I have an employee I suspect of doing internet research for another company while on the clock for me at my office. I have access to the places.sqlite file but how do I look at it on a different pc while the employee is at their desk? I need to do this covertly so data doesn't get deleted before I can gather it. I also need to do this as soon as possible!

Hi,

I wonder if someone could help me please.

I have an issue that extends across my browsers – Firefox and Internet Explorer (Firefox is default) and both are the latest version possible. My machine is fully patched (Win7 Pro x64 SP2).

The issue is as shown below:

'The site xxxx is requesting a user name and password. The site says: "restricted"’

The happens for some (not all) sites and I have to click “cancel” twice to remove the dialogue box, and then the site appears and works normally for a little while. The box will come up again if I attempt to click any links within the same site. It’s incredibly annoying and has been frustrating me for the past month. Here’s what I have tried so far, but hasn’t resolved the issue:

• Clearing Firefox cache/history manually (set to never remember anything)
• Tried checking/unchecking private browsing
• Made sure “accept 3rd party cookies” is enabled
• Tried all checkboxes for “no proxy”, “use system proxy” and “auto detect system proxy” etc
• Disabled all add-ons/extensions within Firefox and retried
• Performed the option to “Reset Firefox” to its default state from within “Troubleshooting”
• Completely uninstalled and re-installed Firefox (latest version)
• Went to the URL "about:config" and searched for the key "network.websocket.enabled" and switched it to "false".
• Went to the URL "about:config" and searched for the key "network.proxy.share_proxy_settings" and switched it to "false".
• Went to the URL "about:config" and searched for the key "network.automatic-ntlm-auth.allow-proxies" and switched it to "false".
• Run a full AV scan in safe mode (with latest definition files) using Avira Antivirus, Spybot Search & Destroy, MalwareBytes, Super Antispyware and performed full optimisations via Registry Mechanic, Tune-up Utilities 2013 and CC Cleaner (with CC Extender installed). No threats found.

None of the above has helped. The problem is only recent so I’m not entirely sure what’s changed.

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? I seem to have exhausted my ability to diagnose the fault via the god of Google 

Regards

I am using Firefox 4.0.1. I have checked the settings on my browser under Tools / Options / Tabs and "open new windows in tabs" is set. However, whenever I click on a link on a website, Firefox opens the link in a new window. This occurs even if I right click on the link and choose the option to open the link in a new tab instead of a new window.

This behavior began just recently. To the best of my knowledge, none of the add-ons have updated recently.

I have used Mozilla for longer than INternet Explorer and think it's great. However, since installing Webroot Security Firefox has routinely started crashing. Not always in the same place or with certain sites, but randomly. I emailed Webroot who said it's not a problem they have encountered, but they issue reguar updates - blah blah. I usually use Norton which is fine, but we have so many PCs / Laptops at home it made sense to buy a bigger licence product.

In the address bar, how do you get rid of the Amazon button, the "e-pub catalogue" button and change my search button to Google vs Babylon? Where is the button beside the forward arrow that would allow you to see your current history of links?

On my address bar, there is now a superfluous Amazon button at the right of the forward arrow where there used to be a button that would allow you to see your recent links. It's gone. In addition there is a useless "epub catalog" button and the search button is Babylon instead of Google. How do I go back to my working address bar.

Sometimes when im surfing on internet firefox just stop to working properly and dont open any website or domain or anything, just can access to internet, but is not a ISP failure because i can keep chatting, skype, irc, and also navigating using internet explorer or opera, the point is just firefox stop all kind of activities with internet looks like if im not connected. To solve this i close the firefox and try to open again. When this happen i get a message saying firefox.exe is already running, then i just open task manager and try to close but doesnt matter how hard or how many times i click to close, the firefox.exe process just cannot be closed and my only solution for this is restarting the pc. There are any way beyond task manager to force the shutdown of firefox.exe? Or maybe any alternate program to force a shutdown of firefox.exe??

I've just intalled the Firefox 3.6.8 and try to activate the tool for private navegation, but I couldn't do it because it is un-available (just a grey tag) My problem is that always I've downloaded one file, picture or video, it appears in a screen, added to others I've downloaded before, and this is no good because my computer is used by three different people. How to stop that download history screen for ever?

My OS is XP-x64. The Firefox version I am on is 14.0.1 (July 2012, "FunnelCake").

The "C: \Documents and Setting\Downloads\" is the folder I used to try downloading the same file to via 2 different methods.

1) When this folder is set as the permanent download location, it works.

2) When I use the "Always ask me where.." download setting, and I select the same folder, the Firefox window completely disappears without any message at all !

I get the same result with (2) even if I already turned my VirusScan software off.

This same behavior persists after completely uninstalling and re-installing Firefox.

Hello Team,

We are not developing our site in corePHP. We have also enabled SSL on our site.

When one visits our Website and goes to the Page Info > Media Files; It discloses the source and hence increased chances of hacking attacks on the site. We are a little reluctant about this as well.

Kindly guide us further with appropriate suggestions or solution.

I have this weird problem, when I try to go on Firefox about:config section to add a new string the string isnt added.

I need to add 3 strings in order to get website loading some pictures directly from my HDD.

I have tried reinstalling Firefox, going Safe-Mode to try add these strings, but it wont accept them, no error or anything pops up.

On work I have done the steps without problems, here it works fine.

Troubleshooting information

New String: capability.policy.policynames "localfilelinks" New String: capability.policy.localfilelinks.sites "http://www.fallensword.com" New String: capability.policy.localfilelinks.checkloaduri.enabled "allAccess"

Every time I do a Google search, the first link in that search clicked will direct me to a known attack site at http://64.111.212.229/ (URL followed by lines of gibberish code). It will occur only on the first link of any new search attempted.

My AV (Symantec Corporate 10.1.7.7000 version 12/8/2010 rev. 2) does not pick up any malware.

The problem does not occur in Google Chrome.

Does anyone have a similar problem and/or solution?

My Firefox: 3.6.13, OS: Windows 2003 Server Standard SP2.

I want the click to play feature. I do not want it to run automatically and suck up my cpu I want to choose which flvs run.

It is now forcing me to "activate" adobe to automate it and that is precisely what I do not want to do!

It works fine on google chrome whats up with deeming the older versions invalid and FORCING me to activate the latest version?

What if anything is the solution? Instal an earlier version of mozilla?
