UTube will start the movie OK, but stops a few seconds in, then buffers the feed?, and then continues. Sometimes it doesn't continue. I have a rather slow dsl connection - ethernet to my 2011 imac running 10.7.5. My question is: Is there some way to re-set the buffer settings so the videos play without stopping?

Is there any chance SpiderMonkey 24 broke Pintrest?

Hi,

I'm not sure where to ask this, so, well, here... This is about changes to the SpiderMonkey javascipt engine between Spidermonkey 17 and Spidermonkey 24.

Firefox 24, 25, and 26beta for Win7 don't seem to display scripts on pintrest.com correctly. Menus on pintrest draw with no content, or cause error messages, or pages are displayed with no content except headers. Parts of the page that aren't scripted seem to work correctly, so I'm assuming this is something with javascript.

Firefox 21 - so Spidermonkey 17 - does display pintrest correctly.

I wondered if something had changed between Spidermonkey 17 and 24, and whether I should tell someone so they could check. But, I don't know how to test this further, or where to ask, or how to do a bug report...

Does anyone happen to know what I should do next?

Sorry to ask dumb newbie questions :)

And thank you

I enter the first few characters of the website - I can use the down arrow and Enter key to select the website but nothing happens. I have the correct website address but neither right-arrow nor the Enter key (again) work to take me to the website I want to visit.

This problem has only since I upgraded from FF 24 to FF 25.0.1.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Ever since I made my new PC, I have had a problem with all browsers not loading images progressively. That is to say, images wait until they are fully loaded until showing up. This is extremely annoying as it makes browsing slower on my already slow Australian net. I have tried going into firefox safe mode and disabling plugins such as nvidia 3D.

Anyone have any ideas as to how I can fix this?

How do I stop Adobe Flash from opening an instance of Firefox (and thus overwriting ALL of my recently closed tabs) when it installs?

I tend to keep a lot of tabs open, and I rely on Firefox to remember and open my recently closed tabs every time I restart my computer. However, when Adobe Flash updates, it launches an instance of Firefox to advertise itself, thus overwriting all of my closed tabs and any chance I have of retrieving these websites. How can I make it stop doing this, or how can I make Firefox disallow its ability to do this?

I am using Firefox 25.0 as default and running Windows 7. When on the internet whenever I click on an email to open it or click on a news item with video content I get another website, e.g. Vube.com, or Arcadehits (something of that nature) opening up either behind or in front of the window I need to use. This is becoming most invasive. I have scanned the computer with two anti-spyware/malware programs that found some problems but which did not stop the problem. I have deleted all programs and downloads that either I do not recognise or do not want anymore again to no avail. Any solutions anyone?

I'd like to prevent Firefox from remembering login data. Specifically, my login name for Websites. When I go to eBay, for example, and start to type-in my username, Firefox suggests the proper name, signifying that it's stored somewhere. I know the login info can be cleared, but can it be prevented from saving in the first place?
