Each time I run Firefox, whatever address I try to connect, I receive message saying unavailable. I then go to "Tools","Options","Advanced","Network","Settings", and change "use system proxy settings" to "no proxy". Then Firefox works perfectly, but if I stop Firefox and later run again, I have to change the proxy settings again. I want to make the initial change permanent.

While using firefox, a new firefox window opened and blocked further use of firefox unless I pay a fine. I cannot delete the page or even leave it. Any help?

The new window is "http://block.policehunt.org/?id=d04201572567089f9b464bbb1b065531". It says in very broken english that they recorded me accessing child porn and in order to unblock my browser, I must pay $300 via some payment outlet. When I try to close the window, a pop up asks, "do you want to leave this page?" IF you click on yes, it blinks and repeats the same pop up over and over.

The English used in the message indicates it is clearly a fraud.....it appears as though it may be a virus, although I have an internet virus scanner.

Any suggestions how to "selectively" remove this "blocking" window without having to reset firefox entirely?

Good day. I am using WiFi to connect to the internet. Someone else owns the modem and gave me permission to use it. Sometimes, the modem is working, but looses the internet connection. I want to know, does anyone know of an add-on or windows gadget or program that would let me know when the net is out.

I use a parts look up program called Microcat , the service is used with either a local database or a server database. I use the local database option , when the application starts it uses my default browser which is firefox. That part of the application works fine, but when I go to print within the application all I get is either blank tab, or a pop up with a print button that doesn't print. All these features work fine in IE 10 or 11 I have read through and followed several troubleshooting tips from the Mozilla website. I can send screen shots if required . Another thing if I try to print within the browser , all I get is a blank page.

I have a new laptop that I'm trying to move my booksmarks etc from my old laptop. I used sync once before on a laptop that I returned to the store because of repair issues. So, I know I've used it before. After I enter my email address, I didn't know my password so I reset it. When I went to use sync, I got the12 digits that were given to me on the new laptop and entered them into my old laptop. Then it would go to the next page and ask me to enter my username and password again and asked me for a recovery key. I have no recovery key. It says for me to go to options then sync and then recovery key. Well, I go to options but there is no selection for sync. It just lists the menu bar and tool bars and add-on bar. Under the Firefox button there is a set up sync option but when I tried that it said my username was already used. I would then select I've already got an account and the same thing would happen again! It asks for the 12 digits again and the cycle starts all over again. Now I've also tried my main Firefox password and it says there's no such password. So I have been sitting here for hours trying to figure this out. The first time I used it I had no problem at all! I put in the 12 characters and it synced. I don't understand why it's not working now. I really need an answer on this.

i've seen around the forums questions concerning the warning for enabling full screen, and i have no issues with the permission-giving warning.

my question is specifically when you are ALREADY in full screen, and your mouse goes to the edge of the display, and a warning that says something like:

<insert web address here> is now full screen. Press ESC to exit.

- appears. how do you remove/disable that warning? it's annoying esp. when you're playing a game and accidentally aim near the **upper edge of the screen. (i'm playing Kings Road on facebook btw lol) any help would be appreciated :)

Every time I sign in to yahoo email on my laptop and go to check mail I get a screen with all links disabled. It states that I need to upgrade my firefox and explorer browsers. It provides a 'link' that says "continue without upgrading" but that link is also disabled. I can't even sign out from that page. The same computer has no problem using explorer and my desktop has no problem. I tried starting firefox in safe mode with no success. This started popping up about a week ago, but as of yesterday the links do not work. I am completely unable to access my email accounts (all of them) from this computer through firefox.

Is there any way to get rid of it?
