I started my computer this morning and everything seemed normal, yet once I got on youtube, every video i tried to watch wouldn't play properly, even though yesterday things were fine, and I've never encountered this problem before.. I hadn't updated, installed or otherwise changed anything between the two days and everything else works just fine.. Whenever i start a video the sound chops up and skips/lags like it can't keep up.. It's hard to describe.. Kinda like if one listens to a CD with lots of scratches... I initially assumed that it was a Flash Player issue.. But after updating both Flash Player and Firefox to the latest versions the problem still persists.. I now assume it is a Firefox issue, as I have tried viewing the videos in other browsers, and they play just fine.. I have no idea what is causing it.. And I would appreciate any help or solutions you could give me.. I'm also not that big of a computer expert, so please forgive me for anything seemingly obvious I might have overlooked.. Thanks in advance..

Mac OS 10.6.8, Firefox 16.0.1, PDF Viewer 0.6.39 installed. In Firefox>Preferences>Applications, PDFs are supposed to be handled by the PDF Browser 2.4.4 plug-in for Preview. However, when I try to view a PDF in Firefox, I get this:

"We are sorry, but Adobe Reader is unable to show documents in this browser configuration.

"Please use your browser to download this file and open it in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.

"To avoid this message in the future, many browsers provide a way to turn off certain add-ons, and some are able to show this document natively. Please contact your browser vendor for more details."

Why is Adobe Reader trying to open the PDF when Preview is the default? How do I disable Adobe Reader from doing anything in Firefox?

Ok, here's the deal.

After long use Firefox starts to lag like crazy with Flash. And... It doesn't seem to be a problem with Flash. It's more likely that the browser itself what is causing the issue.

After I use Firefox for some time Flash starts lagging badly. BUT! This happens only if I have my Firefox window active. If I open the Task Manager on top of Firefox window, Flash stops lagging as if Harry Porter himself cast a spell with his magic stick making everything work like a charm.

I made a small video showcasing the bug: https://www.dropbox.com/s/l2c5pbn1xwy58dc/12-11-2012%2019-07-15.avi

- The bug still appears even in Safe Mode (all addons disabled).

- With hardware acceleration disabled in Flash bug still remains.

- With Chrome and other browsers everything works fine.

- The bug will go away after restart - and then will start to appear after Firefox is in use for some time.

- Normally it re-appears after I close my laptop's lid forcing it to go to sleep mode. After it wakes up - the bug is there.

- There was no such a bug in the past - it started to appear as new Firefox versions were released - don't know the exact version but I assume it all started from version 14 or 15.

Any thoughts?

I use to be able to view local PHP files normally in Firefox with the PHP parts not rendered while the HTML parts are. Now all it does is ask whether I want to open or save it.

I've tried editing FF options so that it previews in FF but it doesn't accept any changes. I've cleared my cache and all that. I've tried deleting the mimeTypes.rdf file thing but I can't even find the folder it's in. I've tried disabling/enabling "prompts.tab_modal.enabled" in about:config and restarting FF.

All are no-go solutions.

Web PHP pages are loading properly, this problem only comes when I'm trying to load local PHP files. I don't want to install XAMPP or PHP on my computer just to view local files as I never had this problem before.

In the meantime, I've installed Chrome and it's loading a simple local PHP file just fine whereas FF is asking me to save/download when opening the SAME file. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi

Some of YouTube videos (not all of them) are not working for me. the videos isn't running, its just a blank box.

I have Firefox 16.0.2 I also have Flash 11.4 (was 11.3 and both didn't work out well) I also downgrade to 10.2 and it did not help ether. I also run Firefox on the Safe mode with all Addons/Extensions Disabled and that did not help too. I also installed the latest Realplayer. I tried disable/enable Hardware Accelerator.

each time I try a solution I hit the Ctrl+F5.

my current theme is Default.

I just tried to Reset Firefox to its factory settings , and that did NOT solve the problem.

All of the videos that are not working on Firefox are working on IE9 on the same PC at the same time without problems.

Previous versions of Firefox gave option to sign off when I clicked downfacing arrow on top bar; now, with Firefox 16, arrow takes me to general settings with option to edit. No sign off option. Chrome lets me sign off. None of the other top bar buttons in FF 16 allow me to sign off. Very annoying, please correct.

Firefox: 16.0.1 Flash player: 11.4

- Running in safemode - Latest video drivers

When on a youtube video, I can move the mouse around the buttons and it will take about 3 seconds for the mouse to travel between the buttons. The same happens on the BBC News website.

All other flash videos seem to function correctly.

Watching youtube/BBC news in IE works fine. Currently, FF is unusable for these websites.

This also happens in safe mode.

I've been having terrible trouble with an unwanted service called search conduit which has wormed its way into my firefox. First it changed my homepage, which I reverted. Then whenever I searched something in the address bar, instead of google, search conduit would handle it instead. I read some other questions on here, and found out how to stop this by changing the browser search value in about:config.

However, one problem remains. Every time I open a new tab, instead of being a blank tab like it used to, search conduit's page loads instead. So I went to about:config and changed browser.newtab.url to about:blank, which is what other answers that I read suggested. Problem solved, or so I thought. But nothing has changed; when I open a new tab it's not blank - it's still search conduit.

This is beyond a joke. It's actually disobeying orders. It's "overruling" me! I was going to uninstall firefox and download it again, but that's too much hassle what with bookmarks and the like.

How do I purge the devious search conduit once and for all? I've looked in add-ons and plugins but I can't find it. I'm at my wits end.
