Java will not work on the computer all of a sudden. Now when I go to open a Pogo game room up i get a Mozilla red lego piece in the corner saying "Some plug ins have been De-activated for your safety, in the box will be "Java (TM) platform SE 6 U". I have removed Java7 and reloaded it, after that not working found Java6 and loaded and reloaded it and it is not working.

Now after 3 minutes of the room not loading Pogo will give me the error message of


Java Not Found or Not Working

Explanation: This error means Java (one of the technologies built into most browsers) is not working correctly on your browser.

You must have Java installed on your computer in order to run Pogo games, and it must be functioning properly. Either you don't have Java installed yet, or the Web browser you're currently using doesn't support Java or you have Java (or Javascript) disabled in your browser.

How to Fix the Problem: Java is a free download that is required to play Pogo games. Not all computers come with Java pre-installed.

If you haven't played Pogo games before and are getting this error, you probably just need to install Java on your computer. For instructions on installing Java for your operating system and browser click here.

If you believe Java might be installed but disabled for your browser, please be sure to enable the plugin for your browser. If you need help, click here.

If you already have Java installed and it is not disabled, your Java may be out-of-date or no longer working. In that case, your Java might need to be upgraded or reinstalled. If you need help, click here.

I have done the click here in last sentence and all it wants me to do is download Java7 which was the first reason it was not working.

Hopefully I have explained this well enough, from Mozilla this is what I get BUT if I go to Internet Explorer (which I HATE) the Java6 and Java7 work perfectly fine. So apparently the Java is downloaded correctly I just can not get it to play nicely with Mozilla and that is my main goal.

EA games help page has gone through it all with me and have proven over and over (after 1 hour sessions, 45 waits for them) Java is working on my computer perfectly with IE just not on Firefox and with the rural situation I have become dependent on Mozilla because of the no fiber optics here it has been my best and only source of successfully using the internet here in the far out part of the country.

My FF was just auto updated to 18.0.1 today and now when I close FF it does not save my tabs. I have always had "When FF starts" set to "Show my windows and tabs from last time".

I saw an earlier 14.0.1 problem that said delete sessionstore.js files but when my FF is closed there is no sessionstore file in my FF Profile folder. Is that the problem? What needs fixing so I have a sessionstore file across sessions?

Thanks.

I am hooked on personas however the address bar and search bar are glaringly white instead of transparent like the rest of the upper page. This totally destroys the continuity of the photo. I would like to make those bars, as well as everything above the reading pane transparent like the upper tool bar so that the only thing that shows is the icons and text. I have tried dozens of search terms, none address this issue. Firefox 18.01. Can anyone help resolve this? Screen shot available.

Thanks

Firefox copy feature always adds extra space before or after when double clicking to select text

I have only just started using Firefox but I've noticed a strange "feature" (I'm not sure if it's a feature or a bug, thus the quotes). I'm used to Opera and IE where by when I double click some text the text will be automatically selected. Firefox does something like this but for some reason I don't yet understand it adds an extra space at the beginning or end of the selection. This is a problem for someone like me who for work does a lot of copy and paste. I use web software that is intolerant of extra spaces and this feature/bug is going to end up causing some major issues. Is there a way to alter this behavior so that it behaves more like all my other computer programs? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Ever since I updated firefox 2 days ago it has a problem restarting. When I close the firefox window it closes like it normally does but whenever I try to restart firefox it shows the notification that firefox is still running and I first need to shutdown the previous process before I can start a new one. At last after I manually shutdown the firefox process it will restart again.

I had this problem for awhile. I tried EVERYTHING. I reset the link in About:config, deleted the XML file....and every time I fix it bam yahoo squirms it's way back. Nothing seems to be a permanent fix...the only other thing I haven't tried is to take down Yahoo! itself and destroy everything to do with it. I'm hoping Personas has nothing to do with it... That's the only add-on I have. I think. Anyone else have any advice? Or a plan on how to destroy Yahoo? -___-;;

I land in Facebook when I try to go to Google. How do I stop this?

Some time, not most of the time, my Firefox version 18.0.1 takes me to Facebook when I try to go to Google, or try to refresh when I'm already on a Google page. When this happens, it doesn't matter if I type Google in the URL address, Google Google and click on the link, or use a bookmark. Something is telling Firefox to take me to Facebook, and I can't figure out what it is. Usually the problem goes away with the passage of time, as little as half an hour sometimes. And I can also rectify it by restarting Firefox or my Windows PC.

Anyone have this same problem? Anyone have any idea how to keep this from happening?

Within the last few days I noticed that my default search engine, both on the Firefox homepage and on the search bar, had been changed to Yahoo. I changed both back only to find that the settings reset themselves whenever the browser is closed.

Since then I've browsed scores of help threads on this and other forums looking for a solution. Nothing works. I've checked for yahoo software and AVG, I've booted in safe mode, I've disabled suspect plugins and add-ons, I've deleted the unwanted search options in the browser and on the hard drive. No dice.

I want to know how to change my default search engine back to google.

Is there a way to either completely disable this check, or allow a global pass for all websites?

I am aware that I can add individual websites by clicking the icon in the location bar and telling it to always load plugins to that particular site, however for the particular project I am configuring firefox for this is unfortunately not an option - if I can't turn this off I will need to look into other browser options which would be an incredible pain as right now the setup is perfected minus this one point.

I have had a look in the about:permissions page and the only option there for Plugins is 'Allow' or 'Always ask'. I have this set to allow but clearly that the above warning is not influenced by this.

I use FF as my default browser. A few shortcuts work better in IE so I select the option to "Open in Internet Explorer" and this works fine. Now I would like to undo one of these shortcuts and have it open in FF per the original. I tried to delete the shortcut but any new FF shortcut to that website automatically opens in IE.

How do I cancel that original transfer to IE so it will again open in FF?
