I cannot get firefox to read a .chm file. Old Netscape does, explorer does, chrome does. How can I get Firefox to read a .chm file?

In Firefox 24.0 -> Tools -> Options -> Applications, I cannot choose a program (hh.exe) to read .chm files. When I choose to open a *.chm file I have only the option of saving it, not to open it. Other browsers like Explorer, chrome, even old netscape 7.2 allow me to open it and the program finds I presume the hh.exe file and away you go. I cannot find a way to get Firefox (my favorite browser) to read chm files.

I chose to delete the Firefox UX's data when I uninstalled it and forgot that it shares the same profile and data with the current Firefox.

How is it possible to recover my data, maybe with a files recovery software like Recuva or something?

I've been using Firefox for quite a while, but it has recently begun opening every previously open tab when I restart a session. I only want the tabs I selected for my home page to open. I've tried going to the options and selecting "Show a blank page" on startup, but even that is ignored and all of the prior tabs open on each new start. I've rebooted the computer and restarted Firefox, but the problem remains.

Proxey server is refusing connection

I am running windows 8.1 on my lap top. I seem to have to alternate by changing my connection settings to open Firefox. After a session on the pc I can log back in with no problems. Shut down and go to log in again a few minutes later and I get the error message PROXEY SERVER IS REFUSING CONNECTION.

I have spoken to my provider and they tell e I do not have to have or should not need a proxry connection?. They also told me to try the following, which I have to admit is the only way I am now connecting to the internet.

Go to Tools-Advance-Connections. (configure how Firefox connects to the internet. SETTINGS.

In the window that opens I need to go to first option (configure proxies to connect to the internet) Here you are given three more options: 1.No Proxy 2.Autodetect Proxy 3Manual Proxy

If the box is checked for (2) above, I have to uncheck and check (3) above. Then restart the browser. It works fine....that is until I log out of Firefox. Go back in and I get the same error message, Proxy server refusing connection. This happens from time to time....not always. Some days it works fine on the last setting chosen. So I go through everything again as explained above and uncheck manual andthen I re check Autodetect....and it works. Next time it's the other way around, I just feel like a tennis ball bouncing from one option to the other and I should not have to be doing this. Never happened when I used XP or Vista?.

I have Mamaware cleaning installed and use Defender (which came with Windows 8). I have upgraded to 8.1 but the problem existed when I was running 8.

I have already tried a clean unistall and downloading the program anew. I have made sure the firewall (Defender) allows Firefox. Firefox worked for two months on my new computer with Windows 8 before I started having problems. I was hoping 8.1 would fix the problem, but no such luck.

Somehow, I appear to have installed a plugin called the Lhite Network Extension. It creates hotlinks to advertising sites from plain text "keywords" in web pages. The originator of the plugin is something called Advertising (gear symbol) Support, Inc. and their web site is www.advertisingsupport.com. The removal instructions on that site are generic and do not provide the specific name of the plugin for Lhite Network Extension.

Neither Lhite Network Extension or anything from Advertsinig(gear)Support are enumerated in Firefox's lists of plugins and extensions, nor is anything shown in the Windows 8.1 add/remove program utility. Registry searches are negative as well. Running Firefox in "safe mode" prevents the add on from loading, but I still don't know which one it is.

Any suggestions about how to rid myself of this would be appreciated.

Just open up nbcnews.com, click any article, use the back button's drop down menu to see that there is only one page to go back to, the nbc home page. Now scroll down to the bottom of the article and now check the back button again. It's full of history for this single page. So now getting back to the nbc home page requires lots of clicks. So Annoying.

May I suggest that Firefox should delay syncing the Master Password until the first time that it is actually required, even if syncing is turned on?

If you use Data Syncing then this is attempted every time you start Firefox. If you also use a Master Password then it tries to sync your passwords every time you start Firefox too. This means that every time you start Firefox it asks you for the Master Password. This is incredibly irritating.

I realize that you need to sync at the beginning of a new session but would it be possible to delay the syncing of passwords until the user actually needs to use a password (i.e. the default behavior for using a Master Password without syncing). After all, it doesn't matter if the passwords are not synchronized if they are not being used. When a password is actually required then Master Password could be requested and the stored passwords could be synchronized if the correct Master Password is supplied.

I recently downloaded FF 25.0 on a new computer (Samsung Series 9) and web pages don't render correctly though I used default settings and have same extensions (all in one sidebar and list it). I asked our tech person and he said "Your CSS isn't loading. Try clearing your cache and restarting your browser". This worked but now I find I have to repeatedly do it as many as a few times a day, with varied websites, and once it happens, all websites won't render correctly. I don't want to have to switch to chrome, please help! Here is a screenshot.

Couple days ago I've received my new PC and migrated all important data from the old one using a special W8 tool. I've also installed Thunderbird and FF anew, and migrated their setting using tools recommended here (FF Sync + MozBackup). And suddenly I've lost a possibility to open any external link in FF now no matter the source (Thunderbird or any other piece of software). Now I have to copy and paste URLs manually. It's not the best solution. Old PC OS: Vista Business, new PC OS: W8.1. Thanks in advance.
