Firefox fails (not opening the most visited, slow, shows blank pages)(Mac)(4.0.1)

Hi, guys,

My Firefox is acting weird.
- Doesnt open Google searches from the top right bar
- Doesn't open news links from the drop-down RSS feed menu
- Doesn't open Facebook, Gmail, YouTube and a few other frequently visited websites through the normal address bar
...instead, I get ~10 seconds of loading and a blank page with empty address bar, called "New Tab."

Furthermore, the majority of other websites are opening slower than usual and often some of the content is missing (like captcha for online polls)


Version 4.0.1, Mac OS X 10.5.8, cookies kept until Ff closed. Clearing all the history was futile. Sorry if such a problem has been posted, but i find it un-Googlable.

I keep popping up on this site from time to time.
Try disabling all addons, extensions and themes, clearing the cache and localStorage.

Whats localStorage?

I disabled add-ons and cleared all my history :)() last night and it didn't immediately work. I haven't reinstalled.

For the record, since this morning it has been working as usual. With all its previous settings.

    I really do not want to move to California otherwise I might consider it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah California is not anywhere you really want to live
  • The Helper The Helper:
    That is why I did not take the job Blizzard offered me back in the day, there is no way I could have moved my family there on what they were offering, not even close and that was like 20 years ago
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah they wanted me on the tech support team when they did not get me they got one of the next MVPs in Dinobot
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot was one of the youngest of the MVPs tkron probably could have worked for Blizzard but he had a good job in Chicago doing business programming already
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot probably still works for Blizzard would love to reconnect with that guy
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I wonder what ever happened to Wargasm?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    This new version of Xenforo really is awesome
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Wargasm is still around. He works for the domain registrar where thehelper.net is kept.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is sqrage still around?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have not seen him on lately the forum says he was last on 2 years ago
  • The Helper The Helper:
    How are you doing Varine have not seen you around in a minute
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    lol I live in CA
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    I've got some friends in animation department who have been applying for Blizzard, doing interviews and such. They said the workplace seems nice, though now it'd be all remote work I suppose
  • The Helper The Helper:
    good for them I live close to Austin and am trying to get my kids interested in getting into Games but not having much luck. I would never let them move to Cali.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    unless it was huge money
  • The Helper The Helper:
    and even then with the taxes I really could never let them move there
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    Haha fair enough, I have no interest in CA at all as a living place either. Really only here just for the work in LA, but hopefully once I get settled enough in my work, I can move out
