In Firefox 36.0.4 open about:config and search for media.webm.enabled set this to false and the html5 videos will not play anymore. ;)

When you double-click on the white star to bookmark a URL, a pop-up window appears with three spin boxes: Name, Folder and Tags. If you set the Folder to Unsorted Bookmarks, the bookmark will not appear in the Bookmarks Bar. If you click on the clipboard icon to the right of the star and choose Show All Bookmarks, or do {Ctrl-Shift-B}, you can see all ...

Though I know of no way to "hide" a bookmark within Firefox, there are alternatives to make finding them easier. Make a folder on your Desktop, in the Start Menu or another convenient location for your infrequently used bookmarks, drag your infrequently used bookmarks to that folder and then delete them from Firefox. For each bookmark you can add tags, a ...

Three problems I see: You're missing "!important" on the first rule. "min-height" = minimum height = if the default height was under 16px, it would become 16px; since it's not, your rule has no effect. You're looking for "height" or "max-height". You'll need to shrink the favicon as well, or the tab text will be clipped. Final code: tab .tab-text { ...

Firefox is a bit dumb about printers, it doesn't obey the windows default, but instead pretends it knows better. You can switch it to a more normal configuration by going into "about:config" and setting the option "print.save_print_settings" to false. After that Firefox should not use the last used printer as the "default".

You can use Force Content-Type extension for pdf files with wrong Content-Type response header. For example if web server provides Content-Type: application/octet-stream you can add rule to transform it to Content-Type: application/pdf based on pdf file url, like this:

I would suggest to use the map <C-c> <C-v><C-c> noremap <C-v> <C-v><C-v> Because if you have opened a external text editor, a simple C-c at FF window will end the external editor and you will lose everything. BR

The FlashStopper extension can stop Flash and HTML5 media from autoplaying. It will show the video preview thumbnail instead of autoplaying. Alternatively, the Flash Control extension can be used to show a button or placeholder that should be clicked on before allowing a Flash or HTML5 media to appear. This is from another answer of mine in Is there ...

As @harrymc mentioned in an earlier comment, the problem might lie with Flash and/or other plug-ins that may have malfunctioned. As a temporary workaround, you can force YouTube to use the HTML5 player for playing back videos by visiting this link and clicking on the Request the HTML5 player button.

This is how you disable Autoplay on YouTube: (click the picture to enlarge it) If Autoplay turns back on after you've restarted the web browser or refreshed the page, it probably means that browser cookies that store your Autoplay setting were deleted. You may have set your web browser to do this automatically or you may be using third party software like ...

Since Smart Middle Click didn't work for you, try this: Open the Developer Console (Ctrl+Shift+K) Click one of your links Quickly hit Esc (or the Stop button) before the page changes Middle-click the resulting link in the Console It's a significantly less convenient solution, but it beats what you're doing now, and unfortunately, short of writing your ...

There was once an add-on called "Smart Middle Click" that provided the ability to middle-click JavaScript links. It's no longer available at addons.mozilla.org or the author's website, but I've uploaded a copy for you: http://www67.zippyshare.com/v/7SsmjES2/file.html SMC doesn't work with all JS links, but rarely has trouble with the type you described. ...

This is possible using Menu Wizard. Simply install the add-on, restart Firefox, open the menu containing the menuitem you'd like to change, click the small icon you'll now find in the lower-right corner of all menus, click the wrench icon beside your menuitem, and enter a new value for "Access Key".

Make sure you have Cookies ticked under the History heading in the Settings panel beside Clear history when Firefox closes. If it still doesn't work, maybe try ticking Site Preferences and Offline Website Data in the same panel under the heading Data ?

You can use the h264ify extension. (also has a Chrome version) h264ify is a Firefox/Chrome extension that makes YouTube stream H.264 videos instead of VP8/VP9 videos. Try h264ify if YouTube videos stutter, take up too much CPU, eat battery life, or make your laptop hot. By default, YouTube streams VP8/VP9 encoded video. However, this can ...

I am a great fan of the ViewTube userscript. You will need Greasemonkey (Firefox) or Tampermonkey (Chrome) if you decide to pursue this route. http://isebaro.com/viewtube/ is the main publishing URL for the script. Essentially it creates a container where the YouTube video would normally appear, and you can choose to load the video element via VLC's web ...

Personally I use the Flashblock addon, which (despite the name) also stops autoplay for HTML5 video (and Silverlight, on Windows), by making them click-to-load. You can also whitelist sites where you'd like content to load automatically, and optionally sync that whitelist via Firefox Sync. In further testing (I've had YouTube whitelisted for a while, since ...

The problem is although it appears as if it is a pop up, it is actually just HTML giving the impression it's a pop up. It is often called an overlay. Meaning on some sites, it will be junk (as per the screen shot), but other sites very much required (like a shopping basked preview screen). For FireFox and Chrome, there is a plugin called BehindTheOverlay ...

Just to rule out an add-on issue, hold the SHIFT key when starting Firfox and choose to open FF in safe mode (this temperaraly disables addons). If the problem persists, it's not an add-on issue.

Most web pages are not designed for 1080p screens, as not everyone has one yet. There is most likely CSS limiting how wide the text can go, so that people with smaller screens (1024x768) can still read the web page without having to scroll left and right constantly. Using a tool like Firebug (firefox) or Chrome Developer Tools you can manually edit the ...

Not exactly the answer to the original question, but I found a way to take a nice screenshot of a Sharepoint website. My solution that worked was IE8 + FireShot. Interestingly enough, the same plugin didn't work correctly for SharePoint in Firefox 35.

Actually, these are all correct answers, but involve a lot of work for something that needs done often. What I did is this: Do a MANUAL cleanup of your cookies, making sure you leave alone the ones you need to access sites you want, such as banks, amazon whatever. Close Firefox. Make a copy of the cookies.sqllite file (find it as described above). Save ...

If you press Control+i within an input box vimperator will create a vim's background process (by default with gvim, but you can change it in the editor variable), and you can edit that way, when you do :wq on that vim's process it copies the buffer into the input box Other than that, you can use wasavi, which turn every input text in a vim's clone.

Though I'm not an expert but I've recently configured a domain to get an A+ rating at SSLLabs, so I've been working on it. You have two RC4 suites in there, which is disabled as fallback from Firefox 36+.

Firefox anti-virus "extensions" are usually not extensions at all, but plug-ins masquerading as extensions. FEBE cannot back these up as xpis because they are not built as regular extensions. In fact, if you were to open the anti-virus xpi with a text editor you would most likely see just an URI to the actual code that gets executed. These are what are ...

Some remote desktop applications change Windows theme and color settings for the end user to have better performance. This could have caused the issue. A simple restart would fix everything.

I've never used this, but SoundBunny appears to be exactly what you're looking for: http://www.prosofteng.com/sound-bunny/ Sadly, it's not free, but $10 isn't very expensive either.

You can use this https://addons.mozilla.org/pt-pt/firefox/addon/downthemall/ extension. You're prompted if you want to overwrite the first time but you can select a dropdown option to remember the setting. If your format must be met, this won't work for you, since it has the format "filename_001,filename_002" and i believe you can't change it.

I've seen the 'connection reset' error under different circumstances, but it ultimately resolved to having a 32-bit Flash plugin on a 64-bit system & browser. Not certain, but it's definitely worth investigating. Might even be worth grabbing the full distribution installer just to make sure all the right bits get plumbed in - this address moves around ...

It's probably possible, but it would be much easier to simply open the developer tools click the gear to open the dev tools preferences, then disable js. then the page won't load more content and you can easily scroll to the bottom and right click to inspect whatever you want.

In most cases you can delete files that are inside a tmp or temp folder and multiple days or weeks old. SQLite is a portable database format. etilqs is sqlite backwards.

As far as the *:64203:aurora binding is concerned, your mobile devices need DNS entries mapping aurora to your IP address (I'm assuming 192.168.1.24). For the *:64203:192.168.1.24 binding, I wasn't able to reproduce the error exactly. I would make sure you are running the command from and elevated (Administrator) command prompt.
