I am prompted every time i visit a site that i enter a password on to save it in firefox 18, it's now getting annoying. I have tried to turn it off, but the box in firefox settings is shaded and won't allow me to turn password manager off, i know i can choose "never for this site" in the settings but with just about every site you go to now requires you to sign in it is really getting on my nerves. if this can't be resolved i may reluctantly have to change browser.

Even though I select delete all history each time I use Firefox, I notice that my history shows back up again after a few days. It even shows a week or more of previous history sometimes. There is another user for my computer. Are they requesting that my history be pulled up again and again, just to prove that they know which sites I am visiting? What is going on? I simply do not want my history made available to anyone but me. I do not want any history kept at all.

My concern regarding Java lies in the current caution issued by the government on possible malware access through Java. I can not find Java in the "Add/Remove Programs" list, but am not sure if this really ensures that the Java program is resident or not.

When I start Firefox 18 on either of my two laptops it starts downloading "something", I know not what.

1. I have automatic updates for Firefox turned off. 2. I have automatic updates for plugins and addons turned off. 3. I have automatic updates for windows turned off. 4. I have automatic updates for Kaspersky Internet Security turned off. 5. I log on with a 56k modem. I monitor for network activity and none is occuring. My home page in Firefox is a blank page. I activate Firefox 18 and go no where but monitor my internet traffic and 2 minutes later the downloading begins. I close Firefox 18 and the downloading stops. 6. I activate a different browser and no downloading occurs even 5 minutes after activating. 7. Out of curiosity I went down to a coffe shop yesterday, logged on to their wifi and activated Firefox 18. Eighty Nine (89) megabytes later, the downloading stopped. I have no fricking idea what got downloaded after I activated Firefox 18 but I went nowhere on the internet, just sat there and stared at my Blankpage (homepage) and watched the mysterious download take place. 8. I log on to the internet today with my 56k modem and two minutes later the downloading starts again. 9. I have an old desktop that has Firefox 3.6 something on it along with Kaspersky Internet Security and this does not happen on the desktop.

Since this only happens with Firefox 18, it seems reasonable to me to see it as Firefox 18 related and possibly a security or privacy issue but I suppose it could also be a settings issue. I do update my Internet Security every two days. I do scan my laptops regularly. This still happens. I cannot use Firefox for a browser because half my paltry 56k bandwidth is being sucked up by some mysterious unsolicited downloading that only occurs when Firefox 18 is activated.

Obviously, if the whole history is cleared, you know. But since FF offers a partial clearing, how can I know if that has been done? I know I probably need better parental controls in place; that's one issue. But I would still like to know how to tell if history is being partially cleared.

I got the Java disabled message:

Missing Java? "For your safety, Firefox has disabled your outdated version of Java. Please upgrade to the latest version."

and I decided I didn't really need Java so I removed it thru the Add/Remove programs feature in Control Panel. The message still pops up every time FF is started. It even comes up in FF safe mode with all add-ons disabled. I updated to ver 12 but that doesn't help either.

How can I stop this alert window from opening every time I start FF?

WinXP FF ver 12

Thanks!
