Greetings,

How do I maximize the Cookies dialog box? I just noticed that the options layout has changed, and the maximize button is gone. For example, if I click Options > Privacy, and click the Show Cookies button, I can't figure out how to maximize this. The previous version had this option.

I'm using Mac OSX 10.7.5., and I can easily access the folder on my current drive holding the option key (so that the hidden Library appears) I then get bookmarks from otherwise hidden folders (since this is my new startup drive)

BUT

I need to copy/ move my LATEST bookmarks from about ten days ago, from a dying hard drive. The drive is useable, just not boot-able.

BUT

Since this amazing new "hold option on GO in the Finder menu to see the invisible library feature" (sarcasm) requires your operating system to be booted, I cannot access the bookmark folder in the Library. How can I do this if Finder is not booted on the dying drive? Is this making any sense?

The Plugin has been blocked a couple times in the past. I did not know this until I did a refresh of Firefox. It is unblocked now. This is happening, I suppose when I make or received phone calls in Google (G-mail & Hangouts). My questions are these:

1) Why does this happen? 2) How might I prevent this from happening again? 3) Is there a simple way to check to see if the Plugin is blocked?


 If you need more info from me, I will surely  do my best to answer you to the best of my ability.

I recently installed an AddOn (ZenMate) which I later uninstalled because it was buggy. I regret ever opening it.

It's taken over my proxy settings. When I launch FF, it now says "The Proxy Server is Refusing Connnections". I go into my network settings, and notice it has selected automatic proxy configuration, with a link to some zenmate garbage. So, I reset it to no proxy, and voila! Problem solved. Except it's not. Upon exiting FF, and then launching again, it resets to that auto proxy garbage everytime.

Can anyone please help?

Thanks!

How to remove yahoo search default from Firefox 38.0.1 (Macintosh)

How do I remove the automatic reset of Firefox to the awful yahoo search engine? I want Google as default search engine. Here is what I have already tried: a. Choosing Google over yahoo and then deleting the yahoo from preferences: Firefox always springs back to yahoo. b. Dowloading the "Google default" app. This worked on earlier versions of Firefox, before V 38.0.1. But it appears that the commercial interests behind Firefox have now circumvented this, as well, because the "Google default" app now no longer works. c. Erasing, and then re-installing the "Google default" app. No improvement.

If there is no way to deal with this, then I'm dumping FF and switching to Google Chrome.

I have done absolutely nothing. Auto updates on everything on my PC is ON. Now, today, I find Google Maps freezes after I have selected it, before I have done anything - the whole PC, requiring Ctrl/Alt/Del to get out of it, and Task Manager shows Firefox consuming oodles of RAM and multiplying! WTF?

Any secure site is viewed as an untrusted connection. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. I have two work computers - Firefox works on one, but not the other. I have looked at the other relevant articles already, and tried everything to fix this problem. I have completely reinstalled Firefox, I have refreshed it, I have deleted the cert8.db file, I have run it in safe mode, and I have run it with the Skip Cert Error 0.4.4 extension. Nothing works - I cannot even access support.mozilla.org without running into this error. If I let the skip cert error do its thing for a while, sometimes I can access a bare-bones version of the site with a white background and all links in blue underlined text, all aligned left. There's got to be a better way.

Unfortunately, I cannot post from the computer that has the problem, as it can't access this site.... let me know what information would be helpful and I'll copy it over.

Why is unwanted code (div/link64_adl_tabid/number) added in text editors (ckEditor, WordPress, etc.)?

I recently noticed that when I am working in WordPress, or using an online text editor, or tech support anywhere, I am getting hidden code added at the bottom of the text area box:

521

I have tried using IE/Safari/Chrome on the same sites and none of them add this code. While the code is set to "display:none", it still shows up sometimes. I have to remember to check every page in code view, delete it, then save while in code view. As soon as I switch to "visual" mode, that code is inserted again.

I have searched for link64_adl_tabid and find other people asking about this with no solution, as well as links to pages that contain this code (like forums, tech support, etc.). Anywhere that people are posting, there seems to be this hidden code added.

I also tried using Firefox with all add-ons disabled - it still occurred.

Any ideas? It's driving me crazy and it's a real PITA to have to remember to remove it all the time.

When I start Firefox I want it to load the cached version of my tabs. It used to do this, but now it refreshes the tabs when it starts up. I have tried starting in safe mode and it also refreshes the tabs when it starts. I have set browser.cache.check_doc_frequency=2, so it should us the cached to load the tabs, but it is not. This change only happened in the last few month.
