I click on the rotating balls of download helper and it looks as though the download is taking only a couple seconds. Then, when I click on it to play it it doesn't work and says, The document “Barney_ I Hear Music Everywhere.mp4” could not be opened. The movie's file format isn't recognized. To see if additional software is available that will enable QuickTime Player to open the movie, click Tell Me More.

I have a 2011 Apple Macbook Pro 13".

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Luke Wilson

I have a new home computer using Windows 7 Professional that came with IE 9.0 which won't work on our Firepass for my job. I am testing Firefox 13.0.1. When I go to my company Firepass site it wants to download the F5 Host plugin. That plugin gets an error that it won't work with Firefox 13.0.1. Is there some place that I can get a different plug-in that will work? Is there something that I can change with Firefox? Can I get an earlier version that will work with F5?

Is there a key shortcut for spell check?

Hello, I have spell checking Disabled in Tools > Options > Advanced. I was recently typing a message in a bulletin board style forum, and suddenly saw the red wiggly line which typically indicates a misspelled word. The forum has no spell check feature. It lasted for 2 or 3 minutes, then stopped.

My current theory is that I accidentally enabled spell checking by inadvertently striking some particular key or keys. However, I can't find any info, which indicates that spell checking can be requested on a one-time basis, via key shortcut. While I think that would be a nice feature, it does not appear to currently exist.

So my questions: Is there such a feature? Does anyone have any idea if this sudden and unintentional spell check behavior might be traced to Firefox?

Thanks for your help :-)

Running Mac OS 10.6.8 Snow Leopard with Firefox 13.0. Was notified that I needed to install Adobe Flash/Shockwave to see video content.

Have loaded and updated to the newest version as of last week but Firefox has become buggy, freezing up but my pointer will still move. I continually get requests from Flashplayer to store data on my machine. Continually get error messages that I have to click DISMISS and the it works normally.

Just a regular PIA. I have uninstalled Flashplayer and the problems disappear but I cannot access a lot of content, especially videos.

IS there any alternative for Mac?


thanks,

Rob

have a corporate laptop that needs to use a corporate proxy when connected via VPN or physically to the corporate network. I use .pac format proxy in option of automatic proxy. When i connect to home network same proxy acts like no proxy, and in corporate lan it work as corporate proxy. But from home network when i connect corporate vpn then something go wrong. I can only access corporate links, not any exernal links like google. When i select RELOAD option in automatic proxy, then i am able to access internal as well as external links also. I assume when i connect to VPN, firefox do not reload proxy which he should be doing whenever netwok change take place, and that should be automatic. I have tried "reloadPAC" option with PrefBar tool, but again it's manual option. I want to automate it, like something done on OS level, which can trigger reload option whenever i connect VPN.

Any suggestion?????

Firefox keeps freezing and using 50% cpu and memory usage shoots up real fast and carries on going till it uses up all there is left. Most of the time it's when there's an auto update of anything addon, plugin or ff but not just neccessarily then! I find out it's happened when there's been an update after i restart and an extra webpage comes up with the particular addon/plugin/ff update. I have to restart most of time because nothing sorts it out. I'm using windows xp with the latest update of ff 13.0.1 it's not this version because it's been happening for a while. And it never started when i added a particular addon or plugin or when i added a new app to my pc either. Any idea as to what this may be or how i'd sort it out?

Cheers

Each time I try to download something, the download generally stops every few MB (random amount, sometimes 10MB, sometimes 100MB, etc). The problem happens no matter which website the download comes from.

The strange thing is that Firefox does not tell me the download has failed, or even that it has paused. It shows the same download rate as it left off when it was running, along with the estimated time of completion.

For example, if I try to download a 500MB file, the download would start just fine. I would get an estimated download rate of 1.8MB/s and an estimated time of a minute or two. When the download stops, it does not change at all. It still displays my download rate at 1.8MB/s along with an unchanging estimated time.

The download continues if I click the pause and resume button, but it eventually pauses again after it finishes downloading another few MB of data.
