Firefox Plugin Messed Up

Q: Firefox Plugin Messed Up

I like to visit Gamespot forums and when trying to watch videos on the site I get the firefox missing plugin thing. So I clicked on it and it said "Unknown Plugin" I tried to manually install it and it goes to Windows Media Player 10 on Microsofts website... but I already have Windows Media Player 10... so I tried downloading the Netscape plugin and it acted like it was working and all except the videos don't buffer correctly. If there anyway I can get Firefox to reconize Windows Media Player (The right one not netscape I'm assumeing) as my default media player on Firefox so I can watch the videos on Gamespot? I know thats Windows Media Player doesn't read MPG videos but these videos are WMV I believe.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Firefox Plugin Messed Up

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Firefox Plugin Messed Up

You can see if the WMP is recognized in Firefox by typing about:config in the address bar and hit Go. You can check and see if you have the correct listing here, Embedded Windows Media in Firefox. If any of these entries are missing, the Windows Media Player plugin is not properly installed and you can scroll down and follow the guide to restoring and configuring the plugin for Firefox.

A:Firefox crashing (plugin container for firefox has stopped working)

Go to Index page ? mozillaZine Forums ; on the right-side of the screen, in the search box for Boards, enter "plugin container crashes" (without the quotation marks) and read some of the threads, which may lead you to the solution.

My quick look at a few of those threads indicated that hardware acceleration may be the culprit; if you need help with that, do another search for that subject.

There was an amusing incident on mozillaZine recently concerning hardware acceleration: One person posted a vituperative message blaming the moderators for frequently suggesting turning off hardware acceleration on the grounds that doing that had never helped a single person.

The very next thread I read was from a person thanking the moderators: He had been told to try turning off hardware acceleration, he did so, and his problem was solved.

I was having problems with too high physical memory usage(highest was 73%) causing my PC to respond slower even during winexplore. I started uninstalling unnecessary programs and disabling unnecessary processes, when I noticed that plugin-container.exe is taking up 23,xxx KB memory while firefox takes up 400,xxxKB. Is this normal? Is there any way I can tone Firefox down to further lessen my PC's physical memory usage? As of now, it's down to 36%.

I usually run either Fraps, Skyrim, or Azureus Vuze while using Firefox. Current active plugins for Firefox are:
Quicktime plugin
Java Platform
Java Deployment toolkit
Shockwave Flash

Is it possible to install the VLC plugin on Firefox 46.0.1 (64 bit) ? Perhaps manually, somehow ?
I installed VLC 2.2.3 (64 bit) and enabled the plugin for Firefox, but it is still missing from the Firefox plugin list.
It seams that this plugin is working only on 32 bit versions.
However I need the VLC plugin for Firefox, because many streaming video sites use this plugin. Or perhaps there is an alternative.
Thank you.

Select the Mozilla Plugin when installing VLC Media Player. The installer will then automatically detect your browser and install the plugin.

Recently I added a plug-in for Firefox that enabled it to act as does Internet Explorer. (I believe it permits active X content on Firefox but not absolutely sure) Unfortunately, my hard drive died and I had to replace it, losing all information on that drive. I have reloaded everything, except for that plugin, which I cannot recall the name of and cannot find. I have an insulin pump for my diabetes that requires Internet Explorer to load and review blood glucose values. I am one of those that absolutely hates internet Explorer. I have had to use it with my pump until I installed that plugin for Firefox. The plugin worked great. Does anyone out there know the name of it, or where I can download it? Thanks very much.

Hi everyone, I have been using Firefox 8.0 for a while and so far, my laptop have been running very slowly. So far I disabled all my add-on and still runs slow so the last thing I want to cleanse is the plugin and I don't know which plugin are useful. Can someone please tell me what the red squared plugins do? My laptop is a Compaq Presario C306US, Window XP, Home Edition, Version 2002 Service Pack 3 with an Intel® Celeron® M CPU, [email protected] 1.73GHz, 504 MB of RAM. Thanks again for helping. Here is the Picture:

A:Mozilla Firefox Plugin

It looks like the two "downloadUpdater" plugins are the culprits. They are related to AOL in some way, but I'm not sure how. In any case, they are not necessary for Firefox to function properly and you can safely disable them (in fact, I recommend it.)

The Java plugins are safe and legit. They allow you to use applets written in the Java programming language. They usually don't cause any issues. You can leave them enabled, or you can disable them anyway since few websites use Java applets.

The Microsoft DRM and Windows Media Player plugins all relate to Windows Media Player. They allow you to watch WMP, WMA, and other Microsoft media formats directly in the browser. These plugins come from Microsoft, are safe, and generally don't cause issues. Disabling them will not likely affect your browsing experience.

If you upgraded your FF you may/may not have problems with it's plugin-container.exe. It apparently causes crashes/lock ups of FF on some systems, slowdowns on others.

I saw some reports associated with this file, which takes up (in some instances) an inordinate amount of RAM, thus causing the browser to lock up.

Some AV/Malware programs are registering it as Malware.

On a personal note, it really does bug me that the file REQUIRES internet access (*and there is no option to bypass or disable it). If you don't allow it, some sites that require flash just won't load.

Aside from that, no problems with the new browser.

For release notes:

How else do you expect it to get content that resides online then? To put it into perspective, when Firefox encounters a plugin required container (object, embed) in the HTML it diverts those off to plugin-container.exe to handle and download the necessary resources it supports. So of course it needs access to the internet. It would be no different denying Firefox internet access.

I have Vista Home Basic x64 and Firefox 3.02 for about two months. During that time, I've installed two of the more important plugins manually, Shockwave Flash and the Windows Media Player plug-in.

As far as the Shockwave Flash, I've always had a question about it First, Is it the same thing as Adobe Flash? According to the FAQ on http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/faqs/flash.html, it is not. It specifically states that "Shockwave Player does not include Flash support. You will need to install Flash Player separately".

So now I'm a little confused! My initial Flash install was for Internet Explorer 7. That was before I had a chance to install Firefox. During that installation, it installed all of its files in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash.

Inside Flash are all kinds of files, including two that you can update, FlashUtil9f, which according to http://kb.mozillazine.org/Flash is for Shockwave Player and NPSWF32_FlashUtil, which is actually an exe. I'm assuming NPSWF32_FlashUtil may be for Shockwave Player too.

I've updated FlashUtil9f before, but can't remember if I've ever updated NPSWF32_FlashUtil. I've also never been sure that any of these files or the updates you get from them have anything to do with Firefox.

Anyway, after I installed Firefox, I received that drop-down message about installing the missing Flash plug-in. Then when I clicked "install plugin" it said that the install was unsuccessful an that I w... Read more

A:Firefox plugin questions!

I can't claim to know the answer to your questions, but I am wondering if an uninstall and reinstall of the flash plugin would help? The current versions all have the same number (9,0,124,0) but, as you have discovered, they vary according to whether the browser uses Active X or not.

Perhaps the first thing to try is to upgrade to Firefox 3.0.3, which came out yesterday, because it may include new versions of the plugins you need.

If that doesn't help, you could try the uninstall reinstall option. There is a special uninstaller that you should use, and you can get it here;

Uninstaller; http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/view...4157&sliceId=1 (read the instructions, IE users may need to reboot after running it)

Flash plugin for IE; http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/downl...x/English.html (read the installation instructions, you may need to be online for the install to complete properly)

As you have Firefox installed, you will need the new plugin for it, because the uninstaller will have removed the old one

Recently when I use Firefox to surf on the Internet, I always have like 5-6 tabs opened. After 5-10 minutes, the browser is running very slowly and sometimes at the top bar it says (Not Responding). It is like a performance drop, changing tabs is slow, scrolling down a page is slow. I check the Task Manager it uses like 1907.23 MB of Memory and it shows 99% of Memory used.

I always have to end the Firefox process and open it again and restore my last session. It always use 150-180 MB of Memory at the first minute. But the longer I keep Firefox open, even on Minimize, my computer slows down and again it use 99% of Memory so I have to end process again. This happens over and over again. And when I check my Crash Dumps folder, I saw a lot of plugin-container dump files.

So how do I solve this issue? It's not a big deal though but I want a solution.

EDIT: Firefox is my preferred browser, I don't really like Chrome and not to mention Internet Explorer.

A:Firefox plugin-container

First, make sure you have the latest version of Firefox ie. 38.01
Next, right click on the Title, and select Menu Bar. From the Menu, click on Help->Restart With Add-Ons disabled to see if you experience the same problem.

If the problem is gone then go to Tools->Menu->Add-ons and disable all the add-ons then re-enable one by one until you experience the same problem then you might have a bad add-on.

If the the problem still persist. Tools->Options and create a SYNC account and sign-in. This will save all your Bookmarks, Add-ons etc...
then uninstall Firefox completely.

Next, download and install Firefox again then sign in to SYNC to get back all bookmarks, add-ons etc...

It's because Facebook had the smart idea to replace or add a mp3 file for the popup sound when you get a message. Not sure if they actually replaced the swf file that had the sound in it, but I sometimes get the same error message with Firefox asking for Quicktime and sometimes not... and I never installed quicktime or Itune on Windows 7.

VTzilla is a Mozilla Firefox browser plugin that simplifies the process of scanning Internet resources with VirusTotal. It allows you to download files directly with VirusTotal's web application prior to storing them in your PC. Moreover, it will not only scan files, but also URLs.

I am having trouble installing the Adobe Flash plugin for FireFox.

Flash is however working perfectly well in IE (IE 8).

I am running Windows XP Pro, current service pack and patches.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Flash, uninstalling and reinstalling FireFox, however nothing works. I have checked using the Secunia OSI service, and it reports that I have the current version of Flash installed. When I look in about : plugins however, Flash is not listed.

Hi all

When I try to download the Java Runtime Environment for Mozilla Firefox, it gets halfway through the install, and then a box comes up saying that the file could not be opened, and to verify that it exists.

Anybody know what I'm doing wrong, or what is happening that shouldn't be, and how I rectify the problem.

Remember, I'm starting from scratch with Java for Firefox, so I need the right filename that I should be downloading (just in case I clicked the wrong damn file, which is always possible).

Any help you could give me would be very much appreciated. I'm slowly losing my hair with this one. I may be a technician, like the rest of you, but I only got Firefox a couple of weeks ago, so I'm still playing around with it.

Cheers all, and goodnight from New Zealand.

Twitter has updated their API and my favorite FF plugin/client no longer works.  Although Echofon for FF had not been updated since last year, it was still working fine until twitter made the API change.  So I now need a replacement for Echofon.
Echofon had a small icon in the lower right of my browser.  It showed a number next to it when there were new tweets.  I was able to open it and read those new tweets.  Nothing more, nothing less.  It was small, unobtrusive, and useful. 
Everything I have looked at to try to replace it has been large, bloated, and very obtrusive.  Twitter and other social networking sites are not life, I don't need to be inundated with all the garbage all the time - but I do follow a few people and would like to be able to see when they post new.
I currently have Yoono installed.  But it insists on adding a pinned tab, and a drop down next to the address bar.  Annoying. 
Any suggestions?

A:Twitter plugin client for FireFox

There's at least one option: to use modified Echofon.
I found this today https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=D7A621B6ED74A4C4 at http://the-w.com/replacing-echofon-for-firefox
As the author says,

I don't usually install software from random websites but it's Echofon, and it was a bit of a desperation, so I pulled out the scratch laptop and gave it a shot.

...so did I, and it works well for me (and now client even without Ads )

My Dell Inspiron 1501 running XP Home recently started opening a second tab listing my plugin update status in addition to the home page every time I launch it. I've pretty much exhausted what I've been able to find on the web, which included modifying the about:config list a couple of different ways. I can get it to go away with one of the modifications, but then I get notice a plugin is missing (Flash Player) and videos will not play. Firefox is v14.0.1

Anyone know how to get rid of this pain in the behind

I modified the Google Classic search plugin from the Mycroft site to give 100 results per page instead of 10. This was working on Mac Firefox as well as Windows Firefox until recently. I noticed just now that I am getting only 10 results per page with the Mac, but still 100 with Windows. Why would that be? I modified the plugin with the Mac and then transferred it to the Windows PC, so it is the same plugin with the same modified code on both. Why is that not working any more on Mac OS?

I just tried the Google Canada search plugin from Mycroft with the modification, and it gives me 100 results. I edited the Google Classic plugin to have the same format as the Canadian one except for the hostname, and it still gave only 10 results. Now I am even more confused.

In some videos i watch online firefox requires to install this unknown plugin called x-mplayer2. Where can I get such file since it's not in the mozilla plugin page?
Assistance would be appreciated.

A:Firefox Unknown Video Plugin

It could be caused by 2 .dll files that are missing from your Firefox plugins folder.Try downloading npdsplay.dll, npwmsdrm.dll, and putting them in Firefox's plugins folder, located at C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\pluginsThen restart Firefox, and see if you can watch the video.

I have a problem in my server which involves combination Firefox+QuickTime plug-in. Namely, our web server provider moved their servers and now uses DirectAdmin, though still Apache. And after that QuickTime plugin on Firefox plays .mp3 files only for about 4 seconds. Everything is fine on IE and mp3's are fully functional (and lasting much longer than 4 sec ).
The problem seems to be serverside, because no user with these applications is able to listen these audio files. I have tried to add MIME type to Apache (audo/mpeg .mp3) with no result. I guess solution might include some server configuring or adding scripts to server, but unfortunately I lack knowledge in that area.
If anyone is familiar with that issue, any suggestions would be great.

Best regards,

Yeah, that's basically it. No matter how many times I reinstall Quicktime, it doesn't matter, but it says the same thing! Can anyone help me?

A:I have Quicktime installed but Firefox keeps saying I'm missing a plugin.

Type about:plugins in the Firefox address bar. Scroll down to QuickTime Plug-in. What version is it, and what is the .dll filename? Is there more than one entry for this plugin?

Was prompted to update Java and so I did. After updating Java, I find the Java plugins in Firefox 24 deactivated. The Java Deployment Toolkit plugin and Java Platform SE 7 U45 plugins in Firefox 24 are unsafe to use. See screenshot below:

The two Firefox plugins that are deactivated due to security vulnerabilities are as follows:
1. Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.450.18 10.45.218
2. Java (TM) Platform SE 7 U45 10.45.218

The "more information" link that you see in the above screenshot are:


"JAR file manifest does not contain the Permissions attribute"

My system is:
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
Firefox: 24
Java: SE 7

Anyone who knows how to fix the Java plugin security vulnerability or have further info?
