I would link to send out a webpage link to users, where they may not have firefox as default browser. However, this link is best supported in FIrefox. So, I have to write my code in html to force the link to open in firefox.

Is there a syntax available.

Checking the Certificate Manager I find things such as TurkTrust Bilgi, Trust Ges. F. Secherheitssysteme, and so on. These are listed as Builtin Object Token. What is this token? Who are these people? Is there a list somewhere about whether to delete these? Should I just delete anyone I do not recognize?

FireFox 9.01 Mac OS 10.6

Thanks - jos

I finally solved the mystery of broken Flash by downgrading to Flash 10.0.12.36

I'm one of the many users who seems to be having trouble with Flash these days. I solved my issue by downgrading to Flash 10.0.12.36, and I think I figured out why it was happening. I use Firefox 9.0.1, and I believe Flash incorrectly detected this and silently pushed an incompatible new version. Gee, thanks Adobe.

Note: Flash 10.0.12.36 detected my Opera installation but not my Firefox installlation, but manually copying the files from Opera's plugins folder to Firefox's worked fine.

Additional Note: No, I will not upgrade. Stop typing, close your mouth. Don't even start. Take it somewhere else - preferably to another browser's dev team. Firefox has fallen long and hard since the glory days of 1.x, and 9.0.1 is the final usable version of Firefox for me. If you put half as much effort into backporting security fixes to old versions as you put into yelling at people to upgrade, you might have a happy userbase instead of a confused, angry, rapidly shrinking one. It's not the easiest way to build a product, but when was the moral high road ever easy? From my point of view, the browser's job is to unquestioningly enable content. You want to add restrictions and security? That is what addons are for. I have absolutely zero fear of running old versions; between addons and using about:config to excise unwanted Firefox features, nothing suspicious ever gets a chance to become active. I frequent some of the scariest, most infected places on the web and I have not been infected since the 90's. So I do not need to upgrade. You need to downgrade, and get back in touch with your alienated former users, who want a modern browser that looks and acts like Firefox 1.x and would rather scrap a proposed feature entirely than break a single addon.

OK, I feel much, much better now. Time to go watch some Youtube!

I always have 2-3 windows with 30-40 tabs on each going on at a time, and when I power off my laptop, I simply close the windows knowing that I can restore "Recently Closed Windows" from the opened one when I restart ff. But this is the 2nd time even the 2nd windows is not shown there. Disaster! Where can I manually restore the one with more than 50 tabs?

At the company where I work we chose to create a self-signed certificate and try to install it on all browsers. It was possible to place it in Internet Explorer and Google Chrome but fail in Firefox. We create a page similar to this (http://br.mozdev.org/firefox/caixa) and would like to display it if the browser does not have the public key installed. Is there a way to check via javascript whether a certificate is installed in the browser?

Error message: "Update could not be installed. Please make sure no other copies of Firefox running on your computer and restart Firefox again."

There are no other copies running. At least none that I know of - how do I check - and if not, what else would be the problem/how can I fix?

Firefox won't search if I type in a query into the address bar

Since the latest Firefox update (14.01 - I am not posting this from my own laptop so it will read as lower than 14.01) my Firefox browser will no longer search via Google (for example if I type in a place/company it doesn't bring up Google with search results).

I have looked for an tips/advice and found this question on the forum but now when I search it brings up the website that is the top result, and not Google itself.

Is this a glitch with the newest update? On this library computer which is 9.0.1 it doesn't have anything entered into the keyword.URL that is mentioned in the above link and it manages to search via Google just fine.

Is there anything else I need to do?
