When I pull up Pinterest, the pictures on my boards will not show up. It just has some words. It said it may be because my browser was not updated. I was using Internet Explorer and I tried updating to Windows Microsoft 8. That did not solve the problem. I then installed Firefox as my browser but the pictures still do not come up. It did not give me that error message though that my browser was out of date. What do I need to do to make Pinterest work correctly and show images and video clips that are on my boards and on the site in general?

This just started a few months ago. I cannot open a PDF from a search engine with FF (version 22). I click on a link (PDF) and FF opens a blank tab. I have searched Options-Applications-Search for PDF, and nothing comes up. However, in the applications tab, I can see Adobe Reader (default). PDF opens just fine with IE 10 and Google Chrome. I have read through all of the other posts regarding this issue, and I have tried the advice there to no avail. Can someone please help me? Thank you!

Whenever I try to watch any video on youtube, it will not load more than a few seconds at a time. It will stop and stutter and lag for several minutes before it continues to load. This was not the case as little as 3 months ago. I have update flash and my computer and internet speeds have not changed. Even pausing the video and waiting will not usually allow it to load past about 3 to 10 seconds.

Why doesn't my clear history completely clear my history

Hi there,

I'm trying to clear all of the browsing history from my Firefox but it's not working. The function clears all of my searches and website preferences and passwords bar one or two websites. I've ticked all of the options for clearing history, apart from 'form and search history' as it won't let me tick this box. I also deleted all of my bookmarks, ran a CC cleaner and STILL there's search history when I start to type into the bar at the top. When I go into my history --> show all history having cleared it, it says that there is nothing there...

For example.. when I start to type P in the bar at the top.. UK Parliament immediately comes up. And my bar at the top of the page isn't one of those where you can just automatically search via Google so I don't think its doing that!...

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox but even so some websites are STILL there! How can I track these websites down and get rid of them?

Thanks for your help!!

I have been an ardent Firefox user ever since Firefox began, having created innumerable Firefox users through the effusive enthusiasm in which I have promoted Firefox to others. But the manner in which Firefox has been demonstrating its total disdain for its loyal cadre of users like myself has me infuriated to no end, to the point of dumping Firefox altogether out of sheer frustration, anger with Firefox's absolute disregard to the requests of its users, who have pleaded to have a mechanism in which the all-too frequent updates wreaks havoc with our lives, livelihood.

The worst aspect of Firefox's dictatorial approach is the manner in which truth is the first casualty in having a process to disable the update process which is very much akin to the manner in which Foie gras is produced. I have been given all sorts of advice, guidance on how to disable the update process none of which have done a wit to fulfill my request of the specific needs of a browser that serves my interest and purpose, one in which is very much entwined with the work I do online as what I do for a living.

The insults Firefox perpetuates against users like me in providing phony approaches that in the end turn out to be just another dead end is nothing short of nefarious. My attempt for the umpteenth time in trying to put a stop to these updates is a terrible business practice, doing the worst sort of harm, to those who have been most loyal to the Firefox cause.

Just today, despite applying every sort of suggestion to stop these infernal updates, Firefox has once again found a new way to bring me closer to becoming forever alienated.

This morning I noticed browsers all on five computers updated when I specifically had in place every contingency for disabling these updates and so once again, I deleted every last remnant of Firefox off of my computer and started anew with a browser from Old Apps.com after going through my checklist of steps to insure the updates will never cross my path again.

But despite doing everything to stop it, checking never to be updated, having extensions applied manually and a host of other faux approaches to disable the updates, I nearly lost it when noticing that all computers were displaying the latest updates.

After today's latest debacle with the game you play with us users, it came to me like a ton of bricks falling loose right on top of me, how on a smaller scale,you, your tactics, your total obliviousness to the requests needs of our users, reminded me of Microsoft in its heyday.

That's a very sad,tragic legacy to be reminiscent of.

The "solution" you posted can't be tried, because the link doesn't work to get to the KB note on configuring layout.css.devPixelsPerPx Why didn't you simply post instructions to actually MAKE THE CHANGE in your answer??

And why should all of us have to get under the hood to fix the CSS when it's clear that Mozilla fouled up?

I can view youtube videos however I am unable to view certain websites. It just comes up with a black screen when loading the media. BBC Iplayer is a prime example.

Also my screensaver, has just stopped working and it keeps saying flash player is not installed, even though it is....is this part of the same issue?

Thank you very much for your help

The flash player crashes every time I try to play a flash video in browser (vk videos as well as dailymotion and as well as youtube). Flash games are okay, though... Kongregate.com at the very least... At the same time google Chrome does not crash and plays video okay. There're no crash reports for these crashes in about:crashes. I tried downgrading flash to 10.3. I tried to update real player. I turned off hardware acceleration. Nothing helps! The video just crashes at the very first moment of playback.

PS: it all started recently. In august. There were no problems in July.

Hi,

I'm having two problems with Firefox:

1) Flash Player...

a) Sometimes I keep getting the message that I need to download Flash Player. b) However I have visited this link: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/find-version-flash-player.html And verified that the latest version of Flash is already installed on my system. c) I get the message, and then after a little while the video still plays anyway - but how can I stop receiving this message?

2) Shockwave...

From time to time I get an error message regarding the "Shockwave Plugin" - saying that it can't play a script, and asking if I want the script to continue or stop. 

How can I solve this?

I have a Windows 7 PC.

Thanks in advance!

I do not like the aereo/transparent background on the Firefox (ver. 22) title bar, I would rather have it a solid color /opaque not transparent. I have used themes but this changed everything except the title bar. I heard there is a way to change the title bar background color without changing the overall Windows 7 theme. Appreciate any assistance with this problem.

Thanks

When prompt to remember a password and selecting "Never remember password for this site", there's no option to coming back and adding the site to remember, if you selected no, previously.

I've been searching, researching and trying EVERY solution offered to fix this issue with Firefox, from users, staff and contributors. After exhausting all options I've come to a conclusion that there are NO fixes for this problem, short of uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. If so, the developers are giving out the fix(secret). Older solutions don't work with the current version I'm having problems with(22.0).

Under the options--->security--->The "remember password", is checked(as usual). The exception box is empty. This is not an extension problem. Safe Mode solution doesn't work. The "Bookmarklet" solution doesn't work. Site prohibit is not the case, example: I can have a couple of Yahoo passwords that are remembered, but the one site I choose to never remember, I can't get to remember. Mind you, I've been using/doing this for years with no problem, and I have the same passwords remembered on other computers. This is just one instant I selected no at the time, and now I want to change it.

With all options tried I look forward to a solution, fix, or repair for, said problem. Thank You!
