The youtube download add-on has worked like a champ, then suddenly today when I try to download a video, I get "0 bytes." At first, I thought this might be because we just got a new cable modem yesterday, but I've now seen references to youtube changing their site within the last day and that this has caused the problem. Unfortunately, the one thread I saw on this listed the question as "solved" because someone linked to a third-party plugin, but that only works for Windows. I'm a Mac user. Is there hope that Firefox will soon offer an update of the video downloader that plays nice with youtube? Or was my first suspicion, that the brand new cable modem, might be the issue?

When I'm on a page with multiple links (ie. Google Search, Craig's List, etc), and I click on a link, then return to the search page, Firefox doesn't show the visited links in purple. As a result I can't see which links I've visited, which makes browsing very difficult on some sites. I've updated my Color Settings to show visited links in purple, but it's not applying. What might be causing this?

I have firefox 3.6.10 installed on my mac os 10.5.8 (with no add-ons.. at least none that i am aware of as I have only downloaded the browser). Recently it has started doing strange things, particularly in facebook, ebay & paypal. like it will sometimes (not always but its getting quite frequent) show text only & in a completely different layout.. or jumbled all over the top of other text.. Or it will show the image & upper ebay part of a listing but not the actual description from the seller.. I have opened safari & its doing the same thing.. maybe even worse (though i do have a quite old version of safari as i never use it & thus never update it). All this makes me think i must be missing an update of something firefox & safari use to download pages correctly, but when i check software update nothing seems to be internet specific that i need to update.. any ideas please?

When I try to open a local php file on my MAC hard drive with FF 3.6.8, the save file dialog box opens instead. It says: You have chosen to open index.php which is a TextEdit.app Document. I do not have this problem with Firefox 3.5.11.

I have tried: opening the file directly from Firefox as well as double clicking the file (which is the most common way).

I have also tried changing the file "open with" preference to "open with Firefox." That did not work either.

Any help on this would be appreciated. I'm on a MAC OS 10.5.8

I have a WatchGuard XTM appliance. This is a security firewall. It has the capability of unencrypting https traffic for inspection and encrypting it again. To have it work for my Mac I had to import a certificate from the appliance and add it to Keychain. Safari now works. Next question - How do I add this cert to Firefox (3.6.8) for Mac. It's easy for PC. Please see below:

Import a PEM Format Certificate with Mozilla Firefox 3.x

Mozilla Firefox uses a private certificate store instead of the operating system certificate store. If clients on your network use the Firefox browser, you must import the certificate into the Firefox certificate store even if you have already imported the certificate on the host operating system.

When you have more than one Firebox or XTM device that uses a self-signed certificate for HTTPS content inspection, clients on your network must import a copy of each Firebox or XTM device certificate. However, the default self-signed Firebox or XTM device certificates use the same name, and Mozilla Firefox only recognizes the first certificate you import when more than one certificate has the same name. We recommend that you replace the default self-signed certificates with a certificate signed by a different CA, and then distribute those CA certificates to each client.

  1. In Firefox, select Tools > Options.
     The Options dialog box appears.
  2. Click the Advanced icon.
  3. Select the Encryption tab, then click View Certificates.
     The Certificate Manager dialog box appears.
  4. Select the Authorities tab, then click Import.
  5. Browse to select the certificate file, then click Open.
  6. In the Downloading Certificate dialog box, select the Trust this CA to identify web sites check box. Click OK.
  7. Click OK twice to close the Certificate Manager and Options dialog boxes.
  8. Restart Firefox.
