I installed the jdk 1.6u7, and then I open firefox, I see there is a java console 6.0.07 in extension, but in plugins, there is no java. and I can't open java website, it shows I don't install java in my machine, but actually, I have installed jdk 1.6u7. I think only if the java exists in plugins, the website can get the jvm and run.

it seems it is ok if I install a jdk which will create a plugin in plugins, and the extension can't be used.

I have followed the directions on restoring my profile to a new location (new computer) explicitly and it's not working. None of my bookmarks or history are being restored. It appears that entirely new folders that did not exist in my June 25 backup file now exist. When I pasted the information, I was not asked to replace any files.

I have a separate backup in an Acronis file that looks more like the original installation I have on this new computer in the newly created profile. But that doesn't work either.

Can someone help me? This is more than 5 years of bookmarks I stand to lose if this won't work. Also all my passwords will be lost. This is a serious problem for me. I also have multiple add-ons I use all the time

Thank you.

Today, when I double-clicked the Mozilla Firefox icon, the window popped up for one second and then the next instant moment it suddenly disappeared. I cannot access Firefox, not even in Safe Mode, Compatibility Mode, Run As Administrator or any other modes. Tried re-installation, did not work. I do not get any crash message, it simply quits by itself. Firefox.exe appears in the Task Manager when I double-click it in Windows Explorer, and it disappears when the window disappears, the next instant moment. I have Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. Never encountered this sort of problem before.

There is no crash report, the crash window does not pop up, thus no crash report is generated. I cannot access the Troubleshooting Information, as I cannot operate from inside Firefox.

Why can I no longer send links to websites? Clicking File>Send Link doesn't work nor does right clicking on the mouse. Both worked prior to Firefox 6. I also can't send emails to websites that don't spell out their address but instead say "to send an email click here". Everything works fine in Chrome and Safari but not in Firefox.

I was using Firefox 13, and also Sandboxie. I kept a sandboxed Firefox browser open all of the time. If I clicked in a link in an email, the link would be opened in the open, sandboxed Firefox browser. I updated to Firefox 14. I no longer could click on a link in an email and have the web page open in the sandboxed Firefox browser. Instead, it ignored the sandboxed browser and opened a normal browser. This defeats the purpose of the easy security measure I was using. Is there any way to make a clicked link in an email open in a sandboxed Firefox 14 browser, rather than ignoring it and opening the link in a normal, not-sandboxed Firefox browser? In the meantime, I uninstalled Firefox 14 and reinstalled Firefox 13, and I can once again open a link in an email directly into an open, sandboxed Firefox browser, v. 13.

After both firefox and flash upgraded to the newest versions i've found i have no video for certain flash sites. Youtube works fine but sites like metacafe.com don't.

I've tried rolling back to firefox 13.0.0. I've aso tried rolling flash back to 11.2 and 10.3 to no avail. I have also tried disabling protected mode for flash, still no video. I have done a complete reinstall of both firefox (including deleting my profile data) and flash, but it still won't work.

The only time i get video is when i restart firefox in safe mode. However when i restart in normal mode with all addons disabled i get no video. I don't have realplayer installed either.

Anyone got any ideas as to what I could try that i haven't already?

I just recently upgraded to Firefox 13.0.1. (It seems that there may have been two updates on the same day or in very short succession, but I am not sure of it. I may be recalling upgrades to multiple instances of Firefox, all to this same version. Thus, it *might* be the case that this problem cropped up with this version or with a very recent previous version.)

Since the upgrade, empty windows appear in the Recently Closed Windows list (RCWL). I try to keep the list uncluttered, so when I am finished with a window holding sites that I am sure I don't want to go back to, I close all the tabs in the window, leaving an unused New Tab***, then close the window. Such windows should not be included in the RCWL, but they are, now.

[*** I set new tabs to about:blank so that they will not load any pages automatically.]

Since this change in standard behavior comes with an upgrade, and since I can not find any reference to it elsewhere, including Mozilla Support, I suspect that it may be a new bug.

In troubleshooting, I tried clearing the Recently Closed Tabs list in such windows as well. I have never had to before, but it seemed worth trying, and like something that may have become relevant. I was thinking that perhaps a window would not "register as truly empty" if there were Recently Closed Tabs in the list. This tactic did not work.

I also tried starting Firefox in Safe Mode, reopening all of the RCWL, closing each one's only tab -- a 'New Tab' in every case -- then closing each window. They still appear in the RCWL.

Please let me know if I can (or need to) provide more information. Thanks for any help!
