I would like to completely disable the "this connection is untrusted dialog." I am an administrator and deal with many intranet sites. It is not cost effective to set an exception for each site. Corporate standards require us to use either IE, or Firefox, and I would prefer not to have to use IE.

To be clear: I am not looking for a solution that lessens the amount of overall clicks, like in browser.ssl override behavor in "about:config" nor am I looking for an Add-on (like "remember certificate exception"). I am looking for a way to remove the "this connection is untrusted" dialog completely.

I have two main printers to use at home and whenever I print a web page, Firefox automatically prints using the non-default printer. If I select the default printer from the drop down list, it works fine. I shouldn't have to select the default printer every time I want to print.

I am trying to download firefox 3.6.10 from the ftp server (yes, i know that 3.6.12 is available, but i need 3.6.10 to resolve a plugin issue).

For some reason, I cannot start the "Firefox Setup 3.6.10.exe" download from "ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/3.6.10/win32/en-US/". I think the file is missing on the ftp server?

Thanks

This is one of those annoying little things. I enjoy working the Samarai Sudoku puzzles available from djape. The solutions for all the different puzzles are available all on one page: http://www.djape.net/sudoku/wp/index.php/solutions/

For the puzzles, I can right-click on the puzzle image, have it open in a new tab, and print it from there. But the solutions are different - they are png graphics that are a link from the solutions page. I can't just right-click, because the image is a generic blank puzzle graphic. The link takes me to a .png file, but I can only choose to open the graphic with Preview or save the file. I would rather open it in a new tab and print it from within Firefox, because the page title (and thus the date of the puzzle) can appear on the printout and I can know which solution goes with which puzzle!

I looked for add-ons that might allow me to fix this - no luck. The Firefox preferences only let me choose between the QuickTime 7.6 plug-in or Preview, and they both just open it in Preview.

Whenever a web page just has a png graphic as part of its page, that loads just fine (including the graphics on the Mozilla support site). Why is this a different issue just because it's accessed by a link?

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I switched from a PC to an iMac almost a year ago, and continued to use Firefox as my browser. Initially, it all seemed to work as expected. After awhile, though, I found that website usernames/account names were no longer being saved. For example, my wife and I do online banking. Our bank's login page allows us to ask it to remember our account number, and an associated name. In the past, we could toggle between the two accounts, provide the appropriate password, and be logged in to the appropriate account. I've tried just about everything I can think of. Most of the support topics related to this focus on having Firefox save passwords. I don't want this, just for usernames and accounts to be remembered. Any help would be great!

I have inserted several hyperlinks in a 2010 Word document. The links will not open, but a balloon pops up saying I need to press cntrl + click. Tried that and it does nothing. All my Trust Center settings are set up correctly in Word. I don't use IE, so the MS help center is no help. Has anything changed in Firefox to cause this problem?

If I expand a web page using Control +, how can I make sure the next page I go to on that site will also be in expanded mode, and the 1st page will still be in expanded mode when I come back to it? This is automatic in Chrome browser.

Right now the pages always revert to small size. It's a hassle having to expand them every time to make them readable for my vision-impaired eyes.

After getting search results in Google, I click on a subject, then when I click "back" it returns to the top of the previous page. It's like it doesn't remember where it was. One fix I found was to change cache-control in about:config. But I can't find it. Where is I located? Another fix is "Restore Scroll Position" does this work on ver 3.6.12 ?

TIA

This is not a specific question, as it is more of a general frustration with Firefox. I notice Firefox is much faster if I disable many add-ons I have installed over the years. It seems like Firefox gets a bad wrap because some add-ons slow down Firefox. Aren't there benchmarking tools available to show before and after results of using an add-on? I am using 5 out 19 add-ons at the moment and performance is a lot faster. All this time though, I just thought Firefox sucked when disabling add-ons leads me to believe that the culprit for the slow performance is due to an add-on.

Anyway, I think if Mozilla wants to protect their reputation more, the benchmarking tools should be a tool a browser user can interact with.

I tried to delete all cookies using Tools->Options->Show Cookies->Remove All Cookies. But all deleted cookies keep coming back after few seconds. I suspect there is a malware doing this. I run into this problem in the past. It was caused by an AddOn called something like * xg.dll by Relevant Knowledge. When this add-on was removed the problem went away. But now, it comes back again.
