Applications :: Firefox Mouse Over Tooltips Not Working

I've been having this problem in 3.5 and 3.6...any time I mouse over text or an image that has a tooltip (the little yellow text box), I just get a blank yellow box. Take xkcd, for example. The main comic (image) always pops up a text box. But all I see is a small blank box, like it's displaying a space or something.

Applications :: Closing Firefox Tabs With Mouse?
Recently made the switch to Mac from PC - after over 12 years of exclusively, intensively using PC. Already I'm loving my MBP, and I've been trying to pick up as many nifty shortcuts as I can.

I couldn't figure out this one: Is there a way to close an individual Firefox tab by clicking it in conjuction with pressing a key? This way, I won't have to go straight to the "x" every single time when using the mouse. Cmd+W works, but only on immediate screen. I used to simply middle click to close a tab, but my new mouse's wheel button sucks!

Applications :: Firefox Stopped Working Completely?
Aa above, Firefox has stopped loading pages. Any pages.

All I get is a white box with 'Search Bookmarks & History' in the search box. (see pic)

I deleted everything FF related from my drive, as well as the app & started from scratch. Downloaded a fresh version from their website, installed, and still nothing. Tried the obvious & rebooted - nothing.

Applications :: Firefox With Spinning Beachball - Safari Working Fine
I don't know what my wife did to her 13" white MacBook, but Firefox is slow as molasses. Safari is working perfectly, but all of her bookmarks are in Firefox. I made sure she was on the correct network, than added opendns settings to DNS. I downloaded and installed the most recent Firefox and repaired permissions on the drive. I rebooted - same problem. Random beachballs causing the app to be useless. Safari works perfectly, so it's not an Internet issue. I haven't tried other apps to be sure but right now it seems confined to Firefox.

Mac Mini :: Dock Opens Up Applications Folder / Firefox Not Working Fine

It was working fine until this morning. Whenever I click on an application in the dock, it opens up the applications folder. And whenever I click a link in firefox, it opens in a new tab, and is incredibly annoying!

MacBook Pro :: Screen / Applications Freeze - Mouse Continues Working
I was using netflix on my macbook pro which is a 13" that I purchased for school back towards the end of july 2010. Its version 10.6.3 and I haven't had any problems with it until today. It has frozen twice today so far, and the first time I was using photobooth, itunes, and firefox. photobooth was taking pictures and then all of a sudden I went to click the button and it wouldn't select. I thought this was weird because the mouse was still moving.

I realized I couldn't click on anything but the webcam was still showing me moving and itunes was still playing the song normally. I did a hard shutdown. I started up my laptop again and went to play a movie on netflix (this movie had been open, but was paused when it froze the first time). I started playing the movie and when to pause it to take a phone call when I realized that it was frozen again because I couldn't select anything. I did another hard shut down and I've been on the web with it since trying to find an answer.

Pages 09 :: Turn Off Tooltips For Tracking Changes?
Does anyone know how to turn off the tooltips for tracking changes(the "hover over" text boxes that appear after a few seconds when the mouse is positioned over a change; not the side bubbles)? It's very annoying. I have to keep moving the mouse in order to avoid tooltips from blocking the text when I'm editing. I want to turn this off but keep tracking on. (Pages version 4.0.3)

OS X :: Mouse Not Working After Wake / Mouse Cursor Is Beachball And Not Spinning
When I wake from sleep, my mouse cursor is a beachball that is NOT spinning. I can use my mouse like normal, move it, and click on things, but its still a beachball. I beleive it stays like this until the mouse is actually supposed to be a beachball (when I open a few programs at the same time and the computer starts "thinking"), then it starts spinning and after that it goes back to the normal black arror cursor.

Might be a problem from the 10.5.3 update? anyone else experience this?

Snow Leopard :: Firefox Ignores Scroll Wheel On Optical Mouse
Installed Snow Leopard on Friday, and I'm only having one problem: Firefox is ignoring the scroll wheel on my Logitech LX3 Optical Mouse. The OS and all other apps seem to be fine. I followed a tip on tuaw to reinstall the Logitech Control Center, but it didn't fix the problem. I plugged in my Mighty Mouse, but it won't scroll either. I can scroll inside a textarea, but not the main Firefox window. Scrolling worked fine before the Snow Leopard upgrade.

OS X :: Flash Not Working With Firefox?
I just got a new mbp. (old one's logic board and cpu died)

With my old mbp(leopard) everything flash related was working perfectly fine.

The new mbp, Flash works with every other browsers such as Safari and Opera.

However, when using Firefox to watch videos or browse websites, Flash thinks my left mouse click is my right click. So whenever I try to pause a video or play it, flash opens up "About Flash Player 10"

OS X :: Quicktime Plugin Not Working In Safari Or Firefox?
I switched from PC to iMac last week . I am very excited by the performance of Mac OSX and display of the new 21.5" iMac. The only problem I face is that quicktime movies are not played in safari/firefox. Safari waits indefinitely for loading the quicktime movie , firefox shows a big 'Q ?'. Don't know what that means.

This frustrating because I can't view any of the tutorial movies in the apple website. It is ironic that apple's own format is not playing on the new iMac.

The OS is Mac OSX 10.6.2 . Flash is playing well in the same machine. I am new to mac .

OS X :: Flash No Longer Working On Chrome/Firefox?
Last few days my flash no longer works.

YouTube videos play (can hear sound) but just a black box, unless I full screen I can see it. All other flash (e.g. Dailymotion, Vimeo) don't play at all.

Works fine on Safari, but not on Firefox and Chrome.

I have uninstalled Flash, no luck.

Is this something to do with the hardware acceleration?

I have a silver unibody MacBook.

EDIT: I'm on 10.6.3 Snow Leopard

Mac Safari :: RSS Feeds Not Working Like In Firefox
I have recently imported an html doc. of my bookmarks from firefox to safari. I noticed that the RSS feeds do not seem to be working the same way that they would in firefox. In firefox, if you scroll through your bookmarks to a web page with an RSS feed, you can see all the RSS feed articles in the web page's sub-menu without having to load the page. I cannot see these live feeds in safari. There are RSS icons in the url bar, which enable you to view recent feed history, but what's the point of an RSS feed if you have to load up the page view the feed. I thought the whole point of feeds was so that you could look to see what was new, then choose to load the page. Once the page is loaded, you don't need the feed. Seems a bit of a false economy, really.

OS X :: Javascript Links Not Working With Firefox - But Do Work With Safari?
I think what I'm talking about are javascript links...when you go to, for example, [URL] I'm talking about the links in the box on the right labeled "Most Watched Video." None of the links IN THAT BOX work for me. By "work" of course I mean go anywhere or do anything. It's as if I'm clicking in an area of a page without links.

This happens for me in other sites with similar links. What gives?!

I've checked Firefox and am running the latest version of javascript. I'm also running the latest version of Firefox 3.6.8. I'm on a Mac OSX 10.4.11 - old system software, I realize, but I simply haven't been able to afford moving beyond this (plus my Mac is a Macbook, 2GB RAM, 80GB HD - old unit).

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Firefox 12 And Java - No Longer Working?
I have 10.5.8 and I think I read that in the latest FF update, Java is disabled and with my version of software, no way to make it work anymore.  Is this true?  I have an onlime game that I think requires Java to play and I cannot access the game today and am wondering if that is the reason.  I could play yesterday, but not today, it hangs when loading.  It could be the game site itself, but I got to thinking about Java and did some research and saw that Java is only supported now in 10.6 and higher.  If it is a java issue, is there any way to get it back and working with my system?  I tried accessing it using Safari, same issue, hangs in same place.

Applications :: What Do You Like About Firefox
I've never been much of a Firefox fan. I think it feels too much like a Windows app, it's not as integrated into OS X as Safari and, in my opinion, it hasn't been as fast as Safari. I have to give it props for having add-ons and extensions but it creates a lot of security problems and conflicts with other extensions. I don't understand why so many people like Firefox so I just want to ask: Why do all of you like Firefox?

Applications :: Unable To Use Firefox
notice the studdery video and scrolling in firefox? I searched on google a while back and found a thread that said it was firefox saving the tabs every 5 seconds that caused the lag. So I set firefox to save them every 5mins or something and that worked for a while but now the problem has returned.

Applications :: Looking For Firefox Extension
Is there a search extension out there that will display the first result from each of your installed search engines as you type? For example, says I type "Adam" and I have google, facebook, IMDB, and Wikipedia as my search engins; the extension would display the first result from google, facebook, etc in the window that pops up as you type. Then if I hit return (without clicking anything that pops up) it would take me to my default search (google).

Applications :: Firefox Is Much Slower?
I have always used firefox. But lately when trying to access web sites it seems to take so much longer. I can open the same website in safari and it is so much faster. I know it has nothing with my internet speed because my download speed is around 16 down and 1 up. I also don't believe it is the DNS because safari can load it much faster. Try different news sites such as or . Both seem to take a lot longer in firefox. Not sure if it has to do with all the adds that are in these pages. I should mention I am running a late 2008 iMac with 4gb of ram

Applications :: Safari 4.0 Better Than Firefox 3.5?
Is the newest safari really any better than the newest firefox? It doesn't seem any faster and there are little things I miss that safari doesn't have.

Firefox has:
3-finger swipe to top/bottom
enter in google bar to igoogle page
better adblock

Fits the "look"
Supposedly faster
dragging tabs looks a lot nicer (animated)
