I have made a website and it is using some custom font that requires @font-face for styling. I have used Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome to check if the CSS script is functioning and I have found that it is functioning well, except Firefox.

I have tried to find any resources or issues about it but it seems difficult. Is there any web programmers who know about this issue?

The following is the code:

@font-face { font-family: Yesteryear; src: url("font/Yesteryear-Regular.woff"); }

The details are self explanatory if you typed as poorly as I do and strike the wrong keys. I am actually surprised that even in typing up to this point, I have not bounced back to the middle of the previous text and either inserted what I am typing now or over-written what is already there. If I cannot find a solution to this I will need to leave Firefox and find a provider that I can really count on when I am in a hurry. For example, paging back on screen only to come forward and loose about 20 minutes of work. Ahh there it happened again. Twice actually. Enough eh !!!!!! James

If your only solution is to tell me to: 1.Restart my computer 2.Start Firefox in safemode 3.Use another hotkey to open a new tab that's not middle mouse button.

Then don't even bother replying. As I've done the first two and it made no difference and 3rd option is a solution at all.

This is frustrating and I'm slightly upset that after reading 20+ Pages of the same problem dating back from 2011 that there are no answers.

I am on a fresh install Windows XP (Yes I know old school) with firefox version 27.0.1.

Can't view PDF file, automatically downloads instead

I've been using the built-in pdf viewer for ages w/out issue. Today for the first time I found I could no longer view the pdf notes for my online Korean classes. Instead a save/download dialogue popped up.

Initially this problem included ALL pdf's that I tried to open in FF. It's been about 6 hours at this point - which is crazy - and I've gone through an extensive amount of troubleshooting methods (not necessarily in this order, aside from the last two):


  • Installed Schubert PDF Browser Plugin.
  • Disabled the built-in PDF viewer via preferences>applications, and switched to another viewer: schubert ... still got the save box.
  • Installed the Adobe PDF plug-in ... could not use (I'm using a Mac os x 10.7+ the adobe plug-in is buggy and not a viable option for me)
  • Deleted the mimetypes.rdf file ... no change.
  • Launched FF in safemode ... no change.
  • Enabled the built in viewer again via preferences>applications>portable document format (pdf)>preview in firefox.
  • Checked that 'pdfjs.disabled' was toggled to 'false' in about:config ... It was.
  • In about:config I reset 'plugin.disable_full_page_plugin_for_types' to default, then modified the value to: 'video/mp4,application/pdf'
  • Deleted the mimetypes.rdf file.
  • Re-initialized the plugins database.

The problem continued until I re-initialized my plug-in database and tried deleting the mimetypes.rdf file again and doing another restart.

Now it seems most pdf's are opening fine with the built-in viewer and schubert. However the site which I initially ran into the problem with: http://www.koreanclass101.com will not open pdf's and still opens the save dialogue automatically whenever I click open the pdf links. It also does the same when I enter the pdf directly into the address bar.

I have to pay a subscription so I'm not sure you can access this link without being a student but here it is just in case: www.koreanclass101.com/pdfs/BB_L5_051611_kclass101.pdf

(note this same page also links to another pdf which is not hosted on koreanclass101, and that pdf is now opening fine for me.)

I've tried clearing cache and all cookies for koreanclass101, but even after doing that the problem persists. I'm wondering if the fact that there is Korean text on the PDF matters at all?? Though I'm not sure why it would.

I really need a fix for this! The lessons rely on the ability to switch back and forth from audio to pdf IN my browser. When I open the pdf's with preview and run the interactive lessons in FF at the same time, FF slows to a crawl and starts to hang every time I switch back and forth btwn programs.

So, my most used action within Firefox was utilizing the middle mouse button in order to open a new tab on a link. Now suddenly after a format on my PC, the middle mouse button refuses to be acknowledged at all by Firefox; can't even hold it down to auto scroll or anything. I want to confirm that the button works on other programs and games with no issues. Using using ctrl/shift+click is not optimal but what I'm doing so far. I'm using the latest version, here's a list of the things I've already tried:

- Checking out all the related about:config's with "middle" as searching field.

- Made a new profile and reset Firefox numerous times

- Disabled/removed addons/extensions

- Wiped and installed Firefox completely - Tried with no addons

- Checked options

So far no luck at all, even tried some other browsers such as aurora & chrome with the same issue essentially.

When i try to sign in my Gmail account, on the "username" tab all the other gmail accounts are shown on the list too. I wanted to delete them all and doesn't want them to bring up the account even before someone types in. In other words I wanted to delete or clear the username's that pop's up on the username Tab.

http://www.southernpersuasion.com I have maintained this site for years. Recently, rather than post pictures on a photo storage provider and post them to facebook, I have posted them to facebook and then linked to them from this site (select the Pictures link). When I click on a link, I get a blank page in the frame. When I right click on the link and select Open New Tab, or Open New Window it comes up. I don't think I've messed up the html... in fact, I think I just changed the links from previous entries that were actually linked to PhotoBucket or the like. What is wrong, and how can I fix it? Thanx.

An ad "popup" has injected itself into Foxfire. Bottom left corner of browser window is populated with an ad window. It floats the screen. With Google it seems to work but under Bing it stalls and scripts crash. Often the crashing browser. It's not an addon or extension but the net does have info on how to remove a similar addon. Perhaps their first version of this more malicious item. McAfee and ClamXAV don't see it. The only way to actually even identify it's source is to look at the Page Info, Media and look at the image locations. This article seems to describe the identical problem I've experience but no posted solution. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18540776/shopping-guide-onlines-com-superfish-com-injected-script-into-firefox

After upgrading to the new version, 27.0.1, my right-click function to Open link in New Tab stopped working. I cannot open in new window either. When I click the link that I would like to open in new tab or window, the right click window appears, I click on the desired function, and the right click window closes and nothing happens.

I have also noticed that there are many additional functions that now appear on the right-click window, eg.

Play, Pause, Mute, Unmute, etc. Reload image, View Image, View Video, etc. This Frame, View Selection Source, etc.

They could have been there but I do not remember these functions available before. They may have been BUT it may just be the case of not really noticing them because everything worked and now that I can't open new tabs/windows, I now notice them. Not sure if this is related to the issue or not. I have the following extensions running:

ColorZilla 2.6.4.1 Dictionary.com 2.0.0 Firebug 1.8.4 InstantFox 2.8.7

I did disable them to see if they may have been causing the issue but the problem still exists.

Hopefully someone can figure this out because I may need to switch browsers until this gets resolved. Unfortunately not too efficient!

Thanks!

I have Firefox. And sometimes when I'm trying to watch a video, the video lags immensely! So I went to task manager to see how much memory its using. And it's using a whopping 480,000k!!! I have a basic theme and very basic addons. Nothing fancy. Almost as if it were a clean install. How do I make it so it doesn't use up all my memory? I have 8 gb ram but somehow it still gets the best of it.

Trying to download and install Adobe Flash. Adobe says the current version is 12.0.0.43. When downloading it from Adobe http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/, the version says 12x32_mssd_aaa_aih.exe. Don't understand that. After saving it and trying to install it, it will say that (only a single instance of this application can run). Clicking the OK button didn't help by eliminating one . I have done an Adobe Flash uninstall, tried re-booting, no Firefox applications are running and use the download folder to install. Same thing happens. I have had this problem before with the flash updates, and by making sure Firefox was not on, and installing from the download folder after doing a adobe uninstall seemed to work. Not now. Tried udating Firefox 26 to 27. I also have Chrome as another browser. But that was never a problem before. Sure would like some help. Thanks.
