How do I get Firefox 8 to read Google gmail account?

After upgrading to the current Firefox version, I tried to access my gmail account at Google. When I tried to open the account, I received a page that said there was a problem with my cookies. It told me to make sure that cookies were enabled and clear the cache. It also told me to add www.google.com as an exception that is allowed. I did all three things. I still can't access my gmail account even th0ugh I could before I upgraded Firefox.

Try the Firefox SafeMode to see how it works there. <br />
''A troubleshooting mode, which disables most Add-ons.'' <br />
''(If you're not using it, switch to the Default Theme.)''
* You can open the Firefox 4/5/6/7 SafeMode by holding the '''Shft''' key when you use the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
* Or use the Help menu item, click on '''Restart with Add-ons Disabled...''' while Firefox is running. <br />
''Don't select anything right now, just use "Continue in SafeMode."''
''To exit the Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before using the Firefox shortcut (without the Shft key) to open it again.''
If it is good in the Firefox SafeMode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one. <br />

  • HT201248 My email address associated with my Apple ID on my iPad has been turned off from the ISp (U.S. army).   I have a new gmail account with a new Apple ID. How do I get my iPad to use my gmail account?

    Help. My old @us.army.mil email address was terminated by the army. I used that address to register my first apple id account on my iPad. I can't remember my original Apple ID number and if I ask to reset my password, Apple sends the reset link to my old non-working email address. I have a new gmail address and a new Apple ID number associated with that address. How do I get my iPad to use my new gmail address and new apple ID number?  Remember, I can't log out of my old account because I can't remember the password. Amd Apple will only reset the password by sending a link to my old, non functioning army email account. ( I hate army webmail for canceling all retired military email accounts). John Marc

  • How can I get Firefox to recognize my Google settings when I try to disable Google's homepage Instant Search?

    After saving my Google settings which includes turning off Google's new Instant Search, Firefox doesn't save these setttings the next time I access Google. IE Explorer recognizes my disabling of Instant Search but Firefox doesn't. I am using Firefox 3.6.

    Hey, no problemo! I bestow upon you my personal white-can award for the additional info. Meanwhile, the main problem was in how my defaults were set in the Firefox area you pointed me to. Once I got there, I was able to change the defaults so Google's radio button would work. The problem was that each time I saved the Google setting, a message box would pop up that my screenreader announcing that the settings were saved. But when I reloaded Firefox, they were not saved. I don;t know if the popup message was generated by the webpage or Firefox. I think some sort of interupt message should popup from Firefox if one's settings for cookies will prevent the settings from being saved due to cookies being unsaved. Anyway, you were a big help as I am new to Windows 7 and have just switched to Firefox as it handles and solves those nasty screen "captchas" really nicely with the Webvism captcha add-on.

  • How do I get firefox to open pdf files with Adobe reader instead of google?

    Firefox is unsucessfully using google to open pdf files.  How do I get firefox to open pdf files with Adobe reader?
    Message was edited by: veeryTalonted

    "Google" is a search engine (website) and NOT (repeat: NOT) a PDF viewer. It can't and won't open PDFs in any real or imaginable way.
    Firefox added their own proprietary PDF viewer with version 20 - they're on 21 now. I'll be the first to admit "it sucks". You CAN'T fill in PDF forms with it, and you can't email them from the page like with Opera, Safari or Chrome (which use the reader plug-in still).
    Unfortunately, the ONLY option you have now that they've added it and killed the ability for the Reader plug-in to work with Firefox, is Tools>Options>Applications - select Portable Document Format(PDF) and choose "Use Adobe Reader (Default)". What that will do is FORCE Firefox to download the PDF instead of opening it in their terrible PDF viewer in the browser window.
    Or... use one of the other browsers I mentioned. They're all free.

  • I've down loaded adobe flash player but when I try to veiw video on firefox I'm still told that I need adobe flash player. How do I get firefox to see the flash player download?

    I was trying to view a video I uploaded to facebook using firefox. The system told me to down load adobe flash player. I did but still get the message that I need to down load flash player. How do I get firefox to see the down loaded adobe flash player?

    by installing from within Firefox, Internet Explorer has its own version (Active-X).
    Make sure you are starting in the correct place for Flash
    * http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
    If you want to read PDF files in you browser, you might also want
    * http://get.adobe.com/reader/
    After the download,
    #bring up the download manager ("Ctrl+J") and start your installs. As soon as the install comes up,
    #close Firefox with '''File > Exit''' or "Firefox" button > Exit. Give Firefox some time to close.
    #If install does not proceed, '''terminate "firefox.exe"''' and '''"plugin-container.exe"''' from the "Processes" tab in the Windows Task Manager.
    #* Windows 7 shortcut to the WTM is "Ctrl+Shift+Esc"
    #* or on any Windows system from "Ctrl+Shift+Esc" then choose Windows Task Manager.
    #*Make sure that "firefox.exe" is no longer running -- if it is still running then terminate it by selecting the use "End Process" button or from context menu, and do the same for "plugin-container.exe" if it is found there.
    #proceed with the install.
    '''Warning''': this is the Adobe site and they have chosen to to provide crapware along with their own product. Only install the product you were planning to install. Do not install additional products: including -- "Free! McAfee Security Scan Plus" or "Google Chrome". Installing Google Chrome on your own and installing it because it is offered on the Adobe site are two different things.
    Find updates for your installed plugins at http://www.mozilla.com/plugincheck/ mozilla.com/plugincheck
    -- best to use Adobe's site to really see if their plug-ins are up to date.
    Please fix your caps lock or read what you type, do you think anybody could read my answer if I typed in all caps.
    If the above fails to correct the problem, I would try uninstalling Adobe Flash from your system entirely first, from the control panel then "Programs and Features".

  • How can I get firefox to show everything from left to right, without a curser that I have to move, in win-xp?

    It used to be ok. I had a firexox teeshirt from way far back, firefox 1.0. Then i had a hemorrhagic stroke, about 3 years ago. Now i'm back, in a new place, for two months now.
    (I use my left hand now...) and once again, i have a desktop, with win-xp (and five internal harddrives, and a 600w ps.) Anyway, for the first time with my new desktop, there is a cursor in the bottom of firefox, and it doesn't show everything, left to right unless i move it.
    I've been out of commission, with only a laptop, with win-7-64bit edition, that i got just 7 months before my stroke. My sister threw away all of my desktops...many of which i built. The doctor said i may die...so my sister didn't even wait, but threw away my CLOTHES AND BOOKS AND COMPUTERS (except for the laptop), but she saved most of my harddrives...i guess i taught her how to save harddrives.
    Anyway, it's been three years, since i've had no 32bit computer with win-xp, and i can't figure out how to make things go back to the way i'm used to. HELP! I was in your forums, when my e-mail was [email protected], which it will be again , soon. But for how, how do i get firefox to show all, left to right, without a bottom cursor? i know it's possible. (And while i'm asking questions, how can i, tony mendola, get another firefox 1.0 tee shirt? i would even pay for it, even though i'm on social security-disability, with only one hand working..and no work. I used to wear it, proudly when fixing computers for others.)

    Hi manni394, what version of Firefox are you running now?
    Firefox 22 has a new way of setting the default zoom level: it is based on your Windows font size setting. So, if you set Windows fonts to 125% (enlarged 25%), your Firefox pages also will be enlarged 25%. On pages that do not adjust their layout, you may get a horizontal scroll bar.
    To reduce the zoom on a page, hold Ctrl and tap the - key (the one on the numeric keypad or the one on the number row of the keyboard). The zoom should be reduced for each tap.
    If you want to globally adjust your zoom level to be lower, you can use either of these add-ons:
    * [https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/default-fullzoom-level/ Default FullZoom Level]
    * [https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/nosquint/ NoSquint]
    If you already have one of those add-ons, check the default/global zoom level in case it needs to be adjusted.

  • How do I get firefox to up date from a standard user account....or at least tell me to log on as administrator and update?

    I do almost all my work from a standard user account. Firefox neither automatically updates (as I set it to) or informs me an update is available.
    How do I get Firefox to update automatically when I am logged on as a standard user....or at least tell me to switch to admin account and update?

    Let me add a note to the developers: WE ARE ALL NOT ADMINISTRATORS!
    Even on our own personal computers.
    I claim that administrator accounts are for administering, or developing; not using. I wouldn't be an administrator for longer than is necessary than walk down the centre of a highway with my eyes closed.
    I'll repeat: Mozilla really should prevent the 'Update' button showing to an ordinary user if it's not going to be possible to use it.

  • When clicking "Save image as" how can I get Firefox to auto add a (1) (2) etc at the end of the filename if an image with the same filename already exists?

    How can I get Firefox to automatically rename images when clicking "Save image as" on the menu, when an image with the same file name already exists in the folder??

    Hello,
    That is not a feature that is supported natively within Firefox but there are various add-ons which I think will do the job you need.
    The one I have used is [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/web-slide-show/?src=search Web Slide Show]. This is primarily an add-on for viewing a slideshow of images when they are presented as thumbnails on a web page. However once you are in the slideshow there is a download button which will download all the images in the slideshow. It will automatically rename the images if an image with the same name already exists in the folder.
    If you don't like that add-on then here are some others that may do the same job:
    * [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/image-download-%E2%85%B1/?src=search Image Download II]
    * [https://addons.mozilla.org/En-us/firefox/addon/image-picker/ Image Picker]
    I hope that helps. Let me know if not.
    Also I notice that you are using Firefox v23. That is now an outdated version. To get the latest security updates I suggest updating to version 24. See the support article here: [[Update Firefox to the latest version]].

  • I'm on Firefox 3.6.8 running on a 2008 IMAC with OS 10.5.8 yet every click to move pages, from start-up, to return to Home Page takes minutes, not seconds! If I use Safari that's greatly faster on this same set-up. How do I get Firefox to be as fast ?

    == Some time back, beggining with Firefox updates, at least three, or more updates ago.

    Thanks for the tip. I took the following steps:
    1) Backed up the existing profile (presumably corrupted somewhere);
    2) Deleted the existing profile;
    3) Moved the existing Firefox to the Trash and downloaded a fresh copy;
    4) Started Firefox (thus allowing it to create its default profile)
    5) Copied the following files from the backup copy of the previous profile: places.sqlite, key3.db, signons.sqlite, permissions.sqlite, persdict.dat, cert8.db ---
    I'm posting this from a Firefox browser, so I guess I'm OK now.

    If you have a separate FTP client, you could use that (link: ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/3.6.3/win32/en-US/ )
    If you have email on the machine, have a friend email you the installer file.
    Else you'd have to use an external storage device (USB drive, external hard disk or some such).

  • How do you get firefox 4 to save tabs and windows and restore them? Don't say set preferences to open them on startup or use restore previous session under history; those do not work. Or is it no longer possible to save windows and tabs?

    Question
    How do you get firefox 4 to save tabs and windows and restore them? Don't say set preferences to open them on startup or use restore previous session under history; those do not work. Or is it no longer possible to save windows and tabs?

    '''IT'S A EASY AS IT SHOULD BE.'''
    This is essentially paulbruster's answer, but I've added the steps some might assume, but which aren't so obvious to those of us who are new at this, like me.
    This solution might ''appear'' to be long and complicated, but after you follow the directions once, you'll find it's quick, clean, and simple. Almost like they designed it this way.
    # If you haven't already, open a bunch of tabs on a few different subjects.
    # Click the List All Tabs button on the right side of the tab strip.
    # Select Tab Groups.
    # Create a few groups as described [http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/what-are-tab-groups#w_how-do-i-create-a-tab-group here] , i.e. just drag them out of the main thumbnail group into the new groups they create.
    # Now click on any thumbnail in any new group, but not the original big default group you may have left some tabs in.
    #A regular Firefox window will open, but'' only the tabs in that group will be visible.'' You also now have the Tab Groups button in the tab strip.
    # Right click on any tab, and there it is: Bookmark All Tabs. Click on it in the list of options. Or you can hit Ctrl+Shift+D instead and go straight to the dialogue box from the tab without any clicks. But don't go looking for this familiar option anywhere else, 'cause it's not there.
    # Now pick an existing folder or create a new one just like you would have before and '''shlpam!''' there they are. New folders are supposed to end up in the Unsorted category all the way at the very bottom, but for some reason mine show up at the bottom of my last sorted category.
    # DO NOT CLICK THE UPPER-RIGHTMOST X to close this group of tabs. This will close ALL of your tabs in all groups, currently visible or not. At least it asks if you're sure first. Instead, click your new Tab Groups button to return to the Boxes 'O Thumbnails window, and click the X in the group box you just bookmarked.
    # Click on another thumbnail to repeat the process with another group, or click on a thumbnail in the big default box to return to the original FF window. You can also click the Tab Groups button at the upper right, or Ctrl+Shift+E, which will also get you ''into'' the Boxes 'O Nails window ''from'' FF.
    # So now when you reopen FF after shutdown, simply select your folder from your Bookmarks and Open All in Tabs. '''Just like paulbruster said. '''

  • When i download a file from the web i get "Anti-Virus Program not found " message. This has been happening since I change anti-virus programs for CA etrust to Sophos. How do I get Firefox to recognise my new Anti-virus program?

    every time i download a file from the web (ie. a PDF file) i get "Anti-Virus Program not found " message. This has been happening since I changed anti-virus programs for CA etrust to Sophos. How do I get Firefox to recognise my new Anti-virus program?

    That is a very good warning provided by the Download Statusbar extension. Something like that should been built into Firefox. I filed this Bug report a couple of years ago, about the lack of a warning like that. <br />
    https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=480855 <br />
    I have looked everywhere that I can think of to find a list of '''IOfficeAntiVirus providers''' ''(as mentioned in the Bug report)'' that will work with Firefox, so I can't answer that for you.
    You might want to ask the developer of the Download Statusbar extension about it. He might know which AV programs are compatible with the Windows API that Firefox uses for the download scan. <br />

  • How can I get Firefox to search my computer for plugins that are already there?

    How can I get Firefox to search my computer for plugins that are already there?
    Adobe's Flash player is already on my computer from IE 8. How can I get Firefox to see that it is already on my PC and use it so I don't have to download it again and possibly create other problems. Also, in my efforts to download Flash, Firefox activated IE which made me concerned that proceeding WOULD cause problems our just leave me where I am now where IE can use Flask but Firefox cannot.

    Internet Explorer uses a ActiveX version of the Flash player plugin as it does not work with other browsers.
    Download the Plugin-based browsers version from https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html and make sure Firefox is closed when you install it.
