Just updated to Firefox 29.01 it does not at all. When I opened it that won't load sites that shows just the busy circle floating around forever. It is unusable.

28 Firefox worked fine, but when asked a pop up opening firefox update to 29.01 I found there was a lot of security issues for 28 so I've manually updated to the 29.01 by going in "subject, check updates, etc." Once downloaded 29.01 and got told to restart, I restarted firefox. When I opened it, I found that it is unusable. It will not open a single Web site. It does not load my homepage. It has all my before Favorites from the Favorites toolbar, but I can't go to anything. I closed and tried to run cc cleaner as I always do, but I get the message "firefox takes too long to close would you like to force a shutdown", but the forced shutdown does not close it no more. I opened the Task Manager to try to close it from there, but firefox does not appear. I don't know what to do. I am all this typing chrome b/c I can't use the latest version of firefox. I've never had this happen before. I also ran in safe mode and it's the same thing. Please help and please answer in simple terms, because I'm not a computer expert. I took a few screenshots I'll join. In fact, I don't see anywhere to attach a picture so I can not. Also, I don't understand the green "add automatically" button which is located under this box on the support page of mozilla. Also, when I went to help, on the page in the upper corner of firefox just now to check the version it says "firefox is updated by another body." That the devil which means? Never seen it ever. Appreciate any help.


Well, then I can say happily that I'm typing this on firefox yay! I managed to do work, and here's how it is for everyone who is having this problem (well at least this is the solution that finally worked for me). RESTART your computer. NOT simply stop there. It does not work (not for me at least). I rebooted the computer initially there are a few min b/c my was not analysis Norton and I wanted to analyze the new 'new installation' I had to FF. After the computer has been restarted, my norton worked. So I said Hey, maybe I'll give you my FF update 29.0.1 a last try before you install a new firefox, in the hope that maybe restart the computer would have worked. So I opened it and omg he loaded my homepage. It works! In addition, among other first problems I've come across is impossible to bookmark a site. I found the solution. Just go to the upper menu right (it has 3 horizontal lines) and right-click the little star icon that we're used to that means bookmarks. A small menu will appear. Click on "move to the toolbar", and which should put it on the top right of your browser so that you can bookmark things. Hope the tip of restart helps anyone who was having the same problem I was Firefox being unusable! And if you have the bookmark problem, hope it helps you too. Wow. I am so happy that I can finally use FF now! Also, I kept the setting of "no hardware acceleration off the coast." Do not precisely know what that did, but leaving since that works. Oh, one last thing: I closed FF and ran cc cleaner and had NO problem with her telling me that FF would not close. Then restart the computer that solved this way. Yay!

  • My google toolbar does not respond and when I open tools > Add-ons, a window pops up saying script is unresponsive, which is followed by firefox crashing

    When I try a search using my google toolbar it stops responding and when I open tools > Addons, a window pops up saying script is unresponsive, which is followed by firefox crashing. How can I fix it?

    It is possible that you have a problem with some Add on Firefox which is an obstacle to the normal behavior of your Firefox. Have you tried to disable all add-ons (just to see) to see if Firefox goes back to normal?

    Whenever you have a problem with Firefox, whatever it is, you must make sure that it is not caused by one (or more) of your installed modules, whether an extension, a theme or a plugin. To do this easily and cleanly, start Firefox in safe mode (remember to select disable all add-ons when you start safe mode). If the problem goes away, you know that it's an add-on. Disable them all in normal mode and allow them one by one until you find the source of the problem. See this article for more information on troubleshooting extensions and themes and this one for plugins.

    If you need help with one of your modules, you will need to contact the author.

    If the problem does not disappear when all add-ons are disabled, please tell me, so we can work from there. Please be afraid not to follow my instructions to the line, as everything can be easily undone.

  • Tried to download the last update, no compatible system, now browser does not work even when I tried to download it again. I have bookmarks, I want to come back.

    Currently, I have a Mac, version 10.5.8. My Firefox was slow so I tried to download the latest version. When it was downloaded, a message pops up saying that this version of Firefox is not compatible with my system. Well, ' don't quite no fault "I thought and I tired to go back to my previous browser.
    But when I went to click on it, there was a large circle with a line through it. I couldn't open anything. Firefox has actually been removed from my computer.
    Now it's ok if I can't start Firefox more but I got thousands of bookmarks, compiled over the years that I really want to go back. And I have no idea how to do that.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • can I get rid of 36? He installed an update and now firefox does not at all

    Firefox 36 is seriously broken

    He updated on my computer and now does not work. I tried all the suggestions and no help... don't come back to IE

    Hi wskossack, I'm sorry to hear that you have problems with Firefox 36. I also regret that we have not been able to get this working for you yet.

    If what you really want is to uninstall Firefox we can do. Of course, I have to ask if you'd be willing to let my help allows you to get the most up to the working version of Firefox. But Firefox is all about the ability to customize. If you want we can install the latest version of Firefox and you can use it until the next version comes out or while we work to get 36 Firefox works for you. I will try to cover all the options in my answer.

    First of all, I turn the uninstall of Firefox. If you want to watch the article click here that this can be done in 7 steps

    I would recommend that you completely uninstall Firefox and install again. This will fix likely problems you have right now. Because you're asking how to do this, I'll assume that you have not tried this.

    If you have Vista or Windows 7:

    (1) close all open Firefox Windows.

    (2) at the start menu click Control Panel

    (3) click on uninstall a program

    (4) from this list chose Firefox

    (5) click on uninstall (they are located up turds)
    If the uninstall wizard does not work, you can start it manually by running helper.exe, located in one of these locations by default:
    (32-bit Windows) C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\uninstall\helper.exe
    (64-bit Windows) C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla Firefox\uninstall\helper.exe

    (6) in the Firefox uninstall wizard click Next and on the next page, click Uninstall and then click on finish

    (7) to remove other files and folders that cannot be removed by uninstall it, you must manually remove the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations by default:

       (32-bit Windows) C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
       (64-bit Windows) C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox

    The uninstall program removes all the data user such as history or bookmarks. To completely remove these data, you must manually delete the folder containing your Firefox user profile:

       Click the Windows Start button.
       Type %APPDATA% in the search field and press enter to open the hidden Roaming folder.
       Open the Mozilla folder


       Delete the Firefox folder.

    Now, I'll go on how to get the latest version of Firefox installed on your computer. If you want to watch the article click here . If you decide that's what you want please read the article for more information security helpless.

    Firefox 35.0.1 was the latest version of Firefox, and you can get it by clicking here . The link is also in the article. If you do this, you will need to disable the automatic update. To do this, go to options, then go to advance. The title of the advance, there will be a subtab. You want to go to update. You can then select never check or to tell you when there is an update.

    So the only thing left is for me to help you with any problem you are having with Firefox 36. I hope that you will give me a chance. In any case, if you need more information or help with everything I went please let me know.
