My older mac was on the fritz and just got it back from repair. It was rest to an older version of Firefox so I've downloaded latest version but when I try to install it says 'Unable to Update' ' A recommended security and stability update is available but you do not have the system permissions required to install it. Please contact your systems admin, or try again from the account that has permission to install software on this computer'.

What do I need to change in my settings?

thank you!

An error started occuring yesterday when Google/Youtube disabled Flash completely, everywhere. Even though I'm on old OS (XP) and FF version (39.0.3) I'm able to play 99% of videos even in high quality and at 60 fps (which is another problem I asked about in separate question). Thing is - there's that 1%, usually the newest videos, that I cannot play whith the error message saying that "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available". Thing is - I can play 99% of videos in HTML5. I just don't get it...

After update to recent flash update the videos on many website are not working have to change to html but that also did not solve the problem since it is not supporting many embedded videos and other website also getting crashed when it is trying to opening that.

before the update firefox was running smoothly without any problem.

Cannot use html5 a)since it consumes a lot more cpu memory and hogs down the system b)the default play is 360p which also consumes lot of data and requires a more bandwidth. c)even if you don`t want to watch full video the buffering never stops. d)if you open multiple tabs all tabs are by default start playing auto play which cannot be turned off either in config or plugins section in about:config e)if i want to migrate to other version of Firefox i have restore section in which older tabs are saved if i update will it be lost.(how to save that )

if flash cannot be used can somebody suggest the fix for above problems with html5.


kindly suggest the info to resolve this issues.

thx in advance

Unfortunately last night Youtube forced crappy HTML5 on everyone (they disabled Flash, addons are not working) and now there's an issue. Even though I have old OS (WinXP), old Firefox 39.0.3 (never versions have performance and stability issues) I am able to play most youtube videos in 1080p. Thing is, those recorded on 60fps are playing in 60fps as well. And that's the problem - that's too much for my computer, even at 720p/60 CPU usage is between 88 and 97%. I have AMD GPU and AFAIK last drivers do not support 60fps either (there will be no newer ones). Is there any way to disable 60fps and play higher resolution videos in 30fps?

have the following error :-


The connection has timed out

The server at www.pcdatravel.gov.in is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   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 that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Not sure of the correct terminology to use here. I post ads from time to time and usually just copy the data over from a doc file. This works fine. But I heard there are some programs that will remember the data and do it for you. This would save enormous amounts of time. So I tried Auto Form 1.2.4.1 but I don't think this is designed for this. Rather it seems to just retain one form as there seems to be no place to associate the form fields with a particular URL. There's no Help file of course. You have to be psychic to know how to use it, much like so many add-ons.

So we need something that will remember those fields when at a particular URL. Any recommendations?

And what is the different between a add-on, extension and app? Aren't they all just little programs that run inside Firefox?

I am utterly astounded as to why people are allowed to upload add-ons that obviously are not ready for prime time. These is usually no guidelines showing you how to use them, often it seems impossible to get them to even start. When you search for them often the description is almost non-existent. Why is this happening? Doesn't anybody care? Or is it because there are so many being submitted that they are impossible to regulate or oversee? How about offering a question area that links to this forum? Maybe others that have used a particular add-on could help us strugglers because clearly the designers lack the ability to communicate anything useful here. Did all techies fail Grade 1 English and give up afterwards? I'm perplexed.

I should mention I'm using Firefox 39 (because of constant crashing of more modern versions), not a recent version. On Win7. I wonder if this could be the reason so many don't seem to work. But shouldn't the browser tell me if it won't work? Or is that way too logical?

I had to restore my operating system. I was able to recover places.sqlite to restore bookmarks (good!). I was able to find a key3.db (dated July 2013) that file won't be complete or up to date, but at least it puts me somewhere ahead.

I read that I need a signon3.txt file to go with the key3. I don't have one. I did find a signons.sqlite file dated Sept 2014. I moved both these files to my profiles folder but I don't get my old passwords back.

Is it possible for me to use the old key3? Do the key3 and signons have to be dated the same? Is there a way to recreate the signons.txt?

I do have the master password.

Thanks for help.

It seems that Youtube is again forcing HTML5 player even for older versions of Firefox (UA switching doesn't work anymore). I see there are some addons that can bring the old player back and if they can do it - is there any trick to make Youtube use Flash without installing an addon? Because addons are working after youtube starts loading HTML5 so there's a visible delay. Thanks.

Placeholders: How to implement in Firefox?

Not sure if placeholders is the right term here. I often find that when a webpage loads the text first (great) then the images load and because they weren't there before, suddenly the text jumps lower or higher to make way for the images. You used to be able to control this so the text loads in the right position (is that a feature that loads the frames of the images first? If so its great.) Sometimes the text jumps 3 or more times. This is incredibly irritating, especially when you're trying to quickly bypass this uninteresting page to get somewhere else but you can't hit the link because its constantly moving up or down. Any solution? Have I used the right terms? Probably not!
