After updating to Firefox 27 all webpages take a few dozen seconds to several minutes to load. When loading a webpage Firefox's status displays "connecting" and the CPU gets maxed out with 95 to 100% of its cycles taking by Firefox.

The computer is older so it is a little slow but Internet Explorer 8 has no trouble opening the webpages and neither do other computers on the LAN so it is not a network issue. I have tried restarting Firefox, disabling add-ons, deleting add-ons, disabling hardware acceleration, restarting the computer, and reinstalling Firefox after wiping every trace of it and its user data from the hard drive and registry.

CPU: AMD Athlon 2800+ 2.08GHz RAM: 1GB OS: Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 32bit

I've been anticipating the new update I was told would be today, and it was. After I updated it to Version 28 I opened FF and it immediately crashed. I sent in a crash report, and did that three other times. So now, sadly, I'm back to version 27 that stinks as well.

Anyone have any ideas as to whats wrong with it?? I checked my addons for compatibility and said they were fine. I did nothing different except update to newest version. Not sure what else to do. I refuse to uninstall anything at this point, although that seems to be the basic "advice" given here.....it never solves my problems LOL

So, what next?? And thanks for any help.

I have Windows 7

I had to install some crapware, and it made me install snap.do. This was a mistake. I have completely removed snap.do, so I think, but it has injected itself somehow within firefox. I have removed it entirely, cept for when i type anything in the address bar for a search, it currently only searches http://search.snapdo.com/?st=ds&q= its driving me quite batty. Please read my things I have done before you post.

Things I have done.. - Switched the "search box" search engine. I've tried to switch it to something else like yahoo, and then switch back to google, then type in the ADDRESS BAR, still defaults to snap.do. I've also tried all sorts of things, as I believe since firefox 23 whatever you have selected in the search box, will default for the address bar, in my case.. no.

- keyworld.url or any about:config search for snap or snapdo or snap.do or * Listen, this has been gone since firefox 23. I'm running version 27.0.1, ITS NOT THERE DONT SUGGEST THISSS FKJALSDFLKAJSD. I've also tried the keyworld.url hack. First time I tried there was a snap.do keyword and i was like "EFFFIN AAAA!". But after a restart, snapdo still took over.

- Firefox>help>troubleshoot>reset I'll punch you in the face if you even remotely suggest this, i've done it 329049320 times ;)

- Malware/antivirus/dafjkdsj tool. Unless it directly removes snap.do dont even tempt me.

- uninstall/reinstall Ok.. c'mon, you think I havent tried this?

-add/remove programs rly?

Ok so you see my frustration here? One more list..

Things I will not do.. - Delete my firefox profile. I'd just really rather not, as history is how I browse some stuff. and well other things as well, I mean in the end, if i must i must.

But if anyone has any other ideas on how i can force firefox to a search engine please let me know, and i will be your friend ;D

I was happily using Firefox & though it bombproof. Yesterday I tried to update, the update went through the process right until the end and then said something along these lines: *****installation interrupted****

So far I have tried these things: Offline installer, it just extracts then does nothing. Safe mode, then try the installer, same thing. Tried to uninstall firefox and delete anything on the computer that was firefox related. Tried rebooting of course. Kept trying the installer several times, also tried version 26. Run glaries & Iobit registry and system cleaners. Tried some solutions mentioned on this forum such as the "temp" folder tweeks. Still no progress.

I really really like Firefox and do not want to have to use IE.

Please help :)

Firefox doesn't open half the time. I get an invisible window, as indicated in the window pulldown menu, there are several no-name pages listed there (just a blank entry where a page name would be) and no window will open when I click the dock icon Mac OSX 10.6.8. I can't open Firefox from the dock until I completely quit and relaunch it.

I have Reset Firefox, tried with and without addons, COMPLETELY deleted all firefox files from my system (searched for all files hidden or otherwise for firefox) several times and reinstalled fresh, and the problem persists. I have repeatedly deleted sessionstore.js. I have repeatedly cleared cookies and cache. This has started within the last 3 or 4 updates to Firefox.

In a nutshell: Click dock icon when Firefox is running but no windows are open. Nothing. Check Window menu, I see a no-name page, or several no-name pages in the menu. Clicking them only puts a checkmark next to the blank item and no window shows. Only quitting and relaunching Firefox completely solves the issue.

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.

Dozens of people have strongly complained about Yahoo inserting itself in Firefox and hiding itself so it cannot be removed. This has been going on for at least a month.

Why doesn't Mozilla do something to prevent Yahoo from HACKING into Firefox.? It is an obvious attempt to pre-empt people's browser of choice. Surely there is someone in the Mozilla group who can either alter the code to block Yahoo or at least come up with a solution that lets the average user remove the stupid Yahoo software.

Thanks

When I click on a .pdf link, Firefox downloads the file to my desktop. This is fine.

Sometimes, however, I would prefer that Firefox simply open the .pdf document in a new window. I know it used to work this way, but it stopped some time ago. How can I control this behavior?

I looked in Preferences > Applications and selected on "pdf". Two entries showed up under "Content Type":

 "Preview.app Document (application/po..." 

and

 "Portable Document Format (PDF)".  

Both entries have the same "Action": "Use PDF Browser Plugin 2.4.4 (in Firefox)"

Oops. I just figured it out. The PDF entry (only) has an extra pulldown option under Action: "Preview in Firefox". I tried it and it works!

I guess the old PDF Browser Plugin 2.4.4 must've quit working some time ago.

I am using the Beta version of Firefox (27) but I have seen the same behavior in recent released levels. I enter a search at www.google.com , such as rc heating and cooling nj I then get a page of results. I click on any result (first one is fine, though an Add, any of them work the same way). I see their page. When I hit the Back arrow to get back to the page of results and try another link, it flashes some google redirect URL on the address bar, and then goes right back to the same page I was on. It always brings me back to the same page I was on. If I click on the Back Arrow button with the right mouse button I see three links in the history for that tab, and I can chose the bottom one to go back to the Google search page: 1) Bergen County Heating & Air Conditioning ... (www.dbheatingandcooling.com/?gclid=CNft9ZLC57sCFel9OgodkWUAqQ ) 2) http://www.google.com/aclk?sa=l&ai=CES...&adurl=www.dbheatingandcooling.com 3) rc heating and cooling nj - Google Search ( https://www.google.com/search?q=rc+heating+and+cooling+nj&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-beta&channel=sb ) When on 1) back arrow causes 2) to flash and I go back to 1), always. I can use the right button to drop down the entire list and if I click on 3) then it takes me back to the search results page. Clicking on 2) also takes me back to #1) , BTW. The Google redirect (#2) is sometimes http://www.google.com/url?sa=... instead of aclk?sa=... depending on which link I click, but it is the same behavior. This does not happen in Internet Explorer (IE 8). I see the redirection URL also flashing by in IE, but the back button works and takes me back to the search results page.
