For some reason all of my ad ons and plug ins have to be reinstalled every time I restart firefox. I don't know how or why they keep getting disabled or uninstalled. Help?

My downloaded toolbars and ad ons have to be "reinstalled" every single time I restart. I have no idea why this is happening.

Try reading [[Preferences are not saved|Preferences are not saved]], specifically the "Resetting preferences file" section.

    Empty/corrupt library after upgrade/crash
    Hopefully it's not been too long since you last upgraded iTunes, in fact if you get an empty/incomplete library immediately after upgrading then with the following steps you shouldn't lose a thing or need to do any further housekeeping.  Note that in iTunes 11 an "empty" library may show your past purchases with links to stream or download them.
    In the Previous iTunes Libraries folder should be a number of dated iTunes Library files. Take the most recent of these and copy it into the iTunes folder. Rename iTunes Library.itl as iTunes Library (Corrupt).itl and then rename the restored file as iTunes Library.itl. Start iTunes. Should all be good, bar any recent additions to or deletions from your library.
    Alternatively, depending on exactly when and why the library went missing, there may be a more recent .tmp file in the main iTunes folder that can be renamed as iTunes Library.itl to restore the library to a recent state.
    See iTunes Folder Watch for a tool to catch up with any changes since the backup file was created.
    When you get it all working make a backup!
    Should you be in the unfortunate position where you are no longer able to access your original library, or a backup of it, then see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device.
    I've noticed more of these missing library posts of late and a common factor since I started asking is AVG Anti-Virus. It seems it might be at least part of the reason why the library file disappears. Try excluding the iTunes folder from any real-time scanning process.

  • HT2417 My wife and I have I Phones.  For some reason all of my contacts ended up on my wife's phone today.  Does anyone know how this could happen?

    My wife and I have I Phones.  Today for some reason all of my contacts appeared on my wife's phone.  What would cause this? 

    This could happen if you are both syncing to the same contact source, such as with the same iCloud account, or to the same supported program on your computer (e.g., Outlook).

    For some reason all my ringtones that I have purchase have disappered on my iphone and itunes on my computer. How do I get them back? They are not on my purchase list.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    The easiest thing to do would be to sign into your iTunes account on your computer, connect your phone and sync. iTunes should copy anything from your phone that isn't already in your library on the computer.

  • I have an external hard drive which has my i-photo on it & some movies from i-movie that I have on disk now. But for some reason my ehd has a caution symbol on it & I can't move my event to free up space on my hd so that I can export i-movie events. Help!

    I have an external hard drive which has my i-photo on it & some movies from i-movie that I have on disk now. But for some reason my ehd has a caution symbol on it & I can't move my event to free up space on my hd so that I can export i-movie events. Help!

    Usually the caution symbol means that it's formatted as a PC compatible format like NTFS or most likely FAT32. For iMovie to use it the ehd must be formatted Mac OS Extended. Then iMovie will show it without the caution symbol and you can drag/drop open any Event/Project from that hard drive.
    To find out if it's formatted as PC:
    Go to the desktop, holding down the Control key click on that ehd and in the pop-menu choose 'Get Info'
    Under Format: It will say whether or not it's Mac OS Extended (Journaled). The only way to undo a PC formatted ehd would be to copy everything off of it first, Erase/Format the drive using Disk Utility in the Applications>Utilities folder on your Mac, choosing the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format in the pull-down menu there.

  • Videos will no longer play and add-ons and plug-ins say up to date?

    My computer no longer plays videos-- whether on facebook or youtube... facebook videos get a tiny square but never open to play-- youtube screen where video should be is blank... all add-ons and plug-ins say up to date. I have comcast internet. Thank you

    Please try two things, please clear the storage for the flash plug in by right clicking where the video should be and clicking "Global settings" and navigate to storage. Clear the stored data and restart Firefox.
    Some problems with Flash video playback can be resolved by disabling hardware acceleration in your Flash Player settings. (See [[Flash Plugin - Keep it up to date and troubleshoot problems|this article]] for more information on using the Flash plugin in Firefox).
    To disable hardware acceleration in Flash Player:
    #Go to this [http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/video-playback-issues.html#main_Solve_video_playback_issues Adobe Flash Player Help page].
    #Right-click on the Flash Player logo on that page.
    #Click on '''Settings''' in the context menu. The Adobe Flash Player Settings screen will open.
    # Click on the icon at the bottom-left of the Adobe Flash Player Settings window to open the Display panel. <br/> <br/>[[Image:fpSettings1.PNG]] <br/>
    # Remove the check mark from '''Enable hardware acceleration'''.
    # Click '''Close''' to close the Adobe Flash Player Settings Window.
    # Restart Firefox.
    This [http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/help01.html Flash Player Help - Display Settings page] has more information on Flash Player hardware acceleration, if you're interested.
    Does this solve the problem? Let us know.

  • Why do I have to reinstall add-ons every time I restart firefox?

    Every time I restart Firefox, all my add-ons have disappeared and I have to reinstall them again. Any idea what I can do about that? Thanks!

    There is software like Advanced SystemCare with its Surfing Protection feature that can protect files in the Firefox profile folder against changes.
    If you have such software then check the settings or uninstall this software.
    It is possible that there is a problem with the file(s) that store the extensions registry.
    Delete the extensions.* files (e.g. extensions.json, extensions.sqlite, extensions.ini) and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry.
    *https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Profiles
    New files will be created when required.
    See "Corrupt extension files":
    *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_install_themes_or_extensions
    *https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Unable+to+install+add-ons
    If you see disabled or not compatible extensions in "Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions" then click the Tools button at the left end of the Search bar to check if there is a compatibility update available.
    If this hasn't helped then also delete possible addons.json and addons.sqlite files.

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, or by a peripheral device. 
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output andWi-Fi on certain iMacs. The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin. Test while in safe mode. Same problem? After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • All of my titles, themes and generators seem to be completely missing from Final cut pro x. Do you know how to get them back?

    All of my titles, themes and generators seem to be completely missing from Final cut pro x. Do you know how to get them back?

    Do you mean that when you click the title browser, for example, nothing is there?
    Do you at least see several categories listed in the effects browser?
    First make sure that you have nothing typed into the search box (not even spaces).
    If you still see nothing, try this in order:
    1) Window->Revert to Original Layout
    2) Quit FCP X, delete preferences using Preference Manager (a free download from Digital Rebellion)
    3) Download FCS Remover, and use it to completely remove FCP X. This will NOT delete your content, just the application.
    4) Reinstall FCP X from the Mac App Store: log in with the same Apple ID that you used to buy FCP X, click on "Purchases", locate FCP X and click Install.
