Want to get inside of FF to remove residuals from deleted apps. Used to be able to do so after entering a phrase like about:blank and then agreeing that you were on your own. After that you could search and usually remove what you were looking for.

I have forgotten how to get to that point inside FF. Can you help me with that.

Thanks, Jack

First: nsAppShell: Event Window firefox.exe missing xpcom.dll;

Second: Procedure entry point ?JS_ValueToFunction@@YAPAVJSFunction@@PAUJSContext@@VValue@JS@@@Z could not be located

there might have been one more. Browser appears to work once these are bypassed, but I'd like to resolve them to avoid future troubles.

I was happily typing along and noticed both a typo and the fact that the typo was NOT underlined in red squiggles. Hmmmm, I thought.

Fiddling around, I discovered an option on right-click that allowed Me to turn on spellcheck. Now, every time I type in an email or forum, on Twitter, anywhere, I have to right-click to be sure of My spelling.

Thus began My efforts to find how to set the button to be on by default... Finding none led Me to "Help," which a search of the term "spellcheck default" led Me to a zero in returns. Sure, there were discussions with those terms, but I could not prowl them all looking for the method of setting spellcheck to be on by default. The first few pages yielded nothing...

So if You would please, direct Me to that function. [smile]

Thank You.

My Home Page startup session is saved in the options preferences. But it isn't returning to my personalized default. It adds tabs from last session. I thought they were supposed to disappear. They have done that for years, but not now. Have you changed it? Should I be closing each unwanted tab before ending a session?

Prevent FF from starting TB with profile manager

Using "email link" feature.

Regardless of how I set the email client to be Thunderbird, either in FF or in the OS (Win 7 64bit), TB starts up in the profile manager, and because TB is already running, I am unable to compose a message in the currently-used profile. I have 3 profiles defined, and I do not want to use either of the other 2.

I observe that the OS believes that the command line for running TB (from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Mozilla Thunderbird\Protocols\mailto\shell\open\command ) is

"C:\pctools\Mozilla\Thunderbird\v38.4.0\thunderbird.exe" -osint -compose "%1"

That is the correct path on my installation.

If I manually run that command from a command window, for example:

"C:\pctools\Mozilla\Thunderbird\v38.4.0\thunderbird.exe" -osint -compose

or

"C:\pctools\Mozilla\Thunderbird\v38.4.0\thunderbird.exe" -osint -compose "body='foobar'"

then TB starts up with compose window as expected (including "foobar" in that case).

I cannot, however, without doing some surgery on the registry, determine what argument FF is sending to the OS for the "%1" argument to TB.

If I knew the latter, maybe I could fix this problem.

Or, maybe someone can tell me how to fix the problem at user level?

I recall that years ago I had a similar problem on an XP machine, but I am not sure how I fixed it. I think I may have copied an Outlook version of mapi.dll into the windows system directory. However, it appears that now TB and/or FF have their own version of mapi.dll (with a somewhat different name).

Many websites display a message that I'm using an older unsupported Firefox version, and require an upgrade. But I'm running Firefox 43 (just installed recently). Need to find out what is causing this. Google Drive does not operate and redirects me to a browser upgrade screen. I have multiple versions of Firefox on my PC. I'm running Windows XP Home, Service Pack 3, 32-bit firefox. What do these websites look at in the request? Perhaps it is something in the request headers..

Any help is greatly appreciated..

Do password files differ between Firefox versions?

The page "Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data) seems to give different information (without identifying that that's what it's doing) depending on the Firefox version being used.

With v27, it says that signons.sqlite is one (1) of two (2) files where passwords are kept, but, with v39, it says that logins.json is such a file. (Both say that key3.db is the other file.)

First, why do the descriptions differ...and without explanation?

Second, if I'm going from a v39 machine to a v27 machine, and want my passwords to transfer over, I THOUGHT that backing up, and restoring, my profile would do the job, but, because of what I wrote above, it didn't.

Can you please advise me/us about this? Why are the files different? Why does the same page say different things without noting that that's what it's doing? How can I bring v39 passwords to a v27 machine?

Thanks, Bram Weiser

I have disabled all my add-on, searched for sound in about:config and there is still this annoying sound set up by something internal, external, hidden or forgotten like a setting perhaps? I can't turn it off.

I also checked my Win 7 system sounds and that is not the problem as it only happens with Firefox. I uninstalled and reinstalled it with no effect. Please help. (It was also happening with MS Word but stopped after changing system sounds to something and then to none for opening programmes but the sound still occurs in Firefox)

Whenever I start Firefox, I see wmiprvse.exe load as a running process. I see this happen by using Sysinternal's Process Explorer. This has been happening since I updated to the current version of Firefox (32.0.1). It also happens whenever I start up the current version of Thunderbird (31.1.1). I have two questions:

1. Is this normal behavior? 2. If so, why is it necessary?

And just to clarify things, I have researched this for HOURS using "my friend" Google. I have also tried to get answers to these questions in various newsgroups to no avail. My copy of wmiprvse.exe is NOT infected (I ran it through Virustotal) and is only located where it is supposed to be on my hard drive.

Please help me by sticking to answers to the two questions I have, and bear in mind that I'm only talking about XP SP3.

Just had to create the third account in as many years to get FF support. All I wanted to do was ask how to get rid of the icon in the address bar since it does nothing for me. But the larger issue is that I could not get my username or passwords from my previous two accounts since the "confirmation email" won't send. I tried the email addresses I used and requested a "confirmation email" multiple times and nothing arrived in any folder spam or otherwise. My first account here was deleted because I refused to allow moderators to verbally abuse me and my account was closed in childish retaliation, my second account to replace that one somehow vanished over the last year even though I didn't post anything, and so here I am with now the third account in as many years. Why are my accounts going away and why won't the email to recover my account get sent? It's almost as if FF is blocking me from getting support here, which of course is entirely possible considering the low quality of humans they find to bully us around on these forums.
