I can use Alt+D to get to the Location Bar to type in a URL, but is there a way I can then go to the default text box, to enter data, once the search engine page has been opened, by using a short-cut key? I didn't recognize any of the commands in the Shortcut Keys page as being what I want.

I am running Firefox 11.0 & Aurora on a Mac with OS X 10.6.8. I used to be able to download pdf files, such as my bank staements, direct from websites with no problem on either browser. Recently, when clicking on the link, the dialog box asking whether I want to save it or open it no longer appears and nothing else happens. Can't download. My wife has the same problem with a new Mac with OS x 10.7 Lion. I am also running an older version of Firefox 3.6.28 on a Mac with PPC processor & OS X 10.5.8. With this I have no problems downloading the pdf files I want. I have compared the Firefox preferences between the two machines and made them the same. Also found the Unable to download or save files link on Firefox Help and I have Reset the browser.download configs as it suggested. And nothing has changed. What to do? Anybody out there can help me? Thanks in advance.

My home page is the Firefox default page with the Google searchbar. I like getting occasional messages from Firefox when I log in so I don't want to change my homepage. However, when I use the searchbar on my homepage only, I get the unsatisfactory AVG Secure Search results.

UPDATE: I now realize all the troubleshooting information I included in my original question appears under the "More System Details" link next to the question, not in the body of the question. I have copied it here to make it easier to see what I have already done to try to solve the problem, as well as describe the one clue I have that may be relevant:

I have tried all the fixes on various threads, but my about:config is now pristine (no avg or isearch mentions; keyword.url is default). Closest solution is that at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/866327 , which requires changing my home page.

Oddly, AVG Secure Search is not a problem when I use the Google toolbar or search from the Google website, only when I use the search bar that appears on my home (start) page. This is true even when I return to my home page--if I search from the Google search bar in the middle of the page, I get sent to AVG Safe Search. (isearch.avg.com).

I read in one thread a suggestion to delete my chromeappsstore.sqlite file in my Profile folder. As promised, Firefox created a new one when I restarted it; however, the search bar in the middle of my home home page did not work at all. Tried this three times before restoring my original.

I do not have an application that will open a sqlite file, but I tried doing so in Excel and found a cell containing the following:

?emoh.:moz-safe-aboutsearch-engine{"name":"AVG Secure Search","searchUrl":"http://isearch.avg.com/search?cid={7A3C25A0-E345-4507-AA31-D98F596A81A9}&mid=c48135235ba247d18ac1d14b344db451-addd29eab2809954d5abdf0b991a5b911a297819&ds=is015&lang=en&v=10.0.0.7&pr=sa&d=&sap=dsp&q=_searchTerms_"}

I have no clue what that means, but it is the only thing I can find related to Firefox that still mentions AVG and isearch.avg.com.

At this point my best guess (but it is a guess) is that the chromeappsstore.sqlite file is a key to the complete solution, but I do not have enough knowledge to go beyond and address it. I appreciate any help you anyone can offer.

Здравствуйте! У меня не воспроизводит аудиозаписи на сайте Вконтакте. При нажатии на кнопку "воспроизвести" не происходит никакого действия. Firefox, просто напросто, не реагирует.

Я проверила все плагины и дополнения. При их отключении ничего не меняется-музыка так и не воспроизводится.

At work i'm surfing through a proxy, which uses it's own certificates on all https sites. The result of this is that each time I want to access a https site I got a certificate warning (sec_error_untrusted_issuer). Normally I can just ignore the warning and add an exception (not an ideal solution, but it works). But sometimes it's not possible to add an exception. The button is there, but the popup window says that the certificate is valid and no exception is needed and the confirm button is disabled. Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/KZBO5.png (in swedish, but i guess you can see the disabled button anyway).

When this happens I have to use IE for a couple of days until the problem solves it self. I have tried both to restart firefox and the computer whitout any success.

Any ideas?

On my home computer, a fresh Firefox 11 install has the 3D button, but on my work computer where I just upgraded from 10 to 11, the button is not there.

Are there some prerequisites for the 3D DOM inspector that I don't know about? Is there a way to find out why it's not showing up, or to forcibly enable it?

Everyone knows that Firefox keeps a history of sites you've visited. Also, by right-clicking on the FF search box, it allows you to "Clear Search History". These are items that you have searched for in the past - but not necessarily clicked through to the results. (where are they kept?)

What I want is to SHOW Search History. In other words, I want to see (and select from) a list of phrases I've entered in the search box. If this isn't available as a feature it'd be a great plugin idea.

Hard drive is still connected to my computer, though the PC has had a mother brd, CPU and RAM upgrade: Because of the upgrade could not load window, though the Windows file is still available. New HDD with windows installed, New install. of FF 11.0. Following search suggestions I can find the new Profile, but not the one on the old drive. I can access my Mozilla file in Program Files (x86), but find now appdata etc. Yes, I know, it was really stupid not to backup this stuff before the new hardware install, but didn't think the hardware change was going hose my W7 install so badly. Thanks for any help in advance.

I don't want to permanently uninstall adobe flash--I merely want to disable it at my discretion. Is there a method to do this? Google Chrome allows you to disable and re-enable add-ons/extensions/plug-ins quite easily without uninstalling them and then re-enable them just as easily. If this option isn't available in FF, I'd like to request it. Thanks.
