My You Tube won't open either from original site or redirected videos, saying "Server not found". This occurs through Firefox, Chrome and Safari alike. I use Mac Book Pro OS X 10.8.5 I recently had a very intrusive YAHOO Browser take over the scenario without warning and didn't allow my normal Google search. I got rid of Yahoo apparently...but it affected this You tube issue it seems ? What to do ? Cheers

My team of teachers has a frequently used google doc that we share. My firefox will not allow me to bookmark this doc. I can still bookmark other pages and the rest of my team can bookmark this page.

There is no error message, it behaves as if I hadn't tried to bookmark it at all.

Why this site specific problem on only my computer?

Thanks for any help

My bookmarks toolbar disappeared when I entered fullscreen mode and it never reappeared. I've checked and unchecked the option to make the toolbar visible under "view," to zero effect. What gives?

First one line appeared in red at bottom of browser page. A few hours later, a duplicate line in red appeared beneath the first line. This is shortening the browser page and is annoying to look at. I fear it will keep replicating itself and eventually take up the whole page. Help!

Ever since updating firefox, Youtube's appearance is black, bars and videos are out of of place and a few aspects of the site are not working properly. I can send a screen shot if that helps? It works fine on Safari and all other websites are working fine but not youtube.

I was able to load and watch YouTube videos yesterday. This evening, having touched nothing, suddenly ANY video I try to load is just black, no controls available, no error messages, no sound. Just a black rectangle. The rest of the site behaves normally. I tried upgrading to 47 and this did nothing. I also tried installing the YouTube Flash Player add-on (which seemed like a dubious approach anyway) and this did nothing.

The only error messages I see in the console are "SyntaxError: missing ) in parenthetical" and "TypeError: g.p(...) is not a function."

Any ideas? Nothing I search for on Google yields useful results from any time recently. I don't want to use Safari or Chrome just to watch YouTube. Thanks in advance.

Is data replaced or merged? How is conflicting data managed (same preference key but with divergent setting)?

This "Firefox Sync" feature seems to be rather poorly documented—or I just don't know where to look for the detailed information I'm seeking and there are not any obvious links from the 'regular' support pages.


I have multiple devices, all of which have been setup and in use for some time. I would like to merge the bookmarks and other data, but I've had bad experiences in the past with other sync services resulting in significant losses so I'm wary; especially when there is really absolutely NO useful/helpful information about what happens to data (on both/all devices) when a new device is added...

Any information will be helpful and greatly appreciated!

Firefox is garbage for editing Facebook posts and comments.

It's 2015 and we are up to what, version 845, because major versions only count and minors don't, like that makes a difference, and I can't write a post in a text editor and paste it into Facebook through Firefox. What gets pasted is not what I wrote and copied to the clipboard. I can't edit a comment or a post without it being garbled. Basic editing does not work in Firefox/Facebook. I don't know if this is Facebook crappy javascript or Firefox, but I do know that I can do what I set out to do on Chrome.

I opened an account at Saudi Arabian British Bank and when I attempt to set up on-line banking, I get the message that my system does not support 128 bit encryption. I'm using Mozilla Foxfire on a MacBook Pro with OS X Version 10.8.5. I can access my US bank, credit cards and other secure sites, but not SABB? How can I fix this without installing Netscape or Internet Explorer?
