    See:

    The automatic updater did the update to Firefox 23 several days ago. Since then, when I open Firefox the add-on compatibility check runs before Firefox opens, and Firefox always opens to the Welcome to Firefox page that wants me to connect my PC with an Android phone. Considering that I don't have an Android phone, it is annoying to have to close that tab before I do anything else.

    Previous updates took me to the welcome page only the first time I opened Firefox after the update. At least this time Firefox didn't try to change my home page from the one I choose to the Google search page. I can search from the toolbar if I want to; I don't need Firefox to open to the Google search page.

    DB:3.52:Firefox Opens Orange Homepage But Takes Forever To Open Webmail fz

    Helpful Reply


    A Solution! (as at 09/05/2011@2358):

    Source of problem found and fix works! To me, the problem seems to revolve around loading the following file using https (for the UK version of orange webmail):

    useg.orange.co.uk/ts/fsm/1x1.gif

    Unfortunately this address does not easily load in all the browsers I have tried today including Firefox 4 (at least for Mac) and stops at least 2 orange webmail pages from loading in a reasonable amount of time e.g the reply box is delayed from showing when replying to a message (delayed for about 210 seconds). The http version of the above address loads with no problem so I expect that the https version (above) doesn't exist, has a problem, or it was supposed to be the http address version and was mistyped when coding.

    Other webmail pages with this address on seem to comment it out to some extent.

    So far only the pages requiring a box to type in an email haven't commented out this code, hence the long delay. Anyway here's the fix:

    The solution is to block this address (an address for a 1x1 gif image).

    The procedure to do this is:

    Firefox Preferences Content

    Tick Load images automatically box and then click the exceptions box to the right.

    The address to enter is: useg.orange.co.uk

    and then click the block button.

    Now when firefox tries to reload the problem pages it blocks this image (and everything from the domain useg.orange.co.uk) and continues with the rest of the page.

    Since Internet Explorer for windows works, I expect that it is not as "strict" as Firefox 4 when interpreting code.

    Hope this helps.

    Try Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most add-ons.

    (If you're not using it, switch to the Default theme.)

    On Windows you can open Firefox 4.0+ in Safe Mode by holding the Shift key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
    On Mac you can open Firefox 4.0+ in Safe Mode by holding the option key while starting Firefox.
    On Linux you can open Firefox 4.0+ in Safe Mode by quitting Firefox and then going to your Terminal and running: firefox -safe-mode (you may need to specify the Firefox installation path e.g. /usr/lib/firefox)
    Or open the Help menu and click on the Restart with Add-ons Disabled... menu item while Firefox is running.

    Once you get the pop-up, just select "'Start in Safe Mode"

    If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one. Please follow the Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems article for that.

    To exit the Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.

    When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help other users who have the same problem.

    Thank you.

    A possible cause is security software (firewall,anti-virus) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.

    Remove all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.

    It is possible that there is a problem with the files sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.

    Delete the files sessionstore.js [2] and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.

    If you see files sessionstore-##.js with a number in the left part of the name like sessionstore-1.js then delete those as well.

    Deleting sessionstore.js will cause App Tabs and Tab Groups and open and closed (undo) tabs to get lost, so you will have to create them again (make a note or bookmark them).

    There is no mention of 10.4 or later in my software update file!

    That's because 10.4 is a paid upgrade (approx. $130); you must buy a new retail box of 10.4 to install it, and I'd max your RAM before doing that, since you'll need it to make it run with any decent speed. You can get it here: http://www.fadfusion.com/selection.php?productitemnumber=10266204129

    You should get it before they run out and the price goes up dramatically. Apple no longer produces it or sells it to retailers. And you really do need DSL or cable Internet service if you can get it.

    Firefox is my default browser, using W7. All of the desktop links to websites when clicked open Firefox which then opens my home page and not the link specified in the desktop icon. All other desktop shortcuts to programs on local computer perform as desired.

    DB:3.36:Desktop Website Links Only Open Homepage Not Desired Link, Is There A Fix? dd



    This has to do with opening a page by clicking a link in another program that doesn't work when Firefox isn't running. I.e. it is not possible to start Firefox this way and open the requested page, but does work in case Firefox is already running. This should either be a problem with DDE being used (that Firefox doesn't support) or another problem with the default browser setting.

    Does this happen with all supported file extensions?

    This still sounds that some registry keys haven't been created correctly.

    When Firefox is open on my daughters Windows 7 login, it will not open on my wifes Windows7 login. Sometimes, my wife will get an error message asking us to put a disk in the drive. When we close Firefox on my daughters Windows7 login, then Firefox opens on my wife's Windows7 login. The problem works vice versa. In other words, it seems Firefox will only work on one Windows7 id at a time.

    DB:3.36:How Do I Fix When Firefox Is Open On One Windows7 Login, It Will Not Open On A Second Windows 7 Login? d8



    Hello KenJorB,

    Thank you for contacting Mozilla Support. It sounds like Firefox is using the same profile for both users and this is preventing your wife's from working when your daughter's profile is in use. Use the following instructions to create another profile on your wife's login.

    You will need to quit Firefox on both logins before attempting these steps.

    1. Open run prompt by pressing Windows key + R
    2. Run this command in run : firefox.exe -P -no-remote (NB: -P is in CAPS)
    3. The Firefox profile manager will open and ask you to choose the profile you want to use. If you already have more than 1 profile, click on the “Create Profile” button to create a new profile and once the new profile is created, select it and click “Start Firefox”

    Please let us know if this solves your issue.

    Cheers,
    Patrick

    I am not sure what it is that you are seeing. Is it possible that Firefox is opening two windows?

    If you have two Firefox windows open and close down Firefox, and have your preferences set to open as it was previously then it will open two windows.

    You mention Firefox and Aurora. Do you have both of these installed on the same computer ? If so it would be a good idea to use separate unique profiles for each.
