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?

I tried to delete Hotspot shield using the control panel function. Now it keeps showing up when ever I am using Firefox. I tried deleting the tool bar for it. 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?

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I check my plug-ins in Firefox Microsoft DRM and Windows Media Player Plug-in Dynamic Link Library both show as outdated (9.0.0.3250), however, when I click on 'update' Windows Media Player 11 shows (which I already have) and a Windows Media Player ActiveX control for Firefox,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!

starting a couple of weeks ago, I started having a problem with firefox 13 and upgraded to 14.01 and still have the problem. Windows IE, and google chrome work fine. Prior to a couple of weeks ago, when i went to www.dpreview.com and moused over one of the items at the top of the page , ie: software, galleries, forums etc, a drop down list would appear and i could select of of the items, when I went to a forum and a thread had a link to a picture, the picture would appear.

Now when i try this I have to click with the mouse to bring up the list under the header, and when selecting a forum when a link to a picture is included the picture does not appear.

I have removed/rebooted/reinstalled firefox many time all to the same avail., no help

Like i said Windows internet explorer and google chrome work just fine.


This my second request sending this to you.
