This isn't so much a question as a link to direct others to the correct solution/work-around.

My wife's Mac Mini with OS X 10.6.8 was "auto updated" to Flash Player 13.0. Immediately she began to have issues with the plug-in crashing in Firefox. I worked for about 2 hours deleting and reinstalling FP 13.0. I checked and verified the disc and all the usual "housekeeping tricks to no avail.

Long story short: FP 13.0 doesn't work with Firefox (or apparently I.E.). The work-around is to uninstall FP 13.0 and reinstall FP 12.0. Here is a link to another recent thread to make this happen:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/994287

The response is from a forum moderator. And it works.

FYI: if it is your usual practice to let Adobe automatically update itself, you might be better served by selecting the second radio button and have Adobe simply notify you there is an update ready to install. You only get this option when you install Adobe updates. I never let any software "auto update" itself ...and this is a perfect reason why.

As i told i have Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit version. I install java and have problems with Java Deployment Toolkit and Java(TM) Platform SE. It won't show in add-on. I cant watch movies. When I play movie it says java is missing but when I use IE I can watch some movies. I try reinstaling Java and even reinstall Windows. But problem was still there. I run java check (from Firefox) to see if java is installed and it confrmed. I even try diferent versions of Java and Mozilla. I even use JDK and JRE. I install java for 64bit and mozilla is also for 64bit version of system. I have another laptop with 32 bit version and everything works great. Installation procedure was same (only used 32bit versions of softwares). When I go to control panel and java options (windows 64bit) enable java content in your browser is marked. But in advanced tab default java for browser (mozilla family) is unmarked. And when I mark box and leave (apply then ok) and return box is empty. It wont confirm. In 32bit version of laptop i have alsou java plugin but in 64 bit it is not there. Here is a picture what I was talking about. This is on windows 32 bit for 64bit is some just box for mozilla family is empty and under that java plugin do not exist. [code]http://s23.postimg.org/dl4dun4p7/Untitled.jpg/code

How to place the "add a new tab" button directly to the right of the last tab?

In Firefox 19.0.2, and in Firefox 20beta4, I have an issue that my "add a new tab" button keeps disappearing when I customize toolbars.

No problem, I can just do a customize, find the new tab button, and drop it right next to the last tab, right? Wrong. It doesn't allow you to drop it there, only all the way to the right.

This leads to a situation where the "+" appears when I am customizing toolbars, but is not visible once I finish customizing.

I can restore it by doing "restore default set." But then I have to start over on my customizations.

When it is all the way to the right, it is supposed to pin to the right of the last tab, right? But dropping it there creates a situation where the "+" simply doesn't appear in the regular interface.

Again, "restore default set" fixes the issue, but how can you drop it next to the last tab, or have it not disappear if you drop it all the way to the right of the tabs?

I am using firefox ESR v17.0.8 on Windows 7 with the firefox.adm policy template to customize some of my browser settings. I have specified a homepage to load on startup but whenever I start firefox the default firefox start page loads instead.

If I click the home button the correct page loads and if I look under Tools/Options/General it is set to load my home page and the correct home page URL is specified.

I have tried starting without any addins loaded but it doesn't make a difference. Suggestions?

When updating my plug ins I noticed a had 2 for shock-wave and 2 for java and also have Microsoft silverlight. I think I downloaded that in a attempt to get rid of Java. I of course am paranoid about using Java because of the recent security concerns. This is the beginning of my quest for knowledge to be able to make informed decision about my security. Point me in the right direction man,

I need to install an older version of Java on my Redhat 5 Enterprise workstation.

Since Firefox 17.0.5 the installation folder changed from /usr/lib64/mozilla to /usr/lib64/firefox. In the 64 bits version, there is no plugins folder, is that normal?

When I create the missing plugin folder and that I install the java plugin in it, it does not appears in the plugins list.

The 32 bits installation is working though ( /usr/lib/firefox/firefox ).

G'day, Yesterday I updated Firefox to which ever is the most current version (29) I have always had adblocker on my Firefox and it normally works and yesterday it was working fine pior to the update. However it doesn't appear to be working at all as I am getting ads on YouTube video's, one of the things adblocker is meant to remove as well as standard annoying adverts on many of the webpages I have visited, and visit regularly, which previously adblocker had dealt with and removed.

The first thing I did, as Ive heard that folk can get adverts from malware, I ran a security check of my system and it was all clear, no issues what so ever, so what I am wondering is if adblocker itself is needing updating or if there is something I am required to do ect.

Many thanks, Jim
