This is the message I receive when I try to download my music order from musicnotes.com: Sorry, this plugin requires that your browser run in 32-bit mode. To change the default startup mode of Firefox to 32-bit, click on the screen and select the menu item: "Show me the 'Application Info' window so I can set 32-bit mode myself" I don't know what screen they are referring to. How do I change the default startup mode to 32-bit? Leanne Norman

I became a NYTimes.com digital subscriber about 6 months ago. I've had no problem reading as many articles as I want until a few days ago. All of a sudden NYTimes.com is blocking me from reading articles, saying I've reached my monthly limit. I contacted NYTimes and they recommended clearing the cache, which I've done 5 times. I've cleared everything, then quit out of Firefox and restarted multiple times and I still have the problem. I've even restarted the computer. I am using Firefox 11.0 which I updated today before my latest attempt at resolving this problem. I'm on a MacBook Intel Core duo OS X 10.6.8. Thank you.

I just updated Firefox to version 15.0 on the Mac. Suddenly, all of my bookmark folders that are supposed to be in my Bookmarks Toolbar are no longer there, and the Toolbar won't let me put them back there. This is substantially non-optimal. I must say, I'm becoming less and less of a fan of Firefox with every passing update, which saddens me.

When I watch a video on YouTube, the comments section does not load. Comments do load with other browsers (e.g.Safari.)

This has occurred since the change in YouTube's comment policies, November 2013.

Google Product Forum question "Why can't I see any comments on Youtube?" showed suggestions to disable Ad Block. I either don't have Ad Block or am not seeing it in my add-ons. Is there another add-on that could be causing the YouTube comments not to load?

This just started happening today and I'm not sure why. I've tried troubleshooting and nothing works. I even tried refreshing Firefox and safe mode. It still crashes and there is no crash report. I can open Youtube's main page just fine, but when I try to play a video it immediately crashes. I've tried playing around with disabling plugins and anything else I can think of, but nothing works.

My app tabs disappear whenever I restart or shut down my computer in Mac OS X. I don't have this problem in windows. I've looked through support countless times and no, my problem is not that I have "clear history" checked in my preferences.

Just a side note, I was really excited for Firefox 4. Seemed really cool and was very fast. This app tab thing was my favorite new feature, and I'm very disappointed that it doesn't work the way it should. And until this problem is fixed Mozilla, I'm going back to Google Chrome.

I've checked every box short of private browsing and when I visit a franchise store website they all ask for my location. I have to block it manually. Is there a way to block it automatically while not using private browsing? I also block third party tracking and use a variety of ad blockers and nothing seems to stop it.
