Browser Firefox 29.0, OS X 10.8.5 I can no longer Quit Firefox and have it happen. When I try to shut down the computer, up comes a message saying I must first close Firefox. Then I use Finder>Applications>Firefox icon and then click on Apple, pick the troublesome application (Firefox 29.0) and choose Force Quit. This is rather irksome as well as cumbersome.

For some reason Google Earth has stopped working in Firefox, and I get a note that I have to download the plug in. (It works fine in Chrome and Safari.)

I followed the 'solution' in the forum without any success.

When I search for "Google Earth Browser plugin" in Finder, I find SEVEN matching that search under "Kind" in Macintosh HD/Library/Internet Plugins . . .but that "Kind" is associated with plugins that are "Named" something else - e.g., Adobe, DivX, Flash, Flip4Mac, etc. (Weird).

Ever since I updated to firefox 20.0 I've been having a problem with firefox. Every time I start up firefox I get a message saying that this is so embarrassing for trying but failing to restore my previous session and it gives me the option to either close the page and go to the welcome screen, or to restore my previous session. My preferences has the show my home page selected, and every time that I close out of firefox, I close the page by hitting the red x, and then I highlight either the firefox icon or the firefox tab at the top of my screen and select quit. I reset firefox twice and that didn't work either.

Every time I go to my Youtube account and watch my own videos or others an audio (I guess 3rd party) pop up video loudly interrupts with an ad. I've searched the internet and done all the cache emptying and cookie dumping and I have not added any add-ons and it continues to occur. How do I stop this. It is ruining any enjoyment I get from playing a video.

I have attached an icons which you can see the images across the top are all defaulted. Any help would be appreciated.

Ever since installing the latest version of Firefox on my Mac (OS X 10.8.4), I cannot watch or download any Flash Player videos. Here is some of the background to the problem:

1. I have the Java Applet Plug-in Java 7 Update 25 installed and activated. 2. I also have NoScript 2.6.7.1 activated. If I am on a web page with Flash material I want to download, I do what I used to do with the previous version of Firefox, which is to click "Temporarily allow all this page" from the "Options" menu. 3. If I try to stream or download, I get the error message "To view this video, you need the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.", and a Download button. 4. The button takes me to the Flash Player page, where I am told "JavaScript is currently disabled in your browser and is required to download Flash Player." 5. In the "about"config" settings, Javascript.enabled is set to "default" and "true".

At this point, I am baffled. Can anybody please help?

For unknown reason Firefox 17.0.1 has stopped downloading pdf's. This was happening before upgrading to 17.0.1, and before upgrading to Mac OS 10.8.3 from 10.7.4. In order to get pdf's printed, I have to copy the links and download them on another browser, such as Safari. On the other hand, browsing with Safari alone won't work because it messes up the various websites' formats, and becomes unreadable. Firefox will also have this problem occasionally, but usually not.

    To overcome the problems I down loaded Chrome and Camino, but they only allow new pages as tabs, instead of fresh windows, so they have just added to the frustration! Since I never had these types of problems before, I can't figure out if it is the browsers, or my OS, but I suspect the latter. Have you had similar reports, and if so, where you able to offer assistance?  Thank you.
