I like Firefox. I'm running 33.1.1 on a year-old MacBook Pro running OS X 10.9.5. Here's the issue: I have noted that my MacBook Pro will begin to heat rapidly, and the fan will turn on - usually within 60-90 seconds of opening Firefox. Here's what I did so far: I scaled back the version of Flashplayer - still no difference. Then I started Firefox in "safe mode", and the problem did NOT re-occur. I restarted Firefox - Add-ons enabled, and the heating/fan started again. I "reset" Firefox, and it still occurs. I started it in "safe mode" again, and the problem does not re-occur. I have one add-on: AdBlock. As for plug-ins, they are all set to "Ask to Activate"

I thought at first that it was the AdBlock add-on, but this was not the case.

The webpage where I most frequently encounter this is nytimes.com, which is set as my homepage. If I move off that page into something random, like a Wordpress Page, the issue stops: the computer begins to cool and the fan turns off.

This has not occurred in Safari with nytimes.com loaded as the webpage. I left it running for 10 minutes, and no heat, no fan.

Is there a fix for this? Anyone else experienced this?

Hi,

I have FVD Speed dial and Eversync installed on my Windows 7 laptop, which I've been using for ages now and never had any problems whatsoever. One of my speed dials is for my Gmail account, but I cannot get into my email on my laptop that has Windows 8.1 installed from Firefox or Cyberfox even though I can do so without difficulty using Chrome and Opera. On this same laptop (running W8) all the rest of the speed dials are fine - it's only the Gmail one that won't work and I get the following message:

"The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I have tried every single troubleshooting guide I can find (including going into about:config and making changes there) but to no avail and it doesn't seem (from what I've read) that anyone else has this perculiar problem that I'm experiencing.

As Gmail is one of the speed dials I use the most, it's getting really frustrating and I love this browser so don't want to have to ditch it, but if I can't get this fixed I'm afraid I'm going to have to.

Can anyone help me please?

Thanks

Some of the vertical lines in the fonts are double width like a mixture of bold and normal font weight. I have hardware accellaration disabled. The problem is not fixed when I change default font settings. The problem is not resolved be resetting zoom to 0.

Inspect Element identifies the problem happens when the website selects open Sans. If I stop sites selecting fonts and force the defaults I don not get the problem. Therefore the problem is with Firefox 33.1 rendering certain fonts specified by websites.

My machine is windows vista and Open Sans is not shown in the font list. However this was not a problem with previous versions of Firefox.

I did need to do a reset of firefox parameters during the upgrade to 33 so maybe ther eis some other parameter which needs changing to help render fonts which are not loaded on the machine?

I am unable to stop FF from requiring the User Account Control dialog box before it will load. I uninstalled and reinstalled a clean copy, which worked the first time, and then re-established the UAC dialog on subsequent starts. This is incredibly annoying. It has never happened before with FF. How do I stop this behavior? I will stop using the damn program if this can't be fixed.

Under about:preferences#security, you can choose what sites can download add-ons without you needing to allow it thru the Exceptions button by Warn Me When Sites Try To Install Add-ons

The defaults are; marketplace.firefox.com and addons.mozilla.org

But every time Firefox is restarted, this list is deleted. Even resetting Firefox does not fix this. I deleted the prefs.js file, but no joy. I checked, and found this enter in the file, but it will not display when Firefox is started.

dom.mozApps.signed_apps_installable_from;https://marketplace.firefox.com

I even downgraded from Firefox 34.0.5 to 33.1.1 but the issue is still there.

As far as I can tell, this is the only setting that is having trouble.

I am loving FF and the extensions.

However, I want the extensions to be put in the order that I want.

For example, there are some "active" extensions, such as AWESOME SCREEN SHOT, that I want to be displayed. There are some "passive" extensions, like SELF-DESTRUCTING COOKIES, that I want in the >> drop down menu, as I don't actually interact with them regularly.

Is this something that can be done?

I went to about:config and found browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone had 33.1.1 as the reason two startup pages were launching. I clicked modify and removed the 33.1.1 but it still put itself back in. I then saw browser.startup.homepage_override.buildID clicked Modify and cleared the number but it put itself back. This just started happening and now this appears in the address bar: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/33.1.1/whatsnew/?oldversion=23.0.1

Ordinarily this never happens but always starts happening after I update to the newest version.

Thank you in advance for your time and attention in this matter.

The issue occured two days ago. After updating to Firefox 33.1, most of my extensions have dissappeared. List of extensions: NoScript, Adblock plus, Adblock plus pop-up addon, Element hiding helper for Adblock plus, Multirow bookmarks toolbar, X-notifier, WOT, VKfox, вконтакте.ру downloader, Avast (switched off), Epubreader, Add to search bar.

My antivirus software: Avast 2015 free edition with all the updates.

Extensions which do not dissappear: Adblock plus, WOT, Epubreader, Avast online security (switched off).

What happens: yesterday I launched browser (Firefox 33.1) and found out that most of my extensions had dissappeared. I looked through Firefox system folders (Appdata/ and Program files/) - there were no signs of extensions, as if I had never installed them. I added them back. Surprisingly, all settings of extensions were okay. The next day this issue happened again. I thought it was some malware, so I ran antivirus checking. Avast found nothing. Next thing I thought of was: maybe Firefox does that itself? So, I installed all the extensions. Then I closed browser and immediately opened it again. Extensions were at their place. I thought that the issue was solved. Today, I switched my computer on, opened Firefox, guess what happened? Correct, no extensions (except for the four abovementioned ones). I re-installed Firefox, issue still exists. The only thing I found out - extensions dissappear with time. Today, my computer was switched on the whole day. I closed Firefox, left the computer for few hours. When I came back, there were no extensions, again.

What I am going to do now - check the system for malware again, with Dr.Web's CureIt utility. If it doesn't find anything, then, I will install the older version of Firefox and try it. Google Chrome works well, no problems with extensions (but I have only 2 installed for Chrome).

P.S. Almost forgot, bookmarks are okay, settings do not change, search engines are at their place too. But DuckDuckGo keeps appearing in list of search engines after uninstallation. So, I think that issue is in Firefox.
