First, let me explain. I work in a support role for a company that utilizes certain element management systems to monitor and troubleshoot network faults. Due to our company's security and application support policies we are forced to use a dated version of Firefox and Java to access the EMS's webserver.

The problem: With the recent update to Mozilla's blocking policies the Java version we utilize is being blocked and access to the site no longer functions properly. We need some method of workaround that will enable us to circumvent the block.

Disclaimers ahoy: we actively and willingly acknowledge the risks that are inherent in actions such as I request. I would ask that discussion pertains to the topic as we need an immediate workaround to access our tool and a long-term -safe- solution will be cooked up with the help of our company's processes.

I am happy to provide any details that may be needed.

Thanks! EDIT: I resolved the issue myself: see reply below.

I went on vacation, when I came back the following websites were blocked. Facebook, Cracked & TMZ. I cannot access them from this computer either with Fixfox or IE. They can be accessed by other computers at this work. Is there a way to unblock them? With Facebook, I get the message saying I'm not signed onto the internet. With the other 2, I get redirected to Yahoo.com. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks

When I'm on any website and I click anywhere in the website there is a blinking bar - sorry, don't know the technical term - like you would find in any new document waiting for the next character to appear to the left of it. It's almost as if FF - not the super-team - want me to add test to any page I find but it is just a weird mistake.

I assume it's because of this glitch (assuming) that when I go to press the up or down arrow keys it no longer cascades the screen smoothly like a parade of content; instead it just hops from top to middle to bottom and that's when it does anything. What gives?

What are the KEYstroke(s) used to CLOSE the active tab in the web browser? I am reluctant to use a mouse where I can use keystrokes, as the mouse is a much slower process. In fact, can I find a list of all key strokes which can be used in Firefox, e.g. ALT+S followed by R (once or more) and ENTER used to restore previous browsing session; or CTRL+F to search for a specific word or term? Thank you.
