I've installed Adblock Plus 2.7.1. I can't check the filter list. When I go to the preference, I can't click on the "Filter & preferences..." button, also "Count filter & hits", "Sync Adblock Plus settings", "Show useful notifications", "Show in toolbar".

I tried to subscribe a list in "https://adblockplus.org/en/subscriptions" but an error screen show: """ The address wasn't understood

Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (abp) isn't associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

   You might need to install other software to open this address.

When I upgraded to FF45, my tabs locked up and I wasn't able to move them. I refreshed it and it worked fine so I knew it was an add-on. So I went through all my add-ons and it ended up being Reminder Fox. Does anyone know a way to fix this problem? Or will I just not be able to use this add-on anymore?

I used to have ad blocker plus and it worked great. The icon was on the tool bar. Two days ago I upgraded to Firefox version 45 and ad blocker plus disappeared. I've tried to reinstall it, and when doing so I'm getting a message that says Firefox is blocking it--and it asks me if I want to "allow" it. I click "allow", the run bar completes and it says that ad blocker plus is installed. But it doesn't appear on the tool bar nor do the ads stop appearing. Pretty annoying. Is there anything I can do to get ad blocker plus working with this version of Firefox? Thanks.

I have multiple computers, and I don't know which one is providing the "base" sync, or which one is being upgraded. It appears that new changes (an added extension, or bookmark) gets "erased" by something. There does not seem to be a way to say PC 'A' is the device to sync to or, to say PC 'B' adds a bookmark and I want it reflected on 'A' and 'C.'

It would help if I could access or see the sync so that I could figure what is forming the "base" of my synced data, or if I could edit that directly to push to all devices.

I've been using Anonymox and I have a question on testing whether or not it really works.

I pull up a proxy and geo-test my IP. Usually it's somewhere in India. Then I go visit a known site that I own. Then I check Google Analytics on that site and I don't see anyone in India looking at it. So why wouldn't this be working?

Clients of mine are having issues with this. I tested their card readers in NotePad to ensure they are functioning correctly which they are, and they even work in a different browser like Chrome. The problem is the software I have works best with FireFox but the clients need to be able to swipe credit cards and it looks like the problem is between the card reader and browser. Help!

Well, here I am again.......

I use PasswordBox every day, throughout the day. Actually, I depend on it. It seems that every time Firefox has an update, my Password Box is not showing or usable - even though it shows up in my "Add On's" section.

I have deleted it and re-downloaded it, and PasswordBox still is not useable. Why?

I want PasswordBox, I need PasswordBox, I do not want Firefox to disable it. So, how do I get it back on to my Firefox? Or do I need to quit using Firefox and go back to Internet Explorer?

This is so frustrating - and so yesterday - to have this happen every time an update for Firefox is issued.

I'm using "Ghostery" ver 5.4.9 tracker blocking extension with Firefox 42.0 under Mac OS 10.6.8. It no longer works. although worked with previous Firefox versions. It DOES work with Safari. I get a Ghostery message "page not scanned" and cannot fix the problem with the known Ghostery fixes. Firefox also does not display Ghostery's "options" page when I attempt to access it. Again, this used to work and still does with Safari.

Any help?

Hi! I have a self-hosted extension that I can successfully install using in-line installation by using InstallTrigger.install(...). Sometimes it doesn't show up in my add-on bar after installation and I cannot figure out why. I don't know if the debug thing on the add-on developer tools will help since I am not sure if it is installing correctly. I think it is since the entry point of my add-on shows up correctly.

Any help to go about solving this would be greatly appreciated.

I clicked on "add to firefox." Then a box in the left top corner of my laptop comes up and asks me to allow mozilla to get this going. I click allow. Then another box comes up asking if I still want to install LeechBlock and I do so I click install. Then another box that says Firefox needs to restart and LeechBlock will start downloading after Firefox has been restarted with the option of "restart now" which I choose. It restarts and then ... nothing. What am I doing wrong?

I have downloaded findbar tweak... and it never worked. Today I received notice the findbar tweak was better than ever and updated... still doesn't work Downloaded it again... still doesn't work Some pages you can't even get findbar to appear ReaLLY... i swear I used to use findbar on every site for research.. But then you UPDATED the browser a year or so ago..;. OH MY WHAT AN IMPROVEMENT... firefox crashes every day, sometimes 3-4 times a day... both on my computer and my wife's computer.... and of course the findbar disappeared... rendering the browser useless for research So now I use chrome alongside firefox,,, and their stupid findbar is just as useless, but chrome doesn't crash and freeze every day..

I ask once a week in a google search... when will they fix firefox... keep hoping somebody will post real information.. Oh yeah, turn off add-ons, or yeah clear cashe (every hour?), oh yeah BS

And today.. I get a message with big green checkmark notify9ing the FINDBAR is updated... STILL DOESN'T WORK And PLEASE don't email the 'answer page' where 'the solution can be located' ... , because you've sent that before, and I've been there half dozen times, AND THE ANSWERS DON'T WORK...

So I am asking a question:: God, will somebody please fix firefox? And fix the findbar tweak?

I was an avid fan. I used it on a dozen of my favorite sites. A few days ago after the recent update...41.0.1...the button disappeared.on all of my sites. After checking about:config, confirming the setting and re-booting, the Reader View button has reappeared. BUT, when clicked on, it erases EVERYTHING on the page except the headline and the byline and the left sidebar. Everything else, including the entire text of the story. I am left facing a white page. It happens on every page where the button appears.
