I am creating a dual boot PC with Win XP and Win 7. I have Firefox on my XP side with lots of plugins. Is there a way to load all those plugins from my XP to my 7 without having to reload all of them? Are they all stored in a folder somewhere that I can just copy over?

Salutations!

I'm looking for a solution to install an add-on for all users. Specifically, we're using the Symantec PKI client (https://knowledge.verisign.com/support/mpki-support/index?page=content&id=SO27063&actp=search&viewlocale=en_US). The current version, as seen in the support page, has to be installed manually. the problem is, every time new user logs into the system with the latest version of the PKI client installed, this webpage will pop up, annoying users. As a workaround to this issue, I'm looking to install the add-on linked in on the support page and have it enabled for all users by default.

I followed this article's chosen solution, but it does not appear to have installed the add-on: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/966922

Any assistance would be appreciated! The version of firefox that I attempted the solution in was version 35.0.1, but most of our systems are running in the ESR channel, version 31.4.0.

Cheers,

Moose

P.S. I've added the troubleshooting information, but my workstation is fairly unique, so I'm not sure if it'll be very applicable to most of the systems in our environment.

When the downloadhelper icon animates, I click on it as usual if I want to capture. The button operates normally, displays the video name and I click quick download. Nothing downloads, the library says no downloads for this session. However there is an icon in my download folder, but nothing plays -- there is no download. Everything works fine, except there is no download. Version 36?

Up until a few days ago I was using download helper to download various files to my PC. Yesterday I noticed it wasn't working. The file I want to download shows up in the log, I click on it, a Windows Explorer window pops up with the file name. I click on save as usual, the pop up closes and then nothing happens. No files are downloading. I don't even get a 0 byte file.

Anybody else have this problem and if so, is there a solution?

Thank you, ~k

It works on most videos but there are several that won't download properly. Whenever I try it says "0 bytes" and the video won't play with Media Player, Realplayer, or any other program. Does anyone know how to fix this or another Firefox addon for me to try? I also tried downloading the videos with Realplayer's download too but that won't work either.

An extension I have had installed for some time, and which icon was on the toolbar, disappeared from the toolbar. The extension is still in the list and enabled in the add-ons page. I cannot locate the icon in any of the places I would expect to find it. Disable/re-enable and remove/reinstall have not solved this problem. What next?

When I try to download any file from the S3 server to my PC, the above exception error comes up. "[Exception... "Not enough arguments [nslWebBrowserPersis.saveURI]" nsresult: 0x80570001 (NS_ERROR_XPC_NOT_ENOUGH_ARGS)" location "JS frame......" (much more that is not copied here). Interestingly, if I try to download a bucket, it will create a folder on the PC but it hangs on the files inside. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox as well as the add-on S3 Firefox Add-on 0.7. Doesn't help.

Tab Groups(Panorama) Menu Add-on started behaving erratically since I upgraded to Firefox 37.0 Beta version.

Tab Groups Menu shows all the Groups that I had created. But as you can see from the screen shot all the Tabs that were in different Tab Groups are now displayed in a single group and I am unable to arrange them in groups like I used to, i e, before upgrade. My earlier FF version was 34.5 Beta, now it is Firefox 37.0 Beta. Such problems have become pretty routine with new version coming out every other day. Earlier I used Tabs Group Manager(TGM), which was very helpful, but that simple stopped working with newer versions. So I was forced to abandon it. Now the same thing is happening with Tab Groups Menu. How can use My Firefox if this continues?

I have used Down Them All for years to snag flash videos across the web and actually forgot about it for some time. I recently upgraded the machine and decided to download the add-on to see what's changed. It works great on several websites, but then at times will run a search on the same page it just downloaded from and say "No results were found." The only thing I notice is that I upgraded flash because certain sites still showed a "Missing Plug-in" box, which has since been resolved, but after I upgraded flash DTA only sees pictures and HTML type documents, no more videos on any site, like YouTube. Any idea's?

I have VDH also, and it see's flash and MPG movies wherever DTA just sits there. I prefer using DTA, it's cleaner in my opinion. What gives?
