MS Silverlight is apparently required to stream Netflix. Streaming has stopped working for me every since Firefox upgraded to 10. MS says Silverlight will only work with a 32 bit browser.

Cannot launch FF versions 43+ because "mozglue.dll is missing" - when it's not

I have been happy with FF v43 until I decided to update to v50. It installed but would not launch, saying "mozglue.dll" was missing. I found on Google that some other users had the same problem, with some advice that AVG might be the problem. I found the mozglue.dll was in fact in Program Files - and repeated uninstalls and reinstalls of FF v50 with AVG also uninstalled made no difference. I (mistakenly) found that reusing my original install file of v43 then produced the same result - until I discovered that FF was updating my v43 to v47 within seconds of launching. I finally beat FF automatic updating to get to the Option "do not update," so I have a working, albeit old version of Firefox. Any advice would be welcome - while I fiddle with various workarounds of annoying warnings about my FF being out of date and its knock-on affect on add-ons etc. PS: I am very happily (and stubbornly) Windows XP Professional 64-bit sp2, but I suggest it's not my operating system at fault because other sufferers use a variety of OS. Thanks, Kevin in the UK

An older version of Adobe Flash (ver 21.0.0.242) is causing havoc with the latest version of FireFox (ver 47.0.1). I have gone to the Adobe web site and downloaded the installer file for both Adobe Flash and Adobe Reader (also outdated). Before installing these files, I right click on the file and select Properties>Unblock to install them. I also suspend my Anti-virus software to give me enough time to install the files. However, when I attempt to install the files, the Adobe installer gives me the error of "Connection Error" and fails to install the plugins. In the past, the workaround to this problem was going to Adobe's web page " http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html" and downloading a different installation file of the same Adobe Flash version. However, Adobe has discontinued using this page to download a different installer and instead, redirects you to their download page to download the same version that doesn't work. Workaround searches on the web all tend to send you back to the Adobe Flash installer page and right back into an endless loop.

There has to be a simpler way of doing this installation process. Adobe doesn't seem to accept email support questions for their free software and other than the workaround listed above, I have not yet found any solution via internet searches. I'm having this issue on both my Windows Server and all my computers, even though Adobe is detecting the proper OS and downloading the proper file.

How can I install these plugins so that FireFox has the latest versions?

Unable to migrate my profile from XP to Win 7

I want to migrate my Firefox profile (bookmarks, passwords, last sites visited, installed extensions/apps settings etc) from my Win XP 64 machine to my new Win 7 machine. Firefox is up to date (34.0. 5) on my XP 64 and Win 7 machines (I manually installed the active apps/extensions on Win 7). However Firefox was originally installed on my XP machine many years ago (at least 6) if that matters.

I've read the articles and tried everything I can think of but *nothing* works.

On my XP machine, I have only the default profile (from running Firefox with the -P option). This is located in C:\Documents And Settings\TexasTim65\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\1f2yd5bq.default

On my Win 7 machine I located the default profile in C:\Users\TexasTim65\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\bjy0sgis.default.

Try #1) I copied the 1f2yd5bq.default folder to Win 7. I run Firefox -P but the profile manager only sees the default profile. So it apparently can't detect new profiles randomly added to the Profiles folder. So that's a no-go.

Try #2) I open the bjy0sgis.default folder on Win 7. I delete everything in this folder. I then copy and paste in everything from 1f2yd5bq.default. I start Firefox and it's got nothing. No bookmarks, no last sites visited and I assume no password info or anything else. So this doesn't work for me either even though MANY people claim this is all they had to do.

Try #3) Using the profile manager on Win 7 I added a new profile called Main. I once again copied everything from 1f2yd5bq.default into the new profile. I set Main to be the default profile used (which I know works because it uses different extensions/plugins) but of course I have nothing from my copied profile.

So I'm stumped. Something is different about my setup that isn't allowing me to migrate over in a simple manner.

TIA,

Tim

P.S. Is there any thing I can do to get Firefox to create the EXACT same profile name under Win 7 as I had under XP? I would have thought the same username would generate the same default profile but apparently it doesn't.

Page Setup merely changes the topmost title line and freezes the screen except for the ability to close the page and return to the page from which Page Setup was invoked. Print Preview presents a monochrome grey page with the normal menu features that are normally responsive except for the Page Setup function. Print prints a blank page always. Noticed the problems with Firefox versions 10 and 11 and 12 beta, with XP Pro SP2 x64. Firefox version 11 does not have these problems with Windows 7 ult x64.

English needs no qualification and the clue is in the name - English. To suggest that it is not related specifically to the place of origin and is more generic would be as arrogant as to suggest the words "the states" by default relates solely or primarily to the USA - other countries have states apart from the USA.

Moreover there is no such language as "British".

It's very complimentary that the USA and others has adopted the English language (even if they cannot quite use if correctly) but to suggest that it is not related to England just demonstrates ignorance of both History and Geography (the United Kingdom is not the same as Britain or Great Britain).

Mozilla should do more research!

Mozilla just updated to version 29.0 beta. My browser was set up as following:

File, Edit, View etc are first; then there is home button and address bar; then bookmark toolbar; and finally tabs.

Now tabs are on top of address bar and I can't move it down. I tried going about:config with browser.tabs.on Top but it just does not work at all.

I use default skin for Firefox and I don't have any visual add ons.

This was most recent website visited and when it automatically redirected to the next video in line, it froze the mouse. I tried to launch the task manager at which point it locked out the keyboard.

(This PC is a Dell Precision T3500 w/ 6G of RAM running WinXP Pro x64, there is no rationale for this kind of incompetence.)

This happens WAY TOO OFTEN, like more than 50% of visits to video oriented sites like youtube etc

Hello,

Several days ago I shut down 64-bit FF 49.x (64-bit Windows 7) cleanly. I always select "restore tabs from the previous session" and this has worked well for a long time (I have opened 20-40 tabs in this time). But when I restarted the computer, the motherboard was dead (bad soldering, bad capacitors, whatever). I have the SSD that was used, full access to all files, and storage capacity to back everything up.

When I look in the profile folder on the Windows 7 SSD, I do not see any "sessionstore-backups" folder. I have tried to copy the profile folder to the correct location on a backup computer (64-bit XP running 32-bit FF 49.0) so I can recover the tabs/session, but it is not working.

(After I copy the old profile folder to the new XP64 machine and tell FF to use it, I start FF and see the "whats new" or "welcome" screen. After I shut FF down, the "sessionstore" files/folder now exist, but only reference the "welcome" tabs that I just saw.)

Can anyone help me get the tabs back on this 32-bit FF on my XP64 machine? Are tabs/sessions stored differently between 32-bit and 64-bit FF?

If 64-bit FF 49 doesn't use "sessionstore" stuff, where would the tabs from the last session be located? Will I have success when I reinstall 64-bit FF 49 on a new 64-bit Win7 machine?

Can anyone help me get these tabs back?

Any help is appreciated.

With Firefox version 25.0 the behaviour of the "search" field (bottom left) seems to have changed: when I have multiple tabs opened and search i.e. in tab 1 for "search string" the other tabs don´t feature the same search. Instead I need to CTRL + F and enter the search string for every tab.

This slows down searching massively - typically you may open a bunch of Google links and then scan for the same search string.

Is there any setting I may use to overcome this? Or are there plans to revert to the "old style" behaviour?

Thanks a lot! Andreas
