I am having difficulty reconnecting to the internet after I arouse my laptop from sleep mode. Is there a helpful solution I have perhaps overlooked?

My browser is Firefox, the OS is Vista, and my connection to the internet is through a Virgin Mobile USB modem (model Huawei E!60E), which is one of three devices that are plugged into a four port USB hub, the other two devices being my wireless mouse transmitter and a USB memory stick. It works well enough for me, except for the annoying situation posed in my question. After shutting down my computer, on restart Virgin Mobile prompts me rather quickly to connect to the internet. This it then does, and quite swiftly. BUT, if I arouse my PC from sleep mode, not only does it not offer me a prompt (apparently it is not designed to do so, according to Virgin), but also it takes five or six painfully slow attempts to finally make internet connection again which eventually seems to occur as much due to sheer chance as to any identifiable reason. I achieve this by clicking on the connect button of the Virgin prompt screen (which I have to manually activate to appear), and then keep clicking 'connect' and 'cancel' repeatedly until finally success ensues. It would be so much simpler if the condition 'sleep mode' creates with the modem could be avoided, so that I could quickly reconnect again to the internet. The time I save by not shutting down, is more than lost by wasted time trying to reconnect to the internet after 'sleep' I have tried some of the predictable fixes -- namely uninstalling and re-installing Virgin, as well as fiddling around with settings related to "Allowing the computer to turn off this device", but without success. I also note that if I go to 'Computer', the entry that appears for Virgin Mobile describes it as "CD Drive (F:) Virgin Mobile" which, of course, it is not. Would it be possible for some kind person out there to offer me an explanation and some clues as to what best to do? Regards, kevindu

Every time I mispell a URL it forwards it to some search engine. I don't want this! What if I accidentally copy-pasted something personal that I didn't intend and it gets forwarded to yahoo? On the Search options I am given the option to remove all except one of them. There has to be at least one or the Remove button is greyed out. I want ALL of them gone. I don't want mispelled URLs to be redirected to a search engine.

I got one of those pop ups, your FF is loading slow, so I said ok, then kicked me into updating sync... I had trouble logging in change my PW twice, and it worked once then not again. Soooo, questions are: 1) are firefox account and sync account the same? 2) do they have different pws? 3) do I log out of them separately or together?

4) how do I tell if I am in new Sync or old. [first time I tried there was no "disconnect" on my sync page]

Once I get accounts and PWs straightened out, I'll be back with more questions.

Sorry to be critical, but I think many of the faq and help pages are close to worthless. They are carrying too many assumptions about what you already know if you ask a question. One solution, ANYTHING mentioned [e.g. sync, account, logon, usename, etc] should have a <learn more> link.

thanks look forward to answer[s] tom

I am running the latest version of Firefox (40.0.3) with ad blocker plus as my only addon. However every time I attempt to open a new tab it take ages to open because Firefox is constantly searching for an update. This takes 2-3 minutes every time. Have tried refreshing Firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling without success. My system is Win 8.1 on a i7 Lenovo PC. All worked well until the latest FF upgrade. I have no problems with the same version installed on my laptop. Any help/suggestions would be much apprciated. Thanks.

How can I see the name of the URL before I jump to it. The message in the gray bar says "Firefox prevented the web page from redirecting to another page". I don't have one in front of me but I think the button at the end says "allow". Usually when I'm downloading I have to allow the redirect or the download window won't open. There are times when the redirect doesn't seem to go anywhere. The new page looks just like the original. In some of the questions I read the change was dramatic. Those questions I read in the forum were about turning off redirect, but since FF went to the trouble of creating an option I have to believe there's a reason. On Wikipedia I read but don't entirely understand all the reasons for redirection, but I saw enough to realize that turning it off is not for me a good idea. I imagine that if FF is about to send me to the new page then it knows what the URL is. It doesn't know what I'll encounter there, but it knows the URL "name". That is to say "www.bad site.com" or "www.minor change to preserve bookmarks.com". So how do I see what the name of the site is before I allow the jump to it.

When developing JavaScript, I tend to generate a lot of logging output. In newer version of Firefox the buffer of the console window seems to be very small, so that most of my logs are being lost.

How can I increase the buffer size of the console? To be honest, I think this should be in the preferences menu.

I understand that most people are chasing and stuck with the limitations of using I-Pads (Idiot-Pads) with only two thumbs - LOL! However we use multiple displays (sometimes 2, 4 or 6 simultaneous displays depending on a client's needs) and it is desirable to NOT have the TAB function activated. There is nothing more annoying than to have a tab open every time a download is done or an app wants (immediate!) attention. It was (tab interruption) nice to (tab interruption) have (tab interruption) been able (tab interruption) to have (tab interruption) a new (tab interruption) window open and (tab interruption) to stop all (tab interruption) tabs from opening. Annoying isn't it? The "Tabs Feature" is more annoying than having spam popping up!!! We expect your product to be better than "Explorer" not the same or worst! We generally use Apple (for artistic graphics), Microsoft (for "Windows exclusive" business programs) and Linux (for Internet security) systems on various machines so we get to compare what everybody has created. We never use Linux "Unity" because it is worse than the Apple and Windows Desktops! We are not "Idiot-Pad/Phone" (oops - I-Pad/Phone) users! We are systematically migrating our clients away from Apple and Windows as Linux software improves in functionality and compatibility and provides CHOICES! Thank you

Hello,

I use firefox for work and use only certain sites and this message is really annoying, especially for intranet sites. So, I really want to know how to totally disable this security type of checks.

I already spent to much time and this, I don't want to do debugging or stuff like that, I just want to totally disable any check for "untrusted sites" and yes I am fully aware of the dangers, attacks etc.

And actually I find it quite annoying that Firefox blocks me from accesing something I want. Warnings are OK, but totally blocking me, not even "I understand this, add exception ... bla bla" is not kosher.( the error is sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Thank you.

The question:

Can Firefox show resolution of image before its name in title? If an image has a name too big I can't read its resolution, and that bugs me.

(asked by supasd)

I've done some research, not yet successful.

Would any of you guys happen to know how to do it? What's the smartest/most efficient way? Can it be done with a userstyle? or is a userscript or add-on needed? Feel free to provide any type of suggestion or solution whether it is userstyle or whatever.

I used to be able to click MP3 files, way back when, and Firefox would ask where I wanted to save them. Nowadays it opens a new tab with a flash player. Clicking on 'unknown' files, like .sid, .prg, .zip, .rar pops up 'This is a BIN file. [Cancel] [Save]'. It does not give me a checkbox for 'always do this'. I would like the option to edit so that some file types, such as PDF, regardless of mimetype, always get opened in a new tab if clicked. Also some file types, based on extension, always go directly to 'Where do you want to save the file?' dialog box, regardless if there's a builtin player or viewer or not. In my Firefox (41.0.1 Ubuntu 14.04LTS 32-bit) I never get the 'do this for these files always' choice anymore. Googling led me to delete my mimeTypes.rdf file, and since then even 'well known' file extensions, like .zip, are treated as BIN files and I get the Cancel-or-Save box for those, too - again without the choice to 'always save BIN files'.

I innocently had a "supposed" reliable company put ads on my site with their coding.

I now learn that they are putting "unwanted software" ads on the site, triggering the notice that the site has "unwanted software" and warns users to go away. This is very damaging to the site.

Now that i have removed ALL of the offending company's coding from my site, how do I get rid of the notice? Specifically, where on the web does Firefox (and others) get their info from and how can I contact them to get the warning removed?

Thanks for any help.

Somehow in my quest to add AOL to available "mailto" programs (which I belatedly found out how to do via an add-on), I think what I did was inadvertently create a bogus https address that shows up on the File>Email Link selection as file "IOSX6AAU," which I can not find anywhere in a search on my computer. When I click it, I am asked what application I want to use to open it. I've tried several hours of Help topics around setting or changing default programs, and it doesn't show up at all under Firefox menu's Options>Applications>mailto display. It doesn't affect the operation of my computer, but it is an annoying detail for which I have taken up an annoying quest to correct. If someone knows the answer to this riddle--and also, out of curiosity, how I managed to create this situation--I would be grateful to learn it.

I'm using firefox for windows 7. My firefox now has version 41.0.1. This problem, however, was happened in older versions too.

When I visit https://www.google.com/, then drop down the menu [Tools]-->[Page Info]-->click the [Security] icon-->click the [View Certificate] button. In the Cerftificate Viewer dialog, click the [Details] tab and it will show the Certificate Hierarchy tree. The tree shows like below:

 GeoTrust Global CA <- Google Internet Authority G2 <- google.com

But when I use "openssl.exe s_client" command to test www.google.com:https, it shows below hierarchy:

 Equifax Secure Certificate Authority <- GeoTrust Global CA <- Google Internet Authority G2 <- www.google.com

Does it mean that the certificate "GeoTrust Global CA" is still a intermediate certificate which is issued by Equifax but firefox think it is a root CA ?

I checked the public key of the certificates "GeoTrust Global CA" retrieved from both firefox and openssl, and they are the same as below:


BEGIN PUBLIC KEY-----

MIIBIjANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQEFAAOCAQ8AMIIBCgKCAQEA2swYYzD99BcjGlZ+W988 bDjkcbd4kdS8odhM+KhDtgPpTSEHCIjaWC9mOSm9BXiLnTjoBbdqfnGk5sRgprDv gOSJKA+eJdbtg/OtppHHmMlCGDUUna2YRpIuT8rxh0PBFpVXLVDviS2Aelet8u5f a9IAjbkU+BQVNdnARqN7csiRv8lVK83Qlz6cJmTM386DGXHKTubU1XupGc1V3sjs 0l44U+VcT4wt/lAjNvxm5suOpDkZALeVAjmRCw7+OC7RHQWa9k0+bw8HHa8sHo9g OeL6NlMTOdReJivbPagUvTLrGAMoUgRx5aszPeE4uwc2hGKceeoWMPRfwCvocWvk +QIDAQAB


END PUBLIC KEY-----

Maybe this is a bug that firefox will miss the intermediate certificate when it encounter the circumstances like above.
