When I open up firefox, my fav.icon's do not load, even if I click on the link. Also none of the YouTube video downloader extensions load. What's going on?

As to the extensions, you need to contact their support.


You can check these prefs on the about:config page to make sure they are still default.

browser.chrome.favicons

browser.chrome.site_icons

Type about:config<enter> in the address bar. If a warning screen comes up, press the I Accept the Risk button. At the top of the screen is a search bar.
