A slightly different twist on the FF & Flash 11.3 compatibility issue: Twitter.com does not work properly + one other website

Website #1 - On twitter.com, when you start to do an @ mention to someone, you start writing out their name after the @ and you get a dropdown menu of users whose names kind of match, and then you pick the one you want. Likewise, for sending a Direct Message to someone, you click on "New message" in your DM inbox, start writing their name, and you get a dropdown and pick the one you want. Ever since Flash updated to version 11.3.300.262 I can no longer access either of those dropdowns so I have to write the names by hand and hope I got it right.

Website #2 - http://tv.dfb.de/index.php?s=1&c=2&p=1 None of those videos play anymore.

Both of these work OK on IE.

Funny enough, YouTube DOES work in FF, as do videos on the main Yahoo website... which is what I was expecting to not work!

I Disabled my Real Downloader plugin on FF (even though I really want to have it, because I do use it; but since Flash updated [June 25th - I'd been delaying updates bc I knew of the incompatibility] it wasn't working on FF anymore anyway (I really would want it to work; I hate using IE) ... Anyway, disabling RealDownloader didn't help. I didn't completely uninstall it from my computer because, like I said, I use it, and even though it's cumbersome, I can load up IE and download videos from there.

Should I uninstall Flash and install 11.2 again? (I saw it's lacking in security fixes, so it's making me raise an eyebrow at this) Or is there a new fix I can try?

Thanks in advance for your time and help!

Okay this is possibly a strange one.

Since about the start of April I have had a recurring problem with Firefox where when the contents of a tab refresh (for example, on the tumblr dashboard), the contents of said window will appear over the top of any other window I have open.

For example: I have firefox open with the tumblr dash open, or with echofon enabled, and I also have (for example) Excel open with a spreadsheet I am working on.

Both windows are maximised, and Excel is in focus - over the top of Firefox.

Firefox is not visible at this stage, except for its bar on the taskbar.

Firefox then refreshes tumblr/echofon/whatever it is that is refreshing.

This for some reason causes the Firefox window to be rendered over whatever is currently in focus - for example Excel - but does not bring Firefox into focus. To get rid of this I have to bring Firefox into focus and then go back to the program I was using.

Hello all, as far as I know I didn't install the Google Toolbar, however when I go to open a new tab now I have the thumbnails instead of my home page. I hate this, and so in researching I found that this is part of the Google Toolbar, I also found that the GTB doesn't work with FF past version 5, I have version 13.0.1.

I believe some other install had a small check box adding the toolbar on like a stow away.

My problem is I do not have an option anywhere to get to the GTB, I do not have that little wrench they talk about, no option under View Toolbars, it does not appear in extensions or add-ons! Only the annoying thumbnails on my new tabs - Oy!

Any suggestions for disabling this 'stow away'?

Much thanks

All programs are up-to-date (firefox 13.0.1, flash & real player download). Firefox will not load you tube videos and gives "an error occurred. try again later." message. Links embedded in flash animations won't load new page when clicked on. All sites work in Chrome or Explorer. Restarted machine - no luck, cleared cache - no luck. This is a recent problem (all worked a few days ago).

Since updating flash a few days ago the plugin has been using a lot more memory than usual. Normally it uses between 150MB to 200MB, but now i have seen it use up to 900MB.

I've noticed that memory use increases by 5MB or more when navigating through a video until i have to terminate the plugin because of the ridiculous amount of memory used.
