I checked my plug-in and was told the Google Earth Plugin was outdated. I clicked on the "Update" option but nothing happened. Usually when I clicked on that option, it'll open the developer's website so I can proceed the update. But this one just sat there and nothing happened. So how could I update this plug-in?

Thank you.

Mac OS 10.6.8, Firefox 16.0.1, PDF Viewer 0.6.39 installed. In Firefox>Preferences>Applications, PDFs are supposed to be handled by the PDF Browser 2.4.4 plug-in for Preview. However, when I try to view a PDF in Firefox, I get this:

"We are sorry, but Adobe Reader is unable to show documents in this browser configuration.

"Please use your browser to download this file and open it in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.

"To avoid this message in the future, many browsers provide a way to turn off certain add-ons, and some are able to show this document natively. Please contact your browser vendor for more details."

Why is Adobe Reader trying to open the PDF when Preview is the default? How do I disable Adobe Reader from doing anything in Firefox?

Bing has somehow sneaked onto the browser, probably when I installed new software. I am now missing some of the buttons I usually have replaced by the stupid bing toolbar. I hate bing, it is useless for me. Do I need to uninstall Firefox and reinstall it? I can't even find my bookmarks now. Other than Java and WOT, I don't usually have much in the way of plug-ins I use Win7 and Firefox 3 something

When I point Firefox 4.0.1 to the Plugin Check page

<http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/>

It flags the following plugin as outdated:

Shockwave for Director Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 11.5.9

However, I have the latest version of Shockwave installed (11.5.9.620) installed. Reinstalling the plugin does not change how the Mozilla Firefox Plugin Check page sees that plugin.

In addition to above I wish to inform you that Babylon addon is not available in my computer so that I may remove the same. I suspect some scam as I want Google as my default web browser & I want that whenever I start Firefox I should see startup page of Firefox and not Babylon search page, Babylon was erroneously downloaded by me which I removed but I am not able to remove Babylon search.

I'm only updating Shockwave Flash because the plugin page says to do it; otherwise I have no problems. The sequence of updating problems I am having is different from that described by others: 1) Checked for plugin updates: Shockwave Flash 11.1 r102 was highlighted as "Vulnerable" with red UPDATE NOW. 2) Clicked on Update Now and was prompted to download Adobe Flash Player 11.1.102.62 (not Shockwave Flash); Ran downloaded .exe file to install; Closed Firefox during install as requested and installation completed. 3) Opened Firefox; Checked plugins and now saw notice that Flash Player version was out-of-date and disabled. 4) As test, played a youtube video; Clicked on prompt at top of screen for "missing plugin"; Update self-executed, requested closing Firefox, and completed installation. 4) Opened Firefox; Checked plugins and once again saw that Shockwave Flash needed UPDATE NOW (as described in #1 above). Adobe Flash Player is not listed anywhere in the plugin list. So now I'm back to where I was before, wondering if I really am vulnerable due to this version of Shockwave Flash.

I need to be able to dynamically slow down (throttle) the speed with which my firefox downloads content. There are thousands of google links to an extension that seems to do exactly what I want: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5917/ However this is now a dead link. Why?

Is there a replacement?

Firefox: 16.0.1 Flash player: 11.4

- Running in safemode - Latest video drivers

When on a youtube video, I can move the mouse around the buttons and it will take about 3 seconds for the mouse to travel between the buttons. The same happens on the BBC News website.

All other flash videos seem to function correctly.

Watching youtube/BBC news in IE works fine. Currently, FF is unusable for these websites.

This also happens in safe mode.

When I upgraded to FireFox 13 my RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin was disabled as being unsafe and unstable. Now I can't download videos I watch with RealPlayer. When I Enable the Plugin, I can't watch the video (I get a blank video screen). So how do I Download and Record the videos I want like those on Planet Pulse by Rick Levine or other sites with recordable videos? I have downloaded and installed the latest version of RealPlayer and they say I will be able to download videos but I can't. Is this problem also related to this disabled Plugin?

Hi, I am having the worst time trying to remove Babylon homepage from Firefox, this is what I've already tried:

- Disable and Remove Babylon add on - Uninstall Babylon toolbar from Control Panel - Remove Babylon search engine from Manage Search Engines - Reset all lines that contain something about Babylon on about:config page - Change homepage from Tools > Options > General tab - Clean all registry keys, values and data with Babylon in it - Reset all registry keys to their default values - Uninstalling Mozilla Firefox - Deleting every file about Babylon - Reinstalling Mozilla Firefox - Resetting Firefox to factory defaults from about:support page - Resetting Firefox from Help > Restart with Add ons Disabled... - I have even tried to restore my system to a point before it started happening.

I have already read every forum in mozilla support, but nothing seems to work, I just can't get rid of it and it is absolutely annoying. There is nothing in babylon web page that has helped me.

Do you have any other ideas to remove completely this annoying issue?

I thought it was the new update to the flash player, but chrome and IE are working fine so it is a firefox thing.

I have erased the pluginreg.dat file and it did not solve the problem. Any other suggestions or is this your plug-ins checker again?
