gisteravond kreeg ik op mijn desktop een bericht van dringende update (het leek van Firefox) daarna zie ik alleen iets dat lijkt op internet explorer er wordt gevraagd om die als standaard browser te installeren maar ik kan niet de startpagine veranderen want die staat vast ingesteld ook bing staat vast ingesteld als zoekmachine ipv Google kan ik via een usb-stick Firefox herinstalleren?

ben ik gehackt of is dit een aanval door internet explorer en bing?

Bij voorbaat dank! Met vriendelijke groeten, Jozef Verplaetse

Running 37.0 Firefox on Windows 7 - 64 bit. All updates updated. Flash is 17,0,0,134 and checks out at Adobe site.

This afternoon YouTube videos stopped playing. In the center of the frame are circling dots. The video appears to have loaded, as I can move the time slider and see frames at the various times, I just does not play, just gives the circling "loading" dots. YouTube runs fine in IE. In Foxfire, if I go to other sites, like news and videos/ads play just fine.

I disabled all add-ons, set Shockwave & Flash to "always activate" and still the YouTube videos will not play. Seem to download, just not play.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello,

I've been using my own Sync 1.5 server since January without having any issue until this week.

I am unable to sync my clients, getting the "Sync encountered an error while synching: Unknown error, Sync will try again automatically."

Here's the log: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/8836193

The problem seems to happen at line 101 (on pastebin).

Here's some more info about my setup.

Syncserver 1.5.2 installed on a local server running on Linux.

I have 1 Windows client, 2 Linux clients. None of them can sync. All uses Firefox 38.0.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Phil

I am always logged into three separate Google/Gmail accounts simultaneously. Each is used for different projects/types of communication (e.g. work, personal, side-project). I want to use the share service, but when I click to share it doesn't give the option to choose which account to use. This makes the share service mostly useless. Could you please fix this? Thanks!

I'm using Windows 7 64-bit, latest version of Firefox.

www.vine.co won't load, it just shows this loading circle you can see in the attached file, forever. The website loads just fine in other browsers.

I've tried to load the website with different profiles, safe mode and even in a different PC. The result is the same.

The strange thing is that I'm able to see embedded vines in sites like Twitter, but if I click the "View on the web" link, it won't load.

Please help me.

The startup time of day graph shows no dates and only a green dot in the middle of the screen. Also the time open this month seems to reset to zero every time Firefox is closed. The other bits of information provided in the report like the number of book marks, add-ons and plug-ins seem to be OK. This problem started some weeks ago and although I have the latest version of Firefox installed and tried setting to default settings and refreshing the browser a couple of times the problem has not been resolved. Any other solutions you can suggest I try would be appreciated. I have data sharing set on ON.

No matter what I seem to do, message "plug-in may be busy - continue or stop script" or something close to that, keeps coming up again and again and my PC hangs especially video have a Toshiba Portege running Windows 7 Pro. Have refreshed Firefox but no help. Also keep getting messages regarding Adobe requesting more bytes. Have been to Adobe site but while lots of chatter regarding these type of errors, no real fix seems to be available. I am an older woman, not a techie or 16 years old so these type of problems are really difficult for me if the directions on how to do something are not minute. I appreciate any help I can get and hope I have outlined what is happening somewhat clearly. Thank you very much for your kind attention.

After behaving faultlessly forever, suddenly with ver. 37.0.2 when I opened Firefox browser it distorted the screen so much that I had to discard it. The only time the distortion occurs is with Firefox. I have reinstalled it several times and reset it but no solution. I am now using Chrome but don't like it much. Can someone help with this Firefox problem. I can send a photo of the distorted screen as an SMS or to an email address. Local IT gurus can't explain the cause.

После обновления, в панели поиска (рядом с адресной строкой), я больше не могу видеть какой поисковик используется по умолчанию. Раньше я мог одной мышкой в пару кликов выбрать другой поисковик или точно также открыть нужный поисковик на уже открытой другой странице. Сейчас это ужас, не видно ничего, какой поисковик используется, как мне открыть другой поисковик... Помогите решить проблему, так как это один из наибольших плюсов, из-за которого я пользуюсь браузером Mozilla Firefox.
