Whenever I visit a page that contains even the smallest of Flash objects, Firefox stops responding briefly and then a dialogue pops up to say that Shockwave Flash has crashed. I have tried all of the fixes I have found on other questions: I have reset Firefox, run it in Safe Mode, disabled all extensions, reinstalled both Firefox and Flash, downgraded both Firefox and Flash and turned off Flash's "Protective Mode" etc. The problem only seems to have come about after I upgraded to Firefox 20 yesterday if that is of any help. Flash also crashes on IE and doesn't work properly on Chrome (YouTube does not play sound for example). I have run out of ideas and I was wondering if anyone has anything that I could try. Thanks in advance for any answers!

I can provide a screenshot to help illustrate my problem. Every page I load has numerous ad boxes embedded into the page from "Ads by Browse to Save". Does anyone else have this problem? Is this something that firefox added to their browser or do I have a malware problem? (I see no option to post a screenshot of the problem, as is advised on the community help homepage. Maybe I will have that option once my question is posted.)

I have reset Firefox. I have reset to blank and to Mozilla as default. I don't understand your instructions about malware (but is it???) resetting and too nervous in messing up my laptop to try ! :(

I now detest Delta Search and want it totally removed forever.

Nothing gets rid of it.

How do I set downloads to automatically save instead of prompting me to open them?

I recently reset Firefox. Before whenever I downloaded a file, it automatically prompted me if I wanted to open the file or save it to my computer, with saving it to my computer preselected. This was fine because I almost never want to open these downloads automatically, and I like all my downloads to go into my downloads folder on a separate drive with much more space (not the temp folder on C:\). The option "do this automatically for files like this from now on" was useful for the rare file type that I would want to open automatically (usually because it's a very small music file or something).

Now every time I download virtually any file type, the prompt comes up with 'open the file' preselected, and "do this automatically for files like this from now on" greyed out. As a result, on more than one occasion, I have mistakenly clicked ok and opened huge files automatically after downloading (which has resulted in them popping open even hours later and playing automatically once the download finished). I'd like to be able to select "save it to my computer" and have it do this automatically, but that option is greyed out.

The help available seems to suggest going into options>Applications and changing the action for the appropriate content type, but: (a) not all the content types I download are listed, i.e. .mov, .mpeg, .rar, etc. (b) changing the action for the content types I do have (.wmv and compressed/zipped folder only) has done absolutely nothing.

I'm still prompted for each and every file I download, still preselected to open the file, with the "do this automatically for files like this from now on" still greyed out.

I'd like to change it to the way I had before, or at the very least automatically set all downloads to save into my downloads folder.

I can't open anything in my Downloads list. I've tried resetting firefox and I've also tried everything in your article "What to do if you can't download or save files" but nothing helps. I tried to upgrade to the latest firefox to see if this helps but once I've hit the Download button, 1 minute later it appears in my downloads list and... same issue... I can't open it to run it! It's like it's crashed, because no amount of clicking on a download will activate anything. It seems like the Downloads list is dead! Also, (and I think this is linked), I cannot save web pages. I go though the motions and it looks like it's doing the right thing but the pages don't save - they just disappear into the ether! I'm on Windows Vista and have been downloading things happily for years, but suddenly this problem has occured and I've run out of ideas now... Please help!

I have firefox 20.0.1

This iminent thing must have ridden in on some download but it is all over the browser trying to put up spammy stuff in facebook, gmail, pinterest. I t may be partially blocked by some other add-ons like adblock-plu or better privacy, but it is there creating spurious toolbars on all my social sites and with little popout side windows.

I ran Malwarebytes and it found nothing.

I tried to follow these instructions from http://botcrawl.com/how-to-remove-the-search-iminent-search-the-web-hijacker-virus/#Firefox to remove it: Step 1: Open Firefox, and navigate to Tools -> Add-ons (Ctrl+Shift+A). Step 2: Select Extensions and find the particular Search Iminent Search The Web Toolbar extension, and click disable and remove.

BUT the "remove" button was absent.

I tried to follow these instructions to remove Iminent cookie: How to block the Iminent.com cookie 1.From the Tools menu, select Options 2.In the upper section of the Options window, click Privacy 3.In the Cookies tab, click Exceptions 4. In the new Exceptions – Cookies window, enter Iminent.com in the Address of Website field and click Disable.

BUT there was no "cookie tab."

I have been leaving the following site open during inclement weather while doing other things (spreadsheets, documents, financial programs, etc.) to periodically check weather quickly.

http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=30340

Lately, there have been video advertisements on this site that will automatically play with sound that are obnoxious and distracting. I would like to prevent these. The webmaster for the site claims that they do not allow these ads and yet, I get them. He says they cannot replicate the issue and suspect its a problem with my settings. I do not know if the same thing happens with advertisements on other sites or not.

On a related note, is there a way to prevent "roll over" ads from playing?

Win7 64 bit Firefox20 Adobe flashplayer 11 plugin

when streaming, Task Manager notes:

Flashplayerplugin__11__7__700__169.exe *32 -- uses 50% of CPU and higher

plugin - container.exe*32 -- uses 40% of CPU and higher

Using 100% of CPU results in choppy video. I do not believe this heavy CPU use was not the case before I upgraded from Firefox13 and Adobe flashplayer 11. I tried downgrading but this did not seem to make a difference.

Thanks for any help.

This has been going on for years. When I have 3 or 4 tabs, especially facebook open, and am watching a youtube video Firefox freezes up a lot. I just dealt with it but I'm starting to get sick of it. The only addons I use are DownloadHelper and AdBlock Plus. I have a lot of plugins disabled. I don't know what is causing this but I just checked on my CPU Usage and Firefox was using 266,000+ K and that's not counting Flash, which was using 70,000+ K. Someone please help me fix this extremely irritating issue.

Hi folks,

I've got the feeling that I've been here before!! I logged on this morning, and my Roboform toolbar was missing (again)!

Eventually, I discovered that Firefox had updated from V21 to V22 overnight. A quick Google search has led me to discover that V22 does not work with Roboform. Therefore I need to get back to V21. I cannot find anywhere how to get back to V21.

I have found in my downloads folder the V20 link, so I now have V20 reinstalled (= Roboform is working again), but I would rather have V21.

Anyone got any ideas about how to to this???

Thanks

I have been using Firefox with no problems for over a year. Now, yesterday, for the first time, when I turned my computer on and started Firefox, it did not save my multiple tabs! I lost them all! So, after rebuilding and starting all over (including my 3 pinned tabs), I shut down my computer.

This morning, again, same thing. The 11 tabs I had opened did not re-open (just one main tab) and my 3 pinned tabs are again - GONE!

Why is this happening all of a sudden? This is very discouraging. Please provide step-by-step instructions on how to make sure this does not keep happening. I want to save multiple tabs (and pinned tabs) and have them all open whenever I go online please!

Thanks, Cass
