Is there a way to force Firefox 4 to offer to remember and to remember user ids and passwords for sites that use the autocomplete mechanism to block such offers and rememberings?

locked by a moderator on 2-7-2012 - has outlived its usefulness

In Firefox 3.6.16 (and presumably other earlier versions) one could force FF to offer to remember user ids and passwords for many sites by editing the file ...\Mozilla Firefox\components \nsLoginManager.js to ignore site- requested autocomplete disabling (_isAutocompleteDisabled returns false).

FireFox 4 does not use that file or any similar that I was able to find.

Can the result (FF ignores site attemps to turn off autocomplete) be achieved in some other way or by editing some other file?

I decided to upgrade to Firefox 4.0... now I cannot 1) figure how to get my tabs below the url line, 2) find a refresh button, and 3) get my status bar up at the bottom.

I've found a status bar addon, but it didn't work. I don't think I should be needing addons to make a browser work like it did before. These are not useful changes; these are just changes for change's sake...

Thank you in advance. I upgraded to firefox 4, and since then I have had a problem. When opening a new tab I have chosen to be directed to google.com. In the past my cursor automatically went to the search bar on that page when I open a new tab. After upgrading the cursor just stays in the address bar, but I would like it to automatically move to the google search bar on the page. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks again.

After I click View/Full Screen on the Firefox menu bar, I lose the main FF Menu bar. When I hit the esc key, the screen remains locked in full screen view mode. Then I have to reboot my computer to get back to the default FF menu and display mode.

Why doesn't the esc key work the way it works when I'm viewing videos in full screen mode?

Some time ago I let Firefox remember my Yahoo email username and password. Last week someone hacked into my Yahoo email account and used my email address list to send out lots of yucky spam to them. I have changed my Yahoo password, but now, just for safety's sake, I want to have that password blank whenever I sign in. How do I toggle the Firefox memory OFF so that it doesn't remember my new Yahoo name and password? I would prefer to log that name and password in myself from now on.

Thanks by advance. (ps: off topic, I just don't understand why removing things from the user: dropdown history list in the forward/backward buttons wihtout giving him the choice somewhere..)

My app tabs disappear whenever I restart or shut down my computer in Mac OS X. I don't have this problem in windows. I've looked through support countless times and no, my problem is not that I have "clear history" checked in my preferences.

Just a side note, I was really excited for Firefox 4. Seemed really cool and was very fast. This app tab thing was my favorite new feature, and I'm very disappointed that it doesn't work the way it should. And until this problem is fixed Mozilla, I'm going back to Google Chrome.

This seems like it should be the easiest thing to do in firefox but I can't figure out how to change the sites that appear in my browser dropdown list. Who/What determines which sites are in this dropdown. It's definitely not the most frequently used. I have sites in there that I've been to only once. Please advise. Thanks
