Hi:

 I'm helping a family with Firefox 15.01. Their children installed a rogue game plugin, Iwingames, which preys on children infecting computers, installing redirection adware etc. It's incompatible with Firefox 15.01. We know it's dangerous but it can't be disabled, not in safe mode, not manually. So sure as shooting, the rogue company will update their plugin and the computer will be infected again. Why is Firefox enabling predator companies by preventing users from disabling incompatible plugins? It's a ticking time-bomb. Do I have to tell them to cease using Firefox and switch to IE? WHAT ARE YOU THINKING!

Every time I use the Flash plug-in (for videos on YouTube or PutLocker or whatever), FireFox just slows down a lot and even freezes. It happens very often now and it's really annoying.

By the way, I am using a gaming laptop so I am not sure why I am having these problems. My Flash plug-in and firefox are updated to the latest versions, too.

My specs: Windows 7 Home Premium Intel i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHZ (8 CPUs) nVidia GTX 560m 3GB vRAM dedicated 16GB RAM

I have tried reinstalling the Java Plugin for Firefox over and over and over again, but it says that I still need to install it when I go to a website that requires it. I made sure that the plugins page for Firefox says that it is enabled (which it is). Java works fine in IE for me, and Chrome. Firefox is the only browser where Java is not working.

Please help me, or I will be switching to a different browser. Thank you.

Firefox keeps asking if I want to restore the previous session and this has been a problem since Firefox 4.

I have told Firefox to not save any history or cookies and also clear everything when Firefox closes, I have told it to show my homepage when Firefox is starting and I have tried deleting sessionstore.js. I use the following settings in about:config

browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo 0 browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo 0

browser.sessionstore.privacy_level 2 browser.sessionstore.privacy_level_deferred 2 browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash false

I'm currently using Firefox 15 beta with no add-ons on Windows Vista. Firefox sometimes doesn't ask if I want to restore the session, but only if I did close it from the drop down menu and not the x button. Firefox is closing properly.

Thanks in advance.

Having trouble getting an .ogg video file to play in firefox. No video with supported format and MIME type found?

Hello, I'm trying to get a video to play in firefox. I've tested it in all other browsers and on iPad and mobile and have had no issues with getting it to play, except in firefox. I get this error: No video with supported format and MIME type found? I'm a front end guy and I'm not sure what to do here. Here is the site: www.manhattanphysicalmedicine.com.

I've contacted the host (GoDaddy) and they said to include a web.config file that re directs the browser to pull up the .ogg file. They are hosting on a windows server so i was told that an .htaccess file would not work. Here is the code in the web.config file:

<configuration>
  <system.webServer>
    <staticContent>
      <remove fileExtension=".mp4" />
      <mimeMap fileExtension=".mp4" mimeType="video/mp4" />
      <mimeMap fileExtension=".ogg"  mimeType="video/ogg" />
    </staticContent>
  </system.webServer>
</configuration>

Here is the HTML:

 <video width="560" height="300" controls autoplay>
 <source src="images/flashintro.mp4" type="video/mp4"/>
 <source src="images/flashintro.ogg" type="video/ogg"/>
 <object id="FlashID" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="560" height="300">
 <param name="movie" value="images/flashintro.swf">

Don't know why the code above is not showing?

I placed the web.config file on the root folder with no success. This seems harder than it should be. Maybe I'm missing something obvious? Is it worth bothering with .ogg files? Is there another option?

Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

Thanks,

Gerry

When trying to print in Firefox, and when scaling the page size in page setup, the first page prints correctly, but subsequent pages do not scale correctly and are too large for the paper, with parts of the text are being cut off at the top and right. This is not fixed by checking or un-checking the "ignore scaling/shrink to fit page width" in the print window, or by changing the scaling%.

I am running Firefox 15.0.1, on Mac OS 10.5.8.

The same problem happens in the print preview and if I save the print as a .pdf

I have tried all the fixes in the how to's and others in various forums with no improvement.

This happens every time I try to print a document scaled up or down only in Firefox.

When I transfer over my favorites from Internet Explorer, not all of the favorites transfer over. Is there a limit on the number that can be moved over to Firefox? I see all my favorites in the My Favorites file, and on favorites when I open IE, but only half of them transfer over. Is there a cause for this? It is the same on both my machines using Vista and 7.

So essentially, it seems that somehow my PC has picked up a version of the Google redirect virus. It is only affecting Firefox, and it seems to be a bit stealthier than previous versions. Essentially, 70% of the time I try and click on a search result (only the first one clicked per search), it will redirect me to a php script on a different server. It seems the script analyzes what I searched and attempts to redirect me to a phishing site that has related information about my search e.g. realgamerz.net and other shady URLs. I assumed it was a registry issue, but despite using all of the below virus/malware scanners nothing has been found. Is it possible one of my plugins has been compromised and that it has something to do with the Firefox software/Firefox plugins? Your advice is much appreciated.

1) Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2011 Professional 2) HijackThis 3) SuperAntiSpyware 4) Spybot S&D

If there are other recommended malware scanners you think I should try I would be happy to do so.

I have been using Firefox for some time now. I love the browser. I really really hate this plugin check page that opens every time I open Firefox. It is just annoying.

I updated all the plugins that were vulnerable, but there are some other plugins that it doesn't seem to recognize or whatever, and it asks me to research those. Is this the reason why the plugin check continuously pops up?

I don't know why Mozilla designed this page to be so annoying. I know it's as simple as closing out of it, but it is just buggy to me and a constant reminder that I don't know something about these plugins LOL it drives me crazy...

Please help. Thanks.

After the update to Firefox 15 the text looks really bad on some pages, like Facebook.

I made a comparison of screen dumps to show the differences in Firefox (FF), Google Chrome (CH) and Internet Explorer (IE)

See comparison screen dump

The only way I can get normal text i Facebook is by unchecking the Firefox option to let pages set their own fonts - but that is no solution as it makes a lot of other pages look crappy

So : What to do to get the types in Facebook, look good?

The new JavaScript debugger in Firefox 15 closes immediately when I try to open it.

The Firefox application does not crash. Just the debugger.

Within a fraction of a second, the bottom of the screen shows and then closes a panel.

I tried disabling all extensions, but it didn't help.

I tried the "Reset Firefox" button, but it didn't help.

Issue is in Firefox 15.0.1 on Ubuntu Linux 12.04 on a Compaq Presario CQ62 that has an AMD processor.

My other Ubuntu 12.04 installation on a Macbook Pro does not have this issue.

When is Firefox going to fix this?

In every version after 3.6, I have had to click twice or "reload" the page. If I close the page and click again or reload the page, it immediately comes up.

It is not because of problems in my computer. I went into safe mode and disabled all add-ons and got the same result. It happens on 80-90% of the websites. There are a few sites that consistently load immediately but most I have to reload the page or wait for the page to load which can easily take 30 seconds to a minute.

I have a fast download of 28 and upload of 6. I have a clean computer, plenty of ram memory and have limited programs allowed to activate on start up. I usually have very few tabs open at a time. I've cleared cache and done all the usual things always recommended to do.

This is very frustrating and it has to have something to do with bugs in changes of versions since 3.6. That version worked perfectly. These latest versions up to the most recent update have been consistently more and more problems.

I restarted my computer this morning, as it was running a bit slugglish. The restart initiated both a Firefox update and a Flash update to the latest versions. I've uninstalled Flash several times with the Flash uninstaller. I've even down-graded to 10.3. Same result. Firefox simply isn't recognizing the install and I'm unable to view any Flash content. On any page that requires it, the 'Install Missing Plugin' button appears. Whether it's 10.3 or the latest 11.4, it doesn't exist in the Add-ons manager. I've installed the latest real Player as well, in case it had something to do with the issue. No apparent connection. No issues with the installations themselves have been experienced - everything proceeds as expected.

Any ideas?

Firefox fails to delete cookies if set to do so on quitting and if the settings 'General->Show my windows and tabs from last time' have been set.

The problem is described e.g. as bug 794253, 443354 and 401187:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=794253 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=443354 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=401187 .

As a result user tracking through cookies can continue even if Firefox had been closed before. Moreover another user could resume an earlier session and access pages an earlier user had not logged off from.

A work around is also described in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=443354 :
edit direct link to comment -J99 bug 443354 c48

In about:config set browser.sessionstore.privacy_level & browser.sessionstore.privacy_level_deferred to 1 or 2 as described with the bug report.

However, as a general solution this problem needs to be fixed in Firefox since most people will neither be aware of the problem nor of the work around.

Users can vote for this bug in Bugzilla to promote its solution.

I asked this question in April, but it received only one useless response. Nothing has happened since then, while newer versions of Firefox have been released.

Please click Javascript (250.00 MB) on the page http://aia.lmsal.com/aia_cadence/aia_0193_rdiff_orig_20120623_0630/AIA_0193_RDIFF_ORIG_20120623_0630.html. It runs without problem under Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer, but using Firefox newer than version 15, partially blank frames appear, making it hard to view the movie.

I first thought the problem was combined with Mac OS (mine is 10.6.8), but the same problem of blank frames is noted in Firefox 22 on Windows 7.

Therefore, I must conclude Firefox has started to screw up on Javascript since version 17 (or 16, which failed to be released.)

So, to developers, please check whatever changes were made in version 17 (or 16) as to how to handle Javascript movies.
