...Pretty much exactly like the title says. I checked the plugin checker after updating to Firefox 30 to see if there was anything that needed updating. Of course, there was: Shockwave and "Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in".

While I was able to get Shockwave up to date just fine, the Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in is presenting some trouble. As in, when I click "Update Now", instead of redirecting to an update page, it redirects right back to the Plugin Check page.

Where can I go to update this plugin? Does it need to be updated? Is this a glitch in the checker, and therefore I don't need to do anything?

Just looking for an extension or plugin to download .apks from the Play Store to my desktop. I'm talking legally purchased or officially free ones. Chrome has it, but I don't use chrome. I also don't have anything Google on my phone other than, arguably, the OS, which is CyanogenMod. There are apps I'd purchased when I was still running the default OS and I'd like to have them back.

Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.600.19 Plugin, has been blocked by Firefox because its vulnerable, insecure or for the protection of all Firefox users.

Firefox states that The Java Deployment Toolkit plugin isn't unnecessary in most cases & users should keep it disabled unless strictly necessary. Firefox also states the plugin will be automatically disabled and no longer usable, yet it still shows up on my add-ons manager list.

Do I really need The Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.600.19 Plugin? How can I remove The Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.600.19 Plugin? Do I need to download Java 8 from the Oracle website?

Please help! Thanks.

I recently downloaded PowerISO and it changed my search engine to Bing. It did not install any program or plugin that I can plainly see. When I go to control panel and "Uninstall or change programs" I don't see a Bing, nor do I see a plug-in or extension on Firefox. I was able to change my homepage back to Google, but now Firefox always searches through Bing whenever I open a new tab.

So, my main tab works fine, but all my tabs automatically search through Bing. How do I fix this?

How to completely disable Tab Groups?

I don't use Tab Groups and have no need for them. I didn't even know they existed until my tabs starting disappearing.

When I close all tabs I get to the Tabs Group screen. Pressing the Tab Group button doesn't work at all. There I find my missing tabs. When I try to open them they don't open. They start to expand to full screen, but never get there. They just return to the small Tab Group size. I have to close Firefox and start all over.

I have no idea what causes my tabs to go into a new Tab Group, but it happens a lot. When I hit the '+' ("Open a new tab" button) sometimes the new tab is now my only tab and all my other tabs are in a Tab Group that I cannot access. It also happens when I switch to a different tab. I click on the tab and suddenly its my only tab. All others have been grouped and lost since my tab groups will not open.

I would like to completely disable Tab Groups. It's a feature that only causes me frustration.

I just installed Firefox 29.01 and the text labels on my toolbar have disappeared and there doesnt seem to be a way to put them back. How do I do this?

MY QUESTION IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE USER BELOW ASKED (WHICH I HAVE PASTED BELOW), AND HE GOT A STANDARD (AND USELESS) RHETORICAL ANSWER FROM THE SUPPORT STAFF. PLEASE LOOK AT THE SPECIFIC QUESTION ASKED AND DO NOT ANSWER WITH A GENERIC ANSWER LIKE "THIS IS HOW TO ACCESS THE CUSTOMIZATION SCREEN" BECAUSE I FOUND THE CUSTOMIZATION SCREEN WITHOUT HAVING TO ASK AND THAT SCREEN DOES NOT SHOW HOW TO TURN ON THE FEATURE I NEED! DO YOU WONDER WHY I USE ALL CAPS? IF YOU READ THE ACTUAL QUESTION WHEN IT WAS WRITTEN IN LOWER CASE, I WOULDN'T NEED TO USE ALL CAPS!

Last night I updated to Firefox 29.0.1. Now, I don't mind change - and I don't mind redesigns - but I HATE it when options are removed. I want text labels on my buttons (the "Home" button for example"). In the previous version of Firefox you could right-click in the grey space at the top, and select "customise". From there, you could drag and drop which things you wanted to appear in your toolbar or not - and there was a tickbox to selext if you wanted text labels to appear underneath them or not. Now as hard as I look, I can't find this option. It looks like you're now forcing people to ONLY use icons. I hate that. My brain processes the word "Home" a lot faster than it recognises a little picture of a house. You need to understand that people work in different ways - and just because the Firefox developers might not personally use the text labels, that doesn't mean that no-one does!

Where is toolbar icon for QuickProxy? (Not in Customize).

Firefox 29 (and now 29.0.1). First -- I have QuickProxy 2009.07.19 as an Add-On but its button/icon is nowhere. Not in Customize so cannot move it onto the Toolbar (or whatever the toolbar is called these days). So where is QuickProxy's button/icon?

The above is the "important" question.

Second -- the Add-On icons I do have are spread out a bit too much so they cramp the URL window to the left. (Icons only - no text.) Must they be so spread out?

Thanks.

why does adobe flash show as shockwave player in addons

I don't have (nor want) shockwave flash, but it shows that I do in the addons. In addons it shows shockwave flash 12.0.0.44.

How can I be sure it is only flash player and not shockwave flash?

I triple checked that where I update at adobe.com is the proper place for flash player, and I have the correct version, but I don't believe it ever showed as shockwave flash in addons.

I read that there is a critical update for shockwave flash, which wouldn't concern me, except I noticed the addon shows as schockwave flash.

Is this a bug in how firefox shows flash?

Thanks for your help!

when media starts playing on my computer without my consent, this should be considered a cybercime.

The only way for a video to start playing should be `right click -> play`

cut the nonsense with the *media.autoplay.enabled* switch. it doesnt work and it never will. as soon as the website uses any kind of scripting, this switch is ineffective.


which extension do i need to install to stop this autoplay nightmare forever?

I have an issue with "save as". Can't download whenever I want to choose where to copy something (plus a few other related bugs). Seems not to work when an explorer window is supposed to pop up. I found in FF troubleshooting, that the following 3 files were missing in my "about:config": browser.download.dir browser.download.downloadDir browser.download.lastDir My question is how can I enter them properly? Hoping that's the cause for this issue.
