Until I disabled all add-ons, 'New tab' did nothing! Any thoughts?

{No Biggy}


                       The New Tabs box was totally unresponsive until I restarted Firefox with all Add-Ons Disabled.
    The main Add-Ons used were, FlashGot \ with Internet Download Accelerator (IDA), and 1 or 2 resizing tools, to reduce page size which was constantly oversize.
    Anyone care to shed a little light on what they think is a probable reason(s) why this occurred?

If it works in Mode safe mode and normal mode with all extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) off and then try to find which extension is the cause by allowing an extension at a time until the problem reappears.

Close and restart Firefox after each change via "Firefox > Exit ' (Windows: Firefox/file > quit;) Mac: Firefox > quit Firefox. Linux: Firefox/file > exit)

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}
    While you are in safe mode;

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

    Under Advanced, select General.
    Find and stop using hardware acceleration.

    that tells us something. If it is not the case, this tells us something else.

  • Firefox keeps crashing outside the safe mode (reset, uninstall-reinstall and disable all add-ons do not help)

    I've actually had this problem for over a year now with previous versions. The browser always crashes just after that I start it, but it seems to work fine in safe mode. I tried to reset the Firefox, disable all add-ons mode security and reinstall the application, but none of these methods does not seem to work. Here's the accident reports I after you have installed the latest version of tonight:

    Seems that the reason for the accident is "EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_READ", means something like that...

    Try disabling hardware acceleration in Firefox.


  • Cannot type in google documents, I already tried to disable all add-ons, but nothing has worked

    Any document from google that I try to use, I am unable to type in the google doc. I already turned off all the modules via the reboot to safe mode. This does not resolve the issue.

    Is there a way to remedy this situation?

    Thank you,


    I noticed this bug in Firefox 23.0 myself also.

    I'm sorry that it affects you too. Remember that Firefox Nightly is prone to have bugs like this from time to time. If you need something more stable try to use Aurora, beta or final version of Firefox. This bug in particular is not present in these versions.

    I created a bug for this find: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=865781


  • Spin the ball of death, have checked all add-ons

    Hi, use Firefox 40.0.2 on a Macbook Air the ball of spinning of death all the time recently and have only on Firefox... other browsers are ok. When I disabled all add-ons, the spinning ball will stop. When I laboriously disabled and tested one at a time, the ball turns never went away. How is that possible? Is there anything that I think not or anything else I can try? Here are the screenshots of all my Add-ons. Thank you!!

    Maybe it's time to try refresh (called "Reset" in older versions of Firefox) which can resolve many issues by restoring Firefox as his default from factory and save your bookmarks, history, passwords, cookies, and other essential information.

    Note: When you use this feature, you will lose all the extensions, toolbar customizations, and certain preferences. See article Firefox Refresh - reset modules and parameters for more information.

    Refresh for Firefox:

    1. Open the troubleshooting information page using one of the following methods:

      • Click the menu button

        click Help

        and select troubleshooting information. Should open a new tab containing your troubleshooting information.

      • If you are unable to access the Help menu, type Subject: support in your address bar to bring up the troubleshooting information page.
    2. At the top right of the page, you should see a button that says 'Refresh Firefox' ('reset Firefox' in older versions of Firefox). Click on it.
    3. Firefox closes. Once the update process is complete, Firefox will display a window with the imported information.
    4. Click Finish and reopen Firefox.

    Before updating, you might want to take note of your Add ons that will be deleted.

    This corrects the problem? Please report to us!

    Thank you.

  • I can not open a new tab when I click on the + to add a new tab, so I can't have several tabs open. How can I solve this problem?

    On my homepage, I have upward and I want to open a new tab. When I click to open a new tab, nothing happens. How can this be repaired?

    Hello lsmalls787, try Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode that disables certain parameters, disables most Add-ons (extensions and themes).

    If Firefox is open, you can restart Firefox Safe mode in the Help menu:

    • In Firefox 29,0 and above, click on the menu button

      click Help

      then select restart with disabled modules.

    If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Mode safe mode as follows:

    • On Windows: Hold down the SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.

    When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "start mode safe."

    If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to understand that one. Please follow the section Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems to find the cause.

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before you open Firefox for normal use again.

    When find you what is causing your problems, please let us know. This might help others with the same problem.

    Thank you

  • How to add the 'new tab' button next to the last tab?... I use version 9.0.1. and they are missing and I can't find how to add.

    I got the new tab next to open tabs button, but with a recent update of Firefox, the tab button disappeared. Went through all the help points, but how do I add the new Help tab is not listed. The only way to open a new tab is manually using the buttons on windows/t or opening the file and choosing the new tab.


    It could be that he is hidden behind another icon. Please try this: right click on the empty space after the last tab and Customize.... With the mini window open, you can move the other toolbars and icons to check if the new tab button is hidden. You can also check inside the mini window customize the icon named new tab or click Restore Default Set that will be hopefully restore back. Please note that if nothing is uninstalled or disabled when you click on restore by default, you will have to redo all changes to manual/personal toolbar.

  • When I click on the "Open a new tab" button, nothing happens. I checked my settings but all right, what's the problem?

    A few days ago all of a sudden wasn't the button "Open a new tab" and go to "file" then "open a new tab", it opens a new tab. I have to go into my favorites and right click 'open in new tab' for any new tab to open it. I checked my settings and nothing is there, on this subject. Can I do about it?

    Uninstall the toolbar Ask and it should work again. There is a compatibility issue with the Ask and Firefox toolbar that prevents the opening of new tabs.

    There are a few places to check for the Ask toolbar:

  • All add ons and suddenly wiped bookmarks.

    yesterday, I installed a new antivirus on my computer windows 8 (total kaspersky IPSec 2015) and did a full scan. everything was fine. money without danger causes a computer total freeze which is weird, but he was doing this on my old kaspersky as well. ID recently updated firefox to the latest version, so I wrote chalked it up to a compatibility issue.

    well worked all night, he's walking this morning, still all good.

    I decided to try secure just money one more time quo all of the computer, had to make a forced shutdown of freezing.

    When I started the computer after that, I found that all my firefox settings have disappeared - all preferences, bookmarks and Add ons have disappeared. I have a theory that this may be due to a file damaged due to the forced shutdown, but is it possible to recover these parameters?

    I don't know how to restore the addons.
    I have not checked the restore bookmarks - theres no available restorations.

    my whole profile has been deleted?

    Well, I think I got this resolved, perhaps?

    In this case, I took everything that was in the old profile and everything I have copied in the new profile, it ignores if she refused. It has restored all my bookmarks and addons as they were!

    ((although I'm having a little trouble with google apparently being a non-secure site - but that could be a separate problem))

  • Last update adds a new tab with social media links to the exsisting homepages. How can I stop this?

    When I open Firefox, my home pages (4) shall, after a slight delay, a new tab appears with links to social media and the new tab is active. I want to stop the new tab to open!

    Uh-oh, you may have installed a non official package containing the update. If your download history indicates the source, can report you here?

    Your "more system details' shows the extension MySearchDial. I recommend you to remove that from the addons page (if possible) or from the control panel.


    • CTRL + SHIFT + a
    • Firefox orange (or the Tools menu) button > Add ons

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then find MySearchDial and remove (or at least turn it off).

    If necessary, open the Control Panel, uninstall a program, then click on "installed on" heading of the column to bring recent infections, uh, additions, upward.

    Hopefully he cleaning?

    I am currently using Firefox 4(.o.1). When I checked the Add-ons tab 'extensions' Manager, there is no extensions, and it says here "you don't have additional modules of this type installed".

  • Firefox 3.6.10 broke all add-ons

    I installed the 3.6.10 patch, all modules are disabled, 1password, adblock, web development tools.

    You can force Firefox to rebuild the list of extensions installed by deleting a few files. If one of these files is damaged, it can cause problems with Add-ons does not. For more details see the files extension corrupted article Impossible to install add-ons section.
