The Silverlight plugin crashes whenever I try and watch a video on Netflix. I'm using Vista 64-bit, and I'm running the most recent update of Silverlight. This is a persistent problem for me (i.e. I've been unable to watch Netflix in Firefox, including the most recent stable releases).

Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop, Windows 7, Firefox 4. I'm hoping there is a short cut or at least some way to get out of full screen without restarting Firefox. Once I pressed f1 and the task bar came back. But I tried f1 again many times in full screen and I didn't get the task bar back. ( the screen goes dark for a couple of seconds and comes back.)

I figured out how to get out of full screen, by reducing the window size. Is there a short cut to get in and out of full screen?

I am a new developer and I'm trying to learn how cookies work, but I don't know how to view what the actual cookie value is, so that I can check if I did it correctly. I see where you can set the defaults you want and enable or disable cookies, but where can you view the content in FireFox browser? I know in Google Chrome you can see all the cookies and their values in settings, content, cookies, view all. Thanx, Gil

Whenever I stop moving my mouse (while hovered over a Firefox window) Firefox freezes and does nothing until I move the mouse again (or back on a window). It doesnt even load pages or anything, it just freezes, but unfreezes immediatly when the mouse is moved again. It does also seem to semi-unfreeze while typing.

There also seems to be a related problem with Flash, after some time working with Firefox and then opening a Flash element initially does nothing, but interacting (AKA clicking, hover ing does not affect this but actually affects the flash) freezes the browser, but not the sound, minimizing or attempt to close (with multiple tabs open) fixes the freeze.

Apparently pushed the wrong "Download" button. Now instead of my homepage (which I have reset), when I open Firefox the "search.conduit.com" page opens. I used the "about:config" procedure several times but it didn't work. There is nothing listed on "add/remove" that is related. Also scanned with Ad-aware, Super AntiSpyware and Norton 360. How do I clean search.conduit out of my browser?

I frequently get the "Firefox can't find the server at ..." message but in most cases clicking "refresh" gets to the relevant website. Based on limited usage of IE, IE doesn't give the same problems. In attempting to resolve the issue I've deleted and reallowed Firefox through the firewall, tried starting in safe mode, cleared the cache, made suggested additional entries though About:config, etc. all to no avail. Judging from discussion threads this problem appears to be very common but none of the solutions I've tried work. Any suggestions for possible solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

Where does Mozilla Firefox saves the files from add-ons? Don't know if it is from Windows update or from Firefox update, but my add-ons settings keeps on resetting and I lose a lot of data from them because of that. And if I know where Firefox saves those files, then I can make a backup for them.

As stated in question, I've recently started getting the message "SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG" when attempting to access various website intermittently. Sometimes reloading the page fixes it. Sometimes it doesn't. Error is only occurring in Firefox, not other browsers.

There were a couple of posts asking the same thing I am, but no answers to either of the. You used to have that Theme and Font Size Changer but I hear that is not very useful anymore. Is there any other way to increase the text on tool bars and menus? It's just way too small. Text on web pages is fine but I can't hardly read the tool bars and menus unless I really squint. Why would you want to make it so terribly small with no way to adjust it?
