I have 2 NICs in my computer. I want to connect to a server on the second NIC. However, firefox must be only trying to connect thru the first NIC to the internet. When I enter the IP address from firefox (which Windows would route to the second NIC) all I get is a timeout. It will not connect. How do I fix this problem?

For the last 2 days, the print on my amazon.com site has been very tiny and hard to read. I don't have this problem with other sites and when I try other browsers. It happens when I click on an e-mail from Amazon and also when I google it. I deleted my browser history thinking that might help,but it did not. I welcome any suggestions.

I have Firefox 34.0.5 and installed and uninstall Flash Player multiple times. When I go to YouTube all I see is a black window. There are no controls whatsoever. I have disabled adblocking and noscript and no difference. I can not even get the animation to play properly on Adobe Flash About page. The problem is Firefox since Safari has no problem with either of these things. I have tried disabling all addons and that of course made no difference whatsoever.

Shockwave Flash 15.0.0.239 is set to Always Activate. I even tried disabling all of my addons and clearing cache and no difference what soever.

The update option is hidden or removed in the Ubuntu Release Version. I don't quite understand what they are saying on installing or updating FireFox on the Ubuntu site?! I was hoping to receive an easier explanation as to how to either update FireFox to a Mozilla Version or how to install the Original Mozilla FireFox Version!! I am new to Ubuntu and don't quite understand the Linux Lingo! I tried to add an image, but it would not upload my image. Thanks and I look forward to hearing back from someone :^)

When I get my bookmarks the way I want them on my computer and delete the ones I do not want it gets messed up. I have 4 computers on my account and every time I sync it brings up old book marks. I have deleted all book marks from my computer and set up a new sync account then deleted all book marks on my other computers. Then I set up the new sync account on all the computers and still brings up Book marks. There should not be any book marks because I deleted all book marks from all computers before I set up the new account. I have done this 2 times and it they come back. How can I clear all my accounts and start over???????????

Adobe; various websites; and now seemingly Firefox seem to continually confuse and obscure things regarding the two different Adobe Players (Adobe Flash Player AFP and Adobe Shockwave Player ASP). According to this security alert web article ASP is far less secure than AFP which itself isn't great. The article http://krebsonsecurity.com/2014/05/why-you-should-ditch-adobe-shockwave/ indicates:

Mozilla Firefox users should note that the presence of the “Shockwave Flash” plugin listed in the Firefox Add-ons section denotes an installation of Adobe Flash Player plugin — not Adobe Shockwave Player.

==

My Firefox is working, but this confusion of calling things by their proper (or at least a unique name) seems crazy to me. If this is accurate can someone get Firefox to name things correctly, AND if article is accurate let this be a warning to others that they NOT use ASP, but as needed rely on AFP. There are Adobe test pages for each so you want to make sure that AFP succeeds and the other ASP fails to play.

Since the latest update/install of Firefox, it no longer allows navigation via typing in the address bar. Even if I type the whole address and hit enter or click the "go to" arrow, nothing happens. I have to navigate to a website by googling it and following their click-through links.

I'm no n00b - this is clearly a fault with the latest version, or some interaction/default setting that's getting in the way. I'd welcome any ideas.

Firefox help articles on the latest version state: "Web search in the address bar - When you type in the location bar and press Return, Firefox takes you to search results using the search provider selected in the search bar."

Uh, no Firefox. Your address bar takes me precisely nowhere!

Cheers.

I'm using Ubuntu 14.

Ever since the last few days (say, a week) i've been getting messages saying that Flash is outdated, and firefox blocks the plugin, so I have to unblock ("allow") every time I get to a new page. It's no big deal, but it's annoying and, for example, I can't watch movies on my fave movie page... In firefox's Plugin Check page I get an "Up to date" message, but it shows version 11.2.202.418, wich is also the version on Ubuntu's Software Center , and current versione is 11.2.202.425. I've tried this instrucitons https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keep-flash-up-to-date-and-troubleshoot-problems#w_updating-flash to install manually, but can't get to the place where firefox is installed.

I already moved from chrome to firefox because of chrome's repeated malfuntioning, I have nowhere else to go! (pity me).

Thank you all! And sorry for possible spelling/syntactical mistakes, english is not my first language.
