UTube will start the movie OK, but stops a few seconds in, then buffers the feed?, and then continues. Sometimes it doesn't continue. I have a rather slow dsl connection - ethernet to my 2011 imac running 10.7.5. My question is: Is there some way to re-set the buffer settings so the videos play without stopping?

Without any warning or reason, Google just started providing instant results in my searches. I am logged in to my Google account and clearly have the function disabled. It doesn't matter if I use my home page (http://www.ighome.com/?t=165654) or start fresh with Google.com, the same thing keeps happening. I detest this autocomplete function. Is there any way to get rid of it?

Is there any chance SpiderMonkey 24 broke Pintrest?

Hi,

I'm not sure where to ask this, so, well, here... This is about changes to the SpiderMonkey javascipt engine between Spidermonkey 17 and Spidermonkey 24.

Firefox 24, 25, and 26beta for Win7 don't seem to display scripts on pintrest.com correctly. Menus on pintrest draw with no content, or cause error messages, or pages are displayed with no content except headers. Parts of the page that aren't scripted seem to work correctly, so I'm assuming this is something with javascript.

Firefox 21 - so Spidermonkey 17 - does display pintrest correctly.

I wondered if something had changed between Spidermonkey 17 and 24, and whether I should tell someone so they could check. But, I don't know how to test this further, or where to ask, or how to do a bug report...

Does anyone happen to know what I should do next?

Sorry to ask dumb newbie questions :)

And thank you

I run XP SP3 on a Dell Latitude D610 laptop. When I upgraded to FF 25.1, I found the downloader wouldn't run; the website (FileHippo.com) was sending files, but FF showed no signs of download activity. I added the Download toolbar (which I had used before), but it didn't work either. I was able to download the files I needed using IE, so the problem doesn't seem to be either the files or the website, so it's probably FireFox-related

I have a new laptop that I'm trying to move my booksmarks etc from my old laptop. I used sync once before on a laptop that I returned to the store because of repair issues. So, I know I've used it before. After I enter my email address, I didn't know my password so I reset it. When I went to use sync, I got the12 digits that were given to me on the new laptop and entered them into my old laptop. Then it would go to the next page and ask me to enter my username and password again and asked me for a recovery key. I have no recovery key. It says for me to go to options then sync and then recovery key. Well, I go to options but there is no selection for sync. It just lists the menu bar and tool bars and add-on bar. Under the Firefox button there is a set up sync option but when I tried that it said my username was already used. I would then select I've already got an account and the same thing would happen again! It asks for the 12 digits again and the cycle starts all over again. Now I've also tried my main Firefox password and it says there's no such password. So I have been sitting here for hours trying to figure this out. The first time I used it I had no problem at all! I put in the 12 characters and it synced. I don't understand why it's not working now. I really need an answer on this.

I was having issues playing streaming videos, and decided to uninstall and reinstall flash player. I am running XP SP3, so I used the add/remove programs and uninstalled it. Now I cannot re-install. I have gone to the adobe site (http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/) and selected to install the player via Firefox, but it failed and suggested manual installation. Selecting that link puts me on the adobe site, but selecting the download button sends me to an advertising page for other adobe products and no download occurs. I ran internet explorer to see if I could download the file and Firefox recognize it, but while it shows "Adobe Flash Player 11 ActiveX" in the installed program list, Firefox knows no difference. Any suggestions?

I am using Firefox 25.0 as default and running Windows 7. When on the internet whenever I click on an email to open it or click on a news item with video content I get another website, e.g. Vube.com, or Arcadehits (something of that nature) opening up either behind or in front of the window I need to use. This is becoming most invasive. I have scanned the computer with two anti-spyware/malware programs that found some problems but which did not stop the problem. I have deleted all programs and downloads that either I do not recognise or do not want anymore again to no avail. Any solutions anyone?

I have had a problem that has corrupted IE10 and IE11 and they will no longer start. I tend to swap between IE and FF. I have an old set of bookmarks in FF but want to update it to those more recently used in IE. I have found them in a folder c:\users\stuart\favourites\(lots of subfolders), but if I import via FF using the "from a browser" option, it imports nothing. The folders I want are not html, they are folders containing url files.

Is there some way to delete my old set of bookmarks from FF and import this up to date set fro those folders?

Thanks

I would like a simple recent history list displayed when I click on the down-arrow on the right end of URL entry box. By which I mean a simple most-recently-visited-on-the-top list of URLs. What I get by default is a list that makes absolutely no sense to me, is in some unknown order, and is of no value whatsoever. I have no idea what algorithm is used to populate the list that is displayed leaving the URL line completely blank. I can't find an option that would set this list mode. I find the awesome bar awesomely annoying as is.

Hi. We are developing a website at the moment and unless I have FF in safe-mode some of the icons do not display properly. All other browsers work fine and it used to display in FF with no issues. The website is www.livingonmars.com and the icons are the 2 arrows in the top right hand corner of the slideshow. When in safe-mode I see both of the arrows. When started in normal mode I see the bottom half of the left arrow and the top half of the right arrow.
