Whenever I visit a page that contains even the smallest of Flash objects, Firefox stops responding briefly and then a dialogue pops up to say that Shockwave Flash has crashed. I have tried all of the fixes I have found on other questions: I have reset Firefox, run it in Safe Mode, disabled all extensions, reinstalled both Firefox and Flash, downgraded both Firefox and Flash and turned off Flash's "Protective Mode" etc. The problem only seems to have come about after I upgraded to Firefox 20 yesterday if that is of any help. Flash also crashes on IE and doesn't work properly on Chrome (YouTube does not play sound for example). I have run out of ideas and I was wondering if anyone has anything that I could try. Thanks in advance for any answers!

I can provide a screenshot to help illustrate my problem. Every page I load has numerous ad boxes embedded into the page from "Ads by Browse to Save". Does anyone else have this problem? Is this something that firefox added to their browser or do I have a malware problem? (I see no option to post a screenshot of the problem, as is advised on the community help homepage. Maybe I will have that option once my question is posted.)

I'm running FF 20.2 on Mac OS X 10.8.3. I recently found that item in drop-down menu cannot be selected by clicking, although it can be selected by hitting "enter" on keyboard. I have no add-ons installed so that shouldn't be the problem. Like go to http://www.newegg.com/ and click search menu, I can't select any options. Thanks for your help in advance.

Basically whenever I open a new tab 'Delta ALWAYS comes up' as the default search! :(

I have reset Firefox. I have reset to blank and to Mozilla as default. I don't understand your instructions about malware (but is it???) resetting and too nervous in messing up my laptop to try ! :(

I now detest Delta Search and want it totally removed forever.

Nothing gets rid of it.

How do I set downloads to automatically save instead of prompting me to open them?

I recently reset Firefox. Before whenever I downloaded a file, it automatically prompted me if I wanted to open the file or save it to my computer, with saving it to my computer preselected. This was fine because I almost never want to open these downloads automatically, and I like all my downloads to go into my downloads folder on a separate drive with much more space (not the temp folder on C:\). The option "do this automatically for files like this from now on" was useful for the rare file type that I would want to open automatically (usually because it's a very small music file or something).

Now every time I download virtually any file type, the prompt comes up with 'open the file' preselected, and "do this automatically for files like this from now on" greyed out. As a result, on more than one occasion, I have mistakenly clicked ok and opened huge files automatically after downloading (which has resulted in them popping open even hours later and playing automatically once the download finished). I'd like to be able to select "save it to my computer" and have it do this automatically, but that option is greyed out.

The help available seems to suggest going into options>Applications and changing the action for the appropriate content type, but: (a) not all the content types I download are listed, i.e. .mov, .mpeg, .rar, etc. (b) changing the action for the content types I do have (.wmv and compressed/zipped folder only) has done absolutely nothing.

I'm still prompted for each and every file I download, still preselected to open the file, with the "do this automatically for files like this from now on" still greyed out.

I'd like to change it to the way I had before, or at the very least automatically set all downloads to save into my downloads folder.

3 days ago I was trying to watch videos on youtube and i kept getting adobe flash player crash error. i went ahead and updated to firefox 20.0.1 and i updated to flash player 11.7. still getting the error. Ive clean installed both since. I've reverted to older versions even the 10.3 listed on Firefox Troubleshooting guide. Nothing seems to work.
