I would like to be able to completely refresh all scripts, images and code (absolutely everything on the page) when I click refresh for a tab. I am a web designer and firefox often serves up old content, regardless of whether I manually empty the cache or click refresh multiple times on a page. I tried some chanegs in the config file too which I saw for earlier versions of firefox but they don't seem to have helped. Any suggestions similar to cmd-shift-r that force a complete refresh of a page would be very much appreciated. Even if there is a way to turn caching off completely so that surfing the web was slower that would be preferable to be able to test site updates correctly. I use firebug so if there is an option in there for forcing full refresh of pages that could also help. I am using the most current version of firefox (43.0.4). Thanks

Just prior to this had been reading email online. Saw email of strange origins, sent to spam, and then opened the email, being careful to not click on any links. Looked like email from which I'd not be clicking any links, so emptied spam folder. Do not remember from whence the email was sent. Something like Trump stop Hillary. Since I have no idea why I'd receive anything from Trump, I'm just a bit more suspicious there is a link.

Maybe this is connected, maybe not.

Regardless, using the long unused Opera browser, was able to access Fox News.

Checked out other sites. www.cnn.com okay

Then tried out a couple of sociologically related to Fox News sites, i.e., Amazon and Walmart. No problem with Amazon. Problems with dead links within Walmart.

I found a solution to my problem, but I just wanted to make the problem/solution available to all FireFox users ... Doing "Microsoft Print to PDF" I was getting "a error occurred while printing". This error also occurred trying to do "Microsoft XPS Document Writer". Using "Process Monitor" (from Sysinternals) found "access denied" entry. This occurred even though I had total security access and ownership too. I had been using a non-default "tmp" user environment variable. I set "tmp" back to the default and the problem went away. The problem was not occurring in the other browsers IE, Edge, or Chrome. Also, reinstalling FireFox did not solve the problem since the "tmp" variable was not affected by the reinstall.

Upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 went fine, but I notice that the Roboform toolbar is missing in Firefox in my wife's Standard User local account (but it IS there in IE11). The toolbar shows up as normal in both browsers in my Admistrative local user account. In Firefox, clicking on View/Toolbars does not show Roboform as an option. I've tried uninstalling Roboform and re-installing the most recent version but the same thing occurs.

Can anyone provide a solution to get the toolbar to show up?

I found the fix for this and want to share, as it's really annoying. CWTV worked fine with IE11 or Chrome with the AdBlock Plus filters @@||cwtv.com^$document @@||cwtv.com^$elemhide and @@||partner.googleadservices.com/gpt/pubads_impl_*.jsdomain=cwtv.com but failed with Firefox. Using the F12 console, I saw that my request to watch a show was being rejected because "do not track" was enabled. I knew this wasn't right, so I checked FF options, and sure enough, it was not checked. I then used configuration mania to look at the Security/Privacy section, and "Enable Tracking Protection" showed being checked there. I unchecked it and hit Ctrl F5 in the CWTV window and BAZAAM! Episode started playing. I spent a few hours poking around until I found this, but it's worth it not to have to switch browsers to stream CWTV.

My understanding of how web pages work is that the web page name (URL) is translated to an IP address. So, can I find out what that address is for a web page which I have open? The reason for my interest is that when I type www.streamhunter.eu my Firefox browser comes back with Batmanstream.com or something like that. I want to know if this is the real streamhunter or a pirated web page. So, what IP address is Batmanstream using? I don't know. Oh, I am using Ubuntu 15.10 and Firefox 43.04.

So this has been bugging me for weeks.

I keep having Firefox crash on me every single day, usually in the morning everything runs smooth and there's no problem, at night if I have a full screen YouTube video with just the Reddit homepage in another tab, it crashes constantly, sometimes I can't get further than 5 minutes watching without it crashing.

It's worth noting I'm having constant 'display driver has crashed' errors as well when gaming but for the most part I THINK they're unrelated to why Firefox is crashing, I'm not 100% certain. Aside from that I haven't had any slowness or bugs, but I have had the odd graphical glitch in my browser where it comes up in black blocks but it doesn't happen often.

I've refreshed my browser and the whole delete-reinstall phase, no dice. Even tried disabling all my addons, nothing.

Happy to provide any further help if I can.

Ok a couple of days ago I had to do a refresh on firefox has I was getting very slow speeds with a lot of sites, which actually fixed the problem but now iv got a bigger problem that is now firefox will NEVER remember none of my passwords, and I don't even get the box asking would I like to save passwords.

Iv check all the settings ie Private browsing is set to off / Remember log in sites is checked, made sure that clear settings was all turned off when shutting off FireFox ect ect, and even when i open up the saved logins tab the box is blank, tried to import saved passwords from MS + Chrome ( not at the same time ) it tells me that its done but still nothing shows up and still doesn't remember any passwords when logging in to sites.

I don't have any other password mangers on my system so there is no conflicts at all, everything was working fine apart from slow surfing before I done this refresh

Recently, I enabled getting desktop notifications when my opponents in Words with Friends made a move. I would really like to disable these notifications. I have no idea where to do that.

But I can't seem to find the place to disable these banner notifications that pop up in the upper right corner of my screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
