I'd like to add a couple of lines of Javascript that will automatically log me in my email once the page loads (my provider has no "remember me" option. I found an extension [an extension](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/javascript/) that allows me to do this, but unfortunately, my email provider has a strict [CSP](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/CSP), and the extension is blocked.

Is there any way around this? Can I tell Firefox to ignore the CSP for this one webpage, or maybe run some Javascript automatically via dev tools?

In my main profile, restore session stopped working. The option is set, but it doesn't work. It worked for 3 years since I created this profile, but now it doesn't work.

Recently, this profile has been crashing regularly on quit. I quit (CRTL-Q) and the window does away, then 10 seconds later, I get a pop up message saying that firefox crashed.

Just a moment ago, I had a system crash and now this profile refuses to restore my session. When I started it, there was a new session and all the backup session files contain new sessions, not my tabs. Lost all tabs.

Anyone else seeing this?

This sometimes happens for example while filling in a form on a web page. I intend to copy/paste text into an input box of the form but I accidentally paste it outside of the box. This causes Firefox to perform an undesired search based on my text.

Can this be turned off?

I recently upgraded from 16.0.2 to 17.0. The fonts used by firefox in the toolbar and the names on the tabs have changed to a dirty, bold look. I do not like it. In 16.0.2 I am using the default theme. In 17.0 I am also using the default theme of 17.0. I am running Windows 7. Since my home and work machines have similar configurations, the work version (still 16.0.2) has the nicer looking fonts. If this antiquated system allowed one to attach screen shots, I could visually show the difference brought about by the upgrade to 17.0

How do I get back the application fonts that were used in 16.0.2?
