I have just recently upgraded my computer and os to windows xp 64bit. i first started using explorer to surf until i went back to firefox due to its superiority. every other program i use the sound works, except for firefox when im trying to use flash. when installed i did not import windows explorer settings. i installed and uninstalled flash 3 times as well as firefox. i have the newest version of firefox. i have installed and uninstalled flash manuelly many times aswell. if it helps at all i have a realtek hd sound card. ive been through all the trouble shooting sites possible including third party sites and yours always putting settings back to the original state after the lack of success. firefox is stock and no settings have been changed, except for that i have adobe flash.

I have this weird problem, when I try to go on Firefox about:config section to add a new string the string isnt added.

I need to add 3 strings in order to get website loading some pictures directly from my HDD.

I have tried reinstalling Firefox, going Safe-Mode to try add these strings, but it wont accept them, no error or anything pops up.

On work I have done the steps without problems, here it works fine.

Troubleshooting information

New String: capability.policy.policynames "localfilelinks" New String: capability.policy.localfilelinks.sites "http://www.fallensword.com" New String: capability.policy.localfilelinks.checkloaduri.enabled "allAccess"

I am using Atlassian Confluence as an intranet Knowledge base with Firefox as the browser. but if I put a hyperlink to a local file Firefox will not open it (I have tried the - http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Error+opening+Internet+shortcut+or+local+HTML+file. -link) but all my entries are as per the recommendation. What I notice is that the hyperlink starts File:\\library\databases\paint.mdb but on the status bar in Firefox I see File:\\\library\databases\paint.mdb (ie three slashes). It all works fine when I open the knowledge base with Explorer.

When I use Firefox to view an FTP site that contains East Asian languages, the page appears with gibberish instead. HTTP displays correctly, only FTP is affected. Opera is able to display the FTP site correctly, so I know that it's not the site that's the problem. And yes, I do have East Asian language support installed (I'm not an idiot).

I launch Firefox with -p switch and profile name. How do I get Firefox to choose that profile as default without using that switch? - needed so that when my mail program launches a browser (as specified in Windows), it launches Firefox with correct profile. At present it uses correct version of Firefox (I also have a Minefield beta installed) but wrong profile.

I need to be able to add some cabinet files to firefox for a specialized spellchecker. The exe file was set up for IE; it tries to work in Firefox saying it is installing, but it does not install. For IE installation I am given an alternative to unpack the CAB and install via INF, but I do not know how to do this in FireFox. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
