Firefox does not load pages unless moves the mouse or keyboard is pressed


I saw this problem listed several times before this post, but none of the solutions have helped me.

I am using Firefox for ages and the latest 3 updates or so were expose this problem. When I try to load a website, Firefox will start to takes me to the page and then hang. The circle in the tab will stop moving and it will stay there until I move the mouse or press a key on the keyboard. As long as the mouse moves permanently or the keyboard keys are pressed, the page will load very well. The same thing happens with YouTube. The video starts and then freeze unless the keyboard/mouse is moved. Firefox also has this problem when I try to download a file from a Web site. The download starts and then hang on until I move the mouse or press a button, then it will continue for a few seconds and hang on again until I repeat the movement of the mouse or press the keyboard button.

So far, I tried to update Firefox, Java and Flash; Starting Firefox in Safe Mode; uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox: do a complete uninstall and reinstall of Firefox with removing profile and creation. I ran ad next and malware detection with no infection found tools: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, SuperAntispyware, and AdwCleaner scan Microsoft security, Windows Defender, Spybot Search & Destroy, utility Kasperky free Security Scan and Anti-rootkit TDSSKiller.

The only thing I tried that 'seemed' to work was from Windows Mode safe mode with networking and run Firefox there. I was able to watch YouTube videos without freezing and websites seem to load properly. Of course, I can't run in Mode safe all the time.

I've attached a screenshot of what it looks like when Firefox crashes on Google News. Note that the images in part loading, but a good number of them is waiting or not loaded.

I hope someone can help me, because I like Firefox and I wouldn't switch to Chrome or (shudder) IE.

Thank you in advance for your help!

  • Firefox does not load pages and said "Stopped" in the lower left corner of the screen.

    Latest FF and XP Pro. 2.4 Ghz Celeron processor, 1 GB of RAM. FF will work for awhile then it will stop loading pages and say 'Stop' in the lower left corner of the screen. Sometimes I can refresh and the page loads, but 95 out of 100 times I can keep refreshing and it will say "stopped". Alternatively, the page will be partially load and then quit and say 'stop. ' I disabled IPv6 and DNS Prefetching and he always does. IE does the same. VERY frustrated. My last PC started doing this and I've finally upgraded to a newer version and it was fine for a few months, but began to do the same thing recently. Arghhh... Thank you!

    This has happened

    Each time Firefox opened

    is with my last computer a few months ago

    You, me and many others (from discussions throughout the net) have this same problem. I had a few glances at Mozilla, take a look, they couldn't find a problem or a solution.

    Here's what I found works - the problem arises on me when I upgraded to Firefox 3.63. 3.63 FF of uninstall and install 3.59. You can always download until the end of June or July I think.

    My problems went away with 3.59. Seems to only affect users of Windows as Mac Firefox 3.63 works very well.

    Found a few discussions pointing to ZoneAlarm Firewall time-out managers and some download tools. I have ZoneAlarm, so I don't think that was the cause, just another victim.

    I wish Mozilla would pull the plug on 3.63, repackage as 3.64 3.59 and go back to the drawing board until they find out what is wrong.

    Hi mate

    Sorry, but you message I am really hard to understand

  • Firefox does not load pages; GUI is messed up.

    Since this morning, Firefox is really messed up. There seems to be some general interface problem. My toolbars have been rearranged and change for them, I can't open the pages when a dialog box opens the text is missing from the computer, etc..

    I've just updated the BIOS of my computer last night, so that could be a factor. I have also two add-here-above update last time I ran Firefox. I want to disable them to see if they have the problem, but I can't really do anything in Firefox, so I can't disable anything. Is there a way to disable add-ins manually from outside the program? If I reinstall, is there a way to protect my favorites? My story seems to have disappeared already ("but I don't know if it's actually GONE or just don't show up").

  • 26 of Firefox does not load the home page. Instead, it loads the previous session (and that includes all tabs). It does not matter how Firefox is closed.

    26 of Firefox does not load the home page. Instead, it load the previous session, regardless of what has been entered in 'Options '. The browser runs in Win 7.0 64 bit; Norton Internet Suite 21 provides security features. There are some solutions 'cloud', also running as Google Drive, box, Skydrive and Cubby. The browser behaves in the same way in all my machines (installation and the OS is similar to that described above) and no amount of reset 'Options' seems to affect it. Nor is it affected by the way that Firefox is closed. This is obviously a bug that should be fixed.

    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.

    Hi everyone, it has been so long that I tried to solve my problem on Safari.

    -Close the Safari window and open a new

    -Wait at least a minute or two

    -Spam the shortcut for refresh up to what a "page not found" error.

    I tried all explained in this or other forums and do these things:

    -Reinstall the operating system (but keeping my data)

    -Restore with a Time Capsule

    -Open the terminal and type these commands:

    -Fixed permissions and owner

    sudo find ~ $TMPDIR... - exec chflags h nouchg, nouappnd, noschg, nosappnd {} - exec chown () $UID h - exec chmod + rw {} + - exec chmod () n h ++ - type d - exec chmod h + x {} + 2 > & -.

    -Unplug my micro sd card and reboot (which is constantly plugged into my mac)

    I am so angry with my computer because I paid 1.5 k for a computer that is not able to make the task easier for a modern computer. Even a €50 computer has embedded software that can handle a resume from sleep without having to restart the entire software... Imagine if you had to do it on your iPhone, you will eventually get a refund within a week or less because it is not normal in 2015 to have this kind of problem. I hope that I have no problem with safari on my 6s and I don't plan to spend my browser because Safari is part of the Apple ecosystem and have the perfect sync and battery management.

    So I need to get this fixed a problem and I really need your help because a lot of people had this problem on the internet, but NEVER seen someone who explained how it happened is the correction of a problem. My Mac running the latest version of the software which is 11.2 starting today.

  • Firefox does not load with a certain wifi

    So I have this problem, Firefox does not load when I connect with a wifi but when I change my connection to different wifi, that's going to walk again.
    even if the first wifi works fine on my computer because I can connect to the internet with another browser.

    Many programs can "phone home" for the updates and such.
    These work yet?

    Type of topic: preferences #advanced< enter > in the address bar.

    Under Advanced, select network.
    Search for configure how Firefox connects and then press the settings button.
    If you use a proxy server, make sure that these settings are correct. If there is no
    proxy, first use No. Proxy. If there is a problem, then try Proxy system.

  • Firefox does not load.

    Firefox does not load. I have installed Kaspersky Internet Security and everything was working fine until it wasn't. I then uninstalled Kaspersky, but Firefox still load.

    Since I love Firefox I restored my computer to an earlier state and that fixed everything, then I installed another Kaspersky product and everything was perfect. Now the problem is back.

    I don't know if the problem is on the side of Kaspersky or Firefox, but I would prefer not to restore again and I have no more troubleshooting ideas.

    Firefox starts in safe mode of Windows.
    When I double click on the Firefox icon the mouse indicates the load of the FF, but then, it does not start. Chrome starts very well.
    Contacted Kaspersky, but their first troubleshooting tip didn't work.
    Under Event Viewer, I can see the details of the accident for Firefox, but I can't read and I do not know if they are related to the FF does not.

    I'm agree with unintelligible Firefox and then put it back, but I don't want to lose my bookmarks, modules, themes, etc.

    Any ideas would be appreciated!

    You can start Firefox in its own Mode safe? Hold SHIFT and start Firefox: You could at least make backups of Mode without failure. I heard wrong with anti-banner Kaspersky features, if you can try to disable browser protection components in Kaspersky to see if he can coexist with Firefox on your system or not.

    If you need to back up things without starting Firefox, go to your profile folder copy. It must contain everything down to your history of bookmark backups and extension settings.
