Hi,

When I print eBay labels through Firefox, a .dll file is downloaded. This used to open automatically in Adobe Reader, but now it opens as a text document in TextEdit, so I have to manually open Adobe Reader, change options to show "all files", and then locate the .dll file and open it.

When I try to change the default application in Firefox preferences, I can't find anything with the content type "dll".

Is there a way to have Firefox automatically open .dll files with Adobe Reader?

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

Win Xp Sp3 Firefox 32.0.3

I can't get my mp3's on Box.net to play. This link opens up a player but when I push the "Play" button, nothing happens.

https://app.box.com/s/s2yq8eokzcrihprv63yl

In the Web Developer console, I see a message saying that the file can not be decoded.

f_21818880347 Media resource https://app.box.com/preview/f_21818880347.mp3 could not be decoded.

This problem is new. Firefox always worked before. I'm just not sure how long I've had the problem without knowing about it.

There aren't really any more details to add. I have checked everything I can think of in the Library folder and thrown out anything I thought might affect it. Firefox is not set as my default browser.

I have read many threads of people having this problem both here and on the Apple Support site. Most seem to be solved by unchecking "Open at Login" in the Dock icon or removing Firefox from the Startup Items in the System Preferences. Neither applies here. HELP!!! I like Firefox and use it from time to time but it seems the only way to stop this behavior is to remove it from my computer, which I will do if a solution can't be found.

Thanks for your efforts.

Firefox is set to open to my home page (Mozilla Firefox Start Page) which shows the search page with the Bing search engine set. However, every time it opens TWO PAGES...the home page and with a blank "NEW TAB" page on top that offers to assist me with a pop-up message that says "Click on the + button and add your favorite sites". This is also happening EVERY time that a new window is supposed to open...my new information is displayed on the first tab, but the second tab (as stated above) opens on top. I have verified that there is no extra information set in the properties link.. it shows "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe". I have also verified that no other toolbars are installed or opening. I have verified that the "Tools/Options/General Tab is set to "Show My Home Page" and that the Home Page is set to "Mozilla Firefox Start Page". This is a brand newly built machine with Win 7 Home Premium Serv Pack 1, 64 bit operating system installed. Please help me shut off the blank page...all I want to see when I click on Firefox or open a second window is the main start page with my search engine option. Thank you.

This all started 5 hours ago, when I tried to download a .doc file from my school website but Microsoft Word opened it with "file conversion" options and the preview is filled with unreadable codes. I was using Nightly 64-bit on a newly installed Windows 8.1 64 bit system (about a week ago after I upgrade my ssd).

1. I tried open other .exl file from the same website, but Microsoft Excel could not open it at all saying the file is corrupted. I used IE 11 to download the same files and it worked perfectly. Problem with Nightly it looked like.

2. I reset Nightly then tried to download the same file again, not working. Tried safemode disable all addons and try to download the .doc file. It surprisly worked!. So it seems like an addon problem. Then I disabled all addons manually restarted again but tested not working. I was really frustrated at this point so I believe my Nightly was hacked by malware or some hidden plugins.

3. Uninstalled Nightly then I cleaned all files left with Ccleaner. I checked full scan with Windows security essential; downloaded malware cleaner "Malwarebytes". Yes a few malware like files were detected and cleaned up.

4. Downloaded waterfox 64-bit but now more problems appeared. It still cannot download the .doc or exl file now. The right click menu is not showing up at any webpage, image or highlighted texts. Ctrl+click link to open link in new tab is not working, just nothing happens. I try to reset or safemode restart, Nope! the help menu is gone, perfectly clear!

In brief, I would not like to reinstall my OS for this issue. I wish I could find some software remover that detects firefox virus pluggins. I don't want to try the 32-bit version of firefox for this issue.

Thank you.

The address wasn't understood

Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (rtsp) isn't associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

   You might need to install other software to open this address.

I am not a techy so please make it simple.

Thanks

Hi, in the past week, we've seen a number of weird things going on. 1. is the question above about our drafts folder suddenly being full of parts of emails that were already sent. We're afraid to delete the contents of that folder because the "sent" emails they refer to, are gone. 2. There is a half second delay when we type. Kind of like when you watch a movie and the sound doesn't sync. When I type, I type a letter but what appears is a letter behind what I'm actually seeing. Same is true when I backspace. It's driving me nuts.  :) 3. We are getting a couple of emails a day later than when they were actually sent. We received one today that was dated 1969.

I tried shutting down and restarting but it did nothing. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you!

After I upgraded to the latest version of the Firefox the print on most sites I visit became virtually unreadable because the text is so faint. In same cases I have to block the text to be able to read it. It became impossible to use the "Reply" or Compose" in gmail (online) because the default type-size is so small and faint (grey? or light?). I literally have to go to a notepad to compose my message, then block and copy, and finally paste it into the reply window. I played with default colors, etc but nothing seems to fix it. I even used the classic-theme restorer add-on and still no improvement...

Anybody else have this problem? What is the solution?

I installed Stylish a few months ago, and it worked perfectly for a while - and then one day it just stopped. Nothing works. I checked to see if Firefox had updated - nope. I disabled and re-enabled the add-on - nope. I uninstalled and reinstalled it - nope. I installed a test script, thinking that maybe the problems were with individual scripts - nope. I went through the steps as directed here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/982460) but that didn't work either.

While doing the last one I actually managed to fix another add-on that hadn't worked properly on this computer's Firefox - I have another computer that it worked perfectly on, and I think this computer's files for it were corrupted. I cleared out all that add-on's files on this computer and transferred the other computer's files for the add-on over, and now it works perfectly. However, when I tried this for Stylish (which also works perfectly on the other computer) it didn't work.

tl;dr: there's something wrong with this computer's Firefox and/or its files for the Stylish add-on, and I'd like to get whatever it is fixed.
