Hello, Does Firefox "un-cloak" cloaked domains and reveal only true URLs?

When I type in uworlds.net.au the content (at uworlds.partnerconsole.net) is displayed with uworlds.net.au remaining in the address bar in INTERNET EXPLORER and SAFARI (desired result).

When I type in uworlds.net.au the content (at uworlds.partnerconsole.net) is displayed with uworlds.partnerconsole.net remaining in the address bar in FIREFOX.

Do you know why there is this difference? Thank you.

I am getting tired of the constant reminders to upgrade Firefox to 19. I have no intention of upgrading because according to the reports, I will lose my Norton Toolbar and I use it several times a day, at least. I can't/won't upgrade to a version that will be incompatible to the add-ons I need. The pop-ups ask me to "Upgrade Now," or "Ask Me Later." I don't want to upgrade now, and I don't want to be asked later! How can I get Firefox to leave me alone?

Please continue here: [/questions/954516]

I found menu/settings/clear private data from jscher2000's advice while in a website, but I'm uncertain as to what checkboxes to select for clearing history. I want to keep my bookmarks because it doesn't have the porno sites/addresses that attacked me, however the topsites and history does.

At Christmas time, I downloaded a look on my toolbar offered by Firefox that was Christmas candles. I've tried over 25 times to make it go away with no luck. I'm sure this is easy...but is sure isn't obvious. Can you help? It is just where my tabs go and it was an option I saw on Firefox to customize the screen. Seemed like a great idea on a cozy Saturday before Christmas but it has become UBER annoying.

When I select an MP3 file from a podcast site instead of offering me the option to download or automatically downloading, it starts playing in some default player. I almost always want to download so I can play it in a better player that won't crash when I stop and start it often. I have a Razr HD and have this problem with Chrome also. My old Sprint EVO 4G browser would always ask if I wanted to download or play the file. It was great! Please help!

Before I changed internet service providers, I could type my search queries into the url bar and receive search results from Google. After I switched ISPs, my queries typed into the url bar are put into my new ISP's horrible search engine. How do I change it back?

I've already tried going to about:config and changing the value of the keyword.URL preference to "http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=" but that didn't fix my problem.


New information since creation of the post:

My ISP is Optimum. I have opted out of DNS Assistance and still have seen no change.

When my search term is two words or more, I am directed to Google search results. If my search term is only one word, however, I am still directed to Optimum's search results.

They are in the question. I was very pleased with the old download box, I have a mac so when I got the new update from firefox, I was very surprised to see I can't look through the old downloads and can't see the speed in which the current file is being downloaded, it doesn't make sense to cut those options off...

Can I disable or move the Firefox menu that appears when I right click? (The Firefox menu blocks my Yahoo, Box, and application menus.)

The context-sensitive Firefox menu that appears when I right click on a link appears exactly over the context-sensitive application menus that come up in Yahoo, Box, and other sites, so the Firefox menu blocks me from seeing or clicking on the Yahoo or Box menu options. Is there a way to prevent the Firefox menu from appearing on top when another menu is active? or a way to disable the Firefox menu when on certain web sites? Even having the Firefox menu appear in a different location (to the left, for example, instead of to the right), would enable me to see and access the website's application menu.

I was lissening to online radio. Firefox needed to update. After the latest update the windows media player plugin dissapeared from the add-on list, while still being installed correct. I reinstalled it, but that didn't work. I replaced/deleted some files in firefox as suggested for similiar problems, but that didn't work either. Now I can't play wmp files anymore on firefox.

I hope u can help me solve this problem.

Suddenly, since the latest update (20.0.1) my right-click menu is terribly LONG. It's filled with things that seem useful, but are not to be and are not necessary at all. E.g. it contains video-control options, like mute and play, go full screen.

More weird and worse above this is: absolutely nothing in that same menu works or does anything. I

Here is a screen capture of it. It is the regular menu, randomly clicked, which appears everywhere. http://s23.postimg.org/ur0zwg4bf/regrigclibar.png

What's about this? Bug? I think anyway it is broken and needs to be solved.
