The OCSP connection, like standard HTTP connections, made by Firefox may be affected by addons, notably ad blockers. To verify the issue, take the normal path of disabling the addons, and then once the addon is identified, leave it enabled and disable the ad blocking subscriptions, to narrow the cause. However, each test must be run after a clean restart of ...

A bit late on replying to this question, but anyway there goes my 2 cents. I've been using the multi-version + multi-profile dance with FF since version 2.0 or 3.0. An added bonus is profile portability between different computers and different Windows versions. Let's see the basics: Install as many FF versions as you wish to, each in its own directory. ...

You can also use Search and Replace for Firefox, which closely resembles the typical "Search & Replace" function in editors: A simple addon that enables you to find and replace text on the webpage you are currently on.

Searched and found this, while its for Chrome it should also apply for Firefox. Below is the original answer by "Ashi Krishnan". So its mostly caused by ISP's DNS and should disappear with a public DNS. The problem is that your ISP is running a domain "helper" that responds in the affirmative to every server it's asked about. So when Chrome asks if ...

The mount point for the USB drive could be different on different machines, so you need to use a relative path. Assuming the bin directory is in root of your USB drive (/media/administrator/2FE50BF119A67FE4), the just do ln -s ./bin/www/index.html "Khan Academy" from the root of the USB. However, you still may not see what you expect in your browser ...

ln -s bin/www/index.html "Khan Academy" only works if you are positioned at the right place, as it's a relative link. Are you sure you want to do that? (I suspect you want /bin/www/index.html) Check, after you made the symbolic link, where Khan Academy points to with: ls -al "Khan Academy" I'm quite sure Firefox is the same in lubuntu as on the other ...

It's not encrypted, it's compressed. In your request, you send "Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate" so the server is compressing the response for optimization. You need to remove the -H "Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate" and you should see the normal response.

Perhaps input the path of firefox.exe as I think it searches for the .exe file only in the Windows/System32 folder of your drive. You could also delete explorer.exe and move your firefox installation to the Windows/System32 then input firefox.exe into the Shell input.

I was just looking for the same thing! What about this ghack. Tested on Firefox 38.0.5, Yosemite 10.10.3. UPDATE Installing thintabs made the trick for me. But, according to the article, you can also do it manually: The advantage is that you don't need to install add-ons for the operation, the disadvantage that it takes a minute longer to complete. ...

Clearing the cookies won't remove the passwords and bookmarks. The passwords and bookmarks info are saved in a folder named profile. It is a folder which is independent of firefox so that even if you remove firefox your info will not be lost. In ubuntu it can be found at ~/.mozilla/firefox. Read this for more info

Press ALT and then click Tools -> Options (OR click the hamburger -> Options) In the General tab, there is a panel called Startup. In here, you need to uncheck "Enable multi-process Firefox Developer Edition" (e10s)

Here's a guess: the Alt+Tab back to xterm does not really place the focus inside the VT100 window. Even one pixel off can produce a problem when you have composed keys, e.g., between scrollbar and the VT100 window. xterm adds key-translations to allow you to type "anywhere" on its overall window, but the XIM code does not allow multiple windows to act as ...

In Firefox Firebug, under the Net tab, there is an option called "Disable Cache". I flip this on when doing redirect testing, and I have it flipped off otherwise.

I believe these warnings result not from the settings you have modified, but from an automatic update, which you probably didn't notice. All major browsers cease support for SHA-1 certificates, and so does Firefox. You can try to install an older version of Firefox to confirm my guess.

Most multilingual people don't find it a problem to switch the language via right-click -> Languages. I also find that Firefox has some knowledge of website/language combinations, because often I don't need to manually switch the language when in a website that always uses the same language.

Software in general is unfriendly to us bilingual users. No web browser offer this functionality built-in. Some operating systems do, however.

This might be due to following reasons: You zipped the main directory of extension files. You must zip all the sub directories of main directory.

Turns out the answer is as simple as “reload the page”. When reloading, the best suited image is loaded in Chrome, Firefox and Vivaldi alike. Opera, on the other hand, does not seem to be using hires images even after reload.

Make sure you have your proxy configured correctly. I use the manual setting. Also check the "Do not prompt for authentication if password is saved". Then initiate a page load, for example www.google.com, just so that Firefox asks for your proxy user and password. When Firefox asks you to save the password, please do so. Then, please install the ...

There are several additional options: You can switch to Instapaper (export links from Pocket, and then use Instapaper "Import from pocket" setting) and use my native instapaper plugin for pentadactyl. If you have some time and willing you can adopt vimperator plugin for readitlater (pocket) for pentadactyl. It isn't so hard as you can expect.

Before anyone blindly turns off that warning by disabling OCSP, double-check that it's really not a client issue. Turning off warning messages is something you only do if you have a VERY GOOD reason and you know what you're doing - or if you are the White House, where "the alarm system had been switched off due to complaints from staff that it was too ...

Check that Firefox is set to remember your history when the session closes: Go to about:preferences#privacy Check that either Firefox will: is set to Remember History.

Auto-refresh on mobile browsers is just standard behavior. There's no option to prevent it from happening, and most of the time it pulls the page out from the cache anyway instead of grabbing it from the server. As for desktop browsers, all you have to do is not refresh the page. Just create a new tab, follow the login process, and then you are safe to ...
