Im trying to manually import some add-ons into firefox: i have an off-line computer i use for development, i cant add any add-ons from the firfox site to this computer as it is off-line, so i use FEBE environment back up to export the add-ons from this on-line machine, and take them over to the off-line computer on a drive. I have tried dropping the xpi files into the plugins folder and restarting firefox, but no luck.

Anybody have any suggestions? Is there a way of telling firefox to look locally for add-ons? Rather than it looking to the firefox site?

Have searched a bit but found nothing.

Zoom is driving me nuts! I use multiple tabs and windows, and to maximize screen space I need to make some pages very small. In IE each window can be zoomed independently- but with firefox they all change if you change any window's zoom. I've tried NoSquint add-on and it adds site-specific zoom, which is still not what I need. Surely there's an add-on that allows each window to have its own zoom level.

Every time I click to open Firefox, I am prompted by Windows User Account Control asking if I want to allow the program to make changes to my hard drive. I just want to be able to open the internet without having to confirm this every time!

== I'm not entirely sure. It may have been when my computer downloaded the newest version of firefox.

Hi, This has always been an issue with FF. I share my PC. My partner has a Master Password. I do not. However every time I use Firefox I am asked for the master password, and this is repeated (over and over) every time I open a tab for a site on which he has a password set. I have my own accounts and know my passwords. I do not want a Master Password and do not want to access his accounts. How can I cancel the MP request and simply use firefox withouth being face with that annoying MP pop-up every few minutes!! Its driving me nuts. Please save me. Thanks

Before I start Fire Fox I open the Task Manager to make sure no other copies of Fire Fox are running. When I click on the short cut there is a pause of about 1 second then this message appears. "The update could not be installed. Please make sure there are no other copies of Firefox running on your computer, and then restart Firefox to try again." I checked your FAQs where this problem showed up many times. I saw not solutions there. Where can I go to get an answer other than the usual remarks. Of course Fire Fox starts up immediately after the error message.

I've posted there and no replies..

Could firefox be stopping it from working?

Hulu has always worked fine before.

Thanks.
