Hello, I have no problems playing videos on other sites such as Youtube, but there is one particular site, Democracynow.org, that crashes Firefox every time I try to play the embedded videos. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling...and I tried reinstalling plugins and updating everything. I get this error message:

I just upgraded yesterday and now some sites are issuing certificate warnings. I'm not too adept with all the tech jargon, etc. Just want a simple solution to stop a problem I never had before with Firefox. Don't want to leave for Safari--which does not give same warnings--but if this is too difficult to slave and stop then I will

For the past month, resizing a window on my mac (in firefox only) causes a hard system crash, forcing me to reboot without saving.

Last time I see anyone complaining of this was over a year ago.

My mac is on 10.7.5, and firefox version 40.0.3

I can't upgrade the OS any further for now.

I am also getting the black voids when scrolling or resizing (when it doesn't crash) that other people are talking about.

Fixes? Other than buying a new mac? Can't afford it right now. Just would like this to work right.

Thanks, D

First, I cannot delete the screen telling me my media file needs updating. Second, if I download the pdf it is for windows and I am using a MAC. Third, I have to reenter the original site if I expect to have success. I need to get rid of the worthless site or screen that comes up each time I use firefox.

I am a student and have recently changed schools. When I go to google scholar, I am automatically redirected to a login site for my old school, which I do not have access to; and can't get just the regular site to show up. I somehow set this up years ago so I could login in at the beginning and search for articles through my school library, but now don't know how to undo it. Any help is appreciated!

My computer is OSX 10.7. I've read that in no time Firefox Support will stop working, and the only options given are update my OSX (I can't, since that would make my computer considerably slower) and using Firefox ESR, but I am not an institution (plus it says that support for this alternative browser ends as of 2017) :( What I'd like to know is, is there any other option rather than both stated above? And if not, what would happen if I continue using Firefox without changing anything? Will I still be able to navigate securely? Use the same net access products?

Thank you very much.

Everytime a pop up appears to download the latest version of Firefox 34 (Beta Channel), i.e., 34.2, 34.5...), I select download and then the box just continues to run 'Connecting to server' without ever connecting or downloading. At first I thought it was due to a weak internet connection (tethering from iPhone), but even with wifi, the same thing occurs. Currently, I'm running on Firefox 33.0.

I'm not sure why but in the last couple of months my Gmail search bar doesn't work properly. If I'm in Chrome or Safari and type in an email address in the search bar or type in In: Inbox Is: Unread usually I get halfway through typing the address or that search mode and the complete option pops up. Now it doesn't. If I start typing an email address it doesn't pick it up and complete it, I have to remember the full address. Likewise I don't have the option to start typing from: abc @... and it will find the contact.

I am using an add on so I can use the old Gmail compose not the (awful) new one. Could this extension now be preventing the search from working? I've been using the add on for much longer than this problem started.

I'm on OX 10.7.5 Firefox is up to date 35.0.1
