When I am on messenger I continues to disconnect and I can't video chat. I can see the person, but the person cannot see me.

as I have said, I continue to disconnect from windows Messenger and video chat does not work. I can see the person and they can't see me.



·         You get the error message?

·         What version of windows messenger do you use?

·         Have you updated the drivers for your sound card, video card or Web camera?

·         Have you tried to add your webcam to the conversation, adding audio?

·         What kind of camera do you have to Web?

·         This problem occurs with just a touch or all contacts? »

Step 1: Check the video configuration in windows messenger.

(a) start Windows Live Messenger and sign in.

(b) prior to connect to anyone, open the menu "Tools" then click on "Configuration video / Audio.

(c) perform the tests and click on 'next' and confirm the webcam is the video display and then click "Finish."

(d) prior to connect to anyone, open the menu 'Tools' and then click 'Options '.

(e) select "Personal" and put a check mark next to "Webcam - enable others to see that I have a webcam".

(f) click on 'Apply' and then click 'Ok '.

(g) sign out and completely EXIT Windows Live Messenger to save the new settings.

Step 2: temporarily disable the security software and check if it works.

Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

If this does not work, I suggest you to visit the following site to get help.

  • When you use two monitors Media Player will not playback on screen #2 video (not a problem with the monitor #1).

    I'm sorry for the long post, but this is the type of problem that is easy to explain in person but if transported by writing it might take a little longer for the sake of the definition. Please read on without fear because this problem is not as complicated as you might think, I hope.

    I use two (2) screens of computers with the same system but why Media Player does not work on a single monitor and not the other monitor?

    I use two monitors with my PC thanks to the CLONE function and things last a lot. #1 monitor is a computer 19 "monitor. Monitor #2 is at the end of the piece. VIZIO, the manufacturer, markets a monitor #2 as a computer screen, nope, it's a 47 '' Vizio HDTV that I use as a computer screen. I use the installation without any problems for over a year now until yesterday. The problem: now, when I use two monitors to play a video, the sound will play but not the video. What I see is a black screen empty. This negative situation applies to only monitor the #2 and does NOT monitor #1.

    > very important Please note... when I have both monitors running and I play a video that you can actually see the video play on the #1, the 19-inch video monitor! There is absolutely nothing wrong with the video player when it runs on the small computer screen 19 inch. But when you turn your head to look through the living room where I Monitor #2 placed you won't see the video running on #1 monitor as you normally would before that dysfunction appeared. (No, instead of this you will see the Windows Media Player (or Nero or RealPlayer) readers 'playing' a black screen blank even if 1) both monitors are indeed cloned and 2) video plays without any problem on monitor # 1. Monitor #2 with media work (sort of) because the volume level is adjustable, and you can see the bar jump up and down and all around media player progression but the problem is that there is simply no video when you try watching the video on a monitor #2.

    > except to play videos through a Player multimedia, I can use my Vizio TV as a monitor for what is related to the computer, there is no another negative question. I can surf the web, edit videos, etc. When I run a video from Youtube to my computer the monitor #2 TV Vizio, the Youtube video plays well. Ditto for Netflix, no complaints there. In fact, I just typed this post on and displayed using Monitor #2... But if I want to watch a video that I saved in a folder XP then the only option is to use the #1 monitor.

    Thanks in advance for your help :)

    Do restore of the system as a first step. If this fails,

    1. uninstall all software of Monitor 2

    2. unplug the monitor 2

    3. restart the computer

    4. connect the monitor 2

    5. install all the software monitor

    We have identified two questions:

    (1) muse implements a markup bad comment, causing in the edition (IBE) browser to display the page properly. Only, this affects IBE and does not affect the published site. The combination of page that causes the bad markup is still TBD.

    (2) IBE does not account for the bad markup that leads to incorrect DOM, leaving IBE unusable.

    We have a fix for IBE (as BC) who is ready to be tested. We will update this thread when the fix is on.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I think you have malware. Start by removing the MediaPlayer extension, restart Firefox and see if the problem goes away. Then I suggest to also review the control panel to the other group junk that can infect Firefox or cause other problems. Here's how:

    (1) open Firefox page modules using either:

    • CTRL + SHIFT + a
    • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons
    • in the Windows "Run" dialog box, type or paste
      firefox.exe "about:addons"

    Note: If the interface of Firefox or the page is blocked by malware, you can start Firefox Safe mode. Steps for those who are at the end of this response.

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then find and remove the extension is suspected.

    Often, a link will appear above a removed extension to restart Firefox so that it comes into force. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links in the last step.

    (2) open the Control Panel, uninstall a program. After the loading of the list, click on the column heading "installed on" to group infections, I mean additions by date. This can help the surface elements undisclosed bundle which snuck out with some software, you have agreed to install. Beware of everything that you don't recognize / remember, since malware often uses sounding names important or innocent to discourage you remove. Out as much garbage as possible here.

    (3) for greater peace of mind, you can search for possible problems with the scanning/cleaning of the tools listed in our technical support article: Troubleshooting Firefox problems caused by malware. These scanners on request are free and take a long time to run. If they end quickly, especially if they require the payment you have a serious infection. I suggest the specialty forums listed in the article in this case.


    Firefox Safe mode disables extensions. Here's how to enter if necessary:

    Does not work if Firefox: Hold down the SHIFT key when you start Firefox.

    If Firefox is running: You can restart Firefox in Mode safe mode using either:

    • button "3-bar" menu > "?" button > restart with disabled modules
    • Help menu > restart with disabled modules

    and OK reboot.

    Two scenarios: A small dialog box should appear. Click on 'Start mode safe' (not update).

  • Recently, when I open a Google Doc spreadsheet (that I created), I can see the data but cannot type any changes.

    Firefox is my main browser. I have often to create and share spreadsheets Google Doc. All of a sudden, when I run one of my Google Docs, I can see the data but cannot make changes. Even an attempt to click a cell and type something (or change a format) receives no response.

    I tried to use Safari and IE, and the problem is is NOT manifested in these browsers.

    Wow! Starting Firefox in SafeMode circumvented the problem. I was able to edit the worksheet.
    Thank you!
    I now begin the troubleshooting process, as you suggested. I'll report my findings.

    Thank you.

  • Firefox does not start when I click on its icon. As far as I can see, all the program files are present.

    Firefox functioned perfectly earlier today. Tonight, when I tried to start Firefox as I usually do by clicking its icon in the quick start of Windows 7 bar there is no frequency. The same thing happens when I click on the application icon in Windows Firefox program folder. Is some way this can be fixed easily?

    I ran a full scan with Norton 360, Malawarebytes and Iobit Malware Fighter, whose no is no problem. Also, I checked the settings of Norton 360 and found no problem with the settings of Firefox. I downloaded the Firefox installation files and ran a custom implemented, by clicking on upgrade. Firefox now works well with all the Add-ons, bookmarks, history, cookies and saved passwords intact.

  • Firefox worked fine but now when it 'opens' briefly flashes off my normal screen and I can't maximize or minimize. I tried to uninstall, etc.

    I tried everything and nothing has worked. I love FireFox and Internet Explorer - hate it please help!

    Couple thoughts:

    (1) Firefox always seems to have a window active 'somewhere' based on having a tile on the Windows 7 taskbar?

    If so, how have you tried maximise?

    If you think that Firefox is running but is off the screen, check out this post to get a window usually positioned: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/941896#answer-381295

    (2) your home page using any Flash media?

    If so, try disabling the plugin Flash Player of protected mode. See this article from Adobe support under the heading of 'Last resort': Adobe Forums: how to fix protected Flash Player for Firefox mode?

    If you want to test a neutral page first of all, make sure that all Firefox Windows are closed, then launch Firefox from the start search box menu with:

    firefox.exe "about:blank"

    If this works, it's something on your home page.
