I have searched for a way to make my new tabs, which currently open to Google, open as empty instead. I found the way described on this site, which is to go in about:config and change the URL of browser.newtab.url to about:blank. Then, I closed Firefox, made sure it was fully closed in Task Manager, and then restarted it. I then tried to open a new tab, and it still automatically opened Google on the new tab. When I rechecked the URL of browser.newtab.url, it was back to having a value of chrome://quick_start/content/index.html.

I don't know whether this makes any difference or not, but I had Chrome open throughout this entire process. Chrome, however, is not my default browser.

Hi;

I'm using matt's script archive for formmail. Here's the links:

http://www.timemachinewatch.com/email.html (ORDER LINK...does NOT work with FF only IE)


http://www.timemachinewatch.com/request.htm (REQUEST LINK...DOES work with FF)



One page (SEE LINK ABOVE) (REQUEST) works fine, the link above (ORDER) will not. Both are almost identical, and formmail is the same code on BOTH This just happened abt a month ago, was always working with FF last 10 years

CLICK THE LINKS ABOVE. THEN HIT THE "SEND" BUTTON ON PAGE. See if you guys can submit it with FF on order link or hopefully offer a solution. You can right click the page for page source to see the code.

No I am NOT going to update the FF Browser...been there, done that, FF 14.0 works fine for me and I am keeping it. Not an update issue here as neither would work otherwise

Here's hoping! Thanks in advance

Firefox Update Requires Admin Privs, But Does Not Check and Just Displays Misleading Message

Firefox attempts to perform an update from an Non-Admin account, the Update File is downloaded, the update is begun but the following misleading message is displayed... "unable to install firefox update make sure no firefox applications are open and then try again" ...and the message is displayed each time Firefox is activated.

Explanation In order to perform the update, the protected file; C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe must be opened with exclusive access. This fails because Non-Admin account may not modify files in the C:\Program Files\ folder. (Did Not Fail because it is open by another process) Performing the Update from the Admin Account executes properly. After Activating in Non-Admin Account, misleading message still displays, Firefox opens and includes "Updated" page showing 14.0.1 have been installed. Deleting the files from: C:\Documents and Settings\user_name\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Mozilla Firefox\updates\0 eliminates problem.

These issues need to be addressed by Firefox Development:

  1. Before attempting Update, check for Admin Privs. If not, then just notify Update is available.
  2. Modify Error Message to reflect true meaning for failure (system can be modified that updates are only possible by specific Admin account rather than Admin Group).
  3. When applying Update, delete other Update Pending files in other user's Directory Trees.

Will a Firefox Developer Please Respond?

For some reason, a number of websites (for example, NovoEd web site for a MOOC) are telling me that Firefox is not up to date, and one web site stated that I was using Firefox 14.0, although that's not what the file on my computer is called.

In fact, in reading my computer for this question, the Mozilla website has listed the version of the Firefox browser that I'm using as 14.0.1.

Has anyone else had this problem?

This PHP code works in all browsers except FireFox.

$_SESSION['user_level'] = (int) $_SESSION['user_level']; // Changes the 1 or 2 user level to an integer
$url = ($_SESSION['user_level'] === 1) ? 'admin-page.php' : 'members-page.php'; // Ternary operation to set the URL
header('Location: ' . $url); // Sends the user to one of the pages. The $url is a relative path

FF will send a user to members-page.php, but the user with a level of 1 only works in all other browsers including IE8.

I've installed VLC in my Windows 7 OS. In the Windows OS, I've installed Firefox with Microsoft Media Player Plugin v1.0.0.8, VLC also has a plugin registered in Firefox.

When I access a web site playing video streaming (.asx), I found that Firefox always load the VLC plugin but it won't able to play. Is there any way to instruct Firefox to load Microsoft Media Player Plugin v1.0.0.8 instead of VLC plugin? I can play the stream normally if I disabled to the VLC plugin, but I cannot disable VLC plugin since there is another web application requiring to use VLC for application use.

Please advise.

Thanks, Harry.
