A few minutes ago I had this error, I searched all over the internet but nobody gave a concrete solution.

I tried everything: clear cookies, reset firefox, etc.

The only person who gave a solution was to restore windows in a clean installation.

It turns out that for a rare reason my computer woke up with the time misconfigured, I configured it and tried to access some files that I had in google drive, but it showed that error and it had been trying to solve it for 2 hours. Well, it turns out that I had set the time wrong and instead of putting "AM" I put "PM" that is to say, it was 12 hours apart.

I configured everything again and with the correct time and that solved the problem, I hope someone will use this information.

If I set my home page to "blank" in Firefox settings, it defaults to a blank white page. How do I change the color of this page?

Setting background color in the "appearance" section has no effect for me.

I'm on linux if it matters.

Possibly a question that has been asked before or could be extracted from the shortcuts page, but wording of the problem probably varies quite a bit.

In the address bar, when I want to go in one click to the first result that is not a search suggestion, is there a way to accomplish that (instead of arrow down for x amount of times)? A subpar alternative would then be to disable search suggestions of course.

Hello all, I regularly open up pop up windows to do my job, containing lots of column data. Until recently, the columns would squeeze down as small as they could - depending on data field and font size - meaning the bottom scroll bar was unnecessary. However, in last 1-2 weeks(?) the data columns seem happy to spread themselves out menaing I always have to scroll right to see the last few columns. Is there anything like a 'make the columns fit if they're capable of doing' command/shortcut? Thanks all.

Because of the location where I live, most of google services are blocked on the internet. Yesterday I wanted to download a device driver from www.m-audio.com but the driver's page stopped loading. I noticed a message at the bottom left of the Firefox window saying "waiting for www.google.com" or something similar. Because of that wait, I could open the page only after 4 tries and waiting way too much time. Can I filter page contents from google so Firefox skips them?

I saved bookmarks in a file ; Firefox says go to start menu and type in link shown in Firefox 's how to recover your bookmarks but my start menu does not have a search box or place where I could do that. Please tell me how to get the search box I need. My Start button only has the programs I use use above the Start button.

I run Firefox with multiple profiles, as there are several people that use this computer. I start firefox with -p <profilename> -no-remote.

This all works fine except if I'm in try to open a link from for instance in an email, I click on the link and it opens the profile manager. If I select a profile that already has an open window I get an error message stating

"Firefox cannot use the profile "Rick" because it is in use. To continue, close the running instance of Firefox or choose a different profile."

Is there anyway to have it open the link in a new tab of an already running profile, rather then having to close the profile and then click the link.

HDD was failing in my other computer. Put in a new HDD and transferred bookmarks (FFox. 16.++ on both) but don't remember how to transfer my saved passwords. Some folks helped me with this when I rebuilt this PC (the one I am using to send this info), and I remember most of the path and method but not well enough to attempt it without some guidance. The other PC is an ASUS G50VT-X5 laptop.

O/S = XP (uptodate) I have various disabled plugins that are either invalid/duplicates/not wanted that I would like to remove from the display list of plugins. Is there a way to do this?

For example: I have a disabled plugin for Microsoft Office 2003. I no longer use Office but the plugin still appears in my list of plugins.

Thanks in advance for your help

Firefox website shortcut icons on my desktop now look like the first choice one sees when right clicking a shortcut icon , then left clicking "properties", and then clicking " change icon" -- they should look like a white square with the firefox logo in the center instead of a white square with a little box containing 3 tiny symbols.

I'm running XP Pro SP3

How do I restore the original appearance?

I just updated to the newest Firefox. I'm sad that the google toolbar is no longer supported. But I'll soldier on... <big sigh>.

Seriously though: The function I miss from google toolbar is the drop down menu in the search bar, allowing me to 'drop down' and reselect a previous search phrase... what can I say, I'm scatter brained and easily distracted, so I often return to a concept multiple times a week.

How can I emulate the same function in FF 17?

I have an Apple Mac (running MacOS 10.6.8) at a remote location. I want to be able to run Firefox on this machine but with the Firefox display window redirected to my local Mac. I used to be able to do this with UNIX (e.g. LINUX etc.) systems running X11 by setting the DISPLAY variable on the remote host. Is it possible to do this using the X11 on the Mac? and, if so, do I need to rebuild Firefox to display using X11? At the moment, whatever I try, Firefox just starts its window on the system on which it is started.
