I want to increase firefox's memory cache.

From the knowledge base, this seems to be the value that should be changed.

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.cache.memory.capacity

To verify the change, I checked "about:cache?device=memory".

No matter what the value "browser.cache.memory.capacity" is, under the section "memory",

It shows "Maximum storage size: 28672 KiB".

(the disk cache section shows correct values, btw)

Is there something wrong here?

FF ver, 52.6 ESR, 51, and several other old versions.

I am using extension for Firefox - Zoom page that is showing zoom level of the page. Recently after firefox update I discovered that this is Zoom level indicator on the right side of the address bar. That's a bit annoying to see double indicator at once. Moreover, I'd like to use the extension indicator instead of standard firefox indicator in the inappropriate place like address bar. Is it possible to remove or hide it somehow? Thanks

I logged into the Dennie's restaurant WiFi. That seemed to go well. When I clicked a Victoria's Secret tab FF sad that the Victoria's Secret cert was invalid or some thing like that and would not let me add an exception or go to the tab. Dennie's WiFi is not secure and does not require a password. How do I tell FF to warn me and let me go to the site anyway. There are several sites that have the same problem.

Hello. I can't seem to find a way to do this. I want to use a HCT in windows but want FF to IGNORE this and act as it normally would with a normal windows theme.

That's it really. The changes FF makes when it detects a windows HCT, I'm sorry to say, can mess up the appearance of many websites. Removing pictures etc. As I say, I want it to do NOTHING different if I use a windows HCT.

P.S. I have tried messing around with whatever colour options I could find, but can't seem to find what I am looking for.

I have searched Mozilla support for Location Bar without success. It shows me links to other Firefox bars, but no Location Bar. And yet Tools-Options-Privacy clearly refers to Location Bar. I have never seen such a bar in all my years of using Firefox. I had hoped Location Bar would be defined somewhere in Mozilla support but no such luck.

When I went on my hope page this morning I get a lock with a red line. The message when I click on the lock says the site is not secure. It seems that my other sites are secure since they have a green lock with no lines. How do I correct this? I contacted my internet provider and was on the phone for quite a while trying to correct this to no avail. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. Diane Gaber

I have several sites on that toolbar that I use regularly and it's a real pain in the . . neck . . to have to click several times when one click worked before. Why must people 'improve' things by making them worse? I want my toolbar back without going through a bunch more steps!
