50 Firefox on Win7 refuses to open local files AND links to email Eudora

Hello, when I click on a link from any email and also when I double click on any file html on my desktop or anywhere else in my computer, absolutely nothing happens. It started when I upgraded to ff50. There was a similar question here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1147139 but this user received an error message and I don't get even those!

I also watched my troubleshooting page where it says Multiprocess Windows 0/2 (disabled by modules) so I don't know if it of relevant or not. This makes it very difficult for me to get any work done!

Yours Sincerely, Kaelkitty.

Weird! When I started FF this morning, I received the message "FF is responsible for your updates" - and now everything is back to normal! How weird! However, I am extremely relieved and it will mark this resolved.

    Here is my code...

    I have 3 files in my directory... When I run the code I can open a file and read it... but the while loop get blocked after the first iteration... can someone me help or give some indications

    try {}

    FileConnection fc = Connector.open("file:///store/home/user/documents/BSM/") (FileConnection); "

    If (fc.exists ()) {}

    Enumeration e = fc.list ();

    While (e.hasMoreElements ()) {}

    play this file
    StringBuffer stringBuff = new StringBuffer();
    try {}
    System.out.println ("opening file")-;
    System.out.println ("file name is:" + (String) e.nextElement ());
    fconnRead = Connector.open("file:///store/home/user/documents/BSM/(String)e.nextElement(),Connector.READ_WRITE) (FileConnection);

    {Finally

    try {}
    If (is! = null) {}
    is. Close();
    }
    System.out.println ("is closed...");
    } catch (IOException e1) {}

    E1. PrintStackTrace();
    }

    If (fconnRead! = null) {}
    try {}
    fconnRead.close ();
    } catch (Exception e) {}
    System.out.println (try ());
    }

    }

    }

    You can recode this treatment so that it uses only:

    e.nextElement ())

    Once a loop iteration.

    Directly at the start saying something like:

    String fileName = e.nextElement ());

    and use fileName everywhere in your loop.

    Also be aware that printStackTrace() will do nothing in your situation, it only works if you catch Throwable.  So make sure you something output all your catches exception and also have a catch (Throwable t) to catch the things you miss, as follows:

    {} catch (Throwable t)

    t.printStackTrace ();

    System.out.println ("Eception exception:" + t.toString ());

    }

    I think your code is thrown an exception and you don't see it.

    What version of Premiere Elements you are using and on what computer operating system is running?

    You cannot import a project file (.prel) in another.

    For now, generalize choice

    a. export your Timeline (your intro) content to a file saved on the hard drive of the computer. And then import that

    file in new projects by using the new project add Media/files and folders. See publish + Share/computer/and the other

    choices here to generate this file intro for later use in other projects.

    b. you can set up what is called a dummy projects - this is a project with nothing other than the intro file. And, at all times

    you want to use the intro, you open one of these saved dummy projects and add your media sources.

    A lot of things to discuss. Please fill in some details more and then we can refine the answer for your particular situation.

    Thank you.

    I want to open indesgin files exist in the folder I want to open all files one by one and I would like to conclude wht are the files I opened

    could someone tell me.

    You might want to be more explicit.

    I inserted "Close [Y/N]" because without this prompt, the script would do exactly what you ask: open all files and close them. Not very exciting, but if that's what you need, just remove the line 12 "if (confirm (" Close "+ str") == true).

  • Failed to open local files.

    I can't open any local files or folders in Firefox.

    I tried to open the following file types in Firefox: htm, html, txt, pdf, xpi.

    I tried to open files in one of the following ways:
    -Drag drop Firefox from the windows Explorer
    -Right click on the file in windows Explorer and open it with Firefox
    -Double-click on the files that would be opened in Firefox by default
    -"Open a file" from the file menu of Firefox

    I encountered this problem in Firefox 3.x and Firefox 4.0. When I try to open a file in Firefox, it creates a new tab with the path to the file in the address bar, but the file does not open.

    Any idea what could go wrong?

    Thank you

    You can have an extension (NoScript?) that blocks access to the local files.

    Start Firefox in Firefox to solve the issues in Safe Mode to check if one of the Add-ons is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Modules > appearance/themes).

    • Makes no changes on the start safe mode window.

    Yes, I can reproduce that. If you find and replace the < followed by one space with only < and then reload the page, Firefox he sees now in HTML format. Apparently, these spaces makes a huge difference.
