I'm having a lot of problems with firefox and cannot figure out how to get help. It all started when I updated to 13. I get all kinds of advertising popups, I can't play a game on FaceBook called Farm Town at all, and I get a popup of AVG on the cookies that I can't get rid of. These issues are causing me to use Chrome quite often, although I like Fox better. I've searched and searched how to get help and find nothing. How can I get personalized technical help? These problems will not occur in Chrome at all. Thank you.

Do a check with some malware malware, analysis of programs on the Windows computer.

You need to scan with all programs, because each program detects a different malicious program.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before scanning.

Alternatively, you can write a check for an infection rootkit TDSSKiller.

    I fixed it! I used the string analyze function waiting in the Task Manager while opening a PDF file and have to wait 12 seconds... and it showed that the wait chain has been blocked by the Speech SDK. So I went to my Plugins of PDF from Adobe folder, which in my case is C:\Program Files (x 86) \Adobe\Acrobat DC\Acrobat\plug_ins and delete the plugin ReadOutLoud.api. (I had to close all instances of Acrobat DC first, and I had to also click the UAC Popup Windows application approval raised to remove the plugin) Now... instant Adobe Acrobat DC charge!

  • I reinstalled adobe CS6. my other macs, I had a printer named 'Adobe PDF', that I could choose that as my printer and a dialogue box came up, I named the file and the location.  I can't figure out how to get this done on my new mac.  Help

    I reinstalled adobe CS6. my other macs, I had a printer named 'Adobe PDF', that I could choose that as my printer and a dialogue box came up, I named the file and the location.  I can't figure out how to get this done on my new mac.  Help

    There are two ways to create a PDF on a Mac:

    (1) you can use the default method, which is to choose file > print. Click on the PDF menu below on the left, then click on save as PDF. This lets you name and save the PDF file using the mechanism of OS X to create PDF files.

    (2) in the same menu, you can save in Adobe PDF format. It runs a script (a little slow) that lets choose you what PDF settings file you want to use. This is the Adobe-developed mechanism that replaces the old Virtual PDF printer.

  • I can't get into my yahoo favorites. I spent time with AT & T and the conclusion, they have come to is that it can be a problem with Firefox and yahoo. Help please

    I use a laptop computer HP NOT mobile. Whenever I try to go into my favorites YAHOO that it asks me to sign in which I'm doing nothing does not. AT & T came to the conclusion that maybe it's that Firefox and Yahoo do not work together. I just downloaded the latest versions of Firefox and toolbar yahoo again without success. Is there something with Firefox that prevents me to enter my yahoo Favorites?

    You have the box checked for automatic private browsing mode? In this case, when you open the Options dialog box, the drop-down list usually said "conservation rules: don't remember history. In this mode, Firefox does not retain your Yahoo cookie between sessions, which would explain the problem.

    Note: If you uncheck this box and start in normal mode, you can still create private windows via the menu or with Ctrl + Shift + p.

    If the problem is not caused by a parameter of Firefox, it is possible that an add-on or software external is clear your cookies between sessions.

    Hi ChrisNiven,

    1 Windows operating system you are using?

    2 have you tried to update the Nvidia drivers?

    Method 1:

    Check if there are problems with the DirectX installed on the system. Use DXdiag to troubleshoot all direct X related issues. DxDiag ("DirectX Diagnostics") is a diagnostic tool to test the features of DirectX and the problems of video material - or sound-related.

    For more information, you can consult the following article:

    Diagnosing basic problems with DirectX

    Method 2:

    You can also consult the following thread link and try the steps to solve the problem.


    You can see the following link support Nvidia to download the latest version of the drivers.

  • Problems with firefox and new Seagate SSHD

    I recently installed a new Seagate 1 TB SSHD into my computer, it's the new generation of hard drives with built in 8 GB SSD cache. I cloned my old install and everything seemed to work ok

    I use firefox with Yahoo answers and regularly answering questions. If I answer a question and press on submit my answer is displayed correctly. If I then try to change my answer and press on submit again that my initial response is displayed and not my answer updated. If I change my answer once again the update response appears after one or two attempts. It seems that there is a problem with the way firefox and this new drive interact with each other.
    I uninstalled firefox and deleted all associated data files and made a new installation that actually no difference
    I am running version FF 26
    Windows 7 64 bit
    4 GB OF RAM
    AMD Athon x 2 64 6000 dual core

    The problem did not happen with my original hard drive, nor is it with Internet explorer or Chrome
    I have suggestions would be appreciated.

    David Gaguine

    Thanks, but my router does not have a cache and it does not explain why the problem started with the SSHD and is OK with a standard SATA drive.

    Clear the history after that outputs FF has not worked.

    I think I'll contact seagate support and see if they have similar reports or waiting for the firmware for the drive update


    P.S. I have now to lower my head in shame, I discovered that the problem occurs on other machines, it must be something to do with my network or on the Yahoo site itself not FF or new hard drive happily.

    I apologize for wasting everyone's time

  • Problem with Audio and cannot restore. Error code 0 x 80070002.

    Have a Gateway FX 6860 under Windows 7 Home Premium.  Audio worked fine in the morning but in the afternoon (no updates being installed), I noticed that the sound speaker in the start bar had a red X.  Thought I had cut the sound, but the button mute on the keyboard had no effect (any more than the volume upward or down keys).  Roll the mouse on the icon gives "no speakers or headphones are connected.  Tried researching this issue after trying to restore the system (System Restore did not complete with each available computer restore point was [gave me every time the error code 80070002 x 0]).  I tried to uninstall and reinstall the device driver (no effect), I tried my repair disc (nothing), run a sfc/scannow (results indicate that there is no corrupted files).  I have connected my ipad for output wire to test the speakers (integrated in HP 2009 monitor) to check the wiring and speakers (they worked).  I ran the antivirus (AVASTI) software with no results.  Before that I have to empty everything and recover the system; is there anything else I could try?  Don't want to go through the entire re - install everything systematics for something simple.  What I forget?

  • the poster of the Bookmarks window is too big (suddenly occurred with the new version). I can't figure out how to get the smaller screen. Zoom does not work on the display of the menu bookmark.

    I have the 4 version, just download and a Mac OS 10.6. w. 7.
    Display the bookmarks (when I pull to the low "bookmarks") is far too broad. I can't understand how to reduce the display size. The window is not persistent, so I can't yet get you a screenshot.
    Thank you, Sara

    It seems that there is a change in Firefox 4, where the width of the drop-down list is now determined by the length of the longest bookmark name in the displayed folder. Versions previous of Firefox would be to shorten a long name like this and add an ellipsis to indicate the name has been truncated.

    Sorry, I don't know how to change it otherwise that you advise to change the name of this long bookmark name and make it less wordy. Just scroll to the bottom of the list of bookmarks in this vast folder until see you the culprit, then right click on that bookmark and open properties and change the line of name at the top of this dialog box.

  • getURL problem with Firefox and Safari

    I use getURL to GET and SEND on a named window. The window is the parent window of the pop-up window that contains the swf file.

    I checked if the window is named what I think it is, (I use javascript window.name = "myname" in the main window) and I use the name of the window in the getURL.

    Properly applies to the GET and messages to the window called when I use IE or Opera, but Firefox and Safari spawn new windows every time, instead.

    Is this a known problem, and is there a work around?

    Suggestions would be very appreciated!

    Thank you!

    So, I thought about it.

    It was a security issue. If the pop-up window and the main window are not in the same domain (which was the case here), Firefox and Safari won't let not the child window target parent. Instead, it creates a new window. I don't know why this would be considered to be best in terms of security, but it's what he does.

    The solution was to make the popup has the same domain as the parent.

  • New to Livecycle - I can't figure out how to get my Add/Remove buttons to work

    Hi, I took a course intro Livecycle of work and now I'm supposed to create all these new forms in Livecycle. I have tried to teach me but am a complete road block on how to get my line Add/Remove buttons to work. I have script them and I think that the first row of the table must be in a subform for them to work? but I can't do it all...

    Any help would be much appreciated


    There is here an example that leads you through the steps of construction of the dynamic tables: http://assure.ly/gk8Q7a.

    If you use the table object, you don't need to wrap in a subform. If you select the rank in the hierarchy, you can go to object > Binding palette and assign Repeatable.

    The other question is to ensure that the form is saved in a dynamic form of XML in the Save - as dialog box.

    Hope that helps,
