I have allowed auto updates of FF to version 17 For all of the updates since I thin FF15 Kasp PM has failed to work with FF but works fine with IE (this is of course highly irritating). The Kasp website forum keeps issuing patches that it claims fix the problem but they don't. The add-on manager in FF always reports PM as incompatible and disabled. Has anyone had this problem and worked out a fix. The Kasp forum showed a bit of interest in my posts but now never seems to answer.

My McAfee SiteAdvisors is activated but doesnt show in the add-on bar. I double checked the situation under « Tool, Add-on, Extensions » and the add-on is enable. Also the « Add-on bar » is activated.The green McAfee SiteAdvisor button dissapeared after firefox update 16.02. I updated to 17 in case it would resolve the problem with no success. McAfee is still working by giving a warning page if I try to go on a suspiscious site. Also in google search result I no longer get the little McAfee evaluation icones.

FF17 Mouse wheel line scrolling too fast, alt+scroll missing

Upgraded to FF17 from FF16. Noticed that when I scroll w/ my mouse it jumps about 5 or 6 lines, versus 16's 3 or so. Also, the old mouse shortcut of alt+mousescroll to scroll line by line is gone. A google search netted me the Gecko wiki explaining all the new mouse scrolling options under about:config, but it was mostly over my head. One part I did understand is the loss of the old "mousewheel.withnokey.numlines" and "mousewheel.withnokey.sysnumlines" strings.

I figured it out by changing mousewheel.system_scroll_override_on_root_content.enabled to "false", and it is working at the same speed as it did under FF16, but the ability that alt+mousescroll provided is still missing. Having the ability to customize the mouse scroll speed (instead of turning off the system scroll override) is still outside of my grasp as well.

I love Firefox, but I have 2 distinctly different needs. I need 2 separate Firefox browsers with very different settings, consistent with very different uses:

1. This use of Firefox will be for visiting many different websites, a wide variety of interests.

2. I need this use of Firefox to be very limited and restricted, consistent with handling personal investments, banking, financial transactions. There will be very few websites, but with extremely secure, private, connections.

This sometimes happens for example while filling in a form on a web page. I intend to copy/paste text into an input box of the form but I accidentally paste it outside of the box. This causes Firefox to perform an undesired search based on my text.

Can this be turned off?

. I cant get Yahoo mail to appear as a default mail option for firefox:

because I cant proceed past the "scroll down to 'mailto' in the 'apps' step of the instructions provided by Support.   I'm stuck there because 'mailto' isn't on the list. 

Right clicking on Outlook(the current email default I cant get rid of)does nothing.

Ive since modified Micro Office and deleted Outlook entirely, but that didn't make Yahoo Mail magically appear as an option anywhere.

I cant get Yahoo mail to appear as an option for default email for Windows 7 either. I can get to the page where you may choose how Windows uses various defaults, but Yahoo isn't there.

I downloaded the latest Yahoo toolbar as I had in the past for IE and nothing changed (what I DID get stuck with is an irritating as hell, loud alert tone that sounds with every email I get--even when there's music playing or a movie on--and flashes me a constant reminder on lower left of screen that I have 785 unread messages)

I have Firebug 1.10.6 installed on top of Firefox 16.0.2. After installation of Firebug I see the bug icon in the upper right corner of my window, next to the home icon. After restarting Firefox, the icon is gone. I don't know how to start Firebug other than by clicking the icon. Please explain to me: how to get the Firebug icon after restarting Firefox, or, alternatively, how to start Firebug without icon.

I just did the auto update so that Firefox 17.0 was installed. Anyway, for whatever reason, Youtube only seems to notice that my Adobe Flash Player add-on exists when it wants to. At the moment, it's not recognizing it, so I can't play videos. I've had to close out my current sessions of Firefox to get it to recognize the Flash Player, and then even then it's a crap shoot. What is going on? How can I fix this? Flash is one of the most basic programs needed in an internet browser, these days.
