I just bought a new computer that came with Windoze 8. I hate it. Firefox works occasionally.

It is pinned to the taskbar, but I cannot get it to start. I click on it and nothing happens.

When I go to Start and click on Firefox, it does not staty. IE and other programs start, but not Firefox. Is Microsoft blocking it? I am trying to run a business and I have to use Firefox on a Windows machine. Any suggestions?

But, it keeps coming back. it will show up on different accounts when I change pages. Like when I log onto the Telus account to pay bill. So how do I get this removed from my computer completely?

I have a new machine with a new install of Ubuntu 12.04. In Firefox the menu bar is missing. I have the black border with 3 buttons in the left and the current page title. I also have a tabs bar and toolbars. I've looked in the forum/help and tried the suggestions there, here's what happened:

If I right-click the tab bar, the only toolbars shown in the drop-down menu are Navigation, Bookmarks and Add-ons, so I can't show the menu bar that way.

I don't have a Firefox button.

I've tried creating a new toolbar and moving all buttons except the address field and google search across in case it was a lack of space on the toolbar but that didn't help.

I can't reset the profile as I don't have a help menu.

I've re-installed Firefox and there was no change.

Does anyone have other suggestions please?

Adobe Flash Player for Firefox Will Not Install At All

07-30-12, I have been trying for 2 days to install Flashplayer 11.3 for FF but it simply fails. No error messages, no "close the following apps that are using Flash in order to install", no crash report, no confirmation of installation, simply nothing. I can download the installer from the Adobe website, but when I Run it, it simply makes the monitor blink, then removes the executable that I just downloaded. I have run the Uninstaller each time it fails and it acts like it has uninstalled something, but, it acts that way when I run it again right after running it--what is it uninstalling IF it HAS "successfully uninstalled" Flash?

Win 7 Starter netbook was running the previous Flash plugins fine until I had to uninstall it (via Control Panel/Programs--something happened I can't remember right now; it was not an ActiveX version either).

It broke my HP Solutions Center software (which reallllllly sux) right in the middle of printing an RMA. Of course. So since HP requires the IE version of Flash even though I never ever use IE, I was forced to use IE to download the ActiveX version of Flash 11.3. That worked and at least HP is now working again. But oh come ON.

I cannot get the Firefox version to install. Period. No way to watch videos until Firefox and/or Adobe fixes this. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I am running XP SP3 and have Windows Media Player 11 installed....when I check my plug-ins in Firefox Microsoft DRM and Windows Media Player Plug-in Dynamic Link Library both show as outdated (9.0.0.3250), however, when I click on 'update' Windows Media Player 11 shows (which I already have) and a Windows Media Player ActiveX control for Firefox, which is not listed as suitable for XP SP3 (only SP2)?

Please advise me. Thank you.

Any way to recover my entire Firefox history (dating back several months)?

Hi,

I'm running Firefox 14.0.1 on a 3-year-old Macbook with Snow Leopard.

I recently noticed that Firefox doesn't keep my Internet history forever (which I'd set it to do), but instead deletes my history when it's a few months old. It's August 12th and I just now saw that my history dates back only to May. So anything from April and earlier is gone--unless I bookmarked it, which I don't always do. The fact that they're gone forever is killing me.

Is there any way I can recover my deleted history dating back months, or even years? I'd even be willing to pay for software that would do this.

Many thanks for any help!
