Within the last few days, I have no been able to load any video at all from any site. The video first appears as a black box, then changes to a white box as if nothing is even there, and my cursor continually freaks out.

I have made a video of the issue using a screen capture program- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bQ03hbty-s

I have tried the following things with no results- Run FireFox in Safe Mode Disable all addons / extensions / themes. Load FireFox in different profiles Disable hardware acceleration Uninstall / Reinstall Firefox Virus/Malware/Spyware Scans Updated Flash / Java

I can load videos in all of my browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Opera), with no issue at all. This is heartbreaking, because I am staunch supporter and defender of Mozilla Firefox and have been a user since 2.0, and this is the first major issue I've had.

All my drop-down menus are distorted from this change, both my browser's menus and menus on websites. The distortion is so bad that I cannot read the menu or choose a selection on the menu without moving my cursor around, and sometimes not even then. The menu items appear extremely small or gigantic and the images are distorted too.

I've re-installed FF beta 26.0 just to see if that made a difference, but it didn't. I've taken screenshots of the problem and loaded then into my Goggle photo at https://plus.google.com/photos/105852729254799413734/albums/5941369764239347457?authkey=CNXwwpfOrZ-gAQ

I am considering a new ISP who charges based on GB's downloaded and uploaded monthly. The base rate is for 25GB with another rate for 50GB and a third rate for unlimited GB's. Frankly I have no idea how many GB's I download and upload monthly. I wonder if there is an add-on that will keep track of bytes uploaded and downloaded in Firefox and Thunderbird and I can reset to zero at month's end. Anyone know of such a program? Thanks...

Already corresponding with Trusteer, but for your info:

Reinstalled Trusteer, yes, had re-started pc and still no difference. NB trusteer says it is running and address bar icon is set to visible.

Wonder which version of FF I should use now? Think I`d just updated it (at the suggestion of a driver tool that said my version of FF was out-of-date).

Thanks, "Lozenge"

I run Windows 7, with Firefox 26 (beta) loaded. Attempted to play 'Bones' video on Fox homepage, and needed Adobe Flash Player (AFP). Downloaded and ran/uninstalled AFP multiple times; each time it shows up on my hard drive, but it does not show up on my Firefox ad-ons list? If I then attempt to play a video on Fox, it alerts me that AFP is not installed? I am frustrated - I read all the posts about this issue, and either something is 'odd' and I've missed it, or I'm not understanding the corrections offered. I had no issues at all with Firefox until these last couple of updates? I have not been asked to load AFP until now - has the Fox network changed their video player requirement? I definitely remember watching videos on their webpage months ago... Would uninstalling and installing a fresh copy of Firefox help? I'm grasping at straws here... Thanks

I'm running Firefox 26 and am trying to install Flash version 11.9.900.152. I keep getting this Error: Application currently in use and it fails to complete the install.

I went to Adobe and found uninstall instructions and in the process of trying to uninstall Flash, I'm trying to delete all the files in the c:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash folder. I can get them all except: NPSWF32_11_9_900_152.dll, which produces the following error: the file is open in plugin container for Firefox

How do I get this stopped so that I can update to the latest version of Flash? This is so darned frustrating.

I opened a page in Firefox (v26), and was redirected to http://www.update-browser.org/Firefox/ that said Firefox needed updating. This seems suspicious.

When I opened a page in my just updated Firefox (v26), I was redirected to another page (http://www.update-browser.org/Firefox/) which told me that my version was out-of-date and provided a link to update the program. Since Firefox is set to automatically update on its own and had just done so moments before, this struck me as suspicious and possibly a phishing attempt. Can you confirm that it is not, and that the site is a legitimate updating site.

Thanks
