(firefox = 3.0.19) I followed Sun's instructions putting the link to the correct .so file to java6u20 plugin but that did not help. I tried clearing cache. still nothing. I have another PC with firefox3.0.19 and there is no java plugin but there are two flash plugins (1 free, the other non-free) it is at ubuntu8.10 and java is working just fine in that firefox. I have followed all of firefox's steps for enabling java in the preferences dropdown. I can provide more details if you need them.

I want to erase all certificate exceptions, that is, go back to the original default set of trusted SSL certificates. I've found the Certificate Manager and its big lists of trusted things, but I have no idea which of them ship with Firefox and which of them were added by me at some time in the past. How do I do this?

Firefox automatically updates to 3.6 when I reboot and I can no longer view flash files. When I reload 3.5.11 everything works fine until I reboot, then Firefox automatically reloads 3.6 :-( Is there any way to turn off the auto update, this is a suck ass feature! Also, some web pages are not rendered correctly. You may want to test your software a little more before you push it on to us.

Google docs now gives the following message when using the spreadsheet function: U geeft Google Documenten momenteel weer in standaard HTML. Schakel over naar een ondersteunde browser om Google Documenten in realtime te bewerken en te delen. Saying it is not compatible with 3.6.12 Twitter is not posting tweets anymore. Other browsers on the same laptop work fine.

Using dual boot OS, Windows XP SP3/ Ubuntu 10.04. Same Firefox v3.16.13. In windows, using the view button in the menu toolbar, I can turn off the menu toolbar. Using Ubuntu, the same option isn't available in 'view'. I've used "About:Config" before, but am very careful and document any changes. Any time I need access to menu items, using windows, I simply use alt=_.

I could not install the flash player on my computer (linux / gnu), then the software maker told me to copy some file to the plug-ins that do not match. Could you help me? Thanks. I'm correcting this post to warn you that I still can not find the directory, ran the operations proposed, but the "terminal" prints permission denied.

Hi there, I just installed Firefox4. I was near perfect although they switch Open in New Tab/Window position. I fixed yet when clicking right on a link using userChrome.css following settings :


#context-openlink {

}	
#contentAreaContextMenu > * {
   -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2;
}


Anyway i have still the same when right clicking on a bookmark/menu url - it show : Open Open in new Tab Open in new Window


New bookmark... New folder...
