I have recently decided to take the plunge and have installed two addons but, unfortunately, I can't find one of them on my Firefox's Toolbars, including the addon bar. I thought they would both automatically be added to one or another of the bars. One is on my addon bar but the other is missing although, according to the Addons Manager, it is enabled. Is there something I have to do to be able to add this to either one of my Toolbars, or the addon bar? I use Windows 7 and Firefox 9.0.1

The Real Player Browser Download Record Plugin 15.0.1 in Firefox 10 stopped appearing on all videos. It was working from 1/31 to 2/3 and now doesn't show at all. A clean reinstall of Real Player 15 Plus doesn't fix this. OS is Windows 7 Home Premium. As usual after a F.F. upgrade, the download button works on Internet Explorer. Now it's the weekend and Real's Developers aren't even working! The Developers of both companies need to coordinate this once and for all. Norton started doing this with Mozilla at my suggestion for the Norton Tool Bar and there no longer is any delay in compatibility. Please contact Real Player tech support to complain. Their Case Manager told me that the three week compatibility delay with Real Player 14 last year would never happen again. I wouldn't bet on it.

  Update Note: This thread is now also about "Adobe Flash 11.3 doesn't load video content"  because people having that problem started posting here.

Before I upgraded my computer to Windows 7 and updated Firefox to the latest version, when I opened a PDF document online, the PDF navigation/menu bar would automatically appear at the top of the screen. Now it only appears at the bottom in a blue bar when I move my mouse around.

Flash plugin will not install even after installing the latest version Flash

When I go to a site that contains Flash content, it says "A plugin is needed to display this content" and there is a link to install the plugin. Additionally, there is a message at the top of the page that says "Additional plugins are required to display all the media on this page" with an option to "Install Missing Plugins." I click the link to install the missing plugin, and a dialog box pops up that says "The following plugins are available:" and lists "Adobe Flash Player 11.0.1.152" with a check box next to it. The box is checked, and I click "Next" to install. It goes through the motions, and then tells me that "No plugins were installed." There is a link to manually install the plugin, which takes me to Adobe's Flash download page. I unchecked the box to pair McAfee Security with the download, and downloaded the latest version of Flash (to be honest, I've actually downloaded this exact same version about 10 times today). The dialog box pops up, I save the file, and once it has downloaded, I open the containing folder (my downloads folder). I then close all programs (including Firefox) except for the Windows Explorer folder that I'm going to run the installer from. I double-click on the Flash installer to run the installation. The installation process completes, the installer tells me that the download is successful, and my browser opens back up with an "Installation Successful" message from the Adobe website. Yay! My installation is successful... Orrrrrr not. Navigating back to the page with the Flash media - still have a message saying I need the plugin. Attempt to download plugin again...no dice.

THEN, I go to "Manage my add-ons" thinking maybe I need to enable the plugin. There is no Flash (or Shockwave) plugin listed on any of the menus - it's like it doesn't exist.

I downloaded the latest version of Java because I read somewhere that Flash requires Java to work; I installed the "Add-On Compatibility Reporter" so I could force Java to be enabled. It made no difference whatsoever, as best I can tell.

I also went to Adobe's page where you can see what version of Flash you're running (http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/) and it doesn't even show that I have Flash installed. In Internet Explorer, it does show that I have Flash installed, but it's the previous version (but that is likely due to the fact that I downloaded Flash from Mozilla, not IE, and they use different modes in each browser - so an update that you download from one browser does not necessarily apply to the other browser).

So in summary: I do not know what on earth is wrong here, but I am about as frustrated as I have ever been in my life. I don't know why the Adobe Flash installation is saying it is successful (is it lying to me??), but there is no plugin showing up in my Manage Add-Ons menu, and I have googled every possible combination of the content in this post and have not found a solution that works yet.

I checked my plug-in and was told the Google Earth Plugin was outdated. I clicked on the "Update" option but nothing happened. Usually when I clicked on that option, it'll open the developer's website so I can proceed the update. But this one just sat there and nothing happened. So how could I update this plug-in?

Thank you.

The Yahoo toolbar simply appeared at start up the other day. I don't want it, won't use it, and want to get rid of it. The two suggestions on your Help didn't relate: Click on the "Pencil Menu"--what and where is that? Can't find anything that remotely appears to be a Pencil Menu. 2nd: Go to Tools, click on Extension--no such thing on my Tools menu anywhere.

Real help, please!

Mac OS 10.6.8, Firefox 16.0.1, PDF Viewer 0.6.39 installed. In Firefox>Preferences>Applications, PDFs are supposed to be handled by the PDF Browser 2.4.4 plug-in for Preview. However, when I try to view a PDF in Firefox, I get this:

"We are sorry, but Adobe Reader is unable to show documents in this browser configuration.

"Please use your browser to download this file and open it in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.

"To avoid this message in the future, many browsers provide a way to turn off certain add-ons, and some are able to show this document natively. Please contact your browser vendor for more details."

Why is Adobe Reader trying to open the PDF when Preview is the default? How do I disable Adobe Reader from doing anything in Firefox?

A couple of days ago, my computer (mac OS X 10.4.11 PPC) suddenly seemed to stop recognizing that I had flash installed and wouldn't play anything requiring flash - instead a message came telling me to install it.

I uninstalled flash and the installed the latest version for my computer from the adobe website (which is 10.1.102.64).

Computer still thinks flash isn't installed and when I checked plugins I discovered firefox has blocked it telling me the version of flash I want to use is too old (even though the version I've downloaded is the latest I can use with my computer).

How can I enable the plugin on firefox so I can use flash? The 'enable' button on the plugin has been greyed out so I can't press it.

Please help - I'm rubbish with computers so please give any advice in very simple language! ( i have firefox 3.0.4)

Bing has somehow sneaked onto the browser, probably when I installed new software. I am now missing some of the buttons I usually have replaced by the stupid bing toolbar. I hate bing, it is useless for me. Do I need to uninstall Firefox and reinstall it? I can't even find my bookmarks now. Other than Java and WOT, I don't usually have much in the way of plug-ins I use Win7 and Firefox 3 something
