Hi,

I'm locking our proxy settings to our users with Autoconfig and this settings:

lockPref("network.proxy.type", 2); lockPref("network.proxy.autoconfig_url", "http://example.intranet/proxy.pac");

That locks the proxy configuration in a standard Firefox installation, but it's easy to bypass using addons like FoxyProxy (there are much addons like that). How can I secure lock the proxy configuration?

Thx

I use Mozbackup to synchronise Firefox from my desktop to my laptop. My laptop's Firefox would not start and displayed a crash reporting dialog.

I completely uninstalled and made a fresh, new install with Beta 19.0.2. I then restored my Mozbackup from my desktop, item by item. When the "Certificates" item was restored, Firefox would not start and display the crash repoting dialog. So now I know that the certificates item is the culprit.

Why does this allow Firefox to start on my desktop but refuses to do so on my laptop?

Thanks a lot! heskel@usa.net

Pdf forms in Adobe Reader are looking different than they used to. I also keep getting a message at the top which says "This pdf document might not be displayed correctly."

This is in Adobe Reader X.

Hi, I can not access ebay.de ; bbc.co.uk , cnn.com and so on. But if I try signin.ebay.de then the site opens and I can login. But I can not bid, open anything I watch and so on. When I try to open one of the mentioned sites the result is. Server is down, disconnected, or absolutely nothing. Help!!. This problem started when I upgraded from 18.0 to 18.01. I hoped it would dissapear with 19 beta but no it didn`t. Normally when you click a link you will see the link down inthe left corner while Firefox opens up the new site - but nothing. I`ve tried to put the adr. into the "bar" directly, but no same result. I`m running Firefox 18.0 at my portable PC and there are no problems. I`m using Windows 7 Home edition. One more thing normally there has been no problem with upgrading but this time I had to download the whole Firefox (booth the 18.01 and 19.0beta versions) and run them as admin to be able to upgrade. HELP!!!

Ever other website I visit works perfectly, and I can navigate all the pages on USCHO.com and Boards.USCHO.com fine. It's just when I try to post on their fan forum that I get the reset/timeout. It will allow me to post if I use Google Chrome, but only if the post is less than 50 characters. It will not post on IE either.

I've gone through all the suggestions, troubleshooting listed here and nothing has worked in stopping this "hanging" business. It started earlier this week with FF16. So I tried uninstalling, clearing out any traces of it, profiles and all. R-installed with the previous extensions, plugins and scripts. Still did it. So I either disabled or uninstalled said add-ons. Still did it. Upgraded to 17, then 18. Same problem. "Not responding" every couple of minutes for just a few seconds, longer when I switched tabs. I'm a heavy tab user, but given the problem, I've gone down to no more than 3 open at the same time. Still hangs. So I decided to do a complete overhaul. Did a reset. I even thought it was my computer (Vista with SP2) which had been working fine and was slowing down around the same time FF was hanging and being a resource hog.

With FF uninstalled, with the help of Microsoft support, I worked on the laptop. Uninstalled my usual programs, including AV (which had avast). Moved all my files to an external hard drive. In essence leaving my computer with bare bones. Did a defrag and a system restore. I reinstalled av, then ran it. All clear. Ran malwarebytes. All clear. Ran registry clean. All fine. So I reinstalled FF18 and did not use any add-ons. Still hanged. Went up to FF19 beta thinking whatever but there is, would be cured. And it worked fine witn no add-ons. So I started installing my usuals, but leaving only the most important ones, ABP, No Script. Was ok so I added greasemonkey, smartest toolbar, download statusbar and unhide passwors. All which I've used for years with no problems. And FF19 worked fine with no hanging for like a day and a half. Today, (jan 24) not only is it haning and not responding again, but it's doing it more frequently and for longer.

FF never has crashed, it just hangs and freezes. My job is ALL online. I don't like Chrome (not user friendly to me). I'd rather avoid using IE. I'm a user of FF since day one, but this is stressing me out because I cannot do my job properly.

What can I do to make it stop? My only other option is to just forget FF and try and get used to Opera.

Now that I think about it, could this hanging problem be related to the Java issue that has come out publicly recently?

I don't know what else to do. I've tried everything that has been written here. Trust me, I've wasted 2 days on this issue. Time I'll never get back and I could've used to do work.

Thanks

The tab strip that runs across the top (just below the url address) has tabs that I don't want there. I want to remove them. One tab, in particular, does not even show an icon but just the url address. I especially want that one OFF. I can't figure out how to take tabs OFF the tab strip. At the LEAST, I want to hide the tab strip from view.
