How do I get rid of the blue "downloading the latest applications" bar which won't go away even after uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox?

Can't get rid of the blue "downloading the latest applications" bar that seems to be just hanging and won't go away. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but the bar is still there after 2 days. I updated something (can't remember what!) on I.E., and it had the same blue bar, but it had a box I could x out of so it went away on I.E. I don't know why the blue bar is there on Firefox, as I did the update while on I.E.
== This happened ==
Every time Firefox opened
== I updated an application while on Internet Explorer.

Annette,
#In the menu bar, at the top of the Firefox window, Go to Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions.
# Locate ''each ''of the following extensions by name and click the disable button
#Restart Firefox as prompted and see if the undesired toolbar has been removed.
#The extensions to disable are: '''Crawler Toolbar''', '''MP3 Rocket Toolbar''', '''MSN Toolbar''', '''Search Helper Extension'''
If you don't need some / all of those toolbars, consider leaving them disabled.
You can probably remove these toolbars permanently from Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs.

    That crash appears to be casued by the Facebook plug-in.
    Create a new account (systempreferences -> accounts or Users & Groups on 10.7 and 10.8), make a new Library in that account, import some shots  and see if the problem is repeated there. If it is, then a re-install of the app might be indicated. If it's not, then it's likely the app is okay and the problem is something in the main account.

    CS5.5 and OSX 10.9.4: Most applications will not launch even after uninstalling and reinstalling the Creative Suite 5.5. After my 2011 MacBook Pro 17 died, I had to purchase a new MacBook Pro 15 to replace it.  I performed a Time Machine installation from that 2011 machine, and only Distiller and Acrobat would launch (none of the rest of the creation apps).  So I ran the CS5.5 installer, uninstalled, then reinstalled, producing the same result. When I try to launch, nothing happens.  What next?

  • I still cannot view flash players in firefox after uninstalling and reinstalling firefox and flash multiple times. how do i fix this issue perminantly?

    I can go into chrome without any issues and watch any video without any problem. the second i get into firefox nothing works. i have had this issue on and off for years. i really do not see why you cannot fix this if everybody else can. i have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox and flash player multiple times. nothing seems to work. I am truly getting really tired of this same problem year after year, i stay with firefox because you are privacy conscience and are being more so consistently. i do not know what other details to tell you other than this just keeps happening and it is making it very tough to do anything on firefox when i cannot use a simple thing such as flash player. as i said, if the other browsers can fix this i see no reason why firefox cannot year after year. i hope there is a simple fix for this problem because it has basically halted a lot of my work on the net as i will no longer use google or microsoft. thank you

    Firefox does not play videos. That is the job of the plugins.

  • Anyone getting the error message- windows error 127? It keeps coming up everytime I try to open iTunes- even after uninstalling and reinstalling.

    I updated my iTunes on my laptop and when I tried to open it, it continues to say some link in missing and Windows Error message 127. I tried uninstalling and then reinstalling, but the same message appears. Has anyone dealt with this before and know how I can fix it?

    For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down page in case one of them applies.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.

  • I've lost the capability to print pages (e.g., from Amazon) and after uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, the problem persists.

    I had to go to Internet Explorer to print an invoice copy from Amazon.com. I've never had to NOT use Firefox before to do this. I lost some of the icons, apparently, and one was the one for print.

    Please check for the issue in a new profile: [[managing profiles]].

    If 10.7.0 or later...
    Bootup holding CMD+r, or the Option/alt key to boot from the Restore partition & use Disk Utility from there to Repair the Disk, then Repair Permissions.
    If that doesn't help Reinstall the OS.

  • How can I get rid of multiple pictures at the same time?

    how can I get rid of multiple pictures at the same time?

    Adobe Bridge, lightroom and your file browser (windows explorer or Mac Finder) can select multiple pictures at once and then delete. If you are looking for more than that for information, you will need to be more specific at what your doing, what OS you have, and version of software your using. If necessary post screen shots so we can see what your doing. The more information we have the more detailed of an explaination can can give back to you.

    either Select All and drag to the left (turn on the Lock Automation menuItem if you have any automation curves)
    or
    use the Cycle Region to export the exact length you wish:

  • HT3951 I have several tv episodes stuck in my downloads on my iPad. I receive an error, unable to download when I try to resume downloading. I can't clear them out of the download queue. How do I get rid of these from download?

    I have several tv episodes stuck in my downloads on my iPad. I receive an error, unable to download when I try to resume downloading. I can't clear them out of the download queue. How do I get rid of these from download?

    You can always finish the downloads in iTunes on your computer and then the TV Shows to the iPad. Launch iTunes and go to Store>Check for available downloads. Finish the downloads and then sync the iPad.
    As far as trying to finish the downloads on the iPad .....
    Make sure that you do not have a stalled download in iTunes - a song or podcast .... if you have a download in there that did not finish, complete that one first. Only one thing can download at a time on the iPad so that could be what is causing the problem.
    If that doesn't work - sign out of your account, restart the iPad and then sign in again.
    Settings>Store>Apple ID. Tap your ID and sign out. Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.
    Go back to Settings>Store>Sign in and then try to download again.

    How do I get rid of adobe's "improve our products" popup window which keeps freezing CS6?

    In theory it would have to come up at least once and then you could choose yes/no. You can also choose that when you install it, so try to reinstall to put the respective configuration in place.

  • Tried to upgrade and after uninstalling and reinstalling several times, keep getting "procedure entry point could not be located in dynamic link library" followed by "iTunes was not installed properly"  Error 7.....Help, please??

    Tried to upgrade as instructed and after uninstalling and reinstalling (even back to the former iTunes which I was happy with)several times, keep getting message "Procedure entry point could not be located in dynamic link library"  followed by "iTunes was not installed properly"  "Error 7".    Help, please??

    Entry point errors can usually be fixed by deleting the offending dll, then repairing the component it is part of from the programs and features control panel. Unfortunately you neglected to include the detail of which dll is mentioned.

    The further information area has direct links to the current and recent builds in case you have problems downloading, need to revert to an older version or want to try the iTunes for Windows (64-bit - for older video cards) release as a workaround for installation or performance issues, or compatibility with QuickTime or third party software.

  • I couldn't update Firefox so I attempted to do an uninstall and reinstall Firefox 12.0 on Mac OS X 10.7.4 keep getting message A copy is already open.

    I attempted to uninstall and reinstall Firefox get message Firefox already open

    I could not open Firefox 13.0.1 when I updated to Mac OS X 10.7.4
    I receive the following prompt:
    '''A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at this time.'''
    I created a new OS user:
    System Preferences> Users & Groups> click on the "+" symbol, bottom left to create new user & save profile.
    Log out of current profile and log in to new OS user profile.
    Open Firefox in new user to see if the application opens.
    In my case the application opened. I then logged out of the new user profile and logged back into my old profile & followed the directions in the following weblink:
    The following link resolved the issue:
    '''http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager#Accessing_the_Profile_Manager'''
    Scroll down to: Accessing the Profile Manager > Mac OS X
    Close the application completely and make sure that it is not running in the background. Assuming the program is installed in the "Applications" folder, launch Terminal ("Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal") and enter the command starting with / after the prompt in Terminal:
    (Firefox) '''/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -profilemanager'''
    I then deleted the old profile and created a new profile.
    I was then able to open Firefox.

  • HT1923 After uninstalling and reinstalling itunes according to the instructions for Vista, I do not have QuickTime in my programs.  Am I supposed to install QuickTime separately?  Isnt it supposed to install with Itunes automatically?

    After uninstalling and reinstalling itues according to instructions for Vista, QuickTime doesn't appear in my programs, I don't seem to have it anywhere,  Isn't QuickTime supposed to be part of the Itunes installation?  Is the absence of it why no ipod will function correctly for me?

    Let's first try something relatively simple. Download and save a 64-bit version of the iTunes installer (iTunes64Setup.exe) to your hard drive. (Don't run the install on line.)
    Now try right-clicking the installer file and selecting "Run as administrator".
    Does that get you past the privileges errors?

  • I have downloaded the new update for Firefox 3.6 and now cannot connect to the internet. I've checked my firewall and have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, but nothing works.

    After installing the new update for Firefox 3.6, no matter what I do, I cannot connect to the internet using Firefox. I can get on the internet using my other browsers (Google Chrome and Internet Explorer), so Firefox is the only one that doesn't work. I have already checked my firewall and have added and removed Firefox from my firewall to no avail. I've also already uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but so far it hasn't helped.

    I have already tried removing firefox from my firewall. Even when I do that, my firewall doesn't detect firefox and prompt me to add it. And when I manually add it, it still doesn't work anyways. I've already tried the link as well, but it has been unhelpful. :/
    I'm not sure if it matters, but a few weeks before this, I did download Microsoft Security Essentials.
