I was trying to view a video using Firefox, but the window where the video should play never loaded. It just remained a black image. So I tried the same page using Chrome, just to make sure the site was good, and the video did play using the Chrome browser.

The site I was trying to view in Forefox, but would not play the video, was:

http://www.thedailyshow.com/full-episodes/wed-january-15-2014-robert-gates

I do have flash player 11.9.900.700 plugin (add-o)n installed and activated.

I don't know what else to try to verify, or even if that video is a flash video.

Firefox says click here to update Shockwave, but that says Shockwave is disabled so you can't click that link. Please provide fix.

On the Add-ons Manager page/Plugins entry for Shockwave Flash appears the line "Shockwave Flash is known to be vulnerable and should be updated." This is followed by a link reading "Update Now". When I click this link, Firefox thinks for a while and then brings up a page that says (it's quite long, so this is a summary) Shockwave Flash versions have been disabled, so this page appears when you click on any of its links.

Since "Update Now" doesn't work, please send me an executable file that will fix this. Firefox says it is version 30.0.

Every time I open firefox, a "plugin check" website opens up. I thought that once I installed and updated all the pertinent updates for the plugins, the website would disappear when I re-opened firefox. However, the page wont' seem to disappear. I've done everything I could think of to get rid of this page. After updating all the plugins I restarted my pc, checked to make sure that my home page has not been changed the firefox plugin change, disabled all my plugins and even tried blocking the website via HOSTS.

(I am on firefox 3.6.17. I cannot update to 4.0 because some of the websites I use cannot support 4.0).

Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Before the update, I was able to use Stylish to get this functionality. However, something is broken with how -moz-box-ordinal-group functions. The only valid entries are 0 (places it above the Menu Bar) or !0 (places it at the very bottom).

Neither of those two places are what I desire. Here is what I'm aiming for, from top to bottom:

Menu Bar
Bookmarks Toolbar
Tabs
Address Bar

See this Stylish for a picture of what I used to have:
http://userstyles.org/styles/46274/firefox-4-bookmarks-toolbar-above-tabs-enhanced

So, my question here is, how can I restore this functionality? Having bookmarks below the address bar does not follow logic, in my mind. And this "now things are easy to customize how you want it!" thing that Australis is supposed to allow... doesn't let me customize it how I want it.

Any help would be appreciated, be it a config setting, a plugin, or some CSS I can plug into Stylish.

Now a days often Adobe flash crush. I followed the solution exactly as described on your web and downgraded the flash version. After that windows program compatibility assistant started appearing with warning that Yahoo messenger need flash.ocx which is not supported by Windows vista. By following suggested solution by windows I re-installed Macromedia flash but the problem remain same. However, the Adobe flash player crush problem remain there but rarely.

I had been using Yahoo messenger and it was first time I saw such message though I just did changes in Adobe flash by following exact procedure described on Firefox website from uninstall to downgrade flash version.

Conclusion: After downgrading Adobe flash player the crush problem reduced to very minimum. The Windows compatibility assistant kept appearing therefore, once again I updated the flash player to the latest version and re-installed Yahoo messenger. Now only face Adobe flash player crushing problem.

Please share your thoughts or any advice will be appreciated.

I do all that I'm supposed to do, selecting save, then run, etc. I receive no error messages. Then when the download process is nearly finished, I receive a message about whether I'm authorised to install this or not, and I select the administrator icon, since I am the sole owner of this PC. I read about this in another forum about problems downloading/installing Firefox, and from what I understand, that is what I'm supposed to select.

After making that selection, that bit of information soon disappears, however no more boxes with things to tick appear after that. The whole process then seems to cease for some strange reason.

I was on Google Chrome until yesterday, and switched back to Firefox - I've moved back and forth for long periods at a time, due to various reasons, but this is ridiculous! Please help me.

I have read and tried all of the suggestions I could find in help to get rid of the automatic Yahoo default search engine. I even went into about:config and deleted whatever I could find that had the word Yahoo in it without any success. What can I do to kill this search engine in Firefox? To me this was a frustrating search engine that was not very good in the first place before the changes in their company in my opinion.

I would appreciate any help at this point.

I was previously having problems with Firefox 13 (forget which version specifically) after it updated with using Flash as many others were. I was excited to see that a v. 14 is now out and updated hoping it would solve my issues, but I am still having trouble. I feel confident it is an issue with Flash; I have gone through and individually disabled and re-enabled add-ons, and can use Firefox fine when Flash is disabled, and everyone goes down hill once re-enabled.

In general, my issues are that Gmail, Facebook, and many other websites won't load when Flash is enabled. They will start to open, get stuck, and the Firefox completely freezes. Turning off the add-on fixes all of this, and turning it back on brings it back.

I have Windows Vista as my O/S.

Any suggestions for further troubleshooting? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both Firefox and Flash.
