when using an Adobe flash page a small window appears requiring a download (usually 10kb) to get past the grayed-out covering of the flash item. Ad blocker can stop download window, but then the flash page will not appear for use. Quote:

"Adobe Flash Player Settings Local Storage cdn.arenaconnect.arkadiumhosted.com is requesting permission to store information on your computer. Requested: up to 10 KB Currently Used: 0 kb (with) Allow & Deny buttons "

Of course, the "request" makes it impossible to get past the Deny to the flash page.

Hi,

My problem "was" that I was working on Firefox at my home and at my office. As computers are fast these days, I am in habit of opening large number of tabs in firefox. And I always wanted to open the same tabs at my office which I was opening at my home and vice versa. I further wanted to clean the browsing history after leaving the computer at my work as well as home.

While searching through the forums, I reached to this thread:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/960096

And to my satisfaction, the exact answer was not there.

Anyways, doing a little more search, I found why I will never stop loving Firefox and its because of its wonderful "addons".

So here I re-write the problem,

I want to save the addresses of different tabs opened in my Firefox and save them to a file that can be re-opened by Firefox on the same computer or on a different computer with the option to clean the browser history after leaving the computer.

Solution: "Session Manager Addon" of firefox.

Steps to the solution:

1. Download and install a firefox addon called "session manager".

URL: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-manager/

2. After installing this addon, go to Firefox -> Sesion Manager -> Session Manager -> Session Manager Options. (or to Tools -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Session Manager Options)

Go to "Advanced" tab.

Now change the default location for saving the session. Say you name it to your desktop.

Now, you have "Session Manager" addon installed, the default location of saving the session file is known to you (say your desktop).

3. Now go to, "Firefox -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Save Session" and give your session a name under the option "Save the current session as". (or to "Tools -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Save Session")

4. Suppose you give your session a name called "New Session". In your default location of saving the session (say your desktop), you will get a file named "New Session.session"

5. Now this file is the key. It's a small file and you can simply email it to yourself or carry it to your work with you.

6. Just place this file at same location on the different computer and repeat Steps 1 and 2.

7. Now Session Manager is installed and configured on the other computer and the file has been copied to the desktop of this other computer.

8. Go to Firefox -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Load Session (or to Tools -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Load Session) and the saved session will be loaded to the different computer by Firefox.


Now, how this addon can help someone?

1. It is extremely useful for people like me who are addicted to opening many many tabs at once and want to resume working from the same set of tabs whether they are at home, office or some other place.

2. Suppose, you are surfing some personal sites that you do not want other people to know and you can't bookmark those sites. You are on a different computer, say at your office and want to clean the browsing history too.

The best option in such cases is to save the session completely and re-load it on a different computer.

I personally found "Session Manager" addon better than "copy urls expert".

The only improvement I would like to see is that Firefox itself should allow multiple tabs to saved to a file that can be opened by Firefox just like we open a saved HTML page.

And thanks to Michael Kraft for creating this wonderful addon... Really liked and I hope my post help others.

thanks

After Window 7 update, forced to reinstall firefox 26, restore session button is available but doesn't work even though sessionstore file is there

I am running Firefox 26 on Windows 7. Last night Windows needed to do some security updates so I closed Firefox as I normally do by using the exit tab and let Windows go ahead with its updates. This morning I found that Firefox had been deleted. I looked to see that my sessionstore.js file from last night still existed and it does. When Firefox came up all of my tabs were gone, also my bookmarks, add-ons, etc. I clicked on "restore previous session" but nothing happens. I have a bookmarks file from last night in the bookmarks folder, and the sessionstore.js file is dated from last night when I closed Firefox in a normal manner. I'm stumped. Firefox didn't crash, I closed it as I always do before I allowed Microsoft to update Windows and reboot. What am I missing/doing wrong? I'm leaving this session open so that I can continue to have access to that sessionstore file, plus I have copied it to a folder I use for these kinds of disasters. This necessary windows update also deleted my MailWasher Pro program, changed the way that Windows Explorer operates and other "fun" surprises. Thanks Microsoft. It is barely possible that I can recreate my tabs and that would be hugely aggravating, but I have no way of re-creating all of my bookmarks. I need help.

I was sure that the new firefox 40 was the problem. To make it worse in chrome the videos were not lagging at all, but when I restarted my computer it failed to restart properly. I saw this kind of problems with ram sticks before so I said to give it a try. The sticks were very hot and one of them showed signs of oxidation. I've cleaned them with a eraser and now the computer works great again.

I have 4gb ddr2 800 adata vitesta in 4x1gb sticks.

Just a thought. I had a Complete Theme that I really liked called Silvermel. With the latest updates it is no longer compatible with Firefox. I went to Complete Themes in Firefox Addons to see if I could find something else I liked and found that 95% of them are not compatible. It isn't as bad with my other addons as with Complete Themes but I still loose the use of 1 or 2 addons when Firefox is updated.

Firefox is always talking about how customizable they are and then their advances render it less so. Improving things to the point where you are dis-improving them it is counterproductive. Would you ask the Firefox developers not the change the things that addons need to be usable? If they can't do that then they shouldn't update it. Thank you!

This scenario is on an appliance with a locked UI and no internet access. This scenario is not on the laptop.

Background info: - Linux embedded system - Firefox browser is being used to for local console display connecting to local web server on the appliance - Since this is an embedded appliance, there is no guarantee that an internet connection is available - Options have been set on the Firefox browser so that the end user does not have access to the Add-ons menu. Referred to as "kiosk" mode.

The scenario is to enable and allow Java on the browser.

Typically, on a laptop, the Java plug-in can be activated by navigating to http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp. The user is prompted to activate the Java plug-in.

On this embedded appliance, there is no internet connection available, and the user does not have access to the Add-ons menu.

Is there a scripted method to perform the same steps? Activating Java creates a copy of the pluginreg.dat, but there are other settings that are required to completely activate the Java plug-in. Are there preferences that can be set, or other scripts run to perform this action for this scenario on an embedded appliance running Linux?

Thanks for any info.

Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (osu) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

You might need to install other software to open this address.
