cannot set param element value attribute using javascript setAttribute

When appending param elements via createFragment the setAttribute javascript function does not set the "value" attribute. It is necessary to set the nodetext to add the this value attribute to the param element.

Second when using the latter method the generated html sets the "value" to the innerHTML. The resulting HTML when view by "Inspect" looks like this.

<param id="myID">myValue</param>

Note: [the element close text </param> is correctly displayed using Inspect but when using File->SavePageAs the ending text is not saved correctly. I have reported this in another Moz. question in FF Help.]

function setparamAttrs(parmID, parmVal) {

var gData = document.createDocumentFragment();
 var newNode = document.createElement("param");
 var textStr = document.createTextNode(parmVal);
 newNode.appendChild(textStr);
 newNode.setAttribute("id", parmID);
 //newNode.setAttribute("value", parmVal);  // this does not work
 //newNode.setAttribute("innerHTML", parmVal);  //this does not work
 gData.appendChild(newNode);
 document.body.appendChild(gData);

}

I was, however, able to retrieve the "value" after it was appended using:

var val = document.getElementById("parm0").value);

getAttribute("value") does not work either.

Finally I added the param elements to my HTML as this; <param id="myID">myValue</param>. I then attempted to extract the value using document.getElementById("myID").innerHTML. No text was returned. When I examined the HTML document with Inspect my HTML param element was displayed as <param id="myID">myVal. The closing element text was missing the same as when I use SavePageAs that I previously reported.

I am setting up a new laptop after a HDD crash. I have copied across my Data, from a back up Ext HD. I have my old IE "favourites", saved in folders as "internet shortcuts", on my new C drive.

Please, how do I get those favourites / bookmarks into FireFox?

I have read elsewhere that I have to import them first into IE, but the method described seems to only allow import of one file at a time. I have c 600 bookmarks.

I am using Win7 Home Premium and Firefox 10.0.01. I have IE9 on this computer.

Thanks

It's quite simple. I have a Canadian English dictionary installed on Firefox, but whenever I set it to that dictionary, it will be back to en-US when Firefox restarts. This did not used to be a problem, it kicked in only a month or so ago. Before then, it was permanently on en-CA.

I've seen a few questions on this site talking about all preferences not saving, which is not the case, and some talking about some preferences not saving if you have a user preferences file, which I don't. It's really just the dictionary thing. Any information to keep this switched to Canadian would be appreciated.

When trying to access Live Chat, a message appears "There was an error checking the queue." I have seen this for quite some time so I know it is not an intermittent issue. A link appears underneath this message "You can try starting a chat session." When I click this I am brought to a blank page with the title "Leave A Message." What is going on? Even at the bottom of the Contact Us page there is mention of live chat under Technical support.

It only recently started happening, but when I run a search on Google the links provided send me to ad sites and non-recognized search engines.

Searches ran through the Mozilla search bar at top right of browser are unaffected, it's only when running a search through Google.com. Going directly to a site's URL is also not affected.

I ran a malware check, and deleted affected files, but it is still occurring. Any ideas?

i made the mistake of updating Firefox yesterday and with the ssl security fix find that i can longer connect to a web site at a remote data center that is protected by a fortigate appliance.

i know the correct answer is to get the appliance upgraded or replaced but in the meantime i am in desperate need of a workaround. it would be nice if there was an archive of old Firefox versions.

i have changed the config settings to allow renegotiation but i think the problem is more fundamental than that in that it doesn't appear that older versions of ssl are provided anymore.

Last night I had to restart my Firefox because a new version of Java plugin asked for it. After the restart all my sessions were lost. I tried to get it back with sessionstore.bak but it didn't work out either. So now I think maybe I can get it back if I export my sessionstore.bak to a different browser (for example IE?) and import it back to Firefox.

There's a way to do so?
