Hi all,

I use this page for years to get news on China (http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/society.html) It's obviously legit. Since two days ago when the page loads the CPU usage goes to 50-60% and stays there and FF starts to freeze, becoming unusable.

Interesting point: I just loaded the site on IE 8 with no problems. Some script they are using doesn't jive with FF it seems.

Thanks for any suggestions.

The Firefox add-on Media loop is described as a "Menu item to control [HTML5] audio/video loop" - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/media-loop/. Media loop can be used to repeat HTML5 videos on any website, not just YouTube.

Can you to implement Media loop in HTML5 Videos Everywhere! and a Repeat button that uses it in Control. Refer to the red marked repeat icon located bottom right at the above modified screenshot?

HTML5 Video Everywhere uses Firefox native HTML5 player control bar, however, it has a repeat function but it must be enabled either from the context menu of from the preferences in the Add-ons.

I am deploying Firefox ESR 31.X to all computers in my company. We have security plugins that I need to have forcibly running on each computer so that the users cannot disable it. The main example of this is McAfee SiteAdvisor. Firefox finds the plugin based upon the HKLM\Software\MozillaPlugins registry key. The plugin provides a PATH to the DLL location in the Program Files\McAfee folder. Is there any way that I can set this plugin to always be enabled?

If there isn't a way, it seems an obvious enhancement.

On my Mac, I click on Firefox and then About Firefox and find that I am running Firefox 31.0. There is no indication whether this is last version or not. Previously, I got some indication that I was not running the current version. And I got a pop up box which showed that the computer was trying to connect to the Firefox facility - I can 't remember the exact name - which would have - I believe - started the update process. This pop up box ran for sometime and didn't seem to complete before it disappeared unretrievably from the screen after I took some extraneous computer action. So... now I am wondering: Do I have the latest Firefox installation or not?

We are trying to use a Zebra GC420d printer to print name labels through a checkin online database. However as part of the config instructions provided to set up the printer setting, I must check the box 'print selection only' in the print dialogue box in Firefox. However this check box cannot be clicked because it is 'greyed' out. What do I need to change so I can check this box? Thanks, Shannon

Howdy,

I run a Private Certificate Authority for my personal use and just to learn about SSL Certs. However, with the current build of FireFox I'm on ( 31 ) I can no longer visit sites I've secured with SSL Certs signed by this certificate authority, even though these SSL certs work just perfectly fine in Chrome and Internet Explorer. I keep getting a "sec_error_inadequate_cert_type" error. I can only assume that the certs I've been issuing are incorrect in some way, but the error is so vague and the error page doesn't specify more.

I only discovered this when I realized some of my SSL certs had expired, and I went to re-issue them.

One of the certs that hasn't expired yet but is experiencing problems can be found here:

One of the Certs I've tried re-issuing, matching fields included as closely as I can to a Google SSL cert that I looked up is here:

These certificates were generated using the application called SimpleAuthority, found here: http://simpleauthority.com/

A Site like Networking4All.com seems to believe the Certs are valid, excepting the CA that is Self Signed: http://www.networking4all.com/en/support/tools/site+check/report/?fqdn=phpmyadmin.endofevolution.com&protocol=https

Interestingly enough, using a different site like SSLShopper shows an error similar to FF31: http://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=https://phpmyadmin.endofevolution.com

The certs are running on an Apache Web server: Apache/2.2.21 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.2.21 OpenSSL/1.0.0e PHP/5.3.10

The CA Cert is in FireFox's store as trusted.

If needed, I can provide certs.

Am curious what format the browser measures file download speeds, bits or bytes per second?

I have searched everywhere and cannot find a clear answer. I am aware of the capitalization of the letters usually defines the terms it's measured in, however this appears to be non-standard across the internet, depending who you ask.

eg, kB = kilobytes, kb = kilobits.

firefox lists the downloads in capitials : KB or MB

I would assume it's measuring in BYTES not BITS.

If anyone can clarify this, it would be much appreciated.

Thankyou :)
