comment windows ftp that auto connects ftp://user:password@domain urls?
Would FireFTP be useful?? After setting up the accounts in FireFTP, open Firefox Tools (Alt + T) > Add-ons > Extensions (on the left), and in FireFTP Options > Interface, enable Configure FTP links in Firefox to automatically use FireFTP.

@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.

It seems to be preliminarily reviewed. Please see Full Review, and Preliminary Review. Also see Not reviewed, i.e. Add-ons/Sites outside of AMO.

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.

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 How do I use the Device Font 10cpi font in Firefox?
In Firefox File (Alt + F) > Print, select the relevant printer in Name, and then Properties > Advanced. Some printers may provide an option to substitute the fonts with the Device Font. It may be buried in one of the drop down boxes but would be usually under the font options (if present) in Advanced. If the option is present, you can select that and then try to print.

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.

comment Firefox sessions (or similiar) as launchable files
sessionstore.js in the Firefox profile folder holds the windows/tabs info. This file can be copied/transported to reuse the sessions elsewhere. Profile files

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.
