Every once in a while I'll get a yellow bar across the top of whatever website I'm on, claiming that an addon has been disabled, stopped working or is not compatable. It has a link to see what the problem is and this page is the one attached to this.

It displays no missing addons and the link to fix it is as not helpful as it just takes me to the addon homepage rather than the page for the replacement/updated addon.

Getting very bored of it now as it happens about once or twice a month and has been happening for several months. If it told me which addon was bust I could at least have a clue of what to look for but with zero addon listed as broken/missing/not compatible or whatever this is clearly impossible!

I wish I was a computer nerd but I'm not so, any helpful and jargon and code free suggestions welcome.

Many thanks.

This is the only browser I get this error on. Trust me, I've tried them all. Channel 4 offers no help and I can watch flash video fine on other websites so I don't know what to try. I do know that when I click the top it asks me every time if I want to enable flash and when I click yes nothing happens. Refreshing does nothing except untick "remember this decision" and flash is listed as always active in add ons. It's as if that page doesn't think flash is enabled but refuses to enable it.

(I just want to watch gogglebox in peace)

(Before you ask yes I disabled my adblock and pop up blocker)

Why does the DNS of my browser constantly switch itself to a Belguim location even though I have manually set all of my network adapter DNS to USA?

I have tried everything I can think of to manually set the DNS addresses in all of my network adapters and when i first start up Firefox, it shows my DNS (using whoer.net) as the one I set it to. But usually after about 5 or 10 minutes it starts showing either two DNS addresses, the original one I set and also one from Belgium (194.187.251.66), or just the one from Belgium, for some reason. Is there any way to stop this from happening? I am using a vpn and socks5 and if the DNS location does not match my IP address location, then it looks like I am attempting to hide my location.

Thanks for your assistance.

Show tab previews in the Windows taskbar: When you move your pointer over the Firefox icon in the Windows taskbar, Windows will show you a preview of the Firefox window. With this option check marked, Windows will show you a separate preview for each tab.

This used to work. It doesn't anymore. It works on my laptop, not my desktop. I've clicked this option and relaunched Firefox, but it doesn't help. The taskbar preview works with other programs.

I need new fonts for Open Office but any instructions for adding new fonts say to follow instructions for adding fonts to my browser, which is ?Firefox. But I can't find anything in Firefox to help me do that. I have downloaded several zip files and have unzipped them but they remain in my download file. Where should they be for use by OpenOffice?

I have had two links that won't open in webpages in FF. One was a MD government page, one was a private school webpage. They wouldn't open in safe mode. They won't open after a re-start. I have not un/re-installed or cleared cache/cookies. Most other links will open, and even the two lonks that won't open WILL open in explorer. I checked the add-on manager and it says I don't have any add-ons of this type installed. I do not understand add ons, but I read the FF update about extensions. I am not techie and do not understand enough to make sense of the self-help articles.

Since your last update when I try to load my temporary website to work on it in GoDaddy it goes to the page but the site won't load. Just sits there with the little circle in the middle going round and round. Everything works fine on Chrome and Explorer.

Just tried it again and now it won't even let me go to the editing page or show link to editing page. When I click on "Manage" for my site all it does is show me a page with the expiration date.

I hope you can get this fixed. I hate Chrome! Every time you try to go somewhere it takes you to an ad site or a popup blocks your menu bar.

I want to disable and/or customize certain keyboard shortcuts that come standard in Firefox. I've tried the Saka extension, yet there is zero documentation on either Mozilla's or the Saka developers' end on how to change browser default keybindings. There have been multiple forum threads asking this same question, yet nothing has yielded fruit. Please, I don't want to keep hitting Ctrl + Shift + Q every time I try to hit Ctrl + Shift + A.

Firefox shows the loading circle when I click on it, but it goes away shortly after and doesn't launch. My computer is not at fault because it runs everything else perfectly. I have uninstalled, restarted, and I can't do the new profile thing because Firefox doesn't launch and profile manager won't recognize the application.

I'm on a (work) laptop, Windows 7 SP 1. I use Firefox (64 bit) as my browser (59.0.3). Every now and then both google.com and maps.google.com stop working. They scroll and scroll and never come up. Yet news.google.com will come up. Only way to correct it is to close Firefox altogether, but if I'm working on other sites and can't lose that data, I can't close the broswer.

Anyone know why? And how to correct it?
