Unable to clear cached information on Firefox 40

I am using version 40.0 with SHA512: 84228c5e70b0ca4b3a8444007691a06cac1ecb6d81995d11a225e6e29dac6799267ebfe60488d0934e32567599c6a4ef0f849dfddbbfd3abdf0b0282599f10c3 If y… (read more)

I believe this is a hack designed to prevent clearing of cached information. It may be related to a process called "imagaent" which is related to a facetime application which i don't use. Does anyone have a explanation as to why the AOL email was maintained ?

Why do I get redirected to a Yahoo DNS error page every time an ad fails to load in a website?

DNS Solution Yahoo Error Handler https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/errorhandler?hspart=gt&hsimp=yhse-gt&q=(URL of the page I wanted) Search query We did not find results for because SafeSearch is active and your query contains some restricted word(s). Try the suggestions below or type a new query above. To search for , change your SafeSearch preferences.

This just recently started popping up when I load some news sites. It seems to load the article, and then an ad comes in and causes the page to redirect to this error handler. Yahoo is not even my default search. I can usually hit the back button and get the site I wanted, but it's extremely annoying and I don't know what causes it.

The search bar in the "Awesome bar" has recently stopped offering search suggestions, either from my search history or from Google itself. When I control-click in the search bar, "search suggestions" has a check next to it, and it is also ticked in the Preferences.

I've re-set network.http.speculative-parallel-limit to 0 and then set it to 6 and 10, with no difference. Re-starting the browser makes no difference.

browser.search.suggest.enabled = true browser.urlbar.suggest.bookmark = true browser.urlbar.suggest.history = true browser.urlbar.suggest.history.onlyTyped = false browser.urlbar.suggest.openpage = true browser.urlbar.suggest.searches = false

I've been having problems with Javascript seeming to just quit working after the browser has been running for a while over the last several updates, which affects things like comment loading on some sites, Java-based menus not working, etc. but I don't know if that would be related to this problem. A re-start didn't solve things in this case, not today anyway.

This question was asked .. And SOLVED for the person asking it .. but, not in a way that was understandable to me. So, I'm just asking for some details which could be followed as a tutorial.

This was the final comment from rjf380 on 9/19/17:

"So, between these posts, and a visit to Apple's Genius Bar, I found a solution. (1) Access the Firefox profile folder as described above and click to have it open in Finder. (2) Close Firefox application. (3) While having the Firefox profile folder open in Finder, open Time Machine from the menu bar at the top of the Mac screen. (4) The Finder folder will then be displayed for all previous updates. Select the most recent update (or the update that would contain your browsing history), select the profile folder, and then click restore. (5) Exit Time Machine.

My Firefox browsing history is fully restored."

This is good to know .. there is hope, for I have the same problem.. I had to delete Firefox after using it from the beginning .. For some reason the selection of my preferred search engine (Google) always came up with "Yahoo" .. no matter how I configured preferences .. I assumed there was a Yahoo virus in the system.. :-) .. so, I deleted Firefox .. then realized I had 20 years of bookmarks I really didn't want to delete. I've donated to Firefox several times and my wife has a $5/month auto donation that's still active... So, I'm determined to restore it .. with a working Google search engine and prior Bookmarks & History.

From rjf380's pionts for solution:

1) Which Firefox "Profile folder" ? ... places.sqlite or about:profiles  ?? (I don't see how to make a word in BOLD text)

Also .. nothing was said about Bookmarks .. or the bookmarks bar ...

Thanks much for more specifics.. Regards, michael

Gibberish appearing in AOL & Yahoo email, not in gmail. Started after FFox 60 update. Does not appear in other browsers. Did not appear in FFox before 60. Have not updated or otherwise changed any hardware or software recently before or after FFox automatically updated itself couple days ago. Images are attached. Couple years back this was happening in Safari and Chrome but not FFox. That is why I switched to FFox. Since later upgrades, Safari & Chrome no longer display gibberish. All forums I went to had no answers not even tech support. So I stayed with FFox. Don't care to go back. Has always performed smoothly. But if this new glitch isn't fixed very shortly, I'll go back to them. Going forward with new upgrade only to go backward with text displays. Any suggestions or solutions are welcome... thanks much

My 2008 iMac died recently and after several attempts by professionals, I was unable to get her started. I then had the hard drive taken out and cloned, so I have all the data that was on that computer. copying files is easy enough. But, I need to restore all the bookmarks I had stored on my browser (Firefox).

I have tried using the clone as the start up disk, but it will not recognize the external drive and allow me to use it as a start up disk. my laptop reads the external HD fine, and I'm able to navigate the various folders and copy and move files as normal. I just can't use it as my start up drive.

I imagine I have to navigate the various Firefox system files to get to the file that has my bookmarks and place it in the appropriate folder in my laptop's system folders to get them to open?

Can anyone help with this?

Up front, I'm on a MacBook Air, running Yosemite & using the latest Firefox. If your only interest in my question is to bash Macs, then (yawn) I'm not interested. If your interest is to sincerely help, then you have my interst as well:

I am stuck with a Firefox "Getting Started" link as the very first (far left) "bookmark" on my Bookmark Toolbar that I really want to delete: I've been into Apple computers (starting with the Apple ][e) & online since the mid 80s, so I'm hardly a naif newbie to the digital world or to Firefox, so having a "Getting Started" link in perpetuity is ridiculous, AND I really need the space to accommodate MY choices! So...

I've tried all of Firefox's recommended ways to remove unwanted bookmarks -- BUT, when I pull down the "Show All Bookmarks" command from Bookmarks in the Menu Bar, the "Getting Started" link does NOT exist, so I can't delete it there. I've even tied clicking & dragging it off of the Toolbar, but that doesn't work (nor does doing that plus dragging to the Trash. So, does ANYONE have a clue about this insurgent link???

I am trying to get ALL links clicked to open in new TAB. Before upgrade to v37.0.02 this worked beautifully but I have started to notice some links are now updating the PINNED TAB, rather than opening the link in a new tab. Only some.

All these sites I used before upgrade to v37.0.2. So I am confused as to why. What changed?

I have followed Co-rel guidance here: https://support.mozilla.org/pl/questions/970999
