Why does Craigslist.org automatically redirect me to montreal.craigslist.ca even after I've disabled location tracking & cookies for all Craigslist pages?

My ISP is located in Montreal, but I am not. Since switching to my ISP in Montreal, every time I go to Craigslist, or Facebook, or any of a number of websites, the websi… (read more)

My ISP is located in Montreal, but I am not. Since switching to my ISP in Montreal, every time I go to Craigslist, or Facebook, or any of a number of websites, the website assumes I am in Montreal and feeds me Montreal-specific content. I couldn't figure out how to change this. Then I realized that I must have Location Tracking turned on. So I tried to change this for Craigslist specifically. First I disabled Location Tracking (In the URL bar, typed about:config, Typed geo.enabled, Double clicked on the geo.enabled preference: changed from "default" to "user set." Then I went to "page info" for montreal.craigslist.ca and blocked Access Your Location and removed all cookies. Then I did the same for craigslist.org and craigslist.org/about/sites. Yet when I type in craigslist.org, it STILL automatically re-directs to montreal.craigslist.ca. How is this happening if Firefox and Craigslist aren't tracking my location and Craigslist isn't storing cookies on my computer??

I'm trying to set up a proxy so that I can connect remotely to my office. If I select a manual proxy, does it over-write my default proxy? My IT department said to "add" a proxy, but I don't see how to add one, just how to change the current one.

The superimposition of the navigation buttons and window buttons (circled in red on my screenshot) happened a few updates ago, but the duplication of the add/recycle tab buttons (purple), with the associated wide stretch of useless gray header, just happened with the last update (or the one just before that). I'm already on a laptop, so I can't afford to lose too much more window real estate! Any suggestions on how I could get some sanity back? (The first problem causes problems all the time when I resize my window rather than navigating back a page -- not fun!)

Thanks for any tips, acm

Our web host suggested we move all INBOX emails to offline folders to not exceed our 5GB space on their server. Within Thunderbird we did this on two computers. We quit the program, restarted the computers. Only one of computers can send/receive. The other can only send. Web host support is online only - 24 hour wait. Any ideas for what else to try?

I have an iMac where all my booksmarks are and I am trying to sync to my new Macbook Pro Retina that I recently purchased. I followed Firefox directions on how to sync my device. First I went to my laptop: tools > set up sync. Then I went to my iMac, went to the firefox homepage > sync > pair a device > entered the code from my macbook pro. Then nothing. The directions say that it will say "device connected" and will automatically start syncing, but I don't see anything. Finding the recovery key option does not work either. When I go to preferences > sync, I don't even have the option for managing my recovery key. Help?

I've been having all sort of problems with our Mac Mini, running 10.8.5 and using Firefox as our browser. I think I've traced it down to an extension called BYD, which keeps reinstalling on startup even if I remove it from Firefox. I know that this is part of the spammy Best YouTube Downloader app but I can't figure out how to REALLY uninstall it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
