Using Firefox 19.0.2 (Windows XP SP3).

Is there some way to allow Firefox to show ONLY a list of current session cookies while in private browsing mode, rather than a list of the normal cookies?

First of all, basic cookie handling appears to be working fine for me, in both normal mode and in private browsing: Cookies set during private browsing are deleted as expected when exiting Firefox or when toggling back to normal browsing.

HOWEVER...

I am unable to SEE the new cookies that are added during a private browsing session.


If I start Firefox normally, toggle to private browsing mode, and then go to Options> Show Cookies, the window opens showing a long list of my "normal" cookies.

Previously, the cookies window would appear to be EMPTY when starting a private browsing session. After browsing a while, and then rechecking the list I would see only the cookies set during that private browsing session.


NOW, during a private browsing session, when I recheck the cookies list I see only my normal cookies, and NONE of the new session cookies appear in the list (the same cookies are shown as before switching to private mode).

I have tried starting Firefox in Safe Mode, with no change in behavior. I have also tried disabling add-ons, with no change.

List of add-ons installed:

Adblock Pluss 2.2.3 BetterPrivacy 1.6.8 Ghostery 2.9.3 Googlebar Lite 4.9.7 IE View 1.5.6 Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant 1.3.1 PrivacyChoice TrackerBlock 2.2 Status-4-Evar 2013.02.16.23 Bookmark Favicon Changer 1.74 (disabled) CheckPlaces 2.6.2 (disabled)


Suggestions?

Thanks!

At Christmas time, I downloaded a look on my toolbar offered by Firefox that was Christmas candles. I've tried over 25 times to make it go away with no luck. I'm sure this is easy...but is sure isn't obvious. Can you help? It is just where my tabs go and it was an option I saw on Firefox to customize the screen. Seemed like a great idea on a cozy Saturday before Christmas but it has become UBER annoying.

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/955623]

I go to www.Jardencs.com/careers. When I click on the "Career Opportunities" link I get this error message:

Request Error Forbidden directory Listing denied Close the browser and try to log on again. Error Code: 403.14.

The link has worked on my desktop computer before today, and I can open the link accessing the site through my cell phone. I just can't get it on my desktop now. Last night I installed Torch on this desktop, but I've uninstalled it since I started having this problem. The problem persists even after the uninstall.

How do I fix it?

Hello, Does Firefox "un-cloak" cloaked domains and reveal only true URLs?

When I type in uworlds.net.au the content (at uworlds.partnerconsole.net) is displayed with uworlds.net.au remaining in the address bar in INTERNET EXPLORER and SAFARI (desired result).

When I type in uworlds.net.au the content (at uworlds.partnerconsole.net) is displayed with uworlds.partnerconsole.net remaining in the address bar in FIREFOX.

Do you know why there is this difference? Thank you.

I remember the days when Firefox was really customizable...

You could actually select how far back FF would remember your history...I used to have nearly two years' worth of history...before the 'new and improved' system of 'rapid releases', that is.

It's not the release cycle that p****s me off, it's the little surprises that you discover later. Some of you know what I mean, the ones that the developers don't tell you about...the ones that all of the bug fixes, security patches and new features are supposed to make us overlook or forget the things that have been removed or don't work right...

Sorry, but I'm getting tired of wondering what in the hell is going to go wrong next...

I'm making myself a site, when i click to to open what will be the navigation area there is another scrolling area. when i scroll down a greyed out reflection of the top of the website appears.

at one point i even managed to get the toolbar to appear down there.

Have tested in Safari, Android and iPhone and it works perfectly. i recognize it's probably somethign in the code or js plugins im using.. but it only appears in firefox.

Last week I realised that my old firefox did not work as all the extensions where gone and they could not be added again. I saved my old profile and made new one and then reinstalled firefox and got the 19 version. When I tried to import my old bookmarks it did not work - the folders where there but they were empty. But worse is that I cannot save any bookmarks at all. I have reinstalled Firefox, I have the 'Troubleshooter' and everything. Sometimes I can save one bookmark after I have opened the browser, but after that it does not work. I don't relly care if I cannot import the old bookmarks (I have imported them into explorer instead, and that worked) but at least I want to be able to save new ones. For the moment, the only reason I use Firefox is that I use Zotero, but if I keep having these problem I will change browser. I have not spend up to a working day trying to solve this problem.

Since several months I have successfully used "lockPref" to lock settings (specifically, proxy settings) on Firefox 17 and Firefox 18.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04, and I have used the file:
/etc/firefox/pref/firefox.js.
Firefox 17 did not always honor those settings. Often it did, sometimes it did'nt. I also found that there is another file location some people are using (?), and this is:

usr/lib/firefox/defaults/preferences/vendor-firefox.js 

To be sure, I put my settings into both of them. With Firefox 18, it did honor those settings. So this was working well.
(Note - I have NOT used any byteshifting or anything, as one can read was necessary for old versions of Firefox. There being no clear documentation by version, I feel I have no way to tell if this is actually still required or not. It was working without any byteshifting on Firefox 17 and 18.)

I just upgraded to Firefox 19 - and voila (of course, I might say) again the settings are not being honored. This time they are NEVER honored. They are JUST IGNORED, EVERY TIME.

This is very upsetting - can someone please point out what is now changed?
Do I now need to use yet another configuration locking file location?
Or do I suddenly need to do this byteshifting thing - if so what is the procedure right now for this?

Settings I am trying to lock are:

//set proxy server settings
lockPref("network.proxy.http", "a.b.c.d");
lockPref("network.proxy.http_port", yy);
lockPref("network.proxy.https", "a.b.c.d");
lockPref("network.proxy.https_port", yy);
lockPref("network.proxy.no_proxies_on", "localhost, 127.0.0.1");
lockPref("network.proxy.type", 1);

The context-sensitive Firefox menu that appears when I right click on a link appears exactly over the context-sensitive application menus that come up in Yahoo, Box, and other sites, so the Firefox menu blocks me from seeing or clicking on the Yahoo or Box menu options. Is there a way to prevent the Firefox menu from appearing on top when another menu is active? or a way to disable the Firefox menu when on certain web sites? Even having the Firefox menu appear in a different location (to the left, for example, instead of to the right), would enable me to see and access the website's application menu.

Recently I noticed that my R click search in google feature was missing, I tried restarting in safe mode to no avail, nor did any attempts in about:config.

I'm currently using FF 19.0.2 with Vista, and up until recently had no issues. I've also run my antiviral which is kept up to date as well as malwarebytes and even kaspersky ttsskiller all with no issues found.

Any ideas or suggestion?

Thanks

Firefox 19 seems to have dropped the warnings about insecure HTTP(S) contents, i.e. warn about submitting form data over HTTP (no S!), mixed secure and insecure contents, leaving a HTTPS page and so on. How can I get these warnings back? Or are there now different warning mechanisms (e.g. showing an insecure form submission in adance, that means at the time of filling it in)?

Cannot close Firefox completely since upgrade to version 18

Since I updated Firefox (actually it updated itself automatically) to version 18, it never closes cleanly anymore. Whether I close it using the cross on the top right, or using the menu option File > Exit, it disappears, but remains in memory.

So next time I try to start Firefox I get the message that Firefox is still running but it is not, just the process is still in memory. Only way to solve this is to use the Task Manager and kill the firefox.exe process. Then I can start Firefox again.

This problem is reproducible on all versions since 18, including the current 19.0.2. It happens every time !

But if I install version 17.0.2, then I have no problems at all ! So it is something introduced in release 18 that broke it.

I of course tried all "suggestions" about testing extensions (same problem in safe mode, so not the problem), disabling hardware acceleration, ...

Can someone please help ? (I am more and more considering switching to Chrome as this is really annoying ...)
