After upgrading to Firefox 9.0.1, on first run after every reboot, the following warning apears for every installed Add-on. "Another program on your computer would like to modify Firefox with the following add-on"

After upgrading to Firefox 9.0.1, on first run after every reboot, the following warning appears for every installed Add-on.
"Another program on your computer would like to modify Firefox with the following add-on"
So, i have to "Enable" my installed Add-ons on each reboot.
Would you please help me !
P.S.: I found that these files (and some others) will be deleted on each reboot, and it happens on computer start up (not at shut down)!
extensions.ini
extensions.sqlite
extensions.sqlite-journal
And as i mentioned, i have the same anti virus on my laptop and desktop, but i have not any problem on laptop.

Do you have security software that acts like a sandbox or uses virtualization to restore files on a next boot?

It is possible that there is a problem with the file(s) that store the extensions registry.
Delete the files extensions.* (e.g. extensions.sqlite, extensions.ini, extensions.cache) and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry.

New files will be created when required.

If you see disabled, not compatible, extensions in "Tools > Add-ons > Extensions" then click the Tools button at the left side of the Search Bar (or click the "Find Updates" button in older Firefox versions) to do a compatibility check or see if there is a compatibility update available.

  • "Another program on your computer would like to modify Firefox with the following add-on" - how to disable?

    I am using the latest Firefox (28.0) on Windows XP in a shared computer environment. Although I do not have Administrator access, I installed Firefox myself and can change whatever Firefox config settings I want (including about:config and mucking with the files in the installation directory).
    I want to disable the tab that appears on Firefox startup, "Another program on your computer would like to modify Firefox with the following add-on". This tab usually appears once per day (the first time I startup Firefox each day). I want the tab not to appear at all, from now on.
    The "another program" in question is some program that is used in the facility where I'm using the computer, so I can't just uninstall that program. Although this is a shared computer environment, they don't "wipe" the machine every day, just reboot. So the Firefox I installed is still there with all my config settings intact. As far as I know, I'm the only person who uses Firefox on this computer.
    Solutions that don't work:
    "Just click Continue" -- but then I still see the "Another program" tab every day, and don't want to see it.
    "Click Remove in the Add-ons list" -- I removed the Add-on in question but the tab still appears every day.
    I would like a solution that either eliminates the Add-on request for that particular application, or eliminates all such requests ("Another program...") regardless of what application requested it. The ideal solution would be if the request itself had a checkbox for "never ask this again" but, alas, no such luck.

    Gosh... I spent about an hour preparing a response, then accidentally did control-something or alt-something which took me back a page and I lost everything I typed (even after I clicked Forward to try to get back to where I was). If anyone knows of a config setting like "don't ever trash an entire page of user input unless the user explicitly confirms it", or, "keep form input data even if the user goes Back or Forward", I think that would be a great feature.
    OK, back to the original question...
    I appreciate the responses thus far, but I think there have been some misunderstandings. Maybe a multiple-choice version would help:
    Question: Is there a way to suppress the appearance of the notification tab that says, "Another program on your computer would like to modify Firefox with the following add-on" (meaning, any request from another program to install an add-on is to be silently ignored and discarded)?
    Answer:
    (A) Yes, you can suppress that notification (please state how).
    (B) No, but you can request that feature (please state where).
    (C) No, you can't do that or request that feature.
    That's basically my question in a nutshell. If the answer is (B), I might envision a boolean about:config setting like "extensions.allowProgrammaticAddonRequests" that defaults to "true" and can be set to "false" manually. I think that would be the most direct solution (if it were possible).
    I will respond to some comments from above:
    "I don't understand why you are using a mozilla.cfg file to lock those preferences when you can modify the preferences for your current Firefox profile via about:config" -- This is because the "other program" in question (iCafe Manager) was setting certain config options (browser.startup.homepage, and browser.newtab.url) on every reboot (which happens every morning at that facility). I got tired of manually changing the settings back every day. Using the above-mentioned files, I successfully defeated iCafe Manager's daily interference with those config settings. The other things (like stuff related to Socks tunnelling) I probably could have just set once in about:config but doing a lockPref seemed to do no harm. The settings for "enabledScopes" and "xpinstall" were to see if they'd help with the problem I originally asked about, but they did not.
    "I would look in about:config to make sure those preference modifications are in effect" -- yes, I confirmed that the settings are in effect and locked. That much works as expected.
    "A) removing the iCafe Toolbar extension from the Firefox Addons -> Extensions panel results in the "Another program" tab at startup" -- true, but I think it would be more accurate to say: while the toolbar extension is not installed (due to either having been removed, or, never having been installed at all), the "Another program" tab appears on at least the first startup of Firefox after every reboot.
    "B) when you allow the installation it shows up as "(disabled)" in the Extensions list but the unwanted toolbar still shows up (correct?)" -- yes, correct.
    "You could explain the problem to the system administrator of your facility" -- unfortunately, there's no administrator on site, only a person who makes sure the lights are on. They'll call a tech if there's a catastrophic problem (like the net connection goes dead). Since I installed Firefox myself, and since iCafe Manager is a program they installed, I don't think they'll go out of their way to help me with Firefox (especially if I'm trying to defeat iCafe Manager's attempts to interfere with Firefox). From their point of view, their systems are working just fine.
    "allow the installation and then see if you can go to the Firefox Customize menu and HIDE the toolbar as a workaround" -- since I'm not in that facility now (and probably won't be again until this summer or so), I can't experiment with those systems now. But I do recall clicking just about everything I could, including "View - Toolbars" (which seems to be the same menu as when I right-click on a toolbar line). That menu allows hiding toolbars, but from my recollection, the offending toolbar was not displayed in the list, so I could not hide it that way. Also, the Customize menu ("View - Toolbars - Customize") seems to allow only modifications to a toolbar, and not a way to hide an entire toolbar.
    "it might help if you could post a new troubleshooting information list after you allow the iCafe Toolbar installation" -- ok, that troubleshooting report is included below.
    Thanks again for your help.

  • "Another program on your computer would like to modify Firefox with the following add-on" - how do I allow extensions?

    I cannot get extensions to run or enable, nor does the browser remember my preference.
    For example, after I install or Enable an extension, when I restart Firefox I get a tab for every extension that forces me to check "Allow this installation" after the prompt "Another program on your computer would like to modify Firefox with the following add-on".
    Moreover, when I click 'Options' on an installed extension, Firefox freezes permanently.
    Note that I DO NOT have any extensions.* files in my Profile folder, nor do they appear.
    I am trying to get MozRepl running. I am able to install it, but the menu option does not get added in the 'Tools' menu. Moreover none of the installed extensions are able to add to the menu.
    I've tried every solution in the following links
    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/929335
    http://kb.mozillazine.org/Preferences_not_saved
    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save
    I have made the Profiles\ folder and all subfolders Read-only, including the files.
    I have tried the "Reset Firefox to its default state".
    I have tried uninstalling (including removing all profiles/data) and re-installing Firefox, and I get the same issues.
    My operating system is Windows 7 and I have McAfee SiteAdvisor Enterprise Plus and McAfee VirusScan Enterprise + AntiSpyware Enterprise.

    Check that Firefox isn't set to run as Administrator.
    Right-click the Firefox desktop shortcut and choose "Properties".
    Make sure that all items are deselected in the "Compatibility" tab of the Properties window.
    * Privilege Level: "Run this program as Administrator" should not be selected
    * "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" should not be selected
    Also check the Properties of the firefox.exe program in the Firefox program folder (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\).

  • Message "another program on your computer would like to modify Firefox with the following add-on" appears every time a new user logs in... Bad problem

    I have just deployed an image to over 500 workstations, and they are all deep frozen using deepfreeze.
    When users are logging in, and open Firefox they are getting the message "another program on your computer would like to modify firefox with the following add-on:" Adobe Acrobat - Create PDF 1.2
    Yes I know u can do a one-time click and allow, but we have potentially 50,000+ students logging into these PCs and it is unacceptable that they are greeted with this message rather than the Homepage.
    This is very dissapointing, as we upgraded to the latest version of firefox in preperation for rollout, and then added some software like adobe.
    The profile is kept in the default user, so everytime a user logs in, they will get prompted with the message, and this will always happen because we use deepfreeze.
    I need a FIX ASAP from mozilla on how to disable this pop-up via Group Policy...
    Not at all happy,
    Sharpy

    Hi,
    One way you could try is to install Firefox on a fresh PC/image which has the same Adobe software versions installed as the clients. You may also have to install the same extensions as well as software for any additional plugins as on the clients. Start Firefox and make sure everything is okay. After that you can copy and overwrite the '''extensions.ini''', '''extensions.sqlite''' and '''pluginreg.dat''' files and probably the '''extensions''' folder and any supporting files of the extensions from this fresh profile, onto a client profile after temporarily disabling/unfreezing Deep Freeze. If everything is okay you can then push the changes onto the other clients via a logon/startup script after temporarily disabling Deep Freeze and then re-enable Deep Freeze.

  • Hot Fix error message for KB979344 "this update is not applicable to your computer", on Windows 7 64 bit with SP1

    I've been having issues with an external Esata drive.  Instead of being seen as a removeable drive, it is seen as a hard drive.  This has caused us nothing but problems since our full disk encryption software automatically starts to encrypt
    the drive rendering it useless.
    The real problem I'm having is installing the Hot Fix, KB979344, for this issue.  when tring to install, I get the message, "this update is not applicable to your computer"  I've looked and this hot fix doesn't seem to be part of SP1, but
    I could be missing it.  Any thoughts? 
    Thanks,
    Keith

    Hi Keithk,
    This hotfix is already contained in Windows 7 Service Pack 1.
    Please add the registry key to check if the issue persists. (For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.  )
    Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Storage  
    Create a DWORD Value, name SATAHotplugPolicyOverride,
    set 1 in Value Data.   
    Restart the computer to check if it works.

    I would like to format cells with time only.  when I enter a time of day the current date is still in the cell which is not necessarily so.  THere are  no options for just  date .

    christine275 wrote:
    ... (this is a time worked by date and not always entered on the date worked)--
    "Time" in Numbers is always "Time of Day", and is always part of a Date and Time value. "Amount of Time" is a Duration value, which may be displayed in a similar format to "Time of Day," but is a different type of value.
    If you are entering the number of hours and minutes worked, format the column as Duration, set the units and the format in which you want to have the value appear.
    The Date column will still contain a Date and Time value (Jan 1, 2011 00:00:00 in the cell shown in the example), but the "Time Worked" cells will contain only a Duration value.
    Incidently, the Date in A2 was entered as "jan 1" (without the quotes). Numbers automatically adds the current year and the default time value, then displays the result in the closest format to what you've entered, or in the Date and Time format you have chosen.
    The Duration value in B2 was entered as 3:15 (as displayed). Note that in the entry bar the duration is displayed as 3h 15m, probably to distinguish it from a similarly formatted (Date and) Time value.

    Reply address: is it possible to use another reply address other than the pop address used in my account. I have a special work account and would like to send emails with that address as my reply address...or sent from address

    i found out how to do this finally!
    1) set up google gmail account to forward your emails to (from the [email protected])
    2) go to your gmail account
    3) go to settings (cog in right hand corner)
    4) go to 'accounts and import'
    5) go to 'send mail as'
    6) click 'Add another email address you own' - add your [email protected] address
    7) google will send a verification email with code to that email address.
    8) enter code
    9) go back to gmail account  >'send mail as' and select 'make default'
    10) close mac 'mail' program and reopen it.
    as long as you have gmail account selected as the primary account in MAIL - mail will now come throught as being sent from that  [email protected] address!!

    can i run my apple TV from an iPad2 with a PC as the iTunes server ... would like to do away with Apple TV remote ... thank you
    JJ

    As I was saying earlier that is not possible because the Apple TV has no accessible storage and streaming from your iMac is done via home sharing on your local network.
    iTunes purchases can be accessed via the cloud on Apple TV. If you have iTunes Match you can access your full music libary from the cloud.
    Using the iPad to watch your films would require syncing them and then connecting the iPad to a TV.

    Your smartboard would need to include a data projector function of such sort, and then you would connect your device to that projector as you would any other data projector.
