For example, if I want to sign into gmail, it asks for the username. As soon as I type in the first letter, it gives me a selection which it stored. Once I made a mistake and typed my password in there which also begins with the same letter. How do I clear the list? Actually, how can I set Firefox so that it doesn't automatically store that information.

I have used the Belkin transfer cable which did not transfer the bookmarks. I can't find them on my C Drive. I'd like to transfer them manually using a thumb drive but can't without locating the file with the bookmarks.

Firefox and its bookmarks are on the original computer. At this time I can't use the synch function, but must manually transfer the bookmarks. How do I recognize in the files and copy on an external device and then transfer

Going to a news or weather site and seeing the news or weather from 3 days ago is ridiculous. I erased all history, I set private browsing, told Firefox to not remember history, all in vain. It still displays the old content until I refresh.

I would like to completely disable the "this connection is untrusted dialog." I am an administrator and deal with many intranet sites. It is not cost effective to set an exception for each site. Corporate standards require us to use either IE, or Firefox, and I would prefer not to have to use IE.

To be clear: I am not looking for a solution that lessens the amount of overall clicks, like in browser.ssl override behavor in "about:config" nor am I looking for an Add-on (like "remember certificate exception"). I am looking for a way to remove the "this connection is untrusted" dialog completely.

The FireFox' disk cache foler is set to D:\Cache (I set it so from about:config).

I cleared the disk cache, watched a YouTube video (almost 2 minute long), then looked into D:\Cache. But the video I had watched was not there! (I found two .SWF files. But their sizes were smaller than 250K. And, stand-alone SWF players couldn't play them. Therefore, they can't be YouTube videos.)

So, where does Firefox cache videos?
