2 Feb 2013 Concerns: Firefox 18.0.1 often freezes, at random times, since about 31 Jan 2013 I am using Mozilla Firefox 18.0.1, Windows Vista, PC, Desktop. My Mozilla Firefox freezes since about 31 Jan 2013 at random times quite often, when I do see TV or videos, also with YouTube videos. It freezes especially when I do start TV or a Video, sometimes also it freezes when the video is running for some time. I do use Firefox mostly only for TV and videos, so else I do not see. Some days earlier (26 January 2013), I had installed the upgrade of the new Norton Internet Security 2013. The two Norton add-ons on for Firefox, I have both deactivated. I can get out of the freezing, when I do click to end the Internet connection. After I have waited for about 5 seconds, the Mozilla Firefox browser can be moved again with the cursor. After I click to close the Firefox, and wait for about 5 seconds, the freezing also does end. I did do two Windows restores, one to 1 week ago and the next to 2 weeks ago. After the restore, when I started Mozilla Firefox, it was at first Firefox 17. But to my very bad luck, Firefox started immediately to update to Firefox 18.0.1 I had seen this updating on Help – About Firefox. There were good times, when people could choose themselves which version of Firefox they wanted. After the restore, I had also downloaded the latest Adobe Flashplayer version (about version 11.5), but the freezes have remained the same. Is there a possility to prevent the automatic update of Firefox? So that I could choose which version of Firefox, I do want. When there is a serious bug in Firefox, I could nevertheless use Firefox instead of changing to the Internet Explorer. I know I myself am responsible to prevent hackers from entering my computer. I have read that 80% of users in Germany do not have any Internet Security against hackers at all. My Internet Explorer until now does not freeze.

After the last update FireFox started to continuously eat a whole CPU on my 2-core laptop. My usage pattern (regarding browsed sites and/or activated plugins) has not changed, but I must confess that I'm a heavy user of plugins.

I suspect the problem may arise from a changed performance behaviour of a plugin due to the new JS engine of FF18, but how can I easily trace this problem further down. I.e. is there a way to inspect the collected performance data of firefox (activated)?

I am a regular user of the Kunena-based forum at lwks.com. Kunena is a Joomla extension. I have been using this forum using Firefox for the past two years without problem. After updating to FF18.0 yesterday, I now find that I cannot insert images or other files into forum posts. When I click on the Add File button and select a file (e.g. jpg) the path to the file on my desktop no longer appears in the Add file box and the Insert button is missing so I am unable to insert the file as an attachment to the forum post.

When I click on a PDF, a new tab opens. It gives me the option to open the document directly or save it--this is what I have preferences set to do. However, when I try either of those options nothing happens. It only opens a new blank tab. My specifications are below. I've run all the relevant software updates.

System: OS X 10.8.2

Adobe Reader: 10.1.5

Firefox: 18.0.1

I've seen this problem on other posts and I've done some searching on the web. I've tried the solutions that have been provided and worked for other people, however I noted that they were running older versions of some of the software, etc. Interestingly, I CAN open PDFs that come to me or that I send through Gmail.

I have done the following based on the advice I've seen:

Cleared my downloads list

Tried disabling the Adobe NPAPI Plug-In

In my Firefox preferences: I have set PDF documents to be open by Adobe. I also tried it with Preview. Neither of them worked.

I appreciate any help you can offer.

Can someone please help? I am on FF 18, Windows XP and the latest Java (1.7.0_11). After spending many hours searching for and reading posts about FF blocking Java I fully understand the reasoning for this and it's fine by me BUT I do want to view/use java on trusted sites. The article, http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-use-java-if-its-been-blocked , seemed clear and simple enough BUT when I tried doing this on the Oracle Java test page, like others, I did not get any option to 'click to Play'. There was no red icon in the address url box (to click on) but there was a yellow pop up strip containing a blue icon on the left, the notice that a plugin was required and a button to install it. Clicking on the blue icon did not bring up any 'click to Play' option and this icon does not appear in the address url box. Clicking on the install button does only take me back to the download page at Oracle (and we can go on ad infinitum on this route).

Java works fine in IE (according to the Oracle test page). I have noticed that in FF, when I go to the test page, for what must be a milisecond I see the Java verification screen (rotating circle of blue dots) but then it gets blocked with the greyed out box. There is no message on that box as described in the above article, only a message that a plugin is required, clicking on that again takes me back to a fresh download button.

I have tried uninstalling Java and then downloading a fresh one through IE but that does not make any difference.

What can I do to get the 'click to play' option to work (any route would be fine i.e clicking on an icon or the greyed out boxes?

I have found that there is a FF click to play switch Addon at, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/click-to-play-switch/ but wonder if this would work if FF is already permanently blocking Java.

I am not a clued up techi guy so I can add any other info.

Since updating to the new Firefox 18.0.1 every time I try to close a few open windows Firefox crashes.

I can close about five to seven of them with no problem but when I have about three of them left Firefox crashes. It is very annoying. I used the Firefox Safe Mode feature and this problem does not happen while in Safe Mode. I don't know what the next step is to fix this problem. Could you please help. Thank you

When I running/browsing internet on Firefox. I can't safely eject my flash drives. each time, I get this:

"Problem Ejecting USB Mass Storage Device- This devise is currently in use. Close any programs or windows that might be using the device, and try again."

The flash drives aren't being used much of the time, except for when I save something to them. Nothing is using them and all saves and other stuff are completed, but I can't safely eject them when Firefox is running. I have to close Firefox to safely eject them. I can in safe mode, however. Is a weird glitch or something else going on with Firefox?
