I have been having much difficulty lately with my Flash Player crashing in Firefox. I've exhausted myself trying to find a solution to this issue and have had no success in making this problem go away. I am running FF 23.0.1, Windows 7 Enterprise with Service Pack 1. I've checked to make sure that Shockwave Flash is up to date within FF and it is, showing v. 11.8.800.94. I've removed it and re-installed, no change. I've cleared my cache and that helped only once but it no longer makes any difference. It seems to only be happening within FF if I use IE it doesn't seem to happen, or at least I haven't experienced it yet. I know, solution is to use IE instead of FF, but I really do prefer FF over IE - except for this issue, which is becoming more and more of an issue for me. If I can't find a solution, and my Help Desk at work is stumped on this, then I'm just going to have to stop using FF and go back to IE solely.
When installing an update for Firefox, I inadvertently set Firefox as the default browser. Now, when I try to click a link, I get this error message "This operation has been canceled due to restrictions set on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." I tried to change this four ways. First, by going into Internet Options, Programs, and selecting Internet Explorer as the default. The "Make Default" box is gray and cannot be clicked on. The second way I tried was through the "Select Default Programs". I made Internet Explorer my default program. I was still getting the error message in Outlook when I click on any link in an email. The third way I tried was to uninstall Firefox. I was still getting the error message when I clicked on a link in email. So, the fourth way I tried was to reinstall Firefox and indicating NOT to make Firefox the default. I'm still getting the same error message. If everything I try is not working, this looks like a proprietary attempt by Microsoft to prevent users from using other browsers. How can I correct this problem in Outlook and have it either go to Firefox OR Internet Explorer. I should have control over that, not Mircrosoft. Please advise.
For the second time, after upgrading my Firefox search engine (now Firefox 6.0) my Google home page doesnot offer the "Search UK sites only" facility. Last time this happened, I found a most helpful reply on a discussion forum and it worked. I cannot remember the site, nor what I did to restore the facility. Please can you help - How do I restore the "search UK sites only" facility on my Google home page?
