1. If I am connected to a website and would like to find the resolved IP address, how do I do that?

I know that I can use commands such as tracert in a terminal window, but I would prefer to find the IP address Firefox just used to get to the webpage.

2. Shouldn't this info be provided using the View Page Info selection? What is the philosophy behind not providing this information?

Thank you.

I think the following, quote below, from the help page is my problem.

I have this one website I use that when I click on a link within the website it is opening a new window with the tab at the bottom. Also, when this happens, I am losing the orange FireFox rectangle, bookmarks and navigation options. How can I set FF31 so that the link opens in a new tab and I keep all my options? I am using Classic Theme Restorer 1.2.3. I also notice that in the new window I lose the ability to use some of the addons.

I have two laptops and both are running FF31 and W7. One of them is working perfectly and the other is having this problem. As far as I can tell they are both set up the same. The only difference is that when I upgraded to FF31 they both had difference older versions of FireFox. I also read in the help forum that maybe I need to go back to FireFox 28 to accomplish what I am trying to accomplish.

I noticed that when I go under about:config that the version of FF that is not working has fewer available options versus the version that is working. An example would be that the working version has "browser.tabs.onTop" where on the other laptop this is missing.

>>>Open new windows in a new tab instead: This option controls whether links from other applications or from web pages which request to open them in new windows are opened in a new window or a new tab in the most recent window. Note: If you have chosen to open pages in new tabs, Firefox will ignore this option and will open a new window from a link if the page author specified that the new window should have a specific size, because some pages can only be displayed correctly at a specific size.<<<

Thank you in advance for any help, yeto

How do I avoid the proxy credentials popup?

Lately, the proxy authentication dialog keeps popping up every now and then. This is incredibly annoying: even though my credentials are remembered, I still have to click OK, sometimes a few times before I can proceed viewing the website. Sometime the dialog from a website on a different (background) tab pops up and disturbs me while viewing another website.

My setup is as follows: Currently, I'm using Firefox 31.0 on openSUSE 13.1 I have a cntlm proxy set up and set as my system's proxy (http_proxy and KDE's proxy settings) at http://localhost:3128 which works correctly in other applications. I tried using two settings in FF: 'Use system proxy settings' and 'Manual proxy configuration'. I tried both, checking and unchecking 'Do not prompt for authentication if password is saved' I tried a suggestion from the web, setting signon.autologin.proxy to true. I tried some proxy addon which promised to solve the issue.

None of these worked in preventing that incredibly annoying proxy authentication dialog from poppin g up (although, at times it *seemed* that I didn't get if for a longer time (that was after making the about:config modification mentioned above)).

I remember times on this machine when that did not happen, but I can't remember what I've changed that it's broken now (probably it was some FF update?).

Please, help me! I'm lost and it makes my FF very uncomfortable to use. I need some suggestions on how to configure FF in a way that *should* work, i.e. which combinations of the settings I mentioned above, or other ones I haven't considered yet.

Howdy,

I run a Private Certificate Authority for my personal use and just to learn about SSL Certs. However, with the current build of FireFox I'm on ( 31 ) I can no longer visit sites I've secured with SSL Certs signed by this certificate authority, even though these SSL certs work just perfectly fine in Chrome and Internet Explorer. I keep getting a "sec_error_inadequate_cert_type" error. I can only assume that the certs I've been issuing are incorrect in some way, but the error is so vague and the error page doesn't specify more.

I only discovered this when I realized some of my SSL certs had expired, and I went to re-issue them.

One of the certs that hasn't expired yet but is experiencing problems can be found here:

One of the Certs I've tried re-issuing, matching fields included as closely as I can to a Google SSL cert that I looked up is here:

These certificates were generated using the application called SimpleAuthority, found here: http://simpleauthority.com/

A Site like Networking4All.com seems to believe the Certs are valid, excepting the CA that is Self Signed: http://www.networking4all.com/en/support/tools/site+check/report/?fqdn=phpmyadmin.endofevolution.com&protocol=https

Interestingly enough, using a different site like SSLShopper shows an error similar to FF31: http://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=https://phpmyadmin.endofevolution.com

The certs are running on an Apache Web server: Apache/2.2.21 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.2.21 OpenSSL/1.0.0e PHP/5.3.10

The CA Cert is in FireFox's store as trusted.

If needed, I can provide certs.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox (31.0) on Windows 8.1 Pro. I wanted to imitate OS X way of scrolling in the browser window called "natural" scrolling. I edited the registry setting for my logitech mouse and the scrolling works perfectly the way I wanted in every single window on my system with only one exception, Firefox browser. Somehow Firefox is set to use old way of scrolling and doesn't respect the windows registry settings, like every other window. Is there a way to change or reverse scrolling direction?

thank you Roman

WIN XP. Have checked file association settings and pdf files are directed towards using Adobe reader. Completed uninstall of FFox31 and icons changed back to Adobe. Cleaned computer and carried out clean install. Icons remained as pdf for two restarts and then changed back to FFox icons. Everything works normally but the icons remain as FFox. Have set FFox application options to 'always ask' temporarily. I have a second WinXP machine that has upgraded to FFox 31 without this problem. Strange!
