    Try troubleshooting...

    From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Reset Safari. Select the top 7 buttons and click Reset. Relaunch Safari. If you still have problems...

    Go here for trouble shooting 3rd party plugins or input managers which might be causing the problem. Safari: Add-ons may cause Safari to unexpectedly quit or have performance issues

    If the issue isn't third party plugins, go to the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari/Preferences. Make note of all the preferences under each tab. Quit Safari. Now go to ~/Library/Preferences and move this file com.apple.safari.plist to the Desktop.

    Relaunch Safari and see if that makes a difference. If not, move the .plist file back to the Preferences folder. If Safari functions as it should, move that .plist file to the Trash.

    And as with any software update, repair disk permissions.

    Launch Disk Utility. (Applications/Utilities) Select MacintoshHD in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab. Click: Repair Disk Permissions. When it's finished from the Menu Bar, Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac. If you see a long list of "messages" in the permissions window, it's ok. That can be ignored. As long as you see, "Permissions Repair Complete" when it's finished... you're done. Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac.

    Using Firefox 3.6.18, I had several tab groups defined with several web pages in each group. I closed Firefox and my tab groups are gone.

    The icon for tab groups is missing from the toolbar and I can't figure out how to get it back. Pressing CTRL+SHIFT+E does nothing. Under Tools, Options, General, the startup option is when Firefox starts, "Show my homepage" and it is greyed out. I have disabled all addons and the problems persist.

    I don't understand why this feature just suddenly decided to stop working. I've decided to trust Tab Groups twice now and have been burned both times. This feature is a great feature, but if it is as unreliable as I've found it to be, I can't put my faith in using it.

    How do I re-enable Tab Groups on my system, and how do I recover the groups that I had defined?

    DB:2.84:Tab Groups Missing xk



    App (pinned) tabs and Tab Groups (Panorama) are stored as part of the session data [1] in the file sessionstore.js [2] in the Firefox profile folder [3].

    Make sure that you do not use "Clear Recent History" to clear the "Browsing History" when Firefox is closed because that prevails and prevents Firefox from opening tabs from the previous session.

    Recently more than ever Firefox lets me down multiple times a day and is becoming unreliable and unusable. I don't know if this is due to a recent update because I never had problems to this extent before. Always problems but not to this degree.
    I get the blank google page after using the back button which is really annoying but I can cope with that. Then now there's the 'stop plug in' because its not responding page where everything freezes and usually crashes after. And now I get totally unresponsive pages that freeze all the time.
    Its got to the stage where the little quirks of Firefox are increasing instead of being ironed out and fixed and it has become a hindrance instead of a help. Back to Opera

    DB:2.83:Why Is Firefox So Unreliable z9



    Do you like the new Opera, or are you still using the old Opera (12.x)?

    Google results page blanking out on "Back"

    This was first reported about 11 months ago, and affects users with a zoom level of 130% or higher. A workaround was discovered about two weeks after that report, so you needn't have suffered all this time. Here it is:

    (1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

    (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste sess and pause while the list is filtered

    (3) Double-click the browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers preference and change the value from -1 to 0 (that's a zero).

    (Please don't change any other similar-sounding settings to 0 or you may disable Firefox's ability to save/restore your open windows and tabs.)

    Then reload the problem page. Hopefully after that you won't need to reload the results page ever again.

    Plugin not responding

    Is it Flash? I don't know if it's available for Windows XP, but Flash is up to version 14 now: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

    Generally speaking, plugins should not take down Firefox completely like that because they are (usually) isolated in the plugin-container.exe process. Some users have set an environment variable to force Firefox to run plugins "in-process" instead of using plugin-container.exe. If you have done that, you could experiment with undoing it to see whether that helps keep plugin crashes from crashing Firefox.

    Pages freezing

    There are many possible reasons for this, so without details, it is hard to advise. You could check this support article for general suggestions: Firefox hangs or is not responding - How to fix.

    Since 4.x Firefox has been pretty crappy. And really gets crappier with each update. I updated to 31, and it was worse than 30. Luckily (or unluckily, depending on how you look at it), I keep older versions just in case the new version is crap. So I reinstalled 29, still crappy but better than 30 and 31.

    One of the biggest issues with Firefox these days, is it is a memory hog. And I mean a glutton. It never fails that after only 2 days of usage, it puts itself in the top of the list of CPU usage, and memory usage on my Mac. According to Activity monitor. I've attached a screen shot of how much resource it is taking up currently. Chrome is left on and used just as much (I alternate, because Firefox is unreliable), and it's 11th on the list.

    96.0% CPU usage, with eating up 1.49GB of RAM for Firefox. Chrome is 0.6% CPU usage, and 127.6MB of ram. And Chrome is the browser I'm using to type this post. Because Firefox is lagging. This has been an well known issue with Firefox for the last few years now. And no amount of installing, reinstalling, safe mode, updates has fixed it. Garbage. The worse part is, other than the memory issue, it's a better browser than Safari or Chrome. But the memory issue is a pretty big deal. When are you people going to fix this?!

    We are living just 1.5 miles away from the ATT Dewitt, NYtower but our twoLG C 395s always have problems with the network connection. It is supposed to be the 3G, but most of the time we are cut in the middle of the conversation. The bar is always going back and forth between nothing to three (0-3).

    We have brought our phones twice to the ATT Dewitt, and they have changed our phone chips but it doesn't make any improvement at all.

    I wonder why it is so cheap but not cheap at all with 2 years of contract we have to stay with...

    How to avoid this phone?

    Hi Birandri,

    I would recommend that you send a Private Message to ATTCustomerCareis part of the ATT customer service team, They may be able to resolve your Issue. You can expect a reply via return PM(Blue envelope top right of screen) between the hours of7am-10pm CST Monday - Friday, should hear back within 2 to 3 business days.

    This group can support you in finding out the root cause of the problem and get you in touch with the right tech support people. We have a ton of users in my area wtih the C395 and its a good phone with very few issues.

    Hope this helps!

    FireFox uses a different Adobe Flash Player then Internet Explorer uses. Lets try uninstalling the Adobe Flash Player then reinstalling it. Follow the link below

    Also change your GPU rendering back to what where you had it before and as far as the add ons I dont know what add ons you have I would just disable them all and see if that possibly improves your video if there is no change than it is likley a Flash issue,
    but if the picture improves with add ons disabled then you would have to manually disable each add on to determine which add it was.

    DB:2.75:Why Has Firefox 4.0b10 Deleted All Previous Versions From My Computer? mj



    You probably only lost the desktop shortcut to start the beta version and now that has happened again and you lost the shortcut to start Firefox 3.6.13.

    You will have to create a new desktop shortcut for the Firefox 3.6.13 version.

    You can probably do that via Start All Programs Mozilla Firefox Firefox

    Make sure that you do not choose the Safe mode entry.

    If that also gives the Firefox 4 beta version then go to the Firefox 3.6.13 program folder ("C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\") and right-click the firefox.exe program.

    Windows probably hides the .exe file extension, so be sure to get the correct file (check the Properties).

    Now its working , The client sends a get file request to the server and the server checks the request and sends the file if available.
    but when it sends the first line of the file to the client the client read the first line and then close.

    Why is Comcast's webmail so unreliable? When I'm in foreign countries it is usual that I cannot open it...sometimes not in the US either. I've written to Comcast, and apparently their support people do not speak English, and are capable only of guessing what your questions are, and they simply send you canned responses that have nothing to do with your issue. I really want to know why Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook all work fine from afar, and Comcast's remote access is unreliable. The response I got was a canned explanation for how to forward email. When I said that's not what I wanted to know, I got a canned response to fill out a survey. What?!

    DB:2.74:Webmail Unreliable mx


    I can't speak to why you might be having connection problems in foreign countries, but your issues with getting help are familiar. If you click Help from a Comcast page you will go to the Customer Central page

    http://customer.comcast.com/Pages/Help.aspx

    and on the lower left you will see three options: Ask Comcast, Live Chat, and E-Mail Us.

    - Ask Comcast will get you to an automated attendant that will parse whatever you type in and try to help you with a relevant canned response or route you to relevant online help.I have found itcompletely useless for any but the most basic questions.

    - E-Mail Us will give you a form to fill out and email, and for the first round or two at least an automated attendant will again reply with its best guess ata relevant canned response. I have had good luck with replying to the canned response and saying no, that wasn't my question, all I want to know is ______, and I did get a usefulanswer from a human being. This was several years ago, however, and I don't know how many (if any) actual people still respond to emailed requests for help.

    - Live Chat will connect you with a human being who may be able to help you. My experience here has been mixed: I have gotten some right answers, but also some wrong ones. Live Chat is your best bet for a quick response, however.

    If you want a correct response, I recommend these forums. There are Comcast employees monitoring the forums (their user names are red), and there are also a number of volunteer mods here and some just regular users (like me) who will answer your questions if they know the answer, and not try to pretend they do if they don't. If you have a really knotty problem usually one of the Comcast mods will jump in.

    Hello,

    Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration. Since this feature was added to Firefox, it has gradually improved, but there still are a few glitches.

    You might need to restart Firefox in order for this to take effect, so save all work first (e.g., mail you are composing, online documents you're editing, etc.).

    Then perform these steps:

    Click the orange Firefox button at the top left, then select the "Options" button, or, if there is no Firefox button at the top, go to Tools Options.
    In the Firefox options window click the Advanced tab, then select "General".
    In the settings list, you should find the Use hardware acceleration when available checkbox. Uncheck this checkbox.
    Now, restart Firefox and see if the problems persist.

    Additionally, please check for updates for your graphics driver by following the steps mentioned in the following Knowledge base articles:

    Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems

    Upgrade your graphics drivers to use hardware acceleration and WebGL

    Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!

    Comcast's email systems are generally very reliable and stable, and I'm sure uptime is somewhere north of 95%. If you are having that many problems, it's probably because you have an issue or problem on your system or perhaps with your connection. If other things work fine, it's more likely a problem on your computer and not a connection issue. You don't say how you access your Comcast email account, nor what kind of problem you have, nor any details really. We'd love to help, but we need specifics to try and figure out what's going on. And by we I mean myself and other customers here on the forums.

    Hello Abh

    Welcome to the eForum,

    Data usage on USB modem devices is often hard to estimate, this is due to the different formats of data available on the internet, for example, video streaming can come in different types of quality, generally the better the quality the more information you are streamlining and in most cases the more data you use.

    When it comes to downloading this is even more 'data hungry', downloading videos instead of streaming (ie Youtube), in terms of connectivity this also depends on 3G coverage in your area.

    opera mini, opera mobile(now classic) and opera for android show how well "text reflow" works for desktop pages on mobile devices.
    before the opera mobile EOL I never needed mobile versions of pages.

    firefox for android already has a text reflow feature, but it is hidden away and unusable because of 2 easily fixable problems.
    1. "text inflation", it's completely unnecessary to require enlarged text in order to reflow but with this feature disabled(text to smallest size) there is no reflow.
    2. "fixed zoom", currently double-tap zooming will always put the text fullscreen(which on a desktop layout is still too small)
    a "fixed zoom" option that always zooms a set % regardless of where you double-tap should allow zooming in to a level where text is readable and should force "text reflow" to reflow text to screen-width.

    so why are we still stuck with either messy or unreadable text on desktop pages?

    you seem to have missed the point of my post.

    firefox has 2 methods to make desktop pages readable on phones, "text reflow" and "text inflation".
    text reflow is disabled by default and doesn't work properly because of a few unchangeable settings, even though it is proven to be a very effective and reliable method to make desktop pages work on phones by opera's browsers.
    and text inflation is broken because it can never accurately determine what can and can't be inflated.

    and my question is why we're still stuck with using text inflation when text reflow is a much better option?

    Microsoft has closed down their hosted marketplace for windows mobile devices, but there are still some great 3rd party websites that sell windows mobile software. You can also purchase a lot of really great applications from the developer sites. Some
    of the third party marketplaces I use and recommend as good places to get windows mobile applications include:

    Handango (now owned by Pocket Gear)MobihandThird party developer websites (many developers sell apps from their own website - this is really my preferred place to purchase windows mobile applications)

    The Windows Mobile OS is at the end of its life and you probably won't see many new or upgraded applications for windows mobile since many of the 3rd party developers stopped developing for windows mobile a long time ago, but you can still get several
    more years of excellent use from your phone.

    Are you looking for any specific applications for your phone right now?

    DB:2.70:Firefox Problems With Slow And Unreliable Dialup Internet Connection mk



    I have a slow an unreliable dialup internet connection. This is all that is available in my area -- no form of 'broadband' internet is available, not even satelight (I have too many trees in the way).

    What happens is that due to the poor quality of the analog telephone system (very old and poorly maintained copper cables), my modem drops the internet connection from time to time -- it *usually* dials back, but sometimes I have to manually restart the connection. Because the the connection is so slow, it takes a long time to completely load pages and if the connection is lost in the middle of loading a page, Firefox seems to become 'confused' and even if I stop loading the page and then try to reload it, it does not do so. I have an external modem, so I can watch the blinking lights, so I know when data is being transfered (I also have a connection monitor feature as part of my dialup connection software which shows a bar chart of data transfers over the dialip connection).

    I *seems* like what is happening is that Firefox has open network connections that become 'void' when the connection is lost and then reconnected and Firefox attempts to re-cycle these connections. Or else it has 'worker threads' that have become confused or wedged.

    Are there settings that I can set (eg with 'about:config') to deal with these issues?

    Maybe it helps if you toggle the File Work Offline setting on/off.

    DB:2.70:Is It Possible To Force Firefox To Load A Url In A Tab When Opening A New Page (Before The Page Has Loaded)? c7



    Recently when using a rather unreliable internet connection I'm often get dropped connections that prevent pages from loading.

    In the past this used to result in an "Unable to connect to server page" when the timeout happened, which was fine as I could just refresh the page.

    These days however the page is timing out when the page is still on the about:blank stage (or stuck on the current page), before the url has been updated, so I'm losing the address.

    Is there any way to force firefox to update the url as soon as the page load request is made, as opposed to when it recieves a response from the server (which is how it seems to work at the moment)?

    DB:2.70:Is It Possible To Force Firefox To Load A Url In A Tab When Opening A New Page (Before The Page Has Loaded)? c7



    If you click a link then Firefox may only be showing the URL on the location bar if at least there is a connection to the server.

    If you are on Linux then it should take minutes before the connection times out, at least that is what I see (on Windows it is only 20 seconds). This might be different in case the connection drops.

    There should be a try again button of the net error page to reload this link.

    Don't you see such a button?

    You can start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools Add-ons Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools Add-ons Appearance).

    Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.

    A possible cause is security software (firewall) 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 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.

    == Always?

    DB:2.68:Why Firefox Stuck Ten Seconds And My Hard Drive Is Reading After 2 Minutes? c9



    If that is happening just once a day, I would suspect that Firefox is updating the urlclassifier3.sqlite file when that happens. That is the Safe Browsing - Anti-Phishing / Malicious Websites database file that is updated once a day = it is usually updated the first time Firefox is used each day.

    http://kb.mozillazine.org/Urlclassifier2.sqlite
    older version of that file

    Deleting that file, which forces Firefox to create a new version of that file, may work to make the daily updating of that files less system intensive or noticeable. A fresh load of that data will result in a much smaller file for Firefox to deal with. Data never seems to be removed by that file, only added. And it can get to be quite large. I have seen it as large as 67MB - on my system the lag seems to start when that file is about 60MB.

It fails to transfer almost all of the time with more than one or two files (so the only way to get stuff on and off is it zip files). And even with one file, it still fails 50% of the time. Nearly every transfer has to be tried twice. It'll give a communication error, or say the connection was dropped, etc. I've tried with Cyberduck, Transmit, Flow, and Filezilla, all with the same results. The FTP client built in to Dreamweaver has the same issue, and generally works every other time, but only with one file.Any ideas as to why this might be ocurring?

I also got a case with a clear cover. It's difficult to make the wheel even move at all with the case on. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm surprised after all the time the iPod has been around that they're still using this stupid wheel.

    DB:2.65:Why Don't They Use Arrows Instead Of A Wheel? da

    You didn't sound too harsh, and just to let you know it is not only the web I would have said the same thing to you in person. I was going for sarcasm in repeating your statement back to you. I had been reading posts from another person who was saying the iPod doesn't work right because it doesn't match the way he does things. And if you stick around long enough you'll read a lot of posts where people state that because the Ipod/Mac/Powerbook, etc. doesn't do this ONE thing they want it to it is destined to become a failure.

    If yours is broken take it back and exchange it then give it some time. I think eventually you'll find that you like it.

    DB:2.64:Why Is My Gigapower Showing Slow Speeds Almost Daily??? p1



    I live in Dallas and have Gigapower. I should be getting 120Mbps down up. At random points in the day I will get any where from 8-30Mbps down up. Had a tech out here. They couldn't tell me what was wrong. They called customer service and had them "reset" my account. That fixed it for well a day or so.

    This service is so unreliable and so is the support. I wish they could tell me why it does this.

    Not only that, but try to get any meaningful assistance on weekends. It seems that Adobe, in spite of the ridiculous prices it charges, only owrks part-time. Some of us actually have to work on weekends and the inability to get real assistance is crippling. Some Adobe products are good, but their arrogant treatment of their clients will not do them any good.

    DB:2.64:Is Xl2007 Inherently Unreliable 7z


    Is XL2007 and perhaps XL2010 inherently unreliable? Or is their installation procedure unreliable or error-prone?
    I keep reading postings like "Excel 2007 stopped working" or "Excel 2010 hangs".
    Normally, I would dismiss them as individual problems, not a systemic issue.
    But then I read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/919196/en-us, "How to troubleshoot Excel 2007 startup problems", with the following abbreviated description:
    "When you start Excel 2007, you may experience problems for any of the following reasons:

    Corrupted shortcut to the Excel 2007 program Problematic file in the Excel startup folder or in an another startup folder Conflict with another program Incorrect version of a core Microsoft Office file Corrupted Excel toolbar file (Excel.xlb) Add-in is not valid Registry key is not valid"
    Of course, those things can happen to any version of Excel, and most can happen to any application.
    So why single out Excel 2007?

    DB:2.64:Is Xl2007 Inherently Unreliable 7z

    I do accept the fact what you told 'joeu2004'.
    But you have seen cases where
    All office applications printes but not excel aplpication(change printer)
    Excel will not display color but other applications displays color (change theme \ high contrast\ display settings)
    If you have addins in Excel and its corrupt\incompatibilty, it crashes.
    Compared to all other office applications. Bottom line i meant to say is alot matters for the excel application crash and without that articles wouldnt have been so popular or help resolved so much.
    I do accept the fact that i am not expert in advance functionality of excel , but i was in the excel support before and that was my answers are :).

    Keep Eye on your TIME, Not on your WATCH.

    DB:2.64:Why Firefox Do Not Make Autoconfiguration In Windows Firewall Or Any Other Firewall To Allow mc



    Cannot find server is the main problem I have.
    One of the reason, is firewall would have blocked the firefox.
    But, on solution , it was suggested to allow firewall thro windows firewall.
    When i open the settings, i could not find the Mozilla in the allowed program.
    I opted for change settings and opted allow program and then add the mozilla.
    my question is even unreliable programs make their automatic allow entries in windows firewall without noticing us. But not Mozilla. Why this happens?

    I learnt from support article that you could add Mozilla to the allowable program. Why firefox itself could not make to configure it automatically, whenever it updates or not?

    What is the difference between private public check box? in windows firewall for fire fox.

    DB:2.64:Why Firefox Do Not Make Autoconfiguration In Windows Firewall Or Any Other Firewall To Allow mc

    Question owner


    Hi, When installing some programs, they automatically configure with the firewall so that no problem.

    But in firewall settings, the firefox does not shown up. So to say, that Hp printer auto configure with firewall so that it found place.
    I have done the update by clicking about firefox in the help menu as usual. Know that firewall could not be controlled by any third party programs.
    My question is how is that you have to go to the add the mozilla firefox to allow it to run to avoid system not found error. When all the programs auto configure itself it to be allowed by firewall.
    I hope you understand my query

    DB:2.63:Why Are Ff29 And Australis So Extremely Bad Compared To Older Firefox Version? What Were The Developers Thinking When Producing This Catastrophy? s9



    mumei,

    Don't feel like I'm shutting you down because I'm not. philipp is right. This is intended for technical support only and not general discussion. You can submit feedback to the developers here: https://input.mozilla.org/en-US/feedback

    I will say a couple of things before.

    We are all volunteers, not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.
    To be perfectly blunt here (quick disclaimer: this is my opinion as a volunteer and in no way is the view of the Foundation or Corporation) I don't see Australis going away at all. The change is too new and I doubt Mozilla will pull back the UI just because some users don't like it. Even if they did go back to the old UI, Mozilla would be going backwards instead of forward into innovation which is what they're best known for.
    If you want tabs on bottom, please download the Tabs on Bottom extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tabs-on-bottom/
    If you want to restore Firefox to the old layout, please download the Classic Theme Restorer extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer/

    This is all the information I have and I'll be closing this thread as it's not a support request. Please direct feedback to input.mozilla.org/feedback using the latest version of Firefox.

    Thanks for your understanding!

    Just 2 and a half hours of music / web browsing (Bluetooth Off, Background App Refresh Off, No Push Mail) drains my 2 month old phones battery to 14%. It dies so often that its becoming really unreliable as a phone!!Thanks for any help

    DB:2.63:Why Is My Iphone 5c Battery Life So Bad? s1

    I'd suggest you run for a while with just the standard apps that come with iOS rather than reloading all your stuff. Then if the battery life is good, you'll know that it's probably something to do with your apps, and if the battery life is still poor, it narrows it down to being a likely hardware issue.Regards.

    I have been using Firefox for over 2 years and like the (unreliable) Windows Explorer before it I took for granted the ability to open multiple tabs. 2 days ago my computer downloaded some updates (even though I try to stop it) and after the compulsary restart I cannot open more than one tab in Firefox, even though the browser apparently invites me to. Is this an attempt by Microsoft to saboutage Firefox to build up support for its own product?

    Did you check the Knowledge Base crash articles and tried the various suggestions?

    Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.

    See "Basic Troubleshooting: Make a new profile":

    https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Basic+Troubleshooting#w_8-make-a-new-profile

    There may be extensions and plugins installed by default in a new profile, so check that in "Tools Add-ons Extensions Plugins" in case there are still problems.

    If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from the old profile to that new profile, but be careful not to copy corrupted files.
