This is still prevalent and I have had to disable the plugin for shockwave player. Similar was happening with adobe flash player but since the Firefox update it isn't happening as much. Is there a solution to solve this or is it a Adobe issue that they need to fix.? When it hangs or crashes it sometimes takes out downloads. I rolled back to the older dowload box because if I closed the browser it took the downloads out. Downloads don't crash as much with the older download box but with Firefox 20 ( with the new download style) the downloads died quickly with an error message the "file could not be read"

Also, is it okay to enable my add ons now, they were accentuating the problem as well.

I had read that in FF v22 Web RTC (Real Time Connections, PeerConnection and DataChannels) are enabled by default. This is a big no-no for me.

Where can I turn them off, is it possible to do this in one click (as for JavaScript or images)?

Will they bypass disabled in Windows Remote Access service?

Anything else I can do to block peer-to-peer and any remote access to my computer, while reading the Web will remain possible?

Thank you.

I installed Divx and accidentally clicked "please make Bing.com my default browser".

Now I have an issue that every time I open a new tab it defaults to bing.com.

I have uninstalled divx, started firefox in fail safe mode (no plugins or extensions), and I have changed about:config values: browser.newtab.url = about:newtab browser.startup.homepage;about:newtab = about:newtab and the problem still persists!

How do I get back to my normal newtab format?

In my company's internet it is problematic to use https. However firefox always defaults to https connections (e.g. when making a google search from the search toolbar, or when typing an address bar starting with "www"); therefore always bringing up an "This Connection is Untrusted" alert page and making me have to manually go to the address bar and changing the "https" to "http". In Google Chrome and Internet Explorer it is very easy to set the browser to use http instead of https. However, I can't seem to find this option in firefox. Any ideas?

My question is, how do i change the default program opener to vuze ?

Thanks for the support, and keep up the good work, to all the firefox support crew i wish a good day :)

As the previous thread was closed without actual resolution - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/941350?esab=a&s=&r=0&as=s

I managed to solve this on my end by just reinstalling firefox using the localisation of the default dictionary language i wanted from here - http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/

A bit of a shame that the main download page doesnt select the geographically relevant localisation for you and even more so that changing the default language for the in built spell checker is so kak. oh well.

I installed something and now whenever I open a new tab, instead of the defajlt firefox page I see "start.sweetpacks.com". This only happens on Firefox 21.0, not Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. How do I get rid of this? I used MalwareBytes, AdAware, and SuperAntiSpyware, and I still have it. I ran the diagnostic tool SpyHunter4 which came up with a bunch of stuff but I have to pay extra money to remove sweetpacks from my PC. Thanks

This latest upgrade has been awful for a very basic computer user like me. I've used Mozilla happily for years but the amount of time I'm spending trying to put it back to the way I like it is starting to make me reconsider the whole thing. Chrome is looking awfully good right now.

I've already spent hours trying to rid myself of the Yahoo thing that just suddenly appeared as my search engine and now my browser history won't clear. I used to be able to go to show all history and delete. Easy! Now even when the history says it's clear, even when I've closed down all the tabs prior to closing down mozilla (except for my home page Google) When I reopen Mozilla the last four tabs are back again. It should, based on my my prior usage, only open to my home page and if I want to restart at my previous tabs it asks me. Why is this happening?

I'm a very basic computer user and this sudden hijacking of my browser and search engine is actully a bit distressing and frankly I'm getting sick of trying to fix it.

I have a small Linux based pc running Firefox in kiosk mode. The pc is not connected to the Internet and only has acess to a dedicated server under my control, serving a few webpages and a java applet. Suddenly the system started complaining java my java version is outdated messing up the kiosk display.

- how did firefox figure out the java version is outdated if neither the frond end pc nor the back end server have access to the Internet - is there a way to turn off java security checking in one of the firefox config files? The kiosk pc boots from the network, the firefox profile is automatically generated, so I need a way to change this in the config files, not through the GUI as I won't be there every time the kiosk boots.

I'm running Firefox 13.0.1, I know this is old but security isn't an issue as I'm only accessing my own server and updating the firefox version on the PXE image is a pain.
