Is there a way to set a cookie to be stored permanently without going into Tools | Options | etc and then manually typing in the URL?

I have cookies set to expire when I close Firefox, but want some select sites to have permanent cookies. I can make this work by by going into the Tools | Options | Privacy | Cookie Exceptions dialogue box and then manually typing in the URLs for the site I want to have permanently stored cookies. But it seems like if the website is currently open in a tab, I should be able to click something, somewhere, like"Allow current website to have permanent cookies".

Is that possible?

I recently updated Firefox. The Bookmarks menu shows a new menu item called "All Bookmarks". It appears to be a copy of the bookmarks. When I try to add a new bookmark, the All Bookmarks folder is the only one shown in the dialog. I tried deleting the All Bookmarks folder, but then nothing is shown in the dialog when I try to add a new bookmark.

If I do add a new bookmark, it is put under the All Bookmarks folder and does not show up under the top-level item I want it under. Any ideas about what I can do to fix this.

The update went normally without my intervention.

Thanks

A spam/malware site has gotten itself logged as one of my home pages, and I want to reset my home pages back to a default. The ordinary way to do that is to use the Tools menu, but you have to let the home pages open first in order to do it that way. I don't want this site to open again. It pops up very suspicious windows when it opens. How can I reset my home page from outside Firefox?

There seems to be a javascript issue on youtube (+ other sites), as nothing happens when I click my username "tab" next to Sign Out, where a menu should expand. I've unintalled FF, reinstalled, removed most addons, and checked settings. Works in Chrome.

Also on youtube there's an issue with "James Blunt, live from London" bar at the top of the page not disappearing when I click the X.

Why does Firefox 3.6.12 truncate attachment file names containing blank spaces (Windows)?

Whenever someone sends me an attachment and I save it, Firefox truncates the file name if the file name contains blank spaces. I am running 3.6.12 under Windows 2000 SP4 right now. But this behavior has persisted for a long time, with earlier versions of Firefox and under Windows XP. Unfortunately, I cannot control the names of attachments people send me. As an example, if someone sends me a file named "file name.doc" (without quotes, of course), Firefox either displays it (via Micro$oft Word) or saves it as "file.doc". If I receive "filename.doc", that's how it gets saved.

This new interface (FF version 3) is far more comprehensive than anything I need. Mine was well organized, so I never LOST anything, and this one's just too complicated for me to even figure out how to tidy up. AND I miss the 'Personal Toolbar Folder.

Any add-ons, tweaks, fairy dust to make it rejoin me in the past?

I cannot change my cookie settings because the Tools dropdown only contains a few of its normal options. And when I try to copy selected text, the right click menu pops up blank or else goes blank when I scroll over it to try and copy or paste. The other menus appear to be normal. I have been mysterily loosing some of the cookies I need for logins, etc. but I can't get to the advance options to modify my cookies.

I have done complete scans with both Norton and Microsoft Security Essentials and found no malware.

I was looking for a trail map, and received a message that I should download ALOT first. I did so, without knowing what it was. I now want to get ride of it. I am using Windows 7 on my HP computer. I went in to the control panel and looked for ALOT on the uninstall programs list, but it wasn't there. Then I followed the instructions on ALOT help to uninstall. It told me goodbye and sorry I was leaving, but ALOT IS STILL ON MY SCREEN. How do I get rid of it?

I was forced to upgrade to the new 3.6.12 version. In the older version I had, if the program crashed or if I deliberately stopped Firefox by stopping it in Processes with End Task, when I restarted Firefox a box would come up asking me if I want to start a new session or go back to the old session. Well the default now seems to be with the new version it will take you back to where you were when it crashed or was stopped via processes and doesn't give you a choice. I have searched Tools multiple times and cannot find anything that will give me the option described above.

The thing is, I will stop Firefox by using End Task in processes when I come across a page/site that pops up a box asking me if i really want to navigate away from the page, rather than clicking on the pop up box or a site that starts popping up windows all over the place.

Can someone direct me to where I can tell my browser to ask me if I want to start a new session when this happens? And please tell me why .. any time a software is upgraded or new and improved, it always ends up taking away choices?

I have read some of the answers about this and I have made adjustments as they talked about an none of them worked.

I have a fresh install of 3.6.12 on a newly built machine. In Facebook & Twitter and any translator page and many other sites and or Apps, I end up with that square box with a hex number (I see it called) I have made the adjustments in "allow sites to use there fonts" and some other ideas and each time I have restarted FF and even the machine a few times after an adjustment.

I use translator pages often and none of them will display a proper characters.

Please, I need to solve this Problem!

Thank You
