I will be moving to a new Windows OS (WIndows 7SP1 64-Bit), and I want to do a clean install. How can I back up EVERYTHING, including bookmarks, settings, apps, themes, etc.. ? So when I do the clean install, I won't have to worry about anything. Do I have to do each one individually, or can I do a complete backup? So when I go to install Firefox on the new OS, everything will be just like I had it before.

Secondly, can I move my Firefox to a USB flash stick, and make it mobile? I would appreciate all and any help. Thank You.

Firefox has been filled with ads in the last few days (no ads in Chrome or IE), and no malware from my scans; is there any way to avoid the ads on every site?

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'd like to use VLC Web Player for viewing YouTube videos rather than use Adobe Flash. Adobe Flash is very slow on my other computers and when websites use my VLC Web Player, I have no issues whatsoever. I'm curious if this can be done with Firefox, as I researched it only to find an add-on for Google Chrome only.

I try to close tabs, they sometimes, not always freeze and then a minute or two later they finally close. I can minimize firefox. Don't really want to close the whole thing down. This is only a recent development. I can right click, use the drop down menu and close that way without any problems....if I remember.

I was having trouble syncing data and had to create a new profile. The new profile ran an automatic update that I DID NOT want run. You have now updated me to a product that does not work with my Norton Product which I use extensively. This is a BETA product that you updated me to also. I am at the point right now of uninstalling Firefox on all my devices and telling everyone I know about how untrustworthy it is. I want to go back to the product where THINGS WORKED CORRECTLY.
