The Real Player Browser Download Record Plugin 15.0.1 in Firefox 10 stopped appearing on all videos. It was working from 1/31 to 2/3 and now doesn't show at all. A clean reinstall of Real Player 15 Plus doesn't fix this. OS is Windows 7 Home Premium. As usual after a F.F. upgrade, the download button works on Internet Explorer. Now it's the weekend and Real's Developers aren't even working! The Developers of both companies need to coordinate this once and for all. Norton started doing this with Mozilla at my suggestion for the Norton Tool Bar and there no longer is any delay in compatibility. Please contact Real Player tech support to complain. Their Case Manager told me that the three week compatibility delay with Real Player 14 last year would never happen again. I wouldn't bet on it.

  Update Note: This thread is now also about "Adobe Flash 11.3 doesn't load video content"  because people having that problem started posting here.

I have had enough of Firefox crashing. I do not mind having a slightly slower browser, I do mind it crashing.

I would like to know a SIMPLE way to stop automatic updates. I am actually using a Dutch version of Firefox, which in their attempt to make things easier for us has a different layout :-(

I am now extremely unhappy with Firefox. Since the upgrade before last it has done nothing but crash. If it is not possible this time to switch out the automatic updates - so that I can update to the previous version that (hopefully) no longer crashes, then I shall simply move to Chrome. Sorry.

I love Firefox but of late the fastest Firefox they have is 3.6.28 which the fools have decided to discontinue upgrading! I started with Firefox 12, slow/crash. 11, ditto, 10.2, slow, 9 back to 4, slow as crap/crash crash crash! Looks like 3.6.28 will be it for me and live with the crashes. If addons are the culprit, Firefox should test 'em and ban the incompatible ones. Dunno why I'm asking again because unless I can talk to the makers of Foxy I'll get no concrete answers anyway. Foxy and Mozilla are the only browsers on the web that do not have email addresses for troubleshooting problems! Wish I could find a better browser than Foxy! Used to love it but now it's just plain BS! I depend on Henrietta for my livelihood (survey work, web ads surfing &c) and I need a reliable browser. Looks like Foxy ain't it and IE i even worse! Opera's great only incompatible with most of the sites I need to use! Any suggestions at all? Thanks I hope- keimanzero Scion of Anime of PA. Oh a word to the wise- if you use Web of Trust get rid of it! You'll need a special uninstall tool but WOT blocks every single site as unsafe and that includes this one and Firefox!

Something very annoying and very surprising has occurred: over 3 months worth of browsing history has disappeared. Kind of. I'll start from the beginning. At about 10 o'clock Monday evening, I finished my day's worth of browsing and went to bed. Right before I closed Firefox, however, I checked my history to see how much I'd done that day. There was a lot, more than average for me; same thing with Sunday. So I leave the computer for the day, knowing that even though my history was steadily being deleted as I viewed more pages, as it was set to, it was all safe and there to be backed up when necessary. However, upon logging in at around 4 o'clock the next day (Tuesday) I noticed something peculiar: my location bar wasn't showing anything when I typed things in. Apart from the homepages for Google, Facebook, Youtube, etc., it would not take anything else. I typed in letters, words, and links, and nothing showed up. I pulled up my history, and saw that everything seemed to be in order; "December" was still available, as was January and this month. It was all there as far as I could see. I went away for about 4 hours as my dad came in to fix the faltering video card. Upon returning at 8 o'clock, I tried the location bar again, and still nothing. This time when I checked my history, I actually clicked on the months. What I saw shocked me. Today's history was still complete, obviously, as I hadn't done much to begin with. Clicking on Yesterday, however, I was very surprised to discover that it wasn't complete; over half was missing. Worried, I clicked on Last 7 days; then This month; then January and December. Staring at the screen, I simply couldn't believe that pretty much all my history had just vanished, and I hadn't even done anything. But then I realized something. The history was NOT gone, just missing (if that makes any sense). I went back to the location bar, and tried more letters and words; this time, I got some results. Checking to see if they were in my history, I found they weren't. Surprised at this, I went further and looked up a news article I read back in December, which no longer showed up in the history or location bar. Looking back into the history, I found that, as I suspected, it registered in the history in December as well as now. Another thing that strikes me as weird, is that, in both December and January, the only bits of history that show up are pages that I've revisited today. Because of this, there is no feasible way that these sections could have existed unless I didn't visit these pages again. But if that's true, then how were those sections still there? Today, I tried more pages, and again they pop up in their proper places despite not appearing before in the history. Various websites also pop up with different letters now in the location bar, despite the fact that if they were deleted they shouldn't be able to. I have read up on the places.sqlite file, which in my case, according to my computer, was created in February 2007. If my suspicions are correct, if I'm able to open that, I should be able to recover the history... right? Sorry for rambling, but this is very important to me in that the lengthy history assisted me in daily browsing because I was able to get to videos and links just by typing in a letter or a word. I have not deleted anything yet, just in case anything can be recovered. Or, even if recovery is impossible, if it's possible to VIEW the history, i.e. in a list of websites, I would be able to take them out and save them elsewhere and backup/add back at my leisure. I hope someone can help.

I'm having this problem with Firefox, I can't load up pages, watch videos, save images or anything else properly. It always hangs for some seconds, sometimes getting the "not responding" added to the window name.

I already tried everything I found on the support pages: cleared cookies, tried safe mode, tried with a new profile, disabled plugins, reinstalled Firefox, disabled hardware acceleration, resetted settings, cleared sessionrestore, scanned for viruses, checked the firewall, cleared download list, checked the hard disk for errors (got none), and other stuff I forgot. Results? None. It's all the same.

If I try using Internet Explorer, on the other hand, I get no hangs at all, so I don't think it's a hardware problem.

What else is left for me to try? Please, these hangs are getting on my nerves.

(and sorry for the troubleshooting information being in Portuguese, I don't know how to change it to english without translating it myself)

I have a problem with youtube and other video websites:

Everything is up to date (flash, FF, my plug ins..) but i keep getting freezes when the video loads. I can hear sound but i can only see the first frame of the video.

I've reinstalled flash/firefox or tried updating them again for about 4 times now and my cookies/cache has also been errased which i usually don't do. If i enter FF's safe mode it also freezes.

I hope someone could help out, i've searched for answer on google before and tried everything i saw but it didn't helped.

New windows installation on another with the same version of ff (10.0.2). Clicking local .pls files in this machine gives option to launch VLC media player but on other computer just text appears.

The extension appears in the applications tab after clicking tools and options on this computer, but the list is far shorter on the other machine and does not include this extension. Is this rectified by installing a plugin? If so which one?

Was having script errors using IE8. SmugMug recommended I try Firefox. The script errors have stopped, but is very slow to respond to clicks compared to IE8.

On a screen that has pick lists. In IE8 they open fully imediatley. But in Firefox the response is very slow and the pick lists open almost in a jerky fashion.

Also when starting Firefox for the first time I was offered and accepted the option to import IE's bookmarks and such. I let it run for 20 min. then a script error dialog box came up:

Warning: Unresponsive script A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete. Script:resource:///components/nsPlacesExpiration.js:632

I elected to Stop it. It importing continued until Firefox came up. But guess what; no IE Bookmarks were imported. I have a barebones, no addons Firefox running. And like I said, it is very, very slow.
