I normally have used IE for browsing but lately with all the issues it has been having, I am trying to use Mozilla Fire Fox. The lingo is a little different and I'm trying to get use to it. Most Visited is suppose to keep track of the last 10 websites that I have visited the most as you browse the web.

My problem must be in the setup and I don't know where to go to fix this. Every time I use Fire Fox and go to a website I thought it would save that to Most Visited. In my case, nothing has been saved into that tab. What did I do wrong during the setup?

After the new firefox update, I cannot play videos from:

1. www.TED.com (like http://www.ted.com/playlists/81/ted_in_3_minutes)

or listen to music from: 1. http://www.air1.com/broadcast/playnow.aspx?media=listen&bt=3&

I contacted AIR1 support and they confirmed there is indeed a problem with playing music from firefox.

I have tried to resolve this by: 1. updating flash 2. uninstalling / re-installing flash 3. safe mode in firefox

Thanks!

I'm a novice who's learning overlay extensions. I've been through a good bit of the tutorial. I then built a basic extension shell with a custom toolbar button by following the steps in https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Tech/XUL/Toolbars/Custom_toolbar_button. As part of the exercise, I downloaded the two recommended icons (for add-ons manager and the toolbar), and did not modify them. I did add some code to the java file. I copied the (unzipped) extension folder to the extensions folder in my profile, as instructed, and restarted the browser. An install dialog was launched, and when I responded okay, the extension installed perfectly. The icons showed up in add-on manager, and I was able to drag the button icon to the toolbar. The button works fine, launching the java.

Then, following instructions on another tutorial page, I used 7-zip to archive all items from the root extension folder, in Zip format, and gave the file an xpi extension. I then uninstalled the original extension from the extensions folder, and bounced the browser. Then, from add-ons manager, I invoked "install add-on from file", and selected the new xpi file. The install went through the usual confirmations, and the extension was now reinstalled. Only one problem -- both icons are blank. Both in the add-ons manager, and on the toolbar button. I can click the ghost button in the toolbar, and it still launches the java, but no png images show up, including in the customization dialog.

I've tried manually installing the extension again, and the icons show up. But a subsequent xpi install leaves them blank. I tried re-creating the xpi file by using the Windows zip program instead of 7-zip, but still got blank icons.

In searching the web, I found an instance of another user who lost the icon images only after zipping the extension, so it's not just me. But the responses to that post didn't seem helpful.

Any ideas?

Now I have to: 1) click again on the stupid blue star to get the menu to place my new bookmark where I choose to instead of have it go to unsorted bookmarks... OR 2) bring up or have up the menu bar and click on the "bookmarks" menu choice of "bookmark this page" which brings up what I'd call the choice or sort menu that lets me access my bookmarks menu...

...where I wanted to go to create a bookmark AND I get to select "choose", which is what I used to do when adding ANY bookmark.

I want the "bookmark this page" selection back on the "show your bookmarks" list on the right...where it belongs. Why does everyone want to keep hiding the useful tools?

Firefox 29 stinks and I've had nothing but problems from the beginning...and since making the mistake of resetting. I now have a folder of stuff that I have no clue what to do with as, upon resetting, I got "Oooops this is embarrassing, we're having a problem" or something. Any clues about what to do with all that "junk" (now, to me) might also be helpful.

For some reason, ver 30 doesn't work for me. Nothing wil load - it's as if there is no internet access. The Internet Explorer works fine.

I see the advice about it being a problem with the firewall, but I don't know what's wrong or understand how to fix it. I changed my options from automatically install updates to "Check for updates, but let me choose..." and then I did a system restore, and went back to ver 29, but the option to automatically download also was restored, and ver 30 reloaded and will update next time I open Firefox. I tried this twice and am stuck at the same place.

Is there a way just to restore previous version? I'm hoping that sooner or later Norton and Firefox will get back in sync ...

Thanks!

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.

When I reinstalled v29.0.1 the problem stopped.

Until v30.0 all Firefox updates have worked with little or no problems.

In FF 29, I have a need to change the yellow folder icon associated with one or more specific bookmarks folders. I prefer to do this with css, rather than with an extension. Following an example in another thread, I did the following:

Use the troubleshooting menu to open the profile folder. Create a subfolder named "chrome". In "chrome", create a file called "userChrome.css", and insert the text shown below. Copy sample ico, png and gif images to "chrome" for testing. Save and close the css file, and bounce the browser. No results - for example, in Library view. The "My Saved Links" bookmarks subfolder definitely exists. I suspected that I might be doing the URL wrong, trying to access a small image file in "chrome" called "test.png". I've tried 'test.png', '/test.png', and '../test.png' on hunches, though I'm not yet a heavy css user.

Help would be appreciated. The css is as follows:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item[container][label="My Saved Links"],
#bookmarksMenuPopup .bookmark-item[container][label="My Saved Links"],
appmenu_bookmarksPopup  .bookmark-item[container][label="My Saved Links"]
{ list-style-image:url('test.png')!important;
 -moz-image-region:auto!important; } 


moderator fixed the code formatting

Several weeks ago I installed FF 29.0.1 on two virtually-identical XP systems. I've been carefully maintaining extensions, settings, etc., in parallel on both systems.

Initially, my primary system told me if an extension in my search list was incompatible with 29.0.1, and presumably that's what I want to happen.

However, I recently installed a couple of extensions, that seemed to work okay. (I had downloaded the installers, and then installed them from the files.) Then, when I tried to install them from the same files on the second system, it told me that they were incompatible with 29.0.1, and that they could not be installed.

I want to re-enable the compatibility check on the system on which it seems to have been turned off. I've searched FF forums at length, but can't find any information on about:config or other settings that might affect this.

Sorry folks for asking a "dumb question" but here goes:

( preamble: I have started to read: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/995356?esab=a&as=aaq but that was for IE - so I ask myself why is it being asked in the Firefox forum, but anyway.....

I have seen these "weird" icons in the address bar too. Someone asked: What were they BEFORE you updated/upgraded to the new version? Fair enough question, but maybe like me the person didn't bother to note them and only noticed the "change" to a new icon and investigated (or tried to).

I have also seen a "Lego block" in there as well. Dunno what it means, but I hope nothing bad. end preamble )

Well folks, I am using FF 29.0.1 and I too have noticed this "Grey padlock" appear when I am in/on GMAIL too. The other thread was YAHOO, and I didn't want to contaminate their thread.

This site is a green padlock.

LUCKILY I worked out how to get the "View certificate" to work and now am stuck on how to attach the image. (I don't come here that often and so am not familiar with how to do things. Every forum is different.)

It looks ok, and it says it is from Google, but....... I am maybe missing something.

Not panicking yet, but help would be appreciated.
