Tried updating flash player, clearing cache and disabling hardware acceleration and still does not work. This was also happening before I updated to the new BETA version of Firefox. When I try using IE9 or Chrome everything works fine. Firefox was my primary browser, then one day for some reason it just stopped playing embedded videos and flash

How do I get Flash to play in Firefox 14.0 on Android?

I have plugins enabled in Firefox 14.0 on my Motorola Atrix and also have Adobe Flash Player 11.1.111.10 installed, but Flash doesn't load in Firefox. Instead, I get the error message: "A plugin is needed to display this content." Switching my plugin setting to "Tap to play" instead of Enabled doesn't solve the problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled both Flash and Firefox, but that didn't solve the problem either. I can, however, get Flash to load for the same website in Dolphin HD. The website I have been trying today is http://www.greatamericanrestaurants.com/Carlyle/.

Hi All, I just installed Firefox for Android and I like it a lot. However, I was wondering how would I get Firefox to call phone numbers or open up Google Map when I browse webpages that have phone numbers or addresses in them? in the default built in browser, I can just tap on the phone number or the address and it would automatically go to the dial screen or G-maps for me. Thanks a lot for your help! John

My tabs in Firefox are below the orange button, but above my address bar, I'd like them to be right next to my orange button at the top. Is there a way to fix this? It was like this before.

I have picture proof of both.

I have a website; www.designed4submariners.com. On several pages, I have created links to images which are located in a upload file folder. Each time I click on one of those links on the active website (using Firefox as browser), a dialog box appears asking me: What should Firefox do with this file? Beneath the question is a pull down menu which has "TextEdit (defualt)" selected next to a radio button. The image file will open in a browser window when I select Firefox from that pull down menu. I can not tell Firefox to open all similar files using Firefox. How can I resolve this issue as I must go through the same process each time I attempt to open one of those links.

Hello, how to disable the long horizontal Mozilla yellow strip, popping up and reminding us constantly to "update a plugin", which we don't want to update.

Disabling the ones below:

1/ plugins.update.notify User;true

2/ plugin.scan.plid.all;true

3/ dom.ipc.plugins.enabled;false

either does not help or disables completely Flash! What else to do with this ultra annoying "Update plugins" reminder, as we want to keep the older version 10 of Flash? We just do not want Flash v. 11 - it takes huge amount of CPU, while Version 10 works fine for all 'you tube" and "etc"... videos. No need for V.11. (Let us worry about viruses and security) But here it comes the so annoying Mozilla reminder to upgrade to Flash Version 11 - the yellow strip also takes screen space under the address bar. Please help. Very annoying - almost ready to switch to other browsers if this issue is not resolve. Other than that, the Mozilla 14 is great. Congratulations to all designing it. Thanks in advance. Bob

On my Samsung SIII, after updating FireFox to 14.0, I cannot enter URL's OR search text in the "Enter search or address" bar. If I type a search term and and then select Google search (for example), the "Enter Search or address" hint stays in the bar, the page goes blank and the animation to the left of its spins indefinitely. The same applies to typing an URL and the using the "Go" key on the keyboard, the bar shows the hint, blank page and endlessly spinning icon... Tried uninstalling, including adblock and reinstalling (without any add-ons) but same results. The version before this was fine....

I'm using Stylish addon for Firefox with a default dark css. I also have changed the default Window colors in Windows registry. This has changed the about:blank page's color to a dark one. But when I open a link on a new tab, before the page loads, Firefox is showing a blank page with white background. I wonder how can I change this white color to a different one.

I have a lenovo Thinkpad Convertible tablet. In the past I've been able to get it were the Windows TIP pops up when I click on a text input field. This function no longer works, I have a new computer, and whatever change I'd done to my old computer is not readily apparent. Any help in getting text input fields to pop up the TIP automatically would be great. Until then, in tablet mode, I have to use my computer with IE or keep the TIP at the taskbar to click on, but that's a lot of movement and rather annoying.

There are many differences in the newer version, but most noteworthy is the total lack of an ability to.copy information. One cannot.long click on a link and choose to copy said link. One cannot click on the URL bar and see the URl of the active page - rather, one is asked to input search terms. One cannot long click on a bit of text within a webpage and have the option to select and.copy that text.

My questions are thus:

1. How can one enable such features on the latest version of FFox Android (14.0)?

2. If this is not possible, where can one obtain earlier versions of the browser?
