Hi! I have a self-hosted extension that I can successfully install using in-line installation by using InstallTrigger.install(...). Sometimes it doesn't show up in my add-on bar after installation and I cannot figure out why. I don't know if the debug thing on the add-on developer tools will help since I am not sure if it is installing correctly. I think it is since the entry point of my add-on shows up correctly.

Any help to go about solving this would be greatly appreciated.

I clicked on "add to firefox." Then a box in the left top corner of my laptop comes up and asks me to allow mozilla to get this going. I click allow. Then another box comes up asking if I still want to install LeechBlock and I do so I click install. Then another box that says Firefox needs to restart and LeechBlock will start downloading after Firefox has been restarted with the option of "restart now" which I choose. It restarts and then ... nothing. What am I doing wrong?

I have downloaded findbar tweak... and it never worked. Today I received notice the findbar tweak was better than ever and updated... still doesn't work Downloaded it again... still doesn't work Some pages you can't even get findbar to appear ReaLLY... i swear I used to use findbar on every site for research.. But then you UPDATED the browser a year or so ago..;. OH MY WHAT AN IMPROVEMENT... firefox crashes every day, sometimes 3-4 times a day... both on my computer and my wife's computer.... and of course the findbar disappeared... rendering the browser useless for research So now I use chrome alongside firefox,,, and their stupid findbar is just as useless, but chrome doesn't crash and freeze every day..

I ask once a week in a google search... when will they fix firefox... keep hoping somebody will post real information.. Oh yeah, turn off add-ons, or yeah clear cashe (every hour?), oh yeah BS

And today.. I get a message with big green checkmark notify9ing the FINDBAR is updated... STILL DOESN'T WORK And PLEASE don't email the 'answer page' where 'the solution can be located' ... , because you've sent that before, and I've been there half dozen times, AND THE ANSWERS DON'T WORK...

So I am asking a question:: God, will somebody please fix firefox? And fix the findbar tweak?

I was an avid fan. I used it on a dozen of my favorite sites. A few days ago after the recent update...41.0.1...the button disappeared.on all of my sites. After checking about:config, confirming the setting and re-booting, the Reader View button has reappeared. BUT, when clicked on, it erases EVERYTHING on the page except the headline and the byline and the left sidebar. Everything else, including the entire text of the story. I am left facing a white page. It happens on every page where the button appears.

I have tried everything. I have even tried downloading the file straight from the HP website and "installing it from the file" in Firefox just like the forum said to do and still the Firefox download manager says It "could not install it because the file is corrupt." My Norton software scans everything I try to install and the comes up clean with them every time! It worked fine in the previous version of Firefox. This new update is horrible blocking so much stuff and crashing all of the time. Repeatedly "not responding" no matter what I am doing.

UnMHT has suddenly stopped working. Command suddenly and simply disappeared from the pull down file command menu. Tried the obvious: restart computer, restart Firefox, reinstall UnMHT, reinstall Firefox, etc. Add-on's says that it's installed and running, and no, I haven't switched off something, at least not knowngly; it remains in the default setting.

This is an add-on that I use *constantly*. Have installed Mozilla Archive Format as an alternative to keep up the pace but would much rather be using the UnMHT.

Win XP Pro 32 Bit system by the way. (Hey, it's stable!) Computer on 24/7 Full up AVG security. No security alerts before it happened. It just disappeared from the pull down file commands menu. Literally one minute it's there, and the next it's not.

Is this some new glitch related to XP? Never seen anything like this before. All help and suggestions greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I know how to manual convert a site in my history into a bookmark. But I want an addon to do this automatically based on critiria that I set in preferences. It would be much like a history addon and bookmark addon combined... here's what it would do: This addon would allow me to set the number of times in a set time period to convert the resulting historical sites into bookmarks, -- then there would be an option to delete history for the x number of days/weeks/months. (As well, this addon would check to see if the bookmark aready existed before making the conversion.) I'd suggest that all these created bookmarks be placed in a bookmark folder with the name of this addon.

An example, of a setting and process that the addon would do: I would set the preferences to convert all sites "> = 10 or more instances of the exact site" "in the previous week" (I may set it to check every 24 hours - as I have my browser on for many days at once). Reminder: it would check if site already existed in the bookmark folder. And also, in my preferences I could set that all history be deleted that are older then 1 week. (three preferences in total for addon)

The purpose of this addon: 1) to help control and reduce the number of historical site in my list (speed up firefox), and, at the same time 2) would preserve the most used sites in my bookmarks (so they could be easily found and used in the future ... and 3) this would be done automatically saving me time maintaining firefox and managing my favorite sites.

Mozilla AddOn Flash Video Downloader version 7.1.0 up to version 7.2.3 with Windows 7 :

I have requested for support from Flash Video Downloader support-team for installed addon Flash Video Downloader, but this problem issue could not be solved.

While I have opened several firefox windows, with the new versions of Flash Video Downloader, the firefox windows are reopened in accidental order after restarting firefox, but not in original order as before. If I had deinstalled Flash Video Downloader addon, all windows of firefox were opened again in original order. And if I had reinstalled mozilla addon Flash Video Downloader again, then after restarting firefox, all windows were opened again in accidental order, but not in original order.

Because of opening tabs automatically from Flash Video Downloader website after deinstalling this addon, I want to ask mozilla support, if I could trust this addon, and why this addon influences mozilla firefox while opening several firefox windows in accidental order, but not in original order. After deinstalling Flash Video Downloader addon in all opened firefox windows, a new tab from Flash Video Downloader website was opened for feedback response. One feedback tab in one window should be enough as before.

I had installed Omnibug to track Omniture events. After 2 days, Omnibug stopped working and freezes every time I click on it. On clicking Omnibug, all other tabs in Firebug (placed along with Omnibug) stop working. I have tried to re-install everything-mozilla firefox,firebug & Omnibug but nothing seems to work. Please find attached the screenshot. Also, for some reason firefox works with a web debugging tool for initial few days then stops working all of a sudden (ex: Fiddler, Charles, Omnibug)
