On YouTube and other Flash based video sites, Flash drops a huge number of frames, making playback very choppy even with the smallest resolution (360, 480). This doesn't happen with IE, not even while using the highest resolution (720, 1080) available. I know my computer is more than powerful enough to play back full HD, even without hardware acceleration. Is this Firefox's fault or Flashes and is there anything I can do about it?

After upgrading Firefox to 10.0, SAP Business Objects doesn't work in Edit Mode. It asks for some plugin, but it did not find any. Previous version of Firefox worked OK because I follow the instructions: - Enter “about:config” in the browser’s address bar. - Search for “html5.parser.enable”. - Double-click the row to set the value to “false”

When updating windows 7 I get the following response: Windows could not search for updates An error occurred while checking for updates for your computer error(s) found code 80072ee2 windows encountered an unknown error

click here to     get help with this error

When I do this - get help - the "fix" doesn't fix it and I eventually come back to this same window

The last time I was able to update windows 7 was in December 2011.

This same problem has happened before but the "fix" fixed it some time.

I get the same error when I open internet explorer.

I sometimes (but not always) get this error code when trying to access facebook: www.facebook.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is only valid for the following names:

 a248.e.akamai.net , *.akamaihd.net , *.akamaihd-staging.net  

(Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

This is usually a problem for short time, but will reoccur throughout the day for 2-3 days, and then not be a problem for a month or more. I don't know what why this occurs, nor what I can do about it.

I use Firefox 10.0.2 and mac osx 10.5.8

When I click on a .nrl file extension (belongs to Autonomy I-Manage Software) it returns a string of code (what is in the shortcut link) instead of following the link and returning the document. Is there a way to tell Forefox connect to the document that the shortcut is linked to? The .nrl file extension belongs to a piece of software called FileSite (document management system).

I use a 2011 MacBook Pro w/ OS X Lion v. 10.7.3.

Every time I start Firefox, I first have to click "open" on a pop up warning box that says:

Firefox is an app you downloaded from the internet. Are you sure you want to open this app?

This is really annoying & there's no option to stop asking me this. Does anyone else get this obnoxious pop up & have you figured out a way to make it stop?

I was told that this "search-results" are due to a malware program called "searchqu". I've deleted everything about searchqu from my computer, I've run mal-ware scans, and virus scans, and I have gone into the about:config to do google's start page. I just want the original firefox start page back because it has the restore session button and USED TO have google as the default search engine. Please help.
