Even now, when I registered to ask my question, as soon as I typed the first letter of my username auto complete gave me the options that have been used. I have accidentally typed a password right after a username before and now that also pops up as an option.

I have tried clearing cookies. I also tried clearing the cache, but never sure if it has worked The posts I read said to click the ok button after the clear now button. I don't have an ok button. How do I clear this and prevent it from happening again.

You keep popping up a message box saying that the page is probably using cross-scripting. This is complete baloney. It is a LEGITIMATE Citibank Online web site. I am able to access it through Internet Explorer. I was previously able to access it through Firefox. So what's going on now?? It's a real hassle having to run IE every time I want to go to this site, which is fairly often since I have an account with them!

Have been using Firefox for years. Then recently installed "net nanny" software and it changed the security settings of Firefox.

I cannot access secure https sites at all regardless of whether the net nanny software is even uninstalled.

The following alert occurs on executing Firefox ... "Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features."

Then when attempting to access a https site I get an error as follows: "Secure Connection Failed


An error occurred during a connection to support.mozilla.com.

Can't connect securely because the SSL protocol has been disabled.

(Error code: ssl_error_ssl_disabled)"

Use SSL 3.0 and Use TLS 1.0 are both selected in the "Advanced Settings"

I have also left a post on the Net nanny forum however clearly have not got a suitable answer when they talk about a setting in their software ("allow secure content") which is already activated anyway however with the software uninstalled it still didn't resolve the issue. I actually had to use IE to post to this forum.

It clearly provided a message when setting up Net nanny that it was changing the security settings when Firefox was executed for the first time for each user.

I would love to have a solution so I can get back to using Firefox as my default browser and do not believe a software application, and a well known one at that, should be making one browser non functional but not another.

A few weeks ago I installed updates and updated to Firefox 3.6.13 on OpenSuse 11.1 (yeah, I know, I should upgrade, but I'm lazy). No more Java functionality for me. So I installed a new version. I followed all of the instructions on this page (I've tried both from the RPM and the self-extracting file and get the same results either way): http://java.com/en/download/help/linux_install.xml but I got nothing. Next I tried this: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/manual-plugin-install-linux-136395.html The /firefox/plugins folder (which I should note I have installed in my home directory) shows the symbolic link. Still not registering in Firefox, at all. When I go to about:plugins, I'm not seeing anything about JRE.

At this point I'm at a loss. I'm ashamed to admit that as long as I've been using Linux, I still know very little about it as I only use the very basic functions on my machine (email, internet, office applications; no need for much other than that). But I've never run up against this problem before, and I'm not sure what I'm missing here about what I did wrong. I have this sneaking suspicion it's something simple, but...

thanks!

This does not happen with every Google search. When it does happen, it is always the first time I select a result no matter which result I select. Always when I go back one page and select the result again or another result I am directed to the correct website.

I only use Firefox so don't know what happens with other browsers IE Google Chrome or whatever.

I have several examples since December 2010 including two today 7th March 2011.

I exported a file of bookmarks from Firefox, installed on my Windows PC, and copied that file onto the desktop of my new MacBook Air. I want to import those bookmarks into Firefox on my Mac. Neither the Firefox help page nor Google referred me to an article that explained how to do this. (Google displayed one article on the subject, written in 2007, for an older version of Firefox than the one my Mac uses. The instructions referred to items that I could not find in the Firefox drop-down menus.) Because the Firefox help page offers articles explaining how to import bookmarks from other browsers to Firefox for the Mac, I looked at one of them to determine if I could perform similar steps to accomplish what I want. The article instructed me to click on "Bookmarks", then, in the resulting drop-down menu, "Organize Bookmarks". That action produced a "Library" window, as the instructions said it would. I was then supposed to click on "Import and Export", in that Library window. However, there was no such item there. So, I am dead in the water. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could show me how to import the bookmarks file into Firefox installed in my Mac. Thank you.

KeyScrambler from QFX Software is an app/extension that aims to defeat keylogger spyware by feeding gibberish to the keylogger. I installed the free version, 3 or four mos. ago on my XP Pro x86 SP3 system, found it in Get Add-ons I think; it works to encrypt keyboard output at low level, then decrypt when strokes reach the app (i.e., Firefox or M$ IE 8.0 browsers). Is not found in Add-ons Search now. Does this absence indicate Mozilla found a problem with later update version?

QFX Software the vendor. ($$cost "Pro" version works for docs in Word, etc. I'm on layoff over a year and need cheap.) Updated v2.6 seems to be working well - but new update available and is not found in Add-ons searches recent weeks. Does this make KeyScrambler a bad ext? Or, am I mistaken about Add-ons having it in past?

Is there any way to edit the standard Firefox context menu for displayed Web pages? I frequently want to save a picture appearing on a page. Sometimes I "slip" and hit "Send Image" when I want "Save Image As", and have to sit and wait for a default send-mail page to come up, then close it, fiddling with its "are you sure" dialogs. This is a painful way to handle a slip-up. I basically NEVER want to e-mail an element directly from a page. Is there any way I can just delete "Send Image" from the context menu?
