I recently updated my Firefox to 3.5.9 for Google pack, after doing so Firefox would only open in safe mode. So I started in safe mode that one time. Everafter, when starting firefox it always opens a dialog window about safe mode, I click the option to reset the toolbars and restart, and it starts normally. I'd like to make it stop opening with this dialog, and just open normally without asking about safe mode.

Hello! When I search for a bookmark in the "Organize bookmarks" panel by using a tag search, I want to see in which folder the bookmark that I found i situated. I saw there are some extensions that provide this, but they are for older versions of the browser. My version is the following: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1.9) Gecko/20100330 Fedora/3.5.9-1.fc11 Firefox/3.5.9

I am running firefox version 3.5.9 in Kubuntu9.10. I know that version 3.6.6 of firefox is available. I checked automatic update status with the step-by-step guide in your site. When I click on "Help" in firefox, I am getting a total of 7 choices as against the 9 choices shown at your site. The first two and the last three as shown in your site are there. The third choice in my window is "Report Web Forgery" and the fourth one is "Report a Problem". So, how will I update the 3.5.9 version to 3.6.6 version? Although I can download the 9.8MB file at your site, I do not know how to "RUN" it on Linux. Please help.

I'm trying to use Firefox/Windows with SQUID proxy and Basic authentication. Due to our organization policy we have to use full user's names in international (i18n) encoding (Russian Cyrillic in our case).

Unfortunately, Firefox sends user authentication in Russian Cyrillic (as answer for proxy's 407) in VEIRD chrset encoding.

HTTP request to proxy with authentification: = User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; ru; rv:1.9.2.6) Gecko/20100625 Firefox/3.6.6 Accept: text/css,*/*;q=0.1 Accept-Language: ru,en-us;q=0.7,en;q=0.3 Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate Accept-Charset: windows-1251,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7 Keep-Alive: 115 Proxy-Connection: keep-alive Proxy-Authorization: Basic EDQ8OD04QUJAMEI+QDpGbHZieQ==

Autorization decoding:

$ echo EDQ8OD04QUJAMEI+QDpGbHZieQ== | base64 -d | od -t x1 0000000 10 34 3c 38 3d 38 41 42 40 30 42 3e 40 3a 46 6c 0000020 76 62 79 0000023

The name:pass entered was Adminstraror:admin (where Administrator is in Russian) The name becomes junk, seems a second byte from the the UTF-8 w/o high bit.


Other browsers, Google Chome as exampe, use UTF-8 for username encoding:

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/533.4 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/5.0.375.99 Safari/533.4 Proxy-Authorization: Basic 0JDQtNC80LjQvdC40YHRgtGA0LDRgtC+0YA6YWRtaW4= Accept: text/css,*/*;q=0.1 Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate,sdch Accept-Language: ru-RU,ru;q=0.8,en-US;q=0.6,en;q=0.4 Accept-Charset: windows-1251,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.3 ===

$ echo 0JDQtNC80LjQvdC40YHRgtGA0LDRgtC+0YA6YWRtaW4= | base64 -d | od -t x1 0000000 d0 90 d0 b4 d0 bc d0 b8 d0 bd d0 b8 d1 81 d1 82 0000020 d1 80 d0 b0 d1 82 d0 be d1 80 3a 61 64 6d 69 6e 0000040

Chrome uses good Cyrillic in UTF-8 as you see.

When I click a download link pointing to an EXE file, how do I run (ie. Open) it directly?

I know this is possible because I have another computer that does allow it, without additional plugins. The only difference is that the other computer started out with a 2yo version of FF and this computer was re-installed a year ago so it started out with a newer FF. Both have been constantly updated to the newest version. With the 2yo version I have always been able to run EXE files throughout the lifetime.

When I go to print something, a dialog showing a list of printer options shows up. One of the printers is from an old office. Firefox spends 20s or so trying to query this printer over the network, and hangs in the meantime. I would like to remove this printer from the list, but have been unable to figure out how to do so. Manually removing all references to the printer from the ~/.mozilla configuration files while firefox isn't running has not helped.
