I have automated FF to repeatedly save web pages as .txt files via the use of Selenium and VB. However, if I attempt to save a web-page as the same name as one already saved I get the warning "file.name already exists. Do you want to replace it?"

I have tried to disable this overwrite-confirmation via the about:config settings (and everything else I can think of) with no success.

Is there a way to silently overwrite files having the same name within a given directory.

Note: I am using FF version 40.0 as newer versions (somewhere between 40 and 50) do not play nicely with Selenium.

Thank you kindly,

Trip

Bookmarking a page does not create a bookmark that I can find, clicking the star a second time does not let me edit a bookmark, what is wrong?

Ctr D, clicking the star do not appear to create any bookmark that I can locate. Bookmarks|Bookmark this page used to let me choose to add a bookmark to a specific folder or location, but now I can't.

Is this related to a specific Firefox version, or to the closing of XMarks, or is it an option switch that I have missed, or a folder that is missing in my profile?

Colin.

I have 2 computers. Shut them both down the evening of May 1 due to an impending thunderstorm. Turned back on the next morning, and Craig's list replies did not work. I get a small square in the middle of the screen that says 'something went wrong'. I've tried the fixes listed on the help forum at Craig's with no luck. Someone there said that the reply button would work with the Chrome Browser. Downloaded Chrome. It does work using Chrome.

Anyone have a solution? My preferred browser is Firefox.

I woke up today to the latest verion of firefox and all of my stuff gone. I tried going to the firefox folder but no places.sqlite or sessionstore.bak or sessionstore or any of the ways I previously have restored tabs. Seems like the latest version doesn't not use same file types? I tried using a program for deleted files and none of them come up. I tried restoring firefox to a previous version and that didnt work. I tried a system restore and that failed. I NEED these tabs I had a lot of important web pages saved. Please someone tell me how to do this. I am honestly done with firefox this type of stuff just does not happen to me on chrome. I cant even use session manager because firefox deleted that too! Is there any possible way of getting my tabs back? I never gave firefox permission to upgrade in the first place I set it to manual upgrade and it still ruined all my stuff. This is simply unbelievable.

I submitted a complaint on fuzzy text quite some time ago suspecting keyframes on a webpage was conflicting with text rendering & have finally confirmed that is the case.

I use alot of dropdown menus & text inside the menus will go fuzzy during any keyframe spinning events but clear up when spinning stops however that's not the case if there's a 3d transform coded in the keyframes css & a dropdown sitting right over top of a keyframe coded with transform in it will permanently deform any dropdown text regardless if it's spinning or not & z-index prioritizing has no effect clearing up text either.

I ended up eliminating the 3d transform from my keyframe codes with no noticeable degradation of the keyframe effects & now have clear text on dropdowns as soon as any spinning keyframes end their events.

Thought you guys at Firefox would find this info useful in trying to come up with text rendering immune to keyframe conflicts that don't exist in any other browser I've seen.

Im trying to customize an add-in toolbar menu icon using user.chrome. I was able to do it in a very complicated way. Wondering if there is a cleaner way to do this.

The button is a drop down list and what I am trying to do is remove the drop-down marker from this icon ONLY and not all markers, but keep the functionality of the marker. I found the button and marker in DOM inspector but was not initially able to turn off just the drop marker. I eventually changed the icon from toolbarbutton type "menu" to "menu-button" which separated the button and the marker. The problem was if I now hid the marker the button has no events associated with it (they are in the hidden marker).

I came up with this mess below and was wondering if there is a better way to do it.

/*Hide the real icon*/

  1. addin-button toolbarbutton { visibility:collapse !important;}

/*Change the drop marker icon to match the hidden icon */

  1. addin-button .toolbarbutton-menubutton-dropmarker .dropmarker-icon {list-style-image: url(data:image/png;base64,iBLA-BLA-BLA) !important; width: 100% !important; -moz-image-region: rect(0, 0, 0, 0) !important;}

Hello FireFox Fans,

For fast checkout go to 3rd paragraph titled "The situation I'm addressing is :".

In the past few years my browser of choice was/is FireFox because of its well-known widest configurability via plugins. As far as it worked me flawlessly for years, I got used to leave tabs open with pages left for later reading, todo, or reference. Nowadays the number of tabs I leave open regularly has exceeded one hundred. I've counted them it's 132 today. I congratulate for the developers, FF scales pretty well under this extreme workload :-) Strictly speaking scalED well in the past for most of time, but recently I started to encounter performance/stability issues,

As far as I've been working as computer developer for at least a decade, I hopefully found a new course on web development that starts in March this year. The training lasts 4 months, and after that they offer adequate job positions with 1 or 2 years of contract. The training is completely free for participants, because the companies pay the training costs out of the value of my productive work in top of an acceptable salary they pay for me during the contract period. It seems there's a high need of skilled web developers on the job market today - at least in my country. I decided to accomplish this new project despite I haven't done any web development before, nor have any detailed info on what will be taught exactly, but my first impressions of the project are good enough to jump in.

I decided to make my FireFox Rock Stabe before the new course starts at March 20.

The situation I'm addressing is :

With 100+ tabs open, FireFox memory usage constantly increases up to 1,5 GB, and at this point it slows down dramatically until it finally hangs or crashes, if I don't exit it manually in time. It seems that even unopened tabs use considerable resources, I have the "Don’t load tabs until selected" option always enabled. If I click on tabs one-by-one after starting FF, it takes no more than 30-40 tabs to display before it reaches the limit of 1,5 GB and things get awfully wrong. Even if I use just a few (<10) tabs extensively for a long time, the characteristic is quite the same despite it takes longer to reach the final point. It's especially true with facebook - no need to open more than 3 tabs of facebook, sooner or later FF crashes if I use facebook extensively. During this at least 1 GB of RAM is always free for any application in Windows. FF doesn't utilize all available RAM. Co-symptom is that CPU usage also quasi linearly increases with the number of tabs open, AND the page (re)load count

I suppose the normal behaviour would be that no increase in long term resource usage should occur when refreshing just one page for an unlimited number of times, or using just one tab to load pages one after another (for example by clicking links). But that's not true unfortunately, especially with facebook. For a rough estimate, it seems that each page load increases FF resource usage by about 1% (either memory AND CPU), regardless of whether it's just the reload of the current one, or navigating to another page in the same tab, or opening a new page in a new tab. The latter case the percentage is much higher.


I've counted my hardware to find any bottlenecks maybe existing : ASUS P5W-DH Deluxe motherboard LGA775 Core2Duo CPU 2x3,0 GHz 4x1 GB Geil DDR2 1066 Dual Channel on FSB:DRAM 1:1 ratio Ati Radeon All-In-Wonder X800 GT Kingston SSD SVP200S360G 60GB WinXP SP3 - this will be replaced by Win7 SP1 asap

I'm afraid it's finally time to upgrade some parts of my system, and the FF problem seems to be another good reason for that. I found that the graphic card maybe limiting overall performance since it's the oldest one and doesn't provide any desktop performance enhacements like recent ones do. I researched the topic "GPU computing" and found that a new card capable of either CUDA or OpenCL making possible to enable hardware acceleration and WebGL in FireFox should help a lot. I cannot update graphics drivers since newer drivers doesn't support my old card.


MY QUESTION IS :

What's the minimum card that provides all hardware features the latest FireFox version is capable of using ? I don't wanna spend hundreds of dollars on high-end graphics since I rarely use my PC for gaming. Is it good practice to buy 1-2 grade higher hardware in order to support future features that decent graphics cards are capable of today but FireFox is not using them yet ? (I primarily mean GPU computing with CUDA or OpenCL) What's the development roadmap regarding graphics acceleration ?

Question 2 : Will FireFox benefit from changing the CPU from Core2Duo 3,0 GHz to Core2Quad 2,5 GHz ? Core2Quad 3,0 GHz chips are still expensive on the used market since they are the top for the LGA775 platform. Or it's better to get the top Core2 at 3,33 GHz ? (I found a cheap one near me)


For first sight I will try the followings until I got better advice :

1. Install a fresh Win7 onto another partition on the SSD, install the same version of FireFox, copy all the personal settings and see what happens. 2. I have an almost same aged nVidia card here at home (GeForce 7200 GS), I'll try it under WinXP. 3. Will upgrade to the latest FF version. (The last one I hadn't done before for a good reason that I momently forgot ... probably it was plugin compatibility.)


Hope to get reasonable advice/opinions before I accomplish all the 3 tasks above. Will post the results regardless of that. Hope I was clear enough.


Thanks a lot :-))

Cheers : Peter

Hi, I'm looking for a way to completely disable keyboard shortcuts in Firefox or if possible some specific shortcuts in order to properly facilitate using a web-app for business users. The application we use is built with Alt+B as a one common shortcut for some user interactions. Currently this shortcut opens the Bookmarks menu in Firefox. Although add-ons are not a preferred option, I have tested several, including "Menu Wizard" and "Keybinder" which don't show "Alt+" bindings at all. I have also changed the ui.key.menuAccessKeyFocuses prefernce to false which does disable the "Alt" key itself (no menu bar shown when pressed), but the Alt+B combinations still works.

Is there a way to modify/disable keybindings in newer versions of Firefox? Could this be achieved modifying some configuration file?

Browsers are on versions 48 and up. Platform is Windows 7/10. System and browser locale is EN, keyboard layout is ET (Estonian).

Thank you for your replies.

Script: resource://gre/modules/commonj...pass-dot-com/data/onloadwff.js:9

I think the end might be different each time, not sure, as cannot print it out, had to hand type this.

This error msg appears on some random tab as I load Firefox. Just started happening a week or so ago.

Other threads blame it on Skype but I do NOT have Skype on my computer! Had it on another computer long ago, deleted it because it was a resource hog even when I wasn't using it.

There must be something ELSE that is causing this error.

This is now the second week of spending MOST of my time on computer problems, namely FIREFOX! I'm really getting tired of it. Will NOT go through that process of safe mode and testing all the extensions. There must be SOME PRIOR KNOWLEDGE out there already. Why reinvent the wheel when it's already tested???

And no, will NOT "upgrade" to a later version of FF. UP/Downgrading to THIS one started all the problems! Seems every change makes it worse and I have a living to make and cannot spend all my time FIXING FF.

Laptop has Win 7 and that is ANOTHER whole mess! HATE Win 7. Have NO efficiency on it. Extensions keep getting deleted, then reinstalled, restart, that doesn't work, restart, that doesn't work, ........ and so on. Between the two computers, that is ALL I've been doing for DAYS!

Somehow, someone has had this same script error message and has found a way to fix it, and not involving Skype.
