I want to erase all certificate exceptions, that is, go back to the original default set of trusted SSL certificates. I've found the Certificate Manager and its big lists of trusted things, but I have no idea which of them ship with Firefox and which of them were added by me at some time in the past. How do I do this?

Firefox automatically updates to 3.6 when I reboot and I can no longer view flash files. When I reload 3.5.11 everything works fine until I reboot, then Firefox automatically reloads 3.6 :-( Is there any way to turn off the auto update, this is a suck ass feature! Also, some web pages are not rendered correctly. You may want to test your software a little more before you push it on to us.

Google docs now gives the following message when using the spreadsheet function: U geeft Google Documenten momenteel weer in standaard HTML. Schakel over naar een ondersteunde browser om Google Documenten in realtime te bewerken en te delen. Saying it is not compatible with 3.6.12 Twitter is not posting tweets anymore. Other browsers on the same laptop work fine.

Using dual boot OS, Windows XP SP3/ Ubuntu 10.04. Same Firefox v3.16.13. In windows, using the view button in the menu toolbar, I can turn off the menu toolbar. Using Ubuntu, the same option isn't available in 'view'. I've used "About:Config" before, but am very careful and document any changes. Any time I need access to menu items, using windows, I simply use alt=_.

I could not install the flash player on my computer (linux / gnu), then the software maker told me to copy some file to the plug-ins that do not match. Could you help me? Thanks. I'm correcting this post to warn you that I still can not find the directory, ran the operations proposed, but the "terminal" prints permission denied.

Hi there, I just installed Firefox4. I was near perfect although they switch Open in New Tab/Window position. I fixed yet when clicking right on a link using userChrome.css following settings :


#context-openlink {
   -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important;
}	
#contentAreaContextMenu > * {
   -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2;
}


Anyway i have still the same when right clicking on a bookmark/menu url - it show : Open Open in new Tab Open in new Window


New bookmark... New folder...

Anybody have an idea to set option in userChrome.ss 'cause atm i'm out. Thanks in advance, Golkran

How do I stop the animations in the Chrome? They are wasteful of resources and slow down the user interface, particularly when the user interface is already being slow due to the non-multiprocessing nature of Firefox. It's like throwing cement on a tortoise.

Problem with google sign in only. This only affects firefox that i have running on ubuntu 11.04. Also use win7 on the same machine and firefox smoothly signs in there. Didn't have any issue with firefox 3.x and ubuntu 10.04 for more than a year. Just upgraded to 11.04 and firefox 6. Funnily this problem is there in chrome also. The same issue. works on win7 but not on ubuntu 11.04. Chromium works sometimes. I generally reach the login page (that too if i have just cleared the cache and cookies) get to type my password and then to 2-step verification where i enter my verification code. after that it just gets stuck at 'waiting for accounts.google.com'. Same with chrome. This just happens in one cycle of cache and cookies refresh. If I try again without refreshing then it gets stuck loading the login page and the status is seen on the status bar. 'waiting for accounts.google.com'

I have already done the following troubleshooting. 1. Tried in safe mode. 2. Tried with all add-ons disabled. 3. Disabled and then re-enabled IPv6 from the system not about:config. will try that also now.

Any help is appreciated.
