When I click on "email a link" why doesn't Firefox actually copy the link and take it to my email client instead of just opening the email client?

I expected sending an email link would actually set up the email link in a new email, like many other browsers do, but all Firefox does is open Windows Live Mail. I then have to go back to the page I wanted to send, copy the address, go back to email and open a new, black email to paste the link in. I've been away on a Mac for a few months so I may be remembering wrongly, but I think Firefox used to do this. I'm using Firefox 24.0 on Windows 7.

Hi Folks,

I'd like to do some tweaking in the config file (about:config) but really need to know how to backup the config file (assuming it is actually a file) before I make any changes just in case I mess things up, or I didn't get the desired result, and need to put Firefox back to the way it was before I started messing with it.

Since I guess it's just one file that all the settings are stored in, what is the name of this file and where would it be located on a Windows 7 computer?

Thank you,

Lee

I have to upload the images.

when browsing images for the same I am making firefox to look into E/Folder1/A1.

E contains Folder1

Folder contains folders A1, A2, A3, and so on.

Each folder contains each image.

After uploading the image from A1, I have to upload the image from A2,

When I browse for the same, firefox will look into the recently used folder.

I do not want this. Instead firefox should look into E/Folder1 by default always and not into E/Folder1/A1

How to do this?

Hi here!! I review a lot of mozilla docs (out dated or without complete info), forums, googling ... about how to share firefox/thunderbird/ligthing data between platforms on dual/multiple boot system. Every user in same trouble are repeating (copy/paste) in the solution to share the SAME FULL PROFILE on all platforms. I review profile data and folders and I can see files and config data that are platform dependent; then I think that share FULL PROFILE between is not the best approach, for example Linux and Windows will produce several problems (and a lot of problems with the add-ons) In these same mozilla docs recommends to share only data and maintain custom profile for each platform, but not more info how to do it. Please can some kind advanced :) provide some info about the correct approach. Or a better tech info about how is possible the recommendation of sharing same profile between platforms without problems. Because with the current doc info, there is no way to get a clear answer (Almost I can't :~). Thx guys!

The URL I used to use to get to password manager chrome://passwordmgrcontent/passwordManager.xul no longer works. Is there a similar URL that can be used in FF 66?

(I know that in later versions of FF there is a hamburger menu item for this)


A little bit more info:

Just tried it on FF69 Windows and it does work, but it does not work on FF66 Mac (which is where I need to use it). Not sure if it is the FF version or the OS

I want to be able to expand web page pictures to full screen without one of two annoying pop-up mini wdws always popping up.

-One is the instructional: "______ is now fullscreen; press esc. at any time to exit fullscreen"
-The second is along the same lines, something about: "allow ________ to be fullscreen?" with a checkbox to 'allow'

I KNOW how to exit full screen. I don't want to be reminded for a full second every single time I expand a picture. As far as allowing a website to expand a picture to full screen, if I click full screen, obviously I want to engage full screen on that web page. In fact, why would firefox even give the option to disallow the function? It seems like shooting a spider with a shotgun---when there's no spider in the first place.

Hi All,

It may sound silly, but is there a description of all the options under Tabs? It seems that many versions ago, with the subject option checked, I could click on a bookmark and new webpage would open in a new Tab. This no longer happens. Has there been a change?

I must now right-click a bookmark (on bookmark bar) and select "open in new tab", or Ctrl-click on bookmark.

Is there a way to force open a new tab, by just clicking on bookmark?

Thanks.

Why can't the FireFox engineering team produce fixes for the problems for users who have Outlook.com as their email service?

If you work on an Apple Mac and use web access for Outlook.com as your email service, you cannot delete, move or rename an email folder in the new Outlook.com using the Firefox browser (FFv19). You should be able to right-click on an email folder to delete, rename and move a folder. However, in Firefox the pop-up box does not come up to be able to do these functions. In Internet Explorer you can right-click on a folder to delete, etc., but right-clicking on email Outlook folders using the Firefox (FFv19) browser does not work. Firefox and Microsoft's new Outlook.com are not playing nicely.

Does the software engineering team at Firefox give a damn? Apparently, this has been a problem for months and Firefox still has not come up with a fix.

Those of us who user Firefox and work on Apple MACs need fixes for the new Outlook.com. AND please DON'T ask me to change my email service provider because I have been using MSN (now Outlook.com) for 14 years. I'm NOT going to change my email service.

To the Firefox engineering team: Please produce/create a fix for the problem I've outlined for Outlook.com. I need to be able to delete, move and rename my email folders in Outlook using the Firefox browser.

Hello to everybody :o)

several websites, i.e. YouTube, Facebook and Google, detect the actual version of Firefox despite the fact I set a different version number (more recent) by means of the "User Agent Switcher" plugin.

So my question is twofold:

1) how can I change the "fingerprint" of my Firefox effectively, in order to make *any* website recognize the version number which I set (and not the real one)?

2) how those websites do detect the ACTUAL identity of a given browser, despite the changes to the User Agent string that one may have made by means of a switcher?

Thank you in advance to all you folks!

I would like to spawn a new instance of Firefox in a new window from a script file (python on MS windows 7) and then wait till the user closes the the Firefox window to continue the execution of my script. There are some things I have to do in my script only after Firefox has closed. (I have to do the same for IE and Chrome).

As a test, I tried to start Firefox manually on the command line with various options and have not hit on the right options. I can get Firefox to open in a new window fine (-new-window option) but could not get it to wait for the window to close to return execution to the cmd window - it would return as soon as the Firefox window was opened.

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Command_Line_Options mentions a -fwait command line option but does not describe it and I didn't see any effect when I tried to use it (if I was using it correctly).

Any ideas?

Please can anyone help me !! I am using Windows 7 64 bit and my Firefox update is regularly popping up a box that reads "Something is preventing Firefox from updating securely. Please make sure that you have the latest version from Firefox from http://www.firefox.com". I am a novice at this and don't know how to do this without it uninstalling all my bookmarks and other settings. I know I need an English version preferably British, but usually when I attempt anything like this it goes pear shaped, so if there is anyone out there who could walk me through it step by step I would most appreciate it. Thanks.
