I get a pop up message headed "Adobe Reader cannot show documents in this browser. It goes on to refer to the configuration of the browser. This has only happened since I installed Adobe Acrobat pro. I have uninstalled Adobe Reader and tried a few other options suggested by Adobe and Firefox but nothing has worked. Google Chrome (just downloaded) works ok but I would prefer to stick with Firefox. However I have wasted a few hours already trying to get this sorted and I am behind with my work so need to move on.

I have the same problem with every web site I try. I have just taken one at random below.

This just began to happen yesterday. I have a MacBook Pro 10.7.5. I can always get to the first page that I open in a new browser, but any page after that that I try to open in a new tab will seem to load but the page is blank. This does not just happen with one website I have tried myriad of different sites.. only the first tab loads in a new browser. I am having to open a new browser if i want to go to another link - very frustrating..

Hi there,

Since this morning all my tabs are showing my screen size in the page title. So where normally in Firefox you'd see the URLs page title both in the top of the browser as well as on the tab. Now, all I can see here is 1263x708 [1263x484] I have no idea where this comes from, and no idea who to get rid of it. It's disconcerning for my clients, whom I am showing my work, to think I would have come up with these brillian keywords in the title, that I now cannot even show them...

Can anyone assist me please?

Firefox just upgraded itself to 18.0.1 on my iMac (OSX 10.7.5, Lion) I have been using " Synchronize! Pro " for ten years to synch (or Backup) my iMac to my three laptops.

The Laptops are all PPC (non-Intel)  iBooks of various vintages, running OS X 10.5.8 and 10.4.11.

The synchs ran fine until yesterday, when FF 18.0.1 arrived

Synchronize! Pro synchronized the drnpcf9j.default folder in the Firefox's profiles folder from the pre-18.0.1 version to the same folder in the three PPC laptops running FF 3.6.24 and 3.6.28.

Now, with the upgrade to ver. 18.0.1, it won't synch. The bookmarks are now located in a folder named "Profiles" which contains two new folders , neither of them named the old "drnpcf9j.default" .

How can I synch (or back-up) my new Profiles or bookmarks to the three older iBooks)

The Firefox synch won't work because the older browsers don't have a synch setup in the "Tools" menu.

Suggestions dearly welcome.

Many thanks

I use Firefox on my Mac Air. I've been using the Classic Retweet add-on for some time now, trouble-free.

But it's stopped working, and the timing makes me suspect it's related to my disabling Java in the wake of the security scare.

When I'm on Twitter and click "Classic Retweet", what used to be an editable window with the full tweet and user name does pop up, but it's completely blank.

I checked to make sure that I had only Java, not Javascript, disabled. Javascript is enabled, Java is not.

I do have the NoScript add-on as well, but that's been the case for over a year and they've happily co-existed. I have no other add-ons that might be causing the problem.

How can I troubleshoot to see if the lack of Java is the issue?

It's okay to use small words and speak slowly - I'm not terribly tech-savvy! ;) Thanks.
