Despite forums galore and answers galore, the continuing Flash Plugin is still crashing. This happens on Safari, Chrome and IE as well as Firefox. It's obviously an Adobe issue but no one is addressing that. Considering the major consternation over the web, can we (the world) have a resolution please!

When a pop up window comes up it is - search bookmarks and history window! I cannot log into my bank as login button should open new window to log in but I get the search page. I cannot see larger images as again I get the search bookmarks and history page etc. Happens on all options that should open new page. I am so frustrated, this has been happening since Firefox updated itself 2 days ago to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-GB; rv:1.9.2.8) Gecko/20100722 Firefox/3.6.8 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0C) was fine before that. using windows vista. Can you please advise what I should do? Also can you go back to previous version? Error console eg Warning: Error in parsing value for 'cursor'. Declaration dropped. Source File: https://ib.nab.com.au/nabib/styles/menu_nab.css?id=009 Line: 116

ib.nab.com.au : server does not support RFC 5746, see CVE-2009-3555   and Warning: Selector expected.  Ruleset ignored due to bad selector.

I have checked the option to warn me when a page attempts to redirect or reload, but some redirects are still happening without warning or approval. The redirects are solicitous in nature and hijack me away from a page that I was viewing without me clicking on anything. When it happens, reloading the original page sometimes results in another redirect but sometimes it doesn't. It seems pretty much random. I can only guess that the redirect is somehow imbedded in a banner or something - though I really no very little about how web pages work, so who knows. A few days ago I tried to reste the option by unchecing it and restarting firefox, and tehn rechecking and restarting firefox again. But today I got redirected. It's really a minor annoyance and it doesn't happen often, but I thought throw it out there. Thanx!

After doing what I described in the thread title, Firefox 4 presented the following issues: 1- Tabs would not close. 2- The "forward" and "back" button would not be lit or clickable, as if I didn't visit any websites. Although pages did load, I could not go back and forth between them via these buttons. 3- the "feedback" button in the right-hand side of the screen was completely gone. Trying to download the respective feedback app that Mozilla provides didn't work, it wouldn't download. 4- the App Management screen would not open. 5- I did not save any of the pages from the previous session. So I closed FF 4 and opened 3.6 once again (wich appears to be functioning normally) and the pages came back

So basically my FF 4 got completely messed up. Reinstalling it did nothing. Cleaning the registry with Registry Mechanic was to no avail either. I had to uninstall FF4 since it was unusable.

Possibly useful fact: The apps I had removed in FF 4 were also removed in 3.6, wich indicates that maybe the FF 4 installation did not create copies of it's own for the bookmarks, apps, cache etc, so I am afraid to delete those when the FF 4 uninstallation wizard prompts me to, as it would also probably delete the stuff I have in 3.6 .

I'm trying to download a few files from one certain site. None complete because once the size of the file downloaded matches the file's actual size, both 'download speed' and 'est. time remaining' turn to 'unknown' while the amount downloaded doesn't stop; eg 4.0 MB of 3.0 MB completed. Is this the site's problem, and not an issue with Firefox? All downloads from other sites run normally.

Hi there,

When Download items, ex: picture, mp3, movies, any files (doesn’t matter the file size) when it reaches 100% complete downloads it will disappear automatically in the download list and on the actual file location, I’ve try to copy and paste when the file reach 98%99% and I'll quickly copy the file, but the original 100% file will just disappear, it just happened 2days ago, was fine before.

Also I have been trying to relocate the download file and location, but it still happened, disappearing, so could not download anything at the moment, even for a small little picture.


Please assist in the matter, will be much appreciate, thank you very much! 

Regards,

Firefox support user

Before today (when I updated FF) whenever I would close FF browser it would log me out of everything I was logged in to (ie. gmail, FB, Hotmail etc.) which is the way that I like it. However since updating my browser it keeps me logged in to everything, I have changed all of my settings so that everything is supposed to be cleared when FF closes but it doesn't change anything I am still logged in to all the sites. How do I change this back?
