Hello, I have spell checking Disabled in Tools > Options > Advanced. I was recently typing a message in a bulletin board style forum, and suddenly saw the red wiggly line which typically indicates a misspelled word. The forum has no spell check feature. It lasted for 2 or 3 minutes, then stopped.

My current theory is that I accidentally enabled spell checking by inadvertently striking some particular key or keys. However, I can't find any info, which indicates that spell checking can be requested on a one-time basis, via key shortcut. While I think that would be a nice feature, it does not appear to currently exist.

So my questions: Is there such a feature? Does anyone have any idea if this sudden and unintentional spell check behavior might be traced to Firefox?

Thanks for your help :-)

Running Mac OS 10.6.8 Snow Leopard with Firefox 13.0. Was notified that I needed to install Adobe Flash/Shockwave to see video content.

Have loaded and updated to the newest version as of last week but Firefox has become buggy, freezing up but my pointer will still move. I continually get requests from Flashplayer to store data on my machine. Continually get error messages that I have to click DISMISS and the it works normally.

Just a regular PIA. I have uninstalled Flashplayer and the problems disappear but I cannot access a lot of content, especially videos.

IS there any alternative for Mac?


thanks,

Rob

have a corporate laptop that needs to use a corporate proxy when connected via VPN or physically to the corporate network. I use .pac format proxy in option of automatic proxy. When i connect to home network same proxy acts like no proxy, and in corporate lan it work as corporate proxy. But from home network when i connect corporate vpn then something go wrong. I can only access corporate links, not any exernal links like google. When i select RELOAD option in automatic proxy, then i am able to access internal as well as external links also. I assume when i connect to VPN, firefox do not reload proxy which he should be doing whenever netwok change take place, and that should be automatic. I have tried "reloadPAC" option with PrefBar tool, but again it's manual option. I want to automate it, like something done on OS level, which can trigger reload option whenever i connect VPN.

Any suggestion?????

After both firefox and flash upgraded to the newest versions i've found i have no video for certain flash sites. Youtube works fine but sites like metacafe.com don't.

I've tried rolling back to firefox 13.0.0. I've aso tried rolling flash back to 11.2 and 10.3 to no avail. I have also tried disabling protected mode for flash, still no video. I have done a complete reinstall of both firefox (including deleting my profile data) and flash, but it still won't work.

The only time i get video is when i restart firefox in safe mode. However when i restart in normal mode with all addons disabled i get no video. I don't have realplayer installed either.

Anyone got any ideas as to what I could try that i haven't already?

Firefox keeps freezing and using 50% cpu and memory usage shoots up real fast and carries on going till it uses up all there is left. Most of the time it's when there's an auto update of anything addon, plugin or ff but not just neccessarily then! I find out it's happened when there's been an update after i restart and an extra webpage comes up with the particular addon/plugin/ff update. I have to restart most of time because nothing sorts it out. I'm using windows xp with the latest update of ff 13.0.1 it's not this version because it's been happening for a while. And it never started when i added a particular addon or plugin or when i added a new app to my pc either. Any idea as to what this may be or how i'd sort it out?

Cheers

Each time I try to download something, the download generally stops every few MB (random amount, sometimes 10MB, sometimes 100MB, etc). The problem happens no matter which website the download comes from.

The strange thing is that Firefox does not tell me the download has failed, or even that it has paused. It shows the same download rate as it left off when it was running, along with the estimated time of completion.

For example, if I try to download a 500MB file, the download would start just fine. I would get an estimated download rate of 1.8MB/s and an estimated time of a minute or two. When the download stops, it does not change at all. It still displays my download rate at 1.8MB/s along with an unchanging estimated time.

The download continues if I click the pause and resume button, but it eventually pauses again after it finishes downloading another few MB of data.

Can you help?

A week ago I lost the ability to log in to my banking site (BBVA Compass). After submitting my username, it USED to then ask for my password on the subsequent screen. Now, it dies with a screen that shows "please wait", never gets beyond that. Looking in the error panel I see countless error messages for "error in parsing value" "declaration dropped", concerning a host of variables in CSS, such as radius, background, background image, etc. I CAN log in easily with MSIE. I have killed cookies and history, deleted and reinstalled FF, disabled the few add-ons I use, no joy. I have searched on these terms in "FF Help" and found some comments about these, but nothing that resolves the problem. This happens on several sites, I am including one.
