I would like to have in next version of Firefox a checkbox, when I click on a text field which has saved username, then I would only see saved usernames for this current website. Now I see saved usernames for all websites.

So when I click on a checkbox, the saved usernames in blue reactangle on picture below, won't be shown. I will only see usernames "From this website".

This can be useful, when there are many saved usernames for many websites.

In the past, I have bookmarked frequently used pdf's. Retrieving the bookmark always loaded the file into acrobat. Now, however, the file is loaded into the Firefox pdf reader. If I open the pdf from windows explorer it opens into acrobat. Is there a way to go from bookmark to acrobat?

Hi I've read [page] and try to apply the instructions but somehow I can't get it to autocomplete to the domain I want. These work the way I want them to for example, when I type gm it autocompletes to gmail.com; when I type y it autocompletes to youtube.com. It used to never autocomplete for gmail.com but then I used the arrow key to select gmail.com from the drop menu, and hit Enter (per the instructions on the above mentioned page) and since then it autocompletes to gmail.com. So that worked as intended. But when I type ik it autocompletes to ikea.com while I want it to autocomplete to ikea.nl. The latter does show up in the drop menu and no matter how often I use the arrow key to select it and press enter, it still keeps autocompleting in the address bar to ikea.com. Am I missing a crucial step?

Thank you

edit: I've tried deleting ikea.com with Shift Delete, but it keeps coming back after I've closed the tab/browser

The problem is spotting the start of a logical grouping in many tabs open at once in a window. I arrange them in order when researching something. So, there's 20 tabs open, 4 different categories of the subject topic. There has to be a way besides a sidebar, to signify fast which group starts where. Best case scenario would be marking the 1st tab of a group with a flag, or static pop-up - a short, 15 character-limit description to signify which group it is (like '4k', '1080p', '720p', for video resolution values). 2nd-best would be a mouse-hover message, i.e. a flag or balloon to pop-up with the 15-character description. Finally, I could color-code the 1st tab of a group, or even the text .I saw some good extensions that did these - looks like Firefox disabled them with the latest browser upgrade. Are there any cross-browser or Firefox persistent apps or add-ons that will let me mark up individual tabs, with either icons, messages, or background colors?

Because of the location where I live, most of google services are blocked on the internet. Yesterday I wanted to download a device driver from www.m-audio.com but the driver's page stopped loading. I noticed a message at the bottom left of the Firefox window saying "waiting for www.google.com" or something similar. Because of that wait, I could open the page only after 4 tries and waiting way too much time. Can I filter page contents from google so Firefox skips them?

I run Firefox with multiple profiles, as there are several people that use this computer. I start firefox with -p <profilename> -no-remote.

This all works fine except if I'm in try to open a link from for instance in an email, I click on the link and it opens the profile manager. If I select a profile that already has an open window I get an error message stating

"Firefox cannot use the profile "Rick" because it is in use. To continue, close the running instance of Firefox or choose a different profile."

Is there anyway to have it open the link in a new tab of an already running profile, rather then having to close the profile and then click the link.

HDD was failing in my other computer. Put in a new HDD and transferred bookmarks (FFox. 16.++ on both) but don't remember how to transfer my saved passwords. Some folks helped me with this when I rebuilt this PC (the one I am using to send this info), and I remember most of the path and method but not well enough to attempt it without some guidance. The other PC is an ASUS G50VT-X5 laptop.

Firefox website shortcut icons on my desktop now look like the first choice one sees when right clicking a shortcut icon , then left clicking "properties", and then clicking " change icon" -- they should look like a white square with the firefox logo in the center instead of a white square with a little box containing 3 tiny symbols.

I'm running XP Pro SP3

How do I restore the original appearance?

I just updated to the newest Firefox. I'm sad that the google toolbar is no longer supported. But I'll soldier on... <big sigh>.

Seriously though: The function I miss from google toolbar is the drop down menu in the search bar, allowing me to 'drop down' and reselect a previous search phrase... what can I say, I'm scatter brained and easily distracted, so I often return to a concept multiple times a week.

How can I emulate the same function in FF 17?
