I'm getting so tired of having that darn 'block pop-up windows' checked..and it doesn't do a darn thing. Why am I getting garbage sites when I'm going to my normal browsing sites? (e.g. yahoo mail, etc)

I now get this weird MacVx garbage showing up everywhere and a bunch of these error messages which are annoying (I also have a Mac by the way)...it mentions 'my i.p. address' which is not correct (thank god), and it must think I'm an idiot...So....any way to resolve this before I trash my favorite browser forever???

An email address is automatically displayed in gmail's google search-box. This occurs only when starting Firefox, and clicking anywhere clears the box content. This anomaly only occurs on one machine, not on my laptop, which is sync to the machine in concerns. It doesn't occur in Google Chrome, etc. Small problem, but annoying, nevertheless... one is never careful enough with virus and the likes. Thanks, Pierre

Question above states it all. I reinstalled Yahoo toolbar. No help. I do have the Yahoo toolbar but all my customizing is gone on it. I can't right click on toolbar to add stuff. I made the mistake of updating to Fox 36 on three different computers. They are all the same now. Lost toolbar. Did not update friends computer and it is OK with showing all the customization on Yahoo toolbar. (35.0) I need to go back to Fox 35. After update to 36.0, there was another update but it didn't help. Thanks

When I try to open the site extratorrent.cc , it just connects to facebook.com for no reason. I tried to connect to the correct address in 3 different ways: 1. From bookmark 2. By typing the address 3. From search engines

But no matter what, it redirects me to facebook or say directly connects to facebook.com It happened with another website but I changed its address in the bookmark and it solved. But this one is not solving. My cache was cleared. I did not try again to clear the cache and check. IE and Chrome are working fine.

EDIT: Problem solved. Reset firefox and it solved the issue.

How do I prevent firefox from using HTML5 player in youtube and use flash player instead? I am not sure what advantage HTML5 has over Flash. I noticed that Flash plays smoother than HTML5 and there is also a difference in quality of the video at low resolution. HTML5 does not seem to have smooth streaming compared to Flash. I may be wrong and I am ready to learn the advantage of HTML5 over Flash. But until then I wish to revert FF to its previous behavior of playing in flash.

If there is no way of bypassing this player (html5), how do I set it to ask before I allow it to play the video? I dislike videos playing automatically as soon as I open the link or any websites (reason why I set Flash player to 'ask to activate').

Thank you for your generous help. :)

I am running Xubuntu 14.10. As you know, Adobe is no longer offering Flash upgrades past 11.2.202.xxx, only security updates. Thus Flash is always being marked as needing to be updated. Now up to Firefox 36 beta 5, it allowed me to set always activate in the plugins section of Add-Ons. Now however, it won't let me do this & my only options are never activate or ask to activate. It is a pain in the butt to always have to say yes, and while I DO click on the Activate & remember button, some sites still pop that up from time to time.

I must also point out Firefox 35.0.1 works correctly & let's me set it to Always activate. Is this gonna be permanent, or is it temporary? And is there any way perchance Mozilla could lean on Adobe to do for Mozilla like it's doing for Google Chrome with it's pepper-flash, which works in Linux as well as windows? ;)

Okay, I know the last question is probably impossible, but had to ask.

Thanks for any help you might have to offer.

In addition to messages about Flash Player possibly being unsafe, when I click on the message I'm taken to the page regarding Java. I do have the latest Java add-on installed & activated as well. I've not checked to see if this affects content, but I'll be testing extensively in the next 24 hours by streaming sports events. I've made no changes to any Firefox options (other than add-ons), and I've tried all the suggestions available on your forum - downloading/installing add-ons produce no error messages.

This is neither urgent nor important, so if this is the only report, low priority.
