As far as I know there is no way to directly create a live bookmark from within Firefox. However, the following (not necessarily convenient) procedure should work for you. Save the following HTML file to a local file on your disk: <!DOCTYPE NETSCAPE-Bookmark-file-1> <!-- This is an automatically generated file. It will be read and ...

Firebug already tries to be smart and does complete d to display. In case you type v it completes to visibility. The code for this can be found here: https://github.com/firebug/firebug/blob/77b0d5620227852757b8a9c1d6167a44f7210172/extension/content/firebug/css/autoCompleter.js#L32 So if you want to change these defaults, you need to change them within ...

Your screenshot doesn't look like a standard Google Results Page. My best guess would be that you have some malware on your system. You'll need to scan your system, find the malware and delete it. Try CCleaner and Ad-Aware and SpyBot Search & Destroy (all free) from Download.com. You might also try uninstalling Firefox and all extensions and then ...

Check to see if you have an "hunspell-en" package installed. Firefox will make use of any Hunspell dictionaries that are installed. These dictionaries are also used by LibreOffice however, so the solution is not as simple as just removing the package. Firefox looks in /usr/share/hunspell for dictionaries, so any ones that you do not want Firefox to use will ...

If you want a warning you could use various Firefox plugins: SSleuth It shows a value of how secure your connection is - SHA-1 leads to low score. CipherFox Similar, but warning not very prominent. CipherFox Secure Fork of the above with more features.

The spell checking in PSPad sucks for German as it is case-insensitive. I recommend using the free Notepad++. It comes with a plugin called DSpellCheck that supports Hunspell. With the symlink method mentioned before, you should be able to use one set of dictionary files for pretty much every writing task.

I have dropped Xmarks for the same reason as you have. Same with Firefox Sync. Then I put my whole Firefox profile in Dropbox (or any other sync service really) and was happy since then.

It seems all those settings are ignored and Firefox just uses a setting in the registry. Change the following keys in the obvious way: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MozillaPlugins@java.com/JavaPlugin\Path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MozillaPlugins@java.com/JavaPlugin\Version ...

I've had good experiences with FavIcon Reloader, but unfortunately it's sometimes very hard to find exactly how to bring up its window. Currently, you can right click on one of your bookmarks on the Bookmark Toolbar to bring up a menu, this should have an option to bring up the FavIcon Reloader window.

The option you refer to looks like it only applies to domains that are not trusted. When I whitelisted reference.com and sfdict.com the embedded player worked as intended. You will want to whitelist those two domains to get the player to work inline.

Episode #481 of the Security Now! podcast touches on the related subject of Certificate Transparency. The question "which CA's can I trust?" is replaced by "which certificates is known to represent a given site?". Once RFC 6962 is universally deployed it allows us to detect that the "Hong Kong Post office CA" (aka the Chineese Government) has issued a ...

A long time ago I had dinner with Daniel Lewin, one of the founders of Akamai and we talked a little about Akamai's technology. Back then he was using dynamically distributed content where parts of content would or could reside on multiple hardware. The front end servers would receive a request, and then decide which servers at that moment would deliver ...

It's the new version. Firefox 32 is fine in this respect. (Might be a security risk, though.)

Not sure if this will help anyone else, but in my case i thought that it was a bad password that firefox was storing when i couldn't access a site with basic HTTP authentication. But it turns out that site was actually using NTLMv1 (windows version of basic http authentication) which firefox has now disabled by default since version 30. To enable go to ...

I am using Firefox Sync because I use Firefox as my primary browser, but Firefox Sync completely messes up my bookmarks, creating duplicates each time I log on to one of my computer. Seems to work only for a single-computer setup, which is quite outdated nowadays. Xmarks has been discontinued since months. Last time I tried it because the website came back ...

Here are some steps for removing the extension. Go to AppData folder in your user folder. Then, Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ After this, there will most likely be one profile. Open this and then the extensions folder. Try to find the extension and delete it. The names are not what you are used to, so the task can be rather hard... Hope this helps!

XMarks is a Firefox add-on that gives you control on which bookmarks to sync on the computer profiles of your choice.

From the the page you linked to in your question: Make sure the 32-bit version of Java is installed On 64-bit Windows, if you only have the 64-bit version of Java installed, the Java plugin will not be available. Current Firefox releases are 32-bit browsers and you will need to install the 32-bit version of Java.

Aha. I knew this couldn't have been left out. F2 to open Developer Toolbar. Then you can use cookie list on the command line. This will list each cookie and provide a Remove button.

It's possible the site is being blocked by some antimalware software, which could be a mistake by a heuristic, a malfunction, or a timeout. I've seen this problem intermittently on apparently random sites with Sophos Home Edition, and it's been reported in their forums.

I had the problem where the 3D view button appeared for chrome-only tabs (e.g. about:config) but was not accessible on normal content tabs. At first I thought that my graphics driver had been blacklisted, but fiddling with the about:config options listed in other answers here did not change this behavior. It turns out that, at the time of writing this ...

The easiest way is to copy all the files inside your old profile from your XP machine and put it in the new profile folder from the Windows 7 one.

Colorific https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/colorific-1/ I use it. Colorize web pages by means of advanced controls for hue, saturation, lightness and opacity.

The solution to this without installing add-ons is to modify userChrome.css. If userChrome.css doesn't already exist in your profile/chrome/ folder (or if the chrome folder doesn't exist either) you have to create it: <profile>/chrome/userChrome.css Then add something like: .autocomplete-richlistbox { background: #808080 !important; ...

The autofill is recalling a previous usage of the https URL in your history. To avoid this behaviour for just that URL remove it from the history but if you want to avoid this going forward for all URLs set the Boolean pref browser.urlbar.autoFill to false on the about:config page. http://kb.mozillazine.org/about:config

Try playing with the margins, changing its values, like: menubar, nav-bar, #TabsToolbar > *{ background-color: red !important; margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px !important; } (maybe negative values will do it) If you can't get it right, download the DOM Inspector add-on to analyze your browser's chrome.

The first thing I would suspect is that some of plug-ins leak memory or use it a lot. For example, AdBlock Plus often causes Firefox to increase memory usage significantly. The reason is that it injects large style sheets into every frame. (Ghostery is a more memory-efficient alternative, although it serves a different purpose.) So, as suggested in the ...

I think it's the remains of tuneup pro files that keeps harassing you.
