VLC 2.1.3.0 plugin updated to 2.1.5.0 (Firefox 31, Windows 7 x64) but Firefox still shows it as 2.1.3.0 and as up-to-date. I checked Registry and it does have new version. I remember from years ago a folder in windows where the old version dll file occasionally would remain. Any help here?

Since updating to Firefox 31.0, the vast majority of Google / web fonts are not displaying correctly, including icons that are being replaced with random characters. When I view the Google web fonts page, only a few display correctly, the rest just default to a sans-serif font.

- I've tried running in safe mode with no add-ons enabled. - I've tried disabling all add-ons then re-enabling one by one. - I've checked the tickbox in the font settings for 'Allow pages to use their own fonts' is ticked

Any help appreciated, it's got quite frustrating now. Thanks, Greg

It has been a long time since I have used Firefox (got a Macbook, and for some reason just used Safari for a long time), so please forgive me if I am just missing something in the Firefox settings.

Anywho, I have Firefox set up to not remember my history because I like the privacy it offers. I think it is odd that I have it set up to delete my history, yet when you go to "History", it keeps a list of all my closed tabs... Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of having the browser not save my history?

Is there a way to prevent Firefox from keeping this list of my recently closed tabs?

Hi

I am needing to test that a certain website is compatible with Firefox. A certain bit of functionality on this site requires ja certain version of java, which I have installed on my machine. This functionality works in IE and Chrome and also works in my personal machine using Firefox but for some reason does not work on my work machine, so I am suspecting it is to do with how firefox is installed on my work machine or security policies or something. Firefox does not detect my java version when I use the following url 'http://www.java.com/en/download/uninstallapplet.jsp'. For Chrome and IE the correct version of java is returned.

Do you have any idea of what could be causing this issue?

Thanks.

Tam.

After the recent update, the font started to get badly rendered. Kind of blurry with jagged edges and transparent parts. It used to be okay D:

Sometimes it becomes okay for a moment as I scroll down on pages, and sometimes when I stop scrolling, the font stays as it is; as if there are specific positions for the text to render properly. However, not all of the fonts are affected. Only the ones inside the scroll area.

On times that the font renders properly, the bookmarks font, title bar, and tab names are unaffected and still appear not-smooth. Same thing does not happen on other browsers. All my other system fonts look okay; it's really just Firefox.

Restarting Firefox = didn't work Restarting Computer = didn't work Tried setting up Clear Type = didn't work Tried enabling and disabling Hardware Acceleration on Firefox = didn't work Tried enabling and disabling the Graphics card itself = didn't work Tried just about all of the suggestions I found on Google = none worked Tried complete uninstall and re-install of Firefox 32.0 = didn't work

Graphics Driver are updated ~ Windows is updated ~

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6800


I fixed it by downgrading to Firefox 31 which makes me sure that 32.0 is the culprit. As I was about to send the message on top; I tried downgrading as my last resort and it worked. Now I'm only sending this as a report. I am hoping you'll figure out what caused it because I am quite strict (OC) that everything in my PC must remain updated >_<; thus I want to use Firefox 32.0 as much as possible.

Firefox v 31 and Windows 7.

Since Friday early, I got this: "Something happened on our end. Please refresh your browser or close it and sign in again." ... After I signed in again, I got this error: "We can't connect to Outlook.com right now. Please try again later."

What's new with outlook.com occurred overnight (Thursday). There is a now a Messaging section in the lower left portion of Home page, which slowly loads with icons of people (with names) that I know. I just checked the five icons in that section. I know two of the five names - and I'm not remotely interested in messaging any of them.

The reason I'm here is that outlook.com is accessible on IE.

Is this a Firefox/outlook conflict?

Can I remove this awful feature?

There is no information about downed servers, and as usual, no solutions for this very specific message at Microsoft.

Thank you.

Howdy,

I run a Private Certificate Authority for my personal use and just to learn about SSL Certs. However, with the current build of FireFox I'm on ( 31 ) I can no longer visit sites I've secured with SSL Certs signed by this certificate authority, even though these SSL certs work just perfectly fine in Chrome and Internet Explorer. I keep getting a "sec_error_inadequate_cert_type" error. I can only assume that the certs I've been issuing are incorrect in some way, but the error is so vague and the error page doesn't specify more.

I only discovered this when I realized some of my SSL certs had expired, and I went to re-issue them.

One of the certs that hasn't expired yet but is experiencing problems can be found here:

One of the Certs I've tried re-issuing, matching fields included as closely as I can to a Google SSL cert that I looked up is here:

These certificates were generated using the application called SimpleAuthority, found here: http://simpleauthority.com/

A Site like Networking4All.com seems to believe the Certs are valid, excepting the CA that is Self Signed: http://www.networking4all.com/en/support/tools/site+check/report/?fqdn=phpmyadmin.endofevolution.com&protocol=https

Interestingly enough, using a different site like SSLShopper shows an error similar to FF31: http://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=https://phpmyadmin.endofevolution.com

The certs are running on an Apache Web server: Apache/2.2.21 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.2.21 OpenSSL/1.0.0e PHP/5.3.10

The CA Cert is in FireFox's store as trusted.

If needed, I can provide certs.

I recently started getting this message intermittently on various websites and having to click on it sometimes many times to get rid is getting to be a pain. Most of the web self help stuff relates to IE8 and I recently allowed my PC to download a whole bunch of updates without checking first. A lot related to IE8 which I don't have -I uninstalled on the day I bought the PC, so may be a problem there? I'm a PC numpty, so easy to follow steps to remedy the problem would be much appreciated, thanks.

PC Windows 7 Pro 32 bit

I have previously saved PDF files on my desktop. When I open the PDF, firefox sees fit to open a new tab even though I do not have the browser open. This is annoying because after I close the PDF I then have to close the New Tab browser window as well. This costs me a lot of productivity time as I open a lot of PDF's for work. The PDF file use to show the Adobe logo on the file on desktop. Once I installed firefox it now shows the firefox logo?

I have already set PDF's to open with Adobe as default through Menu-Options-Applications
