Foxfire No sound for Wma or Wav files

Q: Foxfire No sound for Wma or Wav files

I have just installed foxfire. I have sound with flash, video, and midi, mid.

I have not sound for wma or wav files. The file settings show windows media player to be used but there are no advanced settings for this in foxfire.

The sound files play on my computer fine, all speakers are working, the sound card is fine. Everything works on Internet Explorer.

I am using WindowsXP Home edition and have not had any problems with sound.

Javascript is allowed, but some of the scripts are blocked even though the websites are on my approved list.

I use .htacess files which work with apache and Internet Explorer but work bizare with foxfire.

Does anyone have an help for these problems.

Thanks so much.

Preferred Solution: Foxfire No sound for Wma or Wav files

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: Foxfire No sound for Wma or Wav files

My website plays a small sound file with IE but not with foxfire. What kind of coding is required to play sound with Foxfire? I tried <bgsound loop="1" src="file:Welcome.wav" />
as that is what Expressions comes up with. Maybe one needs to insert a Flash file or something. thanks in advance

I have been moving form MS internet explorier to Foxfire Browser lately. Seems like
explorier is so slow pulling up pictures anymore. I like to store my webpages into a single file in *.mht format. Is there a way to do that in Foxfire.

ie, since I have installed some antivirous, malware and antispy ware it has
slowed down MS explorier.

Any suggestions?

Ok I am haveing some very interesting issues with my laptop. Ok when I download Foxfire and try to start it it tells me it can connect with the host. My second one is that when I try to use my MSN messneger I tells me that my default gateway appers off line. Also when I try to log into certain websites using my username and password. It keeps telling me invalid password. I don't have a clue whats going on but I assume something is blocking me from doing these things.

Since installing Foxfire, I'm experiencing numerous problems with IE7. IE7 Window opens, then does nothing else, remains white! Before it started this, I had insecure settings, which IE reminded me everytime I opened it, with a strip at the top, "...click here to correct these insecure settings..." I use Foxfire to play online games, but Foxfire doesn't have a shockwave player addon, so I try switching back and forth but now IE won't let me do anything much less play games. Now that Reid has helped me make this pc more secure and clean, I don't know what to do to resolve the problems I'm experiencing now. Sometimes IE7 works, but then it seems to quits working, won't change web pages, won't bring up a different site. I have entered most of my regular sites in Trusted, but I'm still having difficulties. I am not a techie! and need someone's help getting this computer operating efficiently for my daughter. Plus I don't know how to set the security settings so I can play online games without being driven crazy with
this prompt or that prompt. I've changed some settings to enable, others to prompt me if this happens, which seem to be insecure.


Is it too much to hope for, being able to play online games, and have a secure pc? I don't know what to do to fix any of this and allow continued online gaming.

I have bought Webroot Spysweeper to keep my computer clean of spyware because I got a good deal on it when I bought Norton anti virus at this store. I've been very happy with it because it detects and blocks spyware with every website I go to, when I use Internet Explorer. But lately I have been having problems with Microsoft's Internet Explorer: when I up the security and not allow Active-X controls and Unsafe scripts, I can't go to most websites and use all the features

So I downloaded Foxfire because I have heard it is a great and secure Web browser- only Spysweeper doesn't detect or block ANY spyware with Foxfire OR Netscape, and when I checked the list of cookies in the Foxfire program after going to Yahoo.com, Doubleclick cookie was there, which is definately a cookie Spysweeper BLOCKS

Does Webroot Spyware work with Foxfire? If not, is there an antispyware program that works like Spysweeper but with Foxfire? If not, Why not and how can I keep the spyware from getting on my computer in the first place without using Internet Explorer?

By and by, did this post make sense?

Before I run the DDS, etc.
1st I wanted to check with you about having Malwarebytes Premium and Avast (free) anti-virus on my laptop at the same time.
I installed both after reading that a computer needed another anti-virus to work with the Malwarebytes.
Were they wrong?? Should I uninstall Avast?

***I wanted to see if the problem I've been having with Malwarebytes finding viruses all the time - was because of Firefox OR if from my searching, surfing, checking emails, opening news, etc.*****

Below is a copy of 1 of the viruses after scanning with Malwarebytes Premium (2nd time):

PUP.Optional.FreeCauseTB.A, C:\Users\Bet\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\5rd6ovwd.default\FCTB\{771f3037-9885-4423-b50f-a5ede4854e26}, , [840127c8a1dace6850a47a6889795ea2],

Concerning Avast - not sure how good it is -
1st - I scanned with Malwarebytes Pre (viruses were quarantined)
2nd - went online for a short time & did my usual
3rd - I scanned using Avast - nothing was found
4th - I immediately scanned with Malwarebytes Premium & it found viruses - like the one above (I quarantined all - after I copied & pasted to word.
The above may answer my questions - if not, please let me know if I need to complete the instructions for further assistance.

Thank you.

Well most programs auto detect those settings now for you. Is there not a setting like that?

If not my advice is for you to call your ISP(internet service provider) and ask them. When I got the internet for the first time 7 years ago I got a card with all those details on it.

Ever since last week I have been unable to use Mozilla Foxfire, thus forcing me to use IE which is the worst ever for my computer.

The problem appears to be, that, when I click the Foxfire icon, it will appear that it is going to my homepage, but then the error reports and netscape quality feedback thing pop up. Now, I thought this could have been based upon my homepage and maybe pictures uploaded to their page, but that's not the case. When I try to open links via email or look at old AIM logs that open up in an internet window, my computer recognizes that Mozilla Foxfire is my default browser, and the same problem continues to happen.

How can this be fixed?

Thank you.

A:mozilla foxfire problem!

Try and open Firefox in safe mode. Start menu> Mozilla Firefox> Mozilla Firefox(Safe Mode). If Firefox works, then it is an extension or theme that is effecting startup. You can go to the profile folder and delete the history.dat file. Close Firefox and in windows xp go to Run and type: %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ then hit OK. Open the profile folder and delete the history.dat. Restart Firefox and see if it works. You can also create a new profile and see if your old profile is corrupt.

Hello, I'm new here, searched everywhere to find a solution to this, but couldn't find anyone with this exact problem.

My web browsers simply won't load a web page. I am still connected to the internet as I can use AIM, but no page will be loaded by either IE or Foxfire. I've run Ad-Aware, Norton and Spy Sweeper and still nothing.

Any ideas on this one? I can and will post a HiJack log in a little bit (I'm obviously on a different computer right now, had to download HiJack and I will run back to get the log and post).

Any help is appriciated, I know it will probably be easier for you to have an idea of what's going on once I post the HiJack, but just wondering if there has been another thread on this or anything(my searching and browsing didn't find me anything).

Hi - I have an older laptop running XP-3 (2 gigs ram). I also have IE 9 which I HATE (I liked IE-8 better) and also Foxfire 10 (again - I had no problems with Foxfire 9). My problem is that recently, my keyboard is whacky whenever I'm online. It adds extra characters (typically the | sign) as soon as I get into either IE or Foxfire. and types itself once i click in Search and as soon as I backspace them out, they appear again. Also, typically while ONLINE - it skips keys, sluggish and spacebar doesn't always work. This started 2 days ago.

I 'restored' my computer to a week ago - booted with same problem (and I wasn't having this problem 3 days ago). I have to say that up till a few months ago I only used IE but when I installed IE 9 - I couldn't type anymore online....especially on facebook...very choppy, delayed and frustrating.....(how do I go back to IE 8?). So...then I put on Foxfire 9 which worked wonderfully - very slick, smooth, etc. Then a couple of weeks ago it updated itself to Foxfire 10 (which was very upsetting to me). Ever since then, my internet is slower, keys lag a little. I'm thinking about unstalling Foxfire 10 and going back to 9 to see if there's a difference.

The weird part is that when I uses Word - the keyboard is fine (as far as I can tell - I'll test again tonight). It's only through the browsers I seem to have the problem. I picked up no viruses......I have not tried an external keyboard yet (which would probably tell me something).

I already posted a different form of this question, but no one seems interested in helping me, so I thought I would try and be more specific. When I log on to play spades on yahoo.com, IE stops responding. Here are the details:

When I go to yahoo.com, I click sign in, get redirected to the sign in page, then I enter a username and password, then it redirects to the home page. I click on games, it redirects to a games page with many different games. Then I click spades. Next, I redirect to a page listing all of the different spades "rooms". At the bottom of this page it says :http://games.yahoo.com/games/login2?page=sp#stayhere. (I don't know if there is any relevance in the "Stayhere" part of the command) I click a room to open an additional window showing me the different games being played at "tables" in that "room". Next, I click to enter any table I like, opening an additional window and play a game (or as many games as I like at that table). At this point I have three windows open. At some point I exit the game and close that "table" (hence, closing the window), then close the "room" (hence, closing another window). Now I have only the window with all the different rooms displayed. Here's where the trouble comes in. When I click on a room at this point, another window shows on the bottom taskbar, but does not open, and now IE is frozen, I have to control-Alt-delete to exit.

So I can't be of much help there.

You could go check your JAVA and javascript at this site:

Try temporarily disabling your anti-virus, firewall and any popup blockers (including Yahoo! toolbar, if you have it). See if that makes a difference. If if does, you'll have to experiment to find which one is the culprit.

As long as you were able to play Spades before this problem started, you could try a system restore:

Restart your computer into safe mode now. (Tapping F8 at the first black screen) Perform the following steps in safe mode:

Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Now put a tick by Standard File Kill. In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste each of the following lines one at a time then click on the button that has the red circle with the X in the middle after you enter each file. It will ask for confimation to delete the file. Click Yes. Continue with that same procedure until you have copied and pasted all of these in the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box.


Note: It is possible that Killbox will tell you that one or more files do not exist. If that happens, just continue on with all the files. Be sure you don't miss any.

Delete everything in the C:\Windows\Temp folder or C:\WINNT\temp

Not all temp files will delete and that is normal

A:Error Messages using Foxfire

There is no need to delete IE. If you don't use it, it will not be a drain on resoures or cause any security issues. There are some properties of IE that are used by other parts of Windows. I think this is what your problems are centered around. You can try doing a repair on IE through Add/Remove programs or try going thru Windows Update and download/install IE6 again. Maybe others will have more suggestions. Good luck.

This is my first time here so I'm not quite sure I'm in the right place or not. However I would appreciate any help. I have a favorites menu from my start menu. I use it alot but have found since I've been using Foxfire when I bookmark a site it doesn't show up in my favorites menu as it did when I used Explorer. I'm sure the answer is something simply but I just can't seem to figure it out.

Only the top 2/3 's of the Foxfire's browser displays and an error showing the following has me confused.:

Just new to BC and very impressed with depth of info. I certainly appreciate the time and attention given to others
I am using Mozilla Foxfire 10 installed. All had been working fine. Yesterday realized that in that browser I can only open the sites in my bookmarks.The sites that on my toolbar also. Or I can Google it, and then click on the searched site from there. Once in a site I can access other sites that appear in it.
When I open a new tab, and then go to the address bar to type it in and press enter...nothing happens and nothing appears in the Tab button as it , does when clicking on one in the bookmarked sites
I followed the procedure in Tools , removing cookies, history etc. nothing. When I went in to the system info about Mozilla, it shows I think that something occurred on Jan 29 at 5:30 am (lol it could have been me) .
I ran scans and all is clean and safe. Currently using AVG antiVirus 2011.

When I use Internet Explorer all works. I want to stay with Mozilla, I prefer it, and all my treasured bookmarks are there.
I am housebound and not very technically adept so again I do tk for the help

This is what it tells me but, when I use task manager, there is not foxfire running. I have restarted my computer, and still no luck. Not sure what is going on. I have looked all over the tasks and don't see foxfire running. So I can't shut it down. Even turning off the computer and turning it back on didn't work, uninstalled foxfire again. Same problem. Help, Thanks Bunny
