Why isnt there a simple support contact form or something, I am trying to help to report a broken download link from your main website and I have to navigate through 50 freaking pages just to get to a contact us form that has to do with reporting broken links of mozilla download..

Mozilla ESR version 38.6 for Windows is broken, it sends the download to 38.5.1.exe....

I was given a great answer that resolved my issue with Flash Player for Firefox. I then clicked the tab named 'mark it as solved'.

The error message is:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ An Error Occurred

Oh, no! It looks like an unexpected error occurred. We've already notified the site administrators. Please try again now, or in a few minutes. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I tried many times and the error does not go away. Is there a fix in the works for this?

Thank you and also thank you to all that have replied to my other questions. I am new to Firefox and I find that the support answers are actually great. I prefer Firefox now over other browsers. But, as I come up against errors or uncertanties, I like the fact that I can ask questions in a simple manner...unlike other web browser support. Great job.

I've been having major problems with cursor control by mouse wheel and keyboard on the Ubuntu install. I've improved it by alterations in about:config, but it's still not right.

I have this install on Windoze Vista that works perfectly, through no fault of my own, just as installed.

Can I simply copy the file from the Windows Vista install to the Ubuntu install to fix it?

If so, what is the file name (about:config ?), and where is it located?

Thanks!

Can't upgrade Forefox / Privacy Matters

This sounds Dostoevskian, but read on. This is informational for those who are wary and abused Firefox users.

It's Free - Firefox. That means you are on your own to get it going and keep it going. Mozilla WILL NOT HELP YOU or provide any competent tech support. You'll be referred to the forums where, many times, you will be run in circles and nonplussed.

This version I have, will not upgrade. 1. Cannot install addon - upgrade to current version 2. Go to upgrade download page. 3. Already at current version. 4. Try to download most recent version. 5. Already at current version.

All I wanted to do was keep Blur current. No dice. Went like this: 1. Cannot install addon - upgrade to current version 2. Go to upgrade download page. 3. Already at current version. 4. Try to download most recent version. 5. Already at current version.

Fortunately, the excellent tech support techs at Abine/Blur took pity and assisted me. So much so, I felt guilty for not contributing and contributed - to Abine, not Mozilla. So I have an older version of Firefox running just fine. With addons.

Upgrade nags are too intrusive and are accompanied by lies as to why you must upgrade. What they are really hoping for, is to scare you into upgrading to a PAID version of Firefox. You needn't upgrade at all, as a matter of fact, if you are willing to do a little digging and nagging yourself.

Forget tech support. There is none. Nada. Doesn't exist. You'll be on your own in the forums looking for answers. Mozilla claims to have tech support ? It's a lie - and a free-for-all.

Addons have no support. The developers all hide because there are issues with all the addons and the developers are sick and tired of hearing from us Little People. Period. End of Story. DO NOT send addon developers money ! It begets you NOTHING.

The forums, for Mozilla, are 'Free'. Staffed by volunteers who save Mozilla millions of dollars a year in staffing costs. How anyone can get suckered in such a situation is beyond me. What you get in those forums may or may not be true, may or may not work. Take your chances. It seems to be an ego-trip for the "support ENGINEERS", so take your chances. Most times you lose...

Mozilla's relationship(s) with Privacy Busters and Data Miners is murky at best. It will only get more incestuous than it already is. Most other sites have totally prostituted your personal information for pennies. That's all your private life is worth to the data miners - pennies. They buy and sell profiles like yours by the millions. For a few cents each. Many such places will include your credit card number, expiration date and security code - for a few more pennies...

DO NOT give your primary Email address to Mozilla, or any other Free software provider. Make up an Email address for 'throwaway' uses. I have Email accounts associated with Email addresses I provide to places like Mozilla. SPAM Tsunami. Flood. Totally overwhelmed. Today, 963 Spams in 24 hours - to my Spam Trap Email account. That address was only ever given to sites that merely wanted to have it for "informational purposes" and "notifications". Problem is, I give one Email address per site that just HAS to have one or you can't surf. No Emails from that site ! BUT a flood of Spam from 3rd parties ! AND I know EXACTLY where they got my Email address. Handy, huh ?

Terms of service disclosures protect you from UTTERLY NOTHING !!! Again, Terms of service disclosures protect you from UTTERLY NOTHING !!! Used to be a merchant would protect your privacy because you could go elsewhere. Nowadays they're just selling everything you disclose. How do you think a concise history of your auto's maintenance ever made it to Carfax, even though you used 16 different shops ? At shops like that, I simply write in large letters across the service contract, "No disclosure of personal info. Rights waived by service provider." That means I haul their asses into court for a civil action -- and win -- if they sell my info. If the shop accepts the work after you wrote that across the service contract, it is a legally binding contract. NOT ONE shop ever refused to fix my car ! How do I know who it was who snitched out my personal info ? My personal information had unique identifiers for whom I disclosed it to. The unique identifiers are easy to make up... Jr., Sr, III, etc...

No response solicited...

I am trying to log into the MozillaZine forums using my previously register user name and password. It is refused saying that my user name is not valid and to contact an administrator. No indication on how to do that.

If I try to register again, I'm told that my email address is already in use and the registration returns me to the login page.

If you try to use the lost password option to get something, it asks for the user name again and errors out.

How or who can get this fixed?

There was some chatter about surfvox from May to June as a browser hijack, it's gone way beyond that on 09/28/14. Once infected, it wouldn't let me get to self help sites to fix the problem. It would also prevent the use of system tools to clean up the problem.

I had to go back to the Vista install disc to get to a restore point. It seems to be gone now. Surfvox seems to be much nastier now than a few months ago.

This is a reply to jscher2000 who was helping and asked for a link and the content I was missing.

Above is a link to an editorial on the ozone site where after you click on "columns and features" you have a list of articles. At the end of each article people write in their comments and feedback similar to a blog.

At the end of the above article when you open the link I cannot view any of the usual comments or feedback from other fans like I used to. I do remember that I think people had to "sign in thru Yahoo or Facebook" to post their comments. I'm not concerned about signing in. I just want to be able to view peoples' remarks and comments.

I only recently have not been able to view and this apparently happened when I did something (can't even remember) to rid myself of the constant ads on the sides of the page. It says advertisements but whatever I did, there are none anymore, which as far as I'm concerned is a good thing, but I DO want to be able to see the blog or reader comments and remarks that are sent in.

Appreciate any help.

Sometimes I'm logged into my yahoo email for just a few seconds and am getting a session expired notice. I've run Malwarebytes to look for malware, but it came up empty. Never had this problem prior to upgrading to Firefox 31.0.

I have not tried other browsers. I don't like either IE or Chrome.

Any ideas what to do?

Thanks.
