I've been hopelessly wandering the world-wide web trying to figure out how to really, actually disable cache in Firefox. I've found a lot of solutions that don't actually, really do anything at all. Most answers explain how to delete the cache, but I need to disable it, not delete it, for all types of content, whether images, HTML, CSS, name it. All of it, always, every time, without exceptions.

The particular problem I have now is that my CSS (hosted on localhost:82) always gets remembered for some reason. I need to reload about 3-5 times before Firefox actually bothers to read the CSS file again. I need it read every single time. I've got plenty of bandwidth running to 127.0.0.1 and I do not need cache; much rather I need to know what the changes I make to my website look like.

Here are my about:config items that I've configured already:

browser.cache.disk.enable = FALSE

browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl = FALSE

browser.cache.memory.enable = FALSE

browser.cache.offline.capacity = 0

browser.cache.offline.enable = FALSE

media.cache_size = 0

network.http.use-cache = FALSE

I really don't know how to be clearer; I actually, really want the cache off. Firefox doesn't seem to understand this.

Any help deeply appreciated.

Firefox has a feature to remember my passwords, which is very useful. However, some sites mess with this so they won't save my passwords. In some cases these sites turn "autocomplete" off for the password field in their html; in other cases they appear to use some kind of javascript magic to stop me from saving my passwords.

First of all, why should websites try to stop me from saving my password? Do they really think its more secure if people have to write their passwords on stickynotes on their monitor to remember them--or worse, use the same password on all sites? I what way is it conceivably more secure? In any case it's MY business how I manage my passwords--not theirs!

I have had some success in battling evil sites that try to stop my from saving my passwords by editing the nsLoginManager.js file. But this is not convenient as I must keep doing this every time firefox gets upgraded, and it doesn't work for some sites like American Express which I think use some sort of javascript to stop me from doing what I want.

So my question is, how can I effectively make firefox remember ALL the passwords I want, when _I_ want to--and NOT obey evil websites that just want to practice CYA while actually making me LESS secure?

When I use the video tag in HTML5 or videos the .ogg and .ogv files won't play. I get a grey block with an X in it.

I have looked at other posts on this topic but the replies are altogether too geeky and I cannot understand them. Why do Flash and mp4 play without any problem, exactly as they are supposed to do, but .ogv doesn't?

I convert the video with the Froggy in Firefox thing and then upload it to my server. The .ogv plays in VLC player, so it seems OK, but something happens between creation>upload>download to browser.

I would really appreciate a reply in plain English.

Finally, a plea to the Mozilla team -- why not get with the strength and embrace H264? I've read all your reasons but they don't hold up.

I receive constant script errors and non-responsive errors using Firefox, as do many of my friends. I am using Facebook and Mafia Wars by Zynga

Here is an example of one:

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=508888121:7

I have tried the instructions on this page http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Warning+Unresponsive+script?s=script+errors&as=s

however, I get an error message when I try to access Config and enter: Navigation to the webpage was cancelled

Please help fix this or I'm going to have to use a different browser and I like Firefox better than the other options.

Thank you.

I have Firefox set up on my old XP machine. I now want to set up Firefox on my new Windows 7 machine. I can easily export my bookmarks to transfer to my new machine.

I cannot find any way to export my Options settings. In particular I need to export my lists of "Exceptions" to Cookie / Image / Pop Up Rules. However it would also be nice to Export the other settings such as homepage. I want to set up three accounts on the new machine and it will be very tedious if I must re-enter all the information - especially as it is not possible even to cut-and-paste the text from the Exceptions lists.

Is there any tool for me to save all the Options from one installation and then load then into another?

I knew which files and/or registry keys to copy it would help as I would not have a problem making appropriate registry changes if it would save me from having to go via the Options menus.

Surely there is some method to do this?

Regards. Steve

I'm running a web application written in XQuery (mostly) that returns XML data. For months that has been displaying as hierarchical XML structure, the same as if I opened an XML document with FF. Now, it just displays only the text content of the structure, and that's all run together. I have to View Page Source to see the XML.

Opening an XML document directly still gives me the desired structure display.

Running the same app in IE still displays the XML structure, so it's not a change in the app.

I assume it's just a setting somewhere, but I can't find it.

Well here's the screenshot of my problem: http://img177.imageshack.us/img177/7263/flashorsomething.jpg

As you can see preview windows on YouTube don't load. Also - user menu won't show.

I think it's a problem with flash plug-in, since the problem started right after I was updating it (even though I didn't need to I guess). And that leads to another problem; I tried to update it since instead of videos on people's profiles I would get error saying that I got Java Script disabled or old Flash version - it was wrong then, it is wrong now - now, cause it still gives me that error.

I post here, because on Google Chrome YouTube works perfectly fine.

I tried to reinstall flash, didn't help. Some suggestions?

EDIT: Also, now I see that YouTube on Firefox got some basic problems with functionality, like can't view "more" of videos description and so on... eh. It gots to be flash or something.

My Neopets and Facebook games were working perfectly but now they are not. I use my computer to play and for email and not much else and i would prefer to go back to the way things were before the last update. I know very little about computers ... i just want it back the way it was! Is it possible for someone to tell me, step-by-step in plain and simple language, what i need to do to clear out the last update?
