Like others I am tearing my hair out over repeated Flash crashes (FF25.0, win 8.1).No matter what updates etc - you get the idea....

One solution deep in help is 'Re-initializing the plugins database'. This really works but I wonder is there some way I could run this each time I start up Firefox to pre-empt the problem with Flash?

I had already bought a registered version of IDM cc 7.3.49 before I upgraded my Firefox to 25.0.1. After the upgrade Firefox disabled IDM integration, and so I can not download flash videos or anything using IDM. I neither know if upgrading my IDM will solve the problem or not, nor I am not willing to pay for a new IDM upgrade. Please guide me if there is a way to solve the issue, or a way to restore my Firefox to its previous version or versions listed in my upgrade history.

Best Regards,

Alex

Despite having spent several hours searching fruitlessly on the internet, I still cannot find a quick and simple fix for removing Yahoo as the default Firefox search engine. I do not want rubbishy Yahoo search results. I want to use Google, and if Mozilla Firefox won't let me remove the Yahoo default and nominate Google, then I will walk away and use a different web browser.

There is no simple way to dump Yahoo as the default searcher on Firefox 25.0.1. There is no 'search engine preference' tab in the Firefox drop-down tab, and Yahoo does not show up in the add-ons or extensions list. Nor can I change settings in about:config in the browser.newtab.url line. It is almost as if Mozilla is making it impossibly hard for users to chose which search engine they want.

If Mozilla want to make users use Yahoo then they should clearly state that this when they install Firefox software. I do not like being manipulated in such a cynical way.

If anyone can show me how to easily change my settings so that Google becomes my default search engine then I will be grateful. Thanks in advance.

I used to be able to load videos from this and other websites without any problems. I think it may have start happening with a Firefox upgrade to v24 or v25. I access the website. Select any video to load and it never gets past 1% load. It used to load 100% and I could view it and using RealPlayer download the video to my hard drive. I can't do that now within Firefox. Any video from the same website using Internet Explorer loads, I can view it, and using RealPlayer download the video to my hard drive. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling RealPlayer and it still doesn't work within Firefox.

In MS-IE, there is an option to display all the temporary internet files, which can then be copied to other folders to save them. In this case, I'm trying to find an audio file that was apparently downloaded from a seminar, because it played in its entirety without an internet connection. So anyway, where do I look, i.e. in what folder, does Firefox store its temporary files?

It seems like every time I click a link in a search page, whatever the provider, it opens a new tab. I've gone into "about:config" changed the browser.search.tab to "true" without any change. What is with this? The earlier versions of FF allowed me to click a link in Google or where ever and it opened in the same tab. I need help with this issue. Is there a bug no one knows about? I've followed all suggestions on the forums and nothing seems to change. I did find however that "Youtube" links do open in the same tab. Strange!

Please help, getting overloaded with too many tabs.

Since sometime in October, 2013, I have noticed that more and more YouTube videos stop playing within a minute of starting. Most that stop do so in 15 or 16 seconds. The playing stops because the download stops. I watch this on a network activity monitor I always have running. Not all videos do this, but the problem is becoming more and more frequent. Some videos which played correctly for me in the recent past are now exhibiting this problem.

Other than installing the latest Firefox updates I have NOT changed the software on my machine. I run Linux by the way. I do not think this is a Linux problem because (1) it was all working before and (2) my son who runs both Mac OS X *and* Windows is also seeing the same problem. We both use Firefox as our browser on all our platforms.

I should also note that I am NOT seeing this problem with any of the other video websites I use, only when I go to YouTube. That leads me to believe that the problem is not in Firefox; if it were it should affect videos from all websites.

Additionally the problem occurs whether or not I log into YouTube.

I have not run Firefox in safe mode because all the extensions I use did not affect the download of Videos before, so I don't expect unchanged extensions to suddenly start causing problems.

So, anyone else see this problem? (There was another note which talked about the same problem but it was disabled.)

Also -- pardon my paranoia, but -- I need to ask: Since YouTube is owned by Google and Google has its own browser it wants you to use, Chrome, is it possible that Google is intentionally causing some YouTube videos to fail if it sees that they are being sent to Firefox?

(That is not so outlandish I think. Microsoft WAS at one point caught mangling web pages going to certain web browsers other than IE. And these days Google wants to dominate the Internet just as badly as Microsoft does, so why not pull dirty tricks too?)

If this keeps happening I am going to have to try Google's Chrome to see if it somehow manages to play YouTube videos correctly while Firefox does not. But I really do NOT want to install Chrome because I trust Google about as much as I trust Microsoft, which is to say Not At All.

Thanks in advance.

I have come across pages from time to time that try to prevent me from closing them by continuously opening dialog boxes. Generally these come up as pop-ups or hidden redirects from other pages, rather than from a site that I actually intended to visit. The only fix that currently works is to drag the offending tab into it's own window and ignore it. This allows me to continue browsing, but the only way to get rid of it is to force quit Firefox.

When I did a web search for a way to prevent any further dialogs from opening from a given page all I could find were repeated requests to get rid of the feature and no way to get it back now that it's gone.

My suggestion would be to make an option available, if it does not already exist and easily accessible to force close a tab. This action should kill any scripts that it might be running and close it with out permitting any dialog boxes, pop-up windows or any other action. Placing it in the right click menu alongside "close tab" would be ideal, though if this is considered dangerous in the hands of the average user then create it and use a preferences bit to enable it so advanced users can enable it themselves.

Flash has been unresponsive and crashing all day, well over 30 times just today. The problem just started this morning. The error message I get is that the Shockwave plugin is unresponsive or busy. I haven't installed anything new in weeks. I cannot access any website where flash is required without it crashing after a few moments, moreso with videos. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling three times- as stated in the title, both Firefox and Flash are up to date. Mozilla doesn't find any new required updates on the plugin page.

I am unable to click on settings after right clicking on any flash application (if it lets me get that far)- and that just sends it into another hang. Therefore, I am unable to deaccelerate the hardware, which I've seen as a popular solution. Flash also doesn't work on Chrome or IE because it crashes similarly.

These are the last 5 crash reports.

Please, help! I know that flash is the problem, because when it's uninstalled Firefox runs fine. I've uninstalled RealPlayer and any known problems with flash plugins. No matter what I do I'm stuck.

When I am browsing I get a new window with a message about updating my video player with a popup style window in front that just says accept and install. All my video players are up to date and this sure seems like something that would either be automatic or in add-ons.

I've cleared cookies multiple times

I've emptied the cache

I cleared my download history, and a majority of my browsing history

I've tried having hardware acceleration for both flash and firefox on and off

I turned off all my apps and plugins and when that did nothing I turned back on the ones I need. I never had a lot of apps to begin with. only a max of 5. I had quite a few plugins, but i disabled all but quicktime, flash, and silverlight. I have those three set on "ask to activate" so none are "always active" anymore.

I also tried a couple things from the FAQ and forums here about changing a few settings in the "about:config" setup.

A few of the above things initially worked, but after a day or two it'd be back to sucking up my CPU and memory. I would then try the same thing again, and this second time there would be no improvement. The real memory will fluctuate between 200 MB and 1.7 GB, and has done so for quite a while.

Even after I've left streaming sites, and sites with lots of images, and I'm not downloading anything, the memory and the CPU will still do that. I only have a handful of tabs open at a timeusually, and all of them are mostly text. I'll quit and reopen firefox, which will initially bring the memory and CPU usage down, but it inevitably climbs up quite quickly, regardless of my tab usage. It'll be the same if I'm playing a flash game or scrolling through blogs.

I never had any of these problems with Firefox 23, and my internet usage habits haven't changed at all. I had some of this slowness a few times with version 24, but nowhere near as bad as this, or as constant. Almost everyday I end up googling for other ways to speed things up. Everything I do never slowed down Firefox on earlier versions.

I've tried all my usual tasks on Safari which will never climb above 30-40 MB of memory, even on netflix streaming, or flash games, and the CPU will average around 8 and 11%.
