Firefox "knows" about a number of plugins. By what means can a plugin become known to Firefox and have automated updating?

I could understand (not like) the fact that Microsoft might not be eager to make their products any easier to use with Firefox. But, I would think that Google and Real Networks would.

Whenever I click on a mailto: link, either nothing happens or, in some instances, a new blank tab will appear. I have Outlook set as my email client, and the program is running. Other browsers, IE and Chrome, link out to Outlook just fine, only Firefox (3.6.11) has this problem.

How do I change the background color (in the userchrome) of the bookmark folder menus? I'm not talking about the bookmark sidebar background color, I'm talking about when you have a folder in your bookmark bar and click on it, the drop down background color.

I don't want to have to change themes, I know there is a way to "hack" or over ride the current color without having to change the theme. Also, changing my computer settings don't do crap, it has nothing to do with the colors of my browser.

Thanks for your help in advance.

After the update, when I start typing into the location bar, no prior urls pop up - I have to input all over again each time. This applies not only to locations from before the update, but to urls I have input since then - the location bar autocomplete doesn't seem to be functioning at all. If there's a simple way to turn it back on, I haven't found it. NOTE: Under the "Privacy" tab in Preferences, I have selected: "When using the location bar, suggest: History and Bookmarks."

Every time I open Firefox I get an AVG warning about tracking cookies in Sqlite. I can't clean these cookies. AVG deny that there is a problem with AVG, so how can I fix this? I'm fed up of it and on the verge of going back to IE just so that I can open my browser without a stupid banner coming up.

I am running Firefox 3.6 just upgraded today. I am running on a PC with Windows Vista. I also use Yahoo as my homepage. When I do a search Yahoo (also tried Google with same result) I get my usual list of suggested websites for my search, BUT when I click on a legitimate link such as www.molottery.com sometimes I will be redirected to an ad site. I say sometimes ( I mean roughly every other search.) Now if on the first try I get the MO Lottery website and I hit the back button then change the search to Missouri Conservation and click the link I know belongs to them I may or may not get that page. I did catch something about nhost? redirecting me? Often I can not use the back button once directed to these ad sites. It just brings me right back to the ad. I do not get the same results if I click on a bookmark or type the address directly into the address bar. Is this some kind of advertising done by Firefox? I have tried and this is not happening in my IE8. If this is a Firefox thing I will not use it.

Hi I've recently come across this problem of Google images only showing the first page of images with the rest being blank grey boxes. After trawling the web for days it seems this has been an ongoing problem for many for several months now but I haven't seen any solutions that have worked for me. I've cleared the cache and temp files, I've un-checked 'disable or replace context menus' on firefox etc. It seems to run ok on ie8 but I prefer to use Firefox if at all possible. Is there a solution out there?

I am on XP Pro sp3 using FF 3.6.11

When I'm on a page with multiple links (ie. Google Search, Craig's List, etc), and I click on a link, then return to the search page, Firefox doesn't show the visited links in purple. As a result I can't see which links I've visited, which makes browsing very difficult on some sites. I've updated my Color Settings to show visited links in purple, but it's not applying. What might be causing this?

Windows 7 32bit Firefox 3.6.1.1 .... I really liked Firefox until recently!!!!

I'm not even going to explain all the problems I have had in the last 2 days, but i will tell you i have read so many forums and have done A LOT of fixing, 8 hours worth!! So before someone suggests for me to try a common fix I have done almost all things like.
Disable extensions
Disabled/Remove add ons
Tried all in safe mode
Deleted files in Firefox Profile
Renamed files in Firefox Profile
I have done almost everything except remove Firefox and use a different browser.
What gets me most is this site (Mozilla support) is the least helpful!! i have found solutions that worked off of Non Mozilla forums!!
Ok here goes......
1. Auto complete works in location/address bar, when I click ENTER on keyboard or click the blue arrow in address bar NOTHING HAPPENS!!! I can go to bookmarks click on one and it will go right to the page! It's like the address bar is dead!
2. I have NO search engines in the search bar located right next to address bar, the only solution I found for that called for typing commands in the address bar, which i can do but it wont do anything!!!
Please keep in mind I did a full Google search on these problems and have found that a lot of people have the same issues regardless of Firefox versions or Operating systems!!
This is my last attempt to get accurate and proven solutions/fixes to these problems before I wash my hands of Mozilla, I'm sure someone will tell me to just do it!!!
I am hoping to get knowledgeable responses to this post!!

                      THANKS,
                                               Robert


I just found out this:     Posted November 3, 2010 8:12:18 PM PDT: 
When I go to Firefox profiles folder i have 3 different profiles all with default at the end!!! Which one do i rename and wgich do I delete? See issues just keep getting stickier a more complicated!!! 
                              Thanks,

Firefox has given the options for the user to control how certain javascript functions can be used. I came across a horrible use of window.onbeforeunload() which keeps firefox from closing a tab, and therefore also quiting. A manual kill is required to close a page with the following code: (just open in firefox to test)

<title>test</title><script type="text/javascript">window.onbeforeunload=function(){return 'PRESS ESCAPE OR CLOSE THIS ALERT\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n';}</script>

It would be great if I could disable this javascript code, just like I can with window move/resize, raise/lower, hide statusbar, etc..
