Without updating any plugins, how do I prevent, remove or disable the requirement to "Click to Activate Plugins?"

I want to reverse, undo, prevent, disable or even remove the following (see link below), WITHOUT having to change versions, or update actual plugins:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/why-do-i-have-click-activate-plugins

I repeat, WITHOUT having to change my Firefox version, change the plugin version, or UPDATE versions on either.

I want Firefox to quit bugging me about having to ACTIVATE a DEACTIVATED plugin.

I DO NOT want to UPDATE VERSIONS of plugins or the browser and I DO NOT want to have to "click to activate plugins."

It seems that Firefox collaborates with plugins to determine if the vendor has put out a new update. If there is a new update, Firefox inconveniences me.

I had Java 7 update 10, which has the 0-day exploit. Oracle released Java 7 update 11. I installed that and uninstalled Java 7 update 10. Now I can't get Firefox to recognize Java. It tells me that Java needs to be installed, but when I try to install the plug in (Java has been installed twice now), it fails. Now I have no Java.

Hi Folks,

I have a quite unusual issue with Nightly build 15.0a1 (x64) on Windows x64. I can not place the button to cancel loading a webpage right beside the reload page button - everywhere else it is possible to place it, but not at this specific location. If I do so, it becomes visible in the customize wizard but not in normal view. In normal view it is only visible when placed on other locations.

Firefox will NOT start, deleting and reinstalling will start as last step but once Firefox is closed it will NOT restart.

Both browsers (Firefox 21 & IE) installed on my 64-bit Widows XP desktop refuse to start either from clicking the desktop icon, the start bar menu, or the executables themselves. What does happen is that all icons disappear from the screen for some 15-30 seconds, then the icons are returned to the screen, and the last informative message displayed from the system tray at start up is repeated.

Deleting Firefox and reinstalling will start the browser as the last step, but when the new copy is closed it will not start. Also just rerunning the installation download without deleting Firefox will "Upgrade" and start as a last step but when the new copy is closed it can not be restarted. Running restore on the new copy has on apparent effect on the ultimate inability to restart after closing.

I only tried the IE browser after being unable to start Firefox (its ordinarily only used by the MS update procedure) and have not investigated either reinstalling or repairing it.

Greetings, I've create two separate Firefox configurations. When I open each one individually, they work perfectly. However, when one is open and then I open the other, it becomes a mirror of the configuration that is already open. Is there a setting or switch to prevent this?

How do I make a duplicate tab I tried all the suggestions like holding ctrl key while clicking reload and dragging nothing seems to work, there should be an easy way on right click menu, this is really lame for a top notch browser. Take a hint from chrome just right click on tab and click duplicate was that toooo hard for the code writer?

Mozilla just updated to version 29.0 beta. My browser was set up as following:

File, Edit, View etc are first; then there is home button and address bar; then bookmark toolbar; and finally tabs.

Now tabs are on top of address bar and I can't move it down. I tried going about:config with browser.tabs.on Top but it just does not work at all.

I use default skin for Firefox and I don't have any visual add ons.
