I have looked at an attempted all the suggestions re. this and cannot locate my bookmarks and passwords on the old hard drive. Hard drive is still connected to my computer, though the PC has had a mother brd, CPU and RAM upgrade: Because of the upgrade could not load window, though the Windows file is still available. New HDD with windows installed, New install. of FF 11.0. Following search suggestions I can find the new Profile, but not the one on the old drive. I can access my Mozilla file in Program Files (x86), but find now appdata etc. Yes, I know, it was really stupid not to backup this stuff before the new hardware install, but didn't think the hardware change was going hose my W7 install so badly. Thanks for any help in advance.

I have updated to 11.0, windows vista. I didn't notice or have this problem before the update. for example if I have firefox open and click on my calculator, the only way I can see it is to minimize firefox. I cannot alt-tab to it nor can I click the icon in my status bar of windows.??? I have looked through the settings, I didn't see an always on top option, but that's what it seems like.

Any and all info will be appreciated.

TIA, Jim

If I restart my browser everthing works just fine for at least 5 minutes. When I watch several youtube videos, the lag comes back and the video starts to freeze aboud every second for just a faction of a second. The sound is stil played properly it only affects the graphics... After about 10 minutes watching videos the whole browser gets laggy . Sometimes when I type the fonts appear only about a second later. Scrolling is also affected. Some minutes later everything is back to normal but it't not allways like that?!

I don't know what to do, I allready restarted with add-ons disabled but I didn't notice any difference. The drivers of my ati graphics card are up-to-date and I only have the problem with firefox, chrome works perfectly.

Regards, Jan

Upgraded from FC15 to FC16. Firefox upgraded to version 11.0. Everything seemed to be okay post-upgrade (which happened on the 5th). This morning it had crashed and would not start even in safe-mode.

from yum log:
Apr 05 09:44:51 Updated: firefox-11.0-1.fc15.x86_64
Apr 09 08:06:22 Installed: firefox-11.0-1.fc16.x86_64

Removed/reinstalled Firefox. Tried a manual install, and firefox will not run.

./firefox
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/jrmuir/firefox/libxpcom.so:
libxul.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.

But both libxpcom.so and libxul.so exist, which doesn't make much sense. Based off an strace I'd say that it's looking everywhere ld.so.conf/cache indicate but skipping the install directory (which is the cwd when initiating the run).

Loss of Mouse Scroll Wheel Function

I took a leap and a leap of faith upgrading from Firefox 3.something to 11.0. I'm working through the little annoying differences in the user interface, but I'm having a problem with scrolling.

I can't put my finger on any particular web site or page size, but I find that occasionally my mouse scroll wheel will stop working with Firefox and I must use the scroll bar to move through a document. Once it goes, it's gone. I can move to another tab that previously scrolled with the wheel and it no longer does.

If I close Firefox and restart it, the scroll wheel works again (even with the page on which it previously quit. If I leave Firefox running but switch to another application, the scroll wheel works there, so it's unlikely that the driver has become corrupted.

I'm running Windows XP SP3 and Firefox 11.0 (downloaded and installed 4/5/2012)

Hi, I have firefox redirecting this address http://cureyourimmunesystemnow.com/ to this one: http://cureyourimmunsystemnow.com/wp

I thought it was a cpanel or WP problem and have spent ages trying to solve it. Finally I wiped all my hard work (everything) clean and started all over again - a second time! But still it keeps happening. I only just accidentally discovered though - that it works on every other browser - except firefox. Not only that - it does the same for other firefox users. What's going on? I have had months trying to get my site back online and now I find Firefox is the culprit. What's the reason?

Can't Scroll Inside Drop Down Menus

I just got a new HP laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit), installed Firefox 11 (now updated to 12), and discovered that when using the track pad (Synaptics Touch Pad v8.1. Driver provided by Synaptics, version 15.3.29.0 dated 10/13/2011), I can not scroll inside drop down menus.

To replicate, go to this link: http://sacramento.craigslist.org/sss/

Click the drop down for the category to search. Use the track pad to scroll the list. Mine closes the list and returns focus to the browser instead of scrolling the list. It then scrolls the browser window instead. This works fine in IE. Things I have tried:

Safe mode Unchecking smooth scrolling Unchecking autoscrolling Unchecking hardware acceleration

And just about any of the various combinations of the above things. I also tried restarting Firefox each time I made a change. Nothing seems to solve this issue.

Oddly enough, if there is a text window inside the page (like the on I am writing this in), I can scroll that just fine. Once I move my mouse out of the box, it scrolls the main page just fine. I don't think it's a matter of the focus following the mouse, it has something to do with scrolling drop down boxes specifically it seems.

Also, I should note that all the pages I have problems with work fine in IE the way they SHOULD work in Firefox.

Before I begin, I would like to say that I have the current version of Adobe Flash, and that all other websites that require flash work just fine (YouTube, Facebook, A few other video sites, Pandora, etc)

Whenever I try to play something on the myspace video player, it displays a message something along the lines of "Flash is unavailable for playback. Your Flash version is: 11.2.202 To proceed, try the following:Refreshing the Page, Restarting your Browser, Upgrading your Flash Player"

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Flash (both the software and the plugin), and Firefox with no avail. Right now, I have to use IE to play anything off of myspace and it pisses me off, simply because I hate IE (I don't use Chrome, and who doesn't hate IE?)

My system specs are: Athlon II 2.6Ghz quad core 4gb of RAM ATI Radeon HD 4550 512mb DDR3 Graphics Card

The following error comes up when I try to install the updated Firefox: "The operation can’t be completed because some items had to be skipped. For each item, choose File > Get Info, make sure “Locked” is deselected, and then check the Sharing & Permissions section. When you are sure the items are unlocked and not designated as Read Only or No Access, try again."

When I follow the instructions in the error message, it shows that my user name has read and write access. There are a couple other items that are read only. I tried to change this to read and write, but the Sharing and Permissions options are greyed out and will not let me change them. What is the work around for this? I would really like to install the new firefox.

Thanks.

I always used Firefox 11 without problems due to plugins (just my crappy hardware), but when I updated to newer version of Flash Player, nothing worked anymore on Firefox, but in Chrome everything goes perfect. I've also tried to reinstall the plugin, the stable and also the beta version, using Flash-Aid but nothing worked. Is there another solution to fix this issue?

Thanks from Italy!
