I am running a dictation program entitled Dragon Naturally Speaking version 13. I keep getting an error message when I use Mozilla saying that the add in is being blocked and asking whether I would like to allow the add in. I have repeatedly selected Allow and Remember only to have the error message pop up again.

Any information or assistance anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.

I have written in about this before; I originally set the "Location Bar" inside the Firefox settings NOT to suggest my bookmarks, but after a while it was starting to ignore that command and it would set itself back up after restarting Firefox to suggest bookmarks when typing in a web address. This problem was solved by setting up a new profile within Firefox. After that, this problem no longer existed.

Now as of today, the problem is back. I wish there was a way to contact developers of Firefox and let them know of this issue. If there are no other solutions out there except for setting up a new profile, fine but it's starting to get annoying that I have to go through this process everytime this problem happens.

I have already developed a C# win form application and a chrome extension with native messaging (another C# console app) to fetch user's active tab url. I have also developed an msi setup in WiX to write under the registry (HKLM/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/Google/Chrome/Extensions and HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Google\Chrome\NativeMessagingHosts) programmatically and tested the installation of the chrome extension by running the setup on different Windows 7 machines. I am publishing this extension on chrome web store and then I shall install the extension on several client computers.

I want to accomplish the same with Mozilla Firefox. I am newbie in this field and going through some Firefox developers guides (XPCOM, js-ctypes etc.) and getting little confused with multiple links.

It would be of great help if anyone can guide me towards the exact solution. Please note that, 1) I have to install the extension programmatically through the same msi package which already contains my own C# app and the chrome extension with native app and 2) the client machines will be Windows only but any version (XP (optional), 7, 8, Server anything).

When I install the 'External Application Buttons 2 0.13' in FF 33.1.1, the small rectangle that appears in the toolbar contains a button that I cannot delete. This button can be edited so is not the problem, but at the same time a new entry shows up at the bottom of the Tools menu 'Przycisk aplikacji', and that I cannot get rid of. If I disable the extension, the new entry in the Tools menu disappears, but it returns as soon as the extension is re-enabled. Is this a known bug and, if so, how does one get around it? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. (Windows XP-SP3 32bit)

Every time I open Firefox, a small box moves up from the middle of the screen to the download progress arrow in the upper right corner of the Firefox window. I check the download progress window and nothing is downloading, but every time I open the application, it does this. It didn't use to happen. I am running Firefox 31.1 on a Mac. I just updated to 31.1.1.

Every so often firefox will seem to freeze, however it hasn't actually crashed. Videos & music will continue to play, text boxes can still be interacted with, links, tool bars, the menu, etc can be interacted with,the cursor changes to its appropriate one for the needed job, and actually work(presumably), but the screen itself is frozen and doesn't change. According to the task manager it is responding and working properly, it closes normally and upon reopening it works properly and show no signs of having crashed. My assumption is that Flash is causing it(that seems to be how it happens most) however without being able to force it to happen(and 70% of my internet usage requiring it) I cant really test to make sure. Note: Firefox just update to the newest version when I was checking so I wouldn't know if that will fix it.

I set up my preferred icons history, print, home etc in the places I like them yet every time I turn off my PC the next day they are back to the standard set up & I have to do them all again, more than a little bit irritating as it has never been a problem before & only started happening when I upgraded to 33.1 Things like this seem to happen every time there is an upgrade, it is getting to the point where after years of using Firefox I am seriously considering looking around for a new default browser.

As if to illustrate my point when I just restarted Firefox after installing the troubleshooter add-on all my custom icon settings are gone AGAIN.

It' very annoying and can you please tell me how to stop it. It's only started happening recently. Thanks - I hope

This seems like it should be self-evident, but I am just not finding it.

The add-on page says that the add-on includes a new home page, so I tried resetting the home page in preferences. It takes me to the Firefox home page, but there doesn't appear to be an "access interest dashboard" button.

I've checked the various places where I can access history--no dice.

I've looked at the descriptions of the add-on in several places (both on Mozilla forums and on third-party sites)--still nothing to tell me where to find something that looks even vaguely like the data presented in the pictures of what the add-on does.

I tried to find a button that I could add to the customizable menu; nothing.

I tried opening a new tab and checking the options there. Nothing.

Firefox has trouble displaying whitespace in HTML maths formulas

I've had this problem with a few wikipedia articles, most recently: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/*-algebra. The line given by * {{math|size=120%|1=(x y)* = y* x*}} doesn't display properly, the spaces in x y and y* x are replaced by squares with the letters THSP in them. This problem occurs throughout the page. The same problem occurs regradless of the font I choose, but two fonts called "Clean" and "Fixed" do better than the others; they display all spaces properly apart from the space in λ x in the line given by :{{math|size=120%|1=(λ x + μy)* = λ′x* + μ′y*}}. I don't have the same problem in Chromium, which is using the same fonts.
