Firefox stops responding when I try to access anything other than the home page; even after reseting and reinstalling it.

I have tried resting Firefox and even sacrificed all my data (bookmarks, add-ons, saved passwords, the whole shebang) for a clean installation. Firefox Stared hanging and doing the "(Not Responding)" thing with a whited-out window. Thus force me to force close Firefox.
This happened as soon as I updated my computer (running Windows 7) and the Task manager is show high usage of processes. All my other browsers work (Chrome, Safari, and even the god forsaken IE) don't hang when trying to leave the home page, browse fine, and close and reopen perfectly.
Needless to say, I'm annoyed with this development.

Did you try the minimize memory usage. If not then try it by following method:
- On your navigation bar of Firefox write about:memory
- Click on the button "Minimize memory usage"
Hope it will work!
Unfortunately, I can't even use the navigation bar without triggering the high process usage thing. So this is not an option.

It is possible that your security software (firewall, anti-virus) 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 and the plugin-container from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full, unrestricted, access to install for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.
You can check if you can start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> by holding down the Shift/Options key.
Tried this stuff as well. Turned Norton off and it didn't work. Restarted my computer with Norton off, still didn't work. And Firefox didn't wok after I turned Norton back on. Safe mode also doesn't work.

  • Firefox stops responding when I try to play words with friends, eventually a box pops up about script

    First, let me say I have the latest version of Firefox and Adobe Flash Player and Java Script. When I click to play Words With Friends (on pc) my computer starts racing and sounds loud and every thing freezes. If I try to click on slider or anything else, it says Mozilla Firefox (not responding), then it takes several minutes and a box pops up that says something about a script, do I want to continue or ?(I can't remember), after I click continue, I can play the game, but, at any given time Firefox will stop responding again!! A box also pops up from AVG saying that Firefox is using too much memory. Just an aside, I can play Scrabble on Facebook without any problems whatsoever. Please help, it is driving me crazy. Thanks

    Sounds that you are missing the plugin that is used to play those videos embedded in Firefox.<br />
    Your system details list doesn't show any media player plugin, so you will either have to check if the plugin(s) are installed, but disabled or install missing plugins.
    You may need the new WMP plugin (np-mswmp.dll) because Flash always uses a dedicated player to play the videos and would never offer to save videos directly unless an extension is used.

  • Firefox stops responding when I try to clear my cookies-or it just does nothing.

    Yesterday, I tried to clear my cookies-for security-I clicked on the 'clear' button and then I got the spinner thing. It then went to 'firefox is not responding'. One time-yesterday-when I clicked clear-it returned to the original 'clear cookies' screen-but I checked. It hadn't cleared anything. I was also getting the 'bad script' thing. I ran my anti-virus. Things were fine.

    Didn't work. My cookies still haven't been cleared and I got a 'not responding' message when I tried to return to a prior screen.

  • Safari stops responding when I try to bookmark (and other slow problems!)

    Two weeks ago my logicboard died, so I sent my ibook out to Apple for it to be fixed. Ever since I got it back this past Tuesday, my Safari has been extremely slow, but nothing else is wrong with my computer. Here are the problems:
    - The biggest issue is that Safari stops responding when I try to make a bookmark. The popup appears to select the bookmark's destination and to enter the name, but when you hit ok, the rainbow wheel comes up and it stops responding, so I have to reset Safari, and now I can't make new bookmarks at all.
    - It lags when it tries to open new windows, especially new tabs.
    - If a new page loads that scrolls at all, and then I try to scroll down, the wheel appears for several seconds until it can load the rest of the page. It's as though it gets stuck before it can scroll.
    - Sometimes when typing, it will also start to lag behind my typing speed, or if I try to click on a new field, it will not immediately allow me to type on occasion.
    All these things have never happened before I sent it out. I have reset my cache, and I have tried entering the open DNS addresses in my networks, which has improved loading speed, but hasn't fixed any of these problems. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong and how I can fix anything?

    Try verifying the hard disk.
    Boot from your restore disk while holding down the C key until you see the Apple logo, then let go of the C key. You'll see an Installation window, select English. From the Menu Bar, select Utilities/Disk Utility. Select MacintoshHD 10.x.x in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab, then click Verify. If DU reports errors, click Repair. If Disk Utility cannot repair the disk you have several options. One is DiskWarrior or
    TechToolPro If Disk Utility can repair any errors, go back to the Menu Bar, click Utilities/Startup Disk. In the Startup Disk window select MacintoshHD 10.x.x and click Restart.
    If you don't have a restore disk, try booting into Safe Mode

  • Thunderbird stops "responding" when I try to enter a password why? this is new today.

    As of this afternoon Thunderbird stops responding when I attempt to enter a password. The accounts have been working for years with thunderbird until today. I can open thunderbird in "safe" mode but that is not useful since plugins are disabled.

    I ended up removing v 1.0.1 of "Provider for Google Calendar" plugin; installing v 0.25, then re-setup the Google calendar
    These instructions are where I found the different location link to use while setting up the calendar in thunderbird/lightning.
    The gmail calendar location prior to today was linked to a "googleapi://... .../?calendar=email address... etc." link.
    After I added the new gmail calendar to thunderbird the location link is to " etc."

  • When I try to access iTunes I get 'The file "iTunes Library.itl" cannot be read because it was created by a newer version of iTunes.' But when I try to download iTunes I get error (-42408) please.

    When I try to access iTunes I get 'The file "iTunes Library.itl" cannot be read because it was created by a newer version of iTunes. Would you like to download iTunes now?'' But when I try to down load I get "unknown error occurred (-42408)". Don't know what to do next and I can't get into my iTunes library. (I have an iMac, OS10.6.8.)

    Did you uninstall iTunes 11 and replace it with iTunes 10.7? If so, you'll need to go through a few steps to put things right:
    Rename "iTunes Library.itl" to some other name;
    Copy newst ITL file from the "Previous iTunes Libraries" folder into your main iTunes folder and rename it to "iTunes Library.itl";
    Download iTunes 10.7:
    Download/install shareware app called Pacifist;
    Open Pacifist and, separately, mount iTunes DMG file -- drag iTunes PKG file into Pacifist and install iTunes via the Pacifist application -- be sure to answer yes to replacing everything Pacifist asks about;
    Enjoy iTunes 10.7.

  • LabWindows/CVI 2013 SP2 stops working when I try to open a file using the project file menu.

    I have windows 7 on my system and sometime late last year I starrted getting a Windows dialog telling me that LabWindows/CVI has stopped working when I try to open a file from the project file menu.  I also get an error when I run a project debug mode and use a selectFilePopup in the code.  The error says, "The program has suspended execution at address 0x75D5025E.  No source line information is available."  I've tried removing and reinstalling CVI to no avail.  Any suggestions?

    Thank you for your response.  I've attached screnshots showing the version details for kernal32.dll and ntdll.dll.  I also looked at the updates to see which might have been installed when the problem started.  Unfortunately there are 15-20 updates every month.  I didn't take note of when the error started to occur.  At first it only affected my ability to open files from within the project (i.e. file->open->Source, etc).  Then I went back to modify a project that had a SelectFilePopup and found that that wouldn't work either.

    Welcome to the Apple community.
    Once three iCloud accounts have been created on any iOS device, it can you no longer be used to create any more accounts, regardless of what you do to it. You will need to use a computer or another iOS device to create your account and then use the details to log into your account on your phone.

  • Firefix stops responding when I try to open a web page

    The Firefox browser page turns white & says not responding when I try to go to a web page. This happens every time I try to go to a web page in a new tab. This only started happening after I did the last Firefox update.

  • Firefox stops responding when opening dialog box

    I recently had a problem with redirecting Google results to a variety of random websites. I ended up running ComboFix and that problem went away. Since then however, I have noticed that I cannot open any dialog boxes through Firefox (file upload, save as, download, options). Whenever I try the browser freezes and when i try to do anything it says it is not responding. I then close the program and sometimes I have to end the process in the task manager in order to open Firefox again.

    Do a clean reinstall.
    Download a fresh Firefox copy and save the file to the desktop.
    * Firefox 5.0.x:
    * Uninstall your current Firefox version.
    * Do not remove personal data when you uninstall the current version.
    Remove the Firefox program folder before installing that newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.
    * It is important to delete the Firefox program folder to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.
    Your bookmarks and other profile data are stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder and won't be affected by a reinstall, but make sure that you do not select to remove personal data if you uninstall Firefox.

  • Firefox locks up when i try to do anything on it

    I wa ussing firefox yesterday and all of a sudden it 'locked' up. I restarted it and the same thing happenned--many times. I removed firefox and reloaded it from a new download exe. Same thing happens when I try to do anything.

    '''Hangs Loading first firefox window'''
    1. Right-click the shortcut icon you use to start Firefox.
    2. Select Properties.
    3. Select the Compatibility icon.
    4. Select Run this program in compatibility mode.
    5. In the drop-down for compatibility mode, select Windows 98/Windows ME.
    6. Click OK.
    7. Restart Firefox to see if the hanging has gone away.
    '''Hang loading every Firefox window'''
    The SwitchProxy Tool extension checks for updates each time a new window is opened.This is a known issue. If you use SwitchProxy Tool, you can disable it to see if hanging is prevented:
    1. At the top of the Firefox windowOn the menu bar, click the Tools menu and then select Add-ons. The Add-ons dialog appears.
    2. Select the Extensions panel. The list of installed extensions is displayed.
    3. Select SwitchProxy Tool.
    4. Click Disable.
    5. From the menu at the top of the Firefox windowbar, select FileFirefox and then select the ExitQuit FirefoxQuit menu item.
    6. Restart Firefox. Open several new windows to see if Firefox no longer hangs.

    Have you tried resetting all tools?

  • A window asked me to close firefox.exe so it could do something (AVG I think). Now, I can't open Firefox at all even after uninstalling and reinstalling.

    When I took my laptop, which is running in XP, to get rid of a
    number of trojans, etc, the computer tech put AVG on it. Since
    then, I have been getting random notices from AVG. I got a
    notice and clicked it before thoroughly reading it, assuming it
    was another one of these. It said something about closing
    Firefox, and I thought it needed to close Firefox so it could
    scan something. Ever since, I click on the shortcut or the file
    itself to no avail. Nothing happens. I've even tried
    uninstalling and reinstalling. Have I unknowingly changed my
    administrative settings?

    #In the menu bar, at the top of the Firefox window, Go to Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions.
    # Locate ''each ''of the following extensions by name and click the disable button
    #Restart Firefox as prompted and see if the undesired toolbar has been removed.
    #The extensions to disable are: '''Crawler Toolbar''', '''MP3 Rocket Toolbar''', '''MSN Toolbar''', '''Search Helper Extension'''
    If you don't need some / all of those toolbars, consider leaving them disabled.
    You can probably remove these toolbars permanently from Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs.
