A newspaper website asked if I wanted to tell them my location. Firfox popped up and asked if I wanted to automatically tell sites that ask my geographic location. I clicked and got more information. There was a section that gave instructions to permanently disable geographic location tracking. I followed the directions to disable, even though the default is no tracking. I had to type an two words with a : separating them into the address bar. This brought me to a long list of settings. I followed the directions but now it seems my location is being tracked by everyone.

How do I get back to this list of settings (which was not accessed through Options) to go back to the default?

When I try to access this US military site, https://www.tricareonline.com/portal/page/portal/TricareOnline/Portal I get a warning that this site can't be trusted. I then get a notice to override Firefox if I trust the site. I get a certificate, override, and finally get the site. But this has happened a half dozen or so times, every time I try to log in to the military site. How can I log into this site without the annoying warnings?

Thanks, Donald Sullivan

So, this is the problem. The url-bar (the "Awesomebar") predicts the website I'm typing and already puts it in there for me to enter.

The thing is, I mistyped a website once, for example:

instead of "www.youtube.com" I typed "www.yotube.com" (in this case, the website "yotube.com" doesn't exist)

now, every time I enter www.y it shows "yotube.com" in the Awesomebar and "youtube" in the dropdown right under it.

So the prediction is false, while the bookmark is the right website.

Which means that every time I type www.y - it shows www.yotube.com and I'm sent to the wrong website, having to add a 'u' every time. Even though the bookmark shows the correct website and the prediction doesn't.

Even if I delete history, "forget about this website", delete places.sqlite and do all that, it stays like that.

Have reinstalled the open source 'Endian Firewall' on another machine, which is accessed using a browser using HTTPS. It does not have valid certificates but I have always been able to add an override however, this time I can not. The workaround provided in the Firefox support area mentioned above does not solve the problem. I urgently need to access the firewall to make some config changes but have reached a dead end. The article says it may be out of date, is there another workaround I can try? Will reinstalling the firewall or reinstalling Firefox reset the old behaviour?

I set it to always start in private browsing on a Mac. For some sessions, I would like to start the browser where the history IS kept on the computer. When I try to go and turn off private browsing in the "Tools" menu, the "Stop Private Browsing" menu is grayed out (i.e. unable to click it).

Basically, I want a reverse to the original function (i.e. I want it to always be in private browsing EXCEPT for certain times instead of the original never in private browsing EXCEPT for certain times).

I keep having problems with my online banking website. Frequently, I have to re-register my computer with them. I have checked with their support and they find nothing wrong at their end. They said it probably had to do with security and/or privacy settings in Firefox. They told me to select "custom setting for history" under privacy in options. I did this and it seems to work until Firefox updates and then it resets to "remember history":under privacy. When this happens I have to re-register my computer on that web site. Since this happens every few days and I have 5 different accounts on this website, it is a pain. This has only been occurring in the past several weeks.

Why is this happening?
