How do I totally remove Shockwave Flash 15.0.0152. Using Ubuntu 12.04, FF 32.0.3. It seems that I have Shockwave Flash 11.2.202.406 installed also...How ???. When I disable SWF 15.xxx, it disables SWF 11.xxx also.

This was happening before I installed Chrome browser. Chrome is the only way I can use my computer without throwing thing about the room.

When I enable SWF 11.xxx, and leave SWF 15.xxx disabled, SWF turns on SWF 15.xxx. Seems these two versions are screwing up everything on my computer. Can't watch videos, FF goes gray screen and stuck, for 30 seconds, then recovers, then goes gray screen, then a message comes up "bad script -- Stop?", etc.,etc.

Lately when I am using T-bird email the screen goes gray and stops working.

Please help

Thanks SB

They also have "This website does not supply Identity Information" if you hover over the fav icon (where padlock should be.

The Technical Details are in Firefox 3.0 windows 8.1 "websiteaddresss" uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)"

In IE 11 Windows 8.1 There's no error but also no padlock or security info at all

In Windows 7 there's just no padlock and the same hover over message

Google chrome in windows 8.1 shows every thing as being OK and secure and viewing security info Shows "the identity of this website has been verified by USERTrust High-Assurance Secure Server CA but it does not have public audit records."


Please Don't Suggest Installing Certificates on my system I cant have every potential visitor to these sites doing this.

So is this a Bug in firefox 30 or windows 8.1 or with the actual certificate or cert providers ? If with providers then what do they need to do in order for it to work without errors in any browser ?

Every web page with video / audio content begins to autoplay (at the vid's highest volume) approximately 5 seconds after opening the page. I could disable this in Safari and Chromium, but see no option to disable the 'Autoplay' feature in Firefox. Worse, there are no plug-ins or extensions available that will allow this to be done. If you have had success disabling this annoying 'feature' (it's not a 'bug,' right?), please advise how it was done so that I may rid myself of these annoying vids. Thanks in advance.

I am a Realtor and need to upload PDF files to the website www.dotloop.com. This site only allows uploads of PDF files. When I attempt to upload a PDF the website returns an error message that says "You Can Only Upload PDF Files". When I call the website support they say it is a problem with Firefox mis-identifying the file type to the website. I attempted to unistall firefox and reinstall (suggested by .dotloop support) but this did not fix the problem. Is there a setting or some update to fix this?

I need to use a Java plugin to allow my banking system to run so I need to pre-empt the removal of plugins from Version 52 when it goes from Beta to release?

Does anyone know what date the ESR which allows plugins like Java will be available until?

Alternatively, I know IE has no plans to remove plugins but are there any alternative channels that I could pursue ?

I just updated firefox and was bookmarking a page but when I opened the bookmarks menu to check that it was there and delete the old version of the page the new bookmark was not present. On closer inspection I noticed it saved it to "other bookmarks" instead. How do I change the default save location back to the bookmark menu because as often as I update my bookmarks with newer pages having to manually select the bookmark menu is gonna get old really fast.
