For example, if I want to sign into gmail, it asks for the username. As soon as I type in the first letter, it gives me a selection which it stored. Once I made a mistake and typed my password in there which also begins with the same letter. How do I clear the list? Actually, how can I set Firefox so that it doesn't automatically store that information.

I marked coupons on Target.com.Was told I must download Coupon Activator. I downloaded it but can't install it. What am I missing? I already had a coupon printer installed but it seems Target wants this one.

I just was forced to upgrade (darn) and my home page (Comcast.net) will not take depite following the easy instructions on "make my homepage". The Comcast site just "flickers" in the browser. All other bookmarks/favorites are fine, I now have to go to IE to access Comcast.net (home page for me). Can I "un-install" the upgrade that I was forced to download?

The download starts with Firefox Setup 6.0.2.exe, but I always have trouble with "setup" programs that appear to be manageable size (this one estimates 45 minutes to download), but once run, starts a ten-hour download.

This should be easily available information on the website... what is the total download size if the current Firefox installation package?

ieSnare is a "protection system" used by certain websites (often gambling) which installs a *.sol file (flash cookie) into a file system, supposedly indicating a fraudulent machine. This may then be read by other sites using ieSnare, who often just shut down Firefox when encountering it. It's possible to find and delete *.sol files, but they are quickly reinstalled when an ieSnare site is entered. BTW - I'm not a fraudulent operator...

I was on Facebook, trying to delete a picture from my favorite sport teams. I right clicked and chose "block all photos from static.ak.f....." When I did that, I couldnt see any thumbnail size pictures on FB. How do I unblock the site?

It seems that I have blocked pictures from http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/rsrc.php/v1/yL/r/wErnZ_tAQMR.png. This is a Facebook question, but I searched their site and cannot find it. When I tried to repeat the action that blocked pictures, a pop up came up and said Firefox will now block pictures from http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/rsrc.php/v1/yL/r/wErnZ_tAQMR.png. I want to know how to undo this, I cannot see any profile pictures of myself or anyone else on FB. Thanks for your help! natalietallon@hotmail.com
