Shockwave Flash was causing my browser 40.0.3 to start videos I did not want to play, I added an add-on to block Shockwave Flash; however, this became very cumbersome to enable and disable when i go to sites that required Flash like a greeting card site. I found another add-on called "Video without Flash", it told me to remove "shockwave Flash" I did, now I can not get any video on the greeting card site. Is the problem that I removed Shockwave Flash or something else, I have the latest Flash Player from Adobe.

I need some help.

I am currently using the newest version of firefox (just updated, but the problem was there before) and I use Windows 8. I'm using these addons: Adblock, Evernote, Self destruckting cookies, Youtube unblocker. Only the adblock icon shows in my toolbar. I've tried disabling/enabling all the addons, nothing changed. The cookie app works, although the icon doesn't show, but the YT unblocker doesn't work at all (I should probably need to enable it via the icon setting) I use the same combination of add ons on my other laptop, but the problem doesnt occur there! (but it is using windows 7) I've tried using the costumization but my add ons aren't listed.

Hi,

I know you have all seen this question before but none of the answers I have found work for me. My site loads perfectly fine in other browser, just not Firefox.

I have a local website with a style sheet that is saved in the same folder:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" />

I have defined the character sets in the HTML and CSS documents:

HTML = CSS = @charset "UTF-8";

I have both the latest updates for Chrome, IE and Firefox as of today.


Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

With Windows 10, I had a horizontal bar at the top that held tabs I wanted to use regularly. That entire horizontal bar of tabs is gone, along with the button to reveal the overflow tabs (that had no room on the horizontal bar).

First - What did I do to lose that entire bar, and Second why is it so amazingly difficult to bring it back??? I don't know about Tab Groups. I'm not interested in that at this time.

Hello,

Everything was running completely fine in Firefox and then all of a sudden it simply stopped displaying .swf files. Where they should be is simply blank. On websites with a background I can see the background through where the .swf file should be. This includes opening locally saved files as well as every website with a .swf file that's supposed to play.

I do mean suddenly quite literally, as it was right in the middle of a browsing session. I changed nothing, just...one minute they were working fine, the next they completely halted. It's clear the program is recognizing that something's supposed to be there, as Adblock pops up a little "Block" tab over where the file should be, but again, that space is completely blank. It's not black, it's transparent.

I've completely uninstalled Shockwave and reinstalled it from scratch, and "updated" it three times now, all to no effect.

Had to use restore on my computer recently and after I did, Firefox seem to have lost the ability to save the tabs I had open since the last time I used it, can't remember how it was configured to save the tabs after each session. Also the restore previous session was greyed out so the previous session was not kept, was only able to recover some of the tabs by looking through my history, at this time I can't just close Firefox and open it to my previous tabs, it starts from a new session. Will be closing Firefox from now on till a solution is found from my Task Manager, since this usually lets me restore Firefox previous tabs since it acts like a crash.
