Hello everybody! I have a problem with one specific web page. In that page, I am unable to see the CAPTCHA image required to post comments. In the area where said image is supposed to show, I only see a writing that reads "CAPTCHA Image" (no, it's not a trick: the image is not "CAPTCHA Image", I already tried that! ;o)

If I click "Refresh Image", nothing happens.

Please note that this is the first time that I encounter such an issue: I used many other sites requiring CAPTCHA validation (even today) without any problem.

I saved the source code of the page and I'm trying to paste it here below for you to analyze, but for some reason the pasted text doesn't match the copied HTML code. While I try to understand how to paste the code, can you make any educate guess about the CAPTCHA not showing?...

I cannot find it in the control panel. When I start FF it defaults to this search page. I tried re-choosing my Home Page in Options but it keeps going back to flipora.

I believed that I did (along with a bunch of unnecessary garbage). I went back to the Plugin Check page and Microsoft Office 2010 was still there. Why?

Have been using Firefox as my browser for about 3 yrs. Has worked great with my Yahoo Mail. About 2 days ago I am unable to compose, forward, or reply to any of my E-mails. When I try to forward an E-mail I get: "Yahoo is unable to locate that information at this time". When I try to compose a new E-mail nothing can be typed into the format of the E-mail. When I go to IE for my browser, everything works properly. I am using Version 18 of Firefox & have not installed new software or changed any settings on my computer.

Every time i click [Disable] then restart FF, it's back, running again. I do not want Acrobat, as i would rather use Foxit Reader.

The only button in the Addons manager is [Disable] there does not seem to be a [Uninstall] or [Delete this plugin] option. Nor does adobe acrobat appear in Add/Remove Programs in Control panel.

Nor did i even install it in the first place. (Must have come packed with another app)

Either way, i want it gone. Please tell me where FF Stores it's addons, and which file to delete to get rid of this infuriating nuisance.

To use IRS Business Services Online (http://www.socialsecurity.gov/employer/bsohbnew.htm), 128-bit encryption is needed. They say:

"To determine whether your browser supports 128-bit encryption, select Help/About from your browser menu. Most browsers will display the phrase ?128-bit encryption? or "128-bit cipher strength.? If you are unsure whether your browser supports 128-bit encryption, contact the software company that developed the browser."

But I can't seem to find this information on the about page or in online articles about encryption. Would you please help?

I need to be sure I do not lose the items and groupings on my Bookmarks TOOLBAR

- NOT my bookmarks 

I know how to back up my bookmarks. HOW do I back up my Bookmarks TOOLBAR so I can recover just that - the Toolbar?

 I don't see any way or any individual file that contains this organized data so I can use it

to restore or migrate the toolbar

 Not the whole Profile. I have FEBE - but that doesn't seem to do what I am looking for.

When I click on a PDF, a new tab opens. It gives me the option to open the document directly or save it--this is what I have preferences set to do. However, when I try either of those options nothing happens. It only opens a new blank tab. My specifications are below. I've run all the relevant software updates.

System: OS X 10.8.2

Adobe Reader: 10.1.5

Firefox: 18.0.1

I've seen this problem on other posts and I've done some searching on the web. I've tried the solutions that have been provided and worked for other people, however I noted that they were running older versions of some of the software, etc. Interestingly, I CAN open PDFs that come to me or that I send through Gmail.

I have done the following based on the advice I've seen:

Cleared my downloads list

Tried disabling the Adobe NPAPI Plug-In

In my Firefox preferences: I have set PDF documents to be open by Adobe. I also tried it with Preview. Neither of them worked.

I appreciate any help you can offer.

When I tried to open firefox it automatically updated and supressed the sessionstore.js file. I saved the sessionstore.bak into another folder, closed mozilla, changed the extension bak to js in the "profiles" folder of firefox and opened it again but nothing happened. Though the sessionstore.bak file is 13Ko big and seems to contain all the links of my previous session.

How could I force Firefox to start a session using the information in the sessionstore.bak or .js file as it should?
