Downloaded VLC Web Plugin Version 2.0.5.0 and rebooted and restarted Firefox. Firefox Plug Ins still shows old version 2.0.2.0. When I check Firefox for latest version is says 2.0.2.0 is the latest and I'm up to date.

When I open VLC as a standalone it comes up as version 2.0.5.0.

Why is Firefox not incorporating the correct version?

Over the weekend, Yahoo has somehow been made my default homepage. When I go to Preferences and change it to my desired homepage, it only works for the next launch - then it reverts back to Yahoo. So I uninstalled Firefox and downloaded a new copy. Same thing, so apparently it's a moderation you have made to your browser.

I do not like this. If you don't tell me how to permanently remove Yahoo as my default page, and allow me to PERMANENTLY decide for myself what my default homepage is, I will stop using Firefox altogether, even if it until now has been my favorite browser.

I am on an iMac running OS X 10.6.8

Firefox Menu Bar

I am new to Linux but have been using Firefox for Windows for almost ten years. I now want to use Firefox Desktop, Version 26 (I think) in Linux (Ubuntu).

I cannot get the Menu Bar (File, Edit, Help, etc.) to show. In Firefox support, in the section “Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars”, it states: “Most toolbars can be shown or hidden depending on your needs. To show or hide a toolbar, right-click on an empty section of the Tab Strip and check or uncheck it in the pop-up menu. Menu Bar: This toolbar at the top of the Firefox window contains the browser menus (File, Edit, Help, etc.). Hiding the Menu Bar will make the Firefox button appear which contains a simplified menu.”

When I right-click on an empty section of the Tab Strip, all I get is options for the Navigation Toolbar, the Bookmarks Toolbar, and the Add-on Bar; no Menu Bar option. Also, since my Menu Bar is “hidden,” I can't find the Firefox button which contains a simplified menu. What does the Firefox button look like?

When I go to support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox and try to download Firefox 26 I'm told that "Congrats! You’re using the latest version of Firefox."

Since I presume my Linux distribution's packaged version of Firefox can be updated only when an updated package is released, I checked for distro updates and there were none at all. Do I have to wait for a Linux update?

I certainly will appreciate any help.

Shockwave Flash was causing my browser 40.0.3 to start videos I did not want to play, I added an add-on to block Shockwave Flash; however, this became very cumbersome to enable and disable when i go to sites that required Flash like a greeting card site. I found another add-on called "Video without Flash", it told me to remove "shockwave Flash" I did, now I can not get any video on the greeting card site. Is the problem that I removed Shockwave Flash or something else, I have the latest Flash Player from Adobe.

I need some help.

Hi, My Firefox plug-in check is telling me that there is an update for Java, but when I visit the link it's still taking me to the old update (the Java 7 update 9). Also, according to the Java test page, Java 7u9 is still showing that it's the latest...it says I have the recommended version.

Is there an newer update somewhere?

Thanks.

Many versions ago I customized the background color if none was given to a brown to go with the skin I was using then.

Now I find displaying a simple text file is unreadable with unbolded black against the brown, but I cannot find in today's version where to set it back to white (or at least a pale color).

Any help appreciated.

Hi,

Where does Mozilla Firefox saves the files from add-ons? Don't know if it is from Windows update or from Firefox update, but my add-ons settings keeps on resetting and I lose a lot of data from them because of that. And if I know where Firefox saves those files, then I can make a backup for them.

I really don't like the look-and-feel of the new pdf.js viewer. On my machine (6 yr old HP running Windows XP with sp 3) it displays slower than Acrobat Reader did, and I was perfectly happy with Acrobat Reader plugin. Frankly I want to disable pdf.js, but haven't been able to figure a way to do it. It doesn't display anywhere I could find on Add-ons Manager. I don't want to be compelled to use a feature that seems to be a performance detriment, at least for me. Mozilla, please rethink this!

How to lock down Firefox in an Enterprise Environment?

I need to lock a bunch of preferences so they can not be changed by users on multiple Windows 7 computers running Firefox. I was able to get most of the settings I needed locked down in a test environment by using the Firefox-GPO-Addon and an .adm template I found online:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/gpo-for-firefox/

   The template is outdated and does not match many of the settings, but it was easy to add settings to the .adm template. I do not like this method since I have to install the addon (somehow) on all of the computers. Also, there are a couple of settings I need to configure (such as privacy.sanitize.promptOnSanitize", false) that are not currently in the 'about:config' by default and the GPO does not create them.
   So, I have been trying to figure out the other method of configuring Firefox settings in an enterprise environment, and have been working mostly with these articles:

http://stealthpuppy.com/prepare-mozilla-firefox-for-enterprise-deployment-and-virtualization/
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Locking_preferences

   I figured once I have the mozilla.cfg and local-settings.js configured, I can copy them to all of the computers with a script, instead of having to install the GPO AddOn. Here's what my local-settings.js looks like:

pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0);
pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");

And here's my mozilla.cfg file, with some of the settings I need configured:

//
pref("browser.startup.homepage", http://www.msn.com);
lockPref("browser.startup.homepage", http://www.msn.com);
pref("security.tls.version.max", 1);
lockPref("security.tls.version.max", 1);
pref("security.tls.version.min", 0);
lockPref("security.tls.version.min", 0);
pref("security.default_personal_cert", Ask Every Time);
lockPref("security.default_personal_cert", Ask Every Time);
pref("app.update.enable", false);
lockPref("app.update.enable", false);
pref("browser.search.update", false);
lockPref("browser.search.update", false);
pref("extensions.update.enabled", false);
lockPref("extensions.update.enabled", false);
pref("network.protocol-handler.external.shell", false);
lockPref("network.protocol-handler.external.shell", false);
pref("plugin.disable_full_page_plugin_for_types", PDF, FDF, XFDF, LSL, LSO, LSS, IQY, RQY, XLK, XLS, XLT, POT PPS, PPT, DOS, DOT;
lockPref("plugin.disable_full_page_plugin_for_types", PDF, FDF, XFDF, LSL, LSO, LSS, IQY, RQY, XLK, XLS, XLT, POT PPS, PPT, DOS, DOT);
   However, when I copy the mozilla.cfg file to C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\ and the local-settings.js file to C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref it has no effect on the settings in Firefox. I can go to about:config and see nothing has changed. 
   Any help is appreciated!

This is a recent problem I never had before. Flash videos on any website, even youtube, endlessly buffer and never play. No problem playing on Chrome. This is on my toshiba laptop (windows 10), no problem on my desktop computer (windows 7) My Firefox version is 54.0.1 64 bit My flash version is 26.0.0.131 Flash is set "always activate" in options. No message comes up and no security warning next to the URL Tried updating flash, no change. Tried giving the page the permission to allow flash instead of default by clicking on the green lock and changing that. What to try now?

(Also tried to upload an image on this page, and it seemed to be endlessly bufering as well, not sure if it will work or not, so I am just going to hit submit whether it does or not.)

When I go to a site and try to open something (like a monthly statement, etc.) instead of opening it in pdf so I can read it Firefox makes me download it, save it, and then open it. Then I have to go through the whole find it and delete it routine if I don't want to keep it. Don't know why this started to happen recently, and it does not do it on all sites.

I had read that in FF v22 Web RTC (Real Time Connections, PeerConnection and DataChannels) are enabled by default. This is a big no-no for me.

Where can I turn them off, is it possible to do this in one click (as for JavaScript or images)?

Will they bypass disabled in Windows Remote Access service?

Anything else I can do to block peer-to-peer and any remote access to my computer, while reading the Web will remain possible?

Thank you.

When the Print... dialogue comes up in Firefox, it shows that it will print to PaperPort. My system default printer is a Lexmark network printer. I checked my computer's Devices and Printers, and the Lexmark is checked as the default. Firefox is the only application that prints to PaperPort as a default and only since a recent update to Firefox 29.0.1. I would like the Lexmark to be the default printer for Firefox, as it is for all my other applications. It is annoying to have to manually select the correct printer each time I want to print.
