I would like to activate some of the Firefox functions under program control. - What are the command like parameters that I can use? - Is there an API to access the domain model, or an OLE or ActiveX object, to access the entry fields in html or script-generated entry fields and command buttons? Where can I read more about that?

I am a new developer and I'm trying to learn how cookies work, but I don't know how to view what the actual cookie value is, so that I can check if I did it correctly. I see where you can set the defaults you want and enable or disable cookies, but where can you view the content in FireFox browser? I know in Google Chrome you can see all the cookies and their values in settings, content, cookies, view all. Thanx, Gil

I wish to download and install Firefox 52 ESR for a PC with Windows XP. But, I cannot download it on that WinXP PC. I must download it on another PC running Win 10. It should be an .exe (or somethng like that) file, which I can then transfer to the XP PC and run it to install FF 52 ESR.

If I try to download FF on the Win 10 PC, it downloads (I think) the version that is best for Win 10 PC. I do not see any place where I can specify that I want FF 52 ERS, and not the version for Win 10. That is the problem.

Please advise how I can do the above.

Thanks in advance

Hi There,

As of today I seem to be having a strange issue with Firefox 31, I'm unsure as to when this problem began as I haven't developed on this project for around 2 weeks. I have a PHP Development server running on localhost port 8000 using the following command: "bin\php -S localhost:8000 -c php.ini" (without quotes)

Upon trying to connect to this server via Firefox I'm presented with "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 127.0.0.1:8000." the message adjusts to show "localhost:8000" when connecting via that method, I've tried running Firefox in Safe Mode, reinstalling Firefox and also changing the network settings to "No Proxy" from "Using system proxy settings".

I'm able to connect through Chrome, IE and also by running a cURL command.
