Re: No preferences avalable after clicking EDIT. Why?

There are a few things wrong with your Firefox that we need to get fixed before we can continue:

  1. Update Firefox. Update Firefox to the latest version. Make sure you are on Firefox 17 when you finish updating.
  2. Update your Plugins. https://www.mozilla.org/plugincheck/

Then, after doing that, to get to your Firefox options, you need to go to Tools, then Options. Edit>Preferences is only on Mac.

Thank you for the reply Tyler. Ran out of time today to try your fixes as i am away for a couple of days. I should be able to try this out over the weekend and will let you know how things worked out. frosty girl

See also:

  • "Clear the Cache": Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"
  • "Remove Cookies" : Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"


(actually "Edit > Preferences" is for Linux, for Mac it is "Firefox > Preferences")
