1. If I am connected to a website and would like to find the resolved IP address, how do I do that?

I know that I can use commands such as tracert in a terminal window, but I would prefer to find the IP address Firefox just used to get to the webpage.

2. Shouldn't this info be provided using the View Page Info selection? What is the philosophy behind not providing this information?

Thank you.

If there isn't a way, it seems an obvious enhancement.

Lately, the proxy authentication dialog keeps popping up every now and then. This is incredibly annoying: even though my credentials are remembered, I still have to click OK, sometimes a few times before I can proceed viewing the website. Sometime the dialog from a website on a different (background) tab pops up and disturbs me while viewing another website.

My setup is as follows: Currently, I'm using Firefox 31.0 on openSUSE 13.1 I have a cntlm proxy set up and set as my system's proxy (http_proxy and KDE's proxy settings) at http://localhost:3128 which works correctly in other applications. I tried using two settings in FF: 'Use system proxy settings' and 'Manual proxy configuration'. I tried both, checking and unchecking 'Do not prompt for authentication if password is saved' I tried a suggestion from the web, setting signon.autologin.proxy to true. I tried some proxy addon which promised to solve the issue.

None of these worked in preventing that incredibly annoying proxy authentication dialog from poppin g up (although, at times it *seemed* that I didn't get if for a longer time (that was after making the about:config modification mentioned above)).

I remember times on this machine when that did not happen, but I can't remember what I've changed that it's broken now (probably it was some FF update?).

Please, help me! I'm lost and it makes my FF very uncomfortable to use. I need some suggestions on how to configure FF in a way that *should* work, i.e. which combinations of the settings I mentioned above, or other ones I haven't considered yet.

Out of the blue, my back button (and backspace button on keyboard) stopped working on some sites (TV Guide, Washington Post) but not others (Yahoo, Wikipedia) ... When I hit the button, the tab for the page "blinks" but it doesn't revert to the previous page. If I hold down the back button until the list of previous pages appears, I can click on the previous page and it will return ...

I've tried closing Firefox and rebooting without success ... Any ideas?

Howdy,

I run a Private Certificate Authority for my personal use and just to learn about SSL Certs. However, with the current build of FireFox I'm on ( 31 ) I can no longer visit sites I've secured with SSL Certs signed by this certificate authority, even though these SSL certs work just perfectly fine in Chrome and Internet Explorer. I keep getting a "sec_error_inadequate_cert_type" error. I can only assume that the certs I've been issuing are incorrect in some way, but the error is so vague and the error page doesn't specify more.

I only discovered this when I realized some of my SSL certs had expired, and I went to re-issue them.

One of the certs that hasn't expired yet but is experiencing problems can be found here:

One of the Certs I've tried re-issuing, matching fields included as closely as I can to a Google SSL cert that I looked up is here:

These certificates were generated using the application called SimpleAuthority, found here: http://simpleauthority.com/

A Site like Networking4All.com seems to believe the Certs are valid, excepting the CA that is Self Signed: http://www.networking4all.com/en/support/tools/site+check/report/?fqdn=phpmyadmin.endofevolution.com&protocol=https

Interestingly enough, using a different site like SSLShopper shows an error similar to FF31: http://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=https://phpmyadmin.endofevolution.com

The certs are running on an Apache Web server: Apache/2.2.21 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.2.21 OpenSSL/1.0.0e PHP/5.3.10

The CA Cert is in FireFox's store as trusted.

If needed, I can provide certs.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox (31.0) on Windows 8.1 Pro. I wanted to imitate OS X way of scrolling in the browser window called "natural" scrolling. I edited the registry setting for my logitech mouse and the scrolling works perfectly the way I wanted in every single window on my system with only one exception, Firefox browser. Somehow Firefox is set to use old way of scrolling and doesn't respect the windows registry settings, like every other window. Is there a way to change or reverse scrolling direction?

thank you Roman

WIN XP. Have checked file association settings and pdf files are directed towards using Adobe reader. Completed uninstall of FFox31 and icons changed back to Adobe. Cleaned computer and carried out clean install. Icons remained as pdf for two restarts and then changed back to FFox icons. Everything works normally but the icons remain as FFox. Have set FFox application options to 'always ask' temporarily. I have a second WinXP machine that has upgraded to FFox 31 without this problem. Strange!
