Hi...I'm having a lot of issues recently with Google Music. (FF v. 11)

Initially the problems started last week. I suspect Google changed something in their codes as many of their programs (music, offers) suddenly stopped working. I discovered if I unblocked the tracker "Google Analytics" that I had blocked (through Ghostery extension), it started working again. All was well for a few days.

Now, suddenly....it is once again not working even though Analytics is unblocked. Now, one thing that did happen in the interim is that Microsoft released a slew of security updates which affected both my XP desktop and Vista laptop, both of which run FF 11.

Whatever went wrong, though, it only affects FIREFOX. Internet Explorer plays it just fine. Music works no problem. Offers works no problem.

So the question is ....what else going on here?

Dear Everyone:

I use Firefox (V11.0) on a Mac OS X (V10.6.8). I have a persistent problem with Youtube. When I view a video, I may get the message: "An error occurred. Please try again later".

The frequency of this problem varies from day to day. Sometimes, it happens to almost every video, and sometimes, it rarely happens; sometimes, "reloading" it once or twice, the video begins to play, and sometimes, it never plays no matter how many times I reload it.

I also have Safari (V5.1.4) on my machine, and it does not have the above problem.

Could you let me know how to resolve the problem with Firefox?

Thank you! qquito

Insanely high memory and I/O usage after upgrading from 11 to 12

I just installed Firefox 12 and memory usage on 40 open tabs spiked from a maximum of 900 MB-1 GB to 2.5 GB. Memory usage for firefox.exe would start at 4-500 MB, steadily increase to 2.5 GB in 10-20 min even if I did not touch the browser at all. Hard drive I/O went trough the roof as well. Laptop would become unresponsive and Firefox would eventually crash. Downloaded Firefox 11, installed it on top of Firefox 12 and everything is back to normal, memory usage is less than 900 MB with normal usage, it doesn't really grow past that. Guess will stick with 11 until they fix these issues in 12.

Script quits working - this is when multiple tabs are open and I go to close one. First, I have to click to close the tab multiple times before it closes, then a 'new tab' opens on it's own. The script error reads Script: chrome://browser/content/tabbrowser.xml:1644 I have to then close the window, reopen it, and then all previous tabs open, and yet another 'new tab' opens. None of my tabs are closing with one click, all need two or more before they close. I love Firefox and have used for years, this really must be fixed.

Problem: Java plugin works in IE 9 (32 bit), does not work in firefox. Does not show up in list of plugins when entering about:plugins in address bar. It was working until an automatic Java update. What I have tried: - Uninstalled all java programs in windows control panel and then installed java version 6 update 31 (32 bit). - have reinstalled firefox (twice now). - Selected Mozilla family in java browser options in windows control panel. still no java plugin shows up in firefox plugin manager. - Clicking on the "check to see if your plugins are up to date" link takes me to page that says java is missing and following "upgrade to latest version" link goes to a java update page, however the update fails to install (EULA page doesn't even load). - Downloaded offline install file (jre-6u31-windows-i586-s) and tried that, but still nothing. - Checked programs in windows control panel and only the current 32 bit version of java shows up there. No Mozilla based browser works (firefox, opera etc). Now what? I really kind of need this working but I don't know where to go from here? Thanks

In what seems like a relentless update/upgrade competition with the "other" browsers, Firefox 11 is NOW not playing nice with Shockwave Flash, or is it vice-versa. This didn't start happening until I "upgraded" to Firefox 11.0

YES, I've updated ALL the plugins (Who invented this plug-in hassle, anyway?), as is ABSOLUTELY required whenever Firefox goes through one of its myriad of updates/upgrades. I've uninstalled/reinstalled Flash, and my WinXP Pro is up-to-date. I haven't experienced this torrential headache with IE 8.0, OR before F-11.

Is there a Firefox 11.0.0.1.2.3.4 patch in-the-works, or do I have to consider one of the "others"? HELP ME!

Since updating to Adobe Reader 10.1.3, I noticed Firefox 11 does not display PDF files. It just shows a blank screen.

The only workaround I found is disabling the Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in (ver. 10.1.3) the update installs. Firefox will prompt which application to use.Choosing Preview allows the PDFs to display correctly.

Neither Chrome or Safari exhibit this behavior, nor does Firefox 11 (Windows) with the update installed.

Has anyone else experienced this?

My arrow keys suddenly stopped working. I'm using Firefox 11 and haven't updated recently. They were working fine yesterday.


They also work fine when using any other program. Internet Explorer, texteditors. No problems.

Might be related might not, but the ENTER key skips two rows instead of the usual one as well.

After firefox 11.0 or Nightly (most recent version) returns search results and I click on a link, I am often redirected to a site called happili.com

I ran malwarebytes which is the one I use along with AVG Professional and problem still happened.

When I contacted malwarebytes support this is what they said:

"Fully uninstall Firefox and all user profiles, this has been found to be an add on in Firefox profiles."

So is this a Firefox problem and does this mean we should not use Firefox?

I've upgraded to FF4 12 Beta and there seems to be no way to save a session or tabs from previous session. I have changed or confirmed all the correct settings set to true in about:config for warnOnQuit, warnOnClose, etc, as well as edit>preferences to warn when closing multiple tabs. Still FF opens to a blank page though I set it to default and no tabs are saved. 11 Beta works fine. any ideas?

Windows users keep getting prompted about java version being insecure and are advised to disable the plugin. They then complain that java based websites no longer work. Can I disable / prevent this warning feature. And can I re-enable java plugin via command line or script? I need to do this on a large scale and various versions of firefox. Right now I will need to abandon firefox if I cannot easily resolve this. Yes I realize updating to latest version of java is a solution... but this will take too much time now and how long before another security fix for java and then I will have to update yet again.

how to uninstall a Yahoo-affiliated "Search Here" functionality from Firefox

I picked up a Yahoo Search functionality inside Firefox but there was no Yahoo toolbar. I ran Revo Uninstaller and there was no listing for Yahoo. I ran Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel but there was no listing for Yahoo. However, in my Programs File under My Computer there is a folder titled Yahoo.

Whenever I opened Firefox I would get a Yahoo Search page instead of Google. I did a bunch of searches for solutions and found that I needed to delete all of the search listings in the drop down list from clicking the gray arrow in the search box.

They were all in there – Google, Yahoo, Bing, Twitter, and an odd entry called “Search Here” I deleted everything except Google. Then I went to about:config and reset the Keyword URL to the Google entry it was supposed to be.

I thought everything was fine but all of this left me with some strange Search Here window next to the Firefox Tabs and the same Search Here entry in the drop down list previously changed.

If I perform a search from the search window next to the open tabs I get a Yahoo Search result:

If I perform a search from Google I get a Google result as I should.

Interestingly, the Search Here listing appears again automatically in the listing of search engines.

I have Firefox 11.0. With the latest PEAR, Firebug shows me that the proper response is coming back from an AJAX call. The target is .

It is supposed to put the response in via innerHTML. It doesn't. Now IE8 works fine in this case.

The PEAR modules have in them the check for 'Gecko' to cover the bug found in earlier versions of FF.

Your browser is blocking Flash. You must have Flash 9.0 or higher installed and unblocked to run an openmail application. You can download and install the latest Flash Player

Doesn't appear to be a newer version of Flash available, so I'm not sure what I need to do to get rid of the pop-up.

Hello, my awesome bar still show old bookmarks with a yellow star and tags. I did everything that was suggested in several help pages, included clearing all history, cookies, cache, and also deleting the results listed in the awesome bar. They still show up, even if they do not exist anymore in my bookmarks library (at least a search for them has yielded no results). Is there a way to remove those false and unwanted no-longer existing bookmarks?

I disabled GPU acceleration from settings menu but it is not effective. I did it from "about:config" menu "gfx.direct2d.disabled -true" but also not working. I did disable for all extension to check them but still have problem.

The problem is firefox using my GPU on maximum clocks even for a simple page scrolling. It causes GPU clocks go up and down continuously, and VGA cooler also speeds up and goes down which creates cooler noise fluctuation. It is really irritating.

Only thing I can do is to run firefox in windows xp compatibility mode. But this is just an interim solution.

Now I updated version 11 and this still not fixed. I wrote about this problem a few times but still nothing.

That is it basically.

clearing old progs, including nightly which i tried briefly for interest.

let it remove bookmarks ( presuming quite reasonably that it only would remove its own files not another programs ) now lost all firefox setting, addons, everything. like a bare bones firefox window now.

Attempted to find answers in forums/you Q & A but no resolution.

Has it hidden a backup somewhere, can i undelete somehow ??

I also now find my recycle bin corrupted.

using zone alarm, paid for antivirus, windows firewall.

I just get this same page, listing the system requirements, all of which I meet. I have Windows XP 64 service pack 2, and use Firefox 11. I tried to check my plug-ins, and tried to update Silverlight, but again got a message that I didn't meet system requirements. Very frustrating!! This is the message I constantly get: Instant Watching System Compatibility Complete System Requirements

To watch instantly, youll need a computer that meets the following minimum requirements:
