I don't want my users to save their password on the browser. Is there a way to disable password manager or gray-out the remember password box (without selecting never remembering history option) so that users are not able to save their passwords.

Firefox 48.0 on Ubuntu (Virtual Box guest machine on Windows 7 host). I have searched long and hard all over the net and cannot find anything that works. The js is in shared windows folder, mounted within Ubuntu, as is the whole web app. Generally the app works fine, but if I have to tweak a Java Script, the browser will not use the new file. I have tried:

  • Developer web console is open and "Disable Cache" is checked.
  • ctrl-r
  • ctrl-shift-r
  • ctrl-F5
  • Holding own shift when pressing the browser reload button.
  • Going to Menu|Preferences|Advanced|Network and pressing [Clear Now]

I am using a framework so I cannot add a version/timestamp on the end of the script file name.

The only way I have found that works so far is to shutdown the machine and bring it up again. That takes a long time for a simple script tweak/test to show up. It is wasting a LOT of my time...

Please, is there a faster, easier way to get Firefox to use that new file?

How to completely disable website translation

Hi everybody,

I am fluent in 3 languages : french, english and spanish. I have configured Firefox (Preferences > Content > Languages) with all 3 languages, in that order : French, French (France), English, English (US), Spanish, Spanish (Spain)

Still, I can't prevent a lot of english websites to be automatically (and poorly) translated into french. I could switch language preferences and put english first, but then I would have a lot of french websites automatically (and poorly) translated into english.

I don't need any translation when a website is either in french, english or spanish. No translation at all.

hence, I'd like to completely disable all kind of automatic website translation. Everywhere. All the time. If someday I happen to come across a website that I want to translate, I know many other ways of doing so.

I hope this can be achieved somehow, even if I must tweak some Firefox settings.

Thanks in advance for your support !

Hi,

Recently Firefox has stopped displaying Youtube comments and notifications. Comments stay as "Loading" and the notification box is empty: http://i.imgur.com/nvI3Ap3.png It works fine in Chrome is it is not a problem with Youtube, I have tried refreshing Firefox, and using safemode so I know it is not a problem with a plugin.
