@ColinRichards See also How to fix preferences that won't save. There are different options you could try including Reset Firefox which is the easiest.

comment How can I get Google Hangouts chat to work via Tor browser?
hi, FYI: though Tor is safe, the stream is visible in a network capture (the contents, destination etc. aren't decipherable though). If she has signed any sort of agreement or, a company policy warning is always shown when starting the PC/browser etc., Tor usage could be dangerous. Also, hypothetically, the company could capture the undecipherable stream and later potentially use it for any data loss issue etc. though she was just chatting.

comment My sent email is contains the current computer date for no reason
i.e. Gmail signatures, Firefox extensions (Add-ons), Gmail labs. Also, some anti-malware software may insert text towards the end, (it is usually configurable in the product).

comment How to close pages like this without killing firefox?
It seems to be a phishing page (as of now), and should be blocked by default in Firefox. Is Block reported web forgeries manually disabled in Tools (Alt + T) > Options > Security. See also Malware, and Phishing protection.

comment Even though FireFox portable is set as default browser, it doesn't launch when I press the keyboard key to launch web browser
So you would most probably want to use FirefoxPortable.exe.

If firefox.exe is launched directly, it'll use the Mozilla Firefox built-in defaults and launches the session/profile from AppData. FirefoxPortable.exe uses the settings in FirefoxPortable.ini (in the same folder) instead. This is also why the differences in add-ons, settings etc. between firefox.exe and FirefoxPortable.exe.

Some multimedia keyboards are user configurable via either a Control Panel or Start menu icon. The multimedia keys can be configured to the desired program's exe this way. The website doesn't seem to indicate this option but you could still try contacting the support to make sure. OTOH, if the keyboard is automatically obtaining the values from a predetermined registry location, you could try changing the value firefox.exe to FirefoxPortable.exe (including the relevant path) there.

comment Prevent Firefox Sync on startup
@Blaise Sync timers could be helpful?? Please note that I haven't tried these. To filter these prefs in bulk use sync*sch and/or sync*int in about:config.

comment Domain specific bookmarks for Firefox
Location bar search could be helpful?? To filter bookmarks, enter a * followed by a space and the bookmarked site/domain name. If the sites are also tagged in the bookmarks library (for example as Internal Site), then use + internal.
