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!

Recently had a HD crash and had to re-install windows and all my browsers.

Previously, Firefox would immediately load all my previous tab but now I have to click on each one to get them to load. I have looked in the options and there is no longer a checkbox to tell Firefox to load these tab immediately. The previous version I was using had this option.

Is it still available and if so, where do I find it to enable it?

Regards Brad

I just switched to Firefox from Chrome and so far Im loving it, except for one tiny bit, which unfortunatly drives me crazy:

When I use the search from the adress bar to look up functions with dots '.' in them, Firefox always assumes these are websites, add 'www.' and takes me to ' Site could not be loaded' instead of using google to search.

Is there any way to change this behaviour in the adress bar?

my computer has both ipv4 and ipv6 addresses.

When I go to any website, the website will log my ipv4 address.

assuming the website is ipv6 ready, Is there a way to make firefox use ipv6 on that website so that the ipv6 address is logged instead of my ipv4?

Is there a proxy config or something?

Just using Adblock Plus and Firefox internal adblock is not enough to block all popups from, errr, popping up. I tried changing "dom.popup_allowed_events default" to blank in about:config. That worked, no more popups but I could not upload any thing as it also blocked the file browsing popup -.- I want to ask if there's a way to block every popup apart from the file browsing popup.

I thought this might be a Windows issue, but it appears more likely to be a Firefox problem...... Almost every time Firefox updates itself on one of my several PCs (a Dell), all of my saved logins are removed.

After some checking, I found that the actual logins file had been changed from "logins.json" to "logins.json.corrupt".

Why Firefox is doing this is anybodies guess, but it may have something to do with the actual passwords themselves containing characters that it doesn't like.......

Easy resolution - find the "corrupt" file and rename it!

Using Windows Explorer, you will need to make hidden files visible, then go to (User)>Appdata>Roaming>Mozilla>Firefox>Profiles>(71r822oe.*********), then scrol down to "logins.json.corrupt" - select, rename, "logins.json", agree to the change warning, and exit. All now works as before.

(The bits in brackets will be your own name and registry entry)

Please, Mozilla - can you try and stop this happening in the first place ?

As I am going through videos deciding which one to download then downloading some then all of a sudden without any notice RealDownloader will stop showing up, either in the "download this video" pop-up or if I right click. I've checked the add-ons to see if it is activated and it is. The only way I can restart it is to shut down firefox and start it back up. So I was wondering if there is a way to restart an add-on without a firefox restart.

I am using the free version of Real Player with RealDownloader installed with it. All my programs are kept up to date and I check every so often (like at least once a month) to be sure they are.

For a new search I open up a new tab and start typing in the Awesome Bar. Then, before I hit ENTER, I Alt+Tab to a different program in Windows and Alt+Tab back to FF with the INTENT of typing/pasting the rest of my search query, only to find out that what I had typed initially has been replaced with the new tab's URL (homepage). This does not happen when I set the new tabs to be FF's default or I use a tab that is NOT new (no problem when The problem does not occur when I navigate to my homepage from an old tab and try to search.

It's quite common for me to Alt+Tab away from FF in the middle of typing my search query so that I can type in particular phrases precisely (e.g. an error message).

Here are some workarounds that are problematic, please do not suggest them:

1. Do not set new tab to display homepage / do not have a homepage / set new tabs to be FF default then press Alt+Home to view homepage.

2. Use search bar (Ctrl+K) instead of awesome bar. Can't use shortcuts for different search engines in search bar, also doesn't give suggestions.

3. Start the query with what's on the other window; type or paste in this information first.

This problem did not exist for earlier versions of FF. It started a few versions ago.

I refer to the classic case where I have an SSD and don't want to "consume" it by watching endless videos on YouTube (and/or other sites) that are being buffered to the disk. Or does the buffering of such videos occur in RAM by default in Firefox?

I also want to speed up Firefox at the maximum.

What are the downsides of having the entire cache in RAM and, if none, why isn't the default instalation with no cache at all on the disk (browser.cache.disk.enable = false) ?

What is the best configuration of Firefox (regarding cache) on a laptop with the an SSD and 4 GB of RAM?

Thanks in advance.
