How can I see / change the smtp ports in use by FF 12.0 on my WIN2K antique?

My webmail account works, though slowly, when I'm using NetScape 7.1. When I try to use the same program and service with FireFox 12.0, I can receive email, but sending email gets me an error message that's something like "Could not establish an SMTP commection with the server." The service tells me that my outgoing smtp port should be 465 if I'm using SSL, and 25 if I'm not using SSL. Also, if I'm asked about "authentication," it should be "the same as incoming." Where do I find these settings in FF12.0?

I'm asking this question on another computer, not the one I'm having trouble with. My problem child is an IBM Aptiva running Windows 2000 Version 5.0 (Build 2195; Service Pack 4) Copyright 1981-1999 Microsoft Corp. Physical memory available to Windows: 64,824 KB

Mozilla upgraded to 3.6 and now when it launches it will only launch to the the welcome page thanking me for upgrading. I didn't ask it to upgrade it did it automatically. I go in and set my home page and it will not keep it. I relaunch and it comes up again to the welcome page.

What do I do to fix this?

Firefox will not print at all to my HP PSC 750 printer and loses all formatting when trying to print to Brother HL-5240 printer

I have no problem with either of my printers when printing from either Avant 11.7 or IE 6.0.2800.1106 but can not print from Firefox 3.6.13 (or earlier). When trying to print to the HP PSC 750 inkjet printer, a "Printing" dialog box appears, showing Title: xyz and a progress meter showing 100% but this is being overlaid almost immediately by a second dialog box stating "An unknown error occurred while printing" and, while the printer continues saying "printing", no printing will take place.

When trying to print to the Brother HL-5240 laser printer, printing will occur but all formatting is lost and what comes out is a block of unintelligible running text.

What can/must I do to get Firefox to print correctly to my two printers?

On the Privacy tab in Options the check box for Accept cookies from sites is unchecked. I pressed the Exceptions button and added many websites to accept cookies from and clicked Allow for Session on each one. Sometimes I go to a website where I have to sign in with a username and password and the site states that my browser is refusing to accept cookies even though I had added the site to the exception list. When I check the exception list, the status of the exception has changed from Allow for Session to Blocked. I have found several exceptions change on their own from allow to blocked and some even have changed again after I changed them back. What could be causing the exceptions to change and is there some way to make the settings persistent?

My current version of Firefox has become corrupt. When I try to download a new version with Internet Explorer or my current version of firefox it goes to 53% unpacked and then it comes up with file corrupt. I have had the same issue before and have solved it by using a linux CD to download a windows version and it unpacks and installs great. I now cannot find a place where I can specify which version I want and it insists on using the download for Linux which is useless for me.

I downloaded Firefox and set up my homepage as Yahoo- which is what I used before downloading. Now there is no background color to my page, whereas it was in shades of green before. Also on certain pages there are pictures missing as on the main page- the news items always have a picture- now there are none and certain headings- as on Facebook. If I hover over the area where I know something would normally be, it pops up.

I tried the answers previously given and found the following answers: (1) Create an allow cookie exception (Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: Exceptions) to keep such a cookie, especially for secure websites and if cookies expire when Firefox is closed. (2) Do not use Clear Recent History to clear the "Cookies" and the "Site Preferences". I'm using Firefox 8 beta 4 on a Win 2K system and I can't find a "Cookies: Exceptions" option under "Privacy." I also can't find "clear recent history." If the latter is the default option I need to know what to do to avoid using it.
