I had already bought a registered version of IDM cc 7.3.49 before I upgraded my Firefox to 25.0.1. After the upgrade Firefox disabled IDM integration, and so I can not download flash videos or anything using IDM. I neither know if upgrading my IDM will solve the problem or not, nor I am not willing to pay for a new IDM upgrade. Please guide me if there is a way to solve the issue, or a way to restore my Firefox to its previous version or versions listed in my upgrade history.

Best Regards,

Alex

Last week, I downloaded Mumble, a voice chat program. I was playing World of Warcraft at the time, and needed to download Mumble on the fly, so I was insufficiently careful and downloaded an extension, Websteroids, at the same time. Websteroids highlights words in text documents which, when scrolled over, lead to advertisements. The claim of the Websteroids website is that it turns a webpage into a meteoroids game.

I have repeatedly disabled and removed it from my extensions list, uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, deleted files with the Websteroids name on it, uninstalled it and Mumble, and any other files/programs that I could find from that date.
I've run my antivirus program (AVG), spybot s&d, and lavasoft ad aware and followed the advice from their scans. Nevertheless, Websteriods keeps reinstalling itself without warning.
I have restarted Mozilla in safe mode and I've also deleted anything I could find from the publisher, Creative Island Media, LLC.
The next step that I can think of is a system restore. Before I do that, is there any other less drastic step that might work? 

Thank you

Perhaps this is two issues. Both pooped up with a recent update. I have no yahoo extensions nor add-ons installed.

a) I type a URL into the navigation bar (NOT the search box) and all these 'helpful' suggestions pop up. Make them stop.

Why do some YouTube videos stop playing after a short time?

Since sometime in October, 2013, I have noticed that more and more YouTube videos stop playing within a minute of starting. Most that stop do so in 15 or 16 seconds. The playing stops because the download stops. I watch this on a network activity monitor I always have running. Not all videos do this, but the problem is becoming more and more frequent. Some videos which played correctly for me in the recent past are now exhibiting this problem.

Other than installing the latest Firefox updates I have NOT changed the software on my machine. I run Linux by the way. I do not think this is a Linux problem because (1) it was all working before and (2) my son who runs both Mac OS X *and* Windows is also seeing the same problem. We both use Firefox as our browser on all our platforms.

I should also note that I am NOT seeing this problem with any of the other video websites I use, only when I go to YouTube. That leads me to believe that the problem is not in Firefox; if it were it should affect videos from all websites.

Additionally the problem occurs whether or not I log into YouTube.

I have not run Firefox in safe mode because all the extensions I use did not affect the download of Videos before, so I don't expect unchanged extensions to suddenly start causing problems.

So, anyone else see this problem? (There was another note which talked about the same problem but it was disabled.)

Also -- pardon my paranoia, but -- I need to ask: Since YouTube is owned by Google and Google has its own browser it wants you to use, Chrome, is it possible that Google is intentionally causing some YouTube videos to fail if it sees that they are being sent to Firefox?

(That is not so outlandish I think. Microsoft WAS at one point caught mangling web pages going to certain web browsers other than IE. And these days Google wants to dominate the Internet just as badly as Microsoft does, so why not pull dirty tricks too?)

If this keeps happening I am going to have to try Google's Chrome to see if it somehow manages to play YouTube videos correctly while Firefox does not. But I really do NOT want to install Chrome because I trust Google about as much as I trust Microsoft, which is to say Not At All.

Thanks in advance.

I am running OSX 10.9 Maverick on a Macbook Pro . I observe this problem in Firefox 25.1 The scroll bars in any application window all dissapear after about a second. If you resize the window or select an item with subdirectories in a list, the scroll bar in the pane you are in reappears, but it does not dwell long enough to allow you to move a cursor over it. (What is the point of making it dissapear anyway?) Two finger scrolling does not work for some reason, using a function and direction key or just a direction key works to scroll only in some websites but not all of them. This little bit of cleverness, if intentional is both un-needed and dysfunctional.

I have been having trouble watching YouTube videos in Firefox over the last few weeks. Basically, the video will start up and if i keep it in the small video player mode it works fine. But if I click full screen the video will stop for several seconds, then catch up and repeat this to the end of the video. However the sound always plays continually throughout the video, even while the picture is frozen. I do not have this issue in Internet Explorer or Google Chrome, and it is only happening on one of three computers that I use Firefox on. I have run full scans in Malwarebytes Anti Malware, Kaspersky Internet Security, and Windows Defender, so i am fairly certain that it is not malware or a virus that is causing the problem. I have also tried the following solutions to no avail: Reset Firefox, Run Firefox in safe mode with no addons, Reinstall Firefox (plus another clean reinstall), Reinstall Flash player

I just can't seem to figure out what is wrong, and Firefox is my favorite browser so any help would be much appreciated.
