Yahoo Mail is asking me to add an application (a Yahoo Mail app) for "mailto" links. I don't want it. Closing the notification works for as long a refresh, which means I'd be forever closing the notification, thus I want to disable the notification in about:config but what exactly do I need to disable?

Update. Here is someone with a similar problem: http://superuser.com/questions/363827/how-can-i-disable-add-application-for-mailto-links-bar-in-firefox

Firefox is forgetting my two-step google logins. On the google two-step verification page, there's a checkbox which says "Don't ask for codes again on this computer."

But firefox keeps asking for codes.

i have firefox set to clear cookies on closing.

i also have the urls below set as exceptions, in two places:

    -in about:permissions, they are all set to allow, and also to keep offline data without asking
    -in options/privacy/exceptions

mail.google.com maps.google.com calendar.google.com www.google.com shopping.google.com plus.google.com

  • .google.com

google.com gmail.com

this forum is messing up my list, above. Each url is a separate item in exceptions. The bulleted one actually starts with a star. (good job mozilla, thanks for this ancient text editor)

how do clear all cookies EXCEPT the ones above, when i close firefox? Or, is this not a cookie problem?

do i need to include "http://"

this article did not help https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/974020

Recently, whenever I click on a website or something in a website the Mozilla Firebox window pops up and I'm forced to continually X out of that pop-up. I'm not even sure you'd call it a pop-up. But here is one that just appeared when I clicked on this to ask this question. Please help me to stop these. They have been coming up for a few weeks now and I'm tired of them. Here is another example: http://rvzr-a.akamaihd.net/sd/wrap-0.01.html?u=http%3A%2F%2Frvzr-a.akamaihd.net%2Fsd%2Fapps%2Ffusionx%2F0.0.4.html%3Faff%3D4300-1009 And the other one is above this Details box that I sent you a while ago. Thank you for your help. Judy

Using FireFox 26.0 and this morning I started getting 'Not Responding' messages during start-up. After many attempts, including disabling all Extensions and Plugins and reducing startup to one tab only, I found this repeatable sequence:

1. un-installed firefox
2. re-booted
3. installed firefox 26.0
4. got not responding when started after installation
5. closed ff
6. started ff, got not responding, closed ff
7. repeated step 6
8. repeated step 6
9. started ff, got ff Safe Mode message, selected reset ff (safe mode didn't appear to do anything)
10. firefox.exe in Process list, but no window opens
11. ended process in Task Manager
12. started ff, came up ok  !!??
13. exited ff (Firefox -> Exit), window closes, but firefox.exe still in Process list
14. ended process
15. started FF, back to step 6

Yesterday I was experimenting with two password managers (KeePass Password Safe 2.24 and S10 Password Vault 4.1), a new release of Thunderbird was installed inthe morning, and, I think, some new Window 7 updates were applied.

Only changes yesterday to FF were clearing all cookies, history and cache.

Not sure if FF was re-started after any of the above changes/installations.

Any suggestions as to what is causing this problem appreciated.

when trying to access website i am faced with a security warning since certificate is self signed. this is an internal site that is currently under testing - so it's ok to add an exception. the issue is, the option to select "i understand the risks" is completely missing, the only available action is "get me out of here"

since this is an internal site under our complete control i have performed some more tests: it seems firefox redirects the original http request to https this does not happen on other browsers (chrome and IE), also tested in a clean install of firefox running without any extensions.

even after cleaning the cache and temporary files completely, issue still remains. this site (on http) will not load on firefox, always redirected to https

even after removing apache mod_ssl from the server, and completely removing all mention of ssl on this server, connecting with firefox still redirects http to https (now results in "can't establish a connection to the server" error - but still not loading the basic http version of the site)

I have gone to about:config, browser.newtab and set the default browser to google, and as long as I continue to work in this session the new tab opens to google. But, if I log off the internet, close my browser and reopen, the first tab goes to google, but any new tab goes to start.iminent.com/startweb/1033/Newtab.aspx. Very frustrating! Please help.

I have troubles with developer tools in the inspector tab.

By moment, the panel is totally empty. the panel with rules, computed, fonts, ... is fine and the path is also active, but the main panel with the html structure is blank.

I have to close the developer tools and re-open to re-enabled this panel and after some times or some actions (don't know what exactly) the panel is blank again.

I'm using Firefox 26 (but it was the same on FF25) on elementary OS Luna ( based on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bits)

Thanks. Julien.

The new version of Adobe Flash 11 is atrocious... I want to use version 10.3, but when it's installed it always asks me if I want to activate this plugin on every video... That's really annoying. :( I've tried to set the plugin to 'Always Activate', but the option is unavailable in the addon options. Is there another way to fix this so it's always active, or do I need to find another browser in the meantime until Firefox gets their stuffs together?

I cannot resize nor move the window of my firefox browser.

Fire bug is unresponsive when i try to click anything in it, and so can download windows (as in save or cancel not the windows file explorer) with the added bonus of dialog boxes often loosing focus (though staying in front) leading to unwanted click on the web page behind them.

I am running Firefox 26.0 on Windows 7. Until yesterday, clicking on a magnet icon triggered an appropriate response by utorrent. Today, December 25, 2013, doing the same thing in the same way on any magnet icon on any site gives the "file not found" message instead of doing what it did before. I made no changes to Firefox. Using IE, I get the desired result, so it appears not to be a utorrent problem. What do you recommend?

I thought that all expired cookies should be deleted automatically by the browser. but that is not the way it happens in my Firefox (same behaviour for different web-sites).

closing Firefox and even reboot of the computer don't help. the only way to remove expired cookies from Firefox is: by hand (which means I have to choose cookie in Privacy Tab of Firefox Options and press button 'Delete cookie').

well, the good news: expired cookies are ignored by the servers (tested with user script through my virtual server) but for unknown reason still continue to be stored idle in Firefox.

Is that the way it should work?
