I'm running firefox 26 and when I view my plugins (Tools>Add-ons>Plugins), I see both Shockwave for Director 12.0.7.148 and 12.0.5.146. When I click 'Check to see if your plugins are up to date' link, Shockwave for Director 12.0.7.148 is the only one that is listed and shows as up to date.

Is this all right, or do I need to remove 12.0.5.146 and if so how do I do it?

Thanks, Robert

I have had 1-click Youtube video downloader addon installed for a little while now and it has always worked well. However, recently I tried to change to a different addon (in fact several different ones) but the Download button then disappeared. I have since re-installed Firefox and returned to 1-click Youtube Video downloader, but still when in a YouTube video page the Download button is missing, no matter which videos I select.

I would much appreciate some assistance as I use the YouTube Video download option a lot!

I have downloaded and installed CacheViewer 0.7.6. It is visible in my Add-Ons Manager, but I don't know how to actually use it to view objects cached by Firefox. I finally figured out how to use the about:cache function and I think the above add-on will be helpful once I know how to use.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on a Windows 8 PC.

Thank you… I'm learning, or relearning, that it hurts to be stupid : (

Firefox just updated itself to version 26. When I check my plugins, it tells me that the Shockwave for Director plugin is out of date. It says it is Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 11.5. There is a red button that says Update Now. I click the Update Now button and it takes me to http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/. The page says Step: 1 of 3, and it has a little yellow button "Download Now" that takes me to Step: 2 of 3 at http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/download/?installer=Shockwave_12.0.7.148_Windows_Slim_Other_Browsers&standalone=1. But this page does not function correctly unless the plugin is already updated. A dialog box pops up that says --This page contains a new Shockwave format movie that the current Shockwave plug-in cannot handle. Would you like to download the newer version of the plugin? [ Yes ] [ No ] After a couple of seconds a little yellow "Next" button appears on the page, but I have to click Yes or No in the dialog box before I can select anything else. If I click [ Yes ], it takes me back to Step: 1 of 3 at http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/. If I click [ No ], then the dialog box disappears, but there is still no content on the page, just the yellow "Next" button. It looks like there should be some other content that doesn't show up with an outdated Shockwave player. If I click the "Next," it takes me to a page Step: 3 of 3 at http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/thankyou/?installer=Shockwave_12.0.7.148_Windows_Slim_Other_Browsers. A little box pops up for a few seconds that says "Thank you and enjoy Adobe Shockwave Player," but it doesn't download anything and it still looks like there should be more content there that doesn't show up. No matter what I do, it seems there is no way to actually download the updated version, and when I go back to the Check Updates page, it still shows the same old version with the red "Update Now" box.

Should I try uninstalling Shockwave for Director first? I would have tried already, but I was also having trouble finding instructions for how to uninstall it.

I have not updated Firefox for some time, and do not know which version I was using.

I use a Macbook and today I upgraded to OS X Mavericks. However, it updated my Firefox and now I have version 26.0.

The scrollbar to the right has disappeared. To get it, I need to press my down arrow key and then quickly get the arrow onto the newly appeared black bar, in order to scroll. There is no arrows available either and I cannot find out how to add them and the scrollbar back in.

I don't like the apple style scrollbars that hide when you don't use them, which is one reason I didn't update for over a year. I just want a visible scrollbar back and visible arrows I can click on.

Any ideas? I have no knowledge of computer code so am hoping there is a way to do it without having to go into a shop to get someone to edit code for me.

I knew from years ago that you could have multiple profiles in Firefox, and since Chrome is really choking handling games like Farmville 2 lately (not sure why, but Firefox is Zynga's recommended browser anyway), I decided to set up profiles and profile shortcuts. But there's a BIG problem. With Chrome, when I set up shortcuts to profiles, which Chrome lets you do with one click, by the way, if I have one profile already open, I can open windows in all the separate profiles just by using their shortcuts. In Firefox, I cannot. If I have one profile open, the other shortcuts merely open windows in the same profile already open. This is not acceptable. It's not like the profiles are in the same directory. They're in separate directories and there should be no issue opening two or more profiles at the same time.

I've recently been getting a notice that I need to upgrade my Browser. However when I go to Help , About Firefox in my menu. The pop up indicates I have the latest version of Firefox.

I was wondering if this is perhaps a virus, or a scam someone has tried to pull.

The URL for the update is:

http://www.updating-your-browser.com/Firefox/

and to further incriminate the site The fine print reads

I was trying to view a video using Firefox, but the window where the video should play never loaded. It just remained a black image. So I tried the same page using Chrome, just to make sure the site was good, and the video did play using the Chrome browser.

The site I was trying to view in Forefox, but would not play the video, was:

http://www.thedailyshow.com/full-episodes/wed-january-15-2014-robert-gates

I do have flash player 11.9.900.700 plugin (add-o)n installed and activated.

I don't know what else to try to verify, or even if that video is a flash video.

I have reloaded Firefox as suggested. I have clicked "Always" in by System Preferences scrolling. But none of these work. If Firefox does not fix the scrolling problem for the Mac OS X, I am forced to use Safari as my main browser, because the scrolling works there. I've used Firefox for almost 10 years, but this problem is very frustrating.

Amazon Smart Search not only took over Firefox, but Google Chrome and IE. I tried uninstalling anything from Amazon other than the Kindle reader which was installed many weeks ago. This did not happen immediately after I installed Firefox. I was looking at some PC cleaners, and driver updaters, but do read carefully and have no idea how Smart Search took over. I am really pissed at Amazon and will let them know. In the meantime, I have to get it off my other two search engines. I did the somewhat "dangerous" method to get it off Firefox. This may not be the forum for how do I get it off my computer, but if anyone has any ideas of how not to get into this situation again, I would appreciate feedback.
