When I call wget on a webpage, I get raw HTML in response. I would like to write a simple parsing script which extracts the main article text content from web pages with similar structure, i.e. different documentation articles about Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications. I am pretty sure I should inspect the HTML tree, figure out which nodes tend to contain article headers and paragraphs, and then just write a script that retrieves those nodes. What would be the simplest way to inspect the HTML tree to find the nodes, and then with which library should I extract the text content from those nodes? Thank you

Using latest updated Windows 10 and latest updated Firefox 92.0, when I open up Google Maps and click on "Show your Location" button it shunts me off to the middle of Chicago, rather than downtown Menlo Park, CA.

I double checked whether my WIndows Settings were set to allow location, and it was still set to "On." I also tried using Chrome and there, everything worked as expected. I also tried Microsoft Edge, and there it was broken as well.

So, the problem could be with Windows or Firefox apparently...Not sure how to fix or at least work around the problem.

Since sometime in August 2021, I suspect after an update, occasionally when I launch Firefox it reports that it was unable to restore a previous session. I do not have the option to open previous sessions selected. On other occasions it starts properly with a blank page as it is configured to do.

Am I missing a setting?

It is not a major problem, I can simply enter a URL or search string in the address bar and it works properly for the rest of the session.

It is happening both on my Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro PCs running the 64-bit version of Firefox.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

I'm using Windows 10 and have installed FF 92.0 as the default browser and recently installed MS Works 9.

When I click on a link within a document it does not open. The cursor does change to a hand & it does say "CTRL +click to follow link https….", but that doesn’t work. However it does turn on the Underline function in the word processor.

Clicking on links has worked for years with Windows 7 and MS Works 7. I don’t see any settings in Works 7 or 9 that control this.

Is there a FF setting that enables this?

Is there a way to change the location of the default storage directory? I'm talking about ~/.mozilla/firefox/tjdaag57.default-release/storage/default which gradually fills with files from all the websites I've visited. That directory slowly increases in size and I don't want that, so I'm looking for a way to change the location where these files go.

Suddenly my mouse cursor is erratic when I am using Google Maps through Firefox. The cursor is invisible and shows up erratically on the screen. Very hard to select anything on a map. This problem seems to have started out of the blue yesterday (September 10, 2021). I made no changes to anything that I am aware of. This problem does not happen on any other browser page, or any other application on my PC. Just Google maps through Firefox. I tried Google Chrome and the cursor worked fine.

Using two websites and now they do not load properly. They show as if they are word documents. I have to use Opera to get the original look. One site, I click on the links and nothing happens. Everthing was fine before the current update. These constant updates are getting really annoying and there is no consideration on how they affect users or the display of sites

How can I define the Google (gmail.com) account that opens when I enter "gmail.com" in the search bar? The "donaldwilliams@gisthailand.org" is defunct; I cannot delete it. Yet Firefox defaults to that account.

How to change the default account?

This does not occur in Safari.

There was a clear indication that simply resetting Firefox would save passwords while hopefully improving performance. BUT ALL LOCKWISE PASSWORDS AND LOGONS HAVE APPARENTLY BEEN LOST. There are online instructions to copy/paste all data in the Old Firefox Data fldr to the "new profile fld" in 'about:profiles'. But the lost passwords still do not appear. Can anyone explain:

(1) is it possible to recover lost passwords from Old Firefox Data ? (2) why this happened despite false re-assurance that passwords would not be lost ?

Thanx. Boiling Madman

I just reinstalled Firefox. There was a "search with amazon.ca" at the bottom of the options when I clicked on the search toolbar. (This was not a suggested search engine on the bottom row, with the other search engines -- it was popping up with the list of websites I visit.)

I deleted Amazon.ca from the list of suggested search engines and now instead of "search with Amazon.ca" it simply shows "Amazon.ca Low prices fast shipping" in its place and I can't seem to get rid of this. And I want this gone for a number of reasons, the least of which is that it takes me to Amazon.com where I don't even have an account.

v92

This issue started happening only after v92 self-installed, as far as I can tell.

When I start typing in the address bar, even one letter, websites I frequently visit immediately autocomplete. I do NOT have these websites as saved bookmarks. I have cleared history within Firefox, with CCleaner, and with Privazer, but doing so does not affect this behavior. (CCleaner and Privazer also clear everything else, as far as I can tell.)

In Settings, under "Address Bar > When using the address bar, suggest", I have Bookmarks checked. If I uncheck Bookmarks, the behavior stops. BUT AGAIN, I DON'T HAVE THESE SITES BOOKMARKED.

I did a search in C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla for files containing the web addresses and found that they are contained in a filed called SiteSecurityServiceState.txt in one of Profiles (not the current one as far as I can tell). I don't know if this is relevant. And when I alter the web address in this file (e.g., change abc.com to axxbc.com) and save the file, the auto-complete behavior doesn't change.

Finally, I have an Excel file with hyperlinks to my favorite news and blog sites, which I use frequently. These are the same sites that are auto-completing. But if I delete this file, the behavior still occurs. I don't know how the existence of such a file could cause the behavior, but I thought I'd mention it.

Anyway, does anyone know where these addresses could be coming from or stored? Thanks.
