Why can I no longer send links to websites? Clicking File>Send Link doesn't work nor does right clicking on the mouse. Both worked prior to Firefox 6. I also can't send emails to websites that don't spell out their address but instead say "to send an email click here". Everything works fine in Chrome and Safari but not in Firefox.

Firefox setup detected as trojan horse Dropper.Generic8.BMWS by AVG when moving to folder

I was cleaning up my desktop by moving my unused files to organized folders, example being OriginalGameName being dragged into Games; and I happened to have an AVG virus scan running in the backround at the same time. I created a folder named installers, and dragged in Firefox_Setup.exe first. AVG immediately launched a warning window, saying it was a trojan and giving me an option to remove it.

Of course, why would the installer of my favourite internet browser include a Trojan Horse?  I mean, my Firefox browser works fine and I also just so happen to be posting this on Firefox.

I was instantly suspicious, and opened up SpyBot Search & Destroy and scanned. No results, so the AVG window seemed to be safe. I clicked the option on the AVG window to remove the alleged Trojan Horse, then scanned again with SpyBot to make sure that it wasn't the type of fake AVG warning window's that installs a trojan after an option is chosen.

So yes, I'm sure that I haven't gotten a fake AVG warning. And yes, I downloaded the installer from the site. 

I am also rather paranoid about virus's, and I have two different antivirus's that I scan with every time I visit a unfamiliar website or download anything and I am generally wary when browsing the internet. I know I've given a large amount of information, but I'm trying to save you from having to ask a million questions about the information I left out. I know there's a post similar to this, but I feel that the other post didn't include enough information leading to unsatisfactory answers. Info dump over.

I am running 13.0.1 on windows 7 and i have adblock and download helper. Since the recent update to firefox the youtube suggestions that appear on the right side of the page do not load properly. WHen the page 1st opens the suggestions are there but seconds later only a clear white box appears. I conducted a google search and found that i should check aboutconfig and change a setting to true. Well the setting was already on true so thats not the issue and i made no other changes. Firefox is a great product and i have never had any issues. I must say however that this youtube thing is pretty annoying. Any suggestions on how to fix?

I have Firefox 13.0.1 installed (also tried the beta, 14 or whatever) and I can't play movies on Netflix. Silverlight is up-to-date, everything is up-to-date, but it doesn't work. It goes to that page that says,

"Complete System Requirements

To watch instantly, youll need a computer that meets the following minimum requirements:

   Windows
       Windows XP with Service Pack 2, Vista or Windows 7
       Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher; or Firefox 3 or higher; or Chrome 7 or higher
       1.2 GHz processor
       512 MB RAM
   Mac
       An Intel-based Mac with OS 10.4.11 or later
       Safari 3 or higher; or Firefox 3 or higher; or Chrome 10 or higher
       1 GB RAM
   Chrome OS
       A Google Chromebook with Chrome OS 13 or higher"

But if I open and try it in Google Chrome, it goes just fine. I'm on Windows 8 Release Preview, and it's a 64bit system. Firefox is 32bit, of course. I don't know what else I can possibly try to get Netflix to work in Firefox. Chrome is fine, but Firefox is my default browser, and I wish I didn't have to switch over every time just for Netflix.

I am running Firefox 13.0.1 on a Mac Powerbook under Mac OS 10.7.4. Firefox seems to download the files very nicely, but when I try to open them, I have gotten the error message "File does not exist" and it mentions my download folder. There's more to that error message, but I don't remember and I can't reproduce it. Now I'm getting "Preview can't open the .pdf" or "File not recognized". I've disabled the Adobe Acrobat NPAPI plugin, and that hasn't helped the problem. Safari downloads the same files just fine, so it seems to be a Firefox problem. Please help!

Thanks, Amerie

Hi Firefox team. I do not have question, but have some comment. I expect when you uninstall FF it should keep the content of "Downloads" which may have some valuable stuff, which has nothing to do with FF itself. But I would expect the crap "extensions" like "PriceGong" should be deleted!

And I would put clear comments in help how to remove that carp, which usually forcefully installed.

Thanks Best regards Mike

As of today the "reply" button in the comment section on any youtube video has stopped working, Usually it brings up an input field when clicked, but now I get nothing except a blue glow around the button (cropped picture of what I see)

So far I have attempted the following with no success

  • restarting firefox
  • restarting the computer
  • reinstalling latest version of flash

The button works if I access a video page through internet explorer, but I despise that browser.

I have Firefox 13.0.1 on Mac OS X. A few days ago, Google pages started loading very slowly (taking several minutes to perform a search or open Gmail). I have had no problems with Safari -- Google pages load instantly there. And the ONLY site that I'm having problems with on Firefox is Google. I tried clearing my cache as someone suggested. That didn't work. I've tried disabling my extensions and plug-ins but that didn't help either. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
