I'm on a Virgin Mobile Kyocera Rise, 4.0.4, latest beta release of FF and no Vimeo videos will play. When embedded on a site like http://brehmlab.com, I'm told a plugin is needed and on Vimeo.com I'm told flat out that my device isn't supported. Other online videos work in FF and Vimeo videos work in my default browser and others. Sounds like a Vimeo issue though, right?

I recently ran into this problem after cleaning up my Windows 7 notification icons, which, required the deletion of 2 Registry Keys: IconStreams and PastIconsStream. This did a great job of clearing out the old icons, however, I ended up with this side effect!

I found this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/943001, which, gave me several remedies, including: create a new Boolean preference name: 'browser.shell.shortcutFavicons and set the value to false. None of the remedies worked.

  1. My solution was a simple one, I backed up my Firefox Profile, uninstalled Firefox, then, reinstalled Firefox, transferred my original profile back back and the problem was solved!

To make the re-installation easier, it's a good idea to download a new copy of the Firefox Installer, that, way you don't start another browser and searching for it, you can just simply run the installer. Also, don't forget to make a copy of your current Firefox Profile.

I hope, that, this helps and I hope, that, I haven't put this in the wrong place!

There is an animated rectangle in my test html page. The rectangle disappears gradually as it gets about a quarter of the way down the screen. I don't have this problem running the same page in Chrome. The code is:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 <head>
  <meta charset="utf-8" />
  <title>SVG</title>
 </head>
 <body bgColor="red">

<script>

var SVG=function(h,w){
 var NS="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg";
 var svg=document.createElementNS(NS,"svg");
           
 //alert(h);
 //svg.width=w;
 //d7,=============================,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,svg.height=h;
 
 return svg;
}
var svg=SVG(1800,1800);
document.body.appendChild(svg); 
alert (svg.height);
var rect=function(h,w,fill){
 var NS="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg";
 var SVGObj= document.createElementNS(NS,"rect");
 SVGObj.width.baseVal.value=w;
 SVGObj.height.baseVal.value=h;
 SVGObj.setAttribute("height",h);
 SVGObj.style.fill=fill;
 return SVGObj;
}

var r= rect(100,200,"blue");
svg.appendChild(r);

r.x.baseVal.value=10;
r.y.baseVal.value=20;

var animate=function(obj){
 obj.x.baseVal.value+=1;
 obj.y.baseVal.value+=1;
}

setInterval("animate(r)",100);
 </script>
</body>
</html>

Thanks

Firefox used to remember my bank password, but it does not any longer. After downloading the update to version 23.0.1 today, the remember password feature appeared broken.

I tried many things and eventually got passwords working on other sites, but not my bank. I deleted the saved password from the password manager in an attempt to try and get the Remember Password prompt to show up again, but it didn't work. I checked in Exceptions and it's completely empty, so that's not it. I also tried using the bookmarklet for fixing autocomplete on sites that it's disabled and my bank doesn't appear to disable it.

I've spent an hour and a half researching this and trying everything I could but I am at a loss. This computers main user is an elderly man so having the bank remember the password is a MUST.

Up to FF 21 I enjoyd this browser a lot. Then the update to 22 really messed up, well let's just say everything. Images look bigger than they actually are, pages suddenly come with scroll bars and I feel i have to move further away from the screen to have a toatl view of a website.

Given all the comments, I am wondering if Mozilla is reconsidering the implementation of this huge mistake and undo it in one of the upcoming updates?
