I suddenly began having problems with Facebook, and then with Huffington Post. On HP, the dropdown menu for notifications won't load. On Facebook, things are far worse. Chat won't load, and I can't load private messages. In addition, the page won't refresh. When things get really bad, I can't even post. This all began rather suddenly as I was running Firefox version 12.x, but the problems continue in 13.x (for Windows 7, 64 bit)..

This started happening for no reason that I can find. Every few minutes a pop-up window appears that says: Browser startup change

    An unknown change was detected on your browser's search settings

(button) Keep my current settings (button) I am aware of the change and approve it

                                                 (button)YES

None of the buttons do anything. The close button doesn't work. The window sits on top.

I've been plagued with unwanted programs trying to change my browser setting and adding toolbars I don't want.. I've been able to delete / disable these manually.

The window doesn't show up with all extensions turned off. I can only turn it off by selecting it on the task bar and closing it there. I've been turning extensions on or off but it only goes away with all extensions off.

I've done some research. I know about (about:config) and (about:cache). Maybe the weirdest thing is that (about:cache) shows nothing about where the temporary files cache is located. List Cache Entries shows all of the temporary files, but still no clue about where those files are located? [since "List Cache Entries" is under "Memory cache device", that's not helpful.]

my cache settings

I'm trying to move the temporary files cache to drive F. Finding their current location might help.

Please advise. Thanks.

I believe I started getting this problem when I updated flash player but when I tried reinstalling this did not solve the problem. This problem seems to be only happening with mozilla and other browsers like chrome has not have this error. Clearing cookies and cache does not work since I have put never remember history as my option for mozilla. So right now I have no idea what else to try if anyone knows how to solve this, it would be greatly appreciated. TIA

I click on the rotating balls of download helper and it looks as though the download is taking only a couple seconds. Then, when I click on it to play it it doesn't work and says, The document “Barney_ I Hear Music Everywhere.mp4” could not be opened. The movie's file format isn't recognized. To see if additional software is available that will enable QuickTime Player to open the movie, click Tell Me More.

I have a 2011 Apple Macbook Pro 13".

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

As someone who deals with video media on the web quite often, this handicap inherent in Firefox is a fairly big and ridiculously obvious problem. When, if ever, will it be resolved? If Firefox wasn't such a popularly used browser, this issue wouldn't be as much of a concern, but people are using Firefox quite a bit on-line. It seems very strange to me that this otherwise excellent browser from Mozilla can't play back a simple MP4 file in HTML 5.

"Firefox doesn't support MP4 and 3GP due to their patent-encumbered nature."

Is there a way of resolving that at any point? If not, is there a reliable format that I should switch to instead of MP4, like Flash? I'm aware that there are plugins available to make Firefox "see" MP4 files, but asking customers to download and install a plugin is not really a professional solution. Please advise! Thank you.

The website works fine when I use microsoft internet explorer.

This has started happening since the last Firefox upgrade (to 14.0.1). It affects two machines - one running Windows 7, the other XP. The symptoms are identical.

Firefox is the default browser on both machines. I'm using only a default profile on each machine. I've checked that there are no stray "no-remote" switches in the command line or environment variables and I've tried deleting "parent.lock". The fact that it has happened to two separate installations, as a result of the upgrade, and the fact that all other functions of Firefox work as expected, makes me doubt that it's a profile corruption. I have also tried opening Firefox in Safe Mode but the behaviour is the same.

Here's what happened/happens:

Previously, if I had opened Firefox in the normal way from the start menu and then clicked on a link in an email in Thunderbird, the link would open in a new tab in the running copy of Firefox. I could do this with multiple links, each opening a new tab.

Now, if I do this I get the "Firefox is already running" error box.

If I close Firefox the click on a link in an email in Thunderbird, it will start Firefox as expected, and open the link. But if I then click on a second link, I get the error message.

If I click on URLs in other applications (for instance Pidgin instant messenger), the links open in new tabs in the running Firefox in the usual way, so the problem seems to be specific to links opened in Thunderbird.

As an experiment, I rolled my FF installation back to 13.0.1 on the XP machines. Everything then worked as before, and as expected, so this is clearly to do with the upgrade.

Flash Player loads the video and runs without crashing, but there is no sound. Reloading the page makes no difference. I cannot find any Flash Player "setting" that would turn the sound on/off. Firefox is oblivious to the situation.

Firefox continually crashes (approx. 6-8 times a day or more) due to Adobe Flash player crashing.

I'm running Firefox 13.0.1 and Adobe Flash 11.3.300.262

I noticed that since the second-to-last update of Flash Firefox has been crashing a lot. Before that Firefox crashed 'only' once a day or so.

Over the past few months I've read just about every thread related to Flash & Firefox and I'm not about to spend hours troubleshooting stuff, trying to disable hardware acceleration, etc, etc. I've done that before when the Flash-crash issue started a couple of months ago. (Also, Firefox is sometimes sending you automated crash reports, so you should have that data.) I would expect Firefox to simply "work" reasonably well, and as of the past couple of months or so, it hasn't.

W.T.F, Mozilla? I've used your browsers (Netscape) since the early 90s and have been quite happy - until recently, that is. As of now I'm having to go back to using Internet Explorer.

I sincerely hope Mozilla can finally resolve this issue as I still believe Firefox could be a great browser if it didn't "fight" with Flash all the time.

Specifically, the problem is this. When using a Flash player (audio or video) on any web page, while doing activity in another tab or window on the same browser, the sound or video stutters and chops up. Like, just mousing over links in a webpage will cause the sound to jump and stutter in time with the mouse actions. Happens with embedded audio players and video players alike. Really annoying. I reverted to an older Flash version a couple weeks ago and that fixed the issue.

I also posted about this in the Adobe Flash forum, since the problem arose when updating to the latest Flash Player version. I suppose the problem is more on the Flash end than in Firefox... though the new Flash update works well in Chrome and Safari and IE.

Hello:

I use Firefox 13.0.1 on a Mac OS X, and I often go to www.wenxuecity.com for news. But, in the past couple of days, when I type in that address in the URL window, only a white blank page shows up. Nothing else! If I use Google to find direct links to a few news items at that website and click the links, I also get white blank pages. No error message or anything else.

Could you tell what is going on here?

Many thanks!

I am trying to access the My Training tab on Army Knowledge Online (AKO). In the past I've used a PC and internet explorer with no issues. i just bought a Mac and was told Firefox was the best browser to access the military sites. Below is the copy and paste of what I see :

This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to atiam.train.army.mil, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What Should I Do?
If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

atiam.train.army.mil uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided.
