Firefox 14.01 and Flash 11.3 Issues

I was previously having problems with Firefox 13 (forget which version specifically) after it updated with using Flash as many others were. I was excited to see that a v. 14 is now out and updated hoping it would solve my issues, but I am still having trouble. I feel confident it is an issue with Flash; I have gone through and individually disabled and re-enabled add-ons, and can use Firefox fine when Flash is disabled, and everyone goes down hill once re-enabled.

In general, my issues are that Gmail, Facebook, and many other websites won't load when Flash is enabled. They will start to open, get stuck, and the Firefox completely freezes. Turning off the add-on fixes all of this, and turning it back on brings it back.

I have Windows Vista as my O/S.

Any suggestions for further troubleshooting? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both Firefox and Flash.

Hello

I want to configure firefox 14.0.1 with default settings for all my users using a file mozilla.cfg But the command defaultPref () is not valid. I use pref () but then the user can not change the parameters

With Thunderbird 14.0, I have no problem, the command defautPref () can be used

Why?

I have not been able to have Firefox load successfully since yesterday. I have uninstalled and re-installed twice, still no luck, I ran a full virus scan and found no issues.

I have been given no crash IDs because it just freezes for minutes on end and then I force quit. I ran a defrag and freed up space on my computer hoping to fix this problem.

I love Firefox, but right now I am running Chrome becuase it is still working and so is IE so I know it is not a computer issue.

I hope this gets solved soon, I would love to get my Firefox up and running again. I can tell I am not the only person with this issue by looking at the forums.

The Java plugin does not work on my Firefox v14.0.1 after I did download and installed the update. I visited www.java.com/en/ and click the link 'Do I have Java?', then click on the button called 'Verify Java Version' after 5 minutes the blue circle is still spinning. After 30 minutes nothing else happen. And the ´Error. Click for details´ message is shown. I tried Opera v12 and Safari v5 too. Using Vista and Win 7 with Firefox v 14 and Java 7. Also ´https://www.mozilla.org/nl/plugincheck/´ says that my Adobe Acrobat v10.1.0 is old, but the update does nothing and same message appears. Security levels on minimal, disable will cost my internet connection.

Hi Friends, I was just updated to 14.0.1 a day or 2 ago. It seems the icons on my navigation toolbar, which used to be black, have been changed to white w/black border.

What annoys me most of all, is why in the world do you waste your time on things like that.

But the most immediate problem is that some of the icons that I have on that navigation toolbar, cannot be seen against the Persona that I use. Apparently they use some transparency. The ones that are solid white, I can still see, but those with apparently a little transparency seem to have disappeared (except on mouseover, I do see a white square).

So my question is, do I have any control over those icons? Or will my only solution be to change the persona to a darker background?

Thanks for your help :-)

         Du har instruerat Firefox att ansluta

till lastpass.com på ett säkert sätt, men det går inte att bekräfta att anslutningen verkligen är säker.

Since Firefox 14 came out on OSX I've been really annoyed by the Lion full screen. I don't exactly hate it but the problem is that the toolbars (awesome bar, bookmark bar etc.) no longer auto hide when in full screen on OSX Lion. Please tell me there is a fix on the way or some quick easy fix for this. I want my screen filled up again. So annoying when I view images.

I'm sticking with 13.0.1 until someone can offer a fix.

Thank you.

Ever since I updated to 14.0.1 I have been having problems with this. As of right now, even this website is currently being forced https. My friend is also having the exact same problem as me, so it isn't just a single problem here. (However it could be two)

Can anyone help me here? Happens on pretty much all websites, cannot put just one site.

Hi. Every time I open Firefox it stays on the homepage for two seconds, then it exits and shows the "Firefox has crashed" window. Usually, I can restart the program in Safe Mode and then it works just fine, but I can't be on Safe Mode forever! I've tried restarting my computer, resetting Firefox, searching the Support site for answers, but nothing works. My version is 14.0.1 and it's up to date.

This is getting really annoying, help please?

OK, I had to reinstall Firefox, and now, every time I try searching off URL bar, Bing comes as default search engine. I have read this: Bing is added to the search engines that you can use for searching via the search bar on the Navigation Toolbar. If Bing is selected then you can choose another search engine by clicking the search engines icon. Open Manage Search Engines and click "Restore defaults" is some are missing or do a search on the Mycroft site.

See also:

   Removing the Search Helper Extension and Bing Bar 

You can open the about:config page via the location bar and do a search for bing via the Filter at the top of that page. You can reset all bing related prefs via the right-click context menu to their default values.

I have removed Bing from search engines list. 5 times. Clicking "restore defaults" actually brings Bing back into list. I have modified Bing to Google via "about:config". Same difference - Bing stubbornly defaults as search engine when searching from URL bar.

Suggestions?

In addition to what I stated. I even uninstalled and install a fresh Firefox. Still being inundated with script issues. I spend more time trying to end those than I can on a website.

I left Chrome after 3 years because of the non-responsive page issues hoping that by coming back to Firefox all would be good.

My cache's are empty and I've done everything else that Firefox has suggested and still can't go to a website with this issue.
