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).

For example here: http://unetealfuturodeltrabajo.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/esthetic-world-dic-2012.pdf

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.

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.

I installed 17.0.1 soon after it was released. Worked fine; worked fine yesterday.

Today when I start 17.0.1 a window pops up "Abine initialization error Please close Internet Explorer (sic!) to complete initialization. Cancel to continue initialization later. [Cancel] [OK]"

OK button closes window and pops up another: "Abine initialization cancelled Restart FireFox (sic) to complete initialization and use Abine."

Cancel button pops up first window again. After a few of these, the second window is popped up instead.

.......

Tools Add-ons Taco Disable, followed by Remove gets the grey bar with the text saying that Taco has been removed. Exiting and restarting Firefox repeats the behavior above.

Against your advice, I tried installing 16.0.2 over 17.01. 16.0.2 now crashes every time. I have reinstalled 17.0.1 Behavior is as above.

........

I suggest that, once this problem is solved, Mozilla reexamine the approval of add-ons from Abine. This is not the first time that Abine has arranged to have a Firefox add-in that can not be removed.

Cordially, Joaquin

I have activated 'click to play' for plugins at the moment (by about:config). Whenever i click on a flash area in a website, my browser hangs up.

My browser is Firefox 17.0.1 (don't know, if the problem existed even with version 17.0). Firefox 16.0.2 is working properly with the same Flash plugin (current release by 26th, December, 2012).

My browser version is the official version, which is downloadable from the Firefox website at any time (and not the repository version from Ubuntu 12.04) and the flash plugin is saved in the 'plugins' subdirectory, as usual. (Firefox also hangs up with deactivated add-ons in safe mode, as plugins aren't deactivated in this mode)

After viewing imbedded videos for a time, the video ends up going away, but I still have sound. (So I know it's playing the video.) Doesn't seem to matter what site I'm on, the video ends up as a half screen or less, or black screen. I can shut down Firefox and restart it, and all is well again for a time. I get no error message since the video is playing even if I can't see the video part of it, and I can't seem to find any problems anywhere on the system that would be causing this. Since all comes back to normal with a restart of Firefox, I thought this would be a good place to start looking for a fix.

Update won't install. If I check for updates manually, it searches and searches and searches some more, and eventually I have to close it down. If I wait for the popup asking me to download and install, then this proceeds automatically and presents a large popup with a Finish button; if I press this nothing happens and eventually I have to close the window manually. 18.0.2 has not downloaded or installed. Very tedious! [PS I note that the troubleshooter installer is also hanging now. Everything else installs OK on my laptop, but not apparently Firefox stuff...]
