Since the upgrade to 5.0, firefox wants internet access to update every day. Why?

I have McAfee Antivirus Plus, and he tells me everyday since I've upgraded to 5.0 that firefox wants internet access for updating files. Before I upgraded, it didn't happen. What gives? Is - this legitimate, or something is weird going on here? Please notify.

By default, Firefox is to automatically check for updates every 24 hours.

  • Disable automatic updates, if you wish (Options > advanced > update) and manually check whenever you want (help > about Firefox > check updates)
  • Activate the authorization in McAfee for daily check to occur without informing you (contact McAfree for instructions)
  • Change the frequency of the automatic update checking
    • type of topic: config in the URL/address bar and press the Enter key
    • If you see a cautionary, accept it (promise to be careful)
    • Filter = app.update.interval
    • the default value is 86400 (one day in a few seconds, it's 24 x 60 x 60)
    • Right click on the name of the option in the bottom panel, click on 'Edit', enter your new value, click OK, close the topic: config tab
    • The change may take effect immediately, or you may need to restart Firefox for the changes to take effect, I don't know who.

  • Since the upgrade to 29. Firefox snags with a beachball that goes for seconds. How can I stop the problem?

    There are two updates very close together. I upgraded and now have 29,0. No matter if I'm going to an address, typing in an area, or waiting for a website to load, the "beach ball" Mac will turn for a few seconds before loading. I use the default theme. I have a minimum - (Xmarks and Trend micro), which have not been a problem before. Is there anything I can do besides turn off Add-ons?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I have the impression that its XMarks which is the cause... But the Trend Micro toolbar isn't right in my head. You can disable XMarks first, then if it's sunny, then Trend Micro is the problem and vice versa.

    I can't access my hotmail account among some other sites since the upgrade to 3.6.8 on my macbook. I get the following message: "the proxy server refuses connections.

    Try Firefox Safe mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode that disables certain parameters, disables most Add-ons (extensions and themes).

    If Firefox is open, you can restart Firefox Safe mode in the Help menu:

    • In Firefox 29,0 and above, click on the menu button

      click Help

      then select restart with disabled modules.

    • In previous versions of Firefox, click on the Firefox button in the upper left of the Firefox window and click help (or click on help in the Menu bar, if you do not have a Firefox button) and click on restart with disabled modules.

    If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Mode safe mode as follows:

    • On Windows: Hold down the SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • On Mac: Hold the option key during the startup of Firefox.
    • On Linux: Exit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox-safe-mode
      (you may need to specify the installation path of Firefox for example/usr/lib/firefox)

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

    If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to understand that one. Please follow the section Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems to find the cause.

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before you open Firefox for normal use again.

  • Since the upgrade Mozilla IE7 keeps indicating that it is NOT the browser by default although it is verified.

    IE7 and Mozilla worked very well, but since the upgrade to IE7 will not be the default browser. Every time I run the IE7 application it says it is not the default browser. How to solve this problem.

    If you click on start, then Control Panel, and then set the access to programs and default settings, can set you your default browser in there? Try Firefox, then assigning IE and see if that helps. So I guess he's THE desired form by default right?

  • Since the upgrade to 4.0.1 I have lost Norton toolbar.

    Since the upgrade to 4.0.1 I have lost Norton toolbar with secure identity, I spoke with Norton and they say I need to revert to a previous version because they have no solution.

This problem can be solved on my laptop to find norton (who works on another PC) or have I not other choices reloading to an earlier version of firefox and if yes what is the easest wy for this with no loss of bookmarks etc.

  • Since the upgrade limit "Screen time" no longer works.

    I understand that with Win 7 hours available per day has never worked.  So let's take that from the equation.

    Before the upgrade, I could sign in security for the family of any device to add or remove time.

    Since the upgrade, he can sign where he wants, regardless of my standing orders.

    I see some nonsense now, I have to refresh, by signing with your family on that. computer, using my connection and click Refresh.

    So are saying you that I can change is no longer permit time by logging parental control of another device?

    I have to sign into the computer, then connect to Windows security and THEN refresh?

    This is a great strength of parental control that I could change time since any device license and ask them to work.

    Now I add time, he cannot sign I revoke his time and nothing happens.

    Good news, I can (once again) to change the authorized beginning and end of time through parental controls of a device and apply to the other.  So at least I can change the time at will (since I can agree is more blocks of several times a day.)

  • Switching sites causes DW to cling to 255 seconds. Only since the upgrade to DW2015.

    Since the upgrade to 2015 DW, I had an unpleasant experience whenever I go to another site of edition. This problem only occurs when you switch to a large site, for example with 1000 lots of files. I didn't have this problem with DW2014, or any version dating back more than 10 years.

    I'm using the drop sites in the files tab. When I go to a large site (e.g., 13 000 files) I get the quick note where it says "Open Site" and where DW account files.

    Then I get the beach ball, I hear my CPU whirring upward, and I have to wait * literally * 4 or 5 minutes for the control back. Some DW made, it is not being cached, because if I move away to a small site (which is instant) and then switch back to the same large site, I have to wait another 255 seconds for control to return.

    Is there some "typical" I can disable to make faster from sites DW? It is unacceptable when I want to make a 1 minute difficulty to a site, but must be DW to HANG it for 5 minutes to make this minute 1 difficulty.

    What happens if you clear the cache of the site for the offender in 2015 CC?
