Hello,

Everything was running completely fine in Firefox and then all of a sudden it simply stopped displaying .swf files. Where they should be is simply blank. On websites with a background I can see the background through where the .swf file should be. This includes opening locally saved files as well as every website with a .swf file that's supposed to play.

I do mean suddenly quite literally, as it was right in the middle of a browsing session. I changed nothing, just...one minute they were working fine, the next they completely halted. It's clear the program is recognizing that something's supposed to be there, as Adblock pops up a little "Block" tab over where the file should be, but again, that space is completely blank. It's not black, it's transparent.

I've completely uninstalled Shockwave and reinstalled it from scratch, and "updated" it three times now, all to no effect.

I don't know when this happened, but today I noticed that I cannot paste text into youtube comments on firefox. It still works just fine on Chrome. I tried to use an addon to copy plain text only, but that didn't help, nor have I ever needed it before.

Is this google's latest monopoly trick or something, or what is going on?

Mac OS X 10.10.5

Firefox 40.0.3

I have set FireFox to use a proxy(just the browser not my entire system) but there simply is no prompt for username and password in Preferences: Advanced: Network: Connection settings. Additionally, many times people bring up changes that need to made in about:config but either those preference names no longer exist or they have no effect on this issue.

Does anyone know how to get FireFox to prompt for username/password or where to find the login?

Thanks, MDS

Firefox v40.0.3 does not launch

I am attempting to create a customized installation package for Mozilla Firefox v40.0.3.


>> OS : Windows 7 SP1 x64 <<----

I have performed a Custom installation of the browser (unchecked 'Install Maintenance Service' check-box).

After successful installation, copied the following files to the respective directories:

1. Copied 'local-settings.js' to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref'


Contents of this file-----------

pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");



2. Copied 'mozilla.cfg' to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox'


Contents of this file-----------

// pref("browser.startup.homepage", http://intranet/); pref("browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser", false); pref("app.update.auto", false); pref("app.update.enabled", false); pref("app.update.service.enabled", false); pref("browser.cache.disk.smart_size.use_old_max", false); pref("browser.search.update", false); pref("datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled", false); pref("signon.rememberSignons", false);


After performing these steps, when I attempt to launch firefox, it fails to launch at all. No errors are displayed. In Task manager, I noticed firefox.exe getting invoked but it exits within seconds.

What is the cause? Please help.
