I just made a clean OSX 10.8 install and naturally installed my favorite browser FF 17.0.1 Was goint to a page to see a quicktime clip and bam no video. Page in question was: http://www.apple.com/iwork/tutorials/#pages-msoffice

I'm using the Quicktime X that comes with OSX 10.8 (updated actually to 10.8.2 now). I tested the same link in Safari and the video plays perfectly fine.

I have been googling allot and tested lots of tips like removing the pluginreg.dat and following many tips found on below links but i seriously cant make it work under FF.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/quicktime-plugin-play-audio-and-video?esab=a&as=aaq

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=611296

http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/930099?esab=a&s=quicktime+dont+work&r=6&as=s

Is this feature really broken? I see lots of people having this problem and no solution right now. Appreciate someone with some insight to dig into this problem and provide a solution or atleast confirm this is broken so we dont bang our head against the wall trying to figure it our :D

ps. Please make sure you are under the same condition as i explained, meaning using Quicktime X and nothing more (like older quicktime etc).

I really love delicious, but now that i have upgraded to the latest version of Firefox, I have to disable all of my delicious plug ins or all of the URLS in the nav bar will be blank. I can only tell what website I am going to by the little logo.

Has anyone found a delicious or other great bookmarking tool that does NOT break firefox in this way? Thank you so much!!

Firefox says JAVA is outdated, JAVA website says it's fine???

I currently have Java Platform SE 7 U9 v 10.9.2.5 and Java Deployment Toolkit v 7.0.70.10 / 10.7.2.10 installed and working fine on my Win XP SP3 machine, running FF 17.0… (read more)

I currently have Java Platform SE 7 U9 v 10.9.2.5 and Java Deployment Toolkit v 7.0.70.10 / 10.7.2.10 installed and working fine on my Win XP SP3 machine, running FF 17.0.1.

When I run an Add-Ons check, it says both are outdated and potentially vulnerable. When I go to the Java website, it says I have the latest version, and when I download and attempt to install, it says I already have that software installed.

How do I get FF to stop giving me false warnings about outdated Java. Ever since FF v13 this has been an issue with various add-ons, false warnings, and extraneous dll files that need deletion. Suggestions? Thanks.

ugh......firefox has been wanting to install 17.01 or 17.04, can't remember which number, it bugs me and bugs me until i say o.k. i'll update my version. so i let it, it has to restart my computer,, then it says just a minute firefox is checking your addons for comparison, or whatever the 'f' it says, then a box comes on and a scrolling horizontal line goes back and forth like its working and the bottom says, this may take a few minutes. well, i wait and wait and wait and wait and wait and wait and........nothing. i can't cancel it i can't x out of the box...i've let it do it for over and hour and it does nothing.....so i have to use internet ex. i've redownloaded firefox from there to try it from scratch and same thing happens, if I say cancel to the box right away it stops then nothing and i can rehit the firefox button and it will load firefox. but never fear....another box comes up later and says you need the latest version of firefox....man if the system on your end isn't working, can't you guys see this? I'm disappointed that you have sold out not too long ago too. and the ads and slowness and privacy is becoming more of an issue

Bing and Google and facebook are not welcome. They have this huge bluster of entitlement. If i wanted them I would invite. It is like if I sell you a product at your door and instead of thanking you and leaving I barge in and insist you buy something again and again. To top it off I refuse to leave and apparently the law is on my side. I dig in and sell and push and crush even any attempt for you to just ignore me. I am a one percenter (1%) and I am fully entitled to take and take because life owes me a living. Sorry 4 the soapbox.

What I want is a Firefox browsing experience minus the above. Will I need to learn code to mold my own UI?

I greatly appreciate any consideration.

I had went into the task manager and accidentally deleted the firefox task the was going. When I went back on firefox, all my bookmarks were gone. I tried restarting it, without any luck. I tried getting the backups, to find I had none. Nothing has worked for me. Thought originally I was trying to get google chrome on my computer, only for that not to work, so I'm not sure if that may have messed it up or not. Please help me.

Auto-complete is working for my frequently visited sites except for recently failing when logging-in to my Internet banking facility. No longer is my banking user name available as the drop-down list of several users no longer appears.

I checked with my bank to be assured that auto-complete has not been blocked by default within the site configuration.

As this is a recent failure I have to wonder, as the bank has disclaimed responsibility, whether auto-complete can be restored for this one site.
