I use the latest FireFox as my default browser. On some sites I keep getting notices that I need to enable JavaScript.
" You need to have JavaScript enabled in order to use the new design". That is from yahoo mail.

In most cases I have to use IE 7 to get on the site. I looked in my FF browser & I HAVE all JavaScript enabled!!
Tool>Option>Content Then I have, Load images automatically-Enable JavaScript & Java all ENABLED. Can anyone help figure out what i'm doing wrong.

Do you have JavaRuntimeEnvironment installed on your computer, and if so, is it the latest version?
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Ok so I went and DL the latest version of JavaRuntimeEnvironment 5 update 11. After i opened it it said i had other versions of it running and had to use add/remove program feature to uninstall the other version. I did that. I saw 2 types: JavaRuntimeEnvironment 5 update 6 & JavaRuntimeEnvironment 5 update 8. I removed both. then installed the newest one. I then went to the link that I originally posted from yahoo. It still says " You need to have JavaScript enabled in order to use the new design". I'm not sure what the problem is. You think it might be the same reason why I have a hard time playing video links from popular web sites like ESPN-CNN & FOX? I have a lot of extensions running with F.F. could 1 of them be causing a trouble. My Bro said some extensions don't "play well with others".
Here are some specs from my browser:

-Latest ver. F.F.
-Pop up block-ON

-Adblock +
-Adblock hidden element
-customize google
-Dictionary lookup
-download statusbar
-firefox showcase
-IE tab
-IE view
-mediaplayer connectivity
-PDF dowload
-skpe add-on
-tabbrowser preference
-US english dictionary
-video downloader

Now I know thats a lot, but would any of these interfere with Java Script or video playing. (most of these were added recently after the Java & Video were already not working) So any help would be nice.
-Any advise of which add on to get rid of?
-Do all these add ons hurt/effect my browser stability & speed?

Noscript would block it, if you haven't allowed the sites in question.

Have you tried Firefox Safe Mode?
