i am trying to install an Extension to every users of my Computer using the %MOZILLA_DIR%\distribution\bundles\MY_EXTRACTED_XPI_GUID_FOLDER (windows computer). When i first run Firefox, it shows a warning page (about:newaddons....)

I can't affort to disable this about:newaddon{GUID} which ask me if i want to enable this new addon or not ... i have tried many default_pref values but none seems to be working...

Is there a way to automatically enable this extension ?

When I click on a .pdf link, Firefox downloads the file to my desktop. This is fine.

Sometimes, however, I would prefer that Firefox simply open the .pdf document in a new window. I know it used to work this way, but it stopped some time ago. How can I control this behavior?

I looked in Preferences > Applications and selected on "pdf". Two entries showed up under "Content Type":

 "Preview.app Document (application/po..." 

and

 "Portable Document Format (PDF)".  

Both entries have the same "Action": "Use PDF Browser Plugin 2.4.4 (in Firefox)"

Oops. I just figured it out. The PDF entry (only) has an extra pulldown option under Action: "Preview in Firefox". I tried it and it works!

I guess the old PDF Browser Plugin 2.4.4 must've quit working some time ago.

When I check my plugins, a few of them say to update due to vulnerability issues. Either some have been updated already and still ask to be updated or when they are actually updated and everything is refreshed, the plugins still show that they need to be updated.

Mon PC : Windows 7 64 bits FR Firefox est maintenu à jour et suit les versions au fur et a mesure de leurs publications


Jusqu'à il y a quelques jours mon Firefox démarrait toujours avec la configuration d'onglets qu'il avait lors de safermeture. Le thème utilisé était le thème que j'avais choisi. Résumé : Je perds les onglets, les pages de démarrage, la personnalisation, les applications, ... je conserve : les favoris, les mots de passe, J'ai vainement essauyé de reconstituer la configuration de mon Firefox. Comment faire pour le remettre en état ?

Pourquoi en cliquant sur un site Français pour poser une question, suis-je dirigé vers un site en anglais ? Why clicking in a french site for requesting help, I am finally rerouted to an english site ?

Merci d'avance

Firefox won't launch from Dock Mac OS X 10.6.8

Firefox doesn't open half the time. I get an invisible window, as indicated in the window pulldown menu, there are several no-name pages listed there (just a blank entry where a page name would be) and no window will open when I click the dock icon Mac OSX 10.6.8. I can't open Firefox from the dock until I completely quit and relaunch it.

I have Reset Firefox, tried with and without addons, COMPLETELY deleted all firefox files from my system (searched for all files hidden or otherwise for firefox) several times and reinstalled fresh, and the problem persists. I have repeatedly deleted sessionstore.js. I have repeatedly cleared cookies and cache. This has started within the last 3 or 4 updates to Firefox.

In a nutshell: Click dock icon when Firefox is running but no windows are open. Nothing. Check Window menu, I see a no-name page, or several no-name pages in the menu. Clicking them only puts a checkmark next to the blank item and no window shows. Only quitting and relaunching Firefox completely solves the issue.

Firefox on OS X 10.9.1 still has huge memory leak (/questions/981674)

I created a new FireFox profile. I launched FireFox using this profile, and closed the default windows. I disabled all extensions. I quit FireFox, and relaunched it. I verified that all extensions were disabled. Only extension is Troubleshooter (previously installed on a test sequence I messed up) Only Appearance is "Default 27.0.1" No Services.

I opened an about:memory window.

In a new single window, I opened the URL...

http://www.toscanamall.com/en/content/3-terms-and-conditions-of-use

I waited for it to load, and FireFox memory (according to Activity Monitor) was bobbing around 200MB. After a few minutes, the memory use was stable around 200MB. I saved my first about:memory report (#1), and then minimized the toscanamall window. I did nothing except move the mouse once in a while to keep the machine awake. During the next 5 minutes FireFox memory use went steadily upwards from the ~200MB to 575MB. I saved the next about:memory report (#2). I un-minimized the window - memory use went down to 270MB immediately, and I saved my 3rd about:memory report (#3).

FireFox 27.0.1, OSX 10.9.2

I've been anticipating the new update I was told would be today, and it was. After I updated it to Version 28 I opened FF and it immediately crashed. I sent in a crash report, and did that three other times. So now, sadly, I'm back to version 27 that stinks as well.

Anyone have any ideas as to whats wrong with it?? I checked my addons for compatibility and said they were fine. I did nothing different except update to newest version. Not sure what else to do. I refuse to uninstall anything at this point, although that seems to be the basic "advice" given here.....it never solves my problems LOL

So, what next?? And thanks for any help.

I have Windows 7
