Some web sites allow files and free mp3 tracks to be downloaded by right clicking on an icon and selecting "save target as ...". But Firefox does not have this option. How do others handle this? I have had to go back to Internet Explorer to use this privilege.

I have installed some themes(skins), and I'd like to know where they are located on my HD because I'd like to make some modifications on them.

I have searched in the firefox profile directory with no success.

The 'extensions' folder contains extensions like 'download status bar', 'flashblock' and 'cache viewer', but not the themes.

Thanks a lot.

This just cropped up today. My SOP is to type words and phrases into the main browser mini-window and get google search results. I have started getting BING searches. Horrors. I don't want to type in teh search bar mini-window. I want to permanently block anything but google searches. If I wanted BING for some reason, I would go to bing.com and search there. But I won't do that.

Infinite "Press OK" dialogs from bad advertisers are allowed to hijack Firefox. How do I stop them?

Some "nasty" advertisers use a popup dialog that says "Press OK to Continue" or something along those lines. I know the OK button will take an action I do not want to allow, but the advertiser is exploiting something in Firefox to infinitely generate new dialogs whenever one is closed, until I press OK. During this, the Firefox browser will not allow me to close the offending tab or the offending browser window, so my only escape is Task Manager. After this happens I cannot restore my previous session because that session contains the hijacker.

I have included a URL that generated a popup that had this behavior, but it may or may not show up repeatedly, and it appears plenty of other places online as well.

Please take action so that an open dialog cannot prevent a tab or browser being closed.

WARNING: Following link in "URL of affected sites" may result in unpleasant browser behavior as described above.

When typing into the address bar everything goes to bing search now. I have done everything from changing keyword.url to starting in safe mode to completely uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. Nothing works and it always goes back to a bing search whenever I type anything in.

Im trying to manually import some add-ons into firefox: i have an off-line computer i use for development, i cant add any add-ons from the firfox site to this computer as it is off-line, so i use FEBE environment back up to export the add-ons from this on-line machine, and take them over to the off-line computer on a drive. I have tried dropping the xpi files into the plugins folder and restarting firefox, but no luck.

Anybody have any suggestions? Is there a way of telling firefox to look locally for add-ons? Rather than it looking to the firefox site?

Have searched a bit but found nothing.

Hi, This has always been an issue with FF. I share my PC. My partner has a Master Password. I do not. However every time I use Firefox I am asked for the master password, and this is repeated (over and over) every time I open a tab for a site on which he has a password set. I have my own accounts and know my passwords. I do not want a Master Password and do not want to access his accounts. How can I cancel the MP request and simply use firefox withouth being face with that annoying MP pop-up every few minutes!! Its driving me nuts. Please save me. Thanks

When I right click on firefox window in my taskbar it shows a "recent" section that displays my recent downloads above the "close this window" and other options. I find this annoying and I would like to remove it. I already have set firefox to not remember my download history, but that didn't help.
