I upgraded to Lion (so, Mac OS X) and using Firefox 9, together with Quicktime plugin 7.7.1.

When I open http://apple.com/trailers and choose a trailer, you can watch a trailer inline or use a download link. Although the inline works properly, the download never starts, and the external quicktime player doesn't start either.

Using the web developer console, I checked the request: [11:43:21.674] GET http://trailers.apple.com/movies/fox/prometheus/prometheus-tlr1_h480p.mov

And the answer is: [HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily 131ms]

But nothing else changes. Page doesn't reload, nothing moves.

In the preferences, Applications tab, I have all video/quicktime being handled by "Use QuickTime Plug-in 7.7.1".

I tried to change to "Ask" or to use application "Quicktime", but nothing moves :(

Thanks for any information you can give.

I get notices indicating the there are upgrades available but whenever I try to update, it fails. The box showing the update just runs and runs, but never completes. This has happened numerous times. I have Firefox 9.0.1 and it says I am currently on the release update channel. I don't know what that means.

When in firefox using Google maps and click on "EARTH" I receive a window indicating that to use 3D I need to install 21.0 Google Earth Plug-in with a "Download" option to click on. Note: Firefox 21.0 and MAC OS 10.7.5 have all current software updates installed. Safari & Chrome do not request for any plug-ins and 3D Earth option works fine. ANY HELP?

PS. my MAC does have an Intel HD Graphics 3000 installed but my MAC, Safari & Chrome work fine.

I get a "Your connection is not secure" error when trying to log in to my modem's login page at the local address. I have a Cisco DPQ3925 and using Firefox 47.0, Mac OS 10.7.5

Here is the rest of the error text:

"The owner of 192.168.0.1 has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website."

I've just replaced the modem (same brand and model) because I was getting the same error.

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 have an add-on called "WindowShopper" that somehow recently turned up in Firefox (v20.0, Mac OS X 10.7.5). I don't know how it got into Firefox -- *I* certainly didn't add it -- and I can't find it anywhere in "Tools > Add-Ons," "Extensions," "Preferences," or anywhere else. If I could find it, I'd delete it. It's maddening, I loathe it, it's buggy (its "helpful" pop up screens tend to "stick," obscuring the product underneath), and it seems the only way to get rid of it is to go back to using Safari, which I'd rather not do.

Please tell me how I can get rid of this "WindowShopper" add-on.

I have mistakenly downloaded a small 'widget' thing which claimed it could help me by downloading videos etc from websites. It is THE most irritating thing I have ever had on my computer; it pops up right in front of every single e-mail I try to type; obscuring buttons I need to use - it's a small bar which says 'Download' on it - but it is always there where there is NOTHING to download; and by contrast, it does NOT appear on sites where I might like to download a clip - e.g. Youtube & BBC iPlayer. So it is useless, but I CANNOT see how to get rid of it. I looked everywhere on my Mac; in 'widgets'; 'library' etc - cannot see it anywhere. Someone suggested it may be something I downloaded into my Firefox browser; but I cannot see it on the 'add-ons' page here either. Does anyone else know this annoying thing & how to uninstall it?

I downloaded Open Office. Unfortunately I also got a "Video Converter" toolbar I didn't want. I got rid of it using Tools. But I still have a search bar that says (in light grey) "Installl Converter Customized Web Search". It is part of the "Installl Converter Community Toolbar (with three "L"s)". This means that even though I don't see the toolbar anymore, this is still lurking in my MacBook Pro (Mac OS X, 10.7.5). How can I get rid of this? Thank you!

Until the most recent update the dropdown listing of available sites in the search box was easily legible and simple to use. Being able to target one's searches so readily and conveniently was one of Firefox's most attractive features.

Now I'm confronted with a panel of mostly indecipherable and in many cases confusingly similar icons. I hate it and want my simple verbal listing back!

Yes, mousing over the icons and hovering will reveal what they represent. But having to do this every time makes what was a quick, convenient routine irritatingly slow and clunky.

Please at least let us choose whether to have icons or a simple listing. Please...

I've added extra pinned site rows and columns on the new tab page. The new search bar is redundant and space hogging. Please provide how to disable in step by step instructions :)

Edit: Answer 1. Go to Firefox Profile Folder (go to about:support in Firefox then click Open folder/Show in Finder to get there) 2. Open or create the chrome folder in the Firefox Profile Folder. 3. Create a blank text file, copy and paste this code into the text file.

@-moz-document url(about:newtab) {

 #newtab-search-container, #newtab-search-logo { display:none !important; } 
 #newtab-margin-top, #newtab-search-container { display:none!important; }
 } 

4. Save it as userContent.css (using ALL FILES under the drop down menu) 5. Place the new css file into the chrome folder.

The proxy server is refusing connections Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections.

   Check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct.
   Contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working.

Ive tried the suggestions on the viewer HELP but to no avail. I have made a moxilla/firefox account but never have i been asked for a username. I have tried my email address but no luck. Also i should mention i am in China, so not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Using Mac OS X 7.5, I updated Firefox when prompted, now Soundcloud widgets say 'data connection failure', direct links to Soundcloud pages don't load but send me to a generic 'something went wrong' page with low-res graphics. Everything else seems to work, including video streams, bandcamp etc.

I have looked at advice here for similar issues - safe restart, clearing cookies and cache don't help. I don't have adblocker or firewall, almost no add-ons, the problem occurred both before and after updating Flash.

Chrome works fine with Soundcloud, so it looks like it is a Firefox issue. Any advice?
