I just updated my FC14 installation. Firefox got kicked back to version 3. I want to install the latest version for all users on this machine. The only option appears to be to download the .tgz file but there are no instructions as to where to copy them, so all users get the update. Where can I find the RPM for the latest release?

HTTPS: This Connection is Untrusted -> click "Add Exception" -> can NOT click "Confirm Security Exception" button

When using FF 19.0.2 on Ubuntu or Win7, to work on lab machines where an invalid self-signed cert has previously been "permanently stored", but has since changed. I (and much of the rest of the internet it would seem) frequently get caught in a catch 22 where an exception must be added to continue, but FF will not permit an exception to be added because "This site provides valid, verified identification. There is no need to add an exception".

I see this reported time & again in forums, but it seems as yet unfixed.

Doesn't seem to be an issue if one is rigorous and _always_ UN-checks "Permanently store this exception". To fix includes contortions through numerous work arounds, including clearing certs (hard, when cert list is full of self-signed localhost certs), history, cache, etc. until FF finally lets you "Confirm Security Exception".

I am at my wits end, and will have to start thinking of alternative browsers for day to day use.

FYI: IE & Chrome both let me confirm the damn exception and move on with my life.

Hi, I am owner of ikultura.net domain. Indeed a few monhs ago it has been attacked and some malware software has been installed in Joomla website. However, I did delete all content and there is only one file there (which is verification file of Google). So, there is no website there, no files and definitely no viruses.

I have reported it to Stopbadwage.org, also to Google and there are no issues from their sides. Also all other browsers like Opera, Chrome/Chromium, Safari or Midtori are showing only information that access is forbidden (it is default information from 1and1 shared servers if there is no content in main domain directory). Web providers which check websites after viruses like urlvoid.com showing no bad results too.

Because Firefox is well known browser, I would like also make visitors happy with no information about attack site. There were only archive of my old online magazine, I still got database, so as soon there will be no bad reports about that domain, I will setup new website, but now I want to keep no files there to make things easier to check by you.

Please let me know what can be done to remove that warning from ikultura.net domain. Thank you in advance.

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?

I recently updated to 20 and my spellcheck context menu has vanished.

What if you aren't even given the check spelling or languages menu option yet the broken red line under mispelled words occurs and no spelling suggestions made when right clicking on those words?

Some additional information:

In my about:config i do have the following in bold: spellchecker.dictionary;en-US user set string en-US

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/HTML/Controlling_spell_checking_in_HTML_forms?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=Controlling_spell_checking_in_HTML_forms

(I want spellechecking EVERYWHERE, how do I implement that?)

Also there is this: http://trac.xinha.org/ticket/1119

I do not have xinha installed but the behavior is similar. I get the lines, but no options.

I need to install an older version of Java on my Redhat 5 Enterprise workstation.

Since Firefox 17.0.5 the installation folder changed from /usr/lib64/mozilla to /usr/lib64/firefox. In the 64 bits version, there is no plugins folder, is that normal?

When I create the missing plugin folder and that I install the java plugin in it, it does not appears in the plugins list.

The 32 bits installation is working though ( /usr/lib/firefox/firefox ).

I made my services account yesterday on Windows, to prepare to move to Linux (first time). I synced all my data (I waited until sync is done), I closed FF and said goodbye to windows. After I installed Linux I wanted to restore my data from services on Firefox (all bookmarks, passwords, plugins, history), but FF was unable to download anything. It said that sync is finished but none of the bookmarks or passwords were downloaded. Is there any history of syncs where I could recover my old profile?

I would like to set proxy settings to all the firefox process for non-root users, Earlier i used to do this by adding below lines in /usr/lib64/firefox/defaults/preferences/channel-perf.js

pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");

and creating mozilla.cfg file in /usr/lib64/firefox directory as followd

lockPref("network.proxy.type", 1); lockPref("network.proxy.http", "127.0.0.1") lockPref("network.proxy.http_port", 3128) lockPref("network.proxy.share_proxy_settings", true)


How do i achieve the same in Firefox-26

I tried the following

In the /usr/lib64/firefox/browser/defaults/preferences directory, i created file channel-pref.js as follows pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0) pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");


create mozilla.cfg file in /usr/lib64/firefox directory , then using moz-byteshift.pl i modified the mozilla.cfg moz-byteshift.pl -s 13 <mozilla.cfg.txt >mozilla.cfg

but it still doesn't work ,

Any information on how to make this work

Certain websites, most prominently product pages on Amazon.com and compose window on Outlook.com, when visited using Firefox seem to be refreshed every second bringing the whole browser to a crawl.

It doesn't happen uniformly. It only happens for a minute or so after the product page is loaded, or when typing in the recipient address in Outlook.

It's as if Firefox was triggering some legacy mode and an element of the page was being refreshed instead of whatever magic JavaScript-y long polling is supposed to be happening.

It's very annoying. I dread visiting Amazon.

This problem has been reported on the web

http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/forums?ie=UTF8&cdForum=Fx2NFGOONPZEXIP&cdThread=Tx1H3I87LXNI5AL (something on that page also keeps being reloaded!)

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/780730

but without satisfying resolution.

I have keyword.URL set to http://www.google.com/search?btnG=Google+Search&q= . This works fine if I enter more than one word in the address bar, like "Hello Goodbye." If I enter a SINGLE (non-url) word, however, I get sent to a website called website-unavailable.com, which I do not want. Why is keyword.URL not working correctly? Using Firefox 17 for linux.
