I see that there is a keyboard shortcut for switching tabs within a Firefox browser window, but I'd also like one for switching between browser windows. I imagine this is easier on Windows, where each browser window sort of behaves as a separate application, but on the Mac OS an application can own several windows. Thus, the OS doesn't provide support for switching between browser windows via a keyboard shortcut; it can just switch between applications, which brings all of the target application's windows to the front.

I go to the login page for gmail - it doesn't matter how I get there, via bookmark or not - the page always appears with my username and password already filled in. Issues (a) this isn't secure, anyone could sign in as me simply by hitting 'return' (b) other users in the house have to backspace my details away in order to enter their own.

I have tried reinstalling Firefox - no use. How do I get gmail's login page to open with blanks username and password boxes?

thanks in avance for any advice!

How to know which port Firefox is connecting to a website with ?

I've been trying to connect to a FTP server using WinSCP, but the server just won't allow it, despite me having the right login informations and all.

I tryed it on Firefox, and I could connect and see the files just fine. The problem is, Firefox doesn't do uploads and file edits.

My guess is that the problem comes from me selecting the wrong port to connect with on WinSCP.

To test my theory, I wanted to check which port Firefox was using to connect to the server. But I searched in every menu option (I think) but didn't find the info I wanted.

Any ideas on how to find it ?

When I try to enter my user ID & password into certain sites, I get the message: Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. - and 400 Bad Request appears on the tab. This seemed to have begun occurring around the time I disabled most of my plug-ins to troubleshoot another problem I was having. Enabling the plug-ins again did not help this new problem. I've just uninstalled ff, dumped my profile, reinstalled and still have the same problem! Any help out there?

Is there a way I can delete a security exception that I added? I tried to order from a website whose security certificate had expired, and I decided to add the exception on my laptop, and then wasn't able to order from the site anyway. I've not had any problems with my laptop, but I would feel better if I knew the exception had been deleted. I wasn't sure which menu I needed to use to delete it, if it's even possible. I have no idea why I thought adding the exception was a good idea in the first place, because now I'm just paranoid. Thanks!!

EDIT: The operating system on my laptop is Windows 7, if that helps. Thanks again!

(This issue has been ongoing for several versions now. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, and tried safe mode.)

The right click menu, within the menu bar drop down menus, disappears as soon as I move the mouse. Making it impossible to select anything from it.

For example: I click "Bookmarks" in the menu bar and get a drop down window of all my bookmarks. I then mouse over a bookmark and right click to get the drop down menu that will let me "Open", "Open in new Window", "Open in new Tab", etc... As soon as I move the mouse, this menu disappears. I cannot mouse over it to make a selection.

If I don't move the mouse I can use the arrow keys to make a selection and then hit enter.

Heya,

From time to time, I'm using my girlfriends laptop with Windows 7. I have my own profile there.

As she is Italian, she has installed the Italian Firefox. I do not speak any word of Italian, so that is abit of a problem to me. Is there any way for me to install any other language such as English or Norwegian, without affecting her installation of the Italian Firefox?
