I am a new developer and I'm trying to learn how cookies work, but I don't know how to view what the actual cookie value is, so that I can check if I did it correctly. I see where you can set the defaults you want and enable or disable cookies, but where can you view the content in FireFox browser? I know in Google Chrome you can see all the cookies and their values in settings, content, cookies, view all. Thanx, Gil

Apparently pushed the wrong "Download" button. Now instead of my homepage (which I have reset), when I open Firefox the "search.conduit.com" page opens. I used the "about:config" procedure several times but it didn't work. There is nothing listed on "add/remove" that is related. Also scanned with Ad-aware, Super AntiSpyware and Norton 360. How do I clean search.conduit out of my browser?

As stated in question, I've recently started getting the message "SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG" when attempting to access various website intermittently. Sometimes reloading the page fixes it. Sometimes it doesn't. Error is only occurring in Firefox, not other browsers.

Hi,

Where does Mozilla Firefox saves the files from add-ons? Don't know if it is from Windows update or from Firefox update, but my add-ons settings keeps on resetting and I lose a lot of data from them because of that. And if I know where Firefox saves those files, then I can make a backup for them.

There were a couple of posts asking the same thing I am, but no answers to either of the. You used to have that Theme and Font Size Changer but I hear that is not very useful anymore. Is there any other way to increase the text on tool bars and menus? It's just way too small. Text on web pages is fine but I can't hardly read the tool bars and menus unless I really squint. Why would you want to make it so terribly small with no way to adjust it?

How to place the "add a new tab" button directly to the right of the last tab?

In Firefox 19.0.2, and in Firefox 20beta4, I have an issue that my "add a new tab" button keeps disappearing when I customize toolbars.

No problem, I can just do a customize, find the new tab button, and drop it right next to the last tab, right? Wrong. It doesn't allow you to drop it there, only all the way to the right.

This leads to a situation where the "+" appears when I am customizing toolbars, but is not visible once I finish customizing.

I can restore it by doing "restore default set." But then I have to start over on my customizations.

When it is all the way to the right, it is supposed to pin to the right of the last tab, right? But dropping it there creates a situation where the "+" simply doesn't appear in the regular interface.

Again, "restore default set" fixes the issue, but how can you drop it next to the last tab, or have it not disappear if you drop it all the way to the right of the tabs?

Was infested with Babylon so I was really ticked off wrote a nasty note to the makers of this software.. They sent me this response.. And yes I did try a number of things before I did the following

For Firefox: Write in the adress line "about:config" and enter. Confirm the message. Look for "Babylon". Right-click the entries and click "Reset".

Nothing worked till I did this.. I went tru and reset every item in the list.. and now no longer have to deal with it redirecting me. I did try removing the program from the program list, I did remove all from my registry, I did remove from my search engine list.. nothing worked until I got this information from the manufacturer of this software with a giant apology

Thank you for taking the time to write us.

Please accept my apology for any inconvenience.

In order to uninstall Babylon and all its features completely, follow the 4 steps below : 1) Uninstall Babylon Software: http://support.babylon.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/177/0/uninstall-babylon-software

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

Since I updated to 77.0.1 firefox has for unknown reason has concluded that there is a system administrator which has disabled updates. It says so in setting (topleft) and in about firefox (instead of update button). I have been able to change all other settings that I know of. I have also refreshed the browser once, disabled all addons once, and deinstalled it to reinstall the latest version once.

Is there a solution for this bug?

Hi all,

I've been having problems with firefox lagging constantly. General browsing around feels laggy - and opening new tabs pretty much causes my computer to freeze for a few seconds. During this time firefox causes the CPU to spike to 100% usage.

I've been using firefox for years on this computer with no issues. Hardware is pretty good (i7 5820k, 64GB of ram and an SSD).

So far I have tried:

  • Running in safe mode
  • Using a different profile
  • Downgrading to an older firefox
  • Changing allowed CPU cores from 8, to 4
  • Updated graphic card drivers to latest version

None of these work, and I'm getting a bit tired of the constant slow downs. Chrome works flawlessly, as does all my other software...

Any ideas?

Thanks!
