When I access Task Manager from the Firefox menu or just type about:performance the screen comes up, but it only shows information for Task Manager itself (low impact) but doesn't show information about open tabs / websites or add-ons. I was trying to use it to see if one of my open tabs was impacting browser performance. I have the latest version of Firefox.

Could you help me understand and fix it please ? Cyril.

My Private Internet Access VPN does not have access to your browser following recent update. Here's my VPN instructions to reconnect: Firefox has recently changed the way addons handle proxy connection. Allowing the addon to run in Private Windows is now required for proxy settings to be updated.

Please visit the URL below to view you addons page. Then click on the "Private Internet Access" addon to modify its settings. From here, change the "Run in Private Windows" setting to "Allow".

I go to addons page but there is no Private Internet Access addon to open.......................... How do I get to clicking on "Allow"? Thanks.

Hi. Been having nothing but huge hassles trying to get Firefox to do anything with letting the website access my webcam. I've already read a bunch of articles on this but still no luck getting it to work. I keep putting in the url of the website, pressing enter, but firebox will never show the website in the box below it like your help section said would happen. I have used both the actual url from the website page which is asking me to connect my cam, and I have also shortened that web address to just the website's main address, but still nothing happens when I out that address into the camera setting's search box and then press enter ( I attached 2 screen capture images if that). I have even doubled checked the web address and copy n pasted it into the camera settings search box, pressed enter, but still nothing shows in the box down below it. I have Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit in case that matters

Somehow, I appear to have installed a plugin called the Lhite Network Extension. It creates hotlinks to advertising sites from plain text "keywords" in web pages. The originator of the plugin is something called Advertising (gear symbol) Support, Inc. and their web site is www.advertisingsupport.com. The removal instructions on that site are generic and do not provide the specific name of the plugin for Lhite Network Extension.

Neither Lhite Network Extension or anything from Advertsinig(gear)Support are enumerated in Firefox's lists of plugins and extensions, nor is anything shown in the Windows 8.1 add/remove program utility. Registry searches are negative as well. Running Firefox in "safe mode" prevents the add on from loading, but I still don't know which one it is.

Any suggestions about how to rid myself of this would be appreciated.

In Firefox 24.0 -> Tools -> Options -> Applications, I cannot choose a program (hh.exe) to read .chm files. When I choose to open a *.chm file I have only the option of saving it, not to open it. Other browsers like Explorer, chrome, even old netscape 7.2 allow me to open it and the program finds I presume the hh.exe file and away you go. I cannot find a way to get Firefox (my favorite browser) to read chm files.

I am trying to play a video (the website supports .webm, .ogv, mp4) but neither autoplay nor the start button seem to work. However, if I slide the control button to the right (+/- 40 sec) the video does play.

I have tried many of the solutions suggested in other threads (deactivating potential conflicting plugins, resetting Firefox, etc.) but none of them work.

What am I missing?

Firefox is not working correctly in windows 8.1 computers. It does not shut down completely and then does not open with this error message. Attaching.... David@XXXxxxx.com... The window displays the message firefox is already running but is not responding. To open a new window you must first close the existing firefox process or restart your system. This is very annoying it happens all the time.

I am running windows 8.1 on my lap top. I seem to have to alternate by changing my connection settings to open Firefox. After a session on the pc I can log back in with no problems. Shut down and go to log in again a few minutes later and I get the error message PROXEY SERVER IS REFUSING CONNECTION.

I have spoken to my provider and they tell e I do not have to have or should not need a proxry connection?. They also told me to try the following, which I have to admit is the only way I am now connecting to the internet.

Go to Tools-Advance-Connections. (configure how Firefox connects to the internet. SETTINGS.

In the window that opens I need to go to first option (configure proxies to connect to the internet) Here you are given three more options: 1.No Proxy 2.Autodetect Proxy 3Manual Proxy

If the box is checked for (2) above, I have to uncheck and check (3) above. Then restart the browser. It works fine....that is until I log out of Firefox. Go back in and I get the same error message, Proxy server refusing connection. This happens from time to time....not always. Some days it works fine on the last setting chosen. So I go through everything again as explained above and uncheck manual andthen I re check Autodetect....and it works. Next time it's the other way around, I just feel like a tennis ball bouncing from one option to the other and I should not have to be doing this. Never happened when I used XP or Vista?.

I have Mamaware cleaning installed and use Defender (which came with Windows 8). I have upgraded to 8.1 but the problem existed when I was running 8.
