Add-ons Manager displays Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.510.13 as being out of date, however, when visiting the Java website and running a check on the version, this returns the message it is up-to-date. Why then is Add-ons Manager displays this inaccuracy?...Is there a fix available that would resolve this ongoing issue as it is now beginning to reflect its effects on websites using the service.

I have noticed symptoms of Malware / Adware within my Firefox browser. It seems to spontaneously open a tab telling me I need to download software with text "Video Update Recommended".

There are 2 webpage links that are effectively pointing me to update my video software. These appear spontaneously.

Searching on both yields indications of being infected on some level. I tried doing my Symantec check and it came up with nothing.


Here is a screenshot of the page I get:






The install link points to: http://ttb.dllultimatesoft.com/download..

I have also tried malwarebytes, Microsoft Security Essentials and adware. However, it persists. It may not be linked to Grooveshark, but I notice it seems to appear while listening to Grooveshark.

Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

BTW, adware reports my prefs.js file as a virus. It has been removed a couple of times and still sees it as virus. I reset Firefox. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled. Didn't make a difference.


thanks, John

I have two PC's I have Firefox on both and I have some time in the past set up sync as from the firefox (top left) icon it has listed 'sync now'

What I would like to know is what exactly gets synced !

When clicking 'Sync Now', is this an upload or a download from the PC ?

If a download then how do you do an upload of changes and if a download how do you do an upload of changes from either PC.

I am totally confused how it works please explain as my two PC's only seem to have been synced once after the first time I joined them with the code !

Well, I've spent most of my day trying to figure out how to fix this. My power unexpectedly went out overnight and I left my computer on. When I woke up, i saw that the computer was off. So I started my computer, but when I went to get onto Firefox, none of my windows and tabs were there. (and I did have a ton of tabs open.) There wasn't even a "Restore Previous Session" icon to press on the Firefox homepage or a "Well, this is embarrassing" window. I tried opening "sessionstore.js" and "sessionstore.bak", but then a window came up titled "Windows Script Host" and said "Microsoft JScript Compilation Error." Then all there is to do is press "Ok". (By the way, at another time today when I tried opening a .js file, it said "Windows can't open this file" and it wanted me to choose the program I wanted to use to open the file, or use the internet to find a program. I chose Notepad, but then it was just a bunch of letters, words and symbols.)

I've also tried entering "about:sessionrestore" to get my windows and tabs back and then it says "Well, this is embarrassing." and "Firefox is having trouble recovering your windows and tabs." And there are no windows and tabs showing up below that sentence, with check marks, like it is when session restore has worked for me in the past. The only thing that worries me is that I did restart my computer between when I first started it this morning and now, when I'm writing this. I wanted to see if the "Restore Previous Session" icon would bring up my missing windows and tabs from before. But all it brought up automatically were the current windows and tabs that I have open right now. So now I'm wondering if I've permanently lost those tons of tabs that I had open before the power went out.

The other thing is that when I first got onto Firefox today, I could see all of my history from the days, weeks, and months past. Now I can only see today's history. I know I pressed something when I was trying to fix things but I don't remember what I pressed. Maybe that changed whether or not I could see the previous months' history. I did try "places.sqlite", "places.sqlite-shm" and "places.sqlite-wal" to restore my history, but again it said "Windows can't open this file" and it wanted me to choose a program to open the file. So again I chose Notepad, and it was just a bunch of letters, numbers, and symbols.

Hopefully someone may have an answer for me. Thanks!

I stupidly did a Refresh on Windows 8.1 when having trouble with Clean Up disk not working. I know that i need to find the hidden files from other questions on here, and have checked the box for this, but how do i actually access these files, to get them back onto my Desktop. have lost Firefox history and bookmarks,my Avast Security,etc etc. I believe that i can retrieve them, is this right? I am not terribly computer literate but can follow instructions if they are kept simple. many thanks anyone.

Passwords get saved without asking for option if I do want to save the password for this site or not. So passwords for sites that I dont want saved are saved.

I am using Firefox version 28. I have ticked the option to save passwords and am using a Master password to save and protect all passwords. Of late, I have noticed that whenever a site is opened and a password is input, Firefox just saves it, without giving me the popup option of ** IF I WANT TO SAVE THE PASSWORD FOR THIS SITE OR NOT**. This is proving to be a big problem because there are sites where I do not want the passwords to be saved but since I do not get the popup option, the password get saved. I would appreciate your help in this regard.

I am using Firefox 28, and either hitting the key combo CTRL+SHIFT+T, or right clicking on the tabs section and choosing "Undo Close Tab" do not work. I have restarted Firefox in Safe mode, with the same result. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox with no fix to this problem. I am not using Tab Mix Plus. Under about:config, both browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo are set to default values. Is there another config file or any other option that may control this setting..?

Thanks.

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.
