Hi,

I want to auto save all my passwords without clicking on the prompt. I am reading there is a way to do that, although its called a "hack" so I am not sure how good it is.

Allegedly I need to make changes to a file called nsloginmanagerprompter.js. But I run a mac and I cannot see this file in my components folder. I run Firefox 5. (Upgrading it results is webmaster tools etc no longer working, which is why I am on an older version still)

Can you advise if I am doing the right thing by trying to do this with a "hack"? Sounds a bit dodgy. And if is ok to do it that way, why cannot I find this file?

Are you able to clarify?

I've spent over 2 hours trying to get this to happen. Add-ons didn't work with 13.0.1. My config list wasn't the same as the one in the forum that suggested a change. I read that 14.0.1 was supposed to make it possible--did it? The tabs page in tools/options looks the same, and the default is blank page. After seeing so many people writing about the same thing, it's hard to believe that the Foxfire folks find this such a challenge.

Nonetheless, can anyone help?

Thanks

The tab 'Search Here' appears to be a permanent resident on the tab bar. HATE IT!!! I want to get rid of it. It goes to mysearchresults.com. I went there and ask them how to remove it. They gave me these directions:

Go to Tools --> Add-ons Highlight Default Tab and click the Options button Clear the check box next to "Show search on new tabs"

If on goes to Tools --> Add-ons, there is no tab that says Default. All there is are selections one can make down the left side reading:

Get Add-ons Extenstions Appearence Plung-ins Available Updates

I am using Firefox 16.0.1 and these instructions don't seem to apply to this version. I need a little hand-holding. Can someone give me clearer, step-by-step instructions on how to uninstall this puppy?

Thanks

How to permanently remove Bing fron the Web Search bar

Every time I load Firefox Bing is the default search engine in the Web Search bar. I can remove it from the list and put Google at the top but when I reopen Firefox Bing is back on top. I have tried to about:config tactics that others have used but I believe that only affect the address bar, not the Web Search bar because it hasn't worked for me. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it to no avail. All of this started after I installed Windows Live Photo Gallery. The investigation I have done so far suggests it is a registry hack. Thanks in advance for any help. I have attached a screenshot of the exact problem so there is no confusion as to what search bar I am talking about: http://i.imgur.com/K0Mqs.png

I have a new machine with a new install of Ubuntu 12.04. In Firefox the menu bar is missing. I have the black border with 3 buttons in the left and the current page title. I also have a tabs bar and toolbars. I've looked in the forum/help and tried the suggestions there, here's what happened:

If I right-click the tab bar, the only toolbars shown in the drop-down menu are Navigation, Bookmarks and Add-ons, so I can't show the menu bar that way.

I don't have a Firefox button.

I've tried creating a new toolbar and moving all buttons except the address field and google search across in case it was a lack of space on the toolbar but that didn't help.

I can't reset the profile as I don't have a help menu.

I've re-installed Firefox and there was no change.

Does anyone have other suggestions please?
