my desktop was not connected to internet for over a year, once it did, it downloaded a lot of updates, and now firefox is not automatically putting in my login info to some webpages i go to. password manager is correct, i followed all directions on it, and it matches what is on my laptop, which works fine. but i also had to download some program for the laptop that has left a 'key' type icon next to the home button. this icon directly opens the password manager on my laptop. i think i need that for my desktop. thanks, jay

This is a development machine. I write software that runs in browsers, including yours. I would keep your browser current in terms of releases, except that the framework I use does not always keep up. I do try to keep up with your security releases. That is certainly worth the risk and effort. Your information says that the 'releases' update channel 'includes' security releases. How about an update channel that ONLY contains security releases?

And, by the way, how do I find out the number and properties of an impending update? I am only presented with a button to install a release. No information of what I am installing.

Since upgrade, Firefox 20 and Adobe flash player 11 eat up all my CPU when playing streaming video

Win7 64 bit Firefox20 Adobe flashplayer 11 plugin

when streaming, Task Manager notes:

Flashplayerplugin__11__7__700__169.exe *32 -- uses 50% of CPU and higher

plugin - container.exe*32 -- uses 40% of CPU and higher

Using 100% of CPU results in choppy video. I do not believe this heavy CPU use was not the case before I upgraded from Firefox13 and Adobe flashplayer 11. I tried downgrading but this did not seem to make a difference.

Thanks for any help.

After updating to a version after FlashPlayer 11.02 when opening a window with flash videos on, next to the process of Firefox in the Task Bar appears a new process with the Flash Player icon and the video window is placed in the top left corner and can't be moved. If there are more then one video in that page when clicking that Flash Player icon you can see a list of all the videos.

Using FlashPlayer 11.02 this problem doesn't happen and I used this solution for some time, but now If I use that version I get a black window with an error message about security reasons, but if I click it it plays without any problem. Although in some websites that need Flash it says it needs at least version 10, but I have 11.02 but doesn't recognize it and demands to be upgraded.

This is all very weird because only happens in my laptop, I have a desktop with the exact same windows and Firefx version and this doesn't happen. I already tried to uninstall Firefox completly and even deleteing all plugins and extensions and the problem remains.

Uninstalling Flash player also solves this, but then I'm asked to update the the Flash player. This problems doesn't happen in Chrome or IExplorer 10:

My browser freezes then I get the error about adobe crashing. This has been happening for a few months now. I've uninstalled and reinstalled firefox and adobe multiple times. I tried making a new profile for firefox also, but nothing has helped. This past week I have also been getting errors about the shockwave plugin crashing. I've tried malware removal, antivirus removal, but it's all coming back clean. I'm not sure what to do anymore.

This has been going on for years. When I have 3 or 4 tabs, especially facebook open, and am watching a youtube video Firefox freezes up a lot. I just dealt with it but I'm starting to get sick of it. The only addons I use are DownloadHelper and AdBlock Plus. I have a lot of plugins disabled. I don't know what is causing this but I just checked on my CPU Usage and Firefox was using 266,000+ K and that's not counting Flash, which was using 70,000+ K. Someone please help me fix this extremely irritating issue.

I have noticed that on some websites the navigation buttons do not appear. In particular the TomTom shop would not work in Firefox because instead of the buttons I get a moving icon of bars, like a progress meter, but no button to click. Works fine on the old Explorer I have still on the PC. Also noticed that the Google "paid for" search results do not do anything, (but this may be down to the fact I have blocked doubleclick). Currently running Firefox version 20.0.1 on Windows 7 32 bit. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Regards

Windows 7. I am the sole user and the administrator. Each time I start Firefox I get the "The update could not be installed. Please make sure you do not have any other instances of firefox... etc." Task Manager reports all firefox instances are closed, both apps and processes. Happens even after rebooting Windows 7 Help About Firefox reports I am on 20.0.1 "You are currently on the RELEASE channel.

There is a "Restart to Update" box. When clicked, Firefox restarts and the "The update could not be installed..." notification is there again.

I have seen this reported forever, it seems, and lots of "fixes" are suggested, yet none work. Does ANYONE have any idea why this happens, or better yet, how to fix it?

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/970859]

Somethaing added a HUGE amount of bookmarks to my bookmarks toolbar folder (more than a thousand). When I try to select even one bookmark, Firefox hangs for 2-3 minutes. Deleting (I cant tell if it is deleting, there are so many) can take longer. The bookmarks backup file is over 2 megabytes long. I don't want to start from a clean disk, I have bookmarks I want to save. Used to be able to edit with a text editor. I am open to suggestions, thanks in advance for any help.

         Firefox can't find the server at www.[r;;iåvÞyevq¾qîx»òki.com.
       
       
 Check the address for typing errors such as
   ww.example.com instead of
   www.example.com
 If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
   connection.
 If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure

I have reset Firefox. I have reset to blank and to Mozilla as default. I don't understand your instructions about malware (but is it???) resetting and too nervous in messing up my laptop to try ! :(

I now detest Delta Search and want it totally removed forever.

Nothing gets rid of it.
