Using a first generation Canadian Motorola Xoom, rooted (?) or unlocked and installed ICS 4.0.4 IMM76

Normal Firefox (not the Beta) is installed and working just fine on my Xoom. On the last update (v 14.0) this odd thing happened: Firefox no longer figures in the list of installed apps on the Google Play store when viewed from the tablet. It is displayed in the ALL section as "Installed" with a notice : "Your device isn't compatible with this version". Should I be worried? At this time, I only use Firefox to visit Zap2it in conjunction with AdBlock Plus as an improvised Personal TvListing App. But I would still hate to loose my own fake App. Thoughts?

How do I get Flash to play in Firefox 14.0 on Android?

I have plugins enabled in Firefox 14.0 on my Motorola Atrix and also have Adobe Flash Player 11.1.111.10 installed, but Flash doesn't load in Firefox. Instead, I get the error message: "A plugin is needed to display this content." Switching my plugin setting to "Tap to play" instead of Enabled doesn't solve the problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled both Flash and Firefox, but that didn't solve the problem either. I can, however, get Flash to load for the same website in Dolphin HD. The website I have been trying today is http://www.greatamericanrestaurants.com/Carlyle/.

I have a website; www.designed4submariners.com. On several pages, I have created links to images which are located in a upload file folder. Each time I click on one of those links on the active website (using Firefox as browser), a dialog box appears asking me: What should Firefox do with this file? Beneath the question is a pull down menu which has "TextEdit (defualt)" selected next to a radio button. The image file will open in a browser window when I select Firefox from that pull down menu. I can not tell Firefox to open all similar files using Firefox. How can I resolve this issue as I must go through the same process each time I attempt to open one of those links.

Hello, how to disable the long horizontal Mozilla yellow strip, popping up and reminding us constantly to "update a plugin", which we don't want to update.

Disabling the ones below:

1/ plugins.update.notify User;true

2/ plugin.scan.plid.all;true

3/ dom.ipc.plugins.enabled;false

either does not help or disables completely Flash! What else to do with this ultra annoying "Update plugins" reminder, as we want to keep the older version 10 of Flash? We just do not want Flash v. 11 - it takes huge amount of CPU, while Version 10 works fine for all 'you tube" and "etc"... videos. No need for V.11. (Let us worry about viruses and security) But here it comes the so annoying Mozilla reminder to upgrade to Flash Version 11 - the yellow strip also takes screen space under the address bar. Please help. Very annoying - almost ready to switch to other browsers if this issue is not resolve. Other than that, the Mozilla 14 is great. Congratulations to all designing it. Thanks in advance. Bob

On my Samsung SIII, after updating FireFox to 14.0, I cannot enter URL's OR search text in the "Enter search or address" bar. If I type a search term and and then select Google search (for example), the "Enter Search or address" hint stays in the bar, the page goes blank and the animation to the left of its spins indefinitely. The same applies to typing an URL and the using the "Go" key on the keyboard, the bar shows the hint, blank page and endlessly spinning icon... Tried uninstalling, including adblock and reinstalling (without any add-ons) but same results. The version before this was fine....

I'm using Stylish addon for Firefox with a default dark css. I also have changed the default Window colors in Windows registry. This has changed the about:blank page's color to a dark one. But when I open a link on a new tab, before the page loads, Firefox is showing a blank page with white background. I wonder how can I change this white color to a different one.

Hey there, I just found out that you can make the full path of plugins visible in about:config, this is helpful to get rid of some annoying plugins I don't want or need. Now I wonder, if there also is a way to enable this for extensions? I know the "good" extensions install themselves in the profile folder, but the sinister ones (that I didn't want installed in the first way) are not located there. One of the extensions would be "Browsing Protection 1.10". I know i can disable it, but I want it deleted, no idea where to find the correct files though.
