Hi there,

I have installed a British dictionary, as I don't use American spelling (I'm Australian).

I've changed the language to British in settings and deleted USA from the options. Every time I close the browser it changes back to the US dictionary and the spellcheck starts correcting me based on USA spelling. I right click a text box, click languages and it's set itself to English (USA).

Is there some way to delete the USA dictionary entirely? Why does it keep changing back to the default?? It's so frustrating!

I am using a Mac, latest OS, with the default Firefox theme.

Thanks in advance, Hayden

Nonetheless, when I click in Firefox onto a mailto: link nothing happens. Any idea of what could be wrong? Thanks Dario

updated latest upgrade in Sept. since then cannot get games to play or they crash immediately, have updated adobe flash player like over a dozen times, security all updated a few more times, quick time player updated followed your page instructions. adobe flash player crash bar appears about every minute, even though videos usually play. does not have report crash box most the time. cleaned out unnecessary stuff, and also thunderbird mail will not let me get into it even with last password and when I try to change it, your site claims it has sent link to my yahoo mail which it never does, not in spam either and I tried that like 10 different times, so that is now working either. I am not a techy person, but have used computers since 2005 and have never had a problem like this when I have upgraded mozilla in the past. thank you, Deborah.

I have been having an issue with Firefox freezing "sporadically" on my PC. In a nutshell, Firefox freezes typically once per boot-up cycle. By freeze, I mean that my whole PC locks up and is unusable, no clicking is allowed for any task, but my mouse is free to scroll around. Once the computer unfreezes, typically under 1 minute later, whatever action I had taken will pop up (including but not limited to ctrl-alt-del). This freezing only occurs on certain websites, and only after boot-up. The frequent problem I have isolated is yahoo mail, where the browser becomes stuck on "read s.yimg.com".

As far as I know, this only occurs shortly after boot up. If I magically avoid culprit sites, the PC eventually reaches a state where I have yet to witness a freeze. So say I get lucky on a few websites and edit a word doc for an hour, when I eventually load yahoo mail, it may NOT freeze.

I am currently running Firefox version 43.01. I had been using 36.04 until I updated to 43.0, and the problem started occurring on 36.04. I ran Firefox via safe mode, and also manually disabled all add-ons, but the problem persisted.

Also gave google chrome a shot, and I did not come across this same issue.

Anybody see this before? Curious for any insight you are able to provide, and a possible solution. While it may seem like a stupid question (do stupid questions actually exist?), could this be a virus? My gut tells me no, but I am no computer specialist.

Thanks!

I downloaded today's update at the bequest of Mozilla. When I opened the program, I could not get past the master screen (I'm not sure what it's actually called.) Could not get to messages received or messages sent or contacts or any other category. Then I closed the program and could not even get back into the program. This same thing happened about a week ago when I was using Windows 10. I since went back to Windows 8.1 and Firefox was working perfectly -- until today's download update. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. Roger

I no longer have the time to constantly close down Firefox given the number of times it totally stops when browsing.

I am not sure whether this is because of gradually changes to the browser or because of the increase in the number of websites that are now media heavey.

In the past I could regularly check news sites and leave tabs open to be able to compare articles etc..

This has now become a daily ordeal. One newspaper web site I am forced to use chrome.

Worse still the bloated use of memory is compounded by the excesses of Thunderbird which now also hangs and sometimes stops all processes.

What has gone wrong?

I am still using the same computer system with Windows 7 professional and Office professional.

But over the past 4 years Firefox and Thunderbird performance has dropped.

Currently having only just restarted Firefox is it consuming 143,972K and Thunderbird 86,696K also just restarted.

By comparison Chrome is using 60,000K and Internet Explorer 12,372K, while Outlook is using 7,872 (ie a 12th of Thunderbird) and Eudora 5,356 (a 13th)

Have followed all the various options offered over the past year for solutions. Nothing seems to return Firefox to being the reliable, and for me preferrable, browser.

When Thunderbird and Firefox automatically install updates, there are always previous versions remaining under 'Programs and Features' in the Windows control panel. Since my HD only has little free space left, I'd like to ask whether it's save to uninstall these remainders?

Furthermore I realised that at least Thunderbird exists in two independent installations on my PC When I set up the PC, I installed all my programs in a path called C:\_P_Programme. Here the most current installation (V: 45.1.0) exists in C:\_P_Programme\E-Mail\Thunderbird. In the Windows standard path (C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird), there is another installation (V: 38.0.5), which can be started independently from the other one.

I installed Thunderbird and Firefox only once and afterwards only relied on the automatic update, so I don't have an explanation for this.

I use Windows 8.1 Pro.

Thank you for your reply.

When I click a web link from a email message (Thunderbird) or any other web link, , I get a wait circle from Win 7 for about 10 seconds but the page never loads in Firefox, but a firefox.exe process starts up. I can do this 10 times and the tab never loads the web page but I will get 10 Firefox process running. If I exit Firefox, all those 10 processes remain running and I need to stop them all before I can start up FIrefox again. I did startup Firefox in Safe mode and without my virus program running - no change. Extremely frustrating.

My employer's default browser is Internet Explorer, and her default email client is Thunderbird. Up until four weeks ago the "send link by email" in I.E. worked fine. It now starts Thunderbird, but does not launch the WRITE dialog box, nor does it pass the URL to Thunderbird.

Firefox on her computer, using the "Send via email" menu option correctly launches Thunderbird's WRITE dialog box and correctly passes the URL to the new message.

One query for this problem is found here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157553

The suggested fixes do not work. MAPI appears to be functioning fine on the computer: Firefox (not the default browser on her computer) links to Thunderbird (is the default email client) fine, but Internet Explorer (which is the default browser) is not working properly. I have already done the suggested "fixes" that tens of thousands of people have suggested--- changing default software.
