Is there a way to make it not do that? (So you would have to press F11 to get out)

MS Security essentials is coming up with "your pc couldn't be scanned" error code 0x800703eb. This happens the day after Firefox 41 installation with no other significant program installation or activity for quite some time. We have had no other security software for several years so that doesn't seem like a possible cause. Any ideas or suggestions? Have others noticed and reported similar problems?

Thanks for any help Hans

Lately, When I log into Facebook, I have been getting an alert that says I have logged in from a different device than usual;

Was This You? You don't usually log in from this browser, so we wanted to make sure that it was you. Login Details Status: Logged out Time: Sunday, 27 September 2015 at 20:37 IP: 2001:56a:72f3:1800:d4f:56cc:3006:94bf

It also states that my location is near Burnaby, BC, using Firefox on windows. I live in Calgary, Alberta.

That is not my IP address and I have been using the same devices. How or why is my IP address being changed?

dupe of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1086066


Hi.

I have a system with Windows XP. I have Firefox on it. The version is 41.0. I recently updated it. Youtube will only play videos at 360p. I installed the 'Youtube Flash Video Player' that allows me to change from Flash and HTML5. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtube-flash-video-player/

a user called jscher2000 suggested this in another thread, I did this:

"Could you check these preferences and see whether disabling them helps:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste media. and pause while the list is filtered

(3) If either of these are set to true, try double-clicking to set them to false:

   media.mediasource.mp4.enabled
   media.windows-media-foundation.enabled (may not exist) "

I have DivX Plus Web-player HTML5 plug-in but it is not signed and cannot be verified. I get this web-page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-on-signing-in-firefox?as=u&utm_source=inproduct


Should I update DivX and download the newest one into Windows? Or this is a Firefox plug-in and Windows XP issue?

I go here: https://www.youtube.com/html5 In Windows Vista I can have all the boxes blue. But not XP. Is it possible in Windows XP?

I'm told that Chrome users can read pages saved to pocket when offline, but it doesn't seem that we can in Firefox - is that true? It would be very helpful if Firefox could directly provide more information regarding the saved pages, including if and how they can be accessed offline. I believe that we have to pay Pocket in order to do that, is that true? Also I have read that even with the paid version, many types of files will not be saved if they are changed by the website, and many cannot be saved for offline viewing at all! It would be really helpful if Firefox could be more proactive about the use of Pocket, and it's limitations. I have tried asking Pocket directly, but their customer service is anything but forthcoming and helpful.

thank you for Firefox, I am a recent convertee, and am loving it, (especially the ability to group tabs.) bookmark feature is nice too.

I'm going through hell to just get the URL for the Firefox browser/start page. I just did a factory image recovery and all I get after downloading and installing the Firefox browser is a tab that says "about blank." I'm not getting the URL in the address bar so that I can put that URL into my home page protection (I'm using Advanced System Care Ultimate). Once I get that URL and place it in the home page protection box of my security software, I will be good to go, because I want to use Firefox as my default browser. I've searched the FAQs and asked the question in every way that I know, in English, and there seems to be nobody out there who can just tell me the URL for this start page. While I don't understand why this is so difficult to get, I certainly need and would be grateful for a fix to this problem.
