Firefox 14.0.1 will not run on my computer even after unistalling and reinstalling and cleaning the registry, yet Firefox 9 runs fine why?

As soon as I updated to Firefox 14.0.1 it would not start, I uninstalled and reinstalled several times, including removing almost all registry references to Firefox or Mozilla. As soon as I downloaded Firefox 9 it worked fine, I guess I will be waiting until and update that works.
Windows 7, 64 bit, full updates, Webroot A/V, no malware. I don't so much as need a solution as I was offering up advice.

Would you mind installing Firefox 14 again, and seeing if you get any crash Id's from it? there is a startup crash that we are investigating right now, and it seems similar to what you are experiencing.
#Press the following shortcut to get a Run window: [Windows] + [R]. This should bring up a window that contains a text field.
#In that text field, enter %APPDATA% and press Enter. An explorer window should open.
#From that explorer window, double-click on the ''Mozilla'' folder, then double-click on ''Firefox'' and then on ''Crash reports''. Double-click on ''submitted''.
#Now, you should see a list of files that contain reports. Go to ''View'' > ''Arrange Icons by'' > ''Modified'' to get the most recent files at the top of the window.
#Open the most recent 5 files with a text editor and copy the IDs.
#Paste each ID into the reply window on the forums.
Thanks in advance!

    Which printer do you have specifically? HP makes several eprinters and I want to make sure I get the best information for you that I can.
    Also, have you tried doing a self test print to see if the issue is hardware related versus being software related?

  • Firefox will not open on my computer, even after reinstall, with no error message or when I try to run "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -p. Help?

    I recently installed firefox so I could use an adblocker. It installed just fine, and it worked just fine for about three days. Then yesterday it stopped opening. I'm on a Toshiba running Windows 7. The icon highlights when I click on it, but then it stops and won't open the browser at all. When I try to run it with the manual command "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -p, I get the error message, "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\ refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the Internet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location." I installed it to that location, and I don't need a disk. I'm connected to the Internet just fine and my other browsers (Chrome and IE) work the same as always. But they're swamped with ads and I really was happy wih Firefox when it was can I fix this issue?

    Certain Firefox problems can be solved by performing a ''Clean reinstall''. This means you remove Firefox program files and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:
    '''Note:''' You might want to print these steps or view them in another browser.
    #Download the latest Desktop version of Firefox from and save the setup file to your computer.
    #After the download finishes, close all Firefox windows (click Exit from the Firefox or File menu).
    #Delete the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations, by default:
    #**C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
    #**C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox
    #*'''Mac:''' Delete Firefox from the Applications folder.
    #*'''Linux:''' If you installed Firefox with the distro-based package manager, you should use the same way to uninstall it - see [[Installing Firefox on Linux]]. If you downloaded and installed the binary package from the [ Firefox download page], simply remove the folder ''firefox'' in your home directory.
    #Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
    ##Double-click the downloaded installation file and go through the steps of the installation wizard.
    ##Once the wizard is finished, choose to directly open Firefox after clicking the Finish button.
    Please report back to see if this helped you!

    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try on another computer
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • My iPad will not play sounds on certain applications. ie: if I click on a video from FB sound will not play. If I go to YouTube and play the same video sound will play. Also certain games will no longer play sounds. They always played sounds but now won't

    My iPad will not play sounds on certain applications. ie: if I click on a video from FB sound will not play. If I go to YouTube and play the same video sound will play. Also certain games will no longer play sounds. They always played sounds but now won't now. I just went to my churches web site to watch live service and again no sound. I grabbed my dads iPad and the sound works fine.

    If you lose sounds for keyboard clicks, games or other apps, email notifications and other notifications, system sounds may have been muted.
    System sounds can be muted and controlled two different ways. The screen lock rotation can be controlled in the same manner as well.
    Settings>General>Use Side Switch to: Mute System sounds. If this option is selected, the switch on the side of the iPad above the volume rocker will mute system sounds.
    If you choose Lock Screen Rotation, then the switch locks the screen. If the screen is locked, you will see a lock icon in the upper right corner next to the battery indicator gauge.
    If you have the side switch set to lock screen rotation then the system sound control is in the task bar. Double tap the home button and in the task bar at the bottom, swipe all the way to the right. The speaker icon is all the way to the left. Tap on it and system sounds will return.
    If you have the side switch set to mute system sounds, then the screen lock rotation can be accessed via the task bar in the same manner as described above.
    This support article from Apple explains how the side switch works.

  • Firefox will not load Java in Linux - even after following all instructions on net I can find - what am I doing wrong??

    The problem I've got is I'm currently running Puppy Linux on my laptop.
    Now I've tried everything I can to get Java working under either Firefox, Chromium or Seamonkey (I have all three browsers on my computer).
    For firefox and seamonkey I have tried the following -
    downloaded the tar.gz file for java
    unpacked it to /opt/java
    gone to /user/lib/mozilla/plugins and run the command
    ln -s /opt/java/plugin/i386/ns7/
    to create the symbolic link to the plugin
    checked that the plugin is executable (actually even tried giving everything full permission to read/write and execute it)
    For Chromium done a similar thing but put the symbolic link in /usr/lib/chrome-linux/plugins folder instead.
    Restarted the web browser, even tried restarting X Server in case the browser is running somewhere in the background.
    All three browsers can pick up all the other .so plugins in that folder except Java.
    When I click check plugins on firefox I get to the page about "Missing Java? - For your safety Firefox has disabled your outdated version of Java. Please upgrade to the latest version".
    However the version I've downloaded is Version 7 Update 9 which is exactly the same one that is available as the latest version from Java themselves (it was only downloaded from that link a couple of minutes before, I've even tried re-downloading it just in case there has been an update within those 5 minutes).
    If I go into the Java folder and run ControlPanel the Java control panel pops up and it knows where Java is installed and everything.
    So what on earth is going on? Am I installing the plugin in the right directory? I'm guessing so as that is where all the other plugins are stored and Firefox, Chrome and Seamonkey are picking all the others up fine, or could there be an older version of Java lurking around somewhere on my system that Firefox, Seamonkey and Chrome are all trying to use?
    I've also tried downloading the RPM and installing that into the /usr/java folder and replacing the symlink from /opt/java to the one in the /usr/java folder and still nothing.
    I just really can't understand it 'cos it's picking up all the other plugins like Gecko and even installed Flash in the same way and that works fine.

    Thanks cor-el looks like Oracle need to update their linux installation instructions then. If only I'd have known that before doing all sorts to get it working.
    I now have Java in Firefox, Chrome and Seamonkey :) :) :) :) :).

    Hi meganisawsome,
    If your iPod will not turn on and you are getting indicators that there is no battery left, the first step would be to make sure that the iPod has been charged correctly. You may find the following article useful:

  • ICal will not sync in 10.5.5 after erase and new install!!!  HELP

    I had to do an erase and install of Leopard, and now my iCal will not sync.
    Thanks to it being such a great application I now sync my iMac at home, my iPhone, my iBook, and my G5 tower at work all to each other, I now depend on it for client meetings and personal dates and just everyday functioning!
    How do I fix this? What do I need to do to get my calendar in sync with my iMac and the rest of my computers and iPhone.
    I appreciate any and all advice to get this working again. Monday's already here!
    APPLE please do not ignore this!
    Steve Amaral

    Latest update 5 July. I just downloaded 10.5.4 and at least ical opens! The icon is still grayed out (not sure if that is a sign and symptom of some other problem) Not sure how well the program will work with Entourage and the rest of the applications after reading other posts about 10.5.4 Thanks for all the posts and I followed them to a T with no success until I downloaded 10.5.4
    NOTE TO APPLE: I bought this machine to avoid the Window problems! It's nice to see you guys are following the leader! This Leopard OS is a mess! I regret nearly every day I made the switch! The IBM compatible laptop I bought after buying this machine (that's right no multiple mistakes) works flawlessly with Vista.
