The Firefox plugin checker is reporting "vulnerable - Update Now" for my Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.510.13. and Java(TM) Platform SE 7 U51 plugins.

The 'update now' link takes me to the Java download page which invites me to download the latest Plugin 7.51. but i already have 7.51 installed so the plugin checker is incorrectly displaying "vulnerable - Update Now". I have had 7.51 installed since January 17th and run the plugin checker on a weekly basis so i'm not sure why it has suddenly decided that this is a vulnerable plugin.

I am running Firefox 28.0 on Windows 7

thanks ...

Hello

All my folders with their names and email lists have suddenly reverted to really small font (I can still control font size in emails)

I think I managed this aspect with the theme font and size changer add-on in the past which is still installed but no longer visible in the tool bar.

As others on their website state, this add-on suddenly stopped working for them and became invisible. I've tried ta reinstall but that hasn't worked

The problem now is that the font is so bloody small that I can barely read it.

I just wish Mozilla would work a bit better with add-ons. We really need some of them but they seem to become redundant with every new update. It's really frustrating at the best of times but this is a disaster for me! I need to see emails for my work.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks

Thunderbird 38.0.1 Windows 7.1 Click on "Write". Contacts side bar opens with "All Address Books" as default. It used to default to the LAST USED Address Book. [I've only noticed this new behavior in the last few days.] No matter which address book I select, Write now always opens with "All Address Books". ["All Address Books" displays a combined list of ALL the contacts in ALL the address books]. How do it get it to default to the 'last used' address book please?

I have the latest version of Firefox (18.0 I think?) as well as the Yahoo Toolbar add-on. I have not been able to edit the icons on the Yahoo Toolbar for a long time. When I click on the "setting" button, nothing happens, no drop down box appears. When I click on the "+" button, a new tab opens up that takes me to the yahoo toolbar editing page, however, everything is blank, nothing is displayed. No icons to choose from, and my existing icons are not shown either. I can't change the layout, add/remove, or do anything with it. I've tried to uninstall/reinstall both Firefox and Yahoo Toolbar, I've also tried to install these two on a computer that previously had no Firefox or Yahoo Toolbar. Nothing worked. I'm not sure if this is a Firefox or a Yahoo Toolbar problem, but it is sure annoying! Has anyone else experienced this? What's the fix if there is one? Thank you very much!

After following all the suggestions found by searching video autoplay, Firefox currently still autoplays videos with the sound muted. This is in websites other than those like YouTube, such as news websites and the like. What I REALLY want is to COMPLETELY PREVENT automatic playback of any of these videos, and if necessary, whitelist domains like YouTube to allow autoplay. Is this even feasible?

how can I get the tabs back where they belong beneath the address bar , NOT on top ??? they are on top, which puts the address bar at a variable position depending on how many tab rows exist - makes a moving target for navigating to across my dual 24 inch screens I tried your "solution" using about:config and setting browser.tab.on.top or whatever to false, but that had NO effect Maybe because TabMixPlus is installed? It does allow putting the tabs all the way at the bottom, but I don't like that either. PLEASE, give me the address bar at TOP with tabs under that!!!

Also, I don't want FlashGot to be at the right of the address bar!!!

Until today the options for stopping videos auto playing worked OK, suddenly they don't work at all. I had changed all the settings in about:config - please see screen shot attached - a couple of weeks ago when they suddenly started auto playing and that solved the issue, but now I am back to square one. Even when I have ensured that the autoplay option is changed in the preferences section they are still auto-playing. Any suggestions please as this is driving me crazy!

Thanks in advance for your help. It is much appreciated.

I am running on TB release 60.5.0.

In the TB previous release, TF&SC worked fine for text (font) size control on incoming and outgoing messages. In the latest TB release TF&SC does not support the text (font) size.

The text size is miniscule. I can use the "ctrl +/-". However, this procedure is a drag when TF&SC has worked flawlessly in the previous TB release.

Is it not time for TB to have built-in text/font sizing control?

Your help on this issue would be appreciated.

Regards,

Message filters have always worked well for me, but suddenly I cannot get a simple filter like so many others to work.

I want a combination of From address and Subject to cause an email deletion. Most of my filters work this way.

No matter what part of the Subject I use, I can't get this to work. Yes, I know how to set up a filter. I have many filters and they have always worked. But now this one won't work.

What do I do?

Before I changed internet service providers, I could type my search queries into the url bar and receive search results from Google. After I switched ISPs, my queries typed into the url bar are put into my new ISP's horrible search engine. How do I change it back?

I've already tried going to about:config and changing the value of the keyword.URL preference to "http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=" but that didn't fix my problem.


New information since creation of the post:

My ISP is Optimum. I have opted out of DNS Assistance and still have seen no change.

When my search term is two words or more, I am directed to Google search results. If my search term is only one word, however, I am still directed to Optimum's search results.

I recently got the Firefox 22.0 build 20130514181517 update (at the same time as a Windows 7 update, I might add) and since then the default font sizes on all websites have been enlarged. I have a 17" monitor, but due to the grossly overscaled fonts it seems more like an old 14", and it's quite irritating. To view the websites in approximately the old way they used to look, I have to zoom out twice, but it also means I have to do it on all sites. I also have the habit of accidentally zooming in or out while using my laptop's touchpad, so whenever I ctrl-0 to reset the font, it goes back to the large font, and I need to rezoom it again.

I am primarily trying to figure out if there is a way to reset the font size without using any add-ons.

Thanks
