How can I fix this "Adobe two-version" problem, so only the latest version stays enabled, the old version stays DISABLED, and/or uninstall the old version?

I went to my add-ons tab, and I DO, in fact, have two versions of shockwave flash, an 11.9...version, and a 13.9..., which, if I'm not mistaken, is the latest version. Th… (read more)

I went to my add-ons tab, and I DO, in fact, have two versions of shockwave flash, an 11.9...version, and a 13.9..., which, if I'm not mistaken, is the latest version. There is a "ask to activate, always activate, never activate" button for EVERY add-on. I clicked never activate on the older version, and closed the tab. I then tried to play a video off of the Web. It would not play, I tried another site with the same result, so I went back to my add-on tab, and the button for the older version had changed back to "always activate" by itself. It continues to repeat this, and WILL NOT stay on "never activate". Every few times I return to the add-ons page, THE NEW VERSION IS DISABLED, AS WELL AS THE OLD ONE. I've tried to uninstall the old version, but when I go through control panel, and bring up the folder contents, the old version isn't even there! I've done start, find, and typed in "Adobe", and the old version is NOT FOUND! Both versions keep changing back and forth on the activate button, and they both will disable on their own, no matter how many times I fix it! smh!!

An https site I have been using for years suddenly is no longer accessible "because the authenticity of the received data could no longer be verified."

It works on Furefox on Windows7 Pro and on Internet Explorer but not on Windows 7 Home Edition, and not on my Android phone. Any ideas how to work around thus?

Since the first Win10 update about a week ago (there have been two in quick succession), pages are sometimes missing individual portions of text or in the case of the Mozilla Help home page and others, almost all of the text.

Links appear to be there but are not visible (the cursor turns to an active cursor when passed over some parts of a page).

Win10 is now at 1903 for Win 64 Firefox is now at 68.0 for 64-bit

I had to use my phone to post this because I cannot post in the Community Support portion of Help.

I use firetox to browse youtube, FB, and some blog. But, when I use for a while time, I felt my PC slow down, and check task manager, it shows that Superfetch is using my disk to release some memory for Firefox, and my Firefix use 17% of CPU and about 5G memory in one process(there are more than one process), it almost use 99% memory I have, and suddenly the usage goes down to hundreds of megabyte.

I have tried disable addons, refresh Firefox.

Firefox is up to date P.S. It is hard to open about:memory because I will get stuck when it happened.

Up until Firefox 69.0.3 outlook.live.com "Hotmail" worked fine. Firefox updated to 70 and all I see on the page is the Outlook blue logo.

This is what I have done without any help:

- Ran Firefox in safe mode - Deleted all cookies from Outlook and Microsoft - Deleted all certificates from Outlook and Microsoft

When everything was deleted I was able to log in to Outlook, but that's about it. I just end up back at the blue logo.

The only thing that breefly worked was installing Firefox 69.0.3, but Firefox crashed my computer and once I got it back up I had to use Chrome to install Firefox 70 and I ended up back at square one.

I will not do a refresh start on Firefox since I have spent years customizing Firefox.

All other sites seem to work as they should except for Outlook.live.com

i had a low resolution lenovo laptop. Thinkpad T540p Intel Core i5 4200M | 8GB | 240GB SSD | 15,6 inch. on which kubuntu installed like a charm and fast and everything worked perfect. yet the resolution was to low for me so now I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T540p Intel Core i7 4810MQ | 16GB | 512GB SSD | 15,6 inch 2560 x 1620. kubuntu installing took ages on this one. but everything went well and works fast. even Firefox, it's faaast! . but the videos on every site are choppy and lagging but not on the chromium browser. videos perfect! everywhere. but there everything else is slow. I tried everything I could find to change Firefox.. restart, reinstall, refresh, about:config, with or without addons, drivers. it's driving my nuts.. it looks like Firefox can't load the videos properly as if it doesn't have enough strength.. weird.. I had the same problem on my little mini samsung laptop. but this laptop should run it all without problems right? . why did the low resolution one run perfect? can anyone help me please..

All past software upgrades with other apps involve the actual installation of the needed fix as part of the download - to correct the existing code. But Firefox bug fixes do not appear to be installed, merely being saved to a download file, and nothing more. It makes me suspicious so have stopped responding to any Firefox notice of so-called needed upgrades/bug fixes in view of all the phishing, hacking, and identity theft where the crooks accurately mimic bona fide websites, trying get me to save their malware on my computer. Once saved, it does its job and I'm screwed. Yes, my Firefox is now running crappy with a lot of crashes. But I won't save anymore proposed Firefox "fixes" unless I know it actually comes from Firefox. Firefox needs to add an authentication routine to its bug fix notifications so I can be assured it is the real thing and not a hack. Otherwise, I need to find another browser.

I have URL directing MS Word to a file on WebDAV server (ms-word:ofe|u|https://server/file.docx). Word is opening file if address is open from shortcut on desktop or url in IE but is not able to open file if url is invoked from Firefox. Word is launched but shows error . Is process launched by URI scheme somehow dependent on application from which it is executed?

System: Windows 10 32-bit laptop

Problem: non-responsive UI on one laptop only. This includes inability to configure local options. nothing works. Menus drop down, but no matter what is selected, the selection does not highlight, menu hides normally but no action is taken by the browser

If I manually type in the url it sits there. no spinning cursor, nothing.

Browser does NOT crash... It simply sits there doing nothing. All other browsers work fine.

What I have done Restart the laptop Double check Firewall permissions Ran a scan before and after installation (0 threats found) Logged in as administrator as well as user account Ran performance monitor nothing alarming noted Uninstall and Reinstall. (Problem still exists)

Windows 10. Last Firefox update made it so that if you minimized the program it wouldn't respond. I turned off hardware acceleration and that made it worse... Now when you open it, or immediately minimizes and is unresponsive. I can't undo the change I made, let alone fix the original problem. I have uninstalled and reinstalled, but that did nothing.
