I've been using firefox for a really really long time, and I play quite a lot of facebook games. Yesterday morning, things were working perfectly fine, but later in the day, I suddenly started getting these shockwave errors. I can't recall downloading anything and I must have uninstalled and reinstalled the flash player at least 8 times. It's honestly starting to frustrate me. I love firefox, but if the browser refuses to work, I probably won't be using it for much longer.

Hello there,

I've had this problem for a long time, and I've done most everything suggested in other forums regarding this matter. I've disabled "disabled protected mode, disabled hardware acceleration, made sure everything is updated, and nothing works. Unfortunately, this makes Firefox so unusable that I've had to switch to another browser for the time being, but it's having it's own issues. Very frustrating! I like Firefox and would like to have it working, but this "shockwave flash plugin" problem has been a persistent problem for the last year.

I've seen many other users who have not been able to fix the problem via the above suggestions, so--what's the verdict? Is there something else I can try?

Cheers

Shockwave Flash 12.0.0.77 keeps crashing. It was only installed on 14 March 2014 and I am told it is up to date. I am running Firefox 28.0 on Windows 7 home premium.

The message I get is Warning: Unresponsive Plugin Shockwave Flash maybe busy, or it may have stopped responding, <snip>

I used to get this with an older version of Shockwave Flash and an older verison of Firefox, but in the last few days it has started to happen again (since I updated Firefox to the latest version).

Hello everyone, sorry for the long post.

For the last 3 days, I have been experiencing a very frustrating issue with videos posted ONLY on Facebook.

Every time I try to open a Facebook video, the Facebook player opens (the one where you can see comments and likes on the right side), and Firefox gives the impression that the video is loading. But after a while, a 'cross' appears in the middle of the screen, below which 'No video with supported format and MIME type found' is written [Kindly refer to the attached screenshot].

Prior to this problem, I had NEVER, in 2 years, experienced any issue whatsoever with playing ANY videos on the Web. Firefox just suddenly decided to stop playing Facebook videos.

WHAT I ALREADY TRIED: - Reload video pages and play them again (FAILED) - Clear cache, cookies and restart Firefox (FAILED) - Start Firefox in Safe Mode (FAILED) - Uninstall Flash Player, try to play videos with the default Firefox player (any video on the Web would play, but Facebook videos FAILED) - Enable the Open H264 Cisco codec (FAILED) - Changing a few values in about:config *(such as media.directshow.enabled) to true/false (FAILED) - Refresh Firefox from https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/refresh-firefox-reset-add-ons-and-settings (FAILED)

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: - I use Firefox 35.0.1 and have no other browser (besides the default Internet Explorer 6 which I never use) - I use Windows XP SP3 Professional - I have not downloaded/installed any software/extension/add-on which could have caused this problem

I still love Firefox, and have no intention of migrating to a competitor's browser, which is why I hope a prompt solution shall be found. As well, I am not considering dropping XP SP3 anytime soon; it is very stable and fulfills my requirements.

Thanking you for your time.

UPDATE! This question is not marked as answered, as the issue is a new 'feature' of Firefox 22, and if you read all the comments you'd see that. Clearly, with the large volume of 'new' answers coming in saying the same thing over and over, people aren't, so I'll say it here: THERE IS NO NEED TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION ANY MORE.

I recently asked about my UI being big and fuzzy, and managed to get that fixed in the about:config, but websites are still big.

For some reason, the default zoom (ctrl+0) is at 120%.

I tried the FullZoom and NoSquint addons, but both had one issue. They messed up the top level image view (which for me works with the old default image style addon) and made the unzoomed image a bit bigger than my screen, and the magnifying glass icon which should appear with a + or - in it when I mouse over the image is just a regular mouse pointer instead.

How can I reset the default zoom to be 100% (or preferably about 80% because even 100 seems to be overcompensating for my high dpi screen) without an addon messing up my default image view?


Further details. If I disable the 'old default image style' addon, the top level image view works fine with the NoSquint or FullZoom addons.

"Your connection is not secure

The owner of www.google.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate."

This is the same message I receive for every website, including Mozilla. I have been unable to find a workaround and so far this has made the entire browser useless. It is only effecting Firefox, as Chrome and Safari are working perfectly fine.

My desktop is running Windows 8, which recently crashed. Since then, every time I start up, Firefox 17.1 (which is in the startuo folder) does not load, but brings up an error window saying (Couldn't load XPCOM). Dismissing the window then allows me to start Firefox myself. I have uninstalled Firefox (but not the personal stuff), downloaded a new copy of Firefox 17.1 and re-installed.... same thing happens.

Just to clarify ..... this only happens once, following the initial boot up of the desktop. I dismiss the error window and all is well after that.

Any bright ideas please?

What is XPCOM referring to? A missing dll file? can I find this file elsewhere and move it to the correct location?

Many regards.

These are the startup videos and other videos you are supposed to be able to view when you first install Firefox. They're not from Youtube or anywhere else. They're coming from Mozilla's homepage or part of Firefox to help you get up and running when you first install it.

I have been using the Downloadhelper add-on for years on my laptop with no problem. I noticed about three days ago it was no longer working with any Youtube videos. The rotating icon is still working, and when I click on it, it still gives me the file type choices for downloading. However, after I click my choice, the green arrow shows the downloading process, but comes up '0 bytes' for every type of video.

I am not having problems downloading videos from other sites that I've used before, just Youtube.

Also, I am able to use Downloadhelper with Youtube on my other computer without a problem.

Can you please help? Thanks.

Windows 7, Firefox 30

After changing how Firefox handled cookies (changed to forbidding 3rd party cookies, asking permission to set cookies), I rebooted my system, and Firefox would not start - I got the error message in the question.

When I try to access me Barclays Online Banking webpage I receive this error message : The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

If I clear my history I can then access the Barclays login page and re-enter my details but as soon as I log out I receive the error message once again when I go back. I have no problem whatsoever using this website with Internet Explorer.

Please help !!
