I make use of an application that allows me to open a website in a frame within a tab. As long as i click on a link that let's me stay on that webpage the site stay's within the frame. But if the link revers to another website/url i get a new tab instead of the website being opened within the frame. I have figured out how to block opening a new tab or window, but i cannot find out if i can do the same with a frame.

I'd like to know if Firefox has found my css modifications. Is there a way of querying the location of the file that Firefox is using? I had a situation where Firefox didn't find my userContent.css. How would I diagnose this.

I find this code fragment around the internet. I attempted to run it, but got an error.

Components.classes["@mozilla.org/file/directory_service;1"].getService( Components.interfaces.nsIProperties).get("ProfD", Components.interfaces.nsIFile).path

I got these errors. Use of getPreventDefault() is deprecated. Use defaultPrevented instead. common-min.0cd8251fe9d4.js:4:25928 Error: Error retrieving geoip data

common-min.0cd8251fe9d4.js:10:17360

"The version of Tabzilla you are using is deprecated and will be removed in the future.

Please update to the new static version here: https://github.com/mozilla/tabzilla/" tabzilla.js:612:17 The Components object is deprecated. It will soon be removed.

I turned off SafeSearch to be able to access some adult sites that frankly I don't find terribly risky lol the point is I'm an adult and find it frustrating not to be able to use my computer as I did before with nothing but problems. Had the issue been addressed by simply turning off the safe search feature I would of considered the web search features fair and not felt annoyed and frustrated however I'm still locked in the Kiddie web search zone LOL

Bug report 1192060 - crash in _wcsicmp

I did notice an associated bug report for malware, but malwarebytes shows no problems. Oddly, my OS is shown as Win NT but I'm running Win7 Home Prem SP1.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I first clicked on this link to opt-out of their adverts, but since then, for several weeks now, every time I open Firefox on my chosen Home Page, it also opens a tab for this site. I have written to them several times but get nothing but a boiler-plate answer telling me how to opt out of their adverts. Any help would be appreciated.

I have an HP Pavillon, Juno email and Firefox is my default browser, At some point while accessing my email I will get the "unresponsive script" error and although it gives my options to continue, debug or close, none of it works and computer freezes. So I have to go to Task Manager and close everything down and start over. Very frustrating. It has also happened when I have been on other websites or with Internet Explorer. HP has tried fixing it, Juno has tried ....all to no avail. I've tried refresh, done many virus/malware scans, etc. It seems to me there is a plug-in or an add-in or some box somewhere not checked. Any ideas?

For the last 2 weeks google has decided to go very basic and the layout has changed (see attached screenshot if it ever loads). A lot of the search categories like Shopping, video, maps etc. have disappeared leaving only web and images. Images only gives about 30 results and they're not very accurate. Web search is hit and miss too with some very strange suggestions at times. I don't think I've done anything to the setting at least not intentionally and it's working fine in Chrome. I've tried restoring it and all the usual tricks but nothing has worked and I don't want to go back to Chrome crashing twice a day. I'm using win10

I've encountered this problem on multiple websites, but at the moment it's forums.nexusmods.com that's giving me trouble.

Trying to log in to the forums. The forum index page does not require HTTPS. I click "sign in", and a (probably AJAX) dialog appears for entering username and password. I enter them, and click the sign in button. Firefox tries to load the next page, which is an HTTPS page, and fails with a "Secure Connection Failed" error message (see link 1). There is no option to add a security exception.

If I go back to the forums' index page and attempt to force it to use HTTPS there (either by manually adding the "s" to the protocol in the address bar or with the "HTTPS Everywhere" extension), I get the same problem—Secure Connection Failed, no option for adding an exception.

I normally use Waterfox rather than regular Firefox, but I tried using Firefox to work around this problem, and both are exhibiting the exact same behavior.

However, the site works just fine in Chrome, even with HTTPS Everywhere active.
