As a network administrator, it would be very beneficial if Firefox and updates could be installed using AD Group Policy. Our network policy does not allow users to install software without administrative involvement and with Firefox being available only in .exe format I have to visit each workstation for every update...very tedious. Is your product available in .msi form?

I am trying to watch a missed TV episode. I get a "message" indicating that I have to disable Adblock Plus. Directions given: In right hand corner of Firefox, click on the ABP icon, and uncheck "Enable Adblock Plus". However, there is NO such icon on Firefox' toolbar. I went to your help site; FAQ; checked out forums, etc. You would think "disable Adblock Plus" would be pretty simple, but I guess it's not.

For some reason, when I do a search from the address bar, I'm sent to Bing instead of Google. I had not installed anything beforehand, it just started happening on its own. I tried to fix this using the about:config and changing keyword.url, but it doesn't work.

Since a couple of days, youtube videos stopped working - they'd display the "An error occurred. Try again later" message on Firefox, whereas on Opera they work just fine. I tried to totally clean the cache, and they started working again. Not sure why, but cleaning the cache also set the cookie button plug-in to refuse YouTube cookies, so YouTube kept asking me which language I'd wish to set as the default one; so I re-enabled cookies and set the default language, and as soon as I did this, videos stopped working again. I tried to re-install Firefox (over the previous installation, no way to uninstall it via the control panel), same thing. Videos are working as long as YouTube cookies are rejected. Suggestions?

Can't use IE as I am not using windows. Help!

My mouse wheel won't scroll in Firefox, but it works for every other program (including IE, don't make me go back to that!). I have downloaded the latest driver for my mouse and also tried changing the config in "mousewheel.withnokey". I never had this problem then suddenly it just happened, but only in Firefox. Any ideas?

Firefox "knows" about a number of plugins. By what means can a plugin become known to Firefox and have automated updating?

I could understand (not like) the fact that Microsoft might not be eager to make their products any easier to use with Firefox. But, I would think that Google and Real Networks would.
