    Firefox 36.0.1 not showing random images on facebook


    Hi

    This started a few days ago where some images in my feed show as black boxes. For example after scrolling for a couple of pages a photo posted will show as a black box. If I click on the picture it opens ok in a new view. Then I will scroll another couple of pages and the posters Icon will not show up, Just a black box.

    Things I have done to try and resolve. Refreshed firefpx, deleted cache, deleted user profile, uninstalled and re-installed, disabled adblock plus, disabled hosts file. Running out of options.

    Doesnt happen in IE11 or seem to happen on other pages. Clearing the cache seems to fix for a few pages then it starts again.

    Anyone suggest a fix?

    Tim

    I don't use chrome so I wouldn't know, but as Banger mentioned it doesn't happen with IE11.

    I downgraded to 35.0.1 and that is fine.

    That's not exactly a fix. I've sent feedback to Firefox. Hopefully they will correct the problem.

    I think I have solved it. Turn off hardware acceleration in options and the problem seems to be solved, for me anyway!

    I'll try that banger. Are you still running firefox 35.0.1 or did you reinstall 36.0.1? I also downgraded and all has been fine for the past few weeks but over the past few days it's slowly started doing it again. I just bought a brand new high end laptop about a month ago. I never had the problem on my old computer which I had for 10 years and was running Windows 7. I'm hoping it's the hardware acceleration issue you spoke of. In my search for a solution I found an interesting link showing iphone users having the exact same problem so, I'm not convinced it's a firefox issue. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6563683 other than that link I'm not finding a lot.

    Seems fixed totally in V37.0.1. I ran V36 with hardware acceleration off and enabled in V37 and it seems fixed for me.

Just so I know I'm not going crazy. Am I the only one getting random Firefox 4.0.1 crashes? Most of the time it works fine, and then random sites (Ironically, mainly Windows 8 and Mozilla sites) cause it to crash, and it can't be recovered until I get rid of those tabs.
