Silverlight has stopped working in Firefox 12.0 but works fine in Safari. Have uninstalled and reinstalled but this didn't fix it. I also tried the font fix with Arial and Verdana but this didn't fix either.

Would appreciate any help.

I have FF 16.0.1 and Java plugin 7 u 9, this is not the java with security problems... http://web.psjaisd.us/auston.cron/ABCronPortal/GeoGebraMenu/Investigating%20Parent%20FunctionsUsing%20GeoGebraGeoGebra%20is%20graphing.htm loads very slowly or not at all, including the majority of the links on the page...this is a menu to multiple Java applets in GeoGebra. This page has a preload link which causes a problem. All links are java applets which until your security issues on Java were implements worked flawlessly and better than any other browser service...

You are forcing me to us IE, which I despise!

I cannot copy from crashing page...

When I try to update Java I get this message-Java Plugin 7 update 16 to 24 (click-to-play), Windows has been blocked for your protection.

Why was it blocked?

   Old versions of the Java plugin are potentially insecure and unstable. All users are strongly recommended to update on our plugin check page.

Who is affected?

   All users who have these versions of the plugin installed in Firefox.

What does this mean?

   The problematic add-on or plugin will be automatically disabled and no longer usable.
   When Mozilla becomes aware of add-ons, plugins, or other third-party software that seriously compromises Firefox security, stability, or performance and meets certain criteria, the software may be blocked from general use. For more information, please read this support article.

Blocked on June 28, 2013. View block request. A lot of the games on Pogo will not load without Java. What can I do? My computer knowledge is weak. Thank you for any help.

I am trying to determine what Firefox browser version I am running. I typed in about:support to find more info, but I couldn't find clearly where it says what version I'm running. I don't know what link to select to find out, but under "User Agent" it reads: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:21.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/21.0

So I didn't know if the WOW64 referred to a 64-bit OS or not?

I would appreciate any help.

Thank you. Katya S.

When I go to a site and try to open something (like a monthly statement, etc.) instead of opening it in pdf so I can read it Firefox makes me download it, save it, and then open it. Then I have to go through the whole find it and delete it routine if I don't want to keep it. Don't know why this started to happen recently, and it does not do it on all sites.

Just recently gotten back into using Firefox. Have been using Chrome. Firefox has one thing that Chrome doesn't have. So I see a number of old Plugs Ins from back when. How do I delete them. I've set to Never Activate. After each Plug In shows RESEARCH. But I don't want to research...I want to delete the old ones. So where do I go from here?

A lot of people have this problem, so did i.

It only happened if i was logged on as an user (on multiple computers), thus the administrator user account didn't had any problems.

After multiple months of frustration and browsing the internet for a solution i was at the point of try to change each setting in Firefox and see if it would work, if not set it back. Luckily my first educated guess was the correct one! :)

What worked for me was to set the 'dom.ipc.plugins.flash.subprocess.crashreporter.enabled' to false in about:config

1. Thus type in your browser the next url: about:config 2. Click the button: 'I'll be carefull, I promise!' 3. type in the new searchbar: 'dom.ipc.plugins.flash.subprocess.crashreporter.enabled' 4. double click on the preference to set it to false. 5. close the tab in Firefox 6. close (all instances of) Firefox 7. start Firefox 8. happy surfing :)

Enjoy

As you can see, files with the .midi extension open in the plugin in firefox fine, but .mid files don't. I've followed several advices over the past several hours, including deleting the .mid entry from the mimetypes file. Nothing works. it won't let me associate it with the plugin so when i try to click it just downloads them.

Can someone, anyone, help me fix this?

Vevo or any other official music videos are not playing in Firefox. After loading for 10 seconds, I am getting "An Error occurred" error. I don't have this problem with other videos. This problem occurred yesterday, although I didn't do any system changes or software updates during the day. In Internet Explorer 11 which using HTML5 Player by default, those videos are starting to play but only after 10 seconds load and not immediately like other videos. When forcing HTML5 Player in Firefox those videos are starting to play after 10 seconds load like in IE but HTML5 Player is very instable in Firefox. Software wise everything is up to date and I already reinstalled both Firefox and IE but the problem is still there. Even System Restore didn't help. Net research also didn't bring any solutions.
