One day I opened up Firefox, tried to search for something, and the search would not work. I soon realized that I had no search engines installed. They'd all disappeared. I did nothing to make them disappear as far as I know. I've tried to find any search engines to install, but can find only search engine enhancers.

I just downloaded Firefox's 4 Beta browser for my new Macbook Pro. When I try to use the pinch and zoom function of my keypad, it has no effect in Firefox 4.

I would like to be able to use this function with Firefox. Is is just not compatible with the new version 4 beta? How else can you zoom in and enlarge a web page's text & images in firefox 4?

I have already checked my keypad settings and the pinch-zoom function is turned on and works correctly on my desktop, in safari and other programs on my Mac.

4.0b9 on Windows XP

I just get a white section where a shockwave flash object should be, and in all the occurences I've found it's when the flash object is embedded. Youtube works just fine, though... In the "white section" I can right-click and get the options for Adobe Flash Player 10, but I cannot actually choose any of the menu options. In some cases, I can choose to display the flash object in another tab, and then it works just fine. Typically an embedded youtube movie clip acts like that that, but not always.

In an example, I see only a white section where the shockwave flash object should be visible in Pichfork TV - http://pitchfork.com/tv/

When I open the page information, in the media section, list of URL's, I find an URL that is both grey and italic, and describes this URL as type Embedded:

  URL  -  http://pitchfork-cdn.s3.amazonaws.com/player/DelveMoviePlayer.swf
  Type -  application/x-shockwave-flash

I assume this URL is grey and italic because it is not loaded or opened in the pitchfork TV site.

This is the same problem with most embedded flash objects, and I really hope someone can help me! I've browsed aroud the support forums and tried a lot of different tips, but to no avail. I have of course uninstalled and reinstalled both flash player and shockwave from adobe's site, and made sure it's not the active-x version for IE that's installed. My add-in manager claims that Shockwave Flash 10.1 r102 is installed and enabled, and the release is the latest available according to adobe.com.

I have also tried to open FF in secure/private mode, but same problem in both modes. Just to check, I tried to open this site with IE8, and there it displays correctly (and I also remembered why I don't ever use IE8, haha...), so apparently the active-x part of shockwave/flash works...

Ubuntu 10.10 Firefox 4.0b9 french

Désolé mais je ne suis doué ni en anglais ni en informatique. Avec la version 4 beta, je ne trouve plus ni en bas de l'écran ni ailleurs ce qu'on appelle la "barre d'état" en français et qui est bien utile pour savoir si une page se charge ou non. A-t-elle quelque chose qui la remplace ? Y a-t-il un truc à cocher quelque part (sur la version 3, c'est dans "affichage") ? Est-ce un mauvais réglage de ma part ou un bug ? Merci pour tout ce que vous faites. Cordialement, Michel Astre

I've had Mozilla Firefox since it started with 1.o. In the past (as far as up to Firefox 3 I believe), importing bookmarks were under "File>import." However, Firefox 4 doesn't seem to have that same "File" menu anymore. Where can I import bookmarks now? About 4 months ago, I had to stop using Mozilla 3, and just use IE as Mozilla was eating too much RAM from my old computer. I just got a new computer, but the transfer took my old Firefox bookmarks. I've since changed them in IE, and now I want the new ones now that I have Firefox4 on my new computer.

Our company has started receiving Office 2010 for the laptops we use in-house. We use Firefox to run our mail client, Zimbra. All laptops have Windows XP Pro.

After installing Office 2010, the browser seems to "lose" the Office file associations. In other words, if I try to open an attached .docx/.xlsx/etc file, Firefox thinks it's a ZIP file and tries to open it with the ZIP program and not Word, Excel, etc.

How can I get the browser to reassociate these files to open with the proper program?

Could you give us an update on how color management has changed in Firefox 4 (if at all) and if V4 ICC profiles are supported again?

There are still very few browsers that really support color management correctly and this it's a pretty big deal for photography buffs and users of wide-gamut monitors.

Tried looking at FF4 FAQs and support and also Googled and Binged but I could not find any info on this related to FF4.

Thanks.

Everytime I download a file, firefox will hang for around 2-3 seconds and as soon as the download window pops up, it runs again.

I also have the exact same issue when I open a file into the browser. With that I mean like when you have to browse for a file to upload to imageshack for example. When i click the file and open it, firefox will hang for a couple of seconds and then resume again.

I've had this issue with the latest version of firefox BEFORE i installed firefox 4 beta 9. So that means I have the EXACT same issue with firefox 4 beta 9 as well as the latest version of firefox 3... What could be causing this?
