I have setup 2 profiles, 1 for work and 1 for private at home and I have this issue when clicking on links outside firefox as for example apps like MS outlook and shortcuts and such firefox profile manager pops up and ask me to chose a profile to show the link in, and I cannot chose the already running profile but must then chose the work profile if Im currently using "private".

So my question is how do I force FF from stop asking which profile to open an external link in and set the default profile?

I've been away for a couple of weeks and logging on to Firefox 24.0 clumps of text immediately appeared blurred. They mostly clear when the cursor is hovered over them or they're highlighted. I understand this may be something called font rendering and it may have started happening after some Windows Updates automatically. The problem doesn't occur on IE8 or in any offline work. Thanks.

I tried the suggestions posted and nothing works. I have tried going to the mozilla extensions page but there is no "remove" button for sweetpacks.

I have also tried "about:config" but when I make the change to have a different homepage (google), the change is not saved, it goes back to sweetpacks.

Again, nothing seems to work even though i removed all the sweetpacks stuff via control panel/remove programs - sweetpacks keeps coming up as my homepage.

I have been unable to have audio on You tube videos on firefox for the past several days--I do have the audio if the video is from a source other than you tube on Firefox. I am able to get you tube audio on Outlook and Google so I feel this is a "Firefox" problem and not my computer. This is also occuring on both my desk top and my laptop computer. There is an X by the volume button on the You tube video, but it won't let me get rid of the X and turn the audio on.

When I go to Yahoo Mail I usually can just click the User ID area and the ID and Password information will load as Firefox has that information already saved. That function has stopped with the update to Firefox 24. The user ID and Password information are still saved in FireFox.

What does happen is that if I go to tools/Options/ Security menu and then close it and then try to load the Yahoo mail and click the form it does the auto complete. If I navigate away from that page and go back the information will not load unless I open the Options menu again.

This update seems to have broken the auto complete function.

Running Maverick OSX from apple. I can't download any attachments from my email. I get the following message: /rMlzoyru.tiff.part could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents of that folder.

Change the folder properties and try again, or try saving in a different location.

Not sure how to change folder properties.

I am trying to set up a Jenkins build server that uses SeleniumHQ and Firefox ESR during integration tests.

I have installed Firefox ESR 24 and seleniumHq 2.42.2

I have found that the Firefox profile/state is getting corrupted when the selenium code exits.

This prevents the selenium FirefoxDriver from establishing a control connection because firefox is blocked on Firefox's 'last time I crashed - what do you want to do? Start fresh or attempt to recover?' screen.

What I would like to do is ensure that I always start clean with a pure factory-default Firefox configuration at the start of each run.

i.e., a "Reset to factory defaults" configuration.

This should be OK because the Jenkins account is only used for this build process.

Unfortunately, there is no documentation on how/what to blow away in order to accomplish this.

What do I need to do to accomplish this? I see that there is a ~/.cache/mozilla directory, but that doesn't seem to be the magic location that I seek... .

In Firefox 24.0, I visit a website and enter username/password. Popup asks if I want to remember the password. I select Never Remember Password for this Site. I logout and log back-in. After entering username/password, I'm asked again if I want to Remember Password.

Privacy tab: Always use private browsing mode is unchecked

Security tab: when I click Exceptions, there is nothing showing in the popup window

How do I get FF to add the website to the exceptions list so it will stop asking if I want to Remember Password everytime I visit the site?

I use Delicious Bookmarks 2.3.4 for synchronizing bookmarks and their keywords on different computers. After updating to Firefox 25 the keywords are no longer recognized. If I enter a keyword like "foo" it doesn't send me to the bookmark with the keyword but starts a google search for "foo". When I downgrade to Firefox 24 it works again.

Was this change introduced by purpose (like the keyword search removal in FF 23) or is this only some side effect?

Is there any way to get rid of this problem and have that feature again?

I've searched the Firefox Help section and have followed all suggestions for clearing histories, etc. Yet when I open the Firefox browser and type: www.a into the address bar, it automatically fills-in www.amazon.com. Where is this info held, and how can I keep Firefox from 'suggesting' Web destinations when I (or someone else) types-in just the start of an often-used address? In addition to asking Firefox to forget histories, I regularly run Ccleaner as well, which has always worked to solve this situation with Internet Expolorer, yet Firefox insists in linking the letter 'a' to amazon.com. Help! ...and thanks.
