I'm a member at the video download helper forum http://forum.downloadhelper.net/ since more than a year. I made a posting today. It vanished from the forum after a while. (Or rather, it worked, but didn't show up in the forum, as I found out later.) I made another posting, and made a direct bookmark for that one. That bookmark link worked. It turns out that the forum page says latest posting on the website was 7th of July, this year. That's patently wrong. Then I made an answering post to my second post, to tell that the site says no postings, and that a direct link still works. Something may be wrong with the forum software? That posting was immediately placed under moderation. (The bug I have is that vdlh 499 does not work with youtube today, and it did yesterday. Firefox 14.01, Win XP Prof.)

I realize it may be a little bit early to ask here, but their behavior seems to me as an outsider to be a little bit strange. No answers, no reaction, and then suddenly I'm under moderation.

Do you guys know anything about the situation? Do you know those guys enough to contact them in any practical way?

thank you very much/Rolf

Support for "Date first visited" for history items was removed from Firefox. What was going on behind the scenes to cause this to happen?

Information about "First date visited" *was* available on previous versions of Firefox. Well, if I had to guess, someone at Mozilla thought it would be a good idea to exclude this information, and the problem is, "Why do that?" You can see the "date added" for bookmarks, yet there is no equivalent for history items. I am left with the disturbing impression that someone at Mozilla was thinking, "Why should you care about the first date you visited a website anyway? Is it that important to know?" Imagine if Microsoft no longer supported fields such as "Date created" or "Date last modified" in future versions of Windows. I'm pretty sure that would upset a good number of people.

I have some demo pages for a plugin on github. Oddly, I can't get the favicon to show up in Firefox (try the simple demo page). They show up in webkit browsers and IE without any problems. The effected pages are "Main", "Simple", "Expand", "Video" and "FX".

Even more strange is that only one demo page ("CSS3") shows the favicon on the tab and when saved as a bookmark, but none of the other pages will.

Since today when I start up Firefox, I get the warning that Firefox isn't working anymore. Even before I see Google (my starting page) the warning pops up. I tried many solutions, from installing again, updating to version 14.0.1, starting my PC again, even the Safe Mode isn't working. I searched on the internet for solutions, but none are working so far. I really like Firefox and want to use it again. I dont have any crash ID or reports about it, because firefox is searching for an solution, but cant find one. After that he just closes the firefox screen.

Hi, I am having the worst time trying to remove Babylon homepage from Firefox, this is what I've already tried:

- Disable and Remove Babylon add on - Uninstall Babylon toolbar from Control Panel - Remove Babylon search engine from Manage Search Engines - Reset all lines that contain something about Babylon on about:config page - Change homepage from Tools > Options > General tab - Clean all registry keys, values and data with Babylon in it - Reset all registry keys to their default values - Uninstalling Mozilla Firefox - Deleting every file about Babylon - Reinstalling Mozilla Firefox - Resetting Firefox to factory defaults from about:support page - Resetting Firefox from Help > Restart with Add ons Disabled... - I have even tried to restore my system to a point before it started happening.

I have already read every forum in mozilla support, but nothing seems to work, I just can't get rid of it and it is absolutely annoying. There is nothing in babylon web page that has helped me.

Do you have any other ideas to remove completely this annoying issue?

Basic info: using Firefox 14, was working fine until i came back from vacation, fired up my PC, and updated 3 things, Adobe Flash, Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit), and AMD Catalyst control center with the new 12.8 update, then restarted.

Have slowly been attempting to pin down the cause. Uninstalled Flash, firefox still crashes. Tried moving the Mozilla folder to desktop so I could simulate a reset, firefox crashed anyway, so i put the old folder back.

Read some troubleshooting pages on the firefox page and went down the list making sure all was updated and then tried running in Safe mode. So far no crash and we are going on 15 min here, the best I've seen so far.


Note: Just realized my Java version was out of date, uninstalled the old versions and installed the new version. Will see if this helps.

Note 2: Nope, Firefox is still crashing regularly. Java was not the issue. Didn't think so, but was hoping....

Since I got up Wednesday evening, I have been getting "This video is currently unavailable" when I try to view Youtube videos, both embedded and on the Youtube page for said video.

This happens more often than not. It only happens in Firefox, Chrome and MSIE do just fine. When I got up Thursday evening and started my system, I got a message from Adobe that Flash needed to update, I updated, no effect.

Here's three vids where the problem is happening https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6phrXDGHIo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ4ffqXg6RA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-6SmnvMbGk

Apparently, the problem is with Firefox. What can I do to fix this?

I do not use tabs and it's intrusive when they pop up all the time even though I have tried to disable them. I used to use the Tab Killer add-on ages ago but it's no longer current.

I don't use Firefox because of all the browsers, it's the only one where tabs just won't go away by fiddling with the settings, and I would desperately like to use an alternative browser that isn't attached to the less-than-honorable entity known as Google.

I have just updated to the newest version of firefox and now whenever I visit a secure website I am told it is an untrusted connection and have to add an exception to visit it. When viewing the certificate it states it cannot be verified for unknown reasons.

This is happening with all websites including reputable sites like Google or Facebook.

web page calls script as follows:

<script type='text/javascript' src='/helpers/js/infinite.js'></script><script>var getNext=6;var pgn = 5;setInterval(scroll, 1000);</script>

infinite.js is a simple ajax call that reads next [pgn] articles starting at [getNext]. After upgrade to 14.0.1, the script doesn't seem to load with the page. When I switch to console, it takes up to 30 seconds for the script to load and execute, after which functionality is as before. This problem is unique to Firefox and occurs only since the upgrade. All platforms (Mac, Windows) are affected.
