I attempt to paste data into an e-mail "reply" or a message post at:

http://www.lotterypost.com

AND this is the page that pops up:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Midas/Security_preferences

I've followed the directions but the user.js file is not on my computer. How do I download the file or how do I create the file on my computer.

The instructions are not very clear. I only have the option of creating a NEW FOLDER, not a file.

Are there any better instructions somewhere else?

This is getting very old having to open up Internet Explorer just to go to http://www.lotterypost.com.

I have 4 profiles in my C:\Documents and Settings\ral\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ folder. I think Firefox opens with eepi9w6m.b117. How can I find out?

I could use C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -ProfileManager if I knew how to make it prompt - howto uncheck the "open without asking" box without being able to open the dialog that contains it.

This pop up appeared, I clicked the x to close out the window and the page rage toolbar program automatically installed itself and now it is attached to my firefox browser. It makes my laptop run really slow. I tried to remove the program and it does not appear in the list anymore but the toolbar is still there. I tried system restore and all that did was knock out my virus protection. So I had to undo that. Now I am back where I started. My laptop runs so slow I can barely use it. This is primarily for my business so I really need help with this.

Script chrome://fctoolbar841468a1d7f44bd384e6bb0f13a06c64/content/fctoolbar.js:1 this sometimes stops Firefox opening, and delays new page opening with Mac's spinning disc. Using Firefox 3.6.17, don't want to upgrade because my version of 1Password doesn't work with 4. Have Mac Snow Leopard latest version. This is really getting annoying, slowing down Firefox a lot.

I am trying to create website changes and need to refresh a bunch to see my changes as I do this. I cannot get the page to refresh, no matter what I do. I'm on a Mac running OS 10.4.11 & Firefox 3.6.17.

I have tried holding the Command+Shift+R I have tried holding the Shift while clicking Reload.

The only thing that seems to work is going into the History and forcing a "Control+ Forget about this site"

As you can imagine this is a HUGE pain while making tons of changes to a page.

Please help! Thanks!

Only happens on first time firefox starts after cold boot or when setting as default from preferences. Have set Firefox as only option in file associations from within KDE components, Debian Control Center. This problem has existed since I rolled to Firefox 4, still with me after a clean reinstalling 3.6.17 deleted and reinstalled. I fixed that it would not open links from Thunderbird by selecting it in Control Center. All obvious "fixs" tried. help!

Today on my first Search bar attempt, my search page got redirected from Google to www.bigseekpro.com, which I had never heard of. I checked my Plugins and Addons, it didn't show up there. But my home page had also been hijacked, from the tabs I normally go to, to only go to this new page. I did find in C:\uerdatada\appdata\roaming\mozilla\firefox\profiles\cawypqyo.default a new folder created a few moments before, \searchplugins, and in this a file search.xml, which contained xml commands to redirect the search activity.

These look suspicious: the first command sets xmlsn:os to "http://a9.com", which I can't seem to find anything on with whois or tracert; bigseekpro.com itself traces to its registry at godaddy.com, but that's about all I'm finding.

If this is a legitimate place for Firefox to look for a plugin, why doesn't the Firefox plugin manager tell me it found something there? And why couldn't the Help articles on "Search not going where you want it to" also tell me about this?

Any ideas? Am I right to be highly suspicious of this behavior?
