I have written a very small javascript. It works perfectly on IE but it is not working on Firefox. Each and every javascript I write, meet the same problem. Javascript is not dissabled in my firefox browser, and I am using the latest version(3.6.9). This is one of my scripts.

<meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="Content-Type"> <title>Untitled Document</title> <script language="javascript"> function namechecker() { var firstNameLength = txtFirstName.value.length; while (firstNameLength==0) { firstNameLength=prompt("Enter your First Name",""); txtFirstName.value = firstNameLength; } } </script> Enter your First Name: <input name="txtFirstName" type="text">

On the rare occasions when Firefox crashes and I restart it I often end up getting the same problem that led to the initial crash because Firefox tries to restore all the windows from the previous session. I looked in the preferences but couldn't find a way to change this behavior. I don't want it to try and re-open old windows when it restarts, just go to my home page and let me reopen windows manually. Can I set that somehow?

If I open a new email from my inbox it takes a while to load then I can't read the email because this stupid Bing search bar pops up where the email would be and I can't see the original message. This same Bing search bar shows up in place of a new tab. I downloaded video viewing software related to bing from the internet yesterday and I think this is the source of my problem. How can I fix this?

I am trying to configure Firefox so I can use my CAC card reader with it. My problem is when I try to load a module under Tools>Options>Advanced>Encryption>Security Devices. When I try to load acpkcs201.dll (or any of the other alternate .dll files) I get an error message that says "Unable to load module".

When I try to use the DoD Configuration 1.2 add-on from forge.mil, it also is unable to make this configuration.

The CAC reader and software works fine under Chrome and IE. The only problem is the .dll wont load up in Firefox using the add-on or manually.

Does anyone know how to make this module load properly?

I am using: Windows 7 x64 Firefox 3.6.9 SCR331 card reader ActivClient 6.2

I just upgraded to a new computer with Windows 7 and Outlook 2010. I'm running Firefox 3.6.9.

When I right click on a website and choose "Send link", Firefox correctly uses Outlook as the email client. However, I have several accounts configured in Outlook (gmail, my work account, my ISP account, etc) and the account Firefox uses is not the one I want to use. I want my gmail account to be the default, not my work account which is what it uses.

Outlook is correctly configured to have my gmail account as my default address. For example, if I choose "New email" from within Outlook, the account it uses is my gmail account. If I want to use another account, I have to manually change it.

I want my Firefox Mailto: to work the same way. I can't find anything within Firefox that allows me to specify which account Outlook uses; Outlook itself is set to use gmail as the default account; what am I doing wrong?

I have use custom settings for history. I have checked accept cookies from sites and accept third party cookies. This problem keep recurring. Why? I check the Google search preferences I want and sometimes one of the preferences gets saved but not the number of results per page I prefer. Or, I get an error message that cookies are not enabled.

It is bad enough having to use Firefox NON-support to begin with. Then to find a fix and have the same problem recur over and over again is ludicrous.

Running 3.6 on Windows 7. I have deleted all cookies, deleted preferences.js, and do not know what else to do. This has been the status for about a week now. The only thing I can think of that I have installed at around the same time is Microsoft Security Essentials, but disabling its real-time protection did not change the behavior. It may be a system issue, since I have the same problem with Chrome and IE 8! I use ZoneAlarm, Symantec Endpoint Protection 11, Spybot as well, but I'm not sure how those would affect this particular setting. Thanks in advance.

I have installed FireFox 3.6.9 and after while JavaScript has started to malfunctioning, although I have the latest Java installed (Java 6 Update 21) and JavaScript turned on in my Options menu. I have tried already several times to reinstall Java and Firefox as well, but nothing helps, the Firefox browser still ignores the installed java. I am running Windows Vista. I have had once the same problem long time ago, but don't remember, how did I solve it. Otherwise, I have been really satisfied with Firefox and would like to keep using it, however, without Javascript running it is useless.
