Firefox will not open windows that are linked on a site, for example reviewing a piece of work that has a link which opens it in a new window.

There are links on site that open in new windows and close after you are done. Like A review link/box. The window opens but it's a blank page and the url books just says "search bookmarks and history".
== This happened ==
Every time Firefox opened
== I changed a theme/Just before I upgraded firefox

Do you have that problem when running in the Firefox SafeMode?
''Don't select anything right now, just use "Continue in SafeMode."''

  • Firefox will not play .ogv video files when loaded from a server. Does anyone have any answers that will fix this?

    I've read the suggestions for fixing this, and none of them work. I've updated my .htaccess to match MIME types for .ogv, I've uploaded the files as both Binary and ASCII, neither method works. The .ogv file plays fine when you load it from a local file, but it will not play when viewed from a remote server. I've confirmed with my hosting company that the .htaccess and all other issues for HTML5 are up-to-date. Safari and Chrome play the HTML5 videos just fine, but Firefox will not. Does anyone have any concrete answers as to what the problem is. I'm also serving up the video files as .webm and .mp4, but neither of these formats works in Firefox either.

    That can happen if the server isn't configured properly to send the files with a by Firefox supported MIME type.
    Did you check via the Web Console which headers Firefox receives when requesting the .ogv file?
    If that is OK then it is possible that the file is using an unsupported coding method.

  • Firefox will not recognize web pages with .aspx suffix, keeps asking for a program selection to open the file.

    Searched for "st davids austin" on Google. In results clicked on listing for St David's Hospital North Austin. Apparently the site is written in ASPX and FF will not open it. It keeps asking for me to make a program selection to open the page. When I select FF as the program it just loops back and asks the same question again.

    1. That is caused by a few different Bugs in Firefox 3.6 and earlier versions. It looks like it was fixed for Firefox 4.0.
    2. Firefox doesn't go by the "system default printer". Firefox goes by the last used printer in Firefox as being the "default" in Firefox. It will remember the "last used in Firefox" and will use that printer until you switch to another printer and then remember that one.

  • I have My.MSN for my home page and firefox will not load the information on movie theaters AND my stock pics. It used to work fine but after last update these features no longer work

    When I load my home page, the items MOVIES THEATER and my STOCK QUOTES will not load. If I try to make ANY changes to my home page it changes from changes to and nothing will happen.
    If I loan MSN and copy the address bar and paste it to the Firefox browser, it will load properly the first time BUT will not load properly again.

    Do you actually know what the issue is, or are you simply rambling?

  • Firefox will not start, have repeatedly reloaded it form your site, on my XP (SP£) PC?

    Desktop icon / exe file will not start Firefox. Have repeatedly downloaded it & works for a short time & then fails. Also experiencing screen freezing, having to restart PC - are these connected?

    A possible cause is security software (firewall,anti-virus) that 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 internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.

  • The website I use for my online college work is Moodle. Firefox will not let me upload my documents on this site.

    I have been using Firefox as my default browser because in the past it has worked best with Moodle. Moodle is what my college (University of LA @ Monroe) uses for online classes. We are required to upload documents and assignments for our course. This has always worked fine in the past. Now, it will not let me upload using Firefox. I can only upload using Explorer. The process for uploading is to "browse" our computer for documents and then "upload." I get the message on the bottom left "sending request to" but then it gives me an error (id not found) or just gets hung up. I have been emailing the ULM help desk and they can't see a problem from the ULM/Moodle end of it.

    I have this problem too. It appears to have occured with Firefox 12 and above. IE will allow me to upload so it's nothing to do with firewalls and anti virus etc. I am loathe to return to the Microsoft product but will do so if a satisfactory result cannot be found.

  • Firefox will not load. There are no error messages.

    Firefox was working fine. Then the next time I turned on the computer to use it the program would not load. You click on the icon, which in pinned to the bottom toolbar, and it will show it has been clicked then never load. I have tried to use Program manager but can not even get program manager to work. I did find the program profile and renamed it, uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled and it still would not load. I also moved the profile to a different location. This did not work. I do not have a recent enough restore point to go back to when it was working. After uninstalling I also restarted the computer prior to reinstalling the software.
    I would prefer to use Firefox as my browser but have no idea what else to do. I am on a PC and use windows 7 ultimate.

    Do a clean reinstall and delete the Firefox program folder before (re)installing a fresh copy of the current Firefox release.
    *Download the full Firefox installer and save the file to the desktop<br>
    If possible uninstall your current Firefox version to cleanup the Windows registry and settings in security software.
    *Do NOT remove "personal data" when you uninstall your current Firefox version, because this will remove all profile folders and you lose personal data like bookmarks and passwords including data in profiles created by other Firefox versions.
    Remove the Firefox program folder before installing that newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.
    *(32 bit Windows) "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\"
    *(64 bit Windows) "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\"
    *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 personal data are stored in the Firefox profile folder and won't be affected by an uninstall and (re)install, but make sure NOT to remove personal data when you uninstall Firefox as that will remove all Firefox profile folders and you lose your personal data.
    If you keep having problems then also create a new profile.

  • There are several sites which Firefox will not load images. The rest of the site loads correctly, but the images simply do not appear.

    (There is no error message, loading message etc, just white space). These images load correctly in Safari . The sites include, & and are the item photos for specific items listed on the site. I've tried many of the troubleshooting tips. help!

    Probably third party images, such as those of the manufacturer

  • Firefox will not "auto fill" email addresses in Yahoo mail. How do I get this to work?

    This used to work. I have a new laptop and am not sure if this is a laptop issue, a Yahoo issue, or a Firefox issue. It is very annoying to have to go to my address book every time I want to send an email because names are not recognized. This was not a problem on my previous lap top. I also think that this was not a problem with the previous version of Firefox.

    Odd that grant_cm reported this a year ago, and it only started happening to me in the last week or so. What's more, email autofill with Yahoo still works for me in Safari on my Mac. I prefer the Firefox browser, but this issue is a real pain, and what's more your CAN'T insert a list from you address book. Sure would like to know what happened and how to fix this.

  • Firefox will not go back and forth one page / one site using Mac Lion one finger scroll back and forth - how do I do it? Thank you.

    ... just upgraded to Lion from Snow Leopard. Swiping a (one) finger (left) back and (right) forth should move the pages / sites back and forward.
    It does not on Firefox but does on Safari.
    Please tell me how to make Firefox work.
    Thank you -
    Wm. Pordy

    You can get the drop down list by either right-clicking on the back/forward buttons, or holding down the left button until the list appears.
    If you want the drop-down arrow you can add it with the Back/forward dropmarker add-on -

  • Firefox will not start, even in Safe Mode. Evidence suggests that this is due to an incompatibility with the latest update of Java.

    Firefox will not start in WinXP. (I am sending this from an alternate browser.)
    I believe that this is due to some incompatibility with the latest update of Java. I believe that one of the tabs from my previous session included a Java application, and this is causing the difficulty. In recent days, since the last update of Java, I have had difficulty in loading linked pages with Java applications into Firefox, and have needed to switch to a different browser to do this.
    Now I cannot even start the browser, presumably due to the presence of a Java application on one of the restored tabs.
    When I now try to start Firefox, my ZoneAlarm security s/w presents the message "Java(TM) Quick Starter binary is trying to access the Internet." I click "Allow", but Firefox will not start. If I click "Deny", the same result. The same thing happens when I try to start Firefox in Safe Mode, I cannot even start Firefox in Safe mode.
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened
    == after recent update of Java

    You can try to disable the Java Quick starter and the Java Console extension in the Control Panel > Java.
    Control Panel > Java > Advanced tab > Miscellaneous >Java Quick Starter (disable)
    You can also disable the Java plugin in Firefox: Tools > Add-ons > Plugins

  • Firefox will not allow use of my Outlook 2003 email even when default it tries to use Windows Live.

    Using Firefox 3.6.12 on Win7, Outlook 2003 email. Firefox will not use my Outlook email even when set as the default, or when "always asked" is used. Always tries to open Windows Live when "sending link", or with website hyperlinks for email.

    This has all been done and the problem persists.
    It tries to open Outlook first, then the message "Navigation to this webpage was cancelled" and it proceeds to open Windows Live mail.
    I don't know if the problem is with Outlook or Firefox..

  • Firefox will not display basic content on certain (common) sites

    Hi there:
    On certain websites (common) ones Firefox will not display options on the website.
    These sites include Yahoo Mail, Twitter, Weebly.
    An example would be if there is a menu of choices such as delete, ad, tweet, etc. instead of displaying correctly it looks like a box with 4 dots.
    The other browsers are fine. I have the latest Firefox and this started with the previous version as well. I uninstalled/reinstalled without change.
    Windows 7 Computer/Norton Anti Virus.
    If allowed I can upload a screen shot.
    Thank you.

    > But I really don't want to allow all sites to use
    > their own fonts, just, in this case, Twitter.
    Exactly. It's not a very good solution to be forced to give up control/accessibility on every Web site, to fix a problem with just a few popular ones like Twitter.
    It seems like a pathetic accessibility fail on the part of Yahoo, Twitter, etc., but since the practice is likely to persist and spread, please, Firefox:
    => allow site-specific configuration of "allow pages to choose their fonts."

  • Settings: firefox will not accept easy hideIP. cannot get firefox proxy settings changed.

    easyhideIP will not be accepted by firefox and the prosxy settings of firefox will not change. They are set to auto accept but that does not work, the reload feature does not work. I have uninstalled firefox and reinstalled and the problem persists. I have no problem with IE 8.

    If you aren't able to connect in Firefox, but can connect with other programs, the most common cause is a firewall. See [[Firewalls]] for instructions on configuring firewalls. (Make sure you configure all firewalls that are installed)
    Another possibility is that you are in offline mode. Make sure "Work offline" in the File menu is ''unchecked''.
    For other causes, see [[Error loading web sites]]
