When i go to log in on Amazon or even just go to Kroger.com and try to complete a survey, the spaces/bars do not appear for me to enter my information into. I have tried nearly everything i can find including starting firefox in safe mode so it can't be an add-on causing the problem, unchecking hardware acceleration, and a number of other things. This problem does not happen when i use Internet Explorer on the same computer. It might also be a problem on the computer itself but I don't know what it could be. Please help!!

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?

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?

The title describes my problem very well. Since 2 days ago, I can't watch any Youtube videos. Every time I want to watch a video, I get the same message: An error occured, please try again later.

I am running the 25.0.1 version of Firefox, and just minutes ago I updated the latest Flash Player, and Flash Player director add-ons.

Any help would be much appreciated.

My main email address is what my gmail, google, and maybe other things have been linked to since day one.

 I added another email address a year or two later, and I choose a name I liked better, and have been using this second name for most everything for a long time.

So I am thinking I may need to change my email to my original email, so everything syncs, or run smooth.

 So that is my question, and hopefully you will have an answer

All this automated stuff looked good, but didn't really tell me anything. So I am hopefully you can answer my question. Thank you for what you do........... Mike

Hi,

Everytime I open a new tab on my computer, a message pops up with Java script application in a box with a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark symbol. I have to click ok twice before I can continue using the internet.

I removed a bookmark by clicking the star in the awesome bar, and it appeared to go away. Unfortunately, it's a phantom bookmark - it's still there, even with having been removed. It shows up as if it were still bookmarked, but without the star being lit.

How can I remove this bookmark that won't die?

Thanks!

Can a website's viewport meta tag be over-ridden in Firefox?

I'm hoping there's an add-on to override viewport meta tags. I checked about:config and didn't see anything relevant.

A website I use, tumblr, does no browser version checking, and mis-uses the viewport setting to apply a value of "960" to every device. Since my laptop's browser window is 1230 actual pixels, the tumblr webpage is stretched out, which makes images look terrible.

Their viewport tag minus the lesser/greater symbols:

meta name="viewport" content="width=960" id="viewport"

I'd like to override their viewport tag completely, as if it did not exist, or substitute one with content=”width=device-width, initial-scale=1” so I'll have a 1-to-1 pixel ratio.

Not much hope of getting tumblr to stop treating all devices the same; their code to get the language version from browsers for font settings has been broken for years. I have reported the viewport problem to tumblr support, however.

I'm using Firefox 25.0.1 for Windows (Vista).

When I am browsing I get a new window with a message about updating my video player with a popup style window in front that just says accept and install. All my video players are up to date and this sure seems like something that would either be automatic or in add-ons.

I have a screenshot as a jpg if that will help.

Thanks.

m$7 chooses windows media default and c/n get it to open pdf files w/o hassle. I want to put Adobe acro XI on list and as default for 'choose helper application'. Top question answer [from your search] sounds quite simple but an hour of struggling and no luck! I assume m$ 7 wants to make it as difficult as possible to use anybody else's application. They have succeded,,,,, even in firefox they come up as unchangeable default and I c/n even add any one else to list......I need step by step dummy directions...not just go to preferences.... but,. how to find preferences......Mahalo!

Adobe help center didn't help either.........they said just open app and it will appear as temp default.

it did not
