Browsing history in Firefox 17 - can I keep this for a specific number of days?

Earlier versions of Firefox would let us specify how long to keep browsing history, and would then automatically clear out anything older than that. I can't find this option in Firefox 17. I've been having serious problems with FF, with frequent and lengthy pauses, which I finally traced to there being far too much browsing history being held. When I cleared out all browsing history, it seems to have resolved itself (crossing fingers). For the record: I had also tried starting in Safe Mode (w addons disabled), defragging my hard drive, radically reducing the number of open tabs, etc. Clearing browsing history was the only thing that made a difference.

Can we setup FF so that it will automatically clear out old browsing history? It seems to be all-or-nothing in Tools > Options > Privacy. I have FF clear out the cache every time I close it, but I don't want to clear out all history; just past a certain time (e.g. 90 days). I'm aware that I can manage this manually through History on the main menu, but I would rather this happen automatically.

Thanks in advance for the help with this.

I am running Firefox 14.0.1 in a Citrix Enviroment and the applications are being virtualized. If a user is running Firefox, the user is able to browse the local machine and launch applications if he or she knows the path to the applications.exe. I was able to lock down IE uisng Active Directory group policy but I am unable to fine a solution that I can apply for Firefox. I have FireFox installed on over 50 servers running Windows 2008 R2 64 bit.

When I launch firefox it normally asks for my master password. That's fine, I've set a master password for myself but now when I go to enter it and hit OK nothing happens. I have to hit cancel at the prompt for a master password for the browser to launch. At that point if I go and change the master password it accepts my password and I'm now "logged in" to the password database. I can repeat this process every time I restart the browser.

This site requires a user name to be filled in a specific box and in another box you have to enter a series of numbers generated by a number generator (so not a password - different series every time you log in). However I don't want my username to appear automatically in the first box. When trying to change this in the security settings (extra-options-security), there is a password section where you can choose exceptions to the rule of remembering (if the remember box is marked). When clicking this exceptions box, the url of the site I'm talking about is not shown and it cannot be entered either, since you can only remove here. When clicking the "saved passwords" option, neither the site nor the username is listed. I think I have read all the help sections in relation to usernames and passwords, but found no solution. How do I prevent this username (so only a username - not the combination usename/password), to appear in the box?

I recently installed Firefox on a new computer and proceeded to customize it with bookmarks etc. I entered one password, which the browser has stored, but not the checkbox for "remember passwords" is not only unchecked, but it is faded out and cannot be re-checked. I've tried to solve the problem by disabling add-ons and opening it in a safe mode, and even re-installed the browser. All to no effect. What can I do next?

I have a blog sign-in on the Washington Post website. I use it all the time. Today, Firefox is blocking it, because it is an "Untrusted Website". I checked the page's certificate and it looks OK. I don't know why this is happening, but there seems to be no way to override the block. The dialog box won't even open fully. This is all I get This Connection is Untrusted



         You have asked Firefox to connect

securely to id.washingtonpost.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is

That's all it shows. Please fix this problem for me.

In one of my websites where it tells me to log on the log on icon is hidden. I can find it by scrolling over it with my mouse and the pointer changes from an arrow to a hand with a pointed finger. I contacted the financial website and they told me the following:

Firefox for Windows/Mac

1. Click on Firefox at the top of the screen (where is this?) 2. In the 'Firefox' drop down menu choose Preferences 3. Click on Advanced tab at top 4. Click on the Network tab 5. In the 'Cached Web Content' section, click Clear Now 6. Close/reopen browser

I have tried to find where on the Firefox screen they are talking about and cannot find where to change preferences and attempt to see exactly what I am clicking on. Any help?

Firefox does not trust a specific secure website that I know is secure, but it does trust other secure websites. Also, Internet Explorer trusts this website and Firefox on another computer trusts this same website. When I try to connect Firefox tells me that it does not have a valid certificate (even though I know one exists) and that I would have to make an exception to connect. Is there some way I can correct this and get the proper certificate into this particular Firefox program?
