Firefox 43.0.1 is practically unusable, so I have been forced to migrate to Chrome.

FF43 seems to have finally gotten the memory usage problem under control, but with the price that Firefox is now unable to open more than 2 or 3 tabs before becoming unable to open any more. This happens when restoring a previous set of tabs. The first few tabs viewed open without any problems, but when I click over to the third or fourth one I start to see blank screens. After that nothing happens.

(I am using WinXP SP3. I am not using "Nvidia Forceware Network Access Manager." The past 20 versions of FF have all had memory overflow issues when many tabs were open, but they all remained usable. This version 43 is the first one which is basically unusable.)

After updating to firefox43.1 this morning (19th December) firefox is in constant crash mode. I've uninstalled and re-installed 3 or 4 times still to no avail. When i click to open it, a minimised screen appears with two 'new tab' buttons at the top and the firefox start page tab (3rd in from the left).

This hangs there for a few moments and then I get the firefox has crashed and has had to close message. This has now happened at least a dozen times. It was working perfectly until this latest update and I've had to download Google Chrome just to get online.... and it sucks. I really want to get back onto Firefox.... please help. I've tried to attach images/screen-grabs and the error file but they won't load up.

I was just notified of a Software update 43.0.2 and as I've never had problems before I went ahead and did it but I had to do a system restore to get rid of it and regress to 43.01 to regain any functionality. 43.0.2 allowed me only to open the browser, and open a new tab... as many of those as the heart desired. It wouldn't however allow my home page to open, load any of my bookmarks or go to any destination I manually typed into the address bar.

How about the flash player? How to troubleshoot pls?

When the crash occurs - the screen gets transparent, there is a note about firefox stopping to respond and I have to close it out. My browser is 43.0.1

I noticed it may have something to do with the ads, because I opened my email to read email from support.mozilla.org and it crashed. Then the window was restored and I was able to read it.

The browser was reinstalled and refreshed. I have no add-ons and no extensions. But I have plugins. I disabled some and changed the rest to ask to activate.

I'm not sure whether it is incorrectly reporting v.43.0.1 when it is in fact up-to-date, or thinks that v43.0.1 is the latest.

I could presumably download and install the latest version, but I am concerned why Firefox thinks it is up-to-date, when it clearly isn't.

Hello, I am new here. I have been using Firefox on my Windows laptop for a while now, but now, I have an adware tab that keeps popping up randomly! This is the tab that keeps popping up: cl.1ck.me/dl/shuffle.php I've tried everything, from refreshing Firefox, installing add-ons to block pop-ups, blocking the site with BlockSite (add-on to block websites), and still it is popping up! By default, whenever the rather assertive tab opens itself, I get a message saying that Firefox prevented the page from redirecting. When I allowed it to show, it would show me some obviously malicious ad, saying something like "Windows Media Player is out of date! Click to update now!" (it was different ads each time, but all of them wanted me to download a program). Now whenever I allow it to show, I get redirected to http://www.adtrackone.eu/go.php?a_aid=55415c29d7266 and Firefox gives me a message that says that the website is a reported attack site, and advises me not to continue. When I do proceed to the site, I don't even get an advertisement anymore; a pop-up from Firefox appears, asking if I'd like to save "Setup__11652_il641438.exe" Of course, I have not saved the executable, as it is obviously malware, and I've gotten some pretty bad viruses on my laptop before (Security.Hijack was one of them. What a nasty thing that was! There was also Storm Watch, Desktop Temperature Monitor, et cetera, I'm getting off topic.) And even when my computer is off, this bugger still finds a way to open itself! I usually find about 5 or 6 of these tabs open every morning, each one with the message "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page." It used to just keep opening itself one at a time, but now it's opening itself in pairs. For example, it's already happened three times while I've been typing this; I'll be typing, then the tab will pop up twice in a row! I'm sorry that this message is so long, but I really need help! This is actually the first time I've made a forum post for help...I searched for cl.1ck.me/dl/shuffle.php online, and the only result I could find was a page in Polish where someone had it set as their home page and couldn't get rid of it. Unfortunately, there were no solutions to that problem. Again, I'm sorry for the dreadfully long message but I REALLY need help! Refreshing Firefox, uninstalling my add-ons and themes, deleting suspicious-looking files in my Firefox data folder, scanning my computer for viruses with MalwareBytes - all of these have done NOTHING to help the issue! Here are some screenshots, if they'll help. Please, ANY help at all will be appreciated! If you need any more information, ask! Screenshots (had to use an image hoster because it wasn't working when I tried to add them for some reason): http://s28.postimg.org/5kv62lwvh/Screenshot_1482.png http://s28.postimg.org/hlgm3c4a5/Screenshot_1483.png http://s28.postimg.org/6pp87zjcd/Screenshot_1484.png http://s28.postimg.org/u2n9qhzfx/Screenshot_1485.png

Firefox goes into non-responding mode when I'm trying to import my HTML backup file of bookmarks. Process takes 25 % of CPU, then an "unresponsive script" message pops up. Pressing Continue, Debug or Stop is useless : the same message pops up a while later. I have to forcibly close Firefox.

Script is chrome://browser/content/places/editBookmarkOverlay.js:1112.

The following measures did not work :

- Disable all extensions.

- Start in Firefox Safe Mode (a different script becomes unresponsive : chrome://browser/content/browser.js:6888).

- Disable Adobe Flash protected mode in Shockwave Flash.

I successfully tried to import this very file in Firefox before reinstalling my PC from scratch (I believe it was in a previous Firefox version). It has been exported from Opera and has around 10 000 bookmarks. I can open it with Firefox and view it in a tab. It's only import into bookmarks that fails.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Since Google Chrome no longer supports Windows Vista I have made Firefox my default browser, but when I try to stream a video on a site that uses JWPlayer (e.g. iai.tv) I get a popup saying the likes of the following:

"You have chosen to open [NAME] which is: VLC media file (.MP4) (254KB) from: http://iai.tv

What should Firefox do with this file?

Open with [option to select] [dropdown menu]

Save file [option to select]"

No matter which of these I choose, it won't play the video. On other browsers it streams the videos immediately, as with e.g. Yotube.

If anyone could advise me on what I need to do so that I can stream videos such as this using Firefox as my browser (again, my operating system is Vista), I'd be hugely grateful.

Many thanks in advance.

Starting with version 43.0.0 Firefox started to crash on my machine. With 43.0.0 it happend a few times, but with 43.0.1 it crashes just after startup. I try to send a crash report every time it happens but it says there was a problem sending it. In the submit log it says "Crash report submission failure: Could not establish connection to the server". Because of this I do not have a directory of sumitted crash reports, only one with pending reports.

I have tried reinstalling Firefox twice, reset Firefox so no plugins or addons are installed but it still crashes shortly after startup. Even when it is open long enough for me to exit Firefox it crashes on exit.

I can include a few report ids but as they have not been sent I don't know how much good they will be: ea4782b8-f222-46f3-95a3-620a8b783844, 4cf5165b-3ad4-49c1-8615-6c2665799791, 7ac58778-bc59-44c3-8579-ba4be962a5a8. I do have the .dmp and .extra files for these crashes.

After update and restart my Firefox keeps crashing on a previous session consisting of I suspect that sessionstore.js got corrupted, I have previous.js though, which, being few weeks old, should be my last resort But renaming it still leads to crash... and I need my tabs back.

Is there any way to load URLS in portions/ automatically fix session info in Firefox? Is there any way to extract all URLs from those files? Is there any way to generate a "healthy" sessionstore.js from list of URLs afterwards? What are exactly those previous.js / recovery.bak / recovery.js / upgrade.js files in Profiles folder and when they are created (as of now I can only guess based on timestamps)?
