Running Firefox on Windows 10 on my laptop (I upgraded from WIndows 8.1 a month or two ago), the Flash Player plugin hasn't been working and said it was out of date and that the latest version should be installed. When I try to install it I get a message

     Adobe Flash Player
     Application initialization error.

On advice I tried uninstalling the previous version and deleting the downloaded exe file before trying again, but I still get the same error message. I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, and have tried rebooting my laptop between various stages (as suggested in a reply to a similar post), but whatever I try, I still get the same error message.

My Firefox updated today and all of a sudden the color of all background tabs is black. I really dislike this, and I am finding it extremely difficult on my eyes. I did a search of help on how to fix this, and it suggested addons. I have no problem downloading addonns, but none of them are compatible with the most recent version of Firefox. Is there a way to change the black background of tabs so they're not so annoying? Thanks.

I have just installed Firefox 57 (Quantum) 64 bit on my PC and my Laptop (both Windows 10 (1709)).

On both my machines, Quantum displays pages appallingly slowly and often freezes, when no tabs or the settings menu can be selected and nothing else produces a response.

I cannot believe that this software has been properly tested on users' machines at their homes - its deficiencies would have been blindingly obvious. Their is clearly a huge problem here.

I was so looking forward to returning to Firefox but it is a complete disaster.

Please find a fix soon or I will have to uninstall Firefox, maybe permanently. It is useless to me in its present state.

I'd like to know how to DISABLE the obnoxious Firefox Quantum auto "refresh"? This supposed "new & improved" browser will not allow the formerly used "add-ons" and other tricks to negate the automatic page refresh, which is an absolutely and totally unnecessary incessantly obnoxious and annoying feature to put it mildly. This obsession with this refreshing is a poor design & is unacceptable.

Since installation of Firefox 58 at Windows 10 I cant access to all SSL / Https pages, also not to Google.com !! Solution is already described by manual updating / deleting and import the Kaspersky certificate (better to edit and simply flag the 3 check boxes of trust setting" for AO Kaspersky Lab).

But: when edit or import the certitificate, always my Master Password for Firefox Password manager is requested. And at next Firefox start the certificate trust setting flag again is blank and previous settings are lost. If no Master Password is set, there is NO Problem. Previous Firefox version had not such problem and works well ! Thanks for your help! All other browser on my PC work well without SSl certificate error!

I noticed this very intrusive trend recently: First, I have one tab open, and on certain sites when I click on a link (or anywhere on the page, ie. input fields or just the middle of nowhere) it opens the link (or the same page) in new tab, and the previous tab where I was originally loads some ads or other unwanted stuff. (I never checked it thoroughly) Sometimes this goes on 2 or 3 times in a row before I get to my intended destination, leaving me with 2-3 tabs on the left, that do who knows what in the background. Is there any way to get rid of this problem? Thanks in advance for any solutions!

How do I totally remove Shockwave Flash 15.0.0152. Using Ubuntu 12.04, FF 32.0.3. It seems that I have Shockwave Flash 11.2.202.406 installed also...How ???. When I disable SWF 15.xxx, it disables SWF 11.xxx also.

This was happening before I installed Chrome browser. Chrome is the only way I can use my computer without throwing thing about the room.

When I enable SWF 11.xxx, and leave SWF 15.xxx disabled, SWF turns on SWF 15.xxx. Seems these two versions are screwing up everything on my computer. Can't watch videos, FF goes gray screen and stuck, for 30 seconds, then recovers, then goes gray screen, then a message comes up "bad script -- Stop?", etc.,etc.

Lately when I am using T-bird email the screen goes gray and stops working.

Please help

Thanks SB

They also have "This website does not supply Identity Information" if you hover over the fav icon (where padlock should be.

The Technical Details are in Firefox 3.0 windows 8.1 "websiteaddresss" uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)"

In IE 11 Windows 8.1 There's no error but also no padlock or security info at all

In Windows 7 there's just no padlock and the same hover over message

Google chrome in windows 8.1 shows every thing as being OK and secure and viewing security info Shows "the identity of this website has been verified by USERTrust High-Assurance Secure Server CA but it does not have public audit records."


Please Don't Suggest Installing Certificates on my system I cant have every potential visitor to these sites doing this.

So is this a Bug in firefox 30 or windows 8.1 or with the actual certificate or cert providers ? If with providers then what do they need to do in order for it to work without errors in any browser ?

Every web page with video / audio content begins to autoplay (at the vid's highest volume) approximately 5 seconds after opening the page. I could disable this in Safari and Chromium, but see no option to disable the 'Autoplay' feature in Firefox. Worse, there are no plug-ins or extensions available that will allow this to be done. If you have had success disabling this annoying 'feature' (it's not a 'bug,' right?), please advise how it was done so that I may rid myself of these annoying vids. Thanks in advance.

I am a Realtor and need to upload PDF files to the website www.dotloop.com. This site only allows uploads of PDF files. When I attempt to upload a PDF the website returns an error message that says "You Can Only Upload PDF Files". When I call the website support they say it is a problem with Firefox mis-identifying the file type to the website. I attempted to unistall firefox and reinstall (suggested by .dotloop support) but this did not fix the problem. Is there a setting or some update to fix this?
