I have been running Firefox for over a year. This is on an HP laptop running Vista. This passed weekend, I got a message saying Firefox could not open a website. I closed the browser and shut down the computer. When I tried to restart Firefox the following day, I kept getting errors saying it could not open. I was short on time so I had to use MS explorer. This morning since I had more time I figured I would try to get it working. When I double click on the icon, I get the hourglass for a few seconds, but nothing happens. I went to Windows "Installed Programs" to see if there was a "repair" option but it will only let me uninstall. I do not want to lose all of my bookmarks, passwords etc.

I can still use Internet Explorer to download if I need to.

I am looking for a HTML to JSON converter and a JSON to HTML converter. All solutions I have seen so far essentially have answers of the type "Do 3 backflips, stand on your head for 2 hours, do another 3 backflips, etc. It seems to me that someone would have produce (a) converter(s) that would convert in either direction. All I have seen are questions as to why anyone would want to do such a thing and then a solution comparable to that described above.

I am trying to mnaintain my sanity when browsing and had No-Script, Request Policy and Ad Block installed and working well. I made a mistake and some malware got in there. I reformatted my drive and tried to restore via Moz backup but it will not install any add-ons in ANY version I have tried thus far.

I need the old cache system with strict alphabetical filter, not the "intelligent" one. Is it possible to have it on this new version of Firefox ? Thanks.

Hi, is it possible to have a strict alphabetical filter for the cache suggestions in fields (like with the previous version) instead of the new "intelligent" system? For example, if I type "fire dr", I only want suggestions "fire dragon" or "fire drake" but not "dragon fire" or "dread fire". Thanks!

I was looking in my about:config for some clue as to how to remove "search with Wikipedia" from my context menu, or rather replace it with Google or something else. I discovered a LOT of "wiki" this and "wiki" that in my configuration files. "extensions.smarterwiki." in everything from my WOT to easygestures. I want to remove the wiki search from my context menu because the "edit" link on wikipedia pages makes me nervous. If every Tom, Dick, and 3rd grader can edit the page, how accurate can it be? That aside, I want to utilize other resources for search or reference but I cannot figure out how to edit it.

Could someone please enlighten me?

No printers listed in Linux Firefox 3.0.19 although about:config has both printers

I reinstalled my linux box recently, and now that I'm trying to print a web page in Firefox, I have no printers listed in the printer dialogue. I use the CUPS system, and both printers Canon and PDF-writers are shown under other Linux apps, but not under Firefox.

Nonetheless, printers are present in the about:config dialogue, I can find keys such as print.printer_CUPS-PDF.print_bgcolor but also others like print.tmp.printerfeatures.CANONPIP3000.paper.1.is_inch and print.tmp.printerfeatures.CUPS-PDF.can_change_num_copies

just to mention a few. The strange thing is some settings appear under a "tmp" section.

I've seeked the forums, but none of the problems there match mine, nor solutions solve my problem.

What can I do to add the printers to Firefox?

I assume this is not a Linux/KDE problem, as other applications correctly detect the printers.

I keep getting prompts saying that a website is unsecure and not protected. I also get prompts telling me to update, but when I follow them I'm told my operating system is too old and that I should go to Mozilla's website to get the latest version which works with OSX 10.4.11, but I can't find said version, but I do find plenty of references to a particular version being on the brink of no longer being supported.

Firefox 3.0.19 on Kubuntu9.04 (jaunty) keeps crashing when I try and download files. I have tried deleting downloads.sqlite. I have also tried creating a new profile. Neither has helped.

If I right click on a link and choose "Save link as" I can download files. But If I left click on the link the downloader menu does not appear and Firefox completely shuts down.
