You Tube seems to be the only site affected. However i was able to download Wednesday with no problem. DH works normally, I select a download option, it starts and finishes quickly with a 0 mb result. I tried changing the download location, the name and/or extension of the file, and still the same thing.

This add-on extension "Disconnect", after upgrading to Firefox 29 now displays only a tiny drop down box when clicked vs the full drop down menu. Before the upgrade it worked fine. It does this whether adding it to the tool icons in the upper right of the window (left of the new Firefox dropdown menu) or whether adding it to the Firefox menu itself as an additional icon. The extension appears to work in terms of blocking adds/tracking, as before, just can't see what is in the drop down menu. Already tried disabling and re-enabling, no change.

I downloaded the AVG toolbar and search engine. My computer says it installed - only it does not appear when I open Firefox. For what is it worth, when I downloaded it on my Admin acct (same computer) it worked fine, but didn't transfer to my standard acct.

Out of suddenly, all of my add-ons expect Adblock Plus disabled and I can't enable them, and I didn't change nothing on my laptop at that time. I tried to do Troubleshooting Information, restart my laptop, uninstall and install Mozilla twice, by deleting even all files about Mozilla, but nothing worked. I even tried to do a system restore, but it don't worked because it has a problem in a file! Useful info: When I install again the Mozilla and I install again the add-ons, they are enable and they are working fine, but when I close the browser and open it again, the add-ons are disabled again... And I don't know if that means something, but I have also problem to do the Windows Updates the last week, it can't complete. I have Windows 7 x64 and the lasted edition of Mozilla Firefox. Any ideas?

P.S. English isn't my first language, so sorry if I did any mistakes.

I am creating a dual boot PC with Win XP and Win 7. I have Firefox on my XP side with lots of plugins. Is there a way to load all those plugins from my XP to my 7 without having to reload all of them? Are they all stored in a folder somewhere that I can just copy over?

When the downloadhelper icon animates, I click on it as usual if I want to capture. The button operates normally, displays the video name and I click quick download. Nothing downloads, the library says no downloads for this session. However there is an icon in my download folder, but nothing plays -- there is no download. Everything works fine, except there is no download. Version 36?

Up until a few days ago I was using download helper to download various files to my PC. Yesterday I noticed it wasn't working. The file I want to download shows up in the log, I click on it, a Windows Explorer window pops up with the file name. I click on save as usual, the pop up closes and then nothing happens. No files are downloading. I don't even get a 0 byte file.

Anybody else have this problem and if so, is there a solution?

Thank you, ~k

It works on most videos but there are several that won't download properly. Whenever I try it says "0 bytes" and the video won't play with Media Player, Realplayer, or any other program. Does anyone know how to fix this or another Firefox addon for me to try? I also tried downloading the videos with Realplayer's download too but that won't work either.

Hi. I made a dumb mistake and installed an add-on or extension (not sure which) that I was hoping would allow me to view YouTube videos in full-screen. Unfortunately I can't recall the name of the add-on/extension.

The problem is, now every time I open Firefox it opens in "full screen" and NOTHING (including F11) will allow me to access the taskbar, the address bar, or any of the other Firefox controls. I can't do anything at all but view the home page in full-screen! The only option I have is to hit control-alt-delete and close Firefox.

I tried uninstalling and re-installing Firefox and this didn't solve the problem. Please help. Thank you!

P.S. I'm writing this in Internet Explorer since I currently can't use Firefox.
