hi,

i just wanted to check my plugins update, because firefox was preventing java and flash player to work. So, i entered the plugin page and clicked check for update, i came to page https://www.mozilla.org/tr/plugincheck but i am waiting to much for your page's finishing its work. a circle is turning turning turning near "Checking with Mozilla on the status of your plugins", but no result. i only have to plugins java and flash player. why it is taking too much time to check plugins?

I decided to check on the "tiles," about which I knew nothing before now. Today, I noticed that Firefox knows exactly the number of messages I have at Facebook. If my collected data is in the aggregate, without any identifying information, how the hell do you know this? Opting out now, but I am very surprised to learn this.

I had to change my motherboard and processor the other day and immediately after that incident, I seem to have lost all of my passwords. The reason I'm certain of this is because the only password that's saved is from a site I only used after this incident. The only thing I'd done recently other than change hardware was update firefox to 35.02.

Even after restoring my key3.db to a version 4 months old, not a single difference was made. The password manager still only has that one single username and password, rather than the many I had before. Other than the change of hardware, the boot partition and drives are the same and nothing was uninstalled. Also, I'm not sure if it's related, but my logins.json file is 1KB while the logins.json.corrupt is 109KB. Were the passwords saved in there? What should I give a try?

EDIT: Solved with a post by Chris at http://codeverge.com/mozilla.support.firefox/saved-passwords-disappeared-on-update/2006894 I'm not sure how to close this ticket, so feel free to

To my knowledge, all sites except Twitter work properly. When I read tweets that contain hashtags I see a small space where the hashtag should be ( I can't see the # sign either). If I try to compose a tweet, it disappears as soon as I enter a character from the alphabet unless I place a number infront of the # ie. 3#DOT.

I have tried different dictionaries and settings but nothing works... Google Chrome works fine. One other item that I would like to know about is... with this high res screen, I have to increase the size by 20%.. Isn't there a way to make that a default?

locking as a duplicate or extension of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1045661

When I go to "Tools" / "Plug-Ins" and click on "Check To see If Plugins Are Up To Date" it goes to Mozilla Check Your Plugin Page, but fails to show plugins or checked plugins update status. I am using OS X 10.10.2 / Firefox 35.0.1 / February-7-2015

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_campaign=plugincheck-update

Tried, re-installing over original, clearing cookies, clearing cache and starting in Safe Mode to no avail. Mozilla has gone of track once again. Situations like this are among the causes for Firefox rapidly losing Browser share. Another ridiculous oversight and there's never any support for when things do go awry. No professional concern, with a competent cause and cure. none.

Ironically the "check to see if your plugins are up to date" web site loads the plugins and their update status in Safari and Chromium. But still does not show the plugins or their update status when loaded in Firefox 35.0.1 on OS X 10.10.2.

Need info and a fix, please... Thanks! Whitebuck

Still wondering why, you're losing users

When typing on my laptop keyboard, sometimes the palm of my hand will hit some keys, don't know what or where, and my page might change or I lose what I have typed. Does this have anything to do with the "hot keys" on my key board for my Toshiba computer? Should I or can I turn off hot keys to avoid this? Please help as it is very frustrating when in the middle of something.

I am on a laptop with Windows 7 running 35.0.1. I am not sure what other info you may need. This has been happening for a long time now, but Youtube is now forcing HTML5 video playback, so it is now a bigger issue. This is only for firefox and only on HTML5 video.

The video has severe vertical tear, and actually appears to jump back a few hundred milliseconds every half second or so. What can I do to fix this?

EDIT: Looks like updating my graphic drivers did the trick. Easy fix.
