For many file types, when I click to open/download a file and I select the option "Open with: application.exe" and also select "do this automatically for files like this from now on" the open with dialog box still appears every time. If I select "Save file" and "do this automatically for files like this from now on" the dialog does not appear again and the files are automatically saved. Why am I still asked every time what I want to do when I select the "Open with: " option? How can I fix this so that the dialog does not appear and the files are automatically opened with the selected application?

I am currently running Firefox 3.6.12 on Windows XP on an Acer laptop. Adobe Flash Player won't work through Firefox and sites say: "This plugin has been disabled" or "You need the latest Adobe Flash Player"-- I have updated it every time (changing the player version to "Other Browswers"). Flash has proven to work in the past but I'm not sure why it no longer does.

Also, I get this Error every time I open Firefox. I have to attempt to open Firefox 3 times in order for it to finally open because of this error:

getPlusPlus_Adobe_reg.exe - Application Error The instruction at "0x00000000" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read". Click on OK to terminated the program

Flash is however, working on Internet Explorer. I have tried uninstalling every Flash Player and reinstalling it for Firefox. I've resorted to enabling every video type of player on Firefox in an attempt to get videos and games working...

Firefox has a feature to remember my passwords, which is very useful. However, some sites mess with this so they won't save my passwords. In some cases these sites turn "autocomplete" off for the password field in their html; in other cases they appear to use some kind of javascript magic to stop me from saving my passwords.

First of all, why should websites try to stop me from saving my password? Do they really think its more secure if people have to write their passwords on stickynotes on their monitor to remember them--or worse, use the same password on all sites? I what way is it conceivably more secure? In any case it's MY business how I manage my passwords--not theirs!

I have had some success in battling evil sites that try to stop my from saving my passwords by editing the nsLoginManager.js file. But this is not convenient as I must keep doing this every time firefox gets upgraded, and it doesn't work for some sites like American Express which I think use some sort of javascript to stop me from doing what I want.

So my question is, how can I effectively make firefox remember ALL the passwords I want, when _I_ want to--and NOT obey evil websites that just want to practice CYA while actually making me LESS secure?

I'm running a web application written in XQuery (mostly) that returns XML data. For months that has been displaying as hierarchical XML structure, the same as if I opened an XML document with FF. Now, it just displays only the text content of the structure, and that's all run together. I have to View Page Source to see the XML.

Opening an XML document directly still gives me the desired structure display.

Running the same app in IE still displays the XML structure, so it's not a change in the app.

I assume it's just a setting somewhere, but I can't find it.

I had my favorite radio station bookmarked and could listen to it live while working on my laptop. For some reason, after updates to Firefox, the listen live component of the bookmark does not work anymore and I cant hear anything. I tried typing in the address manually instead of going through the book mark but that doesn't work either. I can access the website of the radio station but when I click on the "listen live" button it appears to load and does not "buffer" or present the play/pause buttons. Cant hear anything either. If I use Explorer instead, everything works fine.

Before the last update Firefox was wonderful! Now i cannot click a link without it being prevented and having to click allow. My Neopets and Facebook games were working perfectly but now they are not. I use my computer to play and for email and not much else and i would prefer to go back to the way things were before the last update. I know very little about computers ... i just want it back the way it was! Is it possible for someone to tell me, step-by-step in plain and simple language, what i need to do to clear out the last update?

Until recently I could reply/compose e-mails on my gmail account. Also the "Chat" window would be there.

I believe that after the 3.6.12 update unless I go to BASIC HTML view, I can't reply/compose e-mails. Nor does the CHAT option show.

I have tried two machines - each with FF (latest version) and both "fail". Using a machine with IE, I can reply/compose e-mails and I can see the CHAT list on the left of the screen.

I honestly hope it is not something I did, because it did work and I don't remember changing anything to stop it working.

I saw that someone suggested going to tools then options, etc...but when I open the tools menu there is no text so I do not even know where to click and even when some text appears it is not the full menu. I have tried reinstalling Firefox but this did not help.

For the past week everything I try to do on YouTube with Firefox has been extremely slow, sometimes near that of a dial-up connection. I've tried using all three browsers--IE8, Firefox, and Chrome--and the problem appears to be ONLY with Firefox. In fact, with Firefox over 90% of YouTube features will not work at all, including playback on "My Channel".

All three browsers function perfectly at all other web sites.

My videos are being inundated with SPAM promoting several different illegal download sites, yet when I try to report these as SPAM I repeatedly get a "500 Internal Server Error" with all three browsers. Please keep in mind that these messages are sent to me by YouTube, NOT the spammers. The only browser that will actually allow me to delete the message itself from the video is Chrome...both IE8 and Firefox are totally unresponsive to all options.

When trying to access my channel page (or ANY channel page) on Firefox (and ONLY Firefox), I repeatedly get the message: "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player. " However, playing videos in a separate tab is not a problem with any of the 3 browsers. Accessing my channel page or any other channel page is not a problem with either IE8 or Google Chrome.

I have verified that the latest versions of Flash Player and JavaScript have been installed and are functioning properly, and everything on YouTube operates properly on both IE8 and the lastest version of Google Chrome.

I have updated McAfee and run a deep, full-system scan. I've swept my registry with three different cleaners, and Secunia PSI shows no problems.

This is the second time in the past two months that YouTube has shut out Firefox almost totally.

What is going on?

The Import button under the File tab isn't live so I can't click it. Because of that, I can't import my Internet Explorer Favorites to Firefox. Why isn't my Import button live?

When I first loaded Firefox onto my computer, some of my IE Favorites were automatically copied to Firefox, but not all of them. I'm now trying to copy the rest of them to FF. What do I do?

And, yes, I read through the help section of FF and found the instructions to copy IE Favorites to FF, but being able to do the copy requires that the Import button be live.
