In the good old days of Dial-up/Serial Comms links, and even today with Telnet, it's possible to get the Terminal to send periodic "no-ops" to the far end to keep the session open/ stop it from timing out with extended gaps between activity. Is it possible to get Firefox to do this too please? I wounder if it's possible to send some form of periodic auto-mouseclick in a set area of the webpage? I'm not looking to circumvent lack of activity session termination entirely as I only want to arrange a slightly prolong the gap.

Some websites report that I have an old outdated version of firefox. But this is not true. I always use the latest version in 64bit under Windows 7. One of these websites says I use Firefox 57.

I cannot get access to these sites. What may be the reason? I read this could be an outdated version of wordpress that these websites are using.

When I click on "show details" below, it also reports Firefox 57 but it is 76.0.1. What's wrong?

M computer (still running W7) auto-updated FF to version 73.0.1 and two things happened. First, the tabs now cover the navigation bar, and second, the "plus" sign to the right of the tabs disappeared so I can't go to my pinned tabs or add a new tab.

Any help will be appreciated. I do have a userChrome file, but it was a copy and paste and I don't know how to adjust it to correct these things. Or if there's something in about:config? I just don't know what I would try to change.

I've been trying to take a screenshot, but can only grab the webpage and not the "frame" so I can't demonstrate what I'm talking about, but basically the tabs are sitting right on top of the navigation toolbar, obscuring it.

Thank you all for your help.

Since a recent update, I now see WAY too many login suggestions for a website's username field. The issue is that the site has the same subdomain as other sites that I use on my company's network.

For example, if the following sites exist: aaaa.lan.domain.com bbbb.lan.domain.com cccc.lan.domain.com ddd.lan.domain.com etc., then when I browse to the login page for aaaa.lan.domain.com, the login suggestion popup will have ALL of the various logins for ALL of the various subdomains. There will be a huge popup with numerous logins that aren't even usable for the site I'm on. Firefox didn't do this until just recently (like a week ago or so), and before, it would only suggest the logins for the exact site you were on.

Is there a way to force the old behavior?

URI paths can be used to access internal resources in Firefox.

For example, the URI: chrome://mozapps/skin/extensions/rating-won.png relates to the real physical folder path of: ... /omni.ja!/chrome/toolkit/skin/classic/mozapps/extensions/rating-won.png

What is the chrome:// URI for the this particular icon?: ... /omni.ja!/contentaccessible/html/folder.png

It is higher up the tree than the usual top-level items, and I can't figure out the correct chrome URI for it.
