English needs no qualification and the clue is in the name - English. To suggest that it is not related specifically to the place of origin and is more generic would be as arrogant as to suggest the words "the states" by default relates solely or primarily to the USA - other countries have states apart from the USA.

Moreover there is no such language as "British".

It's very complimentary that the USA and others has adopted the English language (even if they cannot quite use if correctly) but to suggest that it is not related to England just demonstrates ignorance of both History and Geography (the United Kingdom is not the same as Britain or Great Britain).

Mozilla should do more research!

An older version of Adobe Flash (ver 21.0.0.242) is causing havoc with the latest version of FireFox (ver 47.0.1). I have gone to the Adobe web site and downloaded the installer file for both Adobe Flash and Adobe Reader (also outdated). Before installing these files, I right click on the file and select Properties>Unblock to install them. I also suspend my Anti-virus software to give me enough time to install the files. However, when I attempt to install the files, the Adobe installer gives me the error of "Connection Error" and fails to install the plugins. In the past, the workaround to this problem was going to Adobe's web page " http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html" and downloading a different installation file of the same Adobe Flash version. However, Adobe has discontinued using this page to download a different installer and instead, redirects you to their download page to download the same version that doesn't work. Workaround searches on the web all tend to send you back to the Adobe Flash installer page and right back into an endless loop.

There has to be a simpler way of doing this installation process. Adobe doesn't seem to accept email support questions for their free software and other than the workaround listed above, I have not yet found any solution via internet searches. I'm having this issue on both my Windows Server and all my computers, even though Adobe is detecting the proper OS and downloading the proper file.

How can I install these plugins so that FireFox has the latest versions?

Hi Folks,

I have a quite unusual issue with Nightly build 15.0a1 (x64) on Windows x64. I can not place the button to cancel loading a webpage right beside the reload page button - everywhere else it is possible to place it, but not at this specific location. If I do so, it becomes visible in the customize wizard but not in normal view. In normal view it is only visible when placed on other locations.

Firefox will NOT start, deleting and reinstalling will start as last step but once Firefox is closed it will NOT restart.

Both browsers (Firefox 21 & IE) installed on my 64-bit Widows XP desktop refuse to start either from clicking the desktop icon, the start bar menu, or the executables themselves. What does happen is that all icons disappear from the screen for some 15-30 seconds, then the icons are returned to the screen, and the last informative message displayed from the system tray at start up is repeated.

Deleting Firefox and reinstalling will start the browser as the last step, but when the new copy is closed it will not start. Also just rerunning the installation download without deleting Firefox will "Upgrade" and start as a last step but when the new copy is closed it can not be restarted. Running restore on the new copy has on apparent effect on the ultimate inability to restart after closing.

I only tried the IE browser after being unable to start Firefox (its ordinarily only used by the MS update procedure) and have not investigated either reinstalling or repairing it.

Sometimes after using the master password to access an account during a given firefox session I would like to "revoke" this ability for automatic access (i.e. require typing the master password again) without having to end the current session and restart firefox.

While it is nice to only have to type the master password once per session, there are times when after starting some action I would like to leave the browser unattended for a short time but prevent others from accessing sensitive information at other sites if they do not know my master password. Note this is not the same as "locking the browser." Presently the only way I know to force this is to kill the current session and restart the browser but this is not very satisfactory if I actually want to stay connected (authorized) at a particular site. I would hope that adding a button on the security tab to "require master password for current session" would be a simple fix to implement? Thank you for your attention.

I disabled both of the Firefox Add-Ons I use (NoScript 2.1.0.1 & Ad Block Plus 1.3.6) and rebooted the machines, but that had no effect. This problem has been repeated on multiple PCs, running XP Pro (sp3), Vista Business (sp2) & Server 2003 (sp2), right after upgrading to Firefox 4, so the problem is definitely related to Firefox 4.

For example: I have 3 tabs open. I have tab 1 selected, I switch to tab 3 and proceed to type (Log in details for example) When typing it out, the information I enter types out on tab 1, rather than 3, sometimes I don't check and press enter (Causing it to enter on tab 1, which could cause me to show my password on another site)

I have to switch between tabs like 3-4 times in order to sort the priority out.

We have run into what seems like a serious closure bug in Firefox 22.0.

The simple following code executes fine in IE and chrome etc. but fails in a very scary way in FireFox - it thinks the function is undefined !!!

if (true) {

   test();
   function test()  {
       alert("success")
   }

}

If the code is executed outside of the if statement (or if just the function definition is moved outside the if statement) everything is ok.

The same error occurs (not defined) inside other closures like do .. while etc.

We are scared. What did we miss?
