I have got Cameras installing at my work place. Earlier I have got no problem with downloading the plug-in and opening the site to see all the cameras. However yesterday I reinstall windows and firefox again. Now I try clicking on the link to download the plug-in but nothing happen at all. (As of the picture below, normally when I click on "Please click here to download and install the plug-in. Close the browser when installing the plug-in." the plug-in should be downloaded)

However nothing happen now.

I try using other browser to download and install then in "Plugin", I choose "install add on from file", it said "This addon cannot be install because it appear to be corrupt" Below is the picture of the addon I downloaded (I try twice)

What must I do? PS. I try using "add images" below but it kept loading non stop for over 15 minutes already, so I try posting image in image hosting instead.

When moving windows between my laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad P50) to my secondary monitor (Dell...can't find any model number on it but have had it a few years), Firefox goes black. If I move it back to my laptop window, it is restored. I'm running Windows10 and this is brand new laptop and I'm finding all sorts of graphics challenges using Windows10 in general (fonts too large, fonts too small, etc., with various programs) so I'm sure it is graphics related. Closing Firefox and reopening (on the secondary screen) fixes the problem.

I just updated to 49.0

When I typed "googlemail.com" into a tab and hit enter, then immediately switch to another tab to load something or browse something else - I waited for the "googlemail.com" tab to finish loading and then clicked back on it - the page showed a small spinning loading icon in the middle of the page before all the content appeared

Does this have any impact on page loading performance?

I checked the release notes and had a quick look through my FF settings and about:config but I couldn't find any way to disable this

The problem may be (partly) running 2 live streams at once. Has anyone encountered this before?

I have you tried disabling the protected mode feature of the Flash player plugin to no avail. I reenabled it.

Now, running only 1 live stream, it is not crashing.

Thank you. Robert Allen Leeper

I am using Firefox 49 with windows 10. For some time I have been experiencing black squares and blacked out areas in search results and webpages. If I scroll down the page and then scroll back up or if I refresh the page, the problem disappears. I have tried updating the display drivers, and have tried uninstalling and re-installing firefox.

I would like to always open a cached offline version of a bookmarked page that I open in Firefox.

Rationale:

Viewing an offline copy of my favourite (bookmarked) websites is sufficient for me and makes it needless to fetch it again from the server, thus conserving energy.

Since I upgraded to the latest version of Firefox and the latest Flash plugin on my Windows 8 laptop I can't see video on espn.com or espnfc.com. It just displays white and I can only hear the audio. I have no issues with playing videos on other sites.

I turned off my Adblock to see if it was the problem. The ad played just fine but then I get white for the video and only hear audio. Therefore I don't think that's the problem. Any thoughts?

Hello!

When opening links to HTML5 videos, I can watch them as they load but as soon as the video is fully buffered/downloaded, it either dissapears or shows a "unloaded image placeholder"-icon, depening on source. This issue doesn't seem to happen on sites such as Youtube - I've only ever seen it on sites hosting gif-esque HTML5 videos, such as the following: http://i.imgur.com/u9oX1hD.gifv .

Whenever this playback issue happens, a message from Mozilla shows on the top of the page, reading "To improve video quality, you may need to install Microsoft's Media Feature Pack", and a link to this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-video-audio-problems-firefox-windows?as=u&utm_source=inproduct . This all started to happen after the Anniversary update.

My version of Windows 10 is an N-version, meaning the media features of the default windows are not preinstalled. The issue is that I HAVE installed the Media Feature Pack already, and if I try to download the latest and install again it says that it's already up-to-date.

I can't seem to find any other threads about this particular issue. I can provide further details I have not been clear enough about my issue, or if there's any kinds of test you'd like me to do.

Thanks, Towkin

I heard about multiprocess support (Electrolysis) when Firefox 48 came out and was hoping to be able to use it, but it kept telling me that it was disabled by addons. Being as it was just rolling out, I decided to wait until the next big update before trying to enable it again.

When the Firefox 49 update came out today I made sure that all my addons were supported and then updated. However, even now it still says disabled by addons, even in Safe Mode.

Is there something else I have to switch on in about:config? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

For ages my FF has saved and auto-installed usernames and passwords. I do change my passwords from time to time and they got updated without a problem.

However, this last few weeks, though I get asked if I want to update when I changed a password, and I click yes, it doesn't and the old passwords remain in the list.

I've checked everything I can see to check according to your other advice and all seems in order.

Any suggestions? It's getting really irritating!
