I have a report in an email which needs a British pound sign in a password to open it, but my keyboard does not have this sign. I suspect there is somewhere a list of signs I could choose from. How do I find it?

I click on the rotating balls of download helper and it looks as though the download is taking only a couple seconds. Then, when I click on it to play it it doesn't work and says, The document “Barney_ I Hear Music Everywhere.mp4” could not be opened. The movie's file format isn't recognized. To see if additional software is available that will enable QuickTime Player to open the movie, click Tell Me More.

I have a 2011 Apple Macbook Pro 13".

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Luke Wilson

I tried updating the flash player after updating to the newest version on Firefox and it still doesn't work. That flash player problem needs to get fixed. This is so annoying! It does that on versions higher than Firefox 13.

I also have the hardware acceleration turned off.

I installed the jdk 1.6u7, and then I open firefox, I see there is a java console 6.0.07 in extension, but in plugins, there is no java. and I can't open java website, it shows I don't install java in my machine, but actually, I have installed jdk 1.6u7. I think only if the java exists in plugins, the website can get the jvm and run.

it seems it is ok if I install a jdk which will create a plugin in plugins, and the extension can't be used.

Before this evening I have been able to right click and Save As pictures on various sites easily. Now, tonight after my brother used my computer, I cannot do that. It doesn't give me the ability to save a PNG, BMP, GIF, JPEG, or any type of image file. The file type line is completely blank and won't allow me to do a thing.

Here is a screen capture: http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h8/SuperPhillip/firefoxerror_zpsbabbc37d.png

Hi Firefox team. I do not have question, but have some comment. I expect when you uninstall FF it should keep the content of "Downloads" which may have some valuable stuff, which has nothing to do with FF itself. But I would expect the crap "extensions" like "PriceGong" should be deleted!

And I would put clear comments in help how to remove that carp, which usually forcefully installed.

Thanks Best regards Mike

The Adobe Flash plugin for Firefox isn't working

Per the title. The issue came up after a Flash update. It seems to work fine in Firefox and Chrome, but when I try to, let's say, watch a YouTube video in Firefox, it won't work. It's not confined to YouTube, either: the same thing happens with Hulu as well as The Nostalgia Critic's website, whose videos are hosted by Blip.tv.

I'm pretty sure that the problem isn't JavaScript or another type of script, because JS appears to work fine - the dropdown list on YouTube's search bar functions how it's supposed to and Wikia's main page loads correctly, and these are functions which I know run off of JS. The same thing holds true for Sliverlight scripts and all of my other script plugins except for Flash.

I've tried clearing my cache and starting a new Firefox profile. I even reinstalled Firefox, but I kept all of my profiles when I did so, so I'm inclined to believe that if indeed it is a problem with Firefox and not with the Flash plugin, then it's a problem with one of the profiles.

I have a new home computer using Windows 7 Professional that came with IE 9.0 which won't work on our Firepass for my job. I am testing Firefox 13.0.1. When I go to my company Firepass site it wants to download the F5 Host plugin. That plugin gets an error that it won't work with Firefox 13.0.1. Is there some place that I can get a different plug-in that will work? Is there something that I can change with Firefox? Can I get an earlier version that will work with F5?

since I installed Firefox 13.0, scrolling down pages went a bit smoother. My PC is a bit old, so when i have youtube played in one tab and I'm smoothly scrolling in another, every time i scroll down the music stops for the time i scroll down. Like some sort of lag, but my internet connection is fine.

so my question was; How can i turn this feature off, so i can listen to music without the stops when scrolling?
