Before installing the Firefox v3.6, my quicktime plugin was working. After I installed v3.6, the quicktime plugin didn't work. I tried to uninstall v3.6 and installed back v3.5, but the quicktime plugin is still not working. How can I make it work again or how to fix this? Thanks.

Is there a way to undo the installation of Firefox v3.6, meaning to remove any traces of Firefox 3.6 installation, because this problem only came after I installed Firefox 3.6.

I'm able to play streaming videos from websites (e.g. http://www.singingsuccess.tv/videos/?vid=251) BEFORE I installed v3.6. AFTER installing v3.6, the streaming video now shows a blue Q with a question mark in the center. I tried to uninstall that version and install back v3.5, but the problem still exist.

Thank you and hoping for your prompt reply. More power.

Firefox memory leak

At the end of my rope with Firefox now. I've tried using Chrome, but it's buggy as hell with some of my sites and logmein doesn't work well on it (I telecommute a lot). IE is pants as well, because... well, it's IE (no extensions, no bookmarks toolbar etc etc)

So - after much experimentation, and using Chrome/Firefox about 50/50 I've ditched Chrome altogether. However, I'm frustrated as all hell that Mozilla appear to be completely ignoring the obvious memory issues that have been plaguing FF for aeons now. 3.6 is unusable after about six hours - memory use constantly rises to around 380Mb, then maxes out one of my cores and the browser hangs completely. That's every signle version of 3.6 I've tried.

3.5.x is a little better - I generally get around 18-20 hours' use out of it before the browser hangs and I have to restart it. I need to leave multiple windows open for various monitoring systems - it's a major, major pain in the arse to have to restart it (especially since it takes about 30 seconds to close it down then kill the (inevitable) hung process in task manager then start everything up again.

I have tried leaving FF open overnight with anywhere from between one to five tabs/windows open - but every single time I check after they've been open about a day, sure as eggs is eggs FF has crashed. I've done all the usual crap (I wasted days if not weeks on it before I got so pisse doff I went over to Chrome) like disabling all add-ons, running FF in safe mode, checking all my plugins are up to date etc etc etc - none of this had any effect.

It's insane - I have the fastest PC I've ever used at home (quad core running at 2.6Gh, 12Gb RAM, Win 7 x64) yet I'm still using a browser that feels and performs like it was written in the stone age.

Since I see dozens of other threads around similar to this - often with boilerplate responses from Mozilla volunteers condescendingly telling people to disable their antivirus client or start stopping processes one-by-one to try and find something else to blame - I don't expect there will be any official assistance or advice, but has anyone else figured out a way to get FF to stay well-behaved after being open for an extended period of time?

I have the following HTML up at my website: <audio src="gnoss.ogg" controls autoplay> <bgsound src="gnoss.mid"> </audio> When I load the website from my webserver into Firefox, a blank control box shows up and nothing plays. When I load the very same site from my local disk into Firefox, everything functions perfectly. The website also functions perfectly in Chrome, both from the webserver and from my local disk.

Recently Firefox has started doing something extremely annoying - activating something called quick links whenever I use an apostrophe ('). The only way I have found to disable it is to go into about:config and add a boolean to disable it, but when I restart Firefox it goes back to the default settings. This is incredibly annoying because damnit, I want to use proper grammar and punctuation in my posts and this thing won't let me! I never asked to turn it on since Ctrl-F does the same thing, it is a redundant feature that has a stupid trigger. I'm seriously switching to Chrome over this, but I'm hoping I can solve the problem first...

I suddenly cannot insert attachments to outgoing emails in Windows Live Hotmail. If I click on attachments or any other tool in the insert bar, nothing happens. My wife's hot mail account on the same computer, using the same version of Firefox, works fine; my account works fine when I use Internet Explorer instead of Firefox. How can I fix this?

Thanks for any help.

Bookmarks sidebar always opens automatically in new page. If I click View/Sidebar/Bookmarks...I can uncheck Bookmarks, but that defeats the purpose of not having it open in the first place.

Is there a separate Firefox setting that controls this function?

I recently installed Homestead Website software. As soon as the software was installed a program called "my security shield" keeps giving pop-ups that say viruses are trying to affect email lists, and everything else. I clicked on the button that said "remove viruses" expecting to get a window asking if i want to pay and download an anti virus program. What i get is an error page saying the program cannot gain access to the internet. I delete the program from my "all Programs" screen but can't find it in my list of programs when i go to add or remove programs in the control panel.
