One hour ago I was happily watching youtube videos under Linux using Firefox 20.0 and flash 11.2. I just updated firefox and it is now blocking my flash and prompting me to update. The problem is I can't update because 11.2 is the LAST flash plugin for firefox, there won't be any other version.

Is there a way to prevent firefox from disabling my plugin?

I was lissening to online radio. Firefox needed to update. After the latest update the windows media player plugin dissapeared from the add-on list, while still being installed correct. I reinstalled it, but that didn't work. I replaced/deleted some files in firefox as suggested for similiar problems, but that didn't work either. Now I can't play wmp files anymore on firefox.

I hope u can help me solve this problem.

I downloaded something from download.com and installed it - it ended up unleashing a world of crap into my computer (malware, etc). I seem to have gotten rid of all of it, except for this Extension that cannot be removed from Firefox called TopArcadeHits.

I've tried restarting Firefox in Safe Mode, using the "Reset" button from the Troubleshooting menu in Firefox, manually going to the Extensions folders in the Firefox install directories, and completely uninstalling and re-installing Firefox, being sure to have it wipe out all my bookmarks, cookies, and customizations in the process - nothing works, this damn extension is still in there. It is disabled, but I want it gone forever. It's kind of weird, a couple of other extensions always stay put too, like Logitech SetPoint and another, which I'm not concerned about - but just odd that those don't get wiped out with the actions I've taken.

How can this be banished from my browser?

Thanks.

When I begin typing the name of a website (expecting FireFox to bring up the URL in the address bar) I'm now getting several BING search results over the links. If I click on one of those search results (with a magnifying glass to the left of the writing) I'm taking to a Bing Search Results page.

Yes, I've tried resetting the Config.

No, I don't seem to have this "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Search Enhancement Pack\Search Helper\" on my system. Or at least not in that location as I'm on Windows 7.

I don't recall updating my system recently and this just started last night. Any help would be appreciated.

What in the world gives??? Can you help? Thank you.

I have upgraded Norton 360 to 2013 on my desktop PC, and now I can't get rid of the Safe Search pane in the Norton Toolbar in Firefox 21. Previously I'd been able to turn it off.

I can't find a button on the toolbar (I checked the circle logo), and no options in the Norton Settings, and I've tried to find something on this via Symantec but had no luck, except being asked to join the Norton Family service when I don't have any children!

Can I edit Firefox About:Config to get rid of it? I have Firefox 23 on my laptop, which I upgraded from Firefox 14 immediately after I'd upgraded 360 to 2013 (the day before my desktop), which also had the Safe Search pane removed before the installation, and that is unchanged. Both run on XP SP3.

I can't believe that simply upgrading Firefox again to 23 will fix this, as there is no Options button on the Norton Toolbar running on the laptop either, and obviously the Settings options in 360 are identical.

Thanks

I've been using the DjVu plugin for years, without issue. It worked fine yesterday. As of this morning, it has vanished from Firefox.

Multiple downloads, installs, uninstalls, restarts and reboots later, and I still have no DjVu in Firefox 21.

It works in IE 10, so it is installed on my Windows 7 64bit system. I don't want to use IE 10 to view the old newspapers that are a primary part of my research. The only way to view them is with DjVu.

Why - what is wrong - where is it? Can't even find the plugin to add from the add-ons page.

Please - someone point me to a fix.

I am currently using a datepicker from jQuery UI 1.10 with a select dropdown so that the user can choose year. The "yearpicker" works just fine in other browsers, but in FF21 (i have yet only tested it in this version) it does not work at all. It's like clicking a select-box with no options; the menu does not open and i cannot change the selected option with arrow-keys on my keyboard. It's just static.

I have read some other related posts about similar issues, and the tips given does not solve my problem (like restarting in safe mode, disable all add-ons, disable hardware accelerator, etc). I have also checked for solutions in disabling windows shadow options, but with no success. Since this only appears in FF i assume that this is not an issue with jQuery UI. This looks more like an issue with FF, and due to the history of problems with select-boxes it could be something old that is coming back.

All drag-and-drop features stopped working on my FF 21.

That is, I can no longer: - Drag items to bookmarks or rearrange the bookmarks - Drag words to the search box or links to the URL box - Change the order of tabs - Rearrange items on toolbars - Move text in text boxes - etc.

Safe mode exhibits the same problems.

Please advise.

The last couple of versions of Firefox have seemingly been more permissive in the popup allowing. If I go to http://www.popuptest.com/popuptest12.html, all three popups open with a simple window.open() JavaScript call. The only one that gets blocked is when I click the back button. Shouldn't the ones that open automatically be the ones that get blocked? I've gotten quite a few ad popups, and it's making me wonder if window.open() is being ignored now.
