When clicking on 'tools' to got to 'options,' there is no 'option' to be found. Hence, I cannot go to tools to options to content to fonts and colors, and cannot change the default size of the browser. All documents I want to print from a website have the small font size.

Disabling untrusted connection warning, or adding issuer without certificate?

I am using Firefox (20) in an environment where I am required to use a proxy to access any external websites, and the proxy has recently been changed in such a manner that it now intercepts HTTPS requests and seems to reissue the certificates from a new identity.

This means that every page I visit that uses HTTPS shows the 'untrusted connection' warning page. I can, of course, add exceptions - but I don't want to have to do this for every secure page (and every subdomain, including those only used for serving up images or stylesheets, etc).

Is there any way to.. disable the warning page? Add an exception for "*"? Add the identity that the certificates are being reissued under to my trusted list (I don't have access to the certificate file)?

Neither Chrome or IE exhibit this behaviour under the same conditions.

NB: Troubleshooting info attached is from a different computer.

Firefox just stops running at random times. I used to be able to close it thru task manager no problem. Now when I try that nothing happens. The process highlights and just stays there running no matter how many times I click it. I can close other processes just fine. Firefox hangs a lot more often lately and it's a pain to have to constantly shut down and restart to clear it. Firefox hangs while in different websites or even after I've closed it but haven't shut down since. When I try to reopen it I get the "already running not responding" message. But even when I close normally it still seems to stay on in the background. I'm not tech savvy at all so any solution would be appreciated. Thanks.

Apparently pushed the wrong "Download" button. Now instead of my homepage (which I have reset), when I open Firefox the "search.conduit.com" page opens. I used the "about:config" procedure several times but it didn't work. There is nothing listed on "add/remove" that is related. Also scanned with Ad-aware, Super AntiSpyware and Norton 360. How do I clean search.conduit out of my browser?

I had my bookmarks toolbar enabled (View - Toolbars - Bookmarks Toolbar). Yesterday, the toolbar disappeared. On the View-Toolbars menu, Bookmarks Toolbar was still selected. I unselected it and the toolbar appeared. Although now, Bookmarks Toolbar on the menu was unselected. Next time I started Firefox, the toolbar was gone again. I selected it from the menu and it reappeared. But next time I started it, it was gone again and Bookmarks Toolbar on the menu was showing as selected.

How do I fix this?

My yahoo toolbar cannot be modified and is essentially useless. The refresh button doesn't work, and none of the icons (apps) are the ones I used to have. The yahoo instructions suggest using the plus sign, which also doesn't appear. I have seen others having similar problems, but mine is with Firefox version 20.0 and Windows 7. My computer is new, and I used the sync feature to maintain my Firefox settings, bookmarks, etc, which may or may not be related to the problem. Yahoo help used to be better and more personalized. Now I can't even find a way to contact them. Someone elsewhere on this site gave a phone number, but I was on hold forever. Any ideas?

I was using a theme which increased the height of tabs. Unfortunately, the theme conflicted with tab menu setting using the TabMixPlus extension. I am stuck with the default theme or others which do not increase the tab height. I have tried a variety of codes in userChrome.css to no avail. I am presently using the default theme with Firefox 20.0.1 (a Linux operating system).

I'm using Windows 20, and recently install Freemake Video Downloader. I remember that I had not checked the "Make Freemake my default search provider" when installing the product. But still, Firefox use it as the default search engine. I've did some research, which tell me to go to the search box, choose the drop-down arrow, and click "Manage Search Engines". The thing is, the Freemake search engine was not there. So I just delete every search engine except only one I like, and resart the browser. Surprisingly, it has change to the homepage and search engine I want, except for one thing. If you type in the address bar, it STILL use Freemake search engine. So I have search in Control Panel > Uninstall a problem (which I didn't found anything I don't install myself). I want to keep the program, but is there a way to reset this? I can do this in Chrome and Opera, why not Firefox?

Thank you.
