I am trying to configure Firefox so I can use my CAC card reader with it. My problem is when I try to load a module under Tools>Options>Advanced>Encryption>Security Devices. When I try to load acpkcs201.dll (or any of the other alternate .dll files) I get an error message that says "Unable to load module".

When I try to use the DoD Configuration 1.2 add-on from forge.mil, it also is unable to make this configuration.

The CAC reader and software works fine under Chrome and IE. The only problem is the .dll wont load up in Firefox using the add-on or manually.

Does anyone know how to make this module load properly?

I am using: Windows 7 x64 Firefox 3.6.9 SCR331 card reader ActivClient 6.2

My Firebox browser had all of it's menu bars, address bars, and toolbars closed (to make room for a web screen on a Netbook). I am now left with the Tab area... and the title bar... but *nothing* else.

While in this state, I can't find any area of the interface where I can right click to "recheck" any of my bars... menu, address, or toolbars.

Is there a Windows registry setting that could get me started? Or perhaps a key click combination to enable any of those functions?

Right now I'm stuck with no ability to navigate to another site, or do anything other than open more tabs.  :-)

Help! Thank you!

Every now and then, when I'm on Firefox it will not respond then the window will fill white and at the top it will say "Mozilla Firefox (Not Responding)".

It responds after about 10-15 seconds but this keeps happening every 2-3 Minutes and is making Firefox unusable to watch videos on Youtube and read other things as when it starts responding it take me back to the top of the page.

I cannot pinpoint which websites this is on but it normally (But not always) happens when I have more than one tab open (Usually on Youtube + SammyServers.com)

I am using Firefox 3.6.9 so is my husband. When I go to many sites, I get this error message AFTER it displays the page for about 10 seconds. My husband can go to the same site and it stays up. We have checked my setting against his, cleared the cache and history repeatedly and mine still does it. I am using win7 64 bit and Firefox3.6.9. Please help me get this issue resolved or I will have to go back to using IE which I totally dislike, but I can view the same web pages and it does not go off. Thanks, JoAnna

Hello,

The problem is actually explained in the title. However, I'll repeat it with some modification.

When I type something in my address bar, I'm expecting to be redirected to Google search results, if entered string isn't an actual web address. That's what I'm used to for quite some time in FF now. As opposed, when I now enter something in address bar, I get this opened: http://something/ Obviously, not something that's much appreciated.

Please check this link before you direct me to set keyword search via about:config, because I think that this is the way it was before, while everything was working.

I've got Firefox configured correctly and it always opens my last session. However, sometimes when the computer crashes and a second Firefox window is open (this time it was either a pop-up window or the Firefox update window), Firefox only recognizes that window as the "last session," and it loses the most recent multi-tab session. (Hmm, maybe what I need is "re-open recent sessionS" or "last multi-tab session" ?!)

Anyway ... is there any way I can retrieve yesterday's open tabs without picking through my history and finding them one-by-one?
