I installed the jdk 1.6u7, and then I open firefox, I see there is a java console 6.0.07 in extension, but in plugins, there is no java. and I can't open java website, it shows I don't install java in my machine, but actually, I have installed jdk 1.6u7. I think only if the java exists in plugins, the website can get the jvm and run.

it seems it is ok if I install a jdk which will create a plugin in plugins, and the extension can't be used.

Hi Firefox team. I do not have question, but have some comment. I expect when you uninstall FF it should keep the content of "Downloads" which may have some valuable stuff, which has nothing to do with FF itself. But I would expect the crap "extensions" like "PriceGong" should be deleted!

And I would put clear comments in help how to remove that carp, which usually forcefully installed.

Thanks Best regards Mike

After both firefox and flash upgraded to the newest versions i've found i have no video for certain flash sites. Youtube works fine but sites like metacafe.com don't.

I've tried rolling back to firefox 13.0.0. I've aso tried rolling flash back to 11.2 and 10.3 to no avail. I have also tried disabling protected mode for flash, still no video. I have done a complete reinstall of both firefox (including deleting my profile data) and flash, but it still won't work.

The only time i get video is when i restart firefox in safe mode. However when i restart in normal mode with all addons disabled i get no video. I don't have realplayer installed either.

Anyone got any ideas as to what I could try that i haven't already?

In Yahoo Mail Classic about every 1-2 actions, reply, send or open in a new tab, I am required to re-enter my password. When I re-enter my password, if I am sending or forwarding, I lose what I have entered and get a blank new email. This only happens in FireFox. When using Explorer I have no re-enter password requests. I don't have any passwords saved in anything. I use clear history and cookies when closed. I am using 13.0.1.

Since I upgraded to Firefox 13 for mac, Firefox asks my permission to access confidential information in my keychain. It does it everytime I start firefox even though I click "Always Allow" each time. This did not happen with the older version. By the way, the exact message reads, "Firefox wants to use your confidential information stored in “lpsafari” in your keychain. Do you want to allow access to this item?" Is there some way to get Firefox to stop asking?
