This happened before.. i used app zapper to remove FF8, then reinstalled FF 7.01.. no issues with 7.01. Verified Addons with Addon checker (everything up to date) Used update channel to install FF8 ... Still Crashing when exiting Yahoo Mail and Yahoo Games. Hardware info... i7-920, 6GB Ram, 1TB HD, Nvidia Graphics. OSX-10.7.2 Lion Fully updated

BTW Appzapper removed everything including profile... ITS NOT PROFILE RELATED.

Still Happens in Safe Mode... Going Back to 7.01 after AppZapping 8.0 .

Must be Related to some change in LION because FF8 works fine on Snow 10.6.8. Perhaps Permissions need to be modified in the Script for FF8, Perhaps Plugin related. Not Sure, but 7.01 Works without Crashing.

After the upgrade when I download a file the download window appears (as set in the Preferences) but the file being downloaded does not get listed, the download window is ALWAYS empty, no matter how many items are downloaded - basically there is no history. When downloading something it appears in a flash in the downloads window then once it's downloaded the window is empty again.

I get this error message when I try to install Firefox 10.0 on Mac OS X 10.7:

"The operation can’t be completed because some items had to be skipped. For each item, choose File > Get Info, make sure “Locked” is deselected, and then check the Sharing & Permissions section. When you are sure the items are unlocked and not designated as Read Only or No Access, try again."

No item list is displayed for me to check. Where do I find this? The installation also corrupted my previously installed version of Firefox.

I upgraded to Lion (so, Mac OS X) and using Firefox 9, together with Quicktime plugin 7.7.1.

When I open http://apple.com/trailers and choose a trailer, you can watch a trailer inline or use a download link. Although the inline works properly, the download never starts, and the external quicktime player doesn't start either.

Using the web developer console, I checked the request: [11:43:21.674] GET http://trailers.apple.com/movies/fox/prometheus/prometheus-tlr1_h480p.mov

And the answer is: [HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily 131ms]

But nothing else changes. Page doesn't reload, nothing moves.

In the preferences, Applications tab, I have all video/quicktime being handled by "Use QuickTime Plug-in 7.7.1".

I tried to change to "Ask" or to use application "Quicktime", but nothing moves :(

Thanks for any information you can give.

Firefox repeatedly crashes, even in safe mode. I can not type anything, it immediately crashes upon opening. I have tried uninstalling twice with AppCleaner, have gone through several forums and troubleshooting steps, and nothing seems to work. I have listed a few of the Crash IDs below, I actually have many more crash reports aside from these, but I was not able to type them all in. Everything else on my mac works except this. I have been having to use Google Chrome browser, which works fine, but I prefer Firefox. Please help, thank you in advance.

Since Firefox 14 came out on OSX I've been really annoyed by the Lion full screen. I don't exactly hate it but the problem is that the toolbars (awesome bar, bookmark bar etc.) no longer auto hide when in full screen on OSX Lion. Please tell me there is a fix on the way or some quick easy fix for this. I want my screen filled up again. So annoying when I view images.

I'm sticking with 13.0.1 until someone can offer a fix.

Thank you.

Starting yesterday when using Flash Video Downloader in Firefox 15.0.1 running on a 2011 MacBook Pro running OS X 10.7.4 I started getting the following dialog box when I attempt to download any video from YouTube.

Youtube Cookie Trouble To continue download from youtube you have to clear youtube cookies. Do you want to clear Youtube cookies right now?

When I click the button for Flash Video Downloader in the menu bar I get this dialog box immediately and clearing cookies makes no difference, the problem persists and I can't begin a download. If I use the button at the lower left of the browser I can get Flash Video Downloader to put up the full window but all of the videos appear to be N/A, and don't show their size. If I click the Download button in that window nothing happens and in the Firefox download window the file is 0 kb in size.

This only happens on YouTube now and not other sites I frequent. It also behaves exactly the same on older Macs running older versions of Firefox and older versions of OS X. I have searched for the last day and can't find one single reference to this dialog box or this problem. Has anybody else seen this problem firsthand?

I thought my code was wrong so I changed it on 1 specific file so far here with the new doctype rules but it still does not work ex:

��<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <title>2007 Demo Reel</title> <body> <iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/8489164?portrait=0&autoplay=1" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe> </body> </html>

I think the problem is the popup window loads the 2 question mark symbols in diamonds but if you look at the actual html the symbols are not in it and if I ask firefox to load the html locally it works fine. My customers can not see my videos and I am very frustrated. The site loads fine in every other browser I can think of on Mac, PC, mobile device

I go to LinkedIn and type in a name in the search box, for instance "Peter" and hit enter. Normally, this will return with a list of people with the first name "Peter", listed according to degrees connectivity. Instead the web site never loads the next page. It appears that it keeps loading the page over and over again, but with no result. In the end I have to press back or use another browser (Safari) to load the page and use the search function.
