Any time I go on an online video player (youtube, facebook), the borders( where options such as volume, length, and time are on) are noticeably smaller, help?

I can' specify anything that might have triggered this, but that's because I don't recall entering any "shady" websites. One day I simply noticed that the borders of vide… (read more)

I can' specify anything that might have triggered this, but that's because I don't recall entering any "shady" websites. One day I simply noticed that the borders of videos were practically microscopic in size From facebook to youtube, trying to change a video's volume of length has been a chore as it's incredibly difficult to work with options that are in minimal size.

Since updating my firefox on my laptop ( not this pc ) to 35.01 my entire browser is messed up.

Some of my extensions dont work anymore , but they are still suitable and available for the 35.01 version. Flash is totally trippin'. Add ons i didnt installed earlier are now in my extensions list without me ever downloading them?

i allready did the basic troubleshooting but even in safe mode and with all extensions disabled its still one big chaos.

Hi, I got a problem on youtube full screen problem or some other flash player didn't go into full screen. What I meant here is, my problem when clicking the full screen button, the player would also switch my firefox into full screen mode and the video/flash player still bound inside the firefox full screen mode. It's like you switch firefox into full screen mode, then you stretch/zoom the video to fit the whole viewing area.

Is there any way to fix this annoying problem?

Videos embedded into webpages had started not playing for more than a couple of seconds. I could drag to a new part of the video and always the same thing. (No - it wasn't bufferering!)

BBC iplayer had the same problem.

I disabled the Cisco OpenH264 add-on and everything worked again.

I didn't turn it on so it must have happened in an upgrade. My settings are all straight out of the box - I'm not a computer expert - I use Firefox as it comes.

My question - is this normal? Have I solved my own problem or do I need OpenH264?

Thnaks, Andrew

I recently had an issue with my ISP. My ping was over 1000 and my Download/Upload speeds were .07 or so. While this was going on (well before I realized there was a problem.) I was watching a movie on Amazon. Now silverlight in just firefox is broken. It keeps thinking that my connection is crap. I can not seem to fix this issue.

What I have tried to do: Uninstall/Reinstall Firefox and Silverlight Clear all Application data in regards to firefox Delete all Cookies/browsing history.


Funny thing I have tested the problem in Internet Explorer and found silverlight to be working fine. Yet when i go back to firefox it will not work.

Pages with Arabic in <h1> elements display first paragraph incorrectly

I seem to be unable to upload screenshots, but a visit to this page will show my problem at a glance: http://www.moralintelligence.net/site/staff/abdel_irada.php.

Looking at the first paragraph of text, to the right of the drop cap, you will see that it's been floated right, stretching the page horizontally and bringing the end of each line of text to the edge of the screen.

This happens on several pages on my site, and apparently not to any others. What the affected pages have in common is Arabic in the <h1> element above the first paragraph.

Since Arabic text direction is predominantly R-L, I think the browser is applying that direction to the first paragraph and floating it to the *right*.

I have tried using several recommendations to correct this problem by tightly wrapping the Arabic in a "dir=rtl" span and then escaping by adding a "&lrm;" character immediately following the span. I have also tried backup recommendations offered in case the first ones failed. None of them makes the least bit of difference.

Meanwhile, the page displays properly in Safari 5.1.7.

Is this a Firefox 35.01 bug, or is there something I need to add to my code to get around this?

С сегодняшнего дня при запуске Firefox антивирус Avast! начал сообщать об инфекции URL:Mail с URL-адресом https://54.149.18.169 (Процесс C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe). При запуске в безопасном режиме такого сообщения нет. После очистки Firefox этого сообщения вновь нет. Но при попытке войти в учетную запись вновь поступает сообщение об инфекции URL:Mail с URL-адресом https://54.149.18.169:443/1.0/syns/1.5 (Процесс C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe). Kто-то сталкивался с подобной проблемой? Как это решить? Может быть конфликт у новой версии 35.0.1 и Аvast! ?

How do I find out where in firefox a suspicious piece of software is?

Somehow a program/plugin/extension named (keeptube) will show up everytime I am on a website that has linked a youtube video. Its a piece of code that takes you to a site that allows you to download youtube videos (http://savemedia.com ). So the website and the button have different names .

Its not very well programmed because it consistantly places itself over the "view on youtube","make fullscreen" and "settings" buttons at the bottom right corner of the video every time I am on such a page.

I need to get rid of it.

Neither "DO NOT" show up in addons/plugins/extensions. Again, neither names "DO NOT" show up in addons/plugins/extensions. (sry I needed to make this clear so I dont get the oft repeated reply to situations like this).

What do I do to find out where its coming from?

thanks for your time, Jerome.

Every time I log out of my university email, my private email which is also gmail, comes up with the remembered password there (but encrypted, not showing the letters/numbers). Can the university gain access through this to my private email password and account? I use Firefox for the university browsing and email as this was what was recommended by them to use.

This is a new problem, and I noticed a couple other people posted about it yesterday. I am having great difficulty reading text on most of the websites I visit. The fonts look like bleeding ink, and in many cases the letters look like they have small holes. I checked my font settings, and tried changing each thing one at a time, and since nothing made a difference I put everything back the way it was. I had set some font settings myself, and I thought maybe I should try the default fonts but can't find what they are.

Does this have anything to do with an update? The only thing I'm certain of is that I had a Windows update yesterday. I've uploaded a screen shot of some text, but it doesn't look the same in the capture as it appears on the website.
