Videos from youtube, facebook, or other sites won't play. Quizzes from a learning site won't work. All play fine in Explorer. I have updated flash and java. I have disabled my add-ons.

When a video is supposed to play, I either get a screen that won't load OR....an error message saying to try again later. In youtube, I see all the thumbnail videos on the side, but can't play anything.

Oracle Application: R12.1.3 Firefox Version: 15.0.1

Oracle form is not launching and displays below message.

"In order to access this application, you must install the J2SE Plugin version 1.6.0_07. To install this plugin, click here to download the oaj2se.exe executable. Once the download is complete, double-click the oaj2se.exe file to install the plugin. You will be prompted to restart your browser when the installation is complete."

Java version is already installed and even I downloaded and installed from the link in this message. But not working.

In my colleague's PC, it is working, he has below plugins in his firefox but not in my firefox. From where can I get these? I tried installing these java versions after installing firefox. But not appearing on firefox plug-in page.

Java Development toolkit 6.0.270.7 6.0.270.7 Java(TM) Platform SE 6 U27 6.0.270.7

Please help me how o get these plugins on firefox. Not available in search plugin in firefox.

I'm stuck with Babylon as a homepage. I used REVO to remove the toolbar but something in the process must have gone wrong because the homepage keeps coming back. I cleaned the About:config as stated in earlier posts (mstone, homepage and new tab) and when I restart Firefox the first tab is firefox and the second babylon. When I close and startup firefox again then the first tab is babylon and I'm back to square one. The removal of the browser manager seemd too technical to me and I didn't dare to do it. Any suggestions?

Hello!

So this last week Firefox has been causing me to have some SERIOUS problems! From time to time I cant view any kind of videos or anything, it just makes my Firefox crash and not loading or anything.

I cant even listen to my own music on my computer :(

I never had this problem before and getting this now is so annoying!

I got Firefox updated, same with Adobe flash player and all that! And as I said, I NEVER had this problem before and I've been using Firefox for alot of years now.

I cannot change the search engine permanently. I changed in about:config manually the search machine. But if I put in a search string into the address, the "old" engine shows me the results again. Also in the search engine management on the right side (sorry, using german version, so I'm not totally sure about the right name) I cannot delete the engine. If I delete there the search engine, FF ignores my command. Thank you for helping me!

I've tried clearing all my history, cookies, and everything else on Firefox, but it doesn't fix the problem.

Whenever I try to comment on a post in facebook it says "Unable to post comment." And it won't let me like any posts either.

Google Chrome works perfectly with Facebook. I don't want to quit using Firefox, but unless I get a solution soon that may be what I have to do.

Firefox is really starting to annoy me. Sometimes it runs slow and sluggishly, other times it doesn't. Usually it does though. When I open new tabs, the connection icon will just keep swirling. I constantly get High CPU Useage alerts from my virus protection. I've done everything listed in the below articles. Does anyone have some advice? Firefox didn't use to be like this.

Thank you.

Whenever I try to play a video in fullscreen the video plays normally for a few seconds but then soon becomes very choppy except when moving my mouse... which is weird. The video is fine when it's normal and not fullscreen. (Except the videos on IGN.com. Both normal and fullscreen are like that.) First time I noticed it was just a few days ago. Also it's not just one video kind of video player (like youtube's video player, Upload2, etc.) It's all of them.

This is the first time this has ever happened to me and I couldn't find anything like this through searching.

I cannot seem to see certain websites "full" site. On Ebay...I only see text all piled up on left. If I click thru enough I can see an image but I want the full site. Not the second class citizen version. Also same with Netflix. Amazon is great. I've troubleshooted and cleared cookies and cache. I reset and now I'm using safe mode with add ons disabled but still nothing helps.

BTW...I'm very untechnical. Im using a laptop with Windows Vista OS if that helps.

Id also like to be able to use my amazon prime account to stream videos but naturally nothing shows up.

Please help. SOS.  : )
