Firefox doesn't recognize FLASH after update, no matter what. Also says to update plugins but there are none to update listed?

I have downloaded & re-downloaded FLASH, but after I updated my Firefox to 22.0 it no longer recognizes FLASH is installed on my computer. It also keep telling me "Some plugins required by this page have been blocked for your protection." When I check the plugins, the 3 listed are up to date, and the other 3 are marked "research" - which doesn't allow you to update them. I cannot discern that any of those are what is being blocked. When I click on Details, it brings me to a list of "Modules bloqués" and it's all listed in French...which would be great if spoke French or lived in France, but alas California is in the USA. My Java is updated, enabled & not blocked in any way. My Shockwave Flash is disabled & it will not give me the option to Enable it; I also cannot find a way to reinstall it or find a plugin to help me. !@#$%! So frustrating that this new "update" is useless. I hate 22.0.

What do I do now?

When I open a private browsing window on FF26, a Google.com cookie is placed. This cookie is not removed when finishing private browsing. The cookie is placed before any activities have taken place in either the normal FF window, or the private browsing window. No startpages are set, the windows open with a blank tab.

Where does the cookie come from and how do I permanently get rid of it?

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/986038]

Although I have "remember password" checked, I have to re-enter it every time I open FIrefox - Google is my homepage. To be fair, my username and password ARE remembered, but I would prefer to stay logged in permanently. This only became an issue when I added the PrivacyChoice Tracker Block add-on. I have since removed it from my toolbar. I also had a custom setting for Tools/Options/Privacy with exceptions to cookies but I have resorted back to Remember History. All cookies and cache are cleared. I'm not experiencing any other issues with other sites, yahoo, social media, etc. Just Google. Any ideas what to do next?

I was in a Forum with IE8, but am now using Firefox (IE8 wasn't working). I can't get signed into this other forum (something for WordPerfect), and their automatic reply said if I were using IE9 or IE 10 to use compatibility mode.

Closing as duplicate please continue with open thread /questions/982984?page=2#answer-527488 ~J99


I'm not even sure why I'm bothering this, as I can already anticipate the answers (i.e. try safe mode, create a new profile, clear cache, etc...), but whenever I try to access a Facebook page, I almost always get a hang and then a script error. I've tried all the "fixes" above and then some including experimenting with add-ons/plugins to see if any of those were the problem, and to no avail. This also happens alot with ANY kind of page that has an embedded Facebook "like" button. That includes A LOT of sites, these days, so I'm constantly getting script errors during my Facebook sessions.

Anyone (regular users) else have this issue and have any creative solutions, or is Firefox simply sucky at properly rendering basically anything that has to do with Facebook? I see that this issues seems to be completely ignored in each "upgrade" of the browser. The only thing that even half-way works is QuickJava, but as I'm sure users of this extension know, that can completely render hyperlinks unusuable, so you're constantly having to switch it on and off during loading of pages.

I really just want this here for documentation purposes.

Hello. Starting on 04/08/2014 the Thunderbird has stopped working in any way in my PC. I am running Windows 8.1 Pro x64. Before that day everything was ok and Thunderbird was working. I asked some friends using Windows 8 and they have the same problem. Thunderbird won't load the email accounts and won't send and receive any email. It won't even let us add a new email account. The message received when trying to add a new account is the following "Sorry - we're unable to communicate with our sign-up server. Please check your connection.". Also if we will try to move forward and add a new email account anyway the answer will be that Thunderbird can't connect to any server. We have uninstalled Thunderbird and install it again several times in the past days with no success. I was looking t delete the Thunderbird folder in Program files but I can't find it. The uninstall and install again procedure including deleting folder was a solution few years ago but it seams that now is not working anymore. I will really appreciate some help as my whole work is based on working with an email client and my work is stacked at the moment. I really don't know what other email client to use as the 2013 Outlook looks just terrible. Thank you very much

How can I get rid of tabbed browsing? I positively hate it and none of the choices in tools get rid of them.

I was using an older version of FF because the newer versions had messed up private browsing and I had the option of deciding if I wanted tabbed browsing. I switched to a newer version because a lot of sites didn't work with the older version.

I went into tools - tabs and checked what I used to use not to get tabbed browsing. Doesn't work.

Please tell me how to get rid of tabbed browsing and how to switch back and forth to private and regular browsing without opening a new tab/window.

If I can't get rid of tabbed browsing I guess I'll muddle along with an older version.

I know that firefox once put the tabs on top, but I had that fixed with setting in "about:config" the value for "browser.tabs.onTop" to "false". Now, after upgrading Firefox to v.29 this entry is still set to the false value, however, I can't get the tabs below the adressbar (which is super annoying). Any ideas how to resolve this?

FF29 has deactivated moving tabs to bottom - i.e. closer to work area, FORCING users to move the pointer farther to select a tab. about:config setting no longer works. Would someone please explain how removing this option is beneficial to users?

.... just more "we are smarted than you, and know better than you what is best for you" elitist crap.

And don't tell me to use an extension, they come and go, don't work after updates, etc.


Moderator locking this thread. The thread Owner never returned and this thread has strayed off-topic too often. I think users needing Firefox 29 support would be better served by starting their own Questions thread.

I recently. Upgraded to the new Firefox for android and all of my tabs disappeared which was unexpected, but alright. What is not alright though is that after I fixed the tabs I wanted they disappeared again when I closed the browser. I have it set to restore tabs, but it only does so 1 or 2 times out of 10 and never when I restart my phone. How can I fix this? It's just plain annoying! I never had this issue with 28!
