You Tube seems to be the only site affected. However i was able to download Wednesday with no problem. DH works normally, I select a download option, it starts and finishes quickly with a 0 mb result. I tried changing the download location, the name and/or extension of the file, and still the same thing.

What I want to know is why Mozilla would, in effect, make it's latest "upgrade " amount to a downgrade...at least for me...and here is the reason- I downloaded Firefox 22 & now the add-on Easy Youtube Downloader is not compatible. For me this add-on is ESSENTIAL. what i had to do was go back to Firefox 21 & I also know of at least 10 other people who did this for the same reason. What i want to know is if & when this add-on will be available with upgrade versions of Firefox. I prefer Firefox over any other browser & would HATE to have to switch because I have been using it for many years. How can I directly contact MF & have them email me or let me know whether this add-on will be available or does anyone have contacts at MF who can let me know? Also still irritated that Google Tool Bar is not compatible & has not been for over a year...come on MF...you are gonna lose customers!

This add-on extension "Disconnect", after upgrading to Firefox 29 now displays only a tiny drop down box when clicked vs the full drop down menu. Before the upgrade it worked fine. It does this whether adding it to the tool icons in the upper right of the window (left of the new Firefox dropdown menu) or whether adding it to the Firefox menu itself as an additional icon. The extension appears to work in terms of blocking adds/tracking, as before, just can't see what is in the drop down menu. Already tried disabling and re-enabling, no change.

I downloaded the AVG toolbar and search engine. My computer says it installed - only it does not appear when I open Firefox. For what is it worth, when I downloaded it on my Admin acct (same computer) it worked fine, but didn't transfer to my standard acct.

Out of suddenly, all of my add-ons expect Adblock Plus disabled and I can't enable them, and I didn't change nothing on my laptop at that time. I tried to do Troubleshooting Information, restart my laptop, uninstall and install Mozilla twice, by deleting even all files about Mozilla, but nothing worked. I even tried to do a system restore, but it don't worked because it has a problem in a file! Useful info: When I install again the Mozilla and I install again the add-ons, they are enable and they are working fine, but when I close the browser and open it again, the add-ons are disabled again... And I don't know if that means something, but I have also problem to do the Windows Updates the last week, it can't complete. I have Windows 7 x64 and the lasted edition of Mozilla Firefox. Any ideas?

P.S. English isn't my first language, so sorry if I did any mistakes.

Recently, I needed to reset my 'Main work Computer' to factory default. Before I wiped everything I saved all the messages addresses etc via Mozback, I then transferred all the info to the laptop to see if it works, which it does.

After this I re-installed Thunderbird to my recently reset computer, I used Mozback up to restore all the information as set like it was previously.

It was working great for about a day then only recently I came across this problem:

Thunderbird still receives mail & I can read it, however when I try 'compose new message', 'reply' or 'forward' a message the new box will open up ready to type into except it freezes & it says not responding.

I have it on my laptop & its working fine for now but I'm wanting it to work on the Main Computer!!

What should I do??

I am creating a dual boot PC with Win XP and Win 7. I have Firefox on my XP side with lots of plugins. Is there a way to load all those plugins from my XP to my 7 without having to reload all of them? Are they all stored in a folder somewhere that I can just copy over?

When the downloadhelper icon animates, I click on it as usual if I want to capture. The button operates normally, displays the video name and I click quick download. Nothing downloads, the library says no downloads for this session. However there is an icon in my download folder, but nothing plays -- there is no download. Everything works fine, except there is no download. Version 36?

Up until a few days ago I was using download helper to download various files to my PC. Yesterday I noticed it wasn't working. The file I want to download shows up in the log, I click on it, a Windows Explorer window pops up with the file name. I click on save as usual, the pop up closes and then nothing happens. No files are downloading. I don't even get a 0 byte file.

Anybody else have this problem and if so, is there a solution?

Thank you, ~k

It works on most videos but there are several that won't download properly. Whenever I try it says "0 bytes" and the video won't play with Media Player, Realplayer, or any other program. Does anyone know how to fix this or another Firefox addon for me to try? I also tried downloading the videos with Realplayer's download too but that won't work either.
