I am so sorry if my english is so bad. I have opened websites that have given a notice as an unsave website. I have downloaded several file from those websites. A few moment late, I realised that I have done a big mistake and I overwhelmed with fear about my computer security. How can I reactivate the feature to block an unsave website? As a additional information, after I realised the "stupid things" that I had done before, I tried to reenter the websites but the notice did not appear.

Thank you so much. sincerly

Firefox seems to be ignoring my Cache-control directives

As I understand it to prevent a page from being cached when using the https protocol you need to include the following directives in the header

<meta http-equiv="Cache-control" content="no-cache"> <meta http-equiv="Cache-control" content="no-store"> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache"> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0">

I did a test, creating two html files, one called uncached.html with these directives and another called cached.html without them.

I called both of them using https protocol and both appeared when I view the cache by typing in the URL about:cache.

I then exited Firefox, started it again and typed in about:cache and both urls were still there.

By way of comparison I tried it under IE. cached.html was cached, uncached.html was not.

In Chrome neither was cached. (when called using http instead of https both were cached.)

How do I view ALL dates and time in history that a website was visited, not just the LAST time the site was visited? I can see a total of the number of times a site was visited, but I need to know all the dates and times that site was visited, not just the last time it was visited. I have Firefox 17.0.1 on a Mac.

I keep getting a software update for security and stability for Firefox. But it is telling me that two of my add-ons are incompatible and will be disabled. Problem is, I use these add-ons on a regular basis and I need them. I don't want to risk losing them and not being able to get them back. I don't like Explorer at all, but if there is no way around this then I will have to switch back to them which will not make me happy. I really do prefer Firefox because it is by far and away a better product. However, I also need my BitComet downloader and my Divx. What should I do here?

The error message I get when trying to copy info to my clipboard from blueletterbible.org is, "Your current Internet Security settings do not allow data copying to clipboard."

Have been copying and pasting from this site almost daily for months with no problems and suddenly today it gives me this error message.

I followed the instructions for Firefox by going to about:config and entering in the info as posted.

signed.applets.codebase_principal_support Status: User Set, Type: Boolean, Value: True

I have actually done this before and it has always worked when this error message comes up. Am not sure why it is not working now.

Thank you in advance for your help.

How to stop the web site redirection at its background mode? I have already checked the feature but it still went youtube in google search?

It is always found my webpage have been redirected to other web pages at its browser background (until I need to check the cookies so that I can be able to know where it have been redirected to at its background (hidden) after browsing websites). For example, in a simple demonstration, during the google search or going to my email account, it always goes to youtube at its background even though there has been a warning showing on the firefox page during the browse. However, the time allowed me to response is always too short, just one or 2 seconds. Even I have already clicked to stop it (not clicked "allowed" but "X"), it still was redirected.

How do i retrieve a password that Firefox has saved for a site that I have bookmarked if it's not showing up in Firefox/Security/ShowPasswords?

I am running the latest version of Firefox on my Windows XP machine. I have a bookmark on my bookmarks toolbar called 'Patrick's Hotmail'. When I click on this it takes me straight to my window's live hotmail inbox. (i.e. It's saved my user name and password and bypasses any login prompts). I've forgotten my password and have no other way of retrieving it. I have looked in Options/Security/ShowPasswords - but there is no listing for Windows Live or Hotmail. I have double checked this but there is nothing that refers back to that bookmark. Is my password saved in a cookie or some other sort of cache. Is there any way that I can view it somewhere? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Not sure how it happened but now I keep getting this dialogue box saying "please enter master password for FIPS140 Cryptographic,Key and" I have never set up a master password, and don't want one. It won't let me open up anything, neither in firefox or thunderbird. Won't even let me off the screen until I give a password, just sits there. I have seen this question asked in other sites and forums but there are no answers that a layperson can understand Please help. Thank you very much.

Last week for a short time Firefox was requiring me to enable third party cookies when visiting sites that previously didn't require 3rd party cookies. I contacted the sites and they never required 3rd party cookies to be enabled. I did detect and delete a Google cookie through Firefox preference/privacy routines.

Was there an interim release that fixed this in Firefox since I'm not required to enable 3rd party cookies? Can I be confident that I don't have undetected Google cookies in my Mac?

Thanks, Tim S.

I have an application which stores manifest for offline use. Now firefox asking for a confirm message that if i want to allow or not. If i say 'allow' the application works fine. but if i say 'not now' or 'never for this site' the application stops. What is the event to check that user deny to allowing store data. i used different option like - cached,noupdate,error,uncached,idle,obsolete. as an example- applicationCache.addEventListener('idle', function () {});

but none of this says that user deny to allow. Please tell me the option that i can check that user does not want to allow and do my rest work.
