Several months ago, the news websites started re-loading their home page. This is very annoying, as when it comes back, it doesn't return to where you were reading. As a result, a lot of scrolling is needed to go back and continue. I've contacted them, without a relevant reply. (Clear your cache) Is there a way to stop the auto-reload through the Firefox settings? (Using Win 10 & XP).

I really enjoy the older version of Firefox, because i REFUSE to use my computer without Kaspersky. got it? > Kaspersky is MORE important to me than Firefox (G.Chrome is my backup)

I now have KIS 2016, and I like its hexagonal icon, showing attempts it is blocking (it is set to block). Firefox has 3 times now REMOVED this icon, yet shows that the Kaspersky Protection is still an enabled add-on. I have had to uninstall KIS 2016 3 times to get this icon back. When I click on the gear to select the bottom choice "reset all add-ons to update manually", nothing happens. No checkmark shows, In Options/ Advanced I have selected "never check for updates". I am getting tired of wasting my time re-installing KIS 2016 to get this icon back. In about:config I have toggled FALSE to app.update.auto, app.update.enable and app.update.silent. What can be done besides removing Firefox? (I will NOT install the newest Firefox because it is incompatible with KIS).

I want to know how to stop FF loading ONLY a particular image (while image download is still happening) on a webpage without affecting the other images downloading.This is because during the downloading preview I might realise that the image is not what I wanted and I can stop it loading and thereby save myself some precious bandwidth.Heartfelt thanks in advance to all who reply to my question.

Hello:

I recently changed to Mac OS X Version 10.9.5 and came with it Firefox 33.1.1. Now the 720p and higher resolution options are no longer available for Youtube videos. What should I do to access those options?

(Meanwhile, the Safari Version 7.1.7 (9537.85.16.12) on the machine has all the options.)

I'd appreciate it if you'd kindly tell what I should do.

Thank you,

R.

Hi,

I am developing a java/selenium based application and need to fake a microphone/cam and pass media i.e. audio and/or video files to the browser.

I have been able to successfully do this in Chrome using the below code snippet:

          DesiredCapabilities capabilities = DesiredCapabilities.chrome(); 
          ChromeOptions options = new ChromeOptions();
          options.addArguments("--allow-file-access-from-files",
                                                 "--use-fake-ui-for-media-stream",
                                                 "--allow-file-access",
                                                 "--use-file-for-fake-audio-capture=D:\\PATH\\TO\\WAV\\xxx.wav",
                                                 "--use-fake-device-for-media-stream");
           capabilities.setCapability(ChromeOptions.CAPABILITY, options);
           ChromeDriver driver = new ChromeDriver(capabilities);


Are there similar options available in Firefox to achieve the same capability? If not, how can this be done? Any help will be helpful.

Thanks, John

When watching a movie online, where does it go on my computer? I know it is downloading to my PC while streaming because can see it in the progress bar of the video player, but when I search for the file using all the latest search tools, i can never find the file, in cache, or temp, or whatever. I am using FF, and the file has to be somewhere, I am just looking in the wrong place.

I deleted firefox as I was having some issues with the browser. I did a clean install. I'm using Mavericks and firefox 33.0.2 version (because I went into time machine to recover bookmarks since the new version firefox 39 did not have them)

When I downloaded the 33 version, firefox opened but no bookmarks? I have tried: 1. going to library in time machine and trying to find the "bookmarks profile folder or Firefox Profile Folder---NOTHING?

Any ideas? if this bookmark folder gone? otherwise where is it?

Thanks
