When in Internet Explorer I can set it up to display JavaScript errors as follows. Select Tools then Internet Options… then the Advanced tab. Under Browsing, find Display a notification about every script error and be sure its box is checked.

I cannot find out how to do this in Firefox. I would like for it to display details about JavaScript errors when they occur instead of doing nothing.

mailto: links used to open in Outlook. Then they began opening Gmail, so I uninstalled the Google Toolbar. Now mailto: links do nothing when I click on them. I've tried deleting the mimeTypes.rdf as recommended by File types and download actions. I also see that my mailto: is set to Outlook as shown by my Applications setting, but the links are still not working, even though they work in IE. Ideas?

Windows 7 64 bit. Firefox 3.6.15. Youtube had been playing fine here for a year. Suddenly the videos do not play. They do fine in IE. Loading a youtube video produces a blank screen where the video should be, and the error console is filled with messages like this:

Warning: Error in parsing value for 'filter'. Declaration dropped. Source File: http://s.ytimg.com/yt/cssbin/www-core-vfldtJIUN.css Line: 1


Have uninstalled/reinstalled flashplayer and Firefox to no avail. Everything was fine until just recently.

Any ideas?

The Coupon Buddy show up in my predefined components list in the toolbar options when I right click on my toolbar... there are other things in the list such as Bit Torrent Youtube Games and Music... and for every thing in the list the delete option is greyed out. I have searched the web for info on the coupon buddy but I cant come up with anything. I have kept my Avast Anti virus updated as well as my spybot search and destroy and scans have not come up with anything wrong. I am not sure when this found its way on to my computer and it is not listed within the programs and features within the windows control panel.

Will loading pages as "Basic HTML" load faster? Pages take 30 - 60 seconds, downloads OK at 1 MB a minute. Some sites, e.g. Yahoo Mail, have a button to load faster as Basic HTML. Can other sites load as Basic HTML? So: Can I set Firefox to automatically load as Basic HTML if that site can be?

Under View -> Sidebar -> Bookmarks there exists a L-O-N-G list of folders and individual site bookmarks.

There is ONE ENTRY for "Bookmarks Menu" and following that are TWO independent lists of one set of Folders and individual bookmarks, THEN a SECOND set of Folders is followed by another list of individual bookmarks. Neither of these sets' entries are duplicates of the other.

How can I merge the two of them so that I have one set of FOLDERS followed by one set of INDIVIDUAL Bookmarks - so that I can sort the entire list alphabetically?

Currently, when I Right-Click on the "Bookmarks Menu" I am shown options that include the "Sort by Name" choice. When I choose "Sort by Name" *ONLY* the first set of FOLDERS & INDIVIDUAL bookmark entries become sorted alphabetically.

Ideally I'd like to have BOTH lists be merged and sorted.

How this happened (the existence of two sets of FOLDERS & INDIVIDUAL bookmark lists) I do not know.

Your help, anyone's help, is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I'm trying to use Mozilla Firefox 3.6.15 with the Web Version of QPASA 4.0.0.80a, an MQSeries monitoring tool. When I point to the QPASA URL, I'm prompted to install a plugin. However, when I try to install it, Firefox looks for http://javadl-esd.sun.com/update/1.5.0/jre-1_5_0_11-windows-i586.xpi, but says it can't install it because the Install script was not found (-204).

When I google jre-1_5_0_11-windows-i586.xpi, I find it's actually located at http://java.sun.com/update/1.5.0/jre-1_5_0_11-windows-i586.xpi. However, even when I paste this location into the Firefox url window, Firefox STILL insists on looking for it in http://javadl-esd.sun.com/update/1.5.0/jre-1_5_0_11-windows-i586.xpi and fails.

How can I get Firefox to look for this file in the correct location?
