Hello? I can't install Zenmate VPN add-on(https://addons.mozilla.org/ko/firefox/addon/zenmate-vpn/) though my Firefox is up to date(ver. 57.0). This version of add-on requires at least Firefox ver. 56.0 or later. When I go to this webpage(https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/user/zenmate/), I only can choose the older version of add-on. But when I try to install the older version, the error 'This version of add-on is not compatible with your Firefox' emerges. I don't understand why I can't install it.

I posted this question before & got some answers (from JSherr2000 I think was the username). Anyhow, I'm closer to finding an answer. With my customized theme in Windows 10, the dropdown menus became black & unreadable as I scrolled down them with my mouse. Apparently, when I use an Aero theme, this doesn't happen. Trouble is, I don't like the Aero theme & I can't make as many visual modifications with a standard theme. I'm not sure why this only happens with Firefox (although I haven't installed Thunderbird yet on Windows 10).

I should mention that I'm posting this from my Windows XP machine & I have the lastest 64-bit version of Firefox installed on my Windows 10 machine.

Using Java you take so out, that no chance is there, to use it. But some programs, very important for me, use Java. Why don't you give any user the chance to use it or not. It's my problem, not yours. But no, you make it like Microsoft, eat or die. So good bye Firefox. I hope, some outher started a new browser, in where I can say, what I want and what not.

Firefox stalls showing "connecting" after clean re-installation - any help appreciated!

I am running Firefox 52.0.2 under Windows 10 Pro. The PC has two user accounts, and Norton Security, Trusteer Rapport (and others!)

Up until a few days ago, everything was fine. A classic case of nothing had changed and then ….

I had a problem with the Rapport icon "going missing" on the standard user account, and checked the admin account where Firefox didn't launch.

After looking at the wealth of info/FAQ on this website (and trying lots of the options) I am in the position where after reinstalling Firefox (and deleting the profiles etc) it now stalls with “connecting” showing when first launched immediately after installation. If you then go to trouble shooting and Refresh Firefox it then works fine, and any other instances of Firefox launched with the first instance still open also work fine.

However, once these instances are all closed, when you next launch Firefox, it’s back to stalling with the timer going ad infinitum and showing “Connecting”. The close doesn’t work and you have to use the Menu Exit to close Firefox.

I have at various stages, and in multiple instances, uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, having removed the two accounts profiles, and tried many combinations of restarting in Safe Mode with add-ons disabled (stalls) and Refresh ….. the latter being the only time it works.

Looking at the settings after Refresh, there are no active Extensions - just Logitech SetPoint and Norton Security Toolbar, both of which are disabled. The plug-ins I guess are required by Firefox being Shockwave Flash, Widevine Content Decryption and OpenH264 Video Codec. Appearance is the default theme. Opening the Profile Folder from the Troubleshooting page, shows no Extensions folder.

It’s very frustrating and even worse, although I am a massive fan of Firefox, I’ve had to install Chrome to continue working!

I’m really confused as to what changes between closing the “Refreshed” Firefox, which has set up a new profile, and then ten seconds later starting Firefox and it doesn’t work.

Any help would be much appreciated, as I am far from an expert on this!!! ..... and I want to uninstall Chrome at the earliest opportunity. Many thanks.

Firefox no longer displays images on this real estate website fmrealty.com although it used to; works in IE. Firefox no longer displays shopper reviews on talbots.com - it used to; works in IE.

I have FF set up to clear all history when I close program - I have no cookies and no history in the cache.

I have only 2 add-on plug-ins that are activated: 1. OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. 1.6 This plugin is automatically installed by Mozilla to comply with the WebRTC specification and to enable WebRTC calls with devices that require the H.264 video codec. 2. Shockwave Flash 26.0 r0

What could be the problem? Must I always use IE now? FF used to be my favorite, but not anymore if I can't use it to shop.  :-)

The initial opening of of Firefox goes to the proper home page. When I go to the next tab it goes to an address and page that is not the same as the one I have built. It goes to a Package Tracking page. Probably phishing.

How do I solve this problem.

I'm currently using KDE Plasma on Archlinux and Firefox windows are very laggy when maximized. I have a 4K screen and running Firefox at full 4K causes scrolling to be very choppy and makes YouTube almost unresponsive. If I make the window smaller (about a quarter of the screen or the size of typical 1080p), it speeds up and works normally. I've tried the nightly build, Icecat, and Waterfox and none of them have made any difference.

I use a AMD Radeon R9 Fury X GPU and have the latest version of xf86-video-amdgpu installed and have hardware acceleration enabled in Firefox settings.

EDIT: I've now tried Firefox in Cinnamon Desktop as well as KDE Plasma and they are both equally laggy.
