Как известно появилась поисковая система "WEBALTA", которая автоматически стала стартовой страницей. Попытки установить "Яндекс" на стартовую страницу оканчиваются провалом. Прошу вас решить эту проблему, поскольку я и члены моей семьи предпочитают использовать "Яндекс" (более привычный и удобный для нас способ)

I have a young child who uses Firefox. A few years ago I was able to permanently hide the navigation bar to prevent curious browsing (my child is only allowed to use the Bookmarks). I believe I did this through using about:config. Using View->Toolbars->NavigationBar is too easy to figure out. Anyway, my child's computer finally gave up the ghost and I have a new one in which I am trying to child proof. I can't find the appropriate setting in about:config. Can someone help me?

I've done some research. I know about (about:config) and (about:cache). Maybe the weirdest thing is that (about:cache) shows nothing about where the temporary files cache is located. List Cache Entries shows all of the temporary files, but still no clue about where those files are located? [since "List Cache Entries" is under "Memory cache device", that's not helpful.]

my cache settings

I'm trying to move the temporary files cache to drive F. Finding their current location might help.

Please advise. Thanks.

How to force Firefox to ask to "Remember Password"

There seem to be a few threads about this topic, however none have answered/resolved my questions.

I set up an account on an airline website to manage frequent flier miles etc., and the first time I logged in, Firefox dutifully asked if I would like the page to "Remember Password?". I selected "Remember Password" and navigated around the site a bit. I then closed my browser. I opened it again, went back to the site, and my password was supplied, however not my username. So I went to Tools-->Options-->Security-->Saved Passwords and cleared the entry for this site from the list.

Why doesn't Firefox ask me to "Remember Password?" anymore? It is not on my Exceptions list. I have cleared cookies etc., but checked all settings, and still, the page will not ask me to "Remember Password?" again, even though it did the first time and worked.

How can I FORCE Firefox to "Remember Password?" Is there a way I can just input it, or at least prompt Firefox to ask me again?

I've seen quite a few threads about this on here, and I'm now wondering if this actually ought to be reported as a bug...

I've always liked Firefox's better privacy options compared to other browsers, but this particular issue kind of renders them useless.

If I go to Tools>Clear Recent History>Everything (with ALL boxes checked) this does not have any effect whatsoever on the list of recently closed tabs & windows.

ie, If I then go to History>Recently Closed Tabs> all the previous sites I have visited are still there, despite having cleared "everything" from history.

Other threads I've seen on this topic, replies often suggest fiddling with settings in about:config or deleting/renaming sessionstore files...

Does anyone know of a more straightforward way to *actually* clear all browsing history?

Having an option to clear everything from the history is pretty useless if the next person using the computer can simply look at the 'recently closed windows' list and immediately see the sites you've been reading..

In older versions of Firefox and in all versions of I.E., there is a link called "Tools" under which we can find "Internet Options," so that we can change our home page, etc. The last two versions of Firefox have hidden this link, and I'd like to know where to find it.
