Firefox





Tony The Tiger
My firefox is not working properly. No web page that plays video is producing any sound. However, if I copy the url to Opera, Chrome or Internet Explorer (I have not tried to copy to my Safari browser yet), the same page plays with totally normal audio. This includes YouTube as well as things like network television shows that you can view at the likes of www.cbs.com. I called Hewlett Packard (I have a 2010 Pavilion DV7 with Windows 7) and they were the ones that prompted me to try other browsers. Once they confirmed it was working with other browsers, they suggested that I make sure that I have the latest versions of the addins and such like Adobe flash. I am not sure what other addins could be giving me the problem. Suggestions are welcome.

Your first check should probably be disabling each of the add-ons in turn, in case one of those is buggy or conflicting with another. Revert any settings you've changed since the last time everything was working fine. Clear out your cache / cookies on the off chance something there broke. *shrug*

It seems that whenever I use the HP DVD Play software, it screws up my Firefox audio. I have to reboot Firefox after using that software, which is not designed for Windows 7.

Did you install any extensions of firefox by mistake?                          
                                                     
May be some grease monkey script will cause that weired action.

I think that may problem of default application accociated with that video type or media type.

As per concern to youtube that videos are flv format, have to associate application for flv type in option of firefox.

Just check that which application is associated to flv format in firefox for that go to tools->options->applications



i hope above image may help you

How important is it to keep updateing to the latest fractional version. Going from 8.0 to 9.0 is surely worth doing, but is it really necessary to update from 9.0 to 9.0.1 to 9.0.2 and so on every time they make a minor revision to the latest available version?
rjraaz
Yes, that is not necessary to update for minor version changes. but sometimes these minor version change have security issues resolved that are most needed.

Firefox kept giving me grief so I gave up on it. Besides issues like that, I was having (still do if I use it) major issues with memory blow out. I use Chrome now.

New versions are not the problem, if you dont want to update just stop auto updating going through option panel. And in future if required to install check the update manually thats it.

I'm having a problem with Firefox 9.0.1. I'm unable login to some sites like Facebook. Keep telling email is not exist and recover the password. Works fine in Google Chrome.

Must be something wrong with Cookies.

Try to clear the cache in your browser. In firefox choose tools menu, then options -> advanced tab -> network and press Clear Now at offline storage section.

Firefox is now randomly going to the Yahoo! search page when I navigate to a new page a significant fraction of the time.

I uninstalled Chrome from my PC because I checked the Task Manager and saw like 5 chrome processes running.

Backup your extentions and settings with mozbak and run a clean reinstall.

My limited experience of Firefox 9 is that it seems to be noticeably faster than Firefox 8.

So you know, for all the low opinions of Firefox going around, I think they are still trying.

They may not be trying perfectly, but trying.

I am have recently upgraded my browser to Firefox 10.0.1 and it seems that the Yahoo redirect is now rearing its ugly head again. It is not as often as before, but it is often enough to be an annoyance and to start to piss me off.
