Hi,

I'm using firefox for several years, but recently i discovered a weird effect on one of my computers, which was consistent across many FF versions (up to the recent version 17 now). All drop down menus on facebook were not working for me. On one pc I can click on the red globe, and a menu opens - while on the other pc nothing happened. Now I was able to reproduce it.

As soon as I activate the "ask how long cookies are stored" option in the privacy settings, the drop down menus wont work/show. Choosing the default "Keep them as long as they are valid" reenables the drop down menus.

I really like the cookie storage time option so i can decide which website will remember me.

I am no doubt asking in the wrong place, but...I have Apache2 running on a linux locally. I believe I have set it up to support server-side includes. I have a cgi-bin perl script, hell.pl:

#!/usr/bin/perl

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "Hello, world\n";
exit;

Under Firefox, I can generate the Hello World page through the url

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/cgi-bin/hell.pl

where xxx.xxx... is the apache2 server address.

But if I try to do that via the html file:

<HTML>
<HEAD></HEAD>
Test:<BR>
<BODY>
<!--#include virtual=/cgi-bin/hell.pl" -->
</BODY></HTML> 

All I get is page which is blank except for the "Test:" on line 1. The apache error and access logs show no relevant problems, as if the browser treats the serverside include as a comment.

I realize that the fault no doubt lies with the apache2 configuration, but I have studied and studied... and am now clutching at straws.

Changing from AT&T to Roadrunner, says ........ Proxy Servers - A proxy server lies in between your computer and the Internet. When you request a web page or other Internet content through your computer, you connect to your proxy. The proxy then requests the web page or content you're searching for on your behalf and returns it to you. The proxy's actions are carried out automatically and are invisible to you. A proxy is useful for filtering Internet content, connecting to the Internet through firewalls, and archiving web pages for quicker retrieval by users connected to it.

Road Runner does not support the use of proxy servers, and recommends that you disable proxies through your browser.

HSTS is problematic in that it incorrectly assumes that all users trust the default list of CAs and makes the adding of exceptions impossible even by advanced users.

For example, torproject.org is inaccessible on Firefox unless I am willing to trust DigiCert to never sign a fake certificate either by negligence or by court order of any country in witch they operate, thereby making every https: site ( not just torproject.org ) vulnerable to a MITM attack.

A user disabling CAs in the browser is not unreasonable given the ever growing list of CAs built into Firefox ( each one a potential point of failure ), the number of CAs that have been recently compromised and the very low standards required to obtain a certificate.

While I understand the desire to protect the average user who doesn't understand how certificates work and will click past warnings without reading them, this protection should not come at the expense of more security conscious users.

I would recommend an about:config setting that would allow the creation of exceptions by users who explicitly choose to do so.

So far the only kludge I have been able to come up with is to modify c:\program files\mozilla firefox\xul.dll with a hex editor and replace the sites on the list ( this is far from an ideal solution ).

I've been using a master password for years. I also use Sync. Today I wanted to look up one of my saved passwords. When I went to do this I noticed that Firefox was no longer set to use a master password. I'm afraid that I may have been hacked, or that something else happened (recent Firefox update?) that caused the use of the master password to be disabled.

I have not yet checked my other Synced computers to see if their master passwords have also been turned off.

I have re-enabled the master password feature on this computer.

On this particular computer, I've had a long-standing issue where Firefox "Help>About Firefox" always shows that I need to "Restart to Update". This means that I cannot use "Help>About Firefox" to check for and install the latest version. I need to download Firefox manually and update by running the installer.

So.. I heared that a site can see my browsing history using a bug.

I saw on some sites that this option: layout.css.visited_links_enabled should be turned off. i did so. Did I do good?

After this, i tryed this test: http://pcflank.com/browser_test1.htm and i failed COOKIE CHECK test. I got this message: "Your computer may save SPECIAL COOKIES on your hard drive that have the purpose of directing advertising or finding out your habits while web surfing."

After this, i tryed this test using Internet explorer 6 and Google Chrome, and this browsers passed the test. What should i do? Is this test good? IF not, please leave me a link with a test i should do.

I use Windows XP.

Thanks for your answers.

Hey,

My problem is that I set Tools / Options / Privacy / History to "Use custom settings for history", and then under cookies I set Keep until: to "I close Firefox".

Yet, when I close my browser and restart none of the cookies are deleted. If I save my tabs, I stay logged in on the websites that are open on the saved tabs. But even if I close the website, and then quit. And then reopen the website after launching Firefox again, I am still logged in. Whereas Firefox is set not to remember any of my usernames or passwords, so the only way this can happen is via cookies. Therefore, the cookies are not deleted. But I can also see it in the list of cookies: it's full of old stuff.

So why are cookies not deleted despite this setting?

Firefox has beeen pretty soft on privacy lately, and frankly I don't understand why. The possibility to have history older than X days automatically deleted has also been gone for a long time, and now this cookie setting doesn't work, either.

Ever since Firefox 16 and 17 versions came out I've always had this issue with the location bar not remembering my option. "When using the location bar, suggest: Nothing." Is what I prefer but if I ever reboot my computer or simply restart firefox over all, it always goes back to the option "History and Bookmarks." I find this very annoying. The reason I waited so long to report this is because I had hoped the next version of Firefox would take care of it. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem or will I have to simply wait till it's fixed by Firefox itself?

For example, I visited www.example.com on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Of all the 3 times, Firefox only remembers the visit on Wednesday. Because when I visited www.example.com on Tuesday, the history is renewed, deleting record of Monday; when I visit www.example.com on Wednesday, record of Tuesday evaporated.

So, no matter how many times I visit a certain web address, Firefox only remembers the last time. Is there a way to tweak Firefox to make it faithfully record history?

I'm not a native English speaker. I hope my poor English clearly describe the question.

Thanks in advance for your answers.
