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.

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

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?

Hello, I have spell checking Disabled in Tools > Options > Advanced. I was recently typing a message in a bulletin board style forum, and suddenly saw the red wiggly line which typically indicates a misspelled word. The forum has no spell check feature. It lasted for 2 or 3 minutes, then stopped.

My current theory is that I accidentally enabled spell checking by inadvertently striking some particular key or keys. However, I can't find any info, which indicates that spell checking can be requested on a one-time basis, via key shortcut. While I think that would be a nice feature, it does not appear to currently exist.

So my questions: Is there such a feature? Does anyone have any idea if this sudden and unintentional spell check behavior might be traced to Firefox?

Thanks for your help :-)

Running Mac OS 10.6.8 Snow Leopard with Firefox 13.0. Was notified that I needed to install Adobe Flash/Shockwave to see video content.

Have loaded and updated to the newest version as of last week but Firefox has become buggy, freezing up but my pointer will still move. I continually get requests from Flashplayer to store data on my machine. Continually get error messages that I have to click DISMISS and the it works normally.

Just a regular PIA. I have uninstalled Flashplayer and the problems disappear but I cannot access a lot of content, especially videos.

IS there any alternative for Mac?


thanks,

Rob

have a corporate laptop that needs to use a corporate proxy when connected via VPN or physically to the corporate network. I use .pac format proxy in option of automatic proxy. When i connect to home network same proxy acts like no proxy, and in corporate lan it work as corporate proxy. But from home network when i connect corporate vpn then something go wrong. I can only access corporate links, not any exernal links like google. When i select RELOAD option in automatic proxy, then i am able to access internal as well as external links also. I assume when i connect to VPN, firefox do not reload proxy which he should be doing whenever netwok change take place, and that should be automatic. I have tried "reloadPAC" option with PrefBar tool, but again it's manual option. I want to automate it, like something done on OS level, which can trigger reload option whenever i connect VPN.

Any suggestion?????
