

WRT to System description; I don't use SharePoint; another "feature" forced on customers by Microsoft.

The crash seems to have started with Firefox 50. I have a windows 10 machine but I have not installed the cumulative update yet. It downloads but doesn't install on the restart. The cumulative update is Cumulative Update for Windows 10 version 16074 x64-based systems (KB3200970) On November 8th it downloaded and failed to install on the restart and has done so every day since.

When I want to download a file I navigate to the folder where I want the file to be saved, and hit "Save", it opens the folder at the top of the list, instead of just saving the file. I do not have the folder selected, and if I did I should have an "Open" or "Open Folder" button.

It finally saves the file when I am in a directory without sub-folders. Not only is it annoying, but if I am in a directory with a deep folder structure, I can hit save quite a bit until it finally saves. then of course I have to go through the hassle of opening my file manager and relocate the download to where I want it.

This problem started within the last 12 hours or less.

When opening Firefox, I've twice gotten a blank page in orange with the logo and the following address: https://pohkawpvideomaster.org/656407508036/a466d7d83cd

The page has promoted itself as an update with an automatic download pop-up of the sketchy looking web address.

My bookmarks work fine, as do links on web pages. But, if I type a correct address into my address window nothing happens when I press "Enter"! I end up having to type it into my Google search window, then clicking on a search result that will take me to the web site I needed. I don't want to have to use Chrome or Edge, both of which I hate. I LOVE my Firefox!! I am using a desktop PC with Windows 10 Home. Can anyone suggest a fix??

I confess I have two Firefox windows with hundreds of tabs in each. The error msg has stalled one of the windows this morning. The only way to work with that window was to click on the option 'Continue Script', after which I discovered about half of the tabs in that window were blanks. The option to Restore the Previous Session was greyed out (Firefox thinks it has restored it successfully?). I tried to refresh Firefox in safe mode, but no improvement: same error msg, same empty tabs. Also tried to copy a recovery.bak file from my Profiles/..../sessionstore-backups in place of sessionstore.js file in Old Firefox Data, hoping to regain the empty tabs, but alas. Is there any help? Can I regain those empty tabs somehow? Please let me know...

Every time I open Firefox it prompts me to restart in order to install version 49.0.2. Unfortunately, restarting it does nothing as it just prompts me once again to restart. I have tried the obvious things, such as a clean install. However despite downloading the latest version and deleting my old version, it still prompts me to restart in order to update to 49.0.2 which is weird considering I've actually downloaded version 50.0.2. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
