I go to a website that requires a Java plug-in. I downloaded the latest update (21) for Java 7 from Oracle but when I go to Add-Ons>Plugins in Firefox 20 the Java plug-in doesn't appear and when I do a search at the Get Add-ons nothing that mentions the Java Plug-in shows up. Where can I get the plug-in required to use with JRE7u21?

Mac OS 10.7.5, Firefox 20.0, Java Runtime Environment 7 update 21

When I enter fullscreen mode I'd like all toolbars to auto-hide, and maybe only show when I move my mouse to the top edge, or when I hit Cmd+L or such. Other windows that are not made fullscreen should keep their toolbars in place.

My reason for going fullscreen is to have the entire screen dedicated to the current website / webapp. It's no use getting rid of the OS toolbars if I can't get rid of Firefox ones.

Chrome calls this feature Presentation Mode, it's in the View menu right above Full screen. The latter does not hide toolbars, just like Firefox's. So I guess what Firefox calls "full screen" is actually consistent with that of Chrome, but it lacks Presentation mode. Is there an option or an extension to add it?

Also note that this is very different from the various Kiosk mode extensions. I don't want Firefox to start fullscreen, to limit browsing to the current website, to disable right click and keyboard shortcuts, and all the other limitations put in place by Kiosk mode extensions.

Whenever I click a link in firefox, whether I option-click it or right-click it and choose "Open in new Tab." Firefox lately always opens a new window, not a tab. For the life of me, I cannot get it to open a page in a new tab.

There was a time when I had one window open, and every time I would choose to create a new tab, it would create it in that window instead of the window I was currently in, but I have since closed that window, and now I cannot get a link to open in a new tab no matter what I do.

I have tried both selecting and deselecting "Open new windows in a new tab instead" In Firefox preferences, restarting Firefox in "Safe" mode, etc. to no avail.

How do I fix this?

Hi,

Firefox has stopped displaying websites correctly. When I view a certain page it does not longer align images, or show bullet points etc.

I have gone thorugh all the troubleshooting steps available online like clearing cache and history, starting in safe move. Disabling add-ons, re-installing firefox etc, but nothing helps. Other browsers display my site just fine.

Its a staging site at the moment for a new website. On the home page for example, there are 4 box areas each with a thumbnail image, which does not align with the text anymore.

Really hope someone can help me with this issue.

http://www.hd-plugin.com/download/download.php

This is the homepage from which I am asked to download the following Plugin: otherx.zip

I read somewhere, that that would be malware. For the whole Flash-Problem doesn't seem to be solved and I unfortunately need to use flash for www.home-away.com, I am concerned.

If I go through Firefox Extras Plugins, I can not find that one, which makes me wonder why I would be asked to install a zip-File, which I can not get through Firefox directly.

Please answer!

Thanks

I have been using firefox for years now and up until last week I have not had any problems. However, firefox started crashing my PC and forcing it to restart and my registry started getting all thrown out of whack!

I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox several times, repaired my disks, defragged, and scanned for viruses.

Why is this happening????

Firefox is suffering from seriously annoying lag spikes on my mac, while other browsers work perfect. The problem is the worst when watching Youtube video's or when typing (text only appears after 1-2 seconds when the spike happens.)

I've tried the about:config stuff, I used Speedyfox, googled for days but nothing seems to be working. What's worth trying? I love Firefox and I don't want to switch to another browser.

Could it be firefox plugin process? It seems to be eating a lot of RAM from times to times (I updated Java and Flash).

Thank you

I just bought a new computer that came with Windoze 8. I hate it. Firefox works occasionally.

It is pinned to the taskbar, but I cannot get it to start. I click on it and nothing happens.

When I go to Start and click on Firefox, it does not staty. IE and other programs start, but not Firefox. Is Microsoft blocking it? I am trying to run a business and I have to use Firefox on a Windows machine. Any suggestions?

Firefox 19.0 there is a website where they have a gallery of pictures all the images from the gallery are hosted on Photobucket, they use to show up as normal but now for some reason they don't, I tried clearing the cookies and the cache, I made sure the download images automatically is check and every other bit of advise I could find on the web to no avail.

One thing I notice though is if you right click the missing image to get to view image information you will see Location: the address of the image is correct (copy and paste in the address bar bring up the image) Type: text/html (This is odd it should be img/jpeg) Size: 0 kb (of course the image was not downloaded) Dimension: 0 x 0 (again no image downloaded)

So if anybody has an idea how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

How can I prevent Firefox from automatically updating?

Hello,

I am trying to prevent Firefox 28 from automatically updating to Firefox 29 (on OSX 10.7.5).

I have the option "Never check for updates" checked under 'Update' in the 'Advanced' Preferences. I have "Automatically update Search Engines" unchecked. I have uninstalled Firefox 29 completely using two separate uninstall clean-up kits and emptied the trash before re-installing Firefox 28... Yet every time I finally re-arrange, customize and re-sync Firefox 28 back to the way I like it, I restart my Mac and Firefox 29 rears it's over-drawn, bubbly, space-wasting, UN-SYNCED, ridiculous tabs on top nonsense user interface.

I've tried to work with Firefox 29 but the new SYNC simply does not work and that's a deal breaker. I need the changes I make on my mac to be reflected across the other two systems on my desk (one WinXP, one Win7) and vice versa. When I try to sync on FF29 it takes me to a page to log in and then refuses to recognize my email and password (which I have thoroughly confirmed on my other systems as correct).

Can you please help me prevent Firefox 28 from automatically updating to Firefox 29?

Within the last few days I have noticed that video on every single website is constantly playing poorly. The motion is perpetually jerky, stilted, and choppy EXCEPT when I play the video in full screen and then it plays perfectly. Also, only the visual portion of the videos are affected, not the audio. This problem only exists for me on Firefox. I have tried other browsers where the same videos played without issue.

I have tried re-installing Flash, turning off hardware acceleration, changing refresh rates, and a host of other fixes I have found online via Google searches. I have never experienced this issue before and was dismayed when nearly every situation even remotely like this that I found was dated to last year or earlier as I had presumed that others may currently having the same issue.

I have not added any new add-ons or plug-ins recently to my knowledge and I am the only one to use this computer (MBP). Any recent changes would be attributed to various updates that would have happened as I make sure that all things are kept up to date as much as possible. I would really rather not have to use Safari every time I wish to watch a video online.
