How to change default class name of the Firefox Window Class from "MozillaWindowClass" to other for example "DMoz"? Which option of about:cofig? Possibility of changing it shall prevent part of attacks for example closing all Firefox windows.

This option was present in older versions but this setting was hidden or removed. It was used by me but I can't remember its name.

Somewhere along the way, I suppose I removed the "stacked bars" open menu button from the toolbar. I'd like to put it back, but when I open the Customize panel, there is only one available in there, labeled "Firefox." When I put that one onto the toolbar and click it, it does nothing--does not open the menu.

What are the steps to get the true menu button back onto the toolbar?

Will the Java plugin continue to work in Firefox ESR 38 and 45 beyond January 2017?

The blog post in:

   https://blog.mozilla.org/futurereleases/2015/10/08/npapi-plugins-in-firefox/ 

states that the Java plugin will cease to be supported in *all* versions of Firefox after Jan 2017. It seems unlikely that this will apply to pre-existing ESRs but our users are worried they won't be able to use Oracle EBS (which depends on the Java plugin) as from 2017. We need some statement to reassure them that they will continue to be able to use Firefox 38 or 45 past that date while we look at alternative options.

control++, control+-, and control+0 all work as expected, but if I'm not quick enough to let go of the control key, or if I just press the control key all alone, the web page I'm on (including graphics) or the email body I'm looking at in Thunderbird just get larger and larger. The problem seems to be limited to Mozilla as the other browsers, Word, etc. don't exhibit this behavior.

I have no idea what combination of keystrokes caused this! I have rebooted.

This happened from a cat walking on my keyboard so it's not quite as simple as pressing each button that I pressed to find out how to undo this. My primary internet browsing experience is on a laptop with a nasty little touchpad and I've been getting by on the arrows and page up/down till now. With the blinking "you are here" marker on the internet page I get to see either the top or bottom of the page unless I get to fiddling around with the touchpad and the scrolling bit on the side of the browser.

On my browser window I have my "bookmarks toolbar" - that's OK, I want it there. But right underneath that is a spot that looks like two more bookmarks - WebEx and Share Browser. I do NOT want those, and can't find how to get rid of them. There is no line separating them from the <desired> bookmarks. If they are plugins, I want to UNplug them.

My computer got infected by a lot of Ad-ware, etc. when I tried to update java. I thought I got it all cleared out. I have uninstalled Firefox and went through Regedit and deleted any Mozilla items and then reinstalled Firefox. When I have a FF browser open and try to select FF Options or Add-ons from the Open menu, I get a new browser window that uses a URL of search.safefinder.com/?st=dd&q=. How do I get Options and Add-ons to work properly?

Hi,

After logging out of my account on Amazon today I went to log in again and couldn't. I tried resetting my password multiple times, only to get stuck in a loop of endless captchas. I called customer service twice and tried restarting my computer. I was told by customer service to contact FF since I could log in with no difficulty in Chrome.

Any ideas how to fix?

Thanks

I'm using Windows 10 and have installed FIrefox. I went to the default programs in Windows 10 to set Firefox as my default web browser but it won't.

I checked the default program for file types and it shows that there are two file types that Edge still opens. I tried to change them to Firefox, when I choose Firefox it goes by to Edge.

How can I fix this?

Can't download Firefox Add-ons manually with 'Save Link as...' because "Firefox prevented this site () from asking you to install software on your computer"

Hi Guys,

since Firefox Version 38.0 (ESR) it is not possible to download Firefox Add-ons manually ( ...from the site addons.mozilla.org (!) ) with 'Save Link as...' (...from the Right-Click Context-Menu).

All of the Add-Ons for Firefox (signed or un-signed) have a size of '0 kb' after trying to 'Save Link as...' to a local directory. If I'm choosing there (...in the 'Mozilla Add-On Store') a Thunderbird Add-On everything works fine with the 'Save as...'-alternative.

I have tested this with all of the ESR versions 38.0 to 38.6.1 and also with the new 'public' version 44.0.2 (= no ESR), ...also with new and clean Profiles. Everywhere the same effect. 31.8 ESR is the last one where I can download and save Add-Ons with 'Save Link as...' to a local directory.

(I know that it is possible to choose the Button '+Add to Firefox' with Left-Click. In this case the Add-On Download starts without any problems promptly ...and the installation process starts directly.)

Is there a Pref available which I can set in the about:config page or another option to download Add-On files manually?
