This started happening for no reason that I can find. Every few minutes a pop-up window appears that says: Browser startup change

    An unknown change was detected on your browser's search settings

(button) Keep my current settings (button) I am aware of the change and approve it

                                                 (button)YES

None of the buttons do anything. The close button doesn't work. The window sits on top.

I've been plagued with unwanted programs trying to change my browser setting and adding toolbars I don't want.. I've been able to delete / disable these manually.

The window doesn't show up with all extensions turned off. I can only turn it off by selecting it on the task bar and closing it there. I've been turning extensions on or off but it only goes away with all extensions off.

I've done some research. I know about (about:config) and (about:cache). Maybe the weirdest thing is that (about:cache) shows nothing about where the temporary files cache is located. List Cache Entries shows all of the temporary files, but still no clue about where those files are located? [since "List Cache Entries" is under "Memory cache device", that's not helpful.]

my cache settings

I'm trying to move the temporary files cache to drive F. Finding their current location might help.

Please advise. Thanks.

The plug-ins checker shows Flash to be out-of-date, but Adobe's plug-in checker shows that I am up-to-date. Also Firefox's about:plugins page shows that my Flash is the correct version. I have erased the pluginreg.dat file and it did not solve the problem. Any other suggestions or is this your plug-ins checker again?

I believe I started getting this problem when I updated flash player but when I tried reinstalling this did not solve the problem. This problem seems to be only happening with mozilla and other browsers like chrome has not have this error. Clearing cookies and cache does not work since I have put never remember history as my option for mozilla. So right now I have no idea what else to try if anyone knows how to solve this, it would be greatly appreciated. TIA

For whatever reason, youtube will no longer work in my firefox browser anymore. Every time I try to play a video I get a message saying "An error has occurred. Please try again later." I have tried running firefox in safe mode, but that didn't help. I believe it stopped working after I installed the newest version of Java. So I even tried uninstalling it, but that did not work either. I have the newest version of adobe flash and firefox, so I have no idea what is causing this problem.

I click on the rotating balls of download helper and it looks as though the download is taking only a couple seconds. Then, when I click on it to play it it doesn't work and says, The document “Barney_ I Hear Music Everywhere.mp4” could not be opened. The movie's file format isn't recognized. To see if additional software is available that will enable QuickTime Player to open the movie, click Tell Me More.

I have a 2011 Apple Macbook Pro 13".

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

It seems that Firefox frequently loses window focus when I open a new page. It may be a bookmark, a link opened into a new tab via CTRL+Left-Click, or whatever. The following scenario always results in the window losing focus (for me).

  1. Open Firefox.
  2. Open this link and bookmark it.
  3. Close and reopen Firefox.
  4. Open the page just bookmarked using the bookmark list and don't touch the window.

I read this page daily, so when I start Firefox and open the page, I have to click in it so as to scroll, etc..

Firefox 13, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

I wish this site had "Preview" for its posts. Geez Louise.

As someone who deals with video media on the web quite often, this handicap inherent in Firefox is a fairly big and ridiculously obvious problem. When, if ever, will it be resolved? If Firefox wasn't such a popularly used browser, this issue wouldn't be as much of a concern, but people are using Firefox quite a bit on-line. It seems very strange to me that this otherwise excellent browser from Mozilla can't play back a simple MP4 file in HTML 5.

"Firefox doesn't support MP4 and 3GP due to their patent-encumbered nature."

Is there a way of resolving that at any point? If not, is there a reliable format that I should switch to instead of MP4, like Flash? I'm aware that there are plugins available to make Firefox "see" MP4 files, but asking customers to download and install a plugin is not really a professional solution. Please advise! Thank you.
