Running a version of Linux, the default application for PDF files is "Use Document Viewer (default)", which appears to be /usr/bin/evince. I'd much prefer to use /usr/bin/okular; how can I change the default. This question is NOT about how to change the function that is automatically applied when I access a link, in this case "Preview in Firefox", but rather to the default application that I can select when I download a file being viewed in Firefox's previewer.

Hello Firefox,

This is to inform you that recently I had installed Kaspersky Total Security 2013. This product has many features than others but the main point is that "FIREFOX DOESN'T SUPPORT ALL THE EXTENSIONS WHICH THEY ARE PROVIDING. ON THE ADD-ONS MANAGER PAGE-EXTENSION, THE 'CONTENT BLOCKER', 'KASPERSKY URL ADVISER', 'SAFE MONEY', ETC ARE SHOWING THAT THEY ARE INCOMPATIBLE WITH FIREFOX 23.0.1." Please look into the matter as I love Firefox and Kaspersky. Waiting for your quick reply...

This seems to be something new but I normally use the built in search toolbar at the top right of my Firefox window to search eBay, and I usually go to the Firefox Default Home/Start page for regular Google searches. Now it seems that whenever I try to search from the home/start page, I get results from whatever search engine is specified in the search toolbar up top. So if the toolbar is set to "eBay" and I search for something on the homepage, only results from eBay show up. I don't want this to happen. I want the homepage to search Google every single time, no matter what my search toolbar is set to. It's really annoying to have to go to the search toolbar, change the engine back to Google and then perform my search. I often open new tabs to quickly search for something relevant to what I'm working on because it takes less effort to hit Ctrl+T to open a new tab that's on the front page with my cursor already in the search field, than to use the toolbar where I have to take my hands off the keyboard to use the mouse. How do I fix this. This "improvement" sucks.

The problem is that *every* search is blocked. So, if the search *result* is the same, only then is the "Disable protection on this page" going to allow me to see the result w/o taking the extra steps to allow a page to display. So, while I'm on the same main page "help.ubuntu.com", I have to click, click and then click again to view the resulting page every time that the search result is "new" to this Firefox feature.

This is not a problem with Chromiium or Midori.

Can this be fixed? I'd like to continue using Firefox . . . though this problem makes it difficult to.

I had usernames and passwords stored for several e-mail accounts on the same site. These were accidentally removed from the saved passwords list, and now I cannot get Firefox (23.0) to remember them again. I do have password saving enabled (behind a master password), and this site does not appear on the 'exceptions list.' In the Manage Password utility, there is no facility to add new passwords, only remove them. It seems, once removed, Firefox assumes one will never want to save this site again.

I'm in and out of these accounts literally dozens of times per day, and now have to log in manual every single time. How can I get Firefox to save these username/password combinations for me again?

I had firfox version 22 i guess...Now today morning, I upgraded it to v 23. It displayed a message that one of the plug-in is not compatible with it and so wud be disabled. now later on I again downloaded the plug in to check whether its working or not but neither it worked (as I had already guessed) nor its showing in the add-ons or plug-ins.

Now I am not getting why the new tab is not working. Not at all. Its so very annoying. I have googled the question and tried resetting firefox and new tab setting in about:config. But nothing helped.

I think its because of that plug-in as I read somewhere that settings may be getting overridden by one of the faulty add-ons.

Please help.
