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'm using Firefox 41 for Linux 64 bit and I need to communicate over a proxy requiring authentication. I have to enter username and password after each start of Firefox. I found at this forum that setting of the following things in about:config would help but it does not:

network.negotiate-auth.allow-proxies : false network.proxy.share_proxy_settings  : false network.automatic-ntlm-auth.allow-proxies : false network.auth.use : false signon.autologin.proxy : true

So is there any way how to save the credentials to avoid repeated prompting for them in each new Firefox session?

Thank you for your help, Martin

Hi all, so since a few versions I have noticed a difference in video buffering. Firefox now buffers a very small amount of a video, like it does when mediasource extensions are turned on. I did turn them off however so videos were usually downloaded automatically all the way, which was very convenient for me, instead of just when you play the video the next few seconds. This doesn't work anymore as if I enabled mediasource extensions and every video used it.

Is there some way to revert that behaviour? I guess it was done out of performance reasons. How can I change it back, e.g. make the video buffer bigger?

Thanks a lot

I noticed that just about every time i start my computer and open Nightly I get a download popup to download the OpenH264 codec by Cisco. I did and I noticed that there was an entry for it in the Plugins section of the Add-Ons Manager and it states 'Will be installed shortly'. What it had me download was a zip file that contained two files. One that gave a short explaination of the codec and a libgmpopenh264.so file. Now I have no clue what to do with the .so file to get it installed into Nightly.

Is anyone else having this issue and what can I do about it? I am running Xubuntu 14.04 64-bit.

I am using Firefox version 33.0 with an Ubuntu 14.04 LTS operating system. I get a 403- Forbidden: access is denied message when trying to access my Microsoft Outlook Web App (OWA) email. When I use another computer running Firefox version 33.1.1 with a Window 7 operating system, I can access my Microsoft Outlook Web App email perfectly. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get my Firefox browser on the Ubuntu machine to be able to access my email on OWA?

I have updated my Firefox to the latest stable release 57 in a windows machine. I would like to know if TLS 1.2 is already enabled in my browser or do i need to make any changes in the default setup in order to make it active.

When i check "security.tls.version.min" it's shown "Value 1". Is that the right value to TLS 1.2 ?

Kindly advise.

Flash plugin detected but not working (Firefox 22 on Linux)

Hi all,

I can't get the flash plugin to work. It's installed, detected in about:plugins, but when I visit adobes's test page at http://www.adobe.com/fr/shockwave/welcome/ , I just get the usual " you need a plugin to view this content" thing.

This happenned since I migrated from Mageia 1 to Mageia 2, and still doesn't work on Mageia 3, which uses Firefox 17 ESR. I then downloaded and installed Firefox 22 directly from Mozilla, still with no luck. I've reset my profile, tried to use an empty profile, tried disabling all add-ons, still no luck.

about:plugins displays this:

   File : libflashplayer.so
   Path : /opt/firefox/browser/plugins/libflashplayer.so
   Version : 11,2,202,297
   State : Enabled
   Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202

This is the most up-to-date flash version available from Adobe.

Another thing is that this machine is a 32 bits install, on an Athlon XP 3000+ with a Radeon X1650 graphics card. Surprisingly, on another machine, using the same distro but with a 64 bits install, Flash works well.

I'm out of ideas now, so any hint would be welcome. Thank you.

I am not a computer geek and I think I want a simple thing: when I start Mozilla Firefox I want zoom level to be set automatically at 150%. In another words I want Mozilla Firefox to remember that my preference is 150% zoom level so I do not have to retune it each time I start Mozilla Firefox or open new tab. Is it possible?

As of about firefox 63, it will no longer be possible to prevent firefox from checking for updates as the preference (option) to do so is being removed. In the past, it was simply a matter of setting the option to never check for updates. This is important in an organization as you want everyone to be at the same level. In such organizations, the latest firefox would be obtained once, checked out, then rolled out to the organization from it's support system team/person. Is there going to be a way to prevent the message "an update is available, please install?"
