Disable "File Already Exists Do You Want To Replace" Confirmation

I have automated FF to repeatedly save web pages as .txt files via the use of Selenium and VB. However, if I attempt to save a web-page as the same name as one already saved I get the warning "file.name already exists. Do you want to replace it?"

I have tried to disable this overwrite-confirmation via the about:config settings (and everything else I can think of) with no success.

Is there a way to silently overwrite files having the same name within a given directory.

Note: I am using FF version 40.0 as newer versions (somewhere between 40 and 50) do not play nicely with Selenium.

Thank you kindly,

Trip

Bookmarking a page does not create a bookmark that I can find, clicking the star a second time does not let me edit a bookmark, what is wrong?

Ctr D, clicking the star do not appear to create any bookmark that I can locate. Bookmarks|Bookmark this page used to let me choose to add a bookmark to a specific folder or location, but now I can't.

Is this related to a specific Firefox version, or to the closing of XMarks, or is it an option switch that I have missed, or a folder that is missing in my profile?

Colin.

I woke up today to the latest verion of firefox and all of my stuff gone. I tried going to the firefox folder but no places.sqlite or sessionstore.bak or sessionstore or any of the ways I previously have restored tabs. Seems like the latest version doesn't not use same file types? I tried using a program for deleted files and none of them come up. I tried restoring firefox to a previous version and that didnt work. I tried a system restore and that failed. I NEED these tabs I had a lot of important web pages saved. Please someone tell me how to do this. I am honestly done with firefox this type of stuff just does not happen to me on chrome. I cant even use session manager because firefox deleted that too! Is there any possible way of getting my tabs back? I never gave firefox permission to upgrade in the first place I set it to manual upgrade and it still ruined all my stuff. This is simply unbelievable.

Text rendering sometimes fuzzy, keyframes the culprit.

I submitted a complaint on fuzzy text quite some time ago suspecting keyframes on a webpage was conflicting with text rendering & have finally confirmed that is the case.

I use alot of dropdown menus & text inside the menus will go fuzzy during any keyframe spinning events but clear up when spinning stops however that's not the case if there's a 3d transform coded in the keyframes css & a dropdown sitting right over top of a keyframe coded with transform in it will permanently deform any dropdown text regardless if it's spinning or not & z-index prioritizing has no effect clearing up text either.

I ended up eliminating the 3d transform from my keyframe codes with no noticeable degradation of the keyframe effects & now have clear text on dropdowns as soon as any spinning keyframes end their events.

Thought you guys at Firefox would find this info useful in trying to come up with text rendering immune to keyframe conflicts that don't exist in any other browser I've seen.

Hide specific drop-marker but keep drop down functionality using CSS

Im trying to customize an add-in toolbar menu icon using user.chrome. I was able to do it in a very complicated way. Wondering if there is a cleaner way to do this.

The button is a drop down list and what I am trying to do is remove the drop-down marker from this icon ONLY and not all markers, but keep the functionality of the marker. I found the button and marker in DOM inspector but was not initially able to turn off just the drop marker. I eventually changed the icon from toolbarbutton type "menu" to "menu-button" which separated the button and the marker. The problem was if I now hid the marker the button has no events associated with it (they are in the hidden marker).

I came up with this mess below and was wondering if there is a better way to do it.

/*Hide the real icon*/

  1. addin-button toolbarbutton { visibility:collapse !important;}

/*Change the drop marker icon to match the hidden icon */

  1. addin-button .toolbarbutton-menubutton-dropmarker .dropmarker-icon {list-style-image: url(data:image/png;base64,iBLA-BLA-BLA) !important; width: 100% !important; -moz-image-region: rect(0, 0, 0, 0) !important;}

Script: resource://gre/modules/commonj...pass-dot-com/data/onloadwff.js:9

I think the end might be different each time, not sure, as cannot print it out, had to hand type this.

This error msg appears on some random tab as I load Firefox. Just started happening a week or so ago.

Other threads blame it on Skype but I do NOT have Skype on my computer! Had it on another computer long ago, deleted it because it was a resource hog even when I wasn't using it.

There must be something ELSE that is causing this error.

This is now the second week of spending MOST of my time on computer problems, namely FIREFOX! I'm really getting tired of it. Will NOT go through that process of safe mode and testing all the extensions. There must be SOME PRIOR KNOWLEDGE out there already. Why reinvent the wheel when it's already tested???

And no, will NOT "upgrade" to a later version of FF. UP/Downgrading to THIS one started all the problems! Seems every change makes it worse and I have a living to make and cannot spend all my time FIXING FF.

Laptop has Win 7 and that is ANOTHER whole mess! HATE Win 7. Have NO efficiency on it. Extensions keep getting deleted, then reinstalled, restart, that doesn't work, restart, that doesn't work, ........ and so on. Between the two computers, that is ALL I've been doing for DAYS!

Somehow, someone has had this same script error message and has found a way to fix it, and not involving Skype.
