I've updated to Firefox 11 and now I can't open online pdf's. This has happened on more than 1 computer, using both OS 10.6.8 and OS 7.0 and on more than one website. I tried unchecking "block pop-ups" under preferences but that didn't help. When I use Safari to open the same pdf's, they open up fine. Everything worked fine with my Firefox until I did the upgrade.

I'd prefer to continue to use Firefox, but I can't figure out the root of the problem.

Has anyone else had this happen as well?

After clicking on a youtube video it will play for 3-5 seconds. Then the video will refresh (not the entire site). The gear that allows you to change quality will still be there but when I click it all of the quality options disappear. Then the video plays fine but I'm stuck watching it in 480p. It doesn't happen on chrome or even when I play a youtube video in a private window! This started happening about a week ago and it's getting really annoying watching 480p videos and listening to the first 3-5 seconds of every video twice.

While I am browsing on a site I find that Yahoo will suddenly pop up without having been requested to do so. It also happens when I go from one page of a given site to another. This happens on most sites and I am about to "ditch" Firefox, since it does not occur when I use Safari.

Hi all; apologies for the long post.

All of the major browsers recently dumped applets or intend to, including Firefox. I have spent the last five years developing a ranking engine web site and software based around a 64,839 line Applet that needs to pass customised ranking criteria back to the server once the user has finished modifying the preset criteria to their needs (the ranking criteria is stored as graphs).

Web Start is simply not going to do the job and its too big a project to start from scratch and rebuild it in something else. The whole project, including test data SQL code is over 234,000 lines of code and was due to be launched in March next year. Seriously, they could not have picked a worse time to dump Applets.

The following is a bit of an overview of the engine. Please; to any Mozilla staff reading this, this engine is well worth supporting...

Even if just one browser supported Applets, I could convince people to switch browsers. This technology will change the web and computing like no other, and will attract a lot of users, so I would please ask that Mozilla consider reinstating the option of running Applets. The web site is only a product ranking engine for retail products at present, but will expand into other areas at a latter date. It can capture a knowledgeable expert's ranking knowledge, for virtually any retail product, and then make it available for anyone to use at the click of a button.

The engine is based on an abstract theory for how the human brain uses neural networks to rank things for us. The engine is capable of ranking pretty much anything the human brain can rank. Like the human brain, it is capable of ranking entities that have absolutely no attributes in common within the ranking criteria (I'm not really sure what that can be used for yet). It can also use any attribute, that the brain uses to rank things, for which we have no formal system of measurements. This is possible through the use of graphs to capture, edit and store the ranking criteria. Essentially, if an entity type has describable attributes, then it can be ranked by this engine.

If the user is always willing to accept the highest ranked entity, then it can be used to capture a large number of decision processes which use ranking of a set of options, and which do not make use of the imagination. It can then accurately emulate that decision process. This technology will allow Robotics, AI and Software Agents to make a large number of decisions the way that we do.

This theory is part of a wider theory for how the human brain generates most all emotions and feelings, including those for interactions and the Ego, using neural networks. This theory was developed over a period of 17 years. The ranking engine was merely a byproduct of this work.

This is no pie in the sky theory, the engine has been fully functional for over two years, and is currently ranking 1225 digital cameras using 89 attributes. It is only the background administration of the web site that needs finishing. I also have an Australian Provisional Patent "METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR RANKING ENTITIES - AU2016900828" (http://www.ipaustralia.com.au/applicant/wegner-ronald-robert/patents/AU2016900828/). My patent attorney firm, Spruson & Ferguson based in Sydney Australia, would never allow a hoax to tarnish their reputation.

If anyone at Mozilla is reading this, please consider keeping the option of Applets!

Kind Regards, Robbie Wegner

I want to move FF to a new machine. I'd like everything moved so that the new installation looks and acts exactly like the old one. From reading the KB and the forum, I see 3 possible ways: (1)MozBackup, (2)Firefox's Synch feature and (3)Manually backing up and restoring my FF Profile.

Which would be best?

using Firefox 57.0 Mac OS 10.11.6 El Capitan

I subscribe to a website that uses primarily HTML5 content. ("The vast majority of our cards do not require Flash: they use HTML5 and/or video formats instead") This will not play on my computer. Researching this I found an extension titled HTML5 Video Everywhere ( developer: lejenome) and installed. It is listed in the Extensions tab and enabled. I have quit and re-opened Firefox several times. Video content from this website still does not play. This content DID play prior to the v.57 update on Nov. 15. What is wrong??????????

Firefox Sync on my laptop does not work when my laptop is connected to my home network, but e.g. if I'm at my office.

The internet connection at my home is fine, I can surf the web with that very Firefox on both IPv4 and IPv6, DNS etc. is also working. Logging in to accounts.firefox.com also works, as does connecting Firefox to the Sync account. Only the process of syncing itself fails. On my desktop computer at home, I have exactly the same problems. When I open https://sync-209-us-west-2.sync.services.mozilla.com/ in a browser tab, I see a confirmation message that sync runs on that server, so apparently the network path between my computer and that server is free.

Upon investigation with Wireshark, I see the successful TLS handshake, then some packets from the client that are not answered and after some time the server closes the connection (Encrypted Alert). Apparently, no content is transferred between client and server. I attach a screenshot of how Wireshark sees the conversation between server and client (The image upload here didn't work so I put it on the web: http://ibin.co/1zXABHKdj5mA).

To exclude a possible misconfiguration or bad add-on, I created a clean new Firefox profile and connected it to my Firefox account, but this shows exactly the same problems.

Fun fact: Firefox on my Android phone does sync in my home network.


Below, I will link two log files, one successful sync (office network) and one failed sync (home network): Sync @ office: http://pastebin.com/rZmfrbdL Sync @ home: http://pastebin.com/a3KUCevJ
