My Yahoo email was working fine until a week ago. Now every email I try to send or reply to I get a message " Unable to send.message. If you are sending a link, try adding some text to it. This helps us to fight spam" This happens even when I'm not sending a link!

I try adding more and more text, no results. My email is fine in Explorer and Chrome. Spent time with Yahoo support, diagnostics, they say not their problem.

Cleared the cache, no results.

As of today, after firefox grabbed the 38.0.1 update, it always crashes when I open up gmail. Presumably this is on the GoogleTalkPlugin. Independently of this, firefox also always crashes when trying to play any Vimeo video or SoundCloud audio. This has been going on since 37.x; I have been using firefox in a crippled mode by just avoiding webpages that have Vimeo or SoundCloud embedded (although that itself is an annoyance). With gmail unusable though, I am dead in the water.

Here are the last couple of crash report ids: bp-578d7064-e126-4413-8e9f-82d3a2150519 05/19/2015 11:08 AM bp-66d56b45-c6db-4b97-a1d5-a28832150429 04/29/2015 11:24 AM

Starting firefox in safe mode causes the same crash. Last few log lines in the console are:

(firefox:27889): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: gst_plugin_feature_get_name: assertion `GST_IS_PLUGIN_FEATURE (feature)' failed [NPAPI 27954] ###!!! ABORT: Aborting on channel error.: file /builds/slave/rel-m-rel-l64_bld-000000000000/build/ipc/glue/MessageChannel.cpp, line 1584 [NPAPI 27954] ###!!! ABORT: Aborting on channel error.: file /builds/slave/rel-m-rel-l64_bld-000000000000/build/ipc/glue/MessageChannel.cpp, line 1584

Please let me know if you need more information.

I sure would like to solve this. I was using Safari on my 2008 Mac and then it became outdated on some websites so I switched to Firefox. I am using a wireless connection supplied by the RV park that we are in with a password. I must use Safari to log in then I can use Firefox once that I am connected. (Firefox 38.0.1). Is there some way to disable whatever security line is causing this problem. I also use Firefox on a windows7 laptop from time to time with no problems. So far this is the only problem that I have found since installing Firefox on the Mac.

When I click on options, the options page shows, but I cannot change anything. I first noticed when I tried to change my home page by adding a tab and the change did not take effect. Today when I brought up the Options page I noticed that I could not change anything and could not go to any of the tabs on the Options page other than General. No amount of clicking on the page did anything. I am using Windows 8.1 and have successfully used Firefox for years.

Please fix or advise if there's a setting I can tweak to get this feature back.

Thank you.

Every time I have more than 3 tabs open at a time firefox crashes, I'm pretty sure it has something to do with norton toolbar but I don't want to disable it. I have tried everything except recreating the problem in safe mode mainly do to the fact I wanted to know if a fix already existed for norton toolbar because I knew of compatibility issues in the past with firefox, if norton is not causing the problem I would have no other fix except to use another browser.

Firefox was just updated to 37.0.2, however, this problem existed before the update. When I try to "copy and paste" from one webpage to another, I'm able to right click and "copy" but when I try to "paste" to another page, I get a menu that says "Save Page As," "Select menu," etc., but no "paste."

I also cannot click on the "Help" button at the top of Firefox. All of the other buttons work, except this one. The only way I can get it to work is open "Customize," then close it, and the "Help" menu then works.

Anyone have any idea how to correct these problems? Thanks for the replies!
