Using pref.js or a pac file suggests that firefox will only load settings when it opens. I would like to manipulate settings from an external program, and have firefox reload them instantly when I change them.

I have an external application and with it i want to change proxy settings and have firfox use them instantly.

Can this be accomplished? From the registry maybe...?

I've been using Flock, but they've quit supporting it, so now I need to pick a new browser and import my bookmarks from Flock; I have 3.06. When I searched help for how to import bookmarks, I got a bunch of stuff about how 4.0 doesn't import, but didn't see anything about how it works in 3.06. Thanks.

we followed the directions on the uninstall firefox web browser page. including the part where you go to the uninstall folder on the c: drive and use the helper application to uninstall firefox. this does not work because a popup box displays an error message saying "can't initialize plugin please try again later." we tried restarting the computer and redoing all these exact steps again only to get the same problems and error messages.

I have a MacBook Pro running 10.5.8. Firefox 3.0.6 is installed. When I try to update I get a message saying that I do not have sufficient priviledges to complete part of the operation. I take that to mean a folder containing part of the application Firefox is read only rather than read and write. I know how to change that but I've looked at the obvious Firefox folder but don't know where else to look for the offending folder.

The machine is a SLES11 running on x86_64 architecture. Firefox is version 3.0.6 (from the SLES11 installation DVD). I have installed jre-6u25 under /usr/java. I have restarted Firefox after the installation. No Java plugin shows up under Tools/Add-ons/Plugins.

What do I need to do to make it show up?
