Hello all,

In desperate attempts of not using Flash anymore, I set its activation setting to "Ask to activate". Then I went on a website (that uses Flash) and Firefox prompted me whether or not I allow that said website to use Flash. I did not want to allow this site to use it at that time so I first clicked the cross to close the question. But it popped again and I then answered "Maintain the blocking" (or whatever it might be in English).

However, I now want to use Flash on this website while keeping the "Ask to activate" setting. But the prompt does not show anymore even after restarting Firefox. So the question is how one can revert this? How to allow a website again to use a plugin after the user said no?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi there. I am having constant problems when trying to connect to www.pretty green.com.When going to check out it is telling me that the site is unsognes,unsecure and doesn't use encryption.Other people are not seeing this message. I have tried everything from reinstalling firefox to disabling ad ons etc. The website also say it is secure. Why will firefox not let me connect to it and why could it be showing as unsecure? Than you.

When I use a link from a Web site to print the Web site or blog page, the item shows in a printable format in a pop up without a print icon in toolbar or right click options. I used the customize link to drag the print icon to the browser toolbar but it doesn't appear on the pop up printable version.

Any suggestions?

I recently had to install Chrome on my computer to access a program that would not open using Firefox. Then I had to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. Now there are no search engine options. In the Options window, no names show up in the drop-down box for selecting a search engine. Restoring the default engine does nothing. In the search bar of Firefox, nothing happens when I click the arrow next to the search icon - no names, no nothing, and when I enter anything to search, pressing Enter and clicking the Go arrow in the search box does nothing at all. What is missing?

Firefox 37 crashes when using Peacekeeper browser test

Hi guys, I updated my browser with Firefox 37 and it crashes on me every time I use the Peacekeeper browser benchmark test. I've had no issues using the website in the past. Every time I update my browser I run the test to compare previous results as well as compare the results with Google Chrome.

It works fine with Chrome, but keeps crashing just 2 minutes in the test on FF37. I've tried running it in Safe Mode as well, but it still crashes. My plug-ins are up to date and I've tried a refresh as well. I did not have any other applications while running the test, just the browser was open with one tab. I'm running Windows 7.

Here is the Peacekeeper website: http://peacekeeper.futuremark.com/

I've sent the crash reporter to Mozilla.

Appreciate your help...thanks in advance!

Edit: included the Peacekeeper website.

I am using a pair of virtual servers running IIS 7. SSL 3.0 is disabled on both of them. FIrefox, starting with v37 is not allowing users to connect. Anybody else seeing this?

EDIT: I am updating my question because it is sure to come up for others. To disable SSL 3.0 on IIS 7, I used this:

https://www.digicert.com/ssl-support/iis-disabling-ssl-v3.htm

It appeared not to work because firefox had cached the SSL version information and not just the cert. Clearing my cache fixed the problem. Unfortunately, this is going to continue to cause problems for my user base. It is a bad idea to use SSL 3.0. It is also a bad idea for FIrefox to cache the SSL version, IMHO, but there you go.

This is becoming such a pain in the ass that I may just ditch Firefox all together and use Chrome. Just when I get the files working and all those setting figured out, the new Firefox update just blocks PDF files all over again. I've tried all possibilities in the settings. I've even restarted the program, the computer twice, and none of my PDF's view in the browser NOR do they download. ????!!! so frustrating i may just go with another browser. I used to like Firefox but this happens every single time!

Running 37.0 Firefox on Windows 7 - 64 bit. All updates updated. Flash is 17,0,0,134 and checks out at Adobe site.

This afternoon YouTube videos stopped playing. In the center of the frame are circling dots. The video appears to have loaded, as I can move the time slider and see frames at the various times, I just does not play, just gives the circling "loading" dots. YouTube runs fine in IE. In Foxfire, if I go to other sites, like news and videos/ads play just fine.

I disabled all add-ons, set Shockwave & Flash to "always activate" and still the YouTube videos will not play. Seem to download, just not play.

Thanks in advance for any help.
