For the past couple of days Firefox always redirects to a blank page when I try to visit any page on www.kongregate.com. When I use IE tab on the blank page it comes up with the url "wyciwyg://#/www.kongregate.com" where # is a number that changes occasionally. I've tried deleting my Firefox cache and uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox with no success. Kongregate.com is the only site I know this to happen on and this is the first time I've seen it do this before. It was fine two days ago and I haven't installed a new add on in months.

When I use Internet Explorer and I right click when I am on any website, there is a Create Shortcut option for putting that website onto my desktop.

When I use Firefox and I right click when I am on any website, there is no such option.

I want to know how to insert that option into Firefox for right clicking for myself.

I downloaded some extensions that you have to open to use. The problem is that I can't figure out how to open them. They are not on/can't be put on the toolbar, are not in the "tools" tab, the only way I even know they are on my computer is by going to Tools > Addons > Extensions, and I can't even open them from there.

This happened

Not sure how often

== I downloaded the extensions/add-ons

I have two profiles for firefox. But sometimes Firefox starts with the first active, sometimes with the second. The question is: How can I force firefox to use the profile "default" as the default profile on startup when there is no other instance running? When I want to use a second profile in parallel I use the command "firefox -P --no-profile" to start the profile selector.

My computer was attacked by malware and could not boot. Tried upgrading Windows XP but can't because it needs a working Windows install. Can't re-install because there is not enough space on the HDD. So I replaced the drive and got Windows 7 working on it.

Now the Firefox question: how do I get my bookmarks on the old drive into my new one? I can access my files on the old drive by putting in in an external HD enclosure. But i don't know where to look for my bookmarks database folder so that I could move it to my new drive.

Any help is greatly appreciated as I have years of bookmarks in the old drive.

Thanks Paul

I have an Intel Mac using OS 10.5.8, and Firefox v3.5.17. It works fine and I do not want to change as I like Firefox "exactly" the way it is! That said, I will be forced to update soon I'm very afraid. In looking at and trying to update to the latest version, many conflicts have come up. The update consistently brings me to the wrong version for my OS. So, what version will be the latest that will absolutely work for OS 10.5.8? WHY do I find that 4.0X is best then, 16.0!! is the correct one?

   Why are the versions so vastly separated??  
   Nothing makes sense. Please help before I convert to Chrome permanently! 

Thank you.

Server Error in '/' Application. Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off". Why is this saying this and how do I fix it so i can see the site I want to see. It has let me see the site I want before...just did this today.

I would like to export a folder (one folder only) of web page bookmarks so that friends can import it and have instant access to my recommended web pages.

I know I can export the whole bookmarks file as an HTML file, and I can edit that in notepad but I don't know how to save it back to a Mozilla bookmarks HTML file so that a friend can import it and find one new folder on his/her regular bookmarks folder - with all my helpful wep page bookmarks lined up neatly inside. 

I also know I can edit down my bookmarks to just that one folder then export that - but I'm afraid of losing all my other precious bookmarks in the process.
