Ctrl+F or View > Find opens the Find Bar at the bottom of the page just above the Firefox Status Bar. See: https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Searching+within+a+page

  • Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 11.5
  1. Check your plugin versions: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/
    • Note: plugin check page does not have information on all plugin versions
  2. Update Shockwave for Director
    • NOTE: this is not the same as Shockwave Flash; this installs the Shockwave Player.
    • Use Firefox to download and SAVE the installer to your hard drive from the link in the article below (Desktop is a good place so you can find it).
    • When the download is complete, exit Firefox (File > Exit)
    • locate and double-click in the installer you just downloaded, let the install complete.
    • Restart Firefox and check your plugins again.
