  • eBay sidebar does not work in Firefox beta 20.0.

    The sidebar of eBay does not work with Firefox Beta 20. I can navigate its tabs, but cannot get any content or connect to eBay with it. He worked until a recent firefox update. I tried to uninstall the sidebar and reinstall but nothing has changed. I have just updated Firefox to version than 20.3 Beta but there is no improvement with the side bar of the eBay on it. Please advise on a solution I use eBay most of the time box.

    Sounds as if this add-on may need to be updated for Firefox 20; Contact the developer of this add-on.

    In the meantime, if you use "mission critical" or "must have" addons you would be better to use the final version of Firefox and stay away from the beta version.

  • Why my sidebar does not work?

    Recently my sidebar on my Vista Ultimate x 64 Edition acted crazy.  The gadgets wouldn't stay where I put them, I did a virus scan and now, the sidebar comes up, but when I left-click on it, it says that the sidebar does not and gives me the option to restart, which I tried, then after a while, it gives me the option of waiting for the sidebar answer or close the sidebar , and I'm not very familiar with the sidebar...  I am quite computer savvy and can do more things with Vista and Win7, but it left me speechless...  Any help you guys can give me to help with this problem would be greatly appreciated...  Thanks for your time and your help and I look forward to your reply...

    Thank you

  • Clock Windows Sidebar does not work

    Hi Bob,

    You "shouldn't" have problems, roll back to IE 7.

    If you are worried, you can always do a system restore, which exterminates the any software installed after the date of restoration.

    Here is a link on how to do a system restore.

  • How to make the default visible bookmarks. response on Firefox Help "What happened to the bookmarks toolbar?" does not work.

    I want to have my favorites in the left pane of the default desktop, when I connect in firefox, as before. the solution proposed in the firefox help page "What happened to the bookmarks toolbar?", i.e. to check "bookmarks toolbar" in the drop-down display-toolbars menu, does not work.

    can you suggest an alternative?

    I use firefox on a macbookpro with os10.6.6 4.0b11

    The bookmarks toolbar has nothing to do with the Bookmarks Sidebar (on the left side of the browser window). {Ctrl + B} open/close the bookmarks bar. If you close Firefox with the open bookmarks bar, it should be open when you launch Firefox, next time. If it does not work like that in your profile file localstore.rdf file is probably damaged.

  • Videos and games does not work, Mac Snow Leopard

    It is a problem, that I actually had for a while, but it never really touched a large part that I thought it was important. Now it is just boring.

    In fact, some video players and games online does not work. Most video players outside of YouTube will not work. The player will load, but the video never does. For example, the last video with that I got in trouble is the video player of Nickelodeon for the legend of Korra. When I try to watch that, I get a black box and an image of type "Loading" appears, swirls around once and then disappears. After that, it becomes unresponsive. This is typical of many, but not all, video players, I met on the web.

    I don't know if it's related, but I also had problems with various games. Often times, they work very well until at some point, as the end of a level, transition and then they will become numb. A good example here is the game Bloons Tower Defense 4. It is a game that I know was on my old system. But now, when it loads the level, it freezes before loading the tours available to place and reacts differently. An example is shown below. The box top-left question mark in the right sidebar should reveal a dart monkey and my money of departure must be filled, but instead, the game crashes to the top. I had similar blockages on a number of games, so I am sure that the problem is not just with this game.


    As I said, I had this problem for awhile now. I have updated Flash and my browsers several times since they started. I have these problems in all my browsers (Safari, Opera, Camino, Firefox), there seems to be a problem with Flash. I also tried to uninstall and reinstall flash, and disable all other plugins browser.

    I use a MacBook Pro with Macintosh OS X 10.6.8 leopard snow, 2.53 GHz Intel Core i5, with Flash Current browsers: Firefox 11.0, Opera 11.61, Camino 2.1.2 Safari 5.1.5

    Any ideas what I might be dominant?

    These errors make me think that Flash has problems to write to the folder were Flash cookies are stored (LSO, sharedobject).  On Mac, it's

    • ~\Library\Preferences\Macromedia\Flash flash
    • ~\Library\Caches\Adobe\Flash flash

    You can check the permissions for these folders?  You might want to run check the permissions on your disk (, and then delete the ~\Library\Preferences\Macromedia folder and the folder of player of ~ \Library\Caches\Adobe\Flash.
