I have trouble viewing videos on my default browser, latest Firefox v 27. I think I am not alone in this.

I do have the latest versions of Flash Player, Real Player, and Javascript is enabled (not java)

I first found it in videos from my favourite cats site (cheezeburger..) but I have just found it happens with videos from Serif Community Plus. Videos accessed via FP work, even when referred to YouTube (Clicked)

Videos direct from YouTube work, but not videos from YouTube accessed via cheezburger links.

These faults happen only in Firefox 27, and videos play OK in Maxthon 3, (Chrome and Opera - last time I checked.) I know you recommend against this but can you tell exactly how to reload the previous version of Firefox, V26 - I had no trouble with that.

I have tried running FF27 in safe mode, no effect. I do not want to lose the various add ins I use, so I do not want to reset to factory settings.

my theme is only showing behind the toolbar (tabs, search bars,etc.) when i go to the "Mozilla Firefox start page", my theme is still only in the toolbar, and the rest of the page is white. My theme is also only showing such small pieces of the theme chosen that most of the time you cant even tell that it is a fox in the corner. Is there a way for me to make my theme appear across the full screen?

I'm using Firefox 27 on Windows 7 and--all of a sudden, it seems--JavaScript has totally stopped working for websites on localhost. I've tried disabling my add-ons, restarting Firefox, clearing my cache, testing with the simplest script (basically just an alert() prompt that works fine in other browsers) but nothing. I load the page and nothing happens. Firebug (when I have it enabled) doesn't even detect any scripts in my localhost pages! The same pages work fine if they're hosted somewhere else, though. Help?

This is extremely frustrating and has been happening for months now. Sometimes the sites load, but then stop working after a few minutes, and then it's nearly impossible to get them to load again. It just hangs at "connecting" for ever until it either times out or just goes to a blank tab. Other sites work, but anything Google related such as search, gmail, finance, etc or Facebook simply don't work.

It appears that this is a common problem recurring every 6 months or so according to this board. I've tried clearing cookies/cash and then even reset Firefox and it still happens. Any suggestions to fix this problem?

Thank you very much!

Most of the time, when I hit a link, it opens but tabs with ads or pages that I didn't ask for are opening also and they come up on top. I have to dump them to get to the link I originally hit. How can I stop this from happening? It's so irritating and they take a while to come up before I can close them. Note: I use Firefox for Mac OS

Firefox opens up an explorer window when I download a file

Recently, Firefox started opening up an Explorer window every time I download a file. It's Better Explorer, actually, since I use that to replace the Microsoft version. The folder that opens is the target destination. So it creates multiple tabs, but I expect that it would just open up multiple instances of Windows Explorer if that's what I used.

So if I download a dozen images, I get a dozen tabs opened. This doesn't happen with IE or Chrome. I do have multiple extensions installed, but I've gone through the options in Firefox and any relating to downloads and none of them seem to have anything that might cause this. I did check the Applications tab under the Firefox Options, since that seemed like a probable cause. But I don't see anything. And I don't recall changing anything recently, in any case. I can't see anything in Better Explorer that would cause this behavior. Which is borne out by this not occurring in other browsers. And I haven't changed anything it, either.

I tried downloading something with NetVideoHunter and I get the same behavior. But it doesn't happen with DownloadThemAll!

I've tried researching it on-line, but the queries I use are apparently too similar to the ones for other issues, because nothing that comes up is even close to my problem.

As this is getting very annoying, any help would be greatly appreciated. Firefox remains my favorite desktop browser and I'm not prepared to give it up over this. But I'd hate to have to reinstall it, since I have it configure just the way I want it. And I'm not even sure that would fix the issue.

Thanks

http://www.southernpersuasion.com I have maintained this site for years. Recently, rather than post pictures on a photo storage provider and post them to facebook, I have posted them to facebook and then linked to them from this site (select the Pictures link). When I click on a link, I get a blank page in the frame. When I right click on the link and select Open New Tab, or Open New Window it comes up. I don't think I've messed up the html... in fact, I think I just changed the links from previous entries that were actually linked to PhotoBucket or the like. What is wrong, and how can I fix it? Thanx.

After I had some problems with it (+ security issue) I decided to delete all passwords from my firefox. When I had done this most of the annoying auto-fill-in stuff was solved, however at one website (which I visit quite regularly) it seems to keep filling in one particular username and a password wherever there's a field for either one. Even if it's just a normal field with a title it'll fill in that username.

How can I get rid of this?

I downloaded the current version of Firefox on my desktop computer yesterday (I am currently using my laptop since the desktop is in chaos) and (1) it won't let me change the home page to one I need; (2) it stays on a Yahoo search engine page, which we don't use; and (3) when we try visiting other websites, including Mozilla Firefox, we get a link page that says the site is not trustworthy and won't get the certificates

I am not a techie, but a simple home user and would appreciate directions on resolving these problems.

Thank you, Cyndy Welsh

In spite of the fact that I selected to prevent pop-ups, they keep popping up at fast speed, mostly of a nature I am not interested to be bothered with.
