Firefox does not, despite having worked before, and I can not install or uninstall upgrades.

Using Windows 7 Home Premium - have not had a problem prior to the opening of Firefox, but now it does not open. When I try to uninstall or install the update I get the message that I need to first close Firefox - it does not run and I rebooted and use management tasks without success. FAQ solutions all seem to require that you be in Firefox, which is not possible under these conditions.

    Hello

    Some Firefox problems can be solved by performing a clean reinstall. This means that you remove Firefox program files, and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:

    Note: You can print these steps or consult them in another browser.

    1. Download the latest version of Firefox from http://www.mozilla.org office and save the installer to your computer.
    2. Once the download is complete, close all Firefox Windows (click on quit in the file menu or Firefox).
    3. Remove the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations, by default:
      • Windows:

        • C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
        • C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla Firefox
      • Mac: Delete Firefox in the Applications folder.
      • Linux: If you have installed Firefox with the distribution-based package manager, you must use the same way to uninstall: see Install Firefox on Linux. If you have downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder firefox in your home directory.
    4. Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
      1. Double-click on the downloaded Setup file and go through the steps in the installation wizard.
      2. Once the wizard is completed, click to open Firefox directly after clicking the Finish button.

    More information on the resettlement of Firefox can be found here.

    WARNING: Uninstaller or the use of Firefox and not run a third remover as part of this process, because who could permanently delete your Firefox data, including but not limited to, extensions, cache, cookies, bookmarks, personal settings and passwords saved.

  • Firefox does not install the Adobe Flash plugin

    Videos flash and flash Web sites no longer work in my Firefox browser. After you install the plugin and restarting the browser flash still does not work or even appear in the list of installed plugins. As far as I can tell that this is not a problem with Adobe Flash that I can still use it with Google Chrome.

    FYI - IE, Firefox and Chrome use different versions of the player in order to work in 1 browser Flash means nothing to the others.

    I would download the installer, close Firefox, uninstall Flash (from programs and features), restart the computer and try the installation program.

  • I don't have a navigation bar and firefox does not open in safe mode to return to the default configuration. Does not work reinstall. Any help please.

    I have no navigation bar since I closed it to have more space on the screen. It will not re - open. Firefox does not open in safe mode, but immediately opens in normal mode with the new configuration incorrect, so I can't reset to default configuration. I deleted Firefox and re-installed and it always opens with the same faulty configuration. Why doesn't Firefox give me the safe mode dialog box, why can I not re - open the navigation bar, and how I can do those two things, please? Firefox is currently unusable for me without a navigation bar with no access to the default settings in safe mode. I can't search the extensions that I use since I have no navigation bar to go to tools, modules, Extensions.

    This has happened

    Each time Firefox opened

    I closed the navigation bar to make more space on the screen and I could not re - open.

  • I said that I have to install Chrome to place an order at Walmart. What should the Chrome that Firefox does not work?

    I have placed several orders of Wal-Mart before today using Firefox without any problems. But today, nothing but problems. I tried for more than 4 hours, get this order to cross. I told cat line of Walmart and told me that I have to install Chrome to place an order. They don't answer when I asked if Walmart belonging to Chrome.

    I deleted the cookies and cache and restarted but none of this has worked. While Chrome has that Firefox does not work? I tried Chrome before and he hated and had a devil of a time he get off my computer. I don't want to go there again.

    I have attached a copy of the message that I get seems to indicate that it is a problem within Wal-Mart, but I said that it was with my browser.

    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and using Firefox 40.0.3.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Thanks for your reply. I just figured out the problem.

    All started when I tried to pay my order at 13:00 this afternoon. I am persistent and don't give up easily. Five hours later, I found an error in their programming, which allowed me to add an item to my shopping cart that was a purchase in store only. But then when I went to pay for it, he became confused and wouldn't let me order but didn't tell me why.

    I solved by moving all items in the basket to saved for later and then add one at a time, trying to get to the car after each addition. It took a while because there are 20 items. He had the same problem when I added the item in the store to the cart and tried to pay for it. So I deleted and purchased on Ebay.

    Now I know probably as much if not more than any of their populations of the Chat line that can only be read on a book script.

    It's a relief that I don't have to use Chrome. I really like Firefox and would not change.

  • Flash for firefox does not work

    I checked my computer and it says that flash works but when I go to play games I can't because msg says I need Flash. I've always been able to play the same games before now I can't. all parameters have remained the same, why is today different?

    When you are on the site where the game does not load, do you see a notification icon in the address bar?

    Notification plugin icon looks like a small Lego block, usually dark gray. If you click on it, it should tell you if the Flash is allowed for the page or if you need to.

    If the icon does not appear, Firefox does not recognize the code in the page. If it appears, and Flash is allowed, then the page may have a difficult time in commissioning.

    There is a problem with some Flash games does not not in Firefox 40. To see if the game you are playing is affected by this issue (asynchronous loading), you can try this modification of the parameters:

    (1) in a new tab, type or paste Subject: config in the address bar and press enter/return. Click on the button promising to be careful.

    (2) in the search above the list box, type or paste the IPC and pause while the list is filtered

    (3) double-click the preference dom.ipc.plugins.asyncInit to change its value from true to false

    I don't know which begins to take effect immediately, or if you leave Firefox and start it again.

    Return to the page with the game, then reload the page (you can click on the circular arrow in the address bar) to see if it will work now.

    A little luck?

    When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "start mode safe."

    If the problem is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, theme or hardware acceleration.
