Hi everyone

This is a weird issue I've been struggling with for a couple days now - Flash objects don't seem to load in Google reader. If I open the original page, they load though.

So I tried these:

  • Tried re-installing the Flash plugin - didn't work
  • I started Firefox in safe-mode - Fixed! - I could view all Flash objects
  • I disabled all my extensions - didn't fix the problem
  • I reset Firefox to the default user settings - didn't fix the problem
  • Tried making a new profile - didn't work either

What else does Safe-mode really do? What am I missing? Any ideas?

Thanks!

Problem with addon, TabUtilities. After closing a tab, the browser always focuses on the right furthest tab REGARDLESS of what I select(or unselect) in the three boxes under Tab Closing in the settings. I even tried changing to different Values in "extensions.tabutils.selectOnClose" in about:config. Nothing seems to have an effect. I am trying to set TabUtilities to focus on the Last Visited Tab after closing a tab. In other words, focus back to the tab that contains the link I opened a new window with. I have tried every setting including the Last Visited Tab with no success. Thanks so much. Using FF4b8 on WinXPProf

I am interested in configuring Firefox for users and locking down certain settings. It appears that the folder referenced in http://mit.edu/~firefox/www/maintainers/autoconfig.html is not present on the Firefox 4 Beta install.

Will Firefox 4 support autoconfig, and if so will updated documentation be posted for that when Firefox 4.0 is released?

After installing the FF 4.0b8 (in parallel with 3.6.1.2) the search field no longer works, tried starting it in safe mode but the same behaviour there.

It works perfectly in 3.6.12 with Google, Wikipedia and IMDB search engines enabled.

Anyone know where this "glitch" is coming from? It's quite annoying as I probably use the Ctrl+K key 100+ times per day ;)

Whenever a google.nl search or results page is opened Firefox freezes. I can still close the window by the close button resize or move the window but the content is totally frozen. Cannot open new tabs, menu options are not accessible, neither by mouse nor keyboard. No problems with maps.google.nl exept when I try to use 3D google earth. I don't have the plugin but see a screen stating I have to download a plugin and than the session freezes again. (Another FF4 session is not affected). It looks like a flash problem? Any suggestions what to do (in a way that I can provide feedback as well?). I didn't reinstall flash yet since it al works fine in ye old FF3.6.

FF 4.0b8 is my default browser and MS Outlook 2003 my default email program. When I open an email containing a link to a website and click on it, no FF window is opened. This problem did not exist with Internet Explorer.

As an alternative solution, I've tried copying the website link from the email, but then I find that it can't be pasted on an open FF window either.

The first tab that is displayed upon starting up Firefox 4.0 Beta 8 is "user.com," a website that I have no recollection of visiting before, much less opting for it to be my start-up page. How did this happen? It doesn't seem to be tied to a specific profile, either, as it loaded consistently between Firefox profiles (although not on Firefox 3).

I have FF4 beta, this started since FF4 beta 7. I work on Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit.

The problem is that I can't see drop down menus unless they have alot of items, nor context menus (like highlighting a text then right-clicking it), auto fill bars don't show the auto fill info entered before .. the menu itself appears, kinda. but it's transparent and the I can't see the items, don't know where to click to select the thing I want.

I haven't got this problem before 4.0b7 .. after I got it, I thought it was one of the plugins, so I disabled them all but still have the problem!

An image describing the problem is here, taken now on this page, I highlighted a text, and right-clicked it: here you can see the menu is somehow appearing, surrounded by the red border, but I can't see it!
