How do I disable HTTPS redirect. I am "aware of the risks" blah blah paranoid blah. And well aware of what I'm doing. But for some reason with 32 no everything heads over to https including non-https bookmarks.

No matter how I type it in; HTTP://www.xxxx www.xxxxx

I would like to find some way, by setting, about:config command (or hack if I have to) or even an extension someone could point me to that could stop this maddening overuse of secure transfers.

I had to replace my motherboard and install a new operating system on a new hard drive. Windows 7.

The old hard drive has windows 7 OEM and would not boot with the new MB.

I need to recover the bookmarks from the old HD which is connected to the new MB.

I can access the folders. I just can't find the bookmarks. 

I need them to be complete because I used hints in the bookmarks to be able to sign in to some sights that I can't remember.

Help Please!

When I try to scroll down using the middle mouse button, it goes so slowly that I can't stand it, so I use the scroll bar to the right. This is annoying to me. When I reset the mouse button on my windows to more lines, it makes it scroll too fast for my docs, but does not affect the scrolling in FireFox. I've looked for tools and options for this, and can't find anything to do about it.

When I try to access me Barclays Online Banking webpage I receive this error message : The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

If I clear my history I can then access the Barclays login page and re-enter my details but as soon as I log out I receive the error message once again when I go back. I have no problem whatsoever using this website with Internet Explorer.

Please help !!

I want to create a link to a Google (spread)sheet that I can have on my toolbar. I access this spreadsheet frequently and just want to link to the page. When I right click on the page, nothing happens. I know I've done it before, although I'm not sure how. I have a workaround but it's tedious and this is something that isn't unusual for me as the common spreadsheet I use changes.

Any ideas?

I think the question is self explanatory. But, When I installed Mcafee Total Protection a long while ago, I think it put a secure search thing into my search engine list, and when I remove it, the option to "Restore Defaults" becomes clickable and if I click it, Mcafee's Secure Search is brought back??? How can I fix this? Please help it's pretty annoying, as I don't like Mcafee.

P.S. "Resetting Firefox" didn't work.

Here is a screenshot of the issue: http://gyazo.com/441b6a4b24bdd156ca0229fe28451cb6

Hi. I just started using Firefox and I am really impressed. I like it.

I noticed that when posting a message on Facebook, there is a spell check that runs and highlights words that it thinks are misspelled. I did not see this using IE9. Is there any way to turn this 'spell checking ' off?

Thank you,

I have used Firefox since it was introduced and have had it remember my passwords for as long as that's been possible. Suddenly, last week, after the 32.0 upgrade, all of my passwords completely disappeared. I have the Privacy settings set to "Firefox will Remember History". Why would they have disappeared, and how can I retrieve them? Is there anything nefarious I should be worried about (could they have been stolen)?

I am running Windows 8.0 on a 64-bit computer with 4GB RAM/1TB HDD. Today, I upgraded to 32.0.1, but the passwords are still missing. I have Sync enabled.

I have the current Firefox version installed. Am using Win 7 Home Premium. This issue started several months ago after a Firefox update. Every time I open a "New Tab", I get this message on the screen, surrounded by a red box:

XML Parsing Error: undefined entity Location: about:newtab Line Number 139, Column 47: <button class="launchButton" id="settings">&abouthome.settingsButton.label;</button>


^

Haven't the vaguest idea what it means or how to get rid of it. Am going back to another support page that tells how to get pinned windows restored that used to show up every time I opened a new tab. Perhaps that will help? We shall see - wish me luck! Thanks to all the Volunteers on this site in advance if anyone has the cure that ails me!

Oh, and before posting this, I did install the Add-On called "Troubleshooter" Regards, Deb and Dakota
