There seems to have been a bug in the EasyList filter list that caused this. See https://adblockplus.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=28431 for discussion on the AdBlock Plus forum. It is said to have been fixed, and updating the EasyList subscription will restore EHH functionality.

If the Slow Connection or insufficient data allocation is the issue here, I suggest changing the New Tab page to about:blank and type your query directly into Search Box (adjacent to URL bar) or the URL Bar itself. That will save you from even loading Google page again and again for every new query.

The problem was that I had a file ~/.local/share/applications/firefox.desktop containing the following line: Exec=firefox -P -no-remote %u That was useful to start firefox from the desktop launcher. However, that's used to control how other applications launch firefox also. Changing the line to this fixed the problem: Exec=firefox %u To continue ...

You can find information on userChrome.css on MozillaZine and MDN As for where the default CSS is, that's actually packed inside the browser/omni.ja file, which is in the ZIP format. The browser chrome should be under /chrome/browser/content/browser. IIRC, if you unpack that file then the browser will prefer (and load) the individual files over the package. ...

For future reference: There's a search engine and page store for your browser, i.e. saves everything you visit. Though Mac OS X only, and I haven't tried it and do not exactly recommend it (it's not saved in the cloud, but you still have to trust the vendor - not open source), but it reflects an idea I've had a couple of years ago. ...

If your cache has not been cleared, and has not had files deleted due to exceeding space limitation, you can see each part of the web page, though not necessarily as it looked at the time you saw it. In the URL bar, type **about:cache* and click on List Cache Entries. If you click on an HTML file (extension .htm or .html), it should call up most of the page ...

We must wait for IPv6 for a real cost-free peer-to-peer phone service Peer-to-peer does work with IPv4; various hole-punching methods have been created. Some work standalone, some rely on a well-known "helper" server. If I remember correctly, Hello uses STUN for this, and Mozilla host their own STUN servers – it doesn't require a lot of resources since ...

Because a rule for a generic ID (like #main) or class name (like your own example, .sidebar) would break millions of sites. It is very common to have relevant content on a sidebar, like the "How to Edit" and "How to Format" sections that appear when you create a page on this very website (Super User). They don't want users who don't know what they are ...

I would suggest looking into a library called Selenium. It also exists as an extension for Firefox, but I would install the lib as well to play with the code that the extension generates. Personally, I used Python. The extension acts as a recorder for all the actions you perform in your web browser. Once you are done recording, it will attempt to generate ...

You are getting an up to date list of blacklisted URLs that are known to contain phishing and malware. The update happens shortly after startup and once again every 30-45 minutes. Mozilla claims the following: "No information about you or the sites you visit is communicated during list updates... in the event that you encounter a reported phishing or ...

I found my own solution for the problem. I’m using a modified version of the Firefox add-on AutoAuth. Normally this clicks the OK button when you visited a HTTP Authentication dialog before and saved username and password. I modified the plugin so that it always cancels the dialog. It’s working very well on Firefox 35. My Java Code: public class Main { ...

1) Uncheck "Use a background service to install updates". This is safer as long as you don't mind being bothered by the User Account Control dialog. At least you could stop the installation if necessary. 2) You selected "Automatically install updates" so of course it won't ask for your permission. If you want to know first, select "Check for updates, ...". ...

Firefox now includes a video chat interface called Firefox Hello. If your system is clean, any new firewall rules that weren't required before are likely related to it.

So here's the issue how do you determine whether it's just your system, something in your network, something upstream? Application specific seeminly...

Well for one thing black only takes less power on a OLED screen because the pixels themselves create the light rather than having a separate backlight. Most OLED screens I have seen have been in phones rather than laptops. Software is not likely to be all that accurate at doing this.

You can do this by writing an add-on that will add a menu to Firefox. The Add a Menu Item to Firefox tutorial explains how this can be done using the Add-on SDK from the Mozilla Developer Network. There might be some other existing add-ons out there you can leverage which will modify the menus for you as well, but using the Add-on-SDK is not too difficult ...

I've written a simple addon that takes you to google.com when you press Ctrl-K in Firefox. It can either replace the current tab or open a new tab. And you can change google.com if you want to use a different search engine. You can also change the key combination. The addon is called Keyboard Shortcut and you can download it here: ...

For a list of all keyboard shortcuts in FireFox, visit this website. For information on tab shortcuts, scroll down about halfway. I believe the one you are looking for is Insert or Shift+Insert.

I know i'm a bit late, but i think the best solution is using Fiddler to block access to the redirected url. I think adding an autoresponder to that url so that it returns the 204_NoContent.dat response would do the trick. This works at least on Firefox. Another option might be to return some content in the form of a download using "content-disposition: ...

You need to specify a SocksPort in the torrc file on the IP of the network where you want to expose the proxy. Note that the port must be different to the one used for the local connections (9050 by default). Given that the IP address where you Tor runs is 192.168.2.10 you should add: SocksPort 192.168.2.10:9100 Also I have set a SockPolicy to accept the ...

There are two ways to select a search engine in newer versions of Firefox: from the icon list that shows as soon as you start to search, which is a single-use change, or by selecting Change Search Settings, and select Default Search Engine from the list -- this setting stays in place. You can also get to that dialog from Tools -> Options -> Search.

You can change the selected search engine by doing the following: Type about:config in the address bar. Click on the "I'll be careful, I promise" button. Change the following entries: browser.search.selectedEngine = Google keyword.URL = http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&q=

It won't scroll up or go Home because the script keeps telling it to go to the end. You would have to cancel this function to do something else

a friend yesterday told me we can manage search engines as bookmark entries . bookmarks can have a keyword property . bookmarks with this property are search engines . a %s in the url is replaced by the search pattern . and bookmarks take effect immediately we modify them . the built-in bookmark manager can edit bookmarks . we can organise bookmarks into a ...

As @JakeGould says, these infinite scroll things are not standardized, so in general, each workaround is going to be site-specific. But if you accept that, there are ways to automate the scrolling, such as SikuliX - automate it based on image recognition of the "load more" or whatever button you have to click. User scripts - a general term for a script ...

100% no. There is no common and standardized way infinite scrolls work so there is no way to create a common tool; each site would be idiosyncratic to the way the site is designed. Sometimes they are based on “off the shelf” libraries that work with jQuery for example and other times they are completely custom coded on a a per-website basis. Regardless, ...

OK, I got it. The easy way was to start Nightly in safe mode: firefox --safe-mode This started Nightly with almost every add-on, extension, etc. deactivated. I was able to then run the update normally from the "About" submenu. But I decided to dig a little deeper. It is possible to install updates directly from the command line. The Mozilla Wiki has an ...

Have you tried using -no-remote and a -profile <path> as parameters for that second call. (doing it from command line resp. creating and editing a respective windows shortcut). Without -no-remote, any 2nd, 3rd “opening” just opens a new window of the already-open firefox profile, no matter what it is, no matter, what -profile says... (I believe, also ...

I encountered the same on a much more recent FF 31. With an installed (non-portable) Firefox. — See the last of the common causes on mozillazine. In essence, don't start your default profile with -no remote. You may specifiy a -profilepath. No problem with that.

To the left of the window you show in your question should be "Additional Tools and Features" which contains the available toolbar buttons. You can drag and drop these buttons onto an open toolbar.

You could try on Classic Theme restorer which would give you; Squared tabs, AppMenu, Add-on bar, small button view, and many more 'old' features for Firefox 29+. Which could help to make Firefox better

Might be a bit paranoid, but I would add the requirement that after the .net no letter or dot is allowed for the first character. If there is a top-level domain .netmal or .net.au (like there is .com.au), someone could go out and register stacksnippets.netmal/stacksnippets.net.au and run their malware there. So something like: ...

Quick work-aroud: 1) Invoke Task Manager using Control Alt Delete simultaneously. This will "shortcut" some rogue processes, e.g. hanged macros, runaway addons, etc. This should give you back your keyboard system-wide (but not always in Firefox... more on this next). You can then simply exit Task Manager when its window has appeared. It only needs make one ...

"Allow all this page" allows all the scripts that the current page refferences (from any domain). The gottcha is that those scripts may add refferences to additional domains that are still blocked.

According to the report from ssllabs you are missing chain certificates.

I would definitely consider using python with module called selenium. You can automate any browser actions easily (even headlessly with PhantomJS).
