IS there a way to start a session in NOT private browsing on a Mac after you set it to always start in private browsing besides going to the preferences?

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?

I am using the firefox version 17 and when i drag and drop an image on my website. It gives me the following error.

Unable to access local files due to browser security settings. To overcome this, follow these steps: (1) Enter "about:config" in the URL field; (2) Right click and select New->Boolean; (3) Enter "signed.applets.codebase_principal_support" (without the quotes) as a new preference name; (4) Click OK and try loading the file again. Or go to the homepage for a link to the tutorial on how to do it.

I have completed the above steps and it is still showing the same error message. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi, I am experiencing an issue whenever I log into my Uni website. I am using 17.0. I have to update my Uni password every 3 months and in the past, Firefox would ask me if I wish to update the new password into its records every time I changed. Whenever I would click on the bookmarked Uni link my Uni ID number and password would appear as the page loaded and I could simply login by right clicking the Login link.

This worked well for a while and then stopped working and I can’t for the life of me think of what changes would have been made. I have scoured the support website looking at solutions and none have worked so far. I have checked Exceptions in the security tab to make sure that the site is not being blocked and that is all clear.


Not sure of what to do next…

Thanks, Andrew
