Why doesn't my clear history completely clear my history

Hi there,

I'm trying to clear all of the browsing history from my Firefox but it's not working. The function clears all of my searches and website preferences and passwords bar one or two websites. I've ticked all of the options for clearing history, apart from 'form and search history' as it won't let me tick this box. I also deleted all of my bookmarks, ran a CC cleaner and STILL there's search history when I start to type into the bar at the top. When I go into my history --> show all history having cleared it, it says that there is nothing there...

For example.. when I start to type P in the bar at the top.. UK Parliament immediately comes up. And my bar at the top of the page isn't one of those where you can just automatically search via Google so I don't think its doing that!...

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox but even so some websites are STILL there! How can I track these websites down and get rid of them?

Thanks for your help!!

I'm working on development of a HTML5 web application that requires accessing resources from other domains through AJAX. On Chrome browser, there is a nice way to disable web security and allow cross-domain access for AJAX. However, when it comes to Firefox, there isn't an answer that I found. I'm sure this questions might have been asked a multiple times in various forums. But, does Firefox provide a way to disable this security feature and enable cross-domain access?

Product information: I'm running the latest Firefox on Windows 7 box.

I saw another post about this, and someone linked an article in the comments, but it didn't actually tell me what it was. When I go to settings it says that my browser is being managed by my enterprise, and when I go to enterprise policies it lists "ImportEnterpriseRoots" as true. Is this just a part of Firefox, or should I be concerned? And if it is a part of Firefox what does it actually mean?

Ok... 100% honesty instead of making some story up; my boyfriend had an affair; mostly online. When I caught wind of this he mass cleared the whole internet history. This was at the end of august.

I have found the places.sqlite file using the manager add-on. BUT the old history is not there. There is history there from the last month and it shows me pages that were individually deleted but none of the old history is there. I want to go as far back as March 2013 if I can. My bf knows I am doing this and said he would give me any password I may need to do so.

I feel like Iv been living a lie for months and I want some piece of mind. I need to make a big decision right now and seeing this history will help me. Pleas tell me there is a way too do this?!?!?! I'm hanging by a thread here.

I have used Firefox for about 7 years. No issues... I recently installed Ghostery add on.

The only way to describe it is: I go to a page.. Click a link (or close to it) or enter or any other button/link that would take me to what I expect..

BUT instead it opens a new tab to an advertisement site (quibids, P&G, many other random ads) - a few of them I blacklisted with BLOCKSITE (installed after the problem started happening) but several I can't because I would actually use them when I need to (ex: Vistaprint.com)

When I go back to the original site and click the same link and click it again it works as intended. This happens across all sites that I am on... It is like there is a hidden link within the one I am clicking on. I have pop ups blocked in my browser but this gets around it somehow.

Since GHOSTERY installed, some sites do not work correctly. If I click on a picture, or something that I want to expand it is as if I am doing nothing at all because it won't complete the action, the functionality is broken.

I have white listed a couple sites but this is random and if I whitelist everything I come across then it opens me back to what I am trying to avoid..

EXAMPLES:

went on Heat.com, clicked the button to go to the White Hot Gear instead it opened a new tab brandonline.com

was on LinkedIn and hit the comment button on a thread, then it opened a new tab vistaprint.com

was on publix.com, hit the order refills button, then it opened a new tab premium-promos.net

did a google search clicked on the link I wanted, it opened a new tab premiumgiftrewards.net

EACH time I go back to the original site and click the same button/link/etc it takes me where expected.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi there!

I have been having trouble with Firefox continuing to autoplay videos even with preferences set to "Block Audio and Video."

If I go to twitter.com or elsewhere Firefox will show that auto play is disabled, but videos will autoplay with no audio. I would just like to get this feature working as autoplaying videos are incredibly annoying!

Thanks for any help!

Since updating Firefox to 18.0, some of my websites no longer work. These are sites where java is used. Some of these are know safe sites (they are company owned, use important web apps written in java, hosted locally). These are mission critical apps, but no longer work. They keep giving the message, "An application from the location below is requesting permission to run." It then gives the URL. I have the option to Run or Cancel. There is a check box for "Do not show me again for this app." Even if i check the box and hit run, the next time back at the page it runs again. There are like 20 of these every page.

Firefox needs to create a way to allow exceptions for know sites to always run these java scripts. Without that, it basically becomes junk for me.

Camera not authorized. Please check your media permissions settings.

There have been times where it let me through and I was able to test it but more often it refuses. Also have the same problem

using Facebook. When I switch over to Chrome browser I don't have any problems which leads me to believe the problem is with

Firefox. I've seen other people mentioning this but I didn't see any resolutions
