"Firefox support is a relatively recent addition to Adobe Reader, since version 10.1.4. Therefore, even though you may have had Adobe Reader installed for a long time, you may need to install a new version to gain the Firefox support. You may also find that you need to enable the Adobe add-on within Firefox. To enable the Adobe add-on in Firefox, select Tools->Add-ons->Plugins, then in plug-ins list, find the item beginning Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in and click the Enable button."

When I go to Firefox, select Tools->Add-ons->Plugins, this plugin is not there. So, where can I get it?

I am trying to deploy Firefox on staff machines at my work.

We are using Windows 7 on them and want to be able to have extensions available for all users on that machine.

However, after much research it seems that all the prior solutions for this problem have been restricted or removed.

There should be an easy way to have addOns installed for all users. Its not feasable to make every single user install every single addOn one by one.

Yesterday all of a sudden my webpages and UI appeared to be magnified. While I can zoom out on websites, I cannot find any option to adjust the size of the UI.

I noticed that Firefox 22 (which I am running) has a new feature: "Windows: Firefox now follows display scaling options to render text larger on high-res displays". Is it possible to adjust how Firefox responds to the display scaling options perhaps?

All of a sudden (and around the last update, if memory serves, but I'm not entirely sure it exactly coincides with that) my bookmarks toolbar no longer shows any bookmarks. Instead there is a "Bookmarks" button (icon: white star on gray rectangle background) on the left hand side of the bookmarks toolbar. When I click that button, a menu opens in which all my bookmarks are present as usual, including a "Bookmarks Toolbar" folder with the usual bookmarks still in it. In other words, the organization of my bookmarks is unchanged and they're all still there, but the bookmarks toolbar no longer shows the bookmarks in the "Bookmarks Toolbar" folder in my bookmarks menu.

Trying to drag bookmarks back onto the bookmarks folder doesn't work either.

Suggestions, anyone?

When I visit this site:http://www.apolloarchive.com/apollo_gallery.html I can no longer see the image thumbnails when I click on the image IDs. I contacted the site owner, and he said it worked for FF on his computer, but I'm afraid my javascript isn't working here. I did everything, cleared the cookies, ran Safe Mode, checked options- though i may have goofed. And I'm almost sure javascript is enabled here. I have Win XP. I don't want to check another browser; if the problem is here than it needs fixing. I'm waiting more word from the site owner, but I tried everything he suggested. So what do I do? Do I download another Javascript?

This is a strange problem that I have only encountered on a few sites; it is consistently happening on a specific game website (quakelive.com).

Anyway, I have my password for my account saved. When I log in, though, the Firefox does not auto-fill the login or password fields. If I enter the login, it still does not auto-fill the password field. I know that Firefox knows the password, because if I enter the wrong one (as I frequently do), I get a pop-up with something like "Would you like to update the saved password on...?" Well, no, Mr. Firefox, I wouldn't like to update it, but I *would* like you to fill it in if you know it (which you do).

I've checked and double-checked all of the basics in the other articles; I am fairly confident that all of my password and security settings are correct. I rarely have problems on other sites, though I do recall it happening elsewhere before (quakelive seems to be the primary culprit here, and it may be a specific issue with that site). I can always go into the password manager and find it, but that sort of defeats the purpose.

Any ideas?

When I download a file, I used to get an option to "save as", instead of just save. If I download a file I like to immediately download it into the appropriate folder on my desktop (not just one folder.) Instead I have to download it, go into the downloads folder and move it. I do a lot of downloading for work and this is just an extra step that I find so annoying. Is there a way to change this, or and "add on" feature to get "save as" as an option? I get this option on Internet Explorer, but I do not like using IE :(

Despite clearing history, setting remember history to never, etc., still Firefox remembers my history in the tabs when I open a new tab. It shows certain sites. This is clearly in direct opposition to the clear history settings I have obviously selected, violating my privacy.

Aside from the cognitive dissonance of a browser that is supposed to be secure being completely insecure, and people not having stopped using it entirely, I assume either someone knows how to turn off tab history, or people are naively using Firefox thinking it is a secure browser.

If the first is the case, and people do know how to turn off tab history, I would like a clear explanation of how to do that, something not only a technical geek could understand.

Flash plugin detected but not working (Firefox 22 on Linux)

Hi all,

I can't get the flash plugin to work. It's installed, detected in about:plugins, but when I visit adobes's test page at http://www.adobe.com/fr/shockwave/welcome/ , I just get the usual " you need a plugin to view this content" thing.

This happenned since I migrated from Mageia 1 to Mageia 2, and still doesn't work on Mageia 3, which uses Firefox 17 ESR. I then downloaded and installed Firefox 22 directly from Mozilla, still with no luck. I've reset my profile, tried to use an empty profile, tried disabling all add-ons, still no luck.

about:plugins displays this:

   File : libflashplayer.so
   Path : /opt/firefox/browser/plugins/libflashplayer.so
   Version : 11,2,202,297
   State : Enabled
   Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202

This is the most up-to-date flash version available from Adobe.

Another thing is that this machine is a 32 bits install, on an Athlon XP 3000+ with a Radeon X1650 graphics card. Surprisingly, on another machine, using the same distro but with a 64 bits install, Flash works well.

I'm out of ideas now, so any hint would be welcome. Thank you.

My OS is Vista Home Premium. I downloaded it when I was installing another program. I have tried to uninstall it, but it isn't even listed in the list of programs in the Control Panel. It is in Program Files. I have tried to delete the Program File. It will not delete. I have even tried to delete the Folders within the Program File but, that will not work either. I use Norton 360.

I also updated to Firefox 22 on the same day. I don't know if that is complicating the problem or not. I waited for the Norton fix before updating.

My main problem is that ever since I updated Firefox and installed McAfee ( which I did on the same day) everytime I try to go to a website or open a new window , I get the message "not responding". Eventually it will complete the task but it takes a really long time. Can anyone help me to first of all to get rid of McAfee, to see if that helps resolve my "not responding" problem.

Thanks, Karla
