I am entirely unable to ever watch a video in Firefox which requires the Adobe Flashplayer plug-in. In fact, IF I activate the plug-in, Firefox goes into a "not responding" mode, which never ends. I DO, after anywhere from 15 to 40 minutes get a script quit responding message, but regardless of how I answer it, another freeze (or the same one) occurs, and after another interminable wait, I get a repeat message. This happens so many times I've left it to run more than 12 hours, then checked it, to find the message windows stacked. When I cleared the last of 20+ windows at the end of the 12 hours, I immediately got another freeze. The only fix to date has been to kill Firefox, either from the Task Manager, or from the "red X, and kill it now instead of waiting" options. Then, on restart, I have to get quickly to the add-ons page, and re-disable Adobe. The version of Firefox I'm running is 35.0.1 The version of Adobe I'm running is Shockwave Flash 16.0.0.305. I ran, over the space of 20 hours, several malware hunters (malware bytes, Microsoft System Security, AVG, AVAST, Spybot S&D, and others I can't remember now) with several issues found and cured. None, though, fixed this. My machine is an ACER Aspire 5732Z, running Windows 7, 64-bit. This problem cropped up about 2 months or less ago. I'm wondering if it is related to the latest version of Shockwave, and possibly occurred after a(n automatic) update.

YouTube works fine. Other websites play videos, no problem. But then I'll go to a website and see a message that the video is either corrupt or is not supported. When I search for how to play mp4 in Firefox I end up at this site: http://www.jwplayer.com/blog/the-state-of-html5-firefox-now-supports-mp4/ With the huge headline Firefox Now Supports MP4. No, it ****ing doesn't! A bit frustrated, because everywhere I look for help on this, I either come across pages saying it should work, Firefox supports mp4 etc, OR forums where it's webmakers asking the question and then the solution is something wrong in their coding - which doesn't help me, the lonely end user. When I go to this suggested test site: http://techslides.com/demos/sample-videos/small.mp4 I get the error message: Video can't be played because the file is corrupt. No, it's not. I can download it and play it on WinAmp. When I go to this suggested test site: http://www.html5videoplayer.net/html5video/mp4-h-264-video-test/ I get the error: No video with supported format and MIME type found. Huh? Again, I can download and play it fine. But Firefox won't play it. Soooooo Is there a fix in the wind? Is there something I can tweak or change to make Firefox recognize and play this stuff? Is there a plugin/extension/addon that I need to download to play mp4? If this is a known problem that is going to be fixed eventually, is there something I can do as a substitute (ie a plugin for now)? Because it seems like the only alternative is to abandon Firefox and start using Chrome, which has no problem with the above-mentioned videos.

I am trying to import Firefox bookmarks from a json file on another disc, and merge these with my existing bookmarks.

I only have options to import an html file. I can also use restore to bring in the file, but this will overwrite my current bookmarks, and I want to merge the two.

How do I remove ad.yieldmanager.com in firefox 12.0 I already went to tools, options, privacy, use custom settings for history and then exceptions added "ad.yieldmanager.com" to be blocked. Cleaned out all cookies. It still pops up when I log onto Firefox just below my tool bars. I have run Avast Antivirus, Malwarebytes, Spyware Terminator 2012 and these did not help either.

FF recently updated and when it restarted my browser window is now not showing my menu toolbar or bookmarks toolbar even though they are checked to be on. Plus the minimize/maximize buttons are overlapping my tabs at the top. It seems I'm in some different sized view or something that I cannot figure out how to get out of. I am not in "full screen" view (already tried F11 to be sure). And I've tried dragging the sides out but that doesn't fix the top min/max button issue where it overlaps and my toolbars AND my MENU bar still do not show up. I've gone into customize and removed and then re-added the "bookmarks menu" but it only shows up next to the other icons, not in the normal "toolbar" format with my folders, etc. I can view my bookmark toolbar in the SIDEBARS but again it's just the top of my screen that's messed up and I know it has something to do with my min/maximize buttons being overlapped with tabs but can't get out of it.

I've put a screenshot below to show you what I mean. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What *is* a container/"container tab"? (Please be consistent with the nomenclature)

Do I open tabs within these containers? I just opened a container/"container tab" and did a search from the search bar: it opened a new tab that does not appear to be contained or related to the container/"container tab" in any way. Am I supposed to be able to move tabs into these Containers? Maybe not, because sometimes they are referred to as Container Tabs themselves. Is this the desired behavior, and if so, why?
