I'm using Amazon's Cloud Player. This device has a limit on the quantity of devices/account. I'm interested in retaining/copying my Amazon cookies so that I can insert them into a future version of Firefox - or another browser on another computer without exceeding Amazon's "limit".

I would like to have in options>bookmark toolbar unchecked, and a hot key or shortcut key to show or hide the bookmark toolbar. Having it checked takes room, and the autohide mouse hover addons get annoying when your going type in the URL bar and not use the bookmarks.

Is there a hotkey for this. Thank you in advance.

It is quite a common event to send friends a lead into a web address for interesting articles or videos (Youtube urls). To do thjis means you do a copy and paste into the Email. When I was using Aol the address presented itself in bold type which allowed the recipient to just click on the address to be connected instead of doing a copy and paste into the address bar. Is there a way this can be done in Firefox?

If I search for a product in Google Shopping using Firefox, the results display in US dollars. I live in the UK so want my results in UK sterling.

The problem doesnt not occur in google Chrome so it must be an issue with firefox.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

NB - For anyone else with the problem see below. I sorted the problem out myself.

The FireFox' disk cache foler is set to D:\Cache (I set it so from about:config).

I cleared the disk cache, watched a YouTube video (almost 2 minute long), then looked into D:\Cache. But the video I had watched was not there! (I found two .SWF files. But their sizes were smaller than 250K. And, stand-alone SWF players couldn't play them. Therefore, they can't be YouTube videos.)

So, where does Firefox cache videos?

How to I restart Firefox without restoring an old session?

Whenever I encounter a suspicious website (like a fake anti-virus site, porn redirect, etc), I will close Firefox 6 by using the Windows Task Manager (CTRL-ALT-DEL then Applications/Close). I do this because suspicious websites often force you to click on something before you can close your browser [Example: Are you sure you want to navigate away from this website? Yes/No]. I do not want to click on anything that may install malware. After this forced termination when I re-open Firefox, it attempts to restore my last session automatically. This of course re-opens the same suspicious website and I have to close Firefox a second time with CTRL-ALT-DEL. After that second forced termination I get the "Well this is embarrassing" page and I can choose to start a new session. My question: Is there any way to stop Firefox from trying to automatically restore an old session when it is forcibly closed or terminated? By the way...In Tools/Options/General/Startup, I am set to "show my home page" on startup.

I understand that since Firefox 4, the number of days Firefox will retain history for is directly related to system hardware. Firefox calculates how much history to retain without impacting system performance.

I have firefox 6, now I want it to retain everything I have ever searched and entered and everything I will ever will.

I don't care if it slows it down, I want everything.

Maybe you know about a user-set preference I can use to accomplish it and override firefox default settings of removing my history :(

Thank you!

How do I prompt Firefox to ask to save a password. Once I say "no" it never asks again (but now I would like it to remember the password for certain sites). I have also changed my password on some sites (while on another computer) and I cannot find out how to get Firefox to remember new passwords. I'm using Firefox 6.0.1 on a mac. I'm not using private browsing. I have 'remember passwords for sites' clicked and there are no exceptions. I've tried removing cookies, history, looking at page info.
