Server Error in '/' Application. Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off". Why is this saying this and how do I fix it so i can see the site I want to see. It has let me see the site I want before...just did this today.

How do I stop Firefox from remembering my user names? I know about how to turn off the password remembering but that doesn't stop it from remembering my user names. The only way i know of to stop it is to clear my history. I don't want to keep doing that every time I close firefox.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== when it was installed

When I type in a website that does not exist, I am redirected to an Ad from "sendoriads.searchassist.com powered by Yahoo". This is not the case with IE? When I search for a solution to block this on my Firefox it says to go to Tools and Options to block automatic redirects. But, that option is not there?

How do I import passwords from an old profile without simply replacing the new set: to add them into the stored passwords in the new profile

How do I import passwords - and preferably bookmarks, but I can get to that later - from a mozilla profile I pulled off a failing hard drive, and ADD THEM into the passwords I have saved on another computer - but NOT to replace them. In other words, not to remove the password files for the working version of firefox in the process of transferring it over. Also, they're 2 different versions of firefox. There's a key3.db file all right, but the one I'm trying to bring over has signons2.txt, and not signons.sqlite. At the very least I need to access 2 of the passwords just to find out what they are, and the bookmarks are .html files instead of .json files. Why on earth did you change the file formats for later versions anyway, it's stupid.

I am using a PowerBook and have recently upgraded to 10.5.8 and would like to get the latest version of Firefox I can. However, FF's home page says 'unfortunately the latest version of FF is not compatible'. But when I look at the requirements it seems that mine should fit. Basically, what is the latest version of FF I can get and how do I find it to download.

Thanks

The past week, every time I click on anything - an e-mail in gmail, something on a website I want to go to, the arrow to scroll on a page, the Mac colorwheel comes on and it takes forever. I finally got so frustrated I switched back to my old Safari. But this is a new problem, and I didn't do anything to the computer to cause it. My internet connection is fine (cable) as Safari works great. So what's going on? (I have version 3.5.9)

Before installing the Firefox v3.6, my quicktime plugin was working. After I installed v3.6, the quicktime plugin didn't work. I tried to uninstall v3.6 and installed back v3.5, but the quicktime plugin is still not working. How can I make it work again or how to fix this? Thanks.

Is there a way to undo the installation of Firefox v3.6, meaning to remove any traces of Firefox 3.6 installation, because this problem only came after I installed Firefox 3.6.

I'm able to play streaming videos from websites (e.g. http://www.singingsuccess.tv/videos/?vid=251) BEFORE I installed v3.6. AFTER installing v3.6, the streaming video now shows a blue Q with a question mark in the center. I tried to uninstall that version and install back v3.5, but the problem still exist.

Thank you and hoping for your prompt reply. More power.
