Adobe Flash Player works well in Internet Explorer but I cannot download & install it in FireFox. I always get the error message "An error has occurred in the script on this page. Line:883 Char: 37217 Error: error in loading DLL Code:0 URL:Http://127.0.0.1:53437/App/_js/main-merge.js Do you want to continue running running scripts on this page? Yes/No" Selecting either yes or no makes no difference and the error never changes. Closing the error results in a message from Adobe stating that it was unable to install the program. Their download version is now 12.0. Adobe Reader 10 downloaded & installed fine but Flash Player just won't do it.

I can't open anything in my Downloads list. I've tried resetting firefox and I've also tried everything in your article "What to do if you can't download or save files" but nothing helps. I tried to upgrade to the latest firefox to see if this helps but once I've hit the Download button, 1 minute later it appears in my downloads list and... same issue... I can't open it to run it! It's like it's crashed, because no amount of clicking on a download will activate anything. It seems like the Downloads list is dead! Also, (and I think this is linked), I cannot save web pages. I go though the motions and it looks like it's doing the right thing but the pages don't save - they just disappear into the ether! I'm on Windows Vista and have been downloading things happily for years, but suddenly this problem has occured and I've run out of ideas now... Please help!

Is there a safe and legitimate way to download Firefox on Android without using Google Play or signing into the phone with a Google account? I tried to navigate to the official download page but the only option I can find is to use Google Play which requires sign in. Searching online just leads to alternative app stores and sketchy apk files that I'm not so sure if I can trust.

The main use of the PC in my living room is as a media center. My GUI (Plex) runs in the browser and plays videos with VLC via a custom addon. Currently it is also used for browsing from time to time and I need to keep that part of it secure. As Mozilla is about to break all my addons as well as force me onto 64 bit, I've no choice but to stop updating Firefox on that PC.

I found a old post (3 years old) about running two different versions of Firefox at the same time. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/974208

Is it still possible to do this? Does the same methods still work?

I want to freeze my current 32 bit Firefox at v54.0.1 and use it only for local content. (I've already disabled updates on it)

Then I want to then install a second 64 bit Firefox v55, use it for internet, and allow it to update normally.

If this isn't possible I'll just have to switch to a different browser.

How Can I set up Thunderbird for multiple email addresses

I am using Eudora 7 to handle 6 email accounts on a Windows XP SP3 machine. I want to install Thunderbird on the same machine and import the email addresses. I have Eudora setup to store the data files for each email address in a different data directory. This allows me to have a different icon on the desktop for each email account. Clicking on an icon starts Eudora with the email address data stored in a specific directory.

What I don't know is how to have Thunderbird import the different email addresses from Eudora to Thunderbird and how to keep the individual email address data separate in Thunderbird.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have read too many misleading and uniformed statements about installing and enabling Flash Player in Firefox. However after reading way too many comments one little tidbit made as an afterthought by a respondent GOT MY ATTENTION. it said, " be sure Firefox is closed [as well as IE]. Everyone knows to down load and install one has Firefox OPEN because you go to the arrow and click on the executable. WRONG. You must close Firefox and go find the executable somewhere in your download folder and execute it from explorer. The Voila it all works fine and Shockwave shows up in your Add-ons ready for action. Hope this helps all.

Hi, I'm getting an error "The program can't start because mozglue.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem." when launching Firefox. Firefox was working last night. I have Windows 7.

I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it from latest version from Mozilla website but got same error when I launched Firefox again. I have tried reinstalling Firefox about 4 times but this did not help to fix the issue.

Would it help fix the issue if someone provides me a copy of mozglue.dll to place in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\ on my computer?

Please help. Thanks.

Regards, Andrew


Request for information added here where it will be seen

Hi, there seem to be a couple of other users affected by this reading this thread (judging by 30 users clicking "I have this problem too").

It would be helpful if you could chime in as well & report what antivirus software (& sandboxing software, if any?) you are using on your system. Also if you take a look into your Firefox program folder: Is the mozglue.dll file actually missing there?

Firefox program folder is in one of these locations:
Windows 32-bit users: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
Windows 64-bit users: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox

Hi, I downloaded Thunderbird Portable for Android onto my Samsung Tablet successfully. However, when I go to the Downloads folder and tap the exe file I get a message which says: "Unable to find a program to install this app". I have already allowed installation from unknown sources under the security setting, so that isn't the problem.

Can anyone help please? Many thanks.
