I cannot install extensions, they appear with "will be installed after you restart Firefox" even after that I restarted.

Hello

I cannot install extensions, they appear with "will be installed after you restart Firefox" even after that I restarted.

The 'Intermediary' folder is present and rest after a restart, but the extensions do not get installed. They show in the extensions page with the message "will be installed after you restart Firefox" and remain like that, no matter how many times I restart.

Any idea?

Under Firefox 24.0 Windows 8.1

Thank you very much
BD

P.S. Just tried to install the add-on "convenience store" before asking the question and I got an error saying that it cannot install because it cannot change the necessary file. (I did manually instead)

Advertisement

I tried to delete the files extensions.* nothing works. However, I deleted the addons.sqlite file and restarted my computer (computer not only Firefox) and that seemed to do the trick. Problem solved.

Thank you for your help, it is appreciated.

  • Cannot exit an application? Phone will not unlock after that that it is locked.

    IF this happened to me several times and I can fix it, usually by restoring my phone but I hate doing this, so I wonder if there is another way.

    I have an iPhone 5s and sometimes it will stay in an application and I can not click away from it or use my button home he will remain right in the app, but I am able to use this app perfectly well. If I block my phone during this time then it will stay locked and there is no way for the screen back but I know that the device is still on because siri talk from time to time. I tried to reset the lock now and the button "home" but it never works. my phone is also 100% right now so I can't wait to die.

    Looks like the home button does not physically.

  • KB955759 does not appear when I check the updates manually, but it appears with the yellow shield after you have enabled the automatic updates.

    original title: Windows Update acts confused - kb955759 does not appear when I check the updates manually, but it appears with the yellow shield after you have enabled the automatic updates.

    I just reset my CMOS settings, writing zeros for my hard drive, repartitioned, reformatted and used the recovery cd Gateway system to get my computer to Windows 98se - factory settings, except at the beginning of the recovery of the system, when it says "press any key for advanced options," I pressed a key and then I unchecked all the default (3rd party) applications including Norton and left only 2 checked: "Updated USB Hub" and "Windows Shutdown Supplement," while nothing has been installed, leaving only win98.
     
    Then I used my disc XP Home (SP2) update.  I, immediately after the upgrade to Windows XP, installed "Office XP with Frontpage, Developer Edition", then Norton 2012 before never connect to the internet.
    Then, I connected to the internet and continuously update of Norton, before ever hitting the Windows Update page. The first thing I did then was to activate Windows, and then activate the office.
    Then I hit the update of Windows "button" that says "get all your updates in one place... upgraded"Microsoft Update".  I, then, just kept hitting the page update and restart, until I find the SP3.  Then, I took a break, until the next day.
     
    I have an ADSL broadband, with a Linksys EtherFast PCI card.
     
    Then I got SP3, which installed without any problems.
    So I just kept "microsoft continuous update" manually (and reboot), until there is no more updates - EXCEPT, I always uncheck Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - which was the only screening at the final stop for the night.  I think that I ticked the box "don't ask me about this update".
     
    Then, in the morning, after you have enabled automatic updates, I noticed the yellow shield - Windows security icon (or whatever it's called), so I clicked on it and checked it was tellimg me was available [when I checked "Custom Install (advanced users)"].  What showed was 1 update - 955759 KB.
     
    After the problem, already at the reformat (months and months), see the yellow shield telling me there are updates available, which were already installed (before rebooting), I checked manually on the internet with IE 8, pressing alt, "T", "U".  There is no updated list.  Then I checked through my history of update (twice), and KB955759 had not been installed.
     
    My update setting is to let windows download ('important') updates, but let me choose when to install them.
     
     
     
    What is the right - Windows Update (NO update important reporting) Site, or the yellow shield (reports [a] kb955759 [update])?
     
    I can not yet confirm he is supposed to be an update for XP home kb955759, because I was unable to locate any detailed documentation on this 'thing' that protect the yellow safety seems to think is a significant update.

    Comment 1: To my rquest, a moderator merged your thread in the Sub-forum Win7 updates with your wire in the Sub-forum of updates of Windows XP 20 Feb-12, c. 07:50 UTC.

    Comment 2: If you will not contact the MS Support on this issue?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Just for the heck of it, I have disabled the automatic updates, cleared my browser cache, checked manually, updates from microsoft (windows) and found none (with the exception of software malware removal tool windows [which I have not installed]).  Then, I turned the automatic updates on, and without even being connected to the internet, the yellow shield popped up with the kb955759 "update"...

    Repost...

    1. If you open Internet Explore (only!) to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and run a CUSTOM scan, KB955759 appears in results?... If so, you manage to install it and/or security updates available?

    2 after no. 1 above [<>], is the 'yellow shield' icon appears in the Notification area (on the left of your clock)?  .. and if yes, by clicking on the 'yellow shield' icon tells you that KB955759 or any other updates is ready-to-be-installed?  .. .and if so, you manage to install it?

    3 after doing 1 # & #2 above [<>], is KB955759 or any other updates offered as a ready-to-install update when you go off your computer?  .. .and if so, you manage to install it?

    ... I guess that clearing the browser cache does not erase 'downloaded' updates.

    Nope. If you want to clear the queue of the update...

    OPTION A:

    1. stop the automatic updates service:

    Start > run > (type or copy/paste) services.msc > click OK
    Double-click automatic updates > click stop
    (Stopping the service will take a moment)

    2 remove the contents of the download folder:

    Start > run > (type or copy/paste) %windir%\SoftwareDistribution > click OK

    Open the download folder and delete its content
    Close the window.

    3. start the automatic updates service:

    Start > run > (type or copy/paste) services.msc > click OK
    Double-click automatic updates > click Start
    (Starting the service will take a moment)

    OPTION B:

    1. open Internet Explorer (only!) to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/910336 [don't know the titles, etc..]

    2. make disappear/close the Troubleshooter automatically pop up.

  • What are the causes of the log of user account on missing cursor in Windows XP? I have two trays of office that they have this same problem. If you restart them the cursor returns?

    What are the causes of the log of user account on missing cursor in Windows XP? I have two trays of office that they have this same problem. If you restart them the cursor returns?

    Hi DaddyJeff,

    1. don't you make changes before the show?
    2. are you referring to the cursor in the area of user password on the login screen of Windows?
    3. when the cursor goes missing, the mouse pointer works on screen?

    It is difficult to say what is causing this problem. If the mouse pointer freezes or stops working, then we recommend you to reinstall the mouse. To do this, try the following steps:
    a. sign in to Windows.
    b. Click Start, click Run, type devmgmt.msc, and then click ok.
    c. in the list of objects, expand mice and other pointing devices.
    d. right click on the sub element and click on uninstall.
    e. unplug the mouse and plug it back.
    f. the Device Manager, select an item in the list, click the Action menu, click scan for hardware changes.
    g. check if the mouse is detected, if so, then install it.

    See mouse USB which is connected to a USB 2.0 hub is not detected by Windows XP

    if the problem persists, restore the computer to an earlier time. See How to restore Windows XP to a previous state

  • I am trying to embed vimeo files but they appear with black borders on the left and right edges

    On vimeo, videos are in the right proportions. But as soon as I bring the videos in Muse with a video widget, a black border appears on the left and right sides.

    Help with the help of Adobe Muse CC

    The iframe that contains the video is set on a height of 650px. The proportions of your video is 16:9. Width of the video is of 1155. 1155px 650px x is 16:9, so your video is displayed correctly.

  • Cannot install Flash Player for Firefox

    I am running Windows XP it with SP4.  IE and the latest version of Firefox are installed.

    In IE and Firefox, trying to install Flash Player with the standard binding, I get an error message in a small window opens, the title "getPlus + (R): error," text 'Cannot load a GUI,' box 'OK '.  I got this by locating a stand-alone installation for IE, who uploaded a file to install it on my computer.  However, this does not work in Firefox, even when access to this link from Firefox.  The file runs, but Flash Player still shows as not installed in Firefox.

    I can't find any program separate stand-alone installers for Flash Player for Firefox.

    This error seems to be generated by the Adobe getPlus product installer.  My thought was to uninstall the Adobe installer and try again.  However, the Adobe installer appears in the list of installed programs, accessible via the Control Panel, BUT by clicking on the button to uninstall the program does nothing.  The program is still present.  I can't find a location for the installer from Adobe on my hard drive.

    Hi Chris, I'm very well know the DLM/getPlus/getPlusPlus/NOS. :-) I see that you are too much now :-) Most users have no problem removing DLM to Add/Remove/programs and features through Control Panel.

    There are a number of things to check. Using IE, go to tools > Internet Options. Click settings, and then view the objects. There that anything appearing on the above?

    When you tried to delete the DLM, were using the administrator account?

    Now, using the start SEARCH, enter in the "part of the name of" gp.ocx and note where it is and right click and delete it. Then, run a SEARCH on gp.inf and do the same thing.

    Did you uninstall Flash Player using the Adobe uninstaller program then try again to install FP in FF?

    I have some info Add ' l on the DLM, etc and will try to get it.

    Thank you

  • Cannot install point. Restart the application and re-download your purchase.

    A user came to my office. We have updated the app on my iPad. Worked well. Tried it on his iPad. Got the error. Same WiFi connection within minutes following one another.
