Hopefully someone who uses Firefox on a personal desktop computer that is not connected to a network can answer this question:

In Internet Explorer, I know that unchecking 'the Automatically Detect Settings' option in the LAN settings under the Connections tab allows webpages to load faster.

In Firefox, there are four Internet Setting Configurations: 'No Proxy,' 'Auto Detect Proxy Settings For This Network,' 'Use System Proxy Settings,' and 'Manual Proxy Configuration,' 'Auto-Detect' being the default option.

1. Which of these four settings allows webpages to load as quickly as they would in IE by unchecking 'the Automatically Detect Settings' option and what is the order of the other three configurations from 'fastest' to slowest?'

2. Under 'Cached Web Content,' should the 'Override Automatic Cache Management' option be checked? If so, how many MB should the cache be limited to? Right now, the option is unchecked and set to 350MB.

Some webpages are loading slowly so perhaps the above settings need to be changed.

Also, is there an 'Email Notification' option at the top/bottom of each thread created so that I know when someone has responded?

-Much appreciated.

When I used to click on a PDF file, it would automatically open in my default PDF viewer. Now it askes me to save even though I have set in preferences that PDF should be opened automatically with my PDF viewer.

Now I have to wait for it download, then click on it again. I do not want these files saved permanently, they should save to the %temp% directory and be automatically opened in the default program. Please tell me what I need to do to get this working again.

Thank you!

Under about:preferences#security, you can choose what sites can download add-ons without you needing to allow it thru the Exceptions button by Warn Me When Sites Try To Install Add-ons

The defaults are; marketplace.firefox.com and addons.mozilla.org

But every time Firefox is restarted, this list is deleted. Even resetting Firefox does not fix this. I deleted the prefs.js file, but no joy. I checked, and found this enter in the file, but it will not display when Firefox is started.

dom.mozApps.signed_apps_installable_from;https://marketplace.firefox.com

I even downgraded from Firefox 34.0.5 to 33.1.1 but the issue is still there.

As far as I can tell, this is the only setting that is having trouble.

I just noticed that I was carrying a cookie from google. I run a strict cookie policy and I had made, previously, an exception to "allow for session" cookies for books.google.com . I noticed today, in a completely new session, that I was carrying a google cookie for " .google.com ." I have tried to delete this cookie several times. FF "acts as if I deleted the cookie. I close the cookie GUI and there it is again...just like now...

Name: PREF Content: ID=996ac2fe99a32ac8:TM=1418165280:LM=1418165280:S=-EYElo0JUfSC84AS Domain: .google.com Path: / Send For: Any type of connection Expires: Thursday, December 08, 2016 4:48:07 PM

I deleted the exception for books.google.com closed and restarted FF, looked at cookies and there it is again! What is up with that? Just typing this message in, I have deleted and found "reborn again" this cookie. I don't want it. I do not want to delete "all cookies" as some are the core of my security policy in managing my websites. I have tried typing into the cookie GUI "google.com" and set to "block" and it is there (the block), I have also set a "block" for .google.com and the cookie reappears.

So what is going on and why doesn't any of the usual methods work? Is there still some "hidden" crossovers between google and Mozilla? I know Mozilla has cooperated with Google in the "safe browsing" area, and from local appdata folder I see an many "goog..." files.

Do I have to turn this off to get google off my computers cookies?
