Is there any practical way to delete history for a specific site? I can remove cookies of a site manually, but deleting history is not that easy. Also i know if you press delete on address bar when links appeared, those links would be deleted. But there are hundreds of them in history, so that's not a practical way.

I accessed an ftp site of a magazine I am submitting an ad to, with their permission, using their username and password. I can see the file directory. When I try to drag and drop my file there, it won't upload, it only tries to open or save the file on my computer. Is there a specific tool needed for uploading files? Thanks

How do I PREVENT tabs/sessions restoring when restarting Firefox after a forced close/crash?

So... I'm running, say, a Google search, and I click on a link I think will be useful. But unfortunately, I've been taken! I get redirected to some scary Website I don't want to be at. I try to close the page, but a dialogue box pops up saying, "But wait! Don't you want to download our dangerous trojan horse? Y/Y?"

I don't want to click ANYWHERE on the dialogue box for fear of making the stupid situation I've gotten myself into worse. I can't close Firefox because it's "waiting for a response from you" so I force-close it from Task Manager. Whew!

EXCEPT then when I restart Firefox, it "helpfully" tries to restore my session... with the scary site with the scary dialogue box.

If I force a close a second time with Task Manager, Firefox fails to restore it again, so I can continue on my merry way and remember to be more careful on my searches, but it's damned annoying when it happens!

How do I make Firefox NOT want to restore sessions/tabs? All support info is about ENSURING session restoring, not prevent it!

And frankly, I can't think of a single time I'd actually want to restore a session after a crash. Worse comes to worse I'd rather just start from scratch anyway.

This doesn't happen often (I like to think I'm not entirely a moron and can avoid obviously harmful sites most of the time), but it's annoying when it does. I can keep Task-Manager closing until it won't restore, but I'd rather just have nothing restore at all!
