My understanding of how web pages work is that the web page name (URL) is translated to an IP address. So, can I find out what that address is for a web page which I have open? The reason for my interest is that when I type www.streamhunter.eu my Firefox browser comes back with Batmanstream.com or something like that. I want to know if this is the real streamhunter or a pirated web page. So, what IP address is Batmanstream using? I don't know. Oh, I am using Ubuntu 15.10 and Firefox 43.04.

I am using the current version of Firefox and when using a particular website (Microsoft CRM Online) I get frequent popup dialogs . The issue I have is Firefox will ask me (in a dialog) if I want to "prevent this website from creating additional dialogs". I understand the reasoning behind this, but I don't want it. I would prefer that the dialogs behave in the same way they do in other browsers.

Can I disable this feature either at the browser

Every once in a while an add from Facebook will open up with a fake "You computer is infected call #" page. This hasn't been a problem in the past because I use ad-blocker, flash blocker, and no script. But these pages that I have seen lately ask for authentication ex. "A username and password are being requested by http://errorx3458i.ml.".

How can I disable Firefox from making a popup asking for authentication?

These popups stop the page from being closed because they pop back up. They also prevent going to another tab. I can open up a new Firefox instance and use that. The only way to close this is be very very quick and hit the X on the page just after the one on the popup or use task manager and force close Firefox.

Or more specifically, when I start up a new session, I'm always brought to the "enter your password to continue" screen (Screenshot attached in case you're not sure what page I mean)

Now Firefox remembers my password so it's not exactly hard to just click "Sign In" but it's more a convenience thing, and bewilderment that my FF install on another of my PC's isn't having the same issue. I thought it may be an issue with the GMail notifier I was using (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/fastest-notifier-for-gmail/) so I disabled that and restarted FF. No success.

I've attempted to clear my cookies for google three times, one just deleting the google.com cookies, second deleting them all internally via FF and the last time removing cookies.sqlite file in case that was corrupt or similar. However all three of these attempts after signing in to Google and restarting Firefox bring me back to the login screen on my next browsing session.

This is exclusive to Google however, other websites I use only log me out when the relevant cookie expires so I'm not sure what Google's cookies are doing differently to other sites to cause this.

Hopefully one of you guys has a good idea of what's going on and are not as stumped as I am!

Hi, I have been searching through the internet for a resolution, but each mention of an add-on or such for firefox leads to no-longer working pages it seems.

When I visit a website that has,for example, a list of 12 tips on a subject, (like 12 ways to annoy your cat ;)), it might show he first one, then i am supposed to click the forward arrow to see the next tip. However, i often find that it will not advance, unless i first refresh the page, then re-click the arrow, every single timei want to advance!

Is there a fix for this, or a good, updated add-on to auto-refresh?

Thanks for any help!

I know where the Firefox map is (C:\Users\MyName\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\e8sn4xgq.default) - here I find a map Bookmarkbackups but I cannot find the actual Bookmarks. My problem is that I have all my data on a seperate partition. I now and then make images of my C partition and sometimes need to return to an earlier image. I just now discovered that I loose all Firefox Bookmark changes when I do that.

I also know how to export the bookmarks to an html file an my D partition. But I need to remember doing that regularly.

With Internet Explorer it is possible to change the location of the bookmarks. Whenever I return to an earlier image of my C partition my Favourites stay unchanged on D Couldn't this be done with Firefox?

I am developing a web application (Wildfly, JS, html, css & co.). I am checking that in both Chrome and Firefox, but in Firefox every time i want to refresh a page to see changes, i must clean the cache, while in Chrome i just press F5. I installed Firefox Developer Edition because of that, but the problem is also there.

Even Ctrl+Shift+R doesn't solve the problem (or not always).

I added: https://addons.mozilla.org/it/firefox/addon/empty-cache-button/ and it works great. But still, why doesn't work just F5 as it happens in Chrome? Is there an option "automatically clean cache"? Or some "Developement mode" that allows to refresh everything silently?

The biggest disappointment was when i saw that this happens also in "Firefox Developer Edition" Maybe i am doing something wrong or the option is present?

I remember some problems like that in the past, but now they happens almost on always change.

For this web site: http://ulsterhabitat.org/ in the post Ulster Habitat News (facebook) (third image, first small one), the link to the facebook page will only open if: I right click on it and choose "open in new tab" (It does not matter if I give focus to the new tab or not), then I left click on the link and it works. If I left click on the link first, nothing happens. (link says "Ulster Habitat Facebook").

What I have done: run in safe mode, refreshed Firefox, reinstalled Firefox 43.0.3 (with all profile data removed - as clean as could be) with no extensions, altered settings or add-ons. Behavior is always the same.

System is Windows 7 Pro, latest up-to-date version, but Firefox also does this on a W7 Home system, and a W10 Home system, both with latest Firefox. No Firefox extensions or add-ons on the W10 machine.

Bonus: Chrome 47.0.2526.106 does not do this (it opens the link immediately). IE 11.0.26 does just what Firefox does. It would seem to me that the link should either work or not work, but not depend on opening in a new tab first. Fascinated by this. Thank you. Tim

I have an embedded mp4 video background on my site. It functions properly in every browser other than Firefox.

It's not content on a page, so I can't put multiple versions in and have the browser pick.

I also can not use YouTube video as a background video -- nor am I willing to use Flash [since this requires plug-ins to work, and most people are afraid of having Flash on their systems].

Is there any solution, or will this just not work for anyone using Firefox?

Thanks.
