Hi,

I recently asked a questions saying:

"I click on a YouTube video, an error message shows on the screen saying: "An error occurred, please try again later. Learn more" with a black background. I am pretty sure all of you guys have experienced it at least once. However, this phenomenon occurs every time I click a video. I cleared my cookies, updated my Adobe flash player, enabled java script, and updated Firefox. But these did not solve my problems. Help me out please!"

Someone replied to my question, saying that I should disable my adobe accelerator, which I have done. However, the youtube videos still do not load and the error message keep coming up. I am getting really frustrated. I have tried everything. Please help me.

I am unable to access my GlobeInvestor Streaming Quotes (http://finserv.globeinvestor.com/fcclient8/mainframe.htm) via GlobeInvestorGold.com. When I click on the "Tracker" link on the GlobeInvestor Gold website to access my streaming quotes, I get a pop up with an error stating:

I have restarted Firefox numerous times. I have reset Firefox. I have re-installed Java a few times and I have also updated all plugins. I am running Firefox on my MacBook Pro. If you could provide any assistance, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much in advance.

I would like to be able to completely refresh all scripts, images and code (absolutely everything on the page) when I click refresh for a tab. I am a web designer and firefox often serves up old content, regardless of whether I manually empty the cache or click refresh multiple times on a page. I tried some chanegs in the config file too which I saw for earlier versions of firefox but they don't seem to have helped. Any suggestions similar to cmd-shift-r that force a complete refresh of a page would be very much appreciated. Even if there is a way to turn caching off completely so that surfing the web was slower that would be preferable to be able to test site updates correctly. I use firebug so if there is an option in there for forcing full refresh of pages that could also help. I am using the most current version of firefox (43.0.4). Thanks

I have already seen some suggested solutions to the problem of this extremely annoying Yahoo DNS error solutions page, but they involve going to the add-ons page of firefox and disabling various add-ons. The issue is that even when I try to go to the add-ons page I get immediately redirected to the Yahoo DNS solutions page again.

I have cleared my browser history and cache, hoping it would help, but nothing. Extremely annoying as I never installed anything - it simply started after a Firefox upgrade.

Any help much appreciated.

I am using firefox on mac with manual proxies and have provided the proxy address and port. I have set the proxy in Firefox->Preferences->Advanced->Network. This proxy requires authentication But firefox does not prompt me for credentials of this proxy. It just throws a page that says "Proxy Authorization Required" and "Description: Authorization is required for access to this proxy"

I have tried the following to no effect. 1) Clearing all the profiles in ~/Library/Profiles folders 2) Clearing profiles.ini file. 3) Setting the proxy along with username and password in System preferences and make firefox use system proxies instead of manual proxies.

Right now I am downloading firefox 13 beta to see if this solves the problem. Any workaround available for FF12.0?


Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.


EDIT:: Tried with FF 13 beta. Same problem

Which versions of Firefox actually support Java Plugins?

Up until yesterday I've been using Firefox ESR 52.1.0 (64-bit) in order to access a VPN I need for work, which requires a Java plugin. I'm also running Firefox Developer Edition 54.0a2 (2017-04-20) (64-bit). Yesterday I updated Java to "Version 8 Update 131 (build 1.8.0_131-b11)", and I can longer use Java plugins on any version of Firefox, which means I can no longer access the VPN.

It was my understanding that The ESR versions of Firefox would continue to support Java through into 2018, but this has not been my experience.

Are there any specific issues with these versions of Firefox that prevent Java Plugins from working, or is this an issue with that version of Java itself?

Thanks!

Someone else used my computer to log in to their gmail account a long time ago. Now, everytime I want to log in to my gmail account, their profile pops up. I can't log in to delete it, and it is annoying because I'm always asked to log in to their email first...rather than my own. I could easily delete the user when I log on using google chrome...

The mail program on Yahoo has been frozen in Firefox, no other browser. Yesterday, I opened it, and i was unable to delete mail because the whole toolbar with delete, reply, forward, spam, etc. was no longer on my mail window. I tried to send an email, but this function was also disabled.

Basically, the only thing that Firefox enables in Yahoo mail is loading new emails. I had to use Safari and Chrome to perform these functions on the toolbar that is still missing in Firefox.

What happened? How to restore these functions?

I want nothing more than to use Firefox Developer edition as my main browser but I simply cannot because of one simple thing. I can't change the shortcut to open developer tools! The addons that are available that handle this task are only compatible with FF, not FF Developer edition and it is driving me crazy! I need to be able to change this. Is there anything you can offer to help?

I was in the middle of watching Netflix when I got an error message:


"Silverlight Installation Problem Error Code: 2103

You have encountered an issue specific to Microsoft Silverlight, the software used to watch movies on the Netflix website. This issue is often resolved by uninstalling and then reinstalling Microsoft Silverlight on your computer.

To uninstall Microsoft Silverlight on your Macintosh computer, please follow these steps:

   Completely close any currently open internet browser windows.
   Navigate to your Hard Drive.
   Select Library.
   Select Internet Plugins.
   Drag Silverlight.plugin to your trash.
   Once you have emptied your trash, Microsoft Silverlight uninstallation will be complete.

After completing the above steps, attempting to Watch Instantly on www.netflix.com will prompt you to reinstall Microsoft Silverlight."

I spent the next hour uninstalling and reinstalling Silverlight to no avail. I finally gave up and watched it on Safari. But I prefer to use Firefox.

I followed every tutorial I could find. It's activated under Add Ons. I have no idea why it wont work.

Is there a way to hide the arrow of a <select> element in Firefox 30 using CSS?

Maybe there's a hidden (pseudo) element or property I can access?

I couldn't find anything on https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/Reference/Mozilla_Extensions. I tried a couple of -moz-appearance values, but they either add styling I cannot remove, or they do not allow restyling, or they still show the arrow.

In Firefox 29, there was a hack that worked, described here: https://gist.github.com/joaocunha/6273016 it no longer works in Firefox 30. There is also a bug about the unstylability of select elements here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=649849. If anyone can point me to a changeset that might have changed this in Firefox 30, I'm also interested. I know I can hide the arrow by overlaying an element, or by nesting the select and hiding the overflow, I’m not really interested in that.
