I have developed a problem where by every time I go to certain web sites I am asked to turn on Javascript in my browser in order to continue viewing the page correctly. Whilst trying to find an answer to this problem I have discovered it needs to say under about:config "Javascript enabled" - default - true, but mine says default - boolean - true. Does anyone know if this is right and can anyone tell me what the correct settings should be so that I don't get the same statement on pages that really need Javascript ? Thank you.

WOW long time Mozilla Firefox user, but new update just keeps getting better and better ( NOT!) It took away my icons bookmarks etc, and started giving me forbidden access errors for websites and would not let me open sponsor links in Amazon, and would not let me re- download updated yahoo tool bar, and I could go on and on, but the point is: this was NOT beta version, its the real deal and all it is ends up being more trouble than its worth! WHY oh WHY must Mozilla update and yet make it all worse for it's users? I spent hours trying to find work arounds, etc, and finally have been forced to go back uninstall it and install the Mozilla 35 version that might not be perfect, but it works and so does all my stuff work in it. The other thing, I do the syncing, but that does not help get anything back and I do the mozbackup ( software program) but it would not fix the issues Mozilla firefox 36 has.

So I guess like many others, I will have to wait around till its been out awhile and see if same issues, then go back to 35 if all else fails. This is why I stayed so long on FF 17 or 19 anything to keep from updating, but I know I know, its about security blahblah blah... so i finally break down and update, but always always always to my dismay it takes me hours to get things back or get them right or lose them altogether frankly I wish there would be no final update until testing is really done, i know you can't help what add on's etc we have as there are so many, but beyond those crashes or not working add on situations, there are problems with this update ( and so many of them) so can you please fix them before you put this stuff out there for us to use???

Hi I am in the same situation as many others I have seen posting here. Shockwave flash is continually crashing to the extent it takes several minutes to get to the add-ons manager and disable shockwave flash. I have reinstalled all adobe plugins, so they are up to date. I am having real problems accessing a lot of web pages/web page content because with shockwave flash enabled firefox is all but frozen and with shockwave flash disabled a lot of web content isn't available.

I have looked at other threads that I found and have attempted all of the suggested solutions and have selected the Troubleshooting Information option below this text box. I have a huge list of crash reports, unfortunately I am not sure how to load them

Any suggestions appreciated

Regards.

HOW TO BLOCK SITES & RESTORE THE LIST I HAD ACCRUED THAT "SOMEONE" DELETED FOR ME - I SUSPECT FIREFOX

Changes are being Made to my Firefox Preferences - Latest is my list of Blocked Sites got Erased and Now there is no block key

I don't want to add any sites to ALLOW, its already set to do that.

I strongly suspect that Firefox is responsible for my vanished long-collected lists of sites that are a total pain because there is no longer a way to BLOCK SITES.

Sites keep popping up and so I want to add them LIKE I USED TO DO but PRESTO - option is gone.

HOW CONVENIENT that just after somebody deleted my list of undesirable nuisance sites FIREFOX also has changed/hidden any ability to ADD BLOCK SITES

I am really ticked because I have read tech articles that talk about Firefox implementing or already installing updates on their own accord. If I ever get full proof of that me and firefox are gone.

I WANT THE ABILITY TO BLOCK SITES - what difference does it make to Firefox if I block annoying sites unless they are becoming the enemy.

Firefox has been causing some problems recently such as youtube videoes won't load. I asked the forum's help but it didn't solve anything. So I want to reinstall Firefox to check if it fixes the problem. However, I want everything to be kept the same like bookmarks, history, and such. Is there anyway I can save the data and still reinstall firefox?

how to remove/change printer in Important Modified Prefs; stays as default

Old printer (Samsung, listed in my Important Modified Preferences in Troubleshooting) will not allow new printer to be Default printer. No matter what I do. I've followed the instructions here in FF Help re about:config & reset and others too. Is this something to do with FF? I've tried to find & delete the old printer all over my laptop, but it stays there like a bad penny as the default anyway. Is there a way to get rid of it by changing a code or something? Never had this problem before. I would appreciate any help you can give me. Kindest regards.

I have, in about:preferences, set "Use VLC web plugin" as the default application for playing mp4 files, and have set media.play-stand-alone to false in about:config. However, when I open mp4 files, it plays in the firefox player, not the vlc player.

How do I remedy this situation.?

FF35 H264 Videos Corrupted

We use mp4 files using the h264 codec on our server to play videos. The files in FF prior to FF35 worked fine, they work in IE8+, and Chrome. In FF35 we now get the following message in the console

Media resource FILEPATH/FILENAME.mp4 could not be decoded.

If we then load the resource directly we get

Video can't be played because the file is corrupt.

Is there something we have to do to the mp4 files to get them working in FF35? This behavior has been replicated on FF35 on OS 10.6.8-10.9, Windows 7, and Windows 8. All systems were updated to FF35 after testing and having the videos play successfully with varying FFs between 32 and 34.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Also if links to the resources would be helpful please let me know.
