Ever since Firefox made Youtube videos only play in HTML5, no matter what quality setting I have on the video I'm watching, when I view the video on fullscreen it has low framerate. This problem does not happen with other video sites that uses Flash, like Twitch, Blip, or Dailymotion.

Is it software related to the browser or hardware related with it being HTML5?

Since I installed FF 37, the PDF files of my website render incorrectly (choppy image), using the native PDF viewer.

There is no such problem in IE or Chrome. Version 37.0.2 didn't fix the problem.

As my viewers are really general public (may not know how to install different plugin), i might just suggest NOT using FF on my website if this is not fixed quickly!

When I was checking out Plug-ins and updating them, I was not prepared for the Adobe DC with Cloud and the other things it has to offer. The Adobe XI that I had contained my PDF files. When my Vista OS fell apart, I lost quite a few things. The only thing I do not like is that you cannot get the older version of Adobe back on the desktop unless you are an IT person, which I am not. I know it has to be on the hard drive. I have tried to download it, but it comes up this an error stating that Adobe DC is the version I want. I have a Dell Windows 7 Professional Inspiron 3847 2013. I just wish I could have my Adobe XI.

I am working from a brand new instal of Windows; also new video card, processor, hard drive. Last night Firefox was crashing every five minutes. It crashed once before I put on my addons, and multiple times after (somewhere around 30 times). I tried rolling back to an older version of Firefox and that crashed as well. It will either crash on startup, or it will open my tabs and then shut down.

Here is the information that might be helpful: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-864db5b8-b866-4d20-9f60-913862150406

I ran Firefox reset to get rid of my add-ons, but they were: Extensions: Adblock plus 2.6.9, Amazon Smile 1button for Firefox, Norton Toolbar 2014.7.12.7, reddit enhancement suite 4.5.4, abd speed dial [fvd] 6.6.7.

Theme: Fractal Frost

Plugins: OpenH264 Video by Cisco 1.3 (always activate); Shockwave flash 13.0.0.277 (always); NVIDIA 3d vision 7.17.13.4788 (ask to activate) - 2 of these, one Vision and one Vision Streaming; and WildTangent Games (never activate/disabled).

It has crashed at least 3 times since I reset Firefox.

In Yahoo mail premium-add free I can no longer access or close tabs. Messages open in tabs, tabs persist but I need to exit mail to close them. I can get back to In box and other categories but not the tabs. I figured it was Yahoo until I noticed the functions work with Chrome. Note: The free yahoo does not have multiple tabs and appears to be working normally. Regards

I've got one folder on Bookmark Toolbar with many bookmarks in it. I don't need it now but don't want to delete it either. The best solution would it be to move this folder with bookmarks to e.g. the MyDocuments folder, which is residing on another partition. When I need it in the future, then I'd like to move this folder back to Bookmark Toolbar. In Internet Explorer such operations are very simple to perform. How can I achieve this goal in Firefox?

Hi: I've googled for about 2 days and then sent my question to fedoraforum.org but didn't get any useful responses atleast yet. Then I started looking on the mozilla forum and it seems that this problem has been encountered before but I'm not knowledgeable enough to understand how to fix it. I went through both documents that explain about ipv6, dns prefetching, clearing you cache etc but still no luck. Here's my problem, but like I said, I think other people have had it also.

Background:

I am learning how to write code to access data from github by using the github api. It is actually an on line course assignment where the problem popped up. no pun intended. I am using linux fedora 19. At the github application site, you need to specify a callback url so that github has some place to send the data that you retrieved back to you. ( this is atleast how I understand it. this is all quite new to me. my understanding could be incorrect ).

So, then I googled and found a note where someone recommended using http://localhost:1410 as the callback url in the github api where you get the secret key etc. So, I use http://localhost:1410 as suggested. But that person might use windows or internet explorer so I don't know if using localhost:1410 is correct. Maybe I should be using something else ?

PROBLEM:

To make a long story shorter, when I use that localhost:1410, I get the error that mozilla cannot access that site. Like I said, I've seen other threads on mozilla support with similar issues but the solutions weren't clear to me. I am not using a proxy so my connection settings are basically blank except that No Proxy is filled in.

My other thought was that maybe I'm supposed to type 1410 somewhere on the connection settings page. It also says No Proxy for localhost.127.0.0.1 but it's very light so I don't think that's actually enabled.

If anyone would be willing to help, I'd really appreciate it. I've spent the better part of two days and my knowledge is limited so I'm pretty stuck. Also, if you need any more information or need me to do anything, I'll gladly be as helpful as I can possibly be. Thank you very much. The fact that mozilla has this support forum is very kool. I never knew about it until today. Thanks again.

When I go to "Tools" / "Plug-Ins" and click on "Check To see If Plugins Are Up To Date" it goes to Mozilla Check Your Plugin Page, but fails to show plugins or checked plugins update status. ( https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_campaign=plugincheck-update ) I am using OS X 10.10.3 / Firefox 37.0.1 / March-14-2015

Tried, re-installing over original, clearing cookies, clearing cache and starting in Safe Mode to no avail. Another ridiculous oversight and there's never any support for when things do go awry. Unfortunately, I have received no professional concern, with a competent cause and cure. none. And I have had and reported this problem since Firefox 35.0.

Need info and a fix, for Months Now! Thanks! Whitebuck
