The plug-ins checker shows Flash to be out-of-date, but Adobe's plug-in checker shows that I am up-to-date. Also Firefox's about:plugins page shows that my Flash is the correct version. 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?

For whatever reason, youtube will no longer work in my firefox browser anymore. Every time I try to play a video I get a message saying "An error has occurred. Please try again later." I have tried running firefox in safe mode, but that didn't help. I believe it stopped working after I installed the newest version of Java. So I even tried uninstalling it, but that did not work either. I have the newest version of adobe flash and firefox, so I have no idea what is causing this problem.

It seems that Firefox frequently loses window focus when I open a new page. It may be a bookmark, a link opened into a new tab via CTRL+Left-Click, or whatever. The following scenario always results in the window losing focus (for me).

  1. Open Firefox.
  2. Open this link and bookmark it.
  3. Close and reopen Firefox.
  4. Open the page just bookmarked using the bookmark list and don't touch the window.

I read this page daily, so when I start Firefox and open the page, I have to click in it so as to scroll, etc..

Firefox 13, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

I wish this site had "Preview" for its posts. Geez Louise.

I can't play youtube videos or access games on facebook, and some websites I only get 1/2 the page. It seems like something is blocking my flash. It says my flash is up to date and also shockwave. I have included 2 screenshots. I have started in safe mode and nothing works. Works perfect in google chrome. The problem is only firefox. Any ideas??? http://i431.photobucket.com/albums/qq36/otter2208/youtube.jpg http://i431.photobucket.com/albums/qq36/otter2208/face-1.jpg I goto my plugins and see shockwave flash only. Also I have tried other sites with video and the video does not pull up at all.

On both youtube and hulu, when I try to play any video it sounds all choppy and underwater/echoy. Restarted computer twice, no change. I went to the firefox plugin page and some were out of date, they are now all updated and the problem persists. Cache has been cleared, still having the problem. Music in iTunes works fine, same streaming videos on IE works fine. So, it is a FF problem. Any ideas on how to fix it?

I tried the two methods I've heard so far to disable the new firefox 19 pdf viewr: -in about:config set pdfjs.disable to true -options>Applications>set pdf view application

The trouble: when I set the viewing application for pdf to Foxit, firefox automatically downloads the pdf to open it in the separate application. Up until firefox 19, the Foxit reader application would open in the browser. Since Foxit does not have a firefox add-on, how do I disable the firefox 19 pdf viewer and use Foxit Reader to open pdfs as a new tab in the browser?

Firefox just made me update to 13.0.1, and now I can't search on with google, yahoo, ixquick, or startpage. Whenever I do I get this:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to startpage.com.

SSL received a record with an incorrect Message Authentication Code.

(Error code: ssl_error_bad_mac_read)

I've tried reinstalling it, installing older versions, and troubleshooting pages, but nothing works. I can go to websites that I have favorited or ones that I have links too, but I can't just use search bars. Does anyone else have this problem, and know how to fix it?

FireFox v13.0.1 installed on Win 7/64 system.

Adobe Flash and Shockwave installed yesterday.

Whenever I try to view a Youtube video, I select it and the screen with the arrow appears. When I click on the start arrow, the screen goes black and a warning on the screen appears:

An error occurred. Please try again later.

On the same machine, YouTube videos play fine on IE v9 and Google Chrome v19.0.1084.56 m.

Suggestions, or is this goodbye to FireFox?

Thanks
