why must I Now*, on EVERY page that opens, have to go to "page info" and "ALLOW" all my stinking addons when they are already set to "Always Activate"??


The question pretty much says it all ... starting today* (10/1/13) EVERY page I open (whether I've already been there or not) shows Nothing until I go to 'Page Info'/Permissions, and ALLOW Every Stinking Addon I Have (for EACH page*) even though I ALREADY have all the addons SET to "ALWAYS ACTIVATE" under Tools/Addons options..?

 Did this have something to do with the Stinking java SE 7 upgrade FF said needed updating? I've restarted the browser, etc... and Nothing shows as needing any updates now... but I will try a pc reboot to see if that helps* ... but I have to say, these "update processes" are Really getting irritating.  I HAVE all my plugins/addons SET to Automatically check for updates but they Never Do!  I* have to manually check for updates when I notice sites, pages not playing well anymore.  Seems 1/2 the junk just doesn't work like it 'says' (or insinuates*) it will (Like "automatically check..", or "Always Activate").
 I hate to say this, but FF* is getting almost as convoluted and crappy as IE*.

Hello there,

Sounds very frustrating, let's try and reset your Firefox to see if that helps.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information.
Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

Further information can be found in the Reset Firefox – easily fix most problems article.

Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!

Always good to use the links to the KB as the instructions are automatically customised depending on if they are on a PC/Mac and the version of Firefox they use.
