I am having trouble getting Java to work in Firefox (Opera too) on Mac. http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp?detect=jre tells me "We are unable to verify if Java is currently installed and enabled in your browser." Notice that when I access the page, Firefox wants me to activate Java in a pop-up. I did this.

I know that Java is installed because I can open the Java Control Panel. The setting "Enable Java content in the browser" is checked and Security Level is set to High. I have tried setting the security level to a lower setting, but that doesn't help.

I have verified that the Java plugin is enabled. I have tried clearing Java cache via the control panel - no luck.

I realise that Apple has blocked Java according to this article: http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/01/31/apple-again-blocks-latest-version-of-java-through-os-x-anti-malware-system. I have been able to get Java to work with Safari (this doesn't help for Firefox) by editing the file /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta.plist, but that is only a temporary solution, as it shouldn't be necessary to do this edit.

Version details: Mac OS X 10.8.2 Firefox 18.0.1 Java version 7 update 11

In previous versions of Firefox, like 19.0, it is a simply matter to disable graphics and/or java. Simply go to Firefox "Tools", "Options", "Content", unclick "Load images Automatically", unclick "Enable JavaScript".

With Firefox 23.0.1, I don't see that as a option. How do I easily disable and enable the graphics and javascript?

I am aware that "Adblock" has some capabilities to do some of this. Although I find Adblock more complicated and have not been able to achieve my goals with it.

This is very important to me.

Since upgrading to firefox 20.0.1 my download helper is not working like it used too.

Before updating to Firefox 20.0.1 I would click on the "Download Helper" icon and choose what format I want to download, then a box would open and show my various downloads in progress. Instead I've noticed that instead of the the normal box opening there is this little arrow in the right-hand corner that I have to click on in order to see what is downloading and when I close the browser the progress box that I used to be able to see is no longer there and also I am now UNABLE to continue downloading like I was able to with downloadhelper!!!

I can't speak for anyone else but I prefer using Downloadhelper as opposed to the so-called downloader that has been built into Firefox 20.0.1.

How do I get the download helper to work like it used to and how do I get rid of that annoying download arrow in the right had corner?!

If the powers that be are going to make improvements concerning security I'm all for it but I want to the option to choose whatever addons I want to use without having them made unusable whenever there is an "upgrade".

When the window opens to ask if I want to save or not comes up it does so for WORD documents just fine, however, for PDF documents it never asks (it used to). Now it just automatically saves them without asking. I need this changed. I went into applications and changed the setting to always ask but it still is just saving, them no window pops up asking what I want firefox to do with the file like it does with a WORD document. IF I cannot get this resolved I will not be able to continue using firefox. I teach and I have students submitting articles etc in pdf format, I cannot constantly save all pdf files. I just want to open them, review them and then move on. There must be a way to change this so that the window asking what I want firfox to do with the pdf files opens. thank you, kkwright

I have looked and haven't found anything on this subject. I'm using Firefox 16.0.2. on a Windows 7 system. I get these ads in a banner covering the bottom of my screen. If I click the "X" button, it will disappear for a little bit and reappear. If I click the "disable" button, it'll appear as a side bar and it doesn't have a "disable" button on it, just an "about this ad" button.

If I click it's "X" button, it reappears as a banner at the bottom of the screen. While the ad is in the side bar position, I get this annoying banner at the bottom saying "related: ".

How do I disable this? It's annoying and I get enough ads on the websites I search.

This just started a few months ago. I cannot open a PDF from a search engine with FF (version 22). I click on a link (PDF) and FF opens a blank tab. I have searched Options-Applications-Search for PDF, and nothing comes up. However, in the applications tab, I can see Adobe Reader (default). PDF opens just fine with IE 10 and Google Chrome. I have read through all of the other posts regarding this issue, and I have tried the advice there to no avail. Can someone please help me? Thank you!

I have seen a lot of answers here that don't appear to understand the real problem. The key here at one time I chose to DISABLE the reminder on the pop up. The "Do you want Firefox to remember this password" box doesn't pop up anymore.

All history has been cleared, all sites and passwords have been cleared. Under "Security" tab "remember passwords for sites box" is checked and under "Privacy" tab "Always use private browsing mode" is disabled.

The last time this happened, I uninstalled/re-installed Firefox. Is that the only solution?

Google is my default search engine. But for whatever reason, whenever I search a site in the address bar, the first 3-10 possible solutions appear next to a magnifying glass, and when I click them, they are automatically searched through bing. Even google. I do not like bing and do not want to use it; I have tried everything I can find to get rid of this problem, but nothing is working. I installed an add-on so that when I open a new tab, the page is my homepage, which is google. I tried the about:config way to get rid of bing from the address bar but it did not work. It is extremely aggravating and annoying to have everything, even google, pop up in bing searches. Does anyone know what is going on?

Mozilla Plug-in page showed Java was outdated and needed updating. I did do that but the plug-in page still shows Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.90.5 10.9.2.5 & Java (TM) Platform SE 7U9 10.9.25 as being outdated. But when I go to my add-on page and check my plug-ins, those are both showing up as being installed and enabled and the date I updated them on which was today 12/12/12. Also I went to www.java.com to check what the latest version was and when you click on downloads it automatically checks to see if you are running the current version and it says I am running the latest version. I even went and uninstalled some old java updates that I forgot to remove in my programs. Should I just ignore the *outdated* plug-in reminders for those two on Mozilla's plug-in page since everything else is telling me I did it correctly? Thing is, how do I know when there is a new update if those two never update and consistently show they are outdated? Thanks to anyone that may be able to answer this question.

This isn't as much of a support question as a design decision question. I know that WebM is to remain open, and h.264 isn't sure, but from what I can tell from these results:

http://www.streamingmedia.com/Articles/ReadArticle.aspx?ArticleID=68594&PageNum=1

The CPU usage difference is immense, which honestly is an issue for a lot of PC's. h.264 is way lower on CPU usage, and seems to be superior overall. Are there any plans/talks to move that to being an open standard, and will Firefox ever support it?

I understand Firefox is an open source browser, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't support some standards if they are as dramatically superior as this, even if it wont always remain open, drop it at that time instead of just not picking it up.
