I tried the two methods I've heard so far to disable the new firefox 19 pdf viewr: -in about:config set pdfjs.disable to true -options>Applications>set pdf view application

The trouble: when I set the viewing application for pdf to Foxit, firefox automatically downloads the pdf to open it in the separate application. Up until firefox 19, the Foxit reader application would open in the browser. Since Foxit does not have a firefox add-on, how do I disable the firefox 19 pdf viewer and use Foxit Reader to open pdfs as a new tab in the browser?

My computer, or the software (windows 7) crashed yesterday. I got my system back up and running through HP tech support. But, now I have the problem of trying to restore all my bookmarks that I had with firefox before the crash. Unfortunately, HP's tech support can't seem to help that issue, even though I did do a backup on a DVD prior to the fix. Being I suspect firefox has a way of remembering my bookmarks, how in the world can I now reinstall those bookmarks, and I had plenty, to my now repaired windows 7 system? I'm sure hoping, there has to be a way to restore all of my previous bookmarks! Can anyone help?

Firefox does not trust a specific secure website that I know is secure, but it does trust other secure websites. Also, Internet Explorer trusts this website and Firefox on another computer trusts this same website. When I try to connect Firefox tells me that it does not have a valid certificate (even though I know one exists) and that I would have to make an exception to connect. Is there some way I can correct this and get the proper certificate into this particular Firefox program?

I typed in the website (www.n2yo.com) and pressed return to open it. Unfortunately it just keeps acting as if it is refreshing and not opening the webpage. Ie the image to the left of the url keeps flashing in alternation with a square like shape, and the progress circle and line at the top just keeps flashing and resetting.

It worked fine yesterday. Certain parts of the website worked fine earlier today also. But now every variation of a page within that site seems to be doing the same thing.

Thoughts? Guidance?

Like a lot of others, I have had terrible problems with this damn incredibar thing that has somehow gotten onto my laptop. Thanks to the other threads in the forums I have managed to get Firefox back to what I originally had, (remove webassistent, check about:config etc...) but I still have one concern. When I search for incredibar in about:config, I still get a whole load of extensions.incredibar results. I am not very technically literate when it comes to these things but is there anyway I can remove these or are they just remnants that I am better off leaving alone? The incredibar extension doesn't seem to come up in the list under the Firefox Tab. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have an issue with one of my Firefox extensions/plugins, it's called MyStart: Incredibar, and I basically installed unintentionally when I installed a program with a Brothersoft downloader/launcher. I tried uninstalling Mystart and I tried permanently stopping the service that updates the MyStart incredibar plugin. What it basically does is, when I open a new tab in Firefox, it opens some sort of website, I don't have a problem with it loading a search engine, the only problem I have regarding the search engine is that every time I open a new tab, it actually loads a new page. I even tried resetting the certain figures in about:config which helped temporarily, but after I restart Firefox then it still runs the search engine when I open a new tab. I use Eset Nod32 and Anti-Malmwarebytes as my system's defense, and I've tried scanning with both of them but they don't help at all, does anyone have information that will permanently remove this plugin from my PC?

Screenshot of this problem can be found HERE

This question has been asked before but is locked so I'm having to raise a new query. The original query was: "When firefox is opened to Google's home page, it does not set focus to the text box. I have to click in or select the text box before my typing shows up." The user who raised that query was on v4.7, I think; I'm using v13.0.1 so why does the problem still exist? I open Google along with the BBC home page when I start Firefox. If I open Google in a new tab the focus is set correctly on the text box. This is very annoying. Anyone have any ideas on how to get round this?

Before I dispose of this browser forever, can someone explain why Firefox will not allow the current tab to be closed, but instead I am only given the option of closing all tabs. Please, I need a fix if Firefox is going to exit on my computer. I am tired of entertaining this issue every time I go to a webpage. Do not respond if you believe this can be solved by clicking on a red X.

I have set my school proxy settings and use them very often. On certain websites, the ads keep using these proxy settings (probably to show me ads according to my preferences or I don't know), and I get the "Authentication required" message box over and over again until the page finishes loading. It's annoying because if I have many tabs open and am currently on another page while the website with the ads is loading, I get brought back to that page to authenticate. I can get asked 3 times to authenticate while this one page is loading, and it takes forever to load because of that. I do not want to disable my proxy settings because I use it very often. I have tried unchecking the "Accept cookies from websites" box and nothing happens, it still does the same. I want these ads to stop going through my proxy settings. How do I do that?

I have a web site and had a landing page created for it. As soon as a user hits the home page a pop up shows itself and asks the user to confirm ok or no. If they click ok they are permitted into the site and can browse freely. If they click no they are taken to another site.

Here is my problem: When I go to my site, the landing page shows itself. I click ok and the landing page goes away. I am then at my homepage. As soon as I click on a link in the homepage, the landing page pops back up again asking me to verify again. I click ok and I'm still on the homepage. This happens no matter what link I click. Over and over again that page pops up, I click OK and end up at my homepage. I can't go anywhere on my own site!

I have a friend who has tested this out on 4 different browsers including ff. This does not happen to him. He gets the landing page as soon as he hits the site. He clicks ok and the page is gone and stays gone. He can navigate all over the place and that landing page pop up will not show up.

Meanwhile, I can't go anywhere on my own site!

Any idea what's going on? Why does the landing page keep popping up after I've confirmed? This problem started today.

This used to work in Firefox but it doesn't now. I don't want to open a separate software on audio web sites such as Amazon and other sound and music sites. I want to click on the icon to listen to a sample and then just hear it play. I will add that on Internet Explorer and Google Chrome playing music this way works perfectly but I prefer to use Firefox as my main browser. It is many more clicks and response time delays to go to another software to listen and then have to back out (or close out) and return to where I was.
