I began to have printing problems which may have been triggered when printing from the Firefox browser. I did not isolate the trouble with Firefox, but I did determine the cause was an installation of Windows Internet Explorer version 11 which was installed automatically on a Windows Update. I am running 64-bit Windows 7. I determined V11 was the problem by removing updates one at a time then printing from several programs I use like WORD, Excel, Powerpoint, Adobe Reader, Firefox, and Thunderbird. The symptom of the problem was that I could print fine once or twice, but then the communication between the PC and printer (Lexmark S405 b/g) became busy and no other print jobs would complete, even those from two other PCs (neither had V11) that worked fine for printing any print job before an attempt from the PC with V11. Once I resolved the problem to be V11, I did not try to isolate if it was triggered by any print job or one from Firefox, but I a little suspicion that it could be triggered by a print attempt from Firefox since I know I was able to print once or twice before the problem was triggered.

As I am going through videos deciding which one to download then downloading some then all of a sudden without any notice RealDownloader will stop showing up, either in the "download this video" pop-up or if I right click. I've checked the add-ons to see if it is activated and it is. The only way I can restart it is to shut down firefox and start it back up. So I was wondering if there is a way to restart an add-on without a firefox restart.

I am using the free version of Real Player with RealDownloader installed with it. All my programs are kept up to date and I check every so often (like at least once a month) to be sure they are.

The virus affects the restore program. when the user tries to restore an earlier version the virus deletes the stub and the html files. what is needed is a federal agency that can prosecute microsoft. as i said before the best defense is to have a dvd containing all the firefox executables so that we can reinstall without having to connect through internet explorer. I am willing to buy this dvd - i think this is better than making a donation. The laptops are now programmed to have a return to factory installed condition. the dvd would come in handy then. it does mean losing several hours of work but that is the price of an insecure internet.

We have an NPAPI Plugin which is embedding a Windows Application inside Firefox using the plugin container. The application we are embedding is being modified to support IA2 interface for it's various controls. When we embed this in IE (using BHO), it all works fine and JAWS works fine. But when we embed this in Firefox, as we hover over our application inside the FF tab, all we see is "Embedded Object", so basically FF is intercepting the messages and not letting the underlying window get hold of it and return appropriately. Even clicking inside out application doesn't help. Is there a way to tell Firefox that my add-on support IA2 so let it take care of it's own things?

I have the latest version of Firefox (26.0). I'm not sure if a Flash or Java update caused this issue.

Vine videos were playing fine in my browser. This was AFTER I changed the about:config settings for media.windows-media-foundation.enabled to "false" - They never seemed to load when this was set to "true"

But now, the problem is back. Vine videos will not play. I recently updated to Firefox 26.0 and this issue came back. Additionally, I did install a Java update. I have tried EVERYTHING to restore my browser to the way it was but nothing works. I have reinstalled Firefox. I have done clean installs of both Flash and Java. I have tried starting Firefox in safe mode, but the problem remains.

If I go to a Vine page (https://vine.co/v/heXdnb0m3dm) for example, all I see is a static image. I can't click on anything. It's just a static frozen image. On Twitter, the same Vine video appears as a black screen where it previously used to load just fine. Even on Tweetdeck, which uses Firefox as the default browser, the videos will no longer load. This is all when media.windows-media-foundation.enabled is set to "false"

If I change the settings so media.windows-media-foundation.enabled is set back to "true" then the video plays but I have no control over sound. There is, in fact, no sound. The video plays on a loop. No sound. In fact, I can not even control the sound icon. Clicking the icon does nothing. It doesn't change to signify that the sound is on or muted. It remains the same muted icon.

So, basically if I try to play Vines by forcing them into flash, I get nothing at all. I get a static image. No video. No sound. No function.

If I leave the defaults the same and play them via HTML5, the video plays, but there is no sound and no control.

Please help! I have tried everything at this point!

UPDATE: I temporarily set security.csp.enable to "false" and the pages load up perfectly. Is this safe, though?

I want Fire Fox display its SEARCH RESULTS (not web pages) in the middle of the screen when using a WIDE SCREEN MONITOR (with text size 150% increased).

  • I guess the increased text size affects the length of text folded before reaching the right side end of the screen, but large font size is quite important for me, so changing the font size would not be a fix for this problem.

The link below is an image of my screen. http://www.fastpic.jp/images.php?file=8926352964.jpg The monitor resolution is 1920*1080. The right side is of the screen is empty so the best sitting position is in front of left side of the monitor and that is quite uncomfortable.

So would you please teach me how to 1. increase the left side margin (I guess this can be done with an add-on) 2. (Important) reduce the RIGHT SIDE MARGIN so that the text length toward the right side before folded be lengthened and the text be displayed toward the right side end.


Thank you for your kind help.

Our IT department—what a great way to start a question—does not roll out regular updates for Flash. To bridge this security gap for Firefox on my work computer, I copy the following files:

  • flashplayer.xpt
  • FlashPlayerPlugin_<version>.exe
  • FlashUtil32_<version>_Plugin.exe
  • NPSWF32_<version>.dll

from C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash on another machine and paste them to C:\Users\<myusername>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Plugins on my work machine. When Firefox starts, it scans the various locations (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Plugin_scanning) and finds both this version and of course the outdated version originally installed, which IT does not update (currently 11.1.102.55). This effectively updates Flash, and until IT finds a solution to distribute updates I'll have to continue to update Flash manually (Java is unfortunately not so easy to fix), but still leaves me with a problem.

My perceived problem is that Firefox still scans the default installation directory of Flash and thus finds the outdated version. Under Add-ons > Plug-ins, I can select from "Ask to Activate," "Always Activate" and "Never Activate." If I select "Ask to Activate" for the current version (12.0.0.43) and "Never Activate" for the old version (11.1.102.55), upon restarting Firefox it sets both to "Ask to Activate." I conclude that Firefox does not treat separate Flash versions independently. Since constantly being prompted to activate Flash is bothersome, I could just set both to "Always Activate," but that leaves an old, even-more-compromised-than-the-current version of Flash activated.

The best solution, I suppose, would be to uninstall the outdated version of Flash, but I don't have the administrative rights to do so, and don't want to pester our IT administrators. I could prevent Firefox from scanning the directories specified in the Windows registry for PLIDs (see above link), but this would prevent it from finding my also-outdated-but-only-installed Java Plug-In, which I keep thinking I need. The behavior I'm after is to prevent Firefox from scanning or finding the old Flash version, while still finding my Java Plug-in. How could I go about this?

Thanks

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 Firefox 26.0 Not an addon issue - I've loaded up Fire Fox 2.6 and the same addons on a different computer and experienced no problems. Addons: Noscript (added after problem occured, not the cause) Adblock Plus, Adblock Plus Edge, Adblock Plus Popup Addon Plugins

  • Shockwave Flash 11.9 r900
  • Google Update
  • Next Generation Java Plug-in 10.51.2 for Mozilla browsers
  • Unity Player 4.3.1f1
  • Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 11.0.03
  • NPWLPG (did some self research on this, windows live photo gallery plugin. Not the cause)
  • Roblox Launcher Plugin

Computer is free of viruses. Scanned with Malwarebytes, Spybot Search and Destroy 2.0, AVG 2014, adwcleaner (powerful adware cleaner) No reset option for Firefox 26.0.

Whenever I go to a page on Firefox, such as google.ca (I'm living in Canada), the URL bar shows the URL for a split second and goes back to "Search or enter address" as though I haven't typed anything in for the first place. However, when I right click the URL bar when this happens the Undo option is selectable and not grayed out. When I clicked Undo the URL, https://www.google.ca, was back like normal.

The other issue is that whenever I'm typing something in on a webpage, like a search on google.ca, if the URL bar is blank like usual the | that appears when typing jumps to the URL bar and continues typing there. It is HIGHLY irritating whenever I'm trying to write a lengthy forum post and such or a quick search on YouTube and it cuts off and starts appearing in the URL bar where I need to click where I was previously typing and continue. I don't understand what's going on.
