Why can't I now download video using the Realplayer add-on. It worked fine until about a month ago when both this and Norton Password Manager stopped working following an update. I have managed to get Norton Password Manager back, but, for Realplayer I have to revert to Google.

Hi, In the options menu in the setting "choose how Firefox handles the files you download...." how can I add a content type? I have a content type extention for .cbz file. I'd like to add .cbr file to the list. I download many of these and am always prompted to "open or save file". It gets tiring. Is there a way I can add suggested files to save? thank you

Trying to play a flash game with WASD and other alpha character controls, but every time I hit a "letter" on the keyboard a Ctrl+F find bar opens across the bottom of the screen searching for the letter. When I mouse over the "X" in the bottom right corner to close this, it says "Close Find Bar." I cannot find a way to disable this automatically appearing find function. Every search shows just under 2000 results and they are all of the INDIVIDUAL words, "close" and "find" and "bar." Yet not a single one for the "close find bar" phrase. Help me disable this function please.

Cannot load extensions with background scripts

I am trying to make an extension for my personal use. I started writing a couple lines of code and it works in google chrome, but the same extension gives me an error on firefox.

The extension needs only a background script and needs to listen for tab creation events.

I went to about:debugging and clicked on "Load temporary add-on" and selected my extension's manifest file, it loads, but the console.log calls doesn't work. I noticed it gives me a warning Loading failed for the <script> with source “moz-extension://....../background.js”. with the if of the extension.

I looked a bit on the internet and disabled all addons and started firefox in safe mode, but the warning still persists. I tried to add a background page instead of a script and just calling console.log in that but that still didn't work.

In the end, I went to mozilla's example extensions webpage and installed a couple of them, but none of them worked, so the problem isn't in my code.

Is there any way i can fix this? I can't get a more descriptive error than laoding failed.

When highlighting text in the browser (I've experienced this in all sites including within text boxes where I'm inputting text), I will regularly get a popup to the side suggesting "quick web search" (referring to the highlighted text) and a set of dots to turn it off. This "feature" keeps turning itself back on. I want to permanently disable it because I have no reason to use it.

I don't think it's tied to the search engine (currently defaulted to Bing). I cannot find a setting anywhere in the options menu for permanently disabling it. With my only add-ons being ad blockers, I sincerely doubt they're the source of this pop up.

This feature is exceptionally annoying when it shows up as I'm almost never highlighting text for the purposes of doing a search (particularly when it shows up in a text box, such as one for submitting a comment). Even when I do turn it off from the given menu, it will turn itself back on at some point.

I just enabled FireFox sync, but for some reason I can't seem to get the Bitwarden Extension nor my DuckDuckGo Extension to show up in the top toolbar (top right) like it does on my other computer.

My 2 extensions are installed and running, so not sure why they don't show "up top"

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hey, I'm using Firefox as my PDF reader and I need to do a lot of searching throughout documents. When I use CTRL+F to search for and highlight text, the found text is highlighted in a very light green color that does not contrast well with the white background of the page. Is there a way to manually change this color to make it contrast better so it is more noticeable? Thanks!
