Firefox and display Crash?


I walked away for a bit and when I came back, both my monitors had ceased a little (not sleep or screen saver) and Firefox crashed. Above is the crash report. I don't know what happened.

    It's the version 28.0 + build2-0ubuntu2. Reset profile has no effect.

    OK, apparently something was broken with my Software Center. 28.0 version is quite old, after all.

    So I launched the Update Manager and updated everything to 14.04.1.

    Now, Firefox is running and displays 32.0 in his 'A connection' dialog box.

  • Hello. I installed the latest update of Firefox and when I start a new tab page displays not now my entry from google line.please help.tks

    Hello. I installed the latest update of Firefox and when I start a new tab page displays not now my google input line. I use Windows 10. Until the recent update (v4.1.01) each time I started a new tab the new page would show the google search entry line which is my default. Can help you to restore this feature? TKS

    Hi, 41 of Firefox, you must use the add-on tab override (browser.newtab.url replacement), to make changes to the page tab.

    Once installed, open the Add-ons (Ctrl + Shift + A) Manager > Extensions, and then look for the new tab override and click Options to set your preference.

    Notice, if you want only the new tab to be the same as your home page, you can use the Add on new tab homepage instead.

    You will then need to restart Firefox for all changes to take effect.

    If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you.

  • At startup, Firefox still displays my windows and labels last time, even though I have selected the option to view my homepage.

    More details:

    I also tried to start by selecting a blank page. Always on starting Firefox displays the windows and tabs from last time.

    I also deleted the (renamed) prefs.js file and restarted firefox. This step NOT solved this problem.

    Help, please. Thank you

    You can check if you have a user.js file in the Firefox profile folder that affects the pref browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once true value.

    The user.js file will be present if you or a other software created this file and normally will not present.

    You can check its contents with a text editor (right click: 'Open with'; do not double-click).
    The user.js file is read whenever Firefox is started and initializes the preferences to the specified value in this file, so the preferences set via user.js can be changed temporarily for the current session.

    You can remove the user.js file if you do not create this file yourself.

    You can use this button to go to the current Firefox profile folder:

    Windows hides certain default file extensions.
    Among them .html and .ini and .js and .txt, and you can see only a file name without file extension.
    You can check the file extension (type) in the file properties in Windows Explorer via the context menu.

  • I installed jZip, it crashed Firefox and does not start again; How can I get Firefox to work once again, preferably without uninstalling?

    I installed jZip and it crashed Firefox, I tried to restart Firefox, but it wouldn't. I uninstalled jZip, Firefox didn't work; I restarted the computer and it still does not work. I can't use even run Windows to pull up the profiles. Is there something I can do to get Firefox to work again without reinstalling? I really like to use the session restore but its so erased its uninstalled.

    Yes to aid,

    Start > Search > firefox.exe /ProfileManager {ENTER}

    I got to the profiles.

    I'm fed up and uninstalled Firefox, when he asked if I wanted to erase all data associated with Firefox I did not and when I reinstalled it straight last session here, I assume that this sort of program file has been damaged and has stopped working. Put it back, fixed everything that was wrong.

  • Firefox stopped play videos on some web sites and displays all graphics on the other. Have you Windows error msgs before videos stopped.

    A few times I got messages Windows error on a problem with Firefox and security, but I don't remember the exact wording of the error message or of what Windows disabled.

    Now on some news sites, I can't play videos, it is happening now on YouTube where I get an error message when I try to play a video.

    I also have problems on the site of the major League Baseball with the browser displaying some graphics.

    I restarted Firefox several times and even restarted my computer, but this has not solved the problem.

    Any ideas as to what went wrong or how to force Windows appears the error message again?

  • Why the firefox rendering engine go berzerk and display garbage?

    As I scroll or I go to a new page, more at any time, the display in the window of Firefox becomes badly displayed. It is pehaps diagonally across the window or perhaps a sub display field appears distorted diagonally. I could send a screenshot. It happened a bit when you use Thunderbird, which I understand has the same rendering engine but not lately. If I close Firefox and start it again, it might behave for a while. He quickly began having problems again. Right now, as I type this, this pane for entering text flashes on and outside, and it has now begun to go diagonal to its display. At the same time, I continue to type text. Is it possible to send some screenshots? As I type this and then to the bottom of the page, try to copy and past the information requested below in case of problem, I had a lot of trouble with the screen turning autour. Finally, I noticed the link to copy all to the Clipboard to paste below. I can't tell you if he did because I can't get the window below to display correctly.

    Instead of boot mode safe, you can try to turn off the use hardware acceleration where possible of Tools (Alt + T) > Options > Advanced > general and restart Firefox normally.

    You can also take a screenshot using the PrtSc / SysRq key on the keyboard. This takes a picture of the whole desktop, copy the memory/Clipboard and you can paste it in any graphics program, save it and download it. To take a just active window press Alt and the key above together.

  • Firefox and Nvidea graphics drivers crash at the same time.

    This rare, occurrence in general on Facebook but I think it's just because it's a page I'm often, and that overall the site has no impact on this.

    Sometimes my two drivers graphics and Firefox will crash with the result no entry on my monitor for a few seconds and a dialogue of Mozilla crash and small ball of task bar telling me my drivers have crashed and valued.

    While this doesn't happen often, I am always curious to know why Firefox crashes my graphics drivers sometimes and yet I played many games intense and never had a single accident.

    Graphics card is a Nvidea GTX 460 and drivers in DXdiag version is and in the popup something along the lines of 285.2 bubble, I'm not really sure on this last because it disappears quickly.

    Also happens on my machine. Accidents cause usually just of my screens only blinks several times, but sometimes it forces me to hard reset my computer because it is not recover.

    With the help of 2 GTX460 SLI. Windows7 64 bit. Latest version of Firefox and accidents have taken place for months with several previous versions of firefox as well. In addition, the latest stable nividia drivers.

    And come to think of it, I think that the accidents began when I installed my second graphics card.

  • In the old version of Firefox, when I opened a new tab, firefox remember and displays open previous tabs. I could automatically click a prior tab which has been opened to open it again - as my mail. This feature is available in 6.2?

    In the old version of Firefox, when I opened a new tab, firefox remember and displays previous tabs open when I click on the + to the new tab. This display last has shown several places I visited and I could automatically click it to bring up this last point of view. In this function, I could go to one of my last 6 views quite easily and make it appear one of them as a shortcut.


  • I change the settings of firefox and accidentally closed on the display tab, which displays the files, settings, and tools. I can't see how to reset it back to default where I can see those?

    I change the settings of firefox and accidentally closed on the display tab, which displays the files, settings, and tools. I can't see how to reset it back to default where I can see those?

    You can hide the menu bar in Firefox 3.6 on Windows, on "view > toolbars" or via the contextual right click menu on a toolbar.
    Press in and hold the Alt key to display the menu bar.
    Go to "view > toolbars", right click on the menu bar, or press Alt + V T to select the toolbars to show or hide.
