I am unable to access my GlobeInvestor Streaming Quotes (http://finserv.globeinvestor.com/fcclient8/mainframe.htm) via GlobeInvestorGold.com. When I click on the "Tracker" link on the GlobeInvestor Gold website to access my streaming quotes, I get a pop up with an error stating:

Name: fccapp Location: http://finserv.globeinvestor.com Your security settings have blocked an untrusted application from running.

I have restarted Firefox numerous times. I have reset Firefox. I have re-installed Java a few times and I have also updated all plugins. I am running Firefox on my MacBook Pro. If you could provide any assistance, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much in advance.

How to shut-off or disable "plugin-container.exe"

I'm running XP on a lap-top that originally had Vista that didn't work as well and Firefox 26.0, up-to date. I have "Add-Ons" of; Adblock Plus 2.4.1, Advanced System Care 1.0 and NoScript 2.6.8.12

Ever since updating to 26.0 that damnable "plug-in container.exe" has been slowing down my web surfing and I'm constantly ending the process in task Manager. I want to disable or remove it completely with easy-to-read instructions - Not some of the 5-page "mumbo-jumbo" I've been reading for other "solutions". It has slowed me down and irritated me to the point of considering returning to I-E.

It has to go or I'm going.

I just installed a fresh windows xp on my pc and I'm using the latest FF 26.0,but from the start i cant get to some pages,like in youtube,some pages doesnt come up and i get the "This connection is untrusted" page,in the technical details it says "youtube.com uses an invalid security certificate,the certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain is provided.(Error code:sec_error_unknown_issuer). also when i open FF add-ons manager tab Extensions,Appearance,Plugins and Services are ok but the Get Add-ons tab is not working,i get the same page as i stated above with the same technical details (instead of youtube.com it's services.addons.mozilla.org) and same error. I've tried all solutions on the web and on this forum like reset FF, adjust time & date, using the "Skip cert error" add-on, deleting the cert8.db file, and so on - none of them helped me with this problem. If it helps i use Avast! antivirus and window firewall,no other software on that pc. I'm pretty clueless about what else i can do,any suggestion that might help? Thanks!

Hi Friends,

I recently was given permission to edit a website (made with django). When I finished editing, and saved the new edits, I got the following error from Ff:

"The page isn't redirecting properly. Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies"

I have all cookies allowed for this site. And I don't know what else to do. I've contacted the admin for the site, and he says there is no redirect that he knows of. And I've looked at the page source and don't see any redirect in the code.

Note that the edits I made were successfully saved. Also, I have no idea where it might have been redirecting me to or through, since it was my first time doing this. But again, the admin says there are no redirects.

Can you all give me some info about this error message, that will help me to track down the problem?

Thank you very much.

PS -- And please don't reply by posting search results on the topic title. I've already done that and didn't find an answer. Please reply only if you know something about this. Thanks  :-)

I have my startup settings set to Open my windows and tabs from last time. If I leave Firefox with a single New Tab page, the next time I start it up my home page shows. New windows show the homepage too. I want my homepage to remain as it is. I have had it set like this before and had no trouble. Is it always like this? Thanks.

Firefox Menu Bar

I am new to Linux but have been using Firefox for Windows for almost ten years. I now want to use Firefox Desktop, Version 26 (I think) in Linux (Ubuntu).

I cannot get the Menu Bar (File, Edit, Help, etc.) to show. In Firefox support, in the section “Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars”, it states: “Most toolbars can be shown or hidden depending on your needs. To show or hide a toolbar, right-click on an empty section of the Tab Strip and check or uncheck it in the pop-up menu. Menu Bar: This toolbar at the top of the Firefox window contains the browser menus (File, Edit, Help, etc.). Hiding the Menu Bar will make the Firefox button appear which contains a simplified menu.”

When I right-click on an empty section of the Tab Strip, all I get is options for the Navigation Toolbar, the Bookmarks Toolbar, and the Add-on Bar; no Menu Bar option. Also, since my Menu Bar is “hidden,” I can't find the Firefox button which contains a simplified menu. What does the Firefox button look like?

When I go to support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox and try to download Firefox 26 I'm told that "Congrats! You’re using the latest version of Firefox."

Since I presume my Linux distribution's packaged version of Firefox can be updated only when an updated package is released, I checked for distro updates and there were none at all. Do I have to wait for a Linux update?

I certainly will appreciate any help.

Adobe Flash Player works well in Internet Explorer but I cannot download & install it in FireFox. I always get the error message "An error has occurred in the script on this page.

Yes/No" Selecting either yes or no makes no difference and the error never changes. Closing the error results in a message from Adobe stating that it was unable to install the program. Their download version is now 12.0. Adobe Reader 10 downloaded & installed fine but Flash Player just won't do it.

This started just about a month or so ago. Almost every website I visit Firefox either lags or outright stalls, giving me the (unresponsive) notice at the top or unresponsive script error messages.

I have tried every suggestion I could find in the help, including "Firefox uses too much resources", "Firefox hangs or is unresponsive", and "Unresponsive script - how to fix". I have cleared all history, cookies and cache, reset Firefox, reinstalled, everything I can. I disabled all my extensions and add-ons one by one to see if they impacted, I made sure everything including Firefox is up to date. Nothing has changed the behavior.

Any help here would be appreciated.
