I run an old Firefox on 5 PC's w/ a variety of Win OS'. This morning for 3rd time in 18 months Firefox updated w/o any input or permission from me. I will uninstall and re-install the version I prefer, along w/ AppGuard. If it ever updates again I will uninstall from all systems and get another browser. I don’t give a good G.D. how Mozilla feels about the latest version. That is to their taste, not mine. If I cared a whit about what any vendor thinks about their latest&greatest brainfart I’d buy AppleCrap, put my brain on idle, and rabbit on about how good that makes me feel.

Hello to everybody :o)

several websites, i.e. YouTube, Facebook and Google, detect the actual version of Firefox despite the fact I set a different version number (more recent) by means of the "User Agent Switcher" plugin.

So my question is twofold:

1) how can I change the "fingerprint" of my Firefox effectively, in order to make *any* website recognize the version number which I set (and not the real one)?

2) how those websites do detect the ACTUAL identity of a given browser, despite the changes to the User Agent string that one may have made by means of a switcher?

Thank you in advance to all you folks!

I noticed before I updated to Firefox 12, there used to be a Java console thing listed as an extension. After I updated Firefox, that extension stopped appearing. I've subsequently uninstalled Java 6 and installed Java 7. That extension is not there still.

Is this normal?

If it is relevant, I do not let Java save temporary internet files.

But guess what it will save and if I open a new window with that on open it will go to my set homepage. If i start without Fire Fox then it will go to the original. I've done everything I could think of. Please help.

First off, needing a number in my password for a forum is lame lame lame lame lame lame lame. Stop perpetuating the washing out of security; I am liable for my own security, thank you.


When I load pages through a link, especially from a Google Search and especially if those sites are a news site, the page will stay open for 30 seconds, then will automatically go back 1 page. If I click a few links, it will go back on page every 30 seconds until it reaches the first page.

It is exactly 30 seconds before the action happens. I have no plugins and am usign a default installation of Firefox 12

Hello everybody,


I have a Mac OS X Lion server which runs an OpenDirectory as master.


About 50 clients connect to this server, also with Mac OS X Lion installed on each client.


Each User has his Homedir on the server, and Firefox is installed on each client.


The problem is : if a client adds a bookmark in Firefox, when Firefox is restarted, the new bookmark is not there anymore.

Firefox can retreive its bookmarks when the client logs in with a local user on the client.


So, I thought it was a problem with rights on Homedir, but they are the same on the local user as on the Opendirectory user.


So I looked farther in fireFox sqlite databases, and I saw this after installing Sqlite Manager Firefox extension :


I opened Firefox and Sqlite Manager and saw that :

when a bookmark is added, moz_bookmarks table from places.sqlite database receives a new record ; but when Firefox is stopped, either modification are not committed, or table reverts in its preceeding state, because, when Firefox is restarted, the new bookmark is not there.

So, I retried to add a new bookmark, and from Sqlite Manager, i forced changes committing through 'commit;' command ; and yet, when I stopped and restarted Firefox, The new bookmark was here !

I have recently upgraded from version 3 to version 12 and used to be able to use Adobe SVG 6.0 by disabling the default viewer through About:Config. However after updating to Firefox 12 I am no longer able to disable the native SVG viewer (I have tried both svg.enabled + svg.smil.enabled).

Could you please advise how I can disable the built in SVG viewer to allow Adobe SVG to work? Failing that how can I revert back to Firefox 3.6 safely?

The error I get through the default viewer is:

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: <removed URL>
Line Number 1, Column 1:

I can confirm this worked through Adobe SVG 6.0 enabled.

Thank you very much in advance!

I cannot figure out how to get rid of this and have no idea how it got on my browser in the first place!
