I love FR! A FReeper asks for help and nearly 50 responses in half an hour, including two that actually fix the problem!

(And no Hellen Thomas pictures, either!)

Try this.

Go to HELP on the menu bar. Click on TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION.

Click on RESET FIREFOX to default mode.

The only big issue I have with the later versions of Firefox (20+) is that it continually crashes with the built-in Windows 7 Speech Recognition ... For now, I end up composing elsewhere and then pasting. I’ll have to consider Dragon Naturally Speaking as an option.

It isn’t Firefox. It is Windows. Which, although I am stuck with it, sucks. Unlikely. I'm on a Mac.

Oh snap!

I've been having problems with FF shutting down all the time without warning. Fixed it by downloading the beta version.

Now if I could just get rid of the ad links on every page (I have downloaded several blockers but none do the trick).

No “shorts within my shorts” if you will.

And most of my shorts that have no shorts in them have also got very big holes in the seat.

I only post naked on Lepetomane’s birthday.

I got rid of Norton, McAfee, etc...and run MS Security Essentials.

Nothing gets by it, unlike other AV programs.

BTW, I’m still running WXP SP3 as I refuse to install those bloated Operating Systems like Vista/MS7 on my PC.

I also use an Android 4.2.2 Tablet for much of my browsing and email.

The browser (and for that matter, any application) should be compatible with the operating system, not the other way around. Don’t blame Windows for programmers who fail to comply with the specs required by the OS.

I had some warning a few weeks ago. Got the update and it has been fine since.

Looks like some type of malware. I would download and run Malware Bytes and check that your anti-virus is up to date and not turned off.

No, you’re good. Minimaliat is French for minimalist. I think.

I’m flugrent in the Froggish Linguage.

Minimaliat was one of their minimalist painters. But you don’t hear about him a lot because he got too big.

I just had to download and start using this thing because Fulfillment By Amazon (although you won’t find this out just by simply trying to use their website) doesn’t “accept” Safari!

My Foxfire seems to work after a fashion, but it’s the last word in inelegance, looks like some cheaply made kid’s toy that’ll break by 10AM Christmas morning, and does not inspire confidence on any level I’m aware of. It works for me at FBA, as much as anything does.

Having ranted all that, Foxfire was still working without notices such as yours as of 2AM last night as I finally cracked the code at FBA - I think - after two weeks of struggle. Celebrated with some fine Ouzo 12, no hangover, feeling rather content that I won’t have to use it again until I want to make another shipment of books to the losers at FBA. Am exploring better fulfillment services - if successful, I’ll trash Foxfire.

I was having a lot of problems and I decided to uninstall and then reinstall Mozilla. It seemed to work.

Mozilla / Firefox is okay as long as you run that “Stop Script” program with it.

DO NOT PRESS OK!!!

IGNORE IT!!

It’s telling you to turn off some of your protective protocol switching, and that is always suspect!

The way the word ‘behaviour’ is spelled, indicates it is a foreign national writing this, and not someone at Firefox.

Fix the "Could not initialize the application's security component" error message

Google may not be your friend but it is damned handy for finding solutions to problems that others have encountered before.
