Yesterday firefox stopped showing video from certain sites. If I go to youtube and select a video everything works. However, if I go to something like foxnews or drudge report and try to display one of their videos all I get is audio - no video. I have downloaded the latest version of Shockwave Flash and that didn't help. I also downloaded a new copy of firefox and that didn't help. Sometimes I get the message that Shockwave script has stopped working and asked to suspend it or continue it. If I continue it I still don't get any video but Firefox crashes and I have to use the Task Manager to terminate the program. Program worked on Friday and the suddenly stopped working on Saturday.

I was trying Firefox Hello. I sent the link to my friend via IM client and he joined the conversation. He was able to hear my voice but I wasn't able to hear his voice. To confirm that the problem was not on his side, I tried it with my few other friends but to no avail. What could be the reason behind this?

I've completely tested my headphones they're all working fine. I've tried other browsers too. But the same problem. Any suggested fixes?

Links in a PDF file viewed with the internal viewer in Firefox 38 do not open

Essentially the same problem as https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/982704.

Links in a PDF file viewed with the internal viewer in Firefox 38 (specifically 38.0.5) on Win 7 (64bit) do not open and are seemingly unresponsive. The PDF was created from the File+SaveAs PDF option in Microsoft Powerpoint 2010. The links are relative (e.g., test.mov, ../newdir/test.html as opposed to absolute like http://test.com/test.mov). Hovering the pointer over any of the links shows "resource://pdf.js/web/". Clicking a link results in no response.

On Internet Explorer (IE) 11, hovering the pointer over any of the links shows the expected (relative) URL. Clicking a link results in the expected URL opening.

Question 982704 noted in January of 2014, "It is already fixed in a future version of the built-in PDF Viewer...when Firefox 28 gets released in March..." Is it broken again, or is there an option which needs to be set either in Firefox or in the creating of the PDF in Powerpoint?

I just downloaded Firefox and was very careful picking a password I can remember. I verified the account using my Outlook email. However when I attempted to browse more themes following the link on the Firefox customize page it required I sign in again. But the password was rejected so I attempted to get it reset but email did not go through. I tried again, same thing Outlook only has the verification email from Firefox although it's been over a half an hour. I has no idea what's wrong, my Outlook email has never taken long to receive an email. I also don't understand how the written down and carefully put in password is rejected. What should I do? I can't delete Firefox and start over because I can't sign in although I never signed out. Thank you.

I had my firefox display my bookmark bar under the url bar. Its set to show, but none of the bookmarks are showing up anymore. It's just an empty bar. Even in safe mode it's an empty bar. I used to have my frequently used url's on there, but they recently disappeared. Now I'm left with an empty bar with no use, and i was wondering if I could get it back. Below I have linked to the picture of what my status bar looks like. https://www.dropbox.com/s/609pci1oz4bwcal/Firefox%20bookmarks.PNG?dl=0 Any help would be appreciated

IThank you in advance for any help provided.

Typing within my gmail has been painfully slow for the last few days, with it sometimes taking up to 10 seconds for what has been typed to appear. Initially I thought it maybe a virus affecting the whole computer, however having checked typind speed in Word documents, then my Gmail on Chrome it would seem this issue is localised to just when I use my gmail within Firefox. The typind speed of this message is perfectly fine!!!

I would welcome any advice on how to fix this, as Gmail is a huge part of my life and Firefox is very much my preferred browser.

Phil.

Since yesterday, my browser has been running so slow and saying - 'not responding' - when I have more than 4 browser windows open, that I keep having to restart it. I've never had this problem before - I can usually have about 10 browser windows open and active, and see no serious drop in performance. The problem was worst when I had gmail open - the browser hated it. But that wasn't the only time it has stopped working - I was using BBC6 music a couple of minutes ago, and that kept on crackling in and out before the browser had to be restarted - again.

Can you suggest any fixes?
