I accidentally had Firefox remember to deny access to let videos go full screen in a particular website. I cannot find where those settings are stored. The accidental selection of having Firefox remember to deny access to let the videos on the page in question to go full screen does seem to be specific to Firefox, since they will go full screen from that page if I use Safari. I tried the solution in the section entitled: "Disable Flash hardware acceleration" on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/flash-video-wont-play-full-screen which seemed to be the closest to what might be helpful in what I could find by searching Firefox help, but that did not work as I described in my feedback for that page: "I have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. I went to the page where I cannot get the video to go full screen, but when I hold down "Ctrl" and click on the video I do not see a context menu that includes "Settings" as an option, instead I only see a box that says "About JW Player 6.8.4616 (Premium edition)". I know that I have to change the settings because I accidentally told it to remember to deny access to full screen for videos on this page, but I cannot figure out how to get to the settings and this solution didi not work." If anyone knows how I can go about to get Firefox to once again allow videos to go full screen from this page, I would really appreciate your help. Thanks.

I keep getting a screen change popping up on my browser, asking me to install a very important update. I know the patch is a scam, as I've check the internet and see others have experienced the same problem. Is there any way I can stop receiving the firefox-patch.js patch request? It comes up very often when I open chicagotribune.com.

Currently on an HP laptop, Win8, printing to a HP Color Laser, no previous problems; all of a sudden, PDF's are printing blank pages. I can see the page fine. Safe mode without any addons has no change. I printed my taxes out and had no problems.

I've used IE (shudder) an been able to print PDF's fine. I have no PDF software itself on the computer, just using the browsers native support. EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING. Searching shows problems loading PDF's, but my problem is printing PDF's. Using version 29 of Firefox. Anyone got any tips or clues how to hunt this down? Really close to introducing my computer to Mr. sledgehammer.

When I visit this site:http://www.apolloarchive.com/apollo_gallery.html I can no longer see the image thumbnails when I click on the image IDs. I contacted the site owner, and he said it worked for FF on his computer, but I'm afraid my javascript isn't working here. I did everything, cleared the cookies, ran Safe Mode, checked options- though i may have goofed. And I'm almost sure javascript is enabled here. I have Win XP. I don't want to check another browser; if the problem is here than it needs fixing. I'm waiting more word from the site owner, but I tried everything he suggested. So what do I do? Do I download another Javascript?

I was lissening to online radio. Firefox needed to update. After the latest update the windows media player plugin dissapeared from the add-on list, while still being installed correct. I reinstalled it, but that didn't work. I replaced/deleted some files in firefox as suggested for similiar problems, but that didn't work either. Now I can't play wmp files anymore on firefox.

I hope u can help me solve this problem.

I use google as startpage. I only use Google and potentially wiki as search engines, yahoo is not even to be found in the list. I have no addons or what ever that I know of that use Yahoo, neither have I installed anything that uses it.

Yet since a few days Yahoo has replaced my standard search engine (google) whenever I type in a search in the top-right textbox.

I've checked all settings and nothing has changed. Google is my standard searchengine still. In the list with search engines, there is no yahoo to be found.

So how the f... is yahoo being used as the search engine when I type something in?

It's even worse. This morning I was behind the PC and performed some google searches. I leave the PC for a few hours, come back and do a search... and suddenly Yahoo is my search engine without me having changed anything in the meantime? WTF?

What is causing it and how can I get rid of the disgusting Yahoo search that I absolutely hate?

Hello. I want to get off of the beta channel but have run into a snag. I went to uninstall FF prior to reinstalling, but there is only a FF 15 listed in my Control Panel and this will not initiate an uninstall. My browser shows that I am on v 17. I am wanting to opt out of the beta as flash is continually crashing. Then it will work for a couple of days, then an update hits and back to the same problems. I'm not sure if I should just do an install as I don't want to lose my settings etc. Thanks very much.

Hi,

I need a support from the technical team of Mozilla Firefox as I am unable to open the email website of Microsoft. I am entering the website address as www.hotmail.com or www.live.com into the search engine and I am getting the error as the secure connection failed.

May I know the reason why I am getting this error on your browser?

Even I tried many times and getting the same issue.

The website is not restricted as I better understand. It is the website which when I am opening to the another browser it is fine.

Please reply me as soon as possible as I am only using the Mozilla Firefox as the browser for my surfing and emailing.

Thanks, Tushant Rajpal

This problem is weirdly specific, I have tried other browsers and firefox is the only thing affected, so its firefox specific. When I first open firefox, firefox itself opens and loads within seconds perfectly fine, I can do things with it offline perfectly fine (like using it to open a file) But when I try to go to any website, it takes ages to load and function normally. It doesnt even matter how many tabs I open, I can load one website, or three, it takes the same amount of time.

Once it has loaded the website(s) it functions completely normally! I can load new websites or pages just fine, and everything works perfectly, until I close firefox and open it again. Its driving me insane because I'm not going to just leave firefox open at all times (This is a gaming PC, I try to not have too many unnecessary programs running in the background)

I have tried several things, I reset firefox, didnt work. I have reset my PC, didnt work. I ran firefox in safe mode...worked! So it must be a add-on or extension, right? ...Nope, turned them all off one by one and every time it didn't work. (I only run uBlock anyway)

So whatever the issue is, has something to do with something safe-mode would prevent/turn off, but not add-on's/extensions.

EDIT: Forgot to also mention, I tried clearing cache/cookies/history as well, so pretty much everything short of a completely clean re-install of firefox with none of my personal data, but hoping to avoid the nuclear option if I can.

When using a mouse I know I can middle click (wheel) and the web-link I am clicking will open in a new tab. I also know I can drag that link to the + sign on the tab bar and it will open. But while using the Keyboard only, when I want to open a webpage link in a new tab, it always opens in a new window, why?

I noticed while searching in Mozilla Support that hitting any box opens in a new tab ( this is the effect I want) why does this not happen on other webpages?

I may be answering my own question here but could it be the one 'NewsNow' website that is causing my problem?

I want the latest STABLE version of Firefox. I'm not interested in BETA versions. But, Mozilla is doing a good job of hiding the latest stable version and forcing customers into its ever-changing unstable Beta system. Can anyone tell me which version of Firefox is the newest STABLE version; and where can I find it? Thank you for your assistance!
