Running auto updated Firefox 17.0.1 on Windows 7. I used to be able to stream Netflix just fine until late in the evening, 11/30/2012. I tried to stream a movie and Netflix showed a window saying it couldn't due to a problem using Silverlight, code 2103. Netflix suggested I remove and reload Silverlight. I did, twice. I also updated Firefox yesterday, just in case. Still, no joy. I can stream Netflix just fine with Internet Explorer. What gives?

Hi, I cannot open a pdf on mac - am running 17.0.1 on mac os 10.6.8.

I followed the instructions here: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/pdf-files-are-blank-and-cant-be-downloaded-mac?esab=a&s=pdf+mac&r=0&as=s but the problem is not fixed - I just get left with a blank screen in a new tab when trying to open pdfs (the downloads folder is also empty).

Recently, most of the icons that signify specific sources or locations or actions on web pages in my browser have stopped appearing. I get either no image or only generic gray icons (like a document icon). It makes most sites (e.g. like Amazon) nearly unusable. I don't think I've made any changes recently in my browser or my system. What has happened and how can I get my icons back. (BTW, I am NOT having this problem with Internet Explorer.) I am using Firefox 17.0.1, with an up-to-date Windows 7.

It's not the font on the text that I type with, but the Address bar, Bookmarks(Include the images), so everything above the tabs(Include the tab text/images), and the right click menu. If I go into Firefox safe mode it all works fine, I have tried to disable all addons but the problem is still there.

Edit: Tried to Reset firefox to default, didn't work. Uninstalled firefox and removed everything, didn't work. Downloaded firefox portable from portable apps, works, but I don't want to have it portable.

Brand new FF 17.0.1 install. Apparently over the best FF: 3.5.

Steps to reproduce:

1. going to web page with recaptcha on it. 2. Does not appear. 3. Inspect it with "firebug" and between the script tags it says "Reload the page to see the source of https://www.google.com/....." 4. Refreshing the page does nothing. 5. Take the google URL and put it into new tab 6. the new tab says the (domain/cert?) isn't allowed, but allows me to add an exception for it. 7. I click "Add Exception" and it spits back the Javascript. 8. Go back to the original tab 9. F5 10. recaptcha now works.

This page works in FF3.5, and all versions of IE and Chrome attempted. Has the same non-working behaviour in FF14. Both FF's are on Win7.

Do I have to changer browsers to watch Facebook videos if I want to use the Flash-Block extension with recent updates of Firefox and Flash-Player?

I had to disable Flash-block to view videos in Facebook following recent updates of Firefox to 17.0.1 and Flash Player 11.5 on Mac Snow-Leopard OS X.6.8.

With the Flash Block extension enabled, I can view videos on all other sites, like news and u-tube and other blogs, and on Facebook with other browsers such as Safari.

I prefer Firefox, but I prefer it best with Flash Block enabled, because I have slow internet and most sites load more slowly without Flash Block. And Flash Block is a great add-on that eliminates a lot of annoying characteristics of Flash Player.

Is there anyway to use my updated Firefox for watching Facebook videos (and everything else I do) and to have Flash Block enabled? Are there Flash Block or Firefox updates to make this workable?

I really don't want to switch to another browser. I love Firefox.

Prior to the recent Flash Player updates from V 10 to V 11, and Firefox update to 17.0.1, I could watch videos on Facebook with no problem with Flash Block enabled.

I always used to be able to search and retrieve password -- but the UI has changed recently and whatever I search for nothing is returned; but for many sites it still auto fills in my name/password so they are there. I've tried searching for anyone else having this problem but can't find anything -- can't believe I'm alone though...

Do I just down grade -- or is there anything else I can do to get functionality back?

I don't like how firefox treats sessions in the new versions. I mean in 3.6 I could easily restore a session, I could pick what pages/windows I don't like to be restored. And most importantly, I could keep more sessions. Example, lets say I have 10 tabs and I terminate firefox, next if I don't restore the tabs, I can keep that restoresession tab, and by following this I can have unlimited restore sessions so I can backup everything I need. So my question is: how can I change back to the old way firefox treated sessions. plus, I liked the 3.6 design better, though I managed to get a look that is very similar to 3.6, I just might go back to 3.6 just because of the restoresession thing.

Have https://www.google.com/ set as home page.

What I get: Go to a website

What I do: click Bookmarks>Google url link

Result: https://www.google.com

Go to a website does result in Google home page loading, but it appears to be loaded locally, not via an internet connection. Have Flagfox installed as an add-on, but this does not load until I do step 2, and only then is any activity seen in the lower left hand corner of the browser as the Google page loads.

Odd thing is, without an active internet connection, FF reports page not found error and Google is not displayed.

Note that step 3 is missing a backslash at the end of the url, even tho it is set and entered properly in Options for General>Startup.  ???

A https connection should also be green if valid, and I am not seeing that on most https sites. GRC.com does show this green color, but that is the only one that seems to work for me. Clicking the lock icon does give me vendor ownership information; the others state 'unknown'. Example: "You are connected to mozilla.org which is run by (unknown) Verified by GeoTrust, Inc. Your connection to this website is encrypted to prevent eavesdropping.

QuickTime bug? My website uses simple HMTL with HREF="./whatever.wav". Firefox 17.0.1 just updated, but problem also with previous version. QuickTime reinstalled. WIndows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, but same problem on a MacBook. The QuickTime plugin used to play .wav files OK. Now though, at best you get just a few seconds of music, but it does not crash. New router, but the wav files play OK with Windows Media Player. OK, I could use Windows Media Player, but I want users of my website to have no problems with QuickTime.
