Problem with the Flashgot Media Icon

When I updated to Firefox 25.0.1 all my add-ons were gone so I downloaded some of them again. My problem is with Flashgot when I downloaded it I can add the Flashgot (thunderbolt) sign to the toolbar, but the Flashgot media icon (which looks like a cinema reel) is not visible.

So basically when I try to add add-ons I right click on the Firefox toolbar which gives me the option to "remove or add items" by dragging them. So I dragged Flashgot media (called FG Media) (which is not visible in the menu by the way) and predictably was not visible on the Firefox add-ons toolbar

Anyone know what's up?

Today Roboform 7.9.2.5 toolbar, the latest version, no longer loads in Firefox 25.0.1. It is listed in the Firefox addons and worked fine previously (i.e. yesterday), but for unknown reasons won't load today. I have closed and reopened both programs, but it continues to be unavailable. Roboform does load appropriately in my other browsers.

I have a recurring issue that's really annoying: my left/right arrow keys (including CTRL+arrow keys) occasionally and randomly fail to work when entering text in certain text boxes on certain websites. This never occurs in "simple" unformatted text boxes (Facebook, search boxes, this very box I'm typing in...), but unpredictably happens in more complex ones (WYSIWYG editors, new youtube comments...).

I have tried disabling all extensions and running Firefox in safe mode and this *seems* to have solved the problem, though I can't be sure and I can't isolate which extension it might be, since the issue happens at random: on the same website it will happen and then not happen.

I'm on Firefox 25.0, though I've had this issue for years with countless versions of Firefox.

The extensions I have installed and enabled:

Adblock plus Bamboo Feed Reader, Dimmer, Download Helper, Drag&Drop Zones, Flagfox, FlashVideo Downloader, Flashblock, Flashgot, Grab and Drag, MouseZoom, Status-4-Evar, Youtube High Definition

Thanks in advance for any help you may give me.

I use IE-Favorites not only for internet url shortcuts, but also as a normal folder (which it is actually). I work with Firefox on a Windows PC with plugin "PlainOldFavorites" for the bookmarks.

On my Mac , I would like the equivalent function (IE folder for bookmarks in Firefox) but the same plugin does not work on Mac. Which plugin would have that functionality ? To have access to the same folder (or a synchronized copy of Favorites) ?

Thank you

Since FF 24 and also in 25 & 26 it keeps loosing the customisation of controls after new start or updates.

I always do this: "Customize navigation buttons like back, home, bookmarks & reload" - http://mzl.la/LqHj2n.

When I updated from 23 to 24/25/26 or have a FF crash in any of these versions, the customisation is back to default. I hate to redo this every time!

Are there any white text on black background color schemes that are complete? My search bar background color is bright white. My Unsorted Bookmarks Library window background is glaring bright white, can't see a thing in it.

I researched the issue and figured out how to change the URL address bar text and background color, using userChrome, but haven't been able to find anything on changing the Unsorted Bookmarks Library window background color or the search bar background color.

I haven't searched for the search bar background color, yet. Hopefully that one is easier to find than the Unsorted Bookmarks Library window background color setting.

Bookmarks > Unsorted Bookmarks > Library > BOOM! BRIGHT WHITE BACKGROUND

Thanks.

The Firefox plugin checker is reporting "Update Now" for VLC media player Web Plugin 2.1.0. The 'update now' link invites me to download Plugin 2.1.2. but i already have 2.1.2 installed so the plugin checker is detecting the wrong version. I have had v2.1.2 installed since December 9th 2013 and run the plugin checker on a weekly basis so i'm not sure why it has suddenly decided that this is a vulnerable plugin.

I am running Firefox 26.0 on Windows XP

I have Firefox 26.0 installed (though this has happened in previous versions). I have been through all the previous questions about this problem, but none match what I'm seeing. It's happening to others accessing my web site. I have a sample web page that I have up that presents the problem at http://flory.net/gabl/docx.htm.

When I click on the link on the above page (an office 2007 word document .docx), I get a page of gibberish as though it downloads the file as a text document. I've been through all the steps I could find in support to fix this to no avail, including resetting all defaults, etc. .doc works great, but I cannot find anything in the Options/Applications that will allow me to modify/add info to handle neither .doc nor .docx.

When I click on a .pdf link, Firefox downloads the file to my desktop. This is fine.

Sometimes, however, I would prefer that Firefox simply open the .pdf document in a new window. I know it used to work this way, but it stopped some time ago. How can I control this behavior?

I looked in Preferences > Applications and selected on "pdf". Two entries showed up under "Content Type":

 "Preview.app Document (application/po..." 

and

 "Portable Document Format (PDF)".  

Both entries have the same "Action": "Use PDF Browser Plugin 2.4.4 (in Firefox)"

Oops. I just figured it out. The PDF entry (only) has an extra pulldown option under Action: "Preview in Firefox". I tried it and it works!

I guess the old PDF Browser Plugin 2.4.4 must've quit working some time ago.

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.

I have a PC (Windows 7) and I would like to back up my bookmarks, etc, as I'm switching to another PC, so I made sure I had the latest version of firefox and sync. I created a sync account and and got a message that the sync would begin momentarily but nothing has happened (this has been over 2 hours). I also tried the "sync now" option under tools. Is there a way to tell if it's even working since there is no status bar?

I've tried selecting all the items to be synced and disconnecting and reconnecting to firefox and still not working.

Thanks.
