i am running Firefox v26. I have tried installing the Lync client plugin from Micorsoft, and i do see the plugin .dll in the mozilla plugin folder afterwords, i make sure the config value is set to true for "loadplugin".. i try copying the plugin folder into the browser directory by hand as well (via all the explanations of how to fix this issue), but none of this works. i still get the "get me out of here" page when trying to open a live meeting which navigates my browser to the MS lync page.

unfortunately this may mean discontinuing my use of Mozilla if this issue cannot be resolved. Microsoft Office 360 and Microsoft Lync are seeing wide distribution now, and my company won't allow not migrating to it. but this now means i can no longer really use Firefox at work which is a very very sad day indeed.

I work at a middle school and manage student a few hundred student voicethread accounts. Voicethread is a presentation tool that gives students a chance to combine images, video and their narration. I have used Firefox to both access and create voicethreads in the past. Late in 2013 I began having problems accessing my voicethread account whenever I was using Firefox on my main desktop machine. Whenever I would get to the site, I would see the voicethread homepage for a moment, and then the window would turn into a field of white. At first I thought it was a voicethread problem, but now I realize it is a Firefox issue. I say this because I can access my account on other machines using older versions of Firefox, and I can access my voicethread account using Internet Explorer on the same machine that won't allow me into voicethread if I'm using Firefox. I have taken a screen capture video of the issue that you can access by clicking: http://screencast.com/t/BVcYX5G1p

Any help would be much appreciated

Ever since last week up to 2 weeks ago my Firefox Browser (26.0 Version) will just stop working and say (Not Responding) like ever 5-10 minutes, even reset the browser and even put it in Safe Mode still the same thing happened and it will freeze my computer to where I have to shut it down. Also I have run my Microsoft Security Essentials anti-virus, malwarebytes, and superantispyware software (not at the same time obviously) still nothing and run C Cleaner, and then if I am watching a movie, listening to music or playing a game in the browser or Spotify it will say plug-in not working and asks me to shut it down, same thing will long scripts and I don't understand this I am at my wits end what do I do? Because this is becoming ridiculous real quick! Thanks in advance for anyone who can help me answer this question!

Today, I wanted to view a model on thingiverse using their thingyview. This javascript 30 viewer uses webGL. I remember using it in former firefox versions quite often.

Now, it won't work. It works in Google Chrome and Opera with no problem, so I assume this must be problem of browser configuration, not drivers.

when i play a youtube video in nightly brower and the video is finished , it repeats it self from the beginning then finishes and repeats again and again. so how can i solve this problem, because repeating videos consumes my internet bandwidth specially if i was in facebook and played a video in the facebook page itself. note also that i have download an addon that allows full youtube video buffer (youtube center addon) so the solution in my case is not pausing the video. thank you.

Seriously, more and more people are leaving Mozilla because of constant crashes after opening few tabs. I don't like google chrome as I am using this browser for years and the only thing I hate here is crashing. If chrome doesn't crash, why can't you copy their solution and stop crashing in new version of Mozilla firefox? My internet connection is fine, so is speed, so there aren't some other causes of crash, and many Mozilla users I knew stopped using it and are now using chrome. Please do something about it, don't let google outnumber you.

How to restore session when sessionstore.js/.bak is corrupted

Hello. Here we go again with the same (very) old and (very) annoying story. Windows 7 somehow decides to freeze, forcing me to force shut down. And guess what? That's right. My Firefox session is gone..

What's that? Try to search sessionstore.bak to see if it stored the previous session before it was gone? Ok that'll work. Except that sessionstore.bak even if it has the correct time and it's 2.30 MB it contains nothing more but many many empty spaces.

Tried restoring previous file version method, didn't work. (I probably had this function disabled). Tried Recuva program to restore deleted files, found the correct one (.js) only to be the same with the current (containing spaces). Found another almost 2 weeks old (.js), 3.02 MB, contains weird characters and a list of registry keys that are uncompleted(?). Tried copying the contents of that file to that site "herokuapp" ("When All Else Has Failed" - Why this should not), didn't work probably because there aren't any valid tab websites in there.

So here's a suggestion to Firefox developers and those who are involved with it: The .bak file was a good idea. It stores the previous session when something goes horribly wrong. But what if that file gets corrupted or accidentally replaced? You should add an alternative backup method. Another file that will store the session ONCE at the beginning of EACH new day, even if Firefox had not been shut down. Also add a friendly option to access this file through Firefox from its menu. That will save a lot of headaches, a lot of time and more. I am sure this wouldn't be hard for you. And please do not rely on third-party add-ons for this, it should be an official working function. TABS = FIREFOX, keep the tradition, keep it good.

So, is there really another way of accessing my lost tabs (or websites) without these files? I mean except from going through hell (History), which is considered my only option right now, and I don't even remember most of my tabs. What's even worse I don't keep the pages loaded to save memory avoiding Firefox crashes, Flash plugin crashes and extremely painful slow downs, when I don't quit Firefox for a few days. Unless I am missing something here.

Please help and thanks.

I recently downloaded PowerISO and it changed my search engine to Bing. It did not install any program or plugin that I can plainly see. When I go to control panel and "Uninstall or change programs" I don't see a Bing, nor do I see a plug-in or extension on Firefox. I was able to change my homepage back to Google, but now Firefox always searches through Bing whenever I open a new tab.

So, my main tab works fine, but all my tabs automatically search through Bing. How do I fix this?

-As a developer i always found the right click options on firefox very useful. However the last few versions of firefox have had these options disabled or defunct, not working or worst still not working at all. i am referring to Copy, copy & paste for simple texts, and opening the page's source file. etc. Also there are now so many options that to get to the basic most popular options like above is time consuming. Please think of the most popular usages only. Right mouse click options is not about putting every option there. It is a short cut for the most popular options.

I was deleting three links when the whole thing just went blank. I desperately need to retrieve this history as I need it for work.

I was wondering what to do and if restoring my system to a previous version will affect my firefox history? Please help!

I work online transcribing medical reports. Some of the time I have to run a quick search for information. Firefox has stopped blocking video popups. I read the articles about this, but I am losing valuable work time by stopping to write about it and don't have all day. WHY isn't there still an option to stop these? I'm going back to IE because this is frustrating and a ridiculous waste of time.
