Hello

I want to configure firefox 14.0.1 with default settings for all my users using a file mozilla.cfg But the command defaultPref () is not valid. I use pref () but then the user can not change the parameters

With Thunderbird 14.0, I have no problem, the command defautPref () can be used

Why?

Thank you

Ever since I updated to 14.0.1 I have been having problems with this. As of right now, even this website is currently being forced https. My friend is also having the exact same problem as me, so it isn't just a single problem here. (However it could be two)

Can anyone help me here? Happens on pretty much all websites, cannot put just one site.

OK, I had to reinstall Firefox, and now, every time I try searching off URL bar, Bing comes as default search engine. I have read this: Bing is added to the search engines that you can use for searching via the search bar on the Navigation Toolbar. If Bing is selected then you can choose another search engine by clicking the search engines icon. Open Manage Search Engines and click "Restore defaults" is some are missing or do a search on the Mycroft site.

See also:

   Removing the Search Helper Extension and Bing Bar 

You can open the about:config page via the location bar and do a search for bing via the Filter at the top of that page. You can reset all bing related prefs via the right-click context menu to their default values.

I have removed Bing from search engines list. 5 times. Clicking "restore defaults" actually brings Bing back into list. I have modified Bing to Google via "about:config". Same difference - Bing stubbornly defaults as search engine when searching from URL bar.

Suggestions?

I am using Mac OS X Version 10.7.4. I am also running Firefox version 14.0.1. I am prompted to update to version 15, but when trying to update, the updating window hangs up for hours and never gets past "connecting to server." I have tried to install version 15 and trash my last version however I get another pop-up box that states something like "cannot complete due to some items being skipped." I followed the directions to troubleshoot (File > Get Info, then make sure all items are unlocked) but this still doesn't solve my problem. Can anyone offer some advice? Please?

OK. I really liked the new-tab page Firefox came up with, then my brother downloaded Yahoo crap and I uninstalled it. The problem I have is that whenever I open a new tab, it still opens a yahoo search page. I looked everywhere online for information to get my new-tab page back, but all I found was how to get rid of it.

I'm not a computer person, so when they say 'open Firefox and type ___________.' I have no idea what they are talking about. To top it off, there is no little box in the upper right corner to click like all the help sites say. It's just a regular yahoo search page, and it's driving me nuts. I've looked about the web all day off and on for this. At this point, I'd be happy with figuring out how to get a blank page, but I don't know how to get to where I'm suppose to type 'about:blank' to do it.

I tried uninstalling Firefox and then installing it again too, thinking that it might reset things. It didn't. I still see yahoo. I hope you can help. I really miss my new-tab page.

Hi. I'm using Firefox 14.0.1, and recently developed an issue that is extremely frustrating. Two particular websites which I visit often are behaving irregularly. In the first case, on Facebook, when I login and my main page loads, the icons in the top left (friends, messages, and notifications) are not "clickable," that is to say that clicking on them no longer brings up the windowpane that corresponds with them. On another website, Battlelog.com, certain images do not load and instead are replaced with oversized text. I have tried clearing my cache and history in Firefox, turning on and off extensions one by one, running in safe mode, etc. but none of these solutions have helped.

I finally tried running Firefox in private browsing mode. These websites now work perfectly. I cannot explain it, as the URLs for each are identical. If there is anyone who could offer advice on settings or changes I could make so that Firefox will work properly with these sites in default browsing mode, it would be most greatly appreciated.

After upgrading Firefox to version 14.0.1 i noticed when i typed in my company's website address that firefox went to the https:// version of the site when it never did that before.

Example, if you type in amazon.com in the URL bar, you briefly see that firefox turns the url to https://www.amazon.com before being auto directed to the normal www.amazon.com site.

My website did not have a secure index page and people were getting a server generated message until I found this issue out.

Is there a setting in Firefox to prevent the URL bar from selecting a secure connection first? This behavior does not occur in the most recent versions of I.E. or Chrome browsers on a desktop.

Any help would be greatly apprecaited

Nonetheless, I am finding the pc system in general extremely unintuitive in this matter which should be quite simple. I want to return to bing as my default browser after ask.com installed itself when I inadvertently used it to search for something. Help! Mercury retrograde proves that Murphy was right!

Hey there, I just found out that you can make the full path of plugins visible in about:config, this is helpful to get rid of some annoying plugins I don't want or need. Now I wonder, if there also is a way to enable this for extensions? I know the "good" extensions install themselves in the profile folder, but the sinister ones (that I didn't want installed in the first way) are not located there. One of the extensions would be "Browsing Protection 1.10". I know i can disable it, but I want it deleted, no idea where to find the correct files though.

Currently using FF 14 (release channel) with Flash Player 11 (updated today, 7/21/12). Flash objects, such as Facebook games, run slow/choppy to the point where it looks like a collection of tiles updating over the course of a few seconds. I have deleted temp files, compacted databases, uninstalled and reinstalled FF, updated display drivers, ran the flash objects in full-screen mode, and tested the same flash objects in other browsers. Running in full-screen mode alleviates the slowness, but there is a delay when loading content that is normally not noticed when viewing on a normal page; however, the action plays as it should. Viewing the flash content from other browsers, such as IE, allows the content to play fluidly as it should. Flash hardware acceleration (Settings) toggle does not seem to alter performance, and the Global Settings are allowing websites to store sufficient data. Rebooting also does not resolve the issue.

The PC in question is running Win 7 32bit; 2 GB RAM; Dual Core 1.8 GHz processor; ATI Radeon HD 2400 graphics @ 1280x1024 resolution.

Task Manager shows that the Flash Player uses up to 60% of the CPU time, Firefox uses less than 15% at peak, and the plugin container typically runs below 10% when viewing the flash object on a page normally. Full-screen viewing of the flash object can have Flash Player take up to 70% of the CPU time, but playback is fluid.
