After clicking on "checkout", amazon.com asks me to login. After that, I get a blank screen. This happens with version 9 and 10 of Firefox. If I use version 8, then everything works as expected. Logging in to my amazon.com account from any other page also works as expected in any version of Firefox. But to checkout you always have to login again, and the problem still happens.

I have the latest flash plug-in installed from adobe's website.

Flash isn't working. It's not showing up on my list of installed plug-ins.

Checking all my plug-ins for updates, firefox tells me "For your safety, Firefox has disabled your outdated version of Flash. Please upgrade to the latest version."

Looking at my .mozilla/firefox/<snip>/pluginreg.datfile, there is an entry for it: [INVALID] /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so:$ 1320112563000:$

This plug-in works fine under 3.6.26.

I have tried removing that line from the file, uninstalled and reinstalling the rpm, but I get the exact same results every time

If I go to http://instructables.com and pull up any project, when I click on the images under the main image, usually you can see the other images for the project. Now it acts like they are a dead link... nothing happens. The page works correctly with IE or Chrome but not with Firefox 10. Something changed during the new version and it's not good.

I have two favorite games whose homepages I saved as shortcuts on my laptop. Before I switched to Firefox, I could start a game immediately upon entering the site. Now, whenever I pull the games up, a column of annoying ads shows up on the left side of the screen, blocking access to the start button for the free game. I have been unable to find a way to remove this column.

I clicked on a hyperlink to visit a web site that I had not visited for a couple of months. Firefox showed me the page as it was when I last visited it. I pressed F5 and the page updated to the latest version. I don't seem to have this problem with other websites; just this one. Does anybody understand the logic Firefox uses when determining whether to display a page from the cache or to get the latest page from the web server?

On upgrading to Firefox 10 the advanced google search option column which provides options to restrict google search results by date has disappeared in Firefox 10. Now I have to use the old approach of clicking advanced search, then date and then the time period I'm interested in. This doesn't happen in IE9 or Chrome.
