My laptop has limited RAM - about 2GB. Of the browsers I've tried (Chrome, Safari, Firefox), Firefox uses the least RAM, but it still uses around 1GB of RAM to display about 10 tabs (gmail, facebook, reader, and assorted other websites) - this seems insanely high.

Thinking back, this didn't seem to be a problem "back in the day", so to speak, so I tried installing Firefox 3.6 again.

Lo and behold, with the same addons and the same tabs open, Firefox 3.6 is using 300MB of RAM where Firefox 21 used 980MB of RAM. In addition, navigation is noticeably snappier in Firefox 3.6 - probably because it doesn't have to page to disk as often (which would often lock up my computer using Firefox 21).

I thought that newer versions were supposed to improve memory performance, not triple the required memory...

I am now getting the 'well this is embarrassing...' message EVERY time I open Firefox; I have my Home page set to always open 9 tabs - these are the SAME tabs I have opened at start-up for about 2 years - WHY this annoying message now?! When I click 'close' the Home page opens with all the tabs with no problem, but the message is really irritating & doesn't seem to be telling me anything, as there isn't a problem with any of the tabs? NB: In case you ask 'why 9 tabs'?; these are essential websites I use every time I am browsing/working; I cannot keep opening them manually every time. Please advise why this message comes up as here seems to be no problem, & how I can get rid of it? Thanks.

We have a product that uses a java applet to run it. Until Firefox 22 (and for all previous versions), we could depend on the Firefox to work with our product, even when no other browser would. We need to be able to remove FF 23 and re-install FF 22. I've tried all the recommendations to fix the problem, but nothing works. Our Apple customers are the ones who are most affected because neither Safari 6, Chrome nor Firefox will run our product. Our PC customers can run IE.

How do I download Firefox 22? I have a saved copy of the FF 21 installer for PC but not for Mac.

I know that this goes against Firefox advice, but I'm instructing my company and my customers to turn off automatic updates for Firefox until such time that we can use future versions.

Hello,

I've been having a problem with HTML5 video playing in firefox when hosted on GoDaddy. I'm almost positive that this is a server side issue but GoDaddy doesn't have the technical support to give me any more solutions than what they have repeatedly suggested. Here is the link to the index page I am having problems with:

http://gerardtonti.com/CV/index.html There is a video that plays above my name. You can see this in other browsers. The HTML for the video is this:

<video width="220px" height="227px" autoplay>
    		    <source type="video/mp4" src="http://www.gerardtonti.com/CV/img/Sneeze.mp4">
                    <source type="video/ogv" src="http://www.gerardtonti.com/CV/img/Sneeze.ogv">
                    <source type="video/webm" src="http://www.gerardtonti.com/CV/img/Sneeze.webm">
 </video>

GoDaddy has suggested creating an htaccess file that contains the following code:

AddType video/mp4 .mp4 .m4v
AddType video/ogg .ogv
AddType video/webm .webm

I have uploaded the htaccess file with this code and nothing happened. I've placed the file in the root and in the folder that contains the videos. Still nothing. I have had this problem with another client who hosts on GoDaddy as well. Is there a solution to this problem?

Thanks!

Gerard

Firefox 33.1 Every time I relaunch Firefox, I get multiple scripts errors. Clicking the buttons does nothing. I always have to force quit Firefox at least once for things to settle down. At someone's suggestion, I installed No Script, but that created other issues I don't want to deal with, so I removed the Add-On. Could the problem have anything to do with numerous tabs in two different windows? Thanks, in advance, for your help.

Until the most recent update the dropdown listing of available sites in the search box was easily legible and simple to use. Being able to target one's searches so readily and conveniently was one of Firefox's most attractive features.

Now I'm confronted with a panel of mostly indecipherable and in many cases confusingly similar icons. I hate it and want my simple verbal listing back!

Yes, mousing over the icons and hovering will reveal what they represent. But having to do this every time makes what was a quick, convenient routine irritatingly slow and clunky.

Please at least let us choose whether to have icons or a simple listing. Please...

As of this past Thursday, I am unable to paste the vast majority of content copied from the internet into the body of emails composed in my Gmail account. This is not exclusive to, but seems consistently to be the case when attempting to copy Google-related content (search results, YouTube content, images, and so forth).

I am able to perform this function using Chrome, though for a variety of reasons Firefox is my preferred browser, and I would as soon not have to alternate between the two. To my knowledge, no updates have been made that would correspond to or be potentially responsible for this issue.

I've seen similar issues reported on other forums, but none more current than six month's past (either they have not been recently reported or this is an issue particular to me, it seems). In these forums there are suggestions made in the way of modifying scripts, but I would as soon avoid that if possible as it is clear that it my cause my computer to become vulnerable to security invasions.

Not that this issue isn't fairly direct in my reporting it, though the accompanying screenshots illustrate my (1.) copying search results from Google and (2.) a comparison between the results attempting to paste the same content in Chrome and Firefox.

I upgraded to Lion (so, Mac OS X) and using Firefox 9, together with Quicktime plugin 7.7.1.

When I open http://apple.com/trailers and choose a trailer, you can watch a trailer inline or use a download link. Although the inline works properly, the download never starts, and the external quicktime player doesn't start either.

Using the web developer console, I checked the request: [11:43:21.674] GET http://trailers.apple.com/movies/fox/prometheus/prometheus-tlr1_h480p.mov

And the answer is: [HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily 131ms]

But nothing else changes. Page doesn't reload, nothing moves.

In the preferences, Applications tab, I have all video/quicktime being handled by "Use QuickTime Plug-in 7.7.1".

I tried to change to "Ask" or to use application "Quicktime", but nothing moves :(

Thanks for any information you can give.

Before the recent update, 19.0, I would google something and see [PDF] next to a link. I click the middle mouse button to open it in a new tab. Firefox would download the file and open it with Adobe Reader. I like this.

With the new update 19.0, the pdf file would be opened in the new tab. I have to go and down load it and then open it in Adobe. I don't like this.

I go into preferences under applications. I look to see if I can change this. Next to Adobe Reader document, I choose Use Adobe Reader, but when I click on a [PDF] link, it still opens the file in Firefox and not Adobe.

I want it back to the way it was.

I have looked at advice here for similar issues - safe restart, clearing cookies and cache don't help. I don't have adblocker or firewall, almost no add-ons, the problem occurred both before and after updating Flash.

Chrome works fine with Soundcloud, so it looks like it is a Firefox issue. Any advice?

I first downloaded Firefox Syn to my iPhone a couple of years ago and now I have an iPad and I'm trying to set it up for that I remembered why I never managed to set it up on my phone. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE! I just go round and round in this idiotic circle for pairing a device. First it took a long time to just get my iPad to give me the option of entering the numbers from my laptop, for the longest time all I could get it to do was give me another set of numbers to enter on my laptop (useless since that same page on my laptop was giving me numbers to enter on my iPad. Huh?) After I finally managed to get my iPad to allow me to enter the pairing numbers from my laptop, it then asks for the recovery key. THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND! I have no "manage account" option under preferences on my laptop. All I have on my Mac under Firefox/Preferences/Sync is set up or pair a device. When I set up it asks me "create an account" or "have an account". Every time I chose have an account it takes me back to pair a device. I tried "create an account" but when I entered my email address it tells me I already have an account (I have a password as well). I'm just going round and round in circles and this is just the MOST IDIOTIC SET UP EVER. And judging by the hours I've spent trawling all the help forums and myriad postings on this I'm not the only one in this position.

How the hell do I get my recovery key?

How on earth do I get to the "manage accounts" option?

FYI I have the same problem with my iPhone. The only option I have there is "send me instructions" or "I have a sync account". When I select that I have an account it just gives me the 3 sets of numbers to enter on my other device and tells me to select "add a device" on the other device. But on the other device (my Mac) I I can't get past pair a device. There is no add a device option. There is no manage accounts option. Nothing but this endless circular hell that has me wanting to smash something. I'm not dumb, I'm relatively tech savvy, but I'm stumped.

I'm on a Mac OS X, Firefox 27. Both iPhone and iPad are on iOS7. Using Firefox Virtual Browser on the iPad, Firefox Home on the iPhone.

I attempted to install a media player the other day and it was crap and I started to feel sketchy about it, so I uninstalled it completely from my computer. But when returning to firefox I noticed that three new extensions had been added. I disabled all three, but only one had the option to remove it. The other two are still in my add-ons manager. They are not enabled, so not causing a problem (I hope), but would like to remove them. (GoPhotoIt is the main one I've read about all over the internet). I tried to follow the manual uninstall instructions, but there is no file in the extensions folder that matches the IDkeys listed in the "troubleshooting information" panel. (The same extenstions were on Chrome, but that was very easy to trash all three in, for some reason FF isn't making it so easy).

Usually when I go to search for something, I type directly into the address bar. Most of the time it'll automatically just perform a Google search. Recently, however, the search engine has been changing to Yahoo, which is god-awful. I've looked around on the internet for answers but the address bar search engine, as well as the actual search box next to the address bar, keep setting themselves to Yahoo.

What I've done so far: Every time it switches from Google to Yahoo, I open about:config. I search for Yahoo and these pop up: [IMG]http://i44.tinypic.com/2rc1gyg.png/IMG

The status of the items in bold say "user set," but I haven't set any of those. Usually I reset them all to default, sometimes I will change the 2nd, 4th, and 5th items to Google.

I've also gone through my search bar settings and deleted every search engine except Google (these include Yahoo, Bing, Wikipedia, Ebay, Amazon, etc.). However Yahoo will randomly pop up.

I don't know what's causing it. But it's getting really annoying.

If you know how to solve this once and for all, please help!
