Firefox 34.05 incorrectly identifies plugins as out-of-date

As of midnight 12/12/14, Firefox started blocking plugins (in this case, Adobe Flash and Java Deployment Toolkit, possibly others as I've just been to websites that use those), saying that they're out of date. When I click on "Update Now," the Plugin Status page tells me that all my plugins are up to date. (I'm currently running Flash 15.0.0.239 and Java Deployment Toolkit 10.71.2.14, for the record.)

I get the point of this feature, and I really don't want to permanently turn on "always allow," but having to click two "allow" prompts every time I load a website that features Flash is quickly making web browsing intolerable. I'm on the verge of switching to Google Chrome over this.

I'm using Firefox 34, and I can't stand the new search bar. How can I change it back to the old style? I've tried restarting with add-ons disabled, so I know the problem is with Firefox

I can upload pictures to explain better, if needed.

Is there a way to restore the search bar from version 33? I like seeing which search engine I have selected and the ability to change it with a drop down list BEFORE I highlight text, right-click, and select ' Search Google for "xxxx" '

Any way to roll back this latest "improvement"?

Until the most recent update the dropdown listing of available sites in the search box was easily legible and simple to use. Being able to target one's searches so readily and conveniently was one of Firefox's most attractive features.

Now I'm confronted with a panel of mostly indecipherable and in many cases confusingly similar icons. I hate it and want my simple verbal listing back!

Yes, mousing over the icons and hovering will reveal what they represent. But having to do this every time makes what was a quick, convenient routine irritatingly slow and clunky.

Please at least let us choose whether to have icons or a simple listing. Please...

Why is there no option to change UI to allow classic type button control? New control is too spread out and fundamentially useless. HOW TO RESTORE CLASSIC UI?

Second time I have to ask this as some simple minded copy-paste moderator [the-edmeister] refused to answer this question and slammed the door shut on my question thread;


Why was this ever changed? Why was it changed without asking/polling? Why is it so spread out? Why would it be purposely made, to make it difficult to browse the web? Why would you sabotage your own product?! I am NOT the only person out here asking these same questions! I am NOT a conformist, I do NOT like having something taken from a product I use, I do NOT like not having the option to have it as it was, I do NOT like to search for the basic buttons of navigating, I do NOT like having to move my mouse from one end of the screen to the other, just to stop a page quickly [which cannot happen as it is too darn far away now!!!!] This has been driving me absolutely bat-shit for quiet a while now! There was "add-ons" to restore BASIC FUNCTION to a "ADVANCED" browser!!!! Sometimes upgrades are really downgrades. If it is so much better, and it has been repeatedly asked about, WHY WAS IT CHANGED WITHOUT ASKING THE USER or, THE COMMUNITY?? If it is SO great, WHY IS THERE OPTION TO EVEN CHANGE IT BACK INSTEAD OF FORCING IT DOWN THE VERY PEOPLE WHO SUPPORTED THIS PROGRAM!?

How do I get it back, There must be a way! Where is this option or setting?! Please do not make me have to change browsers again! I Joined Mozilla and supported and spread the word about mozilla for over a DECADE!

Are there any plugins that can change this?!

If this question has been "this topic has been covered repeatedly over the last 7 months - locking this thread as it doesn't contain any support questions" - the-edmeister Dec 7, 2014 2:11:14 PM

You sir are WRONG, DEAD WRONG! This question is loaded with questions! If this topic has been covered sooo many times by soo many SUPPORTERS OF FIREFOX, Where is the solution? Where is the awnser to ANY of our questions??? Why slam the door and lock it on SUPPORTERS?! I for one recommend a stronger hiring policy for moderators for Mozilla!


QUESTION OF THE DECADE: "Where did my buttons go, and WHY DID YOU TAKE THEM?!" For aesthetics? Screw that, give me FUNCTIONALITY! How can it be changed back!?

Also are we shooting ourselves in the foot, giving a warning and effectively blocking our own troubleshooter app.

P.S. And is there a bug filed for warnings about outdated Flash on Linux. I have not checked

The latest update of Firefox installed Foxydeal without my permission!!! Please inform me immediately how to remove this program. It is unwanted, intrusive, bothersome and slows down my computer! Up until now, I have loved using Firefox, if this is the way they are going to operate, I will use some other program.

A pervasive problem within the software world is a complacency in which they take no regard for the concerns of their customers while having neither incentive nor motivation to correct basic issues with their product. Take the issue with Firefox freezing up. Customers write to Mozilla with a concern about the Firefox problem, Mozilla’s response is to shift the blame to Flash. After contacting Flash, we discover they have shifted the blame to individual web sites. When addressing these concerns with a favorite web site, they blame either Firefox or Flash. Nobody accepts responsibility, nobody attempts to correct the problem, and Mozilla never takes the initiative to collaborate with Flash to ensure their product is top notch. Further, these companies do not even attempt to address the problem on their end and will never admit to having an issue with their product. The result is that I download Maxthon, Chrome, or some other browser. But Mozilla and Flash are not alone. iTunes is now a terrible product and the new iOS has several issues with no attempt on Apple’s part to fix the issues and Windows 8 is a ridiculous operating system designed for computer incompetent individuals. Instead of correcting software problems, these companies repeat the mantra that the issue is on the part of the customer and not with the software. While blaming the victim may be reasonable to a marketing rep, it alienates the victim and makes them eventually loath the company laying blame upon the customer’s doorstep.

Irony of ironies. I had to create a new account (long, involved, esoteric route) to ask a question, and I could not use my username, because it already was taken (presumably by me ;)) I now have a new Mozilla support account, and the old one with the obsolete e-mail address presumably will sit there waiting for me until some auto-cleaning process eventually eliminates it for inactivity.
