After downloading RealPlayer to view a particular item, I decided that I did not want RealPlayer after all. 5 plugins associated with the download are listed in the Add-ons Manager and I was successful in disabling all of them. But, there is no apparent facility for deleting them from my browser. Can they in fact be deleted completely from my system?

I find the browser slows to a crawl and all channels of my i7 CPU are indicating high loading. So I shut down the Flash plug-in via Task Manager to restore system usability.

Is there any fix other than removing Adobe Flash - or switching to an alternate browser? Thanks

After installation it told me to update or research several plugins. I updated Silverlight and JAVA. I was instructed to shut down and restart my computer to test the JAVA installation. I did this and the installation is fine. At this point I no longer had the screen with the list of plugins that need updating or researching.

See the B & I above for bold & italics? are no longer on YahooMail Have what looks like empty text box in their place. On Amazon I no longer have the "Add to Cart" option, only "use 1 click" to buy. When I use IE all the missing things are on theses sites.

I am having trouble installing a few add-ons. It started when I tried to install the McAfee Site Advisor, and I figured "Ok, maybe it's just a problem with that" and let it be. I didn't know why it had worked on the family PC but not my laptop, but I let it slide. Just recently however, I was unable to install the Amazon Add-on "wishlist button" OR the "Wishlist toolbar." I even went with the 1.3 one that is supposed to be compatible with the new firefox versions, and still nothing.

The norton tool bar feature which identifies problem sites (safe web) is a good tool and has saved us from many problems. From past experience I feel it is something I must have.

I loaded firefox 4 and while I like the program I removed it because of the lack of that feature but would like to use FF4.

I can't get the Zonealrm Tool bar to install on Firefox 4.0

I have Firefox 4.0 installed. I just installed Zonealarm which has a Toolbar called "Zonealarm Toolbar" included in the package that is supposed to install on my Firefox browser.

However, rather than install the component, I found it listed in the "Add-on Manager" (Extension Tab) as "disabled." Why? I don't know because "Update add-on's automatically" box was checked.

Now what I need to do is "enable" the ZA-Toolbar so the product will perform as it was designed to do. However, I don't know how to get Firefox to "enable" it. Can you tell me how this is to be done?

Odd that Firefox 4.0 does allow you to "enable" &/or "disable" plug-ins, but not a "disabled" extension - no? Especially one the likes of which Zonealarm uses. Or do they? And if so, how is it to be done? Pete

By the way, I have installed/uninstalled both Firefox & Zonealarm Twice in effort to get this thing to work, and no go.

I am migrating from Maxthon 2 to FF 7. In Mx one can email one or many tabs, I'd like to be able to do the same with FF. I ahve Send Tab URLs pluged in, but it only sends all open tabs and there doesn't appear to be any way of setting it to send one tab. Can this be done in FF?

EDIT: Well, I guess i can send just one tab by deleting all the others that appear in the email.

I hope I don't get the "too many characters" warning. I kept it short, less than 100 and it still gave me the warning. The add-on I talk about is the Norton Toolbar. Self explanatory. Why so many FF Upgrades? I moved to FF to get away fr: IE upgrades. FF is far worse now.
