I am on Firefox 15.0. I would prefer not to open multiple tabs to get multiple web sites up when Firefox is started. Instead, I prefer multiple windows. Some might have one tab, some might have several. For example, one window might have Gmail, another might have several different web pages related to weather, and another might simply have Google, and another Yahoo, and another, Orbitz. Since there may be five or six of these windows, with multiple web pages, perhaps 20 in toal, tabs get cluttered, and I don't prefer them anyway. I have plenty of memory and processing power.

Interestingly enough, if Firefox crashes, it allows you to restart with the pages it thinks you would want. It would be great to have a Start Firefox option similar to that!

Flash Player for Firefox 24 not working, I believe install directory changes have something to do with it (linux).

I have just installed firefox 24 under debian (wheezy) and am having issues trying to get most things flash to run. Oddly enough Youtube seems to work, it tells me to install the plug-in initially then loads the video up anyway. Firefox throws a pop-up telling me I need to install a plug-in in order to view the content (on youtube, which videos play anyways). Other sites simply don't display the videos. Adobe's site doesn't display their little animation.

My firefox is installed in /opt/firefox

I also have two other directories which I believe are where the plugins may have been installed to.

/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

              -flash-mozilla.so
              

/usr/lib64/flash-plugin

              -homecleanup
              -libflashplayer.so
              -license
              -readme
              -setup

I ran about:config and altered the following from false to true

        plugins.load_appdir_plugins   =    true

To reiterate, my address bar and my entire toolbar have disappeared. I cannot enter any new websites, and I cannot control anything on the websites that I can enter, because my buttons are gone. The only websites I can access are the ones already located in the easy access windows on the 'New Tab' page. I have nowhere to write a new URL. This effectively renders my Firefox browser nearly useless! This must have been caused by a recent update. I can't imagine any other cause of the problem. I'd appreciate any assistance. I've been using Firefox for years; I'd like to continue doing so. Thanks for your time.

Hi! I have an issue. I'm using Mint 16 and Firefox 28. Mathworks' instructions videos won't play saying "Unable to connect to server. Please try using a different browser or try again later. Click here to learn more. Error Code: VE_FMS_CONNECT_FAILED".

Their troubleshooting information did not quite help. Any suggestions? Video does work in Google Chrome.

I am trying to write a script which connects to a remote machine using x display and launches the firefox with youtube url.

Problem is that whenever i try to load youtube url in the firefox , i always get this black screen saying "an error occurred, please try again later".

Firefox version is 24 (for linux) Flash player version is 11.2.202.310

Following are the steps i have tried so far:

1- Launch firefox with a different url (e.g. dailymotion) and it works perfect 2- Used older flash plugin to play youtube videos (flash version 9). The videos are played but higher resolutions (480, 720, 1080) are not available then. 3- Disabled flash plugin then youtube videos are playing (because of html5, but i want to be able to play videos using flash) 4- Disabled hardware accelration in xorg conf file, from firefox preferences and flash player settings by right clicking, but still i get the same "an error occurred, please try again later" error. 5- Deletion of cache and cookies but no use.

Is it possible that the video codec which youtube sends to the browser are not supported by my opensuse installation (openSUSE 11.4 32 bit)  ???

I want to able to play youtube videos some how..


Let me know if someone needs more information.

I may be a sloppy typist, but I'm forever hitting Ctrl-i instead of capitol I, as well as whatever combination takes you forward, back and sideways. I never use them, except for Ctrl-t, which is useful, and the touchpad on my new laptop makes this much worse. I lost several paragraphs in Gmail tonight, when the browser went back. Forward went to an empty page, hardly the first time this has happened. Is it possible to disable the damnable things? This is on Fedora 13 with version 3.63.

have a corporate laptop that needs to use a corporate proxy when connected via VPN or physically to the corporate network. I use .pac format proxy in option of automatic proxy. When i connect to home network same proxy acts like no proxy, and in corporate lan it work as corporate proxy. But from home network when i connect corporate vpn then something go wrong. I can only access corporate links, not any exernal links like google. When i select RELOAD option in automatic proxy, then i am able to access internal as well as external links also. I assume when i connect to VPN, firefox do not reload proxy which he should be doing whenever netwok change take place, and that should be automatic. I have tried "reloadPAC" option with PrefBar tool, but again it's manual option. I want to automate it, like something done on OS level, which can trigger reload option whenever i connect VPN.

Any suggestion?????
