Adblock plus removed during a Firefox fix, replaced it with Adblock strict, need to restore plus

Back in February, I updated Firefox on my MacBook Pro, OSX 10.6.8. AdBlock Plus was moved into the Old Firefox Data folder. Not realizing this, I went to Add-ons. The closest description I thought was AdBlock Strict, which I installed.

It has annoyed me ever since. Ads load everywhere. When I click on any live link in an e-mail or a website, the popup asks Allow or Deny, I click Allow and nothing happens. Since every time I do something to this computer, I get it wrong and waste a lot of time, I have let this problem annoy me every day and go to work on another, newer MacBook Pro (without ads and with working links).

I've finally had it! I want to get the old AdBlock Plus back and ditch Strict forever.

I have Avery labels and need to download the correct template from the Avery website to print them. Firefox indicates for some reason that the site is "locked" or something to that effect. I've downloaded the templates in the past, but now cannot get to the site.

Hello, Very regularly (several times a day) Firefox gets a hang. I need to force stop and restart again. I am using Mac OS X, version 10.6.8.

Details: Mac OS X version 10.6.8 Memory 8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 After installing the latest update Firefox I got a message from Mac that I should have problems with Firefox if I do not update their system. I do not prefer to do that but instead going back to the previous installed version of Firefox. Is there somebody who can inform me how to do that?

All I have are the options in the photos attached. None of them give an option to see a list of websites that have access to my mic and camera.

"Tools > Page info > Permissions" does not work because I need to know the name of the website first, before I can go to it and click the green lock on the left of the address bar.

I would like to see a list of websites that have access to my camera and mic. Such as a "Permissions" area.

Thank you

Hello, I like using Firefox & it used to work great with Yahoo mail, until about 6 months ago. I have Mac OS X, 10.6.8. I can use Yahoo mail on Safari, but I want to still use my Yahoo mail on Firefox, where I have all my contacts.

I read some of the Yahoo solutions which are online, but it seems, I have all the correct settings.

Maybe, I have to call Firefox for help.

Thank YOU,

Matthew

Hi there,

I was checking my browsing history and cleaning it up a little bit. I wanted to delete a single Google-hit, but then I accidentally pressed the 'Forget this website-button'. So now all my Google-hits are gone. Is there a possibility I can undo this action?

Thank you in advance!

Kind regards,

Gerrit

When I click on a site such as Facebook the machine icon rolls around and around and then eventually times out. If I try to have more than one window open Firefox will crash. Sometimes it just quits without warning and won't restore my session. Sometimes it won't quit, even when using "force quit", and slows down everything on my computer. I hope you are not slowing things down on purpose to force people to buy new expensive computers.
