Running Firefox 36.0 on WinXP with Symantec Endpoint 12.1. I keep getting an Endpoint pop-up message saying "traffic blocked from : firefox.exe". What to do ?

Firefox seems to be working OK, in spite of the constant pop-up messages, which are annoying but nothing more. I'm wondering if it's safe just to enter Firefox.exe as an exception in Symantec Network Threat Protection, or would that leave me open to a hacker posing as Firefox ? I could just disable the Endpoint threat notification, but that would conceal real threats too.

I had just upgraded my KMPlayer and the new player installed a key-find add-on which ruined my whole internet browsers.. setting from firefox, to IE homepage into key-find page, I tried to change the homepage into show my last session one, and it always reset back to the Homepage, which is the key-find page

and after I uninstalled it, it's still having the effect there so I thought to change it from regedit, but I can only change what opened in my homepage, the homepage no longer key-find page, I changed it to www.google.com But the problem still lingers, tried to switch the homepage to "Show my windows and tabs from last time" it will always reset to the homepage option..

anyway to help me clean this mess up? it's bad because I can't use my last session tabs because it's faster than clicking bookmarks..

I recently purchased another Windows computer. I installed Firefox and attempted to import my bookmarks file (html). I was only able to import folders in my bookmarks and nothing else. I then open my bookmark file in Firefox and the bookmarks I want are still there. The bookmark file is 15.8 mb in size. Do I need to split up this file and, if so, how would I do that?

Thanks!

On a new install of Firefox (new laptop) i have many sites that show a grey box saying that a plugin is required to display the content. Clicking on the box does nothing so I don't know what is required.

Previous versions of Firefox told you what was needed and assisted in fixing the problem. (as far as I remember) IE and Chrome work fine on these sites.

one site is: http://www.allboat.co.nz/

I'm building an online language learning platform. Part of our functionality will be to have direct communication between teachers and students with the least amount of trouble. This Firefox video is awesome, because teachers and students can share a link within our chat system and start thier lessons right away, and it will take away an amazing amount of coding hours to have something similar.

Can we kind of customize this service? Maybe we can work together somehow and support each other? Oh, I didn't see a chat functionality in the video system, I think it will be a great addition if you can have it in place.

Thanks.

Hello,

I seem to be having a problem. From time to time, what appears to be Chinese characters/radicals appear on my tabs - as shown in the image. I have 'refreshed' firefox a couple of times but I can't seem to narrow down where this is coming from or why it is happening.

I'm not sure if my system or version of Firefox has been hijacked, or if it's an add-on that is allowing an intrusion. Well - really - I'm not sure what's happening.

Any ideas?

I recently started seeing a lower quality font display in my web based email program and can't pinpoint it to anything that changed on my pc, unless it was an update to Firefox. Also noticed that the headers of Google search results have tiny dots on top of all the letters.

The two images show my web mail in Firefox and also in IE which is how the fonts used to display in Firefox. I also noticed that this is happening on seemingly random emails as some actually display the font correctly. I am running ver. 36.0 and it is up to date.

Well, I've been trying to upload the images for a while now, but I can't see if there is any progress being made. I can email the .png files if anyone is interested. Thanks.

We have, or are using the most current updates and yet, the Firefox Browser is constantly asking to update our existing plugins. Is this a problem? I.E. : When we go to install the "outdated plug-In" the installer says we have the most current version, do you want to install the older version, or overwrite the existing version?, (Naturally we so "NO").

When I use Google and I click on a search result it opens a new tab where it used to just take me to a new page in the tab I was using I was looking in the tabs tab in options and saw I could choose it to open in a new window but I don't see an option to open it in the current tab. This started happening out of nowhere.
