I was having trouble with a question on a college discussion board. Every time I clicked on it, the reply was set option failed. I called support through the college. They told me how to clear all history on Firefox.Well I did that and nothing was cleared I have tried several times and the history will not clear at all. The technician stated that it sounded like java script was acting crazy. Could this be true? I have had no other problems. Is there a phone number that you can be reached at?

The history itself is saved. Also, it will let me search my bookmarks without any problems. Does this mean that the "places" folder is damaged? If not, what can i do to f… (read more)

I needed to change the password for one of my bookmarks, when I substituted the new password in the appropriate place I didn't receive a prompt for remembering the new password. I then deleted the old password from saved password in the security tab in preferences and still no prompt. Where do I turn on the prompt which I'm guessing has been inadvertently turned off?

When ever I shut down my Mac computer resets all my preferences to Safari and Mail. I do not want to use either of these programs - I use Firefox and Thunderbird. It is really annoying to have to set my preferences over and over and over again. I have set them through both the software preferences location as well as the System Preferences locations. It makes no difference to do one or the other or both this continues to happen. I realize this is more likely a Mac problem but hoping someone here has come across this and figured how to deal with it! Thank you.
