FireFox 13 Search Bar not working with TB display

I have a strange problem.  I have a new 13" MB Air (mid 2012 model) and I have it attached to a Thunderbolt display.  I use FireFox 13 for browsing.  When my MB Air is solo (i.e., not hooked up to my TB display), the search bar in the top right of the FireFox screen works normally.  When I have the TB display hooked up (both in clamshell and extended desktop mode), the search bar doesn't work (keep getting an error that the connection was reset).  I am having the same problem with the address bar search function as well.
I have tried deleting the appropriate files in the FireFox Profiles folder (formhistory.sqlite, search.json, search.sqlite...all after quitting FireFox), but to no avail.  Sometimes after doing this the search bar will work once, but then on a subsequent search I get the same connection reset error.

  • Why is my search bar not working?

    I'm running Firefox 8.0 on Windows 7. Recently, my search bar (the one with Google, YouTube, Amazon, etc.) has stopped working: if I enter a search string, it does not load a results page, it just spins and says "Connecting..." forever - this happens for all search engines, not just one. However, if I hit enter in the bar with no search string entered, it does take me to the home page of the site as normal. Any suggestions?

    Everytime i click safari, it shows ( Do you want to change your search engine to yahoo?) I did click cancel or ok but nothing happened. Just block

  • Firefox Version 11.0 not working with Yahoo! Babel Fish!

    I just updated Firefox to Version 11.0 on my Mac OS X Version 10.6.8. The '''Yahoo! Babel Fish''' still does not work with non-Roman based scripts, such as '''Russian''', '''Greek''', '''Chinese''', ''etc''.
    If you attempt to translate text in one of such scripts into English, both the input and output windows get garbled characters (which are supposed to be codes of some sort); if you attempt to translate English into one of these languages, you get a blank space.
    If I use '''Safari''' Version 5.1.4, however, '''Yahoo! Babel Fish''' works perfectly.
    Hope this problem can be solved soon.

    I've had the same issues for the past couple of months. I did not see your question earlier in the day, so I posted a similar question here:
    @cor-el - He says it works fine in Safari. It works fine for me in Chrome or IE also. This is not an issue with the babelfish page. This is a Firefox issue.

  • Firefox for aol dose not work with aol emails.Why

    Since the email inter face changed I can no longer send email attachments, even items embeded in the email body come out blank at the other end. I use Firefox configured for AOL but that dose not make any difference. I had no problems untill this change is there anyway to reset it. AOL say the problem must be with your software. They sujested that I try using IE 9, I would rather stay with Firefox as I find it is a much better browser.

    for some reason firefox does not work with the new Email window on All the other browsers work with yahoo mail just fine!! Are you working on a fix???
    I have had the problem of Yahoo! mail freezing (my computer freezing) with Firefox right after I boot up my computer and sign into my Yahoo! mail account. I have to either shut down my computer or use Control + Alt and press Delete to eventually bring up the Task Manager option. Then, once the choice for Task Manager comes up, I can click on cancel and Yahoo! mail and my computer have "un-frozen." I have followed all the recommendations for updating Firefox, clearing caches, checking if an Add-On is the problem, etc., as well as all the recommendations on Yahoo! help pages. Nothing has improved the situation to date. Firefox info says the problem is with Yahoo! Yahoo! says it is a browser problem. I just want the problem to be fixed.

  • Possible Solution to Google Search Bar Not Working/Safari Not Loading Pages

    Hello Apple Forums,
    I have recently encountered a possible solution to a problem with Safari. The one in which Safari fails to load any page associated with Especially the Google Search Bar—a feature I use frequently.
    After browsing through the forums about the Google Search Bar issue, I took my knewly gained knowledge, and decided to do some diagnosing for myself.
    This is what I have done so far to try and solve this issue:
    Run Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Cron Scripts
    Cleared the following caches:
    System Local Computer Cache
    System VM (Swap) Files
    Curent User Cache
    Current User Icon Cache
    Internet Explorer Download Cache
    Page History
    Web Site Cache
    Temporary Files
    Safari Downloads List
    Form Values
    Page History
    Recent Searches
    Site Icons
    Web Site Cache
    User Cookies (used by Safari)
    Finder Recent Applications
    Recent Documents
    Recent Folders
    Recent Servers
    Recent Files of AppleWorks 6
    Disk Utility Disk Images
    QuickTime Player Favorites/Recent
    REALbasic Projects
    and Other caches of Acquisition Current Downloads
    Acquisition Recent Searches
    MSN Conversation History
    Vicomsoft FTP Client Icon Cache
    All of the above runnings of Cron scripts and clearings of Caches were done using Mac Pilot version 1.1.5 (yes the one on the site is an updated version, but I have not downloaded it yet). If you decide to use this program to clear caches, I advise not clearing the Installer Receipts under the System section as Installer Receipts are used to correctly repair permissions. I do not clear Find File Indexes either, because I use the Find File feature quite frequently on my computer and I do not want to have it re-index files all the time (perhaps I'll do it every few months or so to refresh what I've got on the harddrive). Remember, all the information given in this paragraph is relative to Mac Pilot version 1.1.5.
    In addition, I have also repaired permissions using Disk Utility 10.4.4 (v145.7) (make sure you restart your computer after you repair permissions). I have taken out items in /harddrive/library/StartUpItems as well as taking out items in /harddrive/library/Internet Plug-Ins and in /user/library/Internet Plug-Ins and in user/library/Caches (restart your computer after taking out or putting in items in these locations).
    As of now, all the information mentioned above about trying to fix this problem have NOT worked.
    What HAS WORKED for me was tinkering with my 3rd party firewall—Norton Personal Firewall Version 3.0 (48). Under the Protection Settings, I HAD Enable Active FTB support, Enable Stealth mode, Enable suspicious activity protection (with Deny outgoing suspicious traffic and Deny incoming suspicious traffic selected), Enable UDP Protection (with Protect outgoing UDP connections, Allow access to essential services, and Protect a range of UDP ports 1 through 1023 selected).
    What I CHANGED in Protection Settings was DESELECT Enable suspicious activity protection (with Deny outgoing suspicious traffic and Deny incoming suspicious traffic DESELECTED). Upon deselecting that information the Google Search Bar feature in Safari WORKED practically instantaneously. Before hand, anything I inputted into Safari and after hitting Return on the keyboard just wound up hanging there.
    Just to be sure, all tests were performed on:
    IMac G4 800 Mhz SD Mac OSX 10.3.9 with ALL the latest Software Updates, Except Apple Remote Desktop Client version 1.2.4 and iPod Updater 2006-01-10
    I have a cable internet connection with ISP Time Warner Cable (RoadRunner) using a SurfBoard SB4100 Cable Modem on an AirPort Extreme Base Station (Apple Base Station V5.6)
    Interesting side note: I have a PowerBook G4 15" 1 Ghz Mac OSX 10.3.9 Laptop running on the same network (although it has an airport extreme card as opposed to the regular airport card in the iMac) with ALL the same latest Software Updates, Except iPod Updater 2006-01-10. The Apple Remote Desktop Client version 1.2.4 does not come up on Software Update on the Laptop and I can not find it on the harddrive using a name search in the Finder Find feature. It does not show up in Applications folder, so I do not know if it is on or active on the Laptop.
    The LAPTOP IS ABLE TO USE ALL GOOGLE FEATURES without DESELECTING Enable suspicious activity protection (with Deny outgoing suspicious traffic and Deny incoming suspicious traffic DESELECTED). Why this is apparent I have not officially confirmed.
    What I do know is that I have tried to Uninstall Norton Personal Firewall Version 3.0 (48) with the appropriate uninstaller but it FAILS during the uninstall (I wanted to uninstall and reinstall, it appears the program became corrupted). What I did to possibly circumvent this was to search for the phrase 'Personal Fire" using the Finder's Find feature (Search for items whose name contains 'Personal Fire') and deleted all the files that came up related to Norton Personal Firewall Version 3.0 (48). I then reinstalled Norton Personal Firewall Version 3.0 (48) since then, and it continues to have the problem with Enable suspicious activity protection (with Deny outgoing suspicious traffic and Deny incoming suspicious traffic selected).
    What I have not done:
    Updated Prebinding
    Run TechTool Pro version 4.1.2
    Install Combo OSX 10.3.9
    Initialize HardDrive with complete reinstallation of OSX 10.3.9
    To Summarize Possible Solution
    I've tried many possible solutions, what appears to work best as of now is to DESELECT Enable suspicious activity protection (making sure Deny outgoing suspicious traffic and Deny incoming suspicious traffic are deselected) under Protection Settings in Norton Personal Firewall Version 3.0 (48).
    One could try deselecting something similar in any firewall application other than Norton Personal Firewall Version 3.0 (48), to see if it is suspicious activity settings in firewalls that cause the problem.
    Any comments/feedbacks are extremely welcome.
    Hope It Helps!

    Hello tr:
    Welcome to Apple discussions and thank you for your very very thorough post.
    Your instincts to delete anything named "Norton" were right on the mark. Norton software is POISON to Macs running OS X. An additional software firewall is, IMHO, completely unnecessary. Turn on the built-in firewall in OS X - it is robust. In fact, if it is already on, there may be a conflict.
    Go to Symantec's web site and use the uninstaller you should find there to get rid of the Norton stuff. After you do that, do a "find" on Norton and Symantec to be sure it is all gone - the stuff hides everywhere.

  • Firefox version 4 does not work with Mac OS 10.4.11. Is there a fix for this? Alternatively, how do I download an older version of Firefox that will work?

    I have a an older IMAC as a second computer. I replaced an older version of Firefox with the new update. I had to do this because Firefox gave me a message that the older version would no longer work. The new version 4.0 will not open even after it is put in the applications folder. I get a message that says this version is not compatible with my Operating system. I don't want to change the OS at the moment.
    Can anyone help? I'd like to just download an older version of Firefox if that is the only way to make this work, but I can't find an older version on the website.
    Thanks very much.
    Had the same problem; would have been nice if they had told s that we need an intel processor on our older Macs! I am up and running again.

  • Firefox 12 flash player not working with video on Facebook

    Using Firefox 12, newest flash player 32 bit -- embedded video won't work on Facebook. I have tried another computer with XP SP3, completely removed firefox, flash, started in safe mode with add ons disabled, even created a new profile with no addons at all, and nothing seems to fix the problem. Video plays fine in Internet Explorer. That said, YouTube works fine so I don't think its a flash 'only' problem. (I right clicked on video to make sure flash was playing the video and not html 5.)

    Is the Flash player loaded if you right-click that black box where the player should be?
    Does it help if you try to "Disable the hardware acceleration" in the Flash Player?

  • Solved: Quick search does not work with FF4

    [ failed quick search example]
    As you can see from the image above, I have a quick search defined for 'am' which is set as a 'keyword' for an search. When I type the keyword followed by a search term it it displays an error page with a path to some resource in a .jar file.
    Note the save URL does not include a %s. It used the previously document behavior of having any text that followed the keyword appended to the keyword URL.
    When I add the %s to the end of the saved quick search URL, the quick search works correctly. This change confused me for a while until I dug into it and now I need to check and update all of my quick searches. :-(

    Hi qzy,
    When you enable anonymous access in SharePoint, did you want the anonymous user have the permission
    to access the site content such as library or just need them to be capable to search? You may need to check your configurations according to the document below based on your requirement.
    When you enable search for anonymous user for the site collection, is it a team site or publishing
    site? By default team sites are designed for intranet site so search on Team Site with default value will be prompted for
    credentials because “OSSSearchResults.aspx” page is configued to publish results based on “LayoutsPageBaseClass(Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls)” class. The LayoutsPageBase Class Represents an application page (sometimes
    called a "_layouts" page). If you want to do that in team site, you need to remove the “LayoutsPageBase Class(Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls)” from “OSSSearchResults.aspx” page, which is not a recommended way.
    Publising Sites are desinged for internet site so “Search/Results.aspx”
    is configured in a way where it can deliver search results for
    anonymous users. If in your scenario it’s for publishing site, you need to ensure that the content which should appear in the search result is visible for anonymous user. (Follow the “Enable anonymous access for individual lists”
    part in the link above)
    You can also create a search center to see if the user can get search result there. Regarding the
    second issue, you need to check the crawl logs and ULS logs to find the clue.
    For more information, please refer to:
    Hope this helps.

  • Firefox 14.0.1 not working with Mac OS10.8

    Ever since upgrading to Mac Mountain Lion, Firefox (most updated) not working (mostly links don't work). AOL mail will open but cannot open individual emails. Uploading of info on various websites (e.g. slow and articles only come up AFTER ads load. Whole system is slow. Went through troubleshooting list and now all my bookmarks appear to be lost...I'm not a very happy camper because I don't like Safari...but it is the only browser that works.

    The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information.
    Note: ''This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.''
    To Reset Firefox do the following:
    #Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
    #Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
    #Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
    #Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

  • Firefox 4.0 will not work with my Knology email service when 3.6 will, why not?

    I've cut and pasted the Knology response to my question. As you can read below, Knology states it is Firefox issue.
    Mr. Stanley,
    Thank you for contacting Knology Technical Support. I do apologize that you are having problems accessing the webmail service with Firefox. As the error message states this is a problem with Firefox dropping support for some type of code. The way its worded makes me assume that it will be available as a plug in or extension for Firefox, but we do not know what they have dropped out of the base browser. Both Internet Explorer and Google Chrome have no problems accessing the webmail.

  • Mercury Transmit not working with vertical display arrangement

    I've been using Mercury Transmit with my displays side-by-side successfully.
    Today, I moved my 1080p external monitor behind my built-in retina laptop display, and I can no longer transmit to the built-in, while working on the external.
    However, I am able to work on the built-in while transmitting to the external, but this is not ideal, since the built-in has more accurate colours.
    This works ^^^
    but this doesn't work:

    2 positions (top or bottom) * menu bar position * Transmit which Display = 8 combinations
    Of these eight, only two work: Arrangement 1 and Arrangement 5
    Arrangement 1 is bad because I am transmitting to the external monitor which has poor colour gamut.
    Arrangement 5 is bad because the screens are placed inverted to their physical positions; I have to travel upwards to go to the bottom screen.
    Arrangement 7 is the target.
    The picture at the bottom is the limit when Mercury Transmit will stop working. If I move the lower screen any further to the right, Mercury will stop.

  • Navigate Value Interaction not working with UNIONs displayed as pivot

    hi all - If created dozens of requests the uses drilling. Now I'm getting strange behavior in a certain scenario...
    I have a request that is a pivot view and contains UNIONs. One of the columns, employee name, is set up as 'Navigate' for the Value Interaction property. The request drilled to has employee name set up as 'Is Prompted' in the criteria.
    If the main request is displayed as a table view, the drilling works fine - the drilled to request opens with the intended employee that was clicked on in the main request. However, if the main request is a pivot view (which is the view I want) instead of a table view, the drilling does not work as intented - the drilled to request opens with all the employee names. I just want to drill on the clicked upon employee, not all the employees.
    I'm using OBIEE
    Any suggestions as to why this would work as a table view but not as a pivot view?

    The best solution is to define hyperlink for the detail report in the report column itself. Change the expression of column to HTML hyperlink. (Make sure value interaction is disabled) Use Go URL syntax to navigate to detail report and pass parameter, something like below:
    <pre>'&lt;a href=”saw.dll?Go&Path=/Shared/ReportName&Action=Navigate&P0=1&P1=eq&P2=Emp.Name&P3=’ || Emp.Name || ‘">’ || Emp.Name || ‘&lt;/a>’</pre>
