Applications :: Firefox Mouse Over Tooltips Not Working

Mar 4, 2010

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?

Oct 5, 2010

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?

Nov 10, 2010

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

Nov 29, 2009

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.

OS X :: Mouse Not Working After Wake / Mouse Cursor Is Beachball And Not Spinning

Jun 6, 2008

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?

MacBook Pro :: Mouse Pad Stopped Working But Wireless Mouse Works?

Every once in a while the mouse pad will stop working. A wireless mouse will work in its place.  The keyboard will also act extremely slow during this time.  It seems like the buffer is full and it moves on to the next letter i type without using the previously typed letter.

OS X :: Flash Not Working With Firefox?

Oct 1, 2009

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?

Nov 22, 2009

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?

Aug 13, 2010

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

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Firefox 12 And Java - No Longer Working?

Apr 29, 2012

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.

mbp intel dual core, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

OS X :: Javascript Links Not Working With Firefox - But Do Work With Safari?

Sep 2, 2010

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 V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Gmail Not Working On Safari Or Firefox?

I can't access Gmail on my Macbook or iMac. They both are connected wirelessly and I have tried Firefox and Safari. Right now it's only Gmail that I can't access but sometimes it's the whole Google domain. I've got the correct DNS settings for my ISP as well as running Safari in 64-bit mode. My Windows PC (on the same router as the Macs) connects to the Google domain fine.

Windows On Mac :: USB Mouse Not Working With OS X And Win7

Sep 26, 2010

I successfully installed Win7x64 on my 13" MBP. I got the drivers installed and everything updated. My USB mouse stopped working both in OSX and Win7. Anyone got any ideas? I researched online and I am running the latest bootcamp with the latest drivers. It's strange because prior to installing win7, my USB mouse was working fine on OSX. It's not the port. I tried sticking in a external hdd in both slots and both slots function.

Mac Pro :: Mouse Gets Start Up Disk Working?

Oct 30, 2009

We have three Power Mac G4's here at our office which have been salvaged for parts in other machines for some time now. We decided to piece together a G4 to play a video in our lobby during office hours. One that would shut down and boot up at required times and automatically play the video file.

I got the pieces working in a G4, and I then formatted and did a clean install of Tiger on a spare working HD we had laying around. After the installation, I ran Software Update and got every last update installed and ready to go. The video plays fine, etc.

Now the weird part:

Every time I shut down, when I boot back up, I get an blinking OS9-style blue folder-? in the middle of the screen.

After trying a few times, I decided to attempt to re-install Tiger. I obviously couldn't eject the DVD drive without being in the OS, so I did what any Apple guy would do, and held down the mouse while booting to force the drive to eject.

Then I got the good ole' gray and white Tiger boot up screen. Tiger loaded quickly and everything was just fine.

I doubled checked the Startup Disk settings, and everything was fine there.

I checked the time/date and made sure it wasn't the Logic Board battery failing to hold data, however the time/date were correct.

Here is a video of the situation to drive home the point:


What... oh what... is going on?
