Youtube always plays. Video plays in Chrome. I just got a message that my browser doesn't support HTML5. I have the Open H264 codec. On many websites, I will click the Play Arrow, and the video viewing area will simply go white. I'd say about half the websites that I go to will not play video on my XP computer. I have an nVidia video card that is two or three years old. I know I need a more updated OS and will probably shift to a Linux flavor when I get a new HD to put it on, but that takes money that I do not have.
I do have PeerBlock and Private Firewall. The latter is quite old and has not been updated recently, but it does seem to work. PeerBlock is checked daily for updates and for updated lists. I am somewhat neurotic about privacy, so I have many privacy Firefox add-ons.
I really hate Google and its lack of privacy, so much prefer to use Firefox for my browsing. I do have the Epic browser which is Chrome based, but Chrome has quit updating for XP, so I'd rather stay away from Chrome in all its forms.

I have a Windows XP, which is probably don't support new versions of Firefox. I turned auto-update off in Firefox settings, but it still trying to install update every time I open Firefox, loads it for several seconds and than shows an error. What else do I need to turn off to stop this?

There are a few users of this computer. There are a few different users of the facebook account. I am using Mozilla Firefox as the browser. Each user has their own name and password. When a user is done using their fb, they right click in upper right box of fb and scroll to "log out" and click on it to "log out". It starts thinking and doesn't log out the user but just sits there moving or thinking. In order to close out window you have to X out the entire page and totally restart the computer. Sometimes that doesn't work and you need to shut off whole pc and sometimes that doesn't work. I am on a Microsoft Windows XP/ Home Edition/ Version 2002 /Service Pack 3
Question 2: When you try to write a comment on facebook, you get an error message with a yellow triangle with a red exclamation point in it and it says : Unable to post message. [Try Again] If you keep trying, it eventually posts 50,000 times in your feed when I check my feed on my IPhone.
Same computer. Thank you

Tried Classic Theme Restorer, but it does not bring the good old efficiency of FF21 back.
Here is what is desired:
At the top of the browser: three bars
bar#1 at top: browser menu (file, edit, ..., help); addon icons; url/website input; search box.
bar#2 in mid: bookmark folders/icons
bar#3 under #2: tabs
Bottom of browser: addon bar (incl status)
Can anyone make this work for the new FFs?
(The new FFs feel like "quick-20/80-Google/M$SFT" "update-rape" "philosophy"...options are one thing, forcing them is another. The idea of quick iterations was not guinea-pigging the user, but to learn quickly, for a better result, which then become options, not dogma. Admittedly, easier said than done. Still love FF, but please get back to real good, not wacko juggernaut, for total love!)

I'm using Firefox 49.0 on Windows XP Pro. I've installed the K-Lite Codec Pack 12.3.5 Basic, (http://www.free-codecs.com/K_Lite_Codec_Pack_download.htm), and now my Windows Media Player will play mp4 files. So will Chrome. But, on Firefox I get "Video format or MIME type is not supported."
I read the Mozilla article, "Play Windows Media files in Firefox with the Windows Media plugin", (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/play-windows-media-files-in-firefox), and installed the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin from Interoperability Bridges and Labs Center, (http://www.interoperabilitybridges.com/windows-media-player-firefox-plugin-download). Now, the mp4 test at the end of that Mozilla article runs. But, I still get the "Video format or MIME type is not supported" on real websites, (http://www.cloudtownsend.com/video-advice/channel/Marriage/cloudT1046/).
My Explorer Files Type for MP4 is set to "Windows Media Player"; is there a "Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin" somewhere in the Program Files folder that I need to set it to?
How can I stop firefox from opening the hidden bookmarks toolbar when adding a new bookmark to the bookmarks toolbar?

After updating to Firefox 49, every time I add a new bookmark to the bookmarks toolbar, the hidden toolbar reappears. I usually have it hidden as I am using a small monitor with 1366x768 resolution to maximize the reading area of webpages without going full screen. This is more of an annoyance than anything as I would like to be able to uncheck the bookmarks toolbar & it stay hidden until I choose to show it. Does anyone have any ideas as to where I need to go to change this?

After hours and hours of surfing and worry, I never found an actual full explanation as to what is involved in using the Unbranded Firefox (to allow unsigned plugins - with warning, to continue to function), which is actually "Nightly" branded. So, I finally got it going, and am providing this information... Enjoy!
Ok, we finally have some info that I had to pick around at huge time waste and get working for me, looks like... Here is what I have found/done. Let me know if any is wrong...
If you want a Firefox that honors the about:config setting xpinstall.signatures.required with false, and allows unsigned plugins, then go to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Add-ons/Extension_Signing#Unbranded_Builds and install from the Latest Release Builds section to get the UNBRANDED (Nightly branding). I used the Windows 32-bit installer link. Note the name in that link (it has the release nubers in it), and download/save from the link, so you can tell next time when you try it again, and if it says duplicate, you know the link is not updated yet, and you will have saved your previous download for future backout, etc. I do see that the page/link was updated later in the day on 09/20/16 when 49 came out, so it looks to be being updated. :-)
I did this the day before 49 came out, and got 48.0.2, just as I wanted. I Installed over 47.0.1 (or .2, I forget, but whatever). All of my settings and config info was retained, as far as I can tell, I did have a cloud.7 norton insight quarantine a dll file that stopped nightly from starting - after I later rebooted - and I restored it. Nightly is installed in a different program folder, so I was able to use 47.0.1 when 48.0.2 would not start, to google the problem, etc. Norton might not like that location, and name nightly for a browser, is all I could figure out, so I restoted/excluded that dll file.
When I then clicked on the download and installed, it installed as Mozilla Developer Preview, but the browser is named Nightly, by the way.
Everything looked good, except Nightly is a dark blue ball, and desktop icons that had firefox or ie as browser shortcut, all turned dary, but hey - ok!
Today, I got a notice that Firefox 49 is available, so Nightly does let us know when an update is available, and it also showed up in Help/About, but I didn't fall for it. The page I mentioned above was not updated yet, but now it is.
So looks like we have notification (be sure to turn off auto update, but notify works - my options carried over), but need to wait until the page/link is updated (and maybe a few days), and download/save from there.
In fact, the download is over 40 meg so it is the full install (? I guess), so doing the updates this way looks to keep a trail and fallback that I didn't previously have, so this could be an improvement - wow!
I reset to defaults. Now the top line (file, edit view, etc) is blue and hard to read. How do I get it back to black on cream?
