I have a problem when using Firefox in our Confluence (locally hosted) Firefox does not load attachments, such as image files, pdfs, and other documents.

When clicking on the file attachment or image, it just keeps loading. I can choose to download the file no problem, but we would like to be able to view the file(s) in-line in.

Creating a new page in Confluence using Firefox causes the same loading to continue endlessly. Works fine in Chrome and Safari.

Opening attachments on other Confluence sites works fine in Firefox, so it might be a configuration problem at our end.

Any ideas?

Today I've opened Firefox to find out it has been reset to it's default settings. This is a PC we use at work that recently had an issue with malware and adware and I had to remove several Add-Ons and other undesired settings they left (but the first reset occured automatically).

That being solved, I try to log in to Firefox Sync in order to restore my previous settings, bookmarks, etc. But now, when I try to access about:accounts it's just a blank page. The blue spinning wheel appears and it gets stuck there. I also attach a screenshot of Firefox's welcome screen after a second refresh I attempted to see if that solved the problem, which also shows the same loading icon.

I've already tried using Safe Mode without success. I've also performed a full scan of my PC and no other viruses were found.

Thanks in advance for any help.

plugin location /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins not used in firefox 47.0.1, works in 38.8.0

I'm running slackware 14.1.

I have /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so (Installed from alienbob's repo)

If I run firefox 38.8.0, it gets loaded

$ strace -e open /usr/bin/firefox 2>&1 | grep libflashplayer.so

open("/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = 48


But if I run firefox 47.0.1 it is not loaded.

$ strace -e open /usr/local/bin/firefox 2>&1 | grep libflashplayer.so


However, if I set MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins, it works.

$ MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins strace -e open /usr/local/lib/firefox 2>&1 | grep libflashplayer.so

open("/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = 44


38.8.0 is from the initial slackware install, and 47.0.1 is manually downloaded from mozilla.org, installed in /opt and symlinked to /usr/local/bin.


I've attached the "troubleshooting information" from 47.0.1.

How do I go about debugging this? Is this actually an issue, or is it just expected that I export MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH in my dotfiles?

Login error: Cannot reach the Nexus login server. Either your firewall is blocking NMM or the login server is down. I cannot seem to get an answer to this error. Nexus the firewall is blocking NMM or the login server is down. Yet I can manually download the modification from Nexus but cannot load via NMM as it requires a user name and password but filling these two in does nothing and gives me the 'login error' mentioned above. I have refreshed Firefox and have reinstalled the NMM latest version. Nothing changes. Anyone know what might be going on here? Is it just me or is this a problem for others as well? I am frustrated since I have tried all the tricks I know to try and get this issue resolved. I am out of ideas and help.

It happens regardless of whether I type in the URL or click on any link in any automated message from match.com. It seems to have started just a few days ago, around the time of the most recent Firefox version update.

I get this URL: https://www.lexamore.nl/ or http://www.match.com/Profile/Display/About/?trackingid=526116&bannerid=548153&uid=xNfE3CndDnZJw+Z01mda+w==&tp=v&emailid=008918c9-75f4-4be3-b8ef-11dc798ff05a&utm_campaign=venus&utm_medium=email&utm_source=1&lid=201&mw=1

I tried to add the image of the website from a screen shot but can't. it looks like some Norwegian language dating site.

No sound in firefox only. Videos play fine, just no sound. I've tried everything I've found on here.

I tried refreshing. I tried deleting the C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\firefox folder and reinstalling. I usually keep flash disabled, I even tried enabling it.

Sound works fine in everything else, opera, internet explorer, it's only this one browser. It used to work fine. I rarely watch videos with firefox so I'm not sure how long it's broken.

Before invocation the about:memory report for Web Content shows 227.3MB explicit of which 32.4MB are window-objects.

While active the about:memory report for Web Content shows 2.8GB explicit of which 2.7GB are window-objects.

When looking up places using Google maps the Earth / Satellite view is distorted since a few days. The maps are fine, but the photographs look like LEGO in a crash. And now that I contact you and want to include a screenshot even the LEGO disappears. It is all black now. I have no problems viewing the Earth view using Safari.

I use an iMac late 2009 with Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.5 and the latest version of Firefox. What is wrong?
