A possible solution for people having trouble installing Flash

I've been reading through old threads to try to jog my memory about how to install Flash for Firefox. I seem to be having the same problems as in multiple closed threads - Flash claims to install, but Firefox continues merrily using the old version. None of the support answers have helped, but I do remember how I fixed it before - the Flash Installer puts its files in the wrong place and you have to manually copy them to Firefox's Plugins directory. Until the files are in the right place, the helpful suggestion to use about:addons will not work. Now if I could only remember how I figured out where Flash puts its files...

I get notices indicating the there are upgrades available but whenever I try to update, it fails. The box showing the update just runs and runs, but never completes. This has happened numerous times. I have Firefox 9.0.1 and it says I am currently on the release update channel. I don't know what that means.

Do disabled add-ons use resources; is it better to remove them?

Do disabled add-ons use resources? Would removing them completely use less resources? The reason I ask is, I have quite a number of add-ons in the disabled state that I have not removed in case I decide to reactivate/use them again. I was just wondering if having the add-ons associated with the FF software, even in their disabled state, caused Firefox to use any more resources (cpu/ram) than if they were completely removed? If it makes no difference whatsoever in ram/cpu usage if the disabled add-ons are removed or not removed, then I'll just leave them disabled and undeleted. But since my Firefox eats up more and more cpu and memory the longer I use it, I'm interested in getting rid of anything that eats resources, especially if I don't really use them.

I don't think my question is specific to my tech specs, but am using: Windows XP Pro, SP3, and Firefox 9.0.1 (which I intend to upgrade when I finish researching what version is best for me in terms of performance, but especially compatibility with my essential add-ons). Thanks for your time and attention. ~ Zorg54

I have set Firefox so that every time I start it, it shows the tabs from last time. However, just recently it has started with the tabs from last time plus an extra tab.

The other day I installed three addons which all required Firefox to be re-started and each time it did so, there was an extra tab so that by the end of my addon session I had three extra unasked-for tabs. Not a problem really, just an irritation that I want to stop. How can I stop this?

Until recently this did not happen and I just got the tabs from my last session unless I had closed them before shutting down Firefox. Even if I make sure that there are no new, unused tabs before shutting Firefox, I still get a new tab when I start it again.

Hello fellow Firefox users!

For most of us, Firefox suffers from an insane memory leak, this can cause slow-down, and maybe even crashes. This happens mainly because when you close tabs, the RAM they took is still taxing your computer. That among other things cause this annoying leakage.

-SOLUTION- I recently switched to Firefox, and has this leak. I would not put up with it, so I set out for solutions. Here is what I came up with.

Some add-ons I've handpicked, that when combined, are extremely effective.

RAMBack https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ramback/?src=ss

MemoryFox https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/memory-fox/?src=search

MemoryRestart 1.1 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/memory-restart/?src=ss

-ALSO- Firefox acting slow? Try these great add-ons!

SpeedFox 0.9.11 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/speedfox/?src=search

DownThemAll https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/downthemall/?src=search ________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Get all of those together, and make a leak free, and faster Firefox!

I have mistakenly clicked on the "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" in the download dialogue box. I want to open a pdf in adobe when I click on the link. currently the file just gets saved and I cannot change it. I have read thru the suggestions and gone into tools> options> applications and reassigned all of the pdf options to ask first and firefox still just downloads the files to somewhere. I don't want this option and I need to unselect the automatic box.

How do i do so? I would really like to talk to someone on the phone.

My albine worked with the last version before I upgraded to 17. I did not save that version and would like to go back to it. I did save firefox 9 and that is what I am using now but I believe you have a later version that i could use. What was the version before 17 and where can I find it? I hate to go back to windows explorer unless I have to. You should let us know what will not work with your upgrades before we start them. Had I known Albine would not work I wouldn't have upgraded.

Thanks.

I've seen much later versions of Firefox than 9.0.1 on other Mac computers lately. Yet whenever I check the "About Firefox" button, it gives the message that "Firefox is up to date". I have a MacPro, Intel Core i5 running OS 10.7.3, 4 GB memory, and 128GB SSD. I wish to find a "list" somewhere of Firefox versions vs. machine and OS's, and am unwilling to blindly download and install 15.0.1 without knowing if it's OK in advance.

Hello,

My question is; I would like to use swagbucks but it says it's not available in The Netherlands (I know you can't fix this), but is there some option that you can change so my country is changed. I don't have any problem with the fact that the USA uses a different kind of money. Please respond so I know I have to wait for swagbucks to become also applicable in The Netherlands.
