Hi, I have recently noticed I have an unwanted addon called gophoto.it.

I have tried to remove the addon but am so far having no luck.

When on the addons page in firefox there is no option to remove, just to disable. I have tried restarting in safemode to remove it but am still unable to.

I tried to remove it manually, I searched about:config and have come up with one result, I have tried to find this in the directory under extensions and the corresponding file doesnt show up.

The preference name for the file is: extensions.a2ea36bf108774aaa882cff78f7d9d95cdfb1672d116a4eb48be044786bd1d3ddcom34068.34068.internaldb.Resources_resource_175513.value

If anyone has any ideas I would be really greatful! Thanks.

I recently upgraded to Firefox 24.0. I use Windows 7

It used to be that any time I clicked on a link to download anything, I would be given the chance to choose where I wanted to save whatever I was downloading. The item would also be saved in the download file or directory.

But now, when I click a link to download anything, it just automatically saves to the download directory without giving me the chance to save it somewhere else. So if I want the file somewhere else, I have to open the download directory and move it where to where I want it.

How do I set Firefox so it is like it was before, so that it gives me a choice of where I want to save a download before it starts downloading it? Thanks.

So, embedded Youtube videos suddenly stopped working. I can still watch videos on the Youtube website just fine. Making an embedded video fullscreen also allows me to see it. I have seen an answer on another thread asking to try Safe Mode. Interestingly, disabling every add-on and plugin (besides Flash and Shockwave) does not fix the issue, but using Safe Mode, which theoretically does the same thing, fixes it :S

The embeds are black screen, and when I hover the mouse over them I see the Refresh and HD buttons, but not the Youtube icon on the lower right. Clicking the lower right area still brings me to the Youtube website, so the button still works, just isn't visible. Reinstalling Waterfox and using a new profile do not fix the issue.

I can't test the issue on Firefox because it has a long-standing problem of the Flash Player crashing constantly every second, which rendered it unusable and is the reason I switched to Waterfox in the first place (in which Flash does not crash).

The troubleshoot information with all Waterfox add-ons disabled (which again, doesn't fix the issue, despite Safe Mode fixing it) can be seen by navigating to the "More system details" on the menu to the right.

Thanks!

I screwed up my Firefox and need a *clean* install. Re-installing using all possible combinations results in "Firefox -Choose User Profile" box with nothing in and no way to "Create Profile" - a window pop up for tiny fraction of a second and disappeared without letting me see what's in it. This drives me insane. I do not care for all my previous settings, history, bookmarks - I need a *fresh* install. Please, HELP! Thanks, Vlad

On yammer.com and linkedin.com, images for icons, like those that should display along the top of the screen do not display. Instead, I see a rectangle with numbers and letters. I've seen quite a few articles about the rectangles with numbers and letters that apply to characters but none involving images. I've also tried the steps in the article on troubleshooting images not displaying properly, and nothing seems to work.

Hello experts.

I have a curious problem where the back-button stops working - and other threads regarding this issue has proven unsuccessful in my case, like changing the browser.backspace_action value, resetting Firefox and disable hardware acceleration.

Alright, try this link: http://htmlticker.nmd.dk/udenadform/index.php?page=1 When clicking the number buttons, the page changes - and when clicking the back-button, it returns to the previous pages. So far, so good.

Now, try this: http://htmlticker.nmd.dk/medadform/index.php?page=1 Try clicking some numbers, for instance 1 to 5 and click back. Nothing happens, right? The page reloads, but the browser doesn't return to the previous page.

The difference between the two pages are that the upper link's sourcecode points directly to the ticker HTML, while the lower link's sourcecode points through Adform advertisement engine - but still, it should rewind as usual.

Any bright ideas are much appreciated - at least a reason, so I can inform our customer.

So, I went to check my plugins and the one for the Unity Web Player was disabled, I don't remember doing it and I was just wondering if it may have been done by Firefox for any particular reason.

I can activate it again but I wanted to check in here and make sure it was safe before I did.

Thanks for any help. :-)

Hi,

I cannot get YouTube videos to play in my desktop's Firefox browser. I'm running Windows 7 64-bit with Firefox 24.0.

I have searched for solutions to the problem, and tried all of these:

-Completely clearing my cache -Disabling ad blocking software on youtube.com -Installing the latest version of RealPlayer -Installing the latest version of Flash Player

None of these have worked. Every YouTube video I load just displays a large black rectangle.

What should I do?
