I keep getting this popup when using Firefox: "WARNING! your flash player may be out of date." I can tell it's phishing and I've never had this problem before. How can I get this to stop when using Firefox? It doesn't happen with IE.

Hello, I have this problem were whenever I try to type in something into the search or addresys bars, nothing happens. It's like the enter key isn't working. There is not usual picture next to the search bar (the one that shows you what search engine you're using. If it's google it shows a "g" next to the bar). Instead there is just a picture of a blank page as a placeholder. When I try to go in and add a new search engine by managing the search engine list, there is no option to add a new search engine. I have already tried going into the firefox folder on my computer and deleted the formhistory.sqlite file that is the supposed problem. No avail. I have even gone so far to delete and reinstall firefox to my computer. Well, that didn't work either. So I waited until the next update to see if my problem would be fixed THEN. I am currently on firefox 19.0, which is, as of writing, the most current version. I have tried restarting firefox with all addons removed. And for good measure, I deleted anything that ended with ".sqlite" in my firefox folder. I have tried to get the the about:config menu but do not know how considering how my address bar refuses to search. The greatest thing is that my address bar can still remember all the sites I've typed into it before, but for some unknown reason, cannot take me to any of them! I really don't know what to do next. I can only suppose that I could try completely deleting everything firefox has stored on my computer, as I don't know if just uninstalling the program actually did that. Other then my search bar problem, firefox has been acting fairly normally besides a few minor hiccups here and there. I am trying to remember if I downloaded anything before my search bar problems started or not, but it is always a possibility. I did download the firefox beta for windows 8 metro mode but I can't remember if that was before or after firefox started acting up. It's possible considering that softonic thought they were being really nice by including fbdownloader for free with my firefox metro browser. I am now no longer using softonic ever again. But that's all the evidence I can think up right off the tip of my head. Sorry if this was kinda long, and if any of my description isn't clear or make sense please ask and I can try to verify. Also, if I haven't said this already, my search bar is only not working in firefox. Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari are all working fine. Just my luck, I guess. If anyone could help me out, I'd be much obliged. Not being able to use the address bar has been really inefficient. Thank you.

I updated Mozilla yesterday and as it happened, this new PDF viewer it magically came with doesn't cooperate with the sites I need to use for my workplace. I want the old way of viewing PDF's back, or just to be able to disable the built-in PDF viewer so that I can use the Adobe PDF viewer and see my files once again. I found a way to disable all PDF viewers, through about:config, but now I have to download the PDF's to my desktop to even view them and this doesn't exactly flow with my work. Please help!

I downloaded some program from cnet, which used to be a reputable source, but now seems to be riddled with malware. The item I downloaded was not what I thought it was and I promptly removed it from my computer. I also managed to remove snap.do toolbar from all my browsers and my computer with little effort. HOWEVER, I cannot seem to get rid of snap.do. It seems as though it has hijacked the startpage of all my browsers, IE, Chrome,Safari, and Firefox all show snap.do whenever I open them. Of course I can click past this and go to a different page with no trouble. I can reset the homepage in tools-internet options and every time I hit the little house button, I can go back to that homepage. BUT if I turn my browser OFF, when I turn it back on, snap.do is the homepage once more. I have run anti-malware from Kaspersky and Webroot, neither finding anything. I have reset Firefox. I have done a flushDNS through config. I have checked all the settings for the LAN, Internet protocol, and HOSTS folder. I have even reset the router to factory settings. I am at a complete loss. All I want is for my homepage to come up when I open my browser, any browser. Since Firefox is my preferred browser, I am asking you. Please help Running: Windows XP SP3 with latest available Firefox

In previous versions of Firefox, like 19.0, it is a simply matter to disable graphics and/or java. Simply go to Firefox "Tools", "Options", "Content", unclick "Load images Automatically", unclick "Enable JavaScript".

With Firefox 23.0.1, I don't see that as a option. How do I easily disable and enable the graphics and javascript?

I am aware that "Adblock" has some capabilities to do some of this. Although I find Adblock more complicated and have not been able to achieve my goals with it.

This is very important to me.

My firefox has been fine for years up until a couple of days ago..

Sometimes when typing into google the autocomplete changes what im typing and sends me to the wrong site.

Any site i visit randomly redirects to worldsocialsurvey.com, and then takes me to loads of shopping pages when i cancel it.

I have ran virus scans with, Trend,Malwarebytes, Superantispyware and used combofix yet all of these say i am clean and nothing is wrong.

I have looked in about:config, and looked for anything that may redirect me like Babylon has a habit of doing, but it all appears to be fine.

Any ideas?

I have the latest version of firefox

I'm working on development of a HTML5 web application that requires accessing resources from other domains through AJAX. On Chrome browser, there is a nice way to disable web security and allow cross-domain access for AJAX. However, when it comes to Firefox, there isn't an answer that I found. I'm sure this questions might have been asked a multiple times in various forums. But, does Firefox provide a way to disable this security feature and enable cross-domain access?

Product information: I'm running the latest Firefox on Windows 7 box.

HTTPS: This Connection is Untrusted -> click "Add Exception" -> can NOT click "Confirm Security Exception" button

When using FF 19.0.2 on Ubuntu or Win7, to work on lab machines where an invalid self-signed cert has previously been "permanently stored", but has since changed. I (and much of the rest of the internet it would seem) frequently get caught in a catch 22 where an exception must be added to continue, but FF will not permit an exception to be added because "This site provides valid, verified identification. There is no need to add an exception".

I see this reported time & again in forums, but it seems as yet unfixed.

Doesn't seem to be an issue if one is rigorous and _always_ UN-checks "Permanently store this exception". To fix includes contortions through numerous work arounds, including clearing certs (hard, when cert list is full of self-signed localhost certs), history, cache, etc. until FF finally lets you "Confirm Security Exception".

I am at my wits end, and will have to start thinking of alternative browsers for day to day use.

FYI: IE & Chrome both let me confirm the damn exception and move on with my life.

If i load up youtube, click on a video it plays normal, its loading, sound is working. but when i open a new tab and then go back to the youtube tab my video stutters, or i could basically say it stopped its les then one frame per second and it skips about 50 frames everytime. sound most of the times does work but also stops sometimes. It only happens when changing tab, not if i scroll down on the videopage or anything. its really annoying. i've tried google chrome and safari aswell, all works fine.

Every time that I try to get on YouTube or certain other sites, Firefox locks up for at least 60 seconds. Eventually I have to use Task Manager to close firefox. Then I have to go to IE or Chrome to view the pages.

I can get no help on this matter. I have tried every recommendation. I am afraid that firefox has no interest in solving this. I can use IE or Chrome [or Safari] without problem.

by the way, every time I try to contact firefox I have to register under another ID. My ID NEVER works and firefox NEVER sends a Password help email. EVERY time firefox says that my email is already used for firefox, but I NEVER receive ANY password email help at my address.

This is driving me crazy!!!! I have a presentation at school, and that computer won't let me change the settings. How is this even possible?
