I want to be able to have Firefox open up the .vcs files I get in Outlook, like IE does. It looks like I could use the Tools -> Options, Application Panel, but I need to add that mime type. I have read that changing the mimetypes on the server may work, but I have numerous servers at work that send these files. I can see to change the file, but I need text/x-vCalendar and not text/calendar type.

how do I stop firefox redirecting to http://www.mybrowserbar.com/cgi/errors.cgi when a url is wrong? I'd like to keep the wrong one - it was probably just a spelling mistake. 3.6.10

Whenever I type in a url that is wrong, I get the page that says "Not Found" for less than a second, then it switches to an "Oops! This page appears broken. HTTP 404 - File not found." page from http://www.mybrowserbar.com/cgi. This is extremely irritating. I WANT the URL that I typed, so that I can edit it and not have to type it in again.

This happens every time I type a wrong URL.

So : how do I stop this?

It might have something to do with a change I made yesterday. I followed some instructions that said to go to TOOLS and click Clear Cache . Now there isn't a bar on top of my screen anymore to go back and click "tools" (or anything else). I went to Control Panel and did a "restore to earlier point" (restoring computer to an earlier date) but it did no good. What can I do to get things back?

Firefox doesn't shut down cleanly. It never has. It often only does a "top kill" which leaves the bottom running. It won't start again until you kill the entire process. I have to open Task Manager, hunt around for the remnant of the application ("firefox.exe"), and kill it.

How can I get FF to shut down cleanly?
