I am using Firefox on Windows 7. I am getting a popup message box that has title "Adobe Flash Player Settings" and it says that s.ytimg.com is requesting to store information on your computer. There are numerous internet complaints regarding the same message for Internet Explorer. They say it is an adobe message caused by YouTube but the message box looks like it is a trick for a virus because it asks you to approve or deny using more memory space. it says "Requested 10kb" How do you fix this and or turn it off or remove it? Adobe help says it is the application causing the problem, but this is not an app, but a server name. The message pops up right in the middle of any embedded YouTube video and ruins the ability to open it without hitting one of the two buttons. Corrective actions are on Microsoft for Internet Explorer, but nothing in your database for firefox.

I want to search Google USA only, but I live in Australia, and Google keeps reverting to .com.au. I mananged to have it set to this previously and have been using it like that for months. But since I updated Firefox a few days ago, this setting seems to have disappeared and I cannot remember how I got it set up. I only want Google.com and not .com.au unless I specifically type that in. Can anyone help, please?

Apple's Mobile Me (sync, find my iPhone, etc.) is switching to iCloud.com. Mobile Me worked fine with Firefox, but when we try to sign in to iCloud.com we get the message "Connection Error - iCloud encountered an error while trying to connect to the server". Cookies are enabled. We had no problem at all connecting, signing-in, etc. with, excuse me, Internet Explorer, but we obviously vastly prefer to use Firefox.

I am running Ubuntu 11.04 on my laptop and use firefox as my main browser. I have a very strange experience when browsing video sites like Youtube.com or Bumperhit.com Some videos are playing all right. But some others, show an error message "Please install Flash Player" etc etc. I am unable to understand, why this is happening only for some videos?

Also when I try to install the flash Player from Adobe's site, there is no option to save the program. I would like to save the program, so that I have to download the installable multiple times.

Thank you in advance for your valuable guidance.

Regards Sujata

This only started happening with Firefox 7, all previous version worked fine. When using "Save Image", Firefox will not remember the most recent location in which images were saved. It will instead randomly choose prior locations in which images were saved. When saving images, I save them in different folders to sort them properly, but firefox never remembers the most recent one used. This is INCREDIBLY ANNOYING because if I want to saving a group of images in a common folder, it constantly forces me to navigate to that folder instead of remembering the location of that folder from the last image saved there.

Drop in savings menu started coming up on web pages recently-shows up in upper right corner and usually about where the logout word is when you want to close a program upper right corner and shows coupons. not sure if they're usable as I did not ask to be shown anything by the program I did not add so I don't trust where it might take me. How can I eliminate it from the browser or block it from running in the browser? I just need some technical instructions on how to find it when it runs and stop it.

Since upgading to FF7, the Windows 7 taksbar floats above fullscreen Flash video.

I've updated to FF 7.01, updated the Flash player to 10.3.183.10, disabled all other plugins and extensions, and the problem persists.

For the moment, I have to autohide the taksbar in Windows when watching fullscreen video.

Happens on YouTube and Vimeo and all other video sites I've tested.
