I am on firefox 25 and oxs 10.9, and all of a sudden for no reason, the 2 finger scrolling stopped working. its not the mac because scrolling works on everything else except for firefox. I don't really know what happened. I've already tried reseting firefox and the scrolling will work for a bit and then suddenly not work anymore. if i restart it, the scroll will work for a bout 5 minutes before disappearing.

Hi there,

I know there are some threads about that problem. I do not want to dig deep into that (sending crash reports etc.). With about:config I can manually change the download directory, is there the same possibility for the upload directory?

Regards

Dear,

I am trying to download & convert a video on Youtube through Firefox Add-ons on Mac OS X 10.9.4. When I download there is a message: " [ JavaScript Application ] Conversion requires an external application that appears to be missing on your system. Configure conversion ? ".

I downloaded Java and JDK for Mac but the same message still appears when I download or download & convert a video from Youtube.

Kindly would you please help me in this issue ?

NOTICE: I AM A NEW MAC USER.

Thanks and regards, Omar Bassiouny

Mozilla just did some kind of an upgrade and I've lost the option to save files to anything but my downloads folder.

How do I "right click" and save files to specific areas or folders in my computer. I don't like having to open the download folder and drag the files to where I want them to be.

Thanks!!

I'm using Firefox 35.0.1, which used to remember my password at Moodle, but since an update to Moodle 2.8.1, I may briefly see the stored login info but the screen quickly moves to blank login boxes every time. Yet I can see that it is stored in Saved Passwords. (The password info will save correctly in Safari.)

One of the sites I visit frequently is a news and social media monitoring app, and they have structured their URL naming convention as https://xxxxx.app.company.com/, where xxxxx shows the version of the app you are using.

Is there a way to edit the hostname in that file, so that as the updates occur, I can simply pop the new URL in where the old one was?

Videos embedded into webpages had started not playing for more than a couple of seconds. I could drag to a new part of the video and always the same thing. (No - it wasn't bufferering!)

BBC iplayer had the same problem.

I disabled the Cisco OpenH264 add-on and everything worked again.

I didn't turn it on so it must have happened in an upgrade. My settings are all straight out of the box - I'm not a computer expert - I use Firefox as it comes.

My question - is this normal? Have I solved my own problem or do I need OpenH264?

Thnaks, Andrew
