Why, after updating plug-ins thru firefox's system [specifically adobe acrobat 10.1.4.38] it doesn't recognize it and says I need to update ?

This has been happening on & off for awhile. I've tried updating thru firefox, uninstalling & updating in firefox, and within acrobat. It says its updating but the version doesn't change & can't find any evidence it did. Even uninstalling it still reinstalled 10.1.4.38 - the same version I've had since started using firefox. By the way, today I updated 'Shockwave Flash' thru same place & update said it still needed to update (cant remember which version it said) but I had disabled Shockwave for Director'. When I enabled it the update stopped saying it needed Flash update. Any chance there is a link between Acrobat & something else similar to the 'Director' that will assist in update recognizing it? A distant cousin-program?

Hello. Not really an emergency, just a very annoying and weird problem. Lately, videos that use Tumblr's uploader have been playing while looking like this: http://i.imgur.com/sReXFa2.jpg?1. I don't know if this started with Firefox's new version, or if it's a tumblr only issue, but that's how it is.

Here's the weird part: Start Firefox in Safe Mode, and it plays just fine, without all that weird coloring issue. Play it after Firefox has been reset, however, and it still looks like the link above. As far as I know, Safe Mode is pretty much Firefox when reset (though correct me if I'm wrong), but without the hassle of re-downloading your add-ons after you exit it.

Another weird part?: If I downgrade to version 22, the video also plays just fine, even with Add-ons added in.

So... any ideas about this?

EDIT: I might also note that videos that utilize YouTube and other sources play just fine. It's just the Tumblr-uploaded videos that have issues.

Also, why am I asking this here if it's a Tumblr issue? Because this problem only seems to crop up in FF (I tried Chrome and IE, and could not replicate the issue there).

When using my eprint function (e-mailing attachments to my printer through gmail), I have to send the attachment without subject or text in body to prevent it printing extra pages. Gmail automatically asks me "Send message without text in body?" and "Send message without a subject?" which was getting annoying. SO, I clicked the checkbox marked "Prevent this site from creating any more dialogs," hoping that would stop the pop-ups.

Now, the pop-ups don't appear, but gmail simply doesn't send the message, so I get stuck unless I enter a subject and body text (which is a pain and wastes paper by printing an extra page). I can't figure out how to 'undo' what I did in either Firefox or Gmail. I'm using version 4.0.1.

Help???

we have firefox esr version which we use in kiosk mode. we want to disable navigation bar but should be able to open multiple tabs and access them.

Now problem is : once i enable tabs and navbar is hidden. then we are not able to access next/previous tabs. key shortcut (Ctrl+tab or Ctrl+shift+tab) doesn't work. so we can not see another tab.

once i show navbar/tabs then address bar/search bar is also visible which we don't want.

Our requirement is to see multiple tabs with no address/search bar. Please provide help on how we can go to solve this.

Thanks

Can't Fire fox remember the dam pages I go to? Every freaking time I go to a new page that props up and I have to click allow. I would like to get rid of that for good so if you can help me that's cool if not then good bye. I go to explorer for browser. I can't take it anymore. Plus when I'm reading that page moves up again and I have to click allow again.

I sometimes see a video on a website that I'd like to save. I'd expect to click on it, and hit [copy], and [paste] it in a folder. Or [Save as...], and give it a name and address. But no: no can do. Is there a utility or plug-in I need, or is there a Firefox feature I'm unaware of? I'm running Windows Vista, on a dialup, so once I download something I'd rather keep it than do it again.

Hi. I just started using Firefox and I am really impressed. I like it.

I noticed that when posting a message on Facebook, there is a spell check that runs and highlights words that it thinks are misspelled. I did not see this using IE9. Is there any way to turn this 'spell checking ' off?

Thank you,

Zoom is driving me nuts! I use multiple tabs and windows, and to maximize screen space I need to make some pages very small. In IE each window can be zoomed independently- but with firefox they all change if you change any window's zoom. I've tried NoSquint add-on and it adds site-specific zoom, which is still not what I need. Surely there's an add-on that allows each window to have its own zoom level.

I know that Firefox support for Vista and XP is ending August 2018 and version 52.8.x is the final release for those operating systems. However, there is no mention of support or releases for Windows server 2008. I tried to install the latest 64bit version (60.x) and received the error message stating ver 52.8 is the version i should be installing. Is Firefox terminating support for Windows Server 2008 in line w/Vista and XP? Server 2008 is still supported by Microsoft, so what's the deal?

This happened since 2-3 days ago. I didn't install or download anything. Also, my settings are on "Remember history" and I have tried the custom settings. In addition, I'm not on private browsing. All of my history is still there except the ones from 2-3 days ago. For example, my "Today" history is not there. Bookmarking still works. I don't know if this helps but I do experience occasional crashes in Firefox although I doubt that would be the cause because I had experienced these crashes since a long time ago. This problem is only recent.

I included the troubleshooting information if that helps.

I'm using Firefox in Swedish, but I think these would be the terms in English:

I did a back-up of my bookmarks in Firefox before I formated my PC, which resulted in this file: "bookmarks-2013-03-31". It's not an HTML-file and I think neither an JSON-file. When I'm now trying to "recover" the bookmarks from this file, it say's that the file-type isn't supported. What the heck?!? A back-up file that isn't supported by it's own program??!?
(I just did a quick and simple back-up, and am now trying to restore it. It shouldn't be any problem, as I see it).
