My question is similar to "Java Plug-in for JRE7u21?" but all the suggestions there that worked are for Windows, and I'm on a Mac, and I don't want to hijack that thread. For the record, that thread is /questions/958847. aw

I have Mac OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion, Firefox 24.0, which says it's up to date, and Java 7 update 45, also up to date. I only want answers for Mac OS X, not Windows, not Linux.

The online Java test works OK in Safari but not in Firefox. Firefox thinks Java is not installed. There's no "Java Applet Plug-in" in the plug-ins list.

Since Safari is OK, I assume there's a bug in Firefox. Can we narrow it down by identifying which combinations of versions (of Mac OS X, Firefox and Java) have the Java plug-in and which don't?

Using Firefox version 19.0.2 on MAC. Appears message: "Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party. Are you sure you want to continue sending this information?" In preferences there is no option to choose what warning messages display or not display. Through about:config tried to change security.warn is set to 'false' by default; security.warn_viewing_mixed - too set by default to 'false'.

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.

Some months ago Firefox started prompting when i went into full screen mode : Allow or deny - it's irritating. I wantt o allow always without the prompt.

I know about Tools>page info>permissions but that is only url by url.

I found something that worked in here before, but it seems to have reset when firefox restarted. And i can't find the method this time around!

Thanks

This is really more of a philosophical question than a technical one, but I thought I'd mention it. While investigating ways to improve my browsing speed in general, I even found a Bugzilla ticket from 2004 debating this issue.

While I understand Mozilla wants to reduce the number of problems end users have, turning this option on in my browser has greatly increased the speed by which major websites load.

Since I'm asking, I would like to make sure. I'm currently using a web proxy and have both "network.http.pipelining" and "network.http.proxy.pipelining" set to TRUE. Is this the appropriate way to enable this feature?

Thanks In Advance.
