I have recently installed Firefox and uses Vuze to download torrents. Vuze does not want to download torrents now after the Firefox upgrade. The fire wall is blocking the torrent downloads. Following message appears: There appears to be another program process already listening on socket [127.0.0.1: 6880]. Loading of torrents via command line parameter will fail until this is fixed.

I began to have printing problems which may have been triggered when printing from the Firefox browser. I did not isolate the trouble with Firefox, but I did determine the cause was an installation of Windows Internet Explorer version 11 which was installed automatically on a Windows Update. I am running 64-bit Windows 7. I determined V11 was the problem by removing updates one at a time then printing from several programs I use like WORD, Excel, Powerpoint, Adobe Reader, Firefox, and Thunderbird. The symptom of the problem was that I could print fine once or twice, but then the communication between the PC and printer (Lexmark S405 b/g) became busy and no other print jobs would complete, even those from two other PCs (neither had V11) that worked fine for printing any print job before an attempt from the PC with V11. Once I resolved the problem to be V11, I did not try to isolate if it was triggered by any print job or one from Firefox, but I a little suspicion that it could be triggered by a print attempt from Firefox since I know I was able to print once or twice before the problem was triggered.

Hello, after update to Firefox 26.0 (CS version, but as I checked, e.g. SK or LV versions does that too, I did not try EN version), my pages (written in PHP, running on Apache) after sending form with method POST starts to ignore header content-type charset=utf8 and broke the encoding by reset to win1250. In older versions of Firefox and other browsers, no such problem appear. I did some search in older messages, but without result. Could you please suggest some solution? Thank you, Lida Chroma

As I am going through videos deciding which one to download then downloading some then all of a sudden without any notice RealDownloader will stop showing up, either in the "download this video" pop-up or if I right click. I've checked the add-ons to see if it is activated and it is. The only way I can restart it is to shut down firefox and start it back up. So I was wondering if there is a way to restart an add-on without a firefox restart.

I am using the free version of Real Player with RealDownloader installed with it. All my programs are kept up to date and I check every so often (like at least once a month) to be sure they are.

Days and days wasted following boilerplate instructions. Disable hardware acceleration: blah blah blah- Edit flash MMS.cfg file - blah blah blah pages freeze - pages turn white- ball spins endlessly. uninstall - reinstall program ...uninstall profiles...plugins on plugins off ...blah blah Blah Win7 64bit - did system restore. Total waste of time. Please Give us a chance to go back. Many report the same problem, yet you act like it's never happened and offer the same lame corrective steps.... Shame. Why lie??? Why lie??? Give us a link to revert, or tell us your done trying so we don't waste any more of our time our time in futility.

When I updated to Firefox 25.0.1 all my add-ons were gone so I downloaded some of them again. My problem is with Flashgot when I downloaded it I can add the Flashgot (thunderbolt) sign to the toolbar, but the Flashgot media icon (which looks like a cinema reel) is not visible.

So basically when I try to add add-ons I right click on the Firefox toolbar which gives me the option to "remove or add items" by dragging them. So I dragged Flashgot media (called FG Media) (which is not visible in the menu by the way) and predictably was not visible on the Firefox add-ons toolbar

Anyone know what's up?

Can't think of a proper title, sorry. But anyway, good day to everyone.

Before, Firefox had this option of disabling images from loading on websites. Recent Firefox updates removed that feature, but I'm okay with that, but... How am I gonna view/enable the images again on the sites I have included in the list of auto-disable image display? =/

I tried the Right Click > View Page Info option and unchecked the checkbox that blocks images from loading in the [Media] tab, but every time I close it and refresh the page, nothing happens and the checkbox is checked yet again. Same goes to the [Load Image] under the [Permissions] tab. =/

So, uh, yeah... Help?
