Firefox does not display IDN.com properly. The pretext is that someone could trick English-speakers into visiting similar-looking addresses.

That most of the world speaks other languages, or that foreign sites would like to appeal to users in majority-English countries without having their addresses deformed, is of secondary importance.

But now comes the news of major new security structures. Mozilla now has no excuse and should provide IDN.com support.

So some virus-infected "article" comes up and, stupidly, I open it. O.K., whatever. My SpyBot thing has kicked-in and now most of the crashing has stopped. BUT, I still get annoying pop-ups and my Homepage keeps getting changed to "Startup" and I have to constantly change it back (to Yahoo). It *seems* that a simple, very very simple, "site block" -- tailored to keep this or that annoying, spammish site -- tool could/should be available. But either it's not, or the application/tool is buried so deep in all the other bells and whistles of All Things Firefox, that this simple and obvious tool can't be found.

What's with this???

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10. I installed the Spanish (spain) dictionary for OpenOffice using "sudo apt-get install myspell-es" which also invaded firefox and suddenly my right click > languages menu for spell checking is loaded to the nuts with choices of dictionaries for every kind of spanish from cuban to venezuelan.

Moreover, English US and English UK both appear twice. I ran "sudo apt-get remove myspell-es" and the spanish dicts. disappeared, which is good, but how do I remove the redundant australian english, us english, and uk english dictionaries from the right click firefox menu because right now there are 2 of each of those?


This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I ran sudo apt-get install myspell-es

When I open firefox in Linux, it looks strange. The back, forward, and all those buttons are grey so I cannot click them. None of my bookmarks appear. And when I go to a website like Gmail to sign in, I can fill in my information, but I cannot click the sign in button. I tried erasing the .parentlock file and restarting everything. I also tried clearing the cache. I also moved the sessionstore.js file out of the folder. It seems like it was last modified the last time Firefox ran normally.

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.

Some websites get substituted with a spam site. These sites claim they are checking your computer for viruses. In reality if you click on the pop-up window you install malware. The only way out is to go to the OS and use the task manager to kill Firefox. The next time you try to use Firefox it automatically tries to reload the last pages visited including the malware page. How do I disable the attempt to reload the web pages? If this function is not available it needs to be added to the Firefox program.

I want to run the stripped version of firefox in background with one application and another full version of firefox for normal browsing. I have created the profile for the stripped version of firefox and loading the same using command firefox -P "stripped" -no-remote/firefox -no-remote -P "stripped". But when I start the full version of firefox by launcher "firefox" than it directly loads the stripped version even used the -no-remote option with profile. So I have created launcher for firefox and used the -no-remote with default profile like "firefox -no-remote". It works when first time I click on launcher but for second click it shows the message "Firefox instance is running, or not responding. close the firefox and restart the system". I have gone through the online available documents that suggests that use the -no-remote option with profile so the default profiles works correctly. But -no-remote option doesn't work with the profile. So is there any way to launch the full version of firefox by launcher on second click on launcher?
