Hi. Today I was having trouble with Firefox being sluggish and crashing/freezing every time I played a Facebook game. It kept telling me to download the updated flash which I have done about 6 times today. It still will not recognize I have it. I looked in my control panel under Flash and I see the following: Active X version 15.0.0.0.152 NPAPI plug in version 15.0.0.152. PPAPI plug in version not installed. (I looked that up and it seems that is not for my Windows XP. The flash player I installed was 15X32_mssd_aaa_aih(i).exe. That is the manual I was asked to download on support.mozilla.org...then it gave me a specific plug in. Even though I knew I had it, I did attempt to download the plugin. It gets to 66% download complete then error application in use occurs (because I already have it) and it automatically opens Window IE to retry. I know for a fact I have the most updated version. For some reason Firefox just will not recognize it. I've restarted my computer. Earlier I reset Firefox and regave permissions on my plug ins. I have honestly done ever single fix I can do. Help please. I am going to lose my religion if this aggravates me any further! Thanks y'all. Oh and as you can see down there, it is saying I have Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 12.0.5.146 which is not true. My control panel, Flash section disagrees and says I have 15.0.0.152.

I was able to use ebay last night without any problems. But today it does not work.

When I try to go to http://www.ebay.com I get the "The connection was reset" page and I get this in the URL bar: "https://signin.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?SignIn&UsingSSL=1&siteid=0&co_partnerId=2&pageType=2050601&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2F".

When I click "Try Again" It either reloads the reset connection page or I get "waiting for signin.ebay.com" at the bottom left for a while then it takes me to the account sign in page on ebay.

If I click the link to ebay.com on the page I go back to the reset connection page, if I try to sign in I go to the reset connection page and this goes in the URL bar: "https://signin.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?co_partnerId=2&siteid=0&UsingSSL=1".

I can go to ebay.com using Chrome but if I go to the sign in page I get "This page is not available"

What gives?

For years I have been daily bypassing my opening sign in page and going directly to my email page and using bookmark to get to certain websites.

Suddenly yesterday, I have to sign in every time I open and the one bookmark to Ancestry/com gets me to Ancestry.com but not the right page.

Ancestry.com says they have made no changes and think the problem must originate with Mozilla and as my now have the sign in problem, which has nothing to do with Ancestry.com, started at the same time, I too think my two problems must originate with Mozilla.

how do i correct these two problems?

"This Connection is Untrusted You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.google.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure. Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. What Should I Do? If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided.

I went to my collections of themes in add on, picked one, the art work did not show up, I tried another after another, closed the browser, etc.. I read the article and that did not help. Right now I have a bright white with hard to read yellow text. Windows 7, newest Firefox. What do I try?

Clicking a link in e-mail (MAC Mail) will open FF and direct to page, IF Firefox is closed. Fine. However, if FF is already running, clicking the link only brings FF to the forefront, but does not open a new tab, nor does the link populate in the current tab window. The only way to make it work is to right click to get the "Quick Look URL", then open that page.

I can usually click text-links, but button links are unclickable since the last update. For instance, buttons like the one that says "Post Question" will not work on firefox. I had to switch over to Opera just to be able to click links. What has also been happening more often since the update is firefox is constantly freezing, turning white and saying "Not responding".
