I have the Spanish version and do not function well making any changes in firefox because the browser language is in Spanish. I have found a few answers on the Internet but they do not work for me. If this is not possible, how difficult is it to uninstall and reinstall an English version? I am in Costa Rica.

You Tube and other sites are not playing video on Firefox with Adobe Flash after latest update for both. Adobe Flash is working on other sites but not You tube and those sites that may have embedded You Tube videos, I'm not sure.

Adobe Flash does not crash and no error message is showing. All that shows is a dark screen for the Flash video. Right clicking the screen shows only a non-clickable 'Movie not loaded' and the clickable link to the Adobe home page.

I have spent an hour trying things as suggested for past problems similar to this but none have helped.

I have sent sad face letting you know what I think of the latest update because of this which says pretty much the same thing as I have said here.

I have no further info but if I had some input and queries form you I might be able to provide more.

None of the question related, solved my problem, first, I don't use windows; second, questions related are from years ago, nad seems outadted, because much of that questions suggest to change the values of network.protocol-handler.external.magnet, but in Iceweasel 29 I can't find anything similar., should I create it? what kind of value is, boolean, string...? I don't have it some clear, or at least in your support is not clear at all.

And this link which is recommended in some relates questions : http://kb.mozillazine.org/Register_protocol is broken, at least to me is broken.

so... how may open magnet links in this disspaointing browser?. I don't want to use Chrome/Chromium because they're worse.

I'm using Linux.

I have already seen some suggested solutions to the problem of this extremely annoying Yahoo DNS error solutions page, but they involve going to the add-ons page of firefox and disabling various add-ons. The issue is that even when I try to go to the add-ons page I get immediately redirected to the Yahoo DNS solutions page again.

I have cleared my browser history and cache, hoping it would help, but nothing. Extremely annoying as I never installed anything - it simply started after a Firefox upgrade.

Any help much appreciated.

after updating to firefox 29 and then 29.0.1, the cpu usage that firefox are using are insane,

it ranges between 50%-100% cpu usage.

and it happens even on normal non flash tab,

besides even if the site is using flash, i am using flash block and adblock plus,

so anykind of flash material wont play or uses cpu.

please fix this ASAP, because firefox has now gone from useable to resource hog,

oh and i don't like the new look, because firefox has become more similar to chrome on User interface,

and i don't use chrome, because i don't like the UI, and now firefox tried to be chrome twin ?

i think that's all, thanks in advance.

edit : fixed some typo

I would like to downgrade to the previous version which was simpler and more intuitive. The bookmarks system is terrible (like the expanding programs menu in Windows 95 when the start button is pressed) It's possible to pin the window to the side bar but when you click on "history", it floats back up again and has to be re-pinned. Also I had nice big toolbar buttons with text. It doesn't seem to be possible to have these in this version. The backwards and forwards toolbuttons have gone, and a create bookmark button is stuck to the bookmarks button. It doesn't seem to be possible either to move tabs below the menu.

I run multiple tab that monitor various tools. These pages refresh themselves. The pages have to wait for each other to finish before they can start.

In version 28 this was fine. The page would just wait indefinitely and kick in when a previous page finished doing its thing.

Now in version 29 it returns with a "The connection has timed out" message after some minutes.

I have adjusted

network.http.connection-timeout network.http.pipelining.read-timeout

to high values but problem is still occurring. Any thoughts on how I can return the behavior to FF28?

Sorry guys, i am disgusted with this upgrade. 29 does not seem like a good ui update at all. The menu bar looks really bad and so does the tab. Furthermore this does not solve my other tab issue i have either in another question i have asked.

How can i revert back to my last version with all my tabs/windows/history restored? I will do a system restore if i have to and then cancel all automatic updates. I honestly dont care if it gives me a bigger security risk.

How can I make Firefox use another installed Java runtime version?

For development purposes I have several Java runtime versions on my Windows 7 64 bit machine. I try to keep the number of installed JDKs and JREs to a minimum and I want Firefox to use JRE 1.7.0_21 (32 bit) since this came with a JDK version I am forced to use for another application.

Firefox however uses JRE 1.6.0_31, and correctly reports this as insecure. It offers me the option to upgrade, but I do not want to download and install another JRE since I already have said JRE 1.7.0_21 installed. I would highly prefer to just be able to point Firefox to that JRE. I don't see an option to select another installed JRE however.

I have already attempted to manually modify the pluginreg.dat file (I know, it says Do not edit...) by changing the JRE 1.6 entries to JRE 1.7, but upon restart my edits were overwritten and the old JRE was back. As a result I cannot view certain web sites (also corporate/internal) without having to switch to lesser browsers.

Please let me know how I can make Firefox use the already installed JRE 1.7.

When the Print... dialogue comes up in Firefox, it shows that it will print to PaperPort. My system default printer is a Lexmark network printer. I checked my computer's Devices and Printers, and the Lexmark is checked as the default. Firefox is the only application that prints to PaperPort as a default and only since a recent update to Firefox 29.0.1. I would like the Lexmark to be the default printer for Firefox, as it is for all my other applications. It is annoying to have to manually select the correct printer each time I want to print.

Here's the full message:


This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to mail.google.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

Then there's a button for "Get me out of here!"

Technical Details

mail.google.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because it was issued by an invalid CA certificate. (Error code: sec_error_inadequate_key_usage)


I am using Windows 8.1 and I have Kaspersky Pure 3.0 for internet security.

I am using Firefox version 29.0

Thanks!

After updating to Firefox 27 all webpages take a few dozen seconds to several minutes to load. When loading a webpage Firefox's status displays "connecting" and the CPU gets maxed out with 95 to 100% of its cycles taking by Firefox.

The computer is older so it is a little slow but Internet Explorer 8 has no trouble opening the webpages and neither do other computers on the LAN so it is not a network issue. I have tried restarting Firefox, disabling add-ons, deleting add-ons, disabling hardware acceleration, restarting the computer, and reinstalling Firefox after wiping every trace of it and its user data from the hard drive and registry.

CPU: AMD Athlon 2800+ 2.08GHz RAM: 1GB OS: Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 32bit
