I recently ran into this problem after cleaning up my Windows 7 notification icons, which, required the deletion of 2 Registry Keys: IconStreams and PastIconsStream. This did a great job of clearing out the old icons, however, I ended up with this side effect!

I found this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/943001, which, gave me several remedies, including: create a new Boolean preference name: 'browser.shell.shortcutFavicons and set the value to false. None of the remedies worked.

  1. My solution was a simple one, I backed up my Firefox Profile, uninstalled Firefox, then, reinstalled Firefox, transferred my original profile back back and the problem was solved!

To make the re-installation easier, it's a good idea to download a new copy of the Firefox Installer, that, way you don't start another browser and searching for it, you can just simply run the installer. Also, don't forget to make a copy of your current Firefox Profile.

I hope, that, this helps and I hope, that, I haven't put this in the wrong place!

There is an animated rectangle in my test html page. The rectangle disappears gradually as it gets about a quarter of the way down the screen. I don't have this problem running the same page in Chrome. The code is:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 <head>
  <meta charset="utf-8" />
  <title>SVG</title>
 </head>
 <body bgColor="red">

<script>

var SVG=function(h,w){
 var NS="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg";
 var svg=document.createElementNS(NS,"svg");
           
 //alert(h);
 //svg.width=w;
 //d7,=============================,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,svg.height=h;
 
 return svg;
}
var svg=SVG(1800,1800);
document.body.appendChild(svg); 
alert (svg.height);
var rect=function(h,w,fill){
 var NS="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg";
 var SVGObj= document.createElementNS(NS,"rect");
 SVGObj.width.baseVal.value=w;
 SVGObj.height.baseVal.value=h;
 SVGObj.setAttribute("height",h);
 SVGObj.style.fill=fill;
 return SVGObj;
}

var r= rect(100,200,"blue");
svg.appendChild(r);

r.x.baseVal.value=10;
r.y.baseVal.value=20;

var animate=function(obj){
 obj.x.baseVal.value+=1;
 obj.y.baseVal.value+=1;
}

setInterval("animate(r)",100);
 </script>
</body>
</html>

Thanks

Whenever I try to watch a YouTube video I get an error, saying the Adobe Flash Plugin has crashed. I've updated it and Firefox AND restarted my computer, which seems to be everything recommended in the help article for this issue. Is there anything else I can try?

I've already posted in another thread about this but a mod told me to open a new one so here goes. As I said in that thread absolutely nothing is working with regards to flash at the moment. A reset doesn't fix this problem. I can't disable hardware acceleration in flash because I can't even get the plugin to work in order to have that option display. I've checked if my addons had anything to do with it -- nope.

I'm using FF24 with Flash version 11.8.800.94. Flash works fine in both IE & in Chrome. Where I go from here I'm not sure...

EDIT: I was finally able to disable hardware acceleration in flash but it didn't help.

For time time, both Firefox and Thunderbird keep notifying me of patches. I try to install, and they fail and tell me to install the larger update. I say yes, and it too fails. They tell me to do it manually. I go to the website and it tells me I'm uptodate. This is more annoying that anything else, but seems like a small glitch that could be fixed easily. Could you help?

Thanks.
