How to change program used to open mailto links in windows 8

I'd like to use Firefox to open Mailto links in Windows 8. I found this support article, but it isn't relevant to Windows 8: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-program-used-open-email-links?esab=a&as=aaq

When I open Control Panel --> Default Programs, and try to associate Mailto with Firefox, the only options it gives me are "Mail" (the Metro app I'm trying to ditch) and "Look for an app in the Store". No Firefox. How do I get Firefox to appear in the list of apps that can be associated with Mailto? Thanks very much for any help.

Mail Redirect, a TB addon, recently switched to Sourceforge because MozDev was shutting down or something. However, attempting to download the latest XPI from Sourceforge (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/mailredirect/mailredirect-0.7.7-sm%2Btb.xpi?r=http%3A%2F%2Fsourceforge.net%2Fprojects%2Fmailredirect%2F%3Fsource%3Ddirectory&ts=1370301869&use_mirror=iweb) fails, because Firefox assumes the download is supposed to be an install of a Firefox addon, and Mail Redirect's metadata is set to be incompatible with Firefox.

There is no way to override this and force an actual download; clicking "Direct Link" on the page does the same thing, and dragging either of the links to the Downloads window (Ctrl-J) downloads an HTML document with a .XPI extension, which is obviously useless. What's more, Thunderbird has no convenient way of opening arbitrary webpages.

I finally caved and used IE to download it. It took about 30 seconds.

A brand new iMac with the current OS X 10.8.2 has no Applications folder in the dock. When I try to download Firefox the last step instructs to drag the Firefox icon into the Applications folder. What do I do since there is no such folder?

FYI, an older MacBook Pro I had does have an Applications folder in the dock so there was no problem downloading and installing Firefox.

I have just bought a Dell computer with a 27 inch screen. I can increase the size of the print in windows, but that seems to have no effect in Firefox.

All I can find in your "how to" pages is how to use programs, etc. Nothing about DISPLAY.

How can I make the TEXT bigger so that I can see it on this big screen?

Thank you very much

So our System admin forces upon us a really slow internal website as our Home page. Fortunately it is not that big of a problem in Firefox (as it's in IE, but who uses that?) since I've set the browser to start all last opened tabs and windows on a Firefox restart, but as soon as we start a new window, that page opens up and I hate that. Any way I can override these system forced settings? Whenever I change that back to about:blank or Firefox Start page, probably on next system restart or whenever the group policies are enforced again it's changed back to that slow website.

Since Firefox is open and highly customizable, I was thinking there might be a way to do that (I won't mind an add-on to do that). Thanks!

I have used Firefox for several years, it is a wonderful product and I love it. Now all of a sudden after I have installed a few things I now get a default homepage of a proxy server search engine, (/proxy.allsearchapp.com/app/start/) I have attempted to re do the normal option/and adjust the homepage option so many times. I also have chose NO PROXY server option. I went to the about.config and changes the keyword.url to no avail. I even went into my cookies and deleted the proxy allsearch and still nothing. I have worked on this problem for days. I even uninstalled my firefox, restarted my computer so many times and restarted it and re installed from a fresh copy and wala.... it is still there terrorizing me. I do not get this with my internet explore but I do not want to use that! I much prefer my Firefox. I have googled this problem and done most everything it has said but now I just do not know what else to try. Does anyone have my answer please?

When I download a file, Firefox does 2 things: changes the file name to gobbledy-gook of letters and numbers, AND, adds a .part extension -- therefore the files won't open. This is a NEW problem. If I manually remove the .part extension in the download folder, the file will open, but I still have the problem of the name change. I believe that the .part extension is supposed to go away when the download is finished, but that does not happen. Also, my downloads always used to come with their original name, not a numbers/letters name. Thoughts?

Hello, since today, before opening a pdf document, I reach a dark page where I have to click to activate the Adobe Acrobat plugin. I have Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 10.1.5 and I knew it was outdated because I check regularly the "check plugins" page, it used to be simply paired with the yellow button and that was all. Today I get black screens whenever I try to view pdf in Firefox and I have to click on them to view pdf. From the Add-ons/Plugins control panel I know see a warning red writing above the plugin entry stating "Adobe Acrobat is known to be vulnerable and should be updated". I cannot seem to update because I have Adobe Acrobat X pro, and I don't want to install the reader or purchase the newest version of the pro suite. My Pc runs with WIndows XP SP3 and is quite old, all other plugins are up to date, including Java and I don't want to use the new FF built-in pdf reader.

Any suggestion as how to disable the warnings and vulnerability screens or to update the plugin without installing Adobe Reader? Thank you

My Foscam FI8910W, opens after sign in, with three modes to choose from. Only the ActiveX mode, in IE, works to allow recordings to be made. Sometime back, just after I bought this new laptop, a free AT&T program with McAfee, is available for AT&T users. But this app, can only be loaded into Internet Explorer, and something wrong with IE, prevented it from happening. I contacted AT&T Tech support, allowed the tech onto my machine, and even he could not solve it. He then opened Firefox I already had, and installed some program, that made Firefox actually act like IE, so that McAfee software, could be downloaded and installed. It worked, using Firefox to replace IE, to download and install, but the print spooler on my pc, went bad, and would not work to use my printer. Dell tech also took control of the pc, found a complete Windows 7 reinstall was needed, and he did so. Now, the print spooler works, but the fresh install, did away with the software the AT&T Tech added to Firefox.

IE is a pain, but we need it, for some sites, like for the Activex mode, with my camera. I tried pening it in Firefox, in the ActiveX mode, and it opens, but with no picture. When I click on Device Management, to go to settings, I can't. What I get, is a small pop up balloon on lower right, that says 'javascript:administrator0'. Thinking maybe Javascript was disabled, I checked in options, and it is not, it's checked, thus enabled. I am on my pc, as administrator, so now I am stuck. Is there someone who can explain how to make it work, so I can use my camera in ActiveX mode, so I can actually record tings, if need be, when I leave? Thanks in advance. Oh, My Win 7, has the 64 bit OS, not the 32 if that helps.

Every time I open firefox, "plugin check" opens. Even after I installed and updated all plugins, the plugin-check appears whenever firefox opens. After updating all the plugins I restarted my pc, reset the browser and checked to make sure that my home page has not been changed the firefox plugin change, disabled all my plugins and even tried blocking the website via HOSTS.

I am fully capable of checking to see if my browser and plugins are up-to-date and I don't appreciate the unnecessary waste of time with this plugin-check running every single time the browser opens. Similar to updates, this should be an OPTIONAL check not FORCED and there should be a simple way to disable it without having the browser open an extra blank tab or requiring the user to edit the about:config to work around it.

Hi,

I'm wondering how to keep cookies from certain website when Firefox closes, for example I'm spending some time on www.kongregate.com it's a website with flash games and as you may suspect I'd like to keep my progress from those games for future visits, however whenever I close Firefox it automatically deletes files from "C:\Users\<me>\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\########\assets.kongregate.com\", that file has saves from games from kongregate and I want to keep that, anyway I'll post a list of my Privacy settings to help you help me achieve what I'm writing here about also "ON" means that box has check mark and "OFF" that it doesn't:


Tracking:

-Tell websites I do not want to be tracked - ON


History:

-Firefox will: Use custom settings for history

-Always use private browsing mode - OFF

-Remember my browsing and download history - OFF

-Remember search and form history - OFF

-Accept cookies from sites - ON (I've added www.kongregate.com as well as *www.kongregate.com* to exception list with "Allow" option)

-Accept third-party cookies - ON

-Keep until: I close Firefox

-Clear history when Firefox closes - ON


Location Bar:

-When using the location bar, suggest: Nothing


Options for "Clear history when Firefox closes

When I quit Firefox, it should automatically clear all:

History:

-Browsing History - ON

-Download History - ON

-Form & Search History - ON

-Cookies - ON (Corrected typo)

-Active Logins - OFF

-Cache - ON


Data:

-Saved Passwords - OFF

-Site Preferences - OFF

-DownThemAll! History & Queue - OFF (Not that this one matters)

-Offline Website Data - OFF


These are my current settings which I believe should allow me to keep cookies from kongregate while other cookies are being deleted, but if that is not the case please tell me which options should be set at what to allow me keep cookies from kongregate, if it is not possible to have that then please suggest me some extensions that would allow me to keep cookies from kongregate while deleting others.

Thanks in advance!
