I must have "Active X enabled." How do I do that? (I'm old & don't understand the computer language in answers) ;-(

I have no idea how to even find out if my Active X (whatever that is) is enabled, much less enable it if it isn't. According to the info I'm reading, I have Windows XP wi… (read more)

It's been about a week since I last manage to download from Mediafire. When I click on a Mediafire link, the download link does not show although the page has finish loading. Refreshing the page repeatedly does not help and I've tried the solution to delete all cookies as stated on a similar thread (http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/673873) but it doesn't work either. After deleting all the cookies, clicking on the Myfiles link brings me to Mediafire's main webpage instead. Are there any ways to solve this? =( Please help!

For the past couple of days Firefox always redirects to a blank page when I try to visit any page on www.kongregate.com. When I use IE tab on the blank page it comes up with the url "wyciwyg://#/www.kongregate.com" where # is a number that changes occasionally. I've tried deleting my Firefox cache and uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox with no success. Kongregate.com is the only site I know this to happen on and this is the first time I've seen it do this before. It was fine two days ago and I haven't installed a new add on in months.

I have two profiles for firefox. But sometimes Firefox starts with the first active, sometimes with the second. The question is: How can I force firefox to use the profile "default" as the default profile on startup when there is no other instance running? When I want to use a second profile in parallel I use the command "firefox -P --no-profile" to start the profile selector.

I've tried installing flash player a dozen times, with both the instructions on the adobe page and the mozilla page. I'm running Fedora Core 11 with Mozilla 3.5.9. I've gotten "libflashplayer.so" and copied it to every "mozilla/plugins" directory on the drive. It does not work and is not listed when I bring up "tools/add-ons." One instruction said to copy "flashplayer.xpt" to the "mozilla/commponents" directory, but the download included no such file and I have no such directory. (Probably pertains to an older version.) I've tried downloading it with the .tar, .gzip, and yum; all with the same result. It doesn't work online and doesn't show up in my plug-ins.

I am running Firefox 50.1.0. Your educated guess about my Firefox version says 3.5.9, which means you can't read it either.

Flickr and many sites say something like "You seem to be using an unsupported browser. To get the most out of Flickr please upgrade to the latest version of Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer." I tried everything online to make Norton firewall let in friendly sites to no avail. I know my OS is old, so is my CPU, and memory's small.
