So I have Firefox on a main O/S Windows 8.1 & a second boot Ubuntu 12.04. I've set up my sync account on Windows 8.1 & when I set it up on Ubuntu with the recovery key it will import the bookmarks, add ons, preferences ect. The problem is if I add bookmarks in Windows Firefox & then boot Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Ubuntu, if I add a new bookmark on Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Windows. They both keep their own instance of my sync but won't share it & share the changes.

Am I supposed to select a setting at the Sync Options to tell it to keep both the browsers the same & to also let each other add bookmarks? If you know what I mean ;)

I can't work with any of my plugins because the plugin check says the status of all my plugins is "unknown," and offers no action except the "?research" option. I can't uninstall them, either.

I am trying to make google hangouts work with firefox, and I think I need to be able to remove or update old google voice/video plugins to do that. But I can't get at them.

We've been having multiple Firefox crashes a day for a long time now. Time to look for some answers. Sometimes Firefox crashes, and sometimes it freezes so I have to go into the "Start Task Manager" and manually end the Firefox process.

Vista is the operating system, and we have Norton Security Suite installed.

Memory usage might have something to do with it, as the computer often sounds as if it is working extra hard before it freezes or crashes. I also find that CPU usage is often around 50% when this occurs.

I have embedded a video using HTML5 using the mp4, webm, and ogg formats.

In Firefox the video poster displays as do the native controls. When the video is clicked on (either on the poster or the play button on the controls) the poster disappears to be replaced with the first frame of the video. However the video then fails to play.

If i right click over the video and select play it plays fine, similarly if i then click the pause button it pauses, the play button still does not work though.

The video plays in all other browsers that i have tested in without an issue.

The virus affects the restore program. when the user tries to restore an earlier version the virus deletes the stub and the html files. what is needed is a federal agency that can prosecute microsoft. as i said before the best defense is to have a dvd containing all the firefox executables so that we can reinstall without having to connect through internet explorer. I am willing to buy this dvd - i think this is better than making a donation. The laptops are now programmed to have a return to factory installed condition. the dvd would come in handy then. it does mean losing several hours of work but that is the price of an insecure internet.

I have the latest version of Firefox (26.0). I'm not sure if a Flash or Java update caused this issue.

Vine videos were playing fine in my browser. This was AFTER I changed the about:config settings for media.windows-media-foundation.enabled to "false" - They never seemed to load when this was set to "true"

But now, the problem is back. Vine videos will not play. I recently updated to Firefox 26.0 and this issue came back. Additionally, I did install a Java update. I have tried EVERYTHING to restore my browser to the way it was but nothing works. I have reinstalled Firefox. I have done clean installs of both Flash and Java. I have tried starting Firefox in safe mode, but the problem remains.

If I go to a Vine page (https://vine.co/v/heXdnb0m3dm) for example, all I see is a static image. I can't click on anything. It's just a static frozen image. On Twitter, the same Vine video appears as a black screen where it previously used to load just fine. Even on Tweetdeck, which uses Firefox as the default browser, the videos will no longer load. This is all when media.windows-media-foundation.enabled is set to "false"

If I change the settings so media.windows-media-foundation.enabled is set back to "true" then the video plays but I have no control over sound. There is, in fact, no sound. The video plays on a loop. No sound. In fact, I can not even control the sound icon. Clicking the icon does nothing. It doesn't change to signify that the sound is on or muted. It remains the same muted icon.

So, basically if I try to play Vines by forcing them into flash, I get nothing at all. I get a static image. No video. No sound. No function.

If I leave the defaults the same and play them via HTML5, the video plays, but there is no sound and no control.

Please help! I have tried everything at this point!

UPDATE: I temporarily set security.csp.enable to "false" and the pages load up perfectly. Is this safe, though?

when using an Adobe flash page a small window appears requiring a download (usually 10kb) to get past the grayed-out covering of the flash item. Ad blocker can stop download window, but then the flash page will not appear for use. Quote:

"Adobe Flash Player Settings Local Storage cdn.arenaconnect.arkadiumhosted.com is requesting permission to store information on your computer. Requested: up to 10 KB Currently Used: 0 kb (with) Allow & Deny buttons "

Of course, the "request" makes it impossible to get past the Deny to the flash page.

Solution: Saving All The Tabs And Reloading Them Anywhere (From Archived Thread)

Hi, My problem "was" that I was working on Firefox at my home and at my office. As computers are fast these days, I am in habit of opening large number of tabs in firefox… (læs mere)

Hi,

My problem "was" that I was working on Firefox at my home and at my office. As computers are fast these days, I am in habit of opening large number of tabs in firefox. And I always wanted to open the same tabs at my office which I was opening at my home and vice versa. I further wanted to clean the browsing history after leaving the computer at my work as well as home.

While searching through the forums, I reached to this thread:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/960096

And to my satisfaction, the exact answer was not there.

Anyways, doing a little more search, I found why I will never stop loving Firefox and its because of its wonderful "addons".

So here I re-write the problem,

I want to save the addresses of different tabs opened in my Firefox and save them to a file that can be re-opened by Firefox on the same computer or on a different computer with the option to clean the browser history after leaving the computer.

Solution: "Session Manager Addon" of firefox.

Steps to the solution:

1. Download and install a firefox addon called "session manager".

URL: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-manager/

2. After installing this addon, go to Firefox -> Sesion Manager -> Session Manager -> Session Manager Options. (or to Tools -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Session Manager Options)

Go to "Advanced" tab.

Now change the default location for saving the session. Say you name it to your desktop.

Now, you have "Session Manager" addon installed, the default location of saving the session file is known to you (say your desktop).

3. Now go to, "Firefox -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Save Session" and give your session a name under the option "Save the current session as". (or to "Tools -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Save Session")

4. Suppose you give your session a name called "New Session". In your default location of saving the session (say your desktop), you will get a file named "New Session.session"

5. Now this file is the key. It's a small file and you can simply email it to yourself or carry it to your work with you.

6. Just place this file at same location on the different computer and repeat Steps 1 and 2.

7. Now Session Manager is installed and configured on the other computer and the file has been copied to the desktop of this other computer.

8. Go to Firefox -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Load Session (or to Tools -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Load Session) and the saved session will be loaded to the different computer by Firefox.


Now, how this addon can help someone?

1. It is extremely useful for people like me who are addicted to opening many many tabs at once and want to resume working from the same set of tabs whether they are at home, office or some other place.

2. Suppose, you are surfing some personal sites that you do not want other people to know and you can't bookmark those sites. You are on a different computer, say at your office and want to clean the browsing history too.

The best option in such cases is to save the session completely and re-load it on a different computer.

I personally found "Session Manager" addon better than "copy urls expert".

The only improvement I would like to see is that Firefox itself should allow multiple tabs to saved to a file that can be opened by Firefox just like we open a saved HTML page.

And thanks to Michael Kraft for creating this wonderful addon... Really liked and I hope my post help others.

thanks
