Every time I open firefox, "plugin check" opens. Even after I installed and updated all plugins, the plugin-check appears whenever firefox opens. After updating all the plugins I restarted my pc, reset the browser and checked to make sure that my home page has not been changed the firefox plugin change, disabled all my plugins and even tried blocking the website via HOSTS.

I am fully capable of checking to see if my browser and plugins are up-to-date and I don't appreciate the unnecessary waste of time with this plugin-check running every single time the browser opens. Similar to updates, this should be an OPTIONAL check not FORCED and there should be a simple way to disable it without having the browser open an extra blank tab or requiring the user to edit the about:config to work around it.

I am a professor and frequently need to open pdfs of academic journal articles from electronic databases. Within the last two or three weeks, when I try to do this using Firefox, only the first page of the pdf displays and the rest are blank. In addition, a bar appears across the top with the message "This pdf file may not display properly." So I have had to switch to Internet Explorer to open the files and do my research. What is going on and how can I fix it so I can open pdf files from the Web in Firefox and have them display properly?

After rebooting my computer over the weekend I saw that my Yahoo Toolbar was missing (as was the ability to open a 2nd window). Tried reinstalling toolbar because my PC thinks I have the latest version already installed. How can I install it fresh? Or rather how do I uninstall the missing toolbar so that I can then install it anew? I'm running XP Pro on this PC. I use the toolbar for accessing many sites as well as for the Bookmarks. Please tell me what I've done to cause this so that I may avoid this inconvenience in the future. Thank you.

A couple of days ago, I had to backup, erase and reinstall everything on my computer in order to fix a bug. I made sure to save my Firefox bookmarks, and re-added them after transferring Firefox back over to my computer from the external hard drive when I had backed it up. I also had to re-add all the search engines that I rely on regularly in my Search bar. But for some reason, Dictionary.com and Google Image Search would not show in the Search Bar, even after adding them and restarting Firefox. Can anyone help?

I selected PRIVATE BROWSING to to some security checking, Now I want to return to NON PRIVATE browsing in FF v: 19.0.2? And it's grayed out and cntrl+shift+P doesn't work either.

This function should be built in like previous versions.

How do I return to STD or NON PRIVATE browsing. Yes, I'm the only one who uses my PC and I'm over 21.

cheers,

Since I upgraded Firefox from v19 to v20, the program does not respond at all when I click on any bookmark or manually enter a web address in the URL address bar.

It does not time out waiting for a connection and there is no "connecting to" message in the status bar. Nothing happens at all.

I can run Chrome and IE 10 on the same machine to connect to the internet without problems. Only Firefox 20 has this problem.

Per one of the knowledgebase articles, I tried deleting the application rule for Firefox from my firewall software (Avast Internet Security) and re-adding the rule. This accomplished nothing.

The program is essentially dead. I'm going to try reverting to version 19 to see if that fixes the problem. In the meantime, version 20 is broken on my PC.

Firefox version: 20 Windows Version: Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 32 bit AV and Firewall Software: Avast Internet Security 7.0.1474

Has anyone else had this problem? Did you find a fix for it, other than reverting to the older version of the program?

I have had no problems with the browser until today. I'm on a Mac OSX 10.7.5 using Firefox 19.0.2.

Yesterday I used PrivacyScan like I usually do once a week and today I logged into all of my regular sites. Then I ran MacScan like I usually do. Suddenly, every time I quit Firefox and reopen it, I lose all of my logins to sites.

I don't have "Remember passwords for sites" checked because I use 1Password. In Privacy, I have "Accept cookies from sites" and "Accept third-party cookies" checked.

I've run PrivacyScan and MacScan plenty of times in the past without problems and I haven't changed any settings, so this is a complete mystery.

When I attempt to "pin" a top site from my bookmarks (drag then drop), per the instructions given by Firefox, it doesn't pin it. All it does is open the page in a tab. I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix this?

Additional info: I also cannot pin the website while open because the "pin" thing that Firefox talks about in the top left corner doesn't appear. I'm running the latest version of Firefox with a Windows 7 (SP2) OS Platform, in the "default" theme. My homepage loads fine. If there's anything else you need to know, ask me.

Hi

Here's my problem

I wrote a text message in a forum site and pressed send. Then a new page is loaded saying there was an error and I should press the back button to reload the previous window.

I know from experience if I do this I will loose all the info I just wrote. However, if I reload the curent page, the info is sent again as I get a question asking if I want to resend the info. Unfortunately the problem then reoccur.

What I would like to do is to catch the info that is resent, i.e. my written text, so I can start all over and reuse it. The info is somewhere there inside the firefox cache, history or whatever.

How can I extract it?

Firefox version 19.0.2 on windows 7

Any help is highly appreciated!

Thank you, Thomas
