I run Ubuntu 10.10 LTSP server/client network and DO NOT want to upgrade Ubuntu... too much trouble, nobody can guarantee it will not hammer my LTSP install and besides, Unity is awful. I need newer Firefox due to some frequently used web pages, so I need an install procedure that will not hammer anything. It's a mission critical user environment. If anybody has positive experience with Firefox upgrade in similar environment please advise.

bp-1ebfd562-c4f0-4c58-a7f9-b19962140128

crash usually happens when I try to upload a doc, after clicking on buttons like "upload resume" type. FF 26 freezes from time to time for about 5-7 sec and than look like everything comes back again.

crash and freeze might be related but they dont happens with the same frequancy. mostly freezes, crash is about twice a day.

addons I suspect are "flashblock" 1.5.17 and "Ads EWOQ Mobile Viewr 1.2" possibly "noscript"

while "Noscript" is not important, I cant do my work without "Flashblock" and "Ads EWOQ".

Alright I have nothing happen when I put something in the google search on the start page. It just sits there. I the awesome bar it works. I have searched a long time to find the answer and have had no LUCK. I am using Zorin 7.1 in VMWare. I have cleared cooking, Cache, and reset FF 26 several times all with no success. I would like to fix this.

This is my first time with a question here is it emailed or how do I get an answer?

I have a Dell Inspiron 3521 with Linux Mint 15 (Olivia x36-64). My Firefox is 26.0. The about page says it's Mozilla Firefox for Linux Mint - 1.0.

I have the latest version of Adobe Flash installed, but my Firefox is not recognizing it. It isn't showing up in the plugin list, so I can't even activate it.

So it's partially functioning, because I went to the Adobe website test page and it indicated that I have it and it works. But things Facebook doesn't work. Can't play games or reach it by external link on my email. This began when I reset my Firefox the other day.

How do I get this thing functioning again?

Okay so I have several Linux devices in sync and one of them is synced also with a Microsoft 8 and the latest updates of Firefox. All of them are updated to the lastest. I had to change my password becaue for some odd reason the pass I wrote down was not being registered in my computer. Now because of that I had to change it for all of the other devices and none of them are detecting the new firefox password change. It just seems like a round circle where I change pass, and I have to continue to do that but each device wants to do the same thing.

What could be done is there some bug with respect to this!? Thanks.

I was NAGGED into upgrading from Firefox 28 (Which was working FINE) to FF 29. EVERYTHING about it SUCKS. NOIA is broken. Cannot download classic restore add on or ANY add on for that matter.

What were the developers thinking ESPECIALLY when the classic restore has been downloaded over ONE MILLION times.

That has to tell you something about perhaps leaving it the eff alone.

Of course I did not image the computer before I upgraded to 29 so not I have to spend hours trying to unwind what the upgrade did

We're running puppy linux so downgrading become a little more problematic

Seriously guys, you forced the FOUNDER out of the organization for expressing his views on a subject and then you cr*pped FF 29 out?

Maybe it's not too late to get him back and FIX what you have done

Really pissed off about this

Linux/Xubuntu running Firefox 29.0 and Windows 7 running Firefox 29.0.1. I have spent the past couple of hours trying to get sync to work with no luck, trying everything I could find on this site, including the links to the instructions and the troublehooting, replies to questions, and even the video.

Am I right in assuming that because the Firebox versions don't match that sync won't work? Or is there yet something else that is the reason? Or can it be done, and I just haven't figured it out?

Thanks for your help.

I'm pretty sure this problem is new with 29.0.

If you customize something (the layout of that new drop-down menu with the three-horizontal-lines icon, or a hotkey for an addon, or whatever), and then FF crashes or is terminated (as opposed to being closed through the in-FF command), all your customizations will be forgotten the enxt time you restart.

And that's stupid and terrible.

Is there a fix for this bug/

If you have noticed in chrome, it doesnt have a title bar which saves a lot of limited verticle space on the screen. In Google Chrome or Chromium seperating tab is on the top. It is not the title bar as it doesnt exist.

I happen to have dual OS, Windows OS 7 & Linux Mint 17 (Qiana). I love Linux Mint more than Windows 7. If only I could move away completely from Windows I would be the happiest person on the face of the earth. But unfortunately we're not there yet. e.g. under Windows Firefox tends to update itself, the moment new version is released by Mozilla. But the same doesn't occur with Linux Mint, instead it keeps on listing various error messages.

At present, under Linux Mint I'm using v33, which Linux Mint says is the latest. Whereas v34 is available on Mozilla site. If I've to update FF from 33 to 34, I've download it then either uninstall v33 + install v34 OR install v34 & hope that it overwrites v33 & hope there aren't two versions running on my OS.

Why can't it is capable to renew like in Mac or Windows, where I go to Help/About Firefox/Update (directly from that panel)? By the time FF v34 is available for update under Linux Mint, there will be another version, which will obviously have more security patches.

One thing I want to clarify, I'm not here to blame any person or group, If I'm able to help I would love to, but this is beyond my expertise, so I'm just trying to raise the issue for the concerned expertise to work towards benefit of all the netizens. If you do have any runaround to this I would really appreciate the feedback. Also this is the first time that I'm voicing my concern, so if I've offended someone, even inadvertently - I apologise. Thank you

Hey,

I have Firefox 35.0.1 installed and last about a week i have noticed my browser being a lot slower than usually. (can not see any notable difference in any other application on my computer). My system is set to fully automatically update applications and system! I heard and read this forum about problems between my current FF version and flash, so decided to check my system regarding to shockwave flash. to be honest, i was surprized. This is what i saw:

ADD-ONS MANAGER: Shockwave Flash 11.2.202.442 Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202 Always Activate

Shockwave Flash 16.0.0.235 Shockwave Flash 16.0 r0 Always Activate

Shockwave for Director 12.1.5.155 Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 12.1.5.155 Ask to Activate


PLUGIN CHECK PAGE These plugins are up to date

Adobe Flash Player Status Up to Date 16.0.0.235 Action Up to Date

Unknown Plugins Adobe Shockwave 12.1.5.155 Research

I am now carefully listening for suggestions such as what to keep, change or remove from my system

Although several sources/users are saying Shockwave Flash 16.0.0.235 is raported out-of-date by firefox and even new out-of-date versions are raported being out, my auto-update system says 235 is up-to-date. How? Why?

My add-ons Manager shows an old Shockwave Flash as well, which is not listed on plugin check page. Might it be involved making 235 listed ok? Why arent 11.2 auto-replaced/removed when 16.0 already exists? should i remove 11.2 or rather keep it over 16.0, which is raported faulty by several users?

Research shows latest adobe shockwave is 12.1.6 over my current 12.1.5. Why isnt that determined by Firefox, showing just questionmark with word research?

PS! are there any explanations for terms: - Adobe Flash - Shockwave Flash - Adobe Shockwave - Which extension does what?

thank you in advance.

edit: added images PS! side-remark: this forum detects my firefox version as 35.0, while 'About Firefox' shows 35.0.1 - seemed imortant to mention

Hello. I have searched and tried to solve this for days now and I simply can't figure it out.

Firefox version: Mozilla Firefox 31.5.3 ESR Firefox plays a presentation with MP4 video.

At first we got this error generally when we tried to play MP4: Video Format or MIME Type is not supported Adding: "AddType video/mp4 .mp4" to the .htaccess file on the server solved that. After this we have been able to play mp4 inside Firefox without any issues. We can even start Firefox from within a script as long as we run this script from the command line or Desktop menu as the standard user.

However running the exact same script using crontab for the standard user, again results in the "Video Format or MIME Type is not supported" error. Export display is set and Firefox does open as it should. Youtube videos and everything else in the presentation is working. We simply just can't play MP4 video content. Just as if the .htaccess information is ignored or what ever else could be the cause.

Anyone who can explain what the differences between opening Firefox from users crontab and users Terminal console could be in terms of playing MP4 video?

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Kind Regards, Kevin
