In my old Netscape my bookmarks were contained in a file named Bookmarks,HTML

Now with Firefox this is NOT the case. I want to keep a copy of the file that contains my Firefox bookmarks. What file(s) should I make a copy of so if needed I can restore my bookmarks?

Thanks,

G.F.K.

When I close Firefox, the window closes but the Firefox.exe process and Plug-in Container remain running in the background and have to be shut down using Windows Task Manager.

This happens frequently. Something in Firefox continues to run even when the program is closed. The process has to be stopped before I can open Firefox again.

When I try to go to or close almost every web site. The message appears at least twice. This has happened since I upgrade to 6.0.1 (which I did as my previous version was crashing every 30 seconds or so!) While I can still do what I need to this is most time consuming and annoying. Anyone have an idea?

The button looks like a circle. In the center of the circle is a double arrow pointing to the right. The circle is made up of 4 segments 2 black and 2 red. The button is located on the far right side of the toolbar - to the right of the search box. Unlike all the other buttons in the toolbar, a tooltip do not appear when I point to to the button. When customizing the toolbar, I can't move or remove the button. Nothing appears to happen when I click it - except that the button's image changes. When clicked, it looks like an "x" has been superimposed over the button and the colors in the button change to black & white.

Hi,

I use Firefox 6.0.1 on Windows 7.

I installed Free Desktop Clock 2.37 from Drive Software, and then Firefox was hi-jacked, though I carefully chose the custom installaion.

Edit: Free Desktop Clock itself does not hi-jack Firefox. It's another program (name forgotten) bundled with Free Desktop Clock that did it, adding a toolbar, changing the homepage, changing the default search engine, etc. Actually, those forced alterations can be changed back easily, such as a resetting of the "keyword.url" pref. So, "hi-jack" may be a description that's too strong.

Anyway, I have managed to clean it up -- unsolicited toolbar, forced homepage, forced default search engine, etc.

But there is still one problem.

In the dialogue window of Manage Search Engine List, which appears when you click the drop arrow on the left of the Search Bar and then click Manage Search Engines, the Restore Defaults button is disabled (grayed out).

How can that button be re-enabled?


Thanks.

The FireFox' disk cache foler is set to D:\Cache (I set it so from about:config).

I cleared the disk cache, watched a YouTube video (almost 2 minute long), then looked into D:\Cache. But the video I had watched was not there! (I found two .SWF files. But their sizes were smaller than 250K. And, stand-alone SWF players couldn't play them. Therefore, they can't be YouTube videos.)

So, where does Firefox cache videos?

Greetings,

I'm currently experiencing a problem using JavaScript with Firefox. I can load fine JavaScript in the website, and it's enabled and everything. In that sense, JavaScript is fine.

However, when I try to run a JavaScript with the "command", "javascript:" in the browsing bar, it doesn't works anymore. I can't even do simple stuff like "javascript: alert("Hi!");". I wish to know if there is some way to fix this. I do use this "feature" pretty often to test small scripts.

Thanks.

I upgraded to 6.0.1 and experimented with the tab groups. Now I cannot turn it off. It seems to force the same tabs to be opened with the next session. I had (and still have) the warn me when I close multiple tabs. It overrides that option if I click the close the window. It just closes the firefox window and reopens all the tabs with the next session. This nullifies the best feature that firefox had over chrome.

Please help me to get my old Firefox back...

let's say i have six tabs open. it used to be that if i want to return to these six tabs at a later date, i could say "save all these open tabs in a single folder." then later i could select that folder and say "open all the tabs in this folder." this way the original set of tabs in the original order would be displayed for me again. i did not have to mess with each tab on its own. i cannot seem to find this functionality in firefox any more. is it gone? is it superseded by some new and different functionality? is it relocated? thanks

When I go into Tools, Options, Privacy and set 'Use custom settings for history' and then click okay it will not save. It stays on 'Remember history', though it will save 'Never remember history' as I tested this. This seems to have happened after recent Firefox latest update. Does anyone know why I can't choose 'Use custom settings for history' as this is the setting I want to use?

Arabic text characters are all connected one to another in a word, but FireFox displays the letters right, except they are disconnected and each letter is on its own, making it very difficult if not impossible to read.

What I used to do in the past is, pages that contain Arabic Text for me such as Facebook, I used to install IETAB2 and set facebook to always open with IETAB and then the text would display correctly.

The strange thing is, if you use IE, it would display the same garbage isolated Arabic letters, but the IETAB with IE7 emulation works like a charm.

With that said, recently, FF stopped displaying arabic text correctly even with IETAB2

But Google Chrome always works like a charm without the need for anything.

I have tried changing the encoding on the site but that doesn't help

Can anyone suggest anything please?

Google Chrome, Correct display of Arabic Text:

FireFox with IETAB or without, same result:

Anything other than UTF-8 will just display as jibberish.

But the problem with UTF-8 is that the Arabic letters are not linked one to the other, each one is seperated, makeing it very difficult to read.

What's even weirder is, I checked with Chrome, which displays Arabic Text just fine, and it is also using the UTF-8 encoding but it works!? Please help as I don't want to use Chrome :(
