Because of the location where I live, most of google services are blocked on the internet. Yesterday I wanted to download a device driver from www.m-audio.com but the driver's page stopped loading. I noticed a message at the bottom left of the Firefox window saying "waiting for www.google.com" or something similar. Because of that wait, I could open the page only after 4 tries and waiting way too much time. Can I filter page contents from google so Firefox skips them?

I run Firefox with multiple profiles, as there are several people that use this computer. I start firefox with -p <profilename> -no-remote.

This all works fine except if I'm in try to open a link from for instance in an email, I click on the link and it opens the profile manager. If I select a profile that already has an open window I get an error message stating

"Firefox cannot use the profile "Rick" because it is in use. To continue, close the running instance of Firefox or choose a different profile."

Is there anyway to have it open the link in a new tab of an already running profile, rather then having to close the profile and then click the link.

Some folks helped me with this when I rebuilt this PC (the one I am using to send this info), and I remember most of the path and method but not well enough to attempt it without some guidance. The other PC is an ASUS G50VT-X5 laptop.

Thanks in advance for your help

Firefox website shortcut icons on my desktop now look like the first choice one sees when right clicking a shortcut icon , then left clicking "properties", and then clicking " change icon" -- they should look like a white square with the firefox logo in the center instead of a white square with a little box containing 3 tiny symbols.

I'm running XP Pro SP3

How do I restore the original appearance?

I just updated to the newest Firefox. I'm sad that the google toolbar is no longer supported. But I'll soldier on... <big sigh>.

Seriously though: The function I miss from google toolbar is the drop down menu in the search bar, allowing me to 'drop down' and reselect a previous search phrase... what can I say, I'm scatter brained and easily distracted, so I often return to a concept multiple times a week.

How can I emulate the same function in FF 17?

I have an Apple Mac (running MacOS 10.6.8) at a remote location. I want to be able to run Firefox on this machine but with the Firefox display window redirected to my local Mac. I used to be able to do this with UNIX (e.g. LINUX etc.) systems running X11 by setting the DISPLAY variable on the remote host. Is it possible to do this using the X11 on the Mac? and, if so, do I need to rebuild Firefox to display using X11? At the moment, whatever I try, Firefox just starts its window on the system on which it is started.

How do I get Firefox to check add-on compatibility first, then ask me if I want to continue the Firefox update? The update process currently only tells me that an add-on has been disable after applying the Firefox update. The Options > Advanced > Update tab switch, "Warn me if this will disable any of my add-ons", does not seem to work.

I would like to know if there's an extension, or if I need to write a script so that Firefox will stop a redirect to a trap yahoo page, that yahoo causes when I try to access my yahoo mail account. Yahoo redirects from my email page every time I try to access it. I can force my way back to email if I highlight the following from the address bar and delete it: /neo/trap?dm=cl&ncrumb=IvdoOqzobdy&.rand=1254591153

That address qualification appears when I try to access "mail.yahoo.com"

If there is no extension I can use, can you explain what I should use to write a script? And where I can research to learn how to write it.

If you could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.

In the (now closed) thread:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/814310#answer-174482

It recommends: "Go into the options and untick the double click to translate box" for "Google Dictionary and Translate 2.5 add-on"

... but does not explain how to get to the options. I am not sure, in fact, that this is the solution.

I have "Easy Google Translate (3.1)" ... but this is already disabled. I don't see any other Google Translate add-on installed at this time, per: "about:addons" ... I also searched "about:config" for "Translate" and didn't find Google Translate their either.

am I looking in the right place, or is there another solution?

Hope someone knows the answer...

Thanks in advance.

I don't have a question, just a suggestion for others with a similar issue.

I recently upgraded to FF 17.0. I also tried a couple of new extensions because my old ones were incompatible. It seems that one of the new extensions installed Ask.com on any New Tabs that I opened. I searched for a fix and could only come up with

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/837470

I started FF in Safe Mode with everything disabled and it still happened. I removed all the new extensions and it still happened.

Finally, I figured something out that DID work. If you are having a similar problem, try this:

Type "about:config" into the address bar.

Type "ask" into the Search bar.

Find the following entry:

browser.newtab.url

Double-click on it and simply delete the value. Now all of your New Tabs will open to a blank page. Or, if you want a different page, type in the address (e.g. google.com, bing,com, etc.).

Problem solved.
