I want to erase all certificate exceptions, that is, go back to the original default set of trusted SSL certificates. I've found the Certificate Manager and its big lists of trusted things, but I have no idea which of them ship with Firefox and which of them were added by me at some time in the past. How do I do this?

The errors are: script busy: Programfiles/Mozillafirefox/components/nsExtensionmanager.js:623 or [JavaScript Error: "dir is null" {file: "file:///C:/Users/Owner/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/v8lye5o2.default/extensions/%7B0538E3E3-7E9B-4d49-8831-A227C80A7AD3%7D/components/nsForecastfox.js" line: 323}]' when calling method: [ffIDiskService::get].

The only solution is uninstall firefox and reinstall. I have to do this every day as it only works until firefox hangs or closes.I'm running Vista. Never had this problem until I updated to 3.6.8 and then I kept getting java errors, so I downloaded the newest java. Now if firefox starts at all, the add ons don't work. If I uninstall and reinstall, they work temporarily until I have to close firefox.

Hello to the to the Firefox team ,

When one click a eMule or aMule (P2P) link , there is no

option to associate it with /usr/bin/ed2k (the P2P program) .

In former versions you had to go in "about:config" and enter a New then Boolean with as name :

    "network.protocol-handler.external.ed2k"  and value :
    "true" 

Then again New String "network.protocol-handler.app.ed2k"

with "/path/to/ed2k" as a value .

I have Firefox 3.6.7 on a Fedora 13 O.S. and the classic

doesn't do the trick . How comes ?

Now I get a warning window witch basically says : (translated & abbreviated from Dutch)

" don't now how to open this address , this protocol (ed2k) isn't associated with any program "

Only option is the OK button , end of history , no way to

associate , as explained in MIME types etc.. ...

I've no idea , and there seams to be nobody else having

the problem , there isn't anything in the FAQ's or the

knowledge base .

Thank you for the attention ,

Sincerely greeted

Martin

Its great that you've updated your release schedule and are innovating at such a fast pace.

But youv'e got to remember that you need to provide setup files to all the older versions of firefox for testing purposes. I found an old copy of 3.6.7, I got 5, I will probably get 6 soon when you update it, but I can't find a reliable trustworthy source for firefox 4.

This is a recent problem, when printing from a Website in Firefox (this is only happening on my Desktop Machine with Windows 7 not my laptop using the same printers) The problem is independent of which printer I use. There is a small amount of information on each page spread over many pages. There is no problem at all when printing from my regular programs only from a Fire Fox website. This is not happening when I print from Microsoft Internet Explorer.

I was given an old Mac desktop G4 (system reinstalled) with Internet Explorer 5.2 which is too old to display the download pages for Flash, Explorer, and FireFox... all I see are blank pages, some artwork, only a few working links, no way to download. Looking at the same pages on my PC tells me that the page displays on the Mac are all screwed up. Since I want FireFox as my browser I thought I might as well skip the upgrade of IE, which I can't do anyway without an IE CD, and just order FireFox on CD-ROM for Mac OS X v10.2.3 (from my PC). I don't see anywhere that offers a CD version (which I am willing to pay for). All I need is a way to order a version of FireFox on CD-ROM that will work on Mac OS X v10.2.3
