Every time I log out of my university email, my private email which is also gmail, comes up with the remembered password there (but encrypted, not showing the letters/numbers). Can the university gain access through this to my private email password and account? I use Firefox for the university browsing and email as this was what was recommended by them to use. Many thanks!

A while ago, I noticed that the fonts on some webpages all of a sudden turned thin and compressed, and many other fonts didn't display correctly. I tried all the usual stuff (restart the computer, clear the cache) and searched around with no solution, so I reset Firefox to its default settings.

This fixed it, but the issue returned later. It goes away every time I refresh Firefox (resetting it to its default settings), but seems to come back a week or so later. Lately, the time it takes for it to come back seems to be getting shorter. I refreshed Firefox last night, but it returned this morning. I refreshed again this morning and it came back this evening.

The problem is most noticeable on Facebook, which I've included some screenshots of. The top is how the fonts normally look, and the bottom is how they look once this problem occurs.

For years I have been experiencing frustrating video watching on youtube especially. This was even at slowest speed setting. I have DSL. Not the world's fast, but it is DSL. Videos seemed like I was watching on dial-up. Today I went to watch a video and every video screen would claim that my Adobe Flash Player was not updated and posed a security threat. I tried every kind of Adobe update possible. When I finally got to what seemed like the right Adobe page to install the most up-to-date FlashPlayer, the installer froze up. I had to go into Task Manager and stop the download. Finally, fed up with the whole thing, Google, FlashPlayer, the internet in general, I said to heck with it and uninstalled FlashPlayer entirely. It had just been updated less than 2 months ago. Just for a drill, I went to youtube to try to watch the video I wanted to watch an hour ago, and guess what? It played better than any video I've watched on there in years, with NO FLASHPLAYER seemingly installed. I didn't even have to decrease the speed. It was in HD and I was still seeing smooth video. Now why would that be?

I have updated QuickTime to 7.7.6, but plugin check still shows 'vulnerable' version 7.6.9.

I tried a couple of times, uninstalled and re-installed QuickTime, rebooted computer, restarted Firefox. I note that Bugzilla has a record: Bug 1109774 - quicktime info in plugincheck to 7.7.6 which states "RESOLVED FIXED ". Maybe not?

Firefox is Blocking Flash and telling me that it's out of date and directs me to that Flash 11 vulnerability page. I'm running Flash 16, and when I checked for updates, it tells me I'm up to date. I upgraded from Firefox 34 to 35, and it didn't clear the condition. Flash is currently set to "Ask to activate" and the only available option Firefox will allow me to reset it to is "Never activate."

(Oh, and I took a screenshot of it, but it's not uploading.

Hi, just recently my Firefox 35 has been crashing at launch even in safe mode on Mac Os X Mavericks 10.9.5 on a Mac Mini 2.3 Ghz Intel Core i5.

I have tried: - deleting firefox and mozilla folders in Application Support - deleting org.mozilla.firefox.plist - uninstalling flash - reinstalling the browser - downgrading to Firefox 34 and the crashes persist. I haven't had other problems with this computer.

videos and click ads, highlighted and underlined text. thank goodness no popups. This happen on my pc once before too. but it would seem Mozilla would be immune to this kind of hacking.

note the upper right corner of the ad -- these are what replace the website's ads that would normally be there.

anyone know what to do?

I'm NOT computer savvy; when I had my computer in for repairs 2 or 3 yrs. ago, my friend put Firefox in as my default browser, saying it was better the IE. After the latest version's automatic security update, I can't get websites to load. I don't have the time or energy to try all the fixes I've seen, and I certainly don't have the money to get my computer tweaked by a pro! I run 2 security programs, and I'm comfortable with them. I have nothing but the internet to keep me up to date on things & entertained. Can I get rid of this new version & security update & go back to what worked before?The past few days have been a nightmare! Please help! Thanks!
