I have my pop up blocker turned on, no websites are on my exception list and yet I still get pop up windows. I have STOPzilla and it has removed any spyware, adware, etc from my computer. I also have pop up blocker with that program as well. Yet I still receive pop ups. I need help in solving this issue.

I have noticed recently that Firefox is taking upwards of 20sec. to load pages and often cannot find the server(I have to reload the page). I did not realize how low it had gotten until I start using safari and it seemed so fast in comparison. Does anyone know what is going on? Also, I have read a DIY fix on another conversation which states to fix the problem "To disable OCSP go to about:config from firefox and change security.OCSP.enabled to be 0. " Is this the fix? and is it safe? Does mozilla field any of these questions or is it all user help?

Before I start Fire Fox I open the Task Manager to make sure no other copies of Fire Fox are running. When I click on the short cut there is a pause of about 1 second then this message appears. "The update could not be installed. Please make sure there are no other copies of Firefox running on your computer, and then restart Firefox to try again." I checked your FAQs where this problem showed up many times. I saw not solutions there. Where can I go to get an answer other than the usual remarks. Of course Fire Fox starts up immediately after the error message.

Hulu videos won't play. They put a different video player on and I've done all I can think of to be able to watch videos there.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled flash.. that didn't help.

I've posted there and no replies..

Could firefox be stopping it from working?

Hulu has always worked fine before.

Thanks.

I found out the other day that Firefox will no longer open pages that redirect to somewhere else. For example, I was trying to open phpMyAdmin through my hostgator account, and it just sort of "hung" there at the page where it said it was being redirected. I have since noticed it does it EVERY time a page needs to redirect to another page. If there is no link saying "click here if the page does not redirect" I just can't get it to work. I have had to resort to using IE for these sites!! I haven't a clue what's happened, as I haven't changed any settings at all.

I just got a new Macbook Pro and have noticed that I cannot access any sites that use java in Firefox.

I have verified that I do have the latest Java installed and it works fine in safari, and when I do a software update there is nothing to update.

I tried to go into the preferences to see if there is a checkbox to enable it, but there is nothing there, just for javascript - but I need Java.

How can I get firefox to recgonize that I have Java and work?

I do also have the java plugins installed and both are enabled.

Hi, since a couple of days ago, I am having trouble opening a select few webites and get the message that they have timed out. They are popular ones, ebay.ca, BBC, and chapters.ca. I also cannot view the itunes store in itunes, although I am still able to update podcasts. The only thing I did recently to the computer was uninstall norton, and install Microsoft security essentials. I have xp and firefox 3.6.3 I've searched for solutions and have cleared cache, cookies, updated java, ran norton removal tool, removed cookie file, tried no proxy, tried auto-detect proxy...and I am stumped. I don't know what else to try. Any ideas?
