I've found some pointers to this. First, check what program the system uses for a PDF file. Then, there is the horrible mimetypes.rdf file which stores Firefox preferences for opening applications. It is somewhere in your /home/you/.mozilla profile directory. Then, when something is 'unknown' it will be opened by some kind of guessing algorithm. To ...

This is an old question, but I am also a bit bothered by this.

Well as I know you can find this in about:config just search for "update" and you will get this: app.update.interval This should be the "Interval" between updates which I think is in seconds. Other than you can try to checl others like app.update.silent or maybe it is disabled so check app.update.auto and app.update.enabled and app.update.silent All you ...

How to disable Video in FF In the comments for this enhancement request there is a suggestion (comment 5 at 2012-03-13 15:57:41) to set media.webm.enabled, media.ogg.enabled and media.wave.enabled to false in order to "render <video> and <audio> elements unable to play anything."

Open Firefox while keeping the shift key pressed. You will be shown a dialog box that asks if you want to start Firefox in "Safe Mode" or "Reset Firefox" (or something similar in older Firefox versions). Try to start Firefox in "Safe Mode" to see if this is an extension problem. If it doesn't work try to reset Firefox. As last resource delete your profile ...

The search engine that this field uses is the same one that Firefox uses overall. What I mean by this is that you will get the same search provider if you enter text into the address bar. There are a few ways to change this (note that, for this specific question, only the first will apply, but I've added the second for posterity): Options menu Select the ...

This is what I found that worked perfectly for me without formatting my PC: All you need is GImageX and your copy of Windows ISO. Also, for deleting all the fonts and replacing them, I booted into Mini Windows XP in Hiren's BootCD. Windows 7 won't let me delete them because they are in use. Peace all.

It sounds like Google Chrome is your default browser. To make Firefox your default browser, open Firefox, click the three-bar menu icon and select Options. In the Options dialog box, click Advanced and then select the General tab. Near the bottom of the page there will probably be a button saying "Make Firefox the default browser". If there was no button, ...

This is on Chrome (I can't imagine it being different for Firefox), click the LastPass icon and choose Preferences from the menu. Under the General tab, tick Automatically Logoff when all browsers [...] and set the number of minutes to 0.

I use a combination of NoScript and a plugin called Ghostery. Ghostery specifically blocks known advertising and script farm domains. So even if you do an allow all from NoScript, Ghostery's dictionary still blocks the trackers.

In my experience (with Android) the title bar should reappear just by scrolling up a little. I've never had to scroll all the way to the top of the page to get the browser menu come show except on very short pages. Location on page information is kept until the browser or phone recycles the memory for other uses. If the browser has to reload the page when ...

I wanted to do the same thing, and found that I had to use the Forget About This Site option on the context menu of the History dialog. Deleting the site from the recent history didn't seem to clear the associated cache. Credit to this answer for pointing me to the option.

To duplicate tabs, while keeping the history of the previous tabs, you will have to do the following. Install the add-on "Tab History Redux". It is the add-on that keeps the history of previously opened (browsed through, visited) pages when a link on the current page is opened in a new tab. Install the add-on "Duplicate In Tab Context Menu" (although this ...

Try AdBlock Plus. I presume you have the addon already. Use "Open Blockable Items" to select and create a filter. Along with ABP Element Hiding Helper, this is how I clean up over-cluttered pages.

I found that when using a mac, the problem wasn't with Chrome itself, but it was with the Font Book application. Since it was a public access computer, someone had gone in and disabled some fonts that Chrome used as default, one of which was every Arial variate except for Arial Bold Italic. When I re-enabled those fonts, Chrome promptly switched over to the ...

Try blocking "api.google.com". This should block any web applications that might be circumventing SelfControl's blacklist. EDIT: Removed period from inside of quotation marks so as not to confuse.

No, but you can make a keyboard shortcut for expanding ALL collapsed trees yourself. Here is how: First, download and install keyconfig.xpi addon from http://mozilla.dorando.at/ With this, create an entry: TreeStyleTabService.collapseExpandAllSubtree(false); and bind it to an idle shortcut. The drawback is that, as mentioned, this affects all trees, ...

There are two method doing this: You can use the "Find" function in your web browser to highlight the search domain that you want. But there might be false-positives. Use the Search Specifiers provided by Google. To do so, for example I am searching the word "squirrel", if I only want to search in a petshop domain, I will insert this in the search bar: ...

First I have to assure you that it matters what browser you are using. Unless you are using standard OS print dialog, browser will use its own library to create PDF. Results will vary between different browsers. Just as experiment I have printed this page using Firefox and Chromium. Firefox did not save any clickable links. Chromium saved about 50% and the ...

As others have said, purely client side plugins like yours can be detected via frequency analysis, so no additional information is required. For server-interactive plugins and extensions, the list of installed/active browser plugins is available to websites as part of your agent information. This is not just true of Firefox, but of every major browser. See ...

I hope someone finds this useful. I recently replaced my old computer and needed to set up Firefox again. One of the main things I wished to reinstate was a Greasemonkey script which changed the background colour of any website. I was therefore a little annoyed that I couldn't find the one I'd used before. Long story short - here is the one from my old PC. ...

Their technical support may be wrong IMHO. It really sounds like something that they updated on their end, but messed up (perhaps their webadmin has a redirect going to a nonexistent page on their end), especially if you are getting the same result on a different browser. If you have a smartphone available with a 3G/4G connection that's not on your Wifi, ...

I don't know if there can be a generic solution to disable that effect as the way that functionality is implemented on each site can vary. For example, this implementation shows an alert with selected text when a user selects text as that action is bound to the mouseup event. I was able to disable that effect by writing a bookmarklet that unbinds the ...

According to http://mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all the latest version of Firefox for OSX is v32. You might want to get the latest version. That is probably why it is suggesting that you update.

In case anyone still needs a solution: I use a software called Proxifier. It forces all applications to use any proxy server you may be connected to. All you need to do is set up the proxy network details, including authentication credentials and you're good to go. So you might find a lot of applications that require an internet connection but have no option ...

So partial thanks to some answers, but instead of closing chrome, I copied all my helvetica fonts (i'm a designer, i had 50+) into another folder. Since it detects which is in use... I decided I'd rather delete that one instead to at least get rid of the boldness which was fine by me. So, closed chrome and as I guessed i was able to delete the Helvetica ...

In case anyone cares on this, I did find out a better way to achieve this. Registering a new URI scheme (a registry entry in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT) that launches a helper script to modify the URL as necessary. This gave us more flexibility to work with other sites if needed. Here are the relevant links: ...
