I've upgraded to Win 8.1, Firefox v26, Shockwave, Flash, and the newest Java JRE's. YouTube videos result in an error message and to try again later. The interesting feature is that IE v11 will show the videos with no error. The Win 8.1 upgrade took away my sound, and I've read the other problems that seem to be related to YouTube and sound. But, IE plays the videos with no sound, so that's not sound related.

Hi, I've just accidentally deleted my whole partition which I save the back up bookmark (.json). I did manage to recovered it from a program but it seem like Firefox unable to process it. And my Sync Data seem to be gone too. And I know nothing about json file (yeah, I did some research but it seem it's out of my range.) I guess anyone can help me?

I have disabled and restarted then re-enabled hardware acceleration, reset Firefox, emptied cache and tried everything I can find or think of to no avail. This just became a problem since I updated to v. 26.0. Have never seen a version respond so poorly.

Much to my horror, Firefox 26.0 does not support the old style download manager anymore :( Really can not believe that they stick to this new, totally not clear download thing :( Anyway, I used the browser.download.useToolkitUI in about:config and that worked great. This is no longer working so I did set it to False. But with using that new download "manager" I only have a "Stop download" button and then a "Restart download". There is no "Resume download" anymore. Did start FF in Safe Mode but it is the same then: no more "Resume download". Either I did mess up something or Firefox developers did screw up the FF Download "manager" even more? For now I assume I did mess up something ....

I understand that Windows 8.1 is now controlling Adobe Flash, but have been unable to find a way to make Flash work in FF26. All I find is a bunch of fingerpointing from each company at one of the other companies involved. There is no comprehensive explanation and nothing from any of the three to indicate a fix for the problem.

What is going on? When is the problem going to be fixed or how do I fix it now.

FF is the only browser I want to use, not IE.

Please post something concerning FF stance and/or solution to being held captive by IE!

Despite all of this, the tabs are "logged out" when I restart Firefox, and sites that have no logins are not opened based on the web address the tab was origianlly set for.

Hello! I have a problem with Firefox H/W Acceleration on my PC. When it's enabled, firefox crashes my system in the least expected moment (usually when I'm just moving my mouse and hover/point some link). I totally don't know what to do, because I love Firefox and it's addons and Firefox w/o H/W acceleration is just slow as molasses in January (Especially on the AJAX and HTML5 websites it lags even during scrolling site). Well.. disabling H/W acceleration seems to be solution but the work isn't just as comfortable anymore. I haven't noticed crashes during work on IE11 with H/W acceleration enabled, and I couldn't check it out in Chrome just because I don't have it installed.

My specs: OS: Windows 8.1 Pro CPU: Intel Core i7 Sandy Bridge GPU: NVIDIA GTX 460 RAM: 16GB DDR3

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.
