While playing a YouTube video and either pausing it or clicking to change the resolution quality,. or clicking on ANYTHING inside the video, scrolling is disabled . This has been going on since July. I've had it with two computers and two versions of the touch pad, including the latest one. The touch pad scrolling is disabled as well as the arrow keys for me also.

It's not caused by addons, restore points and reinstalling Firefox don't fix it, and it also happens with several Adobe Flash versions, including the current 11.5.502.110. and 10.3 Rolling back to Adobe Flash 10.3.183.43 for BOTH Firefox and Internet Explorer Active X version, allows you to click on the page to reenable scrolling but you shouldn't even have to do that.. All other trouble shooting steps are useless. Clicking on the page alone doesn't work with the 11.5. This NEVER happens with IE9 or Chrome 23. It also happens if you change anything in the video.... clicking on replay, or changing the resolution. Disabling Protected Mode by adding a command line ProtectedMode=0 to the mms.cfg file is the best workaround with 11.5, but you still have to click once on the page, and this defeats the purpose of Protected Mode.

Workarounds:

       1. Install Adobe Flash 10.3 for BOTH Firefox and the Active X Flash version for Internet Explorer, then click on the page to re enable scrolling whenever it gets disabled.
              To Uninstall Adobe Flash:  
          http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html
              To Install Flash 10.3.   Click on the the link below and on the page that opens  click on the link for each browser. Firefox is the one "for other browsers".
           http://forums.adobe.com/thread/889580
     
     2.With Adobe 11.5.   Flash Player 10.3 for Internet Explorer Either click on the desktop and then click on the page, which is definitely the easiest, or:
     3.Switch tabs and then back, or:
    
     4. click on another application and then back, but that's reasonable only if you're doing that normally, otherwise it's much too awkward. 

I posted a very detailed bug about this on Bugzilla on 11/16 but so far no one's picking it up to work on it as of 11/20. I've also reported this in Suggestions as a complaint. I've posted this same issue on another thread weeks ago, all to no avail.

The Developers need to understand that experienced users like me are going to put up with just so much of this garbage and then .we switch to Chrome. The average user doesn't even hang around that long and many of them never come back. is there ever going to be a fix for this? I promise you one thing- if there isn't, people are going to be eventually switching Chrome in droves! Staff is just ignoring this and it's not the first time I've seen them with their heads in the sand. Their infamous "Support" articles cannot help with an obvious Developer issue, but that's all they seem to be willing to do. How about they contact the Developers, and get this fixed - is that too much to ask after four damn months?

The Developers really need to coordinate this with Adobe's Engineers. It certainly doesn't seem like they're doing that, and if they are, then Staff needs to come down from their ivory tower and tell us.

Hello,

Right now, my browser is formatted such that the tabbar is on top. This works fine but there is a tiny gap of a few pixels from the top of my screen to the top of the tab. This results in not being able to move my mouse to the top of the screen and selecting tabs. Is there some way to remove it so that I can select tabs even with my mouse at the top limit of my screen?

Also, when I have two or more tabs opened at the same time, the whole info bar (where the tab bar and nav toolbar sit) shifts downwards. For instance, when I have one tab open, the whole info bar is X height. But when I open a new tab, it widens to an X+ height. If I close this new tab, it will shrink back to X height. How can I fix this?

Thank you for you're help

About 4 days ago, Adobe Flash Player updated to 11.5 and started crashing multiple times a day. So when Firefox updated to 17 today, I immediately uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled the new versions in hope that the problems would be fixed. When that wasn't the case, I followed all the steps for Flash 11.3 and nothing has worked. This is only happening in Firefox. Flash works fine in Google Chrome and in Internet Explorer. My school's primary requirement is that I use Firefox with Flash to do my schoolwork. This is an issue if I have to restart Firefox multiple times during my session. 25% of all Flash crashes also crash Firefox. I need help soon.

Since updating from 16 to 17, desktop shortcuts created by dragging show generic Windows icon instead of Firefox-page icon.

Upon upgrading from FF 16 to 17, I can still drag the icon that's to the left of the url to the desktop (or even to the XP Quick Launch Bar, Folder Shortcuts, etc.) to create an internet shortcut to the current page. However, with 17 this method produces a shortcut that shows a generic Windows icon instead of a Firefox-page icon. Even though a generic Windows icon normally denotes "no program associated," these still open with FF when double-clicked. But it doesn't look right. (BTW, all the shortcuts created by this method in FF 16 or lower retained the FF-page icon with the upgrade to 17.)

Any ideas why this changed and how to fix it so it looks the same as before?

Pending resolution of this (and another issue) I went back to FF 16, and it works normally again. However, the shortcuts that were created while I had 17 still show the generic Windows icon.

fixed in Firefox 21 - locking this old thread

This is more of a criticism than a bug report. It seems that whenever I run Firefox, there is an issue. I can't tell you how many computers I've been to where:

  • Firefox complains that it is out of date.

I get it, updating software is hard, but don't burden me with the issue. Updates should be quiet and seemless.

  • Firefox needs to inform me about my rights.

99.9999999999% of users don't know or care about this.

  • Firefox is unhappy that it's not my default browser.
  • Firefox babies the user when downloading extensions.

Adding a 3 second timer to your install button doesn't make the user choose safer decisions. It just makes me impatient. What's the justification for this delay? Do you have proof that you've curbed malicious behavior?

I just want to run Firefox and not be burdened with all of this. Don't bother me with updates, don't treat me like a baby, just get out of the way so I can get to work.

Thank you.

When attempting to use websites like Battlefield 3's "Battlelog" and Netflix's "Watch Instantly", which require Windows Vista or Windows 7, these websites fail to recognize my OS, which is Windows 7 64-bit.

I recently uninstalled an addon called Masking Agent, which purported to hide a computer's specifications from websites. How this addon got onto my computer I am unsure.

I've added a few Firefox add-ons since upgrading to Firefox 16.0.2 and would like to donate. However, the donate links which re-direct to paypal are not working for me (the donate links that redirect to the developers personal website do work, however). After trying to re-direct to paypal, it doesn't succeed and then turns the webpage a transparent grey, with the Firefox webpage visible underneath. Before upgrading to Firefox 16x, I was running Firefox 8x with Flash Player 10x (with Windows XP sp3), and the donate link worked fine. It should be noted that I am running Flash Player 10.3x because I also have the Real Player Download plug-in which is incompatible with Flash Player 11x. I've disabled other add-ons which might be causing a conflict (like Adblock plus and Real Player Download), and have enabled pop-up windows in Firefox options, but the donate link still doesn't work. I think my only option is to upgrade Flash Player 11x (which then I would have to downgrade after donating if I want the Real Player Download plug-in to work). Anyone else experiencing this problem?

Since I believe ffox 16 (on both OS X and Win7), I've found that whenever I correct a misspelled word in a Gmail compose window using rich text — by backspacing and retyping — ffox will highlight *the retyped part of the word* as being misspelled. This has been driving me nuts. I've since tracked down the problem to the rich text environment within ffox itself, I think. Examining the original source of the email message in Gmail, you can clearly see the 'corrected' text in the MIME HTML encoded message, and using view selection source prior to sending. Firefox is inserting tags at the point where I begin retyping! So my guess is the spell checker fails for the 'new' word, where it is not valid in its own right.

To illustrate, I wrote a simple new email with the text 'what is this nonsense', where 'this' and 'nonsense' were first misspelled (missing letter), then corrected by backspace and retyping.

I'm using an onload eventlistener to call a script which increases the value of a variable. I need to get the variable's value before I increase it. Safari and Chrome (Webkit) give the right result but Firefox always alerts "0"... To be clear: Firefox also alerts "done" which means it gets the job done but it does NOT alert the right value before I increase it!


This is my Script:

var obj = {

   build: function() {
       var progressCount = 0; 
       var otherFunction = function(number) {
               alert(number);
       } ;
       var finalFunction = function() {
               alert("done");
       } ;
       var progress = function() {
               alert(progressCount);  // very important line!
               progressCount++;
               otherFunction(progressCount);
               if (progressCount == ARRAY.length) {
               finalFunction();
               }
       };
       ARRAY=document.getElementsByClassName("picture");
       for (var i = 0; i < ARRAY.length; i++)
       ARRAY[i].addEventListener("load", progress);
   }

}

obj.build();


What else could I try? Thank you very much!
