Why does Firefox disable a Roboform extension each time it opens making me enable it each time

I am using the latest versions of Firefox (22) and Roboform ( 7.9.0) with the Firefox extension.
I have used both programs successfully together for many years.
The problem MAY have been evident in just the previous versions of either or both programs.
No other extensions are adversely affected.
I am using Windows 7 with all updates.

What does the State line of this plugin say on the about:plugins page?
You can open about: pages via the location bar just like you open web pages.
Make sure that you have installed the latest version.
Try to delete the pluginreg.dat file in the Firefox Profile Folder and maybe addons.sqlite as well to reset the plugin registry databases.

  • Why does Firefox always block any link I try to open going to a web page when I don't have pop up blocker on?

    Why does Firefox always block any link I try to open going to a web page when I don't have pop up blocker on? First off they are not even pop ups....your crap blocks everything and don't save user names &/or passwords when you have it checked. Also in your tutorials about solving this issue says it has the word "OPTION" .......no, it never says option to allow you to bypass it and etc. Only thing is says is "ALLOW" . That would be nice , but the problem is it will not allow it from then on. It only allows it right then and then you have to refresh...after that to open again it blocks it again.....HOW STUPID?!!!!!
    It always say that this is preventing this page from automatically redirecting to another page. THIS IS WHAT I AM TRYING TO DO...GO TO ANOTHER PAGE........I DON'T NEED YOUr BROWSERS PERMISSION TO DO THAT. THAT IS WHAT A *%#$&*(&*%$$%% BROWSER IS FOR TO GO TO OTHER PAGES......THEY ARE NOT POP UPS!!!!!

    Are you using "Clear history when Firefox closes"?
    In case you are using "Clear history when Firefox closes":
    *do not clear the Cookies
    *do not clear the Site Preferences
    *Tools > Options > Privacy > Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history": [X] "Clear history when Firefox closes" > Settings

  • Why does Firefox disable the Uninstall button on incompatible and disabled extensions (which should be removed)?

    I guess I'm just OCD because I don't want to see a bunch of incompatible and disabled extensions on my list but I can't be the only person who would like to remove them. It seems the obvious choice ... but it is unavailable. Why?

    Please don't dodge the question. People have normal adds-ons and extentions that when become incomparable are greyed out and there is no way to uninstall it. Mine is Java at this time. Mine is an extension. I haven't had this enabled since 7 came out apparently I don't need it. So I would like to save space and take the darn thing off the computer. But I can't find a way. Can you please help me? thanks

  • Why does Firefox trigger the UAC warning each time I open it?

    I design websites and test them across most browsers. We use Windows 7 operating system, and only Firefox triggers the User Account Control message on our test computers, which is a major annoyance when opening instances of Firefox in rapidfire order as web designers do. Is there a way to disable it? The UAC is not triggered by Opera, Safari, Chrome and we have made sure we have not checked properties-compatibility tab - "Run this program as administrator" in both the Firefox.exe file as well as any desktop shortcuts - as advised by several people and contributors to Firefox forums. But that doesn't have an effect. Each time we test, we get the Windows 7 UAC message. We've written to Microsoft several times and they have not replied. We thought perhaps you'd have a solution that actually works.

    I reinstalled first without deleting everything and then as you suggested. The program now comes up ok when I log in as administrator. However, it is the only program I have that suddenly won't work as a non-administrator without requesting that the administrator approve it to make changes to my computer. I have looked at the permissions and they are the same as for WordPerfect, for example. I don't expect that this program makes changes to my computer that will bother any other users.
    Why does Windows 7 think that Firefox is going to change the computer for other users?

  • Why does firefox become less userfriendly with each update? first there no tab saver addon anymore and now there is no way to place spaces between the buttons

    there seems to be no possible way for any software developer to understand that whenever you release an update that changes the interface of the software it only annoys people
    i am now searching for a usable downgrade and looking around for an alternative for firefox
    thx for replacing userfriendlyness with that smooth and simple layout
    bringing back tab saver would perhaps change my mind despite the fact that my google search box and webadress box is now as wide as my screen witch is kinda useless not to mention ugly as fuck
    why instal a theme if there is always shit in front of it

    You can look at the Classic Theme Restorer extension to restore some functionality that was lost with the arrival of the Australis style in Firefox 29.
    *Classic Theme Restorer: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer/
    You can check the settings of the CTR extension via its Options/Preferences button on the "Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions" page.

  • Why does Firefox change the filenames of pdfs when it opens them? They go from normal names to 8-digit random letter/number sequences

    When I click to open a PDF from Firefox it behaves very strangely. Instead of opening the PDF with its original filename (say for example: Report_on_the_weather.pdf) it changes the file name on opening. They open up with random 8-digit filenames (for example 5918Bd01.pdf). It does this for all PDF files. I would like to stop this behabviour. Any ideas?
    My configuration:
    Firefox 4
    Windows XP
    Adobe Acrobat 8.1 Standard (not the Reader, the full standard application)

    cor-el, thanks for responding. As it turns out the machine was compromised, probably due to the Java upgade from 6.x to the supposedly current 7.x version. I suspect one of the 'always open' tabs in my profile was aimed at a site that had been compromised to exploit the java vulnerability that has not apparently been fixed yet.
    After removing Java, a current Panda AV scan detected three bad jar files. Further testing with MSCONFIG found a file in startup that did not belong, turns out to be a new exploit with very little coverage on virustotal (neither Panda nor McAfee detected it as malware) but as soon as it was taken out of the startup, Firefox started working perfectly.
    Firefox was the parakeet in the cave, tipping over to let me know something was wrong.
    The machine is in quarantine until a much more complete analysis is done. We may still rebuild it to be certain.
    I'm giving you a 'solved' on this because the windows safe mode boot pointed the way to determining the problem.

  • Why does firefox use more memory the longer it's open?

    Firefox goes from using 90,000k when first opened to 293,000k after a couple of hours. It didn't used to go up that high. This is just Firefox this doesn't count what plugin container uses. This just started happening where it would get this high. I've not installed any new addons recently. The addons I do have are foxy tunes, adblock plus, Java console, Java quickstarter, move media player 7, Memory fox, Microsoft.net frame work assistance, personas, and yontoon layers. I've tried running in safe mode and disabling all the addons and I've still got the same result. I'm using firefox 3.618.

    Sometimes application and programs don't report to the OS that it is no longer using the Ram and therefore the Ram Appears in use. Go to the Mac App Store and download a free Application called Free Memory. It's a useful tool that allows you to free that Ram that is not being used right from the Menu Bar.

  • Why does Firefox disable some Japanese character sets?

    Firefox 3.5.5 on Mac. Started yesterday at a point. My Japanese character selection (Kotoeri) disables all but Romaji. The only way to get others (like Hiragana and Katakana) back is to restart Firefox. It seems visiting certain web sites may trigger it, but don't know exactly. Why is this happening?
    It started from one of these and their links:
    I tried to recreate the situation, but couldn't. I will report back if I find one that triggers.

    You can check for issues caused by plugins (plugins are not affected by Safe mode).
    You can check for problems with current Flash plugin versions and try these:
    *disable a possible RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin extension for Firefox and update the RealPlayer if installed
    *disable protected mode in Flash 11.3 and later
    *disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin

    Hello @susan649, 
    Welcome to the HP forums.
    I understand that you are concerned about the amount of updates being sent to your Photosmart 6520.
    I would like to help.
    That is actually a lot more then normal. One every few weeks sure. four or more a day? Nope, not normal.
    Perhaps the same update is not updating properly so it tries again later.
    I would try setting a manual DNS.
    The following post by happytohelp01 has steps and screen shots to perform this.
    Efax 7510 still won't work after turning off/on ePrint several times
    The screen shots are for an Photosmart 7510, but the steps are the same.
    For the Manual Preferred DNS Server please use and for the Alternate Preferred DNS server please use These are Google’s public DNS servers. If you find that those DNS settings don’t work, some customers have had success using the Level3 DNS servers. I have included About.com’s Free & Public DNS Servers.
    If your printer is still doing an abnormal amount of updates, please call our Cloud Services at 855-785-2777.

  • Why does Firefox intermittently quit responding with MS Word 2002 open?

    I've noticed when I have MS Word 2002 (sp-3) open, Firefox will start intermittently hanging. No error message. I've also noticed, I can go to the task bar and minimize it, and then immediately maximize the Firefox tab, and it start working for a little bit. Quite irritating in the middle of a password input, since you sometimes forget where you were. This started happening about 4 to 6 Firefox versions ago. What's interesting, with MS Excel open, it's not an issue. It also doesn't make a difference which one was launched first. Same problem, and it's a very short time between hangs, maybe 15 to 30 seconds. I close MS Word, and there's no Firefox issues. I cut and past paragraphs etc, into my Word Docs for future reference, and my PC library, since sometimes you come back to the weblink, and they are gone. Therefore, I like to have both open. My work around is to keep opening and closing Word. :-/
    No other issues come to mind. I really prefer Firefox, but if I'm in Word for any length of time, I have to use one of my other 3 browsers, which have no issues with Word. IE, Chrome, and Opera.
    Personal Build System: Windows 7 Pro, 64bit, (sp-1), AMD Phenom II, A4 x840, 3.2Ghz, w/ 8GB Ram, Windows Exp 5.9, AMD Radeon HD6570, 2gb video ram) on MSI mobo 880G-E45.

    I have a status bar on my desktop that shows processor and memory usage. The memory normally stays between 20% and upper 30 % range. Not sure that I've ever seen it above 50%. It's at 37% (of 8gb) right now with 5 IE tabs going, which I've had 15 or more open with no issues(in both IE and Firefox)...and Excel is open, and 3 Firefox windows are open, along with several other applications. I just launched Word, and the memory didn't change. I just closed it so I could continue typing. I hate replacing it, when it works fine, and I've had no issues other than this. Since it was working fine, until 4 to 6 Firefox versions ago, It has to be something different with that or one of the plug-ins possibly, although I think I went through deactivating all the plug-ins per a post I saw about a year ago. Wasn't the same issue though, but I thought it might help. It was a waste of time, so I reactivated a select handful. '''That's a lot of $$ to spend, especially if that's not the issue.''' 'had rather put that $ on my next PC build. :-) I have the whole Office Suite.

  • Why does firefox keep asking for permission every time it starts, it never has before?

    I'm using Windows 7 and recently used CCleaner to clean my registry and now Firefox asks for permission to make changes to my computer every time it starts. I have checked for viruses and malware, tried running Firefox as the administrator, removed all but one of my add-ons but nothing helps. Any suggestions?

    Check that you do not run Firefox as Administrator.<br />
    Right-click the Firefox desktop shortcut and choose "Properties".<br />
    In the Compatibility tab, make sure that Privilege Level: "Run this program as Administrator" is not selected.<br />
    You also need to check the Properties of the firefox.exe program in the Firefox program directory.<br />
    If you can't make the changes then you need to start Windows Explorer as Administrator.<br />

  • Why does firefox send documents from yahoo mail to be opened by windows media player?

  • Want new tab to open to home page and why does firefox not have a simple check box in the options because I can't keep going through a long procedure each time

    I want new tab to open to home page and why does firefox not have a simple check box in the options because I can't keep going through the long tedious procedure each time I install firefox. It is something that should be in the options tab , and I want to know why it isn't. I am totally frustrated with firefox and getting ready to switch.

    You can use the SearchReset extension to reset some preferences to the default values.
    Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the "Firefox > Add-ons" page (about:addons).
    If you do not keep changes after a restart or otherwise have problems with preferences, see:
