I only noticed on Dec 13th that Firefox v34 or v35 wiii not connect to any Google site on the 13th of the month. It occurred on 13th January too. After that I experimented with the date reset facility in Windows XP, ran a reboot and found I could reproduce this problem. Google search, maps, analytics are all affected and browser eventually says "server times out" with a plain grey background.

I have devised a routine that backsteps and then jumps for a date so that "the 13th" never happens again on this system.

I've updated the javadevelopment and shockwave flash plugins. These were the only ones that indicated it required updates. I ran these updates independent from the site and through the providers. Still appears to be a problem.

These problems do not occur in Chrome

Is there a setting in FireFox that prevents Generic USB Card Swipers from working?

Clients of mine are having issues with this. I tested their card readers in NotePad to ensure they are functioning correctly which they are, and they even work in a different browser like Chrome. The problem is the software I have works best with FireFox but the clients need to be able to swipe credit cards and it looks like the problem is between the card reader and browser. Help!

I am an it admin and want to install an extension globally, but placing the .xpi file in C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\browser\extensions\ or C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\plugins and restarting the browser does not prompt to install the plugin. I noticed that the cli tags have been depreciated so i did not give that a shot. The computers are windows 7 64 bit and firefox version is 35.

I've done the trick where you change the config: "media.windows-media-foundation.enabled" value from true to false. But after the new update to Firefox 35, all vines are just permanently frozen for me. I can see they load up perfectly, but they never start playing.

Hey there

I tired to install GimpShop, which suppose to be already customised to look like a PSH version of Gimp. However the installer makes some funny business and all the crapware possible: toolbars, addons etc. I stopped the installation and removed the crapware using AdwCleaner, SpyBot 2.0 and Eset Online Scanner. However, my dictionaries, add-ons in both Firefox and Gimp were either disabled or removed.

So, here are my questions:

1. Why where they disabled or removed? BTW I couldn't reactive them. 2. Why Firefox is the only browser that installs without asking addons form freeware installers (which very often you can not uncheck their installations)? Chrome has less crap and Opera never has anything unwanted installed. 3. Why Firefox keeps hanging up ale slowing down the system when there is only one heavy page? Or keeps freezing when Adobe Flash in YouTube constantly crashes?
