Greetings,

I'm currently experiencing a problem using JavaScript with Firefox. I can load fine JavaScript in the website, and it's enabled and everything. In that sense, JavaScript is fine.

However, when I try to run a JavaScript with the "command", "javascript:" in the browsing bar, it doesn't works anymore. I can't even do simple stuff like "javascript: alert("Hi!");". I wish to know if there is some way to fix this. I do use this "feature" pretty often to test small scripts.

Thanks.

I do not want ANY program to offer to remember ANY of my passwords. Firefox REPEATEDLY asks to remember this information any time I log in to work or personal sites. I am quite capable of remembering my own passwords, and the pop-up key icon is really really annoying. How can I stop this feature?

Hi,

I use Firefox 6.0.1 on Windows 7.

I installed Free Desktop Clock 2.37 from Drive Software, and then Firefox was hi-jacked, though I carefully chose the custom installaion.

Edit: Free Desktop Clock itself does not hi-jack Firefox. It's another program (name forgotten) bundled with Free Desktop Clock that did it, adding a toolbar, changing the homepage, changing the default search engine, etc. Actually, those forced alterations can be changed back easily, such as a resetting of the "keyword.url" pref. So, "hi-jack" may be a description that's too strong.

Anyway, I have managed to clean it up -- unsolicited toolbar, forced homepage, forced default search engine, etc.

But there is still one problem.

In the dialogue window of Manage Search Engine List, which appears when you click the drop arrow on the left of the Search Bar and then click Manage Search Engines, the Restore Defaults button is disabled (grayed out).

How can that button be re-enabled?


Thanks.

I recently purchased a new computer, and now my website (www.tree.org) shows in italics! It is probably not the fault of the computer (ASUS 1215B), because the problem only appears on Firefox. I upgraded to the latest version (6.0),and it still shows in italics. In Google Chrome the pages display correctly. However, my desktop computer, running the same versions of Firefox, displays correctly. I thought my font file might be corrupted (Goudy Old Style), so I copied a known good font source (from my other computer that displays correctly) -- no change. I have tried clearing cache.

  All I can figure out is that there is something between the ASUS processing and Firefox that is causing this.  I have written also to ASUS, but this problem baffles me.  Any ideas?

I am using my work computer to log into gmail, aol, etc. via Firefox. And because of security, I NEVER want Firefox to save a password for any website I log into. Consequently, every time I log into anything via Firefox I get that annoying drop down menu asking if I want to save the password, never save the password or not now. If there a way for me to turn this off completely and stop asking me that and NEVER save a password?

Various Firefox users have previously reported being unable to use McAfee Site Advisor with various versions of Firefox. I have the updated version of Firefox (6.0.1) and have been able to use the Site Advisor until September 3, when I renewed my subscription to McAfee Internet Security, which includes Site Advisor. Now Site Advisor no longer works with my Firefox browser. McAfee says that Site Advisor does not work with the "Beta" version of Firefox, but I am not using the Beta version. When I informed them of this, their response is, in effect, "Not our problem."

Any suggestions?

This has a much greater irritation value than it may sound.

Same thing with clicking a website from, say, google.
