I was able to turn off the Google safe search in old version but in new version I can’t. I tried IE and I can turn off safe search. I don’t know what is wrong and it’s so weird. When I go to the page of safe search setting it shows and says (Turn on safesearch to filter sexually explicit content from your search results.) but the safe search is on already. Please somebody say something I am driving out of my mind. And the stupid thing is that I have to use IE for searching and use Firefox for other stuffs.

Some web pages don't fit the screen width and Firefox user (me) has to scroll horizontally, which is very annoying: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kjyubp6f3z104ku/ScreenShot021.jpg Opera user, on the other hand, just clicks on the "Fit to width" button and everything looks great again: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hfsgl45f4d7uzgw/ScreenShot023.jpg

Is there a way to force web page text to wrap?

I cannot access GMail because I get the 'This Connection is Untrusted' page.

The Technical Details are:

mail.google.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is not trusted. (Error code: sec_error_untrusted_issuer)

If I click 'Add Exception', in Certificate Status, it says, 'This site provides valid, verified identification. There is no need to add an exception.'

My machine is on a corporate site, behind a firewall and proxy server. The proxy server substitutes the certificate so although it's called mail.google.com, it's issued by our internal CA. I've added the internal CA certificate to the Authorities list (by importing it to Servers and then selecting 'Trust the authenticity of this certificate').

How to stop a pop up - Goodgame Empire

While browsing the net, from email to facebook to youtube to forums, I get the same annoying pop up - Goodgame Empire -(http://lp.empire.goodgamestudios.com/?country=us&pid=248&camp=1&gid=12&cid=785514&tid=18668003%A0). A new tab will randomly open every 10-60 seconds, it seems to be triggered by me if I scroll down on a page, or select another tab, or click the address bar etc, but also just randomly as well. So far, while writing this it has opened about 15 new tabs.

I have searched google and haven't found any answers, I'm not a computer guru but I can do basic things. So far, I have deleted my history, cookies etc. Still pops ups. I tried blocking the website, still pops up. I downloaded some add on for firefox and it seemed to fix the problem about a week ago until today it started again, and I can't remember the name of the add-on and I don't know where to find it. I also ran my McAfee antivirus program and Malwarebytes and they found nothing.

I am out of ideas on how to fix this, it is extremely frustrating, please help, and remember I am not a computer genius.

Hi, I am owner of ikultura.net domain. Indeed a few monhs ago it has been attacked and some malware software has been installed in Joomla website. However, I did delete all content and there is only one file there (which is verification file of Google). So, there is no website there, no files and definitely no viruses.

I have reported it to Stopbadwage.org, also to Google and there are no issues from their sides. Also all other browsers like Opera, Chrome/Chromium, Safari or Midtori are showing only information that access is forbidden (it is default information from 1and1 shared servers if there is no content in main domain directory). Web providers which check websites after viruses like urlvoid.com showing no bad results too.

Because Firefox is well known browser, I would like also make visitors happy with no information about attack site. There were only archive of my old online magazine, I still got database, so as soon there will be no bad reports about that domain, I will setup new website, but now I want to keep no files there to make things easier to check by you.

Please let me know what can be done to remove that warning from ikultura.net domain. Thank you in advance.

Another long time user that has been with you for years has had enough, over to Opera where I can write an email without looking like an unprofessional dummy that can't even use spell checker.

Linux mint 14, fully updated, two different pc's both same problem with spellchecker, this problem has been going on for a long time now. Do you really expect people to use a browser without a spellcheck? This has been a 'bug' for how long now? People just go elsewhere, why wouldn't you, try running a business and sending people sketchy looking emails.

I fix PC's for a living, I used to put everybody onto Thunderbird and Firefox, do you think I still do that? Obviously like the people I know who do the same thing for a living, I put them onto Chrome so they don't ring me complaining that it doesn't work properly.

You guys are loosing market share for a reason, we need a functional non bloated browser that doesn't freeze and crash all the time, forget the fancy add-ons and themes, make the basics work because from the techiest person to the most useless pleb luddite, we all need the basics to work or the browser is a useless piece of crap.

This site is proof of how you are alienating people too, I go to register and it tells me I don't need to register for a new question, I click on that and half way through it asks me to register, then when registering it took about 6 tries for your javascript to accept it: "username too short", "password is short", "username exists". Tell us before ffs! I nearly gave up and shut the window. Anybody unfamiliar with pc's would have given up after a try or two and gone back to IE.

Please, please, get your stuff together, I love Mozilla and I love Firefox, it's named after my favourite baddies in the original Donkey Kong, ffs, I love you guys, get back to basics and make a functional browser that people prefer to IE, you are killing it, get back to basics and make it FUNCTIONAL

i was in the middle of doing research on the internet when Windows 7 all of a sudden took my computer down and said it was installing updates. I had no warning whatsoever. I don't know if this is why I am having this problem or not. But, when windows came up, I went to "Restore Last Session" in History as I always do when I suffer a crash and lo-and-behold, "Restore Last Session" is 'grayed-out', for lack of a better term. The option is there, but because it is 'greyed out' I cannot select it. I do have a sessionstore.bak and sessionstore.js file, along with, for some strange reason, a sessionstore-2 file in the following path Computer>Acer(C:)>Users>Acer>AppData>Roaming>Mozilla>Firefox>Profiles>lkhys26m.default. I don't know if this matters or not, but technically both the sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak files do not have file extensions on them. In other words, no .js or .bak, as I've listed them here but under "type" in the directory listing, they are indicated as such - a javascript file and a bak file. I cannot find any sessionstore files anywhere else. I have always had Firefox to open to the Google home page upon launching because I really don't want my browser opening a bunch of tabs from a previous session everytime I launch Firefox. However this fact has never prevented me from being able to use "Restore Last Session" in History after a crash or forced reboot. All of my History is still intact, nothing missing.

So, why is my "Restore Last Session" option in History all of a sudden 'grayed out' and I can't click it? Thank You in advance for your time and attention.

I've done it before with previous versions of FF but I forgot how. It's very simple, I want to disable this 'plugin-container.exe' and let the plugins run within the FF.exe thing.

The previous version I WAS (no italics) using I had it disabled. I clicked 'About FF' to figure out what version I was using and this farging thing just automatically updated and now I have to deal with this greedy plugin container.

So, I do this?

1: type in about:config 2: look for (need file/field names) 3: change certain fields to 'false'

Again, I just need the field names for 2 and 3. Please don't refer me to some useless link.

I'm running Adobe Acrobat 8. I'm happy with it. Firefox has a new feature that automatically disables the PDF plugin unless it's clicked. It's called the "Click to Play" feature. Even when disabled, it's not really disabled: it activates itself for "vulnerable plugins." Though there is an option to make a website trusted for plugins, there is seemingly no way to make the PLUGIN ITSELF trusted. As a result, every time I get a PDF, I have to Click to Play.

Question: How do I truly disable this stupid new feature?

There is the following support article that explains this new system, and that the only solution is trust a website, but apparently can't disable the feature or trust the plugin:
