I just upgraded today to V36.0.4 and the plugin (LegaSuite Printer) that I need for 2 web applications that my office uses is no longer available with the new version. I get the following message: a plugin is needed to display this content. I have tried searching for the LegaSuite printer plugin in the add ons area but it is not found. I tried to revert back to the older version of Firefox but the plugin is still not available. The employees who have not upgraded to the new version are still able to print from the web applications. Any suggestions on how to get LegaSuite back or another equivalent plugin?

Wasn't there some change in Firefox recently that priorities flash over other flash objects that do not have focus?

I swear I thought I read something like this in the release notes, but now going back I can't find anything. I noticed some occasional skips in Pandora today, could be network congestion, but it's never happened before. Then I thought I remembered something got changed with regards to how flash objects are handled when not in focus or something.

printing the update failed message indicates you already know the cause of the failure, why no fix the code, instead of displaying the error message?

If you recall Windows 98 at one point during the installation you got a message that said "If your computer seems to not be responding for a really long time, reboot the … (read more)

If you recall Windows 98 at one point during the installation you got a message that said "If your computer seems to not be responding for a really long time, reboot the computer". Problem with this instruction is the coders (in this case Microsoft) are aware there is a problem during the installation, otherwise, what would be the point of printing this message? So if you know the problem exists, why not fix it, instead of printing a message like that?

Which brings me to the "Update installation failed" message printed by Firefox, when it fails to update itself. Why would you code the software to tell the user the update failed, instead of just fixing the problem? Doesn't make much sense to me.

gisteravond kreeg ik op mijn desktop een bericht van dringende update (het leek van Firefox) daarna zie ik alleen iets dat lijkt op internet explorer er wordt gevraagd om die als standaard browser te installeren maar ik kan niet de startpagine veranderen want die staat vast ingesteld ook bing staat vast ingesteld als zoekmachine ipv Google kan ik via een usb-stick Firefox herinstalleren?

ben ik gehackt of is dit een aanval door internet explorer en bing?

Bij voorbaat dank! Met vriendelijke groeten, Jozef Verplaetse

I just refreshed Firefox after a crash when things stopped working and it took me a day to get everything back to how it was before. I use an older version because some things in a newer version do not work well with my older OS or with me.... But stupid me forgot to check that Firefox does not install updates for newer versions. So when I will restart, I'm upgraded to a newer version that I do not want to be installed. Is there a way to simply remove these pending updates without the need to restart and then uninstall and reinstall the older version - and having to go through re-tweaking once more?

At first, I did the updates everytime I was prompted and got the latest version several days in a row. I continue to get the same reminders numerous times a day even if I've just updated, including every time Firefox is closed and reopened. It is extremely irritating as this is my work laptop.

Just a thought. I had a Complete Theme that I really liked called Silvermel. With the latest updates it is no longer compatible with Firefox. I went to Complete Themes in Firefox Addons to see if I could find something else I liked and found that 95% of them are not compatible. It isn't as bad with my other addons as with Complete Themes but I still loose the use of 1 or 2 addons when Firefox is updated.

Firefox is always talking about how customizable they are and then their advances render it less so. Improving things to the point where you are dis-improving them it is counterproductive. Would you ask the Firefox developers not the change the things that addons need to be usable? If they can't do that then they shouldn't update it. Thank you!

For a while now, the update box that appears to tell me that there is a new update now opens up with a message that says it does not know if my system is up to date or not. I have to click on a link that opens a website to tell me if I am up to date. Is there a problem with this? Well, obviously, there is, but is it just me or is this a known issue and one that hopefully has a resolution?
