Did you consider the possibility of a corrupt configuration directory?
Maybe try starting Firefox with a fresh profile?
$ firefox -ProfileManager
I have been running Firefox nightly for a few years now. I sometimes
face problems like this, but in nightlies that is to be expected. And
more often than not, it turns out some config issue.
Hope this helps,
Yes, I thought of that but since several other people are having
problems with the 37.* versions (on Fedora 21, CentOS 6.6, and others) I
still think someone introduced a bug in the Firefox code (maybe while
adding another new feature we don't need). I went back to version 36.0.4
and it is working perfectly, and is a bit faster than 37. I didn't have
to change anything else, so I will assume it's not a profile or config
Does anyone know the right way to make Firefox not auto "upgrade" to the
new crappy version when it starts up again?
