Hi all -

Instead of firing up FF and then clicking on the toolbar icon - "Open a Private Browsing Window" every time, is there a way to create a Desktop Shortcut to click on which brings up FF in Private Browsing mode?

Perhaps I can place it in my quick launch toolbar.

Also -

Is it possible to set a default "homepage" for Private Browsing mode?

Any help always appreciated. Thanks.

I'm reposting part of another thread that was closed because no one is actually listening to the people that are posting the problem.

Quote:

I had the same problem, after I installed Yahoo Messenger. I asked not to install the toolbar, but it was installed. Then I uninstalled it, I disabled it from addons, yet, the toolbar was there no matter what I did. I uninstalled Firefox, reinstalled, with the download from mozilla, the toolbar was still there. I did all that one has to do in order to uninstall a piece of software, without being "the tech guy". I do not have the same problem in Chrome or Internet Explorer. It was uninstalled from all other browsers when I removed the program from control panel. I can't see what I can do to get rid of it. I choose to just hide it for now, but it bugs me that I have a piece of software that behaves like a virus, doing stuff I don't want it to do. And for the record, I am not confused about the search for yahoo and toolbar for yahooo. Right clicking on the interface, allowed me to check or uncheck exactly that "yahoo toolbar".

/quote

This is exactly my problem as well.

In the other thread several people said 'disable it in your add-ons' Well as the poster above mentioned and I can confirm **it is not in the add-ons area**

Others said 'use the add/remove function in the control panel' and as the poster above mentioned and once again I can confirm **I did this and it no longer shows up under add/remove but the toolbar is still annoyingly there**

Yet others said 'you must have downloaded a special yahoo version of Firefox' No, we (or at least I) didn't. The toolbar was installed when I installed Yahoo messenger

-I can't believe a 'clean install' of Firefox is the answer to this problem--if so this is just ridiculous.

If there is no actual answer, I can accept that but I am frustrated that people are posting responses that very clearly are not the right answers because the people posting the problems were very clear about the issues.

Thanks for reading, please assist if you can.

I used to make a backup or saved copy of my favorites with internet explorer on my XP computer and the result was an easily opened list of all my links in order. Recently I installed firefox and I now tried to do the same thing. I did a backup to my bookmarks and could not open the file initially. After some searching I was able to open the file with several programs but all of the results were useless. I kept getting a document with tons of data from the extreme left to right side of the screen in no format or in a usable list. So how can I get the backup or a saved copy in microsoft windows works (not word) processor like all my other windows XP documents are in?

If your only solution is to tell me to: 1.Restart my computer 2.Start Firefox in safemode 3.Use another hotkey to open a new tab that's not middle mouse button.

Then don't even bother replying. As I've done the first two and it made no difference and 3rd option is a solution at all.

This is frustrating and I'm slightly upset that after reading 20+ Pages of the same problem dating back from 2011 that there are no answers.

I am on a fresh install Windows XP (Yes I know old school) with firefox version 27.0.1.

Yesterday I updated Adobe Flash Player and now I can not to play any game! When I go to the page with the game, there is a gray background...

I just installed a fresh windows xp on my pc and I'm using the latest FF 26.0,but from the start i cant get to some pages,like in youtube,some pages doesnt come up and i get the "This connection is untrusted" page,in the technical details it says "youtube.com uses an invalid security certificate,the certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain is provided.(Error code:sec_error_unknown_issuer). also when i open FF add-ons manager tab Extensions,Appearance,Plugins and Services are ok but the Get Add-ons tab is not working,i get the same page as i stated above with the same technical details (instead of youtube.com it's services.addons.mozilla.org) and same error. I've tried all solutions on the web and on this forum like reset FF, adjust time & date, using the "Skip cert error" add-on, deleting the cert8.db file, and so on - none of them helped me with this problem. If it helps i use Avast! antivirus and window firewall,no other software on that pc. I'm pretty clueless about what else i can do,any suggestion that might help? Thanks!

Can someone offer a legitimate reason why someone cannot figure out how to place a "clearly visible" ICON that you can click to exit full screen mode.

It wouldn't even have to that friggin big, would it.

Where would it be located at. How about right near the point where you clicked to enter full screen mode.

I'd rather get frustrated hunting for it.

And restarting Firefox doesn't friggin help, does it.

Yeh, I found it, hence the post.
