Error message: "Update could not be installed. Please make sure no other copies of Firefox running on your computer and restart Firefox again."

There are no other copies running. At least none that I know of - how do I check - and if not, what else would be the problem/how can I fix?

Firefox won't search if I type in a query into the address bar

Since the latest Firefox update (14.01 - I am not posting this from my own laptop so it will read as lower than 14.01) my Firefox browser will no longer search via Google (for example if I type in a place/company it doesn't bring up Google with search results).

I have looked for an tips/advice and found this question on the forum but now when I search it brings up the website that is the top result, and not Google itself.

Is this a glitch with the newest update? On this library computer which is 9.0.1 it doesn't have anything entered into the keyword.URL that is mentioned in the above link and it manages to search via Google just fine.

Is there anything else I need to do?

Hi there, I've just received my laptop back from HP after being in repair for three week. I have just tried visiting the website I visit the most, Twitter - with an 'untrusted connection' warning. Come on, this is TWITTER we are talking about, one of the most visited sites on the internet!

Anyway, i googled the problem and found this webpage http://kb.mit.edu/confluence/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=4275352 - i downloaded the link provided and by accident i didn't check the tick box like instructed to, and continued to proceed by accident. I now cannot find a way of getting on to twitter or deleting this certificate thing i installed.

I would also like to point out that just before i typed this, i got the same warning on this very website when signing up! However this time i just pressed I understand the risks.

I've also been into my settings and added a trusted website thing but that didn't work.

Hello,

In some pages, e.g. Twitter, and pages that load FB comments sections, I'm having problems with the certificates and the pages won't load. I don't get an option to add an exception either, therefore I cannot access pages.

I have pasted the error details below. Here is some important info for you:

Version: 9.0.1 <-- Upgrading is NOT an option, this is a corporate machine Connect via proxy: yes

I doubt very much that this is an issue with the connection, as IE and Chrome are NOT having this issue on the same connection.


Error I get:

This Connection is Untrusted



         You have asked Firefox to connect securely to twitter.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.
         Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.
       
       
       
         What Should I Do?
         
           If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is

trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

          Technical Details
         twitter.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is not trusted.

(Error code: sec_error_untrusted_issuer)


Can anyone shed some light? The usual troubleshooting I've come across hasn't helped me much.

Simple problem: 1. Enter a term for Google to search for (either using the installed Google toolbar or via their landing page). 2. Results are returned correctly. 3. However, returned links will not open up in the same search result tab, or within a new tab or new window. 4. Selecting the link in the search results tab does nothing. Firefox appears to make a momentary load attempt before remaining at the same location. 5. Launching the link in a new tab/window returns a long-string Google prefix-based (i.e. www.google...) address in the navigation window of a blank tab/window. 6. Web addresses returned from the search can be copied and pasted into new tabs/windows to load without issue. Normal Google search process using this query works from IE every time.

Test: "Energizer Bunny" Returned Link: www.energizer.com/energizer-bunny/pages/bunny-center.aspx Failed Address: http://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=energizer%20bunny&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CDYQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.energizer.com%2Fenergizer-bunny%2Fpages%2Fbunny-center.aspx&ei=ruYyT47cIYHjiALj69XGCg&usg=AFQjCNHg-eabuCQBx6Bv36V9F4pN4tQRYA&cad=rja

Be advised this is not the Google redirect problem that many users have encountered but something different.

I keep getting a message that "An important update is available for Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.400.43". I click on "Update Now" and I get taken to the Mozilla Plug-in check page. A brief message shows at the top of the page that tells me some plugins are out of date and then disappears. The plugin checks show all plugins are up to date. I have uninstalled/reinstalled Java more than once and run a registry cleaner, but once I install Java the same messages appear. I am on a Windows XP machine and I am running an older version of Firefox (9.0) because addons for some of my other software don't work with newer versions of firefox. Can I get rid of the message or do I have to live with it because I use an older version of firefox?
