I use a 2011 MacBook Pro w/ OS X Lion v. 10.7.3.

Every time I start Firefox, I first have to click "open" on a pop up warning box that says:

Firefox is an app you downloaded from the internet. Are you sure you want to open this app?

This is really annoying & there's no option to stop asking me this. Does anyone else get this obnoxious pop up & have you figured out a way to make it stop?

I need to add a new mime_type (application/f4m+xml) and make its handler the mozilla flash plugin. I used to use the mime-edit add-on to do this, but it no longer works. I can add an association for a new extension to an external program, but how do I add an association for the flash plugin?

Long time IE user. Decided to try Firefox for about 3rd time in as many years. When I left click on mp3 or wmv file in any of the usenet groups using IE 8 it immediately begins to play while it is downloading. Whenever I do same in Firefox it wants to download the entire file instead of playing it. If a wmv file is 700 megs I may only want to sample it, not be forced to download the entire file. All my preferences and options are correctly set. In IE8 all wmv and mp3 files will stream using WMP. This was a problem in previous attempts to use Firefox and why each time I went back to IE8. IE8 is getting dated. I want to use Firefox. But if I am forced to download every file before viewing it I will be forced back to IE8 again.

HELP!!

How do I add my toolbar back with my favorites folder up there? I updated Firefox and now I don't have a toolbar with my Favorites anymore on top. There isn't anything on Firefox that tells me how to add this. I tried to restore but that goes nowhere. Updates are great unless you lose previous functions.

Dear Sir/Madam:

I use Firefox (Version 10.0.2) on a Mac OS X (Version 10.6.8).

Now, when I try to log onto my Google account for Google Groups, I continue to get to the page with the following message:

"This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to accounts.google.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

         Normally, when you try to connect securely,

sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

         What Should I Do?
         
           If you usually connect to

this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

         [Get me out of here!] Button        
               
         Technical Details
         accounts.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate will not be valid until 2011-07-20 8:00 PM. The current time is 2011-03-02 12:20 AM.

(Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)"

There are two problems here: 1.) The two times given are all past; 2.) I don' have the "I Understand the Risks" option.

I have used Firefox for a long time and got the problem only today.

What can I possibly do?

Thank you!

There is a red window that pops up saying certain sites are "attack" sites, and it is super annoying. Supposedly it is another one of Google's brainiac schemes called "safe browsing". I don't want it, it's blocking some of my favourite sites but I can't seem to get rid of it. How do I disable/remove/delete the bleeping thing?
